301 Spread Your Wings - Queen

Just listen to "Spread Your Wings - 1977 BBC Session" and you wil have goosebumps when the song is over! Best song ever!

#233? You're having a laugh. Top 50 would be a travesty.

Seriously underrated, very emotional.

Just listen to "Spread Your Wings - 1977 BBC Session", and you'll have goosbumps when the song is over!

302 Bed of Roses - Bon Jovi

Better you put this song on ranking 15

303 Renegade - Styx V 1 Comment
304 Khe Sanh - Cold Chisel V 1 Comment
305 Cat Scratch Fever - Ted Nugent

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

306 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

Wow... I just realized it's the first song of U2 in the list... really? Are they so bad to be not even on the 200 list?

307 Starman - David Bowie V 2 Comments
308 Moonage Daydream - David Bowie V 2 Comments
309 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.

310 Nichts Ist FÜR Die Ewigkeit - Böhse Onkelz
311 Close to the Edge - Yes V 3 Comments
312 Jim Dandy - Black Oak Arkansas
313 Year of the Cat - Al Stewart. V 1 Comment
314 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!

315 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace
316 Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin
317 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!

318 Wipeout - The Surfaris
319 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.

320 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

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