    Voting Steely Dan over Bruce was the hardest decision of my life*.

    Surprised to see Bruce getting nothing so far. He’s like the 5 tool player who isn’t too good at any one thing.

    Everyone likes to go to the beach, so Buffett hits every demo. Thus, he’s the winner despite having probably the worst music of poll options.

    Good thread. My answer is Steely Dan. Grew up with Peg, Reelin in the years, and Dirty work playing on the Sony Stereo in the TV cabinet.

    Saw Paul Simon for his final tour last year, and he’s still got it.

    For me, dad rock needs to be music that I didn't really like all that much when I was younger but like more and more the older I get. Bob Seger is quintessential dad rock
