The Top Ten

The Red
the emotion put into this song, makes it incredible.


Love this song for its ability to express so much using a word choice that is relatable. This song expresses anger beyond one's control as well as the violence and the power of anger. Being emotionally controlled is an addicting and frightening feeling.
this is the best song because they won a place in the music for the red and they are recognize not only for this song I´m sure off that but this is the one
[Newest]Totally agree! Top song in my book. Love love love this one!

2Send the Pain Below
What the hell is going on this is there best song. the red and vitamin are are songs that you can sick of this you can listen to anytime seriously people you have to listen to this before you vote. it's there best piece of work they ever made just please listen to the full song and you'll see what I mean
This song rocks! To me its really soothing and just does wonders to my ears. It sounds like they put a lot of passion into this song. Not like they don't on their other songs, but this one has plenty of passion. Best part is that this song never gets old. I still listen to it often.
No competition folks! The emotions and feelings in this song are epic... the scream's nice, and the guitar, well, Chevelle never got their guitar riffs wrong!
[Newest]Greatest Chevelle Song of all time. Without question should be #1!

3Vitamin R
The best chevelle song ever. Look at the lyrics dude! This is chevelle at its best. No wonder it made the top of the list! I notice sleep walking elite hasnt been added. Care to correct the deficit?
The opening riff is what draws you in but the song is strong until it ends
Wow I can't believe this is only number 3. It is probably my favorite songs. Just feel the lyrics rattling inside your brain. Love this song

4The Clincher
Not only is this Chevelle's best song, but it's one of the best rock songs ever. Send the Pain Below and The Red are ALMOST as good as this song, but The Clincher is Chevelle's masterpiece. The last minute and a half of the song is probably the best, a mixture between great, meaningful lyrics and screaming like no one else. The music video.. Well, I'll admit it, it sucked. But the song itself is amazing, and reccomended towards everybody who like rock, Christian rock, or just plain old good music! :-)
All chevelle songs are Great but this Has it All Heaviness Tool-Like Moments and Out of this world Riffs Great Background Vocals.
How is this song not in the top 5? This is one of the only songs I would keep repeating, it's that good! I'm a huge fan of Chevelle but this song is absolutely brilliant!
[Newest]Its not bad what so ever, I wouldn't say its great either. The Red or Hats off to the bull is better.

5Sleep Apnea
Guitar riffs in the beginning pull me right in! Can listen to over and over again and still get chills. Brief pause after solo is a perfect lead-in to it's hardcore finish
Without a doubt their best song ever. I listen to this on repeat and never get tired up. Gets me pumped up
One of the best songs a man can ever hear ; totally amazing
Perfect riffs and vocals really one their best

1 of my favorite songs by them.
Better than any of the songs above it with the possible exception of Sleep Apnea.
Amazingly good chorus, great lyrics and fantastic bass and guitar sounds

7Face to the Floor
Nothing not to like about this song. My favorite Chevelle song ever. The song has it all.
Hands down best song on the list none of the other songs even compete
At least it's in the too ten, but it deserves even more than this spot on the list.
[Newest]Most awesome and thrilling song by Chevelle.

8Letter From a Thief
Dude Epic song! Master poetic genius that tricking Pete. A lot of the words hit the spot in this song its crazy. Definitely top 3!
"Letter From A Thief" is an amazing song, 10 out of 10 for sure. This is Chevelle at their best right here.
"Best of Chevelle"... I don't know why its on 9. Video and the song.. I give 10 on 10.
[Newest]My fave song by them. One of their hookiest songs ever!

9Well Enough Alone
The scream in the first part it blows your mind and the guitar riff after oh $h! T the slow smooth blowing mind verses takes your breath away and the chorus All I could say is Oh My God why is this song in no. 8 this song is much better than vitamin r holy smokes guys I promise this song is the one you need
This should be the second song on the list!

10I Get It
This song truly rocks. The tone of pete's voice is beautiful and intriguing. The bass is heavy and rippling. The emotion is there, and the scream is perfectly timed.
it truly demonstrates pete's singing abilities
its gonna stay for very long on my hot playlist;)
This song is true genius, any one claiming to like chevelle has to listen to this amazingly brilliant song!
[Newest]The best song of chevelle

The Contenders

"... I want to fight, I want to fight, I want to prove I'm right... " well, I'll just say that these guys are amazing... This song is one of my favourites.

12An Evening With El Diablo
This is the song I wake to on monday mornings, it literally leaves you PUMPED, by far one of chevelle's best
Awesome tune I can listen to over and over and not get bored with it.
This should be #1 incredible heavy build up.

13Hats Off to the Bull
Should really be higher on the list. I love the album because of this song. Sure, face to the floor is a great song too, but this song tops it in my opinion.
This should be number one... Red was my first favorite Chevelle song, but this one takes the cake
Best Chevelle song, pretty heavy and very upbeat at the same time.

