“Don’t Stop Believin’” is regularly regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll songs of all time. With an undeniably catchy chorus hook, an excellent piano riff at the intro, and a strong, anthemic message, the 1980’s rock band Journey clearly hit one out of the park with “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Take a sneak peek of the song Don’t Stop Believin

As the story goes, “Don’t Stop Believin’” was recorded in one live take after the band spent some time fussing around with a click track. The title comes from newfound keyboardist Johnathon Cain’s reassuring message from his father. When we would be down and out about his music career, Cain’s father would tell him to “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
