Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin The 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!

142 Big Poppa - Biggie Smalls Big Poppa - Biggie Smalls

One of the greatest rap songs of all time

If biggie smalls sees this he's gonna pop a cap in someone's ass

If only his career was as big as his stomach

143 Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine
144 Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix

How are songs by Jimi Hendrix at 208? Purple Haze at 171, Castles Made Of Sand at 208, All Around the Watchtower is too low too. But yet 30 Seconds to Mars is somehow better than him. Kids these days...

145 I Remember - Deadmau5 I Remember - Deadmau5

Definitely one of my favourite songs of all time. Catchy, uplifting, addictive; it's amazing. Will never get over the fact that it was ever in 290th. - PositronWildhawk

I know two Deadmau5 songs but I don't know the titles

146 That's What You Get - Paramore That's What You Get - Paramore
147 Forever - Drake Forever - Drake

Stars the best 4 rappers of their generation in one single song. It fits evey athlete's situation and it's a modern work of art.

148 It's All Coming Back to Me Now - Celine Dion It's All Coming Back to Me Now - Celine Dion

This is my favorite song of all time. And no one can deny the fact that when this song was released, you actually thought or have said, this song is really great. - RLAAMJR

Spirit song, the words really mean. Everything was right back to ourselves... You who determines your path, your destiny, not fate determine our lives

This song is still one of the best love songs of all time and should be in the top ten best songs in history

That's a wonderful song. Nothing can disclaim that.

149 Demons - Imagine Dragons Demons - Imagine Dragons

This song is so beautiful and the lyrics are amazing. It's a song everyone can relate to; passionate and perfect

Imagine dragons is a great band, most of their songs are catchy like Demons, Radioactive, its time etc.

The clanking drum-clap, the burbling guitar, the sinister piano, and the burnt vocals come together so perfectly with the stone cold lyrics. - WonkeyDude98

This was the song that got me in to music - RecklessGreed

150 Tom Sawyer - Rush Tom Sawyer - Rush

540?! Are you serious? I mean, there are plenty of other good songs on this list, but Rush is the best band ever formed (hands down), and this is their best song! If this doesn't go higher, I think I'll mean mean cry!

I love RUSH. They are indeed great. They are not the greatest band of all time. That would be the Beatles. This is however possibly one of the (if not the) greatest rock songs of all time.

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit - htoutlaws2012

This is the best rush song made. Still not that good though

151 Jeremy - Pearl Jam Jeremy - 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

155 War - Nas War - Nas
156 Working Man - Rush Working Man - Rush
157 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

158 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

An amazing song, singer and movie. Maybe the best ever made!

159 Knights of Cydonia - Muse Knights of Cydonia - Muse

The singing and guitar riffs go perfectly together, and the drumming fits in just as well

This song is an amazing rock song that deserves a higher spot on the list. It has a great guitar, bass, drums, and outstanding vocals!

Kick ass riffs, amazing vocals, awesome drumming, great bass and one of the best songs live, EVER! This should definitely be first place.

Best song of the best band, why so underrated?

160 Octavarium - Dream Theater Octavarium - Dream Theater

This must be higher. This song is a masterpiece! 24 minutes of pure musical genius, beauty, and harmony. (That was cheesy)

But seriously, Dream Theater might be a Metal band, which is why this song may not be well recognized, but it's a softer song, amazing singing, lyrics, and solos from literally every instrument. I get chills every time I hear this song. Must listen.

Seriously, everybody needs to listen to this song, it's indescribable - ryanrimmel

I wholeheartedly believe that this song at least deserves to be in the top 10. I understand why it isn't though, coming from a sub-genre (Progressive rock/metal) of a genre (Metal) that is already underrated and overlooked in the public eye. However, for those who truly wish to experience pure musical bliss/perfection, I heavily encourage to give this song a try so that hopefully you, like those who have already discovered it, might understand why this song is so great.

None of the songs above have anything on this. These are popular, but the true masterpieces are left in the dust. This is a perfect example. This song is the most amazing song in the history of life.

Best song ever made. If you have not heard it, listen to it.
