K peeps..this might sound crazy..but i don't care...i just wanna get this off my chest...this is MY CHOICES & OPINIONS...the rest of u...feel free to join n share with me ur views...seriously...BTW...all listed below are Rock Anthem Classics...When you peeps listen to these songs, just turn on the volume to LOUDEST...and here are my TOP 10
1. Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane : Okay, here's one song which even my sister likes (well, for someone who listens to Junction and all those weepy Malay bands). A stadium rock song. Scorpions were not really known for their fast paced songs. But here is one that really stands out.
2. Queen - We Will Rock You : Okay , i chose this song, as even my 2 years old niece sings that phrase. Queen has been one of the best rock bands in mainstream pop. Freddie Mercury, in my opinion, has been one of the best 'live' vocalists around.
3. Rainbow - Long Live Rock 'n' Roll : It's got to be DIO!!! All Ritchie Blackmore had to do was inform DIO he has a 'rock n' roll' in mind, and POOF!!!! This song has been a revelation.
4. Black Sabbath - Paranoid : The history of this song? Well, the Sabs had a few spare minutes to go for the completion of their 2nd LP, and this song was the result of that few minutes. Awesome, to say the least. This is the song that made the Sabs a mainstream metal pioneer.
5. Led Zeppelin - Rock and Roll : I remember Mathilda Da'Silva singing this song on Singapore Idol. She blew me away. The studio recording of this song has never been replicated by even Robert Plant himself on their live sets. A terrific song from one of Hard Rock/Heavy Metal's most well-known band.
6. The Blizzard of Ozz - Crazy Train : Ozzy mentioned during one of his live sets after singing this song. "Now, that's what Rock n' Roll's about!!!" I have always have a soft spot for the drum and guitar intro to this song.
7. Yngwie Malmsteen - You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget : Hmm, i'm not sure if this song fits into this Rock Anthem category, but this was a choice i could not avoid. A perfect break-up song.
8. Deep Purple - Burn : David Coverdale and Glen Hughes were like fighting for the microphone to see who could scream louder. This was a torrid time for Deep Purple, tho they were still able to churn out hits after the exit of Ian Gillan. This song was one it.
9. DIO - Rainbow In The Dark : This song explains on how we should always look forward. Finding the Rainbow in the Dark is our greatest challenge. It does not mean if we're facing adversities, we can never find a way out.
10. Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine : Yes, the masters of 80s rock. I grew up with this song, and i admit, Sheryl Crow could not sing as good as Axl Rose. The intro to this song has made many pick up and learn to play the guitar.
