Top 10 Most Meaningful Modern Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Pretender - Foo Fighters
22 Knives and Pens - Black Veil Brides

This song is about fighting as an outcast. As an outcast you don't have a lot to do about bullying since you are just an outcast. But outcasts are full with the best ideas. They always show respect for other because they know how it is to not be respected.

This song on the outside is 'just another bvb song' but no, it's deeper and sends a great message.

This Song Is About Rebellion, And To Do What You Think Is Right...
Truly Inspirational...

23 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

This song came out in 1997.

Its all metaphor about trying to find your place in person love. The diary is their life and your trying to find the truth

25 Hero of War - Rise Against

This song is so well written and beautiful. It really makes you think about what it means to be a soldier. The music video along with the powerful lyrics and expressive vocals make this song so beautiful and so meaningful. I'd definitely recommend it.

The most meaningful of their songs. Huge Rise Against Songs. Fourth best song of theirs to Savior, Injection, and The Good Left Undone. Especially in their niche, they pack so much meaning and passion in the song.
