The Contenders: Page 7

121 Stiff Upper Lip - AC/DC V 1 Comment
122 The Trial - Pink Floyd
123 The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
124 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 Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf

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)

136 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.

137 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.

138 Love Gun - Kiss

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.

139 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
140 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.
