The Top 40 Charting Hard-Rock Songs: Part 2

Welcome back to the show! We're counting down the Top 40 hard rock songs of all time, according to Billboard (sort of...). I'll take a moment to recap Nos. 40-31.

40. "Don't Tell Me You Love Me," Night Ranger 39. "Cumbersome," Seven Mary Three 38. "Trampled Underfoot," Led Zeppelin 37. "Back In Black," AC/DC 36. "Sweet Emotion," Aerosmith 35. "One," Metallica 34. "Black And Blue," Van Halen 33. "Live And Let Die," Guns 'N Roses 32. "Everybody Wants You," Billy Squier 31. "Metal Health (Bang Your Head)," by Quiet Riot

If you're in the dark as to what's going on, please refer to Tuesday's first half of the show for the qualifications and my self-imposed limitations during the selection process and breakdown of my results.
