The Contenders: Page 2

21 Complicated - Avril Lavigne Complicated - 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

22 Beautiful Day - U2 Beautiful 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

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

31 Fighter - Christina Aguilera Fighter - Christina Aguilera V 1 Comment
32 Independent Women Part I - Destiny's Child
33 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

Or ya know someone speaking the truth about crooked rich people and politicians send poor people to fight the wars they made

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

34 The Scientist - Coldplay The 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.

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

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