41 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

BEAUTIFULLY sung. Most (the majority of these songs should not be on any top list). How can this song be rated this low is beyond my comprehension. Just goes to show you, different strokes for different folks.

This song should top ten at least! You can go anywhere in the world and people will know this song and know it word for word. It is truly timeless, could have been released yesterday and still have been a hit.

Whitney is awesome, but lets also give kudos to the songwriter, and that is Dolly Parton!

Best song ever :D

42 Wonderwall - Oasis

Best one ever. best tune, deep lyric, brilliant band. oasis!

Wonderwall is the only song that was able to captivate me from beginning to end. In every song that I hear, I tend to have favorite parts & others that I don't really like all that much- sometimes it's chorus, the lyrics in the middle, the music.. Something HAS to be a little off 'cause nothing is perfect. Wait- Wonderwall just proved that THERE IS by existing!
It was the first song I heard by Oasis, and I was surprised to find that this was the only song I really liked among their works. The rest of their music was sure good, but not exactly my kind of thing, so I can't say I'm a fan of Oasis- just a fan of their best song EVER.

When they wrote this song they were bound to do wonders in the coming ages and they did too. Too bad they broke up. This songs enlarges my beady eyes!

43 In the End - Linkin Park

There is many reasons that makes me vote for this song. Logically, because it's my favorite song. I have listened to this song many times, and always I feel that it is a masterpiece. The combination of Chester's and Mike's voices is perfect. They know how to use characteristics of rock and rap, the timing of instrumental is very archietected, and it's lyrics is amazing. By the way, I think modern bands and songs are too disregarded, so I think that this is a way to deconstruct this mentality in Rock's World. - TheGodOfNewWorld

I like Linkin Park this is the greatest rock band of the world I think in the end would be number 1 but burn it down is better than in the end I am shocked burn it down is not in this list what the hell is crawling

My favorite song ever. Best Linkin Park song ever. Should be in the top 20. This is Linkin Park's signature song and send them into mainstream success. Due to this Hybrid Theory sold 30 mill. Best song of the new millenia and top 20 song ever. If you heard it, you know you love it, if you haven't you need to hear it. - yougnr1116

It's an awesome song one of my favourite song of Linkin Park.

God bless LP. RIP CHESTER.

44 Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles

Personally I think that the Beatles were the best band to ever be, and more of their sons should be on this list. This song is awesome and has so much meaning in it. I am glad that it is on this list, but I think it should at least be in the top 20.

Should be way higher! Also I can't understand how there's only one single Beatles song in the top 100! - elin_m

my fave song ever=) love this and not everyone could understand what is it about but it makes me feel better

This should be higher, it's a very well written song as usual for John Lennon - _Jack_

45 Numb - Linkin Park

I wish this was among the top ten. I love this song so much.
'I've become to deaf, I can't vote this up'

Class!... Should have been included in the top 10 list!...
Its got the best music!
It is really addictive!

I've been hearing it every day for years! Simply the best..

Chester at his best.
Should definitely be in top 10

46 Light My Fire - The Doors

The soundtrack to "The Summer of Love" in 1967 was this iconic 7 minutes of musical genius by Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger and John Densmore

A great song, but by a grossly overrated band, in my humble opinion... Easily their best, but I just don't get a lot of their other stuff. Maybe I just missed out on that whole vibe, because as much as friends have tried to enlighten me to the Lizard King, I don't even feel he's the most talented guy in the band. - Ned964

Great song by one of the greatest bands of all time!

Not the best Doors song but it's still very good - _Jack_

47 Losing My Religion - R.E.M.

This song is so beautiful to my ears and soul. I can't help, but to sing it and the simplicity; yet hidden meanings and phrases are just to fantastic! Gawd I love R.E. M! They are true geniuses who have tapped into something that very few ever do. The melody is just enchanting. I wish them the best always!

Amazing song. Some of the most beautiful and thought-provoking lyrics ever written. Should be ranked much higher.

I love this song. We can all associate this song with ourselves at some point in our lives. This is like heaven to me! R. E. M is a true artist.

