When it comes to rock music, no subject is off limits. For this list we're ranking the best rock songs about dreams, and we want you to vote up your favorites. How many good rock dreaming songs can you think of off the top of your head? Below you'll find popular songs that you've definitely heard before, but also some more underground rock songs with dream in the title or lyrics. Rock songs about dreamers, dreaming, daydreams, or metaphorical dreams are all fair game on this list. Aerosmith’s classic “Dream On” as well as Weezer’s nerd anthem “Only In Dreams” are both on this list.
