81Give Me a Sign - Breaking Benjamin

"I can see you starting to break, I'll keep you alive if you show ke the way... Day light dies, black out the sky, does anyone care, is anybody there. take this life, empty inside, I'm already dead, I'll rise to fall again..." Awesome lyrics!

82Concrete Angel - Martina McBride

This is a beautiful song and anyone who has been through a form of abuse will cry listening to this song and watching the video, you MUST watch the video.

83Sorry - Madonna
84Ain't No Reason - Brett Dennen

This song really makes you think about what the world really is, and what the real problems are. Also, the video is fantastic,

85You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones

I am shocked and appalled that there are numbers pop fabricated tunes sung by semi talented individuals who got lucky - needless to say are you going ever going to have a craving for 'Never gonna be Alone' by Nickleback? Yea I think not.

86Even the Gods Cry - The Turtlenecks
87Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

One of the most beautiful rock songs ever,

One of the most beautiful rock songs ever.

88Blowin' In the Wind - Bob DylanV1 Comment
89Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique

Fantastic choice. Absolutely belongs on this list. Not all that ecstatic that it is only one spot above a Taylor Swift song. I feel this song tells a much deeper story than most of the songs on here. As far as lyrics go this song embodies a struggle all us human beings go through.

"Everyone trying to be trife, never face the consequences
You probably only did a month for minor offenses
Ask a n**** doing life if he had another chance
But then again there's always the wicked that knew in advance
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block
But that's what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
Devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top
There's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot"

Tells a great story, this song is the most underrated song of all time, and it goes the same with Immortal Technique. The brilliance of this song makes it one of the greatest not only Rap song of all time, but Best Songs of all time. A great lyricist... - roblist

A really strong song which after you finish hearing it you end up traumatized! Seriously

90Numb - Linkin Park

Can't you see that you're smothering me?
'holding to tightly,
Afraid to loose control,
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Is falling apart,
Right in front of you'
Brilliant, for anyone being compared to something bigger

There was a time when I used to hear this song dedicating it to my father...
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes...
Just love the lyrics

This song is immaculate very very good song

Should be in top 10

91Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

I hear this and think of my dad.
I can see everything about him in this song.
Kelly Clarkson is the best singer to have ever come off a talent show!
Should be in the top 3 with I'm Ok-Christina Aguilera and Somewhere only we know-Keane

I really really love this song. Kelly is my idol and I love her voice
