The Top Ten

Breathe Into Me
It's just great... Listen to it and you'll understand why
The way he sings and screams the lyrics, is just breath-taking! And the lyrics are absolutely perfect! One of the best songs I have heard in my life.
Great vocals, lyrics, and instrumentals make this one awesome song.


The starting hypnotizes, then you are mesmerized, by the middle you are singing, and then comes the end, when you rewind again!
[Newest]Didn't like it that much

2Already Over
Abseloutley their best song!
It should be number 1!
A great song by them
It really makes you go crazy. Great lyrics and the singer is really great and really is going to make be addicted to this song...
this song is addicting, you just want to hear it over and over again
[Newest]Why id Breath into me first while Already Over is like 10 times better?

3Let Go
It's amazing how the song starts with that wicked hard rock beginning and ends with one of the most beautiful endings I've ever heard.
When I look at the underlying message to his song I realize that it should be 1 or 2. Never be the same is 1 because it is better vocals and when I think about it it is such an amazing song jut like this one is
A great, melodic, addictive song! The chorus yet gives me goosebumps. I think this is their best song and it deserves to be number one.
[Newest]Can't get enough of this particular RED song, it's got the introductory build-up and the chorus is brilliant. The screams, especially the end ones coupled with the string arrangement make it their best song ever.

4Feed The Machine
DEFINITELY my favorite by them. Harder than their usual stuff. Completely BAMF beyond belief
This song is so hardcore. DEFINITELY my favorite. I can't get enough of the growls, screams, and incredible guitar riffs!
totally epic... A totally different song by them


[Newest]Great song! Easily gets stuck in your head.

when I first heard this amazing song it was like 2 AM, and I loved it, so great that I just had to hear it again and again. And later that night when I actually woke up at like 5:30 AM I just couldn't prevent mu self from listening to faceless one more time. I know there are songs a way better and deeper than this one, but at list I will remember it for turning me into a MUSIC ADDICT.
What? This is best.. Between all singles of em'.. This song deserve to be in top 10.. First listen then vote on this page.. This best one..
All Songs Are Good But this One Kinda has everything in it... Its hard to pick but this is more of a combo.
[Newest]Really great song! There isn't a song in this album I don't like! Definitely the best album in my library.

By far their best song. Very melodic, not heavy but still excellent. Starts off with piano chords good use of background cello and some faint guitar chords. A perfect song.
One word - beautiful. I don't think anything can top this. There is so much emotion in this song.
It's the most amazing red song! it should be number 1
the vocals are just amazing and it has that deep sensitive voice.. the combination of the guitar, drum, and the piano is the perfect combination for a great song
[Newest]My favourite Red song. It is very beautiful and deeply touching.

7Death of Me
I love this song so much. I love the meaning of this song. This song means that god and the devil are fighting over you but god wins!
it's just an awesome song love it! great work and great band it deserves the 1st place honnestly

Awesome song goes right through glory to the lord in heaven
[Newest]I would put this song at number ten. Innocence and Instinct was an amazing album, but I think it's better to listen to as a whole. It's more of an experience than a big group of songs.

8Lie To Me (Denial)
This song is just magnificent should be 3 or 4 definitely one of their brilliant songs more recent.. So its 12 for god's sake seriously?!? This is a great song vote for it!
I'm sure this has to be one of the best songs~! I fell in love with this band through listening to this!
It's just so amazing, the way he sings and the music, it's just.. I can't even explain it right.
[Newest]This has been my favorite song out of any artist, album, or song ever! I love how it starts out with an amazing intro, lyrics are amazing, just everything is PERFECT

9Let It Burn
It's an amazing song, the only reason it is so low on the list is that it isn't as popular, seriously, listen to this song before you go back and vvote for breathe into me and already over
Great... How can there be so many deaf people in this world sometimes?
Have you people heard this song? Its amazing!
This is the best song ever so if you have any problems with life or something listen to it. After I heard this I decided to step up my game with life and come out of my shell and make friends and stuff so this could do it to you to
[Newest]I like this song, but it just doesn't quite cut it for me. I wouldn't put in the top ten, let alone at number 6.

