The Top Ten

Everytime I Die
This is by far their best song... Should be much ahead of angels don't kill
This song sounds much better and has a much more melodic sound to it than most of their songs and that is a good definition of melodic death metal.
By far the best song of children of bodom way better than angels don't kill.. Its amazing the perfection from the combination between the guitar solos and the keyboard. Great job alexey
[Newest]The guitars harmonizing is heavenly metallic. Just makes you wanna shred.

2Angels Don't Kill
Awesome track! The best solo and lyrics of COB! Really love this track a lot!
This song, though slow, is their best.. COB is one of my favorite bands. Thier music is really sweet.. Must-hear band for every metal lover.


Awesome song! Where's Northern Comfort though?! That is definitely in the Top 10 AT LEAST.
[Newest]One of the best songs that I have ever heard in all my life

3Needled 24/7
Awesome song... Loved it more than any other... Couldn't stop listening to the guitar solo and I might have listened to the song more than a thousand times!
And everyday when the knife in my back starts to twinge n turn
My eyes are catching fire my heart starts to burn
Listening to COB is a bit like being in heaven
And nothing defines COB like does NEEDLED 24/7!
Tears me apart from any kind of music and tells me the truth that COB is the band of Gods
[Newest]The first bodom song I heard... Got a little soft spot for it

4Are You Dead Yet
just hear it once, and your life will change


this is the song that got me into children of bodom when I heard it on the radio
to my enemies with love.. when I first listened to it, my opinion about COBHC TOTALLY CHANGED... now I am one big fan of them
[Newest]The first song I heard from them, and still my favorite!

5In Your Face
Really cool song. Completely addictive and it's unbelievably coordinated!
just epic, every headbanger should hear it


The vigor, the spirit, the speed and the bluntness are too good! Perfect for any headbanger! It is a real "bitchslap in your face effect". My personal favorite.
[Newest]This one deserve no 01.. No offense

6Kissing the Shadows
The guitar and keyboard play at the end is inexplicable and unmatchable.
The guitar and keyboard duel solo at the end simply makes the song. Never heard anything like it and this is my most played song in my iTunes library, nothing beats it in my opinion!
Good lyrics, best solo of all times. Its the best song ever by anybody. So good. No words can describe this master piece of masterpieces.
[Newest]The way modern metal should be played. Not that nonsense In Your Face. The duel at the end is the best duel since Hangar 18.

An absolute classic of Melodic Death Metal, the song that got me into COB, which is one of my favourite bands. A truly headbanging song, as all songs of this album, Hatebreeder is their best album, and where they stood at their best, musically speaking. The riff, the solo, etc... The best solo is undeniably Kissing the Shadows, but this song has to get the cake for being the best COB song, simply amazing!
The best Melodic Black Metal song I've ever heard in my whole life. So atmospheric, melodic, haunting and beautiful. Everything is pure genius, courtesy of Alexi, demonic shrieked vocals, total shred duel solo between Alexi and Janne, the guitar lead of Alexander during the choruses, the pitch change at the end, the little bass bridge of Henkka, the eerie keyboard and lyrics... But the best has to be the piano arpeggios, simple beauty mixed with aggressive drumming and singing... Just pure awesomeness.
The song that hooked me onto COB. Definitely one of their best! Before this I only listened to songs with clear vocals!
[Newest]A masterpiece, plain and simple.

8Bed of Razors
Complete Kiss Ass Song.. I headbang to this everyday.. Definitely it deserves to be on top of this list... The guitar in this song is complete orgasm..
The song is amazing in all the way that can be described... It must be rated along with every time I die.. Because the solo and the song are very organized and everything is ultimately perfect at this song.. The song is name is enough to describe how good this song is... The solo and the guitars are very on top.. The lyrics kills... Very great... Words can't describe this song.. The words are dying when I try to describe this song...
Its an every headbanger song... I hear this song everyday. I just can't stop listening to it. I hear it even when I sleep... But I can't believe that its in such a low rank... It deserves to be in the top three...
[Newest]The lead is epic

9Hate Crew Deathroll
This song is at no 17?

Can't believe it!

This song has so much energy, so much melody, pure energy, great combination of keyboards, guitar and drums

The guitar riff bridge is also played what great enthusiasm

My very first song by COB!
You want death metal... Well C.O. B give it to you shoved up your ass six feet under... Some of the best riffs iv heard besting one another and alexi displaying the true sense of a genius! All hail C.O. B!
So much energy on this song one of their best it have to be on the top 5 at least

This and Angels Don't Kill are perfection. The solo gets me every time
Far too low down this list!
Mother of lead guitar!
COB at its very best. All hail Alexi
[Newest]Some songs are born to be played loudly-real loudly!

