Best Modern Rock Love Songsskt
The Top Ten
"Dear god the only thing I ask of you
Is to hold her when I'm not around, when I'm much too far away... "
Listen to this... It's beautiful... A7x a7x...! - skt
One of my personal favorites, anyone thats ever had to be away from the one they love can relate to this song
I love all of you.I like your songs so much.I always listen your songs.Dear God is the best.
This song is actually me and my boyfriend's "song" that reminds us of each other the most. It was probably the first song he had me listen to when we got together...36 Comments
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
Dear God or this should be number 1. So Far Away isn't really a love song but it is a wonderful slow song.7 Comments
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.
Most people associate love songs to stories about how beautiful love is, and how amazing it is to be in love. This shows the other side of love. The side that lays at the bottom, and comes out when things go wrong.
As Corey sings, "You didn't hate enough to love". And it is true; at the heart of love, there is part hate.
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
If you know the story behind Avenged Sevenfold and Jimmy Sullivan this song will be more profound, but really applies to anybody who's lost someone close to them. Accurate with the emotion and beautifully presented.
Good job syn,,
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.13 Comments
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...
An absolutly gorgeous love song. There isn't many good love songs now anymore, but this one is just pure perfect. - Nevey

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.8 Comments
The song is well done.. Instrumentally it is lovely and very correct with words. It is a beautiful song done in a very profession and beautifully done in every way..It really shows the talent of the band and its members.they have great musicians they showcase. The vocalist are heard at their best..
One the best songs from nickelback. This deserves to be at the top of the list. Listen to this guys!
One of the BEST Rock Love Songs EVER!
I think this song is one of the best that comes in modern day rock and a love song too, well done Nickelback11 Comments
Such an amazing song with so much meaning and so much depth!
Absoulty beautiful love song. definitely made my 20 love songs play list. - Nevey
The first song that was "Our song" with the love of my life. The lyrics, "I will never let you fall. I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all. Even if saving you sends me to heaven. Because you're my true love my whole heart please don't throw that away... " is everything I feel about him. <3
Because you're my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
Because I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and
Please tell me you'll stay, stay
Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be okay
Though my skies are turning gray
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. - LoveMeSomePie16 Comments
Wasn't expecting this here but I LOVE My Chemical Romance. This song is one of my favorites and deserves so much love.
I just really like My Chemical Romance and the way they sound...
I love My Chemical Romance. Never expected it here.
Just heartbreaking. Pure melancholy and sadness.5 Comments
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!
Good song, deep meaning2 Comments
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.
Yes, this is where it's at! Ultimate rock love song! It's too bad this list turned into an Avenged Sevenfold fan page.4 Comments
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 wonder1 Comment
One of the best love songs made. In my interpritation of this song, its him with a new girl after they two broke up, but they still love each other. Despite what you other people think, this is a love song about two people who went their seprerate ways, thinking they were doing the right thing, but are now having second thoughts. Its not about cheating. Wherever you got that idea, only God knows. They are both now involved in a new relationship, and she calls him late at night because she regrets ever letting him go, but they don't want to end the relationship they are currently in. They both miss each others voices and being together. He never wants to completely let her leave his life, but she makes it so hard to stay faithful to the girl he is with now. This is a love song about regret and longing. Not cheating. Beautiful song about love. - Nevey
I have this song on my phone all the time, I'm not one for love or believe in true love so I don't search for it but this song shows heartache and longing but honestly, if you want something in your reach leave for it, the song shows cheating too so that's probably why I like it.
I need all metal fans here to take a step back and let there be a quality list that does not have a song like lips of an angel underrated like this.
Its a cheating love song but an awesome one at that. After all what should we expect form rock stars!5 Comments
Lovely voice.. She is the greatest female vocalist ever...
"You cried I wipe away all your tears" - skt
Great song will stand the test of time.
Beautiful song, needs to be higher up this list
Really peaceful and heart touching song.this song deserve number 1.
This song is beautiful and describes everything that you would want to hear from your boyfriend, this song reminds me of something you would listen to and would convince you to fall in love with someone
Beautiful, Beautiful! I felt in love with this song, the music, the lyrics, It's a very good love song, I heard it a long time ago, and I still listen to it
Every time I hear this song, I think of my best friend and I being together. He knows me so well and hasn't judged me yet.
One of the best love songs of all time in my opinion. It describes what I feel when I'm in love exactly.4 Comments
This is a song that may not generally be classed as a love song. However, it kind of is. As it's about Mark Tremonti's mother's passing. And the lyrics tell of how he loves her and hopes she is in a happy place. It should be much higher on the list.
Not exactly what I think of when I think about love songs, since it's a song written to a late mother. But it gets my vote anyway, simply because in my mind, this is the most amazing newer rock song. Everyone can relate to these lyrics, I'm sure.
One of the greatest love songs I've ever heard.. It's beautiful... Alter bridge roxx... listen to Myles kennedy's voice.. It makes the song lovely... - skt
Emotional and touching lyrics sung by one of the most underrated rock singers of our time in Myles Kennedy. Listen to the song and you will no doubt be moved! Top 5 at minimum.9 Comments
One of the best romantic song of this genre!
Lovely song, lovely voice. I suggest you guys should listen and definitely it should be ranked better.
This song is so cool
Everyone should hear the song it is great and deserves a higher spot
Blood to Bleed is amazing, just like all Rise Against songs are.
