Title: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Hamelkart on 28 Jun 2005, 23:40
I don't know if there's been such topic in the past here, but can you guys (rock fans) please name the song which you consider to be the greatest rock song ever.
I've seen tons of different polls and they all tell me the different story, plus I've been fighting with my friends for ages about this subject.

I, personally think it's "Telegraph Road (live version)" by Dire Straits. I think neither Hendrix nor Page could outmatch Knopfler's solo play in that particular song (after the "like a rollin river" part).

Whole Lotta Love by Led Zepplin is in the top of my list... But there's too many to choose.

If I had to pick one song to sum up the fundamental concept of rock music to someone who'd never heard any, I'd probably have to say Motorhead's Ace Of Spades.

If I could somehow logically justify saying that Search And Destroy and Gimme Danger (first two tracks on the Stooges' Raw Power album) were in fact one big song, then I'd pick that one. But I can't.

Yeah, hard to say what is the "best", as there's such a huge selection, and depends on a person's musical tastes and even the mood you might be in at the time.

But I thought this topic was interesting as it reminded me of a recent news-article in which it's suggested that Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" song is now named "The greatest song of all time": http://edition.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/Music/06/27/dylan.stone/index.html

Though it's a good song, I don't know if I'd call it "The Greatest"...

I think you guys are simply remembering the movie too fondly. I bet some of you haven't even heard the Kiss version properly. It is rocked as much as one can possible rock a song.

I might point out also that both versions are hideously similar. There's not a lot of difference. In fact, didn't the WS version fade into the Kiss version? I could be remembering wrong. It's not like Bill and Ted sung the thing :P

Post by: Kinoko on 29 Jun 2005, 06:55
BAM! Thanks DG ^_^ I was -sure- it was the Kiss version but I didn't wanna make an assout of myself by assuming.

The difference is that the movie does have all sorts of sound effects and whatnot over the song. Which ruin the full listening experience!
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!

For me it's Bohemian Rapsody by the Queen, or a Day in the life, by the Beatles.

Fraggle Rock intro sound is cool too.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Rui 'Trovatore' Pires on 29 Jun 2005, 07:43
I read somewhere that there had been a voting made by some British newspaper or other. Bohemian Rhapsody won, hands down. But I disremember whether it was best ROCK song ever, or just best SONG ever...

And, Farlander? In the midst of the horrid Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film soundtrack, some things are pretty nice. Barry Gibb's cover of "A Day in the Life" is one. Just thought I«d mention it, you might enjoy listening to that one, too. It's funny how in some songs, like Nowhere Man, the song seemed to fit their style perfectly.

EDIT - Oh, I forgot to tell which I thought was the best. The Cranberries' "Electric Blue".
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: earlwood on 29 Jun 2005, 08:30
I have a hard time trying to narrow it down like this.. because most of the things would probably be classified as Jazz..

Best ROCK songs(In no particular order)
Frank Zappa-Black Napkins
Bob Dylan-Hurricane
Frank Zappa-Muffin Man(The Bongo Fury version)
Joe Walsh-Funk #49
Joe Walsh-Eyes of the Confessor
Steely Dan-Bodhisattva
Golden Earring-Mad Love's Comin'
Led Zepellin-In my Time of Dying
Budgie-Napolean Bona Parts 1&2 (Along with the entire Impeckable album)
Allman Brothers-You can't Lose what you Never Had

By the way, Argent's version of God Gave Rock n' Roll to you is the best.....
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!

Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Potch on 29 Jun 2005, 16:07
Picking the greatest rock song of all time is like.... picking the greenest blade of grass!!!  I mean, like others mentioned... there are so many genres of rock music, which has been shown by many of the choices on here.... we go from things like classic Zepplin, to be bop style like Crocodile Rock, to pop rock with Blink 182.... I suppose you would first have to define rock.  Do you define rock by the people who are doing it now?  Or do you define rock by who is thought to be the creator of rock... Chuck Berry.  Rock has spanned decades and has changed so much over the years, that for me it is virtually impossible to pick the best.

That being said, I'm very surprised that Pink Floyd has not been mentioned in this thread!  Anyway, here are some of my favorites.  Now, some of these my not be the best songs of all time, just ones that I love.

Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry
Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
Mr. Brownstone - Guns n Roses
Shook me all night long - acdc
Paradise by the Dashboard Lights - Meatloaf
If I close my eyes forever - Ozzy and Lita Ford
Ironic - Alanis
Bon Jovi - It's my Life
Bad Moon Rising - CCR
Old Time Rock and Roll - Bob Seger

I could go on forever.  But you see what I mean... all of these are considered rock, but they are all so different.  

And hey... cut Avril some slack.  Yeah, Sk8er Boi was weak, but you have to admit that the girl's got some talent.  She actually writes some pretty powerful stuff.  I think that she has the potential to be a lot more than a teeny bopper pop singer.

There is no such thing. Like Potch said, there are too many great rock bands and even more great songs.

But a rock song I'm stuck on at the moment:

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird

Leave it to the moderators to let a serious discussion turn silly.

Serious Discussion?  I think it's a pointless post (no offense) and hardly serious.

As a few have pointed out, there's WAY too much rock to accurately judge which is the best.

