Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 16

301 Ticket to Ride - Beatles

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

302 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!?!?!


303 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!

304 No Such Thing - Tommy Shaw
305 Song 2 - Blur
306 Zombie - The Cranberries
307 Right Now - Van Halen

This song is simply amazing. When the intro comes on you can tell that this one is going to be a good one. The dramatic piano solo into the amazing lyrics to the peppy piano solo is just outstanding. This should definitely be number 1 no contest

Would have loved to see Hagar do more with Van Halen, they were great together.

308 Tears Are Falling - Kiss
309 Take It Off - Kiss
310 Always - Bon Jovi V 1 Comment

312 Great Balls of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis
313 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
314 Magic Man - Heart
315 I'm Your Captain (Closer to Home) - Grand Funk Railroad
316 Life In the Fast Lane - Eagles
317 Mississippi Queen - Mountain
318 Changes - David Bowie
319 Somebody to Love - Jefferson Airplane
320 In Memory of Elizabeth Reed - The Allman Brothers Band

Probably in the top 5 performances of guitar as an instrument, if not number 1, period. So good.

So hard to pick a number one but this one was my first of many favorites by the ABB and has to go top five of all time by any group.
