Lose Yourself in the music... Eminem was already famous, but this put him as legendary.

2 Complicated - Avril Lavigne

This is one of the best songs ever... Avril Lavigne is the queen of pop punk. Legendary song... Better than lose yourself and definitely number 1.

Avril broke the hold of the cutesy teen pop scene in 2002 with this song, it was the something different that pop for so long had craved. Thanks Avril. - crowdiegal

This represents how I feel bout my friend

I love this song. I was only 3 years old when it came out. Avril Lavigne is one of my favorite singers. This is one of my childhood songs.

3 Headstrong - Trapt
4 All the Things She Said - t.A.T.u.

It is not just a song, it is a real deep emotion and art in the same time

Anthem for lesbians! Haha! Or maybe that's just me. It hooks you and keeps you in a lovely dreamy state through the entire song. It's a concept song, and I love it. It's so great!

'All the Things She Said' was their first, and 'Don't Regret' was their last. The music these two special women made will endure.

I lick the Russian version the best.

5 The Scientist - Coldplay

Why is this at 8? This song is way better than all of the songs above it. - ThePwoperMuser101

6 Downfall - Trust Company
7 Cry Me a River - Justin Timberlake

It's THE song! Love the lyrics, love the video, the music... it has been dedicated to Britney! IT'S ONE OF THE COOLEST SONGS OF ALL TIMES!

8 Hero - Chad Kroeger
9 I'm with You - Avril Lavigne

My favorite single from her debut album "Let Go" ,I'm With You is a song about imagining of being with the person you value the most - MatrixGuy

10 Hurt - Johnny Cash

This song is filled with so much emotion and it was an amazing way to top off not only an amazing career but an amazing life, too.

The Newcomers

? Work It - Missy Elliott

The Contenders

11 Feel - Robbie Williams

Just one of many but this was pretty good

12 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
13 Immortal - Adema
14 A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton

Best song of 2002

Beautiful piano ballad about missing someone. I love the lyrics and feel in love with it the first time I heard the piano intro. I also love T.A.T.U. 's "All the Things She Said", but I love Vanessa Carlton as well.

Excellent song and the best song of 2002

15 Clocks - Coldplay

One of the most famous songs of Coldplay - MatrixGuy

One of the best songs ever. I miss music in the early 2000s

That's a great song. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

17 Still Waiting - Sum 41
18 Crawling in the Dark - Hoobastank
19 Dirrty - Christina Aguilera

Don't get me wrong, I love "Beautiful" but I have my one song per artist rule and of the two singles released by Xtina in 2002, this one will always win for me. It's catchy, it gets you dancing and makes you feel sexy. If I get married, this will be playing at the reception. - theOpinionatedOne

32 Sing for the Moment - Eminem
