Best Rock Songs of the 2000s

The Top TenXW

1Chop Suey - System of a Down

Easily the best rock track, and song, of the decade - from the best rock album of arguably the 80's, 90's and 00's. Impeccable and actually improves as it goes on, which is pretty rare for modern music. The ending chorus is heartbreaking, soaring, scorching, and utterly empathetic, striking an elegiac tone while delivering a riveting conclusion.

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

Why is this song so high up. It's repetitive and the lyrics are idiotic

2Boulevard 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.

Green Day blows! Just awful

3Bring Me To Life - Evanescence

No other song can take its place, my favorite song of all time... It is so nicely sung... All credits goes to Evanescence I play it over and over again

A real masterpiece... Thanks evanescence to create such a perfect song...

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

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!

Overrated, overplayed and just overall garbage. - BoredJeff02

5Last Resort - Papa Roach

It sounds so awesome. The lyrics mean something that many people can relate to and the background riff at the beginning is so great.

Cut my life into pieces, this is my... - rowie855

8Snuff - Slipknot
9The Pretender - Foo Fighters
10Uprising - Muse

I think uprising is great, but certainly not their best. Try Stockholm Syndrome, The Handler, Citizen Erased, and Fury instead

The Contenders

11Breaking 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

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

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

Despite how overrated this song is it's more worth of at least 6th or 4th place. It's a strong song about drug addiction and in my opinion deserves to be a bit higher than 12. - BoredJeff02

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

13Prayer of the Refugee - Rise Against

Awesome song. Everything about it is awesome. From the vocals to the beat and most suprisingly (though not for this band) the meaning. The beauty of this song lies not in the beat, the vocals (though they are still awesome) but the people they give in recognition. This really deserves to be at the number 1 spot.

14Seven Nation Army - White Stripes

A thumper to get your body filled with chills

A classic rock song. Absolutely brilliant riff, groovy vocals, psuchedelic drumming, this song deserves number 1.

15It's My Life - Bon Jovi

This not only brought Bon Jovi a younger audience and a new decade of success, it also defined the 2000s decade.

A defining song of the Rock genre of the time!

I could say that rock is dead l. Bon Jovi is a rock genre pioneer at the 2000s. Now stupid electroic music are just a disgrace for something that called "music".

16No One Knows - Queens of the Stone Age

Awesome band, especially with Dave Grohl as drums!
