22 Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? - The Offspring Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? - The Offspring

Extremely powerful song, beautiful lyrics and only more amazing when you know the story behind it

Something that makes you think..

Wow... the story behind this song... extremely deep song, this should be higher up the list.

23 2 Become 1 - Spice Girls 2 Become 1 - Spice Girls
24 They Don't Care About Us - Michael Jackson They Don't Care About Us - Michael Jackson

This song just shows that no matter what they say (the government) they care for no-one. Don't trust politicians, and don't trust easily.

Such an inspiring song. Just goes to show that the illuminati and the government shouldn't be trusted

Tears and emotion. That's all I can say.

This is one song I'll never forget. This song holds such a deep message.

25 Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold

Last words written and sang by the man called Jimmy O�'Sullivan before he died. Respect

26 Numb - Linkin Park Numb - Linkin Park

This song perfectly encapsulates the feeling of not living up to other people's expectations and thinking you're not good enough. Personally, I've been pushed so hard and it always seems as if the dreams my parents have for me are their own. I want to pursue music and my parents want me to focus on academia. Listening to this song helps me realize that I'm not the only one who's gone through this and it gives me strength to do what I want for myself rather than what others want from me.

This song has described me perfectly over the years. "I'm becoming this/All I want to do/Is be more like me/And be less like you" (part of this song's chorus) It has suited me, and it hasn't changed.

What the Linkin Park's most famous song not in the list! It should be in the top ten list..

This is a message to teens in relationships and teens in general. It is truly a beautiful piece.

27 Clocks - Coldplay Clocks - Coldplay

A beautiful song with lyrics that are more than skin deep... With hidden meanings and a melody that is hauntingly beautiful, this song should be higher up on the list

Mesmerizing, beautiful piece of artwork

28 Into the Sky - Black Tide Into the Sky - Black Tide
29 A Match Into Water - Pierce the Veil A Match Into Water - Pierce the Veil

This song is actually about Vic Fuentes' ex girlfriend but a lot of people love the first few sentences. It talks about scars on someone's skin. Now this could be seen as from after a operation or from self harm. Vic anyways shows that you are still beautiful and he doesn't want to loose you.

This truly is such a beautiful song, it has helped me so much when I'm feeling unimaginably depressed, the artists have put so much feeling and honesty into this song along with every other song they have made Pierce The Veil has honeslty helped me through so much.

Amazing song, the lyrics are so pure and raw. There's no sugar coating, excellent musicians.

I always cry when listening to this

30 Swing Life Away - Rise Against Swing Life Away - Rise Against

This song has helped me through times in my life where I felt worthless and like continuing day by day was pointless. I mean, you're born, you go to school to get a job, you get a job to pay for retirement, you spend a decade doing stuff you should have done when you were younger and then you die. You get buried and then digested by worms and fungus. It all seemed hopeless. Then I heard this and it made me feel stronger. It pushed me through the block in my life and should definitely be in the top 10.

31 Open Fields of Grace - Jackie Evancho Open Fields of Grace - Jackie Evancho V 1 Comment
32 Don't You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds Don't You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds
33 Can You Feel My Heart - Bring Me the Horizon Can You Feel My Heart - Bring Me the Horizon

This song is very touching and Bring me the horizon is just an amazing band all together. It's definitely worth listening to.

This song is about admitting you have a problem. Admitting something's wrong. Oliver Sykes, the lead singer, had to admit that he had a problem with drugs. Some teens have to admit this too and some have to admit they have a mental problem. That is why this song is meaningfull.

The part with, "I'm scared to get close, and I hate being alone" just makes me want to cry.

Deep meaning behind the song, honestly a great song that can save lives.

34 Time - Pink Floyd Time - Pink Floyd

And then the one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun
And you run and you run
To catch up with the sun
But it's sinking
Racing around
To come up behind you again
The sun is the same
In a relative way
But you're older
Shorter of breath
And one day closer to death
Extraordinary Lyrics, time passes us by and we don't even notice it

This song always makes me cry! The lyrics are so mesmerizing, that sometimes I reflect upon myself and think of all the time I wasted in my life. Guitar solo also rocks!

This is an extraordinary song by an extraordinary group. Hey You is also a very very meaningful song too. - fireinside96

I can't believe this song is so low down on this list, brilliant lyrics, brilliant guitar solo, brilliant band

35 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

The definition of a classic, beautiful and meaningful song

36 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem

Lyrically amazing, Eminem doesn't waste time and says exactly what he wants to say. His lyrics talk about how hard his life back in Detroit was and how he has one shot to live a better life

This song has gotten me through my hardest times. Eminem definitely knows how to bring the tears out of me in the realest way possible.

Very deep meaning to the song. The words just hits me straight in the heart and mind. Singing about how you have a chance to make things right.

Top 10. Can be considerer an american anthem due to the amount of usage in the sporting industry and what does america lead in. Athletics!

37 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

I love this song as much as the next guy, but it is completely meaningless. Freddie Mercury himself has said multiple times he made the lyrics up. - TheStargazer
