Classic Rock Mailman

Classic Rock MailmanIt'll get bigger if you click it.

If there's one noise that can send me straight for the "off" button, it's the sound of the band Boston with their stupid fuzzy guitars that always sound the same, no matter what ancient and lame song they're playing.

You could avoid playing most classic rock acts ever again and make 90% of the country happy. (Some bands, Zeppelin comes to mind, stand the test of time and get rediscovered by later generations.) Unfortunately, there are enough classic rock fans out there to keep at least one classic rock station on the air in most major markets. (They are REQUIRED in small markets.) And the playlist will always have way too much Boston on it. (And REO Shitwagon!)

The mailman here at work is always cranking it up to 11 as he drives up to our mailroom. He inspired this silly image, using the head of classic rock guitarist Luther Dickinson, who does not fall into the unlistenable category by any means.

I think this could be an SNL skit.

  • It’s the Postal Service equivalent of Mr. Softee. Instead of a bell ringing, the loudspeakers play Heart.

  • Hey, where would all the Chevelles and Camaros go if it weren't for burnouts with the bald-spot mullet listening to Boston and their five hits? They keep their dinosaur wagons alive with a pair of 6x9s in the back dash on their way to the night gig cleaning chicken plants just a few miles SE of the SGF airport, right? Dino rock, dino cars, dino mentality. ya know, even I liked Hotel California the first 850,000 times I heard it.
