The Top Ten

1 Burning in the Skies - Linkin Park Burning in the Skies - Linkin Park

Great song b7t I think this was made in 2019

That's how you call a Linkin Park song!
I JUST LOVE IT.
Beats all others in here. Linkin Park is a juxtaposition on all the best bands ever and rules the earth. It beats Metallica, Poets Of the fall, Breaking Benjamin, Green Day, and IS A GOD!

THe great songs of Linkin Park:Burning in the skies, IriDescent, new Divide, what we don't know, catalyst, Numb, in the end, paper cut, held in hands, What I've done, Not alone, rolling in the deep, waiting 4 the end

Linkin Park know to make awesome music...
Every time I listen to this song I fall more in love with it...
Linkin Park truly are God of Music

2 Rolling in the Deep - Adele Rolling in the Deep - Adele

This was my jam when I was younger. I miss those days. - Misfire

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" TheTopTens.com is wrong, very very wrong.

I mean, I really like Linkin Park, but this is 7 times better.

3 Someone Like You - Adele Someone Like You - Adele

AMZZING and heartfelt

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

4 On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez

Best song ever! It makes me want to dance a lot. Such a legendary song. Still exists. Miss the old days. Nowadays, you can't even feel the taste of modern music. Only some are delicious.

I LOVE THIS SONG!

Sweet song

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.

5 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

Awesome!
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!

No words to express my feelings while listening to this song

6 My Heart is Broken - Evanescence

Evanescence is amazing. This song should be higher up!

Awesome song - spodermanfan1000

7 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

Easily the best

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!

8 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

Would have totally been number one if Kanye West had nothing to do with it. Pitbull and Dre also did some good songs.

I like the version without Kanye.

9 I Need a Doctor - Dr. Dre

This will smash up Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne

Great song

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.

10 Born This Way - Lady Gaga

I love this song! It's meaningful, fun, and tells you that you shouldn't have to hide who you really are. - PandasNGaga

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.

The Contenders

11 Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

It is the most beautiful song I have ever heard. Adele sung it very beautifully. What an awesome song it is.

Song is beautiful and unique. - madoog

One of my favorites.

Under E.T, funny - GodFlowey

12 Hold It Against Me - Britney Spears

WHOA! Blast off Song

This is one of the best song I have ever heard in years... Of course there are better songs... But I kinda like' this song

I love this song! I think it has a good beat and she sounds lovely.

The most inspirational Britney Spears song ever! Get this to #1!

Magical song - madoog

13 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.

14 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.

I do not like this. No. - madoog

15 Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5

THIS IS THE AWESOMEST SONG OF THE YEAR! Should be in the top ten at least! Makes everyone move like Jagger!

It just ROCKS! I was actually looking for this song in the top ten. I was shocked that it is not there! Please vote for this song people! Bring it to the top 10!

It's a good song should be in top three songs... It really rocks... I've got the moves like Jagger. Is one of my favourite songs

This is a great song it has a good beat. I also like songs that go faster like this one! I also went to Maroon 5's concert I love their songs a lot. I think this should be at the top of the list. Please vote for this song.

16 Iridescent - Linkin Park

This is the best. It is very inspiring! It must be at the top and not here. This one of my best songs ever. The great musician Chester and his crew has done it again by creating this super-duper hit song.

17 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.

"Linkin Park just sing crap" you really should learn to respect the superior bands. - BillyBobJoe

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.

This song is fun, beautiful, and an awesome song off of an awesome album, Born This Way! - PandasNGaga

23 What You Want - Evanescence

Amy Lee is amazing during this song, so is the instrumentation. - Swellow

NOT NUMBER 1 what - spodermanfan1000

24 Lotus Flower - Radiohead

Come on, guys. Rate it. Radiohead members brought you truly masterpiece, and you don't even pay attention to them and their art. Don't forget that they made 4 albums that became one of the best albums of all time (OK Computer, Kid A, The Bends and In Rainbows).

26 All of the Lights - Kanye West

My #1. Kanye is great, Rihanna is great, everyone is good, and the trumpets are incredible.

This is song won 2 grammy awards and was nominated for 2011 best song in the 54th grammy awards edition. It is one of the best songs I have ever heard

This song is just so glorious. Hell, forget 2011. I think this might be the best song of the decade so far.

