Alice in Chains is now considered "Classic Rock" Ugh.

Classic rock is the 70's as far as I'm concerned. There were some 80's bands like Black Crowes that rehashed the sound but the Motley Crue's and Nirvana's are not classic rock to me. That said I don't begrudge "classic rock radio" for wanting to bring something new to its sound.

The station used to play 50s-70s in the early 90s and have advanced their playlist every ten years. I almost never listen to that station but my wife does and gets pissed when I hop in her car and automatically change the channel 🙄

I enjoyed the music they were playing in the grocery store the other day.

Well, I feel old because I think it's been 7 years since my last post. Used to post a bit, but somehow lost my password I thought, byt today, there it was ********lol.
Anyways, gave up mtb awhile back, 7 years ago, cracked some ribs chasing Bvibert, and at 52 then, realized I wasn't going to heal so fast. Anyways, was out riding road on my mtb saturday, and ended up over at Scoville Rd., decided to check the trails out and the 200 yards in I went felt good. Turned around as I still had to ride home, no helmet etc, pretty much street tires on my bike. My son used to ride with me, now he's done 5 years in the Marines, is working for a contractor now, haven't heard from him in 4 years. At least the trails are there, think I'll be getting back out there, no more clipless, and hopping off for every feature.

Make amends with your son. Life is too short!

Some of us might be lucky enough to hear dub step on the oldies station before we die.
