I got this idea from a previous thread. Since nobody can agree on genres of all music combined, I'll do my favorite genre and I'm sure a bunch of others favorite genre it's own thread. And, since 100 seems a little much, to me anyways, lets just do 20.

Name the songs that you think made people a fan of classic rock. Name the songs that you think got some kid to say"Damn, that's what I want to do" and became a legends. And etc... soooo GO!

Prett good list but I'd remove Keep on Rocking in the Free World by Neil Young and Poison by Alice Cooper. In my book, neither is really classic rock. The list could use some Led Zeppelin, Rush, and Pink Floyd.

My list, in no particular order (and not more than one song per band)...

Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil

Rush - YYZ

Steppenwolf - Magic Carpet Ride

The Who - Teenage Wasteland

The Guess Who - American Woman

The Eagles - Already Gone

The Doors - Roadhouse Blues

The Animals - We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

Ted Nugent - Stranglehold

Queen - Killer Queen

Ram Jam - Black Betty

Pink Floyd - Young Lust

Peter Frampton - Show Me The Way

Nazareth - Hair Of The Dog

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesday's Gone

Led Zeppelin - The Ocean

Jimi Hendrix - Castles Made Of Sand

Eric Clapton - Lay Down Sally

Edgar Winter Group - Free Ride

David Bowie - Space Oddity

CCR - Fortunate Son

Boston - Rock & Roll Band

Black Sabbath - The Wizard

Alice Cooper - Under My Wheels

Aerosmith - Same Old Song And Dance

EDIT : Err... that's like 25. Ooops.