Ask 50 different people you'll get 50 different answers.

Youngsters of today probably think bands like Blink 182 are rockers ... when older folk like myself consider them cut'n'paste drivel spooging hacked up wannabes.

Perhaps next we can have a serious discussion about which color truely is the best?!?!  ;)

Did I say that? No I did not! I finished downloading the full Where Moth And Rust Destroy album off limewire (it's not that I didn't look for it at music stores, I did - if I ever find it I'll buy it, it's too awesome to be pirated) and I must say this is the best thing I've ever heard. I can't pick a favourite song, the whole album rocks. Sounds a kinda like Metallica, only a few thousand times better.

I'm very late with my response, but I've just discovered this topic. This is one of the greatest things ever written on these forums. I absolutely totally completely LOVE Telegraph Road (both versions), it's my favorite song ever (not to mention that Dire Straits are my favorite band and Knopfler my favorite guitar player) and it really makes you wonder why the heck they never tried that kind of progressive music again.

Just recently discovered there is one song I just want to hear again and again, and my body can't stand still while hearing it. It has rythm, melody, makes incredibly fun and doesn't get out of your head. Plus, you want to yell the chorus, too!! Could jump aorund the whole time while I'm hearing it.
Well, I speak of  Enfilade by At The Drive-In. With Iggy Pop blackmailer at the beginning. Whoa, want to hear it again!!  :D

Kinda wish the band would still exist, though I didn't know them when they still were around, otherwise we wouldn't have the opportunity then to listen to the godmade music of The Mars Volta.
Also there is Sparta, the other band which resulted from the split, they are pretty nice, but sadly not that amazing.

I just assumed....I only know two songs from them, not an entire album.
The band members are actually very nostalgic about their past, they wish the old times back. It's not hard to guess that they aren't pleased themselves with what they are doing.
Probably the creative counterpart that Rodriguez and Bixler were is missing now.

I would say they're more punk-rock than punk. At least Green Day is.

Poison - Unskinny Bop
Firehouse - Get In Touch
Mötley Crüe - Kickstart My Heart

Radiohead - Creep
Radiohead - The Bends

I also like:

Eagles - like Hotel California
Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
Deep Purple - Smoke on the Water
The Butterfly Effect - One Second of Insanity (not a huge band, but very much worth checking out)

That's all I can think of right now.

What's your fave paradise lost album? And what did you think of their last album, the self titled one?

My fave album would be "Symbol of life"

That's the right title name right? Well you know which one I mean surely..
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!

In my opinion, Paradise Lost were excellent in the Lost Paradise LP. The Frozen Illusion demo was good too.

Post by: ManicMatt on 04 Mar 2006, 10:38

So...this is your opinion..

Mine is contrary to yours.

I did not like the first album with all the Gothic songs, but Paradise Lost were getting better and better with the  time..

And "Ballads"...ok,,I meant the melodic titles....






Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Helm on 05 Mar 2006, 06:00
Actually nothing they ever did would classify as gothic rock... they just named their second album 'Gothic'. Paradise Lost were one of the first romantic doom, or doom/death bands around, followed closely by early Anathema and early My Dying Bride.

Lost went from this style to a generic mid-tempo atmospheric metal deal up to Icon, and from there to Draconian Times they streamlined even more, eventually losing the guitars for 'Host' which was in my opinion a fine album, one of their better, and then after facing fan backlash for not being 'metal' anymore, they returned to using heavy guitars on these awful Believe in Nothing and Symbol of Life albums. I haven't heard the newest, 'Paradise Lost' yet, but I don't think I'm missing out on anything...
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: ManicMatt on 05 Mar 2006, 16:29
Yer what? Didn't all the press claim Paradise Lost as the founders of goth metal? (Or at least the first to get press attention anyway) Yeah I thought they were more doom back then too though.

"Host" funnily enough was the first paradise lost album I got, being a fan of electronic music. My older brother on the other hand has been into them forever.

Believe in nothing was a very average album, and my bro doesn't like it except one or two songs, but "Symbol of life" is great! Their latest ditched all the synths and in some songs it's (so im told) their heaviest music ever. (I aint got the older material)

Meshuggah are a post-thrash metal industrial-tinged band from Sweden. They're universally considered unique and a very able "musician's musician" kind of band. I prefer their older material, specifically None and Contradictions Collapse, while a lot of people prefer later material like Chaosphere or Nothing. If you like a degree of musical variation, go with the former stuff, if you like very mechanical repetition of the same riff while the drummer does interesting polyrhythms underneath, go with the latter.

I'll never figure out what's so good about Meshuggah. I haven't heard their older stuff, but I heard a few songs on internet radio stations and they are boring with fake growls. Some songs are nice though.

Lately I've been obsessed with Theocracy, any song by them rules. It's melodic metal with amazing vocals. The first album is written, recorded and mixed my one person alone in his house, yet it sounds so good.

I get bored of Meshuggah quite easily these days, Tomas Haake the drummer is one of the best in the world.  His coordination is something that is unique and a lot of players can't beat him.  Except for the top players like Terry Bozzio, Virgil Donati, etc.

And I've been to Ausioslave and I enjoyed it so much...
And we sang "Holy Night" during the Runrig Christmas concert...

