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!

+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!
