Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Stargazer - Rainbow

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

222 American Idiot

Green Day is 90s alternative. Not classic rock. - KyleDCrocodile

223 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

227 All the Young Dudes - Mott the Hoople
228 You Really Got Me - The Kinks
229 Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison V 1 Comment
230 Peace of Mind - Boston

Why is this amazing song not up there?!?

231 My Generation - The Who

First bass guitar solo. Some of the first use of feedback. Two chord guitar playing. Roger Daltrey's stutter. Keith Moon's crazy drumming. Rebellious lyrics. This song is more important than 95% of the songs above it.

The best opening, the best lyrics, the best bass fill, the best drumming, the best vocals.

The best 2 minute song ever

232 I Was Made for Lovin' You - Kiss

Best Rock Song Ever! Definitely top 10

238 Filth In the Beauty - The Gazette

240 It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll) - AC/DC

Guitars AND Bagpipes, the song that started it all

By FAR the greatest rock song of all time. It is a discrace to have it even out of the top 5. - dburt
