Rock And Roll All Nite Makes The New RS 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time List

Post by Grand Classic »

Greetings,

So Rolling Stone has put out a brand new 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time list today.

KISS makes one entry with Rock And Roll All Nite at #404.

To create the new version of the RS 500 we convened a poll of more than 250 artists, musicians, and producers — from Angelique Kidjo to Zedd, Sam Smith to Megan Thee Stallion, M. Ward to Bill Ward — as well as figures from the music industry and leading critics and journalists. They each sent in a ranked list of their top 50 songs, and we tabulated the results.

Nearly 4,000 songs received votes. Where the 2004 version of the list was dominated by early rock and soul, the new edition contains more hip-hop, modern country, indie rock, Latin pop, reggae, and R&B. More than half the songs here — 254 in all — weren’t present on the old list, including a third of the Top 100. The result is a more expansive, inclusive vision of pop, music that keeps rewriting its history with every beat.


https://www.rollingstone.com/music/musi ... e-1224886/

I am sure the outrage and backlash over this list in general will be all over the internet.

This is the Top 25:

25. Kanye West feat. Pusha T, 'Runaway'
24. The Beatles, 'A Day in the Life'
23. David Bowie, 'Heroes'
22. The Ronettes, 'Be My Baby'
21. Billie Holiday, 'Strange Fruit'
20. Robyn, 'Dancing on My Own'
19. John Lennon, 'Imagine'
18. Prince and the Revolution, 'Purple Rain'
17. Queen, 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
16. Beyoncé feat. Jay-Z, 'Crazy in Love'
15. The Beatles, 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'
14. The Kinks, 'Waterloo Sunset'
13. The Rolling Stones, 'Gimme Shelter'
12. Stevie Wonder, 'Superstition'
11. The Beach Boys, 'God Only Knows'
10. Outkast, 'Hey Ya!'
9. Fleetwood Mac, 'Dreams'
8. Missy Elliott, 'Get Ur Freak On'
7. The Beatles, 'Strawberry Fields Forever'
6. Marvin Gaye, 'What’s Going On'
5. Nirvana, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'
4. Bob Dylan, 'Like a Rolling Stone'
3. Sam Cooke, 'A Change Is Gonna Come'
2. Public Enemy, 'Fight the Power'
1. Aretha Franklin, 'Respect'

I would have maybe thought if ONE KISS song was going to make the list, it might be I Was Made For Loving You since everyone says how big that song is and how it has cross over appeal with other music genre's that RS is also trying to appeal to here.

I guess Rock And Roll All Nite is KISS' Stairway To Heaven, which also made the list.

Same here.

Rock and Roll All Nite would not even make my top 50 favourite KISS songs. Hell, it might struggle to make top 100.

Never liked this song much, so it would definitely struggle to make any best KISS song list from me.

G&P took The Ticket.

Their first reward, per the stipulations of the Agreement, was the cover of Rolling Stone.

Then being inducted.

Now, after G&P have successfully and convincingly followed their orders this past month, this third reward is immediately revealed.

It doesn't but it's clear based on this list and the 2020 revisions to the 500 albums list they are clearly aiming these towards a specific audience.

I'll say the same thing I said on a Beach Boys forum I use:

On no planet, universe or timeline does Hey Ya belong above God Only Knows on a list of great songs.

"Where the 2004 version of the list was dominated by early rock and soul, the new edition contains more hip-hop, modern country, indie rock, Latin pop, reggae, and R&B."

:roll: So, they asked more people into those genres to vote. A list like this means nothing. You can have a list of the 500 greatest songs and only ask people into death and black metal to vote. Then I'm guessing you won't have these three back to back...

25. Kanye West feat. Pusha T, 'Runaway'
24. The Beatles, 'A Day in the Life'
23. David Bowie, 'Heroes'

...which is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen in my life.

Let's be honest though - if anyone here attempted to make a 500 Greatest Songs List Of All Time, it would be completely fucking laughable.

The point is that no matter who makes the list - regardless if it's a source you respect or not, any such list is going to have backlash. It's not just a Rolling Stone problem.

BS list, no Dokken, no Britny Fox? C'mon! 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn' should have been at least in the Top 10. What's with all the Hip Hop stuff? Public Enemy? Wasn't that a film with Johnny Depp :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, fuck Rolling Stone, it's because of them Metal Edge doesn't exist and MCA dropped Pretty Boy Floyd.

These lists are designed to start debates & are obviously very subjective. But I find it damn near impossible to believe that enough people would vote for "Get UR Freak On' to rank it the # 8 song of all fucking time. Nothing against Missy Elliot, but come on, get real.

Also seeing "Dreams" just below it at #9 also is a head scratcher, only because I have a copy of the 2009 RS Top 500 (which I bought at the checkout counter of a 7-11 when I was stuck out of town overnight with nothing to read) and the only FM song on the entire list is "Go Your Own Way" at #120. How the hell did a true heritage act like Fleetwood Mac have a song go from not even making the list to vaulting into the Top Ten?

Their first reward, per the stipulations of the Agreement, was the cover of Rolling Stone.

Then being inducted.

Now, after G&P have successfully and convincingly followed their orders this past month, this third reward is immediately revealed.

First of all, I love how every time Rolling Stone magazine is mentioned you can expect people to come up with ”f@ck Rolling Stone” responsed. ”THEY DON’T LIKE KISS ENOUGH11 THAT STOOPID MAGAZINE. FUK EM1”

I find it way more refreshing to have songs by artists like Kanye and Missy Elliot on top 25 than the same old same old stuff that is included in every poll.

That being said, overall it is a great list I definitely would enjoy listening.

Had anyone even heard of Robyn before this list?! Surely there were thousands of modern pop songs that could have made it higher.
