Greatest of rock songs ever...
If you ask a group of people "what comes to mind when you think of the 80's? ", 4/10 people will say Bon Jovi.
Kid rock quote about Livin'On A Prayer from Bon Jovi When We Were Beautiful documentary, "There are songs which are great within a trend, and then, there are songs which become the trend"!

Not even a rock song.
Who even voted for him, he's got nothing to do with rock, its a joke come on really?
To all you people moaning that Michael Jackson is a pop artist, it's about the song not the artist. This song features a guitar riff and solo written and performed by Eddie Van Halen - possibly the most gifted guitarist at the time. This automatically brings it into the rock genre. You're all welcome ���"
Incredible song - IIBKV 21 Comments
Too many great songs to list but when I think of "80's" rock songs, Journey, regardless of which song it is, comes to mind. - SociallyxxDistorted

Iron maiden is one of the most prolific and best rock bands of all time. So many great songs so great live it definitely is an experience of a lifetime. The depth and meaning of their songs is just unbelievable. Dickinson one of the best vocalists of all time. You put that together with 3 extremely talented guitarists, the best bass player of all time and the most iconic drummer of all time and you have a truly religious musical experience that anyone can and will appreciate. UP THE IRONS FOREVER! LONG LIVE MAIDEN
Absolutely one of the most incredibly talented bands of all time. These guys played hard, fast and loud. Dickinson has one of the best voices in rock history, Steve Harris is the fastest bass guitarist of all time, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Janick Gers have riffs that never quick and Nicko on the drums never misses a beat. All this and they sing songs about literature - Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Flight of Icarus, The Charge of the Light Brigade in The Trooper. The sing from scripture in the Number of the Beast and the English Hymnal in Revelation. They tell stories that need to be told in Hallowed be Thy Name and Aces High singing about WW2 fighter pilots. They sing about history with Churchill's speech to the English people in WW2, one of the most powerful ever. This band can't be matched. Enough Said.
How the hell is this not number 1? This is probably the best song of all time! - ComaWhite21
Run to the hills was way betterV 4 Comments

All time favorite Whitesnake song
Best Lord solo ever
Whitesnake is a spectacular band. Here I Go Again is a rock classic with meaningful words and (of course) amazing music to go with it.
"Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
