Encyclopedia > List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time

In 2004, Rolling Stone listed the 500 Greatest Songs of All-Time as polled by musicians, critics, and industry figures. As with the magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, this new list proved to be controversial. Of course, no such list can entirely avoid controversy, as it is limited to only 500 songs and naturally must exclude some personal favorites of readers, as well as all songs not sung in English (La Bamba by Ritchie Valens is the one exception). One common criticism is that the list leans towards the 1960s and 1970s at the expense of newer artists and even newer genres such as rap, much as the earlier 500 Albums list did.

Hip hop music is a style of popular music. ...

GREG’S NOTE: I’ve re-edited this list to try and make sure I’m using the same version as what’s on other lists such as the Country 500, Dave Marsh’s 1001 Greatest singles, RIAA Hall of Fame etc. That way, you’ll get correct “credit” for hearing a song on all 3 lists.

List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2155 words)
As with the magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, this new list proved to be controversial.
Of course, no such list can entirely avoid controversy, as it is limited to only 500 songs and naturally must exclude some personal favorites of readers, as well as all songs not sung in English (La Bamba by Ritchie Valens is the one exception).
One common criticism is that the list leans towards the 1960s and 1970s at the expense of newer artists and even newer genres such as rap, much as the earlier 500 Albums list did.
