Everybody wants to rule the world by Tears for Fears. If any song is completely played out, it's that one.

(for me), almost every Led Zeppelin song.
Pretty much because growing up and playing guitar, I'd play the songs over and over in order to learn and play the riffs along to each song.

For me it's Stairway to Heaven and Angie. I heard those two songs so many times I want to pull what's left of my hair out every time they play them on the radio. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard, especially Angie...

Anything Queer Channel (or whatever they're calling themselves now) programs for their "classic rock" stations. Because you just can't get enough Foghat and Bad Company in your life.

Local markets in FL must be way different than here in LA, as we don't get nearly enough Foghat!
Bad Company I've never liked, though I love Rogers' previous band, Free, who (except for "All Right Now") don't get any radio play.

Slow Ride and Fool For the City are the only Foghat played around here anymore. In the day would hear Stone Blue and Drivin; Wheel often. I Just Want To Make Love To You once in a blue moon as a deep cut.
First became aware of Foghat in spring of 1973 when What A Shame popped up on local AM Top 40 station. I called once and requested it, DJ told me he wasn't allowed to play it. So I went and bought the album. Still have every album up through Tight Shoes (1980). First time I saw them was opening for Clapton in '74. Must have seen them a dozen times within a 7-8 year period. They'd show up every 6 months or so. Sometimes the headliner, other times the opener, or part of line up at outdoor stadium show.
If you are really into Foghat, pick up Savoy Brown cd "Lookin' In". Three of the four Foghat members were in Savoy Brown and that cd has Lonesome Dave on vocals. Sounds identical to a early Foghat album. After that album they left Savoy Brown and formed Foghat. There's a song on the Savoy Brown album called "Leavin' Again". Foghat re-recorded it for first album and titled it "Leavin' Again (Again)"

Re: I know itís a great song, but I donít need to hear it again.

Classic Rock Radio has absolutely destroyed the Eagles, JImi Hendrix, and the Doors for me. Yes, they play the same 3-4 songs over and over again, but even if I listen to Deep Tracks on SXM and any of those three come on, I want to kick a pigeon.

Maybe this is why classic prog bands still sound fresh. ELP, King Crimson, Genesis, and to a lesser extent Yes (they got hit along with all the BadCos, Foghats, Bostons, etc.) never wear out their welcome with me. And Clear Channel never bothered with Van der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant, Camel, Roxy Music, or any Pink Floyd pre-Dark Side (or anything off Animals).

Caveat: Boston's s/t 1976 debut album never gets old with me. I have no idea why. OK maybe "Rock and Roll Band" is particularly nasty but that album just hits the right way. Same with "Bat Out Of Hell".

This goes against the grain of what you would consider a great song but it seems like a lot of people like it since they use it on every movie trailer but I can't stand this song.

I only recognize that from the chorus. Crap song, but I wouldn't know it otherwise. I think mostly from like promos for CW shows?

What makes me mad is when you have a band like Blue Oyster Cult, with a crapload of really good music, but the radio stations only play Don't Fear the Reaper and Burnin' For You...

That's true of a lot of bands.
Nazareth - Hair of the Dog and Love Hurts
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Deep Purple - Hush and Smoke on the Water

I'm tired of Burnin' For You but not Reaper. I am tired of Reaper showing up in every other movie you see. Cliche.
