Top Ten Best Breaking Benjamin Songs
I was troubled in choosing which was my favorite, because in reality, I absolutely love all of their songs. They are so unique, full of not only the deepest meaning they can pour into writing, but also full of emotion that we can relate to every single day. I picked Diary Of Jane because it was the first song I fell truly in love with. Because of this song, I fell in love with this band and all of its songs. They create the very meaning of music... and life.
In general, I tend to disagree with the mob as to which BB songs are the best. I like Breath, Dear Agony, Blow me Away, I will not Bow, etc. But they are not the best.
However, The Diary of Jane is an exception to this trend. Popular opinion is correct in putting this at the top of the list. My top 5:
Diary of Jane
Give Me a Sign
Dance With the Devil
As opposed to itunes top 5:
Diary of Jane
I will not Bow
Until the End
Blow Me Away
It's not conforming or being a bandwagon to vote for this song as #1, it's just loving an awesome song.
It's funny, without taking away all of the musical qualities to this song, it's not even as though I'd call it their catchiest or best lyrical song, but like.. it's addicting!
I cannot make myself skip this song when my phone shuffles to it. Never. Does not get old.
Breaking benjamin has the best songs this world knows. But the song the should get the most credit on is diary of jane. Totally their best song. Diary of jane deserves first place. There are a lot of other good songs that are awesome. But none are even close to the diary of jane.
The guitar, bass, vocals, lyrics and drum beat blend together so well in this song and the final product is a beautifully produced and edited single. Starts off with a hard intro, into a soft moody verse and then comes a punctual, loud chorus. Bragging sticky, yet meaningful lyrics about a broken relationship, this is one of the best hard rock songs of the decade by a band that deserves far more credibility than it has ever had. Go BB!
... I love my girlfriend but we broke up. Its been six months until I saw her again but I see nothing in her eyes and without direct contact it just gets worst. Its hard to explain but I'm accepting it. I'm letting go but is does not mean I give up. Its just hard to breath and this song reminds me of what I am now and somehow raise me up and motivate me. I'm coming back when you need me even if your denying me now that's just how I love you and the actuality of the words we said to each others just hurts but I'm reminding you I love you j---l
This song is powerful. The singing is awesome, the music beautiful, the introduction unforgettable (and quite possibly Breaking Benjamin's best) and it gives you the strength to go and do what you want and not worry what others will think. BB forever
This song is the best songs I've heard from breaking Benjamin. This song is like my most favorite hate song.
The guitar, drums, bass blend in together so well, And Ben's voice, AMAZING. Especially for the scream in the bridge (my favorite part). This song should definitely be the #1 Breaking Benjamin song.
It's a very emotional song I really love it. Not just because of the lyrics and the melody, I can feel Ben's feelings when He was in the situation losing his grandfather. There are many musicians today who sing for money and leave the importance behind. What is important is the inspiration and the message the musicians bring. Breaking Benjamin brings the message into my life. This song brings huge inspiration and emotions into my life every time I hear it. It can actually make me cry even though I never experience someone dying in my life. It is because this song is alive.
Ok This is tough. I like the number one pick and the number two pick but this needs to be higher, I think this and breath should be top two. Here's my ranking
1. Give Me A Sign
3. Diary of Jane
4. So cold
5. I will not bow
6. Blow me away
7. Dear agony
9. Until the end
10. Either dance with the devil or polyamorous.
Absolutely legendary. The lyrics are the best I have seen in a song. More importantly the music and the song itself connects to you in a spiritual level. Better than The diary of Jane in my opinion however, however it still definitely deserves number 2
If you are suffering From Depression or frustration... Then this song tells your life Story... Breaking benjamin successfully combines rock and roll with agony and thus this masterpiece is created...
This song is one to be remembered forever, it's uplifting with its lyrics but also showing how dark life truly is, yet gives out hope and assures that "it's alright". No matter how "defenceless you really are" and how you think you know "how it will ends" and that there's no way out, this song picks you up and keeps singing to "give this another try" and fight until it's the end
Such an original sound to this song. This band is awesome. Heres the 15 top songs in order:
Diary of jane
I will not bow
Dance with the devil
Until the end
Give me a sign
Sooner or later
Blow me away
This song is sung perfectly and so many different well thought melodies are so well placed throughout. It's slow pace and remorseful mood sounds great really giving you something that stands out and you can enjoy effortlessly.
I just started listening to this band and this song literally gave me chills. I loved every moment of the song, it was a close call between So Cold and The Diary of Jane, but I had to vote for this one because it should be higher!
