24Hells Bells - AC/DC

This song has one of the best lead ins of all time... the bells followed by a classic Angus Young riff. Masterful. Get the same feeling now when I hear it as I did back in high school, and that's a sign of a top 10 in my opinion!

26Nothin' But a Good Time - Poison

This song is like the ultimate feel good rock song. That opening intro alone is enough to put me into a good mood

27Paradise City - Guns N' Roses

YOU know what I don't think there's any need to comment on this song anymore the previous guys already covered how awesome this song is. Wait I just... I said that no... And I just...

The true 80s rock song. From catchy guitar hooks to ever-popular refrain, this song remains as a true rock evergreen.

This is hands down my favorite song of all time, I straight loose my mind every time I hear this.

Now this is a song you can sing along to, it's truly ageless! The best of Guns N' Roses - heirofblack

32Urgent - Foreigner
33Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
34For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

An amazing song from an incredible singer. I've listened to Journey for since I was little, and all of Bryan Adams songs remind me of Journey and how much I love both bands. I will never stop loving this song and singer.
