Best Songs of All Time

301 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

Come on! This song is much better than 202!

This song should be un 70 place at least

302 Titanium - David Guetta Titanium - David Guetta

This song is amazing. It was one of the best songs in that year. It has a meaningful message. Sia's vocals are FANTASTIC! David Guetta and Sia make GREAT songs! It should be at least in the 70-80

Amazing song! I don't understand, all my relatives hate this song and I'm the only one who likes it! Best song ever!

This song will be a classic. Sia does a phenominal job with the vocals and David Guetta delivers a great message with the lyrics. Couldn't have done a better job.

Totally agree with the person who liked turn me on.

303 Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil

A song that tells about what's happening to our planet as man lets it rot.

i absolutely love this song its awesome

304 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix

Dude Hendrix is just like the greatest musician ever definitely top 10
right behind queen Zeppelin
- idso27

Hendrix, easily the greatest guitarist to live, he inspired, and revolutionized most genres, and musicians his music deserves to be at the very top of this top ten without a doubt, just listen to songs such as Along the Watchtower, Voodoo Chile, simply, mind blowing!

I'm pretty shocked that nothing by Hendrix made it into even the top 50. This song is probably one of his most iconic, and no one has mentioned it yet! This man was a genius! @

I firmly believe that All Along the Watchtower and Purple Haze both deserve a higher standing.

This song is awesome

305 YYZ - Rush YYZ - Rush

the best song ever by the best band ever..you dare to say there's a better drummer than Neil Peart!!

Lol 367? This should be at least top 50. This song is a milestone in learning to play drums (or guitar or bass) if you can play this you're pretty damn good.

No, Niel is one of the best drummer ever, no argue what so ever, but don´┐Ż't forget 2112 album though.

306 Lateralus - Tool

Lateralus. The album, the song, sheer genius. Allow me to explain. You see in music each line is comprised of measures and these measures affect how the timing in the song occurs such as the pulses and the drum beats etc. Most songs stay in either 4/4, 2/4, or 8/8 time signature, meaning four beats for every measure, etc. This songs chorus, comprised of three lines, descends by a beat each line. Thus you have 9/8 for the first line, 8/8 for the second line, 7/8 for the final line. If you thought THAT was crazy, that is only the beginning. You see, Lateralus is the title track for Tool's 2001 album "Lateralus. " Now Lateralus in and of itself was a complex song, and most fans thought it a bit awkward the way the syllables were laid out in the verses. This song actually acts as a gateway to a re-structuring of the albums tracks for a "Holy Gift" (as it is known by their fanbase). You see on The Holy Gift version, each track leads perfectly and coherently into the ...more

The most technical band that I have ever listened to. There should be more tool on this list

This is must hear song, the greatest song ever that created by tool. Maynard is very genius artist

Personally I like Pushit most, but this is definitely deserving to be higher on this list.

308 Cemetary Gates - Pantera Cemetary Gates - Pantera

I don't like Pantera in general, but this one's a serious classic. Beautiful pinch harmonic, a lovely solo; its more of a power ballad. Easily top 20 material.

I'm a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery...
The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
It's nothing new for him to see
I didn't ask him why
I will remember
The love our souls had
Sworn to make - htoutlaws2012

I couldn't believe my eyes when I didn't see Pantera on the list. They are simply amazing!
The intro, the solo, the end!

309 The Trooper - Iron Maiden The 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

313 All For Love - Sting, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams All For Love - Sting, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams
314 Switch - Will Smith Switch - Will Smith

316 The River - Bruce Springsteen The River - Bruce Springsteen

It's one of the most devastating songs I've ever heard. He builds the story beautifully until he completely breaks your heart with "now those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a curse...is a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse? " The theme of the song, the lyrics, melody and the way Bruce feels it and sings it all make this song a masterpiece. This one deserves to be in top 30!

It is a really good song and should definitely be put on the list for people to vote for. It is a major part of his music career and should be shared throughout the world.

Less than David Guetta. No words. Just... sad.

317 Paradise - Coldplay Paradise - Coldplay

This song is so powerful. Best song ever.

Beautiful song with touching lyrics

Paradise, Viva la Vida, and We are the Champions are the best songs of all time

320 You Know You're Right - Nirvana You Know You're Right - Nirvana

Amazing song. Kurt's voice is great in this underrated masterpiece

This is the best Nirvana song! It shouldn't be this low!

This is definitely the best composition of any song ever. The song is sad, energetic, and awesome. This is the best voicework by Kurt Cobain ever