I think The Diary of Jane is the best Breaking Benjamin song, with I will not bow as a close second. It pans me to see this close to perfect song at fourth place. The scream at the beginning is chilling, and the guitar work on this song is just divine. I Will Not Bow deserves to be in the top two at all times.
This song should definitely be number 1! it gives me the feeling like they're going through pain and the lyrics express so much! they make you feel like you're actually experiencing what's going on, great job with this song Breaking Benjamin!
This is the BEST.
Definitely my favorite of all the Breaking Benjamin songs. I agree that this should be number one. Breath and Give Me a Sign are good, but not as good as I Will Not Bow.
This song has amazing guitar work. I love how in the middle of the song they stop singing, Ben screams, and they just go into a bomb ass hard guitar Solo. And the tag at the end is just the perfect way to end the song. This deserves more than No. 4.
This song is special... The lyrics flow smoothly, the guitar cries out in howling agony, together the two come together to form a sad, melodic piece. If you haven't listened to it, I strongly suggest you do, because this song will get you on your best days and nurture your soul with a relatable message on your low days. in my opinion, this song deserves to be #1 because it has something the rest don't.
"Dear Agony, just let go of me. Suffer slowly... Is this the way it's gotta be? Don't bury me, faceless enemy."
I think those words speak for themselves. A song us deeper individuals can appreciate.
This is just an amazing song. Simple as that. My friend said to me one time "Everyone has problems, you don't have to write a song about it" Let's just say we're not friends anymore" I think this song really describes how you would feel on your deathbed "I will fight for last breath, I will fight until the end"
Number 9? Seriously? I think this is one of the best songs by B.B. all about it is just perfect, I still remember the very first time I listened to it, I was so in love with it, its lyrics can describe a certain feelings that no other song can, I thank B.B. for this amazing and magical song that makes me cry almost every time!
This song is, in my opinion, the embodiment of agony and pain into song. It has a beautiful range, perfect atmosphere, outstanding vocals and leaves you with a true sense of self in regards to meaning. It makes you understand, simply put. I love this song dearly, and I would bet many others feel the same.
This song is pretty good. I wouldn't say the best BB song buts its not half bad. It should be a LEAST top 4. And I like the way Benjamin switches his voice. It makes me feels like I'm not the only one who can do that.
OK so I absolutely love this song. I think it's been underrated here. This song is my LULLABY! I mean, it's got great words, good music, and great transitions from one pitch to the next! My brother always told me, "Stay strong my Evil Angel." So granted, I have more of a "connection" to this song BUT STILL. It's amazing, and fabulous, and everyone should hear it! Without it being ruined by over play on the radio, of course.
The second and the third chorus are amazing. The way Benjamin manages to switch between harsh and soft (yet sharp) voice is not everyone can do. This ability is very rare. Another person who can manipulate his voice in this fashion is Chester Bennington.
Amazing Song, honestly under rated and most people havnt heard of it, In my opinion, keep it that way, the less people that hear it the better. A song this great shouldn't be ruined by over play through radio and the like, as so many songs today are!
Man this song got me through some tough and bad days in my life, and I'm in high school. This song made me feel like I'm not alone who feels like their a shadow of a man and nothing less, because you're always stepped on and told that you don't belong or that you won't accomplish anything in the world, this song is just so emotional and that is what music should always be.
Not to mention the part where Benjamin Burnley sings A shadow of a man I am nothing lwss I am holding on still, holding on.
I always feel like I'm holding on and can never get back tito the surface to live a true happy life.
And that was the message Benjamin Burnley was trying to adress I think.
This album was actually the first album I bought by Breaking Benjamin
When I heard they broke up I was so depressed, I'm still have not got over it though.
WHAT! ARE you KIDDINg' ME! Until the end, breath and other songs are on the top 10 but not one of the best songs I've heard. This is unacceptable! Here's my top 5 list for the songs I've heard:
1. So Cold
3. Had Enough
4. Diary of Jane(too rushed and fast paced in my opinion but certainly very good)
5. I will not bow
I haven't listened to some of the songs though but this certainly does not deserve to be not among the top 3!
The first time I heard this I thought it was nice...
The next time I thought it was good... Then "Oooh My God... "
This is one of those songs which you will never get tired of.
It is so inspiring that it gives you goosepimples...!
Don't mind the ratings because there are so many good songs and only 10 can
Make it to the top 10. So this can be as good as #1.
What the heck is this list!? Who votes here? Little girls? This is easily the best song on Dear Agony and Fade Away should be much higher too. What are songs like Evil Angel, Without You, Anthem Of The Angels etc doing ahead of these!? Get it right people!
