Best Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
22 Enter Sandman - Metallica

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

23 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

Best song ever - crazysonicfan7

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

Not just the best rock but also the best song ever! It received two grammys and several other awards. Green Day is the best band too!
Greetings from India!


This list sucks! BOBD should be at least in top 5

24 Paradise City - Guns N' Roses
25 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Iconic bass line and riff. Legendary song.

26 Child in Time - Deep Purple
27 Baba O'Riley - The Who
28 Basket Case - Green Day
29 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

I am more into metal and harder stuff. But if you stick to rock, I think this song is the right choice to be at least in the top ten list. It has every vibe a good rock song needs and it is unnecessary to write all this down, simply listen to it, but I doubt anyone hasn't yet.

30 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
31 Rock and Roll All Nite - Kiss

Read this list and you'll see how much people know about rock, putting this song at 31. Seriously this song rocks

32 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Just.. A Piece Of Art.. Don't Know Why Isn't On Tens.. But This Is The Most Epic Song Of AX7

Just, Boss

33 Crazy Train - Black Sabbath


34 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple

The best riff in the world! One of the best rock songs ever made! Should be top 10

35 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

An amazing song with the best ever drum solo

A song worth the name

36 Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park
37 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
38 I Stand Alone - Godsmack
39 Master of Puppets - Metallica

This isn't rock, I love this song but its heavy metal!

master of puppets is best song ever and metallica is best band ever

WOW. Nirvana's good but Metallica's better. They are just epic mon!

This song is great,I do love this song,but its NOT a rock's a THRASH metal song.not even heavy metal.Thrash metal is heavier than heavy metal.And a song that isn't rock shouldn't be so high on the list. - zxm
