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.
[Newest]Great song hands down the best

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
[Newest]#1.. Not even close. You can't listen to this song without singing along by the first chorus

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.
[Newest]Great song really touches your heart

4The 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.
[Newest]Filled with emotion. Tim really poured his soul into this one.

5Re-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!


[Newest]The powerful message combined powerful guitar work, this song is pure awesome

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!
[Newest]No doubt, It is their best song

7Make 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
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.
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
[Newest]I think it's awesome they made a song in memory of the September's children. And this song helps me a lot too.

8Give 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!
[Newest]Brilliant song. All that categorises Rise Against. Speed, Brutal Beats and actual meaning. Gold.

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.
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.
Incredible, Rise Against at their best
[Newest]Awesome song! A perfect mix of punk and alternative music. This is the song which made me listen to Rise Against

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
[Newest]A truly amazing song, it definitely deserves to be number 1

The Contenders

11Swing Life Away
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!
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!

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.
[Newest]This song sneaks up on you. Didn't want to like it, but couldn't get it out of my head and still reminds of an ex.

12Ready to Fall
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


The message and lyrics is just great. The emotion in the vocals are just awesome. All the instruments in the songs come together perfectly.
[Newest]They sure take a long time to fall

13Behind 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
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
This song should be on the 1st place. Amazing work on the song and amazing Rise Against album ever. The Prayer of the Refugee is on guitar hero, that's why it's known by everyone. Doesn't mean it's their best song.
[Newest]It's f###ing awesome! I can't believe its not in the top 10!

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
[Newest]Shows you what great band they are, as they transformed it and made it THEIRS. Doubt most people even know it exists, or it would definitely be top 5.

15Audience 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.
[Newest]I think this should definitely be number one! It's their best in my opinion, amazing lyrics and melody and I can never stop listening to it

This song is amazing! In my opinion the best song of the new album... So it really should be in the top 10! Just listen to it a few times and you will love it
I can't believe this is not up there in the top tens... Come on guys! Listen to the lyrics and you will understand!
"Make no mistake, we are not afraid
To bear the burden of repeating what they're thinking anyway
Let's raise the stakes on the bet we made
Let's decide to be the architects, the masters of our fate"
[Newest]Too Low in Ranking

17Help Is On the Way
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!
deserves to be higher even though saviors my favorite
Definitely one of their best. And damn, what a heartbreaker.
[Newest]This song means so much to me since its about new Orleans and Katrina and everything. the lyrics are so perfect and it deserves at least top five 🎆

18Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
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.
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


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]I agree. Most underrated song by them ever. A lot of people forget it even exists. I know every single rise against song well whether it be on there albums or released on some other medium and this is my favourite song by them.

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
[Newest]Definitely their best songs. Defines awesomeness.

This song is melodical and lyrical genius! It's impossible to stop listening to it once you have heard it from start to finish! The overall melodic nature and changing tempo of the song is irresistible! I love the diversity of the lyrics and the song meaning! It is very, very well written!
The melody of this song is so smooth and flowing! It hangs around in your head all day, but you don't want to get it out! I believe melody is what makes rise against who they are, and this song showcases that brilliantly!
I think it's a shame that it's lesser known! If this song was on for example, Appeal to Reason it would have definitely been a single and probably In the top 6 in this list! But because it was on there first album ( before they were widely known), most listeners, especially the newer ones, would have never heard this song and this is a shame!
This song is truly trademark rise against, melodical genius and a song every rise against fan can fall in love with! It's a perfect combination of the old and the new for rise against and deserves a higher spot on this list! Strongly encourage a listen! One from start to finish and I guarantee you'll play it again!
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.
[Newest]"Something has kept me here too long. "

21Collapse (Post-America)
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


Simply awesome. It shows just how good Rise against is.
This is the song I found after I looked up Rise Against after I heard Savior. Pretty much has been my favorite song of all time now.
WHY THE HELL IS THIS NUMBER 28 WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? This is their best only to be rivaled by satellite

23Like the Angel
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.

