I think that's a more interesting song than Hey Jude, so I'm not sad to see it make the list. But at #5? The Beatles are at #5? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. :fyi:

Yeah, there have to be a lot more than four groups better than they.... :poke

Eh, I've got no views on that question. They didn't say, to my recollection, that they're picking biggest hits or most influential or even most played on "classic rock" radio stations. Just greatest classic rock songs. A Day in the Life makes that cut. But not at #5. I mean, having a list like this without the Beatles at #1 is like having a list of important popes without St. Peter at #1. (I hope that doesn't come across as sacrilegious.)


I don't really care which Beatles song they pick, they have so many great ones that you could pick almost at random....so long as you didn't pick something dumb like 'Why don't we write a filler song', I mean 'Why Don't We Do It in the Road?', 'Honey Pie' or 'Revolution 9' now that I think about it, The White Album sure does seem to have a lot of stupid pointless filler songs on it doesn't it?) but the basis principle that the number one song HAS TO BE a Beatles song is pretty solid I think....there are at least a dozen that I would consider a worthy candidate for 'best' Beatles song, but whatever song they pick #1 has to be a Beatles song...

I think that in the future, whenever anyone, anywhere in the world, decides to make such lists, this sentence should be branded onto them somewhere prominent, in order to help avoid such shameful mistakes as putting the Beatles at #5. :fyi:

Of course, the prospect of the branding might decrease the frequency with which such lists are produced. But I'm not sure that's an altogether bad thing. These lists usually just tick me off. :fyi: For instance, this one. :fyi:

so are we pretty much in agreement the top 4 have to be, in no particular order, ac/dc, led zeppelin, stones and aerosmith?

I like AC/DC but I would pretty much NEVER put them on a 'best of' anything list....unless the list was 'best bands that re-made the same song 50000 times in the course of their career'

I don't really mind 'best of lists' but what I do hate is the ranking, which is arbitrary....in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (which, by the way, is more or less a complete joke) they have a list of 'the 500 songs that influenced rock and roll', there is absolutely no ranking, it's just a list of 500 songs that are regarded as very important and influential....if you're gonna make a list, that's the way to do it...

No Stevie Ray Vaughn, no Rush, but they let in Guns n Roses, who had two albums before falling apart, and they have bizarre choices like the Four Tops, Miles Davis and The Shirelles, who may have been good groups, but were NOT rock musicians....if you're going to let in Miles Davis, then why not Leonard Bernstein or John Cage? The admission standards appear to be completely random.

Well, I like AC/DC a whole lotta less now than I did when I was about 16, but still, if you're doing a list of great classic rock songs, AC/DC's got to appear. I preferred the Bon Scott years (though like everyone else, Back in Black was still my favorite album), but it's pretty obvious they'll go for You Shook Me...
