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

The Top Ten

1 Blackbird

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.

This song is a masterpiece. The vocals are brilliant. The guitar is inventive and the solo is fantastic. The sections are all wonderfully crafted. This song is beautiful.

2 Metalingus

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/

My favorite song

3 Broken Wings

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.

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.

My goodness, this song is the most goosebump-worthy songs I have ever heard. Gets me every time.

5 Rise Today

"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

I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH! It is really sweet and catchy. 😀

6 Ghost of Days Gone By

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
Metalingus
Isolation
Broken Wings
Rise Today

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! - MusicAddict1993

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.

Love this song so much, all of the ABIII album for me is master piece and this song is one of my favorite. I play this song everyday, have such deep meaning to it and sounds great.

7 Ties that Bind

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!

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

INTRO

9 In Loving Memory

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

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.

This must be in the number one position

10 Watch Over You

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).

This song is a beautiful piece of art taking the listener on a journey of a love lost. It's hard to listen to this song without getting a little teary eyed!

The Contenders

11 Addicted to Pain

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.

Get to ten. get to ten. this song is "addicting". it's amazing in every way: lyrics, solo, guitar, everything

12 Come to Life

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.

13 Slip to the Void

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.

This should be at least in the top 5. Isolation sucks compared to this. This is almost better than Afterlife by A7X and What I've Done by Linkin Park.

The greatest way how you can start AB concert. It's just amazing how it's built. First Myles starts with a quiet sing and after about 30sek Mark Tremonti introduces himself with a powerful riff. It's just what AB is about - Tremonti is the leader, Myles just help him to be visible

Undoubtedly the best alter bridge song

14 Cry of Achilles

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.

The best words: Don't close your eyes, something beautiful is still alive.

15 Words Darker Than Their Wings

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.

The intro is kinda Blackbird to me. Myles ^^ Mark vocal duo is great, although it feels weird. however, this songs is kickass. Myles high notes towards the end of the song is simply incredible! You have to give this song a listen...

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

This song is everything! Love it, can apply to many people

19 Fortress

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.

Best song by Alter Bridge. Period.

Much Much better than blackbird for sure
Whether it's the melody the feel or the change of pace Epic Song
Take a bow Mr. Mark Tremonti

20 Buried Alive

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!

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!

LET ME BREATH AGAIN AND SHOW ME WHERE I BEGANIN TO FIND THE WILL TO CHANGE BEFORE I LOSE EVERYTHING
