Geez, this is thread made for Rock/Hard Rock only Via 1945-1990 exactly, so please go take your dammed dreary Metal and daft Punk junk elsewhere. They are not mainstream Classic Rock- they are cult genres (Metal Heavy Metal, Punk, Daft Punk, ect. are cult genre).
Also I love Buddy Holly/Holiday, he died in a plane crash, its a tragic thing he was taken from his life so early, but he created the the song: "peggy sue" ^^
I don't mean to be offensive, but you should probably read up on genres a bit..."classic rock" is not a real genre. It's just a radio term. All it means is "rock music from the 1950s to the 1980s." If you listen to a classic rock station, sure, they usually won't play Metallica or something, but they will play The Clash, which is a punk band.
Metal and punk both fall under rock from 1945 to 1990. And you know, I wasn't really trying to include them in this thread. I was just mentioning that I enjoy them on the side.
You don't need to overreact and go bashing other people's tastes. That's sort of rude.
Oh, and I quite enjoy Buddy Holly as well. Peggy Sue is indeed a great song. My other 50s favorites are The Everly Brothers, Bo Diddly, and Bill Haley.
