Imagine is absolutely a rock song. That's John Lennon's genre. Just because you don't have to turn the amps up full blast to play it doesn't mean anything. Yes, there are slow rock songs.
What idiot made this list? Imagine is a rock song now apparently -_-. Also, how did Barracuda make it that high. Yea it has a nice riff, but the solo is HORRIBLE!
"Maybe, it's not to late, to learn how to love, and forget how to hate." This song should represent all hard rock / metal in the top ten.
You wanna make a rock list? Okay... at least put the cover song of the Grandfather of rock and roll on the list.V 10 Comments

Always been a great song and still is
Great song and excellent singing!
This deserves so much higher. - maarilynmaansonV 4 Comments
Perfection! "Pour some sugar on me in the name of love" why odes this song not get more recognition! The guitar, lyrics, the whole feel... Its genius and should be in the top 10
The best rock song I have ever heard! The guitar and lyrics is amazing! This song should be known more!
Totally should NOT be 80! I have no idea what you are on, no offense. this list is ridiculous!
Ok really this is getting quite REDICULOUS I don't know anyone who does not like this songV 5 Comments
How isn't this in at least the top 20? I love "Bohemian Rhapsody" so much, but this one can't be at 44. - maarilynmaanson
One of my favourate songs by Queen, it is always in my playlists.
I like king
One of the best song ever and the best by THE Beatles!
How does one wright such a meaningful song at such a young age?
Maybe not rock, but this song have beautiful melodies
This is the most covered song in history. There are over three thousand versions in more than a hundred different languages. Can you say that about any ACDC song?V 2 Comments
This song should be in the top 10. It is a rock classic, without this song and without chuck where would rock be today.V 2 Comments
I can't think of a song with a better crafted set of lyrics
How in the world is this only 69? This song is great, I've rare to met someone who doesn't love this song. Most of my friends and I can quote all of the lyrics.
I seriously can't understand
A sad song about the death of america, but a beautiful one. And due to its accuracy about the death of my beloved country it's my favorite song,
It's not a bad song. It's the history of rock n roll up until the 70's seen through the eyes of a regular manV 5 Comments
Head and shoulders above anything the Beatles wrote. I'll just let that sink in. For one, this is a 10 minute long INSTRUMENTAL! Most instrumentals don't keep me entertained for a couple of minutes. The drum track is harder than Tom Sawyer and YYZ combined. I can say to some of my friends, "Hey, you can play YYZ, but can you really play La Villa Strangiato? " The guitar performance is one of the best ever, by the most underrated guitarist ever, Alex Lifeson. The bass, as always when we are talking about Geddy Lee, is amazing.
This song is ' masterpiece. Rush COULD NOT HAVE DONE BETTER to make this song more dynamic. The high-hat, snare and kick drum rhythm shows that Neil Peart can do more with only a four piece kit (although he definitely had a bigger set-up) than most drummers can with an eight piece with 12 zildjian cymbals. Alex Lifeson brings this song to life with intense soloing backed by an elite rhythm section. I'm not even that huge of a Rush fan but I think this piece is incredible. Should be way higher.
Nine minutes of everything rock stands for and more.
This song is better than any rock song I've ever heard.V 1 Comment
Great classic. One of the staples of the generation and a great song to drive to
Slow ride should be in top 5. It's pure rock and roll, an epic sex and guitar journey.
You would think slow ride would be in top 50
Did you know the lead singer is John Williams' son?
(Composer of the music for Star Wars.)
Of course 'The Final Countdown' by Europe beat this out. Really?
A song which defined an era. Should be way up in the list
This should be top 10, awesome track that grabs me as soon as it starts
Why is this song so low?V 2 Comments
A great song! Should be higher on the list for sure
Amazing song. One of my favorites ever
Needs to move up
This should be # 1 by far
Love it! One of the best songs ever...
The original is the best
What a great song!
The fact that this masterpiece isn't even in the top 10 shows what is wrong with modern era
The boss is up there with Dylan and Lennon. This is his best song and best album. Top ten worthy.
Not Bruce's best but his most popular Should be number one
Just One competitor... Thunder RoadV 3 Comments

The best band ever... I love definitely leppard
Best band ever, nothing less of that.
Another great songV 1 Comment
12 string song of glory! This song is soft and so goodV 3 Comments
Nice to see Seger here. Man, he is a good and, I think, under appreciated songwriter. His songs have been covered by everyone from Metallica to Sheena Easton, and he himself has a great voice and backup band. One of the great performers of his generation.
Well written song that most all age groups can enjoy. Everyone has their own opinions & I respect all but Seger is ONE of the great singer/song writers of all time.
Saw their concert in Toronto last night, Aug 27th. WOW! 50 years later, at 73, John Kay Still has it. A true Rock & Roll experience.
One of my favorites
Best album of all time - Rumours. Simple.
Rumours one of the top 3 albums ever.
