When no one is watching, do you still do a little classic “air-guitar” performance when the song on the radio calls for it?
What are the best air guitar songs
Good game. Some of us don’t care if someone is watching or not! So what are we talking about? Pretend to swing on your invisible “air” guitar! You probably already have a favorite song. (feel free to share) A Google search yields many great lists, but here’s the top ten shared by Guitar World.
The 10 Greatest Air Guitar Songs of All Time 10 to 1
- Chuck Berry, “Johnny B. Goode”
- Beastie Boys, “Fight for Your Right”
- The Who, “Baba O’Riley”
- Aerosmith/Run DMC, “Walk Like This”
- Boston, “More than a feeling”
- Lynyrd Skynyrd, “Free Bird”
- Troggs, “wild thing”
- AC/DC, “You shook me all night”
- Jimi Hendrix, “Foxy Lady”
- Derek and the Dominoes, “Layla”
Who should have made the list…including who
I challenge some of their selections, but that’s part of the fun! (No Van Halen? No BTO? NO ZZTop? No Outlaw? No Molly Hatchet? NO Black Sabbath? No Dire Straits? NO George Thorogood? No Deep Purple? No Almon Brothers? No Metallica? No Queen? Dude! NO Joe Satrioni? AND the list goes on and on!)
I guess if we ever learned to play, maybe the craving for “air-guitar” would fade? Maybe not, but hey, there’s still time to learn given this recent announcement:

I suppose some music tastes “mature” over time, but experts say the music you loved when you were around 15-18 stays with you for life. Long live long hair and Rock ‘N’ Roll. Pass me that air guitar, oh wait, I’ll grab mine and let’s party while we still can!
