To compile our list the 100 Greatest Songs of the Century – So Far, we reached out to a large group of artists, producers, critics and industry experts who sent us ranked lists of their favorite songs. The list was determined by ballot. Voters submitted their 25 favorite songs of the century, which were tabulated and used to create our final ranking.

You can also read the list in the July issue of Rolling Stone. We’ve relaunched the magazine with a new look and we think this list perfectly embodies our commitment to giving you the deepest sense of the best music happening now and shaping the future.