The Contenders

11Bodom Beach Terror
Man! This song should be on the short list of top 10. Good drum intro, good vocals and insane guitar solo in courtesy of the greatest metal guitarist of all time, alexi laiho himself.. This song is brutal!
Spectacular drum intro and good solo, but the best part is by far the chorus. This is certainly my fave COB song, and is the best COB song for partiez.
Wash your hands in the lake of your blood! Just before you die!

12Silent Night, Bodom Night
Its only 3 min.. But fully of intense melody in both leads n rhythm.. Just take 3 min of your life to listen to this.. And you'll see how many hours you'll spend enjoying the music from Bodom! CoB rocks! Sry, metals!
One of the best solo I have ever heard. Heads off towards alexi. Come on folks vote it.. It deserves top 3
Extreme melody and rhythm, their best song I my opinion!

13If You Want Peace... Prepare For War
Though this track is not on their best album but it is easily one of their best songs! "If you want peace, prepare for war" is one of the tracks that really me into Bodom! So heavy, so fast, and a very entertaining listen! Right up their with "every time I die"!
Great hard hitting drums at the beginning, amazing guitar solos and such an uplifting spirit!
Goes back and forth between amazing melodic guitar work and crunching chords.
[Newest]This one is the best and the only death metal song I like

14Children of Decadence
Hey how come this song be at 16.. ? It should be ranked 1st! This is the greatest metal song I have ever heard in my entire life
Awesome playing and screaming. It should be at least in top five. Because it deserves Alexis efforts to be on top.
Found a totally oversampled midi techno remix of this track. Horrendously addictive melody lines here. How is this not top 10? Incredible.

15Trashed, Lost, and Strungout
Fantastic song! I don't see why its not in the top 10. I don't like any songs in the top 10 other than Are You Dead Yet?. One of the best metal songs I've ever heard. And where is Was It Worth It? That's also one of my favorites.
1. Trashed, Lost and Strungout
2. Blooddrunk
3. Was It Worth It?
4. If You Want Peace... Prepare for War
5. Are You Dead Yet?
Such a good song should be in top 5

Beautiful riffs and keyboard playing along with the amazing lead altogether this song is a magic.
The best intro made ever...
Awesome track with wonderful riffs, great keyboard combination with guitar... awesome solos of both guitar and keyboard...

Great song... Nothing more to say about it the guitar riffs are awesome plus alexis vocal are outstanding
This is their anthem!

Old CoB is back!
Awesome solos...i love this song

20Follow the Reaper
This songs solo says a lot about the band and solidified them as one of my favorites for a long time. In my opinion this song should be at the top for them.
What... I didn't expect this song that low... This was the first song I heard of this band and for me it was totally badass :D For me it should be in the top 10. M/
Dis is One of the Best song by COB... What a solo by The "WILD CHILD" Alexi Laiho... He Is Definitely the best guitarist in the world... I Love This Song
[Newest]Great song, and great Album! Can't believe it's so low voted!

28! Twenty eight! Is this a joke?! It's way better than angels don't kill. Can even beat every time I die. Just listen to it, I promise you'll agree.
This one should be number 1
By far their best!
71? Did you sit in your house and smoke marijuana. This song should be in the top 10
[Newest]This is my favorite

22Not My Funeral
Awesome chorus and solo... awesome vocals... overall the best song off Relentless Reckless Forever!


23Done With Everything, Die for Nothing
UGH! the song that got me into the world of death metal & loving COB, the guitar works are unbelievably insane!
My parents buyed me Guitar Hero 5 and there I heard this Dong for the first time, so it's the reason why I have such a good taste of Music.

This song helped my to escape of a Pop-Hell named Gangnam Style

24Hate Me
How is this so far done? The Melody alone is exquisite.
The song that got me into CoB! Awesome intro and solos
My favorite COB song by far

25Triple Corpse Hammerblow
Can't belive this song isn't in the top 3 at least it is epic probably my fave (but I do only have 1 album) I also love angels don't kill it deserves 1st
This song deserves to be in the top 5!
Awesome drums and guitar playing...
After in your face and bed of razors this song comes in next as the third best!
Truly a guitar solo from hell
Alexi laiho at his best
[Newest]That triple corpse Hammerblow

26Bodom After Midnight
This ain't in top 5?! What! This rocks! Guys listen to this!
Great solo & great intro as well, they've used sync too.. & you'll love it...

27The Nail
This song... As well as the whole album "Something Wild" completely rocks.

28Black Widow
How is this not in the top ten? This song is very playful and has a touch of Mozart/Bach in it, too. Relatively short, though unbelievably rich in harmony and structure. Easily one of my all time favorite COB songs!
Rage, pain, suffering... Only in one song! Such amazing
Totally agree
Sincerely, I would say the best song

29Mask of Sanity
Okay how in the hell is this 24th
Amazing instrumentals and vocals, the chorus blows me off my feet every time I hear it, this should be at least 5th!
Their self-titled album was the best, and this has got to be my favourite song by them. Those keyboards are great.


