Late 60s/early 70s band fronted by Jim Morrison. Progressed from an amalgam of light and dark psychedelia to bluesy rock by the time of Jim Morrison's death. Known for Jim's voice and lyrics as well as their reliance on Ray Manzarek's organ; Jim's qualities stand out in longer tracks like "The End" and "When the Music's Over" as well as shorter tracks like "The Crystal Ship" and "Not to Touch the Earth."

I was going to quote a line from Armageddon, but I can't remember it.

A collection of hits from various genres and bands from the 60s, 70s and 80s, generally played on classic rock stations. It is a distinctly American phenomenon (that is, other countries do not have classic rock stations per say) and generally features North American and British/Irish bands.
Pink Floyd's album, "Dark Side of the Moon," is part of the classic rock canon. Their earlier albums, such as "Meddle," are not.

I finally bit the bullet and bought Tarkus.
Boy do I hate Tarkus.
Mid-to-late 60s psychedelic band fronted by Syd Barrett
who was replaced by David Gilmour, metamorphosizing into a progressive rock
band (in a loose sense of the term). Generally known for three albums - Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. The rest of their catalogue is easy to find but largely absent from classic rock stations.
"Pink Floyd rocks!"
"Pink Floyd sucks!"
Led Zeppelin's untitled album, Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon," and The Who's "Who's Next." These albums are regarded as the "holy trinity of classic rock" for their overwhelming popularity, the quality of their music, and their contributions to the airwaves. The fact that songs from these albums may be overplayed on classic rock stations only cements their importance to the "genre."
"We Won't Get Fooled Again" is a song from "Who's Next," a component of the holy trinity of classic rock.
