So, Colette considers Light My Fire as a “watershed” hard rock song of the boomer generation. She asks a great question. What are some of the hard rock songs that you consider to be influential in guiding rock down different paths from your generation? Here are a few of my submissions….

Sweet Home Alabama, Lynryd Skynryd
Takin’ Care of Business, Bachman Turner Overdrive
Sweet Emotion, Aerosmith
Tush, ZZ Top
Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin
Back in Black, AC/DC
I Love Rock & Roll, Joan Jett

Hell is For Children, Pat Benetar Deleted due to beratement and replaced with an ode to the conflict between men and women.
