Top 10 Best Chevelle Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Red

Love this song for its ability to express so much using a word choice that is relatable. This song expresses anger beyond one's control as well as the violence and the power of anger. Being emotionally controlled is an addicting and frightening feeling.

the emotion put into this song, makes it incredible. - tan9000

This is the best song because they won a place in the music for the red and they are recognize not only for this song I�'m sure off that but this is the one

It's not my favorite from Chevelle but it's a good song

2 Send the Pain Below

What the hell is going on this is there best song. the red and vitamin are are songs that you can sick of this you can listen to anytime seriously people you have to listen to this before you vote. it's there best piece of work they ever made just please listen to the full song and you'll see what I mean

This song rocks! To me its really soothing and just does wonders to my ears. It sounds like they put a lot of passion into this song. Not like they don't on their other songs, but this one has plenty of passion. Best part is that this song never gets old. I still listen to it often.

No competition folks! The emotions and feelings in this song are epic... the scream's nice, and the guitar, well, Chevelle never got their guitar riffs wrong!

Love this song! Listened to it a million times and always end up with a tear in my eye

3 Sleep Apnea

Without a doubt their best song ever. I listen to this on repeat and never get tired up. Gets me pumped up

Guitar riffs in the beginning pull me right in! Can listen to over and over again and still get chills. Brief pause after solo is a perfect lead-in to it's hardcore finish

Hands down the best Chevelle song ever...I've probably listened to it thousands of time, and it gets even better the more I listen to it

Hands down, their best song. Not even close

4 Vitamin R

The best chevelle song ever. Look at the lyrics dude! This is chevelle at its best. No wonder it made the top of the list! I notice sleep walking elite hasnt been added. Care to correct the deficit?

The opening riff is what draws you in but the song is strong until it ends

Wow I can't believe this is only number 3. It is probably my favorite songs. Just feel the lyrics rattling inside your brain. Love this song

Best of Chevelle

5 An Evening with el Diablo

This is the song I wake to on monday mornings, it literally leaves you PUMPED, by far one of chevelle's best

This should be #1 incredible heavy build up.

Awesome tune I can listen to over and over and not get bored with it.

Dat bass intro though... - OnyxDash

6 The Clincher

Not only is this Chevelle's best song, but it's one of the best rock songs ever. Send the Pain Below and The Red are ALMOST as good as this song, but The Clincher is Chevelle's masterpiece. The last minute and a half of the song is probably the best, a mixture between great, meaningful lyrics and screaming like no one else. The music video.. Well, I'll admit it, it sucked. But the song itself is amazing, and reccomended towards everybody who like rock, Christian rock, or just plain old good music! :-)

All chevelle songs are Great but this Has it All Heaviness Tool-Like Moments and Out of this world Riffs Great Background Vocals.

How is this song not in the top 5? This is one of the only songs I would keep repeating, it's that good! I'm a huge fan of Chevelle but this song is absolutely brilliant!

The more I listen to this song the more I love it, unlike The Red and Vitamin R. Also, Sleep Apnea is not #3

7 Jars

1 of my favorite songs by them.

Better than any of the songs above it with the possible exception of Sleep Apnea.

Amazingly good chorus, great lyrics and fantastic bass and guitar sounds

Really good song

8 Face to the Floor

Love this song! And great album also! Has that Queens of the Stone Age edge to it while still staying true to that awesome alt metal style. Get this to the Top 3 please! - OnyxDash

Nothing not to like about this song. My favorite Chevelle song ever. The song has it all.

Hands down best song on the list none of the other songs even compete

Been playing this about 15 times a day. These guys are so talented.

9 Letter from a Thief

"Letter From A Thief" is an amazing song, 10 out of 10 for sure. This is Chevelle at their best right here.

Dude Epic song! Master poetic genius that tricking Pete. A lot of the words hit the spot in this song its crazy. Definitely top 3!

"Best of Chevelle"... I don't know why its on 9. Video and the song.. I give 10 on 10.

At 3 minutes you get probably the best scream in any of Chevelle's songs.

