Best Modern Rock Love Songs

21 Never Be the Same - Red Never Be the Same - Red
22 Everlong - Foo Fighters Everlong - Foo Fighters

"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.

23 Lips of an Angel - Hinder Lips of an Angel - Hinder

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!

Come on this one has to be in the top 15 at least. This was the song my ex used for me.

I don't know about other songs but this definitely deserves to up there at the top. Pure amazingness!

24 In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge

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

This song is simply very touching. One of the greatest songs ever written?

Wonderwall is one of my favorites...

One of the best love songs around.

Probably one of the best love songs ever written

26 The Reason - Hoobastank The Reason - Hoobastank

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.

1%.. Have you guys gone nuts
This song must be way higher in the list.. Well I agree I doesn't have much of that high instrumentation...but still the words completely compensate it..

27 This I Love - Guns N' Roses This I Love - Guns N' Roses
28 So Far Away - Staind So Far Away - Staind
29 (You Want To) Make a Memory - Bon Jovi (You Want To) Make a Memory - Bon Jovi

One of the most underestimated love songs ever.
One if the most underestimated Bon Jovi songs ever.
Just listen.

30 Blood to Bleed - Rise Against Blood to Bleed - Rise Against

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

31 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

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.

Would love to have this as my wedding song

32 Lost in You - Three Days Grace Lost in You - Three Days Grace

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.kyule

This song helped me get over an obsession. This song is the best. Thank you three days Grace, I'll always love you guys! THANK YOU!

33 Bitch Came Back - Theory of a Deadman Bitch Came Back - Theory of a Deadman

Uh.T.O.A. D has much better love songs than this. Such as "Wait For Me" and "Easy To Love You"

34 You and Me - Lifehouse You and Me - Lifehouse

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!

35 Hearts Burst Into Fire - Bullet for My Valentine V 2 Comments
36 Drain You - Nirvana Drain You - Nirvana
37 Your Call - Secondhand Serenade Your Call - Secondhand Serenade

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

Very nice and best song by secondhand serenade you must hear onecs this songs just touch the heart

38 Vermillion, Pt. 2 - Slipknot Vermillion, Pt. 2 - Slipknot

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..

This song is amazing. It definitely should be higher on the list. Also, whoever voted for Nickelback can suck not one but two dudes dicks.

39 Not Like the Others - Robbie Williams Not Like the Others - Robbie Williams

Very powerful and emotional

40 The Only Exception - Paramore The Only Exception - Paramore

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.
