    • 10. Highway To Hell by AC/DC
      Another kick a** band in 70's.
    • 9. Hotel California by Eagles
      One of the best song of theirs. I listen to anytime, it never gets old for me...
    • 8. Double Vision by Foreiger
      Love it. They are good band.
    • 7. Smoke On The Water by Deep Purle
      The sweetest guitar song ever made in the 70's.
    • 6. School's Out by Alice Cooper
      I sing it every summer when school lets out for the summer.
    • 5. Riders On The Strom by The Doors
      They kicked butt in 60's. Jim had the best voice ever.
    • 4. American Woman by The Guess Who
      Great song.
    • 3. Dream On by Areosmith
      One of the best songs ever made by them...
    • 2. Kashmir by Led Zeppelin

    • 1. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      They kick butt in 70's and now.

    Even though I am in high school, I still think this kind of music still rocks. Classic rock is better than the rock of today. Led Zeppelin are great.

    • 10. Another Brick In The Wall by Pink Floyd
      It's one of my favourites, it's a classic, and it scared me clean out of my wits when I was a child. Good times.
    • 9. Proud Mary by Ike & Tina Turner
      One of the most high-energy songs of all time.
    • 8. Fire And Rain by James Taylor
      One of the first songs I remember making me sad, before I was old enough to know what sad was.
    • 7. Lowrider by War
      This song just sounds dirty.
    • 6. The Chain by Fleetwood Mac
      This song is like brainwashing - I know I'll never break the chain.

      This song makes me feel proud to be from Alabama, and I've never even been there.
    • 4. American Woman by Guess Who
      Maybe because I'm Canadian?
    • 3. Live And Let Die by Paul McCartney & The Wings
      It's a great song. What else can I say?
    • 2. Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
      It's not necessarily the second best song, technically, but David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust makes it the second best.
    • 1. Imagine by John Lennon
      Choosing this song as # 1 is trite, I know, but that doesn't make it less true.
