Amazing song that defines rock music!

222The End - The Doors

One of The Door's best songs. It has a very haunting melody and will leave you with an aura of peace.

226While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

Harrison & Clapton at their best!

I think it should be in the top the Beatles are great but when mark knofler,eric clapton,prince and tom petty was amazing

227Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie

Um...hello how has no kind thought of this by now. It is the all time best classic rock duet of all time. There isn't even a contender. This song is simply outstanding. From the amazing drum solo to the jaw dropping lyrics-come on guys this should be WAYY higher on the list.

No. What's wrong with you people? Of course this should be higher...alongside a host of other Queen songs.

228Supper's Ready - Genesis

The magnum opus of Genesis, the piece that, at its time, was the song that all progressive bands would try to get even a bit close to its overall greatness. It's a very long song, which takes some people off of it, but if you have the patience to listen to the whole build up and the climax, your life will change.

230Rocky Mountain Way - Joe Walsh
231The Chain - Fleetwood Mac
232Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac
233Rod Stewart - Young Turks
234Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
235Blackbird - Alter Bridge

The best rock song in the 21st century for sure, amazing vocals by myles kennedy and the solo is perfect, alter bridge is the new zeppelin in my opinion

The best song to come out of the rock genre in the 21st century. The fact I have to add this myself makes me sad.

236Animal - Def Leppard
237Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
238Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
239You Really Got Me - Van Halen
240My Sharona - The Knack
