There was discussion on Rock 92 this morning following the reading of a letter to the morning show chastising the Two Guys Named Chris show for saying that Mike Reno (Loverboy) looked and sounded bad on Hit Me Baby One More Time. The letter rant went on and on about the impact of 80’s rock bands, and how the present day music is crap. I personally think Loverboy’s music from the 80’s isn’t all that great now, even though I have their greatest hits and still like the old songs. When I think of great classic rock, I think of bands from the 60’s & 70’s. Now, that may be because I was “in my prime” in the 80’s, and am having a hard time coping with the fact that my husband & I attended his 20-year high school class reunion last weekend.

So I’m curious about what the world outside of the Rock 92 listening area thinks about classic rock. Does it include 80’s rock bands, and if so which ones? Since I’ve gone there, which 90’s – present day bands can/will be considered classic rock? (One caller mentioned Nirvana.)