24Blood 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.

25Life 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.

26Under the Knife
I first heard this in the movie never back down it's a great workout song and gets you plenty pumped up
Can't believe this song didn't make it in the top 10...
It's awesome, short and leaves you wanting more Rise Against to headbang.
Excellent song... It encourages one to cheer up in life. To believe in that you are the best
[Newest]How about that riff!

27From Heads Unworthy
It's the latest song I've discovered from Rise Against. First I didn't like it, but with every time listening to it, it became better and better. Now it's my favourite


"I'm not after fame and fortune, I'm after you. When I've served my time I swear I'll come back for you (Watch them fall! )"=instant eargasm. This is RA's revolutionary message in one amazing
Simply great. One of Rise Against's best.

28Tip the Scales
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.
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.
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.
[Newest]Most underrated Song. This song is so good it keeps just pushing from the first second!

29The Dirt Whispered
It saddens me more people don't vote for this one, because I have to assume they have never heard the song. If you haven't, listen to this; it is absolutely stunning.
Absolutely brilliant lyrics. Original and catchy tune. Great meaning. I don't really know what else you could ask for in a song.
She got down on hands and knees one ear against the ground. Brilliant!
[Newest]This is possibly the greatest song I have ever heard, if it was possible I would marry this song! Listen. NOW!

30Dancing for Rain
What?!?!?! Number 30?!? This should definitely be in the top ten. It has one of Rise Against best choruses and is the my favorite song on Siren Sound of the Counter Culture. Everyone vote for this song!
One of the Best Rise Against Songs of all Time... Great start and just amazing for a Metal freak like me... :) Rise Against al
This song is one of my favorites on Siren Song of the Counter Culture. The rhythm is good and the lyrics are catchy.
[Newest]What? This is like one of the best rise against songs

This song deserves to be way higher on the list, its extremely meaningful it basically talks about all the material things in life we don't need and even without all the meaning the song is just plain awesome its defintely top ten material and should be voted higher, awesome beat nice rhythm and best scream ever after the bridge. League of Legends OP
Wow this song is awesome you guys need to listen to it. The guitar is awesome and the lyrics actually have meaning
This song is just so entertaining!

32Blood-Red, White, & Blue
This song definitely deserves to be in the top 10...awesome stuff...RISE AGAINST never disappoints m/!
Powerful lyrics - there is a real message in this song
One of their best songs

33Broken Mirrors
It's their best to me just listen to it you are gonna love it too. Totally awesome lyrics with the best music. I can't stop listening to it.
I think its their best song.
Awesome song! I listen to this before racing my kart.

34But Tonight We Dance
Awesome song. Embodies Rise Against, can't believe it's so low.
Why is this song so low? It should definitely be in top ten.
I don't know why this is ranked so low it is a really good song. Better than their new crap in the endgame.

35Worth 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.
This song should be top 5. The lyrics are so powerful, and there's a fast tempo to accommodate the power of the lyrics. Not to mention it has the best intro I've ever heard. "In the wreckage of a job well done I, saw a place I've never seen before yeah, at that moment I refused to close my eyes anymore." Beautiful

36Black 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.
I have listened to and have loved rise since they started. They have better songs then this one but black masks and gasoline is definitely the best song. It makes you realize that they sing for a reason and don't just make music for the money!

37Heaven Knows
Should be higher than all these "sell out" songs. Step up your game people.
I can listen to this song multiple times and never get tired of it. It ha s an amazing rock melody and always pumps me up! The story-telling are marvelous! You could actually imagine what he sees and feels!
Everything about this song is just amazing!... I can listen to it over and over again and never get tired of it!

