The Top Ten

1 Not Afraid - Eminem

This song has awesome beats and lyrics! "All those who look down on me I'm tearing down your balcony" "I shouldn't have to rhyme these words in a rhythm for you to know its a rap" - Atliens

has a very hidden message! must listen to multiple times with lyrics!

This song rocks and if you don't think so you're crazy

This and LTWYL are amazing, but I like this one better because it's Eminem on its own. Basically reminds me of the past, the present, and the future. 11/10 - StarlightSpanks

2 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

The Rihanna & Eminem combination result this phenomenal song - MatrixGuy

This song is so sad, yet so powerful. The guitar is very fitting; I like how it sounds. Eminem's verses are outstanding, especially the volcano one. Rihanna's voice is outstanding. This is the song. The anthem really touched me. It deserves to be high on this list. - madoog

This is epic. rihanna blows up the chorus and Eminem rules the rap kingdom as usual. perfect combination in my opinion.

This is just amazing. 11/10. - lovefrombadlands

3 Firework - Katy Perry

I get that Firework is inspiring, upbeat, and even has a cello, but this song does not cut it for me. Overall, it is a bit unappealing. Why is she naked on a cotton candy cloud? The cover art should be edited. - madoog

I love this song, but my favorite will always be Wide Awake.

This should be in first! - frankie44

Very inspirational song

4 Waiting for the End - Linkin Park

Ignore the guy below... This songs is great because it's inspiring, has a beautiful tune, awesome lyrics and meaning, not to say Eminem bad( the best rapper along with Jay-z)but this song is really good and you'll go on hearing it... This song's brilliant but don't compare it with new divide, breaking the habit, numb or in the end cause it's different than the others but equally magical.

It should be against the law to dislike this amazing song from Linkin Park's great new album. - RickLp27

Their new stuff is great... A bit slow... But still nice

Why not 1 - wriddhak

5 Airplanes - B.o.B

This is my all time favorite song!

Ugh. I do not like how Airplanes sounds. - madoog

This came out when I was five, I am 11 now and it is still so dynamic, pure and beautiful: it always sounds like such a hopeful song and B.O.B's rapping and Hayley Williams vocals are phenomenal. "Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I could really use a wish right now, wish right now." If you compare some rapped songs today to that song, Airplanes lyrics is so clear.

It also has meaning, it shares the details of an average song artist ("Cause after all the partyin' and smashin' and crashin' and all the glitz and the glam, and the fashion and all the pandemonium and all the madness there comes a time where you fade to the blackness).

Go on youtube and type in "B.O.B ft Hayley Williams -Airplanes" The musical.ly to this sounds so sweet and there is quite a lot of people doing it, after all these years.

6 Grenade - Bruno Mars

Its a great song it has a great beat I could listen to that song all day its about this person who would do any thing for this girl and she breaks his heart she was cheating on him. All he wanted is her love. He was pulling a piano to her house to probally sing a song.

The song is not garbage but unlikable, in my opinion. - madoog

Why is this at number 9?! This is the best song ever.

Grenade was so good!

7 Dynamite - Taio Cruz

Dynamite is catchy, amazing, and all 'bout having fun partying. It's not like one of those songs that are all about lovey dovey. It makes me wanna dance!

Sure. It is upbeat, about partying, compares partying to dynamite, but the song just does not appeal to me. I do not like Dynamite. - madoog

It's the most rocking song ever and makes me wanna dance every time I hear it!

8 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

This song Is Amazing! Avenged Sevenfold is probably the best band out there! They should be number one!

This is amazing. Eminem sucks. This is the best, followed by the Catalyst, and then Waiting for the End, then Snuff. Nightmare shows that A7X can go to a darker more serious sound, and still make an incredible sound. And the Album is one of their bests too! FoREVer

THIS IS NUMBER 1. HOW ARE Eminem AND KATY PERRY AHEAD OF THIS! NIIIGHTMARE IS BADASS!

9 Alejandro - Lady Gaga
10 O Mio Babbino Caro - Jackie Evancho

When 10-year old Jackie Evancho came out of nowhere and delivered this amazing rendition on America's Got Talent, it was so unbelievable, some people still don't believe it was real. The nation was stunned.

A history making performance

Since Jackie's performance, so many talent show hopefuls have tried this song. But none of them do it as well as Jackie did. - BobG

The only good child singer

The Newcomers

? Deuces - Chris Brown
? The Show Goes On - Lupe Fiasco

The Contenders

11 Only Girl (In the World) - Rihanna

I think this song addresses a soulmate. My music taste is very different. This song is not on my taste. - madoog

How isn't this number 1! :O - spodermanfan1000

Great song. - DaisyandRosalina

12 We Used to Wait - Arcade Fire
13 We R Who We R - Ke$ha

This song is great, but where it Tik Tok?

