This is BS looks like some cards fell into the hands of 10 year olds walking around Toys R Us again example 311 is in this list

My first reaction was what is this the Razzies list for worse song.

Certainly a ****ed up list with no credit.

Aside from Good Charlote, Limp Bizkit, Sum 41, Puddle of Mudd, Creed, Evanesence, and Papa Roach, this list has a good variety of bands.

The top 20 is ok.

i was about to comment on its absence. I heard somewhere that this was considered to be the single greatest rock song of all time. And who ever decided this is correct, this song is untouchable at the #! slot.

It's funny how nu-metal wannabes Linkin Park appear more times in the list than The Clash, I hope somebody gets fired for this monstrosity

was this voted on or picked by someone? Because it looks a highly selective and narrow view of rock music. And what the heck does 'modern' mean? 20 years? And no way would Pearl Jam be number one. Thats just ridiculous.

The radio station picked the songs. And im pretty sure "modern" means 80's-present, seeing bands like U2 and The Clash. And, i dont even think Alive is Pearl Jams best song. I would say Corduroy is (#174).

The only good thing about the list is some of the rare bands and unknown songs. Like the Toadies, Violent Femmes, Blind Melon, Pixies. Also seeing "El Scorcho" by Weezer made me happy.

I hate "Modern Rock". I think that it is music for gays or just "slow" people. NuMetal is the best. Limp Bizkit rulezzzz!!!!

If you still listen to Limp Bizkit, then you're the one who's slow.
