I could sit here for hours and list alot of songs that rock. Anything by early Metallica will set the blood pumping, but if you want a rush, try listening to "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zepplin at full volume!

11-16-2002, 11:40 PM
Why, ROCK and ROLL by Led Zeppelin just freakin' rocks, of course, despite the fact that GM has co-opted it.

here is a list of songs that just demand listening to at full volume. btw I've tried not to list songs that are not immediatly obvious or are not simply a really heavy song, but a song that sounds even better when blasting out of speakers
voodoo child - jimi hendrix
whole lotta love/stairway to heaven (last part - as someone said)
1969 - The vines ( an amazing outro riff)
freebird - lynyrd skynyrd
smells like teen spirit - nirvania
sultans of swing - dire straits
monkey wrench - foo fighters
most of the rage against the machine catalogue
walk this way - run dmc v aerosmith
break on through - the doors
1977 - ash (particulary the intro and solo)
riverboat song - ocean colour scene
the wall (part 2) - pink floyd
live forever - oasis
last nite(sic) - the strokes
around the world - red hot chilli peppers
we're only gonna die from our own arrogance - sublime
just a day - feeder
hmm ive run low on inspiration, but im sure i'll post some more later
11-17-2002, 02:13 PM

Davey's voice makes me go weak at the knees. ;)
Refused are Fuckin Dead by RefusedAmen! My favorite Refused song.
11-17-2002, 03:03 PM
Oh heck, if we're going classical, Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor, by Johann Sebastian Bach. At the other end of things, Rock and Roll Dreams Come True, and Dead Ringer for Love, both performed by Meatloaf and written by Jim Steinman. Actually, I'll take most things by Bach or Steinman.
11-17-2002, 03:04 PM
actually firebat i would agree there are a number of classical songs which are 'heavy' enough to be played loudly, although i'll admit i have no idea what they are called indivisually.
11-17-2002, 03:41 PM
A few favorites:
Hash Pipe by Weezer
Over and Over by Neil Young
Sentimental Hygiene by Warren Zevon
Happy Jack by The Who (Keith Moon on drums--oh,yeah)
Revolution by the Beatles (John Lennon)
11-17-2002, 03:46 PM
"Who Made Who" by AC/DC
"Fight For Your Right" by The Beastie Boys
"Cordelia" by The Tragically Hip
"Low" by Cracker
"I Alone" by Live
"For Those About To Rock" by AC/DC
Some bands just have to be played loud.

Yeah, that is about as good as it gets. Yngwie Malmsteen did a classical album that's pretty sweet too--ever heard an electric guitar playing Baroque music with a full orchestra accompanying?
11-17-2002, 06:16 PM
Tilted - Sugar
New Day Rising - Hüsker Dü
Amazing Journey/Sparks - The Who (The version on Live at Leeds in particular.)
I Don't Care About You - Fear
Ocean Size - Jane's Addiction
Sweat Loaf - Butthole Surfers
So What - Ministry
I Will Refuse - Pailhead
Gouge Away - The Pixies
Silver Rocket - Sonic Youth
And....I was always just mildly fond of Valley Girl by Frank Zappa, but a few days back we had sort of a drunken Zappa odyssey and I really listened to it for the first time. Underneath Moon Unit's yammering there's some truly bad-assed stuff going on there ... especially the bass line.
11-17-2002, 06:19 PM
In no particular order:
"In Bloom" by Nirvana
"Pretty Noose" by Soundgarden
"Plush" by STP
"Hero of the Day" by Metallica

"Lonely is the Night" by Billy Squire
"Kickstart My Heart" by Mötley Crüe
"You Really Got Me" by, yes, Van Halen (sorry Kinks' fans)
"Paradise City" by Guns N Roses
and everything by Led Zepplin
11-17-2002, 06:25 PM
Though if you need a symphonic accompaniment while you're out kickin' peoples' asses you can't do much better than Orff's Carmina Burana....or maybe Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, Second Movement if you're into the whole bowler-hat Kubrick thing...
11-17-2002, 06:35 PM
"Renegades of Funk" by Rage Against the Machine

