Best Hard Rock Songs of the 21st Century

No Heavy Metal, No Soft Rock, only pure Rock Music that gets you pumped up, and never leaves your memory.

The Top TenXW

1It's My Life - Bon Jovi

I defy anyone not to use their hairbrush as a microphone and belt this one out in your bedroom

This is nowhere near rock. It is BON JOVI and it simply isn't rock. Nobody is going to get pumped up from THIS.

Nothing to say. This song helps you when you are broken.

2Crawling - Linkin Park

One of the best songs of LP and truly one of the greatest songs of all time. It's been years since I listened to it and still I listen to it. It's so Roocking

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface - parth.jeet

Crawling is one of the best songs of LP

It won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance, and Linkin Park is one of the greatest rock bands of the 2000s, so Crawling should at least be a bit teensy-weensy higher, like at #2.
