121 Take It Easy - The Eagles V 1 Comment
122 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

Why is it back here

124 I Want to Break Free - Queen

125 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

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

One of the best opening guitar riffs


126 Ace of Spades - Motorhead
127 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)

128 Closer to the Heart - Rush

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

129 Welcome to the Machine - Pink Floyd
130 Carrie - Europe

Love the song, and great vocals by Joey

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

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 Sebastian - Cockney Rebel V 1 Comment
133 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.

134 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.

135 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
136 Nightmare - Michael Schenker Group
137 Stuck in the Middle with You - Stealers Wheel
138 London Calling - The Clash

I know, not classic rock, bla, bla, bla. This song is powerful and influential and top ten worthy.
