Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" turns 30
July 24, 2011

It's been on Journey's set list every night for three decades running.

"Do you guys ever do a show without 'Don't Stop Believin'?" asks Jim Axelrod.

"We haven't," laughs Journey's Jonathan Cain. "Not since it's been written, no."

"You'd have a revolt from the audience, wouldn't you?" asks Axelrod.

"Yeah, I think they would be throwing stuff at us," says Neal Schon, the band's guitarist.

It may have started as solely Journey's song - but it belongs to all of us now. The most covered, karaoked, and parodied song in modern music history.

From baseball to Broadway, Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" has become a national anthem of sorts - and with digital sales at almost four and a half million, it is officially the most downloaded song ever recorded in the 20th century.

"You know, we did something right in the studio," says Cain. "We did something right when we wrote the song. You know, we hit a chord."
