The Top Ten

The lyrics and melody are fantastic. The greatest most super awesome song ever written by Rise Against.. It's like listening to god and all his angels sing.
It's an Incredible song. Definitely my favorite because of the awesome fast and slow parts throughout. Plus the beat is like freaking contagious.
Amazing this song is the best one that they have, personally I find it much better than prayer of a refugee... though hat is definitely second.
So Amazing the intro drives me crazy

2Prayer of the Refugee
Yep, seems almost like someone was actually telling a true story
The lyrics, the beat... wonderful.


great lyrics to pump me up before a rugby match
One of the best hardcore songs ever! Should be number 1!

3Hero of War
this song truly describes what war is all about, not just what the world wants to tell you, their best song and the most deep and meaningful lyrics of any song I've listened to, Rise Against all the way!
This is the best war song I have ever heard.


When I played it for him, it pissed my dad off without him understanding why. He asked, annoyed, "what was it about? " I said, "war is hell. " He agreed with that much, at least.
This is an excellent song to listen to and really describes how the world that we live in today is corupted by war and we destory us all in the end.

4Re-Education (Through Labor)
Great song. Rise against always writes songs that have meaning and address the issues in our world today.
The way this song starts is just amazing. I could listen to it all day. This and prayer of refugee are my faves!
They have many awesome songs, but none of them can top this amazing song!


I like the tune and the lyrics are just genuine feelings... Nothing sugar coated!

5The Good Left Undone
I like all of Rise Against's song. I first found Rise
Against through a risky buy of their album Appeal to Reason(having only heard Reeducation). Since that moment I was a die-hard fan.

Though I like all their songs, I will share with you some of my favorites and why I like them, by album in no particular order.

Audience of One: An instant favorite from my first listen of Appeal to Reason. Its still as great now as when I first heard it.

From Heads Unworthy: I passed over this and many others with my first listen of the album. But after another listen, I took a particular liking to it, especially the pre chorus.

The Strength to Go On: One of the ones I passed over, after an intensive listen I fell in love. "What we are is the sum of a thousand lies. What we know is almost nothing at all. We are, we are, til the day we die. Or until we don't have the strength to go on, til we don't have the strength to go o-o-on. "

Others songs from appeal to reason are also great, I just don't have forever to write a review of each one.

The Sufferer and the Witness: My favorite Rise Against album, and top 5 of all time at least.

But Tonight we Dance: Took me a while for this one to come around. Good change in intensity. I love the verses.

Drones: Absolutely fantastic. Excellent all over.

Bricks: Intense. Only 10 long, but still great. My favorite part starts 50 second in.

The Good Left Undone: Great meaning, change in tempo, just great.

Injection. Prayer of the Refugee, Behind Closed Doors, Survive, And The Approaching Curve are also great.

Okay I apologize I'm getting tired and I'm going to rap this up rather quickly. From the siren song of the counter culture, Dancing for Rain is pure perfection, and Swing Life Away is there only all acoustic song, and worth listening to.

From endgame(which I haven't heard all of) Satellite is great, help is on the way is good, make it stop has a great message and a moving video. I haven't heard much from there album before The Sufferer and the Witness, so sorry if I leave any out.
This song is unlike any other. The beats go from slow to fast and leave you utterly entertained. When I hear this song, I feel it and I can't say that about very many songs. They are my Nirvana.
This is my favorite song ever, I absolutely love it. When I first heard it, I listened to it over and over, I live and breathe The Good Left Undone. It's the rhythm of my life. Rise Against is unlike anything you'll ever hear. So say what you want, but I'm in it for life.
By far the best RA song ever! So poetic and melodic but still rocking!

The best song on the new album "Endgame". This should be in the top at least for sure. Vote Satellite!
One of the best albums I have heard in a while is endgame and this is the best song on it!
By far the best song from the new album, this song has shot into my Top 5 of all time!
Great after-bridge chorus! Makes me faithful always when I'm listening to this song

7Give It All
awesome song! heard it on need for speed underground 2 first and loved it!


