Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

Simply the best, ozzy has been going at it since the beginning of metal and is still rocking. Long live the prince of darkness!

This is Ozzy's signature song for a reason. It talks about the dangers of drugs and it has some kick ass guitar riffs. This is definitely one of his best hits! I love you, Ozzy!

I loves this song. Its hard rock with just a touch of insanity. My only real issue with this song though is it is not higher on this list. I mean seriously its hard core epicness. :D I say it should be number one.

Great song..Randy Roades,and Ozzy at their best!

182 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

This song is the best, it rocks. Just like everything the Beatles did. To see it so far below in this list makes me sad, people vote for that is gonna be forgotten a week or so from now. The Beatles are eternal, there are other great things too, but specially them. Something, Hey Jude, Yesterday, Hard Day's Night, I could have voted for any of them. But to see this so far below, it pains me. - Coolfighter

It deserves to be much higher on this list.
It has a feel which other songs lack.
I have no idea what it is doing languishing at the bottom of this list.

This is so low but why everything about it is great unlike those stupid songs you have voted for like taylor swift! The Beatles are the best band ever and that will never change! - TheThomasThomas

Eric Clapton plays lead guitar on this song...Kick Ass!

183 La Villa Strangiato - Rush

Why 238 it needs to be higher than at least 100 - mopofloyd

Best song of all time

184 The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin

This is such a great song, one of their best. It's mellow and has some great tunes and I love the whole theme of the song. One of my favorites.

I've never heard a song better then this one...Period!

185 The Memory Remains - Metallica V 1 Comment
186 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins

Immortal song. Not like all of the crappy songs up there you listen 3 times and switch to something else.

I am in utter disbelief that this is not in the top 100. This song is haunting and amazing. Gangnam Style is ahead of this... By a lot... That should tell you a lot bout people these days.

Great song! Is every losing their minds? 223,not except-able!

Great Alt Rock Song - Du

187 American Idiot - Green Day

It is an amazing song. It is the best punk rock song ever made in the history. The bit of drum, chords of guitar and voice of Billie Joe are combined in superb way.

Angry song people play this when there angry 2nd best Green Day song only behind Jesus of Suburbia

It's best song of Green Day
Let's sing a long in the age of paranoid~

Y his whole list is bullcrap if this song is not there in the top 50.

188 Tom Sawyer - Rush

540?! Are you serious? I mean, there are plenty of other good songs on this list, but Rush is the best band ever formed (hands down), and this is their best song! If this doesn't go higher, I think I'll mean mean cry!

I love RUSH. They are indeed great. They are not the greatest band of all time. That would be the Beatles. This is however possibly one of the (if not the) greatest rock songs of all time.

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit - htoutlaws2012

This is the best rush song made. Still not that good though

189 Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd's greatest song, one of the greatest classic rock songs of all time. Can't believe it's not even on the list yet. TEACHER, LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE!

Love this! It's a great song and me and my friends always put it on while we're doing art in school for the laughs. Lighthearted and fun, unlike nowadays, where (nearly) every single song is about a relationship that failed with reversed speech/screeching electronics for an instrumental.

One of the greatest songs of all time, I'd say it challenges Bohemian Rhapsody

If this list doesn't have this song in the top 10, the list isn't complete.

190 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

Great lyrics and singing. It came around the same time as Kurt Cobain's death, so it meant something to a lot of people.

One of the best grunge songs! It used many metaphors for the social decay and dependencies.

Very interesting and good tune

The best song of it's time,Best vocals,Best guitar,Best Bass,Best Drums..From One of the best bands ever!

191 Creep - Radiohead


This song will never bore you and when you sing it, you will fell release. The tune is rightly expression of the lyrics. It deserves to be on top of the list. It is a rare piece.

Love the emotion of the vocal and the lyric, it is really rare to find song like this. Sadly undervalued in this chart.

One of the best songs of all time I'll tell you that

194 When the Music's Over - The Doors

My favorite doors song of all tome. I want to hear the scream of a butterfly. I want it NOW

A classic song from the doors. Should be up a bit higher. - matty925

195 The Veldt - Deadmau5

The fact that this was based on a James Thurber makes this one a true piece of art. And that's saying a lot considering this is an EDM song.

196 Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 - Hopsin V 1 Comment
197 Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues

"if your over 35"? I'm 14 and I know and love this song. - alucard

One of the best songs ever for soothing the pain of unrequited love

If you're over the age of 35, shame on you if you don't know the words to this one!

Now how in over 300 Best of the Best songs, No one posted this one? But every one here Knows it! Right?

198 Crawling - Linkin Park

The most emotive, hard hitting screamer! Deserves a place as a representative of it's genre!

This is one of the best songs from Linkin Park I also love Lying from you and Faint

This song is the best.
It's true & everyone can relate to it.

I love the whole album hybrid theory!

If you never heard this song you need to go find and listen to it.This song has a smooth touch to it. - wideup

I always wondered, what's with ropes in the video? Anyway, great song

A day wont pass without hearing this song
Far better than most of the above songs


Definitely deserves a position in the top ten...
Love you GEORGE Michael and your sweet voice!