This is a good band - _Jack_

48 Baba O'Riley - The Who

Talk about the greatest opening ever, then the power chords come in and it's musical bliss. How is Eminem and Taio Cruz ahead of this?

One of the greatest songs ever created an absolute masterpiece!!!!

Umm really? Lower than uptown funk and happy? I love those songs but I was expecting this to be in the top 20 even though in my opinion it should be number 1

It should be on first page!
Forget it, its only teenage wasteland

49 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

Chop suey it's maybe the greatest creation of System Of A Down..

And one of the greatest music creations ever!

Greatest musical song with sad and hateful lyrics. - moose4life19

Honestley this song should be up near the top. Just check out some of the band's other songs you won't be dissapointed. - SystemFTW

One of Systems greatest songs (although in my opinion not quite the single best System song), and one of the greatest songs I've heard. System are honestly one of the best bands of all time, and if you disagree then fight me lol. Definitely deserves higher though

50 All Along the Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Pure genius... Check it out on YouTube and I guarantee that you'll vote for it

What an iconic Hendrix tune. 181st place? How is this even possible? Jimi does this masterpiece tune to perfection.

Truly everyone wished Jimi could have changed his poor life choices. If he did, we could still be hearing this song be performed to this day! Jimi would be 71, but who knows? Rolling Stones and Beach Boys still tour which is amazing. I think he could still be performing if he were alive.

I prefer Voodoo Child - _Jack_

51 Yesterday - The Beatles

I am such a fan of the Beatles and I think that this is one of their best songs! This song has been in so many movies and referenced to all the time! Anyone who listens to music knows and loves this song! Why would anyone put it ad number 84 on a list of best songs? This is a question we all need to consider! I'm way younger than you would expect but I don't like most of the new pop junk and I love the Beatles so don't spit on some of their best work!

This song was listed 73 when I voted? Is everyone nuts? Rock you like a hurricane was in the top 20!?!?
Grow up!

This song is the third or fourth most profitable songs ever... Just after "Happy Birthday" and "White Chrismas"... And this is because is the most covered song in history, recorded by almost 4, 000 artists. Appealing to facts, this song does not have a real challanger of its own size. It's a monster; one of the most sublime pop/folk written ever.

Sad love song.

52 Clocks - Coldplay

This song should be so much higher in this list! So amazing! - TheSilentBang

Something that I really like about this song that doesn't get mentioned a whole lot is the bass line. Guy Barryman Rules, and it's probably the worst part of the song!

Coldplay is simply amazing, and what about this song? This is one of the few who make you capture special moments! No wonder why its used in many commercials and movies as soundtrack! I love it! And I love every single song of Coldplay, they are just so original

good

53 Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Far better than most of the songs ranked higher. - pharaoh45

One of there best songs and should be number one on this whole list! And I also love that they have 4 songs on the list because Anthony Flea John and Chad are that sick(even though John wasn't there for that song)

Greatest Song EVER! FACT. Sometimes I feel like I don't have partner, sometimes I feel like my only friend. Is the city I live in the city of angel lonely as I am together we cry... I drive on the streets because shes ma companion, I walk through the hills because she knows who I am. She sees my good deeds and she kisses the windy well I never worry now that is a lie... I don't ever wanna fel like I did that daay, take me to the place I love, take me all the way, I don't ever wanna fel like I did that daay, take me to the place I love, take me all the way! BEAUTIFUL!

This song makes me cry. Anyone who knows me knows the significance of that.

54 Strobe - deadmau5

Truly the greatest song ever composed. Deadmau5 gives every portion of this near 11 minute song an incredible amount of attention, giving this song a ton of emotion and giving you a strong sense of empowerment. This song brings me close to tears of joy at the beginning, than has me dancing by the beat drop. This is truly music, right here. - kinderfall1

I'm extremely surprised but very happy that this masterpiece made if onto this list. In my opinion, this is top 10 quality. Truly one of the most iconic and most emotionally moving songs I can remember. The full 10 minutes is 3000% worth listening to to get the full feeling. To the top 100 and beyond for deadmau5!

