Best Anberlin Songs

Anberlin is one of the best Alternative Band from America. Which song of them do you like most?

The Top Ten

1 The Feel Good Drag

I love this song! The acoustic version is also very good and Stephen's voice is just amazing. You would never know that he was a singer unless you heard him.

This is the best song they had! This is one of my best songs. Awesome beats and superb guitar play vote it up

An amazing song that is extremely catchy! This and Alexithymia are my two favourites. They have the perfect combination of smooth riffs, catchy chorus' and lyrics that actually make sense unlike some other bands

Never heard of this this band before this. Heard it one time and now I can't wait to see what else it has in store!

2 (*Fin)

Feel good drag is slightly overrated for being a formulaic rock song. This song on the other hand deserves to be number 1. This is the perfect reflection of everything Anberlin is in one package. Always get chills when the children's choir comes in and Stephen screams out as if he's crying out to God. Masterpiece 10/10

Simply must be heard to be understood. The lyrics read like a confessional; nothing can match the feeling of abject wonder felt at the conclusion of the song. This song is the perfect ending to anything.

My absolute favorite Anberlin song, although the unwinding cable car is a close second. It's absolutely amazing how deep this song is. The last three minutes are the best. - Luvaddict77

Greatest mix of acoustic and alternative rock...

3 Paper Thin Hymn

great lyrics... this should be no. 2 after feel good drag, really a good song to hear

Anberlin really hit their stride on the "Never Take" record, and while the title track is fantastic, this song follows it up with not only major riffage, but some of the most emotional lyrics of the band's career.

This is their best song.. great lyrics from a great band. This is the first Anberlin song I listened to and since then I can't stop listening to them.

Favorite song. Such a sad music video. - OasisFeelsLove

4 The Unwinding Cable Car

this song haunts me... this has a ring of truth and half-revealed truths that makes me think of the inevitables... I haven't been able to get this off my head even though I listen to it 24/7

This song is easily number 1 or 2. Godspeed > Feel good drag and Unwinding Cable Car > *Fin & Paper Thin Hymn. Like Godspeed, the song just doesn't get old or played out. Acoustics are perfect with his voice in this song. Superb melody.

This is the first song I heard of this band and I have fallen in love with them. Now listening to their other tracks to see if they are as brilliant in their other songs.

By far their best! The acoustic is so atmospheric and the vocals are what makes an acoustic/indie style great. - dhjin2

5 Godspeed

Just simply amazing. The song starts out fast passed and stays that way with an incredible bass and lyrics.

The second song I heard by Anberlin after The Feel Good Drag... this song is what got me hooked on Anberlin and will forever be one of my favorite songs

6 Dismantle.Repair

Beautiful song; the ideas presented in this song are quite abstract, and can be interpreted in many ways, as I've seen on forums about it, though the most prominent one I've seen is about someone who can almost unknowingly "dismantle" and "repair" another, or have a powerful influence on their emotions and worldview.

How is this not even on the list? At least top 5, really powerful song :) Acoustic is great too! - kchan12

It's just an amazing song. Anberlin has always been great with lyrics, and this one shows off their talent.

7 A Whisper and a Clamor

Crunch, churning guitars highlight a driving verse structure leading to a triumphantly catchy chorus. The bridge, in a word: unparalleled.

8 Inevitable

This song is amazingly sweet. "I wanna break every clock" as in he wants to strop time to be with her

I really enjoy listening to this song. I am shocked it was not as big a hit as it was. Still my favorite along with feel good drag. =)

Best one ever.

A beautiful song with more toned down vocals and guitars
"i wanna be your last first kiss, that you'll ever have"

9 Reclusion
10 Alexithymia

Solid song all around. I'm surprised it's so low. It brings a lot of high school memories back. THERE'S MORE TO LIVING THAN BEING ALIVE!

Should be at LEAST top 10. I'm a little shocked it isn't

The lyrics are super relatable such as "don't try to wake me up even if the sun really does come out tomorrow" and "addictions at the table where family used to sit and conversate"

The Newcomers

? The Haunting

Such a great song! I can't believe that this is only a b-side... I guess it shows how good Anberlin really are!

Their best song till date. You haven't heard it you are really missing out their greatest creation till date. Period

Its truly an awesome and very beautiful song.. Maybe their best ever. whoevr hasnt listened to this song, PLEASE DO.

The Contenders

11 Adelaide

This song is amazing, although I feel bad for all the girls named Adelaide. The song has good sound and beat to it. Lyrics have strong meaning. The song altogether was just one of there great songs. Love it all together!

12 Impossible

Impossible is one of my all time favorite from Anberlin. It should definitely be number 3 at least. The lyrics are beautiful and just the music... Awesome song to listen to. "You're impossible to love or leave"

WHat number 12? No it must be at least in the top 10 no the top 5! This song should be number 2 its one of their best with the feel good drag! Literally my favorite

Haven't heard this song, ha? I bet as soon as anberlin's fan see this, this song would go up and up to a higher position! I'm aware that no one have put up impossible...

Excellent song!

