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]So much emotion. So much truth. Just incredible.

4The 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'

5Sic 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]Not sure if I've heard a bad Brand New song. But this is undoubtedly their best.

6At the Bottom

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.

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.

9Okay 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.

The Contenders

Just.. Everything about this song is incredible..The lyrics, the back story.. The horror and emotion in this song compares to no other..
By far their best song, everything about it deserves to be #1.

12Seventy 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

13The Archer's Bows Have Broken
Great song. One of my all time favorites.
Should definitely be higher!

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.

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! "

17Jaws Theme Swimming

18Soco Amaretto Lime
A song that anyone who ever had a good time with their buddies in high school. This song is probably what I always fall back to as my favourite brand new song. It is perfect and I wish this album and especially this song was more appreciated in the eyes of the Brand New fan base and I'm still trying to figure out why it isn't.
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.
"NEED YOU LIKE WATER IN MY LUNGS" guys this song lyrics are so icredible, this should be at least under the top tens

20Mix Tape

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?.

22Moshi Moshi
The quintessential Brand New song, if you're just tuning in, this is a great place to start.

23Not the Sun

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.
[Newest]Deserves much more credit than it gets

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

Greatest intro to an album ever, especially followed by sic transit gloria

27You Stole

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.

29Untitled 2
"So let's hear three cheers for my morose and grieving pals."

30I Will Play My Game Beneath the Spin Light
I love this song. Surprised it wasn't here already, it's just wonderful
Best song in my opinion

31Jude Law and a Semester Abroad
Their first hit and maybe the only reason we know them so well today, during their pop/punk era, this song was just a perfect mash of screaming harmonies and posi-jump choruses

32Welcome to Bangkok

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

Most underrated song Brand New has. The lyrics are so juvenile, but the dramatic rhythm of the song creates irony that you can truly appreciate.

35Failure by Design

36Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention

37Last Chance to Lose Your Keys
