Top 10 Rock Songs

Thanks for stopping back in for Top 10 Tuesdays! I am sure I will offend some serious rock heads out there with this list because I am not really a fan of the genre. One of my real good (white) friends told me my list sucked, and that some don’t really qualify as rock bands. Also told me there were some classics I left off the list like One by Metallica. Didn’t feel it, sorry. Keep in mind I am a brotha who grew up listening to gospel, r&b, rap, blues, jazz and a tad bit of country. I have heard these songs through life via commercials, gyms, televisions, etc. but didn’t even know the name of 99% of them until I decided to put this list together. These are my top 10 rock songs…or the ones I can actually deal with. For those who may not be familiar with the songs, you can click on the name to redirect to YouTube and listen.

10. Butterfly – Crazy Town


9. Bodies – Drowning Pool
Dunno what it is about that hook, but makes you wanna go do some damage. Most effective in that Jet Li flick (The One).


8. Closer – Nine Inch Nails
Sadastic song, but like the beat.


7. Rollin’ – Limp Bizkit


6. Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana


5. Freak on a Leash – Korn
I feel Korn.


4. Feel Good Inc – Gorillaz


3. Hotel California – The Eagles
I like this. It is just mellow.


2. Highway to hell – AC/DC
Tell me you don’t feel it. Them boys were getting funky. lol.


1. Walk This Way – Aerosmith / Run DMC
I am sorry, I just need a little bit of flava added to it. lol.


Ok, technically if I were giving an unbaised top 10, I’d have to include these bonus 5 on the list for historical value.

11. Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix

12. Smoke on Water – Deep Purple

13. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida – Iron Butterfly

14. Rolling Stones – Satisfaction

15. Guns N Roses – Welcome To The Jungle


I don’t know much about rock, but here are a few other names I heard thrown around that I like: Paint it Black – Rolling Stones, Falling Away From Me – Korn, Bawitdaba – Kid Rock, American Woman – Lenny Kravitz, Break Stuff – Limp Bizkit, Numb – Linkin Park feat Jay Z, Dance Dance – Fall Out Boy, Kashmir – Led Zeppelin, Born to be Wild – Steppenwolf, Pour some Sugar On Me – Def Leppard
