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 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

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.

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

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

What the heck!
What is creed doing here?
It should only be in the list of worst bands ever.
Breaking Benjamin rocks...
Diary of Jane...deserves to be on top

3 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

4 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.

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

Great song

7 My Own Prison - Creed

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

This should be number one

Just so rustic but still has aglitter of it own
Creed is the best band.

How are Nu rock bands like breaking Benjamin and three days grace on here, Creed is pure nostalgia.

9 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...

10 Higher - Creed

The Contenders

11 Shine - Collective Soul
12 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!

13 Metalingus - Alter Bridge
14 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

15 Lightning Crashes - Live
16 Greed - Godsmack
17 With Arms Wide Open - Creed

Why wasn't this on the list? - christangrant

18 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

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

19 Wasting My Time - Default
20 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

21 Be Yourself - Audioslave
22 Leader of Men - Nickelback
23 It's Been Awhile - Staind
24 Tomorrow - Silverchair


25 Glycerine - Bush

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

26 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.

27 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

28 Fake It - Seether
29 Far Behind - Candlebox
30 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

31 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

32 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

33 Blow Me Away - Breaking Benjamin
34 Rockstar - Nickelback

They have better songs then this

35 Anything, Anything - Grey Daze

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

36 Firefly - Breaking Benjamin

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

37 Open Your Eyes - Alter Bridge
38 My Hero - Foo Fighters
39 Broken - Seether

The most touching song I have ever heard

This song got me into rock

40 Lips of an Angel - Hinder
41 Inhale - Stone Sour

The best to me

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

Masterpiece off a song!

44 Machinehead - Bush
45 My Sacrifice - Creed
46 Photograph - Nickelback