There aren't many songs that give me chills as intense as Saferwaters. This song has been my favorite Chevelle song ever since I first heard it. I can't believe that it is so low on the list.
I love this song so much. The lyrics and meaning is really deep. One of my all-time favorite songs ever. Great job Chevelle.
The best on Vena Sera, the best in the Dean era, possibly their best ever, and certainly underrated.
[Newest]Great sound, great flow and clearly one of the greatest and most incredible songs ever written!

15Shameful Metaphors
This song is so intensely beautiful, sad and mournful over loneliness yet also somewhat angry and hopeful. It builds beautifully up to the Shameful Metaphors part, the climax if you will. Seriously I love Chevelle and this song is 100 times better than their other stuff.
This is an amazing song really! It got me into chevelle.. I recently started listening to them.. 1 word: Amazing!
One of the first songs that got me interested in Chevelle, this should easily crack the top ten!

Chevelle is underrated, this song is even underrated, maybe what made their music good in the first place.
Beats pump me up with adrenaline.
Their best song by far.

17Comfortable Liar
If you're looking for the heaviest Chevelle song, then hands down this is it! One of their best songs if you like their heavier stuff.
This track is simply phenomenal and doesn't get enough pub.
One of their best. Deserves a higher spot than 18!

18Take Out the Gunman
I love this song. Because it is new it has yet to rival the great Chevelle songs, but with time it will grow to become a classic.
Just listen to it, any one who love alt-metal or hard rock will love this


1 of the best rock songs I've heard in a hell of a long time

19Get Some
How is this song not higher? Some of chevelle's best work in my opinion and hard as hell! Maybe its not visceral enough for some but it kicks ass none the less!
This hard rock song... should be way higher on the list!
Best breakdown ever gets me going crazy every single time. Must listen amazing!

20Emotional Drought

21Breach Birth
A beautiful combination of melodic and heavy. Something Chevelle never ceases to do perfectly.

22Still Running
This is the song that god me interested in Chevelle
Are you serious, #20 this song should be at least top 10 chevelle at their best... enough said
Great song with good lyrics. It reminds me of tool in a way.

23The Fad
And incredible tone, so fascinating and eerie, yet just enough to throw your emotions over the edge. Don't underestimate this song. Should be number one!
I can't believe this song isn't higher on the list. To me its #1. If you haven't heard this one you gotta check it out.
No mainstream here. Pure heavy, fast, Chevelle

24The Meddler
A thousand times better than Face to the Floor (which isn't even close to the best song off Hat's off to the bull let alone the 7th best chevelle song). The bass line in the verse beautifully builds up to the fantastic chorus.
A powerful and flawless song by them that should get a lot more credit. Definitely better than face to the floor.
Best Chevelle song I've heard. Really melodic and rhythm is catchy at the same time.

I love all of Chevelle's songs but this is the one I can never get enough of, I smile every time it comes on. The bit just after the guitar solo when everything gets really quiet and then suddenly it all starts up again is just amazing. Pure skill.
Can listen to this song over and over. Love the riff and the vocals.

26Fell Into Your Shoes
This is just purely amazing, that's all I have to say. I'm actually really surprised that this isn't in the top 10, never mind not being on here at all. Some of their best vocals and the music is calm yet energetic.
Why is this outside the top fifteen? I understand not as many people have heard it, but come on. It definitely shouldn't be in 39th. Pete's vocals are at their best here and I could listen to this all day.

27Hunter Eats Hunter
Sounds like chevelle went into ultra-drive in this one, amazing rock song
I know this song is newer so it's not getting the love, but it's a great song

28Straight Jacket Fashion
How is this NOT higher up?
It's my favorite song by them. Full of pure raw emotion and just amazing!
Deserves to be top 3 at least


30Family System
This song is amazing! The guitar riff is awesome, definitely one of their heaviest. The screaming at the end is really intense. Should be way higher
How is this not higher? The aggression on this song is unmatched and it's quite possibly their heaviest song ever.
Easily one of my all time favorite songs; I think it should be top ten!

31Panic Prone
Definitely their best song. I'ts so emotional, and relatable to everyone, and is truly from the heart of Chevelle. I love it, it literally made me cry the first time I heard it
I'm surprised this song is so low down on the list. This song is awesome.

Come on... Easily has a great guitar riffs, yet creates catchy at the same time. The solo on 2:23 could possibly be the best of the band in my opinion.

The main guitar in this song is simple yet beautiful, should be higher up on the list. One of my personal favorite songs by Chevelle.

34Bend the Bracket

35Roswell's Spell
This one is my favorite of Chevelle. It's lyrics are beautiful and so deep, about what humans can find within themselves. Truly a journey of self discovery.

