Playlist...

As I mentioned last week, Nathan has developed an appreciation for The Scorpions. Yes, it has moved beyond just “Rock You Like a Hurricane” into other tracks.

Actually, it has become kind of a love of 80s hard rock. The kid has actually asked me to help improve his appreciation of the art form by putting together a playlist for him. He wants to study it for the band that he wants to start with two of his classmates.

And I’d like your help! Let’s start listing some 70s/80s/90s hard rock bands and some of their most rockin’ songs. Kiddo does not like ballads or anything country sounding. 

Here’s what I’ve got so far...

If you would like to participate in building this list, leave suggestions in the comments or contact me with your Spotify username and I’ll add you to the playlist. 

I do need to add some Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, and a few more. I really just threw together what’s above based mostly on Spotify recommendations. It made for a great start but hardly comprehensive.

You got some good ones on there. I’ll definitely add a bunch. Warrant is a personal fave! Seen them live twice.

Kevin Spencer

Gypsy Road, I bloody love that song.

kapgar

It’s amazing. It had to be included.

Marty Mankins

What you already have is a great list. I see one suggestion for Led Zeppelin above. "Song Remains The Same" is another Zep song that should be added.

For Sabbath, "Paranoid" is a good addition.

Love that you have "Breaking The Law" on there.

kapgar

Added “Paranoid.” Hadda be done. I’m gonna try him with that Zep song. Curious to see what he thinks.

Marty Mankins

Curious myself to see how he takes to that Zep song.