Everything about this song is perfect. I don't see how it is not in the top 5!

27 My Town - Hollywood Undead
28 Somebody that I Used to Know - Gotye

It should be No. #1

Great Pop Song

Get this higher!

29 Undefeated - Jason Derulo
30 Blow - Ke$ha

I absolutely love this song, I think it is one of her bests ever, and definetely the best song on Cannibal! - keshaluvr

GO KE$$$$$$$$$$$HA YOU GO ANIMAL SHE SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 3 really KE$$$$$HA IS WAY BETTER THAN EVANESCENCE - dylangerleibold

31 Lighters - Bad Meets Evil

Best Song of 2011 in my Opinion, and Yeah, Eminem's lyrics is awesome, Please Vote for this song you all. I think it should be Number one Song of 2011. Damn man, its so awesome I can't stop listening to it, (Right now I am listening to it too) so what chu waiting for please vote for this and listen to it if you haven't done that till now

Please make this number 1! Most of the music this year has been appalling and this was like a breath of fresh air. Actually quite a lot of good electronic music was released, but that kind of stuff never reaches a mainstream audience. This one manages to keep the classic bad meets evel sound and bring it into 2011!

Lighters just sounds so depressing. I acknowledge that the song has meaning. "sky full of lighters" I think that is supposed to be a metaphor that means dreams. Bruno Mars's voice makes the song even more depressing. I do not like Lighters. I pass on this. - madoog

Best song ever. I love this song. Both Eminem and bruno mars are the best singers of the world.

32 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

Why is this so far back, it is the best song cause she has more talent than most people in front of her

This was definitely the bast song of 2011, demis voice is flawless in every song but this one gave me hope and it made me believe.

33 In Waves - Trivium
34 I Wanna Go - Britney Spears

I love this song. I first listened to it on a bravo commricial.

This song should be numer 1 it's so catchy.

35 Killed by Love - JLS
36 We Found Love - Rihanna

No. Sure. Rihanna's vocals are all nice, but there is something about this song. I do not know how to describe the instrumental --- that combined with repetitive lyrics does not work for me. I listened to eleven samples of this song and still do not like it. - madoog

People, are you serious? 67th? It's the best song ever!

What's wrong with everyone?
Have you people forgotten "RIHANNA"... We Found Love totally rocks!

37 N***** In Paris - Jay-Z & Kanye West

This song is absolutely appealing. Jay Z and Kanye West collaboration is successful, and they did well. The hard beats, the static sounds, the vocals / The song has interesting verses. This is unique. This song goes hard. This song got me nodding my head. It is a great song from the collaborative Watch The Throne album. - madoog

That is a horrible name that makes me never want to hear about it again. I will try to never hear it.

The Beat, the Lines, the baller-ness. If you go by how catchy a song is, this is still ahead of everything else. I get if Rap isn't your thing, and if you don't like their excessively baller braggadocio attitudes though (but... BALL SO HARD).
I like Linkin Park and have heard a lot of their music, but there are too many fanboys/fangirls that pick them over everything else no matter what. I will say, Burning In the Skies is my favorite song off that album.
However, you should be judging music on a combination of catchiness, melody, lyrics, message, production, and overall quality of the artist. In no order whatsoever.
Finally, don't put songs on a yearly list when they were released off an album in a different year. That means you're judging the song off of popularity at the point of time, not quality.

The is appealing. It my type of song and I just love it. The collab is incredible, the verses and lyrics are fantastic while the flow is just phenomenal...and the 'N' stands for n! gga. This is hardcore and dope at all costs. 5/5 - AlphaQ

38 You and I - Lady Gaga
39 S&M - Rihanna
40 The Collapse - Adelitas Way
41 Lie to Me - The Wanted
42 Not Ready to Die - Avenged Sevenfold

There are currently 31 songs on this list. 29 of them are absolutely horrible pop crap that ignorant people listen to. This (and So Far Away) are the ONLY GOOD SONGS ON THIS LIST

... and... why is Friday on here? It's actually the worst song of all time, never mind best of 2011.

*sigh* - thunder850

43 I'm Going to Do It - Giles Corey

Barrett isn't an artist for everyone (and I'm not entirely sure if he is one for me), but I feel like everyone should give this a listen anyway. Absolutely depressing and sad. Crushes your soul. - DCfnaf
