Top 10 Best Songs of the 2000s

The Top Ten

1 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

very inspiring song, by a genius rapper, I like this song very much it deserves to be in the top 10

This song should be number One it is so inspiring when I feel like giving up I listen to it... I feel like I can do anything!


Eminem's best. arguably the best so far

2 In the End - Linkin Park In the End - Linkin Park Cover Art

Yes I am still listening to most of these songs in 2012 as well.. These songs are way better than the stuff they produce now-a-days.. In the end has got to be the one I have listened to the most.. But I wish I could vote for multiple songs! And what the hell is ke$ha doing on this list?!

Now I know that this list is crap cause this song is better than most of the songs on here. And why isn't lose yourself number 1

Should be above boulevard of broken dreams

The song should be re-phrased, Within the End.

3 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Cover Art

I can name SEVERAL songs Evanescence made in this decade that are far more deserving of this spot than this.

2000s: It's a great song!
2010s: It's a meme song!

Great song!

I love it very much so does. My brother Spencer holliman and my name is Sara Elizabeth holliman.I am Spencer holliman's sister my sister does too and her name is Hadley Grace holliman.

4 Viva la Vida - Coldplay Viva la Vida - Coldplay Cover Art

Ugh! Amazing! This is one of those songs that you could never get tired of listening too, and congrats on the Grammy awards for Best Song of 2008 and Best Rock Album! Viva la Vida definitely deserves it, no doubt!

This song deserves the top place. Coldplay really knew what they were doing when they wrote this.

I like this song, but The Scientist will always be my favorite. Great lyrics.

Coldplay puts electronic music to shame with their use of an orchestra in "Viva la Vida."

5 Stan - Eminem Stan - Eminem Cover Art

This song proves anyone who thinks the only people who listen to Eminem are drugged-up whiteys don't understand rap. Rap is an art. Art is constantly developing. YES, Nas, Pac, Big, Rakim, NWA, and Public Enemy came before him. But he took rap to a level past anyone else. One of the greatest songs off of one of the greatest albums. Argument over.

The Dido sample and the lyrics are some of the greatest of all time.

I like Eminem and I'm not a fan of Lose Yourself. This is good. I make anti-Eminem comments because of his fanbase. In reality, I like him

This superb song is about the conversation of Eminem's fan (Stan) and Eminem! The lyrics are awesome!

6 Hey Ya! - Outkast Hey Ya! - Outkast Cover Art

"My baby don't mess around because she loves me so and this I know fo'sho" - Serious song to an uplifting beat with some killer dance moves. You have to love this song!

Heard in Soundtrack to Ella Enchanted (2004).

7 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes Cover Art

This is one of the best bands of the 2000s and this is there break through single. They basically brought back garage rock into the rock mainstream

I used to hate rock. But after I listened to this, my whole perspective was changed.

The riff that everyone knows, it is just that good. Everyone knows about it.
(from the queen of England to the hounds of hell)

Simple but amazing. Seriously I can play this song behind my back while sitting down but I get more feel from it that songs like "Smooth", "Everlong" and "Californication(which is also very simple).

8 Crazy - Gnarls Barkley Crazy - Gnarls Barkley Cover Art

Such an amazing song, should be higher up.

Best hit song of all time.

Best hit song of all time,why isn't this #1?

When I first heard this song, I thought it was in old song. It sounded like an old R&B song. The music video's awesome too!

9 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Cover Art

This is my favorite song of Green Day and one of my favorites in general. I feel like this sometimes and it's nice to know I'm not alone. The lyrics and the music are amazing and just the way he sings it is just perfect. This should be in at the very least, top five

If there's a better song that's been made in the history of music I'm yet to here it. It has everything you could want emotive lyrics awesome guitar solos and a killer video. The fact that beyonce and Eminem are above this is an outrage!

Best song EVER in my opinion.

