The quest continues to determine the Greatest Ever Rock Song, according to the Geek. In the fifth round 11 songs rocked it out and were rated by over 400 users. Check it out here:
[POLLS] The Greatest Rock Song Ever, Round 5: The Top 10

1085 songs were nominated. You can see the nomination and discussion thread here: The Greatest Rock Song Ever: Nomination and Discussion Thread
We have cast our net wide. As well as classic and hard rock, all types of rock are eligible - Jazz rock, Indie rock, rock & roll, metal, punk, blues rock, etc. But fear not, picky rock lovers, the poll includes a 'not rock' option for you to express your unhappiness at inappropriate nominations. Otherwise rate each song based on how good a Rock song it is.
Hopefully in the process of this contest we will all learn about a lot of great rock music that we didn't know about.

This round takes the Top 5 songs based on average rating from the last round and lets them gp toe-to-toe in The Final. In addition the 6-11 songs fight it out for their final position.

All the rounds will be announced here, so subscribe if you don't want to miss them:

So what happened in the last round? The main measure used for qualification for this round was Average Rating. To calculate this I awarded points for each rating: Best (4), Awesome (3), Great (2), Good (1), Okay (0), Bad (-1), Awful (-1), Not Rock (-1). Note the change to the scoring for Awful and Not Rock to reduce 'gaming' of the scoring system.
I don't publish the results of the average ratings to retain some mystery to the contest.

Top 10 by Most 'Best' Votes:

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
2 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
3 Baba O Riley - The Who
4 All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
5 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
6 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
7 Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
8 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
9 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
10 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

This list is a straight count of the shows getting the most 'Best' ratings in the last round. Four of the Top 5 make the Final Five.

Top Ten by Most 'Awful' Votes (in the Top 10)

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
2 Baba O Riley - The Who
3 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
4 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
5 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
6 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
7 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
8 Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
9 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
10 All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix

This list is a straight count of the shows getting the most 'Awful' ratings in the last round. Two of the make The Final.

Top Ten by Most 'Not Rock' Ratings

Comfortably Numb.

Is the only song that got many 'Not Rock' ratings, with 7/397 votes. I'd hope so given that we've got to the best songs.

Top Most Votes (aka Most Well Known) in the Top 11

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
2 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
3 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
4 Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
5 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
6 All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
7 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
8 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
9 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
10 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
11 Baba O Riley - The Who

This is a straight count of ratings. The 3 of the Top 4 make the final, along with the #11.
