20. Walking Disaster – Sum 41
This is one of the only songs I have genuinely got emotional watching live, and honestly, I don’t know why. There’s just something in this song that touches me, and I love it.

19. When You Were Young – The Killers
I have loved this song ever since I first heard it, and will probably continue to love it for the rest of my life.It’s catchy, emotional, and by far some of Brandon Flowers’ best work.

18. Starlight – Muse
The first Muse song I loved, this is an absolute anthem for the band. From the beautiful piano intro to the ‘Black Holes And Revelations’ refrain, this song just makes me happy.

17. Sic Transit Gloria (Glory Fades) – Brand New
This is one of the most unnerving, creepy songs I’ve ever heard. I love it because it takes a theme a lot of music talks about, taking a girl back to your house, and turns it on it’s head. It’s creepy, unsettling, and utterly brilliant.

16. Pack Of Thieves – Enter Shikari
This is one of Enter Shikari’s more melodic songs and I love it. The chorus is intense, but full of melody, and it’s a testament to just how good this band is.

15. Semi-Charmed Life – Third Eye Blind
I’ve picked this song for no other reason than it just makes me happy. The melody and guitar blend together to make this the perfect singalong song.

14. Spanish Sahara – Foals
I first found this when I was playing the video game Life Is Strange. The song played through a tragic ending scene and this song was perfect for it, slowly building up into a beautiful crescendo. I listen to this when I’m sad and at least for the duration of the song, I feel a little better.

13. When I Come Around – Green Day
This song has a special place in my heart because I performed it with my girlfriend at an open mic night, but I also thing it’s an incredible song. There’s something about the melody that just gets into your head, and stays there.
Find it on: Dookie (1994)
12. Getting Along – Royal Republic
Simply put, this is the most catchy song I have ever heard. The chorus is incredible, and it shows just how good Royal Republic are at writing great songs.
Find it on: Weekend Man (2016)
11. No Way Out – As It Is
As well as being incredibly catchy, the monologue in the middle of this song is incredibly emotional. Singer Patty Walters pours his heart out on this one, and it makes it one of the most raw, honest songs I’ve ever heard.
