This song is the greatest rock song of all time. The fact that it is so low on the list is disappointing. Bob Dylan is one the most underrated artists of al time, but he is the greatest songwriter of all time
WHAT THE HELL!?! THE MOTHER OF ALL ROCK SONGS AT SUCH A LOWLY POSITION! SHAME ON ALL OF YOU! Stairway of heaven is the only other worthy opponent
Bob Dylan at 67? Could think of a few others of his that could be in here too. Great song, great crescendo.
Totally agree with other comments about placing, top 2 at least. Also must champion my personal favourite idiot wind, which is sublime.V 3 Comments
The best song ever. This along with echoes kills stairway to heaven.
The rhythm transitions and the solos are marvelous; plus the lyrics are profound.. Long live Pink FloydV 2 Comments
Just one of my favorites. A lot of feeling in this song and we all have some memories of role models in our life that influenced us...
It's a powerful song. You cannot be thinking about anything but the lyrics while this song plays.V 1 Comment
Beautiful song. I soldier who lost his arms, legs, and lungs due to a land mine and is aware of his condition but is unable to do anything because he can't speak nor move just waiting for death.
Metallica never fails to please with yet another great piece with insane guitar.
This song is awesome! Really needs to be higher.
Best riff ever and the voice of Robert Plant sounding a capella is outstanding.
Eddie delivered some of the best guitar riffs I've ever heard in this song.
I would've thought that this song would be higher. It's on my top 10 list of songs.V 1 Comment
This song is top ten worthy. Meaningful lyrics and one of the greatest guitar solos ever. what is it doing at 274? Guns and Roses kept classic rock alive when people everywhere were abandoning it for nirvana.
This guitar solo always makes me go nuts, its brilliant
No one can do a song in short time just like this
Are you joking? Sweet child o mine must be top 6! Half of these are folk and blues sweet child o mine is rock at its best.V 5 Comments
My all time favorite song since I was a teen. Better press, and marketing would have this song in the top ten of just about everyone. Take a listen, relax and enjoy the trip.
One of the best songs ever. Justin Hayward, beautiful voice. Song should be in the top five.
Awesome song! Listened to it recently in the movie Dark Shadows
The Moody Blues were so far ahead of their time. This song endures the test of time.
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.
This song is great the riff is amazing I don't know how it's not even in the top 20V 9 Comments
It's an amazing song with great sounding guitars and vocals, one of the all time greatest
The best voice in rock history is Ann Wilson
Needs to be WAY higher up! One of the most iconic themes ever made in the history of mankind. Easily deserves a top 5 spot. In my opinion, it is the most recognizable rock song made.
This should be top 5, no doubt! Incredible solo, incredibly historical, incredible premise. In my opinion, it is like a sung future. Also, Eye of the Tiger by Survivor should be up in top 5.
Come on it should at least be in the top ten, I mean it has a cool beat awesome music video, and great band too
This song gets me fired up, although it's a cheesy song, it's a classic and I Love it.V 5 Comments
This song is great. This song was released around the autumn of 1971, and this song was very popular in the States at the time. This song is the reason why Yes became very popular in the States.
One of my favorite songs this is a classic!
