Friday Music Blog

Welcome back into the Friday Music Blog! This week topic is taking a hard edge. The focus is songs that are considered to be from the era of Arena Rock. From the late 1960s through the 1970s and ending in the 1980s, name any and all songs that you think of as “Arena Rock”. As this is totally subjective, there is no right or wrong answer, but not answering is unacceptable!

From Led Zepplin to Boston, Black Sabbath to Bruce Springsteen, and Queen to Van Halen, list the songs that you consider “Arena Rock”. Educate your fellow readers/music lovers and me on what you consider to be classic Arena Rock.

Wishing you all a great weekend. I invite you all back here on Monday for another week of original blogs here at Chief 187 Chatter. From Monday Movie Blogs to Friday Music Blogs, Simple Joys to Tantalizing Thursdays, and a free day in the middle of the week for me to wax poetic on whatever is on my mind, I hope you find something each day that you identify, enjoy, or agree. It is my distinct pleasure to write these very personal blogs, and an honor for me to have you read them. Thank you!


  1. Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi
    Come Sail Away - Styx
    Who Wants to Live Forever - Queen

  2. It wasn't hard to pick the top track in this category, it's only been rattling round my head for 42 years or so, but took me over an hour to find the best arena/version, with maximum attack, pace, and adoring crowd :-

    Hope that's arena enough :-)

    On a funny note I saw 8 mile a couple of weeks ago and this version of the one of the many Lynyrd Skynyrd Arena Classics had me in stitches way to go M&M :-
