Best song that there has ever been. Without a doubt. Guns n roses is the best band that has ever been aspablished and I would kill to see them live. Vote up
Tons of great songs on this list, but this is the best one...V33 Comments
Who even voted for him, he's got nothing to do with rock, its a joke come on really?
To all you people moaning that Michael Jackson is a pop artist, it's about the song not the artist. This song features a guitar riff and solo written and performed by Eddie Van Halen - possibly the most gifted guitarist at the time. This automatically brings it into the rock genre. You're all welcome ���"
I just want to say that beat it is my favorite song of altimeter. I love Michael Jackson.
Michael Jacksons music is terribleV13 Comments
If you ask a group of people "what comes to mind when you think of the 80's? ", 4/10 people will say Bon Jovi.
Kid rock quote about Livin'On A Prayer from Bon Jovi When We Were Beautiful documentary, "There are songs which are great within a trend, and then, there are songs which become the trend"!
Song still holds up today... We all know all the words... The story of the song is still relevant today.
National Anthem!V20 Comments

Too many great songs to list but when I think of "80's" rock songs, Journey, regardless of which song it is, comes to mind. - SociallyxxDistorted

A classic what's stands the test of time best in my book by a country mileV11 Comments
This song IS from the '80's... Like 1988, maybe before.
I would say this song is the #1 song for '80's in the heavy metal genre.
This song is from 1990 so yeah should not be on the listV2 Comments
The scream at the beginning. I always crank it up.
A great song, heaps of fun to sing along to! - heirofblackV3 Comments
Absolutely one of the most incredibly talented bands of all time. These guys played hard, fast and loud. Dickinson has one of the best voices in rock history, Steve Harris is the fastest bass guitarist of all time, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Janick Gers have riffs that never quick and Nicko on the drums never misses a beat. All this and they sing songs about literature - Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Flight of Icarus, The Charge of the Light Brigade in The Trooper. The sing from scripture in the Number of the Beast and the English Hymnal in Revelation. They tell stories that need to be told in Hallowed be Thy Name and Aces High singing about WW2 fighter pilots. They sing about history with Churchill's speech to the English people in WW2, one of the most powerful ever. This band can't be matched. Enough Said.
How the hell is this not number 1? This is probably the best song of all time! - ComaWhite21
This is iron maiden... One of the best metal bands of all time

I think that Mötley Crüe's "Home Sweet Home" should be in the top ten, because it's ' Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee! They stick to rock roots and rock styles!
