Awesome song must listen first time I heard it I heard it for the next few weaks continuously! Should be in top 3! Must listen!
Simply amazing! The lyrics are so deep. It really moves me whenever I listen to this song. Goosebumps.
This is arguably the best song by Daughtry. From The first time I heard the song, I fell in live with it. The lyrics and the music. MESMERISING! LOVE you DAUGHTRY.

5Over You
Come on.. This is the best daughtry song in my opinion. This song helped me through my awful breakup with my boyfriend. Just listening to this song and singing along to daughtry makes me feel so much better... THIS IS THE BEST BREAKUP SONG EVER. You should try it... "well, I'm picking up the pieces, spending all of these years putting my heart back together.. " TRY IT. I promise you wont be disappointed.
I mean come on man... Seriously? This song totally deserves to be in the top 3's... Why in the world this song doing here in 6? I have heard a lot of songs and this song my friends, is simply one of the best!
This song rocks. If you guys have not heard it, you have not heard a real good song. It deserves to be in top 3
I heard this song day and night. One of the best songs eve
[Newest]It's so deep that I'm getting drowned

6No Surprise
Easily. It's their catchiest song and it has the best lyrics, this is the song that got them famous in the first place. Number 1.
What a song! I just love the song from the start... The intro is just superb. And the lyrics are so meaningful, thumbs up, really awesome song!
Very nice song!.. Nice catchy tune nd lyrics... This song deserves to be in the top spot...!
[Newest]I just love the music and the words. It can easily get anyone moving along. Definitely their best song so far! Old is gold!

7Life After You
I don't care what the votes say; this needs to be at least in the top 3.
How come this song is at no.7. This is one of the best song from their album leave this town. VERY TALENTED LYRICS. Can't UNDERSTAND WHY NO ONE GAVE MUCH ATTENTION TOWARDS THIS SONG.
I adore this song! The most beautiful lyrics ever... And so relatable... And his voice is so good... It really deserves to be in the top 3!
[Newest]This is by far my favourite Daughtry song EVER! I love it!

8Crawling Back To You
Awesome song from their new album Break The Spell
Have you liked no surprise the 1st time
You'll Love it
Its released after long time
But it'll make to top 5, deserves it.


Are you serious?! This should be in top 5! The best song the Daughtry's newest album; Break The Spell. The song is very addicting and the music just makes everything so perfect I can't stop repeating it again and again, I guess I'm obsessed
This is the best they've taken out so far! It's simply an amazing ballad that mixes their thoft side with their hardest core sound. Amazing amazing amazing
[Newest]Top 2 after What about NOw

9Call Your Name
I can't believe that this is on 11. This needs a lot of, lot of votes. Its one of my favourites by Daughtry.
I wonder if people go by the online ratings, or the popularity in their friend circles, probably this might become their favourite after listening to this.
For those who haven't heard of this song, I highly recommend you to do so.

It has an awesome start on the acoustic, has a piano which you'd love and a great ending on the guitar with Chris raising his voice and giving that force which he has in his voice.
I thought it should be in the podiums. I really love this song. This song has got soothing rhythm and perfect lyrics. I really get lost listening to the song and in-song transition is awesome! How can this be at 11!
I literally don't care about this song that much. It reminds of the Three Stooges movie. You know, Larry, Moe and Curly were fighting in that place, and Moe tells Larry and Curly he doesn't want to be bothered with them, anymore, and then they run off, and it looks as if Moe was singing the song, in Chris Daughtry's voice!
But. don't worry. It was just something I dreamed about.
[Newest]Love this song so much

10Feels Like Tonight
This is such a good song! IT deserves top 5, though!

The Contenders

11Waiting for Superman
This is seriously one of the best songs by Daughtry! Correction- Best song by Daughtry. Why isn't it in the top 5?

She's waiting for superman to,
Pick her up!

She's talking to angels,
She's counting the stars,
She's making a wish on a passing star.
She's dancing with strangers,
She's falling apart.
She's waiting for superman,
To pick her up.

Such an awesome song! ^^
This song should so be in the top five pick. This song is sweet and sensual, like a light whisper of someone's thoughts. Plus the video is the best. That guy is some kind of angel. Love this song.
Amazing Song By Daughtry the Legends! Must get in in the top 3!
[Newest]Everyone needs a Superman, come on! For me this song is my favourite and has been since it was released. It makes me think of my Superman

12Start of Something Good
Damn! Start of something good is on the 17th?! This sing can uplift the pessimists and make them optimistic. Make it a start of something good. It is ought to be in the top 10 at least. It makes me jolly too. And am sure It will for the others too.

Daughtry is just Great. All his songs are like fantastic. He is my God ( in music. One of them, though). And I respect him a lot.
Guys, this must be no1. It says nothing wrong and it made me realise that I have to fight for love... 'Cause I've really been on top of the world and a clown... DAUGHTRY is the best band ever... I'm from Croatia, love ya
One meaningful song.. Lets start of something good
[Newest]Listened to this non stop when I first started seeing my girlfriend :-) 2 years on still something good ;-)

13Losing My Mind
The Best song by DAUGHTRY till date, although their album was not up to the level but this song nailed it...

