The Top Ten
Pink Floyd rules! - Userguy44
We have Togo deeper than Green Day on first place... maybe some Oasis? (How I wish.. How I wish you were here... We are just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl... Year after year... ahh... that voice...
There's a deeper meaning in this song than in good radiance and wake me up when september ends, a simple melody but a little more elaborate than Green Day and it's lyrics are pure poetry, should be on top18 Comments
Just awesome! One of the best by Green Day.. Love the guitar, love the drums!
Deserves the first spot...
Yes! Wake me up is the best song
My favorite song by Green Day, one of the most emotional song I have ever heard.9 Comments
What? This song suppose to be at least top 10. Kick ass solo by james... No way it's just 35
It's the best acoustic song I ever listened
This song is evergreen, please vote for it!
How this ranks below Boulevard of broken dreams baffles me.5 Comments
Short, but yet so meaningful. Describes life in a way that is both satirical yet hopeful. It really brings forth a lot of heartfelt emotion in the way he sings it. GO Green Day!
This band have changed my life so much, this song is one of my favourite songs by them and it was also the first song I learnt on guitar, I love you Green Day.
This is the best acoustic song I have ever heard. Its also the first I learnt on guitar. This is a classic it should be 1
Love all of Green Day's songs. It was between this and Wake me up when September ends for me, but I chose this as it was second place. - georgielikesgreenday3 Comments
Layla deserves the number one spot! No doubt about it! The passionate flow of the acoustic music is seriously one of the best I have ever heard! Vote for #1
It should be this and Hotel California (Hell Freezes Over version) battling for the first spot forever.
Definitely needs to be up the list. Top 10. At least
Nothing compares to Layla!16 Comments
One of of the best songs I've ever heard - unique melody, awesome vocals, great lyrics. - Metal_Treasure
Masterpiece. - Userguy44
Everything about this song is so haunting and chilling but at the same time peaceful, the harmonies, the guitar and the vocals provided by probably the greatest singer of all time, Layne Staley.
Alice in Chains Unplugged album is one of my favorites. I love how Layne and Jerry sing off each other. I'm thankful everyday for all of their music
The acoustic bass is amazing. Really, everything is in that song though.4 Comments
This song is a message about fame and reality. It is very metaphorical but sounds really good.
This definitely should be first. It revolutionized acoustic music. It shows that acoustic can be as powerful as hard rock.
Just LOVE it..
Wanted Dead or Alive is a good song by Bon Jovi from their 1986 studio album, Slippery When Wet, beside Livin' On A Prayer and You Give Love A Bad Name. I Love Richie's solo guitar and also Jon's voice (especially when he was screaming "Alright")...
Great song but where is the bleeding (unplugged) :(
Come on this song is one of the greatest songs, It desrves to be first by a large margin.
My favorite song in guitar hero :D
A full band singing in harmony for half the song. 2 legendary guitarist and one awesome bassist all on acoustic guitars. An awesome melody line played by Slash under the chords being played by McKagan and Stradlin. This makes it one of the best acoustic songs written by a rock band.
Well this song got the best intro, the best solo, the best outro, the best voice, the best guitarist and the best lyric
This song deserves to at least be in the top ten
Electric version in Tokyo 1992 and the 1989 AMA versions are even better.3 Comments
Soft smooth and shuttle...
One of the best things about the song is that it is all chords.. no fancy
Strumming just simple music at its best!
This would get my vote. I'm still trying to figure out how Poison came up with this song. What is the second best Poison song, by the way, if there is one? This is a great song though, everyone loves it.
This should be on top 3! Grow up guys!
This should be in the top 3---incredible song
Easy to play
I agree with other comment.. most acoustic zeppelin songs. really shows emotion.. thank you is an incredible song
Just Breathe should be in here somewhere.
Best song ever
Excellent melody, vocals, story and guitars. Great and epic guitar outro. - Metal_Treasure
Should be top 10...
There is a difference between ozzy and black sabbath - Gh_player
Unique melody. Sad and beautiful song. Great vox. - Metal_Treasure
Seriously? I know this isn’t much of a acoustic song but the intro is such a masterpiece of a fingerpicked guitar by Jimmy Page. Should be at least top 10.
Simply one of the most unique acoustic opening
why she had to go? OMG it's perfect
Why? Just why she had to go?
This has got to be moved up. Learned how to play it right, with all the instrumentation and everything. Not only is it a great song, but fun to play!
Fan--tastic: the best only other way to play this song...and a golden vc
One of the best
The who = best band ever.
Easy to play along and best one to scream and shout or sing in the car!
Beautiful acoustic song, also with really deep and meaningful lyrics most likely referencing Layne's death, probably one of the best rock songs of the decade. - petrucci75hammet
Its to underrated it should be way up there maybe 10 or so
This bad needs more popularity
Just listen to it one time and youll like the band
This song is one of the few that make me cry, lyrically amazing and a beautiful melody
This is an amazing song! So melodic!

Killer song from a killer band!
Why 49.. It is one of the best songs by evanescence an amazing band

These songs is really good! The guitar is having very good chord progressions! Need to be in top ten
Just an amazing song it has to be higher than 23rd
You should here Pete Towshend do Won't Get Fooled again Acoustic... here is crappy video caught on someone's cel phone:
This song is both number 41 and 48? Does that mean it's also number 89?
You know this one?
You absolutely have to hear it!
Brings warmth to my heart
I love all their songs and this one is great
I think this is one of their best song ever, it's not like their usual songs, and iam sure you'll like it at the first time you listen to it. Great guitars, and colaboration between tom and mark is just amazing! And travis with his percussion make this song perfect!
An incredible song <3 just lovely to hear ^^
