Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 21XW

401Levon - Elton John

Elton John's piano playing is underrated in the face of rock and roll. It deserves to be rewarded.

402Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater RevivalV1 Comment
403Powderfinger - Neil Young

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

404Come Sail Away - StyxV1 Comment
405I've Seen All Good People - Yes
406Something to Believe In - Poison
407In-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.

408Sunshine of Your Love - Cream

This song's heavy psychedelic riff got me into rock music when I was a child. It also got me into this band. This song was ahead of its time, being released in May of 1967. This band, especially this song, influenced heavy metal bands, such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.

What is wrong with this list?!?! This song has one of the most killer and badass riffs in music history and is creams best song. Why is this so low. This should be in the top 20 for sure.

409California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas
410She'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.

411Love In an Elevator - Aerosmith
412Twist & Shout - The Beatles
413The Hollies - "Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress)"
414Sign of the Gypsy Queen - April Wine
415We're an American Band - Grand Funk
416D.O.A. - Bloodrock
417Lunatic Fringe - Red Rider
418Red - Sammy Hagar
419Cherry Baby - Starz
420Let's Work Together - Canned Heat
