Best August Burns Red Songs

The Top Ten

1 White Washed White Washed

It is there best song by far. Everything is great in it. The singing, drums and guitar great. Cannot fault this song.

The chorus just gets you so pumped. Amazing drums and the screams are just simply awesome. Love this song.

THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION. From that point on, you know that this song is their best. Great screaming, great guitar and drum work. Actually ranks as one of my favorite songs of all time.

The breakdowns in this song are really awesome. Listen to the beginning of the song. One of the best breakdowns I've heard.

2 Marianas Trench Marianas Trench

Absolutely breath taking. Just the flow gives me chills, not to mention there are some awe inspiring lyrics. If you are one for symbolism, enjoy. And if not? Headbang to your heart's desire. Easily one of the most unique songs they have written thus far.

It has extremely good lyrics and since it is a christian band, you can feel good about yourself while you listen too them.

The song starts of slow and calm and gets heavier as it goes. Amazing song and awesome lyrics. Deserves the number 1

Yes. Just yes. Their best song. Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. I had the privilege of seeing them perform it live &. Love it!

Favorite Metalcore song ever. Amazing guitar line throughout the song, Good lyrics, fierce drums, and just perfect arrangement.

The ending of this song is one of the single greatest moments in music I have ever listened to. The vocals, drums and guitars work perfectly together. The guitar melody that comes in over top the chugging gives me goosebumps every single time.

Easily the best song! Great guitar work throughout the whole song!

This song is so underrated to people I know. Glad it's #3 here. You won't ever fly fast enough to make time stand still! My favorite song, but have to say crusads right after also gets me going

This is by far one of their better songs when it comes to making you move. From its rapid fire tempo changes to the lyrics it's nothing but kickass. Both breakdowns are nothing but amazing and have me bobbing my head to the tempo every time I hear it. I will say the same for both of the bridges and give this songs nothing but good fortune.

Could listen to this all day. It's super Aggresive. Makes me want to punch someone in the face!

No other song's drumming can compare to this song. Obviously 1st place.

HOW IS THIS NOT #1? Let me tell you something, the album was yeah, one of their if not the most disappointing, but you can't discredit 1. THE SOLO (Brubakers most known one, his names introduced on stage every time to this song) 2. Breakdown with the final solo riff, first time I've heard that. 3. The singalong 4. The emotional but yet meaningful lyrics 5. Greiners carefully placed fills and finally 6. Dustins greatest bass slide if not the best slide of all time

Wow this needs to be higher I don't know why everyone hates on leveler but anyway empire is such a good song lyrics are to good breakdowns get me jacked and that melodic section will have anyone singing whoa

Personally, I think the MIDI version of this song (off the deluxe album) should be up here too. But as for the song, the last half of the song is just perfect; soothing to listen to.

Empire should be first and then Marianas trench.. Song empire is so good in lyrics, solo.

6 Fault Line

Whisper your grief
Scream your sorrow
Proclaim your love
Just don't call me your hero.

Best new song! ABR forever!

I think that it is #28 because not many people have heard it. Everyone should take the time to listen to this song because it's amazing. It deserves to be in top ten!

"If I could do more I promise you I would but this is your time" the breakdown after gives me goosebumps.

I just love how awesome the guitars and the drums change the beat so often. Just a perfect song!

7 Redemption Redemption

Amazing song. deep meaningful lyrics behind it. in my opinion messengers was the album that has all their good songs on it. why the hell isn't the blinding light on here?

8 Meridian Meridian

All songs are really deep in meaning and are awesome, but this song by far really speaks to me. My favorite part is "The people who survive the sword will find favor in the desert.
I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt.
I am the painter making this mess a masterpiece.
I will rebuild you up again. "
Powerful stuff, powerful stuff

To me, this song is just amazing! I haven't finish listening to all of their stuff but I found a favorite here. All the instrumental part to me is just mind-blowing! I feel like I'm carried away by the lead guitar throught the song and that reaches its pinnacle right after Jake sings the last word. Absolutely amazing!

Ever wanted to hear what an angel of god sounds like? This is as close as it gets folks...

One word.

12 Back Burner Back Burner

In my opinion, this is ABR their greatest song. Just for the guitar I would set this track above all the others, can't get enough of this, it pushes me every time again!

Amazing song, Great Guitar from Jb Brubaker, solid drumming from matt griener, great lyrics. Overall a great August burns red song.

The breakdowns are HUGE. An absolute beast of a track.

Incredible. The China Cymbal is crazy on this song.

Why isn't this incredible song #1? I have no idea. Its simply amazing and incredible. The lyrics are so deep and have such meaning. It deals with, in my opinion, the struggles of depression. "staring at the walls to pass the time" are the first words and immediately make me want to lay my head back and let the song take me away. Agree or disagree, id encourage anyone looking for depth to listen.

How is this song not in the top 5 nevermind 1st?! I just can't stop listening like it describes everything I have, and some of my closest loved ones have been through, such perfection in one song. When the lyrics speak to you that's what makes a song awesome!

This song speaks to me a lot and it's so great. Such a meaningful song to listen to when you're down.

I cry every time I listen to this song. - R3DJoe

14 Beauty In Tragedy Beauty In Tragedy

The only ABR song that can bring me to tears almost every time. This is a song about losing a loved one, carrying on their legacy, and joining them in heaven. Its, in my opinion, the pinnacle of their best and most coherent album. I'm positive there will never be another one as good as Rescue and Restore.

15 Identity

A Grammy nomination.. that's enough to prove why this is the best of ABR's works..

Their best song, the drumming in this is just insane! The guitar, the screaming everything in this song is completely awesome. This should be, at the least 5th.

Amazing because they killed it with so much less experience!
