Duval Central Picks the Greatest Rock and Roll Songs
(In Numerical Order)

    I was frustrated when I saw the list compiled by VH1, so the wife said, "Well, compose your own then." So here are my top rock 'n' roll picks for the last 5 decades in no particular order yet. We're still trimming the list and Nina has a different of opinion on what songs should be on this list. Hopefully we'll get it right. You're welcome to participate.
