Classic rock is about heavy hooks, power chords and tight harmonies. But it’s also about letting loose and enjoying the good times. And there’s no better time for that than Friday evening, when we pick up our paycheck, punch out of work and enjoy a couple days of much-needed rest and relaxation.
As Loverboy get ready to release their latest album ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Revival’ later this month, they’re keeping quite busy summer on an extensive summer tour opening for Journey and Pat Benatar. The new album from the Canadian rockers, due out Aug. 14, mixes new material (including two songs produced by Bob Rock) with fresh takes of nine classics from their catalog of hits, recorded live on stage.
For close to 30 years, the Loverboy hit 'Working for the Weekend' has been a motivator for the nine-to-five labor force about the possibilities that exist away from job on their two days off.
The song, from their 1981 album 'Get Lucky,' inspires in a different way as part of a new TV commercial for the "reinvented" 2012 Toyota Camry starring NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, who typically makes his living on Saturday and Sunday.