So so very very good song

Petes best vocal performance

The Contenders

11 Forfeit

"... I want to fight, I want to fight, I want to prove I'm right... " well, I'll just say that these guys are amazing... This song is one of my favourites.

Listen to the drum beat that is insane

By far one of the best

12 I Get It

it truly demonstrates pete's singing abilities
its gonna stay for very long on my hot playlist;)

This song truly rocks. The tone of pete's voice is beautiful and intriguing. The bass is heavy and rippling. The emotion is there, and the scream is perfectly timed.

This song is true genius, any one claiming to like chevelle has to listen to this amazingly brilliant song!

Not only my favorite Chevelle song, but one of my favorite songs of all time.

13 Well Enough Alone

The scream in the first part it blows your mind and the guitar riff after oh $h! T the slow smooth blowing mind verses takes your breath away and the chorus All I could say is Oh My God why is this song in no. 8 this song is much better than vitamin r holy smokes guys I promise this song is the one you need

This should be the second song on the list!

Best song by Chevelle! SICKK! - OasisFeelsLove

14 Bend the Bracket
15 Comfortable Liar

If you're looking for the heaviest Chevelle song, then hands down this is it! One of their best songs if you like their heavier stuff.

This track is simply phenomenal and doesn't get enough pub.

This is by far one of my favorite songs by them its an amazing song and the lyrics are so good

The last 30 seconds...enough said

16 Closure

Chevelle is underrated, this song is even underrated, maybe what made their music good in the first place.

One of the first Chevelle songs I listened to along with Face to the Floor. Might listen to more in the future.

No matter how hard I try ( I don't even attempt), I can't stop listening to this song ( don't want to either).

I love this song. It's a strange eery sound that's awesome. So underrated.

17 Clones

I love all of Chevelle's songs but this is the one I can never get enough of, I smile every time it comes on. The bit just after the guitar solo when everything gets really quiet and then suddenly it all starts up again is just amazing. Pure skill.

Great ass song love it definitely one of my favorite songs next to well enough alone

Can listen to this song over and over. Love the riff and the vocals.

By far my favorite chevelle song of all time, the anthem to my life

V 1 Comment
18 Hats Off to the Bull

Should really be higher on the list. I love the album because of this song. Sure, face to the floor is a great song too, but this song tops it in my opinion.

This should be number one... Red was my first favorite Chevelle song, but this one takes the cake

Best Chevelle song, pretty heavy and very upbeat at the same time.

19 Shameful Metaphors

This song is so intensely beautiful, sad and mournful over loneliness yet also somewhat angry and hopeful. It builds beautifully up to the Shameful Metaphors part, the climax if you will. Seriously I love Chevelle and this song is 100 times better than their other stuff.

This is an amazing song really! It got me into chevelle.. I recently started listening to them.. 1 word: Amazing!

One of the first songs that got me interested in Chevelle, this should easily crack the top ten!

Wow, my favorite song did'nt even make the top ten. I have all their albums, but this songs get the most repeats. Honorable mention to " The Meddler, Well Enough Alone, and Hunter Eats Hunter".

20 Get Some

This song is amazing. I orgasm when I hear this song it's so damn good lol. So much better than most other songs ahead of it. I've noticed the One Ocean and Sleep Walking Elite aren't on the list

How is this song not higher? Some of chevelle's best work in my opinion and hard as hell! Maybe its not visceral enough for some but it kicks ass none the less!

This song is amazing! So energizing and Chevelle's hardest song probably. This song is really great and deserves to be higher

Dat breakdown 2 minutes in though...god, I love this band. - OnyxDash

21 Joyride (Omen)

How can a song be so sick and catchy? It's not fair, reminds me of Danzig's appeal! They are like the only band ever that can tour with Bush, Metallica, and Danzig on separate two band tickets! This says a lot about Chevelle! This one of the best songs and bands I've ever heard!

This song is great. It's hard to to decide if it's the best but I think it is.

Great bass line at the start. The best climb up of any Chevelle song, to the blissful climax of Pete's apoplectic scream *insert Pacha meme*. If Tool had a child of its own kind, this is it.

