Default The Chain is the NEW Landslide.

I just saw I, Tonya, a movie about Tonya Harding the figure skater who tried to have another figure skaters knee bashed in. The music is full of 1970s and 80s music. To my surprise The Chain came on at a really important part of the movie during a long montage scene. It was sort of like Guardians of the Galaxy but I even thought it was more prominent. It looks like that song is the new Landslide. It's everywhere and it's charting higher than Landslide now in iTunes.

By the way, I, Tonya is great movie and Margot Robbie nails her.

How funny, I was just thinking this!

I think it's interesting that Fleetwood Mac, while being known for their hits like GYOW or Dreams has typically had the connotation of a "soft" almost feminine band, what with Landslide being covered perhaps an innumerable amount of times.

But The Chain is one of those driving songs that seems to really appeal to people across a spectrum. Whether it's that bass line, the lyrics, dark undertones - everyone can find something to latch onto. Even my teenage brother was blasting it after it was in Guardians of the Galaxy.

And let's not forget this video that gained traction a few months ago:

I think this is all a testament to the immense timelessness and accessibility of the Mac. They'll always stand the test of time.
