Join Eric Johnson on Friday, May 24 at 1 pm for a warm-up lap to hear the songs that just missed the cut for the Philly 500 in 2024. 

Andre Gardner will then begin the countdown at 2 pm.

It’s tough to think of a better feeling of freedom than a ride with the windows down in the beautiful weather with the best Rock & Roll songs of all time leading you into the first weekend of summer.

Liven up your holiday barbecue or a trip to the beach by asking your smart speaker to “Play 102.9 MGK” to enjoy the Philly 500 through the countdown all the way #1, named on Monday evening as Memorial Day Weekend winds down.

Who’s #1 For The Philly 500?

The all-time greats will rise to the top of the list. The top spot could go to classic rock stalwarts like the Beatles, Pink Floyd, or the Who once again.

Bruce Springsteen is set to rock the city of Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park in August. Will “Born to Run” or “Thunder Road” get an extra boost with so many listeners excited to see the Boss?

Will Peter Frampton make another surprise rise with “Do You Feel Like We Do” in the first spot?

“Stairway to Heaven” has been called the greatest Rock & Roll song in history plenty of times before, but it’s up to our listeners to decide if the iconic Led Zeppelin classic should reclaim the top spot for the MGK Philly 500.
