5 Love Songs for the Love of Rock
By: Maura O'Malley
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Here are some Valentine’s songs for you. Cheesy? A little. These songs? Definitely not—that’s why they made the cut.
AC/DC “You Shook me All Night Long”
Try to find a better song to sing along to. Bonus points for air guitar. Oh, and it works for Valentine’s Day, right? Right.
Foo Fighters “Everlong”
And I wonder if anything could ever be this good again? Nope. Definitely one of the best love songs thanks to the combination of sweet lyrics and Dave Grohl’s shout-singing.
Led Zeppelin “Whole Lotta Love”
Nothing says love like a signature Zeppelin guitar riff and Plant’s high-pitched vocals.
Nine Inch Nails “Closer”
Technically, this one’s more lust than love, but there’s a fine line between the two, yeah?
The Smashing Pumpkins “Luna”
… And every girl swooned hearing Billy Corgan croon “I’m in love with you” on repeat.
