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!

Good God, this is incredibly hard to do! I will give you that Aenema is a great song, but one of the best ones I've heard by Tool is Eulogy. Stinkfist and Hooker With a Penis also rock my world. I love Tool... /fangirl

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

People, pretty many of the songs you write down are not really MODERN rock tracks!

Lith, I think he meant "modern" in the context of era rather than the specific type of rock.

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)
Stone Temple Pilots - Plush (HELL YEAH!)
Alice In Chains - Man In The Box
Soundgarden - The Day I Tried To Live
Velvet Revolver - Slither (I really think this one will be a classic)
Creed - My Own Prison
Audioslave - Shadow On The Sun

Vote for the Aowe Kino Dutch All Time Hot 100
You have to fill in
Your name
Your e-mail address
Your Top 10

Thanks for the attention.

PS Translation for the non-Dutch readers

You can choose songs from the songlist with almost 1000 examples on the right of the voting page, click on ‘noa lies’ to add a song to your Top 10, or you can enter your own choice of song. With the + and – besides the entry-fields you can move the songs up or down.

The button ‘isjikke’ will forward your finished top 10, the button ‘op nuj’ means ‘start over’ and can be used if you want to correct the list, it will erase all songs in the top 10.

So go to http://www.aowekino.nl/nl/page00023.asp to cast your vote and enter your Top 10.
