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]I love this song so glad it is number 1

2Diamond Eyes
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!
My favorite song from Shinedown. Great rhythm, lyrics, and meaning. It will really get your blood pumping!
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

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]Love the sound of this song. It makes me feel empowered at times. I absolutely love listening to this song, especially when I'm frustrated at someone. It is simply amazing!

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.

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

6What 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.
I've always though this was one of Shinedown's more emotional songs and it will always be my favorite of theirs.
Pathetic list I must say. This is what the top three should look like:

1. 45
2. What A Shame
3. Second Chance

Get it right people, this song is extremely underrated. Listen and vote here.
[Newest]What a Shame is an amazing song, I absolutely love it

7Call 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]Its hard to choose whats best, second chance or call me? In my opinion, they are both really good songs.. It should be 2 or 1, I don't know which one would be good... Hard choice😕

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

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

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

The Contenders

11The 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!

12If 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!

13For 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!
Lots of great songs by Shinedown, but this one worked the replay button more than all of the rest.


[Newest]This is my favorite shinedown song!

14I 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!

15Save 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.

16Simple Man
It's is honestly, to me, one of the best covers of an already well established track in rock I've ever heard. Very easy going, but also sports one of Brent Smith's absolute best vocal performances.

A must listen to for anybody who enjoys great music.
BEST SONG EVER! Its very addicting one of shinedowns best songs the lyrics are amazing so definitely vote this it should be
The most beautiful song<3
[Newest]For me it's their best song even if it's a cover

17Her 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

18I'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!

I can't for the life of me understand why this isn't in the top 3. Brent proves once more how awesome his voice is, accompanied with a really catchy chorus. you can't not love this song. the first I heard it, I was blown away! PLEASEEE, LISTEN TO THISSS AMAZINGGG SONGG ANDDD VOTEEE FOR ITT!

20Fly From the Inside
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
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.
Best song should be number 1
[Newest]Great song to begin their first album. This is the Shinedown that I like

21Breaking Inside
What the hell! This song is so damn awesome! You guys should listen to this epic song this song totally describes my life. Just listen to this song this song has the most unique lyrics I just so love the lyrics! Listen to this once and you'll love it! :D I'm breaking inside cause this song isn't on top 10 I'm really breaking inside
Underrated song. My favorite, but when it comes to shinedown take a swing at any song, you can't miss.
This song deserves to be in the top 5. You will love this song, especially if you had a rough past. The lyrics will make you shed a tear. Top 5
[Newest]This song is awesome. It should at least be at the top 5.

AMAZING SONG, amazing lyrics, great tunes and as usual an amazing voice. this should really appear in the top 10.

25Shed Some Light

26I Own You

27Cyanide Sweet Tooth Suicide
I cannot believe this song is not in the top ten. How is this possible
This song should be at least ten... What are you guys doing

I love this song. Shinedown is amazing but this is one of there best songs. I showed it to my boyfriend, and now it is our song. It is amazing, and explains our whole relationship. The song has to do with miracles, and he said I am his miracle. <3 so every time I hear this song I smile for a couple of reasons, Shinedown is my favorite band, and I love him to death.
Come on it was the eighth it's an amazing

OST: Watchmen
This is the first song that I heard of Shinedown. Amazing!

"You can put a man on trial, but you can't make the guilty pay
And you can cage an animal, but you can't take away the rage. "
Best song off their second album.

35My Name (Wearing Me Out)
How is this amazing song not even in the list? Just listen to it once! The power in the song is just so... TOO MUCH FOR ME TO COMPREHEND.
Should definitely be in the top 3 or 5, with Bully. How can this song be so low in the ranking?

36The Energy
What is this song doing in no. 29? This deserves the top spot...haven't people heard this song even a single time?

37Beyond the Sun
Dude what the crap?! This is like, almost as good as Stairway To Heaven, its at least a top 10er, if not in the best 3! I view it as one of their very best, and it isn't even wrote by them!
One of the most amazing songs I have ever heard.

38In Memory
I love the chorus in the song so much, and Brent is awesome in this song
