It's no coincidence that the best rock songs from the 60's all the way to the 80's have the words "classic rock" attached to them. These songs have truly withstood the test of time and still hold up as musical milestones to this day. Even with all the years of hindsight though, there are some songs that haven't been given their just due.
That's not to say that these songs were the make-or-break moments of these band's careers. Most of these musicians already have countless rock staples under their belt to pull from when compiling a setlist of their hits. However, there are some songs that remain undiscovered by fans for years before finally being brought to light as something truly worth celebrating.

Though it's easy to sing the praises of something that has been dubbed 'classic,' sometimes it's more fun to root for the underdogs. Here are the unsung riffs from rock's past that will leave you in awe after first listening.
