2 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

Who gives if it's the popular one? The music is so infectious - everyday I'm shuffling!

I don't even know what the hell the first song is, but LMFAO has a great song. So, I am happy that it is the second song out of ten. You should all tots comment

This music is so addictive! I passed the whole summer saying "Everyday I'm Shuffling! " I don't care if it is commercial. I normally don't hear that type of songs, but this one made me addicted to all of LMFAO's songs, and made me become a huge fan of them! They're just so different and funny, the thing the music industry was just in need.

No one can say no to this addicting song. I couldn't stop shuffling to this song because its awesome and still is today

3 Give Me Everything - Pitbull Give Me Everything - Pitbull

Best song ever and it's the first time I've heard it! It's just to amazing. I bet this is the best song ever because they use so good lyrics

Best song ever especially it being pitbull... Much better than kanye west... Yeah. Well why don't you add maroon 5 moves like jagger? That is amazing.

Absolutely brilliant song as the rapping is sick and a slowed down chorus is a mach made in heaven!

I just do not like this song. - madoog

4 On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft Pitbull On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft Pitbull

I think this song is quality! It has all the moves the beats and all of the talents we need in a song. Simply made and acted.

Before this, I've never been real familiar with Jennifer Lopez or Pitbull. But both of them are awesome in this song and I just don't know why I like this more than "Give Me Everything" but I just do. This is surprisingly awesome!

Just outstanding! Such a good Party song! It makes you just wanna dance to it! FANTASTIC! I'm having to write a lot here! Great

This song sounds awesome and catchy. - madoog

5 Rolling In The Deep - Adele Rolling In The Deep - Adele

THE BEST. A song that won grammy award for best record is at 12th you've got to be kidding me the vocals leave you breathless

"Rolling in the Deep" is the best song on this list. The song shows great emotion and shall be at #1. This song was according to Billboard, the top music ranking industry in the world, "#1 on the Year end Charts of 2011" is wrong, very very wrong.

I do not find this song that good. I just do not like this song. - madoog

This song is number 1 in billboard

6 I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre

This will smash up Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne

This is definitely the best song of 2011, Eminem always does make the best songs of each year

It features Eminem. That's why its the Best. And Dr. Dre n Skylar grey have also done Great Job. Please check my youtube Channel- PRATHAMESH207. It Has great Eminem Remixes.

This song is so heavy and dark, yet I do not like it. - madoog

8 Someone Like You - Adele Someone Like You - Adele

The greatest song of the last 10 years, and I find it at the 11th position... All the people seem to be deaf...

She is so legitimate, everyone is a giant fan of her my sister even has her saint name as adele why do people chose lincoln park over the best singer of the 21st century

This is another song of 2011 that I do not like --- so depressing. The piano and her vocals make Someone Like You so depressing. - madoog

This one just gives me ALL the feels. - theOpinionatedOne

9 E.T. - Katy Perry E.T. - Katy Perry

In my opinion, this is the best song I have ever heard in my life (much better than most songs these days) and also the best song of Katy Perry

This song is so darn good. Katy Perry's vocals --- kiss me, ki- ki- kiss me --- are so good. I love Kanye's auto-tune vocals. This is a song that needed auto-tune. - madoog

So catchy! Literally, the first time I heard this song, I couldn't stop singing it for hours!

Katy perry has amazing voice and she is beautiful.

10 Born This Way - Lady Gaga Born This Way - Lady Gaga

The BEST of lady Gaga... According to me! She really Put up a lot of Hard Work in the Making of Such a Superb Audio-Visual! But "Marry the Night" n "You and I" too deserve a spot in the TOP TEN LIST!

This song is extremely important, unlike other songs that simply entertain, and Lady Gaga really wanted to convey something important... think about it. So I think this song best in 2011

This is one of her best songs. Everybody hates it because it sounds like Express Yourself. That isn't fair. Everybody has a influence she just wrote a song like that. She was probably thinking about the song when she wrote Born This Way.

This song is the best and Lady Gaga is the best so it must be in the top tens. People, vote it now to get higher! The rhythm and voice are awesome, the dance is perfect, the beat is the best and it is in my head all day!

The Contenders

11 Paradise - Coldplay Paradise - Coldplay

This song is just amazing! I listen to it approximately 35 times per day. I just love this song! I mean, what the hell? Number 25! Linkin Park just sing crap while Coldplay's music can actually be heard, nice meaning, nice tune. Every time I listen to this song, I forgot about this world and I feel like I am in a paradise.

One of the best song of Coldplay.

This song is the best song by Coldplay, why isn't this song in the top ten list.

This song is amazing. Great lyrics, beat, vocals, everything is amazing in this song.

13 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

Amazing song it should be number 1, this is simply the best Avenged Sevenfold song ever. This song was dedicated to James Owen James Owen Sullivan aka The Rev we will remember him foREVer!

Amazing performance.

Music, lyrics, vocals are perfect.

Avenged Sevenfold rocks.

No doubt about a grammy for Hard rock performance.

Makes you weep like a baby. And the solo is heavenly! Just close your eyes while listening to the song and it all becomes clear!

This should be number 2, not Party Rock Anthem.

17 These Days - Foo Fighters These Days - Foo Fighters

How is ' LMFAO and Pitbull higher than Foo Fighters!? This song has exceptional lyrics and vocals, the guitar riff is amazing, and Taylor Hawkins' drumming is amazing as always. Another thing; this song/band stand out from most of the other ones on this list: it's all ligit. No auto-tune, real drums, written by Dave Grohl, not some random ten people get paid to write lyrics that a kindergartener can write. This song isn't farmed out for money, this song is great and everything about it is powerful; the meaning and vocals. This is definitely the best song of 2011, tied with every other song in this album, of course.

18 Back to December - Taylor Swift Back to December - Taylor Swift

I usually hate Taylor Swift's music. I think it's all immature garbage that is an example of pretty much everything wrong about relationships.

However, this song. Simply put, it's everything that the other Taylor Swift songs are not. It's an apology that actually sounds sincere and heartfelt. For a while I hoped she could continue in this more mature direction. Unfortunately, she went back to square one with "We are never ever getting back together". But for a while that potential was there.

She's the best! Her lyrics are so awesome... No one can beat Taylor Swift's Back To December. and also her awesome songs in her album like mine, speak now, story of us, ours

Taylor Swift is classic, original, and unique. She is actually appropriate too. She is a role model. The best singer a girl could follow. No one can beat Taylor Swift's Back To December.

And I Go Back To December All The Time
