21 Pain - Three Days Grace Pain - Three Days Grace

Amazing song, this song made Rock music look good, I'm a Three Days Grace hater but I admit I absolutely love this song and "Never Too Late".
The meanings are deep and touching, the music is entertaining, the PAIN screams is artistic and the whole song is resemble of Art, Drama and Will.

With respect and honor I say "WELL DONE THREE DAYS GRACE"!

Why isn't this song in the Top 10?
It's Three Days Grace's Signature!

This song is one of the Rock masterpieces of this decade... and not just that, this song is everywhere, I've heard it in many series like Grey's Anatomy, CSI: New York and I've seen it live on Ghost Whisperer.
I mean it wouldn't be that famous if it isn't awesome!

Hear it and you will feel true addiction!

Why isn't this song #1
It's the most beautiful song I've ever witnessed, though I don't really like 3 Days Grace but this song is a masterpiece!

It really gets you motivated and fully engaged...
The lyrics, the music, the melody and Adam's fantastic voice really gets you addicted to this song, you will keep hearing it on and on and you'll never get bored of it!

I prefer Animal I Have Become

23 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence

The best songs are the ones that take you out of your world, and plunge you in theirs. Evanescence reaches to you with a hauntingly beautiful voice, deep soulful lyrics and music at the end that completely drowns you in its wake.

24 Everlong - Foo Fighters

This powerful song captures the essence of the Foo Fighters perfectly and is so unforgettable. I feel very confident saying that I will never tire from hearing its memorable riff and Dave's voice. The way that the song stops, goes kinda quiet and then explodes is amazing!

Simply the BEST BAND of all time. They are everything a band should be. Excellent musicians, great songwriters, and funny as hell.

This should be top 5 at least! Such a good riff for such an awesome song

One of the best songs of Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl and the FF are awesome!

33 Hero - Skillet Hero - Skillet

I've never seen a song so enthusiastic, so mind catching, so entertaining and heart stopping!
This song is a mind blower!

Why the Hell isn't this song on the top of this list, the judges really need to re-filter there results...

Skillet... is our "Hero"

This the greatest song ever! Skillet should be in the top ten because they give so much passion, so enthusiastic, so mind catching, so entertaining and heart stopping! Our hero... Skillet

I love this song. It should be in the top ten.

34 Ode to Sleep - Twenty One Pilots Ode to Sleep - Twenty One Pilots

Everything that Tyler creates is always pure genius, this is no exception! Twenty one pilots has yet to make a single song that doesn't contain raw emotion presented in a format that is comforting to everyone. Ode to Sleep deserves recognition!

'You see a pen I see a harpoon' is the best most relatable lyric in the song (for me) everything in this song is so true and powerful but just by hearing that one line I knew exactly what Tyler meant

35 I Write Sins Not Tragedies - Panic! at the Disco I Write Sins Not Tragedies - Panic! at the Disco

If you've even heard of Panic! At the Disco, you've most likely memorized this song. Its not my favorite of their songs, but definitely a classic.

Everything panic has done and stuff Brendon has done out of the band deserves so much more recognition, he's so talented is not even fair

Panic! At the Disco is amazing, there really should be more of their songs on here

Way more of their songs should be on here
