Best Hindi Rock Songs

We all know how the Hindi music scene is dominated by bollywood which is famous for producing sappy romantic films which have songs which make you puke. Whatever we listen to is either from local bands in Delhi who either perform in English or don't know anything about any kind of rock. Whereas across the border there are many rock bands. But almost all of these people I mentioned get swallowed by Bollywood & which offers more money & accepts only pop. Ex:-Vishal Dalani of Pentagram, Atif Aslam. But lately things have started to change & many good rock songs have been produced. This is my list.
The Top Ten
1 Bande - Indian Ocean

Awesome song... Best in terms of music and lyrics and that's what makes a song perfect

Indian Ocean at its best. Disappointed that we don't see much music of this kind in mainstream Indian movies. Wonderful lyrics and classy music

I think it to be best rock song ever

Yes undoubtedly this song deserves to be at top

2 Bhaag D K Bose - Delhi Belly

This is a real good song. The rock bands above this, are more more chorus oriented and don't go along the Raw style of rock, thus making them a typical Hindi song again rather Bollywood. This song makes the genre complete.

Is there any one who can challenge this? This song from Delhi Belly was a rage when released.

Is there any song similar to this song not sentimental I hate those types... Any way this song must be at first always

Original in its mood and approach - this was the anthem of an entire generation that grew up in Indian suburbs, away from their family.

3 Garaj Baras - Paap (Junoon)

According to me garaj baras is the best Hindi rock song ever produced.

I love blasting this song on highway with windows down. My no. 1 Hindi rock song

Very good song... not Hindi though, it's Pakistani and in Urdu

Amazing song take of world

4 Sadho Re - Agni

True to Rock genre. Song with deep meaning.

Awesome song... love it.

After RUK JA BANDE this song is one of the best song!

5 Sadda Haq - Rockstar

There are good songs and there are masterpieces. This is beyond any of the songs mentioned here. They are all good songs, but it is a complete package, both in terms of music as well as lyrics, and to boot it all the acting capabilities of ranbir kapoor makes is beyond I have seen anywhere in indian movie industry.

It's so nice song and movie also.. Awesome.. I love this song.. Its rock...

Surprised to see that this song is not in the list. Shouldn't it top the rock list

One of the songs that keep getting better the more you listen to it

6 Dil Dil Hai - Saat Khoon Maaf

Only Suraj knows how to do it right.

7 Nayan Tarse - Dev D Nayan Tarse - Dev D Cover Art

This is real hard rock song. Just awesome! Its not that famous, but it is a true Hindi hard rock song.

8 Alvida - Life In a Metro Alvida - Life In a Metro Cover Art

Ok is just awesome singer ever born.. He's fantastic and the way he sung this song..I think no one can sing this song as effortlessly as kk has done

Best song ever what a beautiful voice and music best singer ever K. K the legend

Wonderful song with wonderful lyrics with wonderful music..

This and Rishtey from Life in a Metro - so rock. Nothing can beat Alvida, though.

9 Karmah - Punkh Karmah - Punkh Cover Art

The entire album has some great Hindi hard rock music. Great production. A Mist listen for Indian rock fans.

10 Aakhri Alvida - Shootout At Lokhandwala (Strings)

Brilliant lyrics... Awesome tune and equally deep voice... No word for it

Wonderful song... strikes the right chords in the brain

Wow can't stop listening it

Its veri beautiful song

The Contenders
11 Sanyonee - Junoon

It's not a song, it's some kind of magic. The artistes are no common men.

Everything is amazing about this song

This is best song every genaration

12 Nadan Parindey - Rockstar

Good Guitar Solo.. And good lyrics too.

Mind blowing song should be number 1

13 Bandaya Tu - Dharti

It's a superb song

allaw song

It is a nise

14 O Mama - Saat Khoon Maaf

KK is a legendary singer of Bollywood & combined with Javed Akhtar's dark lyrics & Vishal Bhardwaj's music, it does what it's supposed to do. IT ROCKS.

For me its best

15 Zahreelay - Rock ON

This is the actual real rock song to come out of Bollywood. The voice, the drums, the guitar riff and that killer shred solo.

The best ever! This is NUMBER 1 for me. The list isn't for 'best songs', it's for the 'best rock songs' by the way!

This boasts of being the first proper rock song of Bollywood.

I think this was the first ever metal in Bollywood

16 Main Khuda - KK

Great song. Nice lyrics.
Sadly ignored as the film 'Paanch' never released.

17 Rock ON - Rock ON

You all must be saying 'Can he be more obvious? '

This song is very energitic and as its name suggest very rocking also.

Deserves to be at the top of the list... Rock On!

Deserves to be #1 as the song title...

18 Woh Bheege Pal - Manorama Six Feet Under

Super duper hit! Catchy lyrics and amazing composition. Overall 10/10 from my side..

Zubeen da did a great job. All time favorite song!

19 Sun Raha Hai - Aashiqui 2

How the hell you people missed this song.. Its released recently and it was a bang in public, and believe me the film was a blockbuster just because of this song.. Absolutely awesome rock song..
But this should be second in the list after bhaag D. K bose, which is the ultimate Indian rock song

Best song for me. It should be on the top of the list... Never listened such a nice song with full of emotions

Amazing movie song. Definitely must be given a higher rating

I love this song... It's also really well known too... Great song

20 Dhunki - Mere Brother Ki Dulhan Dhunki - Mere Brother Ki Dulhan Cover Art

The best rock I have ever heard...I feel Goosebumps whenever I listen to this.

All time favorite song, just love it and what a voice that man have.. superb

This has to be in the top 10 list.

Loved this song so much

22 Sufi Tere Pyar Mein (Rock Version)

Nice one... Really underrated

23 Jee Karda - Badlapur Jee Karda - Badlapur Cover Art

This song gives the right kick with the solo intro on guitar, followed by an untamed voice to suit the concept. I recommend.

24 Yeh Dil - A.R. Rahman

I don't know I didn't hear it

I like this song


25 Bhulana Payenge Woh Din - Ahhirann

One of the best pop punk song composed in India. Sounds like Old school rock music. Feels like flying back to school. Sounds very much American Punk band sound. Would love to see the video of this song please.

Melodious pop punk song. Reminds me of Band Green Day. Happy to hear the such sound by a band here in India
