Rolling Stone 500: top 50

On Friday, Rolling Stone magazine issued its list of the 500 greatest rock n' roll songs of all time. While there are some obvious omissions and some head-scratching inclusions, it's an interesting list nonetheless.

This playlist includes 39 songs from the top 50 that are available through Rhapsody (sorry kids, no Beatles yet).
