100 Greatest Rock Songs

Criteria: - These songs were chosen and ranked based upon their initial and lasting popularity, influence, and acclaim. Also considered is the song's overall impact on the history of the rock genre. An effort was made to cover all styles of rock from the various eras of the genre, from the late 1940s through the early 2010s. An effort was also made to cover as many different important artists as possible without compromising the integrity of the rankings. Essentially there were several hundred songs that had very similar qualifications to be listed in the 201-300 part of the list, so in some instances we opted to list a song by a different artist rather than list another song by an artist that was already covered. When two or more versions of a song were fairly equal in importance, the versions were listed together, in order of the "greatness" of each version, based on the criteria.

Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Songs...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMLbPqcyGnE

A decent job but the schmuck used "Hey Bo Diddley" instead of "Bo Diddley" and he used a later re-recording of "Good Golly Miss Molly" instead of the correct 1958 Specialty hit.

I accidentally bought that "Little Richard remakes his hits so he can get the royalties he deserves" greatest hits CD. I was so pissed. I went right back to the store and bought the Specialty collection.

Nice to see Jailhouse Rock in the top 10.

Not relevant to the thread but maybe someone knowledgeable will see this and be able to help. This video says the recording is Ike and Tina Turner, but it's not--their version sounds totally different. What is the version I'm hearing here?

Dreww, I believe the Turners cut a couple different versions of that song: the uptempo version in the video, and a more relaxed, bluesier version (which is probably the one you're familiar with).

Does anybody know what CD the version in the video is on? Or where I can get an MP3 of it? This video is the only place I can find it.

Edit: nvm; found it.

It might be helpful to tell us what you're laughing about.

Since "Sweet" clearly destroys "Shelter" in popularity, I have a hard time seeing why "Shelter" should be above it, if that's what you mean to imply.

Lady Gaga destroys Stairway in popularity, so what?

Though I don't like his posting style, I'm with Taro in saying that this list needs a MAJOR overhaul.

Very much so.

Does this list even have criteria? It's not even consistent with the other songs lists! For example: A Day In The Life is at #7 and Hey Jude is at #23, but at the top 10 songs by Popular artists list collection, Hey Jude > A Day In The Life. I'm confused.

I say we start from scratch. Stairway stays at #1, though.

Usual one I guess. Popularity, influence, musical and cultural impact.

That's actually one of the main reasons I never liked this list a lot.
