123Don't Bring Me Down - Electric Light Orchestra

This list is terrible, how is this not top 20

This is one of my favorite ELO songs. It's so addicting.

124Sebastian - Cockney Rebel

Super song, great performance.

125Welcome to the Machine - Pink Floyd
126Carrie - Europe

Love the song, and great vocals by Joey

127Same Old Song and Dance - Aerosmith

This is a song that you can really sing or dance to. One of Aerosmith's best, without a doubt. Deserves more credit.

128Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf

This, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Stairway To Heaven are the absolute untouchables in rock music in terms of creativity, storytelling, and above all composition. (Blackbird by Alter Bridge is a close-ish fourth is fourth for me :D)

129Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
130The Show Must Go On - Queen

This song should be higher than 92. It is the most dramatic, incredible, strong sounding song I've ever heard. They recorded this song when Freddie could barely walk!

131Nightmare - Michael Schenker Group
132Coming Back to Life - Pink Floyd

I don't understand why this song is so underrated? I've never seen this song on any of the best rock song list. This is just injustice with gilmour and injustice with music. And about this song you just gotta be listen and then you only decide

This should be bet number 1 to 5, the best well composed emotional rock of all time

It is a shame that this song is so underrated. It is a pity that it is usually missing in many best songs lists. Should be in top 10 of any list in my opinion.

134Good Vibrations - Beach Boys

If this is a real list and this is a real placing for this particular song, then all credibility is gone.

One of the best, and probably one of the only songs with a therimin

135Love Gun - Kiss

My favorite song of Kiss :3 I love Love gun

136London Calling - The Clash

I know, not classic rock, bla, bla, bla. This song is powerful and influential and top ten worthy.
