Classic Rock Radio Stations



Classic rock music is timeless, and the iconic tunes of the genre, with heavy beats, screaming guitars and intelligent lyrics, have influenced many of today’s rockers and remain classic hits to this day. Because classic rock songs are often fun and easy to sing along to, the genre is a popular radio station programming format. Listeners are more often male, and the typical age range of classic rock listeners is 35-54 years old.

While traditionally “classic rock” encompasses music from the period between the mid-1960s rock explosion to late 1980s rock, early alternative rock and grunge is increasingly being added to the playlists of many classic rock stations across the country. Many styles of rock music are present in what is today considered classic rock, ranging from glam rock and folk-inspired songs to heavy metal and psychedelia.

Some classic rock artists from the 1960s and 1970s are the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Aerosmith, AC/DC and David Bowie. Rock ‘n’ roll bands from the 1980s that receive significant airplay on classic rock radio stations include U2, Guns N’ Roses and Metallica.

Much of today’s classic rock is similar to the sound of AOR radio stations from the 1970s and 1980s. The Classic Rock format has its origins in 1980s programming, which started combining AOR with hits from the 1960s and 1970s. Classic hits is a variation of classic rock, with softer, more mainstream music, making it appealing to females.
