^At this point, I'm not sure I could narrow it down. But let me be a total nerd and comment on some of yours!

 

-Hotel California, Eagles

This might make my list. I've never considered it to be even remotely overrated, nor overplayed. Regardless of any rumored meaning, I've always found it to be personally inspiring.

 

-Savior, Skillet

Not my top Skillet song, but it's from my favorite Skillet album. I was crazy for "Open Wounds" and "My Obsession."

 

-Livin' on a Prayer, Bon Jovi

I'm sure many call it cheesy, but this song just tears me up inside. Something about the deliciously dated 80s sound combined with the down-and-out lyrical content really gets to me.

my goodness.. y'all are SO, SO young.

 

can't POSSIBLY do 10. . so I made it 15. I tried to keep it to just 1 song per band. . otherwise I could have a full list of Beatles, Elton John, the Who, the Stones, etc.

 

15) "Supersonic" -- Oasis

 

14) "Lucky Man" -- the Verve

 

13) "Nothing Compares 2U" -- Sinead O'Conner (Prince cover)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUiTQvT0W_0

 

12) "Lucky Man" -- Emerson Lake and Palmer *(same name as the Verve song, but completely different song)

 

11) "Annie's Song" -- John Denver

 

10) "We Will Rock You" -- Queen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMLiqEqMQyQ

 

9) "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" -- Smashing Pumpkins

 

8) "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" -- Gordon Lightfoot

and I'm gonna "cheat" here and say this is a TIE, since the other GL song I would put in my top10 is "Sundown"

&

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8rR7E6NfY4

 

7) "Runnin With the Devil" -- Van Halen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcvtnEvclGs

 

6) "Rocket Man" -- Elton John

 

5) "Rock and Roll all Night" -- KISS

 

4) "Wild Horses" -- the Rolling Stones (tho I could have gone with "Sympathy for the Devil". . coin flip.

 

3) "Behind Blue Eyes" -- the Who

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfuWXRZe9yA

 

2) "Hey Jude" -- the Beatles

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDdI7GhZSQA

 

1) "Heroes" -- David Bowie

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBuwC4VJi50

 

I'm pretty shocked at who I left off (Zeppelin, Cream, Nirvana). . but I did keep dance/industrial off the list (that would be a separate top 10)

 

but I will add one bonus song (It really does belong in my top 5. . .but just couldn't fit it in)

 

"Love Will Tear Us Apart" -- Swans (Joy Division cover)

10. Say It Ain't So -- Weezer

9. Hotel California -- Eagles

8. Time -- Pink Floyd

7. Free Bird -- Lynyrd Skynyrd

6. Us and Them -- Pink Floyd

5. High Hopes -- Pink Floyd

4. Stairway to Heaven -- Ledd Zeppelin

3. Comfortably Numb -- Pink Floyd

2. Bohemian Rhapsody -- Queen

1. Wish You Were Here -- Pink Floyd

 

Obviously I've got a thing for Pink Floyd but High Hopes is easily one of the most underrated songs ever in my opinion.

This is very challenging. I'm really pulling this out on the fly, but here goes:

 

1. Train In Vain - The Clash

2. Respectable - The Rolling Stones

3. Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World - U2

4. Hash Pipe - Weezer

5. Grow Up - Paramore

6. It's Only Love - Bryan Adams (with Tina Turner)

7. Layla - Eric Clapton (as Derek & The Dominoes)

8. Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits

9. Watch Over You - Alter Bridge

10. Just Like Tiger Woods - Steel Panther

 

This list will probably change after more thought.

^^Train in Vain is awesome. Also liking all the classic rock songs posted. In fact, I can tell I'm going to agree with a lot of the songs named here (at least in terms of liking them generally), so I'll try not to comment on too many of them!

There's no possible way I can narrow it down to just 10 songs. I listen to so many bands, I don't even think I could narrow it down to 20 or even 30. I'll post 20 in no particular order, but it probably won't be my "top 20" songs and more like "20 songs I really enjoy."

 

"Blackbird" - Alter Bridge (I can say though that this is my favorite song of all time)

"Wonderful Tonight" - Eric Clapton

"Into The Mouth Of Hell We March" - Trivium

"Dazed And Confused" - Led Zeppelin

"Walk With Me In Hell" - Lamb Of God

"Silent Lucidity" - Queensryche

"Tired" - Stone Sour

"The Feel Good Drag" - Anberlin

"Demons" - Imagine Dragons

"Redemption" - Shadows Fall

"Still Counting" - Volbeat

"La Villa Strangiato" - Rush

"Pull Me Under" - Dream Theater

"The Bigger Picture" - Dream Theater

"Words Darker Than Their Wings" - Alter Bridge

"Shooting Star" - Bad Company

"Master Of Puppets" - Metallica

"Second Chance" - Shinedown

"Watch The Children Pray" - Metal Church

"Time Machine" - The Winery Dogs

 

I really am all over the place with this list. Like I said, this is not a list of my top songs, because I can't sort the songs I listen to into any kind of top 10 or top 20 or top anything.

^ I just saw Alter Bridge back on Monday. Myles was sick so his voice was probably only 70%, but it was an amazing show. They are most definitely underrated, and are without a doubt my favorite modern rock band, especially after the concert I went to. Tremonti was also pissing my dad off majorly. My dad plays guitar a bit, and it was making him really mad how easy Tremonti made it look while playing these super complex parts. He was like "You could at least pretend to make it look difficult, jackass!" No, but it was really amazing to watch him play, and it was extra amazing because for their encore they brought out PAUL REED F**KING SMITH, founder of PRS guitars, of whom Mark is endorsed, to jam along with them on Rise Today.

Ive been DJing for almost 20 years so there's no way I could whittle it down to 10 songs. I get overwhelmed at the thought. Just my mp3 collection is pushing 35,000 files. Thats not counting a lifetime of purchasing vinyl and CD's (and some cassettes that I have held onto believe it or not!) You can check out what I'm listening to on my last.fm profile.

It takes a hell of a lot of practice to make it look that easy and I love his PRS guitars. He plays in weird tunings too like open D, so he has transpose everything to a completely different note layout on the fret board. Tremonti says in interviews that he plays all the time when he's not on stage, on tour as well. Playing guitar is like being an athlete, you have to work extremely hard to get to his level, and then you've got to practice all the time to keeping playing at that level. I've read about guys who have to warm up for an hour before the show to be able to play their own songs.

 

Other ones I forgot:

 

You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC

Cryin' - Aerosmith

Department of Youth - Alice Cooper

I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Arctic Monkeys

Underground - Ben Folds Five

Where Is My Mind? - The Pixies

Tonight She Comes - The Cars

Fall At Your Feet - Crowded House

Girls Like That (Don't Go For Guys Like Us) - Custard

Get Lucky - Daft Punk

Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie

Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence

Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

The Fallen - Franz Ferdinand

Special - Garbage

Mr Brownstone - Guns and Roses

Beer - Reel Big Fish

New Sensation - INXS

Been Caught Stealing - Jane's Addiction

 

I'll stop there for the time being, I really like this thread.
