The Top Ten

The Kill
Fantastic song... I'm crying when I listen to it beacuse of how good it is...
Never get tired of hearing this. This is the second song that I heard from the band and I fell in love with it already
You Will Never Ever Get Bored Of This Song Its So Beautiful And very Understanding... The Video Is Great And The Opening And Ending Is So Beautiful It Deserve To Be No. 1 The Kill Rocks...
[Newest]This was the first 30 Seconds to Mars song I heard, and I was hooked after the first 30 seconds (no pun intended). Absolutely amazing song.

2Closer to the Edge
One word - AmAzInG! really can't get bored of this song! the video is too good to miss as well
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 song is amazing. Like I can listen to it all day and it won't get old. Plus the lyrics, they're beautiful. :')
[Newest]Tears of joy I will kill for this guy

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
[Newest]One of the most amazing songs ever... Very appropriate for the current times!
More comments about This Is War

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...
[Newest]"this is my favourite song currently ", I've been saying this to my friends for about 3-4 years now. I'm not sure what I feel when I'm listening to it but it's amazing.

5Kings 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!
[Newest]This song is a killer
More comments about Kings and Queens

6A 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 :)
[Newest]This song that got me hooked with 30 Seconds to Mars. Lyrics has such depth meaning. Composition was great and I can feel this song. I keep listening to 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!


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
[Newest]The kill has position number 1 which this song deserves

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~!
[Newest]Attack make me crazy every time I listen

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
[Newest]Best song that 30 Seconds To Mars ever made

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
[Newest]Epic and amazing song. Every way awesome.

The Contenders

11Up In the Air
Forget about everything just listen to this revolutionary electronic rock hit for me this ones on#1 position... )


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

12Do 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!
[Newest]Full of hope and it is not something you can find in every song

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

14Vox 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.
[Newest]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.

15City 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


[Newest]This song is beautiful! I probably listen to it every day I love it! Great beat and lyrics, started my love for 30 seconds to mars, it's the best in my opinion!

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.
[Newest]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.
[Newest]I won't hold it against anyone if they're deaf or never heard of this unbelievable song, but I really want everyone to vote for Welcome to the Universe!

18The 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.


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.
[Newest]This a Beautiful music!

It's not about a song over others, we have our own songs for each perfect moment, you choose what you want, we are in democracy. I remember listening to this song in an special moment, and it linked to me forever, that's why I love this song and "Oblivion".
If you listening to this song when you feel like you can't make a choice or move on, it will link to you for eternity, it will be there for you when you need it, and it will give you those sweet words your soul really needs to hear.

It's a song about living and the risk you take when you live, about taking choices, making mistakes, quest, etc, it doesn't matter what happens you keep going always till you wake up in some other reality... and then you keep going.
So no one has ever listened to this song, huh? Whenever I remember something sad and listen to this song, I just break down, feel like I wanna kill myself. It's probably the last one here but in my heart it's undeniably the best song.
Alibi is easily my favorite song by 30 Seconds to Mars, and certainly one of my all time favorite musical pieces. A very powerful song.
[Newest]Simply amazing, it helps me get through a rough day and it is really inspiring

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

Look at all the weak fallen men voting for This Is War songs over this classic!
I'm addicted to this song!
Night Of The Hunter ahead of this? Facepalm. Ah well, there's nothing we can do anymore. All these new Mars fans have taken over, sadly.
[Newest]Way better than anything on their next 3 albums apart from Was it a Dream?

22End 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

23100 Suns
What the hell! I don't believe it this is their best song and it should at least be in the top three; you can see true singing ability in this song and his voice takes you somewhere when you listen to it. Sad that it's only two minutes.
This is such a short and sweet song! How is it 50th? I'm not saying that this song is their best, but it most certainly deserves to be in a higher position that it is now.
This song gets to you. Come on! Guys it deserves to be in top 10.
[Newest]Not the best but should be top 10

BEST SONG EVER! Unique lyrics, Unique melody, Unique performance...
I'm so depressed about the fact that they don't play it regularly in their shows... (let's say never... )
On of the rather song that guitar is the best than drums and voice from band
This is one of the best songs mars have EVER made! Along with savior. 24? Yeah, no.
[Newest]100 suns beat R-Evolution? WHAT? R-Evolution is the best

25Buddha For Mary
The reason I fell in love with 30 Seconds to Mars. The sound is totally unique- it's grungy, sexy and weird but totally epic. Should definitely be in the top 10, at least.
Closer to the Edge and This is War on 2nd and 3rd? Oh come on... they are good for having some fun in a crowd, but musically there are better songs. Like THIS one...
WOW! Hurricane, Night Of The Hunter etc ahead of this? Have you people even LISTENED to the first album. I suggest you do so, ASAP.

such an amazing song... could listen to it over and over again and never get tired of it...
This is absolutely my favorite song by 30 seconds to mars some people might not like but even so whats this epic song doing down around the thirties I'm mean some people might not like it but not this much! It should be at least in the top 10 not way down here holy smokes!
what the hell man... this should be at least in top 5 it's such a greatest song I've ever listened, just give it a try, I just can't get enough of it
[Newest]Just read the lyrics the think

Brilliant song, great energy. With End of the Beginning, Fallen and Echelon my favorite songs of this pretty damn good album! Everybody run now...
Amazing most people don't vote for it because they never heard it just try it's awesome!
You kidding me? How is this not in the top 5?

