127 Wind of Change - Scorpions

This song is the second best classic rock song of all time ("Stairway to Heaven" is the greatest).

Great vocals. Calm but powerful. Can listen to it 100 times and will always sound great

This song is one of the best known songs in the world!
How come its not in the list? This should be right behind Stairway to Heaven

129 Ace of Spades - Motorhead
130 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

This song defiantly should be up there, A great song for sure

One of the best opening guitar riffs


131 Don't Bring Me Down - Electric Light Orchestra

This list is terrible, how is this not top 20

This is one of my favorite ELO songs. It's so addicting.

Should be in the top ten

132 Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf

This song should be much higher! - maarilynmaanson

Best song ever!

This, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Stairway To Heaven are the absolute untouchables in rock music in terms of creativity, storytelling, and above all composition. (Blackbird by Alter Bridge is a close-ish fourth is fourth for me :D)

133 Closer to the Heart - Rush

Best song ever written, I don't care what anyone says

137? That is outrageous. It deserves much higher. - maarilynmaanson

136 Blitzkrieg Bop - The Ramones

Come on you gotta be kidding! This song is a classic!

137 Sebastian - Cockney Rebel V 1 Comment
138 Coming Back to Life - Pink Floyd

I don't understand why this song is so underrated? I've never seen this song on any of the best rock song list. This is just injustice with gilmour and injustice with music. And about this song you just gotta be listen and then you only decide

This should be bet number 1 to 5, the best well composed emotional rock of all time

My number one Song. Should be in the top 5 at least.

It is a shame that this song is so underrated. It is a pity that it is usually missing in many best songs lists. Should be in top 10 of any list in my opinion.

PF rocks

139 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
140 Same Old Song and Dance - Aerosmith

This is a song that you can really sing or dance to. One of Aerosmith's best, without a doubt. Deserves more credit.
