Rock out to the music of the '80s and '90s when 93.1 Jack FM brings together a stellar lineup for its annual concert blowout. In addition to the iconic Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, you'll also see Collective Soul, Billy Squier, Violent Femmes, Bow Wow Wow and Naked Eyes. Joan Jett has eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics "Bad Reputation," "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You" and "Crimson and Clover." Collective Soul is defined by their catchy melodies and guitar-driven songs that dominated the Billboard charts throughout the '90s. Billy Squier became one of the first faces of MTV in the early '80s, starting with his video for "The Stroke." The party anthem rocketed to No. 3 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart, launching Squier's career into the stratosphere. The Violent Femmes got their big break when Chrissie Hynde asked them to open for a Pretenders show at the last minute. Their raw sound and honest lyrical perspective has since influenced such artists as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, Nirvana, Lou Reed and John Cusack. Bow Wow Wow's smash track "I Want Candy" defined the early '80s, and the group appealed to pop and New Wave fans alike. British New Wave band Naked Eyes exploded into the Top 10 with their cover of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David tune "Always Something There to Remind Me" and have never stopped since. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Thomas achieved mainstream success again in 1968, with the single “Hooked on a Feeling,” which featured the sound of an electric sitar, first released on the album On My Way (Scepter Records).
The 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, featured Thomas performing the (Burt Bacharach – Hal David) song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” which became the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1970. The song was also released on an album of the same name. Other hits of the seventies were “Just Can’t Help Believing” (Billboard #9 in 1970, covered by Elvis Presley), “Rock and Roll Lullaby,” “No Love,” “Everybody’s Out of Town” and “Mighty Clouds of Joy.”
In 1975, Thomas released the album Reunion (ABC Records), which contained what would become his second number one hit single, “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song.” On ABC, he also charted with “Songs” and “Don’t Worry Baby” (the Beach Boys classic).