28The Story
The story its a such a epic song with good lyrics and vocals. I just love how mellow it is and can't believe that its all the way in 27 it should be number two, right next to the kill honestly people what are you thinking! Listen to the sample and you'll know what I mean
This is really the best song of 30 seconds to mars
Awesome lyrics
Awesome music
Awesome singing
It has got nice feelings
This is severely underrated song
They should have released this song as a single


How is this not in the top 20!? "And I swear to god I'll find myself in the end... " VOTE!
[Newest]Such an amazing song!

DON'T SAVE ME DON'T SAVE ME CAUSE I DON'T CARE! This song is awesome, kick ass. My favourite song, I love the beat.
Hell Yeah this is a hectic song! Anyone who hasn't heard it should deffs give it a go.

3093 Million Miles
Why is this song not higher ranked, oh my god. This is slower, but a fantastic song.
This song is what 30 Seconds to Mars used to stand for.
Beautiful lyrics. Jared show in this song that he can sing anyway he want

31Bright Lights
Just like Do Or Die full of hope
This is the best song ever!

I just don't have words for this song. This is like Mars at their extreme or what? The lyrics are so true to their nature "We will, we will, we will rise again. " I wasn't that satisfied with Up In The Air but Conquistador is PLAIN AWESOME!
Conquistador has fantastic drums, a soaring guitar piece, and is my personal favorite song of 30 Seconds to Mars.


This song is amazing, you want to hear a really good rock song. THIS IS THE ONE YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.

33Battle of One
This song is metal and it beats 90% of the songs off This Is War, should be in the top 15.
, I didn't know they have this song. I just checked it and fall into it immediately.30 seconds to mars is truly a talented and versatile band. I love this band even more than before. The Kill is surely #1 without a doubt, and this song deserves to be top 10 in this list.
Top song, just the best.

34Was It a Dream?
My ultimate 30 seconds to mars guilty pleasure song, it's not the best, but far from the worst. I enjoy listening to the compelling lyrics and it's a good song for a rainy day!
epic! listen to it immediately! top 10-15.
A very beautiful song indeed... deserves to be much higher in this list...

35A Modern Myth
A Song Of the Most Deepest Meaning that it clutches You deep Down In The Core And Whispers Softly ( PUT ME ON REPLAY)

Oh my god, this song is just amazing. Should be in the top ten without question! Listen to it and VOTE!

Epic instrumentals... A great intro to the new album!
Assassin's creed rogue made it a soundtrack

37Stranger In a Strange Land
Can't understand why this song is so unknown... This song is so EPIC. Clear closer to the edge or the kill are much better but with such an genial instrumental part this song should be under the top 10! Its just GODLIKE (y)
Don't throw anything on me please but 1) this song is in my top 5 along with kill, attack, battle of one and echelon 2) this song utterly reminds me song named "scoundrel days" by A-Ha for some weird reason...
This song is amazing, just listen to it and you will be addicted!

38End of the Beginning
End of the Beginning needs to way higher on this list at least top ten this song is incredible.
NO WAY should this song be below the top 10 Jared's amazing vocals and guitar mixed with Shannon's drums and tomo's bass is PERFECTION!
END OF THE BEGINNING breathtaking song I guess judging by this list I'm an original 30 SECONDS TO MARS fans love their debut album. End of the Beginning best song ever!
[Newest]Speed of drums is perfect in this song. Should be in top 10

39The Race
Way better than 39, I am angry
On of the hardest songs of Love Lust Fait + Dreams


41Year Zero
I really love this song and I don;t like seeing it this low down! I think most of 30 Seconds' songs are amazing and I agree with The Kill being first but Year Zero is AWESOME! It has to beat all the songs from This Is War! Debut Album was the best.

42Northern Lights
This is simply the best song on the new album. It's just so amazing, full of emotions.
My favourite from the new album, but pyres of varanasi is close
A song to remember!

43Praying for a Riot

44Phase 1: Fortification

45Hurricane 2.0

I love this song! So sad that seems like no one has notice it! The lyrics are very crude and if you like heavy rock this ones for you.

47Occam's Razor

48Where the Streets Have No Name
Hearing the original then this version WOW, this song truly brings out Jareds vocals, I am disappointed that this isn't in the list
Amazing song cover! Better than the original!

I thought I knew all the mars songs! Jared really shows off his vocals in this song. great stuff!

Really good song... Just try it ones..

51Pyres of Varanasi
What? This song goes alright, what is it doing this far down? This version is slightly fast paced though.

53City of Angels (Hardwell Remix)


55Under Pressure
Best of the unreleased songs




59Save Me

60Anarchy In Tokyo

61Santa Through the Back Door
