Top Ten Coolest Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

It was the best song in the world

Smells like POOP, it's so dirty, oh udfbgfnksd

A bit overrated, especially compared to the stuff on In Utereo. - andtheskyfell

Good song first time hearing it and its like music to my ears

2 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

This song is SO AMAZING! Everything about it is awesome! Cannot recommend it (and all Queen music, frankly) enough!

This is a completely different style of music, comprised of many styles, and FREDDIE MERCURY THE GREATEST SINGER OF ALL TIME WITH A 4 OCTAVE VOCAL RANGE 4!

Goodest ever

Mama just killed a man put a gun against this head pull my trigger now he's dead it's a bit creepy but AWESOME!

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem

It is awesome

It is amazingly cool! The lyrics rock! A great work from M.

Eminem is the best rapper of all time and this is the best song by Eminem. A must listen song for any hip hop / rap fan

The beat is just AMAZING!

4 In the End - Linkin Park

Not the best Linkin Park song as being a Linkin Park fan I know this is far from the best Linkin Park song and numb isn't the best Linkin Park song either the best songs by Linkin Park are non of the singles

In the end is so awesome song. One of the best song ever

Superb song by Linkin Park. It is nothing to say but I have to tell this is best song ever. The combination of music lines are awesome.

I love this song! One of the best songs from Linkin Park.

7 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Ah no, who put Justin Bieber's "Baby" on here. Whoever did does not know about this giant masterpiece. It is claimed by most fans of rock n roll as the single best song of all time.

Is this a joke? 7th? This song was made by divinity. It is HANDS DOWN the greatest song of all time.

Stairway to Heaven ranks #2 on Best Songs of All Time, and Led Zeppelin #1 on greatest rock bands. - Alkadikce

The lyrics, the vocals, the arrangement and Jimmy Page guitar.. Best song of all time. Period.

Chris Brown over Led Zeppelin? Seriously?

8 Side of a Bullet - Nickelback

Not even nickelback likes nickelback!

Why does no one like Nickleback?

Because they're overproduced, uninspired, homogeneous swill. - andtheskyfell

Uh... no. Nickelback has two good songs. Not this one.

9 Learn to Fly - Foo Fighters

I agree with whoever said this list is random. I wouldn't necessarily call Smells Like Teen Spirit the coolest song, I think that In The End is a much more cool song than stairway to heaven and bohemian rhapsody, I know that those two are only that high up because they are like the two most popular songs ever. Anyways, the foos are the G.O.A.T of post-grunge music and this song is very cool and I don't know why nickelback is in the top ten. I feel like a lot of other songs should have made the top ten for example: The Kids Aren't Alright -The Offspring, Holiday- Green Day, Otherside -Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Way I am - Eminem, Radioactive(or Demons) -Imagine Dragons, All my life -Foo Fighters, Savior - Rise Against, I hate everything about you - Three Days Grace, So Cold -Breaking Benjamin, The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin, This love - Maroon 5, Sabotage- Beastie Boys, Till I collapse -Eminem, BYOB - System of a Down, Chop Suey! - System Of A Down, Faint -Linkin Park, Boulevard ...more - Revrad

This is the best song I have ever listened

Most random list I've ever seen.

10 Walk - Pantera

BA metal song, strong bass guitar

Currently hooked on this song and just think it is a super badass song! It's guitar riff just makes you bob your head to it and the vocals are deep and well-pitched. Coolest song if all time in my book..


The Contenders

11 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Definitely a song of epic proportions that deserves not to be passed up. This is probably their 2nd best song and makes you feel like you are stomping through a football field like a badass.

Why are Eminem, Lil Wayne, Chris brown and Bruno mars ahead of this! - EthansProfile

I thought this was a cool songs list half the songs don't even count as cool.

Great song to play during marathon sex

12 Rock and Roll All Nite - Kiss

Over rated, obnoxious, overly simple and pretty much annoying. If they didn't have the make up and costumes on stage-no one would have cared or remembered them. Musicianship was to say the least, lackluster.

Um dude, This isn't "Most Overrated Songs". Your on the wrong list mate - Mumbizz01


13 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

The godfather of heavy metal!
The prince of darkness!
Ozzy should be way up there

oh yes! - ParasN2000

14 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses

A greatest classical mind blowing melodies on rock history...


15 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

It's a '60s song, therefore it's cool, everything about the 60s is cool, it's my favourite decade. No, I'm not wearing nostalgia goggles, how do I know, because I wasn't alive in the '60s, therefore I can't be nostalgic about it, but I've seen pictures and movies of it so I know what it was like, and the fashion and music was really cool.


16 Turn Up the Music - Chris Brown

My fave my name is Amber I'm telling you that because of your song

He is awesome

Super cool and great dance moves.


17 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

Cliff burton is so coool rip my guy

18 Breezin' - George Benson
19 99 Luftballons - Nena

If you know how to speak and understand German its really good

You do know there's an English version, right? I mean - I prefer the German version, but we can pretty much get what the song says by listening to the translation. - andtheskyfell

20 Photograph - Nickelback

Wow - Nickelback really bastardized this one! - andtheskyfell

It's a bird, it's a plane, no.

It's a deaf Leopard. - IronSabbathPriest

I gust love it

So Nickelback Rip offed definitely Leppard? - GunsNRosesLover

22 Chicken Fried - Zac Brown Band

I hear my dad play this song a lot on the computer. He really likes this song and so does my mom.

I hate country but zac brown is a great musician

Fried chicken yum xDDD

This song is amazing :) :O :0 :o :E :I ;-;

23 Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones

I love the sitar... along with great vocals.

Very sad if you know what it really means, but great song.

What it really means, aka the intentional fallacy. Interpret what the song says, not what the artists says the song says. - andtheskyfell

24 Master of Puppets - Metallica
25 Grenade - Bruno Mars

This dude has no talent he uses auto tune and doesn't play an instrument

Amazing song by Bruno mars! Just the best - shafirizvi

Bruno's voice is just so calming and he's one of the few singers with real talent out there

I hope you chose this

This is one of MJ's best, without a doubt. It's got great beat that you can dance to and a cool voice-over by the legendary Vincent Price. Even the music video is pretty cool.
