Idea for playlists of classic rock

I put together three playlists of 70’s rock, split up this way:

1970-1973

1974-1976

1977-1979

Mostly classic rock but with some radio pop hits of the day thrown in to give it that “flashback” sound.  This was a lot of fun to do and even more fun to listen to on my 8gb Sansa Fuze.  Those years cover my middle & high school years and 3 of the 4 years I was in the military.

Anyone else here like to get creative with your playlists?  Post some playlist categories/names, etc. you’ve got on your player (including songs & artists if you’d like).    

np: Barracuda - Heart

I dont have playlists on my player, but… I am a rock DJ. I specialize in prog, indie, alt, and metal. That being said…I work at a classic rock station. This weekend we are doing All Hair All Weekend… I would be glad to post the music list from tonights show if you want. 

I have several playlists that I give rather uniques names to. Here are a few:

  • Horn-E (Artists that play what else? Horns.)
  • Mello-Jello (Slow, easy-going music for relaxing or winding down)
  • Bloozey-Woozey (Blues. But the low-down epitome of this genre)
  • Motown-Showdown (You can probably figure this one out)
  • Vocal-Yokels (Usually singular vocal artists)

And in your ‘Classic Rock’-inspired subject . . .

Ear-Splitters:

AC/DC

The Animals

Black Oak Arkansas

The Doors

Chase (also in the Horn-E list)

The Edgar Winter Group

Eric Johnson

Evanescence

Foghat

Golden Earring

Grand Funk Railroad

Head East

Heart

Jethro Tull

Joe Satriani

Kansas

Little Feat

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band

Meat Loaf

Molly Hatchet

The Moody Blues

No Doubt

Pat Travers

Queen

REO Speedwagon

Rush

Santana

Scorpions

Spirit

Steppenwolf

Stevie Ray Vaughan (also featured prominently in the Bloozey-Woozey list)

Stone The Crows

Styx

Supertramp

Ted Nugent

U2

Wishbone Ash

I should really get around to making up another one in this category. As my music is split up between my player and memory card, only .pla playlists will play from both locations. And they are limited to 250 entries. I have many more artists whose music would warrant being in such a list.

Maybe one of these days . . . :wink:

Some candidates for Ear-splitters II:

Alice Cooper

Black Sabbath

Blondie

Bob Seger

Boston

The Byrds

Creed

Deep Purple

The Guess Who

Jefferson Airplane/Starship

Jimmy Page

Joe Walsh

The James Gang

Jimi Hendrix

Journey

Led Zeppelin

Lynyrd Skynyrd

King Crimson

The Outlaws

Pat Benetar

The Pretenders

R.E.M.

Savoy Brown

Steve Vai

Toto

Uriah Heep

The Who

ZZ Top

Dang . . . I might even have to make an ‘Ear-Splitters III’! :dizzy_face:

I would appreciate it if you could. I need to add to my “Redneck Music” playlist.

This weekend is just normal rotation. Everything from Skynard to Crue to Puddle of Mudd to Alice Cooper.
