Happy Birthday to Us! Ultimate Classic Rock Turns Three and Goes Double-Double Platinum

Ultimate Classic Rock Turns Three
Ultimate Classic Rock

Ultimate Classic Rock is officially three years old today, and thanks to your incredible support, we’ve done Kiss one better and gone DOUBLE-‘Double Platinum!’

That’s right, over four million people visited our site last month. All told, over 48 million readers have dropped by since our launch in May of 2011. So yes, Dad, once and for all this IS a real job, and we did NOT waste our childhood.

In addition, sometime in the coming days we will reach one million Facebook likes. We can’t tell you how grateful we are for all of your support and feedback over the past three years. (Well, most of the feedback. Let’s face it, sometimes a few of you play pretty rough in the comments sections.)

We’ve got some pretty big plans for the coming weeks and months — including continuing to ramp up our fast-growing exclusive videos collection over on YouTube. You can see some of our favorites down below.

We also want to thank our amazing team of writers and editors, as well as sister sites such as Loudwire and for their help and comradery. Here’s to even bigger things in year four!

OK time for some stats – As of this morning, we’ve published 11,721 stories. Here’s the bands and artists we’ve written about the most:

1. The Beatles — 509 stories