As important as I consider Fish, Marillion is also Stever Rothery and everybody else. I don't want to hear some other guitarist play the leads in Blind Curve or Kayleigh. Also, Fish is in another place, it's not honest to try to speak from the point of view of Misplaced. It's been 20 years.

Well, you could at least tell us your myspace or livejournal page... if you got one.

I like power metal and I think Theocracy are ridiculous.

I respect that you don't like them, but why ridiculous? It's far from ridiculous. The first  (and only, so far) album is full of emotion and was all written, performed, recorded, mixed by one person alone, and while this does not guarantee quality it shows a lot of talent and devotion. You don't like the lyrics either, apparently, seeing how they're christian and all, but putting the message aside, the lyrics are poetry (unlike stereotypical Christrian stuff).

Anyway, Petra - nobody told you to quit, just not post excessively as if this is your own forums. I suggest you get a members account where you can edit your existing posts.

It is my pleasure to enlighten you sir, though you were not the target of my generous offer of divine knowledge. Petra was the target, because my pirate insticts told me there's a possibility he might not have known that fact.

And I really have nothing better to do other than paying attention to what Helm says about the music I listen to.

Petra: Ok.

Guybrush, I find them ridiculous as I find most third wave power metal bands that ape bands-that-aped-prime-helloween. They do not stand out in any way for me, from that sort of sorry lot. Very derivative, not convincing. The music is boring too. What can I say? The big issue is, I know this music very well for the Sonata Arcticas and the Theocracys to have any effect on me. When you've heard and enjoyed the types of Jag Panzer's "Ample Destruction", Omen's "Battlecry" or Warlord's "The Cannons of Destruction Have Begun" for the bigger part of your youth, the later sort of derivative stuff doesn't appeal much. I haven't heard a decent modern power metal band since Nevermore entertained the style back in Politics of Ecstasy.

I don't mind the christian message at all. Two of my favourite bands are Savior Machine and Candlemass (from Nightfall and onwards they're positively white) and I do enjoy a lot of white power (haha, oops!) metal bands you wouldn't know like Veni Domine, Seventh Avenue or even prime Stryper. If people believe fervently in something, usually that sort of conviction captures me, be it belief in gods or devils or whatnot.

And yes, of course this is all my opinion, I don't claim to objectively be able to determine what is ridiculous and what is not. I am neither evil, nor a genius, and would appreciate it if ManicMatt would put a lid on it.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Paper Carnival on 24 Mar 2006, 11:42
Of course I know Veni Domine, Stryper and Seventh Avenue ;D. I don't know a lot of bands though, and I don't know anyone where I live who listens to any metal other than Metallica, Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, etc. My only source of good music is people I know online.

I heard some Jag Panzer before, they're good but never was much into them. My tastes changed since then, so I'll give them another chance. If you could recommend an album, what would it be? I guess I'll include them in my list next time  I order music cds.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Helm on 24 Mar 2006, 12:45
You won't find Ample Destruction on CD. And the vinyl pressing is insanely hard to find and costy. Ebay might help, but I can only say good luck. A good Jag Panzer cd is 'The Fourth Judgement', probably their best, really.

Find and buy Heir Apparent - Graceful Inheritance if you can. And Manilla Road's The Deluge.

Mew is a cool band, not only because they are good but also in terms of atmosphare, it's 80ies, synthie pop, but not cheesy. Okay, I only know one song from them, but it is really hard to get it out of your head, as long you got accustomed to the strange rythm...."special"...
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: ManicMatt on 25 Mar 2006, 16:17
I have both Mew albums, and I wouldn't describe them as synth pop or eighties style! But atmospheric, oh yes.

Had to butt in there because I felt your description was        mis-leading.

Both albums are great Ozzie, and they both have different sounds to them too!

Wait a minute.. how come the official Mew site doesn't mention them?

*Researches a bit more*

Woah! I'll be darned! There ARE two older albums! Why have Mew kept this quiet? Very strange.

EDIT: And do you have any idea of where I could get them imported from?

Because there are better songs out there than "Aerials"? That's songs okay I suppose..

I like the album it's off, but the last two SOAD albums had too many silly squeaky vocals in it for my liking. (IE the guy that was formally just backing vocals and bass/guitar/whatever.)
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Paper Carnival on 01 Apr 2006, 21:44
System of a Down are not that bad musically, I used to be a huge fan... Not anymore though. The fact that they're big hypocrites is one of the reasons I stopped listening to them, they keep preaching about the System but it's the System that made them rich :=. I think Chop Suey and Spiders are their best songs.

There's tons of better music out there. The band that got my attention off Soad was Disciple - their new stuff is awful, the older stuff rules. I doubt anyone here knows about that band though. Does anyone here know it?

Nothing, Helm has a habit at talking bad about music other people listen to :P. You are not the first person who gets a comment similar to that. And by the way, there was a thread about System of a Down a while ago, so you're not the only person on the board who listens to them anyway. So please ignore that comment...

hah, well fluke, write a livejournal entry about how nobody understands you or something

Guybrush, do you listen to anything that isn't christian? xDisciplex for christ's sake? I didn't think we had many greek christian metalheads. Next you'll tell me you listen to Vomitorial Corpulence or something. At least listen to Discipline offshot band Shockwave. They sing about transformers.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Paper Carnival on 02 Apr 2006, 16:07
Not xDisciplex, that's a different band and I think it got renamed to something new now. I was talking about Disciple, without the "x". I don't listen to them frequently anymore, they're hard rock but their new stuff sounds commercial rock and lost that special vibe they had.

