61 Wind of Change - Scorpions Wind of Change - Scorpions
62 Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi 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.

Dude u are so absolutely positively 1000 percent correct who doesn't like Bon jovi this is a great song by them or him or whatever

63 Any Way You Want It - Journey Any Way You Want It - Journey

Once again journey u have made another amazing song. Considering this is one of journeys top 3 songs

64 I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight - Cutting Crew

Hi whoever compiled this list. This is The Cutting Crew. Whitesnake NEVER recorded this song. EVER. Other than this glaring error? Nice list.

65 For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC

How is this song so low in the poll? This should easily be top 10! come on people this is a anthem for any rocker that has to be cracked up as soon as it starts. FIRE!

78 Burnin for You - Blue Oyster Cult Burnin for You - Blue Oyster Cult

Blue Oyster Cult Rules! What Rock was always meant to be! I never get tired of listening to their Music.. Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma and the rest of the Oyster Boys Thanks for the Good times and what you have added to my life!

Any songwriter would tell you this a helluva song. Lightness, heaviness, change of beat and a great unforgettable hook.

This is a great song one of my favorites it's so greatly made. I can easily understand why top gun uses it as it's theme song for its show after listening to it