10Not Alone
"I Will be your hope, When you feel like It's over, And I will pick you up when your whole world shatters, And when you're finally in my arms you'll look up and see, Love has a face! " Definitely The Best song lyrics ever, and The Best Song By RED!
I really love this song. It has a very sweet message and I love the music its softer than red's usual but its beautiful. After listening to this song you feel like there are others out there like you, there are people who are with you, you're not alone.
Just listen to the lyrics, it brought tears to my eyes once I concentrated on what he was saying. Simply beautiful.
[Newest]How is this not number one? Crazy people!

The Contenders

11Fight Inside
I love this song! It is really awesome I think... I don't know why it is so far down on the list!

It really shocked me
I would have picked let it burn from until we have faces but it isn't here! Fight inside is my second favorite. then death of me and either lost or never be the same.
Awesome song! First red song I heard fell in love with the band... very very nice song... still like it th most
[Newest]I find it to be their most meaningful song, and they have a lot of meaningful songs.

12Mystery of You
Wow was looking for this song for the longest time, I had to use this list to find it, and now I'm so damn glad I did.
I get chills every time I listen to this song.
Damn its so good should be in top 3 at least! So damn good lyrics
[Newest]My favorite song of all time. By far

13Buried Beneath
Why this song is at #17? It should be around the top 3 fighting for the best.just listen to it and judge yourself.very deep meaning this song has the ability to touch your heart
Their most Underrated song. It really is amazing. Just listen to it.
Give this song a listen. Think "Break Me Down," but with the more refined style attuned to the rest of the Until We Have Faces album.
This is everything Red. The Linkin Park, Chevelle, and Christian rock influence just explodes in this song.

I agree this is for sure the best song I've heard by Red so far. I am a new Christian currently looking for songs listing the best songs by Christian bands based on this song. Then I find it at number 12 on here. Just listened to the first 5 of these songs on YouTube and I have to say the lyrical content is great, but musically this one is way better. Maybe its because the breakdowns don't impress me as I like August Burns Red type music when it comes to breakdowns.
The is the one of the best. It's got great lyrics and everything required to be a great song. This has to be a bit higher in this list...
People listen to it and connect it to your lives. I bet you will vote for it. Epic emotional scream, epic lyrics. No one can scream and sing emotionally like Michael Barnes. Love you RED!
[Newest]How on earth this song not on the top 5?

This song is so underrated! Talks about the internal battle that everyone goes through. Finding that inner peace. Usually that comes through another person, some say their significant other, others with say God. Either way this song is truly amazing!
I'm listening to it right now and by God this song truly is one of my favorites. I certainly have no idea what it's doing a;; the way down here, but if you have yet to listen to it then listen immediately. I just can't get enough of this song! Talking about your shadows...
One of the best songs by this great band, if you want a song like this, check give me a sign by breaking benjamin

This should be number one cause in this song it describes exactly what can can and will do to someone And it should most definitely be number one this and not alone one of those two because not alone has saved people's lives just watch the not alone fan letter video
I heard this song on a video my sister was watching, It had hardly any views with no one knowing the song, A few months later I was listening to some music when I noticed Red-Forever in related. I clicked it and heard the song. This song was the first song I heard from Red and in my opinion one of the best.
This deserves to be number one come on people open your eyes

17Hymn For The Missing
This song has helped me deal with a bunch of my emotional pain and depression. It is simply beautiful and the words are so amazing. This song is simply gorgeous in every single form from the lyrics to the music to the singing. I love every song by Red. But this one has to be one of my favorites hands down. It at least deserves to be in the top ten in my opinion.
This song brings me to tears... It deserves to be in the top ten! This song is sure to make you depressed, and when you hear the girl crying in it, it just breaks your heart, one of the most relatable songs red has made!
By far my favorite Red song... Very relatable and emotionally charging It shows a different side of Red and they nailed it between this and Pieces. This song is open to the listeners own interpretation whether it be about god or the loss of someone close, its still an amazing song.