And I do listen to not christian stuff. I don't listen to straight satanic stuff, but I'm totall fine with not christian stuff - I even had arguments with "secular music is bad for you" kind of people. The reason I know more christian bands is that my main people source of music information are christian.

I have Nightwish and Epica but I think I'm over that kind of music. I also have Iced Earth, Pantera, some older stuff (Deep Purple, Scorpions, etc) and a few more. Also, have Blind Guardian, their album Nightfall in Middle Earth is my favourite album I've ever heard but I don't like their other stuff much.

I heard Vomitorial Corpulence before and I have to say that my farts sound better than them.

You have such musical farts that it's already been sampled and put into a song released by McFly.

Hmmm do i listen to any christian bands I wonder? Lets see.. ah yes P.O.D. Payable on death I think. Yes.. I like about half of that album of theirs that I have. Satelliete.

I guess maybe Dark Star may be christian. They did a song that goes "Jesus was my age, when he got nailed..." um there you go!

But Jesus Jones aint a christian rock band, despite their name.

Hi guys,


just wanted to tell you my impression....

Just returned from the Staind gig in Cologne...

The "warm-up" band was Mad Doggin, never heard of them so far...the drummer was excellent, but I did not like the texts about -suicide-killing- etc...A bit too heavy for me...


But as an old Staind fan..I do not need to tell you
about the main act..
It was just excellent!!!
Just simply this "melodic" metal I like..and also the ballads were amazing!

Hope the guys will come back to Germany very soon.

I myself prefer their earlier works. They'd become so *commercial* by that point, that it interfered with their music. Another less well known Rock band with some excellent songs would be Westlife.
If you are not too intimidated by non-english rock, Awaz is a Pakistani band with some excellent soft-core blue punk-acid rock.

Have just read your comments about registring and so on...

Have tried this twice but it did not work...so, please be patient with me!!

Do not want sending any posts regarding AGS and technical problems (as requested in the register formula)  but just simply letting you know perhaps some awesome music ( at least for 2 or 3 of you)

So, especially Helm....
Even though I did not like Meshuggah too much, please don't be angry with me for all time:'(

Try Blue October instead ;D ;D
Hate me today, hate me tomorrow....

They do if you don't have much frame for reference. If you listen to Gorguts and Beatles only, you'll eventually settle to 'both bands use guitars' as their similarity.

Some of my favourite "Rock" songs (in no particular order):

"Dominion" - The Sisters of Mercy
"Burning Down The House" - Talking Heads
"Tales Of Brave Ulysses" - Cream
"Disappointed" - P.I.L
"Personal Jesus" - Depche Mode
"Sea Of Joy" - Blind Faith
"The Man Who Never Was" - Skid Row (the original, irish band. Not the poodle rockers :P)
"Derag Doom" - Horslips.

...

And others. :P

Good taste, that man! or fish...

a few of my favourites:

"Only Shallow" - My Bloody Valentine (personal fave Irish band :))
"Cannonball" - The Breeders
"Safari" - The Breeders (again)
"Seether" - Veruca Salt
"I Feel You" - Depeche Mode
"Falling Away" - The Like
"Love in a Trashcan" - The Raveonettes
"Murdermile" - The Kills
"Leave them All Behind" - Ride
"Sad and Lonely" - Secret Machines
"Agenda Suicide" - The Faint
(EDIT: I can't BELIEVE I forgot this next one, it's probably my all-time favourite song)
and
"Baby You Should Know" - Joy Zipper

And a couple hundred more absolute classics, but we'll stop there. It's not so much a problem of what's a truly great tune, more a case of how to narrow it down.

No, just kidding! This guy may be a bit too directly sometimes, but he knows what he is talking about!

So.....has anyone seen the Eurovision song contest on Saturday?

But he can make me laugh. Ho ho.

Hi Helm,

Let's have dinner together tonight ::)

But joke aside....

Your opinion really interests me..
What do you think of Lordi? Do not want to discuss about the Song contest but about their music....

 This is great rock, isn't it???

Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: ManicMatt on 25 May 2006, 23:22
This is great rock, isn't it???

I can't wait to see Helm's opinion on this band again either!

let me see, not only do I think he's going to say they aint great, but he's also going to say they aint rock.

In other news I got Pink Punk's album. It's the lead singer from One Minute Silence (What does Helm and Petra think of them by the way?) doing rap over electronic and experimental-ish music.

Petra, this post (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/yabb/index.php?topic=26671.msg337832#msg337832) covers my opinion of Lordi.

The only good thing Pink ever did in her life is hire female bassist of Hammers of Misfortune for touring, pay her amazingly well, so in effect bankrolling Hammers and their second AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT album 'The August Engine'.

But nice to know Pink contributed something good in the music world!

