The Top TenXW

1Blowin In the Wind - Bob Dylan

Dylan goes electric; and the world changed.

2We Will Rock You - Queen
3Don't Be Cruel - Elvis Presley

John Lennon said it best, "Before Elvis, there was nothing".

4She Loves You - The Beatles

Seeing The Beatles and Bob Dylan below Justin Bieber and Gangnam Style makes me sad. - PetSounds

The Beatles and Elvis actually established "trends" that are still going strong until today.
Psy and Bieber are mere blips on the radar, with even Queen and MJ being pale by comparison.

5Beat It - Michael Jackson
6Gangnam Style - Psy

I look online, looking for something PSY.
I mean 2 billion views, I had no idea why! - DapperPickle

7A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall - Bob Dylan
8Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
9Why This Kolaveri Di - Dhanush
10Purple Haze- Jimi Hendrix

Hendrix' debut at the Monterey Pop Festival was earth-shattering, in part because nobody knew who he was, or expected anything like what they witnessed.

The Contenders

11Baby - Justin Bieber

Ah, the trend of hate, it's a beautiful thing... - DapperPickle

12The Twist - Chubby Checker
13The Real Slim Shady - Eminem

Well, an absolute trend setting song by an absolute trend setter.
One of the most popular songs of that era.
Old-school's finest hip-hop work ever done.
Perfect lyrics. Jaw dropping beat and flow.
Emimen, the evergreen. - itsflashbuddy

14Autobahn - Kraftwerk

Something which initiated an entire industry of wonders. - PositronWildhawk

15All the Young Dudes - Mott the Hoople
16Happy - Pharrell Williams

Pharrell, were you high when making this song? - DapperPickle

17They Don't Care About Us - Michael Jackson
18Rocket 88 - Ike Turner

Even though Ike Turner was a huge jerk, this is considered the very first "rock and roll" song, and was long before he met Tina.

19Everybody - Backstreet Boys
20The Macarena - Los del Rio

Think "Gangnam Style", but in Spanish.
