Best Alter Bridge Songs

Best songs by the American rock band Alter Bridge - hard rock, alternative metal, post-grunge...

The Top TenXW


Great song. Epic solo. Definitely better than metalingus...

Great song.. Every time I heard this song in my car make me want to pick my guitar instead of steering wheel.. Genius build-up tone. Riffing and solo..

Metalingus? It's a great song and all, but it's not even in their top 20 for me. Blackbird is a masterpiece. It's only WWE fans that haven't even listened to all of AB's songs that like metalingus that much.

This song means a lot to me.. After having lost a great buddy forever, this is a reflection of the memory that remains..

Ascend may you find no resistance.. Know that you made such a difference.. All you leave behind will live till the end..

I may be a WWE & Edge fan but this is truly an amazing song! The guitar and the rhythm are simply incredible. This song is definitely.. must-hear. One of ma favs EVER.

Even if I was'nt an Edgehead I still would have loved it!

Well, I Worship many songs and Like BLACKBIRD very much, but in the end I suppose Metalingus is the Best, Its like the Anthem for me... Its the Best!... M/

This song can change your life, it cured me from depression and metal issues

3Broken Wings

One of my favourite guitar intros ever. It's absolutely beautiful how guitar follows Miles trough verses and than explodes in refrain. I love the lyrics too.

It is an amazing, versatile song! The vocals of Kennedy and the superb play of Tremonti just makes this Alter Bridge's 'Very Best' song"'

Hell yeah! This epic song has one of the best intros I've ever heard. The acoustic parts mixed up with the heavy distorted guitars give this track a unique feel. Myles Kennedy's vocals are so melodic and what's shocking is that they don't even use one octillionth of Auto-Tune, so.. , this is an purely original song. The lyrics are written so good, man, Tremonti's a true genius. The "On broken wings I'm falling..." parts will give you goosebumps like you've never felt before. Just... amazing, not only is this a great song, Alter Bridge is also a great band. So if you don't know them, check them out.

Very very very Best song

5Ghost Of Days Gone By

Ghosts of Days Gone By ties Blackbird but I voted for it because I do not believe that this song should only be in 10th place. In my opinion, it should be ranged in this order:

Blackbird or Ghosts of Days Gone By
In Loving Memory
Open Your Eyes
Watch Over You
Ties That Bind
Broken Wings
Rise Today

I wish more people new of this epic song. This is their greatest song, no contest. I agreed with the top 10 before I heard this song, now I'm going to have to make some adjustments! - MusicAddict1993

This is an Amazing song! I could listen to this all day long! Alter Bridge is a great band and deserve to be better known for such great and overpowering music, they are my idols. That is all.

I think this is the best song of alter bridge

6Rise Today

"Rise today" is such a great song. It gives you hope and grants you the power to RISE ADN CHANGE THIS WORLD. After you hear this song, you just can't give up on anything!

I love ab and this song especially. They empathize with the listener by saying how they feel such as being hopeless, but then they give hope by saying things like "rise today", "don't close your eyes" in cry of Achilles, and "on this day I see clearly" in metalingus

Undertaker vs. Mark Henry Unforgiven.. Hey Yeah Oh Hey Yeah.. I wanna rise today and change this world

I just simply love this song. I identify with it and I get a great feeling just listening to it.

7Ties That Bind

Song is so epic! As soon as Mark plays that opening riff you immediately get sucked in! Get ready and hang on for a wild ride! This song is just Awesome. Love Myle's high notes and also marks Solo at the end!

The. Best. Song. Ever. So easy to get caught up in it. The guitar is everywhere and you have no idea whats going to happen next. I actually thought about getting "beyond the ties that bind" as a tattoo

Brilliant piece of music and definitely on the top of the list of some of the best modern hard rock

The start is epic! And then the vocals too! Simply Awesome!

Probably one of the best creations of alter bridge. such a meaningful song

9In Loving Memory

Anyone that has ever suffered loss will be touched by this song. Beautiful. Tremonti's performance live in Amsterdam was masterclass.

the most epic lyrics on the world, no one can ever beat this... it's simply brilliant, amazing, whatever you want to call it... sorry for your loss mark, you are a fabulous son I'm sure about it...

Greatest AB song. The emotion is amazing. Superb vocals and spectacular guitar along with amazing lyrics. This song cannot be beat.

