We're counting down the top 500 Classic Rock songs of all time From 500, to number 1.

The absolute best of the best tunes to make your memorial day as great as possible!  What are you plans, by the way?Grilling out?  Pool time?

Here are my plans.  I'm going to social distance drink with some family and do some BBQing.  Some brats & burgers will be charred while the kids test the pool.  I haven't gotten in the pool yet this year...but you can be sure when I do it will sound like David Lee Roth during the intro of Running with the Devil.  I need to clean a little bit with the brush on the sides & do some vacuuming.  After that, the pool will be great.

In the meantime, we'll be bumping some 97X with the best line up of music you've heard in a while.  Everyone loves a countdown...so starting at 3pm on Friday we'll be kicking it off with James Gang "Funk #49" at number 500.

That's as much as I can give you.  The top ten of the Memorial Day 500 is going to be amazing.  So, tune in on Monday to find out who's going to be the winner. Which...by the way...is definitely anyone who is rocking the X all weekend long.
