This should be #1
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

WHERE IS MASTER OF PUPPETS?!?!
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.

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. - queen11
Well the rolling stone's kinda biased towards The Beatles.. - InZamous
Easily number 2 all-time behind Stairway...which is listed at 10?2 Comments
Greatest song ever
It's like these guys could read each others minds! This song will always be timeless.
Should be #1
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.11 Comments
Great to see this on the list. Largely ignored these days, but feels like a couple of minutes of perfection to me. Love it.
Below Pink Floyd and Nirvana? Asinine.

The beatles were so great, they did not bother to release this as a single, even though it was guaranteed to hit #1 on the billboard chart.
Probably one of the greatest songs of all time from such a complete album
You know this song in the first few cords, it's a story teller and sung by the greatest rock vocalist of all time.
Perfection personified. Alan Price organ piece in the middle is the best sound I ever heard!
