Not quite sure what the definition of that would be or what qualifies as one, but I found this online and a list of the top 100. Probably tons of these types of polls out there so one is probably not the definitive over any other.

Mine would have to be, hands down

Interesting that Born in the USA is much higher than Born To Run from Bruce. Shows what the "public" thinks as opposed to long time fans of his

These lists are always subjective ... some of their entries would be on my list, some not list ... but based on their criteria (arena-rock sound often with lyrics celebrating rock music itself and simple sing-a-long choruses, chants, or hooks) I would add the following (maybe replace some of the songs which are/i] included in the list)

Wild Thing - Troggs
Lust for Life - Iggy Pop
Shout - Isley Brothers
Sunday Bloody Sunday / Pride in the Name of Love - U2
Walk on the Wild Side - Lou Reed
