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
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.
? There are 100 songs ranked above this that make no sense being there.
This beats every song currently on the list, along with Dazed and Confused
One of the best riffs of all time
What is wrong with people, this is obviously top 10.V 2 Comments
It's an amazing song with great sounding guitars and vocals, one of the all time greatest
Once you hear Heart, you become addicted to their amazing sound. - maarilynmaanson
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!
Greatest song ever by Pink Floyd... Love it! !
4 notes have never sounded so powerful and eery. Gilmour rules!
A little piece of what The Music should be.
One of the signature songs from the greatest bands of them allV 2 Comments
This is my favorite aerosmith song
Should be a lot higher
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
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.
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
I fell in love with this song. Everything about this song is crafted masterfully. How isn't this in at least the top 15? - maarilynmaanson
One year in school we had to write lyrics to a songs and it had to be about the human body, but it had to be to the toon of a song, and I chose this one.
This is brain control to spinal cord
Am I connected to the brain
Far above the neck
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 -_-V 2 Comments
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.
Number 228?! This song is a masterpiece!
This song should be in the top 5
This is the one..
That voice and electronic sound.. should be in top 50V 1 Comment
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!
76? I love this song infinitely. This one, too, shows what rock & roll is all about? - maarilynmaanson
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.
Why is this not at nr. one? It expresses great feelings in the screaming part and the guitar part is just incredibly cool! - theinvidual
The best song ever heard. The guitar solo is fantastik, and everything is perfect. Number one across the nation!
A truly masterpiece - Deep Purples finest work, if you ask me.
Great deep cut selection. If this song were better known, it would be higher up.V 1 Comment
Along with Nilsson, the most underestimated artist of the last 50 years. The lyrics are wonderful, the vocals sublime and the sax chorus never bettered
Yes! I was wondering where this song was. Top 50 at least. This song just ROCKS!
Definitely should be top 20! One of the best written tunes of all time!
One of the real greats that get overlooked!V 4 Comments
