Best rock anthems of all time

I've been thinking about the best rock anthems of all time, the songs that, when you hear them, make you want to stand up and salute.

Here's a list off the top of my head, not in any particular order:

1. "People Have the Power," Patti Smith
2. "All Tomorrow's Parties," Velvet Underground
3. "London Calling," The Clash
4. "Talent Show," The Replacements
5. "Born to Run," Bruce Springsteen
6. "Veronica," Elvis Costello
7. "Better Things," The Kinks
8. "Radio Song," R.E.M.
9. "Zoo Station," U2
10. "Bangladesh," George Harrison

hmm - well - not sure these are "anthems"
but right now get me going !

1. Sly & The Family Stone - Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin
2. Billy Preston - Outa-Space
3. Beach Boys- Heroes & Villains
4. The Who - Dogs Part Two
5. Tiny Tim - Tip-Toe Through The Tulips
6. Nilsson - Jump Into The Fire (Long Version)
7. The Soft Boys - I Wanna Destroy You
8. Modern Lovers - Roadrunner
9. Love - Seven & Seven Is . . .
10. Isley Brothers - It's Your Thing
. . .plus anything by The Beatles at any time

this could change at any moment - except for The Beatles . . .

I just fell over this list...and then I fell over. Rock anthems? All nice songs for sure, but rock anthems? Since you have alreday hung up your shoes, time to hang up your rock and roll walker Seth !

Is this list for real? If you want a list of rock song you want to salute to, where is "For those about to rock (we salute you)" AC/DC?
