    I was born in 1985, so I missed out on the 70's. But that doesn't mean I can't love the music, yes? Those aren't in any particular order. I wrote 'em off the top of my head. Honourable mentions: Anything and EVERYTHING by Pink Floyd, most everything by the Alan Parsons Project, Everything by The Clash, "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath, "Slow Ride" by Foghat, "We're An American Band" by Grand Funk Railroad, "So into You" by the Atlanta Rythym Section, "Never Been to Spain" by Three Dog Night, "Rainbow Demon" by Uriah Heep...... And so many more I cannot think of.
