An Open Letter From Henry Rollins

Recently, I found a group on Facebook that is called (Don t Piss Off The Sound Guy) which is a funny look at how sound techs get treated by the musicians and artists along the way. On the group page I did find some great pics that people have already posted and I wanted to post one.

100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs

The other night I watched a VH-1 program which was a countdown of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. The songs were a result of people going onto the VH-1 web site to cast votes for their top 10 hard rock songs from a selected list of music. Of course, the list was subjective to the songs listed on the web site. There were some omissions that didn't make the list depending on who's music you are a fan of. You should have seen some of the comments made about that on the VH-1 forum page. Anyhow, I am sure that all of us would not have the same exact top 100 list as we all are fans of different songs from that genre.

What songs would you have on your top 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs?

Feel free to post a few songs that are you personal favourites. There are no right or wrong answers here. Have fun with it.

Here are some of my personal favourites:

Tom Sawyer - Rush
Sunshine of Your Love - Cream
Runnin' With The Devil - Van Halen
Stone In Love - Journey
Don't Tell Me You Love Me - Night Ranger
Back In Black - AC/DC
Walk This Way - Aerosmith
Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Still Of the Night - Whitesnake
Photograph - Def Leppard
Raise A Little Hell - Trooper
Fight The Good Fight - Triumph
Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin

and so on.....
