    Dance music at a club isn't bad in small doses. I don't need to hear fifty songs back to back with the same beat. It is annoying. It was annoying when I was young, it isn't me getting old. Thump, thump, thump, thump. When it is that loud it just beats you up.

    Re: Cringe-Worthy Music

    I heard one today. I know it isn't a terrible song, but for some reason I can't stand "Slow Ride" by Foghat. If I have control of the stereo, I turn it off immediately. If I don't, I cringe and endure it like a punishment. Slow ride, take it easy. Slow ride, take it easy. Slow ride, take it easy. Slow ride, take it easy. Slow ride, take it easy.

    I hear ya.

    IMO, "Slow Ride", "Satisfaction", and "Hotel California" fall into the overplayed, overrated category.

    I was sick to death of them years ago, and never cared for "Satisfaction" <ducks> at all.

    I feel like being trapped in Hotel California couldn't possibly be any worse than listening to "Hotel California." I can't turn that song off fast enough when I hear it.

    Re: Cringe-Worthy Music

    I still like Hotel California, but I get where you guys are coming from.

    Freebird is a half-of-a-listen from me, I turn it off before the long solos and whole second song part.

    R4B, take back what you said about Satisfaction. Unless, of course, you are talking about Devo or Britney Spears covers.

    A good classic rock station would play everything on both Eagles greatest hits and then some (James Dean for example) and about 15 Lynyrd Skynyrd songs (although some people say they did three songs: uptempo song, ballad, and Freebird).
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    For the most part, it's due to the fact that conglomerates are now able to purchase multiple radio stations in a given market thanks to de-regulation, which offers no incentive to be innovative at all. It's very rare that program directors have as much free reign as they used to back in the heyday of "Mainstream Rock" radio.

    The irony of this is that stations that specialize in "Classic Rock" today have much smaller playlists of "Classic Rock" than they did back in the day when Rock Radio meant "mainstream AOR"--New Rock and Classic Rock in the same format.

    Sorry, I just can't.

    Signature song or not --That is the one Rolling Stones track that never did anything for me.

    I just want to point out I don't understand the term "AOR". There is plenty of "album oriented" rock out there (even more so than AOR labeled bands), but you would never hear twice of the term today.

    True, but I was speaking in terms of the "AOR" Radio format, also known as "Mainstream Rock", which is sadly virtually extinct today. Rock radio today is generally split into sub-formats--AAA, Alternative, Active Rock and Classic Rock--and rarely, if ever, do you get it all on one station today.

    Also, Rock Radio stations used to play more than two or three tracks from current albums/CDs. That rarely occurs today.

    Yep, Revering4Blue is right, although the trend started even before the mega-conglomerates got going. This was one of the things I learned back in school, before I realized I wasn't destined to be the next Dr. Johnny Fever or Andy Travis, and got a real job instead... the philosophies of programming a radio station and selling records are completely different. Record sales are about positive action -- "buy this song/album." Radio is about the negative action -- "don't touch that dial." Ratings are driven by people who leave the station on all day, and ratings = money. So the programmers focus on filtering out songs that drive people to change the station -- and in a classic rock format, by now they know how the public will react to anything they play.

    But as others have noted, there's a "short term gain, long term pain" effect. By restricting the playlists to that degree, they just hasten the "stale" factor and the format's eventual demise. Same thing happened a decade or two back with the oldies stations (playlist: the period between "Rock Around The Clock" and "Sgt. Pepper") -- after awhile, the playlist had been trimmed to only the most familiar tunes, a fourth of which were by the Beatles, and now everyone who wants to hear good stuff from the '50s and '60s listens to XM/Sirius or Pandora. (Insert "aging demographic" joke here)
