182 If You Could Read My Mind If You Could Read My Mind

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

183 Of a Lifetime - Journey Of a Lifetime - Journey
184 (You're The) Devil In Disguise - Elvis Presley (You're The) Devil In Disguise - Elvis Presley

Even though this is a good rock song recorded by Elvis Presley during his later years (exactly in 1963), this song defines true rock music.

One of the great 60's song of Elvis Presley that you would want to hear again and again!

185 I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles 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!

186 Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin 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.

189 Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp
190 Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
191 Louie, Louie - The Kingsmen 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

192 You Can Call Me Al - Paul Simon You Can Call Me Al - Paul Simon
193 I'd Love to Change the World - Ten Years After I'd Love to Change the World - Ten Years After

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

194 Suzie Q - Creedence Clearwater Revival Suzie Q - Creedence Clearwater Revival
195 Green-Eyed Lady - Sugarloaf 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.

196 Ballroom Blitz - Sweet Ballroom Blitz - Sweet
197 Don't Stop Me Now - Queen 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

198 Telegraph Road - Dire Straits 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.
