Top 10 Songs of the 21st Century that Should Be on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time but Aren'tShould include songs that have had exceptional critical reception and have some sort of significance. They should not only be songs you just happen to like.
Adele, while still young and relatively new, is on the best way on becoming a legendary singer, and her albums and songs receive praise from both critics and audience. She is popular with both teens and adults, and she is all about the music, not her image. Since RITD is her signature song, it should be on the list.
Its just criminal... How could you forget such an amazing gem like this?
This should be on, but it isn't a definite.
My Chemical Romance received exceptional reviews and became an essential part of the pop culture of the latter half of the 2000s. Welcome to the Black Parade is their signature song and received rave reviews.
PS: Considering they charted over here where this type of alternative rock was NOT associated with emo (instead, artists that had a certain manga style were, like early Tokio Hotel, Cinema Bizarre or LaFee), shows they are also a great band without the gimmick of being leading figures of a subculture.
Before voting, please listen to this song and you'll understand the greatness of it and why it should be #1.
I don't know about the US, but the song Back to Black got way more airplay than Rehab over here and became Winehouse's signature song. Rehab is on their list, and considering her impact on pop culture she needs to be on the list.
I love this song
How is this not in the top ten?
Considered one of his best songs and loved by many.
Should be top ten... Honestly, tool should dominate top ten. I'd also throw in some eagles.
I wouldn't doubt its quality, but I guess it wouldn't be iconic and successful enough considering what else is on the list. Outside of Metal circles, Blind Guardian isn't that well known.
This song left me in awe when I first heard it. To me it's the best and most impressive song by far.
Epic. This song is so cool.
Such a beautiful song.
I know that Rolling Stone has a huge misconception of Rammstein, but Rammstein are megastars in their home country, and when asked about who is the best German band, most Germans would answer either Rammstein or Die Ärzte, but it's only Rammstein that also made it big internationally. Also the lyrical quality of their songs is among the best. Sonne is their best known song of the 21st century, so it should be on the list.
A song from their first album. That's a surprise for me.
This song is sad and encourages people. Great work Calum.
The best song about being gay there is.
Lady Gaga is pretty much the definition of pop of the 2010s and late 2000s, and is acclaimed beyond compare. "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face" are both her signature songs, but Poker Face seems a bit unlikely because it was released at a time when Gaga wasn't yet taken as seriously as a musician as she is now.
Hell yeah. This is the best Lady Gaga song in my opinion.
I think rolling in the deep is should be added. But this song is on a different level.