That's probably the best song of 2010, kesha is the sexiest singer and has rocked every dance floor across the world with this song. You ve to be paralysed to not dance and rock yourself out when you hear this song

No way no. It is kind of bad. - madoog

14 F**k You - Cee Lo Green

listen to this song its so good! if your offended or whatever then listen to "forget you" - Atliens

I just do not like this song. - madoog

Great - Hater

15 DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love - Usher

I do not hate this song. Usher sings like he means it, but I do not care for this upbeat vibrant song. - madoog

16 Teenage Dream - Katy Perry

I say no to this song. - madoog

Omygosh this song snatch me every time

17 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

Colorful sounds, fast drums, bells and echoing bells, strong vocals, and meaningful / This romantic song does not appeal to me. I do not like this particular Bruno Mars song. - madoog

most amazing touching song for us girls - ariluvsjb

When I see this song
There's not a thing that I would change
Because it's amazing
Just the way it is - lovefrombadlands

18 The Catalyst - Linkin Park
19 Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) - Shakira

How does this ANTHEM is not even in the Top 10? It's one of the most popular songs of 2010 - AtlasUniverse

20 Tightrope - Janelle Monae

I do not dislike this song. It is upbeat and original. - madoog

21 Raise Your Glass - P!nk

Raise Your Glass is one Pink song that I do not like, somehow. It is not my taste. - madoog

Yes! - lovefrombadlands

22 Awake and Alive - Skillet
23 Misery - Maroon 5
24 I Like It - Enrique Iglesias

I know this one isn't the best but it should be above Usher, Ke$ha, Taio Cruz songs. I salute the only male popstar left in this world where rock, R&be & hip hop is all that male singers prefer to sing.

You can jump up and down to this song it's so catchy!

The song, somehow, does not annoy me. I am neutral. - madoog

Ewww this song is terrible. It's generic for one thing. Second, Enrique's voice. It's jarring and Justin Bieber-esque. Third, Pitbull. He has nothing on Enrique's Spanish skills.

0/5 - WonkeyDude98

25 Tighten Up - The Black Keys

This song should be higher, unfortunately no one has heard it before

26 OMG - Usher

I loved this song when I was 8 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

This song is hot and absolutely stunning. Usher and will.i.am's collaboration is successful. I like the rhyming. - madoog

27 Need You Now - Lady Antebellum
28 Runaway - Kanye West & Pusha T

Even the last 3-4 minutes of weird distortion work. I understand that a lot of people have a very low opinion of Kanye West, but this song is deep, personal, acknowledges that, and is epic. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best songs of the millennium so far.

Thing! This song is nine minutes? Anyway, it is cold and depressing, and I do not like it. - madoog

Not just the best song by Kanye, the best song of 2010, PERIOD. - SwagFlicks

29 Resistance - Muse

If you know someone who is a Muse hater, go to their house, smash up any of their Justin Bieber & one direction CDs, stay there and wait till they get home, smash their head against a brick wall, tie them to the back of your car and drive them to the nearest motorway, throw them onto the motorway and go home and celebrate with Muse

30 You are Not Alone - Mavis Staples
31 Your Love is My Drug - Ke$ha
32 Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) - Arcade Fire
33 Diplomat's Son - Vampire Weekend
34 Love the Way You Lie (Part II) - Rihanna

Needs to be higha - spodermanfan1000

35 The Time - Black Eyed Peas
36 Nothin' On You - B.o.B

A memorable song from 2010, Nothing On You is sweet and original. - madoog

37 Lost In the World - Kanye West & Bon Iver
38 Monster - Kanye West, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj & Bon Iver

Monster is intense, but I am neutral. - madoog

39 Do It Like a Dude - Jessie J
40 Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

Best song of 2010

41 Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z
42 The Only Exception - Paramore

Pure amazingness, Hayley Williams seriously is an amazing singer, and the guitars and drums from Zac, Josh, Taylor, and Jeremy complete this song and make it even more beautiful. The lyrics are also amazing. The only thing is that this is from 2009, not 2010.

43 California Gurls - Katy Perry

This song is fun. - madoog

44 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

The song is disguised as happy, but it is actually sad. - madoog

At least at top 10... Best. Best. Best...

45 Happiness - Alexis Jordan
46 I Am Not a Robot - Marina and the Diamonds
47 Welcome to the Family - Avenged Sevenfold
48 A Year Without Rain - Selena Gomez
49 Written In the Stars - Tinie Tempah

Underrated song. Should be higher!

50 Boulevard of Broken Dreams (Broadway Recording) - Green Day
