Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 14

261 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

262 Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

Can I ask you all something? WHY THE HELL IS THIS NOT HIGHER? This is one of the greatest songs ever made and it's probably my favorite Adele song. I hate this stupid "only top 500 for remixes" BS because then songs like this can't get into my remix. It's not fair at all. - DCfnaf

Adele has the most amazing voice EVER! If you have not heard this song of don't like it, you got problems

Great song it needs to go higher - Cartoonfan202

263 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


264 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.

265 Dammit - Blink 182
266 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.

267 Locked Out of Heaven - Bruno Mars
268 She Looks So Perfect - 5 Seconds of Summer

This song sounds so flawed I want to rip its American apparel underwear

5 seconds of summer is just as confusing as one D. Are they in love with the same girl or is it one of them who likes her?!

Oh good lord not this band this isn't proper music I swear

I guess this awful song is better than Shine on you Crazy Diamond - 445956

269 Bullet with Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins V 1 Comment
270 Thorn In Your Eye - Anthrax
271 Rise Above - Black Flag

Certainly not the best song ever, but the best when it comes to US-Hardcore-Punk. Genre-defining!

272 Until the End - Breaking Benjamin
273 Be OK - Ingrid Michaelson
274 West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys

The pet shop boys at their best great atmosphere on their first hit

275 Dead! - My Chemical Romance

Amazing song by a great non-Emo rock band - Aman42k

276 Mortal Share - Insomnium V 1 Comment
277 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

278 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.

279 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

Best solo, best chorus, best melody, best orchestra! - Varun303

What the hell is wrong with people these days?
This is easily the greatest song ever,
AND IS LOWER THAN BABY BY Justin Bieber! (at the time)
That is just wrong and needs to be fixed

Easily the best song on their new self titled album. The solo is amazing.

The best song of the 21st century

280 Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

I don't want to say this site is bad, but seriously? The first dire straits song on number 153? This is (one of) the greatest rock bands to ever exist, and I'm not only talking about this song... Telegraph road, Romeo and Juliet, tunnel of love, love over gold, they should all be in the top 50 at least.

Why is Michael jackson, akon, backstreet boys, mariah carey all in front of his song. what is wrong with you people

LISTEN to this song people! it's a disgrace it's not even in top 3. Must be a kiddies charts (unbelievable)

This song is so perfect, musically and lyrically... Not even in the top 100? Tsk tsk tsk.
