Best Rock Songs of the 2000s


The Top TenXW

1Chop Suey - System of a Down

This is "The song", time variation, good voice, good band. All good

You kiding me. It should go all the way up to 1st

1. Isn't this Metal?
2. I respect System of a Down a lot, they're very good in their style, which I just don't enjoy, and it probably deserves a stop in the top 10 (probably even 5) but seeing at 1 just kind of bothers me. When a song like Knights of Cydonia Exists seeing this at one just... Egh

2Last Resort - Papa Roach
3Headstrong - Trapt

It's a great song I love when he pauses then screams.

4The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

Awesome song! You have to listen to this... Also try to get your hands on Dance with the devil. This is one of the best rock groups ever.

Best band ever this list is filled with Breaking Benjamin and is topped off by their number 1 single The Diary of Jane can't beat them

This... This got me hooked to rock!
Loved it straightaway. Beautiful!

5Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

why is last resort up there... its a fairly good song and all.. but this should be number 1 and number 2 must be chop suey...

This list does not have 21 guns. Like come on. And only like one Green Day song. Green can make the the top ten all there's. Green Day IS THE BEST.

Green Day is a legend and it deserves to be number one. Holiday and I walk alone are amazing.

AMAZING SONG! Great lyrics and lots of meaning.

8Tears Don't Fall - Bullet For My Valentine
9Bring Me To Life - Evanescence

Awesome song best amy lee

The best song ever

Best song she sings so pretty and the backup singer is hardcore

10Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park

6 Lp songs in this list just adds to the bands' legacy. But Breaking the Habit is amazing live. The great lyrics and sound just shows the bands talent. Definitely led the band into their new sound. - RickLp27

Amazing lyrics and vocals by Chester, just plain awesome. - lukestheman4

Awesome lyrics. Its something you will keep on reciting long after you finished listening. Everything is just brilliant. There is no one to compete LP.

This is artistically better than chop suey and everyone knows it.

The Contenders

11Uprising - Muse
12Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace

Three Days Grace is a purely inspirational band who plays and sings about life. Amazing band, love Adam and Barry and everyone else :D This song really rocks. Give it a listen for sure, and some of their other songs!

It was a difficult decision between what I've done and animal I have become...
But, I chose this one because it felt like more personal and deep than the others... Brilliant song


I have this song and the album and it is really good. They are inspirational.
