61 Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi

Being too cool to like BJ is like having a shower in a rain coat! If you love rock then this band has everything. Probably one of the best selling bands of all time, and certainly one of the best live. This is their trademark anthem, real crowd puller! Maybe not No1 but certainly top 5!

Great song it's too bad the 80's was the greatest decade of rock ever, probably the toughest decade to judge.

Dude u are so absolutely positively 1000 percent correct who doesn't like Bon jovi this is a great song by them or him or whatever

62 Any Way You Want It - Journey Any Way You Want It - Journey

Once again journey u have made another amazing song. Considering this is one of journeys top 3 songs

63 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

I remember this song in the 80s going to basketball camp.Some people did not like it then,till joshua tree came out and then everyone loved U2..
