2Closer to the Edge

One word - AmAzInG! really can't get bored of this song! the video is too good to miss as well

This song is amazing. Like I can listen to it all day and it won't get old. Plus the lyrics, they're beautiful. :')

I don't know what to say about this song and 30 Seconds to Mars! Words can't describe it! I feel like Closer To The Edge is the greatest song ever made and that 30 Seconds to Mars is the greatest band ever! Proud being an Echelon! Love you Jared, Shannon and Tomo! You guys changed my life.

This is the song that got me hooked on the group!

3This Is War

one of the best songs ever I seriously recommend this to all people to listen to it we really have to end war before war end us but too bad war will never end. War is a characteristic of humans and as long as humans exist´╗┐ so will the war...

One of the best 3STM songs next to The Kill in my opinion. The thing about 3STM that I love so much is their versatility- they're great whether we listen to their softer stuff, like Hurricane (Without the rap guy), or harder stuff, like Edge of the Earth.

This song and its lyrics are just EPIC, I listened to this song on the Dragon Age Origins trailer and it just made me shiver

Couldn't agree more with the lyrics

4A Beautiful Lie

This song rocks! A beautiful lie Album is the best album made by 30 seconds to MARS.

I definitely agree with the guy below me, A Beautiful Lie is the best album! And this is pretty much the theme of the album! I love the intro!

beautiful lie should be no 1 because it deserves that place I think closer to the edge is a bit over rated :)

It's a good song and it's also sang for a good course definitely a top 3

I have been listening to this song for the last three days. Listened it for more than 70-80 times and still counting. Such a raw vocal and beautiful lyrics. Who needs dope when you have stuff like this. I am totally immersed into it.

I could listen to Hurricane over and over again, I think it's an amazing piece of music!

Immersion is a good word to describe what you feel... I'm so overwhelmed by feelings, shocked, and moved deeply into my very body every time I'm listening to it...

You can't get tired of listening to this song. Ever.

6Kings and Queens

Just has so much emotion an you never get tired of hearing it! I love hearing Shannon drum in this one and Tomo is also very good! No one can't beat Jared Leto's vocals!

An amazing song! One of the best I've ever heard its so powerful! LOVE IT SO MUCH!

The vocals are so deep and the song is emotional in itself. This should definitely be in the top 5 songs. I never get tired listening to it!

Sends chills down your spine. That's it.

7From Yesterday

Top three! One of the greatest songs of 30STM!
I love this song, lots of energy there! VOTE right here!

Oh no its imposible! This song is completely great it would be on 1st place. The lyrics are amazing. FROM YESTERDAY! - thetwn

It can get you hooked to it just with a first time listen, definitely a song that needs to be in at least the 3rd position o-o

This is just me, but this song reminds of Pokemon and I have no idea why

V42 Comments

Totally agree this should be one of the top three. Excellent CD! All their songs are great but this one stands along side of The Kill!

I LOVE this song... but seeing that I love just about every song on this list, it was a pretty hard choice. wish I could vote for all of them

This song is amazing. It's my never give up song! When this is on I can run a marathon and feel like I can take on a tiger (haven't tried it yet).
This should be 4th at least or higher!
You guys should try listening to this, SERIOUSLY~!

When I start listening to this song, I can't stop. - Donut

9Edge of the Earth

Are you kidding me? Edge of the earth is undoubtedly the best 30 Seconds to Mars song! The pure aggression in the voice of Jared Leto combined with the heavy guitar and powerful drums make this the most awesome 30 Seconds to Mars song ever!

No way this is one of the best songs ever released by TSTM. The music is fantastic and the ending is awesome. This song should be on top of the list

GUYS! This song should be in the top position... This track really doesn't deserve the 4th position... Please vote for it... Just listen to it... I assure! You won't regret

In my opinion the best song this band has ever made. I'll never get tired of it and it's still as good today as the day it was released.

10Night of the Hunter

This song proves that 30 STM has got a great taste in Pop apart from Rock and Heavy Metal. Some great music and lyrics make this song fantastic.

Awesome song. Really rejuvenates your soul. The part where Jared sings "One night of... " is the USP of the song. Best 30 STM songs for pop lovers.

Aside from the awesome uniqueness of the beat, the lyrics in this song are one of the best I've ever heard in one or their songs. They're really vague, but they get you thinking. Listen if you haven't:) also jared's vocals are great in this song too

A relative directed the movie The Night Of The Hunter. If you want to catch that whole dark Louisiana vibe in one incredibly sexual piece of music... There you have it.

The Contenders

11Do or Die

This song is so motivating. It's really about living your life to the fullest and enjoying the memories you've made. It's a really amazing song and the lyrics are genius, it's so fun to sing along to as well.

