202Here Is Gone - Goo Goo Dolls
203Like Suicide - Seether
204Little Motel - Modest Mouse

Many people may have never heard of this song because it is overshadowed by Modest Mouse's other hit "Float On". But don't underestimate this heart felt ballad that evokes the sadness inside us all and lets us all know "What We're Waiting for". - Paragor34

205Whatever It Takes - Lifehouse

Lifehouse portrays the feeling many ex's feel in this song. The feeling of wanting the relationship to continue, even though it may be impossible. - Paragor34

This single song set the bar for any alternative dance song. Since it's original release it has been sampled to many times to count. - Paragor34
