Classic rock?

So I'm listening to the "classic rock" station here in town the other day, and "Peaceful, Easy Feeling" by the Eagles was on. It was near the end of the song, so I left it on to hear what was coming on next (I don't have a problem with "Peaceful, Easy Feeling," but it's not like it's the greatest song in the world). So the next song that comes on is ...

"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" by the Charlie Daniels Band. Now, I like that song, but is it really "classic rock"? It sounds like pure country to me. I mean, it's about Johnny and the Devil playin' their fiddles, for crying out loud!

What say you, loyal readers? Should they be playing that song on a classic rock radio station?

"The Devil went" was during the southern rock times so I would say yes, it belongs on classic rock radio.

Oh yeah, will you please help one of my idols get into the rock and roll hall of fame? Please visit my site

I agree that it's southern rock, in the tradition of, say, sweet Home Alabama.

But I think it's a TERRIBLE song.

Melanie in the Rock Hall? I don't think so, even though I LOVE "Lay Down".
