Huh? Rolling Stone Booted 16 Huge Songs Off Of Its 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time List

List RulesVote up the songs that most should have stayed on the list.

Rolling Stone magazine has turned heads with its revival of its "The Greatest Songs of All Time" list, which for the first time in 17 years tries to do the impossible: Name the 500 greatest songs of all time. We all know it's a fool's errand. Rolling Stone knows it's a fool's errand. But alas, adding new songs meant songs that were included in the 2004 list simply had to go. 

But did they though? 

Of course, the removals made room for worthy newcomers like Outkast's "Hey Ya," Lorde's "Royals," Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," among others. But still... 

We've compiled the songs that got booted from the list - and now it's time for you to vote up the ones that should have stayed, no questions asked.
