Best Parkway Drive Songs

The Top TenXW

1Romance Is Dead - Killing With a Smile

The breakdown in this song is so awesome and heavy I threw my neck out when I was driving the other day. #spin

The brutal breakdowns that fluctuate from beginning to end, contrasting amazingly with the ambient strings in the final moments. This is what makes this song so powerful. So diverse. Love it!

That bit at the end gives me chill, it's so awesome and the instruments blend so well.

Throughout the whole song the quality of blending and harmonizing of the instruments is done almost perfectly.

I can't stop hearing the song

2Carrion - Horizons

No contest; nothing compares to this song well constructed, excellent vocals, and I never get tired of it. "carrion! In a moment I'm lost! Drowning from the inside! Her eyes take me away. Tare me apart from the inside out! " just look at the lyrics and fall in love. This song mad me notice them. Now I can't go back! Keep up the good work!

While I get why this song is now atop the leader board and love the song, it's really hard for me to pick a number one song from these guys. I mean you got Idols and Anchors, Sleepwalker, Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em (which is down at 18 for some reason), and more. I really do enjoy it and listen to it a lot (as I do with all Parkway Drive songs), but I just can't pick a number one. A top 5 for sure, but not a number one. Too many smexy songs by these guys to single out just one.

Awesome song, just love the way he screams CARRION at the intro - hellboy15

The best part of parkway drive is their solo...

3Sleepwalker - Deep Blue

This has the best riff of any Parkway song. I can just listen to this all day and not get over how awesome it is

Best parkway song ever! Song slays romance is dead and carrion. Sleepwalker is parkway at their absolute best. This song is all Jeff ling. The best riff he's ever come up with for sure

Easily the greatest Parkway song. The opening riff! The opening riff!

Best Song. Always in the pit.

4Karma - Deep Blue

Amazing song. Kicks off with an awesome drum solo and just has addictive riffs throughout the whole song. Absolutely cannot get enough.

First Parkway Drive Song for me, the song's just one big breakdown and it's awesome for that

5Boneyards - Horizons

This song is nuts! Really catchy guitar riff at 0.51 and really good screams from Winston throughout the whole song. Definitely gives songs like Carrion and Idols and Anchors so much support off their best album!

Probably my all time favorite breakdown

While I believe this to be their best song, this list is very accurate in terms of songs. These ten are most definitely the best ten Parkway Drive songs in my opinion.

Should be in at least top 5

6Horizons - Horizons

This is perhaps one of the best tracks in the entire metalcore genre! The lyrics, the music, the passion...

A good change of pace. A little slower, but still has an awesome breakdown

The ending solo takes me to a different world every time. Surely their best song!

Excellent track with a more deeper message than most

7Dark Days - Atlas

Awesome song, the last 1:30 has the slickest solo to a huge breakdown I've ever heard

Passionate, meaningful, excellent vocal work from winston McCall, nice riffing, insane breakdown! Carrion close second though.

I have been listening to these guys for years now and their latest album blew me away. This and Slow Surrender are incredible.

Best song I've ever heard

8Wild Eyes - Atlas

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Fantastic highs and lows! Don't even get me started on the instrumentals! Not only that, but the lyrics are downright phenomenal. Just look it up if you can and fall in love with this!

Feel like I should be running into stadium about to play football with this song

This guitar riff is amazing, why isn't wild eyes number? -

. This song is amazing!

9Idols and Anchors - Horizons

One of the best Intros I've ever heard. Love every riff. Drums are amazing. Vocals are equally incredible. I can't believe this isn't in the top ten let alone the top 3. Just listen to this song and I promise you too can understand the true meaning to live.

I love this song! Definitely the best! If I could play the guitar like this... And I'm a girl (would be hot, hm? ;) ) This guitar part at the end... It's just orgiastic and pure perfection! Period.

This song is the definition of a metalcore song. Fast tempo, catchy riffs, tapping interlude and a nice solo to finish off.

Let me tell you: BEST SONG BY PARKWAY DRIVE! My favorite with the best guitar part!

10Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em - Killing With a Smile

This should be in the top 3. The Hardcore intro and all those killer riffs-those breakdowns. This is an epic.

11The River - Atlas

One of my personal favorites, should be in the top 5 at least. Everything is good about this song, the vocals, the screaming, the guitar, the breakdown. One of the best songs on atlas.

This was one of the first Parkway songs I heard when I was getting back into metal, this song is the reason I got back into listening to metal again, should be in top 10 at least

Best song on atlas. So much power and emotion behind this song. And it's heavy and the riffs are badass.

The song is so emotional and motivating one of my personal favorites

12Frostbite - Horizons

Maybe a bit different from the usual Parkway song structure, but such an amazing guitar riff and intense vocals! The song is a masterpiece in structure, melody and intensity. A shame they never play it live... - OpenedFist
