10 Mistakes Purposefully Left In Classic Rock Songs

Not sweating the small things.

The Bozho

Whenever entering a studio, an artist has a chance to create something unprecedented. With nothing but time, tools, and creative ingenuity at their disposal, plenty of acts have tried to move the earth and stars to achieve perfection on the final take. Though some might fall just shy of perfection, there are plenty of songs that become classics that are actually a bit of a mess.

While you might recognize these songs whenever they are played on the radio, there are a few weird extracurriculars going on just beneath the surface. From internal band drama to just technical foul-ups, there are certain parts of these songs that weren't necessarily supposed to be in the final cut. Many could see these little screwups as a case of rock bands being unprofessional, but they actually end up giving these songs a lot more character.

Other times it gets so pronounced that you can't even think of the song the same way without going to the little imperfections that are right in front of your face (or ears). Despite not having the most spotless track record in the studio, these screwups have remained as classic as the songs they are associated with. No human is perfect, but even in the mistakes we can find little bits of brilliance.

I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
