The Top Ten

3 21 Guns - Green Day

I love the song! It sounds so original in this song is a rock that I really liked it... Thank you Green Day! I hope you still surprise me with their songs! - teleroy

Helped me through so much... Metal and rock wannabes... Well I didn't talk smack about your favorite... Shows who's more mature... In my opinion Green Day and Linkin Park owned the 2000s best bands ever but 21 guns is my favorite

Finally a good song in the modern world - mmarce445

4 Fireflies - Owl City

Heard this in second grade and fell in love with it!

Just no comments... Just beautiful I love this song!

I have some great childhood memories from this song - Jon8201

Best song of all time

5 Automatic - Tokio Hotel

When I heard this song and watched the music video I instantly fell in love with this band! The lyrics are so meaningful and with the way Bill sings it you can really feel the message of the song! And you can't expect a one-hit-wonder kind of thing with this song 'because all of their songs are SO CATCHY and the lyrics always mean so much! With this song, Tokio Hotel continues to show to the music world their own unique, modern, and distinct and revolutionizing rock sound. Even non-TH fans admit to liking this song instantly! Tokio Hotel rocks!

OMG... this is my favorite band in the world... and this song... UAU... You're automatic, sistematic... so traumatic you're automatic... there's no real love in you... why do I keep loving you?... this is perfect Bill this song deserves it a gold medal... and the guittar... the bass and the drums OMG just love it...

They are the best! Automatic is one of the most epic songs in the world and the album Humanoid is one EPIC album that everyone should get! The live is just EPIC!

How can the rest of that common stuff like Gaga compare to this? This has so much more meaning than others.

6 Uprising - Muse

Thank goodness this song is ranked higher than Miley Cyrus' dreadful song Party in the USA

Now this song is just cool!

Should be a lot higher.

7 You Belong with Me - Taylor Swift

This is like the best song ever! I love it so much! HOW COME ITS ON THE 12th SPOT?! It deserves to be in the top 5! Please vote for this.

YES! Not the best in terms of lyrics and sound, but it's SO FUN TO JAM TO!


8 Beautiful - Eminem

Eminem is better than all other rappers in the game...not to mention michael jaclson

Should be in the top.. Listen and you will be yourself.. One of the best songs of Eminem>>

9 She Wolf - Shakira

The beat is so addictive, the voice is addictive, everything is just so wonderful.

10 The Climb - Miley Cyrus


Best song ever, better than all that pseudo talented wannabe music called rock and metal.

The Contenders

11 Good Life - Onerepublic

Love it! So uplifting! Why is this amazing work of art so low?

12 Paparazzi - Lady Gaga
13 Whataya Want from Me - Adam Lambert

Best adam lambert song

14 The Night - Disturbed

The Night is 2008... but it beats any other crap on this list, no doubt. I mean, seriously, why the hell are some of these songs popular? The Night is better than anything... - thunder850

This is a badass song. - 906389

15 Savior - Rise Against

By far the greatest song to come out in 2009.

16 If U Seek Amy - Britney Spears
17 You Found Me - The Fray
18 I Gotta Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas

A great song to give you mood too starting or go to party - MatrixGuy

Best song ever! Why isn't "In the End" on the list?!

This song is amazing! It was number one for 14 weeks and The BEP were number 1 for 26 weeks in a row with this and Boom Boom Pow

Hello #2 song of the 21st century according to billboard!

19 Jai Ho - A. R. Rahman & The Pussycat Dolls

A Bollywood classic being sample makes this the best song the Pussycat Dolls have done. 3.5/5 - ProPanda

greatest song ever written on this planet. A.R. Rehman has done the finest job ever on this music...!

Superb as it's movie "Slumdog Millionaire" - MatrixGuy

Amazing song! One of my favorite songs from the Pussycat Dolls. (And yes, I do legitimately enjoy PCD songs. Don’t judge me)

20 Gives You Hell - All-American Rejects

What a voice! Catchy beat

21 Fire - Kasabian

The video is awesome. They rob a bank and use guitars as submachine guns. Who needs the likes of Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus when you can have Kasabian?

A proper band doing proper music. It's just a shame that most American people don't appreciate british indie bands.

This was one of the reasons why Kasabian won a Brit Award for best British Group at the Brit Awards.

I'm on fore for this somg

22 Crystalised - The xx
23 1901 - Phoenix
24 Monster - Skillet

How is this so underrated?

25 Teaching Angels How to Fly - Jackie Evancho

The song is real, and too, the girl Jackie Evancho... About a child who went home to Heaven... You cannot be human, if this song does not make you feel the loss of a child.

She had such a voice at 9 years of age, incredible.

From the CD "Prelude To A Dream", and a real tear-jerker.

Who is she and why does she keep popping up on random lists?
