The Contenders: Page 10

181 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest
182 Hard As a Rock - AC/DC
183 Behind Blue Eyes - The Who

Every emotion of every teenager is captured perfectly. The individuals play out of their skins.

184 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

Outstanding song. I'm not quite sure it belongs in this category, but I sure admire the musical taste of whoever posted it.

185 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses

This song is top ten worthy. Meaningful lyrics and one of the greatest guitar solos ever. what is it doing at 274? Guns and Roses kept classic rock alive when people everywhere were abandoning it for nirvana.

This song is still down here? Come on, this should be one of the top.

This guitar solo always makes me go nuts, its brilliant

Are you joking? Sweet child o mine must be top 6! Half of these are folk and blues sweet child o mine is rock at its best.

186 Of a Lifetime - Journey
187 I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

You youngsters missed out on Beatlemania, and let me tell you, these songs are the best

nice choice of music the beatles are definitely one of the best bands of all time, great song - ledzeppelin

I have loved this song since I was like 3, and I'm 12. Yes, I am a child who likes the Beatles! This song is great

I wanna hold your hand, I wanna hold your hand

Man I like this part!

188 You Can Call Me Al - Paul Simon

I'm not really sure why, I just really love this song

189 Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin

LED ZEP. COVERED A LOT OF BLUES TERRITORY OVER THEIR CAREER BUT VERY FEW "ROCK AND ROLL" SONGS. PLANT IN PARTICULAR LOVED THE MUSIC ELVIS AND ALL THE OTHER MEMBERS GREW UP WITH 50'S ROCK. THIS WAS THEIR TRIBUTE TO THE ARTISTS THAT CAME BEFORE THEM AND A VERY FINE ONE. ITS ALL IN THE TITLE.

Love this song

190 18 and Life - Skid Row
191 Tuesday's Gone - Lynyrd Skynyrd V 1 Comment
192 Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp
193 Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
194 Louie, Louie - The Kingsmen

This is real rock music. Ever since the Beatles became popular in the States some time in 1964, real music made by the Kingsmen has little to no fame. This song is underrated, and it is one of the best mainstream rock songs of all time.

Most covered rock song of all time. Simple and raw, but hugely influential.

Nobody knows what the hell he's saying, but a catchy song nonetheless. - Evant

195 I'd Love to Change the World - Ten Years After

love that song alvin lee great guitarist

This song cuts right to what's wrong with our society...in a cool easy to listen to song

196 Suzie Q - Creedence Clearwater Revival
197 Green-Eyed Lady - Sugarloaf

Can't help but sing along with this song every time I hear it and tapping my feet.

Classic song with a wicked electric organ solo! Timeless in any era! -G.

198 Ballroom Blitz - Sweet
199 Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

Seriously, why aren't there about 20 or 30 Queen songs on this list? Fat Bottomed Girls, Hammer To Fall, Keep Yourself Alive, Spread Your Wings, 39, Killer Queen, Who Wants To Live Forever, Too Much Love Will Kill You, We Will Rock You, Somebody To Love, Tie Your Mother Down, A Kind Of Magic, Innuendo, One Vision...I could go on.

Amazing song, seem that Freddie enjoy while singing this song

200 Telegraph Road - Dire Straits

This one should be so high up in this list :) it's just a perfect song. Mark Knopfler's work on the guitar is outstanding and the lyrics are great.
