Top 10 Pop Rock Songs

This list is made of 10 best pop rock songs that deserve to be preserved.

The Top Ten

1 Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

This band was noticed worldwide after their single Iris, which was truelly one of the best songs in 2012. It was aired in almost every country and is still one of those songs that people can't tell the artists, but everybody knows this one.

This song was made in 1998, not 2012, and is not necessarily pop rock. Iris is acoustic rock, but is very popular (why its called pop) - mr_crossover27

Best pop rock song ever! - zxm

2 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

So Dramatic! I like the violins. Chris Martins voice fits perfectly.

3 Hey, Soul Sister - Train

I love this band.

Patrick Monahan has one of the clearest and highest vocals in this decade which makes all Train music unique. This song has been nominated for grammys and is one of the first mainstream songs that combined almost all possible genres in it.

4 She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5

Best maroon 5 song with this love, too bad Adam had to go and ruin it all, the rest of maroon still get my respect and are still a rock band

5 Livin on a Prayer - Bon Jovi
6 Bleeding Out - Imagine Dragons
7 Unwell - Matchbox Twenty
8 Complicated - Avril Lavigne


Oh yeah!

9 Hunting for You - Robbie Williams

A good rock album

He is an icon and a legend

10 Animals - Maroon 5

I love this song

The Contenders

11 She Looks So Perfect - 5 Seconds of Summer V 1 Comment
12 Good Life - Onerepublic

Kick back to the sound of a good life in 2011. This song has a great whistle hook that is catchy and fun. Really nice song. Please vote!

There are SO MANY GOOD SONGS ON THIS LIST, but this is just WAY too low. I LOVE this song. It's catchy and has positive lyrics.

13 Superheroes - The Script

So col when I listen to it I fell singing

14 Counting Stars - Onerepublic

This is the song that got me hooked to OneRepublic and it is so iconic I just think that it is one which everyone will love because it's, unique and it has a mix of genres combined into one song- absolutely LOVE IT! :D

OneRepublic are one of the best pop rock bands. Why don't they have anything in the top ten on this list? Their songs are simply amazing!

This is the only song which I would often hum in my mind

15 Demons - Imagine Dragons

It's awesome..
It deserves spot in the top ten

16 Maps - Maroon 5
17 Secrets - Onerepublic

This should be #1. Best pop rock band, best pop rock song. ONE REPUBLIC - SECRETS!

18 Here I Am - Bryan Adams

Bryan Adams is one those musicians that beated the time test. Once he was up, he stayed up. Here I Am was awarded for best original song and it was one of the best songs in 2002.

19 You're Beautiful - James Blunt

There are a lot of James Blunt haters, but we can't deny that his music is really truelly a fine addition to nowadays music scene. And this song is one of his best works.

20 Breakeven - The Script

Script is a great band and I can't imagine it writing a bad song. Breakeven is very similar to the single Man Who Can't be moved, but it's slightly more complete from musical aspect.
