The 50 best rock songs of 2022 – as voted by you

Incase you’ve missed it (and you still have a few days left to pick it up as a particularly excellent Christmas present for that special rock fan in your life), the new issue of Classic Rock is an end of year spectacular, celebrating the great, the good and the newsworthy from the last twelve months in rock.

As part of the 2022 celebrations, earlier this month we asked the experts – that’s you lot – to vote for the very best rock songs of 2022. And vote you most certainly did – tens of thousands of votes were cast, in fact, as rock fans from around the world rushed to crown their very favourite anthem from the past year. 

So, without further ado, here are the 50 best rock songs of 2022, in ascending order, as voted for by the fine readers and online followers of Classic Rock, with some extra room afforded to that all-important Top 10. And if you want even more list-based shenanigans in your life, don’t forget to also check out Classic Rock‘s 50 best rock albums of 2022.
