Best Billy Talent Songs

The Top Ten

1 Fallen Leaves

Fallen Leaves is great song, coo video!

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 the best

2 Red Flag

Billy talent sounds too much like Green Day but this song rocks

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.

3 Viking Death March

So much PASSION when they lay this one down, I get the chills. Really wish you guys would tour more. Japan perhaps?!?

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 must be number one, they have the wrong album cover though...

4 Rusted from the Rain

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

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..

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!

Awesome lyrics, Awesome music, no idea how it's not the first!

5 River Below

Amazing guitar work and I love early Billy Talent stuff

BEST SONG OF ALL TIME, WHY ISN'T IT NUMBER 1!

Good song with high energy

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

6 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 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.

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.

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

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.

This song has such a great balance when it comes to instrumental and voice. The lyrics are great and makes me try to listen to all of these things at the same time.

8 This is How It Goes

Must be their best song, I headbang to the first beats every time...

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.

Best songv ever

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

V 8 Comments
9 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

Decent song, not sure why it's not added to the list.

10 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!

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.

Such a good song, lyrics are meaningful and it still kicks ass!

12 Turn Your Back

Dang Good Song By Billy Talent!

I first heard this Song on an NHL Video Game and I've been hooked ever since! - Curti2594

Every second of this song is awesome, no empty space

13 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.

14 Devil on My Shoulder

By far one of the most epic guitar riffs I've ever heard in my life. This song's got everything: Cool lyrics, heavy guitar riffs, a great solo und much engery. Unlike the songs from but I & but II it doesn't need Ben's screaming to be considered energetic. It's a pitty that it couldn't make it to the top ten! One of the first songs I've heard from them and it still sends shivers up and down my spine whenever I hear it. It's Ian D'Sa's favorite but-Song and the only one with an own epic live-solo so far! A great example of modern hard rock.

Great song. Awesome tune and great lyrics. VOTE

I thought it would be number one the sound is perfect the lyrics too its such a great rock song

Amazing song! Will be on repeat for awhile now

15 Voices of Violence

This song is so powerful and just kicks your ass. Very fun guitar riff to play as well.

16 Pins and Needles

Been my favorite Billy Talent song since I first heard it. It is a classic in my book and even after listening to it about 600 times I just can get enough of it. Thank you but for this one song!

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

17 Saint Veronika

Best song

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

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 Man Alive!

Amazing song! In my opinion, best song in the new album! Definitely give this song a listen!

In the top 3 of Dead Silence in my opinion

What the hell?! 51st?!

20 The Ex

Just voting for this because it is WAY too low. Amazing song at this is the true Billy Talent.

This is the first Billy Talent song that has ever caught my attention. I can't believe that it's not one of the top ten.V. V

I'm not a big fan of Billy talent, but this song is awesome. Nice guitar intro and meaningful lyrics.

The fact this song is at #28 makes me wanna cry. Such a solid song from the boys

21 Don't Count On the Wicked

How am I the first to add this song? Best song on Dead Silence and my favourite of all Billy Talent.

Awesome song, brilliant rhythm and lyrics.

Truly, an overlooked gem of Dead Silence. Definitely deserves more recognition. - DaRealXgen

22 Kingdom of Zod

Amazing song that really showcases their growth as a band, combining almost all of what makes them great in one single song!

My personal favourite, should be way more up, like 10 or something! A very good song and they were simply amazing when they performed it at Rock am Ring 2016!

Should Be In The top 10

Rob who? Definitely makes me think they wrote this song about the mayor of Toronto, the city the guys of but come from! Such a great powerful song about fake people!

23 Standing in the Rain

This song is absolutely amazing! The lyrics really paint the life of a lot of peoples suffering, it should totally be in the top ten.

Good melody and awesome lyrics

24 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.

25 This is Our War
26 Living in the Shadows

The quite "raw" sound of their first album is still what defines this band for me. This song is an outstanding example.

This song has been my favourite since I discovered them in 2002 and got their demo CD at a concert!

Probably the best but song. Major nostalgia too.

27 The Navy Song

In my opinion, this song showcases some of Ben's best vocal work out of any other Billy Talent song. With a catchy riff and an intense and emotional feel, it should certainly be at least on the top 10

How is this not in the top ten? One of the best songs I've ever heard! VOTE!

