21 Walking Disaster - Sum 41
22 Pain - Three Days Grace

Amazing song, this song made Rock music look good, I'm a Three Days Grace hater but I admit I absolutely love this song and "Never Too Late".
The meanings are deep and touching, the music is entertaining, the PAIN screams is artistic and the whole song is resemble of Art, Drama and Will.

With respect and honor I say "WELL DONE THREE DAYS GRACE"!

Why isn't this song in the Top 10?
It's Three Days Grace's Signature!

This song is one of the Rock masterpieces of this decade... and not just that, this song is everywhere, I've heard it in many series like Grey's Anatomy, CSI: New York and I've seen it live on Ghost Whisperer.
I mean it wouldn't be that famous if it isn't awesome!

Hear it and you will feel true addiction!

Why isn't this song #1
It's the most beautiful song I've ever witnessed, though I don't really like 3 Days Grace but this song is a masterpiece!

It really gets you motivated and fully engaged...
The lyrics, the music, the melody and Adam's fantastic voice really gets you addicted to this song, you will keep hearing it on and on and you'll never get bored of it!

I gotta admit this song was great but the first dude posing as a hater got a long road to become an actor.seriously? come on man only JB fangirls act like that! /: even an unborn baby could get that u are huge fan /:

23 Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park

Unique, and with awesome meaning!

Best lyrics I ever heard.this is not someone song.this is for everyone. Just enjoy and mend within

Awesome song... can light up any environment.. nobody can ever get tired of listening to this marvelous song.. all hail Linkin Park...!

24 Everlong - Foo Fighters

This powerful song captures the essence of the Foo Fighters perfectly and is so unforgettable. I feel very confident saying that I will never tire from hearing its memorable riff and Dave's voice. The way that the song stops, goes kinda quiet and then explodes is amazing!

Simply the BEST BAND of all time. They are everything a band should be. Excellent musicians, great songwriters, and funny as hell.

This should be top 5 at least! Such a good riff for such an awesome song

Really? >...blink-182 above ANY Foo Fighters song? , hella dumb B.

25 Wonderwall - Oasis

Mainly britpop,but while britpop is inspired from alternative rock so it should be here,anyway great song - zxm

26 You Know You're Right - Nirvana

One of my favorite songs of all time. - MontyPython

27 Ode to Sleep - Twenty One Pilots

Everything that Tyler creates is always pure genius, this is no exception! Twenty one pilots has yet to make a single song that doesn't contain raw emotion presented in a format that is comforting to everyone. Ode to Sleep deserves recognition!

'You see a pen I see a harpoon' is the best most relatable lyric in the song (for me) everything in this song is so true and powerful but just by hearing that one line I knew exactly what Tyler meant

28 Let It Happen - Tame Impala
29 Here Comes Your Man - Pixies
30 Perfect Day - Lou Reed

Great song. - Alpha101

31 Renegades - x Ambassadors

This song will be rembered for genrations. About 20 years from now, looking back they will be 1# on this all time chart

32 Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold

Perfect lyrics for the perfect rhythm... This is more than just a song which makes one feel taken away to the new world...

This is a song which defines good music with great lyrics=the best song ever...

One of a kind... I repeat... One hell of a kind

33 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

I like it but you should put A little piece of heaven in the number one!

This is metal not alternative

34 Hero - Skillet

I've never seen a song so enthusiastic, so mind catching, so entertaining and heart stopping!
This song is a mind blower!

Why the Hell isn't this song on the top of this list, the judges really need to re-filter there results...

Skillet... is our "Hero"

This the greatest song ever! Skillet should be in the top ten because they give so much passion, so enthusiastic, so mind catching, so entertaining and heart stopping! Our hero... Skillet

I love this song. It should be in the top ten.

Why the hell isn't this in the top 5

35 I Write Sins Not Tragedies - Panic! at the Disco

If you've even heard of Panic! At the Disco, you've most likely memorized this song. Its not my favorite of their songs, but definitely a classic.

Everything panic has done and stuff Brendon has done out of the band deserves so much more recognition, he's so talented is not even fair

Panic! At the Disco is amazing, there really should be more of their songs on here

Way more of their songs should be on here
