Best Billy Talent Songs

The Top Ten

1 Fallen Leaves

Like the whole album, this is my favorite song, epic music video also! This song is the best!

This song is quite simply the bomb. Don't get me wrong, I love Red Flag, but from Kowalewicz's incredible vocals to the catchy guitar riff, this song deserves the number 1 spot. Oh, and one more thing: GIVE THE DRUMMER SOME!

It's a good song. WAY better than the others. Sure I like Red Flag and all those other songs. Like devil on my shoulder. But this deserves better. But one thing always comes in the songs:they barley have any verses. They just have the title in it and that's it. And some of the songs I just don't get.

Saint veronika should be number one

2 Red Flag

Once I heard it, I kept on listening to it for the rest of the day!

Cast of the crutch that kills the pain
woot woot awesome song

Such a great song. DEfinetly deserves to be number 1.

The kids of tomorrow don't need today when they live in the sins of yesterday.

3 Viking Death March

This song is amazing and deserves to be in the top ten as soon as possible.
I can honestly not get enough of this song. This song tells me when their new album is released it will be phenomenal. Billy talent is gonna make the leads festival so unforgettable.

Should be number one. This is my favourite Billy Talent song, besides Red Flag and Kingdom of Zod. It's message hit me hard form the get go and pretty much everything else about it. Needs more air time and should definitely be number one.

This is the absolute greatest rock song. Maybe an exaggeration, but it's so much better than Red Flag and Fallen Leaves, which are great songs but do not match up to the awesomeness of Viking Death March. - YoshiDragon240

One word# epic.. this song gets you from the moment the music starts... great vocals, great guitar work, fantastic drum work and alive video..

4 Try Honesty

This song always gets me pumped up, it epitomizes why I love Billy Talent, it's some of their early and best work. Great tune.

This is their best song apart from Devil in a Midnight Mass. I agree with the comment below, this song always pumps me up. But I can't believe that St. Vronika is below Rusted from the Rain. Rusted from the Rain is a mainstream song that frankly isn't that good.

This song is a mix of calm and furious feelings and it does it so much. This song makes me dream every time I listen to it.

Billy Talent have many good songs but this was their first hit and its sound very great!

5 Rusted from the Rain

Really god song. I stumble through the wreckage rusted from the rain! There's nothing left to salvage, no one left to blame. Among the broken mirrors, I don't look the same..

Best solo I've ever heard. Nice text and awesome riff. - lars11

I'm not a big fan of Billy Talent but this song is awesome. The voice is amazing, the lyrics are excellent and the guitar is just perfect! I don't understand why this song is not number one... Maybe only beacause it's too commercial for real Billy talent fan... Maybe!

6 Devil in a Midnight Mass

The meaning of the song makes it even more awesome! It does not attack christianity as some believe, it tells a story of a priest who molested over 100 kids.

This is personally my favorite song it use to be red flag then when dead silence released it was viking death march
These two songs made me wanna get into billy talent and that was when I found this song I heard it and instantly loved it is is a great punk song and it is also about true events

Best pump up song ever

I loved this song

7 Surrender

Surrender is easily my favourite song from Billy Talent. Just like a lot of the songs on Billy Talent 2 they manage to keep them up beat interesting and meaningful. The emotion In the song, the meaning and lyrics in this song truly shows what Billy Talent is capable of

This song is just so good; it perfectly captures their ability to write catchy songs that still have meaningful lyrics. It is an extremely emotional song and is one of my favourites.

How is this not number 1? This and white sparrows are my two favourite songs and they just barely cracked the top ten, both these songs never seem to get old. Definitely should be #1.

Really cool song

8 This is How It Goes

The first song from their first album, and from here on they never looked back. This kind of upbeat music is what makes Billy Talent the band they are today. From the vicious and emotional chorus to the harmonic tones of the bridge, This Is How It Goes truly takes control whether you like it or not.

Really man this is one of the best Top 5 at least

Great song, it reminds how important it is to carry on and don't give up in life. It shows, that Billy Talent isn't about the money but about friendship and the fun. great job guys, carry on!

The energy and the screaming and Jon's awesome bass work, what more do you need?

9 White Sparrows

I don't think you can even classify this a song. It's an experience. The pure emotion throughout and the chilling lyrics make this easily my favorite song from them. This is Billy Talent's Bohemian Rhapsody, The Wall, Stairway to Heaven, insert revolutionary rock song here. - DaRealXgen

The raw emotion in this song is absolutely chilling. It might not be as popular as some of their other songs but give it a listen and you will see why it is one of their best.

