It's a toss up between Journey - Raised On Radio and Rush - Moving Pictures.

AC/DC indeed was one of the best classic rock band, others are also good like Led Zeplin's somewhat groovy and bluesy licks makes you shake and serious lyrics makes to think really deep.

What was serious about Led Zeppelin's lyrics?

I'm sure you've never heard Stairway to Heaven by Zeppelin or else you would never have asked that question, my friend.

That's one of their deeper songs, but the majority of their lyrical content was based around the normal blues and rock n roll content typical of the time, granted they incorporated some more mystical stuff as they evolved and certainly got a bit deeper, but I would never call them a serious sounding band.

Oh come on now! "Hey mamma like the way you move/ Gonna make you sweat/ Gonna make you groove!" These aren't serious lyrics to you?

How do you define classic rock anyway? I would never have considered AC/DC as such. Heavy metal/hard rock for me, but not classic. I suppose it depends on your timescale reference. For me, classic rock bands are the likes of Zep, Purple, Rainbow, T-Rex etc who all plied their trade in the 70s and who influenced a huge clutch of today's bands.

But what are the criteria, if any? Once a band has been in existence a certain number of years they become classic rock? Seems a little arbitrary to me...

Aside from a handful of songs, nothing.

Their most serious moment came when Robert plant proclaimed, "I wanna give you every inch of my love."
