The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Complicated - Avril Lavigne

Sorry, this song defines 2000's music. There was no bigger pop superstars at the decade other than Britney Spears and the Anti-Britney movement princess, Avril Lavigne. This song deserves a spot in the Top Ten. And Avril Lavigne is the best Pop Punk singer/songwriter ever! - Anggun

The landmark of the new decade of pop music. She's the icon. - Anggun

Avril (Ramona) Lavigne - Anti-Britney. Mr. Pugh, a teacher, prefers listening to Miss Lavigne instead of The Dixie Chicks. - playstationfan66

22Beautiful Day - U2

Heard in Nim's Island (2008) during the end of the film where Nim, Alex and her dad are happily on her island. - playstationfan66

29American Idiot - Green Day
30Chelsea Dagger - The Fratellis

Sort of song you would hear in British pubs all the time. And for good reason too. This was why they won a Brit Award in 2007.

31Fighter - Christina AguileraV1 Comment
32Independent Women Part I - Destiny's Child
33B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

This song sounds like some insane person screaming into a microphone about random crap.

34The Scientist - Coldplay

This by far my favorite song of the 2000's. It's so beautifully written and the music video is my favorite of all time. I just love Coldplay.

It's Coldplay's best song, the best piano ballad of the decade. So, it's better than Viva la Vida.

Come on who doesn't love this song? Perfect transition between piano and guitar, and a beautiful song for sure.

35Idioteque - Radiohead
36My Humps - Black Eyed Peas
37Wake Up - Arcade Fire
38Fell In Love With a Girl - The White Stripes
39Deathbed - Relient K
40Shiver - Coldplay

One of my favourite Coldplay songs of all time! Too bad it's overshadowed by that overrated yellow...
