Greatest Hard Rock Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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.

42 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
43 You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
44 Black Night - Deep Purple

Seriously not 17

45 Kashmir

The vocals are amazing, the riff is amazing, and the song is one of the more complex songs by Led Zeppelin. It takes you yo a far-off land, way better than SLTS.

The best hard rock song of all time.

This song Is definitely what the MLB in the 70's was all about

46 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed

Is there another list "Heavy Metal"? Then this is there Number one. Perhaps a lots don't know the name of the band: Disturbed. Hear it and choose it.

This song in particular, like much of Disturbed, just makes me want to beautifully smash things.

Listen to this song once a month, and you'll never need a doctor


47 Paradise City

Really gets you into the song!

This one just gets better with time!

48 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

Partial hard rock. The first strumming of this song was hard rock, but the faster those become, more punk it became. - zxm

49 Dark Side of the Moon

Such a geat hard rock song I have it on my runing playlist good for exiting the nerves

50 Jailbreak

Another really good AC/DC tune, should be in top 30

51 The Trooper

Awesome riffs! Love the guitar playing and the lyrics as well. The starting parts soung like something out of a video game! How the hell does he play that fast!? AwESomE!

52 Hells Bells

hell bell has got really cool rock (drums, guitar & bass) - harry21

What is this!

Are we voting for Hard Rock or what! Hells Bells is on Number "40". I can't believe my eyes!


53 I Want It All - Queen
54 Kurenai - X Japan

This is unbelievably awesome song. Everyone should listen to it with knowing the meaning of lyrics. Great solo and vocals.

55 The Zoo - Scorpions
56 Walk This Way

What the heck is this song doing in <100? Should be at least top 20!

57 Eruption / Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love - Van Halen


58 My Generation - The Who

Probably the first hard rock song. - zxm

59 Child In Time - Deep Purple

Most beautiful and sad piece of music I have ever heard. Just listen to Ian Gillan and his magical and operatic voice paired with excellent solos from Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord.

This song is tied with Led Zeppelin's Achilles Last Stand. Its got great vocals and an intense composition. Deep Purple is underrated, they have other good songs than Smoke on the Water

Another gem from Deep Purple. This band is at least for me the best hard rock band, no Led Zeppelin (they are too soft).

60 Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