"I go to the store and they have EVERYTHING there, all convienient and redy to make. first, I see pudding powder, mix with water and you get pudding, then I saw orange juce powder, just mix with water and you get orange juce. THEN, I saw BABY powder, and I thought, WHAT A COUNTRY!"

Linkin Park are boring, but they used to be my first band that I actually started listening :-[ now their kind of music doesn't interest me anymore.

and Manic Matt, that indeed is not metal or good.

www.purevolume.com/saviourmachine, the song American Babylon is stuck to me. The other songs aren't that good and the older stuff was better...
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Helm on 26 May 2006, 19:48
Savior Machine I and II are the only records of theirs I consider worthwhile. But extremely so. The Legend series are just not something I care to follow very closely, although I do like Pale Horse and a few other choice tracks.

Post by: pipan on 27 May 2006, 22:00
I can't pick one favorite song but here is some of my favorites:

Supertramp - Hide In Your Shell
Supertramp - A Soapbox Opera
The Band - King Harvest
The Band - Stagefright
The Doors - When the Musics Over

I think neither Hendrix nor Page could outmatch Knopfler's solo play in that particular song (after the "like a rollin river" part).

They are all amzing guitarists but I must say I like Robbie Robertson of The Band better than all of them. Ever listened to The Band? Robbie usually keeps his solos pretty short but on Forbidden Fruit he pulls of a long and mind blowing solo.

Yeah, hard to say what is the "best", as there's such a huge selection, and depends on a person's musical tastes and even the mood you might be in at the time.

But I thought this topic was interesting as it reminded me of a recent news-article in which it's suggested that Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" song is now named "The greatest song of all time": http://edition.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/Music/06/27/dylan.stone/index.html

Though it's a good song, I don't know if I'd call it "The Greatest"...

It sure is a great song but I think one have to have lived in america during the 60's to fully understand the power behind the lyrics. Did you know that there is a full book about this song? I have been thinking about buying it.

I have a hard time trying to narrow it down like this.. because most of the things would probably be classified as Jazz..

Best ROCK songs(In no particular order)
Frank Zappa-Black Napkins
Bob Dylan-Hurricane
Frank Zappa-Muffin Man(The Bongo Fury version)
Joe Walsh-Funk #49
Joe Walsh-Eyes of the Confessor
Steely Dan-Bodhisattva
Golden Earring-Mad Love's Comin'
Led Zepellin-In my Time of Dying
Budgie-Napolean Bona Parts 1&2 (Along with the entire Impeckable album)
Allman Brothers-You can't Lose what you Never Had

By the way, Argent's version of God Gave Rock n' Roll to you is the best.....


Have you ever heard of Dylans version of In my Time of Dying? It is also really good but I think Led Zeppelins version is better though.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: on 28 May 2006, 20:48
Hi Helm,

so glad you did not eat me ;D

Just listening to Lordi for the 10th time or so....
"The Monsterican Dream"

It's going to be better after each time listening to it....

So....as you ask...

I have one album here by One Minute Silence..
"One Lie fits all"

Not my kind of music....

At least you gave them a shot Petra! Mind you, "one lie fits all" isn't very good, "buy now.. saved later" is. (Which rather annoyingly wasn't on that myspace link)

Got me there. What kind of music is Blue October?
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Paper Carnival on 29 May 2006, 14:53
Wow, this has become the Ask Helm thread.

I got re-addicted to The Spirit by Divinefire a couple of hours after my previous post :P. That song is plain awesome, it's like 10 minutes long but not in any way repetitive, with solos and 3 different vocalists. I don't know what genre I'd put it, maybe heavy power metal describes it but it has also a doom metal part.

The only problem is the cheesiness of the lyrics, but besides that it's just perfect... Providing that your ears can bare the heaviness and understand the melody. Also, another problem is that it relies too much on synths, which most metalheads (with me not included) find annoying.

http://media.putfile.com/The-Spirit if anyone wants to hear it.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Helm on 29 May 2006, 15:08
Guybrush, since you get a boner over jesus, listen to Forsaken - Dominaeon. Some of the best epic doom metal since Candlemass kickstarted the thing, and the lyrics are WHITE AS FUCK. Really awesome 'god is coming, repent sinners for you will SUFFER' type of stuff. Real conviction.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Paper Carnival on 30 May 2006, 09:58
I hate you Helm, I want you to go to hell and SUFFER ;D

Bah, like I said, I don't like the lyrics of that song much. Yeah I enjoy white metal more than secular,  but I dislike cheesy and too direct lyrics, it turns me off

I'll check out Forsaken, but if the lyrics are really like that I doubt I'm going to like it much :P
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Helm on 30 May 2006, 10:40
Shut up you're going to love them, and you totally get all sweaty when some metal singer shouts about god. The fact that you just said 'secular' and 'metal' in a row shows where you're coming from. Just admit it. God gives you a boner.

Listen to Forsaken.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Paper Carnival on 30 May 2006, 11:00
Hey it's not my fault if the evil american protestants brainwashed me to split music into christian and secular even though I dislike that distinction :(

I would listen to Forsaken, but I can't seem to find samples anywhere. My google skills have failed me.

Post by: ManicMatt on 30 May 2006, 11:08

I'm talking about Forsaken from Malta, not the US band. I'll upload a song for you and then you'll love it so much you'll go and order the actual album.

