2 Snuff - Slipknot Snuff - Slipknot

the greatest love song... its about broken heart feelings...! awsomw band awesome vocals totaly superb song.. everybody should listned to this...

Bury all your secrets in my skin.
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins.
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.

Deliver me into my Fate -
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago,
If I can change I hope I never know. - skt

The greatest love song! And one of the best songs ever! Beautiful lyrics, awesome great music and it is probably the best song by slipknot. Best song ever

Absolutely fantastic song and bittersweet voice. When you are down, just listen to this. It can't really heal your broken heart but it sure helps a lot. Thank you Corey for this.

Best Corey's clean voice demonstration

3 Warmness on the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold Warmness on the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold

The previous two A7X songs on here are amazing songs but they are more about heart break than about love. This one hits it right on the head. Every verse had me thinking of the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Avenged Sevenfold is my favorite band. I absolutely love them and every single song they have. This song is truely great and I plan on playing it at my wedding

Love this song. I will be walking down the aisle at my wedding to this song

4 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

Lead guirtarist Syn Gates wrote this song, trebute to his bandmate, friend Jimmy... The 'Rev'... this is from there new (2010) album Nightmare..
makes me cry... - skt

The Best Love Song I've Heard Ever. Meaningful Lyrics, Fine Guitar Solo, Melody & Vocal. Absolutely Brilliant. I Have To Try Very Hard To Stop Crying When I Listening To This Song. Syn Gates Written It For Me I Think. What An Amazing Lyrics.

Contrary to popular belief Syn actually wrote this for his grandma who passed away but when the Rev died the fans took this song to heart because the lyrics fit so well, and now it's seen as being for him, hence the video

Best band ever no one can ever top them no matter how hard they try, and this is their best album. - AvengedSevenfoldfoREVer

And if we make it out alive, I promise you these love will never die... I love you for now and then

Its just amazing, I have been looking for a GOOD love song for days now and finally I found this one and its just like what I wanted... The lyrics explain just what I feel for my loved one and that's just what I wanted all along...

This is an amazing love song, it captures the essences of love. 'i need you right here by my side. Your everything I'm not in my life'

This is one of the only TRUE love songs on this list! I love this song! Perfect for couples!

8 Without You - Hinder Without You - Hinder

Personally lips of an angel, but this is great as well!

This song is not exactly a love song. Don't get me wrong it's a great song but it is not about loving someone. It's about how you break up them and you realize that you're better off without them. "It's safe to say that I'm ready to let you leave" don't think a girl would take kindly to that.

This deserves to be at least in the top five wonderful song... Amazing lyrics... Awesome guitar... Full of emotion and feeling.. This song makes me fell strong against my love

Awesome song I love it. its awesome! Always makes me wonder

9 Your Guardian Angel - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Your Guardian Angel - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Beautiful and cool... Deserve this position... - skt

This is one of the most heartfelt modern songs I've heard. Any girl to have this song dedicated to them is lucky

There really are no words you describe the feelings this song reminds me. There ain't no better love song than this one. - LoveMeSomePie

Absolutely beautiful...favorite song

Somewhat "in your face" love song but still awesome - should have been in the top 10

The Contenders

11 Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold

Best ever... Makes me cry...! Love Avenged sevenfold forever...! - skt

You'd have to be insane not to try this song out. Very different from a lot of songs, but the message is great and warns the heart.

Another great song from you guys for such a beautiful song

12 Thinking About You - Puddle of Mudd Thinking About You - Puddle of Mudd

It's mine and my boyfriend's song, the amount of emotional that goes into the song is just immense, always manages to bring a tear to my eye

I honestly LOVE this song! Best from Puddle Of Mudd! I recommend it to anyone, even if you don't normally listen to rock!

One of the best love songs I've ever heard. Just AWESOME!

LOVE THIS SONG. It's so sweet and makes me think of my boyfriend every time. <3 And Puddle of Mudd is one of my favorite bands ever, they're so good and I love all their songs!

13 Broken - Seether Broken - Seether

Shaun had Kurt's exciting voice. With this song, you can't find better.

To me.. one of the best rock love songs.. Amy's and Shaun's voice are so suitable together! And the lyrics are so awesome!

Just an all around great son. The contrast of Amy Lee and Shaun Morgan bring out so much meaning and what the song is about.

This is the song that introduced me to seethed and I think it is the best love song ever

14 Here Without You - Three Doors Down Here Without You - Three Doors Down

The benchmark song for 3 Doors Down...

It is as good as it gets... I don't know anything about any song on this list but believe me on this one... THIS SONG IS GREAT...

The best English love song I've ever heard in my whole life...
Every time evokes a feeling in my heart of deep and burried love

I like this song very much... Here without you... Lonely.. Great song ever

I prefer Your Arms Feel Like Home but this is without a doubt the best modern rock love song ever released.

15 Through Glass - Stone Sour Through Glass - Stone Sour

I loved this song from the moment I first heard it and it's still on my play list. My son used to go to sleep if you sang it to him, not the normal lullabies!

I was surprised to see it as a #15, but now that I see the competition, it should definitely be in the top 10. Unfortunately it seems that rock is taking a bad turn in these '10s...

This song is so sad but very true on occasion for some people...

His voice is beautiful and the words are so well written.

18 Forever - Papa Roach Forever - Papa Roach

Such an amazing song with so much meaning and so much depth!

19 Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cancer - My Chemical Romance

I love My Chemical Romance. Never expected it here.

I just really like My Chemical Romance and the way they sound...

Just heartbreaking. Pure melancholy and sadness.

This song hits really close to home. My uncle and grandfather have died of cancer and this song has such touching lyrics. "my sister and my brothers still, I will not kiss you. Cause the hardest part of this.. is leaving you."
