Best Rock or Alternate Songs of the '00s

You won't find any My chemical romance, fall out boy or Panic!!!!!!! at the disco here, but you will find QOTSA, foo fighters, and songs about believing in love.

The Top Ten

1 The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars

This song is such a killer. Signature of rock music and this music runs into my blood. This song is like a black hole and everyone gets pulled to it not knowing what exactly it is. I think 39% is some human mistake it should be 93%.

If you're asking me how is this song, I'll suggest you to listen this song right now...

My favorite alternative song on this list... My favorite 30 Seconds to Mars song, besides Closer to the Edge. But, if My Chemical Romance, FOB, and/or P! AtD was included, they would have a top song...

2 In the End - Linkin Park

This should at least be Number One. At least! Much better than seven nation army. - EternalDamnation

Lp is the best in history, and this is their best song

Please Stop this nonsense!..
In The End is the best rock song ever!..
It has got a new genre!.. By The Great Linkin Park!..
It has Metal, Rap and Sung Collaboration!..
Please do Listen to it.. You will be compelled to vote for it!..

A great song from an even greater band

3 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

This song should be number 1. It's the song that made Evanescence popular. That made their album the 6th most sold album in the last 10 years. It's the song that has made it possible for the band to win grammys. This song is amazing and so is 'Fallen' & Evanescence. No wonder why it's one of 8 albums that has stayed in the Billboard chart for over a year. I love this band.

Dude, THIS IS ONLY NUMBER 4? Have you been living under a rock? (No pun intended) All I'm going to say is that Evanescence is better than Linkin Park and 30 Seconds to Mars. Good day sir.

4 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

This is my favourite green day song. It has everything it has emotion, a catchy chorus, and awesome music. This should be higher, but as long as its on this list I'm happy

Surprised that this song is way down here and jesus of suburbia is up there

One of the best of all time, better than JOS.
I'm really amazed how 2 Green Day songs are on this list.

5 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes

This song defined rock of the 00s in my opinion. - Bman23

This is the song that 'got me into music'. Elephant is a great album

This is definitely better than the kill and in the end. Why is it not at number 1?

Simply the best

7 Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

Hugely underrated
This song should be in the top 5.
Breaking Benjamin is the best alternative bands in the history..

Breaking Benjamin is such an under rated band, especially in the UK! Ben Burleys voice is amazing and Diary of Jane is such a beautiful piece of music, the acoustic is just mind blowingly beautiful!
