Work of hard rock art!

126 Different Colors - Walk the Moon
127 Feels Like We Only Go Backwards - Tame Impala

Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal song in the past 20 years. This is Tool's best song. When they Sign a contract with iTunes I will buy a 50 dollar card and buy every single Tool album. So hurry up! If I get this song on my iPod, I will be in heaven!

130 Unbelievable - Emf
131 Kings and Queens - 30 Seconds to Mars

Just amazing... Mind blaster

One of the best 30 Seconds to Mars song... You can't imagine... Just feel

Close your eyes and let the goosebumps take over!

132 It's My Life - Jon Bon Jovi

No one can listen to this just once. Bon Jovi reinvents to new generation of audience and how.A timeless classic.

133 Uprising - Muse

One of their greatest songs and an anthem of civil change. Amazing rock sound. The opening song of their massive Resistance tour is meant to be heard loud. Undeniably catchy and will be one their defining songs.

Best song ever, it is AMAZING 'a fat cats had a heart attack' :D

Way better than most of the other songs and is actually alternative not alt rock

This has to be the one...

Come on. How is this song not in the top 10?!? And also, how is nickelback ahead of pearl jam?!?!? What

135 Dollhouse - Melanie Martinez

Melanie is definitely one of the best alternative artists ever! Why isn't this song higher on the list?

Why isn't this higher? Vote for Melanie!

! This song should be on number one! Or any other of her songs!

Melanie should beat out all these other terrible songs on this list
