Best Alter Bridge Songs

Best songs by the American rock band Alter Bridge - hard rock, alternative metal, post-grunge...

The Top Ten

1 Blackbird Blackbird Cover Art

Great song. Epic solo. Definitely better than metalingus...

Great song.. Every time I heard this song in my car make me want to pick my guitar instead of steering wheel.. Genius build-up tone. Riffing and solo..

Metalingus? It's a great song and all, but it's not even in their top 20 for me. Blackbird is a masterpiece. It's only WWE fans that haven't even listened to all of AB's songs that like metalingus that much.

Awesome song. Definitely the best song of theirs to hear live

2 Metalingus Metalingus Cover Art

I may be a WWE & Edge fan but this is truly an amazing song! The guitar and the rhythm are simply incredible. This song is definitely.. must-hear. One of ma favs EVER.

Even if I was'nt an Edgehead I still would have loved it!

Well, I Worship many songs and Like BLACKBIRD very much, but in the end I suppose Metalingus is the Best, Its like the Anthem for me... Its the Best!... M/

I found out about Alter Bridge when WWE Superstar Edge used Metalingus as his entry theme. I have both One Day Remains & Blackbird Albums. Once I found out that Blackbird was better than Metalingus, I had to see for myself. Blackbird is a great song. Don't get me wrong, But Metalingus Deserves the number 1 spot in my opinion. Blackbird Is just not as catchy as Metalingus is.

3 Broken Wings Broken Wings Cover Art

One of my favourite guitar intros ever. It's absolutely beautiful how guitar follows Miles trough verses and than explodes in refrain. I love the lyrics too.

Broken Wings definitely deserves to be in the top 5/10. The opening guitar is awesome, the lyrics and tone are incredible. There's not much else to say about it.

It is an amazing, versatile song! The vocals of Kennedy and the superb play of Tremonti just makes this Alter Bridge's 'Very Best' song"'

Hell yeah! This epic song has one of the best intros I've ever heard. The acoustic parts mixed up with the heavy distorted guitars give this track a unique feel. Myles Kennedy's vocals are so melodic and what's shocking is that they don't even use one octillionth of Auto-Tune, so.. , this is an purely original song. The lyrics are written so good, man, Tremonti's a true genius. The "On broken wings I'm falling..." parts will give you goosebumps like you've never felt before. Just... amazing, not only is this a great song, Alter Bridge is also a great band. So if you don't know them, check them out.

4 Ties that Bind Ties that Bind Cover Art

Song is so epic! As soon as Mark plays that opening riff you immediately get sucked in! Get ready and hang on for a wild ride! This song is just Awesome. Love Myle's high notes and also marks Solo at the end!

This is the best song by Alter bridge!
it is just like Blackbird!
How did anyone dared to put it on number 3 it should be at the top of the list!
all the people are just idiot who didn't vote this!
first listen it!.What the heck? #3? Should be in the top 1 by now.

The. Best. Song. Ever. So easy to get caught up in it. The guitar is everywhere and you have no idea whats going to happen next. I actually thought about getting "beyond the ties that bind" as a tattoo

Brilliant piece of music and definitely on the top of the list of some of the best modern hard rock

5 Isolation Isolation Cover Art

it wlll totally blow your head... another masterpiece frm AB, should listen and vote for this legendary song, its awesome believe me

Awsommmmee... This is from there upcoming album ABIII.. Just listen to it.. totally amazing...!

This should be up higher, and I guess its not only because it's sorta new...
It's so different from the rest of their stuff, it kicks ass!

Blackbirds is a long Boring song. But Isolation is great Lyrics and good song. Greatest Hit song it all time. Isolation better than the best.

Definitely one of my favorites by them. This song has gotten me through so much and will always be an all time favorite of mine

Beautiful Chores... Amazing song AB III Rocks...!

7 Addicted to Pain Addicted to Pain Cover Art

The more well known this song becomes, the higher it will rise. AB hit a winner with this one

This is a new great song by AB, I sincerely hope we can vote it up to top 10

Though their Fortress album was far from meeting the expectations, this was quite a song alongside Calm the fire.

Seriously...a great rhythmic rock song

8 Open Your Eyes Open Your Eyes Cover Art

Love this song, especially the huu uuh part, very amazing

I love the guitar solo in this song, Mark has many good solos but this one is the best in my opinion.

