rock n’ roll
Did you see the sun?! I did – confirmed siting. Portlanders – you better take advantage of it while it lasts; download this playlist and enjoy some time outside. And if the clouds roll back in, just let George Harrison’s lyrics take you away that Spring-time state-of-mind.
I don’t know if it’s residual Valentine’s Day feels or what, but this week Fighting Rose has a soft spot for great partnerships, and thus, here’s a (very non-definitive) tribute to some excellent songwriting duos: Jagger/Richards (“Glimmer Twins”) King/Goffin Hall & Oats Jones/Strummer King/Goffin John/Taupin Henley/Frey Page/Plant Tyler/Perry (“Toxic Twins”) Leiber/Stoller Becker/Fagan Lennon/McCartney
It’s the end of Week 8 here at PSU, and that means that everyone is already gearing up for finals. Luckily, there’s at least one thing in college life that’s a no brainer: the fact that listening to a great bunch of classic rock songs will improve everything from your mood to test scores. That […]
Alright Alright Alright Fighting Rose listeners – February 16th marked the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the most perfect Classic Rock radio show that ever was. (This one, if you didn’t get that.) And in celebration, this week’s playlist is a compilation of my the best songs from the best playlists over the last year. Cheers! […]
So – midterms were this week. That means that as I type this, many of you are engaged in various stages of trying to forget the trauma emparted by such a ritual. But never fear, Fighting Rose is here for you; personally, I think one of the best ways to unwind is with a really […]
This, you’ve probably noticed from “Part II” in the title, is a supplimental playlist to the first Rock N’ Run, though none of these tracks are by any means secondary to those previous. And like Part I, all of these tunes are epecially picked so as to drive that (sometimes unnatural or unexpected) urge you […]

Episode 29 features tracks from Los Saicos, Ramones, and Los York’s. MarsMelted is student powered rock n’ roll radio served fresh from the studio at KPSU every Thursday at 7pm PT.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and one thing that Fighting Rose is thankful for? Why, Classic Rock of course! And also all the great artists and genres that came before classic rock and contributed to its complete and total rad-ness. Radness? Yeah – that’s definitely a word. Oh, and food. Did I mention Thanksgiving […]
Halloween. You know it. You love it. Or your wrong. (obligatory “just kidding” goes here) But all joking aside – Halloween is the best. And Rock is the best. So when Rock turns spooky, what’s not to love? This is just Part One of Fighting Rose’s spin on Halloween – SO… more to come next […]
Over half the world’s population lives in an urban setting; hmm… maybe that’s why we have all these rock songs about the city!
