304 MakeDamnSure - Taking Back Sunday

This song is good and I also like Cute Without The "E"

305 Looking for Angels - Skillet
306 Secrets - Mary Lambert

Beautiful song with beautiful meaning by a beautiful gal

307 Dancing In the Dark - Bruce Springsteen
308 Lateralus - Tool

Lateralus. The album, the song, sheer genius. Allow me to explain. You see in music each line is comprised of measures and these measures affect how the timing in the song occurs such as the pulses and the drum beats etc. Most songs stay in either 4/4, 2/4, or 8/8 time signature, meaning four beats for every measure, etc. This songs chorus, comprised of three lines, descends by a beat each line. Thus you have 9/8 for the first line, 8/8 for the second line, 7/8 for the final line. If you thought THAT was crazy, that is only the beginning. You see, Lateralus is the title track for Tool's 2001 album "Lateralus. " Now Lateralus in and of itself was a complex song, and most fans thought it a bit awkward the way the syllables were laid out in the verses. This song actually acts as a gateway to a re-structuring of the albums tracks for a "Holy Gift" (as it is known by their fanbase). You see on The Holy Gift version, each track leads perfectly and coherently into the ...more

The most technical band that I have ever listened to. There should be more tool on this list

This is must hear song, the greatest song ever that created by tool. Maynard is very genius artist

Top 20 for me

309 We are the Champions - Queen

Who doesn't know this one...

My older brother. He's 16 and the only song he knows is Thriller. Don't worry, I'm educating him on music😉 - kaitlynrad11

One of the most known songs ever and a total classic that never gets old

Why is this not on the list. It is one of the most recognized song in the world. Just overall a great masterpiece by Freddie Mercury.

310 Rolling in the Deep - Adele

Amazing song, but it's fairly new. Hopefully it can get way higher! - GuitarManiac715

How is this song ranked 323? This is an incredibly good song. It's beautifully executed, and should be way higher. - Pluma

Adele doesn't need auto tune to help her amazing voice! She's also not at all like other artists today(2015). It's purely good music.

YES. Adele rules! So much emotion in her voice!

311 Blank Space - Taylor Swift

Children should not be posting on this list. Now go to bed! And children you will know of "All Time" when you are much, much older. The list is for all time and what would you know of that in the first place to be honest. It's the truth! Don't disrespect artists that have truly earned this list. Have you ever listened to some long time artists that deserve to be on this list? Artists that have at least been around for several decades. Be respectful!

As Of April 9, 2017, I hate the comment I made, I'm Sorry This Is Late but I apologize. - DarkSideOfRandy

Boo! I hate this song with burning passion. All it talks about is Taylor's rich life bragging how she can hypnotize boys and how rich she is. This song has no meaning, one of the worst songs ever. This does not deserve to be on the list. Listen to good music like the beattles, Michael Jackson, or many more classics.

Taylor swift is painful to listen to

This song is okay but definitely not my favorite Taylor Swift song.

312 The End - The Doors

This is simply the greatest piece of music ever created, period. Anyone who votes for anything else has not listened to this song. Nothing else has ever come close to The End in terms of pure brilliance.

Amazing lyrics. Jim rocks!

313 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

The metal version of Bohemian Rhapsody. 7 songs in once! No joke!

314 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

Why is this at 268? This must be way higher on the list!

315 Epitaph - King Crimson

Incredibly powerful song and lyrics. Massive emotional crescendos.

316 Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots

If Eminem can get in the top ten, so can TØP. Their lyrics deal with the meaning of existence, free will, the power of religion, the need to stay alive and what thought really means. That's laid over an immense, almost cinematic marriage that's brutally simple: synth, drums and hope, combining in endless swirls and flourishes that reward every listen. Car Radio isn't a song, it's a landscape of hope and fear and dreams. It's existentialism voiced. It's the dreams of today. Car Radio is a musical masterpiece.

Beautiful. All you people who listen to Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez and think their songs are "deep" should listen to this. IT WILL CHANGE THEIR MINDS! This song is so full of emotion, and the background music is so unique. Trust me, you will like it.

This song right here is truly amazing the way it relates to everyone. The use of symbolism is brilliant.

441? This should be at least 10 - inamate
