The Top Ten

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.
[Newest]This is one of my favourite songs of all time.

More comments about Blackbird

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/
[Newest]Pretty awesome! COming Home is good too!

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.
[Newest]I just love this song...

4Open Your Eyes
Love this song, especially the huu uuh part, very amazing
I love the guitar solo in this song, Mark has many good solos but this one is the best in my opinion.
love em all, but open your eyes is just absolutely amazing
[Newest]Probably one of the best creations of alter bridge. such a meaningful song

This should be up higher, and I guess its not only because it's sorta new...
Its so different from the rest of their stuff, it kicks ass!
it wlll totally blow your head... another masterpiece frm AB, should listen and vote for this legendary song, its awesome believe me
Awsommmmee... This is from there upcoming album ABIII.. Just listen to it.. totally amazing...!


[Newest]Amazing song cool riff and rocking vocals

6In 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.
[Newest]Best song, emotional, would make you cry.

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
[Newest]This song gives me goosebumps every time I listen... Such a great song! M/

8Watch 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).
[Newest]Love the feel of this song

9Ghost 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!


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.
[Newest]I think this is the best song of alter bridge

10Rise 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

The Contenders

11Addicted 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.

12Cry 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
[Newest]Blackbird is the best but this is easily a close second

13Slip to the Void
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.
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
[Newest]One of the best songs by AB. enough said..

14All 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?

15Come to Life
This song has been truly disgraced on this list.
Hello! This song is the best AB song ever. Just listen to it.
The intro is totally cool and Chorus so very Thrilling. Its A MUST-LISTEN!
A perfect title to an awesome song. This song makes you want to COME TO LIFE! Mark's solo, Myles' vocals, Mark's backing... Classic AB!
It is just a truly must hear song simply awesome my favorite one lately
[Newest]After listening to this song no one can hate it again. True story

16I 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...!!!


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

17Buried Alive
All of Alter Bridges songs are totally awesome, but if I had to choose, it'd be Buried Alive. It's got a good meaning to those who need cheering up when their down. To tell them that they're not the only one going through the rough times in life. Anyone who likes this song will agree!
Unbelievably awesome riffs and rhythm!
I love this song as much as I love Blackbird!

The beginning and end of the song are PERFECT and the whole song is just a mind blower!

18Brand 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.

19Words 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.

20Coming Home
The chorus is superb on this one! Definitely a top 10 for me. I wish it was higher, but I still think this is amazing! Blackbird was probably their best album filled with amazing songs like this. Blackbird - the song- was excellent as well
this song is so beautiful, beautiful riffs and vocals, so great! long live myles and alter bridge!
yeah! coming home is my favourite song from them! and it's the first I ever heard from them, yeah!

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

22Find 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!

23Before Tomorrow Comes
Best song I've ever heard. Needs more votes. This is a travesty. Passion, emotion and spectacular vocals
How is this song so low on all the lists I see? This is my favourite ever! Beautiful lyrics and just gives me chills every time. !
This song is a classic from AB, should be top 10 for sure!, they always usually play it alive.

24Wonderful Life
Slightly underrated but not certainly overrated... This song is so awesome, but so are the other ones. But still you should listen to this song
This song is a soft song at the start and near the end its ROCK N so please hear this song thanks

25Down to My Last
Just Listening and Vote, I know this amazing song. I think this is best song from alter bridge. But I don't know why you're not vote n comment this song
Heard this the first among all songs. Lovely song and deserves to be top ten. Please, listen to this and vote up!
Amazing song, rocking solo... It should be top ten...

26Life Must Go On
Definitely one of my favorites by them. This song has gotten me through so much and will always be an all time favorite of mine
Beautiful Chores... Amazing song AB III Rocks...!


Should be in top 10. Great song

27Calm the Fire
If this was a single it would surely be in the top ten. This is just a list of the most popular songs, not necessarily the best ones. Also White Knuckles is way too low.
Epic song one of the best
This song is unbeatable by so many bands. I love Avenged Sevenfold but this song tops almost all of theirs. The falsetto at the beginning, the vocal point at the end, and the melodic music is just to die for
Hands down one of the best songs on the planet. AT least top 10.
[Newest]One of the most epic songs with an epic start and epic, EVERYTHING. I just can't over it being 26th, it must at least be in top 5

28Shed My Skin
Such a great song like so many from AB. but the chorus here takes the biscuit, such emotion and power from Myles and the rest of the best band out their today
This is my second favorite. Save Me is first
Epic. Should be much higher!

29Still Remains
I think Alter Bridge are one of the best bands in terms of relatable songs and this song is yet another of their masterpieces with brilliant words through soaring vocals and master guitar shreddery
Best guitar work on the album. Killer opening riff sucks you in!
The chorus is so epic

30One Day Remains
Just too good. One of their best. And it rocks! I don't really care what people says about the other songs of Alter Bridge-maybe good or may not but this song is really worth listening. its a must for all the fans of Alter Bridge out there and if you dnt try dis then definitely you are missing something
This is DEFINITELY one of their best songs! Vote vote vote! Tremonti Godlike-skills are shown in this amazing song. Long live Alter Bridge!
Best song. Period. Its sick intro, solos and fluidity are unmatched. Ide say there should be more like this but then it wouldn't he as original.
[Newest]Hahaha.. Can't believe.. So down..! Stomach's aching.. Can't stop laughing..!

