Well the criteria states "top 365 by Americans in the 20th century". I scanned the list(which are all fine choices), and "Satisfaction" made the list. Last I checked, the Stones are from the U.K.

I also noticed only about 20% of the members actually voted.

Are they kidding me or what? As the Knickerbockers once sang in 1966, "Lies, Lies."

Notable American omissions: George Gershwin, Elvis Presley, Al Jolson ("The Jazz Singer" soundtrack), Rogers & Hammerstein, Frank Sinatra, Cole Porter, Chubby Checker ("Twist").
Rated too high: ”You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" (The Righteous Brothers), ”I Heard It Through the Grapevine” (Marvin Gaye), “Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay” (Otis Redding), “Stand by Me” (Ben E. King)
