Top Ten Best Bush Songs


The Top Ten

1 Glycerine

Popular vote gets it right once again! Gavin is too pretty to completely get into in his more intense songs, but this one fits just right!

This is an awesome song! Gavin has awesome vocals, the lyrics in this song are just awesome the slow guitar riff fits the song perfectly! One of the best grunge songs ever - dragon13304

Saw the band last night I was impressed. Have not heard much of their music. I really enjoyed it

How the @$#! Is Little Things at #47 and this song (fine in its own right) is #1... If you were in school (High School / University) in the 90's then shame on you...

This song has stood the test of time in my opinion. There is depth to it without pretension.

This song and Letting The Cables Sleep should be #1 & #2 without a doubt.

4 Comedown

I think that this is their best song. Glycerine was popular but this was their best.

Amazing! My #1 go to Bush song!

This is song that will be sung for the rest of eternity. The great fans will never forget, but this is how everyone else will remember Bush.

This song is my Favorite Bush song. I can not wait until tomorrow when I will see them perform the song live. I have seen Bush four times since 97 and they always perform the best shows.

Great song. I love it very much.
It's one of those that you can listen to over and over again and never get sick of.
I listen to this song every morning when I wake up to get me up and ready to greet the day now, and I never grow tired of hearing it.
Great guitar on the intro as well, I might add.
Overall, most definitely worth listening to.

I just love it! This is awesome!! I love the music. It great the singer and the drums. I dodn't listen very much bush but it's a great band!!!!! - joaocarvalho

Awesome song. Using it as my wrestling them song. Awesome to get fired up and helps a lot for a good workout.

You'll never get tired of this song! It's absolutely amazing! My favourite bush song.

6 Everything Zen


One of or the best song from Bush, one of the best debut albums from a band ever!

This needs to be number 2 or 3

Bush's first and best song.

7 Cold Contagious

You will get yours!

The entire album is beautiful, still 20 years on it's phenomenally good, and this is the pick of the lot from it.

Great guitar, great drums... Their best off their best album.

Best Song on razorblade Suitcase

8 Greedy Fly

Grunge at its best. The rest of the album, Razorblade Suitcase, seems to be dry and stripped-down, but this song's got it.

Deserves to be at the top of this list. Creatively superior.

9 The Chemicals Between Us

It's just one of those songs that I'll remember for life. It makes me feel alive!

My absolute fave from Bush, this definitely belongs in the top 5

Love this song especially the riff

10 Superman

The Contenders

11 Letting the Cables Sleep

I don't know how this isn't first. I shiver when I listen to this.

I am shocked this isn't #1. I go to a different space when I hear this song

Love song SO much!

Best song ever made!

12 Little Things


WHAT!? Number 34? That is simply unacceptable! Deserves top 5 at least.
1. Comedown
2. Little Things
3. Warm Machine
4. The People That We Love
5. Swallowed - wolphert

This is not only Bush's best song but one of the best ever in Hard Rock industry

As much as I love songs like "Glycerine", "Comedown", and "Swallowed", this is definitely a top ten song, and probably top five, I had to vote for this, it is so good.

14 The Sound of Winter

Wow - this song was my anthem for 2012, an awesome life transition song. Sometimes taking a decade off from the band works out.

NHL 12 showed me this. Love this song.

Best NHL Soundtrack ever!
