    OK, good question. I'll kick off with a recent visit to the Grove in Leeds. There was a band playing Creedence Clearwater Revival songs. Not just the greatest hits, but some of the more obscure album tracks too. Made my visit to an excllent pub just that little bit more special.

    And I can remember being in the Victoria in Morecambe after work one day in 1982 when a song played on the juke box which was clearly by XTC - their new single Senses Working Overtime, from their forthcoming album English Settlement. They were already one of my favourite bands, and that is among their best albums, but this was the first time I heard the song.

    With all due respect to one of our number,but if I found a pub juke box with Aqualung by Jethro Tull it would certainly get an airing.

    I play it fairly regularly on the Juke box in my local, a band I have seen live nine times.

    Pink Floyd-Dark side of the Moon might get some customers running for the door but I like it.Also anything from the Stone Roses would be brill.

    In one of my locals The Sportsman my mates always go for old rock like Black Sabbath, ACDC etc and stuff before I was generally born. Creedence Clearwater Revival is also a popular choice. Whenever I go to a jukebox I can never think of anything they would like as I grew up listening to dance/rave music but a song from childhood I remember from parents playing that I'll put on to not get chastised is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VDS8uArR0A David McWilliams - Days Of Pearly Spencer. Everything else tends to be trip hop based from local bands like Massive Attack, Tricky and Portishead as it's easy to think of.

    Also how do you overwrite a URL with words as SH did with CCR?

    One of the best juke boxes I ever came across was in the Baytree in Southampton back in the mid seventies, I drank there most week days then and we normally put on the same collection of tracks:

    Canned Heat - On the Road Again
    Bob Dylan - Lay Lady Lay
    Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower
    Rolling Stones - Ruby Tuesday & Paint It Black

    there were a few more played less often but we did have to get back to college so time was limited.

    Some people who went on the Manchester trip may remember the juke box in Bar Fringe, which I believe includes Dark Side of the Moon. Being a nerd and the age I am obviously any prog' rock will do.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Most jukeboxes use the internet now and any song you can think of tends to be available. The problem is thinking of it....
