Top Ten Songs That Don't Deserve to Be On the Worst Rock Songs of All Time List

Some of these songs are downright classics, and some just sound great. Nevertheless, people put these songs on a worst list for whatever reason.

The Top Ten

1 Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin

As it's often widely regarded as the Best, it obviously doesn't belong anywhere near the worst. - Billyv

You are certainly entitled to your opinion about the song. But to think that your opinion outweighs the vast majority who enjoy the song would be nonsensical. A valid argument can be made that there are better songs, but if you're arguing that this song belongs on the worst songs list you are mistaken. - Billyv

That guy made a big mistake putting one of the best songs EVER on the wrong list. he's trying to piss a lot of people off and I don't like it.

Bestpersonever sounds like a complete troll to me & probably everyone else too. I'm gonna keep thinking that kinda stuff 'til he straight up says what he didn't like about the track. As in, what technical issues did he hate about it? Because I can't find much...

If this was the worst rock song of all time, then why would it be no 2 on the list of best songs of all time?

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I would put most of these songs on a "best of" list. Every song from Nirvana's "Nevermind" is terrific. There's no way I'd ever vote for this on a "Worst Songs" list. - BKAllmighty

3 Highway To Hell - AC/DC

Great song I liked the lyrics

4 One - Metallica

It was a worst songs list not a best songs list, stupid! ! !

5 Aerials - System Of A Down
6 Bodies - Drowning Pool

Some hate this song, but it really is the most famous song they have, and will ever make. Had Dave Williams not died, they would have much more popular,. Give them the credit they deserve for having just one #1 hit for god's sake. - NuMetalManiak

7 B.Y.O.B. - System Of A Down
8 Headstrong - Trapt

I was shocked to see this in the Top 10. Like Drowning Pool, this is their biggest hit. - NuMetalManiak