Post by: Paper Carnival on 30 May 2006, 12:49
There are actually at least 8 bands called Forsaken, hehe. I searched for Forsaken Dominaeon but wouldn't find a thing, and that USA band is not epic doom metal...

Anyway, indeed it's quite awesome, thank you :o I'll put it in my "next" list, now that I've been an adult for 2 weeks I'll get my own internet card very soon 8)
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: ManicMatt on 30 May 2006, 14:49
Ah, then my apologies Mr Peepwood.

I'll play the song Helm but I've never liked doom metal before..

*Plays the song*

Oh, I was expecting something mega slow. Isn't doom normally very slow? What am I thinking of? I once heard a song by "electric Wizard" I think and it just droned on in mediocrity.

He has one of those eighties Iron Maiden kinda voices, but I'm getting used to it.

Yeah, I can't fault them, but they don't appeal to me, maybe my brother would like them.

Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Helm on 30 May 2006, 16:15
There's all types of doom. Epic Doom Metal (Helm favourite. Started with Candlemass' Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, other followers include Sorcerer, Memory Garden, Solitude Aeturnus. Traditionally speaking, if a band is playing Epic Doom Metal, they're at least very good. This genre doesn't seem to have mediocre bands) and is a bit faster than most stuff, since it's epic and power-metal-ish usually. There's Sabbath and Sabbath-clones going from 'traditional doom' to full-out stoner, a good example of such music being Kyuss, the first few Monster Magnet albums and of course, Sleep - Dopesmoker. Then there's DoomDeath or Romantic Doom with the british brigade of Anathema (first two), My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost (first two) which is quite slow, but with grinding fast passages usually, a lot of bands suffering from the  'slow death metal', syndrome. Then there's Funeral Doom, by the Finns, with Skepticism, Thergothon, Tyranny and the like. This is your 30bpm Doom where there's just a tympani and church organ and a guitar going BZZZZZ. Australians dISEMBOWELMENT are a very important band affiliated with the Funeral scene but not exactly fitting in (their most distinctive thing being ripping blastbeat parts with pretty acoustic guitar strumming, then cutting into SLOW DEATH for 3 minutes, then repeat), along with the mighty Esoteric and Unholy. Then there's Drone Doom, which is just ambient music by metalheads, usually sans drumming completely, like Sunn0))) and Khanate.

Electric Wizard were great on 'Come My Fanatics' in my opinion, only. 'Return Trip' destroyed my mind. I'd say they were still traditional doom, only very heroin-impaired at that stage.

One could do worse than listen to music by any of the bands mentioned in this post, if they feel they're interested in Doom.

And to describe Blue October is really difficult..

it is no metal, but melodic rock, with unconventinal lyrics...

Just read your comment about the different kinds of metal...
Did not understand too much I must admit.
But I understood Anathema ( the special guest on my Porcupine Tree gig last year, this was amazing!)
And of course Paradise Lost ( the main act on my gig last year ;D) And this was just great!!!!

Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: ManicMatt on 31 May 2006, 16:26
Petra: Blue october sort of remind me of Incubus in a way. the funk. The scratches. I like the intense vocalist.

Oh this next song is utterly different. Ecletic!

Yeah is this enjoyable stuff.

Okay, i found a link with samples of the best album One Minute Silence ever did. It's way more energetic than "one lie fits all". If you don't like that then nevermind!

But ok, thanks for the recommendation anyway :)

Did not want to be too critical...but The One Minute Silence stuff isn't my kind of music though...sorry.... :(

You're a member! I never thought I'd see the day!

And it's his name. Ozzy Osbourne. The guy from Black Sabbath, now a solo artist. And his bassist has a sort of band now that I do like, that's called by his nickname, GZR, and the album is nice.

Give yourself a picture now!

I found some other bands beginning with "B" )have sorted them according to the beginning letter, lol)

So here goes:

Unholy by Brainstorm
Times and Unknown Waters by Blazing Eternity

or something to relax
Digital Ash in a digital Urn by Bright Eyes

So now you may all kill me... 8)

Haha, that's why my record collection is already sorted A-Z! So I can find what I'm looking for!

I shall spare you all a list of my albums owned starting with a b, as that would be a list of 28 albums. Wait, 29 albums, I forgot to count Bjork's greatest hits that is in my "small digipaks" selection.

And I don't own any Black Sabbath, and I'm not ashamed to say it!

Even though I'm still listening to "History for Sale" by Blue October....sorry..this is my favourite band at the moment ;D

But would be glad to receive any new recommendations!!!
Even Metal would be nice....

Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out".

Sum 41's "Fat Lip".

And any other song on Guitar Hero game. Except for "I Love Rock and Roll" and that other girl song.

"Bark at the Moon" is king.

Petra, be prepared for an amazing show. I saw them recently and it was great.

Best rock songs, eh? What an unfair question. Stay Hungry, The Price, God of Thunder, Poison, He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask), Mr. Killjoy, Pet the Destroyer, Rock the Hell Outta You, Airbag, Electioneering, Otherside, Can't Stop... all by various artists, and the list could go on and on and on and...

