Which One Of Aretha Franklin's Hits Was Just Named The Best Song Of All Time?

Aretha Franklin has a back catalog of iconic that have lived through generations. To name a few, we’re talking “I Say a Little Prayer,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman”, “Chain of Fools”, and “Think.” However, the single that made the No. 1 spot of Rolling Stone’s “500 Songs of All Time” was her legendary cover of Otis Redding’s “Respect.” The music publication noted that the song “catalyzed rock & roll, gospel, and blues to create the model for soul music that artists still look to today” and helped influence the likes of Mariah Carey (and countless others).

According to the outlet, Franklin stated in her 1999 the anthem was inspired by “the need of the average man and woman in the street, the businessman, the mother, the fireman, the teacher — everyone wanted respect.” Joining the “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)” hitmaker in the top five is Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone,” Sam Cooke’s “Change Is Gonna Come,” and Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power.”
