Songs classic rock should be playing, No. 1

If you’re classic rock radio station isn’t playing Kurt Cobain and Co., it isn’t classic. It’s just old.

1. Nirvana, Smells Like Teen Spirit. Why should I even have to write this? This should be on heavy rotation at every classic rock station in America, sandwiched between Stairway to Heaven, Iron Man, Crazy Train, Shook Me All Night Long, etc. Was it an enormous hit? Check. A great song that has stood the test of time? Check. Importance? Well, it knocked Michael Jackson off the top of the pop chart and was the final nail in hair metal’s coffin. Check. Classic rock radio: Play the damn song. It’s that simple.
