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.


Best song ever along with David bowie's heros

4Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
Perfect band. Perfect song. Perfect vote.
One of the greatest songs of all time speeks to a generation

5Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Best Guitar Solo in the World...

6Enter Sandman - Metallica

7Stairway 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.
Amazing amazing song! For any mood!

8The Letter - The Box Tops

9What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
I've been asking myself the same question.

This is possibly the best song on the list...
Hey jude!

Don't let the writing credits fool you. Paul McCartney wrote this all his own. Lennon had nothing to do with it.
