    Its not really about dividing success by genre, I'm just trying to compile a list for the Top Rock songs on Youtube.

    And you're right about "Every breath you take", it does have some rock influence but its also pretty mellow and Pop. I'll be definitely removing that one! .... That would make space Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Otherside" to enter the list

    It is one of the more mellow ones on the list but it is defined as an alternative rock song. It is pop-ish for sure but it isn't really straight pure pop either. Pop-Rock at worst.
    If the No Doubt frontwoman was Shirley Manson or Tori Amos, it would not be categorized as pop. It really depends on how the artist pulls it off, and seeing that Gwen turned into a pop star, it's considered by some as a pop song now.
    You're quite right. Gwen's perception changed over the years, she's seen as a very girly and stylish popstar these days, but back in the 90s she and her band were seen as Rock and Ska-Punk. However I did checked "Don't Speak" carefully and I realized that it was nomintated for Best Pop Duo / Group performance at the Grammys, so it seems like the was always considered Pop which lead me to inmediately remove the it from the list. Their other 90s singles are definitely Rock, but don't have enough views to make the list.

    I can't decide regarding "More Than Words". Do you think I should add it to the list? For me its very acoustic and mellow although I can see why some consider it part of the Rock genre, there's a misconception that Rock always have to be heavy and loudy and that isn't really true. There are Rock ballads as well, perhaps "More than words" could be that - a rock ballad? ..... However after what happened to No Doubt's "Don't Speak" which got removed from the list for being "Too Pop" I don't really see how "More Than Words" is that much different than "Don't Speak".

    My dearest friend Artiom released a new video, actually it was released in February, but I've decided to post it to our forum now.
    I ask everyone to watch this video. You'd be impressed. I'm simply hypnotised by mysterious Artiom's voice. I hope you will either. Also feel free to leave comments under his video.

    "Thunder" is not a Rock song hence thats why it isn't included.

    I would be glad to remove No Doubt's "Don't Speak" tho . . . I included it just for being nice to Gwen Stefani but it is the more mellow song on the list and my guys from System Of A Down are waiting at #51 with their stunning "Toxicity" to break the countdown.
