Songs to Hear Before You DieSo many songs have been made over the past century. So many, that it's practically impossible to hear all of them! Because of that, I've created a list of songs to hear before you kick the bucket.
The Top Ten
Led Zeppelin's biggest hit is also its longest, but today is know for its popular melody. Despite its length of nearly ten minutes, no other song has been played on the radio more than "Stairway; despite its commercial success, the song has never been released as a single.
This one gave birth to a new species in music
The Best Song I ever heard...got goosebumps...
If I could, I'd listen to this on my way to heaven. - astrosharkV 1 Comment
"Bohemian Rhapsody" is broken up into three main parts (ballad, opera, and rock), and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the top of the UK pop charts. It's daring, intense, and the must hear of the century.
I hear it everyday literally, my day is never complete without this song, such a beautiful voice and such amazing lyrics, I bet there is a better song than this very best song.
There is nothing like this song in the history of Music...!
...one of the truly great pieces of music from that era! I feel sorry for those who don't agree, because it means their minds are closed to older music...V 4 Comments
Nirvana's centerpiece of their album Nevermind got the "grunge" ball rolling.

A beautifully composed power ballad about a soldier who lost all of his senses from a landmine explosion. The song goes from a light beginning to an aggressive, heavy, machine-gun like guitar solo. Lyrics are very meaningful, and convey feelings such as pain and the desire to die. Guitar parts are awesome, especially the machine-gun like solo.
Favorite of all time
I know. It's a horrible song, but it's got 'die' in it.
Gives you the tingling sense that you are looking for a song. I don't trust anyone who hates this song.
Probably the most catchy pop song of all time.
This song is the one you must hear. Song of the century probably I would say.
My favorite Linkin Park song is Final Masquerade, but this song rocks nonetheless!
Amazing lyrics - just make sure to check out every song by Linking Park!

I have never heard this song before seeing it on this list and honestly I have found something to play as my graduation march
This should be number 1...
YES PLEASE, I love this song!
Paul McCartney wrote this song one morning in possibly late 1963 (Ringo Starr recalls Paul playing the song for him as early as January 1964), but recorded it in 1965. McCartney's legendary song has become the most covered song ever with over 3,000 versions recorded to date.
It's a purely amazing song, recorded in 1965, and is so sweet. Originally called "Scrambled Eggs" this song is the most covered song ever with thousands of versions. And, quick question, why isn't this song higher? It should be in the top ten! - kaitlynrad11
Beautiful song. I personally think it is written subconsciously about his late mother Mary who died when he was 14. The song express his grief of not being able to see his mum and how he reacted when told Mary had passed. RIP Mary, God Bless xx
It fits me now and then, perfectV 3 Comments
Awesome can not explain
This song is invincible
Originally titled "Hey Jules, " "Hey Jude was inspired by John Lennon's son, Julius. The name "Jude" was inspired by the character from Oklahoma.
"The lyrics and the simplicity of the composition are what makes this song etched in your memory."
You cannot have a better song than this. The epitome of phenomenal songwriting...

Although the Chili Peppers have numerous great songs, and Californication is up there, number one is certainly "Under the Bridge", which really captures their earlier, and more meaningful, type of music
This song is just awesome. The guitar thing at the beginning is to die for. It deserves to be at least in the top three's. Even though RHCP is not as famous as the beatles and zeppelin this song is undeniably the best
RHCP Suck.And This Song Sucks More Than Friday. RHCP Give Rock A Bad Name - 12cc
Don McLean's greatest hit is best known for being about "The Day the Music Died" when Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and "The Big Bopper" died on the same plane.
I love this song
This song carries you along on a journey that you know will end in a tragedy, regardless,you carry on eagerly awaiting and dreading the end at the same time.
NO. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, NO. NO one should hear this song before they die.
I reported this song so they can hopefully remove it. - ComaWhite21
The song u hear before you die
Hear this if you want to die - waldoV 6 Comments
"Satisfaction" is driven by a riff written by Keith Richards that would define rock music of the '60's. Its heaviness and lyrics make it arguably the first song to be classified a "rock" rather than "rock and roll. "
Our first US single on the list is the first rock and roll song about rock and roll fame. The lyrics turn out to be both fact and fiction about how Berry became a rock and roll star.
Immortal Technique is the best MC alive.
If you're really looking for listening to some deep music with less and meaningful lyrics, this is the best choice.
It's a must hear for everyone. I mean it. EVERYONE. The lyrics are simple and yet touching. Makes you think
Man this tells a story of a stan... A must hear song...
