Nice work. R.E.M.'s too high and The Dead Milkmen are too low, though.

jessicape said...

Joan Jett should be higher, but all in all, good job.

MJ at 31??? Show some respect, yo!
And Huey Lewis deserves better than 41.

Impressed. Looks like this took a lot of time and effort.

Just now stumbled onto this list. I think it easily could have been pushed to 100 songs. Not on the list were some of my favorites: God Gave Rock And Roll To You 2 - KISS, Rock Candy - Montrose, Rockin Is Ma Business - The Four Horsemen, I like To Rock - April Wine, and Rock in America, just to name a few. Those easily should have been on the list before some of the songs from pop & blues acts that did make the list.

#19: It's actually Bill Haley and HIS Comets. Just found this blog, looking forward to exploring it.

Rockin' Into The Night - .38 Special

No way to Nickelback or a convicted child molester/one-hit wonder...

#22- the Billy Idol song is actually called "Cradle of Love", not "Rock The Cradle". Doesn't belong on the list.

What about Long Live Rock by the Who
