The Top Ten

The Diary of Jane
absolutely perfect song... the vocals, the guitar chords, the drums absolutely everything is perfect...
this song deserves the first spot in the list,
just an amazing song by breaking benjamin that never gets poor...
i wonder what is the meaning of this song...
well never mind...
this song ROCKS!
The best song of the decade in my opinion, it definitely deserves the first spot, BREAKING BENJAMIN NEVER STOP ROCKING THIS WORLD
[Newest]The best song ever!
More comments about The Diary of Jane

This song is powerful. The singing is awesome, the music beautiful, the introduction unforgettable (and quite possibly Breaking Benjamin's best) and it gives you the strength to go and do what you want and not worry what others will think. BB forever
The guitar, bass, vocals, lyrics and drum beat blend together so well in this song and the final product is a beautifully produced and edited single. Starts off with a hard intro, into a soft moody verse and then comes a punctual, loud chorus. Bragging sticky, yet meaningful lyrics about a broken relationship, this is one of the best hard rock songs of the decade by a band that deserves far more credibility than it has ever had. Go BB!
This song is one of the best hate-love song EVER, I just love it... Should be number one, no doubt about it! "You left a hole where my heart should be... "
[Newest]This song will always be top favorite for me. I love that part where Ben softly says "you take the breath right out..." and suddenly the song gets so powerful. It's kind of like a roller coaster. The other songs are amazing but this one is breath-taking. The lyrics and everything. It's just perfect!

3Give Me a Sign
best lyrics... at almost the end of the song, the melody is very2 nice.. and it is awesome.. its a perfect song. and I love this song so much..
such a good words.........
this song always makes me cry....
simply the best
An awesome song with some awesome lyrics. This song has some very beautiful rhymes. I think this song is obviously one of the best song for a song lover.
[Newest]I can't explain my feelings towards this song, Just amazing!

4I Will Not Bow
This is the BEST.
Definitely my favorite of all the Breaking Benjamin songs. I agree that this should be number one. Breath and Give Me a Sign are good, but not as good as I Will Not Bow.
This song should definitely be number 1! it gives me the feeling like they're going through pain and the lyrics express so much! they make you feel like you're actually experiencing what's going on, great job with this song Breaking Benjamin!
I think The Diary of Jane is the best Breaking Benjamin song, with I will not bow as a close second. It pans me to see this close to perfect song at fourth place. The scream at the beginning is chilling, and the guitar work on this song is just divine. I Will Not Bow deserves to be in the top two at all times.
[Newest]No way Give me a sign is better than this track.

5So Cold
Best song of all time, who could ask for a song that gives off more dark resonance, yet tragic hope. It is a song for humanity.
really best rock song all the time.
Its Really The Best rocking song of Breaking Benjamin
[Newest]Song that really gets to you. It's perfect.

6Dear Agony
This is just an amazing song. Simple as that. My friend said to me one time "Everyone has problems, you don't have to write a song about it" Let's just say we're not friends anymore" I think this song really describes how you would feel on your deathbed "I will fight for last breath, I will fight until the end"
Emotionally driven and powerfully played, the only song that has ever brought a tear to my eye. If God were to make a song about pain and 'agony' then this is what it would be, timeless and flawless, amazing.
yeah, one of two songs that ever brought tears to my eyes. the other one being let it burn by red. but this song is so powerful, all my friends hate it and I don't understand why.
[Newest]My favorites are dear agony and the diary of jane

7Dance With the Devil
I love this song! It's one of my favorites. Love the lyrics, the beat, the tone, the EVERYTHING!
Really amazing song with superb lyrics. Listen to this song before you decide not to vote for it.
This is probably my favourite BB song, I can't believe it's only in 10th place. I really love the lyrics, and the music itself rocks.
[Newest]This song just spoke to me

8Blow Me Away
I went a very very long time listening to this song on repeat. It's so catchy and I'm convinced Ben Burnley is the only person who could sing it and make it sound THAT. GOOD. It's amazing live, by the way :)
I listen this song even when I'm playing games! IN fact I'm listening it right now! IT ROCKS SO MUCH! Its genius the lyrics, everything. Anybody who loves heavy metal should listen this song... I can't imagine a day without an hour of listening to Blow me away!
Its the best song I have ever heard
It is so amazing it just blows me away every time I see it.
The first time when my friend asked me to listen to it I was like why?
But... //
[Newest]Should be a lot higher up.

