10. Linkin Park, 'Burn It Down'

Rap-rock isn't exactly burning up the charts these days. In many ways, Linkin Park are the genre's sole survivors, largely because they've been willing to evolve and grow with every album. Their newest disc Living Things landed this summer and debuted at the top of the charts with 223,000 sales in the first week. Their first single, "Burn It Down," peaked at Number 30 on the Hot 100, but it's done very well on what's left of modern rock radio.
