Greatest Rock Songs of the 21st Century


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Letters from the Sky - Civil Twilight V 1 Comment
222 Charlie Brown - Coldplay

It gives me a feel of parallel rock. Nice rhythm though.

223 Do I Wanna Know? - Arctic Monkeys

This is an amazing song, like all of the AM's songs, but I think that the reason it is so far down in this list is that it is not very well-known by even British people as a single, as it peaked at only number 14 in charts (stupid mainstream music lovers not recognising good music! ) and, in the US, it would be relatively unknown because, despite the fact that it reached the top of the Billboard Alternative Chart, it only reached number 70 in the Hot 100.

How are Arctic Monkeys down at the bottom and all these mediocre songs ahead of it?!

Too soft to be rock? Well rock ain't always scream-o-shout. Soft ballad can give a depth to rock.

232 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

This song brakes my heart every time I hear it and it will continue to do so. The song is a great tune both musically and lyrically.

It was one of my favorite songs growing up and I don't know about all yall city folks but I HATE rap it is so stupid! Like I said (I think) I do not like all of those firkin raps! It gets on my last nerve! So like if you think the same!

Needs to be way higher. Billie wrote this song about his father who died when Billie was only 10.

Possibly my 2nd favorite song ever. After Good Riddance
