Most Mind Blowing Rock Songs of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses

Genius intro and solo by SLASH
Amazing work on rhythm by IZZY Stradlin
Badass awesome drummer Steven Adler
Cool bass by DUFF,...

2Child In Time - Deep Purple
3One - Metallica
4Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
5Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

This song is amazing. It made my jaw drop. The best Judas Priest song by far.

6Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Most "ordinary" songs have 3 chords, the minimum number one can have; Bohemian Rhapsody has SIXTY CHORDS! Plus, it's just a mind-blowing masterpiece from the genius of all music geniuses, the maestro himself, FREDDIE MERCURY!

7The Show Must Go On - Queen
8Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

It's an ok song but it's way overrated and shouldn't be in the top ten.

9Damien - Iced Earth
10The Bard's Song (In the Forest) - Blind Guardian

The Newcomers

?My Last Sunrise - Demons and Wizards

Among the songs released after 2000 this one blew my mind - mostly vocals (emotional, perfect... ) but also music and lyrics.

There are only 3 other songs in the world that move me so much - The Show Must Go On by Queen, Beyond the Realms of Death by Judas Priest, and Child In Time by Deep Purple.
These 4 songs are also 4 of the most mind blowing and emotional vocal performances I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure

?Karma Killer - Robbie Williams

Heard this one live, it was awesome and I'll never forget it.

This song blew my mind, very emotional, he has a fantastic voice for rock songs. Should have stayed with the rock.

Should be number one it's so awesome

His voice was made to sing rock songs

The Contenders

11Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
12The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

This is one of the songs which fills your heart with pain, anger and love at the same time. I am sure that you cannot listen to this song and not remember your loved one. Benjamin, how much do I love the and every song of yours. I think of you when I hear this song.

Oh gosh!.. What a song..
Jane would really be proud of ben.. Laugh out loud
An epic song from an equally epic band...
