AllMusic Review by

Only in the random world of digital media would one expect to find a compilation that includes Mr. Big's 1980’s hair metal-folk jam “To Be with You,” Ministry's brutal industrial classic “Burning Inside,” the Violent Femmes' iconic folk-punk jam “Blister in the Sun,” and soft rock icon Christopher Cross' most midtempo offering “Ride Like the Wind.” It would seem that DMG's 100 Hits: Rock Anthems' sole criteria for inclusion would be that the song exists, but despite the scatterbrained nature of the compilation, its unpredictability, as well as its listenability are kind of admirable.
