You consider Zeppelin corporate rock? Linkin Park is corporate rock. Nickelback is corporate "rock". Zeppelin is pretty far and above more innovative than anything that most people would consider corporate rock. But I guess if it's played on the radio, it must be corporate rock, eh?

Agreed. Jimmy Page was/is a genius. Not sure how anyone could classify Zep as corporate rock.

Well Sherman lets get in the way back machine...
I think that if anyone can ID what cartoon that was from, realises that Led Zepplin is not corporate rock. Granted I am not a big fan of Zep, but they did contribute quite a bit to rock. I happen to like Robert Plant going solo though...

Wow! Six posts in and I'm already makin' enemies. Typical for the 559. If Zep is your cup of tea then party on. Music is like art or women you know beauty when you see it and everyone sees it differently. However, big record contracts, big stadium concerts, big limos, big drug habits, big play on commercial radio...sounds like corporate rock to me.

Haha. Damn, William's a hard grader. I have to confess I've never been much of a indie guy, so I wouldn't know.

This Saturday I pressed 200 for a set of 4 while listening to Abba's "Chiquitita." Is that sacrilegious?

I saw a great punk show in the early '80's in the sticks just outside fresno. Big Jed & the Flatbeds and Primer Grey.

I love Sonic Youth but Death Valley '69 works better for me for lifting than Teenage Riot.

Teenage Riot isn't bad for a faster paced workout. i agree i wouldn't really want to lift to it.

a current fav for me while lifting is Sleep's "Dopesmoker"...at over an hour long (of heavy sludge awesomeness) it easily covers my whole workout.
