The Top Ten

1 Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin

Been a long time since I...

2 Guitars and a screamin' lead singer. What else could you want. Direct and rockin' -

Plain out rock and roll at the core

One of my favorite songs from my favorite band - Ajkloth

2 I Love Rock 'N Roll - Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

3 We Will Rock You - Queen

He says: we will rock you. Does exactly that.

I'm too sexy for my shirt

4 It's A Long Way To The Top - AC/DC

Anthemic from start to finish and pure rock brilliance to put bagpipes right along side the instrument of rock 'n roll. It crunches and it soars while still remaining true to rock n roll roots. -

GREAT! I love AC/DC. I love the bagpipes in this song also. Awesome!

Any rock song that has a bagpipe solo is awesome.

This is the first good rock song with bagpipes, and its one of my favorites now

5 Rock and Roll Music - Chuck Berry

Chuck started it all and the Beatles covered it nicely. -

6 Takin' Care of Business - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
7 Rock and Roll All Nite - KISS

One of the only bands on this list that is still rocking out in arenas today. Rock and Roll all Night is the anthem to all partys anywhere
