As 100 mellores cancións de rock foi un programa especial de televisión da canle musical de cable VH1, o cal presentaba unha listaxe de temas de música rock que este realizou entre 700 persoas vinculadas á industria da música en Estados Unidos. Entre os músicos que votaron figuraron Bono do grupo U2, Johnny Cash, Art Garfunkel, Bonnie Raitt e Lou Reed.

A canción de The Rolling Stones, (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction foi seleccionada como o mellor tema xamais interpretado na historia do rock, segundo unha sondaxe realizada en Nova York.

The Beatles estiveron representados na lista co maior número de temas dun mesmo intérprete ou grupo de intérpretes: nove cancións. A primeira delas, "Hey Jude", quedou en noveno posto.

Na lista aparecen cinco cortes de The Rolling Stones e catro de Elvis Presley e Led Zeppelin respectivamente. Bob Dylan estivo representado con tres, ademais da súa composición "All Along the Watchtower", que os enquisados preferiron na versión de Jimi Hendrix.

O tema máis antigo da lista é "Rock Around the Clock" de Bill Haley e as súas Cometas, publicado en 1955, e o máis recente foi "Smells Like Teen Spirit", da banda Nirvana, publicado en 1991.

Controversia[editar | editar a fonte]

Esta controversia foi orixinada polas fortes ausencias de cancións como "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" de U2, "Losing My Religion" de REM, "Sultans of Swing" de Dire Straits, "Help!" de The Beatles, "Tutti Frutti" de Little Richard, a lendaria "Smoke on the Water" de Deep Purple, "Iron Man" de Black Sabbath, "Comfortably Numb" de Pink Floyd, "Blitzkrieg Bop" de Ramones, "Anarchy in the Ou.K." de Sex Pistols, "I Wanna Be Your Dog" de The Stooges, "Black" de Pearl Jam, "Mr. Tambourine Man" de The Byrds ou "November Rain" de Guns N' Roses, xa que son considerados como algunhas das mellores cancións de rock da historia.
