The Top Ten

1
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...

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. :')

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

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 :)

5Hurricane
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...

6From 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

7Edge 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

8Kings 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!

9Attack
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~!

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

The Contenders

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

vishwarajvithuvivi

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
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.

12Welcome 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! "
WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSE IS THE GREATEST SONG EVER NUMBER ONE ON MY PLAYLIST AND IT SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE ON THIS LIST... I don't KNOW WHAT A LIBERTINE OR A PANTHEON IS, BUT I LOVE THIS SONG! EVERYONE NEEDS TO LISTEN TO 30 SECONDS TO MARS DEBUT ALBUM BEFORE VOTING FOR THIS IS WAR SONGS!
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.

13Capricorn
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.

14The 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!
One of my absolute favourites. This song is as most of you would have guessed about sex. The instrumental is very good and the chorus is catchy and memorable, oh and the screams are epic as always!

15Do or Die
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!
This song it's my favorite song from their new record.
What the hell this cool song deserves to be in the top 5

16R-Evolve
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... )
Based on the just sample provided here, this song deserves to be in the top 10 EASILY. Just listen to it, "DOES IT FEEL LIKE WE'VE NEVER BEEN ALIVE? DOES IT SEEM LIKE ITS ONLY JUST BEGUN? " is sung by Jared whilst Shannon is destroying those drums, then Tomo kicks in with the guitar riff. This song is perfection.

lewis

This song is awesome, every Mars fan needs to listen to this, the lyrics are great, the vocals are superb, the guitar play and drumming are awesome, very underrated, should be AT LEAST in the top 10. Vox Populi 11 places ahead of this? Laugh out loud, you serious?

17Fallen
Look at all the weak fallen men voting for This Is War songs over this classic!
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.
I'm addicted to this song!
Listen to sample

18Vox Populi
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.
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.
Stomp your feet and clap till you drop.

19The 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.
Listen to sample

20Search 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.
One of the best vocals I've heard in a long time.
I can't understand why this song is number 30!? it MUST get higher, NOW! it is one of my all time favourites.

21City of Angels

Awesome song awesome music video awesome band

22The 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

soumildutta

How is this not in the top 20!? "And I swear to god I'll find myself in the end... " VOTE!

23Echelon
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

24Buddha For Mary
I don't know how to describe...
this song is crazy and there are a few things I don't undstand.
there are so much questions but I thinkthats exactly jared wanted.
anyway I can't forget this song. Love it!
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...
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.

25Alibi
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.

29100 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.

30Battle of One
This song is metal and it beats 90% of the songs off This Is War, should be in the top 15.
Top song, just the best.
Try and stop me, try and save me
I want to fall!
I absolutely LOVE this song! I can listen to this song all day!
It's one of my favourites of 30 seconds to mars, this song should be in the top 10!

31Oblivion
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?

33Conquistador
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 epic... Very underrated...

34Was It a Dream?
epic! listen to it immediately! top 10-15.
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!
This song is pure genius:
"Your reflection I've erased
Like a thousand burned out yesterdays
Believe me when I say goodbye forever is for good (good... Good... Good)
Was it a dream?
Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I (A photograph of you and I)"
Top 20.

35End 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!

36Stranger 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!

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.
