No. 8: Coldplay, ‘Viva La Vida’ (2008)
It seems like every song Coldplay releases turns into an international hit. Somehow, they’re able to transmogrify nearly every catchy tune, deep lyric and creative idea into a song that has something for everyone. And despite some legal problems with famed rock guitarist Joe Satriani, Coldplay still managed to hit it hard at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards and rocked the crowd with 'Viva La Vida.' The performance is fantastic and shows exactly why Coldplay was one of the biggest bands around then and has sustained that title today.
