Best Modern Rock Love Songs

The Top Ten
1 Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

"Dear god the only thing I ask of you
Is to hold her when I'm not around, when I'm much too far away... "
Listen to this... It's beautiful... A7x a7x...!

This song is actually me and my boyfriend's "song" that reminds us of each other the most. It was probably the first song he had me listen to when we got together...

This is one of the best modern songs I've heard...being a rock vocalist it's one of the songs I'd like performing on stage

Proud to see that the top3 are all from A7X
They're seriously awesome m/ who's with me?

2 Snuff - Slipknot Snuff - Slipknot Cover Art

the greatest love song... its about broken heart feelings...! awsomw band awesome vocals totaly superb song.. everybody should listned to this...

Bury all your secrets in my skin.
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins.
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.

Deliver me into my Fate -
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago,
If I can change I hope I never know.

Most people associate love songs to stories about how beautiful love is, and how amazing it is to be in love. This shows the other side of love. The side that lays at the bottom, and comes out when things go wrong.
As Corey sings, "You didn't hate enough to love". And it is true; at the heart of love, there is part hate.

Slipknot has the talent to be hardcore badasses but when it comes down to it, their slow songs are enough to make someone cry. Snuff is by far one of their best songs. Corey has extreme talent for the softer side. Snuff deserves to be at number 1.

Absolutely fantastic song and bittersweet voice. When you are down, just listen to this. It can't really heal your broken heart but it sure helps a lot. Thank you Corey for this.

3 Warmness on the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold Warmness on the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

The previous two A7X songs on here are amazing songs but they are more about heart break than about love. This one hits it right on the head. Every verse had me thinking of the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Avenged Sevenfold is my favorite band. I absolutely love them and every single song they have. This song is truely great and I plan on playing it at my wedding

Dear God or this should be number 1. So Far Away isn't really a love song but it is a wonderful slow song.

Love this song. I will be walking down the aisle at my wedding to this song

4 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

I like the song, but do you guys know what "modern" means? I think the 80's aren't.

I know it is not modern, but this song is my most favorite song ever!

Definitely the best rock n' roll love song of all times.

This song is just great

5 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

If you know the story behind Avenged Sevenfold and Jimmy Sullivan this song will be more profound, but really applies to anybody who's lost someone close to them. Accurate with the emotion and beautifully presented.

Seriously... one of the best A7X songs...I don't understand why they don't go for being a full time ROCK band...they do pretty well in this

Such a heartfelt song and makes you cry the last minute thirty with the emotions. Well done, guys!

Contrary to popular belief Syn actually wrote this for his grandma who passed away but when the Rev died the fans took this song to heart because the lyrics fit so well, and now it's seen as being for him, hence the video

6 Without You - Hinder Without You - Hinder Cover Art

This song is not exactly a love song. Don't get me wrong it's a great song but it is not about loving someone. It's about how you break up them and you realize that you're better off without them. "It's safe to say that I'm ready to let you leave" don't think a girl would take kindly to that.

This deserves to be at least in the top five wonderful song... Amazing lyrics... Awesome guitar... Full of emotion and feeling.. This song makes me fell strong against my love

Personally lips of an angel, but this is great as well!

As long as this or lips of an angel makes it.

7 Broken - Seether Broken - Seether Cover Art

Just an all around great son. The contrast of Amy Lee and Shaun Morgan bring out so much meaning and what the song is about.

Yes, this is where it's at! Ultimate rock love song! It's too bad this list turned into an Avenged Sevenfold fan page.

To me.. one of the best rock love songs.. Amy's and Shaun's voice are so suitable together! And the lyrics are so awesome!

Shaun had Kurt's exciting voice. With this song, you can't find better.

8 No Matter What - Papa Roach No Matter What - Papa Roach Cover Art

Its just amazing, I have been looking for a GOOD love song for days now and finally I found this one and its just like what I wanted... The lyrics explain just what I feel for my loved one and that's just what I wanted all along...

