Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 The Spirit of Radio - Rush
122 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.

123 Belladonna - UFO

This is the most under rated rock band of all time too bad the world hasn't been exposed to them enough.every song they've done should be here...Belladonna is a classic ballad much better then most song here If you haven't heard them get any of their first 7 albums

124 Voodoo Child - Jimi Hendrix V 1 Comment
125 Big City Nights - Scorpions

Least I can say is amazing! Love Scorpions!

126 Stiff Upper Lip - AC/DC V 1 Comment
127 The Trial - Pink Floyd
128 The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
129 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

136 Carrie - Europe

Love the song, and great vocals by Joey

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

137 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

138 Sebastian - Cockney Rebel V 1 Comment
139 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
