1. Led Zeppelin - Kashmir (1974):hail:



2. Pink Floyd - Brain Damage (1973)



3. Deep Purple - Smoke on the water (1972) Fun fact. Did you know this song was made because of Frank Zappa and the mothers were performing a show in europe and somebody brought a flare gun and burned the place to the ground :d.



4. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird (1973)



5. The Police - Message in a bottle (1979)

I don't listen to a lot of the 'staples' of classic rock so this list might be a little weird/off the wall.


1. UFO - Rock Bottom(1974)

Schenker was 18 when this was recorded, and when he joined the band in '73 he didn't speak a lick of English.



2. Foghat - Fool For The City(1975)

Slow Ride(which I can't stand) overshadowed this song IMO.



3. Scorpions - The Sails Of Charon(1978)

I'm finding that a lot of these albums are labeled hard rock/heavy metal. I'm not so sure that some of these belong in a list like this, but I've always looked at the genre "classic rock" as being more about 'classic' than 'rock'. Roth is fantastic either way. The verses are probably my favorite rhythm guitar/drum line combination ever.



4. Van Halen - Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love(1978)

This one is tied with 'On Fire' but that's a little more metal than this one I think.



5. AC/DC - Riff Raff(1978)

I can't stand the intro, I cut the first 50~ish seconds of the song on the MP3 in my MP3 player.
