"Classic" Rock?

I'm a fan of all types of music. I can say that there is not a whole lot that I don't like. But there is something I just don't get. I was listening to the classic rock station yesterday while driving to yoga. Classic rock has been 60's and 70's rock. Some AC/DC, Rolling Stones, CCR, and such. It seems that "classic" now includes the 80's and some 90's. They were playing Def Leopard on the classic rock station.

Has the term classic migrated? Is this going to keep happening until I'm old and near death? What about the "oldies" station? Are they going to stop playing Elvis and start playing Coldplay? How am I suppose to know which station is playing what if they keep migrating the definition?
