"Carry On Wayward Son" was a progressive rock single recorded by Kansas and written by Kerry Livgren for their fourth album, 1976's "Leftoverture". In 1977, the song peaked at #11 on the Billboard pop singles chart, becoming their first Top 40 hit. The 7" single has been certified Gold by the RIAA. All initial releases of the single had a B-side of "Questions Of My Childhood", continuing the tradition of Kansas and many other bands with multiple songwriters of putting a song by the band's other primary writer on the B-side of any single. "Carry On Wayward Son" is 96th on VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs.
