What's Your Name is Lynyrd Skynyrd's last single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Back in 1977, it peaked at #13 on the Hot 100 charts. It was their first single from their Street Survivors album. Obviously, this live performance video was shot many years later since Johnny Van Zant is singing. Enjoy!
Hard to Handle is The Black Crowes' highest charting and biggest hit of their career so far. Back in 1990, they released their album Shake Your Money Maker, and Hard To Handle was the third single from the album and their first number one hit. It topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts, and it peaked at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Enjoy!
Creep is by far Radiohead's biggest hit of their career so far. It was their debut single back in 1992. It didn't do very well on the charts then, but it was re-released in 1993, and it became a worldwide success. It peaked at #34 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and #2 on the Billboard Modern Rock charts. The band grew to hate the song because it was the main reason fans came to their early concerts. They stopped playing the song live in 1998 and didn't start playing it live again until 2001. Enjoy!
Van Halen's You Really Got Me is probably the best song that Van Halen ever recorded, in my opinion. They had a lot of great hits, but You Really Got Me was their first single from their 1978 self-titled debut album, and it sounded so different from all the other late 70's rock songs. It's definitely one of the top ten rock songs of all-time. Enjoy!
Sledgehammer was Peter Gabriel's biggest hit in the United States. It topped both the Billboard Hot 100 and Mainstream Rock charts in 1986. It was the first single released from his So album. This video won nine MTV Video Music Awards, a record which still stands as of today. Enjoy!
Sweet Emotion was Aerosmith's debut single from their 1975 Toys in the Attic album. It peaked at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. In 1991, they re-released the song as a single, and ironically, it peaked at #36 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. The music video for the song shows a teenage boy talking on a sex line with what he believes to be a beautiful woman. At the end of the video, it's revealed that the woman is actually very overweight, poor and has a baby in her arms while she's talking to him. Enjoy!
Bryan Adams' Summer of '69 is one of my favorite rock songs of all-time. I listened to Bryan Adams' Reckless cassette tape relentlessly in the summer of 1985, and I must have re-wound this song a thousand times. It was a top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, peaking at #5. Enjoy!
Blinded By The Light is a very popular classic rock song. You can still hear it at any given time on classic rock radio stations around the country. Back in 1977, it went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. This was the Manfred Mann's Earth Band's only big hit. Enjoy!
The Joker was the Steve Miller Band's first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. It was also their first single to chart in the U.S. It was a track on their eighth studio album of the same name that was released in 1973. Enjoy!
Bad Medicine is one of Bon Jovi's biggest hits. It went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1988, and it peaked at #3 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. It was the first single released from their New Jersey CD. Enjoy!
