122The Day That Never Comes - Metallica
123Rooster - Alice in Chains

This is the best song ever layne you rock rip jerry keep rocking - justicerieth

These lists suck. Really...67... I'm just laughing at how lame this is. Especially the fact that CHRISTINA AGUILERA is WAY ABOVE THIS... Seriously?

AIC has a ton of great songs, this is one of them. One thing this band could and can stand up and be proud of is that their music was always honest. They didn't have to make up song just to get better sales... They sang about their lives, and that will always sell. One of the most underrated bands.

How is this not up there

124Estranged - Guns N' Roses

One of the most underrated songs of all time. Should be in top 10 in my mind.

Love this song, any song that last more than 8 minutes and still get you is a master piece

Hands down, one of the rarest masterpiece

125Hall of Fame - The Script

This song makes me motivated, give out the energy deep in me unlike any other song. It should be at least top 30, this place is not suitable for a song that lifts you up the way it does.

"Standing in the hall of fame! And the world's gonna know your name... Cause you burn with the brightest flame! " this song is fantastic, it EMPOWERS you..

This is a song that tells you that anyone can make it to the top if they try. And it sends out a message that everyone is a champion. There is no first or last there is just you and your talent

This song's good its like a song you would listen to when you're running

126Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Tears for Fears

One of greatest hits of the 1980's, really meaningful lyrics, talking about how people wanting power and the miseries that it can be cause by war...

nothing can compare to this song. one of the greatest things, of all time
- biscuits

12721 Guns - Green Day


21 Guns is such a fantastic song! It's really strong and meaningful, and the lyrics are brilliant. - badwolfgirl

Good song, no doubt. But where the heck is Basket Case?

What! Iggy azalea fancy and bad blood ranked higher than it?!?!?!

128Monster - Skillet

This is just a great song. What more can I really say? I could listen to it again and again and not get bored. It's so epic!

It's scratching on the walls
In the closet, in the halls
It comes awake
And I can't control it
Hiding under the bed
In my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this?
Make it end!

I feel it deep within,
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster - htoutlaws2012

129California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas

I can't believe this song isn't on here. The song is #89 in Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and it's been covered by every artist imaginable.

It's my favorite song of all time because I love California, the timeless, soul-warming melody that is both sad and hopeful and makes me tear up every time I hear it.

I would've thought the beach boys version would be on here but this is a great song

Just Love the Mommas and the Poppas

Good Song by the Mamma and the Papas!

130Moment of Surrender - U2
131Extreme Ways - Moby

This should at least be in the top 100. An amazing piece of music, and I hate to see so many ridiculous songs above it. - PositronWildhawk

This is one of the greatest songs of all time without a doubt.

This should at least be in the top 100. - PositronWildhawk

132Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Now, I've only listened to about 2 or 3 of these guy's songs but Blackbird... holy cow! The acoustic riff at the very start DEFINES the song's mellow background and Kennedy's voice is stunning and it's not what you would expect out of a rock (well... alt. Rock) band. The drumming is great and the guitar solo... It's pretty self-explanatory. First it start off with what I think is Kennedy's solo and then when you reach Tremonti's you will get mind-blown with his skills. They are AMAZING. Just listen to 30 seconds of anywhere in the song and you will see why I voted this song.

Alter Bridge is the best band of 2000's, Myles is the best songwriter I have ever seen, Mark is the only man to make a stand against Slash, Brian is a secret weapon and Scott is new Bonzo. Those guys are awesome. For me every song of them is great. I voted this song because it's an AB song. Needles to say... I'm proud of being a member and occasionally cyber soldier of AB Nation.

I can not explain that how the song is great.. You just need to listen it.. Its solo part after 4. Mins you can't imagine.. It's best I have ever heard before.. Just listen the song before you vote.. Thank you

If Metallica can make the top 10, so can this one

133Changes - Tupac

Definitely my favourite song of all time. Yet I guess people who like this sort of music don't spend their time voting on these sites constantly

Tells a great story, about how we should all just get along. The lyricism of this song is insane! - roblist

A pristine example of the good soul Tupac shakur had, and a reminder that the world has forver lost an inspiration from the heart of the west coast.R.I. P

This is a masterpiece of a song!

134Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve

Just absolutely fantastic, incredible lyrics, uplifting mood, fits into so many situations, just fantastic

Oh My God. HOW is this song all the way down here?! It's one of my favourite songs, I just can't stop listening. I have no idea why this list is so crappy. WHERE is the Paramore?! Is it even possible not to like it?! Also, Smells Like Teen Spirit should totally be no.3, after Bittersweet Symphony and Misery Business. So a word of warning to the creator of this list: Change it or I will bite you. HARD.

One of best lyrics EVER! it's too emotional and realistic, really that song has to be in top ten =S!

Should be higher

136House of the Rising Sun - The Animals

A great song that deserves to be on this list, and is better than half the other songs on it. One of my favorite songs that sends a shiver down my spine every time I listen to it.

hendrix did an awesome cover on this song. its great an instramental, but you can kind of feel the tone and feeling of this great song

Classic . . . epic . . . great guitar . . . I LOVE IT! Higher up, please.

Should be in top 15 in my opinion

137Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Well, the Beatles at number 3. Some of you hardcore Beatles fans might be furious at me for not putting "A Day in the Life" or "Let It Be" at number 1. Again, it's my opinion. Anyways, amazing message that is sent out in this song. This was one of the greatest Beatles songs ever made undoubtedly. The violins bring anticipation when they gradually get louder, and the vocals from the band when they sing the chorus bring delight to my ears. Truly a masterpiece.

Wait a second... This song was once NUMBER 3 on this list? It's been voted down to below PARTY ROCK ANTHEM to 117? How can this be? Is this what the world is coming to? - VaticanCameos

I've always loved the Beatles, and I'm twelve. Almost thirteen. and Eleanor Rigby is one of my favorites. It's beat is so cool.

As people said the Beatles are just above any competition or silly list. Too many of their songs can be on this lst.

Greatest song of the world. Simply.

Great Song about Someone he loved a groupie!

1401985 - Bowling for Soup

This song was my favorite song when I was young. Brings back so many memories and I still know all the lyrics

Love this song! Lyrics are cool and the vocals are phenomenal. I love how it pretty much sums of music in 1985.
