Top 80 Rock Songs Of All Time

Top 80 Rock Songs Of All Time

I read Stephen King's List of 25 best rock songs ever in Entertainment Weekly and thought how empty the void must feel for those of you who don't know what my choices would be. hehe. My choices quickly got a little bigger than 25, so I figured 80 would be a good number. They are in no particular order and I'm sure I'm leaving out abut 80 songs I like better. What do you think?