This is the best punk song about love
One of the most underestimated love songs ever.
One if the most underestimated Bon Jovi songs ever.
Pff easily, this list is retarded. Who votes here? Kids?
This song is literally a part of me, it's so so beautiful. The day a guy dedicates this song to me, I'll be the happiest girl in the world :) this song just gives me the feels man
There's no reason why this song doesn't deserve to be in the top 10
One of my favorite songs. It has the best lyrics we could ask from a rock love song. And its modern. It was released in 2003. Sweet Child O Mine is a great song but not for this list. Its underrated because of the band. Just listen to it and you will know and love it for sure.6 Comments
Uh.T.O.A. D has much better love songs than this. Such as "Wait For Me" and "Easy To Love You"
Its proabably so low because its not a very well known song. Its quite old. But this song deserves better then this. 81? I'm going to try and get this song much more well know. It deserves more then this. - Nevey
Can't believe this song is so far down.
This song is just perfect, great vocals, lyrics and music. It always brings a tear to my eyes
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 A7X...love you guys for such a beautiful song
One of my favorite love songs. I'm actually looking on here to find love songs for a playlist for my boyfriend. he's going through tough times right now, and I just wanna make sure he knows I love the crap out of him. - Nevey
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!
This is not only a love song, but a masterpiece of reflecting ones self. Just close your eyes and try to feel what he describes. Plain awesome.
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...3 Comments
I love this song
This song is ridiculously relatable in so many ways for so many people. It's deep, it's raw, it's passionate. There's nothing about this song that doesn't send shivers down my spine when I listen to if and when it comes on I just get flooded with nostalgia and emotion
70?! REALLY?! This is like the best love song ever! - damon.kyule6 Comments
One of the greatest songs ever.
"Hello, I've been waiting here for you. Everlong."
This song only makes real sense until you find that one person you love more than anyone else. That's why it's one of the ultimate love songs ever.
This song is absolutely perfect.
It should definitely be higher on the list.
This song takes you to both the good and the bad, memories fill your head, it's daunting, it's unreal. The Acoustic version makes the meaning go through in a better way, but it doesn't matter the version or the style, the chorus always strikes a chord within you.
"And I wonder
When I sing Along with You
If everything could ever be this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
the only thing I'll ever ask of you
you gotta promise not to stop when I say 'when'
I'm thoroughly disappointed that this didn't make the top ten. This is my fiancee's and my song and will be our first dance at our wedding. Listen to the lyrics - it is the definition of a rock love song.
Maybe not modern but still! It definitely deserves to be up in the top 10! One of the first metal bands to do a love ballad and wow what a song! Actually, a part of it was written during a phone call between James and his girlfriend so this describes love at it's best! - theswedishn00b
This should be in the top of this list. I love this song so much. It is so disappointing to see this song way down this list.
Absolutely amazing song, will be first dance at my wedding.12 Comments
What does this have to do with love? - christangrant
This isn't about love
Not above love.
I see that people are saying that this song isn't about love. Before you start saying what your uneducated self thinks, maybe try looking it up first. If you actually take your time and listen to it, he's talking about his bad relationship with his mother. But the song is about love. He's asking them (his mom) to come back to him because he doesn't want to lose those he loves. Here, go to this site, read it, and see for yourself. This song IS about love and lose.
Maybe now you will rethink your response. It really is a beautiful love song. You just need to learn how to listen. - Nevey
This song should be in the top ten.. Hands down best rock love song... Everyone would like it at their wedding
WHY IS THIS NOT HIGHER ON THE LIST?!?!?! My favourite love song of all time. Maybe not too "modern", but a lot more than some on here, and so beautiful.
Everything she does is beautiful...everything she does is RIGHT!
I like the song, but do you guys know what "modern" means? I think the 80's aren't. - tiagocowboy11
Definitely the best rock n' roll love song of all times.
Great song but not modern
This song is just great3 Comments
This my favorite song
Its rly good
Paramore is easily my favorite band, Hayley's voice is just so beautiful and if you've ever had many failed romances and heartbreak, this is somewhat of a motivation.
It's about when you finally find true love, after all this time searching for it. There's always someone that is "the exception" of the rest of the people.
O man this is amazing! ! How much more "love" does it get? Needs to be way higher
My dad and stepmother used this song for their wedding song
This is a very beautiful song.
Love, love, love this song! and is easy to dance to. Brings me to tears.3 Comments
This song should be hell forward than any other songs in the list.. Its way better than Snuff too.. And this song is the one that reminds me of my crush.. Given an ear to it.. The background music that flows in this song and its chilling lyrics are what makes it a masterpiece..
Oh, you up in position 31, it is very good boys, let's go grow up in position 2 or 1, because you must grow up in position 2 or 1, ok boys, you it's very excellent and group band is the very good in America in Menlo Park, California, let's go boys
Yah it's very amazing, you is 0,9 % it's very good, but you must in position 1 or in the top table ok, to night wioll be the night that I will fall for you, you call me stranger you say I'm danger
Very nice and best song by secondhand serenade you must hear onecs this songs just touch the heart

Very Emotional! This needs to climb the ranks...1 Comment
This is the most beautiful song about love. It truly expresses that raw need for the person who completes you.
Amazing! One of the best mellow songs of Linkin Park! I want listen again and again.
Beautiful song. Mom tells me to get off Youtube. Then this song comes on. I just say ok, and risk gettting in trouble to hear it again. - Nevey