Love this song! This was my reason to listen and know more about Rise Against! Its just epic! Always on my ipod!
Flatout 2 is responsible for me getting addicted to this awesome band's mindblowing songs! I was just blown away when I heard it for the first time!
This was my introduction to R. A

Epicness just got a new definition. This song is what Rise Against is about. It's rough, but also pretty deep. I absolutely love this song, and all the other songs of course. This band has absolutely changed my life.
Incredible, Rise Against at their best
Epic. Rise against in all their glory. Injection is the reason as to why I have fallen for Rise Against to begin with. Their songs are like ecstasies, and they mean more than people allow them to mean. Unlike so many bands and artists which are faulty, Rise against has proven to ingrain themselves in their music, and I see this most in Injection. I honestly feel that this song is a work of art, and has become one of my favorite songs of all times. It went from only hearing the name to falling for this group and making it one of my top favorites in music.
By far my favourite song by Rise Against, best song to get you pumped up.

9Make It Stop (September's Children)
Makes me cry every time I see the videoclip... Probably one of the best songs I've heard, with a wonderful meaning
Powerful song! It's the song that's got me thinking the most and it's sad If you know what it's about: the 9 kids who killed themselves in September for getting bullied because they were gay
I've been suicidal and this song is totally my anthem. It is so moving and I honestly cry like hell when I listen to it or watch the video. Think of the september children and what this song stands for. The world needs the change that music can bring. Our generation the teenagers don't listen to lectures and rants, we pay attention to music and what our bands tell us. Truly its like a cult. Basically we need the encouragement of this song and its meanings, the impact suicide has on others is big enough of an issue to try and better the world. No one should have to kill themselves because of bullying.
This one sir shows how sick the world is.

Survive is rank. no 2 in my greatest rock song of all time. This song is about the way of our life. But, it's not only our life, but it is also animals' life. This song is for everything and everyone.


Best message of any rise against song. "We've all been sorry we've all been hurt, but how we survive is what makes us who we are. " Amazing!
such a true, deep, and cutting edge song, by far one of their best
I have the lyrics of this song tattooed on my chest. This song kept me alive and even though I love every song they make this song will always be close to my heart.

The Contenders

11Swing Life Away
It's the only song that I can sing along to, definitely one of the best songs I've heard in a while. Rise Against all the way. Please make more songs like this!

I really love this song. It's calm and refreshing after listening to some of their other songs. It perfectly describes how one should live: loving and care-free. Who cares if you have a low paying job? As long as your making it, you'll be fine. There's probably some deeper meaning in this song, but I like the simple ideas presented. THIS SHOULD BE HIGHER!
Beautiful song, it makes me want to cry. It's use of descriptive words throughout, along with beautiful guitar make it irresistible to listen to over & over again.
Should definitely be at least top ten!

12Ready to Fall
Best song ever. the lyrics. the theme. everything. rise against is the most epic rock band ever. though I listen to metal more. this rock band is really really addictive. listen to one song song and I guarntee that you'll get addicted
Now I am ready to fall...
Wow This should be top 5

In my mind it's #1 Ready To Fall is awesome!

I can't help but sing Along and wanna Scream during the Chorus


They sure take a long time to fall

13Audience of One
This is one of my favorite songs by rise against. Along with prayer of the refugee, savior, reeducation, satellite, survive, and injection. In no particular order. It should at least be in the top ten.
Probably not #1 but definitely should be in the top 5.

Savior, Audience of One, Prayer of the Refugee, Paper Wings, Injection- top 5 (not in any order)


The lyrics of this song are so beautiful, artistic and meaningful. The rhythm blows my mind every time I hear it, for me it's by far their best, which is saying a lot.
Very good song, really like the intro in the beginning with the guitars. It should achieve better score than 16.

14Paper Wings
I have to respect the top 5. There are some amazing songs there. But this song is what made rise against a great band for me. Pure emotion and energy with amazing drums. Deserves a better place than number 16..

Please vote to increase its popularity.
The song that could convince me how great rise against is! (together with swing life away)
This song speaks to you may people this made me a true fan this is the first song I ever heard and can't stop listening to it... If you look up the lyrics or listen to them they are so well writen
This was the song that introduced me to the band... And I felt really good listening to it...

