No big issue with the list, though I'm not sure The Fox makes a perfect #1, being probably their noisiest song. One More Hour would have been a more representative pick as the epitome of their style (even for a band that changed that much from an album to the next).
I'd rank Entertain and Jumpers on the top 10, Turn it On, Fade, Price Tag and Rollercoaster higher but they have a lot of great songs anyway.
