What is Classic Rock?

I got this email from iTunes yesterday:

Are you looking for something in our Classic Rock department? If so, you might be interested in these items.

In this message:
* Use Your Illusion I
* Use Your Illusion II
* G N' R Lies
* Appetite for Destruction
* The Spaghetti Incident?
* Live Era '87-'93
* Greatest Hits
* Use Your Illusion

Please, someone tell iTunes that Guns N Roses isn't Classic Rock (and pass the memo on to Pandora and Classic Rock Magazine). The term Classic Rock needs to be used more sparingly and accurately to denote those great bands like the Stones, Steppenwolf, Steve Miller Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Cream, The Doors, Pink Floyd.

So, with that in mind what are the best Classic Rock songs or bands in your collection?