22 Breach Birth

A beautiful combination of melodic and heavy. Something Chevelle never ceases to do perfectly.

Most underrated song of the most underrated alternative rock band.

23 Still Running

I'm not sure why, but ever since I first listened to this song the first time all the way through, it kinda struck me. To this day, out of all of the music I listen to (which is a whole heckin' lot. I've listened to Gojira's Magma album over 40 hours to put this in perspective...), I have never had a song hit me quite like this. The way it hit me was not by the intensity, or anything like that really. Just knowing that some of Chevelle's best songs aren't even singles led me to dig deeper into their discography. And, after listening to literally every single Chevelle song, this is my favorite, hands down. - ThatoneMetalhead

Are you serious, #20 this song should be at least top 10 chevelle at their best... enough said

This is the song that god me interested in Chevelle

Great track

24 Family System

Would probably be higher if the very, very beginning of the song was harder, but it comes in HOT and HEAVY 20 seconds in. Everyone likes The Red for its anger feel, I get the same feeling from this song. "What a man's got he'll learn to hate" is probably my favorite line in any song - turnpikefan2017

This song is amazing! The guitar riff is awesome, definitely one of their heaviest. The screaming at the end is really intense. Should be way higher

This song is probably one of the most heaviest songs from Chevelle, including Forfeit and more. Deserves to be higher on the list.

This song is simply awesome. Somehow Hats Off To The Bull, Bend the Bracket, and I Get It are ahead of this song. And why isn’t Dos even in the top 80?!

25 Saferwaters

There aren't many songs that give me chills as intense as Saferwaters. This song has been my favorite Chevelle song ever since I first heard it. I can't believe that it is so low on the list.

I love this song so much. The lyrics and meaning is really deep. One of my all-time favorite songs ever. Great job Chevelle.

The best on Vena Sera, the best in the Dean era, possibly their best ever, and certainly underrated.

That intro just sucks me in every time. This is my all time favorite song. This song needs to be higher on the list.

26 Hunter Eats Hunter

This song is one that should be right at the top "that little creep just grab my arm" sends chills up my spine every time.."i am going out alone" the new Classic

Sounds like chevelle went into ultra-drive in this one, amazing rock song

I know this song is newer so it's not getting the love, but it's a great song

How is this song so down the list? Amazing tune

27 Take Out the Gunman

I love this song. Because it is new it has yet to rival the great Chevelle songs, but with time it will grow to become a classic.

Just listen to it, any one who love alt-metal or hard rock will love this - RustyNail

This song is not like any other song of theirs, and that really expresses their musical talent. This song is somewhat eerie and it rocks at the same time

Should be number 1

V 9 Comments
28 The Fad

And incredible tone, so fascinating and eerie, yet just enough to throw your emotions over the edge. Don't underestimate this song. Should be number one!

I can't believe this song isn't higher on the list. To me its #1. If you haven't heard this one you gotta check it out.

This song is so high-energy. Wakes me up and I can't help but have a grin when this song plays. In my opinion it should be top 5

One of their top 5 tunes in my opinion. This is one tune I want in my Ipod when I'm powerlifting!

29 Panic Prone

Definitely their best song. I'ts so emotional, and relatable to everyone, and is truly from the heart of Chevelle. I love it, it literally made me cry the first time I heard it

How is it not top ten! This song is one of their best songs, definitely number one for me. It carries strong emotions I think.

I'm surprised this song is so low down on the list. This song is awesome.

30 Wonder What's Next

Why isn't this song even ON the list? Should be at the top..

We play the blaming game...

31 Grab Thy Hand

Wow! This should be way higher on the list! If you like Chevelle heavy this should be your song! The best heavy riff Chevelle ever created!

The screaming in this song is AMAZING. My favorite song, hands down. The vocals are just too good.

32 Roswell's Spell

This one is my favorite of Chevelle. It's lyrics are beautiful and so deep, about what humans can find within themselves. Truly a journey of self discovery.

The verses' question-answer vocals & guitar is so aggressive and chilling. The "does anybody see anyone? " chorus gives me goosebumps every time.

