well, this isn't exactly a top 100, but it's my moronically time-consuming chronological history fo the evolution of Rock, not necessarily the best, but the forward moving. I also used a pretty strict definition of 'Rock' - hence no Beatles (pop), Hendrix (except for like 3 songs, Soul/R&B), Dylan, etc. - they're all great, but just didn't fit.

Side 1 of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" - don't try to separate the story into little songs.

Iron Man if you must have some Black Sabbath, but then toss in some "Smoke on the Water" and "Lazy" and "Space Truckin'"

Did I not see "Stairway to Heaven" yet?

No love for Carlos?? Toss in the "Black Magic Woman/Evil Woman*" combo, top w/ some "Oye Como Va". And if you're just jamming, got'sta have some "Jessica" by the Allman Brothers.

For those of you who don't have anything other than corporate radio in your hometown I recommend the following:

The song is called Pounding
