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

I think it to be best rock song ever

5 Sadda Haq - Rockstar

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

Excellent rock song I have ever listen.

Awesome rocking compose by rahman...! I enjoyed the song...

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.

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 boasts of being the first proper rock song of Bollywood.

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

A genuine rock/metal song. m/

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..
