224King of Kings - Motorhead

Behold the King
The King of Kings
On your knees dog
All hail

Bow down to the
Bow down to the King
Bow down to the
Bow down to the King

The King grinned red
As he walked from the place
Where the traitor lost both his name and his face
Through the halls and the corridors
Stinging in blood
He tasted his grin and it tasted good
The King took his head
Left him broken and dead - htoutlaws2012

225The Way I Am - Eminem

Another Eminem song. But the best thing about this list is that till now there is no Justin Bieber's song.

226Cult of Personality - Living Colour

I know your anger I know your dreams I'm the cult of personality!

227Just Breathe - Pearl Jam

This is a fantastic feel-good song. - Songsta41

228Wake Me Up - Avicii

This is absolutely unfair to AVICII!


Avicii's best. He knows how to sing, and he sings this song phenominally well.

229Changed My Mind - E-Dubble
230Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater

This is, in my eyes, the best song, not even a song, a masterpiece there ever was or will be. The first time you listen to this track, so much nostalgia comes back to you and it is the best thing you will ever experience. The overture is the best one possible. Disney's soundtrack overtures can't beat that. The lyrics are amazing, and the metaphor behind the whole scene is so, so clever. May this and Octavarium rise to the top!

Masterpiece, listening to this song is like A Night At The Opera experience that has the combination of subjects that just blow me away. This and octavarium should have their positions reconsidered

231Monster - Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragon is relatable and really knows how to make a good beat.

Why are there so many Imagine Dragons songs on this list? They aren't that great. - Imreallyboredrightnow

I'm only a man with a candle to guide me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger. - htoutlaws2012

233Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Love this song. I have heard all of A7Xs songs, and as much as I love ALL of them, this one takes the top.

Amazing vocals from m shadows, fantastic lead guitar from synyster, brilliant rhythm to match from zacky, outrageous drumming from portnoy and the rev, plus great bass from johnny to complete it. Top song, best no doubt


Dragged ya down below
Down to the devil's show

Flesh is burning
Until the end of time here
Nothing stops the madness,
Turning, haunting, yearning
Pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah
Ooh, it's your nightmare! - htoutlaws2012

I love Avenged Sevenfold, and this is my favorite sevenfold song

234Highway to Hell - AC/DC

R you crazy ac/dc rules! I demand 4 you to rank it betta man.

The song that explains the life most of us live or want to live. The best song from the best band that ever walked across the stage. Bon Scott will live forever in his music!

Bon Scot is no doubt the most legendary singer of the 80's and the opening guitar riff makes you feel like your actually on a highway to hell

One of the best AC/DC songs

235Time To Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman

This song brings you to a unbelievably glorious, joyful, as well as far, deep, and away neverland experience... So relaxing yet meaningful...

This song makes me feel hopeful and optimistic, it gives me the push to continue my life delightfully, great voices and great singers.

A time which we all experience, must go through. This song causes me to be aware of where I am at in whatever moment is present. I am inspired to appreciate, enjoy and cherish this, because the 'Time to Say Goodbye' is always there, opening the door to new possibilities while a memory is forever rememebered.

Amazing uplifting song

236Highway Star - Deep Purple

Classic High Energy, needs to be way higher!

This song started Heavy Metal...Still Great today!

237We are the World - U.S.A. for Africa

It is difficult to choose the best song in Michael Jackson's legacy. All his songs are unique and breathtaking. The hymn "We Are the World" definitely deserves our recognition.

This should be also in the list because of the lyrics that can touch any heart of all mankind. And it got a revival version where many of the popular artist this time has do it for the people who needs help.

238Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie

Bowie is one of the absolute best. The whole Scary Monsters album was fantastic.

The highest song by David at 302. THERE'S NO JUSTICE!

Not the Best David Bowie song. But still great.

239Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

333, really? Seeing that Michael Jackson, Beatles and G&R (who are undoubtedly great artists, but honestly, there are not gods or something) all have around 10 songs in the top 100 while one of the greatest and most influential metal bands of all time has their first song at 333 is just sad. While BTROD is not their best song, it's just beautiful. It has both chilling and hard sections and a godly guitar solo. No hate against the other artists, but this should at least be 50.

This song should be near stairway to heaven it's just as epic

Not one of my favorite priest songs but it was the first I found on the list an its at 316 that's rediculousy low even for just this song it's got a good solo 2 good one in fact and great lyrics

240Hero - Skillet

Really uplifting and awesome songs

This is my favorite skillet song

2nd top song in my rock list 1st is it's my life bon jovi

Skillet sucks
