161 Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love - Van Halen
162 Blitzkrieg Bop - The Ramones

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

163 Send Me an Angel - Scorpions V 1 Comment
164 Maggie May - Rod Stewart

Such a great song, and Rod has such amazing voice.

165 Still In Love With You - Thin Lizzy
166 Good Vibrations - Beach Boys

If this is a real list and this is a real placing for this particular song, then all credibility is gone.

One of the best, and probably one of the only songs with a therimin

167 Heroes - David Bowie
168 Revolution - The Beatles
169 Shooting Star - Bad Company

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.

170 Dream Police - Cheap Trick V 1 Comment
171 Moonchild - Rory Gallagher

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

174 Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie

David Bowie's partially autobiographical winner is touching and at the same time sarcastic.

And should not be on this list..

176 Can't Let You Go - Rainbow
177 The Jack - AC/DC
178 Tiny Dancer - Elton John

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...
