Love it!

Listen to him do this live at the el mocambo, he sings while playing behind his back

2 Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix

Transcendent talent

The live Version of red house in winter land is the best blues rock song ever period!

3 Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood

Wow. I love this so much. - Britgirl

4 Still Got the Blues - Gary Moore


5 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

Definitely blues, stolen outright from "You Need Love", written by Willie Dixon and recorded by Muddy Waters.

Just because some lyrics were stolen from a blues track, doesn't make it blues. - MontyPython

I wouldn't call it blues, more of a hard rock track, but it's a great song no doubt! - MontyPython

@visitor: ha, I also know that this song is a brutal rip off - one of their numerous rip offs. - Metal_Treasure

Great song but I thought Satisfaction would be number 1

the best

7 You Need Love - Muddy Waters
8 Cocaine - Eric Clapton
9 Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughan

He's the real KING!

10 Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin

Best song of led zeppelin,there is much feeling in it.

Probably the best blues rock song from the greatest blues rock band of all time - Bobby18


En mi punto de vista, es la mejor canción de rock blues de la historia, tiene tanto feeling, transmite tan bien las emociones, excelente letra y de la música ni hablar, podría ser el mejor solo de la historia también.

The Contenders

11 Mississippi Kid - Lynyrd Skynyrd
12 Crossroads - Cream
13 Sunshine of Your Love - Cream

Great raw rock.

14 Red House - Jimi Hendrix

This is way more bluesy than Voodoo Child and especially Purple Haze. It needs more votes. - Gg2000

Utterly captivating from the first note to the last. Oozes more passion in one song than some artists show over their entire career

Rock on

15 Love in Vain - The Rolling Stones
16 Slow Ride - Kenny Wayne Shepherd

This song is addicting. You listen to it once and you can't stop. Awesome song by Kenny Wayne Shepherd!

17 Oh Pretty Woman - Gary Moore

Killer riff, 3 solos, Albert King is a guest musician who plays one of the solos. Find the video on YouTube to see all that. - Metal_Treasure

18 Move It on Over - George Thorogood
19 Rocky Mountain Way - Joe Walsh

Greatest rock talk box and slide guitar solo combination EVER

20 Slow Ride - Foghat
21 Ain't No Love In the Heart of the City - Whitesnake

Ha! I came here to add this. - Britgirl

22 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple

Best of all blues rock.

How this song didn't make on the list. Come one its blues rock. - zxm

23 Jesus Just Left Chicago - ZZ Top
24 Layla - Derek and the Dominos

Not blues rock. No blues progression here, at all.

25 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin
26 Back Door Man - Doors
27 Mistreated - Deep Purple
28 Tombstone Blues - Bob Dylan

A better example would probably be "Leopard-Skin Pill Box Hat". - Gg2000

29 Yer Blues - The Beatles
30 Bad Company - Bad Company

Maybe something from Free instead... anything from Fire and Water.

Not hearing any blues patterns here. - Gg2000

31 Story of the Blues - Gary Moore

A 3 minute long outro guitar solo! - Metal_Treasure

38 Let's Work Together - Canned Heat
39 Black Night - Joe Bonamassa

Slow, sexy and powerful as a Blues-Rock do. Hear it. Feel it. Love it. Remember it. - Britgirl

The Best

40 Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin

The most original LZ song ever, and probably the best blues rock song. The solo is one of the earliest technical guitar solos ever.

41 Money - Pink Floyd

Could be higher no?

42 Ride On - AC/DC
43 Black Coffee - Beth Hart / Joe Bonamassa
44 Spoonful - Cream
45 The Other Side of Life - Moody Blue

49 Love in Vain - The Faces

Not bad, but I prefer the Stones version (as well as Robert Johnson). - Gg2000

50 One Way Out - The Allman Brothers Band
