Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty

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!

Brilliant track, one of his all time best

My favorite song of Kiss :3 I love Love gun

Dude,your kidding me.Kiss is an insane awesome band and "Love Gun" is a great song.Seriously, what retard put "Love Gun" at 105.

103 Urgent - Foreigner

Should be much higher. That sax solo is magnificent, and is so high pitched on a tenor, wow, As a sax player for years, this is a big, great song

Best use of sax since Baker Street. The song just oozes raw lust!

104 The Chain - Fleetwood Mac

How can this be so low?
Best song ever!

105 Jump Into the Fire - Harry Nilsson

By no means the best Nilsson song, but I will always back Harry.

106 Burn - Deep Purple

Forgotten song one of their best. Best of this lineup.

107 T.N.T. - AC/DC

Ac dc are the kings of rock and no other band comes close

No one else can make a song as badass as this one

Bon Scott era classic, this gets me fired up.

108 Round and Round - Ratt
109 Lay It On the Line - Triumph

Needs to be higher

110 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

What is this song doing all the way down here? Should be at least in the top 20.

Guys, how can this song be missed- quite surprising! Should be figured in the list of top five songs ever..

Get this higher. What a crime to be 86.

112 Radar Love - Golden Earring

This is one of the best bands ever, I still love this band, radar love is a great song but twilight zone and when the lady smiles are also good

I think this should have been on the list of great driving songs! It is a classic still to this day! -G.

113 YYZ - Rush

YYZ is a masterpiece without lyrics. It deserves to be on this list. The amazing instrumentalists really stood up on this song.

115 The Spirit of Radio - Rush
116 The Show Must Go On - Queen

This song should be higher than 92. It is the most dramatic, incredible, strong sounding song I've ever heard. They recorded this song when Freddie could barely walk!

Amazing song and vocals. Very emotional, too. - Metal_Treasure

Simply superb.

117 The End - The Doors

One of The Door's best songs. It has a very haunting melody and will leave you with an aura of peace.