Absolutely deserves to be first here. The most romantic lyrics I have heard in a long while. Most songs have a slight clue of boken hearts but this song is the complete opposite. It describes overcoming difficulties and believing you are finally getting ready to tie the knot... :) Songs like this are really rare nowadays

This will be the song that I will walk down the aisle to... I need you right here by my side, you're everything that I'm not in my life...

It's a simple, no frills-laces love song which most lovers can relate to. Plus, it's pumped with melodious adrenaline!

9 Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

What does this have to do with love?

This isn't about love

Not above love.

10 Thinking About You - Puddle of Mudd Thinking About You - Puddle of Mudd Cover Art

I honestly LOVE this song! Best from Puddle Of Mudd! I recommend it to anyone, even if you don't normally listen to rock!

LOVE THIS SONG. It's so sweet and makes me think of my boyfriend every time. <3 And Puddle of Mudd is one of my favorite bands ever, they're so good and I love all their songs!

LOVE IT! This song is my favorite love song. I love Puddle of Muddy. This song reminds me about my boyfriend and I can't help but smile <3 I love Wes's voice also

It's mine and my boyfriend's song, the amount of emotional that goes into the song is just immense, always manages to bring a tear to my eye

The Contenders
11 Through Glass - Stone Sour Through Glass - Stone Sour Cover Art

I was surprised to see it as a #15, but now that I see the competition, it should definitely be in the top 10. Unfortunately it seems that rock is taking a bad turn in these '10s...

I loved this song from the moment I first heard it and it's still on my play list. My son used to go to sleep if you sang it to him, not the normal lullabies!

This is not only a love song, but a masterpiece of reflecting ones self. Just close your eyes and try to feel what he describes. Plain awesome.

One of my favorite love songs. I'm actually looking on here to find love songs for a playlist for my boyfriend. he's going through tough times right now, and I just wanna make sure he knows I love the crap out of him.

12 Far Away - Nickelback Far Away - Nickelback Cover Art

This song is amazing and makes me cry every time I hear it. I makes me stop and think, thank you for this beauitful art of words, keep holding on and look after avril for me thanks you.! Xxx

The song is well done.. Instrumentally it is lovely and very correct with words. It is a beautiful song done in a very profession and beautifully done in every way..It really shows the talent of the band and its members.they have great musicians they showcase. The vocalist are heard at their best..

One the best songs from nickelback. This deserves to be at the top of the list. Listen to this guys!

This and broken by seether and so far away by staind isn't a love song for the record.

13 The Bleeding - Five Finger Death Punch The Bleeding - Five Finger Death Punch Cover Art
14 Your Guardian Angel - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Your Guardian Angel - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Cover Art

The first song that was "Our song" with the love of my life. The lyrics, "I will never let you fall. I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all. Even if saving you sends me to heaven. Because you're my true love my whole heart please don't throw that away... " is everything I feel about him. <3

Because you're my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
Because I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and
Please tell me you'll stay, stay

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be okay
Though my skies are turning gray

There really are no words you describe the feelings this song reminds me. There ain't no better love song than this one.

Dedicated this to the guy that I have feelings for. After he listened to it, he confessed his feelings towards me too.

The melody and the lyrics are so amazing.. Plus the way it was sang, makes it one of the best songs ever made.

15 Forever - Papa Roach Forever - Papa Roach Cover Art

Such an amazing song with so much meaning and so much depth!

16 Here Without You - Three Doors Down Here Without You - Three Doors Down Cover Art

I prefer Your Arms Feel Like Home but this is without a doubt the best modern rock love song ever released.

The best English love song I've ever heard in my whole life...
Every time evokes a feeling in my heart of deep and burried love

Love this song.. I think of my other half every time this song plays! Awesome.

Definitely prefer Landing in London, but an amazing love song.

17 Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

Wasn't expecting this here but I LOVE My Chemical Romance. This song is one of my favorites and deserves so much love.

