3. (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones
This iconic classic rock song from The Rolling Stones is the heart of songs about satisfaction. This song is about searching for satisfaction because no satisfaction is being met. It is basically about a guy blowing it with the ladies, which I find hilarious because he is complaining about his weak game.
Overall, the message of this song is not meaningful or deep; it is simply about a dumb guy being dumb, which I think many people can relate to, nonetheless. However, that is not why this song is iconic.
In fact, this song is iconic for its vocal and musical elements. The musical aspects of this song involve some great and catchy guitar playing, which is one of the key elements that make this song instantly recognizable to many listeners.

I can see why this song is often chosen for a first dance at weddings; it is romantically and dreamily composed!
It is a “Perfect” song for anyone deeply in love and truly satisfied with their relationship.
1. In The End by Linkin Park
In a recent interview, Mike Shinoda clarified that any sort of Chester Bennington Hologram would be unsettling. As the biggest Linkin Park fan on the earth, I can’t help but agree because Chester Bennington was one of a kind singer, and their song, “In The End,” supports that statement.
One of the biggest songs they have released, “In The End,” is about not being satisfied with someone. The lyrics reveal how a person has let you down so often that you are at a point when you are entirely and angrily unsatisfied with them. This is a powerful song as it reveals that despite all the efforts to maintain the relationship, it does not matter because they are a terrible person.
Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda’s collaboration on this song is among the best in the music industry. Chester Bennington’s vocals are amazing! He sings with so much frustration, anger, and disappointment that you can feel the resentment within his vocals.
It is truly an emotionally triggering song. As for Mike Shinoda, his rapping is superb! He raps the perfectly composed lyrics with anger and frustration, ultimately matching Chester Bennington’s emotional output.
Now let’s talk about the beat and melody of the song. I love nu-metal for what it has to offer. Combining techno and rock resources makes a powerful and hard melody that ideally embraces intense and powerful lyrics.
Overall, this song is number on this list of songs about satisfaction because Linkin Park perfectly expresses how they are angry and unsatisfied with the person they are singing about. This song is beyond perfect, from the singing and rapping to the lyrics and musical structure.
