The Top Ten

Burning In the Skies - Linkin Park
That's how you call a LINKIN PARK song!
Beats all others in here. Linkin park is a juxtaposition on all the best bands ever and rules the earth. It beats Metallica, Poets Of the fall, Breaking Benjamin, Green Day, and IS A GOD!
Linkin park know to make awesome music...
Every time I listen to this song I fall more in love with it...
Linkin park truly are God of Music
THe great songs of linkin Park:Burning in the skies, IriDescent, new Divide, what we don't know, catalyst, Numb, in the end, paper cut, held in hands, What I've done, Not alone, rolling in the deep, waiting 4 the end

2Give Me Everything - Pitbull
Best song ever especially it being pitbull... Much better than kanye west... Yeah. Well why don't you add maroon 5 moves like jagger? That is amazing.
Best song ever and it's the first time I've heard it! It's just to amazing. I bet this is the best song ever because they use so good lyrics
Absolutely, positively fantastic and fabulous. Too good to be true!
Amazingly brilliant to sweep your feet off!

3Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO
Who gives if it's the popular one? The music is so infectious - everyday I'm shuffling!
This music is so addictive! I passed the whole summer saying "Everyday I'm Shuffling! " I don't care if it is commercial. I normally don't hear that type of songs, but this one made me addicted to all of LMFAO's songs, and made me become a huge fan of them! They're just so different and funny, the thing the music industry was just in need.
This guy dominated the bill board and many world chart for months! Linkin park how pathetic. I love them but that song didn't even reach the top 10 or it wasn't that famous unlike party rock anthem. Party rock anthem played every where. Whats long with these people omg.

4I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre
This will smash up Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne
This is definitely the best song of 2011, Eminem always does make the best songs of each year
It features Eminem. That's why its the Best. And Dr. Dre n Skylar grey have also done Great Job. Please check my youtube Channel- PRATHAMESH207. It Has great Eminem Remixes.

In my opinion, this is the best song I have ever heard in my life (much better than most songs these days) and also the best song of Katy Perry
So catchy! Literally, the first time I heard this song, I couldn't stop singing it for hours!
This song deserves atop ten position... Lyrics awesome... Just has no end to imagination..
I <3 you katy perry...

6Rolling In The Deep - Adele

THE BEST. A song that won grammy award for best record is at 12th you've got to be kidding me the vocals leave you breathless

Listen to sample

7On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft Pitbull
I think this song is quality! It has all the moves the beats and all of the talents we need in a song. Simply made and acted.
Before this, I've never been real familiar with Jennifer Lopez or Pitbull. But both of them are awesome in this song and I just don't know why I like this more than "Give Me Everything" but I just do. This is surprisingly awesome!
Just outstanding! Such a good Party song! It makes you just wanna dance to it! FANTASTIC! I'm having to write a lot here! Great
Listen to sample

8So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold
Simply amazing!
Very deep lyric!
This is the best song from Avenged Sevenfold!

Amazing performance.

Music, lyrics, vocals are perfect.

Avenged sevenfold rocks.

No doubt about a grammy for Hard rock performance.

9Born This Way - Lady Gaga
I love this song because

1. It tells you, you are just the way GOD wanted you to be.

2. This is an ANTIBULLY song.

3. She WROTE it.

4. The music video was very ACCURATE on the message.

And 5

5. THis song is just FUN to listen to.

This song shows that you can have a well thought out POP song, that can give people hope that they are not totaly losers. She wrote this song so that adds a bonus to it's GREATNESS. Each of her songs has a purpose. Like pokerface=I haven't found the meaning yet. Anyway this is a good song VOTE HERE tell everybody you know to vote here. Even people you don't know!
The BEST of lady Gaga... According to me! She really Put up a lot of Hard Work in the Making of Such a Superb Audio-Visual! But "Marry the Night" n "You and I" too deserve a spot in the TOP TEN LIST!
This song is extremely important, unlike other songs that simply entertain, and Lady Gaga really wanted to convey something important... think about it. So I think this song best in 2011

12My Heart Is Broken - Evanescence
Evanescence is amazing. This song should be higher up!
Listen to sample

13Someone Like You - Adele

The greatest song of the last 10 years, and I find it at the 11th position... All the people seem to be deaf...

She is so legitimate, everyone is a giant fan of her my sister even has her saint name as adele why do people chose lincoln park over the best singer of the 21st century

This is the best song of 2011 and one of the best song of all time, but it is at n0.8. I really don't like this website anymore because in almost all list, LINKIN PARK is rulling, and JB is hated so much


Listen to sample

Xcellent Track! Makes you wanna listen to it over and over again...
Awesome just awesome like all the other songs from eminem
Listen to sample

15Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5
THIS IS THE AWESOMEST SONG OF THE YEAR! Should be in the top ten at least! Makes everyone move like Jagger!
It just ROCKS! I was actually looking for this song in the top ten. I was shocked that it is not there! Please vote for this song people! Bring it to the top 10!
It's a good song should be in top three songs... It really rocks... I've got the moves like Jagger. Is one of my favourite songs

16Paradise - Coldplay
This song is just amazing! I listen to it approximately 35 times per day. I just love this song! I mean, what the hell? Number 25! Linkin Park just sing crap while Coldplay's music can actually be heard, nice meaning, nice tune. Every time I listen to this song, I forgot about this world and I feel like I am in a paradise.
One of the best song of coldplay.
This song is the best song by coldplay, why isn't this song in the top ten list.

17Back to December - Taylor Swift
She's the best! Her lyrics are so awesome... No one can beat Taylor Swift's Back To December. and also her awesome songs in her album like mine, speak now, story of us, ours
And I Go Back To December All The Time
This song is personal, classic, beatiful by Miss Taylor Swift. She's an amazing songwiter. Back to December should be on the top 10 list.

18These Days - Foo Fighters
How is ' LMFAO and Pitbull higher than Foo Fighters!? This song has exceptional lyrics and vocals, the guitar riff is amazing, and Taylor Hawkins' drumming is amazing as always. Another thing; this song/band stand out from most of the other ones on this list: it's all ligit. No auto-tune, real drums, written by Dave Grohl, not some random ten people get paid to write lyrics that a kindergartener can write. This song isn't farmed out for money, this song is great and everything about it is powerful; the meaning and vocals. This is definitely the best song of 2011, tied with every other song in this album, of course.

33Re-Wired - Kasabian
A quality song from a quality band from Britain. Much better than all that R^^B trash from the States. Kasabian Rules! Who needs dance routines when you have Kasabian.
When in doubt, trust Kasabian to come up with a quality record. Thank god these guys haven't sold out to the Simon Cowell audience.
It's one of the more enjoyable songs of the year. Even when we had a load of garbage from the likes of Rhianna and Lady Gaga, Kasabian is still making quality songs.
