The Top Ten
This song if a movement of its own. - queen11
Arguably the best anthem ever written or performed.
This song deserves to be the #1 song of all time
Without a doubt. Skewers the 60s. Prefigures the decline to come. The most astringent antidote to the other garbage on this list.V 9 Comments
This list is an insult to all of humanity.
Hands down, best song ever written and performed.
Its definitely the most Best Song ever
Much better and more complex, than the first one (Like a rolling stone from Dylan).
It is a masterpiece.
The cornerstone for rock music - queen11
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

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
Best of the bestV 4 Comments
This single cost $50,000 to make; the most expensive at the time. - queen11
The harmonies on this song are flawless.
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 gives inspiration to all generations.
'stairway to heaven' and 'like a rolling stone' are iconic. both should be at the top.V 8 Comments
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
My third metal song I listened to, after an Iron Maiden and Disturbed song. - Powerfultekin
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!V 2 Comments
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?V 2 Comments

I've been asking myself the same question. - queen11

You know this song in the first few cords, it's a story teller and sung by the greatest rock vocalist of all time.
