Greatest '80s Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Heaven - Bryan Adams

An amazing song from an incredible singer. I've listened to Journey for since I was little, and all of Bryan Adams songs remind me of Journey and how much I love both bands. I will never stop loving this song and singer.

42 Born In the USA - Bruce Springsteen
43 Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
44 Carrie - Europe

Underrated.. Maybe

Zbest balade ever

I've loved this song since I was 7 years old and I'm 18 right now ❤

45 Animal - Def Leppard
46 Alexander the Great - Iron Maiden
47 Balls to the Wall - Accept
48 Centerfold - The J. Geils Band

This song reminds me of the smurfs theme I mean come on I couldn't possibly be the only one who thinks that am I

49 I Ran (So Far Away) - a Flock of Seagulls
50 Games Without Frontiers - Peter Gabriel
51 Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi

Being too cool to like BJ is like having a shower in a rain coat! If you love rock then this band has everything. Probably one of the best selling bands of all time, and certainly one of the best live. This is their trademark anthem, real crowd puller! Maybe not No1 but certainly top 5!

Great song it's too bad the 80's was the greatest decade of rock ever, probably the toughest decade to judge.

A Masterpiece Bon Jovi Song I've Ever Listen!

52 Open Arms - Journey
53 Watch the Children Pray - Metal Church
54 Wild Side - Motley Crue

48 really people Motley Crue was the rock of the 80s
