I know every song is not for every person, but it's hard not to like these songs. I tried to not list a bunch of songs from the same few bands, but some artists produced so much good music that they had more than one song that belonged on this list. I decided not to list cover songs, but if I had Guns N' Roses' cover of Knocking On Heaven's Door, and Van Halen's cover of Girl You Really Got Me would have both made the list.

Great list !

I currently have 'Smoke On The Water' as the ringtone on my cellphone.

Before that I had 'Sunshine Of Your Love' by Hendrix/Cream.

Your compilation is quite complete. It covers different moods and comes from a variety of bands. I really enjoyed reading your list of greatest rock songs because there were many on the list that I would consider great, too.

You have done a good job and I am really impressed that you have kept it to 100 of the greatest, not 105 or 300 of the greatest.

I really like your list. The only problem I have, is that is seems to be more 'heavy' rock. There's no Beatles, Eagles, or Billy Joel on there. I don't know if you just don't like them, or if you just concentrated on more 'rock-like' songs.

yeah i must agree.
a good list.
a hundred times better than that rolling stones pathetic list.
n i agree with the author about that covers. knockin on heaven's door is the best cover song.

cum on
livin on a prayer
you give love a bad name
bad medicine
wanted dead or alive
keep the faith
my god bon jovi are underatted
who agrees

Only problem is Epic by Faith No More isn't on here. Great list otherwise.