An amazing song. I was scrolling through here and found dance with the devil and tried the sample. Then I heard the whole song and I adored it. This song to be no lower than number 3
9?! Why the hell is this on the 9th spot?! Come on people this is an awesome song give it a chance! This song is the reason I come to love Breaking Benjamin! The lyrics are amazing! It expresses a lot!
'Say goodbye as we dance with the devil tonight, Don't you dare look at him in the eye'...
Even just by looking at the title this should be number one its an EPIC song! VOTE!
This is just such an emotional song! I love it! The way they sing it lets you know that they understand what they're singing and isn't just singing it for fun. They're singing it from the heart. And the way their voices are projected. They made this song THAT amazing. They're better than Justin Bieber and One Direction.
Dance with the Devil... It's just epic. The lyrics, the beat, it's just perfect. But what really gets me is Benjamins voice in this song: there's something really special about it, something that makes this song so much better than the rest.. I cannot even comrehend why it's only number 8 :/ It should be AT LEAST in the top 3
Blow Me Away is my favorite BB song ever. It's guitar part is amazing, and so is the vocals. I started liking it so much when I first started playing Halo 2 and I haven't liked it even a little bit less since then. I honestly think this should be their number 1 song. In my opinion Diary Of Jane is good but not as good as Blow Me Away
There's no way any other song by BB could top this one. Amazing beat, phenomenal guitars, inspiring lyrics, this song has it all. It's one of the few songs that I could listen to over and over again without getting tired of it. Without a doubt Breaking Benjamin's best.
I listen to it nearly everyday. This amazing song was the first one I've heard from Breaking Benjamin. It appeared on the "Halo 2 Original Soundtrack" and that's how I discovered this and one of the greatest bands I've ever heard of.
Best one that I have ever heard... I heard of Breaking Benjamin from a friend and now I am addicted because of this song I do not see why it is not closer to the top of the list. I really think that this song deserves a better spot.
This song was the first breaking Benjamin song I ever heard. I love it! Only number 8?! Why so fail commissioner?!? My friend said Linkin park was awesome... I agreed
He also said Slipknot was awesome... I agreed
Hue also said Korn was awesome... I agreed
My friend said breaking Benjamin sucked... I punched him in the face
This song is not only great from an emotional standpoint, it's great from a technical standpoint. The switch from a minor to a major key during the chorus is the perfect release of tension built up during the verses. The interweaving contrapuntal melodies during the vocal breaks are phenomenal. It's just a great song
THIS IS THE BEST SONG EVER! It was the first song I ever heard from Breaking Benjamin. When I listened to this song, it made me realize that life doesn't give up on you, you give up on it. You have to keep going, it's not worth it to end your pain and cause others pain. This song gave me an optimistic perspective on life. It's so incredible how just a few words can make a difference in someone's life, which is why I love Breaking Benjamin and I will support them until the end (no pun intended)
This was the first song I ever heard by them many years ago! This song made me feel like I could do anything! The lyrics are great and its got the perfect mix of scream in it, and lets not forget that badass music in the background! This song definitely deserves top 5!
This is my favorite because of how badass it is. It's their most aggressive song. The guitar intro is just awesome and the lyrics are masterful. One of the best fighting songs ever in my opinion.
The pure aggressiveness of the music makes it seem purely raw emotion that's being woven into a song of pure anger. It brings forth a sense of anger and an emotion of 'bring it on'.
This is their heaviest song to date and most aggressive. I love how epic the intro is and the chorus is just amazing.
With all of the songs on Phobia that sucked (You, Until The End, Here We Are) this song was a blessing from heaven! Definitely one of Breaking Benjamin's best!
At first I thought Follow was my favorite song from Breaking Benjamin, but when I heard this song after a very long time not listening to it, I suddenly got goosebumps all over my body: its lyrics are moving like hell, and al the instruments make a perfect harmony that makes you think about the dearest people you have and, most of all, the ones that you lost... It keeps giving me this feeling even now. So glad I came to know this band thanks to my sister, and so glad a song like this has been made. I would vote for all of this band's songs, but unfortunately you can only vote one and once :P
This is my favorite Breaking Benjamin song. The way Ben Burnley's voice sounds in this particular song gives you a sense of depression and power. It's a lot like Dear Agony, except I prefer this because the vocals are more powerful and this song clicked with me more. I can't praise this song enough. Easily top 10 best songs I've ever heard.
