Nobody in the world thinks that Boston is good.  I bet the radio stations are getting paid to play them as much as possible.

Also, I should have recognized the riff of "Jumpin Jack Flash."  I would have if it had been played on guitar, but that's no excuse.  I'm going to go hang my head in shame now.

Boston's More Than a Feeling is the best song ever written.

To be fair, I was playing it three half steps off key. That must have thrown your delicately tuned ear for dad rock.

The thread is calling for dad rock

Presumably good dadrock (that is one word, not two >o<), though.  That's really my only issue here.  I only mentioned how overplayed it is simply because it's utterly unworthy of its exposure.  Boston is and always has been a commercial act.  It wasn't about making good music for them, it was about making money.  Pretty much negative stereotype that people have about arena rock can be attributed at least in large part to those corporate stooges and their slick, overpolished, factory-produced tripe.

As long as you do not rip on Queen, I can respect your opinion of Boston and in a fit of political correctness not post Boston videos.

I'm just not seeing the right kind of Dad Rock here. I've listened to most of these now and where's the Led Zeppelin, Nivana, Thunder, even bon jovi. This stuff is shit dad rock. You can do better. >:(
