"Dammit" was blink-182's first break into the mainstream. After being featured in the movie 'Can't Hardly Wait' it peaked number 14 in the Billboard Modern Rock Charts. The song is the classic story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl. The song then takes a twist, he decides that he can't sit around and be sad about the past and just move on with his life or "guess this is growing up!" Everyone has felt that way before. Not to mention how insanely catchy this song is!
This is a great, up-beat song with interesting lyrics. The song is about Maroon 5's lead singer Adam Levine's confusion and frustration with the politics of the United States and the American's role in the war in Iraq.
This song is really amazing, expecially when you're feeling a bit down: it reminds you that you're not alone in feeling like that, and that it's not the end of the world. It's so good at this, that the Samaritans used it in one of their campaigns.
This is one of the first songs by Daughtry that I downloaded. I became a big fan immediately after seeing Chris Daughtry on American Idol. The song has powerful lyrics that people from age one to 100 will love.
Great rhythm, great lyrics, great song! This Songs in the Key of Life track is so catchy and rhythmic, you will keep singing the "La La La" bit days after you heard it. And besides, Stevie Wonder totally Rocks!
Good 4 The Goose is an interesting song from (now defunct) Eden's Crush. It was released in 2001, and co-written by Fergie. The band seems to have since disappeared from the mainstream for the most part.
This was Springsteen's first top 10 hit. This song explores a man's wanderlust contrasted with his desire for a stable family life. Many of Springsteen's songs are about wanting to get away, and in this song the main character concludes that he does not want to be alone.
This song, although said to be simple in many guitar circles, was the proud and loud anthem of a new generation and was largely responsible, along with the rest of the "Nevermind" album, with bringing grunge to mainstream music, if not for a short, limited run. Kurt's overdriven double-tracked guitar, Novoselic's subtle, but powerful bass, and Grohl's steady rhythms, combined with the mumbling and screaming of Cobain's voice, and the nonsensical lyrics make for a song that will not be forgotten soon. I just can't believe it hasn't been nominated as of yet.
This song won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group in 1982. They also topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks. Famously (or infamously) sung by Ben Stiller in the movie Night at the Museum.
Musical and lyrical, one or the other or both, this song is great. Sure to become a classic. A great piano riff. simple but awesome drum beat. Nice guitars in the background. And on top of all that, it's lyrics are great.
For me it's one of the best songs in the whole world. It tells such a touching story. And it's technical brilliant: first the slow part, then very fast and at the end the slow part again. It's a song, you love the first time you hear it. And you will never stop to love that song.
This song is breathtakingly cool the first time you hear it. The ominous, slow bells that begin, the quick, snappy electro beat that begins the song, and then the awe-inspiring Yngwie Malmsteen-styled solo that shatters through it. Then, after you've had your behind handed to you from that, they cool it down to end with a totally different electro beat.
This song is from the Christmas movie The Polar Express. It won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media in 2006. This is a Christmas song, so it will have to be the SOTD on December 25, 2007.
