The best rock song ever?

Postby fairydandy » Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:38 am

Well, if you want to play, you get to name one song only...and no Queen. :P

Here's my vote.

Is a seven-part 20+ minute suite considered one song? :mrgreen:

(Wow, though, I've actually not seen this uh....comic-book-style video for it yet. Sweet.)

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

This is tougher than I thought! Crazy Train by Ozzy tops my list.

I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

There are many, including Weeman's choice up there. I can't decide on just one, but I'll just go with this, then.

Hahahahaha, changed my mind about 8 times. This would make a good thread for posting multiple songs. The best of the best. 8-)

This is actually a really tough question... Don't think any of the suggestions yet would cut it for me. Guns n' Roses are in for a shout at the title but I wouldn't call "Civil War" their best rock song, amazing as it is!

I never really appreciated GnR until I saw a documentary about them. All of a sudden, I 'got it' and I find myself watching YouTubes of them live, even recent live shows. I never appreciated Axl's vocals either, but after watching them again on the Freddie Tribute, again, I just 'got it', the energy is just temendous. Civil War is a fantastic rock song and I can't stop playing it!

It is a tough question and I am sure we could all change our minds many times over, but let's all pick our 'best rock song' at this moment in time. I am going to listen to them all and I will probably make a QOL compilation to play in the car.

Great track but I prefer Rocket Queen. That's the most underrated GNR song IMO.
