Best Coheed and Cambria Songs

The Top Ten

1 Welcome Home

This song is EPIC. If you haven't heard it, do yourself a favor and go have a listen. I mean, I always though coheed and cambria was an overrated band. After I heard this... my god, it left me speechless. I wanna see them live!

Very good.
I don't know much about coheed and cambria, but I think that this song will be a classic in about twenty years.
All of their other stuff wont be known much, but this will live on.

This was probably one of the first rock songs that I listened to and I was nearly hypnotized! This song is what got me hooked on the whole genre. I listened to it MANY years ago and to this day it is still one of my favorite songs.

Superb Riff

2 In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

Tons of great songs to choose from, but this one inspires, rocks, and frightens. It is intense and keeps you coming back for more.

One of Coheed and Cambria's longer tracks, it's definitely an unforgettable one, the always find myself listening to it in it's entirety.

This song is a masterpiece, by far my favourite, full of emotion and powerful moments!

Amazing! Raw talent.

3 A Favor House Atlantic

The best song they do in my opinion, I understand its more punk rock then Coheed's normal style, but it shows the extent of their musical prowess by going into a different style and being better then just about everyone else.

Ralph, PA

Best song ever made by coheed and cambria. How come pearl of the stars isn't on this list? I cry when I listen to that song. All of their songs ar

4 The Suffering

An amazing example of their earlier works, with powerful lyrics and a grooving rhythm throughout. By far the catchiest, most well rounded song. I would recommend this to anyone new to Coheed as part of the first five songs you should hear: The Suffering, The Crowing, In Keeping Secrets, The Hard Sell and The Broken. Refrain from listening to Welcome Home and A Favor House Atlantic until much later.

How the hell is this not number one this is there biggest song without a doubt. It's the only son that gets radio play.

Reminds me of going on vacation with my family. I played this song constantly. Good memories - Jonerman

Never gets old

5 Deranged

From the Batman Arkham city album you HAVE to listen to this before you vote trust me you'll think it's their BEST!

No matter how many times I have hears this song (A LOT by the way) I always recognise this as some of Coheed and Cambria's best work. Also, am I the only person who thinks ths reads almost like a suicide note from Joker to Batman?

6 Key Entity Extraction I: Domino the Destitute


This song is absolutely incredible. It changes pace so many times, but it still manages to keep that intense feeling throughout the almost 8 minute run time. And what an ending...

Amazing song, totally deserves to be in top 10!

7 Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry the Defiant

Even though Welcome Home is the best song, this gets my vote because of how amazing it really is

New song and I can't stand to not listen to it every day. Amazing song!

"Give them a fight that will open their eyes! "

Hangman hooded, softly swinging
Don't close the coffin yet, I'm alive
I'm alive

8 Mother Superior

This should be number ONE. People that say Welcome Home are the people that ONLY know that song. They have dozens of songs better. Every song off Second Stage Turbine Blade and In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3 is better.

This is honestly the best song ever written. The emotion that comes out of this song is breathtaking. Mother Superior is the best taste of Coheed that one can get. The way the song progresses and builds up to that last minute is amazing. Ever heard the crowd sing that last bit at a Coheed show? Amazing.

When I first heard this song, I knew right from the start that this would become my favorite song from Coheed and Cambria.

Welcome Home is and will probably always be my pick as the best, but I love this song. It is so good, everything from the beginning to the end. Especially the pre-chorus with that doom metal-ish guitar progression near the end of it, I love this song. I have only listened through Good Apollo Volume 1, The Afterman albums and TCBTS, so for all I know SST, IKSSE, NWFT and YOTBR might have amazing tracks that are a million times better, but so far my top ten list is
1. Welcome Home
2. Gravity's Union
3. Mother Superior
4. Tied between Ten Speed (Of God's Blood And Burial) and A Favor House Atlantic
5. The Audience
6. Peace To The Mountain
7. Key Entity Extraction II: Holly Wood the Cracked
8. Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry The Defiant
9. Tied between The Suffering, Key Entity Extraction III: Vic The Butcher and Key Entity Extraction I: Domino The Destitute
10. The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut

9 No World for Tomorrow

What?! Not even on the list! I love all of Coheed's songs, I can't specifically pick a favorite, but seriously, this song is incredible and so catchy!
Welcome Home is a brilliant song, and I praise it for giving Coheed and Cambria the attention and recognition they deserve, but believe me, it's not the best they have to offer.

