Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and John Bonham would all roll over in their graves if Poison was a classic rock band.

I think they would role over if they knew we called them classic, I remember the first time someone called Metallica classic rock.....I no longer felt young :(
Report as
Yeah how can an 80s band of any genre be called classic? Classic rock is 50s/60s/70s.
Report as
like lynyrd skynyrd :P
Report as
For us :/
Report as
Yes Rebel...Lynyrd Skynyrd is classic rock.

Calu,..I do not think the genre changes just because we get older. What they call; rock now is different and will be classified as such. Grunge, Hair Bands, Metal, etc....

Disagree. I would call a lot of 80's stuff classic

and only about 1/3 of what you are listing is rock......
Report as
Most of it is pop
Report as
They arent classic rock. They are classics from the 80s
Report as
i'd agree with most of what you said, 123 green lol
Report as
But the Q was for classic rock......which is what my answer and comments are for.
Report as
But I think in that list, a fair amount was, in fact, classic rock.
Report as
But that is great that you have a large mix of music that you like. Everyone should have a large music library
Report as
We're trying to determine "what defines classic rock?" not naming every popular band from the 80's.
Report as
Ohh! I thought Dodgy was a teen from the 60's generation.
Report as
OzMan is 75.....years young :0)

Quote "How can any 80's band of any genre be considered classic rock?"

And I disagreed
Report as
Calu...technically WE are results of the 60s generation!
Report as
Well he still would've been a kid during the Elvis era.
Report as
123...I do not think a rock band from the 80s is classic rock.......They are definitely rock, but not classic rock which is what defined rock in the first place.

Not saying they do not kick a$$....but not classic rock. That is form the late 50s through the 70s, when the genre began.
Report as
Again, disagree
Report as
That's okay. You do not have to agree with me. :0)
Report as
I think that's the issue is that everyone considers the rock from the previous generation is "classic rock" even though we don't think so. But I'll admit if I ever here someone say 1 D was classic rock, I'll probably freak out :/
Report as
I think I would fall over dead........
Report as
The classic rock station in Reno plays Nirvana, Green Day, Guns n Roses, Metalica, etc. I hate radio.
