The Contenders: Page 21

401 Powderfinger - Neil Young Powderfinger - Neil Young

Neil Young is another underrated rock star. This track is both poetic and hard rocking.

402 Come Sail Away - Styx Come Sail Away - Styx V 1 Comment
403 I've Seen All Good People - Yes I've Seen All Good People - Yes
404 Something to Believe In - Poison Something to Believe In - Poison
405 In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly

This acid and psychedelic rock song made this Californian psychedelic rock band famous during these glorious years. Even though this song is famous, and even influencial to heavy metal music, this band is very underrated. Listen to their first album, it sounds a lot more like this song, which was released on their second album with the same title as this song in 1968.

406 California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas
407 She's a Rainbow - The Rolling Stones She's a Rainbow - The Rolling Stones

At least top 20. One of the best songs from one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time.

408 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses

Even better cover of an already amazing song!

Put this song on higher rank in this list

411 Sign of the Gypsy Queen - April Wine Sign of the Gypsy Queen - April Wine
412 We're an American Band - Grand Funk We're an American Band - Grand Funk

415 Red - Sammy Hagar Red - Sammy Hagar
416 Cherry Baby - Starz Cherry Baby - Starz
417 Let's Work Together - Canned Heat Let's Work Together - Canned Heat
418 Hello, Hooray - Alice Cooper Hello, Hooray - Alice Cooper
419 Time Was - Wishbone Ash Time Was - Wishbone Ash

Gorgeous bass riff, stunning twin guitars. Should have been huge.

420 Light My Fire - The Doors Light My Fire - The Doors

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.
