    VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs

    This past week, VH1 paid tribute to the ultimate rock gods by counting down the "100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs". The five-part compilation, hosted by POISON singer Bret Michaels, featured the most awesome guitar-driven, head-banging jams in rock history — from AC/DC to LED ZEPPELIN and everything in between. VH1 took viewers behind-the-scenes of the greatest hard rock hits with special rarely-seen footage and brand new exclusive interviews with rock's most famous faces. METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, NIRVANA, THE WHO, VAN HALEN, and LED ZEPPELIN are just some of the legendary artists that were profiled.

    Each new hour-long episode of VH1's "100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs" premiered on Monday, December 29 - Friday, January 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The series gave viewers the chance to rock out to the 100 best and most influential hard rock songs of all time. Along with the revelation of each anthem's back-story, the five-night event also featured updates on where various rock idols are today. The countdown allowed viewers to reminisce about the glory days of guitar smashing and party crashing, roadies and groupies, and everything else hard rock stands for.

    Welcome to The Junge is nowhere near GnR's best song.

    Enter Sandman is nowhere near Metallica's best.

    Run to the Hills is nowhere near Maiden's best.

    All imo of course.
    Same


    Highway Star is far better than Smoke On The Water


    And i'm a little annoyed that there is no Oasis on the list whereas The Darkness are on it.

    Re: VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs

    All these lists are pathetic, whoever they're by. Smoke On The Water is incredibly overrated. Highway Star is easily their best, like Gonzo said. Welcome To The Jungle being number 1 is laughable. Any list with Lynyrd at 26 is laughable. Any list with Foo Fighters at 28 is laughable. Green Day above Dio is pathetic. Kid Rock making this list is pathetic. This list is a total joke really.

    EDIT: HEAVEN & HELL AT 81?? WHO WROTE THIS BULLCRAP!?