9Had Enough
This is their heaviest song to date and most aggressive. I love how epic the intro is and the chorus is just amazing.
Amazing song. It's so aggressive! I absolutely love how angry it is. This song is BEAST!
I was so confused because I love bb... all the songs... can I vote for all?
but had enough is special for me... :X
[Newest]BY FAR their best song. the lyrics are deep and it's so catchy, diary of jane kneels before this song

10Evil Angel
This song is awesome, 1st time I heard it I fell in love with it!
I put this song on a youtube video of mine and it is now my most viewed video with thousands of views!
Breaking benjamin for the win!
The second and the third chorus are amazing. The way Benjamin manages to switch between harsh and soft (yet sharp) voice is not everyone can do. This ability is very rare. Another person who can manipulate his voice in this fashion is Chester Bennington.
Amazing Song, honestly under rated and most people havnt heard of it, In my opinion, keep it that way, the less people that hear it the better. A song this great shouldn't be ruined by over play through radio and the like, as so many songs today are!
[Newest]This song is just so amazing! The Chorus is just beautiful and everything just works perfect!

The Contenders

11Until the End
This song was the first breaking Benjamin song I ever heard. I love it! Only number 8?! Why so fail commissioner?!? My friend said Linkin park was awesome... I agreed
He also said Slipknot was awesome... I agreed
Hue also said Korn was awesome... I agreed
My friend said breaking Benjamin sucked... I punched him in the face
This song represents me!
This was the first song I heard from these guys and the sound of their voices was just remarkable.
WTF! this song is legendary
it should be in the top three not at the bottom of the ranking...
[Newest]This was the first song I ever heard by them many years ago! This song made me feel like I could do anything! The lyrics are great and its got the perfect mix of scream in it, and lets not forget that badass music in the background! This song definitely deserves top 5!

12Without You
Best song ever! The lyrics are just so great, they blend in with the music perfectly. Everything about this song is just perfect. This song deserves to be higher up!
This song is amazing. The music, the singing, the atmosphere... It's perfect. It shouldn't be this low on this list. Nope.
This song is Really good, awesome lyrics
it should be on the top...
and the music is so great very awesome guitar it really feel everything on this song
[Newest]This song is one of the only songs I can at over and over and never get bored of it

Okay, while I may agree with half the list up there, this songs definitely deserves the spot in the top 5 people!
WHAT! ARE you KIDDINg' ME! Until the end, breath and other songs are on the top 10 but not one of the best songs I've heard. This is unacceptable! Here's my top 5 list for the songs I've heard:
1. So Cold
2. Crawl
3. Had Enough
4. Diary of Jane(too rushed and fast paced in my opinion but certainly very good)
5. I will not bow
I haven't listened to some of the songs though but this certainly does not deserve to be not among the top 3!
This is the best. The beats are paced just right and the only one even close to the is evil angel.
[Newest]Awesome song, perfect balance of hard hitting, aggressive rock and more melodic rock in the chorus. My favorite song by them

14Anthem of the Angels
Now this is a song that should have had an acoustic version. It is so emotional, the whole juxtaposition of someone being alive in your memory and being dead in reality and heart breaking. I though that the song should have been the slow but the electric guitar actually conveys the angst and the epic and complex journey people go through when somebody dies. I like the dark, cold, dormant and morbid imagery in the song. This song should easily be in the top 5. I love it when the bridge becomes softer and slower which really makes the words in the chorus stand out. Both the lyrics and the music fully convey and add more meaning to emotions and philosophy of life and death
I've never heard a Breaking Benjamin song that I didn't like, but out of all of them this is my favorite. Its soft but it still has their hard rock side too. Great Song!
Epic lyrics. Check it out. It will make you cry... Seriously... Just listen before you vote
[Newest]This song... literally made its way to the top! It is now the KING of my most favorite songs EVER!

15What Lies Beneath
NUMBER 32?! This is my favorite BB song, the chorus is simply amazing with the blend of instruments.
This is one of bb best song in my opinion, totally underrated
It's my favorite, sometimes it makes me cry. Other times it gives me strength. It really can be applied to my life. I guess its just sad that it is 20.
[Newest]This is such a GREAT song one of the best of Breaking Benjamin <3 Why 16? I just LOVE this song :')

Simply amazing. I love how Ben's anger shows through towards the end of the lyrics.
Out of this world chorus! One of the best choruses ever made; so damn intense! Seriously, 19th for this insanely epic song is an insult to breaking benjamin. Need to get it higher, and get it fast!
I agree. This is not only my favourite Breaking Benjamin song, its one of my favourite songs in general.
[Newest]Best chorus ever made.

