Growing up, I could only listen to "Christian" music. So of course, I found the most insane, brutal heaviest crap I could to defy my parents. A back to school mix would include obscure bands like Mortification, The Crucified, Bride, Stryper, Sacrament, Betrayal, etc. Seriously. I go back and listen to these bands now and just cringe over the thought of 16 year old me loving this stuff. Now days, put on some Josh Rouse, Damion Suomi, Josh Ritter, Delta Spirit and that gets me in the working spirit.

Fats Domino was my favorite. We could dance all night long to "They Call Me the Fat Man" and "Blueberry Hill"

No doubt and Beatles, these two bands were everything to me when I was in high school. haha! No doubt is ska-punk, Beatles is traditional(?) rock music, they don't share that much similarity tho.

"When I think back On all the crap I learned in high school It's a wonder I can think at all" ("Kodachrome" by Paul Simon) ... But I can remember that we "Tie(d) a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" by Tony Orlando and Dawn. Then we got down with "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" by Jim Croce. We mellowed out by "Killing Me Softly With His Song" by Roberta Flack. We wooed the girls by enticing them to "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye. Our inner animal came out as we did "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John. We felt family pain with "Brother Louie" by Stories. We had time to love our neighbor, "Me and Mrs. Jones" by Billy Paul. The we just "Drift(ed) Away" by Dobie Gray.

my back to school song was Maggie May by Rod Stewart and Faces. It came out as my senior year of high school started. Another big one was "Spirit in the Sky." And thee was a lot of Chicago and also the Kinks played all the time. But living in the Bay Area, the one band everyone liked was Santana.

End of summer in Hyannis Ma - Sock Hop where they played a new song "Let's twist again like we did last summer" Won the 45" record and still have. It was a beginning of a new era - next up was the Beetles!

I lived in the bay area and snuck out to rock concerts nearly every weekend at the Fillmore and Winterland Ballroom. At home or friends, I listened to Judy Collins Wildflowers, Traffic, Cream Disraeli Gears, Jefferson Airplane -Surrealistic Pillow, Tim Buckley Hello Goodbye, Janis Joplin Cheap Thrills, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Beatles White Albu, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Santana, Grateful Dead - the list is endless, and I got to hear most of them in person (except the Beatles, who nobody actually HEARD in person. An amazing time musically.

I can see clearly now. It had that melancholy sound of the end of summer when I was nearing the end of elementary school. Of course then in 10th grade the songs had changed. By then it was maybe my Lady of the Island.

Child of the 1980s here! In high school, I was listening to Journey, Foreigner, The Cars, Wham, Genesis, The Police, The Outfield, Duran Duran, Bryan Adams, and whatever other Top 40 was playing on the one radio station we could get from Texarkana. :-)

I just graduated high school this year, but throughout the past 4 years I listened to lots of classic rock and progressive rock... Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Beatles... I wish I could have gone to high school in the late '60s or early '70s :)
