VH1 Classic Presents America's Hard 100

For years and years, VH1 and VH1 Classic have been putting together awesome music-related countdown shows that run the gamut from the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs to the 40 Greatest Metal Songs. These shows were painstakingly put together after endless hours of debate from not just music critics and our crack team of show producers, but also with input from the artists themselves. However, VH1 Classic’s upcoming countdown show, America’s Hard 100, will be different in that it won’t be a team of producers who determine the show’s results — this time around, it will be YOU, the FANS, who determine which songs fall in which order!

Over the course of the next 2 weeks, we’ll be soliciting YOUR VOTES to determine what is the greatest hard rock song of all-time. We’ve put together a list of 100 songs that you’ll be able to choose from, broken down into 10 series of 10 songs, to make voting for your favorite hard rock songs as easy as possible. Each day for the next 10 days, we’ll reveal a new list of songs that you can vote on. Vote early and vote often –and for as many songs as you’d like!– and you’ll be able to see the final results when America’s Hard 100 airs in November.

Today, our list of 10 songs include songs from rock powerhouses like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Scorpions. Check back tomorrow at noon eastern to vote on the likes of Alice Cooper, Def Leppard and Twisted Sister. But for now, here’s our first group of 10 songs for you to vote on. Remember, it will be YOUR VOTES that determine the end result of America’s Hard 100!
