Here's The Definitive List Of The Top 10 Most Iconic Songs Ever

Number 1, we still love you


A new study has just definitively proven what the top 10 most iconic songs of all time are, and we’re a bit surprised by a few of them.

Researchers at Goldsmiths University of London ran a vast amount of ‘all time best’ lists through analytical software to compare their key, BPM, sonic variance chord variety, lyrical content, and timbral variety.

As a result, they were able to compile a mathematically proven list of the greatest songs ever.

Here are the top 10 most iconic songs ever:

10. Guns 'n' Roses - 'Sweet Child O' Mine’

9. Sex Pistols – 'God Save the Queen'

8. The Rolling Stones – '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'

7. Bob Dylan – 'Like a Rolling Stone’

6. The Beatles – 'Hey Jude’

5. Queen – 'Bohemian Rhapsody’

4. Michael Jackson – 'Billie Jean’

3. U2 – 'One'

2. John Lennon – 'Imagine'

1. Nirvana – 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'
