181Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin

LED ZEP. COVERED A LOT OF BLUES TERRITORY OVER THEIR CAREER BUT VERY FEW "ROCK AND ROLL" SONGS. PLANT IN PARTICULAR LOVED THE MUSIC ELVIS AND ALL THE OTHER MEMBERS GREW UP WITH 50'S ROCK. THIS WAS THEIR TRIBUTE TO THE ARTISTS THAT CAME BEFORE THEM AND A VERY FINE ONE. ITS ALL IN THE TITLE.

18318 & Life - Skid Row
184Tuesday's Gone - Lynyrd SkynyrdV1 Comment
185Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp
186Louie, Louie - The Kingsmen

This is real rock music. Ever since the Beatles became popular in the States some time in 1964, real music made by the Kingsmen has little to no fame. This song is underrated, and it is one of the best mainstream rock songs of all time.

Most covered rock song of all time. Simple and raw, but hugely influential.

Nobody knows what the hell he's saying, but a catchy song nonetheless. - Evant

187You Can Call Me Al - Paul Simon
188I'd Love To Change The World - Ten Years After

This song cuts right to what's wrong with our society...in a cool easy to listen to song

189Suzie Q - Creedence Clearwater Revival
190Green-Eyed Lady - Sugarloaf

Can't help but sing along with this song every time I hear it and tapping my feet.

Classic song with a wicked electric organ solo! Timeless in any era! -G.

191Breathe Into Me - Red

This is not from the 80's..

192Ballroom Blitz - Sweet
193Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

Seriously, why aren't there about 20 or 30 Queen songs on this list? Fat Bottomed Girls, Hammer To Fall, Keep Yourself Alive, Spread Your Wings, 39, Killer Queen, Who Wants To Live Forever, Too Much Love Will Kill You, We Will Rock You, Somebody To Love, Tie Your Mother Down, A Kind Of Magic, Innuendo, One Vision...I could go on.

Amazing song, seem that Freddie enjoy while singing this song

194Telegraph Road - Dire Straits

This one should be so high up in this list :) it's just a perfect song. Mark Knopfler's work on the guitar is outstanding and the lyrics are great.
