25Hung Up - Madonna

This dance track gives everybody that listen to it the real meaning to dance music. Always exciting, never boring and definally history making. Madonna never souded the same after this song. The great opening for her best album

Um I think that numb by Linkin Park should be somewhere on this list. I think that it is a great song and should at least be on the list. But ok

Cool list

For a Dance/Electronica song, Hung Up is a masterpiece!

Pure Gold from the Queen, the one and only. This is the true meaning of quality, perfection on all levels.

26The Day That Never Comes - Metallica

Best Metallica's song of the 21st century. Death Magnetic is a good album and Metallica proved they're always at there best with the Death Magnetic tour

Whats the matter guys,
This song definitely deserve much more better position than this.
At least in the top ten. The intro of this song, the solo by kirk is awesome.
Come on vote for it

27Grenade - Bruno Mars

This song should be number one. It is raw and has real human emotions, not just real human autotune. He is the real deal and the music video is unique. It is not just of a giant dance party like half of today's music videos R. It has a bold and controversial ending that leaves the viewer saying "WHAT? " He commits suicide. He lost his love and he killed himself. Bruno Mars understands human nature and love, as well as loss. He has talent. I love you, Bruno!

One of the best Bruno Mars songs of all time besides Wild girls

Great song. great music, lyrics, and beautiful meaning and voice
