Top 10 Best Rock AnthemsBaltimore1993 Songs that will forever be sung to inspire and pump us up!
The Top Ten
Greatest Rock Anthem of all ti,e but also most recognizable intros ever
Please We Will Rock you is way more worthy of number one.
Most popular song of all time
No one ever sounded better on vocals than Steve Perry in this classic!3 Comments
Can be overplayed a LOT but nothing beats this. It's a CHAMPION song and it came from a CHAMPION BAND performed countless times by a champion man named Freddie Mercury. I don't know if anyone would ever be able to beat what awesomeness this song holds. Oh... And where's WE WILL ROCK YOU?! :/ the number one picked song is a LIE.
Should be higher... Freddie Mercury was the King (uh... Queen) of Rock Anthems... ever see the vids of "Queen" at live concerts? And where is "We Will Rock You"?
This is chanted all around the world, you must watch Queen live. They didn’t just write songs they write anthems and epitomised crowd involvement8 Comments
Most popular song ever. And one of the best. Deserves EASILY top 3
This is one of the most famous songs on this list. - Beautifulsound

A proper rock anthem is a song that could be played at any event to pump up a crowd. I like many of the songs on this list, but only a few of them really meet that criteria. "Rock You" is the quintessential example. Also, there should *really* be some Boston and Styx here!
This is top ten. For sure. Play it for any five year old and they get it.
People know this song before they know KISS. It's the greatest rock and roll anthem ever made, should be on top in my opinion. The song is rock and roll, it makes everyone want to "rock and roll all night and party everyday"
KISS is notorious for making epic rock anthems, but not even Beth or Detroit Rock City can top this song, easily the greatest rock and roll song ever written
Amazing bass in this awesome song. The Who's generation was simply amazing! I hope that people would vote this as number one!
People, for whatever reason, hated this song when it first came out. However, KISS didn't care, as Paul Stanley said, "KISS doesn't play by your rules", the band continued to play to song for years in a more heavy rock and roll version. This song should be higher up I think
The single greatest rock anthem, nothing else even remotely comes close.
The most epic song ever. Everything perfect: riffs, drums, bass, vocals and cannons.
If there is a real ROCK anthem, it's this song. No doubts, since it's all about rock'n'roll and can be used as an welcome song for someone, who is only learning about Rock'n'Roll world.
This song is just ahhh
A true Classic piece of art
I LOVE THIS SONG - KrazzyMadd
This song is the best. How is this not number 1. Although it's weird that It's my life isn't on this list. I guess all the Bon Jovi fans chose this song.
Immortal 80's. All kudos in the world to AC/DC, Who, Queen, etc. as reliably good bands, but Bon Jovi knocked this song out the park.
Everone knows the corus and the teltale voicebox opener
"Don't let em tell ya that there's too much noise, they're to old to really understand", the culmination of Gene and Paul in lead vocals makes this song fantastic. The song is all most as catchy as rock and roll all nite. I think this song should be in the top ten spot at least
Smells Like Revolution Man!
This song deserves to be number one on this list for the huge effect it had on music and society, the intensity of the music and lyrics, and the catchiness of the tune. A brilliant song for sure!
nirvana was truly the best kurt cobain had the real power in his voice
I grew up to Journey and Queen, and other greats, but Peaked with smells like teen spirit.3 Comments
I always feel like I should stand when this song plays.
This is a great high energy anthem rock song!
the guitar solo with feelings - snoopbanks
If you know it - a comment isn't necessary.
Millenials need to know what real rock is...the sounds of their parents
Great song, full of High Voltage, old-school Rock and roll.
The riff is unmistakable! This song started AC/DC's international careers and it was Bon Scott's greatest song! Amazing song!
My favorite song by AC/DC along with Let There Be Rock. Bon Scott had a truely unique voice and will be missed by millions around the world - Danielsun182
The chorus is fun to sing and the guitar distortion has the right amount to call it a piece of art
The intro in itself speaks wonders. Then, you progress into one of the best heavy metal riffs of all time, with Axl Rose and his classic, one-of-a-kind sound. Then, the end is simply insane, with Axl screaming, Slash shredding, Duff rocking out, Izzy doing his thing, and then Steven beating the crap out of the drums. Easily #1.
Awesome anthem... Even better to see live than on the album...
My Chemical Romance saved my life. And all their songs have really touching lyrics, and Gerard is the sexiest man on the planet! I My Chemical Romance!
One of the best rock anthems period and also one of the best bands in modern age rock. This band changed my life, I truly wouldn't be the same without them
My Chemical Romance is like, amazing. Nothing can compete with them Great meaning too, powerful song! This song rocks
I used to think this song was overplayed but when it's not shoved up your face, it's one of the greatest modern rock pieces out there.2 Comments
Was good then still tells a story
Born to Run encapsulates the American Dream.
This was not only an incredible song lyrically but it also had great vocals accompanied by and instrumental that was very well done. In addition it tells a great story has an amazing message, and is a classic great rock and roll song. It compiles multiple elements of rock that many songs miss out on.
This should be top ten. Maybe number one!
This should at least be in the top 5. I am not sure why it is ranked 30.
This song definitely makes everyone who listens to it feel a sweet emotion. Aerosmith ROCKS! - rockerchic18
Awesome song. Almost everybody knows it or at least heard of it. Beautiful
Just a classic
The Anthem of Anthems
One of the best without doubt
The anthem of the 90s no doubt1 Comment
Such a great long song. If it were like 3:30 it would be good but over ten minutes is fantastic.
Definitely the best Rock Anthem of all time!
Ballroom Blitz is a real rock anthem! THE SWEET ROCK THE HOUSE!
You know, the song on the state farm commercials. Yeah it is amazing, journey is a INCREDIBLE band. I'm sad my friend Katie doesn't know about journey. Funny, my name is Katie too.
Turn this song up all the way and the drums will make your flat bunz jiggle in happyness.
What an AMAZING song from one of the worlds greatest rock bands, you can't resist singing along to that chorus. YOU... SHOOK ME AL NIIGHT LONG. "Back in black", "For those about to rock (we salute you)" and " It's a long way to the top" are also very good anthems from AC/DC
Top 10 at least
This should definitely be closer to the top
This should be at the top
