The Top Ten

1 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

This song if a movement of its own. - queen11

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

This is a top 10 song, but not number 1 - Powerfultekin

Without a doubt. Skewers the 60s. Prefigures the decline to come. The most astringent antidote to the other garbage on this list.

2 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

This list is an insult to all of humanity.

Its definitely the most Best Song ever

Hands down, best song ever written and performed.

Will top the list when RS does the "500 most overrated" of All Time.

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

The cornerstone for rock music - queen11

4 Imagine - John Lennon

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. - queen11

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

6 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Best Guitar Solo in the World...

Best guitar solo ever

Best

A Metalica song before this ONE? what! Are you kidding me?! Every MetaliCA song combined does not even come Close to Freebird! To anybody with 1/2 a brain shhould know The song FREEBIRD should be #1, Period!

7 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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.

Amazing amazing song! For any mood!

This song more than any other should number 1

Best song!

8 Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry

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. - queen11

One of the best - Tabor

9 Enter Sandman - Metallica

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.

My first metal song, that's classic

My third metal song I listened to, after an Iron Maiden and Disturbed song. - Powerfultekin

Flying The flag of Heavy metal!

This song shouldn't even be in the top One Thousand! Hey any of you Morons ever heard of BLACK SABATH?! (who by the way INVENTED Heavy Metal)?! Or how JudaJudas Priest?! Iron Maiden?! Who's songs aren't een othis list?! What a Joke! Metalica's such an Overrated band who's lack of talent doesn't even come anywhere close to the previous mentioned bands! Anybody with a low IQ should know this!

The harmonies on this song are flawless.

The Newcomers

11 Hey Jude - The Beatles

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