The Top Ten

1 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.

Ridiculously good song of the best metalcore band ever.

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

The symphonic intro into perfect hard but intense amazingness. My all time favorite song and I listen to all kinds of music. Should be #1

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!

The best ending to any song ever.

OMG! ITS SO IMPOSSIBLE THAT THIS ISNT NO. 1! THIS SURELY HAS THE GREAT GUITR RIFFS, AWESOME INTRO, AND AWESOME LYRICS. THIS SHOULD BE NO. 1 SRSLY!

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!

So hype. best metalcore song out there

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!

Most emotional song of the band and one of the best metal songs ever produced

One word.

Amazing

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.

The greatest ABR song in existence..

7 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 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.

Great song, many emotions, awesome guitarriffs!

(by the way: album cover is missing here) - Flav

This should be Top 5

GOD! The beat! The blast! Awesome
And it's my country :D

10 The Seventh Trumpet

Nothing but heavy and I love it

I like this song I love ABR. It the great song for 8.12 mn. I Listen every day before I'm working, it make me powerful! The Seventh Trumpet is the best of me. Amazing song, Good job jake, matt, jb, brent, and dustin.

The Contenders

11 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.

100% their best song

12 Spirit Breaker

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

13 Ghosts

Brand new song but when I first heard it I loved it. It deserves to be higher on the list even though it's not as heavy as their other stuff. Not to mention it features jeremy McKinnon

I really love the clean singing. August Burns Red and A Day To Remember are almost the only bands I listen to that didn’t release a terrible album in last years, so this song just HAS to be awesome. - Mixer

14 Internal Cannon

The best from leveler. By the way, why aren't the leveler songs inside here? Songs like cutting the ties, pangea, boys of fall, empire, carp diem, and leveler aren't here!

This song is just SICK. By the way the dude who made this list a mofo. Put all leveler tracks here.

Love the salsa bit in this song!

This is awesome! I can't believe it's so low down here
Come on people you don't have any taste putting it at 10

15 Invisible Enemy

Should be top 5 at least - erickim

The guitar can’t be beat. Plus the music video is THE best

16 A Shot Below the Belt

Well, in my opinion should be much higher, the behinning, the slow part, the mind blowing part after the slow passage makes it one of the best hardcore songs ever.

Oh the incredible riffs

17 The Frost
18 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.

19 Barbarian

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!

20 Echoes

Super underrated

21 Thirty and Seven

Matalcore at it's very core

22 Poor Millionaire

Critical lyrics,have been in the top 10.

23 Animals

Easily top ten! ABR ROCKS IT!

24 Identity

The guitar leads are so good.
I love the song!

Best song of the band
The leads are so good

Such a great song
My favorite

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

25 King of Sorrow
26 The Truth of a Liar

the intro riff and the riff about midway through the song is absolutely amazing. combine that with the amazing drums and the sickk vocals/lyrics and you have a reall good song.

Fantastic song, solid metalcore - dhjin2

Best song!

27 The Eleventh Hour

This song is so beastly and you could almost call it death metal haha

28 Divisions

Heavy as song but gets melodic towards the end

This should be #1. Not white washed you mainstream pussies

29 Existence
30 The Escape Artist
31 Carpe Diem

I've not listened to a whole lot of august burns red but I know for certain that this is a very good.

30th? Are you crazy people?

This song gives me goose bumps - Flav

32 Crusades

That build up and scream though! Come on listen to this song and tell me it isn't amazing!

Hands down the best, read the lyrics with the song.

Really people, have you heard this song!?

33 Up Against the Ropes

This song is the heaviest ABR has dished out. So much beauty

I cannot believe this is so far down, my all time favorite ABR track. Just awesome man

34 Rationalist

Such a heavy song. not to mention extremely technical at some parts. great lyrics as well. "YOU SKEPTIC YOU, YOU BELIEVE IN UNBELIEF"

35 Provision

Heavy as hell best intro riff august burns red has done and now a main staple of their live set

This Needs to be Top 10. No Questions

Should be number one!

Demonstrates the incredible musical proficiency of these mothers

36 Leveler

The line: The victim in me is dead, I AM REBORN.

My first song by them

This whole song is just crazy! Hard to pick the best abr song! - jwaden27

37 Salt & Light

Awesome background melody, heavy riffs, great screaming vocals by Jake, very meaningful lyrics and an ending that is simply off the hook.

It might not be the best ABR Song but it's definitely my favorite!

ABR is one of the few metalcore bands with incredible skill and musicallity and this song proves it

38 Float
39 Martyr Martyr Martyr is a Canadian death metal band from Trois-Rivières, Québec, founded in 1994 by brothers Daniel and François Mongrain.

I can't stop listen this song.

40 Black Sheep
41 Boys of Fall

Kicks ass! One of the best songs in leveler. Good job jake, matt, jb, brent, and dustin X)

42 Ocean of Apathy

Do people really not like this song all that much? This is one of August Burns Red's best songs in my opinion. I mean I just can't get over the melodies and the triplets during that AMAZING solo, and then that soft, bluesy-jazzy part that comes in right afterwards is superbly done!

The end is literally so epic. How is this song not regarded as one of their better tracks? I get the chills every tine I hear the ending with its amazing guitar riff and sick screaming.

43 Creative Captivity

This is an underrated song currently but is a measure of how ABR has grown as a band. Not the conventional ABR. A song where they have tried on different instruments and made it more epic and progressive. A love/hate song which I love. The song is about how the band is going to save metalcore as a genre. For sure one of the best songs I have listened to.

How is this song SO FAR BACK :O it is so amazing the various instruments they use. IT is the title song of the album rescue and restore and shows how they have grown over the years. A true #1 for ABR fans

How isn't this an obvious #1?

If people really listen to this song a few times they'll realize its one of ABR's best songs. It's so amazing

44 Pangaea

Why is this song so low, one of the bands best, melodic as well as brutal. Check out the 30 second blast beat halfway through and tell me how he didn't suffer a mysterious spinal tap drummer death while playing it.

What great guitar work! Really good vocals as well. A really, really good song. Also, the bells version of this song is trippy as.

45 Treatment

This song made me fall in love with the band. I don't think that's their best song, but without "Treatment", I don't know if I'd be listening to this band. It would always be the special one.

Best song off rescue & restore lyrics are amazing

46 Paradox

"Very underrated Song excellent riffs and all.

47 Endorphins

The entire THRILL SEEKER album is my favorite its so crazyy

48 Count It All As Lost

I had to change my pants the first time I heard this song and explain to my girlfriend why I just prematurely ejaculated in the car.