18Start Again
This song is just incredible, it takes the best parts of Already Over and adds amazing lyrics and an even better beat. By far the best song of Innocence and Instinct.
I don't really like this type of rock but this song is just amazing. The vocals just take you into another planet
Come on people vote for this song.
It Rocks Just as much as much as Fight Inside and Death of me.
[Newest]Love this song. Amazing.

19If We Only
This one is like Already over, Never Be The Same, Breathe Into Me, Lie To Me, Forever, and Out From Under mixed to gether to make one of the most Epic Red songs ever.
I don't understand how this isn't number 1! Best RED song and one of the best rock songs I've ever heard.
You can really fel the song. It has it all. Power the feel, the rhythm. Best song in their new album "release the panic".


It's a mesmerizing song! Totally stunning and just amazing! I think it should get something better than 14th place!


The musical depth in this song is SPECTACULAR to say the least. So many bands just through songs together and are done with them. This one feels like it was thought out thoroughly. It is definitely not just a filler track between their singles.
It is an absolute beauty by Red. I don't know why it is at such a low position..
[Newest]Why is this so low? This is quite possibly their best song. The production here is insane and Barnes's vocals are beautiful, ranging from anger to beauty. Absolutely amazing.

21Never Be the Same
This song is one of my favorite song, not just by Red, but just in general. This is certainly a different song for them, because its not as intense as some of their other songs, however its not as slow as their slow songs. I feel like this song is the happy medium between the two different styles, and really showcases ALL of their ability. SHOULD BE #1
This is the most amazing song I have ever heard in my life. It reminds me about the girl that I love and how amazing she is. This song should be 1 not 15. This easily is their best non screamo song. I love red, they help me keep my faith. All of their songs, but non of them can top never be the same
This song is not only the best song by Red.. But the way they sing the song... Its simply awesome. This is the first song I heard by RED and I can honestly say it is their BEST SONG BY FAR! EVERYONE SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS! ITS HONESTLY THE BEeeST!.
This should be in the top 10 or at least the top 3
[Newest]AWESOME SONG! The vocalist sings with so much emotion... should definitely be in the top ten!

22Break Me Down
I think this is one of their most under rated songs even though it's clearly one of their bests other than Buried Beneth!
LoL How Should Break Me Down Be Out Of List It Should Be 6th On List Because It A Great Song In Music And Already Over! Should Be 3th in The List :) Ok Have Fun Guys
Heard it at a summer camp, found it online Emotional and gets to Christians weakness
[Newest]One of their best song n needs to b at the top. Pumps in adrenaline to achieve more in life.

23Darkest Part
My personal favorite song of their "of Beauty and Rage" album, and quite possibly my favorite song they've EVER made. The chorus to this song is just so breathtaking.
This song should be number 1. It just came out on there new album. It describes so many people, characters, and the lyrics are filled with emotion.. This is the best RED song ever created.
This is WAY too underrated... Should be at least top 10!

24Who We Are
There is just so much that is done right with this song it's hard to even talk about it. The guitar is simple, but extremely awesome and the vocals on this song (in my opinion) are some of the best by Michael Barnes. And if any of you Red fans have seen this song live, then you have seen one of the best performances by modern rock artists. My top 5 songs by Red.
1. Who We Are (obviously)
2. Death of Me
3. Mystery of You
4. Let It Burn
5. Already Over
No. 32!? This song deserves to be in the top 5. This is one of the most awesome songs I have ever listened to. Amazing vocals, amazing lyrics, amazing guitar, and so catchy. Definitely one of Red's best songs!
Who we are is my favorite Red song ever! It has great guitar, great beat, and great lyrics. I'm surprised that people don't appreciate more because it is a lot better than #26.

25Perfect Life
This song is just so different from what Red have done in the past, it's like a mix of everything they've ever released: the passion on "End Of Silence", the superb riffs on "Innocence and Instinct" and the heartfelt lyrics on "Until We Have Faces". The verses, the chourus, this song is just so dynamic and creative. RED's best song so far, I can't wait for their 2013 release, "Release The Panic". Guys, vote for Perfect Life, it's a damn heavenly song. REDHEAD FOREVER :D
I can't wait for the new album. It comes out feb. 5th, and from what I've heard, it'll be awesome.
Number 1, this music its super... love it.

26Ordinary World
I think this song should be in top 10 because this song has everything perfect in it

27Wasting Time
This song is one of RED's most underrated songs, it's a good adrenaline/pump-up song, it's telling the opposition that you can't beat me. In fact, they're Wasting Time.
It is one of my favourites song. It always motivated my when I was sad

28So Far Away
The lyrics are amazing! This is the the first Red song I have listened to, and it it grabbed my attention. It is a very moving song, and the lyrics have so much meaning (along the great music). It should definitely be higher up on this list.
Amazing song! It's so sad, but that's what makes it good.
Love it. Amazingly mind blowing. The music, lyrics everything

Totally awesome song, it completely abandons Red's original sound and takes a more industrial approach. Most of the time when a band changes their sound like this is does not work but this song turned out great. best Red song in my opinion.
Heavy as hell. My favorite track off Release the Panic, which is undoubtedly their worst album. This is not their best song, but it deserves to be in the top ten in my opinion.

30Release the Panic
Get the album, it's awesome. This is the title track, and definitely worthy of your attention. It has an awesome chorus, and the screams are really cool.
This song is amazing. Hands down one of their best. The only reason it is so far down the list is that it is a new song and this is an old list.
Nobody has heard this song yet but it will be Awesome.
The New album comes out Next Febuary.

31Glass House
The best song off the new album "Release the Panic". It has a mysteriously haunting vibe to it which makes it very pleasing to listen to. And the end of the song is amazing!
Will never get enough of this song! Its one of them where you can listen to it all day and I have hit the replay button a hundred times, must listen!
Fantastic, favorite song off release the panic. I would ran into the top tens

32Hold Me Now
The best song I've ever heard.. When you search and dig deep enough, you'll find a whole lot other meaning to this song. you'll see everything, but then again I'm probably just saying this because it's my favorite song of all time
One of my favorite RED song. Only Fight Inside, Feed the Machine Already Over, are better
Easily the best song on their latest album!. Great lyrics
[Newest]This song has a deep meaning.

33Watch You Crawl
I can't believe this is so far down on the list! It may not be their absolute best, but it definitely belongs in the top 10! The guitar riff is really awesome!

34Best Is Yet to Come
Surprised this isn't higher up on the list! A really happy sort of hopeful vibe for a song, definitely worth a good listen to!
One of great songs I've ever heard


This is one of those songs you would see on a Xbox 360 or PS3 commercial due to the aggression and in your face lyrics by Mike Barnes. I have it on my xbox already, it's that good I downloaded it along with countless other RED songs onto my xbox hard drive.
Its Short, But its one of my favorite songs by red, how on earth do you all not like this song. Its amazing and absolutely the best by RED. LEarn real music.
Pure awesome, No words can describe this song. God bless these people, The song that helped me find red.

36The Outside

37Die for You
Here is my new top ten favorite Red songs,
1st. Never Be The Same. 2nd. Feed The Machine. 3rd. Breathe Into Me.
4th. Death Of Me. 5th. Already Over. 6th. Shadows. 7th. Die For You.
8th. Glass House. 9th. Let It Burn. 10th. Hymn For The Missing.
But Hold Me Now, Lie To Me, Denial and Fight Inside are amazing songs too though.
I don't know why this isn't any higher ranked. It is a little computerized for them but is still a great song.

38Out From Under
The bridge in this song is the best I've ever heard in any song period.

39Overtake You
This is one of the songs that keeps a person going in life. I'm a little pissed right now becuase this song is ranked 23... What People what... This song is definitely in the top 5 or maybe 10 take the time to please listen to the music :D

40Run and Escape
Its really low on the list atm because it's the most recent song. But it is so great, takes RED right back to innocence&instinct where they were at their best. Love it
Finally a song that sounds takes RED back to their roots
Amazing base and lyrics

41Take It All Away
It breaks my heart how underrated this song is. I love the emotion in his voice and how the music is soft throughout most of the song then builds near the end. Beautiful, in a sad sort of way.
Move this up!
(My favorites, in no particular order: Take it All Away, Out From Under, Pieces, Ordinary World, and Let Go. )
A very underrated song. It's my second favorite song ever. The lyrics are beautiful and haunting and the violin and the electric guitar towards the bridge is amazing.
Gotten me through some tough times in my life. A lot of people I know would call this depressing or maybe even a little scary. The depressing part I agree with, but I think it's beautiful.

42Gave It All Away
I don't know how this song doesn't have any votes. Between the choir in the background, the strings, and how perfectly its put together. Its probably my favorite RED song ever. And the first one I ever heard
Wow...Number 41? That is all I have to say...

43Same Disease

44As You Go
As always, the last song on a Red album will leave you in tears, except this one has positivity throughout the end. Definitely worth listening to.
One of the Best songs on Release the panic.
Absolute favorite song! So underrated!

45The Moment We Come Alive
It should at least have been top 15. Infact the first 10 songs should have been tied to first. Such a magnifient band. When I first heard them I stopped following Linkin Park!

46Fight to Forget

47Shadow and Soul
Beautiful masterpiece! This is definitely one of RED's best works! This song tells a remarkable story, its about not knowing where to go. 'Should I go back to who I used to be? Or should I join the dark side? ' The chorus is very captivating, a beautiful sound. When you hear this song, it's impossible not to feel an immense emotion. The reason this is now my favorite RED song so far, is merely because this song is the ultimate struggle, the internal battle, the struggle to find out who you were and who you are. Shadow in this case refers to the evil, and soul is the good. The tragedy (although still beautiful) is that you eventually fall into the shadows once again. But there is a part of you, a small part, that still remembers who you used to be. I give this song 10/10
This song should really be at the top ten in my opinion. Every time I listen to it, I just melt. I think I listened to this song on loop for about 2 hours straight. This song along with the rest of "Of Beauty and Rage" is one of their best albums ever.
I absolutely love this song! The vocals are just so amazingly perfect. Definitely one of the best songs by Red and I just can't help but listen to it over and over again.

48Gravity Lies
This amazing song should easily be I'm the top ten soon.
A song from their new album Of Beauty and Rage.

49Love Will Leave a Mark
This song describes Love, it always leaves a mark, this song is just Awesome it deserves at least to be in the top 20, I am really shocked finding this as number 44, it deserves more than that, I mean come on guys, just hear this song and judge.
Who would be dumb enough to put this song on #44. If they would only listen to this song before the judge it.
This song isn't my favorite song by red but its really amazing and it deserves a much higher rank than 47

Very underrated song and probably the closet song that is the most similar to their first two albums.
Don't think I've ever had so many chills

51Yours Again
The first single of their new album OF Beauty and Rage.
My personal favorite off Of Beauty and Rage.

52Falling Sky

53The Ever

54Part That's Holding On
Absolutely another master piece album by red... Yeah "of beauty and rage"! I am confused to choose the best album among until we have faces, innocence and instinct, end of silence and of beauty and rage! :) and this song is amazing... :) my favorite. Songs from this album-
1. Of these chains
2. Darkest part
3. Yours again
4. Take me over
5. Part that's holding on
6. Gravity lies
7. The ever
8. Fight to forget
9. Imposter..

55Of These Chains
Great song.. Michael has a Magical voice
Red rules has begun...

56What You Keep Alive

57Take Me Over
Wow! This is a great song... Reminds me the past Linkin Park... This song will go high 4 sure!

58Already Over, Pt. 2

59Nothing and Everything
I love this song but I have a question: isn't this song basically the slower version of fight inside? Anyway, this song is amazing, beautiful, haunting, and pulls you into deep thought. It just haunts you it lingers in your mind even after the song is done.
This song is one of their slower ones, but none the less the sound in haunting. I love this song. It's how I found the band! This should at least be within the top ten!
