141 Iron Man - Black Sabbath

I love this song. I don't really care for metal.

Even in the 2015s, no band can produce the rhythm of the Black Country as they did.

142 You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones

This song deserves to be much higher. Along with Sympathy for the Devil and Gimme Shelter, this is one of my 3 favorite Rolling Stones songs. - stevekubin

Best lyrics. Great song.

144 Amazing - Aerosmith Amazing - Aerosmith

Anyone who doesn't like this song is crazy, This song is Amazing. Thus the title! This is one song by Aerosmith that is definitely underplayed.

147 We Will Rock You - Queen We Will Rock You - Queen
148 Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin

One of Zep's greatest! Immigrant song is perfectly written and the timing of the music is perfect for the words. Feel the beat & listen close, you can practically see in your mind the Vikings rowing the warships! & the war cry of the Vikings is so very perfectly worked in. I understand this list is of people voting for their favorites and I am ok with that. BUT a true music lover and/or connoisseur has agree this is a perfect song. & that's all I have to say about that!

Why in the world is immigrant song in this position? This is absolutely RIDICULOUS!

149 Send Me an Angel - Scorpions Send Me an Angel - Scorpions V 1 Comment
150 The End - The Doors The End - The Doors

One of The Door's best songs. It has a very haunting melody and will leave you with an aura of peace.

151 Heroes - David Bowie Heroes - David Bowie
152 Maggie May - Rod Stewart Maggie May - Rod Stewart

Such a great song, and Rod has such amazing voice.

153 Revolution - The Beatles Revolution - The Beatles
154 Shooting Star - Bad Company Shooting Star - Bad Company

Why isn't this higher on the list? This is a great song that tells a story about a boy who runs away from home to be in a rock'n'roll band, succeeds, and then is killed by alcohol. It has very powerful lyrics, And a great band to back it up, What more could you want out of a song?

This is a great song from their album Straight Shooter. Paul Rodgers gives his usual great vocal.

155 Dream Police - Cheap Trick Dream Police - Cheap Trick V 1 Comment
156 The Show Must Go On - Queen The 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!
