    I can see at least three cover versions of the original (and best) songs in that group.

    But, heh, I've been in a sort of bar for a coupla hours, so what the $hit do I know?:D :D :D

    Yeah ya really got to take VH1 countdowns with a grain of salt. I believe the ages of the people they were talking to on the show were alot of Gen Xers

    Maybe I'm old, but I only recognize about half of those songs. I always thought the best bar songs were Irish... like "Johnny Tar" by Gaelic Storm, "First We'll Drink the Whiskey" by Schooner Fare or some well worn favourites like "Little Brown Jug", and "Danny Boy". Of course, one country western favourite that I love is "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy."

    I love bar songs.
