    That's silly. Everyone know the eighth-best classic rock song of all time is Bachman-Turner Overdrive's "Takin' Care of Business."

    If you disagree, I challenge you to an arm wrestling match.

    Well deserved. The top 100 songs should all be Van Halen songs.

    Unchained
    Panama
    Sinner's Swing
    Dirty Movies
    I'm The One
    Light Up The Sky
    Bottom's Up
    Everybody Wants Some
    Romeo Delight
    Feel Your Love Tonight

    And on it goes for the next 100 song spots or so....

    The lines praising Michael Anthony are already the cause of much bitching over at VHND. Lots of Sammy/Mike hate over there, it seems.
    Hit the ground running...

    We came through blood and fire...

    The Sass Jordan version of Van Halen was the best...

    That a nice collection of songs. How odd though for VH to be represented by EWS. Cool, but kind of odd.

    Aerosmith in the top slot. Hardly surprising. That band seems so entirely overrated to me and yet they get the biggest handjob of any band in the entire world.

    Unchained rules over ever song listed there, including the Van Halen song previously mentioned.

    Personally 'EWS' wouldn't make my VH Top Ten but it's still a really good song and sounds great in concert.

    'Sweet Emotion' certainly would NOT be at the top of my 'Best Classic Rock' list.

    I'm just glad it's not fucking Stairway to Heaven. I could live the rest of my life happily without ever hearing that goddamn song again.
