What Was 2017’s Song of the Year? UCR Fan Choice Awards
We've already chosen our Top 20 Songs of 2017 and now it's time for you to decide. We've taken those same songs and we're asking you to decide: What was your favorite track released by a classic rocker in the last year?
A handful of these tunes touch on, or are directly about, the issues of the day. But for those of you who don't believe politics belong in music, we have plenty of other options. And we've also included the works of some artists who have since passed on, giving you a glimpse into their final thoughts.
You can listen to all of them below before making your decision. Voting for each of the 2017 Ultimate Classic Rock Fan Choice Awards categories ends on Jan. 2, 2018, at 11:59PM ET. As always, the winner will be decided solely by reader’s votes.
