This is a list of Essential Songs by "Hard Rock" bands.
Hard Rock is that music that is not quite pop-rock and not quite heavy metal. It is a heavy form of rock music that is typically (but not always) laden with keyboards.
So here is the list.
- Amanda (Boston)
- Any Way You Want It (Journey)
- Bad Company (Bad Company)
- Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)
- Cat Scratch Fever (Ted Nugent)
- Don't Stop Believing (Journey)
- Don't Tell Me You Love Me (Night Ranger)
- Dream Police (Cheap Trick)
- Hang Tough (Tesla)
- High On You (Survivor)
- I Can't Hold Back (Survivor)
- I Want You to Want Me (Cheap Trick)
- Keep On Loving You (REO Speedwagon)
- Love Song (Tesla)
- More Than a Feeling (Boston)
- Paradise By the Dashboard Light (Meat Loaf)
- Sister Christian (Night Ranger)
- Stone Cold (Rainbow)
- Stranglehold (Ted Nugent)
- Surrender (Cheap Trick)
- We Are the Champions (Queen)
- We Will Rock You (Queen)
What is really funny to me now is that looking at this list hardly any of these bands had keyboards in the music. Hmmm....ok apparently I have no idea what I am talking about. Okay hard rock is a very generic term but like I said I am running out of ideas. This could very well be the last one of these.
