Why isn't this higher on the list? This is a great song that tells a story about a boy who runs away from home to be in a rock'n'roll band, succeeds, and then is killed by alcohol. It has very powerful lyrics, And a great band to back it up, What more could you want out of a song?
This is a great song from their album Straight Shooter. Paul Rodgers gives his usual great vocal.
One. great guitarist I his day.
And I got to shake his hand after the concert.
Gallagher seemed like a nice guy.
Really amazing song of UFO, especially the studio tune in Peppermint of 2005
This song is beautiful, & it should be much, much higher. - maarilynmaanson
So I was at this tiny bar in Malaysia, and a band was playing. Some local girl came on stage, asked the band to play this song, and she sang. Best live performance I've ever heard in my life.
This song is top ten worthy. Meaningful lyrics and one of the greatest guitar solos ever. what is it doing at 274? Guns and Roses kept classic rock alive when people everywhere were abandoning it for nirvana.
THIS IS THE BEST SONG EVER! Everything about this song is awesome! The lyrics, the intro, the solo and I just love the "where do we go now" part! I can't believe it's not in the top 10!
How the hell is this not at least in the top 20s? This has to be one of my favorite songs of all time.V 10 Comments
David Bowie's partially autobiographical winner is touching and at the same time sarcastic.
And should not be on this list..
For all of you that are Lord of the Rings fans, just listen to this song closely, even look up the lyrics & then when it was written. You will get a kick...
This song is amazing. I love this song too much. - maarilynmaanson
