The Rock Anthology

A huge Spotify playlist, updated almost daily, featuring all types of guitar music – rock, indie, heavy metal, goth, emo, glam rock, hard rock, hair metal, prog rock, pop rock, new wave and shoegaze – everything from Alabama 3 to Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

YEAH I SAID PROG ROCK.

I bought Marillion’s “Misplaced Childhood” on vinyl and was immediately lost in the swirling keyboards and lovelorn poetic lyrics – to say nothing of the very comprehensive guitar solos, each of which would frequently cause me to miss a week’s worth of school.

Since then my taste in guitar music has broadened. I lived through Goth and Emo, through Britpop, through Madchester (just) and now – well, I guess Ed Sheeran has a guitar too. Good for him. I don’t listen to as much Marillion as I like, but it’s difficult to give over a whole month to listen to a single keyboard progression. Plus Fish left and they’re shit now he’s gone.

This is a giant collection of all my favourite guitar music and is updated practically daily, certainly every week. Whack out your air guitar (not a euphemism) and rock on, Tommy!

The kids still say that, right?

In what way would you like to disagree with me?
