Best Hard Rock Songs of the 21st Century

No Heavy Metal, No Soft Rock, only pure Rock Music that gets you pumped up, and never leaves your memory.

The Top Ten

1 Crawling - Linkin Park Crawling - Linkin Park

One of the best songs of LP and truly one of the greatest songs of all time. It's been years since I listened to it and still I listen to it. It's so Roocking

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface - parth.jeet

Crawling is one of the best songs of LP

It won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance, and Linkin Park is one of the greatest rock bands of the 2000s, so Crawling should at least be a bit teensy-weensy higher, like at #2.

2 It's My Life - Bon Jovi It's My Life - Bon Jovi

I defy anyone not to use their hairbrush as a microphone and belt this one out in your bedroom

This is nowhere near rock. It is BON JOVI and it simply isn't rock. Nobody is going to get pumped up from THIS.

Nothing to say. This song helps you when you are broken.

This is a contender for greatest song of all time, let alone the 21st Century! What's it doing in No. 2?!

Finally it has the number 1 spot it deserves. This is amazing.

This band is awesome, also the songs of this band. Time of Dying is an exceptionally awesome song. It will always remind of when I am going to die, but this songs makes me to feel and live more than I could ever imagine.

9 Still Unbroken - Lynyrd Skynyrd Still Unbroken - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Really bad ass song. Makes me realizes that I am storng enough to conquer all the crap going on in my life right now.

10 The Pretender - Foo Fighters The Pretender - Foo Fighters

It's really a classic, if you love Hard Rock, you love this song. It's been recommending to me by many of my friends, and many Hard Rock lovers. People who play the guitar also say that it isn't a trashy song, but it is in fact quite unique and challenging to play.
