301I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys

why is this all the way at 341? its one of the best modern songs and pretty much sums up todays youth

Classic tune, classic Arctic Monkeys!

302Barracuda - Heart

This is a great song by one of the great bands of the 70's.

The start of this one sounde like a big train coming down the tracks are maybe running through your head. This is a rocker.

Barracuda is the perfect rock song. - jerryw08

I think this song has a nice touch to it and that it is rock and country at the same time.

303Titanium - David Guetta & Sia

This song is amazing. It was one of the best songs in that year. It has a meaningful message. Sia's vocals are FANTASTIC! David Guetta and Sia make GREAT songs! It should be at least in the 70-80

Amazing song! I don't understand, all my relatives hate this song and I'm the only one who likes it! Best song ever!

This song will be a classic. Sia does a phenominal job with the vocals and David Guetta delivers a great message with the lyrics. Couldn't have done a better job.

Totally agree with the person who liked turn me on.

304Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil

A song that tells about what's happening to our planet as man lets it rot.

i absolutely love this song its awesome

305Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix

Dude Hendrix is just like the greatest musician ever definitely top 10
right behind queen Zeppelin
- idso27

Hendrix, easily the greatest guitarist to live, he inspired, and revolutionized most genres, and musicians his music deserves to be at the very top of this top ten without a doubt, just listen to songs such as Along the Watchtower, Voodoo Chile, simply, mind blowing!

I'm pretty shocked that nothing by Hendrix made it into even the top 50. This song is probably one of his most iconic, and no one has mentioned it yet! This man was a genius! @

I firmly believe that All Along the Watchtower and Purple Haze both deserve a higher standing.

This song is awesome

306YYZ - Rush

the best song ever by the best band dare to say there's a better drummer than Neil Peart!!

Lol 367? This should be at least top 50. This song is a milestone in learning to play drums (or guitar or bass) if you can play this you're pretty damn good.

No, Niel is one of the best drummer ever, no argue what so ever, but don´┐Ż't forget 2112 album though.

307Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

One of the most powerful songs with one of the most important messages

Best song ever great meaning but how does kei$ha make the list she suck like tim tok is horrible

308Cemetary Gates - Pantera

I don't like Pantera in general, but this one's a serious classic. Beautiful pinch harmonic, a lovely solo; its more of a power ballad. Easily top 20 material.

I'm a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery...
The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
It's nothing new for him to see
I didn't ask him why
I will remember
The love our souls had
Sworn to make - htoutlaws2012

I couldn't believe my eyes when I didn't see Pantera on the list. They are simply amazing!
The intro, the solo, the end!

309Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd's greatest song, one of the greatest classic rock songs of all time. Can't believe it's not even on the list yet. TEACHER, LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE!

One of the greatest songs of all time, I'd say it challenges Bohemian Rhapsody

This list is bull if it doesn't respect this track

If this list doesn't have this song in the top 10, the list isn't complete.

310Dogs - Pink Floyd

You've gotta be crazy not to include this song.

311Life on Mars? - David Bowie

Find this song, press play and then close your eyes. That is the only way you can possibly understand the greatness, depth and genius of this song.

This is the song that for me has the one of the best tunes with great use of the piano. But wait till you've listened to those epic vocals!

Seriously? Why isn't this on here? It's the best song ever! It makes me cry. It deserves to be on the top ten at least

A great mix of an orchestra and band instruments that come together, backed by awesome lyrics and Bowie's unique voice make this a special song. - ConaghMurphy

312Come Together - The Beatles

Brilliant song,from the genius mind of John Lennon...Best bass line ever!

313The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

This has been an anthem for many people! "Today I don't feel like doing anything, I just wanna lay in my bed. Don't feel like picking up the phone, so leave a message at the tone! "

This is one of his worse songs in my opinion. Where's Locked Out of Heaven or Treasure?

I think this is a really good song and I want to always have the song

This song is okay

314While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

This song is the best, it rocks. Just like everything the Beatles did. To see it so far below in this list makes me sad, people vote for that is gonna be forgotten a week or so from now. The Beatles are eternal, there are other great things too, but specially them. Something, Hey Jude, Yesterday, Hard Day's Night, I could have voted for any of them. But to see this so far below, it pains me. - Coolfighter

It deserves to be much higher on this list.
It has a feel which other songs lack.
I have no idea what it is doing languishing at the bottom of this list.

This is so low but why everything about it is great unlike those stupid songs you have voted for like taylor swift! The Beatles are the best band ever and that will never change! - TheThomasThomas

Eric Clapton plays lead guitar on this song...Kick Ass!

320The River - Bruce Springsteen

It's one of the most devastating songs I've ever heard. He builds the story beautifully until he completely breaks your heart with "now those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse? " The theme of the song, the lyrics, melody and the way Bruce feels it and sings it all make this song a masterpiece. This one deserves to be in top 30!

It is a really good song and should definitely be put on the list for people to vote for. It is a major part of his music career and should be shared throughout the world.

Less than David Guetta. No words. Just... sad.