17Unknown Soldier
Well written song. It has a lot of meaning and seems exactly how a soldier fells. This is one of my favorite breaking benjamin songs. It is well written and has a lot of meaning to it
I agree with you I like this song also and I was surprised it was not in top ten
I like this song it talks about being a soldier and how they would defend us I'm grateful for the soldiers that defend us so we could sleep sound in our bed without regret


[Newest]This song is so underrated. It's should be on top 7. And I think it's better then Give Me A Sign

such a good song, made we are not alone one of the best albums ever.


Best Breaking Benjamin song.
I see you
'Cause you won't get out of my way
I hear you
'Cause you won't quit screaming my name
I feel you
'Cause you won't stop touching my skin
I need you
They're coming to take you away
Possibly the best chorus I have ever heard. Why is this not in the top ten?!
I can't believe this is right at the BOTTOM of the entire LIST! What the heck! Listen to this song people then come here and VOTE!
[Newest]Should be in top 10 such an addictive song

Ok, not a very popular song with a boring name, but I assure people that this song is one of their best. More addicting than crack
O come on, just listen to those grunts...
Also, the quality of the drums is just mind-boggling. I just love this one
THIS IS A MUST LISTEN. Not a very popular song, but trust me. If you love Diary of Jane, you will LOVE this song. Go to Youtube, and listen. Also, I have no clue why Crawl isn't on this top ten. It is just as good.

I agree with this last comment. Give me a sign and I will not Bow is overrated. But Breath is good.
[Newest]Couldn't stop listening to the song! I kept replaying it over and over and over!

That's awesome... ! I've heard this once and I just wanted to get to know what's the title. Just then I've looked for their albums and they're really good.
How the flip is this song #20?!?! The guitar + bass riff is legendary! Any song that has a great start and great chorus is a great song, no matter what.
This song gets me ripped, one of my favorite pump up songs. Should be higher!

I love this song. Its one of my favorites. I love like 11 of their songs, so its hard to choose just one.
Such raw lyrics, and good music and vocals. Beats any other hate song by this band.


Awesome song, this was my first Breaking Bnejamin Song I ever listen, EPIC!
[Newest]I wish they were still together. By far the best breaking Ben song!

22Fade Away
Lmao, what the heck! How is this not in the top 10!? This is the first track from the brilliant Dear Agony and what a way to begin an album! This song frickin ROCKS! The riff is awesome!
What the hell this song must have really faded to end up all the way down here. This song Blows the roof!
I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH! Should be #1 not #5. The chorus is unmatchable and it just touches you in an amazing way! And it is so catchy! And the singer really put his all into this song to make it even better to listen to. Trust me, you'll be listening to this one day in and day out. Just download it and see for yourself.


[Newest]Clearly top 10 quality... Loved it

23Lights Out
It's a great song. And 14th is very disappointing come on guys! Really!?
Dedicated to all of the people who treat you bad. Awesome song! Great heavy rifts and awesome vocals! Perfect for when working out!
Breaking Benjamin have heaps of great songs, but this is the best. Great riff, lyrics, and Ben's voice is just amazing! He can sing like an angel but then shout like a demon. Excellent stuff!

[Newest]This song is criminally low on the list, easily one of their very best

24Forget It
This is a very slow song of theirs but its absolutely amazing I really feel this should be much higher up and the way Ben's vocals are in this song changing scales it deserves a LOT more. Come on Vote guys. I bet you'll haven't heard it yet.
It is really a beautiful song!
It should be in top 10!
Its a nice song I think anyone who follows breaking benjamin should listen this... His voice is just awesome and the music is also great... They have mixed the music notes nicely... So all these things makes this song a very very great song!
So vote guys this song deserves a position in top 10 songs!
Guys just listen to this song once, you'd want to vote it a little higher after hearing the song
[Newest]This song, simply put, is poetic genius. Everything from the vocals to the lyrics to the instrumentations make this song one of my favorites, not only by the band, but in general. It is, without a doubt, their most underrated song without the recognition it deserves!

Should be in the top 20. Very underrated along with Unknown Soldier.
Are you serious?! This should definitely be in the top 10. The vocals are amazing and there are no words to describe the lyrics. The ending of this song will just take your breath away!


The lyrics, the vocals, and the music is spot on. You don't know Breaking Benjamin if you haven't listened to this song.


[Newest]This song kicks ass! Very deep and heartfelt lyrics

I didn't felt before that breaking benjamin can sing a calm song.. Without any loud guitar.. I heard this one.. And I was like WOW.. EPIC
Love the song! It has an awesome meaning! This is one of my favorite songs from them, along with I will not bow and Diary of Jane.
Should be in top 10. Great solo with guitar. About this song is just perfect. This song deserves to be higher up! I dunno why its so low on this list. This was first song felt peaceful.
[Newest]Come on guys! This one deserves much more than just 29!

