The gang with share their thoughts on the subject as well as talk about some of the biggest live rock albums of all time and whether or not they were actually "live" after all! In this week's second act, the group will tackle one of the biggest questions they get asked all the time. Who are the greatest fictional rock bands in history? The guys will try and agree on four acts to place on top of the KCRO Mount Rushmore of Fictional Bands. Who will make the cut? All this and much, much more on today's Keep Calm and Rock On!
