One good thing: in the dutch national top 2000 of last year they reached the number 1 position with Bohemian Rhapsody for the 5th following year :)

It is a better list than the veronica rock top 100 of all time.

Queen is the best !!!!!

Not a big GnR fan myself, but another thing... Coldplay at #8??? Not that I have some form of personal vendetta against *yawn* Coldplay, but since when has Clocks ever been better than Bo Rhap?
Then again, there are a lot of weird things going on there... I'm just going to say the list is broken, and be done with it.

Guns N' Roses was indeed a great band, and although I'm not sure whether 'November Rain' deserves to be #1 or not, it sure deserves a place in the top 10.
Too bad that Axl was(and still is) such an asshole. Even though he knew that he had the biggest band in the world, he had to destroy it because he thought that his band members and everyone that he worked with should always agree with him.

Reminds me of the time when Freddie said that bands always break up because they all have egos, but when there's an asshole who is stronger than the rest, then he wants to take absolute control over everything. And that's the sad end of a rock band.

The number 2 from that list suits the #1 position of that list better IMO. Even better than "Borhap". There are also a lot of songs that don't belong in that list....


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

I'm having a Guns N' Roses renaissance at the moment. Listening to the new greatest hits album made me play all the albums. Appetite is a fantastic debut, Lies contains Patience and Used To Love Her enough said I think, The two Use Your Illusions show their musicmanship brilliantly especially on November Rain and my favourite (which no-one else likes) Breakdown. The covers album is shite though.


Guess who's back?

Sure that list has some songs that shouldn't be there, but it's a way much better list than those VH1 Top 100 lists.

To me, these are the top 10 of all time...

Bohemian Rhapsody
Losing My Religion (REM)
One (Metallica)
Another Brick In The Wall (Pink Floyd)
Paint It Black (Rolling Stones)
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
Dream On (Aerosmith)
Hotel California (Eagles)
November Rain (Guns N' Roses)
Stairway To Heaven (Led Zeppelin)

On what order should they go, I still don't know. They're all too good.

What pissed me off about Guns N' Roses is that they did too many covers, although I have to say that "Knockin' One Heaven's Doors", "Mama Kin" and "Live and Let Die" are great.

It seems to me like as differences got worse between the band, the more covers they made and the less original they became.

Banquo I see that you too are partial to a bit of whistling ;) Patience is a fantastic song - spine tingly. The jury is still out on Breakdown lol :D

Ya know virtuoso - I havent really listened to much Deep Purple, but I might just get 24 carat purple. Unless you have a better suggestion?

Guns N' Roses are my 2nd fav band :-)

If you're new to them and have just got the Greatest Hits album, you should really get Appetite For Destruction and Live Era '87-'93... then get the others dammit!

My fav GN'R song? Could well be Estranged from Use Your Illusion II :-)

With the fact that GN'R has the #1 slot I can live. However, Bon Jovi on #3 is a real shame.
Queen that low means that the audience is too young. Queen doesn't get too much airplay, and if they get any, it's not BohRap, but WWRY or Don't stop me now. I guess BohRap takes too long :P

My list:

1 Metallica - One
2 Queen - BohRap
3 Iron Maiden - Rime of the ancient marriner
4 GN'R - Estranged
5 Rainbow - Mistreated
6 Deep Purple - Child in time
7 Black Sabbath - Black sabbath
8 Dream Theater - A change of seasons
9 Iced Earth - Pure Evil
10 After Forever - Forlorn Hope

And yes, I know these are all epic songs (at least the first 8 are)

I'm telling you now as I listen to Breakdown at ear-splittingly volume, that it is chuffing brilliant.
