Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 11

201 Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp
202 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.

209 Fade to Black - Metallica
210 Burnin for You - Blue Öyster Cult

Great song, should be a lot higher.

211 Stargazer - Rainbow

About time someone added this. Epic, very much reminds me of Led Zeppelin's Kashmir.

212 Wonderwall - Oasis
213 Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC

Why isn't this in the top 10? That intro and riff are very memorable and those 2 guitar solos are 2 of the best of all time

Come on 250, just listen to this early hard rocker, those 2 guitar solos are some of the best

214 Suzie Q - Creedence Clearwater Revival
215 You Really Got Me - The Kinks
216 Ballroom Blitz - Sweet
217 Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie

Why is this song not anywhere near the top 50 or even the top 25? The combination of David Bowie's stern seriousness that he doesn't always show with Freddie's unmatched vocals superior to almost any singer who has ever performed make this the greatest duet and collaboration of all time, and should put this song in the top 50 at least!

Um...hello how has no kind thought of this by now. It is the all time best classic rock duet of all time. There isn't even a contender. This song is simply outstanding. From the amazing drum solo to the jaw dropping lyrics-come on guys this should be WAYY higher on the list.

No. What's wrong with you people? Of course this should be higher...alongside a host of other Queen songs.

218 Don't Look Back in Anger - Oasis
219 With or Without You - U2

The best of all d songs in my life

220 The Song Remains the Same - Led Zeppelin

c mon this shouldn't be 75 at least top 50 -