27You Fight Me
what!.31?. you have got to be kidding me. is there any song better than this. I don't think so.
This song really gets me amped up. Its easily one of their top ten songs.
It'd one of the best songs ever!
[Newest]Only 26!? This song should be in top 5!

28Sooner or Later
This is easily my favorite song by them. Suprised it isn't more popular. Easily gets me going. Very well written.
If you were ever in this situation, what this song describes, you will love it.

"Sooner or later
You're gonna hate it
Go ahead and throw your life away
Driving me under
Leaving me out there
Go ahead and throw your life away"

I think this song is about to live with a person who is an alcoholic or a drug - addicted. Many people say that this song might be about a unhappy realationship, but
#27? Wow... Surprised its rated so low because its a guaranteed top 5 song by Breaking Benjamin.
My top 5:
5. Dear Agony
4. Sooner or Later
3. I Will Not Bow
2. The Diary of Jane
1. Anthem of the Angels
[Newest]Seriously? 27?
That is all that needs to be said

My top 10
1. The Diary of Jane
2. I Will Not Bow
3. Breath
4. Sooner or Later
5. Without You
6. Had Enough
7. So Cold
8. Dear Agony
9. Until the End
10. Evil Angel

29Break My Fall
How is this song rated so low? It's obvious a lot of people have never heard it... Give it a chance people!
This should really be at least in the top 20, if not the top 10. The lyrics are meaningful, emotional, the riffs are great, the melodies are beautiful, and frankly, it sends shivers down my spine. Listen to this before you vote.
A Breaking Benjamin song that conveys an almost positive message however it is still awesome and super melodic. It's not my favorite but it's definitely in my top10

I'm sorry but the first 2 albums really need a lot more recognition than what they're getting. I hate to sound like the old school guy, but I honestly think the first 2 albums are by far the best!
I second that! The first album is the defining one. Every song is awesome. The top ten on here is really not a good representation. Yeah some of them are good, but nothing like the first album. And this song, is just my favorite off of the album, but its a difficult choice.


Home represents everything that growing up is: half the time wanting to be allowed more freedom ("Can you let me go"), the other half just wanting to return to when things were easy and stories like the Wizard of Oz were believable ("There's no place like home"). Unforgettable.
[Newest]This is easily my favorite Breaking Benjamin song EVER. I don't know what you freaks are talking about. If I could chose a song for someone to sing to me on my last day of my life than this would probably be it

31Into the Nothing
One of the best songs ever made. You have to listen to it to understand how good it is. You'll find yourself listening to it over ad over again.


Should be in the top 5, is a master piece
1. -until the end
2. -follow
3. -give me a sign
4. -into the nothing
5. -what lies beneath
6. - diary of jane
This one is way too low on the list... But then of course, ALL Breaking Benjamin songs deserve to be in the top ten.


[Newest]A song which brings tears even from a stone hearted people... it is ten times better dan So Cold and Blow Me Away... dis song defines standard of Breaking Benjamin...

32Simple Design
First half of the song is fantastic
The entire song is just a jam and could have easily been a single. The lyrics are very well written, the guitar parts feel inspired, and the drum beat is probably the best drum beat on any Breaking Benjamin song before Chad Szeliga joined the band.

Are you kidding me? This is one of their best songs, it's as good as Polyamorous if not better. The lyrics are awesome too:
Run away, make hate and get laid, get laid. You tie me up, I've had enough so medicate, medicate.
This is one of the best song, it is so catchy.

Can I live forever!
These words shake me...
What The.. ? Who added this to the list? There's not such song named Saturate, it's the name of their first album... Oh God
This deserves to be in the top 10. My personal favorite

Alright, sure it isn't top 5 great, but Topless is such a good song, and the lyrics show how much the alcohol was affecting Ben. This should be at least somewhere close to the top ten, not number 22
LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. Not sure why it's so low down!
How is THIS #21? There are so many songs that should be rated above this (cough Sooner or Later, cough cough Break My Fall, cough cough cough Into the Nothing).

36Who Wants to Live Forever
I live this song! It was first written by queen, another one of my favorite bands, which makes this song sound so much better!
Originally created by Queen, Breaking Benjamin perfects it! Very passionate lyrics and melody that just gives you the chills and a mix of sorrow, hope, and peace! It isn't as moved as other BB songs but nevertheless, awesome!

