Songs classic rock radio should be playing, No. 3

If you played less Foreigner and Bad Company, you’d have room for good stuff like these New Yorkers.

3. The Ramones, I Wanna Be Sedated. A greater argument could be made for The Clash because they’re more political, but Should I Stay Or Should I Go does get some burn on the classic rock airwaves. Then there are the Sex Pistols. The importance of Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols can’t be overstated. But I can’t stand Johnny Lydon. I’ve always loved The Ramones the most, so I went in that direction. Again, this comes down to history. Punk is an extension of rock, and there needs to be a place for that on radio among the Lynyrd Skynyrd’s and AC/DC’s of the world.
