Song Of The Day: Thin Lizzy – “The Boys Are Back In Town” (1976)



This week in 1976, this song reached its highest position on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #12. It’s hard to believe that a song that is surely one of the greatest Classic Rock tracks ever didn’t reach any higher on the charts. Sure it was more of an album-oriented band as they used to say back in the day, but “The Boys Are Back In Town” has got everything a great hit single should have, a memorable chorus and that incredible chord progression with hooks as sharp as dental tools. I guess sometimes Billboard simply gets it wrong, this track will always go down as one of the all-time Rock greats.
