141 Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve

Just absolutely fantastic, incredible lyrics, uplifting mood, fits into so many situations, just fantastic

Oh My God. HOW is this song all the way down here?! It's one of my favourite songs, I just can't stop listening. I have no idea why this list is so crappy. WHERE is the Paramore?! Is it even possible not to like it?! Also, Smells Like Teen Spirit should totally be no.3, after Bittersweet Symphony and Misery Business. So a word of warning to the creator of this list: Change it or I will bite you. HARD.

One of best lyrics EVER! it's too emotional and realistic, really that song has to be in top ten =S!

Perhaps my most favourable tune in the world.

143 Ridin' - Chamillionaire
144 Heroin - The Velvet Underground
145 War - Nas
146 First Date - Blink-182

Its a classy act by the one of the punk Greats. This song actually showed how the band was humourous, fun and obviously cool. Check out its video, cried laughing...

Cool PUNK MUSIC VIDEO... you all should listen it and VOTE it...

An awesome song and music video. should never be forgotten.

I was surprised there weren't any Blink songs higher up on the list

147 Drops of Jupiter - Train

I'm actually listening to this right now, it never gets old, && the lyrics are awesome!

Wonderful arrangement, one of the best I've heard, ever. I haven't researched this song well enough, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was "Ghost written" so to speak, because it is that good to me. Both the piano and strings are incredible. It speaks to me, and few Pop songs do. - Ned964

This song a modern classic. Undoubtedly the best song of the 00s. This song kind of defined slow rock. - superjason

Good song

148 Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd's greatest song, one of the greatest classic rock songs of all time. Can't believe it's not even on the list yet. TEACHER, LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE!

Love this! It's a great song and me and my friends always put it on while we're doing art in school for the laughs. Lighthearted and fun, unlike nowadays, where (nearly) every single song is about a relationship that failed with reversed speech/screeching electronics for an instrumental.

One of the greatest songs of all time, I'd say it challenges Bohemian Rhapsody

The perfect rebelion to teaches song

149 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath
150 It's All Coming Back to Me Now - Celine Dion

This is my favorite song of all time. And no one can deny the fact that when this song was released, you actually thought or have said, this song is really great. - RLAAMJR

Spirit song, the words really mean. Everything was right back to ourselves... You who determines your path, your destiny, not fate determine our lives

This song is still one of the best love songs of all time and should be in the top ten best songs in history

That's a wonderful song. Nothing can disclaim that.

151 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Now, I've only listened to about 2 or 3 of these guy's songs but Blackbird... holy cow! The acoustic riff at the very start DEFINES the song's mellow background and Kennedy's voice is stunning and it's not what you would expect out of a rock (well... alt. Rock) band. The drumming is great and the guitar solo... It's pretty self-explanatory. First it start off with what I think is Kennedy's solo and then when you reach Tremonti's you will get mind-blown with his skills. They are AMAZING. Just listen to 30 seconds of anywhere in the song and you will see why I voted this song.

Alter Bridge is the best band of 2000's, Myles is the best songwriter I have ever seen, Mark is the only man to make a stand against Slash, Brian is a secret weapon and Scott is new Bonzo. Those guys are awesome. For me every song of them is great. I voted this song because it's an AB song. Needles to say... I'm proud of being a member and occasionally cyber soldier of AB Nation.

I can not explain that how the song is great.. You just need to listen it.. Its solo part after 4. Mins you can't imagine.. It's best I have ever heard before.. Just listen the song before you vote.. Thank you

Best band

152 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.

153 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

one of the best songs ever and after the drum fill daltry screams at the loudest tone ever and it makes a rock song

This song should be in the top 20 at least.

I'll vote for this whenever I get the chance. - MontyPython

This is indeed, the greatest song ever composed/recorded.

154 My Generation - The Who

HOW ON EARTH CAN THIS POSSIBLY BE ON 395?! Come on people, you've got to be kidding! This song was the song of a whole generation, the mods! It is definitely better than Tokio Hotel, Jason Mraz or The Veronicas?! - thestranger

No way should this be on the list. One of my favorites from the who, even though my generation wasn't the best in terms of the music. - matty925

Wait, I thought this was the worst songs of all time list. Pardon me. This should definitely be higher up. - matty925

Brit bands are being ignored

155 Jeremy - Pearl Jam

Somehow my favorite song is ranked lower than my least favorite song: Fancy by Iggy Azalea. How did that even make the list? - Songsta41

I love this song. It's the absolute best. Just THE best. - Songsta41

Great song with such a sad story

Should be higher than 298

156 Numb / Encore - Jay Z & Linkin Park

An amazing song deserves to be higher

The overrated duo have combined. - swagmaster97

Wow I love this song so much and I never thought it would be here this needs to be higher!

This is the best song by Linkin Park with jay z must be under top 30

157 I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

This is the one of the top 20 songs of all time. This is one that should be in the top 20. There is no way this song should be this low on the list. This is one of the classics that should be on every best song list. It is what got The Beatles started in America. - bre505

This song is quite possibly the greatest song ever written. It is better than anything by Nirvana since kurt cobain would'nt know talent if it shot him in the head (which he eventually did himself.) The Beatles was the greatest Band Ever!! R.I.P. John

I love Kurt Cobain and The Beatles the same but you roasted him right there. - peaceswagtv

The Beatles will never die! - Ajkloth

How is this so low - PeeledBanana

158 Buddy Holly - Weezer

229 eh? What's not to love about this song?

One of the greats

Love this song!

Buddy holly! I know u died but there's a song about u called American pie!

159 We Are Young - Fun.

Used to listen to this all the time when I was in the eight grade. What was I thinking? Crappy autotuned pop songs. The only thing I like from it is that it brings memories back.

Fun was an amazing band

Just horrible

This song is great. One of my favorites.

160 What About Now - Daughtry
