Best Jimmy Eat World Songs

The Top TenXW

1The Middle

There was a time in the early part of the 2000s (2001) where so many good rock songs came out. And this song is one of them. - BKAllmighty

First song I heard by them and had it memorized before I even knew the name of the band. Awesome

I bet most people picked this just because they know it there are better jimmy eat world songs I know because I am a huge fan and even they said it in a interview that they thought that this song was not as good as other (most) jimmy eat world songs

One of the best songs ever, sounds a lot like another good song: Everlong by Foo Fighters

This song is for reals one of the most emotional, deep, and moving thing I've ever heard. You don't listen to this song, you experience this work of art.

In my opinion the best song ever! The amazing layer-upon-layer intro, the superbly heartfelt, beautiful lyrics, I cannot really describe how much I love this song! I remember listening to it just before my 23rd birthday and was a special moment for me!

No other song on this list can match the indescribable beauty of this song. Give it a listen and it might change your life...

This song changed my life

Brilliant song and even better album one of the only albums I can listen to all the way through without skipping a track.

This song is what got me into Jimmy Eat World. If only all of their songs were like this.

I dare you to listen to this song without electricity in your veins.

Brilliant song, makes every hair on my body stand on end

Awesome song, very different from their usual songs and just great drums guitar and lush vocals!

I don't listen to Jimmy Eat World much anymore but this song still plays in my head every now and then. One of the most memorable songs of my childhood too

How is this not in the top 5? Very underrated on here, I'm surprised by it's current position! - 8gerrard8

Great melody and awesome lyrics. For me "You kill me, you build me up but just to watch me break" is one of the best song lines I've ever heard. In my opinion their best song!

One of their first songs I ever heard and I have to admit: I fell in love with their music...

How is this not in the top ten, let alone top 5.

It is such a moving song.

If you've lived 20 years on this planet and aren't moved by this song, you may not be human.

I'm baffled this is not at least top three this song flows so well

This beats The middle! Pain always gets me in a good mood, just because it is so upbeat. Not to mention the cool 2nd verse. It takes my pain away!

This song hooks just anyone up aka this song rocks! It does take my pain away!

It's simply amazing, very catchy tune alongside great lyrics have made this song really worth listening to

7A Praise Chorus

The first song I ever listened to by them. Absolutely amazing, and the best song I've heard by them. Sweetness comes in a close second, but this song really is just absolutely fantastic. 10 out of 10 recommend.

It's sad to see how little recognition this song gets, this is an excellent song. Give it a try. Top 3 for me.

8Hear You Me

A beautiful beautiful song. Really touches my heart every time I hear it. Jimmy Eat World has sung such a emotional and breathtaking song. I am very young but I am very fortunate I got to hear it.

Amazing song... I first heard it in the movie "The Butterfly Effect" and was instantly addicted to it... If you haven't heard of it yet then go and listen!

This song is so emotional! I know it's not for everybody but if you ever feel sad type it into YouTube!

Love this song so much. The vocals are so rad.

9Get It Faster

Should definitely be higher!

10For Me This Is Heaven

"For Me This is Heaven" sets Jimmy Eat World's most common tone through their entire existence since 99's Clarity album. Lyrically, the band is immaculate, with this song serving as a prime and pioneering example with lines like "The first star I see may not be a star" (see Konstantine by Something Corporate), and "Do you still feel the butterflies? Can you still hear the last goodbyes? ".

The Contenders

11Nothing Wrong

This is such an underrated song. It's got so much energy and emotion. - stefancole


This is a very, very nice song..
I really love it!
This guys really rock... They are one of the best emo band in the world...
And for me, this song proves it..

This and "Kill" are two of most well-formed pop songs I've ever heard, and they're back to back on the album. Talk about a double-header.

13Just Tonight

Easily their best song along with bleed American, the lyrics of this song are about sex

14My Best Theory

Great song.. Their first song that I heard and fell in love as soon as I heard it.. And its one of their best to.. I think it deserves to be in top 3..

The only option from clarity on this list! That's truly shameful, Jimmy Eat Worlds best album and easily one of the most inspirational albums of all time!


I think Invented is better than 23. But that's my opinion at least


Unfortunately, this song never got the attention or recognition it deserved. Dark, deeply melodic, haunting and epic, this song should easily be in the top ten.

How is this not in the top 5, the music is great the chorus is great and of course the lyrics is the best part

19If You Don't, Don't

Always makes me happy


This song should definitely be at least under the top 10! It's such a amazing song. "I feel that when I'm old, I'll look at you and know: The world was beautiful." Please listen to this song, you won't regret it, I swear!

Amazing song but even more amazing in how the hell it isn't in the countdown
