    Default top 10 air guitar songs

    Best Ever Air Guitar Song
    Updated: 13:25, Sunday March 26, 2006

    Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven the been voted the ultimate guitar solo of all time.

    The Jimmy Page epic beat the likes of Guns N' Roses' Paradise City and Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Child to best air guitar moment.

    The solo was voted for by almost 2,000 readers of Total Guitar magazine.

    Despite never being released as a single, the 1971 song remains one of the most-played rock songs ever.

    It has been covered by everyone from Dolly Parton to Rolf Harris.

    Other tracks in the top 10 include The Eagles' Hotel California, Cream's Crossroads, Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train and Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Total Guitar editor Stephen Lawson said: "Absolutely everyone loves to play air guitar when they hear the moment in a song where the guitarist rocks out.

    "I'm not surprised that Stairway to Heaven is number one - not only is Jimmy Page's solo incredibly ballsy and a little bit flash, but it is also brilliantly structured."

    I never would have thought to air guitar to the Queen song.
    I'm not surprised 'Crazy Train' was on the list. Great song!

    "Don't Tell Me You Love Me", Night Ranger from their first album before the success of "Sister Christian" on "Midnight Madness" caused a change in direction forced by the record company.

    The Greatest Guitar solo of All-Time is easily "Eruption". It also happens to be a song. It Changed Rock Guitar.
    Stairway to heaven is a great song, but it's also the sentimental choice, and I dont recall it revolutionizing Rock Guitar.
    Therefore, the Greatest Air Guitar song of All-Time is easily Eruption.
