Ultimate Classic Rock began this competition with 32 of classic rock’s best summertime songs. The field is already down to 16, and will be cut in half again and again each of the next four weeks by your votes, until we arrive at the greatest summer song of all time.
Cooper’s celebratory ode to the greatest day of each and every school year advanced to this round by laying a severe playground beating on Y&T’s “Summertime Girls” in its first battle. Similarly, Journey’s “Stone in Love (Those Summer Nights)” arrived in the “Sweet 16″ by easily defeating Janis Joplin‘s “Summertime.”
You can vote once per hour in each of the eight second-round battles until voting closes on Aug. 3 at 11:59PM ET. Your choice for the Greatest Summer Song of all time will be revealed on Aug. 25, 2015