Great opening for the band and for ODR. The opening guitar is great along with the lyrics following it. The last half of the song is simply melodic, it feels like people would start lighting candles in the air.

love em all, but open your eyes is just absolutely amazing

9 Ghost of Days Gone By Ghost of Days Gone By Cover Art

I wish more people new of this epic song. This is their greatest song, no contest. I agreed with the top 10 before I heard this song, now I'm going to have to make some adjustments!

Ghosts of Days Gone By ties Blackbird but I voted for it because I do not believe that this song should only be in 10th place. In my opinion, it should be ranged in this order:

Blackbird or Ghosts of Days Gone By
In Loving Memory
Open Your Eyes
Watch Over You
Ties That Bind
Broken Wings
Rise Today

This is an Amazing song! I could listen to this all day long! Alter Bridge is a great band and deserve to be better known for such great and overpowering music, they are my idols. That is all.

For me, the list is-

1. Black Bird
2. Ghost of Days Gone By
3. Open Your Eyes
4. Watch Over You
5. Wonderful Life

10 Come to Life Come to Life Cover Art

This song has been truly disgraced on this list.
Hello! This song is the best AB song ever. Just listen to it.
The intro is totally cool and Chorus so very Thrilling. It's A MUST-LISTEN!

A perfect title to an awesome song. This song makes you want to COME TO LIFE! Mark's solo, Myles' vocals, Mark's backing... Classic AB!

It is just a truly must hear song simply awesome my favorite one lately

I think this is one of the underrated song.. It is one of Ab' masterpieces.. Must be in Top 5... It was so much guitar work in it.. specially the bass is awesome... Listening in earphone or headphone is recommended.

The Contenders

11 In Loving Memory In Loving Memory Cover Art

Anyone that has ever suffered loss will be touched by this song. Beautiful. Tremonti's performance live in Amsterdam was masterclass.

Really good song for anyone needing to cope with a recent loss of a loved one. It really hits home and is good for comfort. Deserves to be higher on the list.

the most epic lyrics on the world, no one can ever beat this... it's simply brilliant, amazing, whatever you want to call it... sorry for your loss mark, you are a fabulous son I'm sure about it...

Greatest AB song. The emotion is amazing. Superb vocals and spectacular guitar along with amazing lyrics. This song cannot be beat.

12 Watch Over You Watch Over You Cover Art

I love most of the ones above this one, but it's no doubt that this song is way better than the others. One of my favorite rock songs of all time, to be honest. A girl I'm getting close to right now, it was the first song she heard from Alter Bridge, and she said it almost made her cry -- it's that good.

This song has all the great aspects of the perfect song. It's slow and powerful but also rocking at the same time. It has a sort of epicness to it. Not to mention the catchy guitar riff and awesome harmonies.

This song gives me Wings to fly Beautiful T~T I think it's the best song ever by Alter B. I said thanks so much for that because I'll never be fed up of listening this. Yup, this is a real Love story for WATCH OVER YOU (l).

Come on! Wats this song doing in rank 10? This should be in the top 5! R you kidding me! Its far better than metalingus. Just look at the melody and rhythm of this song. Beautiful lyrics.

13 Rise Today Rise Today Cover Art

"Rise today" is such a great song. It gives you hope and grants you the power to RISE ADN CHANGE THIS WORLD. After you hear this song, you just can't give up on anything!

I love ab and this song especially. They empathize with the listener by saying how they feel such as being hopeless, but then they give hope by saying things like "rise today", "don't close your eyes" in cry of Achilles, and "on this day I see clearly" in metalingus

Rise today is a newer song but give it time, if enough people hear it, it should climb to #1

Undertaker vs. Mark Henry Unforgiven.. Hey Yeah Oh Hey Yeah.. I wanna rise today and change this world

14 Slip to the Void Slip to the Void Cover Art

Good soft singing from Myles within the first two minutes. Great Chorus, and Great Guitar from Mark. What else could you ask for in a song?

An awesome very dark song that starts off slow and gloomy to heavy and dark.

This is the most underrated song. Just give it a listen. I'm sure you will have goosebumps.

Why the devilisnt this higher on the list? It's my favorite song by them! Also, I'm a huge Edge-head but I still think this song is way better.