Well, I'm sorry you got offended at something that petty. Not meaning to offend anyone, but I'm wondering how you could take a band seriously who think they're monsters and are hardly even metal.

Do you think they won Eurovision because they had great musical talent? No, it was the novelty of them. They were entertaining. Now, I'm not meaning to start a fight here or make enemies, I didn't think you would get offended at a light-hearted comment like that, but obviously you did.

Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Pet Terry on 30 Jun 2006, 12:25
Nah, I'm just tired of hearing that. Because, you know, you're not the only one to say something like that.

Your comment "and are hardly even metal" makes me giggle. Because they dress up as monsters, they have to play (death) metal? They play melodic hard rock as their idols do, Alice Cooper, KISS, Twisted Sister, W.A.S.P... They all had huge shows and masks, but would you classify their music as metal? I wouldn't.

And what if they won the Eurovision compo because of the novelty of them? It's just an Eurovision song contest, nothing more. There are still thousands of fans out there who enjoy the music as well. Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered to sing along to all of their songs at their gig. I wouldn't listen or buy their albums if I didn't like their music. The characters just add to the the whole thing. Personally I think that when I go see a band, I also want to see something else than just a band playing there on the stage in jeans and t-shirt. All the gimmicks, were they monster suits or whatever, make the whole experience much more interesting for me. But maybe that just me.

This is going way off-topic now. If you wish to discuss this any further, PM me instead of posting here.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I don't hate people who don't like same things as me. I understand that people have different tastes and I'm fine with that. It just beats me why some people make so damn big thing about stuff they dislike.
Title: Re: Best ROCK song ever!
Post by: Petra on 02 Jul 2006, 18:59
Have to agree with Petteri..

Lordi play melodic hard rock, otherwise I would not like them.
Forget about about the monster masks..they are just a part of the show which some people might need...but ok..not necessary ...

But for me only  the music counts...and Lordi are performing well ;D
And they were the only one who made me turn out the music much louder during the Contest....( have been on my sofa and only listened to the music with my eyes closed...so without getting influenced by some dancers or some show!!!  As this was a SONG Contest and not a strip show!!!)

And I also accept all other opinions..good that the music tastes are that different...
However...never play Modern Talking...lol

But I have watched "In Flames" last weekend on TV and promptly ordered the "Reroute to Remain"-album ;D
This is something I never heard.... Awesome!! Metal at it's best :o

That's strange, this seems like a thread I'd dive on.

Anyway, best rock song ever would probs be Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen if you asked a member of the general public.

BUT

To me the best rock song ever is Bob Dylan - Hurricane, only cos its a big "fuck you" to the racist attitudes of America.  By making the story of Rubin Carter's sentencing seem ridiculous, it popularised the notion that it was unjust.

Best punk song ever is Holiday in Cambodia or Rock the Casbah.  Take your pick.

I Beg to Differ. In a Rock song you are generally looking for some balls out riff and a baddass solo. you say to yourself thats f*****g rockin'. rock bands do have thier "Ballads" but if i wanted to let someone hear "THE GREATEST ROCK SONG OF ALL TIME", it wouldnt be "stairway..."

What about "T.N.T" and "If you want blood, you got it!" by AC/DC

Mine is "Fairies Wear Boots boots" or "Tommorows dream" by Sabbath

Okay.

Stairway To Heaven is one of THEEEEEE most overrated songs of all time.

Now I'm a huge Zeppelin fan, I even like this song a great deal, but they have had so many songs that are so much better.

People say IV is the best, I'd say II is the best, closely followed by I & Physical Graffitti.

I'd even go as far to say there are songs on IV that are better than Stairway (the first three, for example).

Stairway To Heaven has this legendary status, and I can't really see why. It's up there with Bohemian Rhapsody & Imagine.

As for my favourite song? Well, that's a little too difficult for me to say, I like different music when I'm in different moods. One day I'll be in the mood to listen to "Six Shooter" by Mondo Generator or "The Way Of The Men Of The Stuff" by The Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster, the next I may prefer to listen to "Aurora" by the Foo Fighters or "Castles Made Of Sand" by Jimi Hendrix. I have a biiiiiig music collection. >_<

I'll challange you. I dare  ;D I think Queen is still better than Led zeppelin. honestly I never understood why stairway to heaven would ever be anything special. Or even queens bohemian rhapsody for that matter. Both bands made tons of better songs in my opinion. But I gues that's just me.

BEST 3 ROCK SONGS EVER

queen- One Vision (definetly the very best rocking song ever. It just screams pure rock :D)
gun's and roses- november rain
jerry c- guitar cannon in D

That would be sacrlidge (Thats not how you write that) (I know) (So why did you write it like that)
(I don't know the right way) (What?) (Stop talking to yourself) (Sorry)

No particular order ... I think

Man on the silver mountain (Rainbow)
Hells Bells (AC\DC)
For those about to rock (AC\DC)
Smoke on the water (duh!)
Legacy (The Gone Jackals)

+ a million other

Gadzooks this is tricky.... someone should compile a list of the 20 most mentioned songs and make a poll, so we can decide once and for all the what the greatest rock song of the community's choice is. (That was a weird sentance) (Be quiet I'm not talking to you) (.... *sulk*)

Out of the Frying Pan (And into the Fire)

The Meat Loaf version.

