    Default Top 10: Rock Diss Songs

    Top 10: Rock Diss Songs

    By Craig Mazin
    Entertainment Correspondent - Every other Wednesday



    A good comeback is tough to pull off. When crossed, most people usually respond ineffectually, either resorting to a feeble string of obscenities or just sitting and stewing silently. Talented musicians have a more effective venue for expressing their displeasure to an unfaithful significant other or a backstabbing friend -- the diss song. By composing a radio-friendly diatribe, a musician can ensure that the intended target -- and millions of others -- will know all too well that they did wrong.

    So in honor of the nasty comeback, here are the top 10 rock and roll diss songs. A couple of ground rules have been set. Every second pop song is a lament about some no-good man or woman, so in the interest of thinning the field, we've limited our list to those songs that pinpoint an identifiable, publicly-known individual as the focus. Also, the rap diss is such a massive genre that it merits consideration on its own, so any rap entries will be withheld for inclusion on a separate list in the future.


    See where Sammy's ranks:

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    lists like this about 'reaction' or 'diss' tunes pop up every once in a while but seriously, there's nothing as scathing, as bitingly brilliant and pointed as How Do You Sleep...John Lennon was capable of just as much animosity as he was compassion and with as wry and intelligient as he was, when he wanted to take a shot at someone, it was a SHOT.

    Yeah, The Other Hand has disses to the brothers.

    But the real diss is for the ultimate f-head ("Came an evil man and he cut off one hand."). Mr. Ray Daniels. I wonder if we could sue him as a fan base for emotional pain and suffering.

    One class-action lawsuit comin up.

    What do you want it to say and what's the going rate for pain and suffering
    these days?

    I know, but I'm bored.

    'Go Your Own Way' is way better than all those other tunes. Think about it...the chck you diss in the song has to sing the chorus every night...

    Now THAT's harsh. But so true.

    Fleetwood Mac was always good for a little drama weren't they.

    Well, I got my friends
    And I don't need more friends
    I can count my friends on both hands
    Came an evil man, cut off one hand
    Now I count my friends on the other hand
    On the other hand
    Was an evil man, money on his mind
    He don't want chump change
    He want the big kind
    He want the big kind
    Well, I got my friends
    And I don't need more friends
    I can count my friends on both hands
    On the other hand
    But on the other hand....

    no diss on the brothers....only that rat bastard ray daniels

    Can't we just exact a little southern justice on old Mr. Daniels. i say we have him shot, stabbed, hanged, stretched, disembowled, drawn and quartered. But then, that may be too quick a death for him. Have I been in the desert too long? MAYBE!!!!!
    Come on baby(Van Halen), Finish What Ya Started. I'm incomplete!!!!!

    One out of every four people is mentally disturbed. Look at your three best friends, if they all seem O.K. then it's you.

    Growing old is a requirement. Growing up is an option!

    Why am I a pessimist? 'Cause I'm either always proven right, or at least pleasantly surprised.

    A friend will bail you out of jail. A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying, "Dude, that was freakin' AWESOME!"

    I say we stomp him!
    Then we tattoo him!
    Then we hang him!

    Danniels: I say we let him go.
    Everybody: No!
