Jaxon

Weekdays 3:00pm - 7:00pm

Throughout June, Jaxon has been your guide for MMR’s Essential 200. He features portions of this expansive list daily, and we’ll do a complete recap of the essentials over 4th of July weekend – but we need YOUR help to rank them all.

Vote for up to 10 songs on the list that you believe were key in shaping how rock n’ roll sounds today. There’s big hits, mixed in with the not-so-obvious picks. See them all in the galleries HERE.

200 is a lot of songs, so if you need help narrowing it down to only 10, we’ve compiled some of the MMR staff picks below. Make sure you cast your VOTE HERE before Thursday 7/1.
