In this issue’s cover feature we bring you The 100 Greatest Songs Of The Century (So Far) – as voted for by you. From superstars, veterans and newcomers alike, the past 20 years have seen the release of plenty of great songs. And from the list, we take an extended look at some of them, including…

Marillion: inside the band’s latter-day masterpiece

Thunder guitarist Luke Morley takes us through a track from the band’s renaissance record.

How Ghost mainman Tobias Forge came up with a pure 80s rock-club banger.

Andrew W.K.’s brilliant upbeat party anthem.

Black Sabbath: inside the metal legends’ crowning career-end masterpiece, in their own words.

Halestorm: the song that catapulted them into the big time and into our Top 100.

Which Green Day track brought old fans back on board and pulled in millions of new ones.

How can you choose just one song from metal giants Iron Maiden’s gem-studded catalogue? Well, you did.

Which one track in particular changed a lot of people’s minds about not liking Rush.

Foo Fighters: the belter they originally shelved because “we didn’t think it was any good”. Hey, we all make mistakes.

AC/DC: Picking just one great song from a band who have so many classics is a brain melter. Thankfully, one of them picks itself.

Some songs seem to be so unique that they occupy their own space, outside of time and place. The song that you voted the best of the century (so far) is one of them.

Elsewhere we look back at the life and music of Little Richard, the flamboyant self-acclaimed “architect of rock’n’roll”, and this issue’s regular features include Mungo Jerry, Mick Box, Ashley McBryde, Humble Pie, Glenn Hughes and more.
