Top Ten Greatest Songs of 2008

The Top Ten
1 Viva La Vida - Coldplay

I am so pissed off 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 sold 8 million copies that year, producing the largest number of digital downloads of any record.

Viva la Vida is amazing, and shame on all of you for voting otherwise. Shame on you.

2 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
3 4 Minutes - Madonna
4 Take a Bow - Rihanna

I love this Rihanna song! Rihanna is one of the best singers with the best nostalgic songs!

5 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, and 30 Seconds to Mars... Total crap. For that reason, Metallica gets my vote, as well as being a badass song.

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

6 Given Up - Linkin Park

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

7 Lollipop - Lil' Wayne

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

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

8 Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park

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

9 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 create 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.

10 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

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

The Newcomers

? Day 'n' Nite - Kid Cudi
? Addicted - P.O.D.
The Contenders
11 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold
12 Disturbia - Rihanna

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

13 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!

14 Decode - Paramore

The only good thing about Twilight! Sigh.

15 Second Chance - Shinedown
16 Just Dance - Lady Gaga

This was the song that started it all!

17 Rock And Roll Train - AC/DC
18 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.

19 Touch My Body - Mariah Carey
20 Addicted - Saving Abel
21 Love in This Club - Usher
22 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback

Was this great song not on the list?

23 Psychosocial - Slipknot

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

Is this list real or fake? Come on, Psychosocial was the most amazing song of 2008 after All Nightmare Long.

This is arguably Slipknot's greatest track ever.

24 Heartless - Kanye West

Kanye has always been a solid musical artist. This is one of his finest.

25 From Head Unworthy - Rise Against
