The Contenders: Page 2

21 Freewill - Rush Freewill - Rush
22 Juke Box Hero - Foreigner Juke Box Hero - Foreigner

Hard to top Don't Stop Believin but how is this not in the top 10? Every time I hear this song I feel like I can do pretty much anything. Just one guitar...

From nothing to a big star. This song really inspires you to action.

23 Come Sail Away - Styx Come Sail Away - Styx

This song is rumored to be about being abducted by aliens, I personally like to think of it as a song about adventures and dreams. What's more inspirational than adventures and dreams (or being abducted by aliens)?

It starts out very mellow and POW... it becomes a power ballad. absolutely love it. - fireinside96

24 You're the Best - Joe Esposito

This song makes you feel like... the best! Surprise, surprise. But seriously, this song says it straight: Don't take any crap from anyone or anything, because you're the best... AROUND!

25 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

It's not too late.
It's never too late.

In this world people, where people always go on telling you it is too late, this song in the corner of your heart gives the hope that no, it's not too late. It's never too late. Should be among top 10.

It's never too late to rise above the demons that bring you down.

31 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine
32 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

This song isn't inspirational in the way a lot of people think of it where its like a "lose yourself" song but more in the way that life is to short to put things aside for the future

Rest in Peace Jimmy

33 Hall of Fame - The Script Hall of Fame - The Script
34 Best Days - Graham Colton Best Days - Graham Colton

There are many other songs which seems prtty better than this one but yeah... I think this song deserves to be between the first 20 in this list... The lyrics is just beautiful and it's a really beautiful song... Last year's graduation batch of my school performed it and I myself felt very inspired so I tell you this song is just amazing... As the lyrics
"Don't wait for someone to tell you it's too late
'Cause these are the best day
There always something tomorrow so I say
Let's make the best of tonight
Here's comes the rest of our lives... "
The chorus of the song almost made me cry... It's very beautiful and I must say Graham Colton's did a great job...

Great song it! Graham Colton's best...

Love this song :) the chorus is inspirational...
Graham Colton is very talented :D

35 Saviour - Black Veil Brides Saviour - Black Veil Brides

Saviour, this is the song that being me to Black Veil Brides.
About six months before I was put off when I first checked them out, but I checked them out again, and ever since Saviour, I just am complexly hooked! Saviour is just such a meaningful and inspirational song beautifully sung. And the screaming at the end makes it just so so much more powerful

This song is just perfect! Makes me cry every time. BVB Army Forever!
