Here lately my buddies have been throwing in some old school Metallica, AC-DC, and stuff like that. And the certain songs they are playing, I really like. Now I don't really know a whole lot about old rock, but I would like to start listening to some. Are there any certain songs you guys recommend? I would say from about 1999 or earlier. Thanks.

Check out some Iron Maiden. They have tons of good stuff. Fear of the Dark would be my fav.

Alice Cooper is cool.

Blind Guardian is a pretty good band, but they're kinda out there. Mirror Mirror is a sweet song.

Ratt is a sweet band, get Lay It Down

Sometimes I'm in a Slayer mood, feel free to get some of them. Raining Blood, South of Heaven, Black Magic. Whatever.

And yeah, can't forget about Journey ¬_¬

Also Ozzy Osbourne did good single work too like "Crazy Train."

Plus everyone loves Nirvana. "Heart Shaped Box", "Drain You", "Rape Me", "Dumb", jesus they are the best.

Frank Zappa > Everything

No doubt about it. If you like Frank Zappa, then check out Black Randy and the Metrosquad. Very similar to Zappa, except that they were part of the west coast punk scene, playing at the Masque and such.

I'd also like to recommend MC5, the Stooges, the Sonics, the Monks, Link Wray and his Wraymen, The Ventures, and the New York Dolls. Some rock and roll that covers the 50s, 60s, and 70s for you.

I'm not a big enough Zappa fan to totally agree with you but I will say he put out some great stuff (crazy stuff!). I really liked Joe's Garage. My uncle played that all the time when I was a kid (still does) and got me into it. Have you ever heard Steve Vai's first album (I actually had it on vinyl)? It was called Flex-able. He did it at Zappa's studio. Zappa was a huge influence on in and was helping him get started.

As for other music, jason_daronlane and squancho made some nice suggestions. I'd also like to add the following... (I could list hundreds, probably thousands, but I I reccomend these in particular)

AC/DC - If You Want Blood (You've Got It)

AC/DC - Girl's Got Rhythm

AC/DC - For Those About To Rock

Aerosmith - Seasons Of Whither

Aerosmith - Mama Kin

Bad Company - Shooting Star

Black Sabbath - Sweet Leaf

Black Sabbath - War Pigs

Black Crows - Hard To Handle

Black Crows - Jealous Again

Deep Purple - Highway Star

Deep Purple - My Woman From Tokyo

Deep Purple - Hush

Golden Earring - Radar Love

James Gang - Funk #49

Kansas - Carry On My Wayward Son

Kansas - Dust In The Wind

Kiss - Cold Gin

Kiss - Detroit Rock City

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesday's Gone

Meat Loaf - For Crying Out Loud

Meat Loaf - Paradise By The Dashboard Lights

Megadeth - In My Darkest Hour

Megadeth - Peace Sells

Motley Crue - Helter Skelter

Motley Crue - Kickstart My Heart

Ozzy Osbourne - Flying High Again

Ozzy Osbourne - Bark At The Moon

Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

Pantera - Walk

Queen - Fat Bottom Girls

Queen - Killer Queen

Rolling Stones - Paint It Black

Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil

Rolling Stones - Time Is On My Side

Tesla - Gettin Better

Tesla - The Way It Is

Van Halen - Ain't Talkin Bout Love

Van Halen - Jamie's Cryin'

Whitesnake - Here I Go Again

ZZ Top - Tush

Some other people already suggested Guns n Roses and Iron Maiden. Also, check out everything you can by Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Rush, The Doors, Pink Floyd, and anything by Metallica up to the Black album.

There is SO much wrong with that post that I don't even know where to begin...

If you're going to check out Black Sabbath, then look for N.I.B., Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabbra Cadabra, War Pigs, Heaven And Hell and Headless Cross.

And if you're going to look for Ozzy's solo stuff, you can do a lot better than Crazy Train. Check out Mr. Crowley, Perry Mason, Gets Me Through or No More Tears.

Personally, if you're in a metal mood then I suggest Dragonforce, Dream Theater, Rush, The Cult and White Zombie.

Great list but only about half of that is classic rock. You've got a bunch of glam rock/hair band type stuff in there (Twisted Sister and Def Leppard) and a couple of 80's pop tunes (Dexy's and Tom Cochrane). Good songs and all, just not really classic rock.

ANYTHING from Jimi Hendrix is golden...ANYTHING I tell ya!

Thats my only suggestion since I know nothing about rock but here is some other bands that aren't anything like ACDC but band's I would recommend anyway.

Oasis- Best british band ever if you ask me which I know a lot of people will disagree with but meh, difference of opinion.

The Verve- have a few good songs although they have more bad songs.

Ocean Colour Scene- Have only really started to like them recently so can't say much about them.

Also Pink Floyd- Classic band...classic songs.

But maybe he considers Twisted Sister and Def Leppard to be classics? Since when did "classic rock" become a genre in itself? They're both rock bands, and if the listener considers the songs to be classics, then surely that makes them classic rock? The term is entirely subjective and I hate it being used as if it were a genre.

And Boogey, Oasis the best British band ever? I know it's only your opinion but...Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, T-Rex, The Beatles, The Smiths, The Cure...I could go on and on for hours with bands that are both musically and lyrically superior and don't have to resort to ripping off Slade, the Beatles and T-Rex for every single riff.

I'd say that Classic Rock has become a "genre" over the last several years. It's definately become a radio format. If you browse the music at Amazon.com, you'll see a "Classic Rock" genre listed there. Interestingly enough, at Amazon they have Def Leppard listed with Classic Rock but not Twisted Sister.