In love with this song since I've heard it, just listen to it and you'll realize how top class song it is.

Amazing Lyrics, Beautiful Chorus, and of course world class music by daughtry, and the voice modulation by chris, just love it...

One day it will reach the top spot or at least top 3...

Unbeatable till date...


Great song I would put this one in my top ten list, but I love all Daughtry songs so it would have to be a top 20 list, also Start of Something Good is a great song and Never Gonna fall Down in time these will be a top ten song in terms of Daughtry songs
"One part angel and one part danger but it's the kinda crazy I like, you got me losing my mind! "

So catchy- nice work, Daughtry!

14Learn My Lesson
Dude, this is like THE song of for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. I mean how can it be here? It should be number one, I mean its so meaning full! I listen to this song when I don't feel good and it just gives me sudden boost of energy!
Someone just stabbed me, twenty-three? Doesn't belong here. It's one of the best songs I have heard, it can give ' what about now a run for its money. Deserves to be, in the top three or five if one must.
It is better than the number one song on this list. Well that's what I think... But it doesn't really matter to me because I love this song.
[Newest]It's the best song daughtry. no doubt about it. How can it be in number 16

15One Last Chance
Common guys... This song off the limits... I am not saying that it should on the top but this song have the capacity to be in the top ten list...
When I downloaded daughtry albums this song not included... Must be a deluxe edition piece...
Awesome lyrics! So give the song a chance to be heard by you (y)
One of my most played daughtry songs should definitely be in the top ten
[Newest]Easily should be top 3

16Open Your Eyes
I love All Daughtry's song But I want to Help this Amazing song Out and get higher on this list!

Such Meaning to this song Sometimes We Do Need to Open Up Our Eyes and take a look around instead of being oblivious to whats really going on!


This song is beautiful... So beautiful.
If you listen closely, there's a story behind it. He tells the story of a woman who loses a man that she kept very close to her heart. And what happens at the end? Well... Go listen to it for yourself!
This song seems to have more meaning than the other songs. I like all the songs but this song has meaning.
[Newest]It's great how he sings songs with deeper meanings like this.

17Used To
Are you kidding me!?... This is the best song by 'em!
Deserves to be way up there!

Totally under rated song from the new album Baptized. This song is epic. Must give it a try. Deserves to be on top 10. Come on guys vote up!
I gave it a try after looking at the list. Definitely one of the best works by Chris.
Should be at least in top 20. This song got me the feels

19Maybe We're Already Gone
This song is so AWESOME! I can't believe it's a bonus track! It has a similar chilling vibe as "All These Lives."
Not a bad song at all


20Outta My Head

21Everything But Me
Deserve to be top 10
Emotional song (Y) Deserves to be even in top 5!

This is an amazing song. All his songs are amazing, I especially like this one! His voice is truly amazing. Daughtry forever! Great singer and great songs :o
Ugh! This song reminds me of that stupid Dark Shadows movie with Johnny Depp. I like the deeper version of this thing, better.
really great song... chris daughtry has an amazing voice.


23Break the Spell
I have the whole daughtry discography from self titled album to baptized, and listened to every song, but believe me, this one has best vocals, it gives me goose bumps, god bless chris daughtry.
Its from a new album. It will definitely make it to at least top 5.
Love this song. Heard it once and fell in love with it!
[Newest]23! Should be in the top ten for sure

24What I Want
How could this song be on 14? This is their best song... Great solo, great beat... it is everithing great on this song... Daughtry ROCKS...
"What I Want is what I need" great chorus.
This song really pumps me up and is a great rock tune. This song features slash, the guitarist from Guns N' Roses. His guitar makes this song. It should have easily gotten well into the top ten.

25You Don't Belong
Yeah, this makes me think about the old Three Stooges from the 1930s turning into werewolves. So scary.
So awesome in Concert!


26Long Live Rock & Roll
I just love what Daughtry did in this song


Such a great song by Daughtry but still much behind...

28There And Back Again
Wow! I can't believe this song is higher than this! Utterly Preposterous!

29Ghost of Me
The song which got me into this band...
Definitely.. 1 of their best songs. Vote for it m/
Dis is 1 of their best songs... Wats wrong with all you people

One of the best songs the band's ever made
Should definitely be in the top 5
It's from their new album, so its low in the ratings
Listen to it and you would definitely vote for it


Hands down- this is my favorite. It has a good tune and it made me want to listen to it over and over.
Reminiscent of classic rock and roll, I think we all need a reminder right about now...
[Newest]Are you kidding me?!.. This is by far their best song.. This is what

31All These Lives
this song should have made the list. it talked about kidnapping, "Posters hung on building walls
Of missing faces" "Months go by without the cause,
The clues, or traces" "They're gonna find you, just believe"


