221 It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll) - AC/DC It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll) - AC/DC

Guitars AND Bagpipes, the song that started it all

By FAR the greatest rock song of all time. It is a discrace to have it even out of the top 5. - dburt

222 With a Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker With a Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker

It's hard to improve on the Beatles, but there is absolutely nothing else that sounds like this song...pure genius arrangement by Cocker.

This is a proper rock song when done by Cocker, too low on the list.

223 Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin

Number 228?! This song is a masterpiece!

228 Love Gun - Kiss Love Gun - Kiss

My favorite song of Kiss :3 I love Love gun

229 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles While 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

230 Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie Under 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. Just...no. What's wrong with you people? Of course this should be higher...alongside a host of other Queen songs.

231 Supper's Ready - Genesis Supper'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.

232 Rocky Mountain Way - Joe Walsh Rocky Mountain Way - Joe Walsh
233 The Chain - Fleetwood Mac The Chain - Fleetwood Mac
234 Come Together - The Beatles Come Together - The Beatles
235 Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac
236 Rod Stewart - Young Turks Rod Stewart - Young Turks
237 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
238 Blackbird - Alter Bridge Blackbird - 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.

239 Animal - Def Leppard
240 Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
