    A good rock song should be no more than 3-4 minutes long, maximum of 3-4 chords, have a beat you can dance to, and have a killer riff. So my choice for the "perfect" rock song of all time is Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones.
    Completely

    agree for all the reasons you named. Satisfaction is a perfect rock song.

      I like Bon-Scott-era AC/DC, but I don't think Highway to Hell is even in the band's top 40 songs ...

        AC/DC is certainly good for some Big Dumb Rock.

        However, for those of us with a more intellectual bent, "When the Levee Breaks" is the perfect rock song.

                  thats why ac/dc is more rock and roll which literally means sex. Rock and roll isnt about the rhyme of the ancient mariner or muad'dib

                        It's hard to pick one but this one would be one of the top ones for me.

                          As my wife, Olivia has just said 'it's Uber-subjective'. If you ask me tomorrow, the answer will be different.

                          I don't even like Queen that much, but when I think of rock song perfection, I think of this song. It has everything, it's not formulaic, it's got da wock, it's got melody, drama, technical brilliance, tension, atmosphere. It's near ****************ing perfect.



                          I guess wock also, in its 'perfect' form has to be rather cheesy and on the edge being a bit ****************, while also somehow being great:

                            Rush - ByTor and the Snow Dog


                            Rush is my band, and I can't get behind this one. If anything Working Man.

                            And no love for Shook Me All Night? Iconic opening riff, thumping beat, simple chords, getting laid. Rock.

                            Wooly Bully? Are you a WW1vet? ( easy, just ribbing)
                            Johnny B Goode? Did you hand out at Arnolds?

                            We should lay down some parameters..

                            Subjects: Drugs, booze, sex, crime, misbehaving, the suck or life or need to party
                            Chords: 4, tops
                            Riffs: INSTANTLY known by Non musicians
                            Speed: Fast /110 or above


                            Satisfaction = Sex
                            U Shook Me=Sex
                            Comfortably Numb= drugs
                            Highway=misbehaving
                            Bohemian=Crime-murder
                            Hotel California= Drug Culture AND Corporate Control of Radio aka The Man
                            Good deals with - Yarbicus, CBH5150, BozzofAngels, Alvin Wilson, Harris Quinn

                            Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.
