The Top Ten

Second Chance
I loved this song because I beileve in second chances and I want a second chance in my life and I want it so bad I can taste it. So in all of my heart, this song is the best song of shinedown's career so far and I loved it so freaking much it make me cry. So thank you Shinedown for make me believing in second chances and god bless your souls Shinedown. God bless your souls.
Epic song from Shinedown. Very inspiring song and it is so beautiful which describe me completely! I hope Shinedown makes more wonderful songs which will inspire us all.
this song perfectly describes me
[Newest]Funny thing is Brent hated this song when he wrote it and it barely made the cut to be on the album. Imagine if instead of Shinedown's most popular song, this was a bonus track at most.

2Diamond Eyes
My favorite song from Shinedown. Great rhythm, lyrics, and meaning. It will really get your blood pumping!
THIS, is there fastest most intense song. really good. its the perfect song to work out to. I give it a 9 out of 10!
I have always been a fan of 80's anthem arena rock songs. This reminds me so much of that! Powerful catchy hook with 'Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom', a build up before the chorus, and a chorus that you just wanna punch your fist into the air and sing it with them. Plus that guitar solo was BADASS
[Newest]This is a must have song

3Sound of Madness
Amazing song! Nothing else to be said.
I just love dis... Because I just love it... Lovers can love and even haters can love it... That's my sound of madness
I saw this song live at xfest 2008. That was the first time I heard shinedown and it was amazing! Definitely deserves first or at least second. The lyrics are inspirational to me every time I hear the song. Basically this song fking rocks!
[Newest]This song is number 1 of shinedown

One of the most gut wrenching song I've ever heard... Don't take my word for it... Listen to it yourself...
Still my favorite from the first time I heard it, can't beat the way this hits!

First song by Shinedown I heard a few years ago, and still is my favorite. Also kinda decribes me a bit.
[Newest]Probably the best song ever

5What a Shame
Not a popular song but I think it is Shinedown's best. Very emotional, true, great guitars, the best of the high and low from Brent. This should be #1 and all others tie for #2. Second Chance is a great song, but the only reason it's #1 on this list is because people who have only heard that song are voting on a topic meant for hardcore Shinedown fans. Sorry, but it's true.
Of all the great Shinedown songs why was this not a single?
I've always though this was one of Shinedown's more emotional songs and it will always be my favorite of theirs.
[Newest]So happy to see this amazing song in the top 10. It more than deserves it.

6Call Me
The best song, cannot beat it really. If I was to recommend any song of Shinedown, it would definitely be this one.
One of the few songs that touched my heart and made me cry..

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, nevermind
God knows I've tried...


This is an amazing song that has true meaning behind everything! It helps me forget about everything and leave the world behind me... I hope they stay together for more years to come...
[Newest]Possibly my favorite song of all time. Very introspective, very real.

This song is ultimate! Awesome music great singing and a rocking guitar solo, everything a rock song needs. Needs to be in the top 10
Really helps me when I'm feeling down; very uplifting song. So amazing to see this song live, when the line "put your hands in the air if you hear me out there" comes up everybody in the entire venue puts their hands in the air. It is so amazing and I got goosebumps both times I saw them.
This song is amazing! It doesn't just have meaning and awesome musical content, it also is the song that made ne a shinedown fan! If you for some stupid reason haven't heard of it, listen to the sample!
[Newest]One of the best songs out there today, brings it all back and never gets old. An amazing song

8The Crow & the Butterfly
Such a beautiful and moving song, makes me emotional every time I hear it. This isn't, in my opinion, the best song from Shinedown; I love Second Chance and other less well known songs of theirs like Beyond The Sun. But something about this song, a mix of the lyrics, beautiful lead vocals, and raw emotion put into this song make it my favorite. Should be much higher than #11!
Such an amazing song, great lyrics. Should be Number 2 with Boom lay as first, but its still a nice song.
This song is actually number 4 for me.. Has a neat little message to it. Nice melody along with that always awesome Shindown hard rock twist... Love it.


[Newest]Beautiful song! It's breathtaking:)) please give it a listen this deserves top ten AT LEAST!

