Greatest Guitar Songs - Ever

I'm not sure which is more entertaining - the list of "The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time" as presented by Rolling Stone, or the comments by disgruntled fans who are beside themselves because of glaring omissions and misplaced rankings. ( I for one believe that "Black Magic Woman" deserves higher than a 39...)

Here are the Top Ten on the list:

1. "Johnny B. Goode," Chuck Berry (1958)
2. "Purple Haze," The Jimi Hendrix Experience (1967)
3. "Crossroads" Cream (1968)
4. "You Really Got Me" The Kinks (1964)
5. "Brown Sugar" The Rolling Stones (1971)
6. "Eruption" Van Halen (1978)
7. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" The Beatles (1968)
8. "Stairway to Heaven" Led Zepplin (1971)
9. "Statesboro Blues" The Allman Brothers Band (1971)
10. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Nirvana (1991)
