241 Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac
242 Rod Stewart - Young Turks Rod Stewart - Young Turks
243 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
244 Blackbird - Alter Bridge Blackbird - Alter Bridge

The best rock song in the 21st century for sure, amazing vocals by myles kennedy and the solo is perfect, alter bridge is the new zeppelin in my opinion

The best song to come out of the rock genre in the 21st century. The fact I have to add this myself makes me sad.

245 Animal - Def Leppard
246 Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
247 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
248 You Really Got Me - Van Halen You Really Got Me - Van Halen
249 My Sharona - The Knack My Sharona - The Knack
250 Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys
251 Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC
252 Hunger Strike - Temple of the Dog Hunger Strike - Temple of the Dog
253 I Love Rock 'N Roll - Joan Jett & the Blackhearts I Love Rock 'N Roll - Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
254 Light My Fire - The Doors Light My Fire - The Doors

This song knocked the Beatles out of the number one spot and the Beatles are quite possibly the greatest band of all time. Pretty good for a first hit song.

This is definitely top ten worthy. The Doors are the most brilliant band of their time. Them and The Beatles are king. The Beatles pioneered music and then The Doors turned it upside down. Light My Fire was a massive hit and it is an amazing song. Long live Jim Morrison.

I fail to see how Know Your Enemy by Green Day is above this. Green Day isn't classic rock and they're only okay. The doors is classic rock and they're great. I'm not even a huge doors fan but I think this song should be up higher

It couldn't get much higher.

259 My Generation - The Who 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

260 Brown Sugar - The Rolling Stones Brown Sugar - The Rolling Stones
