The Top Ten

A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
I've never even heard of this song in my life

24 Minutes - Madonna

3Take a Bow - Rihanna
very sweet song with catchy beats


4Lollipop - Lil' Wayne
RIP Static Major, you will be known for putting together one of the best hooks in the decade.

Shawty wanna thug
Bottles in the club
Shawty wanna hump
You know I like to touch
Your lovely lady lumps
I usually don't like this mainstream stuff but I admit I love this song. It the "Thriller" of the 21st century


5Given Up - Linkin Park
It's not a single, but it have a powerful scream that will pound all the songs around here!
It is a single -_-
Bye bye bitches! LP for a life! Keep rock&metal alive people!

6The Day That Never Comes - Metallica
Jennifer lopez, rihanna, lil wayne, 30 secs to mars... Total crap. For that reason Metallica gets my vote. As well being a badass song.
Death magnetic was there comeback album from st anger and this song is the reason why this album is so great
What the day that never comes has more emotion and takes more talent than every piece of dirt in the top ten combined... Metallica STILL RULES!
[Newest]Best song must be on top of list

7Brave - Jennifer Lopez

8Viva la Vida - Coldplay
I am so pissed of at the voters. this is an instant classic and one of the greatest songs of the modern era. number 24? This has got to be the best selling song of 2008 as well (the album is - 8 million copies just that year producing the largest number of digital downloads of any record). Viva la Vida is amazing and shame of all of you for voting otherwise. shame on you.
And who is the troll who votes linking park for every list. linking park sucks. this list shows that the new generation of people have TERRIBLE taste in music. I'll give anyone here a dollar if anyone who voted for given up by linking park ( by the way I have never heard of that song in my life) could tell me what artist produced the dark side of the moon. probably no one knows because they are stuck listening to linking park. and by the way, likin park sucks.
Seriously, this song even won Grammy and it is at 24... Rihanna and Katy Perry type overrated singers are at the top. 21st century people doesn't have the taste of music at all!
35!? This is not just the best song of 2008: it's the best song ever created by human being!


9Touch My Body - Mariah Carey
I wanna touch your body and you a beautiful lady =) x

10Hot N Cold - Katy Perry

The Contenders

11I Kissed A Girl - Katy Perry

12Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park
This is the best song compared to others on the list!

13Disturbia - Rihanna

14A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

15Mercy - Duffy
Catchy as hell and a Brit on top of that. I'd pick Duffy over the US slags any day of the week.


This lass from Wales was one of the brightest up and coming talents of 2008.
Why this isn't number 1. Maybe becouse it isn't American. Shame.

16If I Were a Boy - Beyonce

17Rock And Roll Train - AC/DC
This Is The First New ACDC Song In 8 Years
And I Think They Did A Bloody Good Job With It
Should Be Much Higher

18Nine In the Afternoon - Panic at the Disco
nice song!
i can hear this song all time
best song from panic at the disco


this and viva la vida are my favs from 2008


19Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

20Paper Planes - M.I.A
