3Please Please Me (The Beatles)
4(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (The Rolling Stones)
5Magical Mystery Tour (The Beatles)
6Johnny B. Goode (Chuck Berry)

I like this song, I just don't understand that there are lot of Chuck Berry songs that are similar to this, but this one became into really popular until nowadays. - somekindofaguy

Right, over-rated. I guess that's true, other than the fact that virtually every single rock guitar riff since 1957 has been based on this.
Chuck Berry is quite rightly referred to as The Father of Rock n' Roll.

7Like a Rolling Stone (Bob Dylan)
8Ice Ice Baby (Vanilla Ice)

Very overrated and overplayed. It has a good beat, but it stole it from Queen. Definitely not a good song

ThisIs an awesome Song What are you Talking bout HE didn't steal from Queen - Charlotte79