31White Knuckles
This song should be higher on the countdown! Isolation should be here! I love the voice of the singer at the chorus... He had a great voice... Alter bridge is such a great band.
If this isn't in your top ten you don't truly appreciate Alter Bridge; first time I heard the closing riff I think my face melted!
Imagine how high this would have been if this was a single... It's just a brilliant fast paced song which gets way too little recognition.

32Wayward One
Of course, Blackbird should be on 1, and most of the other top 10 songs really deserve their spot there.
But why isn't Wayward One on 11 in stead of this disrespectful place?
It's got great lyrics, great solo, great chorus and a great feeling/balance overall.
If most of the people like blackbird, they should at least like this song too.
Am I seeing this in 54? People voting here just need some medication or they really need to hear the full AB discography. I mean, just listen to this song man, this is some masterpiece. AS at its brilliant best. Melody, lyrics, solos every damn thing in this is stuff is just in the bull's eye. How come is the song so down here. Guys, just listen some stuff before you vote
It is a shame that such a beautiful and dark song lies here on no 32! Deserves to be in top 10... I mean everything is perfect about this song and theme is just... No words man! Still trying to find them! Listen to this piece and you will surely admire its uniqueness!

33Make It Right
Never understood why this song got so little fame under the Alter Bridge songs. It's so awesome.

I totally agree with him.
This song Is Totally AWESOME. It definitely should be on top of this list.
Cool Guitar solo and Awesome Chorus.
Man! This LIST look more like a POPULARITY List instead.
Man I just can't not believe it! It's not in the top ten. this song is just pure awesome... everyone just please hear this song


Best alter bridge song
Another river runs against the grain a loner is born
Shakes my heart and soul

35Burn It Down
Sureley have it all. great guitar playing one on the best singing by Miles, great feel throughout the whole song. solo at the end not the best from Mark but overall (along with Brand new start and Blackbird) the best musically composed songs by this great band.
Its Magical. Haunting vocals.

36Show Me a Sign
33rd SERIOUSLY? This should be in the top 10 easy! Definitely worth your 6 minutes, this is an amazing song!
What the hell you r lisening, it should be in top ten, it has marvolous theme and feels like flowing water from sky to our heart.
Guys please lisen this song!

37C'oeur d'Alene
Superb guitar riff! Good solo,

38Water Rising
This song is outstanding. The lyrics. The composition. The duo. Seems better every time I listen to it.
Really Awesome song indeed!

Take a good listen to my fave AB song off of Fortress!


39The Uninvited
The chorus to the song is amazing. Every instrument is just sounding awesome. The riff is pretty sweet one of marks best
Best track on Fortress.

This song is so damn beautiful, this album was so great.
Come on! This should be at least in top 5!

41Watch Your Words
Way underrated if you haven't heard this song yet do it cause it is one of if not the greatest Alter Bridge song.
Huge song and lyrics. Powerfull riffs. Meistewerk
Just listen to this song!

42The End Is Here
Don, t think you people have heard this song. Deserves to be in the top ten. Anyways, it is unbelievable how underrated alter bridge is.
I think it's the best alterbridge song after broken wings... It's a shame its at 31st place. Awesome lyrics, great guitar riffs.
31st? You gotta be kidding! One of their best songs ever! The guitar riffs!

43Peace Is Broken
Underrated song. Sad to see it so low on the list.
Kick ass riff. Amazing chorus.

44Farther Than the Sun

45One by One

46Break Me Down
Nice song with beautiful music and lyric.

47Bleed It Dry
The best solo by Tremonti so far... enough said

48Save Me

49Breathe Again
Whenever a five minute walk to the shops or pub is necessary, I usually stick this beast of a song on. Can't get enough of it. Has an amazing finish which always makes a song score more highly with me. Top ten in my books.
Brilliant song, I wish this was higher on the list. I am a WWE fan, if I didn't watch that, I wouldn't have known how good Alter Bridge is! Alter Bridge are my favourite band EVER and this song is my favourite!
The vocals is totally out of this world.. Love the way how the song starts and how it builds up.. It feels like it tells a story of one's heart, the pain and sorrow it undergoes. Hatoffs to the band for this song
[Newest]Rise above the hands that try to hold me down. Enough said...

50All Ends Well
I love this song. Unique for AB and very uplifting. I understand AB's trademark is Mark's high-speed guitar alongside Myles' impossibly ranged voice. I'd say
1) Blackbird
2) One By One
3) White Knuckles
4) All Ends Well
5) In Loving Memory
Absolutely mad song, uplifting!
Amazing Song! Love Myles' high notes at the end

51Cry a River
Amazing song, this should be #1

52New Way to Live


54We Don't Care at All

It seems no one has even tried this, which is in the 55th place, this song is so nice it should be at least below top 20. Come on vote for it!

56The Damage Done

57Never Born to Follow

Zero, is an extremely underrated song. I remember when someone recommended to me, I was extremely impressed. The message in the lyrics is great, just like all the other songs by Alter Bridge. However, this deserves top ten. I'm not going to hate on Metalingus, but this deserves to be up there. Make it happen, by listening to this song and voting for it, to get it the high place it deserves.
Just listen to this song. It is one of Alter Bridge's finest. Massively underrated song. Powerful stuff
Really?! Zero is 57th? I'm gonna go kill myself... :/
