221 Down Down - Status Quo Down Down - Status Quo
222 All Right Now - Free All Right Now - Free

One of the greatest guitar riffs.

Easily top ten, simple yet unique, great song, terrific chords, why top ten? look around when its played, everybody is tapping a foot or bobbin their head.

223 I Wanna Be Sedated - The Ramones I Wanna Be Sedated - The Ramones V 1 Comment
224 Filth In the Beauty - The Gazette
225 Search and Destroy - Iggy Pop and the Stooges Search and Destroy - Iggy Pop and the Stooges
226 It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll) - AC/DC 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

227 (I Just) Died in Your Arms - Cutting Crew (I Just) Died in Your Arms - Cutting Crew

This song is what I'll call the most criminally underrated song in the history of humankind. Look at the position its in - 286. God! People, if you haven't tried out this song yet, I recommend you do. I'll assure you that you'll love it. It has such a tune, it could change my whole attitude. Rock can create magical stuff and this has to be the best of it. - SytachiRed

Awesome song with great tune! As old as it is, it still rocks!

228 With a Little Help from My Friends - Joe Cocker With a Little Help from My Friends - Joe Cocker

It's hard to improve on the Beatles, but there is absolutely nothing else that sounds like this song...pure genius arrangement by Cocker.

This is a proper rock song when done by Cocker, too low on the list.

229 Jump - Van Halen Jump - Van Halen

Amazing song that defines rock music!

230 Fade to Black - Metallica Fade to Black - Metallica
231 Twilight Zone - Golden Earring Twilight Zone - Golden Earring
232 Let There Be Rock - AC/DC Let There Be Rock - AC/DC

The live version is way too epic, it made me fall in love with acdc and Angus.

233 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

Harrison & Clapton at their best!

I think it should be in the top the Beatles are great but when mark knofler,eric clapton,prince and tom petty was amazing

234 Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie

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

235 Supper's Ready - Genesis Supper's Ready - Genesis

The magnum opus of Genesis, the piece that, at its time, was the song that all progressive bands would try to get even a bit close to its overall greatness. It's a very long song, which takes some people off of it, but if you have the patience to listen to the whole build up and the climax, your life will change.
