Greatest Rock Songs of the 21st Century


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

This song embodies System of a Down entirely. It has their wit, lyrical power, Serj's amazing vocal range, Daron's crazy riffing, and John and Shavo's ability to keep it all together. Definitely one of the best songs of the century (so far)

Why is this song so low? Really are you kidding me with in the end at number 1? This song should should be in that spot. I can't believe this list

It's one of the most awesome song of the century, would be in top 10

THIS Should be higher there an amazing band

22 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish

A monument in modern music, like a symphony played over the tunes of a rock song, with the London Philharmonic Orchestra providing the classical elements of this epic Symphonic metal track - and Tarja's voice... oh, Tarja sings like an angel. The different segments of the 10 minute track offer a wide range of moods and styles, fantasy-like, dramatic, slow, calm, wild and threatening, dreamy and more...

(Just wish it wouldn't end with a fade out) - Martin_Canine

23 New Divide - Linkin Park

The hook is sung very passionately and the use of electric guitars in this song is spectacular enough to leave you speechless. That's two things I highly commend in any rock song. That's not something you see so often nowadays with the pathetic crap by the likes of ariana grande and jennifer Lopez.

What the hell this song should be number 1. This song is supperb. Chester has the greatest voice. The special special effects are very good. This song has a meaning. This song is supperb just listen to it
Great special effects by Mr. Hahn and chester at his best. In this song he goes to the highest pitch possible... The guitar part is very good... The robotic tabs after the second chorus sounds awesome.

In this list it is no.3 This site is fake. Greatest and best song of all time

How come there's so much Linkin Park song on this list

25 Knights of Cydonia - Muse

I'm Linkin Park fan but this song is better than in the end m

There's no need to explain it.

How are Linkin Park in the top ten. Seriously? What happened to music.

This song + man with the harmonica... love it!

26 Psychosocial - Slipknot

Purely Psycho. The music will make you bang your head, not literally but metaphorically.

27 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
28 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

This is a completely different rock song man... Amazing solos and damn you can't stop hearing dis track... Heavy, heavier heaviest!

I consider this metal but one of the best rock songs if it is - EliHbk

29 How You Remind Me - Nickelback

It's good yeah yeah yeah but I can understand why people say no no because mainly the only good part of this 2 minute song is the chorus. Apart from that all Kroeger basically says is yeah x3 no x2

What is this wonderful song doing down here?!

This is one of the greatest rock songs!

Couldn't make it as a wise man, couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing... - Songsta41

30 Killing Loneliness - Him
31 Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park

Awesome song.

32 Papercut - Linkin Park
33 Teenagers - My Chemical Romance

I still wonder how people can deny the strong meaning of this song! The lyrics describe so much how popular and rich nowdays teenagers act towards other. A lot of teen can relate to this song about being a kind of 'rejected' cause you're not as mean and rude as some people are in the society today

34 Uprising - Muse
35 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold

Absolutely the best song out there. Amazing solo by the one and only Synyster Gates.

36 Jade - X Japan
37 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

This song is amongst the best metal songs. And surely deserves to be on the list of best modern rock songs.

This song should be on 1st rank..
It is the BEST..
Wonderful Lyrics..
Beautifully Published..
And I love this song.. !
