The Top Ten

The 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
[Newest]Incredibly beautiful lyrics and just raw with emotions.

2You 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!
This song is perfect. It captures both sadness and anger with lyrics that are so poignant. Makes me cry. Beautiful.
So good, displays everything that I've ever loved about Brand New into one song.
[Newest]First heard this song on Stargate Universe and now I'm hooked on Brand New.

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.
[Newest]Without a doubt the greatest lyrics that have ever been written

4At the Bottom
"I stole bricks from the dam almost every day
Now I'm drowning in the flood I made
Explain myself to me on the other side
I'm gonna want some answers when I die"

A hauntingly beautiful metaphor in those first two quoted lines. This song is one of the best on Daisy.

5The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows
Very underrated song, good band, deserves more attention


I like this song but I'm thoroughly disappointed that the song Guernica isn't on here. Too bad. I'

Just.. Everything about this song is incredible..The lyrics, the back story.. The horror and emotion in this song compares to no other..
"I saw our sad Messiah.
He was bored and tired of my laments.
Said, "I died for you one time, but never again""
When I heard this, I was instantly hooked.
The raw emotion, the hauntingly beautiful instrumental, the horror. This song is a masterpiece
By far their best song, everything about it deserves to be #1.

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.
Such a powerful song, amazing poetic lyrics. It's been my favourite for over a year and I still enjoy listening to it as much as I did the first time.
Best chorus ever. The energy is unbelivable. Listening for last 6 months and still not bored.

8Sic Transit Gloria
This song needs to be further up, I mean come on - DIE YOUNG AND SAVE YOURSELF
This song is a masterpiece.. And I think we can all relate to it. DIE YOUNG & SAVE YOURSELF!
How is this masterpiece not on the list! Come on people
[Newest]Amazing lyrics. And the bass line is sex.

9The Archer's Bows Have Broken
Great song. One of my all time favorites.
Should definitely be higher!

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
I love brand new thanks

The Contenders

11Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't
"I am heaven sent, don't you dare forget. " And with those words I instantly fell in love with Brand New.
This is my favorite, the lyrics are genius and it should honestly be higher
This one is must be much higher.

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

13Seventy 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

14Not the Sun

Yeah that's it awestruck

16Sowing 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! "

Why is this not in the top ten? One of the saddest songs in the history of sad songs. And the best of brand new in my opinion

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.

A song with little to no music, but rather Jesse Lacey singing to a natural melody, still one of my favourites.
First song I ever heard by them a couple years ago, been hooked ever since
How can you not love the background violin?.

20Play 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.
"NEED YOU LIKE WATER IN MY LUNGS" guys this song lyrics are so icredible, this should be at least under the top tens
