This week's XBMC Playlist Download is “Classic Rock.” On the radio, this genre of music is usually known for rock and pop music from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and into the current century, but not the last few years. This XBMC playlist will pick up any song with a genre of “Classic Rock.” This means you also get rock & pop from the 50's. That's fine with us. We wouldn't want to exclude Bill Haley & His Comets, Buddy Holly and other great rock & pop artists from the 50's. So, do your hair up in your best A Flock of Seagulls style, put on your striped bell bottoms and paisley shirt, bling out in your love beads, see clearly now with your horn-rimmed glasses and rock your night away. (Sorry for leaving you with that mental image)

After downloading the .ZIP file, you need to do two things:

  1. Unzip the playlist into your XBMC music playlist folder — You can find specific information on playlist folders in this article: Playlist Folders in XBMC
  2. Start XBMC (if it isn't already running) and navigate to the Playlist section of your music library, select this new playlist and enjoy

Today's playlist is 291 bytes in size and contains all of your Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Journey, Eric Clapton and similar music in random order.

That's all there is to it. Follow the instructions listed above and quick as you can say, “Can you dig it,” you'll have a new music playlist.

Note: If you just copy the .ZIP file into your playlist folder, XBMC will handle it just fine. It sees the zip file and adds it to your list of playlists. Clicking on the .ZIP file will open it up and present you with the contents. In the case of today's file: “Classic Rock.” Click on that and it works like any other playlist.

Today's playlist is “Classic Rock.”
