OZZY OSBOURNE Helps Select Top 500 Greatest Rock Songs Of All Time

Ozzy Osbourne was among the panel of recording artists, producers, label executives, critics and songwriters that selected the list of the greatest rock 'n' roll songs of all time, to be published in a special edition of Rolling Stone magazine out on Friday, according to Reuters. Also on the panel were singer Art Garfunkel, Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, vocalist Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan's rock star son, Jakob, among many others.

The lion's share of songs from the list hail from the 1960s, and only a handful were released after 1990, including NIRVANA's 1991 hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit" at No. 9. The most recent single to make the list was "Hey Ya!" (2003) from the hip-hop duo OUTKAST, at No. 180. Rapper EMINEM's "Lose Yourself" (2002) ranked No. 166.
