Loudwire has debuted its choices for the top 50 hard rock songs of the 21st Century thus far, factoring in "creative influence, originality, radio play, fan reaction, relative importance and pure awesomeness" into their decision making process.

 

Ultimately choosing System of a Down's "Chop Suey!" for the top spot, the list includes bands like Creed and Canadian rockers Nickelback while failing to recognize acts like The Black Keys and Radiohead, which has angered some readers.

 

"Nickelback is the second most god awful band EVER!! Second only to Creed!!," one reader wrote in response to the Alberta band's track "How You Remind Me" coming in at number 30 on the list. "I've lost all faith in America," another commenter added.

 

Ontario alternative rockers Three Days Grace also made the list coming in at number 45 with their 2006 single, "Animal I Have Become," which was written by lead singer Adam Gontier about his addiction to painkillers while in rehab.

 

Rounding out the top five on Loudwire's countdown is Tool's "Schism" in fifth position, Nirvana's "You Know You're Right" at number four, Evanescence's "Bring Me To Life" in third, Linkin Park's "In The End" in second place and System of a Down's "Chop Suey!" at number one.

 

"It's a very, schizophrenic song," System of a Down's lead singer Serj Tankian said of the 2001 track. "It's the last song you would ever expect to be on the radio at the time that it was [released], but it had this beautiful chorus that people related to."

 

Loudwire's choice to include Nirvana's 1994 track "You Know You're Right" on its 21st century list has also come under some reader's scrutiny given the timeline. However, its place was justified by the online music magazine who stated that even though it was recorded in the 90s, it was not officially released until 2002.

Wake up Grab a brush and put a little, makeup Hide the scars to fade away the, shakeup (Hide the scars to fade away the) Why'd you leave the keys upon the table? Here you go create another fable

You wanted to Grab a brush and put a little makeup You wanted to Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup You wanted to Why'd you leave the keys upon the table? You wanted to

I don't think you trust In my self righteous suicide I cry when angels deserve to die

Wake up Grab a brush and put a little, makeup Hide the scars to fade away the, shakeup (Hide the scars to fade away the) Why'd you leave the keys upon the table? Here you go create another fable

You wanted to Grab a brush and put a little makeup You wanted to Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup You wanted to Why'd you leave the keys upon the table You wanted to

I don't think you trust In my self righteous suicide I cry when angels deserve to die In my self righteous suicide I cry when angels deserve to die

Father, father, father, father Father into your hands, I commend my spirit Father into your hands Why have you forsaken me?

In your eyes forsaken me In your thoughts forsaken me In your heart forsaken me, oh

Trust in my self righteous suicide I cry when angels deserve to die In my self righteous suicide I cry when angels deserve to die

Good shit man

LOL Really P-Man, I made it half way through a 4 year old song and was wondering what you thought was hot? I'm not into dudes, but I guess that's what you like to see in a video. :lol:
