“Route 66” didn’t crack the list, so feel free to not take it seriously. Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” topped the 25 picks, with Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” and AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” rounding out the top three.

Not only no “Route 66” to “get your kicks” on; no “On the Road Again” (Willie Nelson) and nothing—nothing!—by the Beach Boys.

I’d cancel my Rolling Stones subscription, but I, um, let it lapse in 1976.

Not a bad list considering their well documented anti-Zeppelin bias. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Led Zeppelin gem atop the list. Now if they go back and revise those hideously slanted ‘Top Albums Of All Time’ and ‘Top Artist Of All Time’ lists, they might snag a few new subscriptions from the millions of Zeppelin fans they’ve alienated over the decades. I cancelled my subscription in 1969 after they crapped on LZ-II. I’m still happy with my decision, especially considering that album is now universally considered a masterpiece, having sold well over 12 million copies in the U.S. alone.
