332 Purple Haze - The Jimi Hendrix Experience Purple Haze - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Dude Hendrix is just like the greatest musician ever definitely top 10
right behind queen Zeppelin
- idso27

Hendrix, easily the greatest guitarist to live, he inspired, and revolutionized most genres, and musicians his music deserves to be at the very top of this top ten without a doubt, just listen to songs such as Along the Watchtower, Voodoo Chile, simply, mind blowing!

I'm pretty shocked that nothing by Hendrix made it into even the top 50. This song is probably one of his most iconic, and no one has mentioned it yet! This man was a genius! @

I firmly believe that All Along the Watchtower and Purple Haze both deserve a higher standing.

The greatest song by the greatest guitarist.

333 Lateralus - Tool

Lateralus. The album, the song, sheer genius. Allow me to explain. You see in music each line is comprised of measures and these measures affect how the timing in the song occurs such as the pulses and the drum beats etc. Most songs stay in either 4/4, 2/4, or 8/8 time signature, meaning four beats for every measure, etc. This songs chorus, comprised of three lines, descends by a beat each line. Thus you have 9/8 for the first line, 8/8 for the second line, 7/8 for the final line. If you thought THAT was crazy, that is only the beginning. You see, Lateralus is the title track for Tool's 2001 album "Lateralus. " Now Lateralus in and of itself was a complex song, and most fans thought it a bit awkward the way the syllables were laid out in the verses. This song actually acts as a gateway to a re-structuring of the albums tracks for a "Holy Gift" (as it is known by their fanbase). You see on The Holy Gift version, each track leads perfectly and coherently into the ...more

The most technical band that I have ever listened to. There should be more tool on this list

This is must hear song, the greatest song ever that created by tool. Maynard is very genius artist

Personally I like Pushit most, but this is definitely deserving to be higher on this list.

334 Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers Can't Stop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

I've heard so many musics... But can't stop is a genius's creation. Introduction is simply amazing. This music should be in the Top Five dude! Red Hot Chili Peppers Rocks a lot, thanks for Flea the BEST bass player, Anthony, the old guitarist, Frusciante, he used to rock a lot. Can't stop reflects a lot about our unstoppable society, everything is fast and we don't have time to relax a bit, we always have something else to do after finishing something. Yeah dude, "Can't Stop"

Lyrics brilliantly written and shaped into undoubtedly one of their greatest hits

Totally underrated because it has no pretenses, no hype, just a song that rhythmically hooks you and delivers a deep and emotional undertones. Can't stop listening to it and liking it. Heard it first on a jukebox in a bar - selected by a stylishly hip girl - and t

I hear this song and it sucks

335 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater

Whenever people ask me what my single favorite song ever is, I will always answer 'A Change of Seasons' without hesitation. It is really THAT GOOD. It goes through many moods, from Cheerful, Sad, Angry, and Hopeful, while telling the beautiful story of someone's life. Even though it clocks in at almost 24 Minutes, it actually keeps you engaged from start to finish. 'A Change of Seasons' is truly a musical masterpiece.

Progressive Metal WIN. Portnoy and Petrucci showing their amazing skills in drumming and guitars to provide the best song ever made.

This song is truly amazing and is Dream Theaters best song right next to Octavarium It is 23 minutes long which makes it a truly epic song

My favorite all time Dream Theater song by far.

336 Rolling in the Deep - Adele Rolling in the Deep - Adele

Amazing song, but it's fairly new. Hopefully it can get way higher! - GuitarManiac715

How is this song ranked 323? This is an incredibly good song. It's beautifully executed, and should be way higher. - Pluma

Adele doesn't need auto tune to help her amazing voice! She's also not at all like other artists today(2015). It's purely good music.

YES. Adele rules! So much emotion in her voice!

339 Iron Man - Black Sabbath Iron Man - Black Sabbath

awesome song, this deserves to atleast be in the top 10, Black Sabbath influenced metal to the point of creating the genre

I am iron man
Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We'll just pass him there
Why should we even care? - htoutlaws2012

340 Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen
