Best rock tracks to test your music system

Whether you’re looking for some new music to listen to or something that will put a pair of headphones through its paces, you’ve come to the right place.

At CNET we test audio gear all the time, and rock music is essential for hearing what a speaker, soundbar or amp can do. Here you’ll find some of my favorite songs for testing audio devices. From singer-songwriter confessions to dance floor jams to music for your 3 a.m. listening session, there’s something for every music fan. And every music system.

While you flip through the slides, I encourage you to listen to the matching playlist on Tidal or Spotify.

This roundup is an adjunct to The Audiophiliac’s top music tracks for testing speakers and headphones, which lists mainly classical, vocal and blues recordings.