I love the introspection that the song displays about looking out to the stars to determine if we really had visitors and then using that knowledge to determine our own position in the cosmos. It's so real.

One of my favorites! The lyrics are so deep and chilling. Pete's vocals are incredible, the entire song is beautiful start to finish.

33 Piñata

Come on... Easily has a great guitar riffs, yet creates catchy at the same time. The solo on 2:23 could possibly be the best of the band in my opinion.

34 Another Know It All

This song is amazing I can't believe it's so low on the list. It will always be my favourite Chevelle song.

I actually really love how heavy this song is. I don't know why it's so low on the list.

35 To Return

This song gives me the feels, it's so moving.

The song in a way expresses drug use. "The boy became a slave to use", "what's left of this child", "too many years". The child he speaks of is trying to return to his life before the drugs took him over, and the more he "burn[s] through the noose", it keeps tightening its grip. It's so moving in its own dark way

36 Midnight to Midnight
37 Humanoid

I'm a huge Chevelle fan. Almost psychological disorder status. But when I think really hard, Humanoid is probably my favorite song and is among many that. Make Vena Sera my favorite album. I have liked them since Point #1, and this song... Even two albums later still gives me goosebumps and sends waves of emotion. Surprised no one has voted for it at all!

How is this song not higher 50 is suprising this song got me into chevelle and one I could repeat over and over. Need to be in top 5

38 The Meddler

A thousand times better than Face to the Floor (which isn't even close to the best song off Hat's off to the bull let alone the 7th best chevelle song). The bass line in the verse beautifully builds up to the fantastic chorus.

A powerful and flawless song by them that should get a lot more credit. Definitely better than face to the floor.

Best Chevelle song I've heard. Really melodic and rhythm is catchy at the same time.

I agree, I enjoy this song more than Face to the Floor.

39 Fell Into Your Shoes

This is just purely amazing, that's all I have to say. I'm actually really surprised that this isn't in the top 10, never mind not being on here at all. Some of their best vocals and the music is calm yet energetic.

Why is this outside the top fifteen? I understand not as many people have heard it, but come on. It definitely shouldn't be in 39th. Pete's vocals are at their best here and I could listen to this all day.

40 Don't Fake This

Deserves a better stop really!

41 Straight Jacket Fashion

How is this NOT higher up?
It's my favorite song by them. Full of pure raw emotion and just amazing!

Deserves to be top 3 at least

This song should be top 3, if not number 1.

42 Fizgig

Underrated song but definitely one of their best

43 Mexican Sun

My personal favorite Chevelle song! Good riff and bass. The vocals, to me, fit the song very well and the song in general, when I first heard it, surprised me because it's unpredictable.

This song is really really good. The bridge section is my favorite minute in music I mean it is really amazing. This one's in my top 3 with Get Some and An Evening with El Diablo

This song is great. I started not liking it but as time goes I realized it kicks ass

It’s a swell song

44 Paint the Seconds

What! This song is way good, it doesn't deserve this spot

45 Envy

The main guitar in this song is simple yet beautiful, should be higher up on the list. One of my personal favorite songs by Chevelle.

46 Door to Door Cannibals

How tf is this 50! This song is awesome. Great vocals, but the guitar in the bridge section is just flat out incredible. Can't believe that The Red and Send the Pain Below r one and two. The only reason that those r the top two is because they're the most mainstream songs and not the favorites of a lot of die hard Chevelle fans. This should be in top 10

TOOL-like but awesome, grinding tune.

This song gets me hype as hell. I love the instrumentals.


47 Tug-O-War

Don't underestimate this. Great song!

48 Same Old Trip

This is such a great song. It's a pretty simple/straight-forward song and the way he hits those high notes are in the chorus is simply amazing. I'm surprised this is so low on the list, but I guess it's new.

Should be in the top ten

49 One Lonely Visitor
50 Saturdays

I feel like I am taking crazy pills. How is Saturdays not considered their best one... Why was it not on the radio!?

Don't feel so alien

Top 10 at least.
