    Re: Greatest Rock Song of All Time

    I think one has to classify by era. Early 90s definitely goes to Nirvana.

    Re: Greatest Rock Song of All Time

    Bye, Bye, Bye - 'N Sync. No other song in this or any generation truly captured true emotion and passion in the musical verse. Truly the folks responsible for such a masterpiece can see beyond just the music, but into the soul of a man and then take that into the speakers of the world.

    Re: Greatest Rock Song of All Time

    The greatest rock song of all time probably comes down between: "Satisfaction" by the Stones, "Stairway" by Zeppelin, or "Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry.

    Some of my favorites:
    "Wild Horses" by the Stones
    "Free Falling" Tom Petty
    "You Can't Always Get What You Want" Stones
    "Alive" Pearl Jam


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Great, great, GREAT tune. Probably not popular/influential enough to call "the greatest". To me there is a difference between my personal favorite tunes, and the ones that are generally considered the "greatest".

    Throwing "Free Bird" by Skynyrd into the mix, too...

    Definitely agree for the '90s.

    Re: Greatest Rock Song of All Time

    Sorry, as much as I love Zeppelin, AC/DC, etc. the best rock song has to be something from the Beatles. Don't care which one...just pick one.

    Obviously, even THIS isn't the greatest song in the world, it's just a tribute...
