Top 10 Best Modern Rock Love Songs

The Top Ten
1 Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold

"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 the "song" that reminds me and my boyfriend 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 to perform on stage.

2 Snuff - Slipknot

Most people associate love songs with 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 lies 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 number 1.

3 Warmness on the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold

The previous two A7X songs on here are amazing but lean more towards heartbreak than love. This one hits the mark perfectly. Every verse made me think 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 truly great, and I plan on playing it at my wedding.

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

4 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses

Definitely the best rock and roll love song of all time.

5 Without You - Hinder

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 with them and realize that you're better off without them. "It's safe to say that I'm ready to let you leave." I 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 feel strong against my love.

Personally, I prefer Lips of an Angel, but this is great as well.

6 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

If you know the story behind Avenged Sevenfold and Jimmy Sullivan, this song will resonate more profoundly. However, it really applies to anyone who has lost someone close. It captures the emotion accurately and is 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 in the last minute thirty with the emotions. Well done, guys!

7 Broken - Seether

Just an all-around great song. The contrast between Amy Lee and Shaun Morgan brings out so much meaning in what the song is about.

Yes, this is where it's at! The 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 voices are so suitable together! And the lyrics are so awesome!

8 No Matter What - Papa Roach

It's just amazing. I have been looking for a good love song for days now, and finally, I found this one. It's exactly what I wanted. The lyrics express exactly how I feel for my loved one, which is precisely what I was looking for.

Absolutely deserves to be first here. The most romantic lyrics I have heard in a long while. Most songs have a hint of broken 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.

9 Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold
10 Thinking About You - Puddle of Mudd

I honestly LOVE this song! It's the best from Puddle of Mudd!

I recommend it to anyone, even if you don't normally listen to rock.

I love this song. It's so sweet and makes me think of my boyfriend every time. 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 Mudd.

This song reminds me of my boyfriend, and I can't help but smile. I love Wes's voice as well.

The Contenders
11 Through Glass - Stone Sour

I was surprised to see it at #15, but now, seeing the competition, it definitely should 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 playlist.

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 one's self. Just close your eyes and try to feel what he describes. Plain awesome.

12 Far Away - Nickelback

This song is amazing and makes me cry every time I hear it. It makes me stop and think. Thank you for this beautiful art of words. Keep holding on, and look after Avril for me. Thank you.

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

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

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

There really are no words to describe the feelings this song reminds me of. There isn't a better love song than this one.

I 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 sung makes it one of the best songs ever made.

15 Forever - Papa Roach

Such an amazing song with so much meaning and depth.

16 Here Without You - Three Doors Down

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, it evokes a feeling in my heart of deep and buried love.

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

17 Cancer - My Chemical Romance

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 their sound.

I love My Chemical Romance. Never expected it here.

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

Beautiful, beautiful! I fell in love with this song, the music, and 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 me 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 exactly what I feel when I'm in love.

20 Lips of an Angel - Hinder

One of the best love songs made. In my interpretation, it's about him being with a new girl after the two broke up, but they still love each other. Despite what others think, this is a love song about two people who went their separate ways, thinking they were doing the right thing, but are now having second thoughts. It's not about cheating. Wherever you got that idea, only God knows.

They are both now involved in new relationships, and she calls him late at night because she regrets ever letting him go. They don't want to end the relationships they are currently in. They both miss each other's voices and being together. He never wants to completely let her leave his life, but she makes it 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.

21 In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge

This song may not generally be classified as a love song. However, it kind of is, as it's about Mark Tremonti's mother's passing. The lyrics express his love for her and his hope that she is in a happy place. It should be ranked 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, Myles Kennedy. Listen to the song, and you will no doubt be moved. It should be in the top 5 at minimum.

22 So Far Away - Staind

Great love song. I would have it as my wedding song.

23 My Immortal - Evanescence

Lovely voice. She is the greatest female vocalist ever.

"You cried I wipe away all your tears."

Great song. It will stand the test of time.

24 This I Love - Guns N' Roses

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

25 The Reason - Hoobastank

One of my favorite songs. It has the best lyrics we could ask for from a rock love song, and it's modern. It was released in 2003. Sweet Child O' Mine is a great song but not for this list. It's 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 on the list. I agree it doesn't have much high instrumentation, but still, the words completely make up for it.

This song deserves to be in the top 10. It's 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 sister's. 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.
