You don't need brains to get this song. Just have to listen. The lyrics give you goosebumps and no other lyricist can ever walk much as he can. No one can take his shoes. This is him... This is the truth and this is what you should look out for. This needs to be at the top. - quolquier

238 Fix You - Coldplay Fix You - Coldplay V 1 Comment
239 Re-Education (Through Labor) - Rise Against Re-Education (Through Labor) - Rise Against

"To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines
We toss and turn but don't sleep
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebels
Just talk but promise nothing else

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
'Cause sometimes dreams just don't come true
We wait to reap what we are due"

Rise Against should definitely be on this list, they have plenty of songs with strong, meaningful lyrics.

What the hell...Rise against should be in the top 20 at least.

240 The Bad Touch - Bloodhound Gang The Bad Touch - Bloodhound Gang

You and me, baby, ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do it on Discovery Channel.
Certainly of a different quality than the other songs on this list, but still sonewhat clever and allusion-laden.
