Kiranjais6 be my buddy at Facebook

24 Minutes - Madonna

3Given 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!

4Brave - Jennifer Lopez

5Take a Bow - Rihanna
very sweet song with catchy beats


6Hot N Cold - Katy Perry

7Mercy - 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.

8The 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

9Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park
This is the best song compared to others on the list!

10Touch My Body - Mariah Carey
I wanna touch your body and you a beautiful lady =) x

The Contenders

11Miles Away - Madonna

12Lollipop - 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


13A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

14Nine 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


Awesome... So Glad to See P! Atd up here!

15Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

16Disturbia - Rihanna

17Piece of Me - Britney Spears

18Decode - Paramore
The only good thing about Twilight! Sigh

19I Kissed A Girl - Katy Perry

20Inside the Fire - Disturbed

21Psychosocial - Slipknot
Is this list real or big fake. c'mon Psychosocial was the most amzing song of 2008 after All nightmare long.


Hell yeah! Half of these people nk the list use autotune to help them (except slipknot, Metallica, and Linkin park) but this song is great! Compare lyrics to this and a pop or rap song

Slipknot- And the reign will kill us all
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see!
The preservation if the martyr in me!

Lil Wayne- Shawty wanna thug
Bottles in the club
Shawty wanna hump
You know I like to touch
Those lovely lady lumps
(Says Nigga 797 times)

So who's smarter and greater lyricwise?

22If I Were a Boy - Beyonce
Kiranjais6 Facebook be a buddy

23Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold

24Viva la Vida - Coldplay
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!


I don't know why, but that song makes me cry.
