Everybody loves a rock band that can create a song that can top the charts, but which of these tunes are the best of the best?
Today I’ll be diving into the top five rock songs of all-time, in no particular order.
Yes, I have not heard every single rock song and this is my own opinion.
So without further delay, let’s dive into the musical madness and rock out.
Livin’ On A Prayer, Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi not only made a song that every rock fanatic can jam out to, but he put together a classic that will last generations.
Livin’ On A Prayer starts out slow but then elevates the mood in the room thanks to lyrics that state the following:
“Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear. Woah, livin’ on a prayer.”
The 1986 hit song not only used an electric guitar but a talkbox utilized by Richie Sambora.
Whenever it sounds like someone is saying, “a whoa whoa, a whoa whoa” in an odd fashion, that’s actually the talkbox.
Nothin’ But A Good Time, Poison
This 1988 hit is one of those rock songs you need to play while driving.
Nothin’ But A Good Time recently was used as background music during the first episode of the YouTube show, “Cobra Kai”.
Poison drummer Rikki Rockett said the song was created for the working class.
It was also about the desire to have a good time despite challenges going on in the world.
Juke Box Hero, Foreigner
Released in 1981, Jukebox Hero brought it all between the vocals, drums, and guitars. It was truly one of a kind.
The song was written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones.
It was also inspired by a fan who waited outside an arena for about five hours in the rain.
Jones ended up showing the fan what happens backstage at a concert.
Pretty cool I must say.
Don’t Stop Me Now, Queen
This rock song stood out in part because of its fast pace.
Freddy Mercury was outstanding not just because of his ability to sing, but the writing was also high quality and very descriptive.
His emotion and readiness to perform were clear and Freddie’s energy certainly made me want to catapult myself from my seat.
Love Gun, Kiss
Paul Stanley wrote the rock song while on a plane to Japan and it clearly sticks out as one of the most important songs in Kiss’s history.
Stanley added that it’s probably the song he enjoys performing the most.
Love Gun was released in 1977 and still holds up today because of its vocals and instrumentals used to project its message.
It was used in the movie, “Role Models” which includes actors Paul Rudd and Sean William Scott.
Out of all the rock songs I’ve heard I have to say these five are my favorite.
And if you watched the YouTube videos embedded in the article you’ll understand why.
