100 GREATEST ROCK SONGS

This site has never run an On-Going fan poll for the greatest rock song, since there are just so many rock songs out there, so that is one fan list you will not see on this site. But in 1996 I did come up with this list of my own, and only in 2014 did I update the top 5 songs on it, the rest I've left alone. So here is my list of just my favorite rock songs. As I noted years ago, the first 30+ or so songs on this list, to me, are all just as great as the number one song that I picked. There are so many other songs that didn't make this list that I also love. Should have done a top 200, but I had to stop somewhere!
