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.
