Throwback Thursday: Joan Jett & The Blackhearts 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll'

Genres 20:32PM EDT

I love rock 'n' roll, you love rock 'n' roll, he/she/it loves rock 'n' roll. Put another dime in the jukebox, add a killer, back-to-basics riff underneath a proper growl, and you got a hit for the '80s. No song offers the simple sentiment about digging good tuned better than this classic Joan Jett & The Blackhearts hit, and today (March 20) marks 32 years since the song took a loving hold on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven straight weeks. So, for today's #ThrowbackThursday, we're going to take another look back at this tune.READ MORE

Throwback Thursday: 'Believe' by Cher, the song that brought you Auto-Tune [LISTEN]

Genres 20:47PM EDT

Auto-Tune. Whether or not you love it or think it's nothing but a big ol' crutch for an otherwise untalented singer, music fans cannot deny that it's inevitable on today's pop charts. Jason Derulo, T-Pain, Future... none of these musicians would have any business in the music industry if it weren't for one single... Cher's "Believe."READ MORE

Throwback Thursday: Ace Of Base find chart-topping success with 'The Sign'

Daily Dish 19:51PM EDT

Some songs just wiggle their way into the world of pop culture, never to look back or apologize for what they are. Ace Of Base's most popular song, "The Sign" just so happens to be one of those tunes.

For this week's edition of #ThrowbackThursday, we'll celebrate 16 years regardless... of Neutral Milk Hotel's pinnacle album In The Aeroplane Over The Sea.

Throwback Thursday: Rick Astley Rolls Into The World With 'Never Gonna Give You Up'

Daily Dish 22:39PM EDT

Today, February 6, may be best known in the day in history when reggae legend Bob Marley was born, and that's totally fine and good. Perfectly valid, at that. Marley's impact on musical culture is undeniable and should be celebrated. However, he shares a birthday with one other popular musician... one who has also deeply affected culture, albeit in a different way. Yes, February 6 is also the birthday of Rick Astley. And for this week's #ThrowBackThursday, it's time to get Rick Rolled.READ MORE

Throwback Thursday: 'Violet' by Hole

Daily Dish 00:22AM EDT

The biggest day in the footballs is right around the corner... the Super Bowl. The 2014 edition of the American tradition will see the Denver Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks. The music of Denver... not so well established. There's OneRepublic (kind of), India.Arie (ish... she was born there) and a few other acts, but the city has no distinct sound. Seattle, on the other hand, has been the birthplace of hard rock for over two decades, most notably grunge, which as we all know, rose in 1991 like a black hole sun all thanks to Nirvana. But, we know enough about Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. Instead, for this week's Throwback Thursday, let's look a little to the left of those guys at Hole.READ MORE

Throwback Thursday: "Pain in My Heart" by Otis Redding

Daily Dish 12:22PM EDT

Our Throwback Thursday hasn't been all that throwback lately. This track stands out as the namesake of Otis Redding's debut album, Pain In My Heart, recorded from 1962 to 1963. Redding strikes an unparalleled balance of smooth rasp. The song showcases the effortless feel that his voice is dropped from heaven, as its dug deep straight from the soul. READ MORE

Throwback Thursday: “Alphabet Town” by Elliott Smith

Daily Dish 12:06PM EDT

Elliott Smith's saturated voice drips with longing, ringing out every last drop until you're left as dried up and empty as the characters in "Alphabet Town." It's a song set against a backdrop that takes on a haunting mood of its own. The harmonica is used delicately; when it fades out all that's left is the lingering echo of Smith and his acoustic.READ MORE

Throwback Thursday: “Spiderwebs” by No Doubt

Daily Dish 11:10AM EDT

When No Doubt released "Spiderwebs," their second single off of 1995's Tragic Kingdom, one thing was clear: they weren't going to quietly retreat as a one-hit wonder after the first single, "Just a Girl." Following up with "Don't Speak" sealed the deal -- they had more staying power than a catchy ska punk song. This past spring Rolling Stone confirmed that Rock Mafia producers and Greg Kurstin were teaming up with the band to write new material for a 2014 album release.READ MORE
