Best Rock Songs

The Top Ten

Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Cover Art

this is just brilliant... bohemian raphsody all the way!

BEST ROCK SONG ever written. Stairway To Heaven isn't even within cooee. Queen is the BEST ROCK BAND ever, and Freddie Mercury?... BEST ROCK SINGER of all time!

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!

Close call with stairway, but this is three wonderful songs in one

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

Best in history, most famous and well known by everyone.
This song made all-in-all music history.

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.

Greatest ever, bar none.

Best and most beautiful song ever!

Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Cover Art

Best rock song of all time Bohemian Rhapsody is pop/opera/ with a little bit of rock at the end love both songs though

Anyone who thinks someone is a poser for listening to this track are the real poser. Nirvana is great and really rocks. All Nirvana tracks are good in their own way. Rock is the best.

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!

Second Time Around - Blue Cheer Second Time Around - Blue Cheer Cover Art

There's been greater.

Are you kidding me! I can take neutral and negative things of Blue Cheer. I was replying to your comment because I do not want more people to not try Blue Cheer because of comments like yours. So, I am trying to leave good comments about Blue Cheer and reply to comments like yours. I wanted to do something for music. What is the since of talking about music or any music artist if I cannot reply to comments!


Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Cover Art

Just 'cause this isn't a classic doesn't mean it's worse than those in the top 10.

Best song ever

I wish somewhere a bear will find me!
Don't worry, he doesn't actually say that.


Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

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!

Just love it can't believe this is 24th this is number "'1"' people

Back In Black - AC/DC

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 opinion

They rock long life ACDC


Numb - Linkin Park Numb - Linkin Park Cover Art

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!

I downloaded this song because it was in the high places of this ranking. I tried to like it, but after several times I heard it I could not stand it and I had to delete it. This song and Linkin Park in general is very overrated.

One - Metallica One - Metallica Cover Art

Best tune ever!

Best guitar solo ever, such meanigful and beautiful lyrics

Best at everything.. Guitar,drum,bass,aransement. The best song I've ever heard

Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Cover Art

That solo...... CLASS

The Newcomers

? Spoonman - Soundgarden Spoonman - Soundgarden Cover Art
? Runnin with the Devil - Van Halen Runnin with the Devil - Van Halen Cover Art

The Contenders

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Cover Art

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.

How it's not on the top?...

Kashmir - Led Zeppelin Kashmir - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

Iconic bass line and riff. Legendary song.

Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Cover Art

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!

Better than welcome to the jungle

Tom Sawyer - Rush Tom Sawyer - Rush Cover Art

Rush is the best.

, stupidly aazingly incredible drum rolls, how is it not at least 3?

' great song, but 2112 should be first in this list, nothing tops that one.


King Nothing - Metallica

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! )

For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

I love this song because of the nice guitar riffs and great lyrics

Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

This song is very great, but it seems a little bit overrated!

This is the best

Wow really numb on #2
Dude listen to this song and you'll know what 80s rock is

For me...greatest song ever. I'm 13 yrs old HATE today's music with a passion. Back then you didn't need auto tune to make great songs. This proves that point, especially when he says "YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE?!? YOU IN THE JUNGLE BABY, YOU GONNA DIEEE! " Axl rose is a badass frontman and Guns n Roses are one of the greatest bands of all time

Hey Jude - Beatles Hey Jude - Beatles Cover Art

Good Song but this is not rock.This is Classical Music.Or kind of Acoustic Pop

At least should be above stairway to heaven.
Beatles are the best. Ha

Black Dog - Led Zeppelin Black Dog - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

Black dog is the best song ever and Led Zeppelin is the best band ever!

The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin Cover Art

This song is amazing! With its blood-chilling intro that picks up and gets extremely heavy and awesome. Not to mention the clever melodic uses in Ben's voice with the well thought out drum and guitar parts, this song mixes together all that is good in rock. In fact, Breaking Benjamin does that with pretty much all of their songs. Just because they're not from the 80s doesn't mean they aren't one of the best bands ever

You know what
I don't know this song but I've just hear it and loved it and I'm downloading it
Any song who leave an impression from the first time need to be the winner
And here is your winner
This song is cool guys seriously

This song made a CRAZY success and made BB Hollywood Stars!

This song has changed the world and caused music chaos!
Breaking Benjamin are truly underrated, this song is a BLAST!

Hotel California - Eagles Hotel California - Eagles Cover Art

No. 16? Nah. This deserves to be among the top 5. Just listen to the song and you will know why.

Bring Me to Life in the top 10 over this amazing song? God some peopleā€¦

A addictive and mesmerizing songs. Metaphorical lyrics, and one of the best riffs I ve heard. Deserves to be at the top

Enter Sandman - Metallica Enter Sandman - Metallica Cover Art

Not only is this a classic song but it also has the best lyrics
