142 Ridin' - Chamillionaire
143 War - Nas
144 Heroin - The Velvet Underground
145 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

146 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

Best grunge pop song

I'm so angry,

Should be number 1... - SuperCharged

148 Tom Sawyer - Rush

540?! Are you serious? I mean, there are plenty of other good songs on this list, but Rush is the best band ever formed (hands down), and this is their best song! If this doesn't go higher, I think I'll mean mean cry!

I love RUSH. They are indeed great. They are not the greatest band of all time. That would be the Beatles. This is however possibly one of the (if not the) greatest rock songs of all time.

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit - htoutlaws2012

Well written Rush tune. But as stated by many, a vastly underrated band. - Ned964

149 We Found Love - Rihanna

I Love this song it gives me a good feeling

It's just a repeating song the whole time

If you think this is the only thing of this song you have zero taste in music, the base is perfect, Rihanna's voice is stunning and it has so much meaning. - DaisyandRosalina

I love the video for this song!

150 Paschendale - Iron Maiden

Can't stand to see garbage like Imagine and Smells Like Teen Spirit in the top five whilst this epic, but also poetic monster of a song is at #304. - IronSabbathPriest

151 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.

152 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

I like the beatles better

153 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

I'm a huge fan of the bee gees & This is undoubtedly their best, one of the most popular songs of all time
Vocals of all three gibbs' is just mind blowing in this song not to mention the ecstatic beats that were looped from their other single "Night Fever"

Yes, this is the BEST song ever. Why in the world is it not #1?

Have you people never seen Saturday Night Fever?

154 Life on Mars? - David Bowie

Find this song, press play and then close your eyes. That is the only way you can possibly understand the greatness, depth and genius of this song.

This is the song that for me has the one of the best tunes with great use of the piano. But wait till you've listened to those epic vocals!

Seriously? Why isn't this on here? It's the best song ever! It makes me cry. It deserves to be on the top ten at least

I saw this as No. 1 on another list. Now I'm a Bowie fan, but I thought that a bit much. Can't argue with ith it's ingenuity, as I agree Bowie invented the whole Glam rock thing, and this song was a huge part of it. RIP David - Ned964

155 Mr. Blue Sky - Electric Light Orchestra

I'd agree this innovative band has many better songs. "Showdown" would be a great place to start. Great harmony and obviously orchestral accompaniment with this band. - Ned964

This song is my absolute favorite. It's groovy, it's poetic, it's soulful and it's an instant mood-lifter. Should be much higher on this list.

It's a good song but the band has many other underrated hits

A very uplifting song great rhythm catchy lyrics and a brilliant end to a

156 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

How is Taio Cruz above this timeless tune?

157 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

Why are people disliking the comments of those who say this is a good song?

Seriously please get this higher. Great vocals rapping and such a good song for a great movie. VOTE GUYS VOTE VOTE VOTE!

Absolutely touching and thought it!

158 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

159 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
