Top 10 Modern Rock Songs that Prove Rock Music Isn't Dead

It's annoying that people consider Rock music to be dead. It's not dead and here's a few modern Rock songs that prove that Rock music isn't dead. Also modern being from 2000s and onwards. Like always if I missed one feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 Count Me Out - Seether

Yes this song does rock, but it rocks in more of a nu-metal kind of way so it counts about as much as some harder indie music you could find out there. Still good though.

This song is probably the best example of how the genre isn't dead at all. - SomePersonYouHate

Rock may not be dead, but classic rock is.

2 Break a Guitar - Ty Segall
3 In the End - Linkin Park

"Modern" - IronSabbathPriest

4 The Sky is a Neighborhood - Foo Fighters

Kind of repetitive but again a song that proves the genre is still alive. - SomePersonYouHate

5 Custer - Slipknot

Aggressive and has lots of Rock elements to keep the genre alive. - SomePersonYouHate


6 Guilty All the Same - Linkin Park

Has lots of Rock music elements and a solid message overall generally proves that Rock's still alive as a genre. - SomePersonYouHate

I cannot vote two songs at same time - prasadkumawat

7 My Name is Human - Highly Suspect
8 Jenny - Nothing More
9 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day
10 Black is the Soul - Korn Black is the Soul - Korn

I also believe that this song debunks that annoying statement. - SomePersonYouHate

14 Red Cold River - Breaking Benjamin

Like other songs on this list proves that the genre ISN'T dead. - SomePersonYouHate

Best Breaking Benjamin song.

15 Psychosocial - Slipknot
16 Run - Foo Fighters

Has the agressiveness that Rock music is known for and it's done well one of the major songs that proves the genre isn't dead. - SomePersonYouHate

21 That's What You Get - Paramore
22 Feed the Wolf - Breaking Benjamin

25 Song #3 - Stone Sour
26 The Promise - Chris Cornell

Duh - DCfnaf

27 The Day that Never Comes - Metallica

No way, this song is terrible. This whole album was

There's a demon inside!
Just like jekyll and hyde! - Skullkid755

30 Feed the Machine - Nickelback

Aggressive and generally in my opinion proves that Rock music is FAR from dead. - SomePersonYouHate

I’m not a huge Nickelback fan, but this song is better than pretty much all of their songs. The lyrics are just a bunch of conspiracy theory BS, but the instrumentation is delightfully heavy for Nickelback.

How is this a conspiracy theory they're just saying the government is too powerful. I think. - Skullkid755

31 The Stage - Avenged Sevenfold

One of my favorite a7x songs - Skullkid755

Not all of the songs and you're acting like it's such a big offense. - SomePersonYouHate

48 I Apologize - Five Finger Death Punch
