    For some reason I don't have any nostalgic feelings connected with classic rock even though I listened to it a lot in 7th-9th grade. I think because I always found it kinda cheesy, since I was also listening to Nirvana & modern alt-rock at the time which to me had more emotion in it. No music sounds more emotionally robotic to me than stuff like Genesis, Journey, Guns N Roses (actually they're just undyingly cheesy), Moody Blues, Eddie Money, Aerosmith (though they have some neat songs) etc.

    However, John Cougar Mellancamp is the tits.

    Kinda silly early 80's pop, I kind of put it in the same category of "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow or "I Know What Boys Like" by the Waitresses. I think of it as Valley Girl music.

    Classic rock is like Jackson Browne, Led Zepplin, The Who, Boston, Styx...I wasn't even thinking of Guns N Roses, which is Hair Metal, and Genesis is like 80's pop, I don't consider it "guitar rock" at all. Guitar rock generally refers to the late 60's and 70's.

    Also, I listened to Nirvana in high school so I consider it the music of my generation, but I don't think any Nirvana song has "more" emotion than "Dream On" by Aerosmith, though we could argue equal emotion.

    I think of it all as one continuum, that was only disrupted once grunge came around & made the hair bands GTFO. Also the classic rock station here played GNR & Aerosmith & all that mixed in w/ Led Zep & so on.

    By the way, what's the radio genre for the Beatles? I never hear them on classic rock or oldies stations.

    I will argue far, far greater emotion!

    Nah..

    But Nirvana tend to draw hardcore emotionally-invested fans in a way I've never seen any other band do. Particularly among unhappy teenagers.

    I think the Nirvana emotional investments stems more from the events surrounding the music(Kurt Cobain's depression and aversion to commercial fame/success) than the actual content of the music itself, but that's not to say that they don't have emotionally charged songs.

    They have a special effect on people because their songs combine anger with deeper emotions (more sensitive ones), while also using a melodic / harmonic language that's unlike any other band's (prob. half of their songs use notes outside the tonic key or else change keys, or resolve to unusual notes in the key... & a lot of their riffs are based on unusual chord progressions like Lithium for example which is E, G#, C#, A, C, D, B, D... etc.. I could talk all day)

    Wow, it actually had the bridge from Fantasy... yeah, totally total Valley Girl music for sure.
