21 Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand

The best thing about this track is that it ain't depressing whatsoever. Once you hear this song you'll have a smile on your face.

22 Numb - Linkin Park

No words for this song. JUST. THE. BEST. only Linkin Park could make such an incredibly awesome song... JUST LOVE IT.

What NUMB at 23? How could it not be at number 1? NUMB at 23 in best song of 2000s is the worst thing about any list in the site

Come on! Why is Numb so down it's the best metal song of 21st century.And like many other songs it never gets old.It is even better than Bring me to life.If you haven't heard it yet please listen you are missing a really great masterpiece.

23 Chop Suey - System of a Down
24 How You Remind Me - Nickelback
25 A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys

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 - PeterG28

26 Complicated - Avril Lavigne

Sorry, this song defines 2000's music. There was no bigger pop superstars at the decade other than Britney Spears and the Anti-Britney movement princess, Avril Lavigne. This song deserves a spot in the Top Ten. And Avril Lavigne is the best Pop Punk singer/songwriter ever! - Anggun

The landmark of the new decade of pop music. She's the icon. - Anggun

27 Use Somebody - Kings of Leon
28 Beautiful Day - U2

Heard in Nim's Island (2008) during the end of the film where Nim, Alex and her dad are happily on her island. - playstationfan66

Why isn't this top 10 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

29 The Scientist - Coldplay

This by far my favorite song of the 2000's. It's so beautifully written and the music video is my favorite of all time. I just love Coldplay.

It's Coldplay's best song, the best piano ballad of the decade. So, it's better than Viva la Vida.

Come on who doesn't love this song? Perfect transition between piano and guitar, and a beautiful song for sure.

30 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish
31 Hey, Soul Sister - Train

Catchy song

32 You Found Me - The Fray
33 The Seven Deadly Sins - Flogging Molly

34 It's My Life - Bon Jovi
35 Fighter - Christina Aguilera V 1 Comment
36 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

Or ya know someone speaking the truth about crooked rich people and politicians send poor people to fight the wars they made

This song sounds like some insane person screaming into a microphone about random crap.

37 In da Club - 50 Cent

50 cent is one of the best rappers of all time, and with this song, he earned his place in the rap kingdom

Please tell me this is a joke. 50CENT is the blandest, least interesting rapper of what may well be all time. - WonkeyDude98

38 Poker Face - Lady Gaga
39 Independent Women Part I - Destiny's Child
40 Chelsea Dagger - The Fratellis

Sort of song you would hear in British pubs all the time. And for good reason too. This was why they won a Brit Award in 2007.
