Top 10 Songs of the 21st Century

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Snuff - Slipknot
22 Mr. Brightside - The Killers

This is one of my favourite songs of all time. How in the hell is it not worthy of a top 20 spot? Gah The Killers.

Should be higher, way better than Bruno mars. And who even is that girl at number two?

why isn't this higher? like no.2 on my ipod after drops of jupiter- train

Just AMAZING Love the killers

23 Forever - Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem
24 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

It is one of the best... Now cancel "one of"

I love this song, calms me down

25 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

Violet hill from the same album is much better Violet hill should be very top of list with this song not far behind

After listening to this song, I got a tattoo on my hand which reads Viva La Vida

Great Song! Have listened to it for years and I still love it!

Yesss! Goosebumps every time I listen to this song - Organ

26 Hung Up - Madonna

This dance track gives everybody that listen to it the real meaning to dance music. Always exciting, never boring and definally history making. Madonna never souded the same after this song. The great opening for her best album

Um I think that numb by Linkin Park should be somewhere on this list. I think that it is a great song and should at least be on the list. But ok

Cool list

For a Dance/Electronica song, Hung Up is a masterpiece!

From Madonna Hung Up
From Kylie Minogue Can't get you out of my head

27 The Day That Never Comes - Metallica

Best Metallica's song of the 21st century. Death Magnetic is a good album and Metallica proved they're always at there best with the Death Magnetic tour

Whats the matter guys,
This song definitely deserve much more better position than this.
At least in the top ten. The intro of this song, the solo by kirk is awesome.
Come on vote for it

28 Grenade - Bruno Mars

This song should be number one. It is raw and has real human emotions, not just real human autotune. He is the real deal and the music video is unique. It is not just of a giant dance party like half of today's music videos R. It has a bold and controversial ending that leaves the viewer saying "WHAT? " He commits suicide. He lost his love and he killed himself. Bruno Mars understands human nature and love, as well as loss. He has talent. I love you, Bruno!

One of the best Bruno Mars songs of all time besides Wild girls

Great song. great music, lyrics, and beautiful meaning and voice
