Rockin' the Right

The 50 greatest conservative rock songs.

So here are NR’s top 50 conservative rock songs of all time. Go ahead and quibble with the rankings, complain about what we put on, and send us outraged letters and e-mails about what we left off. In the end, though, we hope you’ll admit that it’s a pretty cool playlist for your iPod.

The Who, Stones, U2, Sex Pistols, Metallica, Kinks, Rush, Eagles, Pretenders, Clash, Bowie, Zeppelin, Aerosmith, CCR, Sammy Hagar, Everly Brothers, Everclear, and more...including Iron Maiden. I'm kind of surprised they even knew of Iron Maiden.

Anyway, here's the list.

Ouch. Some of these are really bad.

Coming Online Soon: The Five-Minute ‘Charlie’s Angels’

The question probably never occurred to viewers in the 1970s and 1980s, but suddenly it is highly relevant: exactly how much worthwhile entertainment content was there in shows like “Charlie’s Angels,” “T. J. Hooker,” and “Starsky and Hutch”?

The Sony Corporation and its production studio, Sony Pictures Television, which controls the rights to those and many other relics of a distant era of television, have come up with an answer to that question: three and a half to five minutes.

You read that correctly -- 3.5 to 5 minutes.

That’s the length Sony has shrunk episodes down to in order to create what the company hopes is an appealing new business in retooling old shows for a new era of entertainment. Sony even has a name for these shrunken slices of television nostalgia: minisodes.

Doesn't that speak volumes to the quality of television shows?

Read about these new minisodes here.
