62 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

I don't belong here
We gotta move on dear
Escape from this afterlife

63 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill going round
Guess I'll always be a soldier of fortune - Metal_Treasure

64 American Pie - Don McLean

Come on... How is this not on the list yet!

Not even a debate. - naFrovivuS

65 One - Metallica

Hardcore and quotes a book. How is this not higher

66 Thunderstruck - AC/DC
67 The Trees - Rush
68 The End - The Doors

Yes son?
I want to kill you!
I want to..."
These may be the most controversial lyrics in rock music history.

Hats off jim... You r legend

I miss Jim

69 My Ashes - Porcupine Tree
70 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden
71 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
72 The Message from Dr. Light - The Megas
73 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

Amazing song with outstanding lyrics representing both the storyline and The state of America. Truly a rock epic almost to the likes of songs like dream on and free bird

74 The Ghost of You - My Chemical Romance

It takes a lot to produce a song so beautiful and captivating in the rock genre. This song is a lovely tribute to WWI veterans and My Chemical Romance brought me to tears with this one. They performed with such conviction, and they couldn't have done better.

75 Man Machine - Robbie Williams
76 Blackbird - Alter

"The willow it weeps today
The breeze from the distance is calling your name
Unfurl your dark wings and wait
Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away..."

77 Don't Cry - Guns N Roses
78 Aerials - System of a Down
79 Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
80 Vicarious - Tool
