Classic Rock Tuesday: Bad Company by Bad Company

Welcome to Classic Rock Tuesday at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll. Tuesday's will be dedicated to the overplayed and long forgotten classic rock jams. The selection for July 24, 2012 is 'Bad Company' by Bad Company.

Writing a song that shares the same title as your band is no easy feat, and you better bring your A-game or you are looking at an epic fail. Minor Threat, Green Day, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, and Belle and Sebastian are among a handful acts that have earned their gold star for recording a song named after their band. Also clearing that rock and roll hurdle is Bad Company. Featuring members of Free, King Crimson, and Mott the Hoople, Bad Company's eponymous debut album peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts when released in 1974 on Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label. 'Bad Company', 'Can't Get Enough', and 'Movin' On' are the standout tracks from that first Bad Company album.

I'll admit that I really like some of Bad Company's music, but I wouldn't be sad if they decided to stop playing 'Feel Like Makin' Love' on the radio for the rest of time. I'll put my haters club card back in my pocket so you can enjoy 'Bad Company' by Bad Company.
