Greatest Classic Rock Songs

The Contenders: Page 16

301 Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

Best album of all time - Rumours. Simple.

Rumours one of the top 3 albums ever.

302 Sunshine of Your Love - Cream 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.

303 Nichts Ist FÜR Die Ewigkeit - Böhse Onkelz
304 Close to the Edge - Yes Close to the Edge - Yes V 3 Comments
305 Jim Dandy - Black Oak Arkansas Jim Dandy - Black Oak Arkansas
306 Year of the Cat - Al Stewart. Year of the Cat - Al Stewart. V 1 Comment
307 Stone Me Into the Groove - Atomic Swing

Many of you people that go all the way down the list are looking for something new. Well now you have it. An underground song from an underground band from an underground music scene is Sweden. The point is... THAT THIS SONG ROCKS! I'm not joking, as it has a perfect blend of everything, from Psychedelia to Glam to Grunge to Zappa to Pop to Folk and back to Psychedelia... plus many more on the way. This is also not their only good song, as others, such as the Flasher are also great, but either way, check this song out! You won't be disappointed!

308 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace Never Too Late - Three Days Grace
309 Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin
310 Rock Candy - Montrose 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!

311 Wipeout - The Surfaris Wipeout - The Surfaris
312 Big Log - Robert Plant Big Log - Robert Plant

The SONG of my LIFE!
HATS OFF to the guitar work by Robbie Blunt and Robert Plant's Voice. No Words to describe the beauty of this song.

313 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

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

314 Creeping Death - Metallica Creeping Death - Metallica
315 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica
316 The Black Widow - Alice Cooper The Black Widow - Alice Cooper

A classic hit by the king of shock rock. And it has an amazing introduction by Vincent Price, one of the most iconic actors to ever live.R.I.P. Vincent Price. We will miss you.

317 Rain on the Scarecrow - John Mellencamp Rain on the Scarecrow - John Mellencamp

One of the songs that's based on his own life and my personal favorite. It's a song people can really relate to and it has great tunes to it. How is it not a classic?

318 Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen
319 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica
320 Green Grass & High Tides - The Outlaws Green Grass & High Tides - The Outlaws
