100 Greatest Rock Songs

The popular music that we generally listen to these days is quite different from when rock nā€™ roll started in the 1950s. Many people, including me still listen to classical rock music. This means this genre of music has not lost its popularity at all. There is also an enormous number of bands and artists who pay tributes to these artists and produce this kind of music. Bands like The Beatles, The Doors, Led zeppelin, rolling stones and many are the ones who actually started this type music and introduced a who different level of rock music that was different from the 1950s typical rock nā€™ roll music. Personally if I have to choose my 5 top favorite rock bands of all time I would probably go with:

  • The Beatles
  • The Doors
  • Led Zeppelin