Are you kidding me? I thought this song would be top 3. This is outrageous. The poetry in this song is absolutely sublime. Seriously, go listen to the acoustic version and Ben's heart and soul is even more present in the lyrics. Just... Listen to it... Soak it in. It's seriously sublime.
My top ten, in no particular order:
Into the Nothing
Blow Me Away
I will not bow
What Lies Beneath
Until the End
Who wants to live forever
These guys are awesome, too bad they had do die out.
Best Breaking Benjamin song.
I see you
'Cause you won't get out of my way
I hear you
'Cause you won't quit screaming my name
I feel you
'Cause you won't stop touching my skin
I need you
They're coming to take you away
Possibly the best chorus I have ever heard. Why is this not in the top ten?!
I can't believe this is right at the BOTTOM of the entire LIST! What the heck! Listen to this song people then come here and VOTE!
I can't believe how this song is not in the top 10. I know that every Breaking Benjamin song really touches your heart but Diary Of Jane is too overrated and you can feel this song much more inside than you feel doj
I love this song. Its not the best but it should be at least top five! It touches my heart in a place not many songs do.
Well written song. It has a lot of meaning and seems exactly how a soldier fells. This is one of my favorite breaking benjamin songs. It is well written and has a lot of meaning to it
A very underrated song that is in my Top 5 favorite Breaking Benjamin songs along with songs like So Cold and Dear Agony. A very meaningful song
What!? This song is amazing should easily be in the top 10 amazing song from phobia same wit without you and anthem of the angels
How the hell did this song found it's way here? It should be in the top 5. It's awesome and really powerful!
Now this is a song that should have had an acoustic version. It is so emotional, the whole juxtaposition of someone being alive in your memory and being dead in reality and heart breaking. I though that the song should have been the slow but the electric guitar actually conveys the angst and the epic and complex journey people go through when somebody dies. I like the dark, cold, dormant and morbid imagery in the song. This song should easily be in the top 5. I love it when the bridge becomes softer and slower which really makes the words in the chorus stand out. Both the lyrics and the music fully convey and add more meaning to emotions and philosophy of life and death
You know, at first I thought it was gonna sound like any other sad song that didn't ever affect me, but just as soon as I turned it on, and that I listened, Well it all starts off as an epic, action-packed thriller song, and then it turns cold, dark and very, very, VERY, emotional. After the song ended, I REALLY broke into tears, and started crying, but only for a moment. This song actually means something than those other lousy ones. It is saying that when you love somebody like a father, mother or brother or sister, and even though you'll have to let that person go to be with God, they will always be there for you. I am now a HUGE fan of this song!
I will treasure it forever. And, another thing, every time I listen to this song, I would think that Larry Daley, Teddy Roosevelt, Ahkmenrah and Octavius are singing it to Jedediah, because he's dead.
When I sat with my Mother as she lay dying...my memories of the haunting melody and lyrics of this song gave me comfort. It helped to know the pain and agony of watching someone you love slip away to the other side is shared and survived by others. What a powerful tribute to the moments of life's end and the pain of loss. Breaking Benjamin...I was heartbroken when you disappeared from the music scene. I am so very happy you are BACK!. Ben you are truly a "Mozart" in this century!
This is the sort of song that brings tears to your eyes. It breaks your heart over and over again; when knowing the inevitable is upon you but not willing to accept it. Its glorious yet tragic at the same time.
Most of this band's album openers are insane. So Cold, The Diary of Jane, Failure, Feed the Wolf. All super good bangers. Fade Away is pretty good too but not on the level of those 4 incredible songs.
"The lead single from their new album 'Dark Before Dawn' is absolutely amazing. The sound of this band has matured without radically departing from the original one"
OBSESSED with this song. I have been in love with Breaking Benjamin's music for a long time, but this one is just fantastic.
Their newest song, rocks my brain out! I hope the new album will be good like this.
The ONLY possible reason this song is 17th and not in the top 5 is that people haven't heard the song. Brilliant intro, and perhaps the most powerful chorus I have ever heard, especially towards the end. It's tough to pinpoint my favourite BB song but this song takes the cake.
Easily one of BB's angriest, heaviest and boldest songs. The chorus is unabashedly fierce and is perhaps the best chorus by the band. And the end is simply sublime. All in all, this song is a real masterpiece that will no doubt reach the top 5 if people care to check it out.
Out of this world chorus! One of the best choruses ever made; so damn intense! Seriously, 19th for this insanely epic song is an insult to breaking benjamin. Need to get it higher, and get it fast!
This song is way underrated. Easily my favorite BB song. Between the chorus and instrumentals. This song motivates me and speaks to me. I heard it on a WWE Smackdown game as a kid and it's how I fell in love with Breaking Benjamin.
