Theres more to the 70s than just disco music. Were bringing revolutionary songs this week that are hard rock, punk, and funk!

Named the 45th Best Hard Rock Song of All Time by VH1, Slow Ride is a single by British rock band Foghat. Drums open the song with pulsing hits on the offbeat, then the guitar kicks in with a distorted blues riff. The electric slide technique coupled with the tone of the lead vocals gives this song true grit. This song isnt a slow ride by any means, it alternates between verses, chorus and powerful instrumental breaks with a ton of action in-between. The guitar and bass fly through the song with fills and accents when they can, with an eventual duet and the drums switch between several patterns from a rock beat to a back beat pattern and more.

Another style of rock music that exploded in the 1970s was punk rock and Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, and Marky Ramone were at the epicenter. I Wanna Be Sedated is a single from Ramones fourth studio album Road to Ruin, one of their best known songs and a Rock Band favorite. Rolling Stone named it one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and NPR included it in the "NPR 100, a list to determine the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century. The song has been used in countless films and television shows, and has been covered by dozens of established artists as well as the countless up-and-coming garage rockers. The fast rhythm changes create the bop feeling to the song thats so much fun to play.

Shifting to an incredible song from Wild Cherry, Play That Funky Music was released in 1976 where it immediately went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Soul Singles chart as well as topping the charts globally. Its popularity is no surprise, being a textbook funk and party song - as soon as the main guitar riff drops, you know you get pumped. This song will prove just as much fun to play as it is to dance to. Between the syncopated guitar parts and main riff, the rhythm section stays locked in a tight groove while the vocal part does its thing over the verse. Everyone can jump in on vocals and belt out the chorus.
