Top Ten Greatest Songs of 2008


The Top Ten

1 Viva La Vida - Coldplay

This song is awesome. - PatrickStar3

Easily number 1. Listen to it and you will know to vote for it above all others.

Just beautiful. Never even heard of A Beautiful Lie

I am so pissed of at the voters. this is an instant classic and one of the greatest songs of the modern era. number 24? This has got to be the best selling song of 2008 as well (the album is - 8 million copies just that year producing the largest number of digital downloads of any record). Viva la Vida is amazing and shame of all of you for voting otherwise. shame on you.
And who is the troll who votes linking park for every list. linking park sucks. this list shows that the new generation of people have TERRIBLE taste in music. I'll give anyone here a dollar if anyone who voted for given up by linking park ( by the way I have never heard of that song in my life) could tell me what artist produced the dark side of the moon. probably no one knows because they are stuck listening to linking park. and by the way, likin park sucks.

3 4 Minutes - Madonna
4 Given Up - Linkin Park

5 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

I like Coldplay, paramore, Linkin Park and 30 seconds to mars, but this is THE BEST SONG THAN I HEAR IN MY WHOLE LIFE

6 The Day that Never Comes - Metallica

Uh, this is THE BEST song of 2008. So much better than the rest of the songs on this list. - PhoenixAura81

Jennifer lopez, rihanna, Lil Wayne, 30 secs to mars... Total crap. For that reason Metallica gets my vote. As well being a badass song.

Death magnetic was there comeback album from st anger and this song is the reason why this album is so great

What the day that never comes has more emotion and takes more talent than every piece of dirt in the top ten combined... Metallica STILL RULES!
