Best Rock or Alternative 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 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

This band is awesome is awesome, this song is awesome (even though I prefer So Cold and Breath). Ya know, Chevelle is a PRETTY DAMN GOOD BANDA with no songs on this list. They've had five songs in the top 10 on the charts

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!

The kind of song comes only once in a life time...

4 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.


5 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?

This is by far the best song on the list.

6 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.

One of the best no only Green Day songs
One of the best ever. But jesus of suburbia is even better

7 Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park
8 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

YES! I'm so glad it's up so high. Best song of the 00's. Maybe tied with "a certain romance" by arctic monkeys

Best song the world could ever have heard billie joe has the most orgasmic voice along with mike dirnt and tre cools just awesome!

This song is epic on so many levels!

Should be in top five

9 Numb - Linkin Park

It manipulates your ears and all your scenes, this famous song reached every radio station and every chart, and this chart is one of them!

This is the best song I have ever heard
How can this song be on number. 7 it deserves the top position
Each one should hear this song at least once in their lifetime
It just gives calmness to your ear!

This should be 2 after in the end

Numb Is A Best Alternative Rock

10 Pain - Three Days Grace

The best rock song you can ever hear...
The lyrics, the music, the epic shout... Everything is just amazing in this song.

It's very easy to get addicted to this song once you hear it! - DJZeezo

A song loved by rock and non-rock fans...
It fills your musical needs and fantasies.
This song should be on the top 5! - ricolopez

This one is great for basically anytime you're upset at all.

The best song ever!

The Contenders

11 The Pretender - Foo Fighters

This is one of the greatest songs ever by one of the greatest rock bands ever. The talent, combined with the amazing songs and brains of Dave Grohl make for something really special. The Pretender is near perfection.

Should be much higher than 10... seriously? Dave Grohl is the man

Best guitar and lyrics

Foo Fighters are alterntive musical genius. this band shaped alternative more than any other on this list! 6 is weak.. bang it up

12 The Middle - Jimmy Eat World

25 Headstrong - Trapt

29 Rollin - Limp Bizkit
30 Immortal - Adema
31 Metalingus - Alter Bridge
32 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

How is this one not in the top 5? It's one of the greatest and most important songs of the 00's.

This is one of the most influential, iconic songs of all time! How is it not number 1?!

Deserves a higher ranking

33 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down
34 The Last Fight - Bullet for My Valentine
35 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin
36 Beautiful Day - U2

I don't actually like U2, but I really love this song.
U2 have earned many GRAMMY awards for great songs like this.

Even if you're not a fan of U2 you must hear this song!

I hope they always make song like this one, it's really amazing!

37 Hero - Skillet

Wow, how is this song not higher!

38 Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi
39 No One Knows - Queens of the Stone Age
40 American Idiot - Green Day
41 Hurricane - 30 Seconds to Mars
42 Time for Heroes - The Libertines

I love The Libertines. Although they only made 2 albums, I love their sound and Pete's voice and Carl and yum they're awesome.

This is real rock, not that 30 seconds rubbish.

43 Hysteria - Muse

Why is this song so underrated? When I first heard it, I was like "OMG did I just went to heaven?! " AMAZING bassline, guitar, drums, voice and lyrics, by an amazing band =)

When I first heard the baseline I was already blown away. Perfect mix between classic and rock.

44 Downfall - Trust Company
45 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

I guess this is alternative... but it is my favorite song. - moose4life19

46 All My Life - Foo Fighters

"All my life I've been searching for something something never comes never leads to nothing nothing satisfys but I'm getting close closer to the prize at the end or the road - JonasStartsARiot

47 Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers
48 Best of You - Foo Fighters

Simply spectacular. Awesome lyrics. The guitar, the drums, the vocals, all are great. This song will be heard for decades, because a song like this an never die

I would totally vote the kill since I love 30 Seconds to Mars but I also adore foo fighters and this song I can never forward and the kill I've listened too much times

Again should be much higher

49 Decode - Paramore

This song is just amazing it should be in the top ten The only thing truelly wrong with it is where it came from

50 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

Great Song, Would buy again.
