The Best Modern Rock Song?
I was pondering... What do you all think is the best modern rock song (probably 1990-present)? It's gotta be just fucking epic in its ability to rock and every component of the song has to be top-of-the-line.
Now this isn't necessarily your favorite song... Just what you think the "best" overall is. I don't mean "best" as in it means emotional attachment to you, just the best written and best performed modern rock song.
I have to cast my vote for Aenema by Tool. I don't love everything they've put out, but this song is FUCKING AMAZING! :jam:
Here's some of my faves:
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
Creed - Higher
Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name
Aerosmith - Love In An Elevator
Disturbed - Down With The Sickness
Faktion - 7 Days
Sevendust - Enemy
Linkin Park - Faint
Nickelback - How You Remind Me
Metallica - I Disappear
Saliva - Rest In Pieces
Seventh Day Slumber - I Know
I'll think of more later.
Sweet Child O' Mine ~ Guns N' Roses
Higher ~ Creed
Minerva ~ Deftones
Shine ~ Collective Soul
Show Me How to Live ~ Audioslave
Eulogy ~ Tool
Hunger Strike ~ Temple of the Dog
Plush ~ Stone Temple Pilots
It's Been Awhile ~ Staind
Black Hole Sun ~ Soundgarden
Eden ~ The Mayfield Four
Ain't Coming Home ~ Silvertide
Alive, Black, Jeremy & Yellow Ledbetter ~ Pearl Jam
Anything Right ~ P.O.D. *this is prolly the equivalent of "I Know" by 7thDS
Somewhere Out There ~ Our Lady Peace
Paradigm Shift, Kindred Spirits, Freedom of Speech & Universal Mind ~ Liquid Tension Experiment
My Hero ~ Foo Fighters
Epic ~ Faith No More
that's one long list there....
Others I can think of off the top of my head:
Immortality -- Pearl Jam
Love, Hate, Love, Down In a Hole -- Alice In Chains
Say Hello to Heaven -- Temple of the Dog
Birth Ritual, Seasons -- Soundgarden
Nirvana -- Something (in the way)
Minister/Medicine Woman -- Floater
Magdalena, Thinking of You, Pet -- A Perfect Circle
Far Behind ~ Candlebox... forgot that one
People, pretty many of the songs you write down are not really MODERN rock tracks!
we're going by Hellboy's definition, 1990 to the present
Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns ~ Mother Love Bone
Faith No More EPIC :jam:
Well, since other people are giving lists, I'll give some more what I believe to be definitive modern rock songs.
Everlong - Foo Fighters (probably the best written rock song of the last 15 years)

Alice In Chains - Man In The Box
Soundgarden - The Day I Tried To Live

Well on my list would be:
Tool - Eulogy

Nickelback - How you remind me
Live - I alone
Creed - Higher

Alanis Morissette - You oughta know
K's Choice - Not an addict