This song is amazing and I believe we should make its way to the top 5 download and check it out.

Honestly in my opinion, this should be in the top 3! Fallen Leaves is my number 5 personally.

Amazing guitar work and I love early Billy Talent stuff


My cell phone ringer song! Whenever I hear them, I think of their sweet concerts and handsome Benjamin!

Good song with high energy

The Contenders

11 Diamond on a Landmine

I don't know why but there's something about this song that make wanna listen to it all the time without getting bored

I simply love this song! It's so unique. Naturally, the subject about which he's talking about is a sad and painful one. Yet, the way he sings it comes at a complete contrast with its vivid and dynamic rhythm and because of that it's like he's trying to get over it.

Nevermind how much time I listen this song it is still as amazing as the first time I heard it. So much better than Red Flag.

It's so awesome.

13 Nothing to Lose

Great Song With Great Meaning. Deserves Higher Than This

There is no way that this shouldn't be in the top 10. It's got everything that makes music great: meaningful lyrics (which tell a great story), nice instrumentals, and a lot of emotion. I LOVE IT!

I can't believe I had to add this song it's definitely not in the top 20 but I deserves a spot in the 30's the lyrics are so meaning full and there are some good screams I'm just in shock wasn't on here before.

This deserves to be higher!

14 Saint Veronika

Why is this not in the top 3? Honestly this song has so much meaning and I just can't flat it also the bridge after the 2nd chorus is just orgasmic

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SONG! Best Billy Talent song, in my opinion. This really should get a higher rating. I got obsessed with Billy Talent through this song.

Don't know why this isn't higher, best song on Billy Talent III album at least, if not overall. - youngkinde

As hole this is the best nomber one

15 The Dead Can't Testify

It's actually pretty creepy how easy it is to immerse in the storyline that is told in this song. Everything fits together. One could simply call it a prime example of Billy Talent's capacities in songwriting!
As far as I am concerned I would always put it in the first place of my favourite Billy Talent songs!

Amazing song! Has a creepy feel to it, dark, moody, mellow, intense and tell's a interesting story very emotional. One of most powerful songs!

AWESOME song! Can't understand how is so underrated. One of the best songs of Billy Talent, worth listen!

Could we please, please, please take a second to admire jon's amazing bass in this songs verses?

16 This Suffering

This Suffering, Prisoners Of Today and Hanging By A Thread, hands down my top 3.
St Veronica & Surprise Surprise probs complete top 5.

Red Flag is an awesome track to get you hooked on the band, but there's so much more to them!

Best Song For Billy Talent People! Unfair Not to be in top 5 even! Vote Please To All Billy Talent Lovers! Listen To The Song More..

Can't stop listening to this song, it really needs to be in the top 5 at least. So unreal.

So underrated. Definitely my favorite Billy Talent song. Gives me goosebumps every time.

17 Stand Up and Run

It's a different type of song, but it's awesome. The title is so badass, too: "Stand Up And Run".

18 Line & Sinker

This song was my favorite because of the movie Grind. This song is a pump up when me and my friends are about to skate down stair sets.

No. 15? This should be in the Top 10 at the least badass song 1st one I also ever heard by Billy Talent on the movie GRIND! - OasisFeelsLove

19 Pins and Needles

A contender for second at least! Surely? Great song with awesome intro. Definitely my favourite.

This song is wicked pure perfection. Catchy, emotional, amazing lyrics, amazing musicianship.
Brilliant, really. I knew this song a long time ago, and I recently discovered it's a Billy Talent song.
Perfect. Just perfect.

Honestly this is is a pretty deep cut but God is it amazing. Its one of their most underrated songs. It's an absolute emotional rollercoaster - Epic_alpaca

Probably one of the best but songs in my opinion. Easy top 5

20 Prisoners of Today

Truly Amazing song... I'm very supposed to not see it on the top 10. If you really want to know a good band then stop just listening to the singles and listen to the full albums a few times. Eventually you will understand why they chose to put those songs on the album

I feel really strange about Billy Talent - my favorites are Prisoners of Today, St. Veronika, Voices of Violence, Line n Sinker, etc. Many people just listen to Fallen leaves and Red flag and say, that every other song "is the same" - well not to me!
Another weird thing - I prefer the live songs from 666 to the studio versions.. Which I don't understand to this day.. What I do understand, is how awesome Billy Talent is!
