61 What About Love? - Heart
62 Surrender - Cheap Trick

Mommy's all right! daddy's all right! They just seem a little weird!

You can NOT get tired of this song. - FearlessFreep

You can never get tired of this song.

63 Help! - The Beatles

The stereo version of this song is Amazing unlike the stage version, so just give it a try.

64 (Don't Fear) the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult

Classic! Classic! Classic! You can t denied it... I am a fan of classic rock and this is by far one of the best ever in the genre. I think the name of the band doesn t help people to remember it.

Guys just listen to this song and aim sure you all will change your opinion.. This song deserves to be in top 5 position...

This song is simply perfect and beautiful. Timeless classic. Top classic rock song in my opinion.

This song hurts my head

65 White Room - Cream

I kind of like Clapton when he's mellow and bluesy. White Room is an awesome song, though.

Eric Clapton was better before he went all mellow with Layla. His craziest guitar is on this track by Cream.

This needs more votes! Bloody brilliant number!

The source of inspiration for many groups that followed

66 Know Your Enemy - Green Day

Know Your Enemy isn't classic, but Green Day has written many songs that are. Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Good Riddance, Jesus of Suburbia, Longview, Wake Me Up When September Ends, 21Guns, etc

Know Your Enemy? It's a great song but its not classic

I feel like this list should be a list for classic rock'n'roll bands that have really went all out for a certain song, Green Day isn't really a legendary band. Even their fans know that, I don't feel like this song should be on the list because Green Day isn't a really great band.

Full of energy...

67 American Pie - Don McLean

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

Possibly my favorite song - ledzeppelin

I guess people just don't know if it's rock or more folksy so they aren't voting it, but this song is amazing even if it's not rock

68 Any Way You Want It - Journey

This is on my top 3 list of Journey songs. The fact that it's very overdone doesn't change the fact that it's awesome

69 Dreams - Van Halen
70 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

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.

71 Dogs - Pink Floyd

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 Floyd

72 Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd

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.

73 One - Metallica

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.

74 Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress) - The Hollies
75 Spanish Castle Magic - Jimi Hendrix Experience
76 Cum on Feel the Noize - Quiet Riot

Yes, this is a masterpiece - just to remind you that this is a cover song and the original is performed by a very underrated band - Slade. - Metal_Treasure

Oh come on, (feel the noize! ) This song is a masterpiece!

77 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

This song is awesome! Really needs to be higher.

Best riff ever and the voice of Robert Plant sounding a capella is outstanding.

78 Something - The Beatles V 1 Comment
79 Panama - Van Halen

Eddie delivered some of the best guitar riffs I've ever heard in this song.

80 Rock the Casbah - The Clash

I would've thought that this song would be higher. It's on my top 10 list of songs.
