Okay here is the plan. My school is rife with kids who listen to rap, hiphop, and the like, and don't know a thing about rock. I've talked to some of them, and some say they'd like to get into rock to se what it's like, but don't know where to start. So, I've decided to arrange a 2 cd, 20 song per cd, 40 songs total, "Best of Rock" and I want you to help me, UG.

Rules:

-Song must have been written after the year 1960. (I.e. no Chuck Berry)

-Song must be Rock, or any of it's sub-genres, like Metal, Rap-Rock, Country Rock, etc.

-No instrumentals

-No Stairway to Heaven


Take note that the songs will be ranked from best song ever (No.1) to Just Bearly Made the Cut (No.40)

Please don't just post a band name. I need individuall songs.

Thanks.

What's the logic behind "No Stairway"?


Oh, it'll be on the album. I just don't want the usuall 40 posts saying only "Stairway, duhhh"

Dream Theater MUST be on there, and obviously the classics (Zeppelin, Who, Stones, Guns N' Roses, Beatles). And Foo Fighters, great band to start getting into if you're new to rock.

Individual songs:

Metropolis- Dream Theater

Zeppelin- Misty Mountain Hop

The Who- Baba O'Reilly

Stones- Satisfaction

Guns N' Roses- Paradise City

Beatles- Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds

Foo Fighters- Let It Die

you must have some Zep, ACDC, and Beatles, but try and put in some obscure ones, and a few alt rock bands, RATM and Sublime for example

2-back in black
3-good times bad times
4-run to the hills
5-the trooper
6-highway to hell
7-thunderstrock

Stooges. More important to rock n roll than given credit. but you'd probably have to put something typical, like "wanna be your dog" or "search and destroy". maybe "1969" or "gimme danger", though id prefer "tv eye" or "dirt"

.. and of course add some sabbath(OZZY ERA), and bowie (ziggy area probably)
#20
Alright what do you think should be No. 1?

What's with no instrumentals? Some instrumentals are simply BRILLIANT!!!
Anyway, i would put something from each genre,
ACDC
Megadeth
Nile
Necrophagist
Audioslave
Children of Bodom
Immortal
you get the point

Jimi Hendrix's live Machine Gun performance. That shit was on FIYAH!

No instrumentals?

Ok, well also throw in maybe Southern Man, Thunderstruck, War Pigs, and I don't know what else. I'd mention The Fall of Troy but I probably overrate them as a fan, and Erak's voice is rather high pitched to be appreciated by Rap Junkies.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns...

Don't forget Pink Floyd and Rush.

i don't think pink floyd would be a good idea. don't get me wrong i love those guys but when i started listening rock they were really boring to me.

I don't see why they'd want to get into rock. I'd be happy with listening to Public Enemy from now until the day I die.
#25
Mozart: Violin Concerto in A
Bach: WTCI Prelude and Fugue suite #3
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 2
Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven

If they're not into rock, don't put anything too 'metally' in there like angel of death or whatever, or maybe only one. Stick to more mainstream things like foo's, greenday etc i'd say.

Also, put enter sandman on, everyone loves that
