One of the best song ever and the best by THE Beatles!

Always been a great song and still is
Great song and excellent singing!
This should be on the top 20. Eric Burdon nailed the vocals. - TheAwesomeBrosVotesV 4 Comments
The fact that this masterpiece isn't even in the top 10 shows what is wrong with modern era
The boss is up there with Dylan and Lennon. This is his best song and best album. Top ten worthy.
Not Bruce's best but his most popular Should be number one
Just One competitor... Thunder RoadV 3 Comments
How can you turn a brilliant Dylan song into something that is a work of art in its own right?
Others have tried, but not like this - ever!
This Song was not expected to be in the 70s... it should be in the top 20s...
I am officially out! I give up! #98? Really? You must be kidding me. Again, easily Top-20 or 25 (at minimum)! Come on people!
So much better than all but one or two songs listed ahead of it.V 3 Comments
The catchiest song ever. Sounds greatly I cream myself every time I hear this song.
The best southern rock song ever written
Sorry, this song got played to death and it makes me vomit. But honestly I was never that nuts about it. Skynyrd has many better songs...
Why can't there be more songs like this? Whenever I think of classic rock, I think of this song. One of my favorites.V 5 Comments
Head and shoulders above anything the Beatles wrote. I'll just let that sink in. For one, this is a 10 minute long INSTRUMENTAL! Most instrumentals don't keep me entertained for a couple of minutes. The drum track is harder than Tom Sawyer and YYZ combined. I can say to some of my friends, "Hey, you can play YYZ, but can you really play La Villa Strangiato? " The guitar performance is one of the best ever, by the most underrated guitarist ever, Alex Lifeson. The bass, as always when we are talking about Geddy Lee, is amazing.
This song is ' masterpiece. Rush COULD NOT HAVE DONE BETTER to make this song more dynamic. The high-hat, snare and kick drum rhythm shows that Neil Peart can do more with only a four piece kit (although he definitely had a bigger set-up) than most drummers can with an eight piece with 12 zildjian cymbals. Alex Lifeson brings this song to life with intense soloing backed by an elite rhythm section. I'm not even that huge of a Rush fan but I think this piece is incredible. Should be way higher.
Rush are the rock gods, they deserve a category of their own
This song is better than any rock song I've ever heard.V 1 Comment
Great classic. One of the staples of the generation and a great song to drive to
Slow ride should be in top 5. It's pure rock and roll, an epic sex and guitar journey.
You would think slow ride would be in top 50
Of course 'The Final Countdown' by Europe beat this out. Really?
A song which defined an era. Should be way up in the list
This should be top 10, awesome track that grabs me as soon as it starts
Why is this song so low?V 2 Comments
Love it! One of the best songs ever...V 2 Comments
12 string song of glory! This song is soft and so goodV 3 Comments
Nice to see Seger here. Man, he is a good and, I think, under appreciated songwriter. His songs have been covered by everyone from Metallica to Sheena Easton, and he himself has a great voice and backup band. One of the great performers of his generation.
Well written song that most all age groups can enjoy. Everyone has their own opinions & I respect all but Seger is ONE of the great singer/song writers of all time.
Amazing song. One of my favorites ever
A great song! Should be higher on the list for sureV 2 Comments
The stereo version of this song is Amazing unlike the stage version, so just give it a try.
Classic! Classic! Classic! You can t denied it... I am a fan of classic rock and this is by far one of the best ever in the genre. I think the name of the band doesn t help people to remember it.
Guys just listen to this song and aim sure you all will change your opinion.. This song deserves to be in top 5 position...
This song is simply perfect and beautiful. Timeless classic. Top classic rock song in my opinion.
Absolutely amazing and honestly somewhat underrated song. Should be much higherV 9 Comments
I kind of like Clapton when he's mellow and bluesy. White Room is an awesome song, though.
Eric Clapton was better before he went all mellow with Layla. His craziest guitar is on this track by Cream.
This needs more votes! Bloody brilliant number!
The source of inspiration for many groups that followedV 1 Comment
Know Your Enemy isn't classic, but Green Day has written many songs that are. Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Good Riddance, Jesus of Suburbia, Longview, Wake Me Up When September Ends, 21Guns, etc
Know Your Enemy? It's a great song but its not classic
I feel like this list should be a list for classic rock'n'roll bands that have really went all out for a certain song, Green Day isn't really a legendary band. Even their fans know that, I don't feel like this song should be on the list because Green Day isn't a really great band.
Full of energy...V 2 Comments
This is on my top 3 list of Journey songs. The fact that it's very overdone doesn't change the fact that it's awesomeV 1 Comment