11-18-2002, 12:13 AM
Sorry to say it guys,but "Spin Around"on the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack kicks ass, I'm serious. Won't know if you don't try.
Also, "Dancing To The Rhythm" off of Stevie Wonder''s Natural Wonder cd. I'll get your toes a tappin.
11-18-2002, 12:37 AM
A million of 'em, of course, but here are a few that I've almost gotten busted for singing out loud when wandering around the school yard - in my supposed position of responsibility as a teacher ;) [And sorry for the swearing, but that's what they're called!) :

Dude! I sat next to them on a bus in Arlington a couple summers ago. Had no idea who they were, and asked what their band was called. I thought they were messing with me.
Back on topic - Baba O'Reilly.
11-18-2002, 02:23 PM
Um...Kid Rock....."Bawiddaba" (or how every you spell it)....or "Forever", " American Bad Ass" Thanks Metallica!
Metallica......."Sad But True"
Aerosmith- "Sweet Emotion"
Alice In Chains "Them Bones"
11-18-2002, 03:00 PM
I'm the One (Show your love) - by Van Halen. All four members of the band go all out on this song. Everything is balls out full speed up until the "Bop ba da - doo be do wa" part, and then they punch it again. I personally think it is the singlemost rockinest song ever made.
YYZ by Rush. Love those bass harmonics, latin style guitar lead, and the breaking glass sound. Best song ever written about an airport.
Got the Time? by Anthrax or Joe Jackson. This is a fast rocking, awesome, but little-known track despite its being recorded by two very different artists.
Riff Raff by AC/DC. Everything these guys do rocks, but I think this one tops the list.
Ca Plane Por Moi by the Merry Makers. Originally recorded by Plastic Bertrand which is also good, but I think the Merry Makers pound it out with a rawer edge.
Jesus Built my Hotrod by Ministry. What other song makes you want to ding a ding dang your dang a long ling long?
Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine. IMO the defiant refrain "F*** you I won't do what you tell me!" at the end of this song is a high point in music history.
11-18-2002, 04:30 PM
Lots of these are excellent choices, but I've got to heartily agree with the following suggestions:
Man in the Box
I'm practicaly yelling along with these songs when I hear them. Stand back!
11-18-2002, 06:23 PM
"On A Rope" - Rocket from the Crypt
"Debaser" - The Pixies
"That's When I Reach for my Revolver" - Mission of Burma
"Cherub Rock" "Today" and, slighly more obscure, but the rockingest of them all IMHO, "Jellybelly" - Smashing Pumpkins
"Swimsuit Issue" - Sonic Youth
"Seek and Destroy" - Metallica
"Black Dog" - Led Zeppelin
Pretty much any Jimi Hendrix
A slower one that "rocks" - "Waiting for Superman" - Flaming Lips
"Jimmy's Fantasy" - Redd Kross
And many more which slip my mind...
11-18-2002, 06:24 PM
Oh, crap, one more:
"Orgasm Addict" - The Buzzcocks
Oh, and one more for good measure:
"Sound of Carpet" - Stereolab

"The Gun Fight" from Aaron Copland's Billy the Kid.
Alborada del Grazioso by Maurice Ravel.

11-22-2002, 10:32 AM
Is it even possible to listen to Led Zep's In the Evening on anything less than 10, doing anything less than the hardest head-bang? I think not.

Pistolero - Juno Reactor
Seven Days - Cracker
Welcome to the Jungle - Guns 'n' Roses

"Hold Your Head Up", by Argent. Back when I was working at the Fremont, and hadn't got my dealing chops yet, and they played '70's music in the casino, that song got me through many a bad day. And it just rocks.
"All Along the Watchtower", Jimi Hendrix version
"Pretty Vacant"- The Sex Pistols
