163 Ridin' - Chamillionaire Ridin' - Chamillionaire
164 War - Nas War - Nas
165 Drops of Jupiter - Train Drops of Jupiter - Train

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

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

The way train may have written the lyrics may be different to the way people think about them today and many people think different things about what the lyrics mean and can connect with them.

An amazing "coming in to yourself" song!

166 Blackbird - Alter Bridge 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

If Metallica can make the top 10, so can this one

168 The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

This has been an anthem for many people! "Today I don't feel like doing anything, I just wanna lay in my bed. Don't feel like picking up the phone, so leave a message at the tone! "

This is one of his worse songs in my opinion. Where's Locked Out of Heaven or Treasure?

I think this is a really good song and I want to always have the song

I don't like most pop music but this one is just good

169 We Found Love - Rihanna 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

170 Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers
171 Knights of Cydonia - Muse Knights of Cydonia - Muse

The singing and guitar riffs go perfectly together, and the drumming fits in just as well

This song is an amazing rock song that deserves a higher spot on the list. It has a great guitar, bass, drums, and outstanding vocals!

Kick ass riffs, amazing vocals, awesome drumming, great bass and one of the best songs live, EVER! This should definitely be first place.

173 Enter Sandman - Metallica Enter Sandman - Metallica

Simply the best hard rock song ever. James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich and Jason Newsted were geniuses to come up with this masterpiece. - aman28

Don't forget, my son
To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the Sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We're off to never never land - htoutlaws2012

Haha. It's funny because the next verse has some of the worst lyrics of all time. It goes, and I quote, "Heavy thoughts tonight, and they aren't of snow white" - VaticanCameos

This has to be the greatest song ever by Metallica, short of Nothing else matters, definitely my favourite song from Black, love the version on S^^M too

How is P! nk, Taylor Swift, and Iggy Azalea above this masterpiece? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

174 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

Come on! This song is much better than 202!

This song should be un 70 place at least

175 Civil War - Guns N' Roses Civil War - Guns N' Roses

Love this song, still get me through the end

Took me awhile to like the song, but now I do. - matty925

Civil War is arguably the greatest song in the history of mankind, I mean the song goes up and down, left and right High and Low it gets deppressing and optimistic, this song is followed by One from Metallica and Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, it is absoulotely amazing, wonderfully awesome, amazingly great, I think it's the perfect song, I'm a 14 year old Syrian kid from Damascus and I have almost listend and memorized every song in the top 100 list and I can assure you Civil War is the best one but I have to admit that because of the horriple civil war that's happening in Syria right now this song has effected me greatly and I may value it more than other people because it tells the story of my reality and so maybe I'm a little biased because the civil war in Syria does in fact feed the rich while it burrys the poor

176 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"

Have you people never seen Saturday Night Fever?

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

This should be in the top ten why is it 248!

177 Buddy Holly - Weezer Buddy Holly - Weezer

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

178 Numb / Encore - Jay Z & Linkin Park 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

179 Aerials - System of a Down Aerials - System of a Down

Best System of a Down song for sure.

180 On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons

WHAAAT?!?!?! 202?!?!? This song is too good to be in the 200's! "i'm on top of the world and I know, it's a long way up cause it's a long way down! Get up now! Get up! Get up now! " Dove Cameron sang this song too!

Nah, we need to put Elton John, Celine Dion, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and many more on the top 100 before we deal with Imagine Dragons. But to be honest, Coldplay should be higher than Imagine Dragons. - okcnaline

I don't know if any others people like this but I like it

This song encourage me in the hardest times. It makes me wnat to climb every mountain. Another perfect song from Imagine Dragons
