Best Cage the Elephant Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Always Something

This right here is some top teir. I can understand maybe not top 5, but not even top 15? Come on ya'll.

22 Flow

Easy one of their best, I still remember the first time I heard this track finish and then the secret track start

This song comes on whenever you need it. It's a pretty song, and people deserve to see this side of Cage.

So good. Dreamy and melodic. Definitely one of their best.

Such a chill song

23 Mess Around

Great song, little black keys influenced but a great catchy song. Not the absolute greatest though, would place amongst top ten

Sounds exactly like the black keys. not very happy about that, nevertheless an okay song.

24 Doctor Doctor Doctor Help Me Help Me Help Me

This song is awesome. One of my favorites by them. Unique start off and super catchy!

25 James Brown

My mind was blown hearing this song, I swear. Why isn't this on the list yet?

26 Back Stabbin' Betty

This song is dope! And it has a good ending so even better

It is awesome. Hands down a head banger

27 Judas

This song is the definition of cte. The craziness and lyrics are what cage the elephant are-a wild druggie band who really do have meaningful meanings ad lyrics

Great bass play added in with an awesome beat with great lyrics. Awesome fast song!

Its such a wild ride its hard to believe its roughly 3 and a half minutes long.

28 Tiny Little Robots

One of the best fo sure

29 Cold Cold Cold

My favorite off of tell me I'm pretty.

Just great, awesome I mean

Great song. it's super catchy and is by far the best on there new album.

30 Sweetie Little Jean

I am a huge fan of Cage. I love all of their songs from the infamous Cigarette Daydreams to Come a Little Closer to Shake me Down to Telescope. But to me Sweetie Little Jean is by far the best song. For some reason it just speaks to me on a much deeper level than any other song (besides Telescope). My favorite line in this song is "has melancholy taken you for good? " Always will be a Cage fan and I have to see them in concert at some point.

So sad yet so good

Amazing song

Great song with awesome story. His vocals sound amazing! One of my favorites on the new album! Can't wait to see them in Frisco

31 Too Late to Say Goodbye

A masterpiece!

Their newer albums are underrated, of course, but to me Melophobia and Tell Me I'm Pretty stand above Cage the Elephant's debut and sophomore albums in an almost transcendent fashion, even if they're not as popular. Too Late to Say Goodbye is one of the best tracks either album has to offer, and certainly one of the best songs the band has ever come up with. Its lyrics convey a story of a tragic, dangerous, and painful love, which is symbolized by fire throughout the song. Can't we all relate to loving something that's bad for us? The song has so many layers and even aside from its lyrics, it's a masterpiece, with a powerful melody that emphasizes the danger of the Bonnie-and-Clyde-esque romance.

Other favorites of mine are pretty well represented (Shake Me Down, Come a Little Closer, Cigarette Daydreams, a few others), but Too Late to Say Goodbye gets my vote because of its lack of popularity which belies its incredible impact.

go up

32 It's Just Forever
33 Japanese Buffalo

Should be in top ten for sure!

34 2024

One of the best songs in Thank You, Happy Birthday. Not the best by far but deserves more attention.

One of the best pry #2 or 3 for me

35 Black Widow

This song deserves more recognition

36 How Are You True

I don't see how this isn't on the list! The story behind the song is so amazing, the meaning in the lyrics and how he shows the emotion in his voice really makes this song stand out to me. The chorus is especially heart-strumming, with the "you need love, you need love, you need love, you need la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-love." The ending part where the music in the background dies out and it focuses on his voice and the guitar is arguably the best part of the song. If I ever need a song that'll make me sad, I'll just look up this one because it always gets me. - nickynoo

37 Free Love
38 Sell Yourself
39 Sabertooth Tiger

Best song on this list! best band in this world! so raw and just heavy. I wish they were still that grungy. don't you agree

Seeing Cage the Elephant close with Sabertooth Tiger at the end of Firefly was just unbelievably awesome! Headbanging, screaming my heart out, and Matt crowd surfing was the perfect way to get ready for Modest Mouse.

All Cage the Elephant songs are great but this one should be #1

40 Indy Kidz

Get the right haircut! lmao
