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.

Last weekend I was partying with Sam and Dean in Lawrence and we agreed Carry On Wayward Son is a great song by Kansas -- you could almost use it a theme music (official or unofficial).

Quite possibly my favorite song of all time.
