The Top Ten

1 Lose Yourself - Eminem

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 - batman360

Not just the greatest song of the 2000s. This is the greatest song EVER MADE!

2 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

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.

It's so good

3 Stan - Eminem

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.

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

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

I can't remember how many times I listened to this song, so I'm glad is in the third spot. Just a smooth smooth track...

4 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

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

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.

Personally, I voted for Viva La Vida, but this song is just as amazing (well, it's tough to say). Amy Lee is one of the best voices out there, and this song really demonstrates her vocal talents (though not quite as much as My Immortal, that's arguably her best song). Even so, this song is beautiful and it's a shame that nobody bothered to comment on it. Oh, and it's really bloody epic, too!

5 Hey Ya! - Outkast

Heard in Soundtrack to Ella Enchanted (2004). - playstationfan66

1 2 3 uh!

6 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes

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.

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).

7 In the End - Linkin Park

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

This should be one this is a masterpiece from linkin Park

8 Crazy In Love - Beyonce

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! - SelfDestruct

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

9 Crazy - Gnarls Barkley

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!

10 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

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!

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

Best song EVER in my opinion.

WHERE IS DESPACITO?!

The Newcomers

? Precious Jerusalem - Blind Guardian
? Blackest Eyes - Porcupine Tree

The Contenders

11 Apologize - Onerepublic

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. - ArAn

OR are overshadowed by Coldplay (who I also like).

12 American Idiot - Green Day
13 Clocks - Coldplay

THis song has the piano playing to start the song. This song is the highlight of their career. This is the greatest song by them. This is better than Viva La Vida.

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.

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