It's songs like this that make me love this band. I love the positive message of this song. This song is all about following your dreams no matter what

I just came across this band, listened to this song and thought Wow! I expected it to be #1 turns out it's all the way down to #36. So underrated!

Another great song from jared,. Cool

12Up In the Air

I think this is the band's most accomplished song and establishes that they are a great rock and roll band. I therefore think its their best song. Hopefully others realise this soon.

In my opinion this is their best song! So please vote all for it to be in first 10 at least if not number 1!
~~30 seconds to mars fan to life

Forget about everything just listen to this revolutionary electronic rock hit for me this ones on#1 position... ) - vishwarajvithuvivi

Up In the Air is the best. Drums is perfect. Song must be in top 5. Best song of their new album

13Vox Populi

This is such an inspirational and moving song. It's a call for everyone who has ever believed in something to stand together and fight for what they believe in. It really defines the band, and is one of my all time favourite 30 Seconds to Mars song!

WHY IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10? ! THIS ROCKS, AND DESERVES AT LEAST NUMBER 3! I totally find this song better than over half of the other songs on the top 10 list. THe Kill is great, no doubt, but it's like any other song. Vox Populi is different, and I LOVE the populace singing in the background.

It has such an inspirational feel with the upbeat tempo and battle cry chorus. Jared belts it out, Tomo accents on guitar, and Shannon does his thing. This is 30 Seconds to Mars at their best.

Definitely is in my top 5. It's a song that is so inspirational and is less of a song, and more of a fighter's anthem and it's unbelievably amazing.

14City of Angels

I think it's Number 1, purely because it speaks of something more than practically any Mars song I've heard. It's about finding your dreams and hope and that one place where you feel surrounded by magic and the people around you will never be your enemies, they'll only be your closest friends and it's about re-discovery and re-discovering yourself or even just discovering yourself, and I think that's incredibly powerful. Oh, and it's about Los Angeles and I love L. A!

For me it number 1! It's so amazing!

This song a token me by storm because ever since I first discovered this song I've been unable to stop listening to this Beautiful song!

I mena it you've really got to take a moment and listen to this song because the whole song is amazing and Jared can hit those notes and his Voice is a beauty!

I Am HOME... Home - Curti2594

Best one till date

Brilliant guitar riffs, amazing vocals, and the video's outta the world... Jeez, I'm surprised Capricorn's not ON THE TOP!

The First Song To Graze The Ears Of 30 Seconds Fans And We All Still Love it! -

Oh man, this song is EPIC, much more than Hurricane or even Kings and Queens. The Kill deserves the top, but Capricorn deserves, at least, the #6.

This is a surprisingly good song from a band I don't care much about. I like it a lot! - NuMetalManiak

16Search and Destroy

One word: intensity. The first time I heard it, I felt a tugging at my very soul the chorus is a true battle cry, and embodies the theme of the album perfectly in just two measures.

I can't understand why this song is number 30!? it MUST get higher, NOW! it is one of my all time favourites.

One of the best vocals I've heard in a long time.

Played live is just amazing

17Welcome to the Universe

The lyrics alone are enough to place this in the top 10! This should have been a single, if only it was a bit longer.

"You wait in the palid slivered sky, come into the pantheoon. Welcome to the universe. Welcome to the universe! "


The feeling of this song can't compare with others 30 Seconds to Mars songs, in my point. The chords, harmony, the melodic guitar and the lyrics of Jared at the end.. Just like a masterpiece.

What the hell! This song should be on the top ten chart

18End of All Days

This is the most truthful song about life. Great piano and use of synths. Lyrics and timbre are amazing. Jared really gets his God damn point across. Best singing I've heard him do live or studio!

This song is amazing! People need to give it the attention it deserves, truly a beautiful song, definitely in my top 5 favorite Mars songs! Please check it out guys!

Jared use hard and strong lyric for this song that is why this song is unique

Just amazing and beautiful. Best song ever!

19The Fantasy

Really cool song. It's very relatable. Doing anything to accomplish your wildest dreams and your greatest hopes is something that everyone can tell a story about. - edtheiii

This number must be on nr. 1! This is an awesome song!
I think that this song is cooler than The Kill, because you can sing with the song and it has a tekst that you can follow without many screaming or something... I THIS SONG!

"SAY IT, SAY IT, SAY THAT YOU BELIEVE! " I don't believe this website, some of the songs above this makes me laugh out loud. Ah well.

This a Beautiful music!

20The Mission

The Mission is my favorite song ever thus being that in my opinion it's the best song ever! I wish 30 seconds to mars made a video to this so more fans could hear it!

What YOU GUYS SUCK THIS SONG IS THE GREATEST THIS POLL ISN'T ACCURATE. The opening itself beats most of these songs... And then the chorus? To die for.

Simply after Edge Of Earth the best song of their first song
