10 Classic American Rock Songs to Pump your Fist to this 4th of July

10 Classic American Rock Songs to Pump your Fist to this 4th of July

Top 10 Classic American Rock Songs The 4th of July is Independence Day in the USA. It’s a time for Americans to celebrate everything that makes America great. America has introduced a lot of great things to the world, but one thing they’re particularly good at it pumping out top-notch, hard-rockin’ bands with classic songs that you can’t help but turn up the volume on and sing at the top of your voice. It’s a tough task to pick just 10 classic American rock songs, but here is our attempt. We recommend enjoying this list with some cold beers and a hamburger and fries. 1. Eagles - Hotel California “The hotel itself could be taken as a metaphor not only for the myth-making of Southern California, but for the myth-making that is the American Dream, because it is a fine line between the American Dream, and the American nightmare.” - Don Henley 2. Aerosmith - Dream On “Dream On” was written four years before Aerosmith came to be, when Steven Tyler was only 18. He said in an interview “I never dreamed it would end up as a real song or anything…It’s about dreaming until your dreams come true.” Solid proof the American Dream does exist. 3. Journey - Don’t Stop Believin’ The unmistakable intro to “Don’t Stop Believin’” will have you up off your seat playing air guitar before you know it! There is nothing more motivating than a tune telling you to never give up on your dreams this Fourth of July. 4. Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode Going back a little further in history for this one, Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”...

Your Guide to our Tour Guides: Dave

Your Guide to our Tour Guides: Dave

  This is the first installment in a series of interviews we’ll be conducting with each tour guide. We pride ourselves on our excellent staff, and we’d love you to get to know a bit more about them. We recently sat down with our tour guide, tech and all round nice guy Dave to discuss favourite bands, whiskey and the music industry. Here’s what he had to say.     Name some of your favourite Irish musicians. My favourite musician would definitely be Phil Lynott. He’d be kind of a lot of people’s favourite I’d presume. Apart from Phil, it would be Rory Gallagher, another great musician, Gary Moore, who played with Thin Lizzy for a number of years. Bands like Stiff Little Fingers and The Undertones would be my sort of style. Why did you become a tour guide at the museum? Well I’ve been tour-guiding for about four or five years now in different aspects of tourism, like Georgian history. I was working in the Whiskey Museum, I was working at a Viking attraction, but personally my main interest is music, so to be able to combine both together was kind of perfect. What do you like most about working in the museum? Working in the museum, every day is different. You’re meeting different people, sharing your stories, but also people are sharing their stories with you. Their time, their experiences, seeing bands like Thin Lizzy or U2 in their younger days. What is your favourite piece of memorabilia from the museum? Personally, Phil’s bass guitar. I’m a huge Phil Lynott fan and Thin Lizzy fan. It’s definitely my favourite...
