Best Angels & Airwaves Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Adventure

Such an inspirational song. Full of meaning, and the intro is simply amazing. I absolutely love this band, it's safe to say I fell in love with them.

Best Angels And Airwaves song by far! The intro is amazing and the lyrics are very good. Tom de longe is the best musician in this world!

The beauty of this song (as is the case of many ava songs) is that every different person is able to relate their life in some way to the song. It helps great moments become perfect and reminds you when life isn't great that their is always hope. Love it!

The adventure shouts the word life

2 Surrender

This song has picked me up and gotten me through hard times and makes me feel so empowered and happy. The lyrics, especially the "I, I will not surrender" parts are amazing, and so is the music video. Arguably the best AVA song out there

Best song from Angels & Airwaves LOVE Part Two album. One of the best, period! Will have you singing at the top of your lungs when the song reaches it's chorus. - Hurricane1123

This song should be inplace of the adventure. The adventure is not so catchy but surrender is a extremely wonderful song. This is their number 1 song and there is no doubt about it.

Fell in love with Tom DeLonge all over again after hearing this song. Should be Number One - don't see anything special about The Adventure.

3 Secret Crowds

This song starts out with interesting electronics and keyboarding, and when the fuzzy transmission-like voice of Tom comes in, you start to get an idea of what kind of song it is. And then... It explodes into power, sending you on a wonderful journey through creative, life-flowing verses, and an epic chorus... The most powerful I've ever heard.

amazing, uplifting song, makes me feel really good inside

Starting off with amazing electronics, this song feels like the complete experience. Its as if this song transcends the ordinary, and it escapes to something interstellar. Sung with so much passion and emotion, the power in Tom's voice will send you twirling through a whole lot of emotions culminating in the perfect ending.
Number 1. No brainer.

AH-Mazing, enough said. - AnimeDrawer

4 Call to Arms

This is clearly Angels' best song. The upbeat, uplifting guitar with amazing lyrics make this song one to remember.

By far one of the most underrated AVA songs. This should definitely be in the top 5. Listening to this song makes me feel like I am in a dream. I recommend this song to any new AVA fan.

This is one of those songs that you spend your time just enjoying the noises then begin to decipher the meaning of the lyrics and find how deep a meaning it has. Probably my favorite AVA song.

Best song

5 Everything's Magic

Such a great song, great for singing along to. The beat is what makes it amazing.

Still is in my opinion the best. It reminds me of being little again, when the world was still outragously grand.

Can't believe this is 7, best song by far

This should for sure be #2 C'mom guys. The only one that's better is the adventure

7 Heaven

Very good lyrics and love the outro "Please stay, don't go, I've got you now... "

I can't even describe how this song makes me feel. When I listen to this song while driving down a long country road on a bright sunny day with my windows down, I truly do feel like I'm in heaven.

Awesome song which makes my hair stand on the back of my neck.

If not their best song, certainly their most epic

9 Young London

The song is beautiful. It starts out a tad slow, but it continuously builds and builds until it reaches it's amazing 30 second climax three minutes into the song.

This song sounds a lot like "natives" from blink 182 neighborhoods

10 Rite of Spring

The message behind this song is what makes the difference to most of the others. It got a very catchy and beautiful melody, too.
Number 1 in my opinion!

This song is about Tom's childhood, what went on when he was a kid, this song needs to be appreciated so much more

Completely amazed by this song! Gives me chills every time I hear it!

Amazing lyrics... I Love Tom Delonge

The Contenders

11 Anxiety

Great song, I love the message of the song, it talks about the struggles of self-problems in humans. The instrumental is great and uplifting, as well as breathtaking, and it gives me good vibes. The guitar riff in the chorus is great as well. The lyrics are well written like always and poetic. Tom has a great voice like always, especially in the chorus. - AnimeDrawer

Amazing song! Why wasn't this even on the list before? It deserves to be in the top 10 at the very least!

Amazing song! So uplifting and epic! Tom's voice sounds really amazing too.

Best A&A song, hands down.

12 Soul Survivor

The chorus is just amazing and catchy

13 Do It for Me Now

Sounds like it could be from a follow up to Blink's self-titles album. One of AVA's more tightly written and least self-indulgent songs. What results is an honest, well-crafted, balanced, emotional song. Easily my favorite AVA song

For me, by far the best AVA song.. The intro leads you amazing chorus and the songs lyrics keeps on crawling into you.. Really brilliant

If you think about it, this was a follow up to the self titled album.


14 Hallucinations

Hallucinations is an amazing song. It makes me feel lonely and happy at the same time. Listening to this song makes me want to explode because it's too good to be true I don't know I can't explain it this song is amazing enough said.

Lol, why is this down here!? Top 3 along with Secret Crowds.

How could this song not be the first? You all must be having Hallucinations. The only people in their right minds here are those who voted for this one.
Just kidding.
But seriously, vote for this song

One of the best songs, not only of AVA, but in the hole wide world! :D

Alright what the hell is wrong here, this is hands down one of the best Angels and Airwaves song, now why would it be on #22. Would've made sense if it was on at least #4

How is this 24th? This song is the reason I fell in love with AvA!

Is my favourite song, so I think it should me in first place

best song.

