How could they equate this to Don't Stop Believin' and Eye of the Tiger in similar tracks? Terrible. This song is way better.

You should just be happy that the younger generation are hearing classic rock, at least. And there are plenty of young people who like classic rock but don't like Supernatural . But even if Supernatural was the catalyst for getting them into classic rock, who cares? What about the *original* generation who started liking what we now refer to as classic rock because it's what the other cool kids liked?

Supernatural isn't emo tweens only. Sure it's a bit angsty but I know plenty of mature adults who watch the show. Yes the song is widely recognized by the fanbase from the show.

Dust In the Wind was the better Kansas tune. I remember all the Kansas albums had ships on them (in Point of Know Return I think the ship was sailing off the edge of the world). It's sad that this song has been reduced to being a theme song for an emo tweeners TV show.

Kansas had a ton of great tunes before this particular piece shot them to internationa l stardom. And to think that these guys all lived within 50 miles of me the whole time !

As long as people are hearing this song, it should be all that really matters.

Always been a great song, but I really like how they use it in the Miller Lite commercial. (Guy gives a sample of his karaoke singing.) And that girl who comes in, is that Jan from the Toyota ads? Sure looks like her.

Supernatural didn't invent the song retards it was an amazing song way before this stupid show

I hate the fact that they announce it like a trophy or something, or their comment has nothing to do with the song. It gets on my nerves

Supernatural is an awsome television show. It's a great escape from those reality shows that everyone bickers in. There have been quite a few classic rock songs that have been made popular because of it. Those of us that watch it: some of the classic rock genre, some younger, enjoy listening to what is revived. So when you complain about the fact that someone is introduced or enjoys a song because it reminds them of a show. That's not fair to that person. We enjoyed it then and now.

Yeah, people need to stop being snobs. If you really love this song, then you should be happy that people are hearing it - no matter where it's from.

People need to calm down. It's good to see people discovering new music no matter where they hear it. I may not watch Supernatural , but it's good to see all kinds of people finding this song. :)

If it takes a tv show to turn someone on to this kind of music, then that person has led a truly sheltered life.

I didn't hear this song until I started watching Supernatural because I wasn't brought up on this kind of music but I love the song and not just cos it's on spn. People need to stop getting angry because others like it cos it's on spn.
