Top 10 Best Rock AnthemsSongs that will forever be sung to inspire and pump us up!
Hard for this to be a universal "one size fits all" rock masterpiece due to the Detroit reference (not everyone is from Detroit).
Great song, anyway. Steve Perry is irreplaceable and Neal knows it. That explains the awkward face on Neal at the 2017 awards.
No one ever sounded better on vocals than Steve Perry in this classic!
Please We Will Rock you is way more worthy of number one.
Can be overplayed a LOT but nothing beats this. It's a CHAMPION song and it came from a CHAMPION BAND performed countless times by a champion man named Freddie Mercury. I don't know if anyone would ever be able to beat what awesomeness this song holds. Oh... And where's WE WILL ROCK YOU?! :/ the number one picked song is a LIE.
Should be higher... Freddie Mercury was the King (uh... Queen) of Rock Anthems... ever see the vids of "Queen" at live concerts? And where is "We Will Rock You"?
This is chanted all around the world, you must watch Queen live. They didn't just write songs they write anthems and epitomised crowd involvement
A proper rock anthem is a song that could be played at any event to pump up a crowd. I like many of the songs on this list, but only a few of them really meet that criteria. "Rock You" is the quintessential example. Also, there should *really* be some Boston and Styx here!
Everybody sings along when this masterpiece is being played.
This is one of the most famous songs on this list.
People know this song before they know KISS. It's the greatest rock and roll anthem ever made, should be on top in my opinion. The song is rock and roll, it makes everyone want to "rock and roll all night and party everyday"
This song is about rocking and rolling to rock and roll from the greatest rock band in history. How can it not be number 1?!
KISS is notorious for making epic rock anthems, but not even Beth or Detroit Rock City can top this song, easily the greatest rock and roll song ever written
This is top ten. For sure. Play it for any five year old and they get it.
This song is the best. How is this not number 1. Although it's weird that It's my life isn't on this list. I guess all the Bon Jovi fans chose this song.
Immortal 80's. All kudos in the world to AC/DC, Who, Queen, etc. as reliably good bands, but Bon Jovi knocked this song out the park.
The ultimate 80s anthem
Amazing bass in this awesome song. The Who's generation was simply amazing! I hope that people would vote this as number one!
The best I ve ever listened to Kurt is simply the best of the best, this song has started is a trendsetter, bringin a lot of kids back to rock from *** music, changed the scene of music and definitely deserves to be on the top. Nirvana is my All Time Greatest. Load upon Guns Brings your freinds...
This song deserves to be number one on this list for the huge effect it had on music and society, the intensity of the music and lyrics, and the catchiness of the tune. A brilliant song for sure!
I grew up to Journey and Queen, and other greats, but Peaked with smells like teen spirit.
People, for whatever reason, hated this song when it first came out. However, KISS didn't care, as Paul Stanley said, "KISS doesn't play by your rules", the band continued to play to song for years in a more heavy rock and roll version. This song should be higher up I think
If there is a real ROCK anthem, it's this song. No doubts, since it's all about rock'n'roll and can be used as an welcome song for someone, who is only learning about Rock'n'Roll world.
The most epic song ever. Everything perfect: riffs, drums, bass, vocals and cannons.
The single greatest rock anthem, nothing else even remotely comes close.
Awesome song. Almost everybody knows it or at least heard of it. Beautiful
Just a classic
I always feel like I should stand when this song plays.
This is a great high energy anthem rock song!
High energy anthem
"Don't let em tell ya that there's too much noise, they're to old to really understand", the culmination of Gene and Paul in lead vocals makes this song fantastic. The song is all most as catchy as rock and roll all nite. I think this song should be in the top ten spot at least
Free Bird is THE rock Anthem .. always will be ..
If you know it - a comment isn't necessary.
Millenials need to know what real rock is...the sounds of their parents
Another great song for some reason at the bottom?
Metallica's best anthem
The intro in itself speaks wonders. Then, you progress into one of the best heavy metal riffs of all time, with Axl Rose and his classic, one-of-a-kind sound. Then, the end is simply insane, with Axl screaming, Slash shredding, Duff rocking out, Izzy doing his thing, and then Steven beating the crap out of the drums. Easily #1.
Awesome anthem... Even better to see live than on the album...
The riff is unmistakable! This song started AC/DC's international careers and it was Bon Scott's greatest song! Amazing song!
My favorite song by AC/DC along with Let There Be Rock. Bon Scott had a truely unique voice and will be missed by millions around the world
Great song, full of High Voltage, old-school Rock and roll.
