234 Filth In the Beauty - The Gazette
235 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

236 (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!

237 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

I like the funk, but the vocals give me heartburn - ryanrimmel

238 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

Harrison & Clapton at their best!

Okay. How the hell is this beautiful song so low? - maarilynmaanson

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

239 Thriller - Michael Jackson

I'm not much for Michael Jackson, but I love this song. It's a good song, it's got a nice beat and a really cool voice-over by horror legend Vincent Price.

Not a Michael Jackson fan at all but I have to admit

240 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.