I looked through 5 pages on the slowest wifi ever to find and vote for this. I'm really disappointed with how low this Mona Lisa of edm is on the list. This song will take you on an unforgettable journey. It might be long, it might have no lyrics, but every second of this gem is worth it. You will never hear anything quite like it.

Deadmau5 needs to respect real music and stop making crap music.

55 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Excellent song from a GREAT band!
Everyone in the world should listen to this song.
Like this song, keep listening to their other songs. Very touching. Ozzy osbourne is a god

The onset of truly hard death metal. Sabbath was the pioneer of their own genre, duplicated by many but never matched. Awesome stuff. I actually think some of their best stuff comes after Ozzie! Oops! Is that sacreligious? Anyway, it all rocks, as does this song. - Ned964

Should be in the top 20. By all means, sabbaths best song! - matty925

I don't like Black Sabbath too much - _Jack_

56 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Plant's vocals are spectacular and the riff is perfect. If any Led Zep epic deserves to kill the other songs on this list, it is not Stairway to Heaven. It's this. Listen to the lyrics; they're brilliant in this 8 1/2 minute orgasm to the ear.

I agree this song is by far their best. Songs come and go but Kashmir stays with you forever and continues to move you in new ways. This is my number one song of all time.

Awesome, emotional, once it is under your skin it will stay with you for the rest of your life. That is the yardstick here!

How is this only 60? This deserves to be at least in top 40!

57 Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones

The greatest rock song ever created

Those haunting backing vocals still make the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Great intro, great song. Sometimes you do your best work under the gun, and I think this song is proof of exactly that. It was recorded and proofed in 1 day/night. The back up vocalist was woken up and asked to come the studio at 7 or 8 months pregnant w/o any prior knowledge of the Stones interest, and after first refusing, she caved in and went to the studio. She did all her back up vocals in 1 take. Simply amazing. One of the best rock songs of all time. I'm so thankful that it all came together just like it did - Ned964

It's recognized as one of the best Rolling Stones songs ever, so how can it not be at least in the top 20? The riffs and Merry Clayton's backup vocals are absolutely out of this world.

The best rock song ever in my opinion. Much better than all the Beatles soft rock songs listed ahead of it.

58 Anarchy In the U.K. - Sex Pistols

Oasis is in the Top Ten and this isn't in the Top 100? Nickelback is on this list and The Sex Pistols aren't? I don't even know where to begin trying to explain how wrong this is.

Now we're talking! The iconic British punk song, and album for that matter. Amazing that a band that wasn't particularly talented instumentally could put out something this great, but they did. Must have been high on the goofballs. - Ned964

Great classic punk song, Johnny Rotten has an incredibly unique voice, he sounds like an old man screaming in rage, but in a good way. I love how this song is about protesting, it is awesome. Great classic 70s sound to it. - AnimeDrawer

So much better than half of the songs on here. I'm saying that and I'm 13

59 Raise Your Glass - P!nk

Oh wow, was not expecting this at #86. - ProPanda

I could love this song so much. But I'd prefer Get the Party Started! - PowerKamek

Raise your glass. Sure it sounds like a drunk crazy party but it's still amazing

Its good but id ont think its good enough for this list specifically in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

60 Lose Yourself - Eminem

I'm not much of a rap lover but no one can disagree that eminems lyrics are superior, not only within rap but in an overall perspective and it's shown through one of the greatest songs, if not the greatest of all time.
True inspiration.

Not many hip-hop songs so I decided to vote for this because it's the first rap song I listened it and I liked it and that's why I am an Eminem fan.

Good lyrics which helped Eminem become success worldwide with this big hit.

Most people remember this song that started his success - savinhiphop4life

So what I he doesn't like rap this is best songs not best rap songs but still I think this is the best song ever - simpsondude

The sheer lyrical genius of this song deserves a spot in the top ten. The well renowned course in conjunction with the emotion that Eminem pours into every syllable, truly show the songs true genius.

MOM'S SPEGGHETTI
