    Rap wouldn’t be what it is today if it weren’t for rock.

    P.S. Modern mainstream rap sucks. If you want ART, you should try Run-D.M.C.

    Kashmir is top 5 material.:(

    Its true rap wouldn’t be what it is if it weren’t for rock. why do you think its so easy for rap songs today to be turned into rock songs

  5. desertshield56 | Jan 2, 2009 | Reply

    i believe that rock is the only reason rap is what it is today. honestly, i cant stand mainstreet rap, but if you throw some heavy drums and electric guitar in the mix, ill listen to that crap all day long

  6. Oatmeal | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    Thanks for posting the list. Time to get all of the songs!

  7. dumbego | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    this has got to be one of the worst lists i have ever seen. vh1 has never made a good list, but really. welcome to the jungle gets number one? back in black gets number 2? whole lotta love gets higher than kashmir? jimi hendrix doesn’t break the top 20, let alone the top 10? what the fuck was vh1 thinking?

  8. chris | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    Bawitdaba should be higher great trash metal song,although if a Kid Rock song was on their it should have been I Am The Bullgod way better than Bawitdaba

    If you voted for twisted sister,quiet riot,bon jovi,def lappard or poison you should be shot the 80’s were gay except ac/dc,van halen and aerosmith

    back in black im tired of that song its a easy riff and a repetative song, let their be rock is the best ac/dc song period.

    Smells Like Teen Spirit should be demoted for ripping off Boston (More Than A Feeling) it was Kid Rock’s All Summer Long (Sweet Home Alabama) or American Bad Ass (Sad But True) way before those songs came out.

    Hey Joe isnt really a hard rock song Purple Haze or Voodoo Child is and both better than Hey Joe which should be way further back.

    Where is Rage Against The Machine at?

    Lastly seriously Twisted Sister No 17 list lost all credibilty esp with no Iron Man listed or Black Dog or Stranglehold etc

  9. Tha-Pie | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    “C’mon Everybody”, where is Humble Pie on this list? I submit 3 songs in order of preference - “C’mon Everybody”, “Hot-n-Nasty”, and “30 Days in the Hole” - all from the “Smokin” LP from 1972. It’s old school but it doesn’t get any better!

  10. AiC = greatest ever | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    Alice in Chains - Would? at #88 is a joke. Easily top ten.

  11. Dave | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    Where the fuck is Stranglehold?

  12. savedarfur | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    honestley, if you dont enjoy this music then dont waste your time posting comments about it.

    i dont understand why you are arguing on a comment board for an article about rap. take your hateful crap somewhere else becuase nobody wants it here

  13. Burns | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    Rap sucks. But where the hell is NIN in the countdown. Some of this music is freakin’ gay. You can’t tell me that foreigner and Kansas actually rocks. Fuck that.

  14. Burns | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    What about Pantera. I’m pretty sure they’re more metal than some pansy ass Bon Jovi.

  15. Burns | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    How the hell is Enter Sandman better than… Let’s see One for example. What ever happened to Master of Puppets?

  16. stephanie | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    This is definitely the worst countdown. I just watched it and I got all excited to see Welcome to the Jungle as number one. Wtffffff? I mean it’s a good song but it does not deserve the number one spot. No the Doors? You’ve got to be kidding me. Jim Morrison is the epitome of rock. Without him, there would be no one. Buck Cherry even making the first hour is ridiculous. I agree that Kashmir should have been higher than Whole Lotta Love. And as far as you bitches ranting about rap being better, if it wasn’t for rock rap wouldn’t be around so stfu. Rock’s been around much much longer anyway.

  17. stephanie | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    One more thing, do not blame vh1. Blame the dumb asses that vh1 let vote for this countdown. Well at least blame them more than vh1 is to be. Also, coming from a teenager I guarantee that a bunch of nimrod twenty some year olds and other teenagers voted thinking they know what rock is when they really don’t. Pathetic? I think so.

    No Rage Against the Machine?

  19. rick | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    have you idiots never listened to helter skelter??

  20. clay hammer | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    this list is bullshit. no tool, no rage against the machine, no nine inch nails, no primus!? god forbid they give credit where credit is due…cocksuckers! at least they still acknowledge bands like alice in chains and the smashing pumpkins. fuck…

  21. clay hammer | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    i fuckin hate the world!

  22. Shawnt | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    Man they had some great songs on here…but IMO Disturbed should have been featured…they gets no love from the voters…that sucks they are a HUGE band…atleast can I get “Down With The Sickness” on here? geez!

    Stranglehold should have made the list over Cat Scratch Fever!

    this list has a few holes definitely!

  23. Nick | Jan 3, 2009 | Reply

    I couldn’t agree more with the people who said Rage Against the Machine should be on there. The list is HARD ROCK and several of the songs on there are not hard rock. How the hell does Rage not make it on there? What is Rage’s music too political? Don’t get me wrong Everlong is a cool song but not hard rock. Eye of the Tiger made the list really? Wow really need to check to make sure they are hard rock before you put out a list that says top 100 hard rock songs.