Every song on Bad for Good is better than any subsequent Meat Loaf cover except for that one.

Jim Steinman can write on helluva good song.

*WARNING: RANT AHEAD*

Jim Steinman wrote Bat Out of Hell -- The biggest selling debut album of all time.

He wrote Total Eclipse of the Heart (yes, I know that song sucks...) and Making Love (Out of Nothing at All), and because of this became the only songwriter ever to have two songs on the Billboard Top 10--One and Two.

So why is it this guy isn't the most amazingly popular guy in the world?

That would require Bad to be Jackson's debut album--which it wasn't.

And if you missed debut, the biggest selling of all time is Their Greatest Hits, an Eagles compilation from '76.

The almost only times I listened to Rock, in my life, were when I was playing a game from the GTA series.

Now, since you are still reading this, I have decided to finally tell you what is in my opinion the best ROCK song ever! The bad thing is that I can't remember its name and the band.

Now, if you are STILL reading this, it had lyrics something like " in the desert you can't remember your name..". Can you tell me what's the song?

Everlong - Foo Fighters

If you've never heard it, do yourself a favour and have a listen. It sends shivers down my spine, I even bought a guitar mainly intending to learn to play it. Not only that, but the acoustic version is a good one to play to a lady friend.  ;)

I'm going to watch them in concert in April, and that song is always last... can't wait!

"No one Knows" is good , but I prefer it as a string tribute.

I usually don't venture into the popular threads, but I failed a dice roll and had to go in this direction... Or just happened to.

Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana

I'm surprised this only came up once. It's somewhere around the top of the stuff I spontaneously thought of when I read the title of this thread.

However, I think it's stupid to name a "best" anything in music, except in very special circumstances. "THE BEST ROCK SONG" is not a special circumstance.

I suspect the motivation behind many nominations here tends to be nostalgia. At least it would be for me. That's why, although I deeply adore Frank Zappa's musicianship (including the most blatantly "rock" of his music), I really wouldn't mention anything by him in this context. Since it's basically impossible for me to relate to the question truly candidly (What's the best Bach fugue? The best Beethoven piano sonata? Best rock song? Why would you even ask that and expect a serious reply?), I take it more as a kind of drunken hyperbole: "Hey, guys... this, ah, is like THE BEST ROCK SONG EVER." And that ought to be said about something like Bohemian Rhapsody, or Smoke On The Water (although with time I've come to hate the latter more than it deserves)--something with a high nostalgia-to-objectivity ratio. And I'm probably most likely to agree with an answer of that sort, even though if I had to go live on a desert island with only one "rock song" with me, something like "Montana" would kick the crap out of most of them. My appreciation of the latter is perhaps too sober.

Whatever; the synopsis of my opinion is still that it's all stupid. ^_^

Isn't that what boys do? Make pointless lists of everything? I should know, I make them all the time ;)

But what the hey, I might have said it before in this thread, and I still think "Get Down Lover" by the Blues Explosion kicks ass.

Out of Sonic Youth's back catalogue, I'd probably go for 'Sunday'.
Awesome song.

I wouldn't choose one song if I had to introduce someone to rock. Rather, I'd have them listen to tracks 9 (You Never Give Me Your Money) to track 16 (The End) off of the Beatles' Abbey Road.

I'm agreeing with grim107. I mean there are lots of bands and lots of styles. I mean I like Beatles totally, and yet hear Def Leppard.

Wrong. Their early stuff may have been considered pop/rock, but at least for the last two albums, they were just considered rock.

Well it is rock, but rock of those times. Much of that stuff might be considered pop today...not to say that "pop" is in any way a negative thing, but it has gotten a negative conotation in the last decade (or two) cause it's been mixed up with other stuff.
Same as you might say early metal of the 60ies is now looked as rock and doesn't really have a lot to do with heavy metal today, maybe by some lyrics.
In any case, what I wanted to say is that definitions of genres change over time, so Calin is right about pop (especially the early stuff), but also grim is right about those being rock songs.

Is this going to be greatest rock song thread like -> my favourite band + song that sounds most like rock?
If that's the case then to prove my point: U2 - Bullet the blue sky

Okay. I used to refuse the whole concept of one BEST ROCK SONG of all times. But I have been proven wrong, oh so wrong. I have discovered the BEST ROCK SONG, and there will be no discussion. There just can't be!

Montrose - Space Station #5

I mostly listen to metal, but I don't count that as rock. When it comes to rock I can't pick between these two:

Go with the flow by Queens of the stone age.
and
Supa Scoopa and the Mighty Scoop by Kyuss.

Which is odd as I'm not really a big fan of Josh Homme ::)

Creating an energetic rock song actually isn't that hard. Shredding for a heavy metal song is more difficult than most people think unless you just want a generic sound.

I think it would be either "Paint It Black" by the Stones, or "Where Is My Mind" by The Pixies.
All Along The Watchtower is pretty great too (I'm talking about Jimi's version of course).

Talking Heads - Once In a Lifetime (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFLiKLoxWD8). Best. Song. Ever.
Or maybe it's The Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eF_CQGHqzts) - I can't really decide. But it's definitely one of these two :D
