Topic: Classic songs that "Go To 11"

Are there songs … no matter how many times you’ve heard them on the radio … u reach for the volume knob to turn it up 1 Louder when it comes on?

(this is assuming you still have a radio station in your area that plays music you enjoy smile … satellite / streaming stations can count for this exercise. smile )


3 that come to mind for me …

Wow, another John Denver fan smile.  Based on the first song, I'm guessing you've been to lots of Oriole games? I don't know about cranking up the volume to 11 so to speak, but I've loved John Denver since I was a young teen.  Played many a JD song on the guitar back in the day.

Back in Black, Hells Bells - ACDC
Walkin' the Dog, Back in the Saddle, Train Kept A Rollin' - Aerosmith
25 or 6 To 4 - Chicago
Pour Some Sugar On Me, Foolin', Rock of Ages - Def Leppard
Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
Free Ride - Edgar Winter Group
We're an American Band - Grand Funk Railroad (excellent call RoadcaseBoy!)
Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child of Mine - Guns 'N Roses
Barracuda, Crazy on You - Heart
The Ocean, Heartbreaker, Black Dog, The Rover - Led Zeppelin
Swamp Music, That Smell - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Hair of the Dog - Nazareth (good call by Gary)
Time - Pink Floyd (quintessential high volume 11 "stereo speaker test" song back in the day)
Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo - Rick Derringer
Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf
Renegade - Styx
Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
Hot For Teacher, Mean Street, Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen
