325 Money - Pink Floyd

This song shows so much musical talent. Not many bands can pull off 7/8 time signature.

The best riff for bass ever created, and it will most likely stay that way for a long, long, time. - Colin400

This should be ranked higher, it beats Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2 and Time by a lot in my book. The fact that 7/4 time signature was used until the guitar solo was pure genius.

326 Rock 'N Roll All Nite - Kiss

I am a proud kiss fan too! I am extremely disgruntled, and in fact baffled by how this list is set out. it is DISGUSTING!

I believe that this song is a true rock fans national anthem

Why isn't there more KISS!? One of the greatest bands of all time! Didn't put out a bad song, and always went hard

The rock anthem for the late 70's and into the 80's & even the 90's!

327 (You're The) Devil In Disguise - Elvis Presley

Even though this is a good rock song recorded by Elvis Presley during his later years (exactly in 1963), this song defines true rock music.

One of the great 60's song of Elvis Presley that you would want to hear again and again!

328 Barracuda - Heart

Heart needs to be inducted into the rock hall of fame. Why have they not yet been added? Seriously, you have Ann's crazy awesome voice and Nancy's amazing guitar skills... Need I say more?

Classic rock riff - how can you not include it!

HOW DOES THIS SONG AND THIS BAND NOT GET MORE RECOGNITION?! They are some of the hardest rocking women in the industry. Some of the first to rip a guitar! Come on man!

This song has so much passion and talent packed to the brim. I love it so much. - maarilynmaanson

329 Funeral for a Friend - Elton John

One of my favorite songs... I told my parent's if I die before they do; play it :-)

Great masterpiece for being a hit.

330 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

This raw emotion and the first real song to completely combat war and grasp the fullness of it

331 Midnight Rider - The Allman Brothers Band
332 Breakdown - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
333 Abracadabra - Steve Miller Band

This is a classic and one of my personal favorites. The studio version has sharper sounds than the live vesion but they're still not that different. And it's a song you can really get into.

334 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses

This is probably my favorite song. A bit sad to see that this is way down here. - Feirceraven

Great song just a straight kick ass song


Guns N' Roses is incredible (This, Rocket Queen, Chinese Democracy and Sweet child o'mine) but it ain't classic rock!

335 Foolin' - Def Leppard

Hate any song but this one. It's so sorry to say it does not get the most votes. But I vote for this one it's my best rock song ever. It should be the best if its on rock band 3. The best song ever, I still don't get why its not in the top ten. If this song wasn't a song I could not do much in my life. A cracking solo to

This song embodies the spirt of rock and roll what is there not to love

336 Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney V 1 Comment
337 For Those About to Rock - AC/DC

It Is a horrible boring song stating the same thing over and many times

It's a Rock Ballad. One of the Best and least heard of AC/DC!
Warning, High Voltage!

338 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

I'm not sure if this song would be classic rock since judas preist is more of a heavy metal band, but it is a masterpiece either way

339 You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi

Wow. I cannot believe this is at 250! Why isn't this at number 1. Come on! The top 50 at least!

340 Levon - Elton John

Elton John's piano playing is underrated in the face of rock and roll. It deserves to be rewarded.