38State 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.
I am almost ashamed to say I only discovered Rise Against recently when Appeal to Reason was like 5$ on Itunes. I've listen (many times) to all of their albums, and Siren Songs is my favorite my far. It's so underrated! RPM was awesome, but I found the Unravelling a little rough and unpolished, but it's still good.
This song is incredible and the most hardcore song the band has ever released. This truly expressed the meaning of rise against.
Crazy awesome guitar pattern. Great screamo

[Newest]What? Why is this 39? I think it should be at least in the top 10

39Wait 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!
Its cool song... Must listen to it... Agree with top 10 but it must be at least in top 15
[Newest]Love the opening and quick change of pace that follows

40A Gentleman's Coup

41Elective Amnesia
This music is just awesome, the start "we don't sleep very much" IS PERFECT!
#43? This song is amazing, vote this song way up there!

42Kotov Syndrome
Great Song! One of the best of them.
I don't know why this song isn't in the top ten!
You should definitely give it a try!
This is my favorite I don't care what anyone else thinks

43Long Forgotten Sons
It's just such a true song and it's just so much fun to listen to it. Always makes me feel better when I listen to it.
This is such a good song should be around 20 to 15

44Survivor Guilt
"What are you talking about? America isn't going to be destroyed"
"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
[Newest]What a sexy song

45I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore
Can only be so low because it's new... AWESOME
Great song, it's new so it's going to be hard to move up list though.
It's a pretty Good Song it's got a good Chorus!


46Halfway 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.

47Whereabouts Unknown
Are you kidding? 48? This is probably one of the most underrated masterpieces rise against has. The guitars, the intro, the screaming, the singing, god it gives me chills it's so good.
This is on their new album but it's an amazing song
This song. Oh. My. God.
The chorus just sends shivers down my back every time I listen to it, especially when the guitars just herald its (the chorus's) beginning.
Granted the middle is a bit rough, but the riffing just adds depth to the song.
Un. F! @#$^^. Believable! :D

48Chamber the Cartridge
Great song, definitely one of their best. I'm sure lots of rise against fans would be shocked that it is this low down on the list. It should be higher.
One does not simply make a top 10 Rise Against songs list. Too many to choose from, but I'd put this song in my top 10.
Seriously? This song should be way higher

49The Unraveling
One of the slow songs by this band

50People Live Here
Best song on Black Market. Love the slow tone and acoustic sound. It beats out Hero of War and Swing Life Away ass on of their better acoustic songs. Best intro it beats survivors guilt.
"My God is better than yours"
Amazing song, my favourite on The Black Market album. I love the lyrics and the fairly slow but still powerful melody with the acoustic sound and violins to it. Absolutley amazing in my mind!
So deep, so amazing.

51Voices Off Camera
Totally overlooked song. Its one of my favorites by them. I am amazed that it is so low on their overall rankings =(.
The lyrical content of this song is amazing, and the intro gives a total adrenaline rush. Should definitely be much higher. Top 15.

52Hairline Fracture
This song is the best! I listen to it before races to get my blood pumping. Definitely makes me run faster. Should be number 1.
Amazing. This song got me into Rise Against.
Too low definitely deserves top 10

53Disparity by Design
What! Rise Against is awesome, and I know "Disparity by Design" might not be their best song, but it certainly deserve better than this. Listen to the sample for God's sake.
Should be on the top ten. The lyrics are deep and meaningful and the chorus one of the best ever heard.
This is my favorite song by them musically and in the meaning.

54The Black Market
This is the most beautiful song I'd heard for a long long time! It's amazing! The lyrics let my heart break every time I listen to this incredible song
This song is growing on everyone who will listening to it!
Amazing song!
Hopefully it will start to climb this list more.


Rise Against's first incredible song. Unbeatable on feeling.
This is such an amazing song. It's a shame it's not higher on this list. Tim's vocals are just absolutely incridible in this song

57This Is Letting Go
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.
This is awesome!
And deserves to be much higher up on this list the theme is just EPIC!
I absolutely love this song. Has to be in my top 5. Put on some headphones, turn it up, and enjoy.
[Newest]I was instantly hooked the first time I heard it

Such an amazing song, blew me away when I heard the new B-sides album long forgotten songs. So great, how it didn't make it to the Endgame final cut is beyond me.