13 Unstable

This just be number 2, beautiful song next to Fin alone

14 Breaking

This song is made out of pure awesomeness, from an old bottle of awesomeness which was hid away around the time when god created earth. Counting when they made this song, it has only been opened twice. The other time was by Chuck Norris.

Superb song miind blowing lyrics

15 The Resistance

For me the best their ssong

16 Runaways
17 God, Drugs & Sex

I know it's not on the list yet because Vital just came out a few weeks ago, but it's the closer to their best album since Cities, and their closing songs are always the best. - Luvaddict77

18 A Day Late

This be the bomb hands down!


19 Uncanny

Great song. One of the more unknown songs but it is still amazing.

20 Orpheum

This song is musically a MASTERPIECE. Its so beautiful that the music will stick into your mind for days.. One of the best of Vital (along with Modern Age)

A classy and dramatic piano with epic guitar riffs behind it. Honestly that's all Anberlin needs.

21 Never Take Friendship Personal

Sounds amazing in nightcore!

22 Retrace

Beautiful but sad. A song about long lost lovers. This song is both inspiring and captivating, and it leads you deep into your own past. It is just as good musically as it is lyrically.

23 Miserabile Visu (Ex Malo Bonum)

This song is a masterpiece... Beautiful stuff by anberlin - arpanvinayak

This is the most captivating song of their great run.

24 Breathe
25 We Owe This to Ourselves

Awesome song. Its got getter drums in it than most of Anberlins music I think which is probably why I like it, because I am a drummer. Should be second to Godspeed in my opinion.

This was the first song I heard from them, great song. Should be higher up.

26 I'd Like to Die

Unfortunately this song has yet to be released on an album, which is probably why so few people seem to know how amazing it is. To me it sounds like the ultimate love song, wanting to die with the one you love because life without them would be unbearable. - Luvaddict77

27 True Faith

While it's only a cover of a New Order song of the same name, this song blew me away when I first heard it. It became my favorite song so fast! This song is amazing beyond belief. It just sounds so... good! It gives you this feeling of undeniable greatness. With this song playing, nothing can go wrong. That's what I have to say about this song. All I ask is that you give it a try. Do it for a fellow Anberlin fan.

their new hit, nice and simple, it evolves on those who feel faithless and hopeless, listen and judge - scourge

This song's really underrated, despite it being a cover.

28 Haight St.

This song is pretty underrated. Epic lyrics, epic beat, and epic mood. Everything about this song gives you an excited feeling. Makes you wanna go out and have some fun with your good friends!

29 Art of War

This song has an amazing sound, great beat, and lyrics that stick. I had this song stuck in my head for ages. It's really emotional and powerful and seriously underrated. Definitely would suggest listening to it if you haven't already.

One of the most emotional and beautiful songs lyrically.

30 A Perfect Tourniquet

Such a beautiful song.

31 Enjoy the Silence

This is a fantastic, upbeat song that makes you want to get up and dance your heart out, while being accompanied by awesome lyrics! Definite favourite!

If you are looking for a great song, stop searching and give this masterpiece a shot

How on earth this masterpiece is no.24? It deserves to be #1


32 Self-Starter

Very fast paced song with great sound. I really couldn't tell you why it is so low on the list. I honestly expected it to be in top 20 at least. This is one of those songs to get you pumped. The name is certainly a description of its utility. A self starter.

33 Amsterdam
34 Dance, Dance, Christa Paffgen

The most underrated Anberlin song, in my honest opinion. It's the last song on a CD, so that's understandably so, but it has an amazing and addicting beat and a tremendous sound.

I can't pick a favorite but this is right there on top! The lyrics, the melody everything about this song is perfection.

My all time favourite Anberlin song. It's so sad that it is underrated.

35 Ready Fuels
36 Glass to the Arson

Not even in the top 20? WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO? It is there best song, only rivaled by The Feel Good Drag. Extremely well put together and very catchy.

Best song on Blueprints.

37 Hearing Voices
38 Closer
39 Autobahn
40 To the Wolves

I'm surprised this one is so low, easily one of my favorites.

Need I say more?

41 Stranger Ways

New classic from the final album

42 (The Symphony Of) Blasé

HOW IS THIS SO LOW? Ok this song is so beautiful and touching it needs to be higher up like at least in the top 15

43 The Promise

The last song from 'Cities'. I think this song is one of the catchiest song from that album. Ijust like the harmonies in the song

44 Dead American

This is AMAZING! Of the deluxe edition of Vital (Devotion) it's even better than City Electric

45 Modern Age

THIS IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE MOST EPIC SONGS THEY HAVE EVER MADE. Honesty it should be right next to The Feel Good Drag, if not in front. WHY IS THIS SO LOW IN THE RANKS. Everyone should listen to this song.

46 Disappear

Kinda goes hard, gotta give it a little more credit than not being on the list at all.

47 Naive Orleans
48 Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights)
49 Time & Confusion
50 Little Tyrants

I know it is a newer song but Little Tyrants is one their better rock heavy songs and I can't believe it isn't on this list yet. There are no boring parts in this song.
