Top Rock Songs of 2011
10) Volbeat's 'Fallen': The Danish hard rockers finally made a name for themselves in the United States after years of mega-popularity in their homeland. Volbeat's first single from 'Beyond Hell/Above Heaven' introduced the band's unique blend of rock, blues, metal, and rockabilly.We get the feeling that Volbeat will be a lot higher up on 'Best of the Year' lists in the future.
1) Seether's 'Country Song': The undisputed champion of 2011 is Seether's 'Country Song' — which was the most played song of the year by a landslide. A country fried hard rock song is probably the furthest thing from a safe bet, but pushing it as their lead single was probably the best move the South African post grungers could've made. 'Holding on to String Better Left to Fray' debuted at #2 on the Billboard Albums Chart, and continues to sell thanks to the powerful chart topping follow up single 'Tonight.' Who would've imagined the #1 rock song of the year would be called 'Country Song?' See what other songs made the list.
