    That Pink Floyd's Money didn't make the list is mind boggling. That no song from DSOTM is on the list is amazing.

    No Pearl Jam? I'd at least expect to see Jeremy on the list, even though it's nowhere close to being one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs.

    Walk This Way is on the list twice which shouldn't be based on RS's definition of definitive recorded performance. I think they should take one of them off the list and slip Queen's We Are the Champions in there....to me a glaring omission.

    Spirit in the Sky...in the 300's? And Outkast at 180? I like Outkast, but it's absurd to put Hey-Ya anywhere on the list, especially not at 180 ahead of Dylan's Knockin on Heavans Door and a host of other classic and significant songs. The song is barely a year old, and very few people are going to remember it 5 years from now, let alone when the song is 25+ years old like so much of the music on that list.

    These lists never make too much sense to me. Never really thought "Rock Around the Clock" was even a good song, much less great...much, much less the No. 5 of all time. Many of the songs are just a matter of taste though and will result, rightfully as far as I'm concerned, in the quibbling monster coming out of his cave.

    whether or not you agree with the list, the issue is worth picking up for the backstory behind the songs. it's very interesting to see how the song came about etc.

    at least depeche made the list...somewhere in 150 range iirc. [​IMG]

    I completely agree. This song will be completely forgotten in several years if not already.

    How'd that happen. I responded to Dennis's posting and it ended up being listed two messages before his. :b

    I always grin when these lists are brought up and the discussion always revolves around This list is lame, where's (X)? I can't believe (X) was rated number (X) ahead of (X)!!!

    Now I'm gonna do it, though:[​IMG]

    Only three songs by Elvis Costello? And his highest is number 284? Unbelievable!!!

    This list isn't too good. At least Smells Like Teen Spirit is in the top 10, but there is a huge lack of other Nirvana songs. Also I am very peeved about how there were no DSOTM songs on there, very few AC/DC songs, 1 Ramones song, and 1 Metallica song.

    I should be after his message, but I'm one before. This is so strange.

    You've never heard of Elvis Costello, Dennis? For real? He's been around for ~25 years from the New Wave era onwards...

    I pretty much stopped listening to rock after the Beatles broke up. Heck that was over 30 years ago.

    The Rolling Stone lists are the most important and accurate list of all time. Anyone questioning the content just does not understand today's music.









    Just kidding. [​IMG]

    I would recommend some of the pop/rock albums featured in the audiophile journals. They often find better crafted if less visible albums.
