For those about to rock, we salute you.

Logos for classic rock bands, all known for inspirational lyrics

I grew up listening to classic rock, something I incredibly thankful for. The amazing songs that make up this genre, with their great beats and moving melodies, are just one of those "feel good" things in the world. Not only that, they've got the power to bring people with a shared appreciation and shared nostalgia. But what do I think is one of the biggest things that make these songs so great? The lyrics. Not only are these lyrics fun to sing (or scream at the top of your lungs, which is my personal preference), the majority of them have deep meaning. Here are 20 classic rock lyrics that anyone can use to cheer them up, inspire them, or advise them when they don't know where to go or what to do.
