Best Rock SongsJaketiv11
The Top Ten
I like this list. Many people do not agree with a few songs near the top. To me that means that this list displays the varying opinions of what "good rock" is. Personally, I don't think Numb should be no. 2 (I like other Linkin Park songs better) but I think that it proves that there is much variety in this genre. I agree with the popular opinion that Stairway to Heaven is the best rock song ever. It is an interesting song. It is lengthy, and of very good quality.
Best in history, most famous and well known by everyone.
This song made all-in-all music history.
Greatest ever, bar none.
Best and most beautiful song ever!V 13 Comments
Come on! Numb over Bohemian RHAPSODY! What is wrong with this list? Stairway yes, I love Zeppelin, but Linkin Park? Really? Queen is rockier than Linkin Park or Evanense (don't care if I misspelled! )
Also, Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who should be here!
this is just brilliant... bohemian raphsody all the way!
One of my favorite Queen songs, still listen to it this day.
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY ALL THE FLIPPING WAYV 5 Comments
One thing that points out the most from this song is its energy. The riff makes you want to jump crazy when you play it!
Smells like teen spirit is #1
This has to be on the top!
No song speaks better to an entire generation than this grunge masterpiece!
Kurt Cobain was a genius that's true but a lot of people often underestimate the sexy bass playing and the hardcore drumming

What song rocks harder that is not Metal or influence by Metal? This song really rocks like how Rock is. It has the classic feel from artists like Jimi Hendrix, Cream, The Who, and The Rolling Stones. That means this should be number one or another Blue Cheer song. I have proof why Blue Cheer is so great be looking at my account. - BlueFuse
Wow, I just voted for this song and it suddenly went to the top place. Aside from that, this song is amazing. Linkin Park never really came to do this sort of music again after 'Meteora'. Because of this I seriously considered voting for Evanescence' 'Bring Me To Life', but then I remembered that the same thing happened to them. Ben Moody left and the music changed. I think the music industry has died; that might seem harsh, but I haven't found music from after 2007 that I really enjoyed.
Ok the comments on this song just piss me off, like seriously do you guys listen to songs from your asses or what, the reason this song is in such high place on this list is because of how mainstream it is, and of course because it's modern, other than that the song is mediocre at best and certainly doesn't even deserve to be in the top 30. Get your stuff straight and listen to bands like the Beatles and Led Zeppelin, these were real bands who made real music, music that influenced generations after them, but did Linkin Park have any sort of significance or influence in the music industry, hell no.
One of the best ones I've ever witnessed, god blessed us with an awesome band like LP, thank you LP for this masterpiece!
The best for me, but this song is not Rock it's Nu-Metal.V 35 Comments
BEST SONG EVER.
At least should be above stairway to heaven.
Beatles are the best. Ha
Has been one of my favorites for almost 12 years now. Anyway how is Nickelback ANYWHERE NEAR the top 10? How is it anywhere near the top 1000 for that matter? One of the most disappointing bands ever compared to its popularity. Amazed to see that one of their songs has over 100 mil views. Just doesn't compare to the hits.
From Slash's brilliant riffs to Axl's voice and lyrics... This song deserver to be top.
This song has been the worlds favorite for a time! Come on! Make it to number one!
The best ever.no words just listen to the song and you will see what I meanV 5 Comments
Looking at the list and finding Comfortably Numb at 19, I find this list irrelevant.
Why is this not in the top 5?
Best song of all time.
VOICE, MELODY, GUITAR SOLO AND GREAT LYRICS. All the rock you need
This is the best
Wow really numb on #2
Dude listen to this song and you'll know what 80s rock is
This is so good IT'S GONNA BRING YOU DOWWWNN!
No. 16? Nah. This deserves to be among the top 5. Just listen to the song and you will know why.
A addictive and mesmerizing songs. Metaphorical lyrics, and one of the best riffs I ve heard. Deserves to be at the top
, stupidly aazingly incredible drum rolls, how is it not at least 3?V 2 Comments
AC/DC is such a inspirational band and has pumped out many great hits, including back in black and I think this song has the potential to be the #1rock song of all time!
This song is sick but I think the best rock song is bat out of hell by meatloaf it has to be the most epic song of all time in my opinionV 1 Comment
Metallica is my favorite band and this is their best song. Although not all thrash metal is good (although a lot of it is), this makes you wonder how this kind of music could be BAD! ) - jhismyname
I love this song because of the nice guitar riffs and great lyrics
Best guitar solo ever, such meanigful and beautiful lyrics - Disturbedpotato
Best at everything.. Guitar,drum,bass,aransement. The best song I've ever heard
Favorite rock song, well I don't know if monster by skillet is rock but whatever
Really? What I just lost faith to humanity
This song is awesome!
It's a really gorgeous song!V 2 Comments
Don't know what's wrong with this list, numb as the best ROCK song of all time? Evanesence in the top 10 list when these two bands are not even pure rock? Damn... What's wrong with "rock" or whatever listeners these days?! - Aldark
Black dog is the best song ever and Led Zeppelin is the best band ever! - Awesomelionking
This song is just AWESOME! How is this not in the top 5. Numb? Come on guys? If someone had some real sense of music, they would put this song on the TOP!
Awesome lyrics and great music, this song has everything in it!
Now, it's not like me to say sorry, but you know, now I'm waiting on a different story.
You'd seriously better know what that meant, or else!
Cool song, it gives you an other view of the world
You know what I mean!
