Best Use of Classic Rock
Winner (by a good margin)
"Born To Be Wild" - "Survival of the Fittest"
"Carry On Wayward Son" - "Survival of the Fittest"
Perhaps this contest would have been closer if I had considered "All out of Love" to be classic rock, but that would have been the equivalent of cramming a square peg into a round hole. It just didn't fit. The classic rock again was slim this year, and considering we have not only waited 7 seasons for "Born To Be Wild" to be used but that it was paired with the triumphant and long awaited return of the Impala in all her full glory, how could that song lose? It was a slam dunk.
The runner up though, I know that "Carry On Wayward Son" is a much beloved song, but it's been the traditional season closer for 7 years in a row. It's kind of shocking others couldn't compare. It also proves that viewers have not suffered any kind of fatigue with the signature song.