This song helps me, and a lot of others as well, to confront their past. This is music at it's best. The lyrics are brilliant, the video is amazing and the guitar riffs are solid. If you don't feel anything after listening to this song, you don't have a heart.
This is the type of song that someone should listen to if they have bullies whether at school in their neighborhood and this can get their confidence up to fight them to get the bully or bullies of their back but if not listen to a song like enemies or sound of madness
Excellent song in my opinion. A bit different compared to their other songs though. But to be honest I like this better than the top 3. Vote it up guys!
[Newest]Listening to this song brings up bad memories of 6th grade, but it helps with the few problems I have today.

10I Dare You
This Songs is one of their Masterpieces But it gets thrown under the Rug for Some unknown Reason!

The Chorus is this song is amazing With Headphones on Try it I DARE YOU!

Brent Smith's Voice is Amazing and this song Proves that.!


How is this not in the top ten? This song is beautiful!
Absolute masterpiece, how it's #10 baffles me

The Contenders

This has got to be one of the most blood pumping songs by them. I'm in love with it. And its rather sad indeed that its barely number ten
The fastest and most intense song by them. The guitar, drums and bass are all awesome
Amazingly amazing... This song really sets the blood pumping!
If you like this, I recommend you listen to "Cyanide Sweet tooth Suicide" and "Sound of Madness"
[Newest]Oh my gosh. I wish I could remember the lyrics because I can't help but sing every word even though I don't know a single one :P


13Her Name is Alice
So mysterious and empowering. Not a typical shinedown song, my favorite of All time!
Her name is Alice!

Great Rock songs ever!
Should be way higher! Great song

This song for me has a great tune, also the Music video was just exemplary, such imagination and originality that the Shinedown band have put into this song, it should be No. 1 by far!
Awesome song off the newest album. It's pure rock and is very addictive. In my opinion, it's shinedown's best
This song is Shinedown at their BEST! This song is EXTREMELY exhilarating!
[Newest]This song deserve to be in top 3

15If You Only Knew
I love this song x10 for the past 3 years this has been my favorite song. It has been epic in every way and I believe it should conquer this list.
If you only knew.. I'd sacrifice my beating heart before I lose you... Very great and emotional lyric!
Their first love song and has the most meaning and isn't even "that" soft deserves to be at least top 5
[Newest]Love the words and the music!

16I'll Follow You
Shinedown's best song. A gut punch right to the feelings. Great melody & lyrics, and the breakdown in the bridge of the song gives me chills every time.
I really like song, because it talks about how we as human beings need each other to hold on, and have someone to count on.
One of the best songs that I've ever heard! Should be in the top ten!

17Through the Ghost
AMAZING SONG, amazing lyrics, great tunes and as usual an amazing voice. this should really appear in the top 10.
This is a relatively new song. But seriously it deserves a top 3 status.Just listen to this song once and decide for yourself.
It deserves top three status. Just awesome song. It's relatively new song but soon it will get it's status.

18For My Sake
Dude This song rocks. The chorus just flows perfectly with the guitar, it is just amazing no doubt about it. This quality of song isn't very much like their others. It feels like the other songs are just fillers for hits like this.
As much as I love all of Shinedown's other songs, this tops all of them by a landslide. This song is perfect... We can all relate to it in some point in our lives. This song deserves number 1!
Stop slowing me down, stop holding me up, quit making a scene, enough's enough. Let's be honest, your promise, was never meant to last!
So I'm talking you on, I'm calling you out, there's nothing left for us here now. Let's be honest, I promise, I'm never looking back for my sake!
Amazing lyrics.
[Newest]This is my favorite shinedown song!

19Fly From the Inside
First song of their first album. I was transfixed the moment I heard it. The killer opening, Brent's screams, the main riff (which is really fun to play on guitar), the moody verses, the soaring choruses, the heart-stopping bridge, the abrupt ending; simply sensational.
This should be the best song. It has the best mix of vocals, guitars and drums. And really, second chance is at the top, that song is overrated and overplayed. Everyone who voted for the top 10 are casual fans of music
Best song should be number 1
[Newest]This song is so powerful : why is it so low?

20Save Me
This song is just awesome, I can't believe no one commented on it yet. Its so expressive and I can really relate to the lyrics. Not only that, but its one of those songs that will always get stuck in your head.
How is this not top ten? Good lyrics and overall great meaning. Read the lyrics and then listen to it.
I can't believe that this song isn't higher. It is amazing beyond words! Lyrics, sound, everything. It's great.
