287 Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones
288 Renegade - Styx V 1 Comment
289 Cat Scratch Fever - Ted Nugent

Hard rocking balls to the wall song that should be in the top ten.

290 Sunshine of Your Love - Cream

This song's heavy psychedelic riff got me into rock music when I was a child. It also got me into this band. This song was ahead of its time, being released in May of 1967. This band, especially this song, influenced heavy metal bands, such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.

What is wrong with this list?!?! This song has one of the most killer and badass riffs in music history and is creams best song. Why is this so low. This should be in the top 20 for sure.

291 Close to the Edge - Yes V 3 Comments
292 Rock Candy - Montrose

Is there any classic guitar riff that has the thunder and grit of Rock Candy? Read the Sammy Hagar bio - despite all those tremendous years with Van Halen and as a solo artist, when other Hall of Fame rockers jam with Sammy, he says they all ask to play ROCK CANDY first! Montrose was too short lived as a band, but one of the greatest and most underrated bands of all time!

293 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica
294 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica
295 Hangar 18 - Megadeth
296 Ticket to Ride - Beatles

I'm not a particular fan of this one but the songs it currently sits behind is embarrassing.

297 School's Out - Alice Cooper

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is the first song of Alice Cooper's I've seen on this list. How is this so low? Where "I'm Eighteen" or "Billion Dollar Babies? " - maarilynmaanson

Why is this so low!?!?!


298 Hello Again - The Cars

This is, without a doubt, one of their best hits. I love this song so much. I could hear it again and again. Even the music video isn't that bad. The first time watching the official music video, I watched it about three times in one day. The Cars ROCK! Such a great band and not enough recognition. I wish Benjamin Orr was still here. He was so awesome; the rest of the band are awesome too. CARS FOREVER!

299 No Such Thing - Tommy Shaw
300 Song 2 - Blur
