Greatest Rock Songs of the 21st Century


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

22 Headstrong - Trapt

Come on! This song deserves to be higher up! Like, no. 5 or higher!

23 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian
24 Jade - X Japan
25 Evil Angel - Breaking Benjamin
26 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!

27 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!

28 Killing Loneliness - Him
29 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
30 Last Nite - The Strokes

Fantastic song it defines the decade and generation and shows the 2000s had some of the best music ever.

(em português - Brasil) A melhor de todas.

31 Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park

Awesome song.

32 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold

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

33 Papercut - Linkin Park
34 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

37 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

38 Use Somebody - Kings of Leon
39 Smooth Criminal - Alien Ant Farm
40 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold V 2 Comments
