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

Yes, the best

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.

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

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

3 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.

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!

26 Here Without You - 3 Doors Down

Is this post grunge? - Userguy44

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

30 Blurry - Puddle of Mudd

Looked up this list specifically to make sure this song was on it.

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.
