The Contenders: Page 3

41 Paradise City

Really gets you into the song!

This one just gets better with time!

42 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

43 Jailbreak

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

46 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!


47 I Want It All - Queen
48 Kurenai - X Japan

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

49 The Zoo - Scorpions
50 Walk This Way V 1 Comment
51 Eruption / Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love - Van Halen V 1 Comment
52 My Generation - The Who

Probably the first hard rock song. - zxm

53 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).

54 You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
55 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

Beautiful no other words describe jimmy's vocals leading to an incredible solo that is very fast and cool

This song is amazing...
And the solo in this song is awesome... - a7xaresimplythebest

I love this song... Is my first Avenged Sevenfold's song ever hear!
Great guitar, great drum (rip the rev :( ), great voice!
Maybe this song can be overcome by bad country and gunslinger

It's a heavy metal song - zxm

58 Highway Star
59 Mr. Crowley

Oh, yes.. Ozzy Osbourne is hard rock, Sabbath is Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne should be in the top ten hard rock bands, and Mr. Crowley is his Best song that are the closest to hard rock!

60 Hot for the Teacher - Van Halen

No Van Halen song in the top list so sad.
