The Top Ten

1 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan Cover Art

It doesn't matter how many decades it has been since this song came out. It always makes me stop, listen, sing along, and yearn for those days. It's a place and time as well as a song.

This song if a movement of its own.

Arguably the best anthem ever written or performed.

This song deserves to be the #1 song of all time

2 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Cover Art

Hands down, best song ever written and performed.

Its definitely the most Best Song ever

Best song ever. Much more creative and complex song, than Dylan's "Like a rolling stone".

The most amazing thing in music history...

3 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones Cover Art

The cornerstone for rock music

A Immortal Classic.

4 Imagine - John Lennon Imagine - John Lennon Cover Art

Within this song, he captured everything that music is supposed to do. Make you think, make you smile, make you cry, and of course relate it to yourself in some kind of way. Imagine- Music evokes Imagination.. Truly amazing. RIP John

Are you smoking crack! You think Dillon is better the Lennon? Put your pipe down, imagine is hands down the most influential song of all time

Its helped us from Lennon's death to 9/11.

Best song.. If you do like that you will get result.

5 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Cover Art

Best Guitar Solo in the World...

Best guitar solo ever

Perfect band. Perfect song. Perfect vote.

I'm 60 and this song is one of the greatest

7 Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry Cover Art

Some of the best guitar I've ever heard, one of the best guitarist ever in fact. A innovator of rock and roll.

Can't imagine my whole life without this song, love it.

The first song about fame.

Best of the best

8 Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys Cover Art

This single cost $50,000 to make; the most expensive at the time.

Beach Boys music was flawless -- Great times!

The harmonies on this song are flawless.

9 Enter Sandman - Metallica Enter Sandman - Metallica Cover Art

If you're going to put a Metallica on the top 10 it should be Master of Puppets or maybe Creeping Death. I personally dislike this song. I believe the...And Justice For All album was the beginning of their downfall.

Flying The flag of Heavy metal!

My first metal song, that's classic

Great riffs, great lirycs, great music, great band, great METALLICA!

10 Hey Jude - The Beatles Hey Jude - The Beatles Cover Art

GREAT Beatles song, second only to Something, too bad they did not stay together longer..

Don't let the writing credits fool you. Paul McCartney wrote this all his own. Lennon had nothing to do with it.

Easily number 2 all-time behind Stairway...which is listed at 10?

This is possibly the best song on the list...
Hey jude!
That's just awesome singing harmonies..

The Contenders

11 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

Maybe Dillon's "Like a Rolling Stone" could be #1 along with a few others, but this is supposed to be Rock-n-Roll! Stairway fits that spot. Some of these listed should not even be close to the top.

It's like these guys could read each others minds! This song will always be timeless.

Amazing amazing song! For any mood!

This song gives inspiration to all generations.

12 The Letter - The Box Tops The Letter - The Box Tops Cover Art

Great to see this on the list. Largely ignored these days, but feels like a couple of minutes of perfection to me. Love it.

13 Respect - Aretha Franklin Respect - Aretha Franklin Cover Art

Below Pink Floyd and Nirvana? Asinine.

EVERYONE knows this song. Best cover ever.

Good grooves, best lyrics, unbelievable voice

14 What's Going On - Marvin Gaye What's Going On - Marvin Gaye Cover Art

I've been asking myself the same question.
