Top 10 Best Songs of the 2000s

The Top Ten
1 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

Yeah! This song in the top 3! Eminem is my favourite musical artist. A fact about this song: This song has created the most car accidents as people get too excited after listening to this song and then their car...

Best song of 2000s no matter what anyone says. One if the best songs of all time! Eminem gives meaning to his songs and inspiration. If you don't like Eminem and this song then there is something wrong with you.

This song deserves to be number one. It is one of the best pump up songs ever (Alongside songs like Encore/Numb, and Thunderstruck) and it tells you about Eminem's life story and how he powered through it.

Having a hard time deciding between "Lose yourself" and "Viva la vida".
But there is something about "Lose yourself" that makes it better than the rest.
The song is Iconic

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

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!

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.

3 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?!

Come on, who has dominated the music industry of 2000s if not LP? Coldplay are complete garbage, anyone in this world knows what music is. This song MUST be #1.

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

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

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

How did this barely make the top ten? American idiot was the best album of the millennium also, two Eminem songs are in the top 3 and viva la vida is #2? Come on! Yes, it's my favorite Coldplay song but it's not top ten material. And another thing, half of the songs on American idiot are just as good as BOBD but they didn't make the top ten even though Hey Ya! Did! If this were a list of 2000s artists I assisted you that Coldplay and especially OutKast would not make the top ten

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

21 guns is wayyy better... I love this song too, but I'm saying 21 guns is better.. Just that. I LOVE Green Day AND THE SONGS. no disrespect for any song. This song is awesome, too.. one of the BESTS.

5 Viva la Vida - Coldplay Viva la Vida - Coldplay Cover Art

I am screaming with happines right now. I love Viva la Vida so much. When I'm about to die of utter boredem I think about this song and suddenly Algebra is worth learning about. Thank you, Coldplay, for making my life more enjoyable. Thank you for Viva la Vida.

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.

6 Crazy - Gnarls Barkley Crazy - Gnarls Barkley Cover Art

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!

Such an amazing song, should be higher up.

Best hit song of all time.

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

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).

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)

8 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.

A great rap song. Eminem rights about real things. His life, his problems and his daughters. He kicks every rappers ass!

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...

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

9 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).

No this song Hey Ya is not on the Ella Enchanted soundtrack and by the way amazing song

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

This should be the top1.. This song never gets old

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

Needs to be number1

I love this song

? Getting Better - Smash Mouth Getting Better - Smash Mouth Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Mr. Brightside - The Killers Mr. Brightside - The Killers Cover Art

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

Everyone is born knowing every word to this song, it's a fact. Such a fantastic piece of music

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

12 American Idiot - Green Day American Idiot - Green Day Cover Art
13 Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) - Arcade Fire Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) - Arcade Fire Cover Art

Best song ever

14 Poker Face - Lady Gaga Poker Face - Lady Gaga Cover Art

Come on you fools stop the hate.

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

This song is just amazing!

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

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

The strokes are the best!

17 Clocks - Coldplay Clocks - Coldplay Cover Art

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

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

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

18 Just Dance - Lady Gaga Just Dance - Lady Gaga Cover Art
19 Knights of Cydonia - Muse Knights of Cydonia - Muse Cover Art

Truly a classic. I love muse, and this song, without a doubt, is the best song of the decade. Matt Bellamy's finest work.

20 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

21 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.

One Republic is famous now. Counting Stars has 1.5 billion views.

22 Beautiful Day - U2 Beautiful Day - U2 Cover Art

Heard in Nim's Island (2008) during the end of the film where Nim, Alex and her dad are happily on her island.

This should be way higher, in my opinion.

Why isn't this top 10
