Songs that 'rock'?

Recommended Posts

Faintly simple in some ways, but what songs do you think 'rock'?

I posted Monster Magnet 'Space Lord' earlier on Facebook, which inspired this post. They aren't my favourite band, it isn't my favourite song, but it feels like it embodies 'rock' in a lot of ways. The guitar/bass work in particular just get me nodding my head no matter what.

I also think 'Ace of Spades' works within this context.

So yeah...any suggestions?

I'm not a huge fan of the band, but Kick Start My Heart by Motley Crue instantly comes to mind when I think of a song that flat out rocks. They play it at sporting events and I swear it pumps you up to the point where you're ready to run out on the field and tackle somebody.

Fantastic choices. I always loved the Dictators cover of Search and Destroy, which is a rocking song in it's own right, and the Dictators do a nice job on it. And of course the MC5 have always been one of my top rock choices. It's Detroit represented in both songs albeit the first song you posted is a cover by a New York Band. 

Realistically, for a song that "rocks", you can basically name off dozens of Motorhead songs. They all rock, they are rock, rock is Motorhead and Motorhead is rock.

Tons of 'Mats songs probably work, but for some reason this KISS cover is the one I point to as the definitive embodiment of "rawk."

Ok...this is a song, I don't care who has done it...I love.  Its "rocks" to me...(though I prefer either the Garbage/Screaming Females cover or the Bruce Springsteen original, but the 10,000 Maniacs version lead to my teenage crush on Natalie Merchant)

This one may be a bit unconventional of a pick due to the fact that it's more of a comedic song than anything else, but
 

Was always kind of a "pump-up" song in the mornings when I was a kid and had to get ready for school. Not really sure why.
