500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll

I don't want to live without you by Foreigner (sp?) (insert jimlad)(their best hit, yet ruined their career)
"The Reaper" Blue Oyster Cult....with extra cow bell. :biglaugh:

Some of the all time greatest songs are
Cinnamon Girl - Neal Young
Manic Depression - Hendrix
House of the Rising Sun - The Animals
Cars hiss by my Window - The Doors
When the Levee Breaks - Zep
Some great songs listed here. I agree with most of those that came from the late 80s/early 90s. I'll toss 'Welcome to the Jungle' in there since I haven't seen it yet. Seriously has to be in there - hell it is still played in 80% of sports arenas before or during games

I will always maintain that "Born to be Wild" is the perfect rock song. It's loud, has the instantly recognizable guitar riff, and it's rebellious (for the time.