I just really like My Chemical Romance and the way they sound...

I love My Chemical Romance. Never expected it here.

Just heartbreaking. Pure melancholy and sadness.

18 Never Be the Same - Red Never Be the Same - Red Cover Art
19 Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls Cover Art

Beautiful, Beautiful! I felt in love with this song, the music, the lyrics, It's a very good love song, I heard it a long time ago, and I still listen to it

Every time I hear this song, I think of my best friend and I being together. He knows me so well and hasn't judged me yet.

One of the best love songs of all time in my opinion. It describes what I feel when I'm in love exactly.

Just the best lovesong I've ever heard!

20 Lips of an Angel - Hinder Lips of an Angel - Hinder Cover Art

One of the best love songs made. In my interpritation of this song, its him with a new girl after they two broke up, but they still love each other. Despite what you other people think, this is a love song about two people who went their seprerate ways, thinking they were doing the right thing, but are now having second thoughts. Its not about cheating. Wherever you got that idea, only God knows. They are both now involved in a new relationship, and she calls him late at night because she regrets ever letting him go, but they don't want to end the relationship they are currently in. They both miss each others voices and being together. He never wants to completely let her leave his life, but she makes it so hard to stay faithful to the girl he is with now. This is a love song about regret and longing. Not cheating. Beautiful song about love.

I have this song on my phone all the time, I'm not one for love or believe in true love so I don't search for it but this song shows heartache and longing but honestly, if you want something in your reach leave for it, the song shows cheating too so that's probably why I like it.

I heard this song on the radio a couple of years ago and I fell in love with it instantly...even though I didn't even know the title. Thanks to this site we're reunited..*Hinder Rocks* you really need to hear this song

I need all metal fans here to take a step back and let there be a quality list that does not have a song like lips of an angel underrated like this.

21 In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge Cover Art

This is a song that may not generally be classed as a love song. However, it kind of is. As it's about Mark Tremonti's mother's passing. And the lyrics tell of how he loves her and hopes she is in a happy place. It should be much higher on the list.

Not exactly what I think of when I think about love songs, since it's a song written to a late mother. But it gets my vote anyway, simply because in my mind, this is the most amazing newer rock song. Everyone can relate to these lyrics, I'm sure.

Emotional and touching lyrics sung by one of the most underrated rock singers of our time in Myles Kennedy. Listen to the song and you will no doubt be moved! Top 5 at minimum.

I do love this song, the music and the lyrics, it really describes my feelings and I feel better when I listen to it, cause I lost my mother few years ago...

22 So Far Away - Staind So Far Away - Staind Cover Art

Great love song would have it as my wedding song!

23 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence Cover Art

Lovely voice.. She is the greatest female vocalist ever...

"You cried I wipe away all your tears"

Great song will stand the test of time.

24 This I Love - Guns N' Roses This I Love - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

Lovely song, lovely voice. I suggest you guys should listen and definitely it should be ranked better.

This song is so cool

25 The Reason - Hoobastank The Reason - Hoobastank Cover Art

One of my favorite songs. It has the best lyrics we could ask from a rock love song. And its modern. It was released in 2003. Sweet Child O Mine is a great song but not for this list. Its underrated because of the band. Just listen to it and you will know and love it for sure.

1%.. Have you guys gone nuts
This song must be way higher in the list.. Well I agree I doesn't have much of that high instrumentation...but still the words completely compensate it..

This song deserves to be in the top 10...one of the best love songs ever made. The guy I was dating in 2004 sang this song to me while we were driving down the road heading to his sisters...a week later he was in a car crash and passed away. Bittersweet...It's been 15 years and this song still holds a special place in my heart. I'll never forget him holding my hand in his truck and singing this song to me...❤️

This song is literally a part of me, it's so so beautiful. The day a guy dedicates this song to me, I'll be the happiest girl in the world :) this song just gives me the feels man
