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. Don't agree with the list?

72Karmah - Punkh
The entire album has some great Hindi hard rock music. Great production. A Mist listen for Indian rock fans.

73Yaariyan - Cocktail
From being ignited and later intoxicated with deliriously loud peppy friendly feel, mood contorts to 'blue-romantic' sensitively plucked rock-concert feel in well-versed "Yaariyan". It brings out an alternate rock-anthem-ic feel where the 'heart-break' is epitomized in serenely ushered vocals, sensitively played drums, caring chorals and rhythmically delivered electronic distorted guitar riffs. Mohan Kanan (lead vocalist of AGNEE) makes a soulful outcry in varying singing shades and delivers soothing meditative touches. This is one of the most notable experimentation in genre as well as in vocals that should spring positive surprises. Distressed and mournful in emotions, Mohan's excruciating voice sublimes well into the contours of alternative rock-band thrives and later connects well with Shilpa Rao's affectionately booming voice. For every listener concern, Mohan collaborated brilliantly with Pritam and Raghu Ram in delivering out a gem of performance in "Aahatein" (MTV Splitsville 4 theme track), a song from similar genre and league and 'Yaariyan' simply adds to the glory. "Yaariyan (reprise)" has soft-serene Bollywood-ish familiar musical feel as it brings back its one of its favorite diva Sunidhi Chauhan on center-stage. It has the tranquil feel of Mariah Carey's R&B/Soul tracks feel, where tender piano drills along with gentle acoustic guitar riffs forms a beautiful decorum. Arijit Singh's classical 'alaaps' in varying pitches adds to the pathos. Like "Paani the (female version)" (VICKY DONOR), it carries a melodramatically profound background score feel that should work positively in challenging moments of the flick. Impressive!
Awesome song! <3 it!
