Most Iconic Songs by Male Artists/Bands


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Juicy - Notorious B.I.G.

One of the three anthems for hip-hop, and arguably the best-sounding. It's lyrics are the archetypal started from the bottom lyrics, but it reflects Biggie's rise to fame perfectly. - SwagFlicks

22 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
23 Life on Mars? - David Bowie

When it comes to iconic, Bowie should always be on top! - Lotuscandy

24 Hound Dog - Elvis Presley
25 Again - Archive

They are often compared to Pink Floyd, in an Electronic version. This tune lasts 16:20 of pure amazingness (don't know if that's even a word), anyway, they are beyond words! - Lotuscandy

26 Bela Lugosi's Dead - Bauhaus V 1 Comment
27 What's Going On - Marvin Gaye

In what is probably the most well-known song from the soul genre, Marvin Gaye brings it all with the anti-violence theme, the amazing singing, and the jazzy instrumentation. - SwagFlicks

28 Changes - 2pac

One of the three anthems for hip-hop, this is arguably the most important, yet the least popular out of the three. And can you really argue, why with it's lyrics aiming for equality between the races? - SwagFlicks

29 Baby - Justin Bieber

Lol, what is this stupid song of meaningless crap doing here?

This song is iconic, albeit in a different (and undeserved) way. - WonkeyDude98

30 American Idiot - Green Day

Green Day was popular before American Idiot came out (2004). - peaceswagtv

31 Perfect Day - Lou Reed

The song you shouldn't listen to when your heart is broken, but you do anyway, ending in tears... and hit repeat, because it wasn't enough, strange how it's sometimes good to wallow in self-pity! - Lotuscandy

32 Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
33 Stay (Faraway, So Close!) - U2
34 I Am the Resurrection - The Stone Roses
35 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden
36 Paranoid Android

Best song by one of the best bands.

37 Midlife Crisis - Faith No More V 1 Comment
38 Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
39 The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
40 Black Dahlia
