The Top Ten

The Feel Good Drag
I love this song! The acoustic version is also very good and Stephen's voice is just amazing. You would never know that he was a singer unless you heard him.
This is the best song they had! This is one of my best songs. Awesome beats and superb guitar play vote it up
An amazing song that is extremely catchy! This and Alexithymia are my two favourites. They have the perfect combination of smooth riffs, catchy chorus' and lyrics that actually make sense unlike some other bands
[Newest]It was a dark night and I was totally pissed then I heard this song and you won't believe I listened this and only this song for next 10 days

Simply must be heard to be understood. The lyrics read like a confessional; nothing can match the feeling of abject wonder felt at the conclusion of the song. This song is the perfect ending to anything.
My absolute favorite Anberlin song, although the unwinding cable car is a close second. It's absolutely amazing how deep this song is. The last three minutes are the best.


Really great song,
Every word has a good and better meaning if you try to find it.
The song might mean many things, but all for it, it's all about perspective but still, everyone should at least listen to the song once.
[Newest]Greatest mix of acoustic and alternative rock...

3Paper Thin Hymn
great lyrics... this should be no. 2 after feel good drag, really a good song to hear
This is their best song.. great lyrics from a great band. This is the first Anberlin song I listened to and since then I can't stop listening to them.
This song has some deep lyrics that really touch you, will always be one of my favorites

4The Unwinding Cable Car
this song haunts me... this has a ring of truth and half-revealed truths that makes me think of the inevitables... I haven't been able to get this off my head even though I listen to it 24/7
The moment I heard this I fell in love with this band! Amazingly awesome!
Wonderful angst and hopefulness
[Newest]Definitely should be number 1. Fantastic melody

Just simply amazing. The song starts out fast passed and stays that way with an incredible bass and lyrics.

6A Whisper and a Clamor
Crunch, churning guitars highlight a driving verse structure leading to a triumphantly catchy chorus. The bridge, in a word: unparalleled.

Beautiful song; the ideas presented in this song are quite abstract, and can be interpreted in many ways, as I've seen on forums about it, though the most prominent one I've seen is about someone who can almost unknowingly "dismantle" and "repair" another, or have a powerful influence on their emotions and worldview.
How is this not even on the list? At least top 5, really powerful song :) Acoustic is great too!


It's just an amazing song. Anberlin has always been great with lyrics, and this one shows off their talent.


This song is amazingly sweet. "I wanna break every clock" as in he wants to strop time to be with her
I really enjoy listening to this song. I am shocked it was not as big a hit as it was. Still my favorite along with feel good drag. =)
A beautiful song with more toned down vocals and guitars
"i wanna be your last first kiss, that you'll ever have"

Impossible is one of my all time favorite from Anberlin. It should definitely be number 3 at least. The lyrics are beautiful and just the music... Awesome song to listen to. "You're impossible to love or leave"
WHat number 12? No it must be at least in the top 10 no the top 5! This song should be number 2 its one of their best with the feel good drag! Literally my favorite
Haven't heard this song, ha? I bet as soon as anberlin's fan see this, this song would go up and up to a higher position! I'm aware that no one have put up impossible...

The Contenders

This song is made out of pure awesomeness, from an old bottle of awesomeness which was hid away around the time when god created earth. Counting when they made this song, it has only been opened twice. The other time was by Chuck Norris.
Superb song miind blowing lyrics

This song is amazing, although I feel bad for all the girls named Adelaide. The song has good sound and beat to it. Lyrics have strong meaning. The song altogether was just one of there great songs. Love it all together!

13A Day Late

This song is musically a MASTERPIECE. Its so beautiful that the music will stick into your mind for days.. One of the best of Vital (along with Modern Age)
A classy and dramatic piano with epic guitar riffs behind it. Honestly that's all Anberlin needs.

Should be at LEAST top 10. I'm a little shocked it isn't



18God, Drugs & Sex
I know it's not on the list yet because Vital just came out a few weeks ago, but it's the closer to their best album since Cities, and their closing songs are always the best.


19We Owe This to Ourselves
Awesome song. Its got getter drums in it than most of Anberlins music I think which is probably why I like it, because I am a drummer. Should be second to Godspeed in my opinion.
This was the first song I heard from them, great song. Should be higher up.

Beautiful but sad. A song about long lost lovers. This song is both inspiring and captivating, and it leads you deep into your own past. It is just as good musically as it is lyrically.

21Ready Fuels

22Miserable Visu (Ex Malo Bonum)
This song is a masterpiece... Beautiful stuff by anberlin


This is the most captivating song of their great run.

Very fast paced song with great sound. I really couldn't tell you why it is so low on the list. I honestly expected it to be in top 20 at least. This is one of those songs to get you pumped. The name is certainly a description of its utility. A self starter.

24True Faith
While it's only a cover of a New Order song of the same name, this song blew me away when I first heard it. It became my favorite song so fast! This song is amazing beyond belief. It just sounds so... good! It gives you this feeling of undeniable greatness. With this song playing, nothing can go wrong. That's what I have to say about this song. All I ask is that you give it a try. Do it for a fellow Anberlin fan.
their new hit, nice and simple, it evolves on those who feel faithless and hopeless, listen and judge


This song's really underrated, despite it being a cover.

25Enjoy the Silence
This is a fantastic, upbeat song that makes you want to get up and dance your heart out, while being accompanied by awesome lyrics! Definite favourite!
If you are looking for a great song, stop searching and give this masterpiece a shot
How on earth this masterpiece is no.24? It deserves to be #1

26A Perfect Tourniquet


28Dance, Dance, Christa Paffgen
The most underrated Anberlin song, in my honest opinion. It's the last song on a CD, so that's understandably so, but it has an amazing and addicting beat and a tremendous sound.
My all time favourite Anberlin song. It's so sad that it is underrated.
I love this song!

29Modern Age

30Naive Orleans

31Art of War
One of the most emotional and beautiful songs lyrically.


33Glass to the Arson
Not even in the top 20? WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO? It is there best song, only rivaled by The Feel Good Drag. Extremely well put together and very catchy.


35Stranger Ways
New classic from the final album

36(The Symphony Of) Blasé

37The Resistance
For me the best their ssong

38The Promise
The last song from 'Cities'. I think this song is one of the catchiest song from that album. Ijust like the harmonies in the song

39To the Wolves
Need I say more?

40Dead American
This is AMAZING! Of the deluxe edition of Vital (Devotion) it's even better than City Electric
I love the refrain and the verses almost as much.

Kinda goes hard, gotta give it a little more credit than not being on the list at all.

42Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights)

43Time & Confusion

44Little Tyrants
I know it is a newer song but Little Tyrants is one their better rock heavy songs and I can't believe it isn't on this list yet. There are no boring parts in this song.

45Take Me (As You Found Me)
Right up there with Breathe for their slower songs.

46Never Take Friendship Personal

47Hearing Voices

Great song. One of the more unknown songs but it is still amazing.

49Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights)

50The Haunting
Such a great song! I can't believe that this is only a b-side... I guess it shows how good Anberlin really are!
Their best song till date. You haven't heard it you are really missing out their greatest creation till date. Period
Its truly an awesome and very beautiful song.. Maybe their best ever. whoevr hasnt listened to this song, PLEASE DO.

51I'd Like to Die

52Haight St.
This song is pretty underrated. Epic lyrics, epic beat, and epic mood. Everything about this song gives you an excited feeling. Makes you wanna go out and have some fun with your good friends!
