86 Dead or Alive

greatest acoustic rock song of all time - richie4life

87 Shout At the Devil

You have to have Motley Crue is here somewhere just because of their no-nonsense musical approach and big personalities. Plus Mick's riffs are pretty straightforward and fun to follow.

92 It's So Easy

Awesome drumming by Steven Adler
Amazing vocals by Axl Rose
Mind-raping guitar solo by Slash
Cool bass by Duff McKagan
Outstanding rhythm work by Izzy Stradlin

93 Show Must Go On

Simply one of the most inspirational songs I've ever heard

94 Heaven and Hell
95 Over the Hills and Far Away

I don't like some of the lyrics 'friends' wife' but the rest of it is fantastic.

96 Bullet With A Name
97 Heaven
98 Drink It Down
99 Stargazer - Rainbow

Rainbow is criminally unappreciated. This song is tied with Gates of Babylon for Rainbow's best song, and is one of the greatest, most important, and influential songs of all time. Without this song, there would likely be no power metal as we know it, not to mention many of the great epic metal tracks that followed it.

100 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath
