The top ten songs from one of the most influential alternative bands.

The Top TenXW

1Where Is My Mind?

First rule is that I'm not suppose to talk about it, second rule is that i;m not suppose to talk about it but this is simply awesome

Okay, this is a great song, and it has a great beat, but was anyone else freaked out by that ending? Sounded like a crying ghost demon thing laugh out loud.

This song is just amazing you can hear from it what an influence it has had on other songs!

It's a good Pixies song but is definitely not one of my favorites.

This is not only the best Pixies songs but arguably the greatest song of all-time... It never gets old. And I have been listening to doolittle since it was released. Arguably, doolittle is the greatest cd of all time.

What if we put every song in the world together? , now just leave every good part, now let all that awesomeness explode in 3 and a half minutes, now imagine something infinitely better, that is "Hey"

God, gives me shiver each time. And I just feel lik vanishing and imploding and bursting to million bubbles, but see, I'm chained.

Just beats Tame but where is Hang Wire?

Outrageously ecstatic, bizarre, manic fun. Only song I can think of that I really didn't like upon first listen (debaser screamed endlessly) until it settled on me and I got it. Now my favorite and a classic like no other.

Best song from the best album ever. Insane and surreal.

5Monkey Gone to Heaven

"If man is 5, if man is 5, if man is 5... Then the devil is 6, then the devil is 6, then the devil is 6, then the devil is... And if the devil is 6 then GOD IS 7! THEN GOD IS 7! THEN GOD IS 7! "

Simply awesome, I can't stop singing 'This monkey's gone to heaven'..

"And the ground's not cold, and if the ground's not cold everything is gonna burn! "

Simply the best song and best lyrics.

One of the best Pixies songs, pure balls to the wall insanity with great music. By the third time the chorus comes around you should be orgasming bricks. This should be 1 or 2, come on people!

In my opinion this is the best Pixies song! It has a mysterious feel to it, I feel like I'm tripping on Acid when I listen to this song, awesome!

When Francis starts to shout it sends an adrenaline rush through your veins

This song should be up there with Hey.

Honestly I don't think this is the best Pixies song... but this is no doubt top 10 material. Maybe top 5. I love this song.

Not the best Pixies song, but I HAD to vote for it because it deserves so much more than number 19!

This song mess with my head in a way I can't tell, only feel it


This song has a great story behind it. The bass on it is also awesome as well as the singing

I have been a Pixies nut for 25 years. Production on this song is faultless.

This is definitely not one of my favrout Pixies song but It deserves to be higher...

How is this not even on the list? This should be an instant top 10, then again not many people have listened to it since it's on Trompe Le Monde, great but overlooked album.

The Contenders


This song defines the whole genre of grunge. If anybody asked you for an example of grunge you could not choose a better song than tame. Black's screech is otherworldly.

I saw the Pixies in concert at the legendary Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA in 1991. It was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. And this song rocks. - Blue_Devereaux

12Dig for Fire

Underrated. Great great song

Dig For Fire has the best groove second only to "Hey"

13I've Been Tired

Inaccessible as its on the not widely available Follow The Pilgrim. Standout track from there but rest of this EP comes no where their LP output

Underrated! After "Here Comes Your Man," this is my favorite - the angelic melody, dissonant guitar opening, and wonderfully catchy chorus make this one of the band's greatest accomplishments.

Very good song. Agree with other comment that it is underrated. Best when played loud

17Alec Eiffel

I love the hypnotizing synth riff at the end - adding to the already decent melody of the actual song. The best off Trompe le Monde.

The end of the song is awesome making contrast with the begginning.

18Something Against You

My top 3. The only way to play this song is with blood seeping from your ears. So many safe options in the top ten.

Like waves crashing against rocks only better.

This song should be a lot lower then it is.


Sick in my opinion