10 Blood Red Summer

Easily a top 10, probably top 5 Coheed song!

Why did I do to deserve THIS? I mean, I'm so happy listening to this song :D, Love Coheed and Cambria!

The Contenders

11 The Broken

This is ROCK! More rock that the others! This is what puts the sun in the sky even if it's raining. Yeah man!

12 The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut

These douchebag fans wouldn't know a good song if it bend them over and banged them all night long!

This song should easily be in the top ten

Musicianship at it's absolute finest! This incredibly beautiful and powerful song moves me to tears with its breathtaking skill and seeing it performed live is a religious experience!

EASILY TOPS. this song is out of control off the chain bonkers from the first beat till 7 minutes after its over!

13 The Crowing

The Crowing is one of the greatest songs from the definitive album of the legendary band Coheed and Cambria. Instead of opting to follow the typical verse-chorus-verse song structure so often followed by bands, The Crowing does a couple simple verses and choruses, then changes direction completely, with a long bridge and interlude section, before heading into the minute and a half outro, complete with an insane breakdown, that makes the song the incredible piece of art that it is. Not to mention, it is one of the trickiest songs guitar-wise that Coheed has ever written. My personal favorite, along with IKSOSE:3

This was the pinnacle song for me. Prior to hearing The Crowing, I had only ever heard A Favor House Atlantic due to its popularity on MTV at the time it was released. I didn't look further into the band until I heard this song as the credit music to an animation I'd watched, and I immediately wanted to listen to more material. Not only is the song dynamic in its tone, ranging from calm melodies to the harder ending, the lyrics fit well to the story told in The Amory Wars of the events leading up to the name of the song. Claudio is a fantastic singer, and this song definitely showcases how well he can create harmonies. Off the Beat also made a fantastic A Capella rendition, which this song so well deserves.

AMAZING SONG! I'm a drummer and it's one of the few rock songs that I can really enjoy playing along with. I love how much thought went into this song. The drums are just so tasteful, and I love how complex the drums are without the song sounding like a big drum solo. I know this is definitely centered from the drummer's perpective, but that's what I am so...

Should be #3, this list is WAY off

14 Ten Speed (Of God's Blood and Burial)

Coheed does a lot of things very well, and sometimes their progressiveness get's lost on some people. However, I don't care who you are, if you are not tapping your foot and nodding your head by the end of this song, you must be deaf.

A Coheed song with rapid pacing, an awesome solo and a crazy, yet intriguing story. Arguably Coheed's best song in this type of structure!

I blast this song in my car every single day. Along with "Once Upon Your Dead Body" which isn't anywhere on this list? I'm outraged

so catchy

15 Here We are Juggernaut

Gotta put this one as my #1. This one in particular has so much bite and passion to it, definitely gets me so pumped when I hear it.

What an amazing song.

What?!? Coheed and cambria I probably one of the most best bands I know! Amasing music, breath taking meaning to their songs. But I was positive this would be nere the top! Oh we'll I gues it's just my opinion :P I'm also curious why the crowing isn't in the top 10

16 The Camper Velourium II: Backend of Forever

I love all of these guys' songs but for some reason out of all of them this one just always sticks with me the most. If it wasn't this, it'd be Wishing Well II.

I like this music because it's so very rock in roll

VERY UNDErrated SONG. Give it a listen the whole way through. iTunes previews don't do justice.

17 This Shattered Symphony
18 Time Consumer

Time consumer has the best intro serrated with raw emotions through the verses until the outro!

Best song, no doubt

I'm suprised it's so low

19 The Hard Sell

2nd coheed song I ever bought. Still remains to be one of my favourites.

