Sweet Child O’ Mine – Guns N’ Roses
This song is like the best song ever
Slash is awesome and is better then every other guitarist
So everyone pick this song because it is the best 80’s song ever
This is one song no matter how many times I hear it it takes me to my happy place. Will never get tired of hearing it. Love it!
Best song that there has ever been. Without a doubt. Guns n roses is the best band that has ever been aspablished and I would kill to see them live.
I jerk off to this song. I’m getting an erection writing this comment- Jack Mcintyre
2. Livin’ On a Prayer – Bon Jovi
If you ask a group of people “what comes to mind when you think of the 80’s? “, 4/10 people will say Bon Jovi.
Greatest of rock songs ever
Kid rock quote about Livin’On A Prayer from Bon Jovi When We Were Beautiful documentary, “There are songs which are great within a trend, and then, there are songs which become the trend”!
The best 80’s rock song of all time!
3. Back In Black – AC/DC
This Song is amazing. I can’t believe it is not number one.
Number 1 with no question
Best song/riff ever written
4. Eye of the Tiger – Survivor
This songs is the best rock songs of 80’s ever
One of the greatest songs ever written!
Should be 1st in the list
Still played on radio, so good they were able to do remake. The new version is great also. Both are positive & raise the spirit.
Best song ever
5. Welcome to the Jungle – Guns N Roses
The scream at the beginning. I always crank it up.
A great song, heaps of fun to sing along to!
This should be #1 80s rock song.
Awesome so awesome!
6. Hallowed Be Thy Name – Iron Maiden
Iron maiden is one of the most prolific and best rock bands of all time. So many great songs so great live it definitely is an experience of a lifetime. The depth and meaning of their songs is just unbelievable. Dickinson one of the best vocalists of all time. You put that together with 3 extremely talented guitarists, the best bass player of all time and the most iconic drummer of all time and you have a truly religious musical experience that anyone can and will appreciate. UP THE IRONS FOREVER! LONG LIVE MAIDEN
Absolutely one of the most incredibly talented bands of all time. These guys played hard, fast and loud. Dickinson has one of the best voices in rock history, Steve Harris is the fastest bass guitarist of all time, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Janick Gers have riffs that never quick and Nicko on the drums never misses a beat. All this and they sing songs about literature – Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Flight of Icarus, The Charge of the Light Brigade in The Trooper. The sing from scripture in the Number of the Beast and the English Hymnal in Revelation. They tell stories that need to be told in Hallowed be Thy Name and Aces High singing about WW2 fighter pilots. They sing about history with Churchill’s speech to the English people in WW2, one of the most powerful ever. This band can’t be matched. Enough Said.
How the hell is this not number 1? This is probably the best song of all time!
When you’ve seen Maiden live nothing else can ever compare. Awesome. Regardless of your taste in music, you can’t help but appreciate the pure talent of musicians at the pinnacle of their trade. I like most of the bands and songs on this list, but Iron Maiden wins.
7. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
Too many great songs to list but when I think of “80’s” rock songs, Journey, regardless of which song it is, comes to mind.
Awesome song – How can MJ be number 1 rock song when he was a pop artist?
Ah the most popular song by journey an old time favorite I can never get enough of this song
Love this song
8. Beat It – Michael Jackson
Not even a rock song.
To all you people moaning that Michael Jackson is a pop artist, it’s about the song not the artist. This song features a guitar riff and solo written and performed by Eddie Van Halen – possibly the most gifted guitarist at the time. This automatically brings it into the rock genre.
Who even voted for him, he’s got nothing to do with rock, its a joke come on really?
It’s a good song and ig it’s in the rock category do to the solo we all love but I don’t know if it should be at #6. You guys have “shook me all night long” by ac/dc at #65? That’s pretty sad. You didn’t even have it in the top 25? In my opinion I would have ac/dc here and have “beat it” around 27 or 28. Don’t get me wrong it is a great song but I don’t know about it being at #6 and an even better song at #65. And if you don’t think the way I do then listen to the song (shook me all night long) and you might come to see what I’m trying to say. You might even bring the song to a deeper meaning, like we should do with all of our 80s rock songs. That is what all of our song writers/ bands wanted. For us to forget about life and just listen for a moment and let go of anything bothering you at that point of time. I know that’s what I do and I hope you do to.
9. One – Metallica
This is a top 5 song
Justice WAS released 25th aug 88. Just to set record straight.
Such a good song. Perfect slow Harmony then heavy at the end beautiful!
Awesome this band is BAD ASS #1 ALWAYS.
THERE OLDER MUSIC YEP YOU SAID IT. COULD NOT BE DISAPPOINTED AT THERE CONSERT.
DAMN THOSE WRRE BAD ASS YEARS.
10. Another One Bites the Dust – Queen
not my favorite Queen song, but definitely the one that says EIGHTIES the most.
Ah an old classic queen song I love it
Not my favorite queen song, put is close to the top of the list
Not a rock song. But. Awesome.
