Best Hindi Rock Songs

We all know how the Hindi music scene is dominated by bollywood which is famous for producing sappy romantic films which have songs which make you puke. Whatever we listen to is either from local bands in Delhi who either perform in English or don't know anything about any kind of rock. Whereas across the border there are many rock bands. But almost all of these people I mentioned get swallowed by Bollywood & which offers more money & accepts only pop. Ex:-Vishal Dalani of Pentagram, Atif Aslam. But lately things have started to change & many good rock songs have been produced. This is my list.

The Top Ten

1 Bande - Indian Ocean Bande - Indian Ocean

Awesome song... Best in terms of music and lyrics and that's what makes a song perfect

I think it to be best rock song ever

Indian Ocean at its best. Disappointed that we don't see much music of this kind in mainstream Indian movies. Wonderful lyrics and classy music

Yes undoubtedly this song deserves to be at top

4 Woh Bheege Pal - Manorama Six Feet Under

Super duper hit! Catchy lyrics and amazing composition. Overall 10/10 from my side..

5 Bhulana Payenge Woh Din - Ahhirann

One of the best pop punk song composed in India. Sounds like Old school rock music. Feels like flying back to school. Sounds very much American Punk band sound. Would love to see the video of this song please.

Melodious pop punk song. Reminds me of Band Green Day. Happy to hear the such sound by a band here in India

6 Garaj Baras - Paap (Junoon)

According to me garaj baras is the best Hindi rock song ever produced.

Very good song... not Hindi though, it's Pakistani and in Urdu

I love blasting this song on highway with windows down. My no. 1 Hindi rock song

10 Jee Karda - Badlapur Jee Karda - Badlapur

This song gives the right kick with the solo intro on guitar, followed by an untamed voice to suit the concept. I recommend.

The Newcomers

? Bhaag D K Bose - Delhi Belly

Is there any one who can challenge this? This song from Delhi Belly was a rage when released.

Top 1 means best! Absolutely cool! That's why, its supposed to be AWESOME!

Is there any song similar to this song not sentimental I hate those types... Any way this song must be at first always

This is the only Bollywood song ever to have a punk rock feel to it.

How the hell you people missed this song.. Its released recently and it was a bang in public, and believe me the film was a blockbuster just because of this song.. Absolutely awesome rock song..
But this should be second in the list after bhaag D. K bose, which is the ultimate Indian rock song

Amazing movie song. Definitely must be given a higher rating

Best song for me. It should be on the top of the list... Never listened such a nice song with full of emotions

It should be on top
