Top 10 Songs That Will Restore Your Faith In Modern Music

Hoy know how people hate the 2010s When it comes to music? These will restore people's faith (or not)
Modern: 2010-now

The Top Ten

1 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

It's still my jam. - Misfire

I'm so happy this gem is here. Everything about it just lifts me. - Britgirl

2 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

I understand why this is in the top spot. It's a great song! - Misfire

Absolutely. Every song on this list is phenomenal, and is a great representation of modern mainstream music. - WonkeyDude98

This one is the only respectable song in the list, the other ones give cancer

3 Alright - Kendrick Lamar
4 Burn the Witch - Radiohead
5 Ain't It Funny - Danny Brown
6 Somebody That I Used to Know - Gotye

I loved this song as a kid. Still do. - Misfire

7 Rolling In the Deep - Adele

A lot of songs from Adele restores my faith in modern music, actually. But I'm not such a fan of "Hello". - Misfire

8 Andromeda - Mastodon
9 Show Me a Leader - Alter Bridge
10 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

The Newcomers

? Sit Next to Me - Foster the People

The Contenders

11 We the People - A Tribe Called Quest
12 All of Me - John Legend

I'll never ever grow tired of hearing this. It's beautiful - even the funked up version. - Britgirl

13 Gore - Deftones
14 Someone Like You - Adele
15 Apocalypse - Jackie Evancho

Jackie Evancho's just released single is her first venture into the world of "pop", now that she is 16 years old. Her once-a-century voice has previously been heard mostly on Classical, Musical Theater, Christmas, and Classical Crossover-genre numbers, but its no surprise that an exceptional talent like hers can sing almost anything.

Why no sample or photo?

16 Set Fire to the Rain - Adele
17 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

I guess it's alright. I listen to it occasionally. - Misfire

18 Six Degrees of Separation - The Script

The Script's the best man!

19 Full Throttle Tribe - Pain of Salvation
20 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
21 Elastic Heart - Sia
22 Pompeii - Bastille
23 Demons - Imagine Dragons
24 Riptide - Vance Joy
25 L.A. Girlz - Weezer
26 Runaway - Kanye West
27 Downtown - Macklemore
28 Lithium - Evanescence

I'm sorry, but this is my opinion: Most of the songs on this list don't even restore my faith in modern music, but this is one of the few that do! Seriously, songs like this should have way more recognition.

29 Wake Me Up - Avicii
30 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace
31 My Name is Human - Highly Suspect
32 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

I surprised myself by how much I love this song. His voice suits it. It's stripped back and a lot mire grown up than previous JB songs. Made much better though because it was written by Ed Sheeran. - Britgirl

33 Final Masquerade - Linkin Park
34 Rope - Foo Fighters
35 Wicked Games - The Weeknd
36 King Kunta - Kendrick Lamar
37 The Monster - Eminem
38 Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots
