Friday Music Blog-10 Greatest Rock Anthems of All Time

Welcome to the Friday Music Blog on Chief 187™Chatter.

One of my favorite things to watch on television is on VH1 Classic and is a countdown program that is titled The Greatest 100 _____.

No matter what I’m doing or how late the show is on, I am compelled to watch. I usually rope my husband into watching, too, although he’s not a hard sell. We watch as the numbers click down and debate each one.

“How could they rank Salt N Pepa lower than Queen?”

We are reminded of superb artists and their music, discuss the validity of the inclusion, and simply have a blast.

I look forward to having those discussions here.

Each week I’ll ask a question in which you rank your answers. The more who respond the better sampling we have.

Tell your friends, co-workers, spouses, and acquaintances about this so we get maximum involvement. If you haven’t watched these programs on VH1 Classic you are missing out.

Fortunately we can experience something akin to that here at Chief 187™Chatter!

This week’s prompt is ranking your opinion of the Top Ten (10) Greatest Rock Anthems.

Try to include 10 songs but at least list some if time or your memory doesn’t permit the full 10.

Every answer is vital and appreciated.

Remember to check back here throughout the day and weekend for new lists. In addition, don’t forget that weekends are an ideal time to visit archived articles on Chief 187™Chatter.