15Behind Closed Doors
This song is awesome... transmits me very emotion...
Rise Against Rocks! This song for me should be on first... this is my favourite song from my favourite band! ;p
This is by far my favorite song ever! It is amazing!


Best song by rise against without comparison. Top 3 songs are just the more mainstream ones and prayer of the refugee is on guitar hero that's why people know them
More comments about Behind Closed DoorsListen to sample

Deep inside these burning buildings
Voices die to be heard
Years we spent teaching a lesson
We ourselves had never learned!
Best verse:
The drones all slave away, they're marching overtime.
They serve a faceless creed, they never question why.
Disciples of a god, that neither lives nor breathes.
But we have bills to pay, yeah we have mouths to feed.
When they played this part live, the entire arena went nuts,
It was amazing.
One of the first rise against songs I've ever heard, amazing lyrics and guitar we are doing a cover of this son in our band
This song has such a great message, and my favorite line by far is- "If strength is born from heartbreak, then mountains I could move." Such a strongly worded song and extremely underrated and should be higher up there

17Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
The Most UNDERRATED Song of rise against... How could this be at no.19... There's no chance of such a beautiful song lying so low in the list... This Song Deserves the 2nd Spot... Unbelievable Song... Especially the tune turn at the mid-time...

Beautiful Lyrics...
Top Class Music...
The Perfect Piece of Music...
Killing Chorus...
Absolutely 1st class Material...

P.S. : Listen to this song once and if you don't like rate my comment down to the depths of hell if you don't like


The emotion in time voice is amazing, it gives the brilliantly crafted lyrics that much more meaning. I think the reason this and other songs from siren song of the counter culture aren't higher on the list is because most rise against fans haven't heard them. If they all did, these would be higher up. This, swing life away, paper wings, tip the scales, and dancing for rain are stand outs for me, the rest from the album are also great. Of coarse, I love all rise against albums, the sufferer and the witness being my favorite, I just thought siren song deserved far more then it's getting.
Tim packs a powerful lesson in the resounding lines of this song. The verses ask a impassioned question; "When I die will they remember not what I did but what I haven't done? " This briskly paced chorus reminds us how fragile our hopes and dreams really are; "When we build these dreams on sand/how they all slip through our hands. " But at the same time, Tim instills us with a sense of urgency because "this may be our only chance. " From every vantage, there is a powerful meaning behind these thoughtful lyrics; "the time we kill keeps us alive. "
[Newest]This song is not only the best Rise Against song but also the most underrated. It's emotion, sound, and meaning are only closely matched by other Rise Against songs. Everyone who has not listened to this song must immediately. "When we built these dreams on sand and how they all slipped through our hands and this might be our only chance. We'll take this one day at a time, I'll hold you hand if you hold mine. The time that we kill keeps us alive"

I can't believe this is not up there in the top tens... Come on guys! Listen to the lyrics and you will understand!

deserves to be higher even though saviors my favorite
Help is on the Way is a great track. I love the beat and mostly the lyrics. Its a wonderful track and deserves to be in the top 10... Please vote if you like!
Definitely one of their best. And damn, what a heartbreaker.
Awesome Song! Should be in the top 10 at least!

I really doubt whether most of the people who voted for the top few songs have heard this, but they're missing out. Definitely one of their best songs and the acoustic version is to die for. Please give it a listen!
Absolutely breathtaking. To me, the Acoustic version has a much more fitting pace, and listening to it gives me chills every time.
The accoustic version of this song is incredible compared to the original version. I would even say it tops Hero Of War as an accoustic song. Rise Against did a top job with this version of the song. If you haven't listened to it give a go!

Great rhythm, awesome guitars, incredible lyrics. Fast beat song that you really won't throw out of your head and most importantly heart... And above that all, this song was written after some serious researches, because there are some real facts of American history! Check it out!
Such a fantastic upbeat song should defo be in the top 5

How is this song so low? This is simply disgraceful. Anyway everyone vote for this song- severely under-appreciated.
The song that started it all for me, Thank you Tony Hawk for introducing me to such a great band through your video games.
All the people voting for songs on endgame and appeal to reason most likely don't know any of their older music so the voting will be very unfair.

