Greatest Classic Rock Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin V 1 Comment
82 Free Fallin - Tom Petty
83 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.

84 Rocket Man - Elton John

Top 25

85 Nights in White Satin - The Moody Blues

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.

86 Smokin' - Boston
87 Crazy on You - Heart

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

88 Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf

One of my favorites

Great song.

89 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

This beats every song currently on the list, along with Dazed and Confused

? There are 100 songs ranked above this that make no sense being there.

One of the best riffs of all time

What is wrong with people, this is obviously top 10.

90 Roundabout - Yes

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!

91 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

Greatest song ever by Pink Floyd... Love it! !

4 notes have never sounded so powerful and eery. Gilmour rules!

Greatest song of all time. Nothing, but nothing beats it.

One of the signature songs from the greatest bands of them all

92 Walk This Way - Aerosmith

This is my favorite aerosmith song

Nothing more needs to be said other than it will always instantly transport a generation that went to High School in the mid 1970's back in time! -G.

Why Aerosmith are so underrated?
They're one of the greatest hard rock bands and there are only two of their songs in the top 100
People vote for their favourite song, not for the best one - Rocker00

93 Space Oddity - David Bowie

Are you kidding me? This isn't even on the list? What a joke.

This should be top ten! It's beautiful, chilling, and mysterious and very memorable. List should also include Bang a Gong by T. Rex, Walk on the Wild Side by Lou Reed, and have London Calling higher

94 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits

Why it 97 is beyond me. Should be number 1.

Why is this #73? Mark Knofler is so underrated.

This song will never be old. A Mark Knopfler masterpiece. An unforgetable and beautiful solo that will be forever onthe greats rocknroll moments.

95 Aqualung - Jethro Tull

It's a pity this is the only song anyone ever remembers by this brilliant individual. Locomotive Breath and Cross-eyed Mary were its equal easily, not to mention the entire "Songs from the Wood" album.

96 Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones

Do I Ryan need to explain why this song needs to be ranked higher? One of the best songs to ever capture the feel of the Vietnam war era angst without ever saying that's what it was. It applies to every tragedy. One of the best songs ever released. Lets vote it up there.

70?. That's a crime! Top ten worthy and at very least, beats American Pie.

In my humble opinion this is the best Rolling Stones song and they had a lot of great ones!

HOW IS THIS 96?!? This is the GREATEST song by the GREATEST band of all time and it's at 96?!?! Geez

97 Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams

I love this song! I thought it would be in the top 25 at least! I mean I like a lot of other rock songs but I shouldn't have to turn the page to find this. I hope more people start recognizing rock because I feel as though its beginning to be less popular.

Although there are many more better rock songs than summer of 69, I will vote this cause the real rock songs are not displaying. Please listen to the songs of sum 41. You will call them real rock songs

It took 171 songs to finally break my heart. My sincerest apologies to Bryan Adams. Logging off now. Over and out.

What this should be in the top 20 at least! 176? This shows our generation has no taste in music -_-

98 Alone - Heart
99 No Sugar Tonight - The Guess Who

Yes! It's nice to see the Guess Who getting some love. One of my favorite bands from the 60s and more influential than you might think.

100 Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

Best album of all time - Rumours. Simple.

Rumours one of the top 3 albums ever.
