If you are new to the site, I started this series with the year 1987 and then noticed that 1991 and 1983 were also a couple of the greatest years in music. I got to thinking, was there a pattern that every 4 years we have another great year in music. Well, I am not sure the theory held up for me with 1979, but now I am exploring the year 1995. If you want to explore the other years, click on the link below…
1979 – The Greatest Year in Music?
1983 – The Greatest Year in Music?
1987 – The Greatest Year in Music?
1991 – The Greatest Year in Music?
Will 1995 be another great year or is my theory fully debunked with this year. Let us explore and see and then decide a the end. But first we have to ask What were the top albums of the year?, What were the debut albums from some of the great rock bands? and What was going on in the world of music that year?
1995 didn’t have any major news story that changed music like 1979 with the Sony Walkman and 1983 with the release of the CD, but a couple big stories did happen.
On August 9th, a major even happened in the history of Kiss. Kiss performed on MTV’s Unplugged series. That in and of itself was nothing special, but some special guests were invited up on the stage and out walked Ace & Peter. It was the first time in 16 years the original members of Kiss (Gene, Paul, Peter & Ace) had played together. It was so well received that the following year, Kiss put their make-up back on and the first reunion tour was kicked off and the Kiss Unplugged album was finally released. This event started it off.

Okay, I did Foo Fighters and Dave Grohl last week, so we might as well and do that other classic band he was in called Nirvana. Have you heard of them? This week I am getting a little edgier with some of these so if you offend easily, you might want to stop now. And if you are offended, forgive me. Enjoy!!
Does this make you feel old?? I don’t know if it is really him, but it made feel old.
Now for some on the songs…
Okay, here are the tasteless ones…sorry…I even groaned a little
And if you didn’t know (which means you obviously didn’t see last week’s post)….
For this week’s Tuesday’s Memes, we are going to cover the Foo Fights and their founder, Dave Grohl. With a new album, they have been in the news a lot and the album made a lot of people’s Top Album list for 2017 (not mine though, except for “Run” made my Top Rock Song list of 2017). It is time we honored the Foo Fighters with a Meme collection.
Here you go…I hope you enjoy!
Let’s get right into the ones that are about their songs…
And my personal favorite…
Hmmm…I never thought of this…
Why is that funny?? Maybe you didn’t know…
And some just for fun…
And that is all…wait…no cat one??? That can’t happen…
Okay…now that is all. Have a great week!!
Welcome to the Top 20 Rock Songs of 2017. These songs are my favorite songs of the year and were not necessarily played on the radio or even shot up the charts. They just moved me in some way good or bad!
If you missed the Top Rock Albums of 2017 or the Top Albums of 2017 (that were not Rock), just click on the link and go check them out.
It is time to start the list so here we go…
#20 – “Make It Move” by Jonny Lang off the album ‘Signs’: The loud stomping sound that opens the song and throughout feels like a train barreling down on you. The opening track to the album starts it all off with a bang. The song also delivers a great message that you need to make the move and not wait on something to happen.

Well hold on to your hats, there is an abundance of new releases today. Over 27 albums on the list so there has to be something for you. For me, there are at least 10 I want to listen to, but I am sure I won’t make it through all of them. The ones I want are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you would like to buy or hear.
- Josh Todd & the Conflict – Year of the Tiger – (Century Media): If there isn’t a Buckcherry new album, I will take Josh Todd album and this one has me super excited. This one seems to be a little harder than Buckcherry and I like that. The harder the better baby!!
- Foo Fighters – Concrete and Gold – (Roswell Records): The Foo Fighters bring us another release and although my interest tends to fade over time, I still enjoy them and will give this one a listen. What I have heard so far has been promising so maybe they have put together a decent album…we will wait and see.