16 Shove

"Cause sometimes it comes with a shove
When you fall in love" badass lyrics.
I think you guys are missing out on a great song, plus on the end of the song you can hear Tom DeLonge's sister explain the true meaning and definition behind love.

I remember all my ex girlfriend when I hear this awesome song

17 Saturday Love

This song is literally the best ava song!

24 We Are All That We Are

Oh my, why is this down here? Their best song definitely, it's beautiful all throughout, the lyrics in the beginning and that long beautiful solo I can't stop listening too. You, yes you, fellow AvA fan, listen to this song you won't regret it, trust me

Beautiful song, best solo by AVA and Tom's voice is just beautiful. Deserves top 10 at least

I just love this it is a amazing song and just reminds me of good memories of my life.

So epic at the end with the guitar, lifts me up every time

25 Teenagers & Rituals

This song has been in my top 5 most played songs since it came out

Awesome opener to "The dream walker"

26 Sirens

This song is apparently about, him watching his friends sister dancing naked in her room, with Tom outside looking through the window. Apparently he said, at one point she looked right in to his eyes but she couldn't see him because he was behind a bush. Yeah something along those lines, there's a YouTube video where he tells the story, it's funny laugh out loud. Otherwise this is an awesome song, it can be interpreted so many ways, it sounds really deep and full of meaning, but at the same time it's not depressing, which is nice. "Can't let go... "

I like to listen to this song "From time to time..."

Simply an amazing song, could listen to it over and over

Beatiful song, makes me think of someone truely special

27 The Machine
28 My Heroine (It's Not Over)

Why has no one added this song yet

29 The Moon-Atomic (...Fragments and Fictions)

The best for me, emotional and with a fantastic rhythm! Come on guys give it a chance

The beat along with tom's poetic lyrics make this song truly amazing

30 A Little's Enough

The list is good, but really this song 'A LITTLE'S ENOUGH' deserves a top 10 position.

This sing is just plain awesome. enough said. real toss up between this one and a call to arms though. both are amazing

31 True Love

Wait why is this not number 2. You guys are missing out on a great song! The first song I heard from them. Please listen to it, the lyrics and the instrument combine to make this awesome song. Guys I highly recommend this one.

Dudes. If you've ever felt the title, vote here.

34 Inertia
35 Start the Machine

Absolutely immaculate ending to their first and best album, anything not on their first 2 albums should not be in the the top 5

Great song! Should be higher up the list.

36 The Wolfpack

A little different than most AVA songs... very electronic. Very good song nevertheless!

37 Distraction

This song is one of their best... Deserves to be in the top 3 DEFINITELY! I love tom's voice... Anyway, I love this song!

The chorus is so amazing, not to mention the lead's voice. This is the song that made me like this band.

Why is this song so low? 33?! Top ten for sure.

38 Clever Love

This is definitely in my top 5, along with songs like Shove, My Heroine, Tunnels, and Breathe. You can probably tell I like the more emotional songs.

This deserves a position in the top 10.
Guys, give it a listen and then come over here. You will automatically vote this one!

39 Letters To God, Part II

To me, the intro lyrics are mind-blowing! Take what you want from the lyrics, but this is one of their songs that just makes you think about life. Maybe not top 10, but worth a listen.

40 Reel 1 (Diary)

This song is the definition if AVA's greatness. Treating us with an almost 6 minute long instrumental intro, leading up to a beautiful conclusion. The piano work is really amazing on this track.

Very beautiful song

41 The Revelator

This is the song that made me fall in love with this band

42 Behold a Pale Horse
43 Voyager

Great chorus

This ep is amazing

44 Crawl

Best song ever! It's just magic!

45 Some Origins of Fire

From the album "Love". One of my all-time favorite AvA songs. The melody sounds similar to The Adventure.

This song is usually just overlooked on LOVE because it has a melody similar to "The Adventure". This song starts off with cool electronics, then the band comes in with thundering power, then a glorious guitar line, then Tom starts singing and it's just indescribable.
"We all are love and love is hard. We're hard to love". That's one of the best lines Tom has ever written.

46 Reel 5 (New Blood)

A lot of people put down this song because it's an instrumental and I think that's ridiculous especially for a band like this that makes awesome instrumentals. I personally think it's their specialty. This song starts very straightforward, then Ilan starts laying down some amazing keyboard melodies and piano lines, and then the beat grows, finally arriving at a spectacular and heavenly conclusion.

Great song with great parts in all of the instruments. Maybe no vocals, but it's still amazing. AVA is the best at instrumentals.

47 Paralyzed

This was the first song I listened to on the dream walker album and I was blown's very modern and intriguing...just great!

Very similar to Snake Charmer and Ghosts on the Dancefloor. Audio mixing is not very well done. Still a decent track however.

Eveyone is complaining about this song and the audio but I think tom ment it to be very heavy

48 Reel 6

Here's an instrumental off of Stomping The Phantom Brake Pedal that is a upbeat and exciting electronic song. WHOAW that bass. Amazing! Makes you want to dance, or run, or like the album title suggests, just hop in a car or on a motorcycle without a brake pedal. Brilliant. Also features some great electric guitar work and piano.

49 Moon As My Witness
50 Kiss With a Spell

Showcases a different side of the band, sounds like the cure meets electronic. Very under rated song on an under rated album.
