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 is - 8 million copies just 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.

And who is the troll who votes Linkin Park for every list? Linkin 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 Linkin 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 Linkin Park. And by the way, Linkin Park sucks.

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

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 songs in regards to nostalgia!

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, 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 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.

10 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

The Newcomers

? Bodysnatchers - Radiohead
? Forsaken - Dream Theatre
The Contenders
11 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

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

12 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.

13 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.

14 Decode - Paramore

The only good thing about Twilight! Sigh.

15 Second Chance - Shinedown
16 Rock And Roll Train - AC/DC
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 Love in This Club - Usher
20 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback

Was this great song not on the list?

Amazing riff and vocals.

21 Heartless - Kanye West

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

22 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 amazing song of 2008, after All Nightmare Long.

This is arguably Slipknot's greatest track ever.

23 Natasha - Pig Destroyer
24 Just Dance - Lady Gaga

This was the song that started it all!

25 The World We Live In - The Killers
