Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 9XW

161Knights 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?

166Working Man - Rush
167I 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

168I Can Only Imagine - MercyMe

The song is very beautiful and inspirational. It is a song that many people can relate to. I hope people would listen to the song and want to love God.

i believe that it should be in the tops because i really love and i seriously can only imagine it myself and jesus' feet and standing before the throne of God and thats all we can do right now is imagine... imagine and believe

This song describes a moment I can only imagine.

My ears are bleeding

169Killer Queen - Queen

My second favorite song ever next to bohemian rhapsody and it should be higher than this because no ones better at song witing than Freddie Mercury

This is one of my favorite Queen songs. The Others being I Want to Break Free and Body Language.

best song ever
great solo
i,m not crying

This song is Killer, and it came from Queen.

170Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

Simply the best, ozzy has been going at it since the beginning of metal and is still rocking. Long live the prince of darkness!

This is Ozzy's signature song for a reason. It talks about the dangers of drugs and it has some kick ass guitar riffs. This is definitely one of his best hits! I love you, Ozzy!

I loves this song. Its hard rock with just a touch of insanity. My only real issue with this song though is it is not higher on this list. I mean seriously its hard core epicness. :D I say it should be number one.

WHAT THE HELL? Why isn't this in like the top 10? This song is awesome!

171Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones

The greatest rock song ever created

It's recognized as one of the best Rolling Stones songs ever, so how can it not be at least in the top 20? The riffs and Merry Clayton's backup vocals are absolutely out of this world.

I'm not a big fan of The Rolling Stones but this song is really catchy and good. The main reason I'm voting for this though is because nickelback crap is above this and nickelback sucks and The Rolling Stones are great. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Who doesn't know at least the intro to this song?

174Paranoid - Black Sabbath

It's definitely not the best, but it should be higher than 100! The tune, although very simple, is truly brilliant and catchy. Plus, the more you listen to it, the more you get a sense of being Paranoid.

Darn you people who've voted for songs like maroon, fray, n all... Duh, what? Thet should 1st try to listen a couple of seconds' music from this song... They'll change their false notion of music... Damned songs ain't deserving to be above paranoid... If this is at 274 then the number system starts from 274! HAIL Ozzy Ozbourne

Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
people think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah! - htoutlaws2012

This is the best song ever - Gh_player

175Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

I don't want to live on this planet anymore

This is not one of the best songs of all time, it's ok compared to other modern mainstream music. In other words it sucks. Anyone who voted this song does not appreciate good music. - Songsta41

The fact that this is above Carry On Wayward Son makes me panic for the future of humanity.

Do not listen to LMFAO, listen to better music like Led Zeppelin or Iron Maiden

176Under Pressure - David Bowie & Queen

I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who actually likes modern music and older music equally, but this is the most underrated song of all time. Too bad Vanilla Ice had to ruin it!

Holy jesus why is this at 418, this is the pinnacle of music itself, FREDDIE AND David BOWIE COLLABORATION?!

Best Bowie song ever. Best baseline ever. That's all I really need to say. - MontyPython

How is this below Michael jackson?

177Art of Life - X Japan

It's not just a song, it's a rock symphony. After X Japan, bands they are often compared to sound hollow and meaningless to me. X Japan's music is filled with emotion and has a classical edge to the composition that leaves me dumbstruck listening to the guitars, drums, orchestra, and piano weaving around each other. And Art of Life is the masterpiece. The fact that it's 30 minutes isn't important, it's that there isn't a thing in those 30 minutes that doesn't work perfectly. It expresses the heaven and hell of living. And the piano solo is like being reborn. Please do NOT listen to this song lightly. It demands your best sound system and all your attention.

AWESOME. Really worth the 30 minutes. Epic song, epic lyric, everything it's just perfect.

All the songs of the list are great songs, each of them has this human feeling a great song must have, but Art of Life isn't only a song, it's a fight from death to life, it gives to listen the way to resist to shadows and to come back to light.

OH. MY. GOD! Should definitely be higher on the list. Worth 30 minutes of your life. That eight-min piano solo by Yoshiki is just pure masterpiece, I dislike long songs but this is an exception. WE ARE X!

179Civil War - Guns N' Roses

Love this song, still get me through the end

Took me awhile to like the song, but now I do. - matty925

Civil War is arguably the greatest song in the history of mankind, I mean the song goes up and down, left and right High and Low it gets deppressing and optimistic, this song is followed by One from Metallica and Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, it is absoulotely amazing, wonderfully awesome, amazingly great, I think it's the perfect song, I'm a 14 year old Syrian kid from Damascus and I have almost listend and memorized every song in the top 100 list and I can assure you Civil War is the best one but I have to admit that because of the horriple civil war that's happening in Syria right now this song has effected me greatly and I may value it more than other people because it tells the story of my reality and so maybe I'm a little biased because the civil war in Syria does in fact feed the rich while it burrys the poor

180Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

I'm a huge fan of the bee gees & This is undoubtedly their best, one of the most popular songs of all time
Vocals of all three gibbs' is just mind blowing in this song not to mention the ecstatic beats that were looped from their other single "Night Fever"

Have you people never seen Saturday Night Fever?

Yes, this is the BEST song ever. Why in the world is it not #1?

This should be in the top ten why is it 248!
