Agreed, this list is just crap... Who is sarah geronimo anyway?... Many song in this list are not well known...  I'm not saying this is the best song but this song clearly deserves higher place. I bet the guy who post sarah geronimo vote her hundreds of time just to have a chick from nowhere in #1. Shame on you.thumbs upthumbs downselect reason:duplicateinaccurateirrelevantlow qualitynon-englishoffensiveplagarismpoor formattingpoor spellingprofanityspamunsupportive+1The best song of the 21st century. Should be first! This list is fail, because half of it are unknown or unpopular songs.thumbs upthumbs downselect reason:duplicateinaccurateirrelevantlow qualitynon-englishoffensiveplagarismpoor formattingpoor spellingprofanityspamunsupportiveLP rules this should be 3 and Breaking The Habit 2 there should definitely be more Linkin Park songs on this list!

One of the first truly amazing songs I had ever listened to... And Evanescence just keeps getting better.

+2BEST SONG EVER! it's so amazing and it really does express Amy Lee and it shows her amazing capability to write the best music she can! Besides this song, there's also "My Immortal" and "Hello" which are also amazing songs by Evanescence and those, and this song, are a must!

Jared Leto is awesome.. He's a great singer.. I her him singing live.. His voice is so beautiful.. I love all of their songsthumbs upthumbs downselect reason:duplicateinaccurateirrelevantlow qualitynon-englishoffensiveplagarismpoor formattingpoor spellingprofanityspamunsupportive+3this song tells about your internal battle, in the most real way. there are no songs like this, it teaches you the reality, helps you accepting who you r, tells you that THERE'S NO WRONG TO BE DIFFERENT.+1I just love this song. It is an inspirational song with a stong meaning. The singer Jared Leto, his brother Shanon Leto(drummer) and Tomo Milicevic and Matt Wachter(Guitarists) made a perfect song. All in all 30 Secons to Mars is a great band with all great songs and the song The Kill is one of the best and deserves to be in this top 10 of the songs of the 21st Century!
