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.

Anyway, "classic" (older) 11 (kick @ss rock) selections...

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
Baba O'Riley - The Who
La Grange - ZZ Top

Now that’s a list !! Can’t argue with that!!

Your rock candy baby

Had to laugh to myself when I saw your post today ... heard another one I turned up today while driving ... cranked the volume for the very same reason you mentioned!! big_smile  (was going to wait on posting it since I had just posted up the other day.)


Remember hearing it as a kid I guess soon after it came out ... (not on the radio ... the 45 was in an old juke box my father bought and put in our basement ... I don't think he knew it was in there ... he was born pre rock and roll ... think he just liked the machine and not necessarily the 45's in it ... some catchy 70's pop-rock 45's were in there ... I remember my sister and I playing the jukebox alone in the basement ... and when the needle dropped in this song ... we began snickering ... and looking at each other amazed ... how can they say this on a record?!! big_smile (but I remembering digging the opening riff right out of the gate.)

Mom heard from upstairs ... and the rest ... they say ... is ... a memory. smile


Nazareth - Hair of the Dog (ScreamDream3000)

Edit: .. see gary has it in his list from back in Sept '18 smile


PS: . reo ... big_smile!! ... (I had wiki'd the Jenny song after I posted up ... wanted to see the year of it ... some interesting info on the song and the phone # being used ... some stories where out there in the past ... but much more than I thought.

Re: Classic songs that "Go To 11"

I saw the MSG 3-vocalist circus last year. It was... interesting. Michael played perfectly but I wasn't loving the tone that night. Almost sounded shrieky or something. But it was worth it to hear the UFO stuff and early MSG tunes. I decided to pass on this year's gig.

I love that Phenomenon album! Queen of the Deep also another track that goes to 11!
