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 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 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 Captain Morgan's Revenge

The stor guy elements of this song are amazing. ALL of the lyrics are catchy, and the instrumental is phenomenal. Amazing song from an amazing band.

Simply Epic

I love this song. This one stands out for me.

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

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.

I love this song. Should be in the top 3 - ryanrimmel

5 F**ked with an Anchor

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.

This is just hilarious


Lets get this song to #1 please - Derrick_Fox

6 1741 (The Battle of Cartagena)

My favorite! It's epic from A to Z

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.

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

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

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 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.

9 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

10 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

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 Mexico

Love the 8 bit intro

14 Over the Seas

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

15 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

16 Alestorm
17 Rum
18 Hangover

Such a fun and great sounding chorus

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

19 Magnetic North

I listened it-epic!

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

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

20 Set Sail and Conquer

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

21 Wooden Leg

Love this song

22 Heavy Metal Pirates

This is amazing song need #1

23 Pirate Song

This is my absolute favourite Alestorm song

This song has a nice sound and chorus!

And for what!?

24 The Quest
25 Scraping the Barrel
26 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

27 Swashbuckled
28 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."

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 Midget Saw
32 The Huntmaster

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

33 Surf Squid Warfare

Nice - MaxStickies

Please get this one in the top 10

34 That Famous Ol' Spiced
35 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

36 No Quarter
37 Death Before the Mast

38 Sunset On the Golden Age
39 Walk the Plank
40 Mead from Hell
41 Chronicles of Vengeance