  24. scott | Jan 4, 2009 | Reply

    C’mon…this list was basically about Hard Rock only…not just, not a lot of our favorite bands were gonna make the list. Hell, I was most surprised Staind didn’t make the list…or Pink floyd.

  25. Big Richie | Jan 4, 2009 | Reply

    Bulls on Parade isn’t really a song you turn up in your car unless your me or a metal head, while something like Guerilla Radio is something that is blasted, That should definately be on there. Its way harder then half the crap on here. In the 80’s Twisted Sister was huge and I wanna Rock is a damn good song, but it shouldn’t be in the top 20. I’m sorry but this list is a joke and loses any and all credability with talk to me dirty being on there. I can go around and ask anyone, hey you know talk to me dirty by poison and I bet you half the people would say who were from the 80’s and say No? How the hell isn’t Voodoo child on there, that rift is retardedly powerful. Does anyone here beside me have a problem with the rollin’s band being on this list? As much as I hate Linkin Park…why aren’t they on there aswell? Placing psuede rock/rap bands on there but not linkin park and yet every time a psuedo rock/rap band comes up they mention Linkin Park…gee…way to go VH1, fuckwads. Pantera again should be on there with Walk, or Cowboys from hell. SOAD shoulda been on there…

    Green Day?? Poison?? Bret Michaels??

    Where is Disturbed, Pantera, Tool, RATM, Godsmack, Slayer?
    What about Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage or Outshined

  28. fieldysdreams | Jan 4, 2009 | Reply

    ac/dc and guns and roses should have not have had the top two spots.. espically with korn at 48? come on.. and they even beat out led zeppelin.. i dont think this is right..

  29. Nick | Jan 4, 2009 | Reply

    I watched this list for hours waiting for Rage Against The Machine, tool, or even system of a down but they never came. Kid Rock, Poison, Foreigner, Europe seriously? I Thought VH1 would’ve got it right born of a broken man, bull on parade, killing in the name of, Boom, nope not one. Great job VH1…

  30. A | Jan 4, 2009 | Reply

    Where’s “She’s So Heavy” by The Beatles?

  31. Mb | Jan 5, 2009 | Reply

    If they could put free bird on there they shoulda put hotel California on there it’s got a kickass solo for a slow song also quit bitching bout how the list turned out I think the list was awesome ecxept for a few songs they did a great job on the list so quit the bitchin

  32. John Doe | Jan 5, 2009 | Reply

    Who cares about the order of the list?….its 100 great tunes that we all grow up with. Doesn’t everybody own a ipod nowadays, make up your own list, have a beer, blast the tunes, and party it up. Rock on Bitche$

  33. Cmills | Jan 5, 2009 | Reply

    Needs Rage Against the Machine… badly
    Needs System of a Down… badly, not to mention Disturbed and maybe Linkin Park.
    Smashing Pumpkins should be much higher and half the songs on here are not even hard rock. I about cringed at the top 100 songs of the 90s with all the shit pop songs on the list, but this one may be worse because the category is hard rock and songs like Final Countdown made it… All I ask is that just once my favorite bands get some mainstream recognition. I guess it is just my dream that everyone will realize that lil wayne and carrie underwood are no talent hacks and the real talent lies within rock n’ roll…

    I’m glad that SOAD and rage didn’t make it…… I don’t like that shit. But the list couldve been better.

    Where’s Nickelback’s hitsongs like “If everyone cared” or “Rockstar” ????

  37. patrick | Jan 13, 2009 | Reply

    A little surprised that Everlong got as high as it did. Also I believe that Rage against the machine’s Bulls on parade was not on the list. . . .also no Disturbed Down with the sickness . . . Even though I cant stand Rage against the machine they did make an impression on modern rock

  38. patrick | Jan 13, 2009 | Reply

    and Nickelback went pop

  39. amanda | Jan 15, 2009 | Reply

    i found this almost unwatchable because that pansy-ass brett michaels was hosting. any guy who wears more makeup than i do, has obviously had botox injected in his lips, and is a male whore-slut (not in a cool, rockstar way but in a “i love new york” way) has no business being anywhere near hard rock. or rock of any sort.

    and don’t get me started on that cracker, white-trash song stealer whose name i won’t even mention. of all the bands snubbed, HE gets on the list. ridiculous.

    I was watching this and I was expecting Loverboy (Working for the Weekend, among others) to be on there somewhere. I was dissapointed they weren’t, but I chalk that up to them being a Canadian band and not as popular in the States. But what the real travesty was was the absence of “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf. That is THE definative hard rock song and coined the phrase “Heavy Metal” in the first place. I was half expecting it to be #1, and it should have at least made the Top 10. Instead, it’s not on the list at all.


  51. peter | Feb 7, 2009 | Reply

    if you don’t like the songs on the list then you should have voted otherwise. it was the people choice, and just because they don’t agree with your personal favourites dont mean you need to shit you pants about it.

    do us all a favor and grow up
