"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'.
