The Best 7 Inspiring Rock Songs

Updated on October 30, 2016

In this life we need encouragement now and then in order to stay on top of water. The challenges we face on several occasions can force us to give up pursuing our dreams. Not only that we can give up wanting to live because trials never seem to end and we never seem to be moving forward at all. As such many of us end up drowning because the tide was too strong to keep aloft.

The following are rock songs that will uplift your spirit, encourage and motivate you. They are songs which will give you a reason to keep moving on despite what may come your way in a negative way. Hope you will enjoy them!

1) Stand In The Rain, By Superchick

When storms hit, our faiths are shaken. We lose hope. We begin developing a sense of fear. Won’t the storm kill us? And, when it begins raining, we rush into a nearby shelter fearing we might die.

This song is encouraging us that we need to stand strong. We shouldn’t be moved. We need to face the challenge(s) as soldiers ready for war. We should not back down afraid we will drown. Trust yourself. Believe in yourself.


So stand strong in the rain

Stand your ground

Stand up when it’s all crashing down

You stand through the pain

You won’t drown

And one day, what’s lost can be found

You can stand in the rain.

2) We Live, By Superchick

People say life is unpredictable. You never know when your time on earth is nearing to an end. Therefore, the question remains, “What are you doing with your life?” Are you making it hard for yourself to life a meaningful life? Are you doing all you can to live a life that was meant for you? Are you fulfilling your dream?

Apart from how we live, it teaches us the importance of forgiveness and of loving others even those who have wronged us one way or another. Also, it encourages us that we should never give up no matter what we face on this walk of journey of life.


We live, we love, we forgive and never give up

Coz the days we are given are gifts from above.


3) Am I Wrong, by Nico & Vinz

This song is asking an important question: Is it wrong if I decide to go a different way than the one I used to go? Is it wrong when I decide to make changes in order to fulfill what I’m aiming for?

There are times in life when we have to make changes in our lives, if we want to fulfill our destiny. There comes a time when we have to begin to do things differently. People will object by offering opinions that are discouraging and depressing but as long as you know what you are doing is for a better future, then go right ahead and do the necessary changes.

Second Verse

Am I tripping

For having a vision?

My prediction

I’m a be on top of the world

Walk your walk and don’t look back,

Always do what you decide

Don’t let them control your life,

That’s just how I feel oh whoa

Fight for yours and don’t let go

Don’t let them compare you, no

Don’t worry, you’re not alone

That’s just how I feel.

4) What Are You Waiting For, By Nickleback

Nickleback is asking in this song, “What are you waiting for?” What are you waiting for in order to reach the top? What are you waiting for in order to begin pursuing your dreams? What are you waiting for to commence moving on?

“Are you waiting for a lightning strike?” as a sign you need to start acting? Or, “Are you waiting ‘til time is right?” Are you afraid of making mistakes? Don’t let fear hold you back.


You gotta go and reach for the top

Believe in every dream that you got

You’re only living once so tell me

What are you, what are you waiting for?

You know you gotta give it your all

And don’t you be afraid if you fall

You’re only living once so tell me

What are you, what are you waiting for?


5) Don’t Stop Believing, By Journey

There is a common saying which says, “If you don’t know where you are going and road will take you there.” There are times we lose hope and stop believing we will ever make it. We feel it’s the end of our world or it’s over for us, we will never get another opportunity. So, we end up being directed by the wind wherever it’s blowing. We take any road because we no longer have hope, wherever it will lead us, we don’t want to know.

Just a small town girl

Livin’ in a lonely world

She took the midnight train

Goin’ anywhere

Just a city boy

Born and raised in South Detroit

He took the midnight train

Goin’ anywhere.

The above verse shows what happens when we stop believing. We just take any road wherever it will lead us. Kind of we are zombies with no hope for tomorrow.

6) Dream On, By Aerosmith

In the song, “Every time I look in the mirror All these lines on my face getting clearer The past is gone It went by like dusk to dawn,” it’s evident at times when we look back we regret we didn’t do anything worthwhile. Start dreaming. Never stop dreaming. Dream and do all you can to realize it.

Dream on, dream on, dream on,

Dream yourself a dream come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on,

Dream yourself a dream come true

7) Hey Hey, By Superchick

We shouldn’t live our lives whole-heartedly to please others. Why? We might lose our real us and our value in this world. More so, some will mock at us while others may offer negative comments, “She can’t do anything without us.’ And, never bow down to anyone except God. You can do it. If you live life to please others then you are not living your life at all but you are living other people’s lives. You don’t need anybody’s selfish or boastful favor in order to succeed.

Why try to be like someone else

When you can only be yourself

No one can sing the song you do

Be true, be legendary you

So I won’t sell out

Even if the whole world thinks I’m crazy.
