Battle for Best Rock Song In History: Day 5

The results for Day 4 are below, and please peruse- for now though, Day 5 playlist is below. The votes are due Monday, September 9th at 11 PM EST/8 PM PST! Votes still open for this match-up! Give it a whirl if you haven’t yet!

As always we truly appreciate your listens over the quite diverse group of songs involved in this tournament. Word of advice for parents- 90s Metal Rock is most certainly not kid-friendly. That said, in addition to the RATM/Korn/Marilyn Manson/NIN dark rock quartet, we are going deep into the earliest of country western recordings, slowing down to reflect on the singer songwriters of the early 70s, and closing things out at the end of the set with some late 70’s New Wave. Have a wonderful September weekend!!!

Also I am not sure there is any other webpage in history with Jimmie Rodgers next to Zack de la Rocha. Trailblazing.

  • Singer-Songwriters 1969-1971 (Group 7)
  • 90s Metal Rock (Group 15)
  • The Deep Roots of Country Western (Group 1)
  • New Wave Arrives, Late 70’s (Group 10)

About g-mo

The day I was born, Michael Jackson's Thriller album was at the top of the Billboard 200. I've been trying my best to live up to that expectation ever since.
