The Top Ten

You Won't Know
I love the simple yet hauntingly melodic intro and the sudden switch from mellow to heavy that Brand New do so well! Just a class song that is one of my favourites!
So good, displays everything that I've ever loved about Brand New into one song.
This song is perfect. It captures both sadness and anger with lyrics that are so poignant. Makes me cry. Beautiful.

2The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot
My personal favourite of Brand New's, from the lyrics to the soft guitar. And, baby if you're depressed listen to this, feel bad for whoever this is about.
"You are the smell before rain, you are the blood in my veins". My favorite song.
Purely Beautiful. Gives me shivers every time I listen to it. 10/10

3Jesus Christ
"And I will die all alone. And when I arrive I won't know anyone."

"Well Jesus Christ I'm not scared to die, I'm a little bit scared of what comes after."
This song is my current obsession. The emotions are so raw.
Awesome song. The way he sings it is so pure.

6The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows
I like this song but I'm thoroughly disappointed that the song Guernica isn't on here. Too bad. I'

Oh man, the beginning pulls you in with those drums. But the emotion and intensity in it is overwhelming. Plus, it has Jesse's genius lyrics. Overall, should be way higher
A fantastic song - Brand New really escalated their sound to another level with this one. Worth a listen for all fans of music.

If these lyrics don't give you chills, then you should stop listening to music.

This song has so much depth to it. It seems like I hear something new every time I listen to it. It also shows how well the band makes all the parts fit together.
Best chorus ever. The energy is unbelivable. Listening for last 6 months and still not bored.

Daisy is their best album, and this is one of their best songs period. A lot of people don't like their new stuff because they want to remain in the "Soco Amaretto Lime" days, but those days are gone. This is their best work to date.
It's difficult to even vote on this list. Brand new hasn't released a song that I don't love.
Great song if you're not afraid of a little hard core... Also every song from every album is good except some from daisy the alb.

The Contenders

11Seventy Times 7
Your favorite wheapon was the greatest album they ever had and the greatest album of all time. Lyrics, harmonies, and just plain good music.
Very good song off their best album in my opinion

12The Archer's Bows Have Broken
Great song. One of my all time favorites.

13Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't
This one is must be much higher.
"Oh it hurts to be this good... "
"I am heaven sent, don't you dare forget. " And with those words I instantly fell in love with Brand New.

Yeah that's it awestruck

15Sowing Season (Yeah)
Just the chorus, the "yeeeeeeeeah" may be the best chorus ever written.
Very addictive song. Good buildup and very unique chorus. And good finishing too. This will surely be one of the better alternative tracks you will come accross.
"I'm not your Friend! I'm not your lover! I'm not your family! YEAH! "
Listen to sample

16Soco Amaretto Lime
Back to the slow, but meaningful songs we go. The lyrics in this ballad blow me away, cause is it good driving music.
This song has many amazing memories for me and my friends. Every time I hear this, memories rush back to me of the greatest summer of my life.

19Play Crack the Sky
Play crack the sky seems to be a tale of my previous relationship. I relate to nearly every word, and it sends me through a whirlwind of different emotions as each line forces me to recall memories that relate to it. It's one of my favorite songs, and one I will always relate to my first love.
Such a gorgeous song. Best line:
What they call love is a risk, cause you'll always get hit out of nowhere by some wave and end up on your own.
I know that this is what you want
A funeral keeps both of us appart
You know that you are not alone...
Need you like water in my lungs

Come on people

A song with little to no music, but rather Jesse Lacey singing to a natural melody, still one of my favourites.

21Moshi Moshi
The quintessential Brand New song, if you're just tuning in, this is a great place to start.

22Not the Sun Listen to sample

Brand New is my favorite band so it is really hard to choose a favorite song. Luca has to be my favorite because it has about 250 plays on my iTunes. Something very brilliant about this song.
The riff at the end though THAT RIFF AT THE END though
Good God this is my favourite song by Brand New.

Just.. Everything about this song is incredible..The lyrics, the back story.. The horror and emotion in this song compares to no other..

25Me vs Maradona vs Elvis
Absolutely beautiful. I teared up a little when I heard it for the first time.
Listen to sample

I can’t believe how much this band is underrated. Brand New has never released any thing bad. All their four albums are fantastic and different from each other.
Daisy for me is the best work they have done but every other album is brilliant in it’s own way.
I can’t wait for the fifth album to be out. I really hope it will be released soon because it’s been so long since we heard anything new from them.
