REO Speedwagon hits include "Keep On Loving You" and "Can't Fight This Feeling".

1 I think "Roll With The Changes" is their only good song. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I agree Brenda, Hi Infidelity in my book is one of the best overall albums ever. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 7, 2012, 9:46 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I don't understand why people say REO turned sappy on "High Infidelity". There were only two ballads on the whole album ,the rest were straight-out rock. All their albums contained only a ballad or two but the ballads were what the record label released. Listen to "Don't Let Him Go" or "Follow My Heart " on Hi-Infidelity. Kick -ass guitar from Gary Richrath!!! -- Submitted By: (BrendaPhelan) on December 29, 2011, 6:57 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Another 70s classic rock band that the 80s transformed for the worse. Listen to their early stuff and it actually rocks out and seems to have some soul. Compare that to the over the top cheese of "Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore" and it's not hard to see why AOR rock started a steep decline around 1985. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 27, 2011, 12:24 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote

6 'Ridin' the Storm Out' was IMO the ONLY cool song this band ever did. Outside of that, I never understood this bands popularity. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 5, 2010, 12:05 pm - (-4 votes) - Login to Vote
7 that song pure torture.they make my ears bleed when he hit the high notes. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on January 28, 2010, 4:11 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I wish the Speedwagon would race 'Can't Fight This Feeling' off my radio and throw away the oar while they're at it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2010, 5:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 REO Speedwagon still rocks!! But I'd like to know what possessed them to allow the punk band The Donnas to make that GOD-AWFUL cover of "Keep on Loving You." IMO, that's not a BTF moment, but it does represent some fish-headed thinking. Or maybe money-motivated? Anyway, if you haven't heard that cover, consider yourself fortunate: The lead singer sounds like she's simultaneously half asleep, about to puke, and stuck in the bathroom going through some SERIOUS intestinal distress. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 13, 2009, 6:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 If I have to hear "Can't Fight This Feeling" one more time on my oldies stations. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 12, 2009, 11:53 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