25Tip the Scales
43? Really? This song destroys. It is the second best track on Siren Song, should be much higher on the list. Show some love people.
While, it is impossible for me to determine my favorite song overall. This I say is my favorite song on their best album. It has the perfect mix of Rise Against's punk roots with some mainstream exposure. Joe provides a perfect back-up singer and Tim crafts this song perfectly.
Best song ever by Rise against. Should be much higher... I'd bet if it was on the new album it would go for a spot in the Top 5. It 's just amazing in every aspect.

26Blood to Bleed
Within my bones this resonates, boiling blood will circulate, can you tell me again what you did this for?
This is one of the most amazing songs ever. The pain, anger, despair of it are all so real. Listening to it is an experience like other.
This song is crazy Amazing! It should be must higher on the list! I never get sick of hearing this whole album!
Something Rise Against always does well, is writing lyrics. This song displays the talent of RA at the top of their game. Perhaps not their best song, but one of their best and my most respected.

28Life Less Frightening
This is definitely my favourite rock song of all time. Can't believe it can be so low on the list...

My other favourite songs from Rise against (not particulary in order) are: Injection, Paper Wings, The Good Left Undone, My Life Inside Your Heart, Dancing For Rain, Worth Dying For, Heaven Knows, Behind Closed Doors, Halfway There, 1000 Good Intentions, Torches etc

Anyone new to this band should listen to some of these songs.
How can this be so low?! This song rocks! Definitely their best track and everyone should listen to it before they vote. Give it all, Injection and help is on the way are good songs too.
God I love this song. I wont sit here and tell you this song should be top 10 or anything like that but as my favorite song by Rise Against I wished that it was up there higher.

35State of the Union
It is obvious that a majority of individuals that contributed to this list are newer/latter day Rise Against fans. Although I have the upmost respect for all of their music, Revolutions Per Minute and Siren Song are by far the band's most powerful albums and particularly the song "State of the Union". If you were cognitive enough in 2004 to understand what was happening in the Middle East then you would understand what makes this one of their best written songs. No other music at this point in history expressed the frustration and disgust with the United State's foreign policies and administration as this song did. Siren Song of The Counter Culture helped me cope with the social and political climate during my high school years and, having grown up with 90's punk, restored my faith in Punk Rock music. To those fans that discovered, loved and praise The Sufferer and the Witness and beyond, please take the time to listen to the THREE AMAZING albums that came before.
Crazy awesome guitar pattern. Great screamo

This song is incredible and the most hardcore song the band has ever released. This truly expressed the meaning of rise against.

36Worth Dying For
This... Is the most amazing song EVER. I can't believe that it only got this far... Twenty? Seriously? This is absolutely amazing! I love this song so much. It was the first song that I heard by Rise Against, and even after hearing all these other songs its still my favorite. It just gets better and better as the song goes on. Its a very awesome song, and I just loves it. Alots.
This is rise against's first song I've heard, since then I love the band.
I love this songs drums, I like the chorus, and the lyrics are good. I think this song is a bit heavy, so if you don't like metal you may not like it.
Are You serious! 30! This is my absolute favorite song! Heartbreaker...

38Wait For Me
This song has some great lyrics. To me they describe a soldier promising their loved on they will come home to them, as long as they wait for them. In the end they get betrayed. They beat is great, Tims voice is angelic in this song, and this has always been stuck in my head! I love the whole Endgame album, great opening guitar riffs!
Endgame is Rise Against's BEST ALBUM TO DATE. They did amazing! Go Rise Against!

39Halfway There
I honestly can't believe its this far down. This way he says "when enough is enough, that's when you'll know, that you're halfway there" gets me every time. He its a higher note on the scream that is unlike any other rise against song that I've heard, and I think it should be much higher.
This is just the perfect speech to give to anyone on the verge of giving up. This is one of their rawest and most powerful songs to me-no melodies, or anything so sweet or subtle. This song is just what it is. Awesome.

