The Top Ten

Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
This song if a movement of its own.


This is the number 1 song

2(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
The cornerstone for rock music


3Imagine - John Lennon
Within this song, he captured everything that music is supposed to do. Make you think, make you smile, make you cry, and of course relate it to yourself in some kind of way. Imagine- Music evokes Imagination.. Truly amazing. RIP John
Its helped us from Lennon's death to 9/11.

4Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
I've cry everyday when I see nevermind poster that always reminds of kurt cobain...
Perfect band. Perfect song. Perfect vote.
Great song that defined a generation

5Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Maybe Dillon's "Like a Rolling Stone" could be #1 along with a few others, but this is supposed to be Rock-n-Roll! Stairway fits that spot. Some of these listed should not even be close to the top.

This song gives inspiration to all generations.
