222 Creep - Radiohead Creep - Radiohead


This song will never bore you and when you sing it, you will fell release. The tune is rightly expression of the lyrics. It deserves to be on top of the list. It is a rare piece.

Love the emotion of the vocal and the lyric, it is really rare to find song like this. Sadly undervalued in this chart.

Best Radiohead Song.

223 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Love this song. I have heard all of A7Xs songs, and as much as I love ALL of them, this one takes the top.

Amazing vocals from m shadows, fantastic lead guitar from synyster, brilliant rhythm to match from zacky, outrageous drumming from portnoy and the rev, plus great bass from johnny to complete it. Top song, best no doubt


Dragged ya down below
Down to the devil's show

Flesh is burning
Until the end of time here
Nothing stops the madness,
Turning, haunting, yearning
Pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah
Ooh, it's your nightmare! - htoutlaws2012

I love Avenged Sevenfold, and this is my favorite sevenfold song

224 We are the World - U.S.A. for Africa We are the World - U.S.A. for Africa

It is difficult to choose the best song in Michael Jackson's legacy. All his songs are unique and breathtaking. The hymn "We Are the World" definitely deserves our recognition.

This should be also in the list because of the lyrics that can touch any heart of all mankind. And it got a revival version where many of the popular artist this time has do it for the people who needs help.

225 Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie

Bowie is one of the absolute best. The whole Scary Monsters album was fantastic.

The highest song by David at 302. THERE'S NO JUSTICE!

Not the Best David Bowie song. But still great.

226 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

333, really? Seeing that Michael Jackson, Beatles and G&R (who are undoubtedly great artists, but honestly, there are not gods or something) all have around 10 songs in the top 100 while one of the greatest and most influential metal bands of all time has their first song at 333 is just sad. While BTROD is not their best song, it's just beautiful. It has both chilling and hard sections and a godly guitar solo. No hate against the other artists, but this should at least be 50.

This song should be near stairway to heaven it's just as epic

Not one of my favorite priest songs but it was the first I found on the list an its at 316 that's rediculousy low even for just this song it's got a good solo 2 good one in fact and great lyrics

227 Awake and Alive - Skillet Awake and Alive - Skillet

Skillet the best Christian rock band

Come on guys, it's Skillet! For crying out loud, vote Vote VOTE!

Once of the first songs apart from Hero that Skillet got Jen Ledger signing in. Her and Jon Coopers voice work so well together. Also the song itself cannot be faulted.

Sorry I only listing to the alternative version of the band which is called frying pan

Such a good song, deserves much more credit

232 Time To Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman Time To Say Goodbye -  Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman

This song brings you to a unbelievably glorious, joyful, as well as far, deep, and away neverland experience... So relaxing yet meaningful...

This song makes me feel hopeful and optimistic, it gives me the push to continue my life delightfully, great voices and great singers.

A time which we all experience, must go through. This song causes me to be aware of where I am at in whatever moment is present. I am inspired to appreciate, enjoy and cherish this, because the 'Time to Say Goodbye' is always there, opening the door to new possibilities while a memory is forever rememebered.

Amazing uplifting song

233 Highway Star - Deep Purple Highway Star - Deep Purple

Classic High Energy, needs to be way higher!

This song started Heavy Metal...Still Great today!

234 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

An absolutely hectic song hailing Pink Floyd original head member, Syd Barrett, who mentally went sick and had to be taken away. The entire song, at 20-something minutes, is numbing, whimsical, an horrifying. As if Van Gogh was putting Starry Starry Night into words.

This comment is one of the best thing, I have came across on internet today.

Best song from Pink Floyd. Then whish you were here, dogs, etc. Best song of all time. Richard Wrights dreaming synth. Sound, David Gilmour fantastic guitar layers. Instrumental first 8 minutes is a highlight in modern music. The first 3 minutes is like awaking in the dessert. The last beautiful section...This song of almost half an hour has iT all. Must Be at number 1, then maybe stairway to heaven. This song is heaven on itself. Not just the stairway to iT. And for someone (syd barret) who already is in heaven. Hè listens to iT and is overwhelmed with pride, I'm sure.

A true masterpiece. Deserves a place in the top 20 at least. The entire band gave it their all. Especially David Gilmour.

This is the best musical achievement in centuries. - RalphSaad

238 Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Guns 'n' Roses Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Guns 'n' Roses

Tried by many... but perfected by only 1
Guns N' Roses... surely deserves ranking in top 10

this is the second greatest song only past by stairway to heaven

239 Fighter - Christina Aguilera Fighter - Christina Aguilera

Christina was apparently, at first, a bubblegum pop singer packaged by music industry for new potentially-imbecile fans, but afterwards the situation changed. Her album Stripped showed she was a real artist, she had great vocals, great songs including great rhythm, and meaningful lyrics. This song is just a masterpiece, to me, the best of Christina along with the song Beautiful.

this song shows the power of christina, she has the best range and vocals and this song shows her talent! - olgapepsi

This song is very nice...
It gives me strength when I am weak,
Amazing My Christina

One of most inspiring songs, I am in love with christina and her vocals