Should be top 3 with lose yourself and the underrated "numb" by linkin park

10 Crazy In Love - Beyonce Crazy In Love - Beyonce Cover Art

I scroll down this list and this is the first song I actually recognize, still happy it's on the list though

beyonce is definitely the hottest and most talked about singer in the decade, I chose this song cause I simply fell crazy in love with her because of it, she is a queen in her category

You are joking, right? Why is this in the top 10? This the worst song to hit #1 on Billboard Hot 100 that decade!

Also this is coming from the guy who added all of the Adele songs to the top ten worst songs of 2015

I love this song and I love beyonce that's just how it gotta be

The Contenders

11 Mr. Brightside - The Killers Mr. Brightside - The Killers Cover Art

A pop-rock song - now, I have every Killers album, and they write really catchy songs, but this one stands above the rest

Such an inspirational song

Best song ever written, catchy beats, great lyrics. Mix them together, best song ever.
It really stands out from any other song.


12 Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) - Arcade Fire Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) - Arcade Fire Cover Art
13 Poker Face - Lady Gaga Poker Face - Lady Gaga Cover Art

Come on you fools stop the hate.

14 A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys Cover Art

An unbelievably crafted song of social commentary written when he was only 16, it is godlike

This song is just amazing!

More like greatest song of all time

15 American Idiot - Green Day American Idiot - Green Day Cover Art

How did no one really vote for this? IT'S AMAZING


16 Last Nite - The Strokes Last Nite - The Strokes Cover Art

The strokes are the best!

Coldplay is so overrated. The Strokes DEFINE music. There's absolutely no competition. period.

17 It's My Life - Bon Jovi It's My Life - Bon Jovi Cover Art

Not only is this the best song of the 2000s, It's the best track since Bon Jovi released These Days.

Best song of the 2000s! Not like other crap music that we have now. What a coincidence! It's the 33rd on this list and peaked at 33 on the billboard! What are the odds!

18 99 Problems - Jay Z 99 Problems - Jay Z Cover Art

"Although Jay z is a disgrace to hip hop" person, yeah you, go get some rap education

Although Jay z is a disgrace To Hip Hop This Song Is Awesome

19 Apologize - Onerepublic Apologize - Onerepublic Cover Art

OneRepublic is that band that doesn't get enough credit, the band that sings all the best songs that you never bothered to look up the artist of. Recognize any? Apologize, Secrets, Stop and Stare, All the Right Moves, Feel Again. Those are just a few! OneRepublic is the best band that nobody's heard of, yet everone knows at least one song by.

One of the rare '00s songs that can compete with old classics when it comes to sincerely "beautiful" songs.

I rarely do listen to OR, but it's a memorable song. Still remember the lyrics after 8 years or so.

great 'mix. OneRepublic and Timbaland

20 Paper Planes - M.I.A. Paper Planes - M.I.A. Cover Art
21 Strobe - Deadmau5 Strobe - Deadmau5 Cover Art

Considered the best electronic song of all time. Year I don't see it on this list

22 Clocks - Coldplay Clocks - Coldplay Cover Art

This just slightly beats Viva La Vida as the BEST SONG OF ALL TIME!

It's really frustrating for me to see this above "The Scientist".but it's still a good song though

The piano riff in the beginning is iconic, the lyrics are deep; the song couldn't get any better.

To me this coldplay song has a lot more passion than the others

23 Bad Romance - Lady Gaga Bad Romance - Lady Gaga Cover Art

Where the votes? The is THE BEST SONG OF THE 2000s...PERIOD!.

24 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence Cover Art
25 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

Lol, Lady Gaga is above this song
I feel bad for the mental problems of people who have it bad enough to vote for Poker Face
My Chem's most listened to song is a must try and if you don't like it keep your bad opinions out of Gerard Way's cornflakes because I can guarantee you he is not interested

One of the best songs of all time. The music is awesome and the band gives it all in this song. Also has pretty deep meaning.

Should be so much higher, given how it's like 30 on top 10 songs of all time

Come on guys. This is literally one of the best songs I've ever heard. At least top 10.