40Black Masks & Gasoline
Really? 26th spot? You can really tell the huge majority of the fans here came because of the more recent albums. Revolutions Per Minute is RA's best record and easily one of the best Punk/rock albums to ever be released. And this song is simply amazing.
New Rise Against fans should check the old albums... They don't know what are they missing.
This is their best song, gets me amped up for a race every time. This needs to be higher up the list
It literally makes me sick that the Top Ten of this list don't contain a single song from Revolutions per Minute, which is at least on par with Sufferer...
Furthermore Black Masks & Gasoline on #40, are you MAD?!
This is a #1 song for many of the old RA fans

"Never? Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed... Spain was destroyed.
All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours?
How much longer do you really think your own country will last... Forever? "

I don't get why this isn't in the top ten! The opening and the part where they say
"It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees"
"you've got it backwards, it's better to live on your feet than to die on your knees"
Are so... Awesome! No other words for it
By far the best Rise Against song. The coolest opening and when he says "It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees." It's epic

When I first heard this song one of my best friends fiancées had just been killed in a car accident. It resonated with me and now whenever I hear it I think of her and how she had to let him go so she could move on with her life. Insanely emotional song, yet I could never ever stop listening to it.
I absolutely love this song. Has to be in my top 5. Put on some headphones, turn it up, and enjoy.
This is awesome!
And deserves to be much higher up on this list the theme is just EPIC!

It's the first official new song of Rise Against, since I know them. I search for new Rise Against-songs every day and then I've found this. You can find it on the soundtrack of "The Avengers". You'll be very amazed when you hear it!
Another Good Song by Rise Against from the Avengers, Its New now (2012) but I'm sure it'll reach to the top side of the list...

The Startup is awesome and the lyrics, once again they've proved themselves

49th? This is in my opinion their strongest song. I love the contrast between the slow guitar only bits and the heavy, powerful riffs that include drums.

Such a great song! Shouldn't be this low... All the fans these days only listen to endgame and newer albums! "One last chance to go! If I don't leave tonight I never will! "
It is a shame that so many people do not know about this song since it is not in one of their newer albums

65Generation Lost
PLEASE listen to this song, unbelievable chorus with an end segment that is probably the best thing Rise Against have ever come up with in my eyes, especially impactful in some live performances easily found on YouTube. Easily identifiable lyrics too. Absolute class.
Best you guys suck dick!

67Broken English
Broken English is #57? Really? Just take the sample into account and you have a better song than most of the stuff released on endgame. I was really shocked when rise against played it live and no one who was standing beside me could sing the lyrics (not even the chorus). I think the reason this song is SO underrated in this list is just that most of the people never heard it and that is a sad fact if you call yourself a rise against fan. I, for myself, would not rate it #1 but I gave broken english my choice to give it a better rating, because although it is not the best it is definitely in the top 5.

The song itself has simply wonderful lyrics, with the best part in the second verse. Tim carries the song (as always) to another level, making it something really special. I always have chills in the second verse, by the way the music and the whole style changes. Another thing I really enjoy is that broken english doesn't have the nowaday typical rise against verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus format but three different kind of verses whitch keeps it fresh and different.

I would like to encourage you to give broken english a chance, as you should with the whole RPM album and also the unraveling. You won't be disappointed and I guarantee you that you will rethink and regret your decision of voiting for a new song of engame or appeal to reason.

70The Approaching Curve
I love this song, its lyric are amazing and they aren't even sung making the impact even bigger of the whole meaning in my opinion. This song is to lowly rated
Another understimated Rise Against's song that deserve to be higher on the list. This is an unique one in which most of the lyrics is spoken. And the chorus is beatiful.

Incredible song. It's awesome! The slow passages in combination with the well known loud shouting makes this song special. I love the recurred part when he sings: "I'm still waiting! "
Simply amazing song. Should be A LOT higher up there than it is. Give it a listen people you'll like it!
If more newcomers decided to listen to RPM then all of the songs would be MUCH higher up on the list. This is the best BY FAR. I get chills listening to the slow part...

It reminds me of midnight hands and Broken Mirrors, they both have this blues tone that is so different, that Rise Against can only pull off.
One of the best songs from the new album

God damn have you ever heard this song!? It has got to be my favorite slow song. This song definitely doesn't deserve 51st! Come on people listen to this then vote it up!
Deserves to be much higher than this! In my opinion it's one of the best slow songs. Reminds me of snow patrol's set fire to the third bar.
Beautiful is the one word I can think of to describe this song.
