Top Ten Greatest Songs of 2008

The Top Ten
1 Viva La Vida - Coldplay

Besides Yellow, this is the only Coldplay song I actually like. I'm only voting this because everything else is terrible, except A Beautiful Lie, although I'd argue The Kill is better.

I am so pissed of at the voters. this is an instant classic and one of the greatest songs of the modern era. number 24? This has got to be the best selling song of 2008 as well (the album is - 8 million copies just that year producing the largest number of digital downloads of any record). Viva la Vida is amazing and shame of all of you for voting otherwise. shame on you.
And who is the troll who votes linking park for every list. linking park sucks. this list shows that the new generation of people have TERRIBLE taste in music. I'll give anyone here a dollar if anyone who voted for given up by linking park ( by the way I have never heard of that song in my life) could tell me what artist produced the dark side of the moon. probably no one knows because they are stuck listening to linking park. and by the way, likin park sucks.

Seriously, this song even won Grammy and it is at 24... Rihanna and Katy Perry type overrated singers are at the top. 21st century people doesn't have the taste of music at all!

Viva La Vida was the best selling album worldwithe of 2008 with 6.8 million copies sold, this song with the same title contributed greatly to this No.

2 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
3 Given Up - Linkin Park

It's not a single, but it have a powerful scream that will pound all the songs around here!

4 The Day that Never Comes - Metallica

What the day that never comes has more emotion and takes more talent than every piece of dirt in the top ten combined... Metallica STILL RULES!

Jennifer lopez, rihanna, Lil Wayne, 30 secs to mars... Total crap. For that reason Metallica gets my vote. As well being a badass song.

Uh, this is THE BEST song of 2008. So much better than the rest of the songs on this list.

Get those auto tuners and loopers out of top 10 and put Metallica in it.

5 4 Minutes - Madonna
6 Take a Bow - Rihanna

I love this Rihanna song! Rihanna is one of the best singers with the best songs in regards of nostalgia!

7 Nine in the Afternoon - Panic at the Disco

This is a really sweet song. I love how Panic! at the Disco can switch up their style and come away with good sounding music.

Not even the best P!ATD track from that album. But it's still cute enough to earn my vote.

This is a little bit different from Panic.

8 Psychosocial - Slipknot

Come on! Where are the Slipknot stans at?
If you could vote like nuts for Solway Firth and Unsainted for 2019, why is Psychosocial only at 12 here?

Is this list real or big fake. come on Psychosocial was the most amzing song of 2008 after All nightmare long.

This is arguably Slipknot's greatest track ever.

9 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

This is my favorite song of hers, and my favorite song ever!

10 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

The Newcomers

? Tiffany Blews - Fall Out Boy
? Scream Aim Fire - Bullet for My Valentine
The Contenders
11 Lollipop - Lil' Wayne

I usually don't like this mainstream stuff but I admit I love this song. It the "Thriller" of the 21st century

I miss the old Lil Wayne.
At least he had decent comeback in 2018.

12 Rock And Roll Train - AC/DC
13 All Nightmare Long - Metallica

Woah! How is the horrible "song" Lollipop above this?

The fact that a Katy Perry song is above one of Metallica's best songs is just sad

14 Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park

This is the best song compared to others on the list!

15 Decode - Paramore

The only good thing about Twilight! Sigh

16 Hot N Cold - Katy Perry

There are only a handful of Katy Perry songs that I actively enjoy, and this is one of them.

This is one of my favorites from Katy!

I love this song by Katy Perry.

This should be #1

17 Stop and Stare - OneRepublic

OneRepublic before Apologize. Still had great music.

My favorite band ever, (P!ATD is a close second) and this song is gorgeous.

18 Touch My Body - Mariah Carey
19 Disturbia - Rihanna

Am I the only one who notices that when Rihanna says "Disturbia" in the chorus, it sounds like she's saying DUSTURBILA?

This song is awesome

20 Love in This Club - Usher
21 Indestructible - Disturbed

Very powerful song.

22 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback

Was this great song not on the list?

Amazing riff and vocals.

23 All Summer Long - Kid Rock
24 Inside the Fire - Disturbed
25 I Don’t Care - Fall Out Boy

I can't believe this song wasn't on this list. It's such a good song by Fall Out Boy and it's one of their most underrated at that.
