Lots of goodies in there, but they have an extended view of "rock'n'roll" I think.

Anyway, this would make for an excellent playlist, probably to be listened to chronologically to have a feel of the evolution.

A good deal of awesome songs on here, especially WL/WH, but the number of hip-hop songs here is confusing. Confused Also, the selections for Michael Jackson songs is not good. And no Beefheart. Crying or Very sad

But yeah, good list overall.

They missed the Manic Street Preachers again Surprised

Although this does get in some interesting choices. The Hammersmith song for The Clash (really is a great song) and Spirit Of The Radio over Tom Sawyer. David Bowie even got a song I couldn't recoginize if it was played right now. I'm not sure if I have heard of 'Fame' before but it is right there Shocked

I believe the idea is to include songs that have been influential in the evolution of rock & roll, which explains some of the non-rock & roll songs on the list. Country, blues and hip hop, for instance, have all been very influential to how rock music sounds.
