Kick Out The Jams studio version

I just wanna ask, if anyone knows if there's the studio version of MC5's Kick Out The Jams either on YouTube or on Spotify??? I can't believe that I can't find the original version of such legendary song... Also one more question, is the version on the single a live one of the song or not??? Thank you guys!

Edit: On Spotify there's a 1 minute version of the song that looks like it's from studio, but it's not the full track. Any information on this is welcome.

An idea

I think that classic rock stations should play classic rock songs that charted in the top 40, not just the ones that were the most requested. This way they could have far more songs than usual.

Bands/songs with similar sounds

I’m new to this sub, so I hope this is okay to post! I’ve recently been getting more into classic rock and I’ve found that favorite lane within that has been more on the country/folky/southern side. I’d love some recommendations for songs or bands that have a similar vibe. Some specific songs that I’ve absolutely LOVED for (hopefully) a helpful reference :

-bad moon rising, proud Mary, good golly Miss Molly by credence clear water revival -boogie with Stu and D’yer Mak’er by Led Zeppelin

  • three step by Lynyrd Skynyrd

-roadhouse blues by the doors (Morrison hotel as a whole actually is just fantastic) -ramblin’ man by the allman brothers

Also if anyone just has any personal favorite bands/songs they’d like to recommend or just ones you consider ‘essential’ when exploring classic rock I’m open to those too! I’m always looking for new music to try!

Bob Seger song identification

I am in Texas Roadhouse and heard a Bob Seger song on the radio I loved that I couldn’t make out the words to and I hadn’t heard before.

The end of the verse or the prechorus had a vi-IV chord progression from what it sounded like, then the chorus was just a I-IV-V-V.

It had a harmonica and was upbeat, had a tempo around the speed of Night Moves but was a little faster feeling, maybe due to the drum. He got all excited sounding and yelled a bit during the chorus.

Sorry for the lame description, but that’s about all I got but it was AWESOME. Hope someone can help me out

Sad to hear … Love, going away

I I am not sure if this is the right sub for this topic but I find it understandable as the Mirage Hotel and Casino is no longer part of the conglomerate it is and is now going to become the Hard Rock, but the vintage days of the Mirage and Love, the Beatles Circus Soleil will ever be ingrained in my memory banks as one of the best shows I have seen in Las Vegas.

I think it was early 1993, when my then girlfriend, now wife spent our first weekend in Las Vegas, we stayed at the Mirage. It was an amazing trip, a great weekend and a blast. In the 20 or so trips, we have been back to Las Vegas and have seen the many changes. I think Love leaving Mirage will be a difficult one from the standpoint of entertainment.

I might just be an old bastard, remembering the good old days of the penny and nickels, the midnight buffets and the silliness of the old time Vegas, but I will say I’m truly going to miss going to Mirage and seeing, feeling, and enjoying Love, by Cirque du Soleil

Band Mash-ups

If you take Bruce Springsteen and mash-up with Journey, you would end up with Bon Jovi

(Springsteen + Journey = Bon Jovi)

others?
