8. My Generation by The Who
1. This song charted #2 in the UK, but never made the charts in the US.

2. The BBC refused to play this on the radio, because they did not want to offend people with stutters.

3. This song was released in 1965.

The reason I chose this song is because it captured the message to the youth of the 1960's era were trying to convey, and that message was that "adults don't understand". It was very unusual for that time because of the stutter in the beginning, and was also covered by many different famous artists, such as Greenday.
9. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
1. This song was released in 1991.

2. This song reached number 6 in America, and number 7 in the UK.

3. Kurt Cobain, the lead singer, committed suicide 3 years after the song was released.
The reason I chose Smells Like Teen Spirit is because it helped start the hair band metal phase. Also was one of the first alternative songs that was popular. It also helped Nirvana get on the map.

1. Stairway to Heaven was never released as a single.

2. Many critics trashed this song when it first came out, but it later became a huge hit.

3. It was released in 1971.
The reason I chose this song is because it is arguably one of the most famous rock songs of all time written by one of the famous rock bands of all time. The poetic lyrics are revolutionary for the this time and still are. There is even many rumors about this song, which proves that Stairway To Heaven gets people thinking.
7. Hotel California by The Eagles
1. This song is about material and excess.

2. It references many different artists and other songs.

3. Hotel California charted number 1 in USA.
The reason I chose this song is because it has very weird and different lyrics, which made it a very big song for that time. It also references many popular artists and songs of that time period, so that fact made this song a very good representation of that era.
1. This song is about a band member with severe mental illness. His name is Syd Barrett.

2. This song was released in 1975.

3. This song only hit 68 on the charts in UK.
I chose this song because it has an unforgettable message, and is one of the greatest Pink Floyd songs of all time. Pink Floyd is an iconic band and deservesa spot on this list.
10. Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd
And the Best Song Ever is... Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
1. This song was written by Max Freedman and by James Myers.

2. Charted number 1 in both USA and UK.

6. Yesterday by The Beatles
I chose this song because it is the most covered song, and has been remade over 3,000 times. Also it is an iconic song by an iconic band, and is the first pop song to use classical instruments, which makes it even more revolutionary.
5. Don't Stop Believing by Journey
1. Released in 1981

2. Known to have an unusual structure, since the chorus is at the end.

3. Reached number 9 in the US, and number 6 in the UK.
The reason I chose Don't Stop Believing is because it is an extremely well known, and recognizable. It has been in many movies, and kind of captured the music style in this era. Also, it is one of the only songs that has gained popularity over time.
4. Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and the Comets
The reason I chose this song is because it is one of the first real Rock and Roll songs, aside from some of the early blues and jazz tunes, and definitely deserves a place in rock history.
2. Thriller by Michael Jackson
There is no doubt that this song deserves to be on the Top 10 Best Songs Ever list. It is an extremely well know song written by a hugely iconic artist. The music video is memorable, the song is memorable, and overall the whole production of this song is memorable. But not just that, this song has a big history too.
3. Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones

The reason I chose this particular song is because it is the first Rolling Stones song to reach number one on the charts. Also it was a song that helped shape rock and roll and helped it become more "rock" than "roll".
