2I Love Rock 'N Roll - Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

Probably the best song of 1982 - Ajkloth

3It's A Long Way To The Top - AC/DC

Anthemic from start to finish and pure rock brilliance to put bagpipes right along side the instrument of rock 'n roll. It crunches and it soars while still remaining true to rock n roll roots. -

GREAT! I love AC/DC. I love the bagpipes in this song also. Awesome!

Any rock song that has a bagpipe solo is awesome.

This is the first good rock song with bagpipes, and its one of my favorites now

4We Will Rock You - Queen

I'm too sexy for my shirt

5Rock and Roll All Nite - KISS

One of the only bands on this list that is still rocking out in arenas today. Rock and Roll all Night is the anthem to all partys anywhere

6Rock and Roll Music - Chuck Berry

Chuck started it all and the Beatles covered it nicely. -

7Takin' Care of Business - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
8Old Time Rock and Roll - Bob Seger

It's just a great happy rock n roll song that makes everyone want to clap, dance, and sing along with it. It's got a wonderful beat and tune.

9Let There Be Rock - AC/DC

Love this song. Its my favorite of all AC/DC songs - Danielsun182

10Rock N' Roll Ain't Noise Pollution - AC/DCV1 Comment

The Newcomers

?Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

Talkin' 'bout perceptions. So easy to be a musician. Ask anyone...

Why is it that whenever a song is sung in First Person, and it APPEARS it is the opinion of the singer or writer, there is a lot of controversy? This one and 'Short People' by Randy Newman got a lot of flack for its content. Both are about prejudice as seen from the bigot's view. -

16For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC
17Rock 'n' Roll Children - Dio

Lotsa of fun (like rock and roll), sounds dirty (like rock 'n' roll), makes fun of and is rock 'n' roll. -

19So You Want To Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star - The Byrds