[Newest]Now 29th? This easily in the top dozen

30Roundtrip to Hell and Back
Amazing intro, blows my mind every time I listen to it. Should definitely be in top 10 at least.
26? Are you kidding me? This should be first.

31Bodom Blue Moon

32Towards Dead End

I love Children of Bodom and Hatebreeder, and this song should be far up there, along with Angels Don't Kill and every time I Die.

About Metallica, Beatles, and Led Zeppelin they're gods of music and don't try to mock and insult them solely because of personal preferences. I hate Justin Beiber or Lady Gaga but I shut my mouth up and you should too.
Are you f*cking kidding me? 60? This is one of their best songs (honestly,95% of their songs are my all time favorites, and the other 5% are songs from first album which I Don't like the VOCALS, they are kinda creepy, but it's amazing how ALL of their songs from 2nd album to 7th one (not counting the cover album)are masterpieces. )
I listened to some METALLICA, Beatles and zeppelin (best bands? Really? )and they sound absolute SH*T compared to bodom! WoW a long comment full of hate and love! Laugh out loud

Wow this song is way underrated!
It's very simple people this is their best song.
I love this song, their early years are the best!
Better than angels don´┐Ż't kill.
This song must be in first position

35Scream for Silence
Beatiful Riff and lyrics

36Tie My Rope
The best melodic death metal track ever... Try this out. It has powerful beats.

37Deadnight Warrior
Best Song Ever!
"It reflects hatred in my eyes" how can this song not be in the top 5 at least
I'm surprised nobody mentioned this song, this is by far a top 5 song, with the best melody riff ever. Insane voices drums and guitar with such a powerful rithm.

38Banned From Heaven
What, this is by far Number 1 for me. Angels don't kill number 1? Come on!
This is very much similar to every time I die... Deserves to be the 2nd
1-angles don't kill
2-banned from heaven
3-every time I die
4-not my funeral
5-are you dead yet?

39Was It Worth It?
34? This song is incredible

40Punch Me I Bleed
Love the mood of this song all the way through. If screaming vocals can be pitch perfect, then that's how I would describe Alexi's work in the chorus. That combined with the melody of the chorus make this song intense. Solo is emotive and is one of my favourite Children of Bodom solos.
Why is this song not in top 10, Amazed to not find it there, this list is crazy! Who votes here man!
Needs More recognition! This deserves to be in top 10, It has the darkest feeling than most of the other songs do. Vote fellas vote it to the top.

41Halo of Blood
Great Drums, best vocals performance

42Aces High

43Chokehold (Cocked 'N' Loaded)
Some awesome chorus riffs in this song. Love it.
This song is great guys, great solo and great dueling keyboard and guitar, great chorus too.

44Oops!...I Did It Again
Badass Cover. Not many Heavy Metal bands could cover a Britney Speers song and make it listenable let alone do a Death Metal Version and make it ready to rip someone's ears off! Even britney speers fans will cower in terror!
Simply amazing. The growls the tunes and sub courus left me in awe. Maybe this is why britney ended in rehab

45Somebody Put Something In My Drink

46Taste of My Scythe
I really like this songs. I am a bit surprised that it is number 45.

47Waste of Skin
One of the catchiest riffs I've ever heard. Great Song and stupidly good solo as always.
Come on! That amazing riff!

48Bastards of Bodom
The guitar riff in this song puts this song in my top 10. If you haven't listened to it before GO DO IT NOW!
Just can't believe it is in 45th place! I think this could be a good rival for needled 24/7 and other masterpieces!

49Hellhounds On My Trail

50In the Shadows
I know for sure now that most people who have made comments on this site are just kids or people who are very new to Melodic Metal or Metal in general for that matter because they have put a Britney Spears cover song ahead of this fantastic song!

The entire album "Something Wild" I think is very underrated. I am not saying that this song should be in the top 5 but at least in the top 20 and not this far down!

51Lil' Bloodred Ridin' Hood
What an epic song! Listen to the guitar solo, this deserves to be in the TOP 10

52Shovel Knockout

53Cry of the Nihilist

54Northpole Throwdown

55Rebel Yell

56She Is Beautiful

57Lookin' Out My Back Door
Dude, most epic cover version of one of the most epic songs! I think, no band could cover this song so great and fantastic like CoB! I love it how the band begins the Song and ends :P And yeah, the video to this song is the best :P

58Damaged Beyond Repair
Best song off their new album and one of the best overall


59Bodom Blue Moon (The Second Coming)
