Top Ten Most Overused Song Titles In Rock Music

Every song has a story to tell, and most song titles do a great job of helping you to predict the story of the song. However, some titles just make you wish people would stop using them! Here is a list of some of those titles!

The Top Ten

1 So Far Away

Chances are, if you listen to music at all, you've heard of at least 2 songs with this title. In the rock world, Avenged Sevenfold, Red, and Stabbing Westward have all had songs bearing this title. - AngryByrd

The great singer-songwriter Carole King also had a song with this title.

2 In the End

When you hear this title, you probably think of Linkin Park's single from their first album. Or you may think about the well known Black Veil Brides song. While these two songs are easily the most popular songs with this title, many bands have made songs with this title. - AngryByrd

"This is the end, beautiful friend. This is the end, my only friend, the end."

One of the most chilling pieces of music ever recorded. - PetSounds

Everyone misses the fact that the best song called "In The End" ever written is the one by Australia Rock Band "The Living End"

The Doors had a song with the title "The End" that still can't be played on the radio 48 years later.

3 Home

This title was most famously used by rocker Chris Daughtry and post-grunge giants Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace. - AngryByrd

Pretty popular title. I think Dream Theater's Home is the best song with that title. - IronSabbathPriest

4 Lost

Red, Avenged Sevenfold, and Stabbing Westward also have this cliche title in common, which is not surprising. This title is one of the most overused titles in not only the rock genre, but music as a whole. - AngryByrd

My favorite "Lost" song would have to be from Death Angel.

Lol even Coldplay used this song title

5 Breakdown

Relient K wrote a song called Breakdown about the lead singer's car breaking down. Pure masterpiece. - RiverClanRocks

6 Down

Stone Temple Pilots, Socialburn, Fuel, Motograter, 311, Static-X, Pearl Jam, Blink-182, Gravity Kills, and many more. - NuMetalManiak

7 Destruction
8 Numb

Linkin Park, I'm beginning to notice a trend here. - AngryByrd

9 Hit the Floor

While it may be hard to notice, this agressive title has graced the catalogs of bands like Linkin Park, Thousand Foot Krutch, and Bullet For My Valentine. Due to the rough nature of the title, it's easy to see how this title got so popular with hard rockers. - AngryByrd

Think about it - from Skillet, to Meg & Dia, this title certainly is a popular one.

Both Papa Roach and Kamelot used it, as well as loads of non-rock (read as: inferior) artists.
