Best Songs of the 2010s


The Top Ten

1 The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

From "Game Of Thrones".
Dark and haunting, yet beautiful vocals that this girl was born to sing.

This interesting track from the monumental album "Awakening" gets a haunting yet exquisite treatment from Jackie. - BobG

I have never heard of 5 of the top 6

I love Jackie Evancho's version of this theme.

2 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

The only song I can listen to over and over and enjoy it like it's the first time I heard it

Get this up into the top 10, we need a song to break up the rock crowd. - JackMM

How on earth isn't this no1 it went like triple platinum or someething

3 Rolling in the Deep - Adele
4 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Should be higher than all of these songs it's amazing

Eminem is always the best

Best song

5 Somebody That I Used to Know - Gotye

Best song I ever heard

Correction it's Sombody I Used to Know. Still a modern day classic in the making reguardless.

6 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Great song that is awesome in every meaning of the word. Deserves to be number 1 on the list and still better than all the overrated pop/rap garbage that is on this list

You're joking! Number 11? This song kicks too much ass and it sounds much much better than all the songs on this list!

Aw yeah! - Elijah_Cook

Metal or not, this song is mind blowing. the bass drum was awesome. don't know if its rev or portnoy though. - zxm

7 Do I Wanna Know? - Arctic Monkeys
8 Someone Like You - Adele

Needs to be no1, the song to every break up

9 Counting Stars - OneRepublic
10 On GP - Death Grips

The Newcomers

? Sign of the Times - Harry Styles
? Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

The Contenders

11 Jesus Alone - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
12 Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

Loved this song since... Firt time I heard it! Meaning, pure... People should make more songs like this... Besides, Adele is a great singer!

13 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

Underrated masterpiece that should be number 1 if you listen to this and tell me its bad you have no good taste in music - christangrant

#358? Oh... Guys, do yourself a favour and give a listen to this masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

Needs to be number 1 - christangrant

Yay! It's number 4 now! - Aragorn98

14 Gold on the Ceiling - The Black Keys
15 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa
16 Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair - Arctic Monkeys

I love to see Arctic Monkeys so high (I think they deserve the #1 stop) but I don't understand why this song? It's good, but Arctic Monkeys has done so much better the past 5 years than this, listen to 20 seconds of Knee Socks, Do I Wanna Know or No. 1 party anthem and be blown away.

A British song from an awesome British band. Arctic Monkeys are here to stay. Without these guys there probably would be no Automatic or Fratellis.

This is certainally a fresh sound from an equally fresh british band. Anything that puts a nail in generic pop's coffin can only be a good thing.

17 Not Afraid - Eminem

#85? This is the best song from the best artist

18 Dirty Rotten Bastards - Green Day

Wonderful and very very underrated song! The modern Jesus of Suburbia

I Love The Title More Than The Song Itself. Every time I Look At The Tittle I Laugh

Not gonna lie, this was one of my favorites from Tre. - ProPanda

19 Can You Smell the Napalm - The George Jacobs Experience

The 50s had Elvis, the 60s had The Beatles, the 70s had Led Zeppelin, the 80s had Michael Jackson, the 90s had Nirvana and grunge, the 2010s had The George Jacobs Experience

A true masterpiece, definitely under rated and should be in the top 20... At Least

Great song, catchy chorus, definitely should be higher

20 Demons - Imagine Dragons
21 Starboy - The Weeknd
22 Spit Out the Bone - Metallica

Metallica is back! - Metal_Treasure

23 Re-Wired - Kasabian

Heard in the video game Sleeping Dogs.

This song is from Kasabian's latest album Velociraptor. Kasabian are probably the most consistant in terms of quality.

24 Blackstar - David Bowie

I perfer lazurus, but still, this is just amazing, one of bowies best - RecklessGreed

25 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

This song bursts with emotion and the singing! The music! The vibe! It all lifts our spirits! It is truly mesmerizing! And I expected it to be in the top ten and it isn't even on the list? That is shocking! Come on people, take a listen please! You've got to! It's better than all these guys!

26 Buried Above Ground - Giles Corey
