Top songs: Papa Roach claim No.1 spot in our latest Tracks Of The Week poll
9. Kid Rock – In Detroit This song is part of Pepsi’s NFL Anthems series, in which music stars write songs inspired by NFL teams. Here’s the scam from the soft-drink makers themselves: “The Detroit rocker (ie. Kid Rock) and the Detroit Lions make a natural pair, and instantaneously the chemistry was there. Kid Rock + Detroit Lions = an anthem that just screams Made In Detroit.” You can get a free download of In Detroit here.
10. Howlin Rain – When The Morning Comes / Collage We love a bit of Howlin Rain here at the Classic Rock website – and, just to make it clear, we’re talking about the San Fran band, not the precipitation-packed Great British Summertime. The band have just released a limited-edition 7-inch single (500 in clear vinyl and and 500 in blue vinyl). It contains covers of The Grateful Dead’s When The Morning Comes as well as the demo version of The James Gang’s Collage – the final studio version of which features on the Howlin ones’ third album The Russian Wilds, released earlier this year via Agitated Records.
