No, these are the top 10 Classic Rock songs!

So British radio station Planet Rock put out a list of the top classic rock songs of all time, based on a poll.  There are thousands of these sorts of lists, but I happened to gripe that the list was predictable, so now you get our versions of the top 10 classic rock songs.  Mine is strictly pre-1980, and I excluded any punk to keep things straightforward.  I’ve also included a hefty list of “honorable mentions” that didn’t quite make the cut but are nevertheless worthy.


1. Pink Floyd – Brain Damage/Eclipse


2. The Allman Brothers Band – Whipping Post


3. Led Zeppelin – Achilles’ Last Stand


4. Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now


5. David Bowie – Moonage Daydream


6. The Beatles – Helter Skelter


7. Iggy Pop and the Stooges – Lust for Life


8. Steppenwolf – The Pusher


9. Bob Dylan – The Time’s They Are A’ Changin’


10. The Jackson 5 – I Want You Back
