The problem with Rolling Stone is that they can’t stop living in the ancient past. For example, they released a list of the 100 Greatest Guitar (Rock) Songs which suggests that no one has written a decent guitar song in at least 15 years. Somehow, the Allman Brothers Band’s “Statesboro Blues” comes in at number 9. Right, so very old people like these songs. I can deal with that. At least Nirvana comes in at number 10. And this is one of the most recent songs on the list. Sigh. Anyway, I thought I would collect some guitar songs that should have been noticed, if the writers/editors of Rolling Stone could see past their thick glasses.
The Raveonettes – Love in a Trashcan
Seether – Remedy
Dandy Warhols – Bohemian Like You
Buckcherry – Lit Up
My Chemical Romance – Famous Last Words
Really. It only took a few minutes to think of these songs. There’s lots more. The dinosaurs at RS just need to get out of their rocking chairs and visit the present.
