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 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

2 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

3 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.

4 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

There was this one band that was famous a long time ago, and who had an ending line in a song titled "The End":
"And in the end,
The love you take,
Is equal to the love,
You make".

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