    Perhaps I've heard one of them, but wouldn't know it's name. Any bar I would go to wouldn't play that crap anyway.
    So per the study (not anecdotally), what the big hits from your heyday that have been lost on subsequent generations?

      Probably all the AIC, Nirvana, PJ, and Soundgarden stuff.

      ETA: All those were as big as any of the pop stuff they included in their study, but they didn't list any of them.

            The "top 5 in Billboard" criteria they used is admittedly a little arbitrary. For example, Smells Like Teen Spirit peaked at 6, but still gets a lot of radio play for a song that old, the only PJ song that hit the top 5 in Billboard was their "Last Kiss" cover, etc.

              There are a lot of songs that never hit top 5, but had much longer staying power than stuff that briefly popped up to the top.

              Black Sabbath for example.

                I Spotified both. Never heard them. And, more importantly, I'm glad that I've never heard them before and never have to hear them again.

                  Moonlight Serenade, Chattanooga Choo Choo

                    Shit, that solidifies it. I'm old.

                      T~95 Album Rock?

                        Nope, it was a station that played a pretty wide range of stuff from Neil Young (actually heard Cowgirl in the Sand once) to Metallica (heard a song from Kill em All once). it was like 101.1 or something along those lines.


                        I think T95 is still playing the same 5 songs from 20 years ago.

                          That has to be the last era where pop music was legitimately good and has stood the test of time.
