26Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

I was thinking of putting "Summer of '69", the most generic rock song ever, on here but with that song at least I know some people who don't like it. I was also thinking of putting "In the Air Tonight", a boring, lifeless song, but I chose "Comfortably Numb" because a lot of people worship Pink Floyd and treat this as their best song. I don't mind Pink Floyd, in fact "Wish you were Here" is one of my favorite albums, but a lot of their stuff is a little overrated. This song on the other hand is horrifyingly overrated. It is a boring, lifeless (but then again a lot of PF's stuff is a little lifeless, but not to this extreme), and confusing song. In fact this feels like a filler song to me, and I do know the where it fits in on The Wall. I guess people like this song because it makes them feel like they are on drugs, and if that is the case I am glad I never take them.

It's not really overrated. It's an amazing song. Don't say the song is overrated just because it's the most popular Pink Floyd song. If any Pink Floyd song is overrated it's Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2 - hype

27A Day In the Life - The Beatles

It might have been really ambitious in the 60's, but it doesn't hold up and I don't see how this song is better than songs like While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Here Comes The Sun

28Jump - Van Halen
29All Right Now - Free