59The Strength to Go On
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.
Are you kidding me? This song should be WAY higher on the list, like #1
The bands most underrated song. For me its top 5

60Dirt and Roses
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


I love these lyrics so much, people this is a message to live by
[Newest]This song deserves to be in the top ten it is amazing! The music and the lyrics are both great!

61Anywhere But Here

62The First Drop
I kinda feel bad for this song. Certainly not their best, but also definitely not their worst. It doesn't deserve number 84.

63Tragedy + Time
Wow, only #78? You've got to be kidding me. No, it doesn't quite get the top spot (my personal favorites are Satellite, Good Left Undone, and Paper Wings), and yes, it's fairly new, but Tragedy + Time definitely deserves more recognition. It's one of my favorite songs from the new album, The Black Market (although I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore, Methadone, and Eco-Terrorist are also great), and this particular song kind of helped me get through a tough time of my own. Beautiful lyrics.
Without a doubt the best song on their new album. The way it speaks to people.. insane
This is a real insult to RA. The album, itself, isn't as good as their others in the past, but this song deserves to be up there with the biggest like Savior and there best.
[Newest]My favorite song on their new album

64Generation 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.
Generation is such an awesome song! Don't know why this is #64
Best you guys suck dick!

65To the Core

One of rise against's melodic masterpieces! It's just pure melody and rhythm! This song almost forces you to sing along every time you hear it! It's a song that you'll always find stuck in your head for all the right reasons, and not in an annoying way! Tim's vocals during this song are outstanding and diverse! This just amplifies the melodic effect of this song!
Instruments were also used brilliantly! Simple yet rhythmic and addictive guitar riffs are used and are paired perfectly with the vocals!
A mesmerising song that you can't stop tapping your foot to or miming the lyrics! In considerable time I can see this song reach near the top 10!
Absolute melodical genius by rise against and I strongly recommend a listen!
The best song of The Black Market and one of the best Rise Against songs. The lyrics are the highlight and the chorus is a anthem. It's that good.

67Last Chance Blueprint
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

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.

71Broken 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.

72My Life Inside Your Heart
Love this song so hard. Gives me shivers.

"And this is part of me, I hope you never see. This is my life inside your heart"
Gives me chills, fantastic track. TAKE. MY. HAND.

73Midnight Hands

74Historia Calamitatum
This is one of the best Rise Against songs, however I hope that more people start listening to this song, so that they notice how amazing this song is
Awesome melody, awesome lyrics

75Alive and Well

76To Them These Streets Belong
Great song. Great meaning. Fast pasted and a treat to listen to!
Such a great song! Like all Rise Against songs.
67?! Are you joking?

77Death Blossoms
Really? This isn't even on the list? This song is awesome, are you kidding me?
Don't get me wrong, I love rise againts. which song? All of them! But this song... itss just different. the tones in this song feel wrong, but they're perfect. it gave me a feeling I haven't had in a while. please, if you read this, consider listening to this song, and think about your favorite song again. this is definitely my favorite song

78Anyway You Want It

79Sight Unseen

80Weight Of Time

81Ballad of Hollis Brown

82The Great Die-Off
Surely deserves to be ranked higher, the best song of their new album, with the exception of The Black Market.

83Amber Changin
My absolute favorite rise against song, it's so passionate and emotional.

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! "
Why is this song #82?!? It's probably their most underrated song! Everything from the guitar riff at the opening to the emotion in the part about angels to Tim's amazing screaming chorus is so powerful! It's one of their only songs that have no idea what the meaning is, and frankly, I like it that way. This song is so mysterious, it's just... wow. And I get chills every time I hear " I know that we are the torches in the dark! "
Simply amazing song. Should be A LOT higher up there than it is. Give it a listen people you'll like it!

86The Art of Losing

873 Day Weekend

88Zero Visibility
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
Without a doubt the best song on TBM and better than any song on Endgame. Why it's at 95 is a mystery.
