Top Ten Greatest Songs of 2008

The Top Ten
1 Viva La Vida - Coldplay Viva La Vida - Coldplay Cover Art

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.

Seriously, this song even won Grammy and it is at 24... Rihanna and Katy Perry type overrated singers are at the top. 21st century people doesn't have the taste of music at all!

Viva La Vida was the best selling album worldwithe of 2008 with 6.8 million copies sold, this song with the same title contributed greatly to this No.

35!? This is not just the best song of 2008: it's the best song ever created by human being!

2 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars Cover Art

I've never even heard of this song in my life

Kiranjais6 be my buddy at Facebook

3 4 Minutes - Madonna 4 Minutes - Madonna Cover Art
4 Given Up - Linkin Park Given Up - Linkin Park Cover Art

It's not a single, but it have a powerful scream that will pound all the songs around here!

It is a single -_-

Bye bye bitches! LP for a life! Keep rock&metal alive people!

5 The Day that Never Comes - Metallica The Day that Never Comes - Metallica Cover Art

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!

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

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

Why anyone would vote for anything other than this is beyond me.

6 Take a Bow - Rihanna Take a Bow - Rihanna Cover Art

I love this Rihanna song! Rihanna is one of the best singers with the best songs in regards of nostalgia!

very sweet song with catchy beats

7 Nine in the Afternoon - Panic at the Disco Nine in the Afternoon - Panic at the Disco Cover Art

This is a really sweet song. I love how Panic! at the Disco can switch up their style and come away with good sounding music.

This is a little bit different from Panic.

Not even the best P!ATD track from that album. But it's still cute enough to earn my vote.

This is such a great song

8 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

Oje of the greatest songs in metal history

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

9 Decode - Paramore Decode - Paramore Cover Art

The only good thing about Twilight! Sigh

10 Lollipop - Lil' Wayne Lollipop - Lil' Wayne Cover Art

RIP Static Major, you will be known for putting together one of the best hooks in the decade.

Shawty wanna thug
Bottles in the club
Shawty wanna hump
You know I like to touch
Your lovely lady lumps

I usually don't like this mainstream stuff but I admit I love this song. It the "Thriller" of the 21st century

I miss the old Lil Wayne.
At least he had decent comeback in 2018.

This song is the best of weezy

The Contenders
11 Hot N Cold - Katy Perry Hot N Cold - Katy Perry Cover Art

There are only a handful of Katy Perry songs that I actively enjoy, and this is one of them.

This is one of my favorites from Katy!

I love this song by Katy Perry.

This should be #1

12 Psychosocial - Slipknot Psychosocial - Slipknot Cover Art

Come on! Where are the Slipknot stans at?
If you could vote like nuts for Solway Firth and Unsainted for 2019, why is Psychosocial only at 12 here?

Is this list real or big fake. come on Psychosocial was the most amzing song of 2008 after All nightmare long.

This is arguably Slipknot's greatest track ever.

13 All Nightmare Long - Metallica All Nightmare Long - Metallica Cover Art

The fact that a Katy Perry song is above one of Metallica's best songs is just sad

14 Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park Cover Art

This is the best song compared to others on the list!

15 Poker Face - Lady Gaga Poker Face - Lady Gaga Cover Art
