Best Alestorm Songs

They are all such catchy awesome songs. Which of the Scottish Pirate Metal bands songs is the best?

The Top Ten

1 Keelhauled

The first song I heard by Alestorm - they got me hook line and sinker. Great pirate lyrics, and super catchy keytar guitar drum combo. - DannyBoy

Better than shipwrecked in my opinion, more serious and has a more "piratey" feel to it (instrument and sound wise). I like most of their songs really much though

Best ever!
The sound is great! Love it
An the video *-*

2 Shipwrecked

The most catchy sing along song of the lot! There could be a few at number 1 but this one has that extra pirate edge, and some nice heavy riffs. - DannyBoy

This has to be the catchiest song ever.

The 1st song I've heard of them.

The best

3 Captain Morgan's Revenge

This is the best... You can tell Keelhauled... And others... But look at the lyrics... This lyrics will say that it is the best... And the music will tell too... Please vote for it... - pirate703

Absolutely epic combination of great music and amazing story in lyrics. The song made me feel all the emotions of pirates whose story was the plot.

Best song off the album of it's title. Captain Morgan's Revenge is a great song/tale. One of the countless catchy chorus' by Alestorm. - DannyBoy

While Keelhauled had the best instrumental, Captain Morgan's Revenge has the best lyrics - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

4 Drink

Such a catchy chorus. Makes me want to blare it at a bar and have everyone sing along to it.

Yes, a song about *gasp* beer! AKA the reason why I no longer question my sanity. - Merilille

One of the best, such simple yet awesome lyrics, a must with drinking.

Just. So. Bloody. Catchy.

5 1741 (The Battle of Cartagena)

I'd say this one is the best because of the fact that it tells the story of a battle that really happened, but the instrumental is almost as awesome as the lyrics and there are omens and legends. Also, cannon fire and naval battles are always cool.

Best song off their new album, catchy and epic. Also, the arcade-y intro is just genius.

Should be #1. An absolute instrumental masterpiece. Vernon really is one hell of a keyboard player

This song is an underground masterpiece. So is this band in general.

6 F**ked with an Anchor

Lets get this song to #1 please - Derrick_Fox

This is just hilarious

This song is so funny. The first time I saw this song I thought I had to be a meme but then I looked up Alestorm and found out it was legit.


7 Leviathan

Brilliant song about a battle with the Leviathan! Epic chorus once again! - DannyBoy

1) Leviathan
2) Captain Morgan's Revenge
3) Black Sails at Midnight
4) Set Sail and Conquer

Granted I've only heard the first 2 albums (So Far..). Also, any one of those 5 songs could rank #1 for me on any given day. Bottom line is, this band kicks ass

My first alestorm song-
Among the best

8 The Sunk'n Norwegian

If you've never been at a pub and sang the chorus of this song with a bunch of mates, go and tick it off the bucket list. - DannyBoy

I love this song so much, but be careful, a couple of days ago I was singing along to this at work, and my boss came in and asked who I was talking to!

Amazing catchy-ass song!

Amazing song

9 Back Through Time

Great song over all. "You put your faith in Odin and Thor, we put ours in canon and whores" must be the best line ever

Who doesn't love a song about Pirates versing and destroying Vikings and ninjas! - DannyBoy

Its about going back in time and using tech from 600 years in the future, to steal gold, I mean come on.

10 Death Throes of the Terrorsquid

Easily the most epic Alestorm song! The constant change of pace and righteous story leave me feeling like I need to go sailing instantly, and don't even get me started on the chorus!

I want to be totally honest here I originally thought Alestorm sucked... Until I heard this song... No this is no song is is an AMAZING anointment of Power metal Epic-ness.
This song make life make sense... It is simply Incredible!

Probably there heaviest song; a great song in sequel to the there earlier song 'Leviathan'. The song has one of the best chorus' of all time. "DEATHSWARN, OATHBOUND, NO GOD SHALL BE OUR MASTER, WE SAIL TO THE HALLS OF DOOM WITH OUR BLACK FLAG RAISED IN THE SKY! " - DannyBoy

Sounds awesome when it turns to Death Metal-ish in the middle - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

The Contenders

11 You Are a Pirate

This is the best pirate song ever

You're a pirate Harry!

It's a meme you dip

Eh, this is really cheesy and considering it's a cover of a song from a kids' T.V. show. It's hard to take it seriously - ryanrimmel

12 Nancy the Tavern Wench

I think that Nancy is a pretty nice person, accepting everyone into her tavern and all. - Merilille

Classic drunk'n sing-a-long. Slower then the usual Alestorm songs but a must play if you want to have a good time. - DannyBoy

13 Over the Seas

Another great pirate story being told here. Cool verses and chorus. - DannyBoy

14 Wolves of the Sea

Easily the Best song the band has written, it is just so energetic and joyful that I can't not love it.

Sounds happy and energetic - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Kickass cover of a kickass Latvian Eurovision song.

Someone comments that it was "the best the band has written".
Let me correct you. This is a cover song. They didn't write it

15 Mexico
16 Rum
17 Magnetic North

Ugh this song is so epic! Listen to this before voting please!

I listened it-epic!

Not their absolute best, I’m just voting for it because it’s definitely one of their top 10.

18 Hangover

Such a fun and great sounding chorus

I love this song! A great Cover.. better than the original (Taio Cruz).

19 Alestorm
20 Set Sail and Conquer

Amazing solos on synth and guitar! Overall a very powerful song.

21 Wooden Leg
22 Heavy Metal Pirates

This is amazing song need #1

23 The Quest
24 Scraping the Barrel
25 Black Sails at Midnight

A solid song to round out the top 10. This just pips out so many other songs that could have made the top 10. Pirate Song, The Quest, Set Sail and Conquer, That Famous Old Spice and many others miss out. - DannyBoy

26 No Quarter
27 Swashbuckled
28 Pirate Song

This is my absolute favourite Alestorm song

This song has a nice sound and chorus!

And for what!?

29 Wenches & Mead

How this isn't in the top 10 is bizzarre! This song is so sick!

30 Rumpelkombo

This is the song of my life.

Such elegant lyrics.


31 The Huntmaster

This song gets me pumped up to drink lots of rum!

32 Walk the Plank
33 That Famous Ol' Spiced
34 To the End of Our Days

I stand here alone on the bow of the ship
Counting the hours 'til I die
Abandoned to fate with no chance of return
I raise up my fist to the sky
But know that these days were the best of our lives
And nothing can take that away
So when we are dead we will all meet again
And fight to the end of our days

This is the song that turn me onto them in the first place! Good tune

35 Surf Squid Warfare

Please get this one in the top 10

36 No Grave but the Sea

"Absolutely insane song, masterpiece with an epic chorus as usual from Alestorm. The instruments are truly magnificent in this though."

37 Death Before the Mast

Why so low?

38 Sunset On the Golden Age
39 Mead from Hell
40 Chronicles of Vengeance
41 Weiber und Wein
42 Midget Saw
43 Buckfast Powersmash
44 Barrett's Privateers
45 Flower of Scotland
46 Terror On the High Seas
47 I Am a Cider Drinker