The verses' question-answer vocals & guitar is so aggressive and chilling. The "does anybody see anyone? " chorus gives me goosebumps every time.
I love the introspection that the song displays about looking out to the stars to determine if we really had visitors and then using that knowledge to determine our own position in the cosmos. It's so real.
One of my favorites! The lyrics are so deep and chilling. Pete's vocals are incredible, the entire song is beautiful start to finish.

I'm a huge Chevelle fan. Almost psychological disorder status. But when I think really hard, Humanoid is probably my favorite song and is among many that. Make Vena Sera my favorite album. I have liked them since Point #1, and this song... Even two albums later still gives me goosebumps and sends waves of emotion. Surprised no one has voted for it at all!
How is this song not higher 50 is suprising this song got me into chevelle and one I could repeat over and over. Need to be in top 5

37Don't Fake This
Deserves a better stop really!

Don't underestimate this. Great song!

39Mexican Sun
My personal favorite Chevelle song! Good riff and bass. The vocals, to me, fit the song very well and the song in general, when I first heard it, surprised me because it's unpredictable.
This song is great. I started not liking it but as time goes I realized it kicks ass

40Prima Donna
Anyone reading this, give this song a listen and a vote. Its new so I know it will never be high on the list but this song might be one of my favorites. It a softer song but I think that's when pete is at his best.
I rather enjoy how calm this song is. Great vocals. A simple song with a simple message. I feel the newness of this song is affecting its rating. Oh well... I felt it at least needed to be on the list.

41Point #1

42Same Old Trip
This is such a great song. It's a pretty simple/straight-forward song and the way he hits those high notes are in the chorus is simply amazing. I'm surprised this is so low on the list, but I guess it's new.

This song is amazing from the lyrics to the guitar. The intro is also a commendable approach in a chevelle song if I ever heard one. The ultimatum is that this song is also the first of the first, and is a brilliant masterpiece of Chevelle's quality. No song like it because this song is the best! Anybody that claims this to not be their best is obviously a fool.

While I am very much into chevelle's heavier songs this one has just the right amount and I think anyone could enjoy listening to this song not one of the top songs but still a very good song to me

Hidden Gem... Amazing guitar riffs

46Highland's Apparition
Can't believe this one hadn't even been added! This one would be in my top 5 for sure along with 'Send the Pain below' 'Forfeit' 'Panice Prone' ah so many good songs!

One of their best new songs. Has a catchy and danceable beat to it and some nice heavy riffs. Great song all together
Hunter eats hunter and Take out the gunman are pretty good but this is by far the best song on La Gargola.

48Grab Thy Hand
Wow! This should be way higher on the list! If you like Chevelle heavy this should be your song! The best heavy riff Chevelle ever created!
The screaming in this song is AMAZING. My favorite song, hands down. The vocals are just too good.

49Until You're Reformed
This is such an underrated song, even for Chevelle fans. It is truly magic. If you haven't listened to it, do it now. I guarantee you will like it after the first listen!
Warning: You will be in a trance for days when you listen to this for the first time
An energetic rollercoaster you can't help but want to bang your head to

50Another Know It All
I actually really love how heavy this song is. I don't know why it's so low on the list.

I feel like I am taking crazy pills. How is Saturdays not considered their best one... Why was it not on the radio!?



54Blank Earth
Arguably their most underrated song, "Blank Earth" is tied with "I Get It" as my favorite Chevelle song. The alternating acoustic/electric guitars, the lyrics, and the raw emotion make this track worthy of their top ten.
Really amazing song. Give it a listen if you haven't already. It might change your life. It's the early stuff, very raw.

55An Island


57A New Momentum

58Wonder What's Next
Why isn't this song even ON the list? Should be at the top..

From beginning to end the most well orchestrated song in Chevelle's repertoire.
By far one of their best songs from start to finish

60This Circus
Really? No one bother to mention this song? I wake up to this song almost everyday... Every Chevelle song is unbelievable so I guess its almost excusable, almost...

61Sleep Walking Elite
This song is one of my favorites, just listened to the solo just before the end

62To Return
This song gives me the feels, it's so moving.


64Prove to You

65Paint the Seconds
What! This song is way good, it doesn't deserve this spot

66Choking Game
Like a Rush, so good, great lyrics, great sound. The ending riffs are amazing. I wish I heard them play it live last week, may be the best song on the album, but it is tough since the album is so solid.

67The Damned

68Glimpse of the Con
Literally brought me to tears. Now I love all Chevelle heavy and slow songs, but this song deserves so much more attention. Beautiful song for the afterlife. 10/10

69One Lonely Visitor

70In Debt to Earth


72It's No Good

73Midnight to Midnight

74An Island

75An Island
