Classic rock

Classic rock was originally conceived as a radio station programming format which evolved from the album oriented rock (AOR) format in the early-1980s. In the United States, this rock music format now features a large playlist of songs ranging from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s, with some stations including a limited number of current releases.

    Such a senseless, meaningless tag.. It's completely based on context that does nothing to describe the music at all.

    That's another way of putting it. Genres suck!

    Umm. No, it's a radio format that describes, at best, rock music that was popular an arbitrary amount of time ago. It's not a genre at all and it never was. It's pretty much fucking meaningless.

    Rock in a time before everything HAD to have a specific genre.
