In this debate we post Rock songs... Rock songs that in our own opinion are the greatest of all time.

Voters will decide which opponent posted the best songs.

Round 1 will just be the general acceptance of the debate and the posting of your first Rock song choice.

Rounds 2-4 will be a posting of 1 song each round. A description of any reasoning behind picking the song will be permitted, but not required.

Round 5 will be the posting of your favorite Rock song choice, followed by your opinion of all Rock song choices that were posted by your opponent.

Let the show begin!!!

My first choice for best Rock song of all time will have to be....

Song name - Simpleman

I take your Lynyrd and meet you with a Skynyrd.

Awesome! I look forward to having this entertaining debate!

Song name - Pour some sugar on me

Artist name - Def Leppard
CosmicAlfonzo

Con

It's hard to get greasier than a song that involves being covered in sugar, peaches, and love.

Here is an epic by Frank Zappa that is even less subtle. It's a song about Terry Bozzio(the drummer at the time.. He's actually singing and drumming at the same time) falling in love with a photograph of the very effeminate looking guitarist of another rock group. Lyrics are borderline obscene, and the musicianship is amazing, more so when you realize that this is a live recording...

Song- Punky's Whips
Artist- Frank Zappa

Gotta love this song!

Con

A list of the greatest rock songs would not be complete without Jimi Hendrix.

It was hard to pick something by him... I could have picked something obvious.. My first choice was "Power of Soul" off of band of gypsies for the intro alone, which is completely ball shattering, but went with this instead due to it being a better song overall in my opinion. This is a pretty underrated track off of "Electric Ladyland"

Song- Come (Let The Good Times Roll)
Artist- Jimi Hendrix
Debate Round No. 3

This song is a classic.

Artist - Bon Jovi

Song - Wanted Dead or Alive
CosmicAlfonzo

Con

Here is that last one, forgot the link.

This next one I shouldn't have to explain. If you can't feel the rock in it, you're probably dead on the inside.

Song- The Ocean

Artist- Led Zeppelin
Debate Round No. 4

This is my number one choice for Greatest Rock Song of All Time! It's Legendary!

Artist - KISS

Song - Rock n' Roll All Night
CosmicAlfonzo

Con

So much I could have put up, It makes me second guess some of my choices. There definitely are harder rockers out there. It's hard to just boil it down to 5... But my choice for number 1 is indeed legendary. If you don't feel the rock in it, you've gotta be dead.

Song- Won't Get Fooled Again
Artist- The Who

My fellow apostle of the rock neglected to give his opinions of the songs I put up, so my last words to everyone are.. If it sounds and/or feels rockin' to you, it is!

I mean, Simple Man is a great song and all, but I don't understand why you posted the Shinedown version. It's not terrible, I guess, but it's super white. It's got no soul compared to the Skynyrd version.

5 rounds went by quicker than I thought it would.

I'm honestly shocked I don't have any votes though, even though there was so much more I wanted to put in there(No Stones, no Sabbath, no Rush, no room! gaaah).

I could have swapped out maybe 2 of them. Still like my list more, but hey, it's my list. >,>

Reasons for voting decision: Pro knocks it out of the park on every round. I like the original "Simple Man" better, but the cover isn't bad at all. Con comes close in round one, but the rest are no contest. Big win for pro.

Reasons for voting decision: Justin basically went for cheesy 80s and 90s haircut pop rock. Alfonzo had classics from Led Zep, Hendrix and The Who. No contest.
