Best Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

Best song of blacksabbaths

62 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day

Why isn't this number 1?
THIS IS THE GREATEST SONG OF ALL TIME!

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! A TOP TEN SONG IS SITTING AT #103! BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS, IN THE END (by Linkin Park), and Enter Sandman (by Metallica) deserve higher spots!

Probably not better than wonderwall... But I don't think it deserves to be below in the end.

what! 63!

63 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.

I Think Eninem Is The Best Rapper Ever And I Know That Marshall Has A Bad Attitude With His Swearing When He Swears I Don't Love But I Don't Car Because I Ignore Bad Language And I Will Never Say This Bad Words But I Love Rappers I Think Rappers Are Hot And Marshall Has The Magical Singing Career Of His Life I'm A Big Rapper Fan And I Know What Marshall Is Saying When He Sings He Is Such A Gangster And A Little Bit Of A Player He Is

64 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

Wow...
I'm actually surprised this is above 50 and the first Coldplay song on the list
My favorite song - GrapeJuiceK

65 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

66 Raise Your Glass - P!nk

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

Raise your glass for piss

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

67 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

A super song about the troubles and strife of everyday life, capturing perfectly the teenage rebellious-ness.
Really an epic song, and learning all 9 minutes of the lyrics isn't much of a feat, because its so catchy you end up singing it

this song is beyond words. Its perfect. If you don't like it. You probably don't understand it. its the modern bohemian rhapsody. just punky. my favourite song of all time. and to all who think this music is crap. I saw comfortably numb and I knew I would vote it. its beyond feelings. but I know this band have out more into this song than any other song I've ever heard.

Amazing song.
Rock opera!
Dark, poetic, emotional lyrics.
A revolution to today's rock music.
One of the greatest songs ever written, in my opinion.
Creative music video to match, directed by the talented Sam Bayer.
Truly an anthem for this generation of teenagers and troubled youth. A comment on society.

Best!

69 Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley

Wow I am surprised this song is not higher. There's a lot of songs I never even heard of above this one. I will check them out on the Tube but really how many people across all generations know Eminem?

This song rocks and should be number 1 - jolow123

It should be top 100 songs of elvis

This must be in the top 5's

70 Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls

I LOVE this song those of you who are scrolling down searching for the best song to vote for LISTEN TO THIS! Just once, I swear if you aren't completely head over heels in love with it after listening to it then you must be some sort of girly pop autotune fan. The goo goo dolls are amazing all their songs can move you emotionally. It is one of the greatest songs of all time and at the VERY least should make the top 35 not double that lower. SERIOUSLY LISTEN TO THIS SONG! YOU'LL LOVE IT!

Best sing ever

71 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

Fantastic song from a fantastic album from a fantastic band! I can't understand why so many horrible songs are so high, especially several that I've never heard of. Viva La Vida is the most incredible thing I've ever heard, I liked it before I'd even heard of Coldplay. - MatrixGuy

Awesome song! Makes you feel like your king. Deserves to be at least in the top 50!

Coldplay's greatest song, everybody knows it and Coldplay is a great amazing band that deserves to have its best song on the best songs of all times list!

The violin sounds just amazing

72 Don't Look Back in Anger - Oasis

One of the greatest for sure without a doubt. Can't believe that songs from MJ are topping songs from this band, such as this one.

Very few artists could pull off sampling Imagine, but Oasis does it as well as anyone ever could.

Beats wonderwall for me. Great song

Shoulda been higher.

73 Black - Pearl Jam

it truly does'nt get any better

Sheer brilliance in the lyrics! The more you listen the more powerful it gets!

Powerfully and emotionally written and performed. Number one in my book

Should be on higher, what?

74 Happy - Pharrell Williams

This song is played so much it makes me unhappy

What this song is terrible how did it get here

I really liked this song, but it got played so much that it started to annoy me. - swrs1234

75 Somebody to Love - Queen

freddie mercury put his best vocals on this one and i think it should be number 1 or 2

Masterful. Freddy shows what he got on this song. Should be top ten.

Freddie Mercury made this song great with his vocals - Ajkloth

One of the best queen songs. Very emotional

76 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

Worst song ever worst song ever

People have to stop voting for songs they like at the time. This is a list of songs which stand the test of time and then some. - Songsta41

This song isn't really that bad, but let's consider that the lyrics were not well thought of. But anyway, it's still really catchy and isn't much of a disgrace.

This song is bad why is this even on this list

77 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

This is my favourite song along with Scorpions - Still Loving You

And how come bands/artists like a7x (okay I'm a fan of them but they NEVER EVER are better then Metallica), 30 seconds to mars, dragonforce etc. higher then this song?

This list sucks.

One is number 7. Go to best metal bands list, Metallica is number one amongst the millions of metal bands in the world (thousands which made the list). Master of puppets is 46 and fade to black is 38. They have multiple songs in high ranking positions on the best metal bands list. No one's robbing Metallica of any credit. - Songsta41

Beautiful song, so emotional, best rock ballad ever! And the lyrics are awesome too.. )

I'm 52 years old and this song by Metallica is absolutely AWESOME... Nothing' else matters!

Masterpiece

78 When I'm Gone - Eminem

One of the BEST Eminems songs and one Of the best songs EVER! Should be at top 20 at least! Anyone disagrees?

Great song. tells a great story. Eminem is phenomenal

I guess this is the MOST inspirational, emotional and touching song by Eminem!
Deserves to be at least top 50...

Put him to sleep...

79 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

Love It So So So So So So So So So So So Much - mneilan

I don't see why this is ranked so low. I guarantee that if you asked Americans if they have heard of this song, I bet at least 95 percent of them would say "yes". The reason why is because it is the best and most recognizable song in history. If you asked If they have heard of any of the other songs on this list you'd be lucky to get 75 percent of people knowing. This song and all other journey songs were written and sang from their hearts. It has such a powerful message no other song will ever come close to matching.

You have GOT to be kidding me. Don't stop believing is at 48! This is the greatest song of all time. It tells an amazing story of two random people from completely different backgrounds that meet against the odds and fall in love. The message is to never give up, which WAY to many people do these days. Whenever I am thinking about giving up at something, I think of this song and let it get stuck in my head until I force myself to decide otherwise. The toon is awesome, a way better training theme than the rocky soundtrack. It is a perfect blend of all styles of music. The instrumentals work in harmony with each other like a orchestra to create the amazing music. The message is overwhelmingly positive. Anything is possible. Humans can do anything we want. Just knowing that we can create this song can convince me of that. This is the Beethoven symphony of the 20th century for gods sake people. It should be way higher.

This has to be the most overrated song of all time - JarfDorkis

80 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.

I don't know which song this is. I might know the tune.'does the tune sound like a ghostly remix?
