3 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

This song is so annoying.

Yeah this is a great song, it's really powerful

Yes yes yes yes!

4 Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park

This song is something to play at a wedding. The relaxed feeling of the song is socalming and at the same time rocks you to the core. When I heard it for the first time I was shaking. Chester should get a Nobel Piece Prize if he hasn't yet. - lukestheman4

When ever I hear this song.. It's like I'm floating on the air...

This is one of my favorite songs. I am a big Linkin Park fan but lot of others tend to turn to Hybrid Theory as their favorite. Though there's nothing wrong with Hybrid Theory, Minutes To Midnight has always been my favorite, this song in particular.

Whenever I hear this, I always tearing
I'm flooding my face with tears
So sad...
Very very very sad...
It's really slow... and great

5 One - U2

This is the most beautiful off them all just listen it

6 Everlong - Foo Fighters

David Grohl just gets better and better and this song is about 15 years old.

Hear both the acoustic and the original and definitely see their live performance at the wembley stadium! I loved it

7 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple

Amazing song. Perfect for some relaxation.

8 Closer - Kings of Leon

because kings of leon have been producing music for a very long time and their latest album which this track is on has gave them the major boost that they needed to reach the fame they have discovered. All of their music is phenomanal and they really do deserve everyone's vote as they are just such a brilliant band and all indivually talented musician's, they're great =)

I voted for them because I listen to the Only By Night album every night before I go to sleep and it makes me think about this girl I really like

Beautiful song definitely worth a listen

9 Rainbow Eyes - Rainbow

Dio's vocal superiority and grace shines through this song like a Rainbow in the Dark. Along with the change of pace instrumentals, the performance is like none other in the history of rock.

10 The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian

The Contenders

11 Scar Tissue - Red Hot Chili Peppers

The only song by them I actually like!

Best rhcp song of all time.

Best rhcp song of all time!

12 Fortuneteller - Deep Purple
13 Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

My opinion is the song wouldn't play? /_

This should be on the top! So emotional and chillest rock song of all time!

14 Going to California - Led Zeppelin

It is possibly the most underrated Led Zep song if not the most underrated song of all time. This song would be incredible if it was done by a band known for this style of Alt rock, but its done by a band known for long drawn out guitar solos with bits of important lyric. This song show the versatility of the incredible bunch of blokes thought to be as successful as a Led Zeppelin.

Oh man! This song truly implies the versatility of Led Zep, and somehow listening to it, in your mind, takes you to a beautiful, deserted beach, lying, with your head back, with sunshine sprayed all over you.

15 Off He Goes - Pearl Jam

I love whoever put this on here - Songsta41

16 Sympathy - Uriah Heep
17 Fiddler on the Green - Demons & Wizards
18 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

Wish you were here is the ultimate melancholy rock song, it never gets old either.

I thought this song would be in the top 5... But 68!

This song makes you feel like chillin out at a jo sesh

19 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

21 Blinded by Science - Foreigner
22 Ballad of Hollis Brown - Bob Dylan
23 Hotel California - The Eagles

25 A Day In the Life - The Beatles

Woke up, had a smoke...

This song is the very definition of the word mellow.

27 Cancer - My Chemical Romance
28 Karma Police - Radiohead

Should get better rank - pookie

29 Pushing Me Away - Linkin Park

What kind of a list is this?! Pushing me away is no doubt an amazing song but it is certainly NOT mellow! N where the hell is Iridescent?! The mellowest song of Linkin Park! So beautiful...

The live piano solo definitely is what is on this list, Chester sounds amazing in it and this deserves to be higher. - lukestheman4

There was just something in the way

It's a cool story with great music. - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

Mellow folk/rock song from the best band ever. (in my opinion best song ever)

This song is the best mellow song of LP. It's far better than Leave out all the rest. Just listen it once.

50 Solitude - Black Sabbath

Great song that has become a debate for decades whether, as the album says, it was sung by Ozy.
