KROQ's Top 500 songs


Recommended Posts

Yeah these lists are created to piss people off, and to kiss ass. But man. KROQ used to be the Roq of the 80s and many great songs are underrepresented here.

Strad, I know you will have thoughts on this, as we have similar music tastes.

Soto, I literally just saw this on here and don't really have time to digest it, also as much as I love the music of the 80's my memory for the names of songs and their artists isn't the greatest, even though so many of those songs I know word for word. Just glancing at it, I would probably put the top three KROQ songs of all time like this, and when I choose these they aren't my favorite they just happen to be the songs I think about when I think of KROQ

3. Anything Anything-Dramarama

2. Blister in the Sun- Violent Femmes

1. I Wanna be Sedated- Ramones

My top list of KROQ songs would be full of Oingo Boingo, Smiths/Morrisey, Depeche Mode, Love and Rockets, Echo and the Bunnymen, and U2. I'm sure I am missing a ton and I am equally sure that Brandon or Nate will tell me I am wrong and have terrible taste in music.

Yeah I'm with you. Not my favorites but definitely along the top played KROQ anthems.

I guess there are so many songs I feel aren't on here from the early 80s. I remember when shake the disease was the number 1 song in 84 or 85. That song was so massive.

There were a lot of one hit wonders too that aren't on here. Oh well.

I thought the same thing. They have an erection for Sublime. I'm sure this has to do more with promoting the bands that do all of their festival shows, and targeting the right demo audience of listeners, but there's so much

missing here.

 

KROQ and Southern California in general has a hard on for Sublime.  I never understood it.  I feel the same about RHCP.  Both bands have songs I would listen to but never on purpose.

Noooooope.

I've never called someone's taste in music emo or tried to belittle what someone likes. To each their own. I don't care enough about KROW or what they've become to have an opinion. The list they created looks safe and appeasing to most.

A lot of KROQ listeners today weren't even born in 1984, of course you aren't going to see much from the 80's on the list.  When they do this 30 years from now I'm sure I'll be saying there is not enough Green Day or RHCP on the list.
