Never liked Madonna much, I also felt "Walk This Way" revolutionized both Rock and Rap/Hip-Hop

Van Halen Rules, but walk this way brough rap music out to country dudes like myself, a much more important song!

great poll

I'm a huge Nirvana fan, but "Smells Like Teen Spirit" isn't exactly Nirvana's greatest song (just their most well-known)... "Don't Speak" is a much better song compositionally, emotionally, and production wise.

wow. tough to narrow the field down to just these 16 songs.... there could be many arguments that these are not the 16 best, but you did hit a number of types, which is good. how did "don't speak" end up on this list? i mean, i liked that song/album, but it wasn't even close as impactful as a song as many of the others here......