Best song, emotional, would make you cry.

10Watch Over You

I love most of the ones above this one, but it's no doubt that this song is way better than the others. One of my favorite rock songs of all time, to be honest. A girl I'm getting close to right now, it was the first song she heard from Alter Bridge, and she said it almost made her cry -- it's that good.

This song has all the great aspects of the perfect song. It's slow and powerful but also rocking at the same time. It has a sort of epicness to it. Not to mention the catchy guitar riff and awesome harmonies.

This song gives me Wings to fly Beautiful T~T I think it's the best song ever by Alter B. I said thanks so much for that because I'll never be fed up of listening this. Yup, this is a real Love story for WATCH OVER YOU (l).

Just a good song period

The Contenders

11Brand New Start

Fantastic refrain, perfect melody, gives me creeps. My favourite song from AB.

Brand New Start at 20 is a joke
This is one of there great songs.
1 Fallout
2 Brand New Start
3 Ghosts Of Days Gone By
4 Rise Today
5 Broken Wings
6 Wayward One
7 Ties That Bind
8 Still Remains
9 Cry Of Achilles
10 Before Tomorrow Comes

Definitely provides atmosphere and imagery, one of my favorites.

12Slip to the Void

Why the devilisnt this higher on the list? It's my favorite song by them! Also, I'm a huge Edge-head but I still think this song is way better.

The greatest way how you can start AB concert. It's just amazing how it's built. First Myles starts with a quiet sing and after about 30sek Mark Tremonti introduces himself with a powerful riff. It's just what AB is about - Tremonti is the leader, Myles just help him to be visible

This should be at least in the top 5. Isolation sucks compared to this. This is almost better than Afterlife by A7X and What I've Done by Linkin Park.

One of the best songs by AB. enough said..

13Addicted to Pain

This is a new great song by AB, I sincerely hope we can vote it up to top 10

The more well known this song becomes, the higher it will rise. AB hit a winner with this one

I'm ADDICTED to it. Always cheers me up. I love every part.

Beautiful sound that can span multiple genres in one song

This song has been truly disgraced on this list.
Hello! This song is the best AB song ever. Just listen to it.

15All Hope Is Gone

Why isn't it in the top 10?... Such a great composition... I rejoice the tune whenever I listen it... AB I is so awesome..

Best song from alter bridge. You must listen to it

This is the best song ever. What the hell r you guys listen?

16Words Darker Than Their Wings

The intro is kinda Blackbird to me. Myles ^^ Mark vocal duo is great, although it feels weird. however, this songs is kickass. Myles high notes towards the end of the song is simply incredible! You have to give this song a listen...

Not only one of my favourite songs by Alter Bridge, but one of my favourite songs period. How is it so far down?
I absolutely love Tremonti's backing vocals. While not as good as Myles, his vocals really add a lot to the song.

17I Know It Hurts

One of the best from ABIII
love it 's melody and lyrics...!!! vocals and instruments are Superb as of the best from Alter bridge...!!!

Hail Alter Bridge...!!! - skt

This is defenitley one of the greatest songs of Alter Bridge, personally it came down on me hard, its very inspiring for those times when you feel given up on life

Absolutely brilliant lyrics and riff and everything! Myles Kennedy rules

This song is everything! Love it, can apply to many people

Definitely rivals Blackbird for best Alter Bridge "epic" piece...7-plus minutes of riffing, brilliant soft/loud lyrics by Myles, amazing four-in-one guitar solo...just an amazing all-around track that deserves to be voted into at least the top 5.

Much Much better than blackbird for sure
Whether it's the melody the feel or the change of pace Epic Song
Take a bow Mr. Mark Tremonti

19Cry of Achilles

Definitely their best song ever!

THE best song on a great 4th album in "Fortress". No question...

The best song on their new album... Also waters rising is another limelight in the album

Amazing song, should be higher

20Find The Real

Aside from the ballad style tracks from AB, this is easily one of the top 3 hard rock songs from these guys! No question

My favorite AB song is Metalingus, but I cannot believe this song hasn't gotten a vote. Come on! This song is so amazing. My 2nd favorite AB song!. Alter Bridge ROCKS!

How is this 27?! This was the first song I've ever heard by AB and its still in my opinion number one! This should have at least made the top 10 easily!