Great song along with the rest of the songs on this album can't believe the only ones up there are red flag and fallen leaves, they are good but so is this one

Honestly their best song, should be top 5 for sure. One of my favorite songs still today.

28 Crooked Minds

Best song off Dead Silence by far in my opinion, really strong riff and a lot of effort has been put into making this song, for me it easily cracks the top 10, if not, top 5

29 Dead Silence

Fantastic song! Should be number 1!

30 Surprise Surprise

Such a GREAT mix of the guitars and the drums!
Far, one of the bests! Thumb it up!
Such GREAT lyrics also! Come on!

Best song of them! It should be in the top 10! Come on guys

Easily the best song off of dead silence, and in my opinion, also their best song

Three words:

Best. Song. Ever.

31 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?

Melody blows me 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..

Simply the best of Billy talent. You know I'm a big fan of but and just know all of their song (simply all) and this is their best and probably most underrated song. Also Cowered in Cowardice is great and unknown too

Simply an amazing song, one of their best, if not the best. Definitely it should be in top 5.

PROTECT THE HIVE FROM ENEMIES!

33 Perfect World

Perfect world should definitely top ten! Fast paced and the riffs are absolutely amazing, and add to that the crazy drums, it should be ranked up top ten.

Wow cannot believe this song was 33rd when I voted for it. This song could pump up a dead person... love it!

34 Swallowed Up by the Ocean

My favorite song from Dead Silence album. Absolutely fantastic.

The hidden gem from Dead silence, I'd put it in the top 5

35 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!

36 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".

37 Runnin' Across the Tracks

I can't believe this is not top 10. Very underrated. Amazing song.

Best song off their new album - thierryrs

Personally my favorite track

38 Afraid of Heights

great song

New album of 2016
This song is amazing listen it!

39 Cure for the Enemy

Great! My uncle died a few days ago because of cancer and this song helps me out of the bad situation we have at home! Thank you Billy Talent!

This is one of their top 5 songs in my opinion. It conveys an important message and offers a very original and highly emotional music.

Been a fan for over 10 years, loved many songs but this is a new peak!

Most underrated but song to date

40 Tears Into Wine

Tears into wine deserves to be in the top ten, its one of their best songs.

Moves me every time!

41 Burn the Evidence

One of billy talents best need to be in top 5

This song have good harmony
I like it

42 Cut the Curtains

Why this is so low on the list?
Such a powerful song, I really like it, and listen to it when I feel drepessed.
Even when I don't think it deserves 1 or top 5 I really think this awesome song should be higer in this list, at least top 10

WHY NOT NUMBER 1 STRONG SONG AND JUST AMAZING

As holes

43 Lies

Amazing song and chorus! Don't know why this wasn't a single!

44 Show Me the Way
45 The Crutch

Number 62?!

Number one in album
It hit the rock yeah!
For real rock fans

Awesome
Pitch perfect
Best song of this album
I love it!
Real rock fans!

46 Covered In Cowardice

Always gonna be my favourite song. Really makes you feel something special when you hear how brilliantly the lyrics and music mesh together. Absolute hidden gem from Billy Talent II

Ok,
This song isn't the best by them, but why is it so low? This song Is amazing

47 Big Red Gun Big Red Gun

Awesome Song nice guitar and genius chorus

Best song from the new album, which - in general - does not stand up to the high expectations and is quite disappointing.

Obviously best from Afraid of Heights. It has a good message great guitar work.

This song is good after afraid of heights and crutch

48 Pocketful of Dreams

Love it! Awesome lyrics. Beside Fallen Leaves it's my favorite Billy Talent song. The voice of Ben is absoluetly great!

49 Hanging by a Thread

Really? 40th place? People listen to this song it's FAN-TAS-TIC. Maybe not number one but top 10 certainly

50 Chasing the Sun

This song shows how mature but has become in song writing. Chasing The Sun is the very first song with a fingerstyle progression played throughout. But has definitely expanded their musical reach with this impressive addition to their repertoire. This song also has the most heartfelt lyrics, about the loss of a loved one, which is a concept that everyone can connect with. Overall a very great song. Great job Billy Talent!
