Rules


-To vote, just state the name of the song. Not too hard!
-If they are a solo artist that was in a group, only name songs from when they were a solo artist (For Example Beatles songs for Paul McCartney)
-Collaborations are A-Ok to pick! So Under Pressue works for Queen + David Bowie, and Numb/Encore works for Jay-Z and Linkin Park!
-You can nominate up to five artists/bands a day. Can be from any genre, as long as they make something that can be considered music. Once you nominate something, you can't nominate it again on another day. Those with the most nominations get picked for the next day. (Tiebreakers get picked by me)

It kills me not to vote for Johnny B. Goode here, but alas, I really honestly have to say,

Run Rudolph Run

HM, really no joking I'd take these over the best of most of the artists done so far: Johnny B. Goode, Route 66, Roll Over Beethoven

I gave this guy more of a listen to shortly after he passed and realized that I've heard of a bunch of songs he's recorded! Not just Johnny B. Goode, but Roll Over Beethoven, My Ding-a-ling, Route 66, Run Rudolph Run, Rock and Roll Music, he's got them all.

But I think my favorite is Maybellene

I'm gonna go ahead and say that for anyone born since the late 70s, Back to the Future was most likely their first exposure to Chuck Berry.

("But it came out in 1985!" yes, that would put the earliest of that age group at 5-8 years old when it came out)