Number 39! WHAT THE HELL! It should be at top 20, its so good that I can't stop listening to it!
You gotta be kidding me. 39? Wow. I figured this song would at least be 15-20
Are you KIDDING ME?! This is one of their, if not, their GREATEST SONGS EVER!
[Newest]It will be at top 5

38Wish I May
Should be much much much higher. This is one of the first Breaking Benjamin songs that I heard, and I loved it so much that I had to hear more of their stuff. Please, If you haven't heard this song, you must listen to it.
Great song, third breaking benjamin song I heard. It should be much higher. This song has an epic chorus. Its just so loud and powereful which makes it so cool!
I love this song best song ever

39Shallow Bay
An awesome song. Not so much because of the meaning, but it just rocks. Definitely shows the harder side of Breaking Benjamin's music. Extremely good rhythm and keeps me captivated.
A favorite off of their first and one of their best albums Saturate, along with Home, Medicate and Water
I thinks that this is one of the best songs of breaking benjamin
[Newest]This should be top 5 in my opinion the song punches rhythmically at the right times then comes backs to "and I fell upon a shallow bay"! Its really filled with energy at the right times.

Best chorus ever. Why the is this song so low in this list, you people obviously didn't listen too all their songs, only the popular ones, you should listen to all their albums, then you are qualified to vote
Wow people this is the best song by breaking benjamin it is way better than the dairy of jane (to me) listen to it more than once and tell me it is not good. Really underrated and what about
This is the most complex and beautiful song that BB has written!

Extremely underrated, awesome beat. How did the likes of Without You & Anthem Of Angels get ahead of this?
I listen to breaking Benjamin a lot. So much that I've listenes and learned the name of each and every song they have released. Many favourites have been changed but this song is what I wouldn't change when ever it comes on in my play list. An amazing song and totally overrated. It shouldn't be this below in the list. It must be around top 10.

What man! Seriously you guys have no sense of music. This song is supposed to be in top 10 or at least top 15!
The solo part is exceptional. And the end part is out of the world man!
Awesome song, the beginning is epic and so is the end. Very under-appreciated album in general, Saturate was their best album in my opinion.
Who the hell votes here? Where are the people with taste? At least give this song a shot, it's worth it!
[Newest]This is my absolute favorite off of Saturate. The drum solo in the beginning is LEGENDARY! Very empowering song and deserves to be in the top 10, then again all Breaking Benjamin songs deserve a high title.

43No Games
Beautiful Song, Totally underrated... Do have a listen if you have not.
One of BB's most underrated song. Then again, this list shouldn't exist for me. If you ask me, there is NO BB song better than the other. I think Diary Of Jane is as good as Ordinary Man. I think Home, is as good as Blow Me Away. Here We Are, as good as Give Me A Sign, etc. To me they are all on the same level. I may give Sooner Or Later a lot more priority since it was the song that introduced me to Breaking Benjamin.
The best breaking benjamin song of all time.
[Newest]This is their best song.

Great song by BB... almost as good as polyamorous when it comes to saturate, on the heavier side :D surprised its not higher, love the chorus

45Better Days
Are you guys sure this song doesn't deserve this place...such an awesome song with awesome lyrics...hear this song for life...
The middle and end are OK, but the beginning is EPIK!

46Enjoy the Silence

47Lady Bug

Their newest song, rocks my brain out! I hope the new album will be good like this.
Nice song. I like it's similar to their old stuff. I won't be dissapointed then

49Lie to Me

50Take Me Under
Beautiful song of three days grace Ft. Benjamin burnley. This song really beautiful.

51Natural Life
Such a simple yet amazing song. I love the simple poly-rhythm (6/8 over 4/4).
Best bridge of any song I've heard; BB or not. I love the simplicity of the song. It needs to be top 15.

52One of a Kind

53Ordinary Man
Gawd I love this song

54Here We Are
love this song. The solo is amazing and the whole song is a perfect mix of "fast-paced" rock and slow, calm bits in the middle. And the solo, again. I love it. Maybe not number 1, but number 37 is just ridiculous.
No words...
Absolutely amazing and totally underrated
This song being at number 33 is a joke, the guitar solo and the meaning of the song is brilliant and I can't believe how underrated it is.
That solo sounds absolutely beautiful.

55Next to Nothing
This song really should be higher on the list
Its amazing and way too UNDERRATED

How the hell is this out of the top 20? This song keeps me pumped. Its up there with without you, away and I will not bow.
This is the most straightforward rock song that BB has ever put forward, with drop D and a flatted fifth riff. Thus, it's probably one of their most accessible tracks yet, as you will literally find nobody who can't headbang to this song.

Very nice you should hear
