This song knocked the Beatles out of the number one spot and the Beatles are quite possibly the greatest band of all time. Pretty good for a first hit song.
This is definitely top ten worthy. The Doors are the most brilliant band of their time. Them and The Beatles are king. The Beatles pioneered music and then The Doors turned it upside down. Light My Fire was a massive hit and it is an amazing song. Long live Jim Morrison.
I fail to see how Know Your Enemy by Green Day is above this. Green Day isn't classic rock and they're only okay. The doors is classic rock and they're great. I'm not even a huge doors fan but I think this song should be up higher
It couldn't get much higher.V8 Comments
Great song by Paul.
Why is this amazing song not up there?!?
First bass guitar solo. Some of the first use of feedback. Two chord guitar playing. Roger Daltrey's stutter. Keith Moon's crazy drumming. Rebellious lyrics. This song is more important than 95% of the songs above it.
The best opening, the best lyrics, the best bass fill, the best drumming, the best vocals.
The best 2 minute song ever
I'm not sure if this song would be classic rock since judas preist is more of a heavy metal band, but it is a masterpiece either way
Top Ten for sure. This song, like Bryan Adams summer of 69 represents the lives of so many people growing up in America. This is what rock and roll is all about.V3 Comments
