Thunderstruck one of the greatest AC/DC songs
This should be number 1
Amazing riff - shatti
How is this so low. Pantera is by far my favorite band and I am for sure not alone. This song was an instant classic. Maybe the reason it is so low is because I THINK it was from 1989 since it was off of the Cowboys From Hell album. I also haven't seen ANY of the songs off of Vulgar Display of Power or Far Beyond Driven. Not sure about you guys but I am gonna say this is the ultimate 90s song, and DEFINITELY beats ALL if the Nirvana stuff on here (I do like Nirvana, but Pantera, Alice in Chains, System of a Down, and Tool should all have their songs MUCH higher than 34)V3 Comments
Even though Judas Priest is 100% plus metal I'll still vote for this song - SabbathV2 Comments
Why this song is not in the top ten is beyond me. I could get lost in this song.V2 Comments
Gets me pumped up every time.. Just listen to that crowd roar when they start playing it.. I think it's a lot more popular than scar tissue red hot chili peppers wise
This should honestly be number 12 on the list. This song is one of my favorite rock and roll songs from the 1990s
Awesome song... just the flow of it makes you want to dance wherever you are. There isn't anyway this song is down the list... it deserves a top ten listing at the very least.
I listen to this when I masturbate because it's so goodV1 Comment
Amazing song. How is black by pearl jam in top ten but not this...
McCready's solo is the best of the 90's.
Unique intro, iconic sound, best solo of the 90s.
#2 in my opinion
Great for having sex with your mom
I hate Megadeth and their fanbase but this song is unique - SabbathV1 Comment
This song may seem as simple as they come, but it has a heart-wrenching meaning that is very relatable for some people. In the song, Billy expresses how all he ever wanted was to be loved by someone. Anyone. This song means the world to me, and I hope it touches others too.V1 Comment
My fav GD song. I've been trying to cover it, but the bass solo is hard. Its just too cool, and very meaningful lyrics too! Two thumbs up!
their best song ever, and I'm giving big ups to master of all puppets since it was made in the 80s - numetalheadV2 Comments
My favorite song my I'm about to humming around and want to trash something.
The mixture of emotions this song invokes from me is incredible. It feels almost tranquil at first, yet I'm uneasy. Before long I am rocking out to the chorus and the ending becomes soft and eloquent. It is so perfect.
How the hell is this song not in the top 5?!?!? Deepest lyrics you'll ever hear
Great song, no less, no more, just perfection
This song is my second nameV2 Comments
Such a great antiwar song. Listen to words, then think about present time. What has changed?
Awesome song...that's all there is to say.
It's just getting you into out space. Clearly one of the best alternative songs of 90's and 00's too!
John Fru killing it on this track; Complimented with Anthony's chill vocals and flea's laidback bass. Drums are quite fine as well. Not to mention those beautiful guitar solos, DAMN they got some emotion
This is the best Alice In chains song - Sabbath
How come this is ranked at 50? This should of been in the top 20 at least.
WHY IS THIS SO LOW?!? Such a great song. Surprised Nirvana songs haven't been higher on this list! All Apologies, Come as you Are, Heart-shaped Box, Lithium... Helllooo they should all be listed at least up in the top 20s/30s! Nirvana lives on foreverV1 Comment
One of the best riffs of the 90's. Tom Morello absolutely innovated the solo scene with his killswitch scratching solo.
A brilliant song centered around iconic and eargasming riffs. Insightful and aggressive lyrical content involving well constructed metaphors about war and politics make this a must listen. Come to think of it, this song is more of a storm than a song. A storm of consistent and experience enhancing bass, powerful drums, and fantastastic guitar (especially the solo)
This song is the best song to use in graduations and farewells. :-)V1 Comment
Overall really calming and fun to play on a piano. Gotta love this song.
How is this left off the list?! One of the best Radiohead songs, with a driving acoustic piano melody.
"This is what you get, when you mess with us! "
I loved this song when it first came out and it still makes me smile to this day. Although I love Bon Jovi this has got to be better than "Keep the Faith" right?
