Top 10 Songs From Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All-time
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.
What makes The Greatest song of all time? Impact and Timeless
There's only 3 songs with greatest impact, Hound Dog (Elvis), I Wanna Hold Your Hand (The Beatles) and Like A Rolling Stone (Dylan)
only Like A Rolling Stone is timeless
Without a doubt. Skewers the 60s. Prefigures the decline to come. The most astringent antidote to the other garbage on this list.
A brilliant lyric. No one has better described the downfall of arrogance and self entightlement.
Best song ever. Much more creative and complex song, than Dylan's "Like a rolling stone".
This song is 9th? You're joking...you have no clue about harmony and music then
Rolling Stone Magazine should have put this song in the top 5.
Hands down, best song ever written and performed.
The cornerstone for rock music
A Immortal Classic.
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
Incredible song...always shows us that nothing has changed and most likely never will!...rip John Lennon.
Best song.. If you do like that you will get result.
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!
And yes, Free Bird is a legendary song. Sorry if I got a bit aggressive.
Surprisingly it was only number 193 on their list.
Best Guitar Solo in the World...
Best guitar solo ever
I've cry everyday when I see nevermind poster that always reminds of kurt cobain...
Perfect band. Perfect song. Perfect vote.
Great song that defined a generation
I'm 60 and this song is one of the greatest
The song that DEFINES rock and roll. The sounds are all derived from this point in time. The now late Chuck Berry isn't some 'innovator' or 'contributor'. He CREATED the genre in the way it exists now. He, not Elvis, is the TRUE KING of rock and roll.
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.
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.
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
Flying The flag of Heavy metal!
WHERE IS MASTER OF PUPPETS?!?!
Don't let the writing credits fool you. Paul McCartney wrote this all his own. Lennon had nothing to do with it.
This is possibly the best song on the list...
That's just awesome singing harmonies..
GREAT Beatles song, second only to Something, too bad they did not stay together longer..
Easily number 2 all-time behind Stairway...which is listed at 10?
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.
This song gives inspiration to all generations.
This song more than any other should number 1
Great to see this on the list. Largely ignored these days, but feels like a couple of minutes of perfection to me. Love it.
Good grooves, best lyrics, unbelievable voice
EVERYONE knows this song. Best cover ever.
Below Pink Floyd and Nirvana? Asinine.
I've been asking myself the same question.
Greatest of all time!
Absolutely fabulous song...always go back to it...always will!
Great song from amazing album. From start to finish all time classic and unlike some has never aged
Best song ever. Amazing gilmour vocalks and guitar!
SaM Cooke THE GREATEST SINGER OF OUR TIME, HIS MASTERPIECE WILL FOREVER LIVE...
GREAT SONG,AND IS NEEDED TO HEARD TODAY MORE THAN EVER.
The Boss of all rock and roll! Best ever!
Best song ever
