The Contenders: Page 17

321 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.

322 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?

323 Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen
324 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica
325 Green Grass & High Tides - The Outlaws

Another Great Southern Classic Rock Gem with more than 9 minutes of rocking goodness!

333 Please Forgive Me - Bryan Adams
334 Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac

Stevie Nicks composer vocals with Christine McVie electric keyboards and vocal and Lindsey Buckingham guitar vocals a masterpiece.

335 School's Out - Alice Cooper V 2 Comments
336 Hoedown - Emerson, Lake and Palmer
337 Stay the Night - Benjamin Orr

I fell in love with this song the first time hearing and I'm still in love with it. A beautiful song by a beautiful musician. How can anyone not love this song? It makes me so sad that Ben Orr died. So much talent and died too soon. He had an amazing voice and a face like it was carved out of angels. Just looking at him makes you feel so happy. RIP Benjamin Orr. You will be missed by many.

338 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!

339 Are You Ready for Me - Tommy Shaw

This is another amazing song that I'm practically in love with. Tommy Shaw is such an amazing but underrated musician. I love the whole Ambition album. This is definitely one of my favorite songs.

340 Mr. Tinkertrain - Ozzy Osbourne

This is definitely a favorite of mine. It has killer guitar riffs and is an awesome song. It even makes a good point- be careful in the real world. I don't care if it is about a pedophile. It's awesome!
