Best Alternative Rock Songs of the 21st Century


The Top TenXW

1Bring Me to Life - EvanescenceV2 Comments
2Holiday - Green Day

Beats any Linkin Park song if you ask me. - BoredJeff02

Amazing song by Green Day... They nailed it!

YEEES! If any song to make this list, this is a perfect nomination!

3I Hate Everything About You - Three Days Grace

While I am glad this is here, it needs to be higher up. I understand some think this is touchy, though.

I can gurantee all that none of song in this world would motivate to move on, beside this. 3day Grace created a master piece of emotionly broked down rage of a broken heart. You say music, lyrics, The voice... Every moment in this class song is EPIC.

This is definitely a good song I'll admit, also I'm getting sick of lists that have Linkin Park overshadow TDG all the time. Linkin Park is mediocre but their not that good. - BoredJeff02

4Waiting for the End - Linkin Park

I Still love Linkin Park, with the changes of music style from hybrid theory

I really love whatever linkin park cook. They are just awesome... Maybe I would have chosen other songs of linkin park for #1 spot but still it doesn't dissapoint. Cheers

Amazing song never get tired of listening to it;)
It makes me remember all my good moments

One of My Chemical Romance's greatest
