The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Juicy - Notorious B.I.G.

One of the three anthems for hip-hop, and arguably the best-sounding. It's lyrics are the archetypal started from the bottom lyrics, but it reflects Biggie's rise to fame perfectly. - SwagFlicks

22Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
23Life on Mars? - David Bowie

When it comes to iconic, Bowie should always be on top! - Lotuscandy

24Again - Archive

They are often compared to Pink Floyd, in an Electronic version. This tune lasts 16:20 of pure amazingness (don't know if that's even a word), anyway, they are beyond words! - Lotuscandy

25Bela Lugosi's Dead - BauhausV1 Comment
26Changes - 2pac

One of the three anthems for hip-hop, this is arguably the most important, yet the least popular out of the three. And can you really argue, why with it's lyrics aiming for equality between the races? - SwagFlicks

27Baby - Justin Bieber

Lol, what is this stupid song of meaningless crap doing here?

This song is iconic, albeit in a different (and undeserved) way. - WonkeyDude98

28American Idiot - Green Day

Green Day was popular before American Idiot came out (2004). - peaceswagtv

29What's Going On - Marvin Gaye

In what is probably the most well-known song from the soul genre, Marvin Gaye brings it all with the anti-violence theme, the amazing singing, and the jazzy instrumentation. - SwagFlicks

30Perfect Day - Lou Reed

The song you shouldn't listen to when your heart is broken, but you do anyway, ending in tears... and hit repeat, because it wasn't enough, strange how it's sometimes good to wallow in self-pity! - Lotuscandy

31Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
32Stay (Faraway, So Close!) - U2
33I Am the Resurrection - The Stone Roses
34Paranoid Android

Best song by one of the best bands.

35Hound Dog - Elvis Presley
36Midlife Crisis - Faith No MoreV1 Comment
37The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
38Black Dahlia
39Stand - R.E.M.
