Great song by Paul.

251 Peace of Mind - Boston Peace of Mind - Boston

Why is this amazing song not up there?!?

252 My Generation - The Who My Generation - The Who

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

253 Brown Sugar - The Rolling Stones Brown Sugar - The Rolling Stones
254 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

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

255 Down Payment Blues - AC/DC Down Payment Blues - AC/DC
256 Broken Wings - Mr. Mister Broken Wings - Mr. Mister
257 American Girl - Tom Petty American Girl - Tom Petty

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.
