181Buddy Holly - Weezer

229 eh? What's not to love about this song?

Buddy holly! I know u died but there's a song about u called American pie!

182Aerials - System of a Down

Best System of a Down song for sure.

183On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons

WHAAAT?!?!?! 202?!?!? This song is too good to be in the 200's! "i'm on top of the world and I know, it's a long way up cause it's a long way down! Get up now! Get up! Get up now! " Dove Cameron sang this song too!

Nah, we need to put Elton John, Celine Dion, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and many more on the top 100 before we deal with Imagine Dragons. But to be honest, Coldplay should be higher than Imagine Dragons. - okcnaline

I don't know if any others people like this but I like it

This song encourage me in the hardest times. It makes me wnat to climb every mountain. Another perfect song from Imagine Dragons

Favourite U2 song ever. Should be in top ten

185Thnks Fr Th Mmrs - Fall Out BoyV1 Comment
186Remember Me - Anadel
187Ready Or Not - Bridgit Mendler

Bridget mendler is just an actress that started singing

Haha. This is pop. Good song, but I'm very surprised to see this on the list.

What is this doing here?!?! Who even is this?!

She's a singer/actress. Also, she's on here because you aren't the only person on her who gets to vote/add. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

188Jeremy - Pearl Jam

Somehow my favorite song is ranked lower than my least favorite song: Fancy by Iggy Azalea. How did that even make the list? - Songsta41

I love this song. It's the absolute best. Just THE best. - Songsta41

Great song with such a sad story

189Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

God how I love this song! Didn't vote for it, but had to comment something.

190Hurricane - Bob Dylan

This song was done for Rubin "Hurricane" Carter and it's so powerful. You can feel the injustice and the fight of afro descendents American's for civil rights and still one of the best song of Bob Dylan with Like a Rolling Stone and Blowing in the Wind.

The best song ever! It is the classic song of American justice.

Gotta be said, yeah. It's Bob Dylan.

193The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin

This is such a great song, one of their best. It's mellow and has some great tunes and I love the whole theme of the song. One of my favorites.

I've never heard a song better then this one...Period!

194The Memory Remains - MetallicaV1 Comment
1951979 - Smashing Pumpkins

Immortal song. Not like all of the crappy songs up there you listen 3 times and switch to something else.

I am in utter disbelief that this is not in the top 100. This song is haunting and amazing. Gangnam Style is ahead of this... By a lot... That should tell you a lot bout people these days.

Great song! Is every losing their minds? 223,not except-able!

196Rap God - Eminem

How is this not higher up? Its built on pure talent

Another Eminem Track Hit The Charts And this time its Rap God one of the most Downloaded songs Ever with Eminems HiGh Speed Rap

I love this song. It's lyrical genius. Put this up against Jay-Z or Kanye West, it's not only the speed (I memorized it, it's at aprox. 4:25) but how it isn't the same lyrics repeated in every line. *cough* Nikki Minaj stupid ho *cough* *cough*

197The Sounds of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel

Beautiful song that stands the test of time - JooJoo

Hypnotic and relaxing. Their music takes mi to another world. Also love Scarborough Fair.

Classic in every sense of the word...
Total masterpiece of all-times!
Should be number 1!

I like the Disturbed version the best.

198Crawling - Linkin Park

The most emotive, hard hitting screamer! Deserves a place as a representative of it's genre!

This is one of the best songs from Linkin Park I also love Lying from you and Faint

Linkin Park is the best rock band of our generation, but come on there r many other songs for them better than this one and should be put onto the list, like : faint and papercut and new divide. Crawling is a good song, but not the best they made, but it's a cool song any way!

I love the whole album hybrid theory!

199Like a Prayer - Madonna

I just love it. The gospel choir the music style everything perfect best song ever

Definitely my favorite song of all-time. The song was brilliant for its time and a huge risk for a pop star like Madonna. Going back to when it came out, this song sounded like nothing else that was happening back then and nobody ever thought its sound was "mainstream" enough to relate to the public. It has stood the test of time.

Amazing! Should be ranked higher! Song is yearning and passionate in only a way Madonna can deliver!
Madonna and a few other artists I love has unique voice. Her voice and the words of this song fit perfectly.

I've been a Madonna fan for over 30 years and am amazed this song isn't in the Top Ten! The woman is an icon. I've seen her perform this song live twice and she is amazing. Love this song.

200The Trooper - Iron Maiden

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back - htoutlaws2012
