Ten Best Rock Songs of All Time

I just watched the first episode of Rock Star - "Supernova." Yeah. That's right. Because I'm a reality tv show hog. Anyway, Dilana did a respectable rendition of Lithium except for her freak show dance moves at the end. I think she could kick Tommy Lee's ass.

So I'm inspired to ask- What do you think are the ten best rock songs of all time? We'll have to do one for other genres too.

Here's my list in no particular order:
  1. Immigrant Song - Led Zepplin
  2. Baba O'Reilly - The Who
  3. Vodoo Chile - Jimi Hendrix
  4. Have a Cigar - Pink Floyd
  5. London Calling - The Clash
  6. Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
  7. Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
  8. Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones
  9. School's Out - Alice Cooper
  10. Heroin - Velvet Underground
Oh, and here's Condy Rice's picks for the ten best musical works of all time. Plus the National Review's top 50 Conservative Rock Songs.