Their first single and the song that got me into Breaking Benjamin. If it was released after the success of We Are Not Alone it would probably be in the top 5 of this list.
I love this song. Its one of my favorites. I love like 11 of their songs, so its hard to choose just one.
Such raw lyrics, and good music and vocals. Beats any other hate song by this band.
What?!?!? Polyamorous at leather deserves number three! It's so catchy I never get tired of it!
Why can't people listen to good sings like this instead of the bad bubblegum pop and rap most teens and young adults listen to. This song is more meaningful than that stuff.
One of their new comeback songs. I feel that it is like the Give me a Sign song of this album whereas Failure is like I Will Not Bow.
Very underrated song, probably because it's more recent. I would say it's the best song on Dark Before Dawn personally but the whole album is great.
Come on this should be #1. This song has a strong message and great meaning and sounds like heaven!
THIS IS A MUST LISTEN. Not a very popular song, but trust me. If you love Diary of Jane, you will LOVE this song. Go to Youtube, and listen. Also, I have no clue why Crawl isn't on this top ten. It is just as good.
I agree with this last comment. Give me a sign and I will not Bow is overrated. But Breath is good.
Vote for this now. This is by far one of their best songs. Top 5 song right here. This song should replace Blow me away because that song is overrated.
What?! Number 19? How? This song is by FAR one of their greatest, alongside Diary Of Jane. You NEED to listen to this, I promise you won't regret it.
Oh rlly, I didn't expect this song to be so good when it's at 23th possition right now but... It absolutely shocked me, it's good, has catchy melody and cool growls (even though I don't actually like them) I just want to say.. Give this song a chance :) It desrves it and should have some higher placement
This song is so sad and deep the first time I heard it I cried. I think this song is about some person who messed or wanted to fight Benjamin Burnley and he expresses they way he feels about this ass.
This song should not be this low, you know a lot of songs are underrated and this song is one of them.
Thanks breaking benjamin for bringing a deep song that I think needed to be adressed to metal.
Awesome song, one of my favourites of BB. Really nice beginning with the guitar, followed by a build-up to the amazing chorus. On top of that, the second chorus is even more awesome than the first one.
It's really underrated guys, vote, vote, vote!
It's my favorite, sometimes it makes me cry. Other times it gives me strength. It really can be applied to my life. I guess its just sad that it is 20.
GUYS! SERIOUSLY?! This should at lest be in the top 3.. It's so perfect with the chorus the instrumentals and of course his voice! Come on lets vote to take this song where it belongs
The absolute beast of all Breaking Benjamin songs. Fade away sort of reminds me of how deep Simple Design felt first hearing it. I remember early days of Breaking Benjamin and hearing this randomly on my playlist, and could never stop thinking about it. It has the aspect to the chorus that really makes it memorable and undeniably epic!
I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH! Should be #1 not #5. The chorus is unmatchable and it just touches you in an amazing way! And it is so catchy! And the singer really put his all into this song to make it even better to listen to. Trust me, you'll be listening to this one day in and day out. Just download it and see for yourself.
What the hell this song must have really faded to end up all the way down here. This song Blows the roof!
My favourite Breaking Benjamin song ids actually "Firefly",but I voted for this one,because I think it's really underrated.It's a dark song about alcoholism that still manages to song cool and catchy
This song isn't just a comeback, it's the new best, The Dairy Of Jane, Dance With The Devil look like some ordinary pop songs compared to this. With Dark Before Dawn, the best album ever, comes a best song, Hollow has more sophisticated lyric and more dedepht, more emmotion than any other Ben's song. Vote for Hollow, for the first position!
This song is the definition of perfection. The creepiest, most beautiful piece of work they've ever done besides "Forget it" but that is a much slower song. The chorus and guitar solo are especially mesmerizing. Best song on Dark before Dawn and I can't wait for Ember!
It is best song from dark before dawn album...
It's totally breaking Benjamin style...
A head blasting song...
This is a top ten element...
Please vote guys...
Absolutely the best. Solo, chorus, double guitars. Vocals and the put together gives it an amazing song quality
This song should be in top 10. My top 10 is 1. So cold 2. Give me a sign 3. Dance with the devil 4. I will not bow 5. Breath 6. You fight me 7. Crawl 8. Had enough 9. In to the nothing 10. Evil angel
This is a very underrated song. And it's the best Breaking Benjamin song. Come on! Put this at #1!
This song really gets me amped up. Its easily one of their top ten songs.
Only 26!? This song should be in top 5!
