The two-disc This Is Rock Anthems begins with Rick Derringer's "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo," which was certainly a hit, but an anthem? Quiet Riot's version of Slade's "Cum on Feel the Noize" comes much closer and it's easy to get excited about; same with Pat Travers "Boom, Boom (Out Go the Lights)" and Black Oak Arkansas' "Jim Dandy to the Rescue." These are followed by Night Ranger's "Sister Christian," "Rag Doll" by Terrible Ted Nugent, Elton John covering "Spirit in the Sky," a remixed version of Sweet's classic "Ballroom Blitz," and Fee Waybill of the Tubes playing Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." Other inclusions are Kevin Martin, frontman of Candlebox, covering "Ramble On," Slash with Roger Daltrey covering Alice Cooper's "No More Mr. Nice Guy," Dee Snider of Twisted Sister covering Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train," and Steve Lukather from Toto covering "Shine on You Crazy Diamond." And that's not even the half of it.