20 Apollo I: The Writing Writer

Loved this song since I first heard it!

Thanks all for sharing the best songs :) Made my life easier by picking the best ones.

This song has probably the best chorus Coheed's ever written, and the guitar part is sick.

21 The Running Free

The only ones who didn't vote for this song are the ones who haven't heard it yet. So catchy and just all-around a great song.

I love this song, especially I love the base part!

Nhl 09 memorable song

22 The Velourium Camper III: Al the Killer
23 Guns of Summer
24 Cuts Marked in the March of Men
25 Willing Well I: Fuel for the Feeding End

A very complex song that makes the wait through some of the samey stuff in the middle of the album worthwhile.

26 Wake Up

This is one of those songs that is fantastic and has deep moods. VOTE!

WHY IS THIS DOWN HERE! Wake up is an epic piece of theirs and shows their true musical abilities by performing almost a ballad :) luvz coheed

My second favorite C and C song behind Welcome home, should be much higher up

27 Neverender
28 Gravity's Union

Quite possibly the best song of the Aftermath duo and one of their strongest across all their albums. The choruses are both big and bold giving of a cinematic feeling not felt in any of their previous releases. Although the guitar work isn't as crazy as many of Coheed's more bombastic tunes there's enough in it to give of a dynamic feel without detracting from the power of the climactic end chorus.

They got me into their music with this one, it's clearly the best in my opinion, I wonder why it's not much higher in this top.


"Caged! Locked in perpetual motion..."
This song builds and builds and rewards with an unforgettable ending chorus. Needs to be MUCH higher on this list.

29 Three Evils (Embodied in Love and Shadow)

For being a coheed fan for YEARS, this is honestly one of their best songs! It's so underrated, give it a listen. The harmonies are incredible.

How this is all the way down in 42nd is beyond me. It's like a better version of The Suffering

30 Pearl of the Stars

Glad to see that I'm not the only one who believes this song is really underrated, this song is really good and deep, give it a chance, you won't regret...

Most underrated song by Coheed, so much emotion in one song

This should be in the top 10. Too much feels

31 Feathers

Love this song! Wake up is without a doubt number one for me though.

32 The Light & the Glass

This should be higher, have any of you heard the ending?

"Pray for us all"

One of the most emotional lines they have.

33 Dark Side of Me

By far an emotional masterpiece, I love every second of this... My number one for sure

This song elicited emotions from me that songs normally can't do - #1 for me.

34 The End Complete: I, II, III, IV & V

Such a great ending to the saga.

35 Devil in Jersey City

Amazing song - shabuti. Love Josephine, sorry to see her go in the following song :(

36 2113
37 33

Voted so this becomes no33 on the list ;P

How is 33, 34?

38 Number City

This song should be top 5... Not sure why it's down here...

39 Delirium Trigger

What why is this one down here?

This list is out of order.

Their best song.

By far their best work. SSTB blows welcome home out of the water. And this song is the best from SSTB. Fear through the eyes of madness should be higher. So should 2113.

40 Here to Mars
41 The Willing Well II: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness

This song has 10 bridges it doesn't get any better than this. The song continually gets cooler the farther you get into it.

Why the hell is this so far down?! This list is so misleading to potential Coheed fans!

I expected top 5 for this and the rest of the Willing Well to be up there too.

Why not in top 1-20? Great song,

42 Gravemakers & Gunslingers

The single most unrelenting & heavy song in Coheed's arsenal - c_cujo31

43 Made Out of Nothing (All that I Am)
44 The Afterman
45 Everything Evil

How is this not in the top ten? You people are crazy...

46 2's My Favorite 1
47 The Homecoming

Amazing demo on the first installment of The Afterman: Ascension Big Beige demos. Such a good song it shouldn't have been cut from the album. Amazing message.

48 Far

This song has so much emotion and it's conveyed so well through the vocals and even the distortion in the guitar. By far my favorite song.

50 Away We Go

Just buy this whole album. They're all so good.
