classic rock:
freebird- skynard (although simple man is very close)
stairway to heaven- zeppelin
hey joe- hendrix
southern man- neil young
wild horses- stones
wish you were here- floyd

harder stuff:
cemetary gates- pantera
angry again- megadeth
holy wars- megadeth
fade to black- metallica
battery- metallica
forty six & 2- tool
killing in the name of- rage against the machine
toxicity- system of a down
civil war- guns n roses
down in a hole- alice in chains
bodies- drowning pool

I left out the 80's stuff... but you all know that the scorpians, foreigner, styx, REO, ronnie dio, def leppard, poison all ROCK OUT!

and yes, Quinton, monowar rocks too!

I'll stop. I could go on all day

so he doesn't know English. I have never met anyone from Europe who cannot speak near-perfect English. They all learn it in school from the time they are quite young. They may have an accent but they certainly know the grammar and many words, certainly enough to hold a normal converstion. Nimrod's 'English' is so bad that it makes no grammatical sense. It's not just a mistake once in awhile, it's as if the words are randomly chosen. Even if he did a word-for-word translation from Dutch to English you would still understand more or less what he meant. Dutch is close to German, but it is also close to English. Dutch fishermen and English fishermen speak close to the same langauage. Many words are cognates in English. It just isn't that hard to make yourself understood. Nimrod doesn't. His words are neither Dutch nor English, so there's something else going on. (Schuyler is a Dutch name, BTW.)

would have more than one Manowar song, although Heart of Steel is probably about their best one. Blood of the Kings is a good one, too.

Some of you people

are confusing country with rock. Sorry, but Brooks and Dunn aren't rockers. And neither is Hank. Hank is great, but not in the Rock genre

Hank Is a rocker

He just sings music you do not have to play backwards to understand it. I will give you Brooks and Dunn, but Hank can hang with any rocker.

Outlaw country is on the verge of rock. Hank 3 now that just heavy, don't know if you've heard him. He's great sounds just like his Granddad when he does his country thing! Notice I said country not CUNTRY....everthing coming out of Nashville sucks now days!

hank

is not Rock in my book...although I like him, if you looked at the list Grease, you could not justify Hank Williams in a list of metallica, dio, ted nugent, motley crue, etc etc...haha, but nice try! By the way, finished Ted White and Blue...awesome, for any of you guys who haven't read it, pickup Ted White and Blue, great reading. A few more I like:

Tumblin' Dice - Rolling Stones
All Along The Watch Tower - Jimmy Hendrix
LA Woman - The Doors
Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
Iron Man - Black Sabbath

Ted White and Blue

is better, IMHO (for samD) than his first book. And HANK ISN'T ROCK!!! If Hank is rock because he played with Kid Rock, then Aerosmith are rappers and Run DMC were rockers because they played together.

sorry, I was doing other stuff, looks like I'm half an hour late posting your opinion for you. Um, yeah, cheese is good, but goat cheese is awfully strong tasting to be using in an omelet.
