Greatest Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Songs

The Top Ten

1 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

One of the greatest hard rock songs of all time. At the end of the song it gets heavier. From the solo the song shows its most creativity and continues till end - zxm

2 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
3 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
4 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple

Yes, it's a great HARD ROCK song!

6 Back in Black - AC/DC
7 Peace Sells - Megadeth
8 Baba O'Riley - The Who
9 The Trooper - Iron Maiden
10 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Good song, but It's actually thrash metal. And thrash metal is different from heavy metal. - zxm

The Contenders

11 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
12 Light My Fire - The Doors

This song is not really hard rock. it has some heavy parts. but ultimately it's psych rock - zxm

13 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

THE version is from "Live" album (1970), with wolfie-looking' Malamute on cover. Heavy, indeed.
