The Top Ten

1
The Sound of Truth
I love this song. Lyrically brilliant. Overall the song is empowering. Best for sure, followed by Parallels
awesome starting, great solo
overall outstanding
the most amazing opening riff ever! This is my all time favorite band! but I don't think The blinding of false light should be on the top 10. condemned, anger and apathy is waaaaay better and so is "this is who we are".
[Newest]Seriously.. This song made me stand still..

2Parallels
Very melodic... Josh's voice cracked my nuts when he sang the chorus. Tim's screaming gave me a soul. The guitar work is great! Good job nick and phil
gr8 song by the band. really awesome lyrics and the drums are outstanding like in a typical as I lay dying song. really cool.
Great solo... For me it's the best solo... Awesome song... A legend As I Lay Dying song... Its superb vocals make me heartthrobed every time... Its awesome
[Newest]This song made me an HUGE fan of 'As I Lay Dying'


3Nothing Left
The first song I heard of this band... And it made me an AILD fan... Awesome!

This will totally get you into metalcore... Great work by the band.
Nothing left is my favorite song I've herd by them and it has yet to let me down with all of their new songs I love this one so much because the guitar solos are just amazing and the vocals are just outstanding the best part if the whole song and the reason it is so awesome is the opening with the guitar going dada the the dada this song just rocks my world
As I Lay Dying has really grew on me, this band and All That Remains are the best Metalcore bands out there at the moment. This song is just epic and the chorus really gets me pumped. LIKE THOSE GASPING, FOR THEIR LAST BREATH, WE CANNOT HIDE, THERE'S NOTHING LEEEFFT
[Newest]First song I heard by the, instantly fell in love. Love it


4Through Struggle
Best head banging song ever. Watch the music video and you'll wanna head bang your face off! Now vote for this song!
This song should be #1 what? Gets you pumped and is a great song to listen to. Listen to this and tell me the 3 above it should be above it. They shouldn't. Forever should be higher up too, come on people! This is hands down the best song though
SHOULD BE AT SECOND AFTER SOUND OF TRUTH, FOLLOWED BY THE DARKEST NIGHTS! THE OUTRO IS BRILLIANT AND LYRICS ARE COLL!

5Anodyne Sea
This great Song will infect your mind! Just awesome.
Definitely deserves a place on top 3!
In my Opinion this is the best song from Aild.
Absolutely epic. Incredible breakdown. This is for sure As I Lay Dying'S greatest song ever.

6Confined
Awesome song that's all
So much good songs... can't decide.. but I guess my number 1 is this piece, Forsaken, Nothing Left or The Sound Of Truth!

It is an amazing song. I could listen to this for hours without getting bored. The guitar and vocals are absolutely awesome.
The best part is when he sings De-fen-der
Amazing song
Never gets old! I've listened to this song hundreds of times and it is still the best song ever!
[Newest]It's an amazing song, I always hear to this every morning

8Forsaken
ARE YOU JOKING. the riff here (the one around the chorus... the one that makes you headbang lol) is actually THE BEST diatonic riff in ALL of metalcore. (i say diatonic because bands like TBDM use chromatic riffs). simply based on the riff, this should be top 3, number 1 imo.
A very overpowering song. My band played this and sound of truth for our school and made them our and aild's fans... We head banged a lot while playing and couldn't move our heads for three days after the show! Go aild!
The best hands down. I love every part of the song and it is hard for me to find a flawless song. This song should definitely be number 1.
[Newest]Awesome killer riffs! Definitely deserves top spot..

9Paralyzed
Paralyzed is by far my favorite song by As I Lay Dying. How isn't it at least in the top three?! The guitars in the beginning are totally epic, and the lyrics are awesome all the way through!
Paralysed so behind is surprising... It deserves at least a top 3 finish... The intro is the best intro of As I Lay Dying if not in all of metal core
This has the most amazing guitar riff at the beginning, it is the fight song on my IPod, long live METAL!

10Anger and Apathy
This song rings true on so many different levels. Everyone deals with a bit of duplicity in their lives, and in this song As I Lay Dying really drives home the concept that we need to strive for betterment in our lives, and that fighting for something that means everything to us is worth more than we give it credit for. "I need to burn inside, I need to know that you are alive. "

The Contenders

11The Darkest Nights
The chorus itself should put this at number 1. So loud, epic, and just so smooth. Great song. Heard it live, and just blew me away.
its not heavy at all for an aild song, but the guitars and vocals awesome XD. they're one of my favourite bands. Underoath and As I Lay Dying are the best, and by far the most mature metalcore bands today!
Well, nothing in my opinion can be compared to sound of truth, but darkest nights totally seals the 2nd spot with awesome guitar riffs and an epic chorus!
[Newest]This song should be at least the second. Clean chorus is so amazing, and the riff is so melodic. The Darkest Nights deserves higher place.

12Wrath Upon Ourselves
This is an awesome song, powerful and awesome drumming, brilliant song.

EvilAngel

Growlings followed by clean group vocals.. The best of As I Lay Dying.
This song deserves a better place

13An Ocean Between Us
This song deserves to be in the top 10 at least... sweet intro and guitar and is overall just bad ass

14Forever
#1 best song by them. ever! The guitar parts are amazing to listen to... the vocals are spine tingling and the depth of the song and the meaning in heart crushing. Amazing song for those who are going through some love problems and for fans who just love an amazing metal song!
This song is just awesome.. If you have fallen in love, you will make more sense to you. This song should be number one for sure
A great song about giving love away for someone's happiness.

15Vacancy
I think so it should in the top 10.
Dis song is awesome and it make me energetic...!
People mst hear this song if they are a real fan of As I Lay Dying
This song is so epic it's ridiculous. I've heard it's actually illegal in 14 states.
So meaningful lyrics... Really affects me

16Condemned
I agree this song is flippin bad ass m/
WHAT?! Why the fu*k is this song doing down here?! Condemned is one of the best songs As I Lay Dying has ever made. Just listen to the bass and the combined guitars?!.. And that brake... REWWEWWAUEFHAGGHH!

17I Never Wanted
This song is very inspirational for me musically and I like how different it is than most as I lay dying songs are structured. I wish this song would be in the top 10. Also, the music video is pretty cool too and I enjoyed all the live footage that was included with it!
How is this not in the top ten? It may be one of their slower songs, but slower doesn't always mean that it's boring. This is absolutely one of their best songs ever written!
Song is a very strong track off a very amazing album. I honestly do not understand why this is not in the top 10. Let's get it up there. Just because it's slow doesn't mean it's not good! It's one of the best song I've heard from them.
[Newest]Love love love this song its just amazing! Number one!

18Whispering Silence
Gosh! Why is it here?! It deserves at least the same place as Through Struggle.

19Reinvention
It is unfortunate that the re-recording of this song did not make it onto a full length studio album. It did make it onto a compilation album though. I love this song. It was originally my least favorite of As I Lay Dying's original 5 from the split record with American Tragedy, but it has grown into my favorite. The Beginning has the best guitar intro, and Forever has the best lyrics, but Reinvention is the best song as a whole. The lyrics are brilliant, the guitars are awesome, and, despite not having a chorus, or perhaps because of it, it has never gotten old to me. No matter how many times I listen to it, I am always up for listening to it again. I never get sick of it.
