Conservative rockers

Sorry, Catherine, but you know how we male muscular-liberal bloggers like our lists…

The rightwing National Review’s John J. Miller has compiled “the 50 greatest conservative rock songs.” I’ve knowingly heard only about 15 of them, so I’m probably not the best person to comment.

Still, I think Miller stretches the definition of “conservative” rather, um, liberally. (What exactly makes John Mellencamp’s “Small Town” or The Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” conservative?) And he seems a little too eager to latch onto a word here or a phrase there.

But see what you think.

Update: Miller followed up with another 50 songs, even fewer of which I’ve heard.
