    where the hell is comfortably numb,, time,, echoes, hey you,, high hopes by pink floyd,, at least they should be in top 5………….

  10. Chase says:

    Yeah there are multiple other pink floyd songs that should be before another brick in the wall, and Time should be top 5 minimum.

    And the fact that there is no Rush makes me shit bricks.

  19. Nate says:

    why isn’t free bird #1

  20. Ryan says:

    While I may only be fifteen, I agree with stairway, but a lot of this is subjective to the bloggers taste. I agree that the Beatles and the Stones are overly represented here, but what about Clapton? There’s nothing unless you count Layla. Also, hotel California is classic rock but Nirvana is not. Classic rock is from 1950-1980. Also, no early metal influences like sabbath or AC/DC? Rush? And no freaking van halen? While I’m not saying I could neccesarily do a better job, I could sure as heck do a different list. By best, you should probably look at the artists influence on society and how that respective song of theirs impacted rock music. A few suggestions, add at least “Hot for Teacher” van halen, “Iron Man” black sabbath, “Back in black” AC/DC, “Tom sawyer” Rush, basically any song from appetite for destruction, “Schools out” Alice cooper, and some KISS. Just suggestions remember but also take a look at some modern video games like guitar hero and research why they chose the songs that they chose. Altogether not bad. Maybe rework some of the songs. Cause come on, Fres Bird at 23? Top ten.

  21. Ryan says:

    O and Metallica. Enter Sandman or One. And U2, stuff from Joshua Tree.

  22. Daniel says:

    Personally I dont care too much for the list because I’m not to big on the beattles at all. Their style is more along the lines with the beach boys.bunch a hippies….sorry to offend anyone.how the heck can I unchained melody be on this list…..dont make no sense.that’s oldies but goodies. Anyway the whole list can be argued over but the fact is ladies and gents…. It all depends on the listener.for me what I dont see on the list is bon jovi.come on people! Bed of roses, wanted dead or alive, you give love a bad name! Or what about gnr paradice city, welcome to the jungle.poison every rose has its thorn, nothing but good time, talk dirty to me. Blue oyster cult don’t fear the reaper. journey don’t stop believing. Phil collins in the air tonighT. Danger zone by kenny loggins.

  23. Tristan says:

    How is AC/DC not in here

  24. Dick B says:

    Nick is 100% right. Any top 50 or 100 or 1000 rock song list that does include the 50’s and 60’s pioneers who paved the way is not worth it’s ink.

  25. Mike says:

    No Green Grass and High Tides? Disqualifies this list.

  26. RAj says:

    ok what bout november rain NO GUNS N ROSES WHAT SO EVER!!!!!

  27. Blahblahblah says:

    I agree with a lot of stuff on this list but some I don’t care for. There should be Just What I Needed by The Cars.

  28. Dude97 says:

    You left off Sunshine of Your Love by Cream.
    What year does classic rock begin and end in your opinion?

  29. Ash says:

    Stairway to heaven really?

  30. Patrotmemory says:

    This is HIS Top 50. You take the time to do this. Post it. Then get your ass-reamed by the trolls.

    At least spell the song and artists correctly: ‘Cause come on, Fres Bird at 23? Top ten.’

    OMG Lynyrd Skynyrd sucked! Many good songs not on his list but so what…

    You could list every song ever recorded and released and still somebody would have a complaint. 99% on the people on the internet: shouldn’t be.

  31. ambrea says:

    WHERE IS NIRVANA!?!?!?!?!?!? … NIRVANA IS MY FAVORITE BAND OF ALL TIME

  32. Tracy says:

    My all time favorite song is Crystal Ball by Styx. There are so many really good classic rock songs, I do think for popularity Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rhapsody and Hotel California 1. 2. 3.
    That’s my opinion. Sorry, I liked Kiss in their day but nothing they wrote compares to those!

  33. “Stairway to Heaven” plays out as a kind of spirit quest, a journey into a quasi-mythical, pagan past through music.