Love this song it's my favorite from that album

32Gone Too Soon
Amazing song, one of their best actually. Should be in a better rank for sure.
Great song.. Should definitely be in the top 10
Great Song, should be much higher
[Newest]Bittersweet song <3 it

I don't care if I am the only one who votes for this song but it really deserves to be at least the top ten it is my favorite daughtry song and you will immediately fall in love with it. It reminds you of true love and learning to forgive and love again. You should really take about 5 minutes and listen to the whole song and I guarentee that you will fall in love with it. I know from personal experience
Come on guys this one has to be up there
The Cannon goes Boom

Love this song =]

Saw them in columbus twice over the years =]

35Traffic Light
Many people call me the biggest fan of Chris Daughtry. I have heard every song he has ever sung since American Idol. But out of all songs, I want to vote this because it is a really good song and it deserves to be higher... Don't believe try listening yourself!
One of my favorite songs by him, it definitely deserves to be higher on the list. Daughtry makes great music and he's an amazing singer. Keep up the amazing work.

[Newest]This song is literally amazing

36Tennessee Line
"I open my lungs to breathe in forgiveness and love
Haunting me now reminders of how I used to be
And on down the road my troubles are sure to follow
Looking out the window, the hell if know where I will go
So I'll just keep on driving"
When I lost all my music, this was the second Daughtry song I looked for. It deserves to be in top 10. Simply beautiful

37I'll Fight
This song is amazing! The lyrics has a beautiful meaning and this song truly inspires me:) It deserves a higher rank than 43! Its one of their best songs from their album Baptized!
Definitely deserves a higher rank than 42 in my opinion! One of their best songs from their new album "Baptized"!
EPIC song from Baptized

Love this song because it captures that feeling right at the beginning of a relationship ending, where you are taking inventory and not sure what the impact is going be yet.

Fantastic song, can't belive it's rated that low, for me the best Daughtry song.
How could this song be missed? Love it endlessly.
This is such an underrated song. This gotta be among the top 3.
[Newest]Three words :

Worst. Song. EVER!

One of their best song! Such sweet lyrics. Definitely deserves a higher rank

41Rescue Me
This song has to be one of the best songs I have listened to. I am a big Daughtry fan, and I have followed him ever since he was on American Idol. This song just shows a lot of different ranges that he can hit, and the lyrics are perfect for anyone going through a tough time.
One of the best songs by Daughtry, can't believe it's not rated as first on the list. Amazing song, in love with it, I have it on repeat!

42Outta My Mind
This is Daughtry's current most playing song. Don't you agree guys?
Great and fast paced

43Long Way Down
Chris daughtry is being featured by timbaland in this song, but Chris sings the whole song.
Absolutely incredible song!
Chris has a hypnotizing voice!
I like all his songs but this one is great since it strays from his normal style

The only thing Worse then a Hater is a Traitor!


This song is so true and so awesome, it's really catchy and relatable! Can't get that mix often. Why don't more people vote this one?!
This song is from his new album Baptized It's so catchy and I love the lyrics

Awesome song highly underrated good vocals daughtry shows a different side of him I love it

47We're Not Gonna Fall
One of the more UpLifting never give up I've ever heard!


48Every Time You Turn Around
Amazing vocals, beat ad lyrics equate to a song that is able to blow my mind. Simple yet perfect.
Who rates these songs? I don't think they've listened to this one at all.

49Long Way
Really good song of his B-Sides album


50Who's They
One of the best songs by them!
Oh, my God! Love this!

Come on people this is one of my most fave songs off his latest album!


52On the Inside
This song made me think about the Three Stooges Movie, and how Larry and Curly are telling Moe how evil, mean and cruel he is.
This is a really good song but it's often forgotten!


EPIC! Give it a listen ASAP!

54Back Again
I hope you be back again :'(.. It reminds me of someone

55Wild Heart
First comment... One of his best to date and its 51 :-O

Such a nice song!


584 A.M.

59The Past

60Drown In You
Man this song is amazing!
"I don't wanna drown in you. I'm sinking then I'm torn in two. So when you see me come up for air don't try to hold me down, just save me now! "
This song is Sublime.
This song was included in Arkham City Game THE ALBUM.. Amazing Guitar Work...
Drown in You should be in the top 10! Its amazing with the guitars and his voice shines in this song!
[Newest]This is actually a really great song I love Chris's Voice in this one!

61What I Meant to Say
Why it was placed in position 61? I disagree... should it be in the top 10... This one is great because the songs what I meant to say this with great lyrics jarring emotions and very fantastic
Therefore I do not agree
Dude! Come on man! 19th?! R you serious? This should at the top of the list!
Good song to let out a scream or 3


#62?! Why is this song so low on the list? It's wonderful!
I hear this often on the radio!


Brilliant song, awesome lyrics one of my favourite song.
Not his most popular song due to it being a bonus track but it's quite nice!


I'm not gonna lie to you. This is one of my favorite songs.

This song is definitely not one of his best. That being said, I wouldn't put it dead last or bottom 10. His worst was his song called sorry.
Give me a sign that comes out of nowhere... I LOVE this song @@
