Best Post-Grunge Songs

This list shows the best post grunge songs from various artists of 90's and 00's.

The Top Ten

1 Everlong - Foo Fighters

When I first heard this song, I was obsessed with the chorus where Dave Grohl's lyrics speed up. Great song, and it definitely deserves to be on here.

If its David Letterman's favorite song then why not #1 - Mutant_God

Best foo fighters song ever!

This is the ONLY option. towering HIGH above the rest of this (altough admittedly underrated genre)

2 Hemorrhage (In My Hands) - Fuel

Altogether first off Brett Scallions in his prime had one of the best live voices ever. Put that together with Carl Bells writing and you have this song which I fell in love with the first time I heard it. My band is playing this song now. Just wow. Every time I hear this song it blows me away even more.

Great, great song... Supreme vocals by Brett Scallions. You can really FEEL the emotion when he sings "Don't fal away, and leave me to myself." God I almost forgot how much I love this tune!

Most emotional song of all time.

3 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

All 10 should just be this band. You stupid rednecks, learn what music IS!

Diary of Jane brings out the anger, frustration in you It's the best post grunge song ever. I see others have rated other songs more than this but believe me this song exemplifies the grunge in post grunge.

One of most well written songs in the genre. Absolute perfection in all aspects

Make it first or else...

4 How You Remind Me - Nickelback

The best Mainstream rock song hit of the 2000's

The most popular rock song of the decade 2000's

My favourite song ever! Nickelhaters can back off this is the best postgrunge song. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

5 Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace

Adam is a legend and has probably one of the most unique voices and sounds in rock as a whole, but he dominated post grunge with an iron grip.

Adam's voice is the most unique voice among all vocalists of post-grunge bands!

Best post grunge song ever with a singer with the best voice!

The maker of this list is a madman!
This song deserves at least 2nd place... Musicality to its highest... TDG for win!

6 Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down

This is a cool song. - Userguy44

Great song

Such a nostalgic sounding song, try and tell me you automatically don’t teleport to an early 2000’s arcade when this song comes on

7 Far Behind - Candlebox
8 Shine - Collective Soul

This song is so damn good top 5 at least

Deserved to be in top10. - zetturno

9 My Own Prison - Creed

This song is a MASTERPIECE regardless of what you think of Creed, this is top 3 material listen for yourself and see

Three days grace and breaking benjamin are god awful. Creed and foo fighters are the only bands in the top ten that deserve to be on the list, let alone in the top ten

Absolutely should be in top 3

Can’t get over great this song is

10 Hero - Chad Kroeger

What a great grungy rock anthem

Shows that Chad Kroeger can make a decent song. - Userguy44

I agree. Great song.

The Contenders

11 One Last Breath - Creed

You can hate creed, but you have to accept that this song is a masterpiece

Just love this one so much...

12 Higher - Creed
13 Santa Monica - Everclear
14 Bound for the Floor - Local H

This band is great! They sound like Nirvana mixed with the offspring. They are really underrated and have so many good albums that every grunge and rock fan should hear. - dragon13304

15 Break - Three Days Grace

Best band of all time deserves to be #1

Awesome, goes lil bit into the emo genre but as a post Grunge fan I still got break on my playlist!
Catchy rhythms!

16 Glycerine - Bush

Personally the best Post-Grunge, and even 90's alternative song.

17 Metalingus - Alter Bridge
18 Learn to Fly - Foo Fighters

The Pretender is better than this although this is no.7 on my Foo Fighters list

Make my way back home when I learn to fly - Gorsed

This song is awesome! It is very catchy! You can't help but sing along to it the riff and voclas are amazing! Dave is a legend - dragon13304

19 Lightning Crashes - Live
20 Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
21 I Alone - Live
22 Greed - Godsmack
23 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Better than many of the songs on this list, powerful and Alter Bridge at their best, although not technically post-grunge.

This song makes my panties drenched

Best. Song. Ever.

24 With Arms Wide Open - Creed

Why wasn't this on the list? - christangrant

25 Sex and Candy - Marcy Playground
26 Wasting My Time - Default
27 Be Yourself - Audioslave
28 Here Without You - 3 Doors Down

You know the list sucks when it's a top 10 and it involves Creed. The only top 10 they should be on is "Top 10 Worst Bands. " Anyway, this is a great song. - DasCanuck116

That's nonsense, this song is great from ever aspects that post grunge should be, this song must be number 3

This song is phenomenal. It's better then the Foo Fighters song that's number one

Is this post grunge? - Userguy44

29 Leader of Men - Nickelback
30 It's Been Awhile - Staind
31 3 Am - Matchbox Twenty
32 Tomorrow - Silverchair


33 Blurry - Puddle of Mudd

Top 5 should be: Blurry, hemorrhage (in my hands), shimmer, iris, and name' blurry is so beautiful.. Three days grace isn't even post grunge. Nor seether and breaking benjamin and that crap. Grunge is not dead so don't make it seem that way. :c R.I. P Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley

Should be in the top 3 at lest what a beautiful song really underrated

Great song great music puddle of mudd at their best

34 Control - Puddle of Mudd

Nickelback are not supposed to be higher in the list. Puddle of Mudd's song Control is way better than Mickelback's songs like Rockstar and Photograph. The should be higher in the list.

35 Breakdown - Tantric
36 The Background - Third Eye Blind
37 Isolation - Alter Bridge

Best song by alter bridge till now

Love this band! You have one of the greatest guitarist and singers of this generation together in a band. Incredible!

It s not a grunge song and AB is not o grunge band but who cares, this song is awesome

Grunge taken to a whole new level

38 Fake It - Seether
39 Blow Me Away - Breaking Benjamin
40 Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

Iris is an awesome song, its just one of those songs that you can really appreciate the first time you listen to it. Everything is so well put together, its hard not to respect the genius of the song

41 Rockstar - Nickelback

They have better songs then this

42 Broken - Seether

The most touching song I have ever heard

This song got me into rock

43 Anything, Anything - Grey Daze

Great cover. Not my favorite Chester song. But it's as good if not better than the original song.

44 Firefly - Breaking Benjamin

One of the best choruses I have ever heard in my entire life.

45 Open Your Eyes - Alter Bridge
46 My Hero - Foo Fighters
47 Lips of an Angel - Hinder
48 Inhale - Stone Sour

The best to me

49 Nothing Could Come Between Us - Theory of a Deadman

Theory of a Deadman is just my favorite band so of course I'm gonna vote for them

50 Savin' Me - Nickelback

Masterpiece off a song!
