    I've been listening to a lot of 38 Special lately because the only decent radio station that I can get on my car radio up here in the mountains is KKLD. A classic hits station broadcast out of Cottonwood, AZ. And they play a lot of 38 Special's hits. Music that I'd pretty much forgotten how much I loved back in the day.

    Their music definitely added to the soundtrack of my youth back in the '80s. In fact, I remember getting one of their most popular albums for my very first serious girlfriend as a Christmas gift. Odd how hearing a song can bring memories like that back so clearly. Good times.

    Have any of the rest of you experienced this sort of thing with your favorite bands of yesteryear? If so, let's hear about it.

    Saw them live back in 87' or 88' at the Budweiser Superfest in Atlanta. I didn't listen to the show...

    I experienced it.

    After watching a Nirvana reaction video a couple months ago I went back through their catalogue. Their music is great, I just got burnt out on it.

    I listened to In Flames and Children of Bodom a few weeks ago for the first time in years.

    Brought back alot of good memories from when I was a teenager.









    First learning how to shred on the guitar and hanging out with like minded people, who became good friends at the time.

    Definitely the better years of my life.

    Styx. Maybe never a favorite, but I like some of it.

    I had tickets for In Flames,Megadeth, Trivium and Lamb of God before Covid fucked us over. I've seen them a few times. They went a bit pop metal but up until Come Clarity I loved them. I was really looking forward to seeing them again for the first time in like 12 years.

    To answer the thread topic, INXS and U2. I know I'm a consummate metaller but I've really enjoyed them in the car recently, and husband has bought me a load of CDs, vinyl and DVDs of them recently. I really couldn't do without music.

    Talking Heads.

    Thought the hits were ok when I was a kid, and just went back and listened to their first four albums. Man, what a difference some years make . Waaaay better and much different than the stuff I remembered.

    Blue Oyster Cult's performance of 'Don't Fear the Reaper' on their 'Some Enchanted Evening' live album mesmerized me as a kid, it was on the mixed tapes that my older brother would play during workouts or when we were playing Dungeons and Dragons. But he actually just had the final minutes of the song, which was all instrumental and which was different from a lot of their other live performances of the song and of course, different from the studio version.

    I finally rediscovered it with the help of the internet and it has become, of course, a staple of my workouts. I love it just as much as I did as a kid, in part because of the memories that come with it and in part because it is just really, really awesome. One of those things where the song itself was every bit as good as I remembered it being.

    I always listen to the Allman Brothers, but agreed with the rest. Great choices!

    I just rediscovered Southern Rock myself when I got Spotify a few months ago. Been listening to a lot of Outlaws, 38 Special, Molly Hatchett, etc. I was shocked to see that The Outlaws have still continued putting out new Albums up until Henry Paul died a couple of years ago. Here's part of my playlist from Spotify if you're looking for some suggestions. All good stuff. :cool:
