#34? Should be in the top 3

One of best sonvs of best rock bands...ever

This one is too low
Not the best hard rock song, but definitely not 74th
And there are lots of songs on this list which are not hard rock - Rocker00

23 November Rain - Guns N Roses

21! Can't believe my eyes I searched it just to see this song in top ten. Its an aammmazing song axl on piano with soulfull vocal and slash's guitar... I can't express my fellings for the song. You can say this song is my turning point in piano and singing carrie just love this song. The is also very beautifull with a preety bride and handsome groom...

24 Another Brick In The Wall
25 How You Remind Me - Nickelback

How you remind me is an amazing song. Chad can sing anything and it will still have meaning to it.

Best song every... You can never get too much of this song... Chad's voice is the very soul of hard rock

This song is amazing!

Sad, Nickleback is in front of Led Zeppelin

26 Another One Bites the Dust
27 Highway To Hell

When I think of a hard rock riff that I want to play in my head, its always this one. Its just THE classic riff. And if you crank up the opening bars, I defy anyone hearing it not to get a buzz through their bones.

Best song of all time - shatti

CRAZY FEELING !! - shatti

Hardest rock!

Best hard rock song ever!

Love dis song first song I heard from MJ EVER! 1 - jigo

29 Pour Some Sugar On Me

This song doesn't need any reason to be on One. And for god's sake Metallica is NOT a hard Rock Band.

Bands like bon jovi are simply overrated

30 Civil War - Guns N' Roses

This songs kicks a$$. While no song will ever hit me as a permanent "#1" (it changes depending on mood, etc) this song is right up there. Good beats, riffs, and a good message about some of the darker aspects of war...

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

Gotta be on the top 5 of their best song. Rick on AC/DC

32 All Along the Watchtower
33 Baba O'Riley - The Who

I both agree and disagree with somekindo fag uy. Yes it has some classical part. But it's hard rock too. Hard rock is a slower and harder version of average rock music. This song has some distorted power-chord riffs. And the drum beats are also hard rock. The drumming features rapid uses of crash cymbal. It usually indicates of hard rock. John Bonham for example. - zxm

Nope, it's not hard rock. Hard Rock isn't based on classical, but this song totally is. It's art rock! - somekindofaguy

34 Barracuda - Heart

This song is essential of hard rock, and also rock n' roll. In my opinion it deserves to 1st place, but in top 5 it have to be.

Great song for a great band, Wilson sister will be in top 10

Kick ass rock song in every way. What's missing?

35 Burn It to the Ground

Just listen to it.

36 Bringin' on the Heartbreak - Def Leppard
37 Paranoid - Black Sabbath
38 Dr. Feelgood - Mötley Crüe

Classic kick arse track along with kickstart my heart.

39 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent

The top 10, besides the first two, should be renamed the most overrated rock songs of all time. THIS is a rock song. It starts with a killer riff, moves to two verses, then we get a classic Uncle Ted solo that builds to the final verse.

40 Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood
