Best Songs of All Time

221 The Final Countdown - Europe

Just an amazing song, love it!

This song is awesome. Why is it so far from top 10?

I'm voting for it because my favorite song is already #1. How is this song down here? I ' love it - PeeledBanana

Come on, it should be at the top 10 people! - Yungstirjoey

222 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

333, really? Seeing that Michael Jackson, Beatles and G&R (who are undoubtedly great artists, but honestly, there are not gods or something) all have around 10 songs in the top 100 while one of the greatest and most influential metal bands of all time has their first song at 333 is just sad. While BTROD is not their best song, it's just beautiful. It has both chilling and hard sections and a godly guitar solo. No hate against the other artists, but this should at least be 50.

This song should be near stairway to heaven it's just as epic

Not one of my favorite priest songs but it was the first I found on the list an its at 316 that's rediculousy low even for just this song it's got a good solo 2 good one in fact and great lyrics

223 Hero - Skillet

Really uplifting and awesome songs

This is my favorite skillet song

2nd top song in my rock list 1st is it's my life bon jovi

Skillet makes me so happy.Skillet has so much meaning in their songs.

224 Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie

Bowie is one of the absolute best. The whole Scary Monsters album was fantastic.

The highest song by David at 302. THERE'S NO JUSTICE!

Not the Best David Bowie song. But still great.

So good even a T.V. show was made after it. If you haven't seen this show then watch it.

225 Painkiller - Judas Priest

This is one of the best songs of all time and the best metal song in my opinion

Why is this at 982?

this should be in the top 100

A metal masterpiece, I don't get why this is at 1000

Why is Judas Priest under Crap 5?

226 Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland

This song is one of the best if not the best classic songs. Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. Forever a classic!

Great Song sung by many people! I especially like Is version

Yes. Super classic and beautiful

227 The Trooper - Iron Maiden

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back - htoutlaws2012

What how is this beauty below 700!?

The greatest song from the greates band.

228 Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd

This song made me cry 4 times. It reminds me of my mom that passed. I would put this as number 1 for sure!

The best 3 chord song ever! Top 20.

229 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin

This song is really good. Good from most of the songs in top 100. And quite underrated too. I suggest you to give it a try. You will like it for sure. I is among the best songs by Led Zeppelin.

Bonham's drumming, Plant's vocals, and the sheer thickness and heaviness of this song makes it the best.

The intro blows my mind even after the a millionth time. This song combines the four best musicians into a blues masterpiece.

Best led Zeppelin song this should be number one

230 All These Things That I've Done - The Killers

Such a good song, deserves much more credit

231 Madness - Muse

I just can't believe that this song is not on this list. I think this song is just beyond awesome.

232 Birthday - Selena Gomez V 1 Comment
233 President Carter - Lil Wayne

This song is dreadful - Ajkloth

234 Photograph - Nickelback

I saw those "Look at this photograph" videos.

235 Like a Prayer - Madonna

I just love it. The gospel choir the music style everything perfect best song ever

Definitely my favorite song of all-time. The song was brilliant for its time and a huge risk for a pop star like Madonna. Going back to when it came out, this song sounded like nothing else that was happening back then and nobody ever thought its sound was "mainstream" enough to relate to the public. It has stood the test of time.

Amazing! Should be ranked higher! Song is yearning and passionate in only a way Madonna can deliver!
Madonna and a few other artists I love has unique voice. Her voice and the words of this song fit perfectly.

I've been a Madonna fan for over 30 years and am amazed this song isn't in the Top Ten! The woman is an icon. I've seen her perform this song live twice and she is amazing. Love this song.

236 Piano Man - Billy Joel

My favorite song, cheerful and comforting!

It's impossible to get rid of this song once it has entered your mind, and it's impossible to get bored! Go Billy Joel! And go Piano Man! (Hey man what are you doing here? )
Lalala lalala ;)

This is the greatest song of all time it has been my favourite song ever since I could remember it captured the hearts of millions this is the best song of all time!

I heard it last weak on the radio, and I loved it from the first second till the last second, I'm listening it the whole day now!

This is the greatest song of all times

237 Supper's Ready - Genesis

This song took me about half an hour to find, and by the end my index finger hurt from scrolling too much, but I new from the beginning this was my choice. To see it in 1072nd place is quite shocking. Being a teenager I feel I can truly evaluate modern music against its slightly older counterparts, but even Genesis as a whole didn't show up until the 953rd position. Them, as a group, being this low on the list, is, to me, a disgrace to the human race.

Best song ever, no doubt, even if very few really know Peter Gabriel's Genesis, they're the best band ever in term of pure quality, and this is the best song they made.

One of the few 20+ minute songs that doesn't bore, annoy, or wear on me. I could listen to this song all day - musicman4

*sighs* why don't people understand what good music is anymore... it is so sad that this song has almost entirely passed out of knowledge, and for one very simple reason: it is too long. Which is ironic since that is one of things which makes it so good
(Note: I actually rank this 2nd on my all time list, behind "Here Comes the Flood" - Peter Gabriel (Greatest Hits version) however obviously virtually no one shares my view on that) - JonnyMoo

238 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

NIN are a force to be reckoned with what a band what a song

Without a doubt the sexiest song of all time.

I came so hard to this

Gotta agree. This song grabs you the first time you hear it and never let's go. Brilliant. The perfect mix of industrial and dark dance club samples. Definitely in my Top 20 all time. The remix at the beginning of the movie Se7en, is spooky. - Ned964

239 Cemetary Gates - Pantera

I don't like Pantera in general, but this one's a serious classic. Beautiful pinch harmonic, a lovely solo; its more of a power ballad. Easily top 20 material.

I'm a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery...
The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
It's nothing new for him to see
I didn't ask him why
I will remember
The love our souls had
Sworn to make - htoutlaws2012

I couldn't believe my eyes when I didn't see Pantera on the list. They are simply amazing!
The intro, the solo, the end!
R.I. P Dimebag Darrel

240 Rap God - Eminem

How is this not higher up? Its built on pure talent

Another Eminem Track Hit The Charts And this time its Rap God one of the most Downloaded songs Ever with Eminems HiGh Speed Rap

I love this song. It's lyrical genius. Put this up against Jay-Z or Kanye West, it's not only the speed (I memorized it, it's at aprox. 4:25) but how it isn't the same lyrics repeated in every line. *cough* Nikki Minaj stupid ho *cough* *cough*