15 Words Darker Than Their Wings Words Darker Than Their Wings Cover Art

Opening is good, the first couple of verses is good. What really makes the song special is the last half. Just everything about the last half is amazing and every Alter Bridge fan should know about it.

Blackbird is their best song, but Words Darker Than Their Wings is a close second. The way they harmonize together and split vocal duties is just short of magical

Not only one of my favourite songs by Alter Bridge, but one of my favourite songs period. How is it so far down?
I absolutely love Tremonti's backing vocals. While not as good as Myles, his vocals really add a lot to the song.

Wow best lyrics and nice song it

16 Cry of Achilles Cry of Achilles Cover Art

The Guitar in this song is amazing, it's probably the best rival to Blackbird. The lyrics and chorus also can really rival Blackbird. My personal favorite parts are the Chorus and Myles's guitar solo.

Definitely their best song ever!

THE best song on a great 4th album in "Fortress". No question...

My personal favourite AB song. Although I do think that Blackbird is better as a best song for AB, this is second.

17 Brand New Start Brand New Start Cover Art

Fantastic refrain, perfect melody, gives me creeps. My favourite song from AB.

Definitely provides atmosphere and imagery, one of my favorites.

Brand New Start at 20 is a joke
This is one of there great songs.
1 Fallout
2 Brand New Start
3 Ghosts Of Days Gone By
4 Rise Today
5 Broken Wings
6 Wayward One
7 Ties That Bind
8 Still Remains
9 Cry Of Achilles
10 Before Tomorrow Comes

Brand new joking.

18 Fortress Fortress Cover Art

My personal favorite along with blackbird when I'm jamming to AB

Definitely rivals Blackbird for best Alter Bridge "epic" piece...7-plus minutes of riffing, brilliant soft/loud lyrics by Myles, amazing four-in-one guitar solo...just an amazing all-around track that deserves to be voted into at least the top 5.

Very too much good

Best song by Alter Bridge. Period.

19 Wonderful Life Wonderful Life Cover Art

Slightly underrated but not certainly overrated... This song is so awesome, but so are the other ones. But still you should listen to this song

I believe this is one of the most emotional songs by AB, you must definitely listen to and I'm sure you'll be addicted.

This song is the saddest song I ever heard so far. Awesome and make you cry if listen the lyrics with your heart..

Come on guys I know this isn't their best, this song touched my heart, and I think it can do the sane to you.
Let's give it a better place in this list, deserves more than #23

20 Still Remains Still Remains Cover Art

Its an awesome song to hear especially when we are I rocking mood
I think itis one of alter bridges best song of the year.

I think Alter Bridge are one of the best bands in terms of relatable songs and this song is yet another of their masterpieces with brilliant words through soaring vocals and master guitar shreddery

Best guitar work on the album. Killer opening riff sucks you in!

The chorus is so epic

21 I Know It Hurts I Know It Hurts Cover Art

This is defenitley one of the greatest songs of Alter Bridge, personally it came down on me hard, its very inspiring for those times when you feel given up on life

This song really helped. I have an unrequited crush on this girl at school. I couldn't bring myself to telling her and sank into a depression. Thank God for Alter Bridge.

Absolutely brilliant lyrics and riff and everything! Myles Kennedy rules

This is my favorite song ever I'm surprised its tenth I think this song should be first Thank you Edge for introducing me to AB AB Forever

In my opinion, one of the best guitar solos of all time. Very powerful song.

It's Nice and good song.

23 Buried Alive Buried Alive Cover Art

All of Alter Bridges songs are totally awesome, but if I had to choose, it'd be Buried Alive. It's got a good meaning to those who need cheering up when their down. To tell them that they're not the only one going through the rough times in life. Anyone who likes this song will agree!

Nice lyrics and good song it.

Unbelievably awesome riffs and rhythm!
I love this song as much as I love Blackbird!

The beginning and end of the song are PERFECT and the whole song is just a mind blower!


24 All Hope is Gone All Hope is Gone Cover Art

25 Make It Right Make It Right Cover Art

It's a nice song with very cute music. It makes me feel relax,

Never understood why this song got so little fame under the Alter Bridge songs. It's so awesome.

This is such a great song love it so much.

How can this song be 24?. It should be in top 15.
