241 Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard

How can you not have this song in the top 50 also with other songs like photograph, rock of ages, animal, hysteria, love bites, rocket, and arrmagettin it.

To me no single song capsulates an entire era/decade more than this classic rock ditty. Awesome song...lots of memories attached. Nothing else compares. - MusicWoman

Definitely Leppard... In this... So amazing - makes we wanna... Pour some... Sugar on them.

This song needs to be in the top 50

242 Killer Queen - Queen

My second favorite song ever next to bohemian rhapsody and it should be higher than this because no ones better at song witing than Freddie Mercury

This is one of my favorite Queen songs. The Others being I Want to Break Free and Body Language.

best song ever
great solo
i,m not crying

This song is Killer, and it came from Queen.

243 Awake and Alive - Skillet

Skillet the best Christian rock band

Come on guys, it's Skillet! For crying out loud, vote Vote VOTE!

Once of the first songs apart from Hero that Skillet got Jen Ledger signing in. Her and Jon Coopers voice work so well together. Also the song itself cannot be faulted.

Why THE **** is Skillet so LOW?

244 Fighter - Christina Aguilera

Christina was apparently, at first, a bubblegum pop singer packaged by music industry for new potentially-imbecile fans, but afterwards the situation changed. Her album Stripped showed she was a real artist, she had great vocals, great songs including great rhythm, and meaningful lyrics. This song is just a masterpiece, to me, the best of Christina along with the song Beautiful.

this song shows the power of christina, she has the best range and vocals and this song shows her talent! - olgapepsi

This song is very nice...
It gives me strength when I am weak,
Amazing My Christina

One of most inspiring songs, I am in love with christina and her vocals

245 Hot N Cold - Katy Perry

It is not my favorite song but I like it and it is really catchy.

246 All the Shine - Childish Gambino
247 Working Man - Rush
248 The Way - Ariana Grande

This is hands down one of the worst songs I've ever heard.

A wannabe Mariah that fails in all departments.

This song is LOVELY! Ariana Grande is one of the best singers of all time, one of the only ones who can make the whistle vocal! In this song she sings sooo goood! And mac miller makes the song even more fun!

249 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


250 Song of the Century - Green Day
251 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.

252 Rooster - Alice in Chains

This is the best song ever layne you rock rip jerry keep rocking - justicerieth

These lists suck. Really...67... I'm just laughing at how lame this is. Especially the fact that CHRISTINA AGUILERA is WAY ABOVE THIS... Seriously?

AIC has a ton of great songs, this is one of them. One thing this band could and can stand up and be proud of is that their music was always honest. They didn't have to make up song just to get better sales... They sang about their lives, and that will always sell. One of the most underrated bands.

How is this not up there

253 Crawling - Linkin Park

The most emotive, hard hitting screamer! Deserves a place as a representative of it's genre!

This is one of the best songs from Linkin Park I also love Lying from you and Faint

This song is the best.
It's true & everyone can relate to it.

I love the whole album hybrid theory!

254 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater

Whenever people ask me what my single favorite song ever is, I will always answer 'A Change of Seasons' without hesitation. It is really THAT GOOD. It goes through many moods, from Cheerful, Sad, Angry, and Hopeful, while telling the beautiful story of someone's life. Even though it clocks in at almost 24 Minutes, it actually keeps you engaged from start to finish. 'A Change of Seasons' is truly a musical masterpiece.

Progressive Metal WIN. Portnoy and Petrucci showing their amazing skills in drumming and guitars to provide the best song ever made.

This song is truly amazing and is Dream Theaters best song right next to Octavarium It is 23 minutes long which makes it a truly epic song

My favorite all time Dream Theater song by far.

255 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)

256 YYZ - Rush

the best song ever by the best band dare to say there's a better drummer than Neil Peart!!

Lol 367? This should be at least top 50. This song is a milestone in learning to play drums (or guitar or bass) if you can play this you're pretty damn good.

No, Niel is one of the best drummer ever, no argue what so ever, but don´┐Ż't forget 2112 album though.

257 Bat Out of Hell - Meatloaf

the greatest song ever written by one of the greatest singers of all time, imagine what he could have done if he hadnt lost his voice after bat out of hell. a genuine masterpiece. what a voice man! - daftdavy

One of the greatest songs ever made, a definite classic. Sure to be remembered for generations to come.

amazing song! only 9 minutes 16 or something tho. 1 minute 55 intro is epic

Who are Skillet. And why are they above this classic

258 They Don't Care About Us - Michael Jackson


The beats of this song are amazing... Makes me want to dance

I love this song, and it's pretty famous.
I guess this list is going to become a "best songs" list, instead of a "most popular" list.
Nevertheless, this song deserves top spot in any list.

I love this Michael Jackson song so much. I think that the determination this song shows should make it go from 250 to top 50 or 100.
