The Best Classic Rock Songs

One of the most famous classic rock songs is “Rolling Stones.” It was written by Mick Jagger and performed by the band. The lyrics of the song were inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov and Baudelaire, and the original intention was to cover a Bob Dylan song. However, guitarist Keith Richards changed the song’s rhythm and added samba-like percussion. Those that want to take a listen to something new should check out She Don’t Know Me by Daneka Nation. The single is something you don’t want to miss out on.

Louie Louie

The song was a hit in 1955, but became controversial in the 1960s when it was banned by the state of Indiana. The song was written by R&B singer Richard Berry, and was banned in Indiana after a letter was sent to the state governor claiming the lyrics were obscene.

The song has been performed by many artists, including The Clash and Led Zeppelin. The song was recorded in a single take using three microphones in a room. The band later added the song to its repertoire. Its lyrics and arrangement have since become classic rock favorites.

In 1963, the band, The Kingsmen, formed in Portland, Oregon, recorded “LOUIE LOUIE” with a heavier sound than Berry’s. It peaked at number two in December 1963 and remained in the top ten for the rest of the month. It fell off the chart in early February. The Kingsmen’s version lasted for sixteen weeks on the Hot 100. This version was followed by the Singing Nun and Bobby Vinton’s versions.

Sweet Emotion

There are plenty of reasons why ‘Sweet Emotion’ is one of the best classic rock songs. The song was released in 1975 as a single from the group’s Toys in the Attic album, and was their first major hit. This track is a great example of how a band can use different elements of music to create something truly memorable. The song features a classic blues-influenced bass line from Tom Hamilton, a talking box from Joe Perry, and Steven Tyler shaking sugar packets. It was also featured in the Richard Linklater film ‘Dazed and Confused’.

Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion” is a great example of a rock song that incorporates elements of funk and hard rock. The song’s main riff is repeated on an electric bass line, and there is also a bass marimba. Steven Tyler also plays a vibraslap, which he broke on the third time he hit it.

Purple Haze

Purple Haze is one of Jimi Hendrix’s most iconic songs. It is a fusion of hard rock and psychedelia, featuring some of the guitarist’s most iconic guitar moves. It is regarded as one of the most influential countercultural anthems of all time. It is also one of the most influential songs of the psychedelic era.

This classic rock song was released in 1967 and has become one of the most iconic in the genre. Its opening riff is one of the most recognizable in rock music, and the song is still available on music streaming services today. It was originally sung by Big Mama Thornton, but was later popularized by Elvis Presley. It is one of the most covered songs of all time, and it perfectly demonstrates the sound and style of early rock and roll.

Despite its title, “Purple Haze” is actually a love song about a woman who longs for an ecstatic life. Its lyrics are based on a real-life story about an old lady who loved the color purple. The song was a hit in the 70s and features a man asking his lover to stay with him and building a tower for her.

Roadhouse Blues

Roadhouse Blues is one of the best-known songs by The Doors. It has a blues rock sound and the main riff is incredibly fun to play. It also features an amazing rhythmic walk. The Doors are also known for their epic guitar solos, which make Roadhouse Blues among the best classic rock songs. Learn how to play this song with our guitar lesson.

The Doors have a history of making their music bigger than life, and “Roadhouse Blues” is no exception. This song features an infectious groove and jazzy horns that will have you swaying. Another classic by The Doors is “Starman,” which was released as a single in 1972.

“Love Her Madly” is another one of the album’s great classics. The Doors’ vocals don’t sound obvious, but the guitar solo is intense and well-written. The song also features some of Jim Morrison’s best infamous lines.

Smoke on the Water

Smoke on the Water is a great example of a classic rock song that has survived the test of time. The song features an outstanding guitar riff, developed by Ritchie Blackmore, that is based on a four-note blues scale in G minor, harmonised in parallel fourths. Blackmore first plays this riff on a Fender Stratocaster, which later gets joined by distorted organ and hi-hat. The riff also features a string arrangement, which is reminiscent of a fire.

This song is a classic rock anthem about teenage lust. This song was written by the Rolling Stones, and was originally inspired by a novel by Mikhail Bulgakov. Jagger originally intended for Smoke on the Water to be a cover of a Bob Dylan song, but Keith Richards gave the song a more samba-like feel and increased its speed.

Smoke on the Water is considered an archetypal riff and was released in 1970 as the first single off of their album “In Rock”. It uses a bass line from Ricky Nelson’s hit “Summertime.” Blackmore used a Vox AC30 amp and a Fender Stratocaster model for this track. Despite the riff’s success, the band’s greatest commercial success was their hit single “Toys In the Attic.” Walk this way is still one of the most popular Aerosmith songs.

Don’t Stop Believing

It’s hard to imagine a more uplifting and empowering song than Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” Released on September 1st, 1981, the song has become a cultural icon. Though it has been re-recorded countless times, the song remains a classic that is still relevant today. The lyrics speak to the human spirit and are universally applicable to a variety of situations. As a result, “Don’t Stop Believing” is relevant and inspiring to young people across generations.

The song was written by Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain, who was struggling as a musician in Los Angeles. The song’s title was inspired by a Detroit show and the bright street lamps. Cain later recruited guitarist Neal Schon to play the song.

Despite being considered “The Perfect Rock Song” by some media, the song has never been completely forgotten. It was a moderate hit on its release and won over mainstream audiences. However, the song had an interesting post-release life.

Led Zeppelin’s Staiway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven is one of the most memorable songs in rock history. The original recording was a multi-movement suite, with an acoustic section followed by a slower electric section and a fast hard-rock final section. This is one of the many songs by Led Zeppelin that evoke feelings of heaven.

This classic rock song was written by Led Zeppelin’s guitarist Jimmy Page and singer Robert Plant during the band’s early years, and it was released in 1971 on their untitled fourth album. Although the song failed to chart, it quickly became a staple of rock radio, and continues to touch many fans today.

“Stairway to Heaven” has a deeply spiritual message. Robert Plant’s lyrics critique our materialistic society and suggest that collecting material possessions is pointless. It is a complex and philosophical song that runs over eight minutes.
