Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 13

241 All the Shine - Childish Gambino
242 Working Man - Rush
243 The Monster - Eminem

Best song by Rihanna and Eminem yet! It hasn't been out for 2 month and the official music video of it has almost 100,000,000 hits! Now that's something, impressive.

I loved this song it really hooked me in


244 Song of the Century - Green Day
245 Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen is the best Rock & Roll singer ever! Every time he makes a new song or album; he makes a masterpiece. Born to run is a one of his best songs along with the river, thunder road, Tougher than the rest, bobby jean, born in the USA = I could continue for hours. He deserves to be in top 10 at least with one of the mentioned songs. Instead of being number 108, that is ridiculous.. Just my opinion - Rock & Roll and the boss for Life!

It's true, BtR in the Top 10! But we know: Bruce doesn't use drugs, alcohol, he's not suicide and he hasn't long hair. But we know his live concerts!

"The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
but there's no place left to hide"

This song should be in the top 10.

You could and should continue on for hours. The Boss is no joke. Let me just name drop a few more great songs, Candy's room, Prove it all night, Badlands and my favorite, Promised Land. All off the same Album - Ned964

246 Everlong - The Foo Fighters

This Song is my favourite song ever made. It is just beautiful! I listen to a ton of bands ranging from punk to light rock to deathcore and I really have no favourite band but without a doubt this song is my favourite. It's just so good and so well put together. It really makes you stop to think about all the good things in your life and give you the courage to live through every day. This being below Party Rock Anthem makes me want to shoot myself with a gun by the way lol.

Fantastic, Powerful, Consuming. This song Is a milestone by the Foo Fighters by far, and is super addictive. Yet the meaning is still so simple (Love) and is summarized in the first line "Hello, I've waited here for you, Everlong"

Everlong is definitely the most beautiful song for me. So passionate, so perfect. Dave Grohl actually made a perfect song I think. If you ever checked out Everlong live at wembley, everyone will fall in love with that song.

Best Foo Fighters song...Should be way higher on the list.

247 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

Thanks for reminding me to get this on the old ipod! Happy ears! A song everyone can relate.

Such a beautiful and meaningful song!

248 She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5

There is just so much emotion and realism in this poem, its is awesome!


Maroon Five sucks now, but I thought they were really good at first. I have no problem with early Maroon 5 stuff being on this list.

(I don't think I have heard this one before)

249 We are the World - U.S.A. for Africa

It is difficult to choose the best song in Michael Jackson's legacy. All his songs are unique and breathtaking. The hymn "We Are the World" definitely deserves our recognition.

This should be also in the list because of the lyrics that can touch any heart of all mankind. And it got a revival version where many of the popular artist this time has do it for the people who needs help.

250 White & Nerdy - "Weird Al" Yankovic

White and Nerdy is a fantastic song, It is much better than ChamillionR. It should be in the top 15 at least...

come on guys how many white guys do u know that can actually pull that off and still be a hit....... keep thinking about it exactly not that many. - shashasls

Weird al is the BEST! There should be a lot more of his songs in the top 100. - anonymous

Funny song and sung pretty well by Weird Al.

251 Airplanes - B.o.B

"Could we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I could really use a wish right now."
Some of the best lyrics I've ever heard in a song.

252 Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's

WOW this song is just good! I LOVE IT! REMINDS ME OF MY PAST

This song is very recognizable to most people and is very good - Ajkloth

253 Dogs - Pink Floyd

You've gotta be crazy not to include this song.

Amazing song with stunning solos by Gilmour along with great lyrics and should be much higher on this list. Pink Floyd's best along with The Gunner's Dream and Echoes.

Dogs should be in the top 10, pink Floyd's best song

Waaay too far down on this album. This song is profound and absolutely insane

254 F*** You - Cee Lo Green

Fun fact: this was the original version of the hit song: forget you

255 Basket Case - Green Day

Top 10 of the 90's... 473 on the best songs? - mr_crossover27

This should be NUMBER ONE!

How is Song of The Century higher than this!? I like it just fine but it's 58 seconds! - Ilikefishsticks

Needs to be higher.

256 It's Sad to Belong - England Dan & John Ford Coley

So this is at 247 and cleary their best song, "Really love to see you tonight" hasn't shown up yet... hmm, something is fishy here. - Ned964

257 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.

I'm straight outta Compton! Crazy mofo named Ice Cube. With Attitude! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I think this should be higher on the list because it is N.W.A's best song. And one of the greatest albums of all time is named after it.

Word, yo the mothaphukka

No. Just no. Get this trash outta here.

258 Dammit - Blink 182
259 Little Wing - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Is the best arrangement for a guitar, and also the lyrics are wonderful, just the best song of all time


260 Where Is the Love? - The Black Eyed Peas

It is an awesome song, and so true. I love the Black Eyed Peas, and this song completely relates to our current situation in the world. - TwiHardgurl

This song is so truthful, and meaning full, that I can't believe it wasn't already on it, but something like LMFAO is. Come on, vote it up!

"Whatever happened to the values of humanity?
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality?
Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity"

Deserves a place in the top 100.
