Best Crush 40 Songs

Crush 40 is a severely underrated band, so I put together this list.

The Top Ten

1 Live & Learn

It's basically their ultimate song, featured on "Sonic Adventure 2" and their title album. It's one of the most uplifting songs ever, and some of Johnny's best vocal output is on this song (for the band, at the least). It's the best song to ever be featured in a video game: No doubt. It also has Jun's best solo after Open Your Heart.

Too hard for me to choose, its between live and learn, I am all of me, and open your heart

2 I Am... All of Me

Ultimate heavy metal song. I heard it and I thought I was listening to Axel Rudi Pell. Too amazing, and shows Crush 40's versatility. Jun is amazing on lead.

This is just the best song ever! However they is a lost track what crush 40 wrote called broken and I love that even more its sad!

This is possibly the most badass sonic song and a very underrated rock song and fit the game well

The song is amazing. Actually, my favorite music gerne is Metal so I like this more than you guys probably.

3 What I’m Made Of...

Best song in Sonic Heroes, which already had a nice soundtrack to begin with! It suits the whole final battle and plot of the game. I felt so excited to finally hear this gem in action during the game itself! Makes a frustrating and rather boring boss battle ten times better.

The ultimate fighting song. Great vocals on Johnny's part, especially since the songs Crush 40 was making became more metal oriented at this point. Shows that Johnny is one of the best metal singers ever.

If I had a theme song, this would be it. What I'm Made Of totally fits the whole feel of the final battle in Sonic Heroes, and it brings out Johnny's vocals really well.
Best. Song. Ever.

TRY TO REACH INSIDE OF ME! TRY TO DRAIN MY ENERGY! LET ME SHOW YOU JUST
WHAT
I'M
MADE
OF!

4 Never Turn Back

This is probably Crush 40's most underrated song.

Seriously, this song BLOWS Live and Learn, Open your Heart and What I'm Made of OUT OF THE WATER.

Awesome song, on an overhated game.

Should be far higher

This song rapes Live and Learn and Open your heart, kills them then leaves them to rot in the streets before running them over repeatedly

5 Open Your Heart

This is one of their most important songs, because it defines the sound of Crush 40, being the first song recorded. Sonic Adventure is one of the greatest games in Sonic's history and this song is a gateway (literally) to Jun's ability as a sound engineer. It also has Jun's best ever solo.

Crush 40 does speed metal, and in my opinion, their very best

I like the song it is perfect song FOR me

First impressions mean a lot. And this song was an excellent way to make an impact. Personally my favorite due to Jun Senoue's guitar playing, not John Gioielli's best vocal work in my opinion but it's definitely up there

6 Live Life

I just love this song it got me teary first time listening to it

Wow, a Crush 40 song actually got me teary eyed!

When this played at the credits I literally burst into tears... Thank god no one was in the room. BRB playing SONIC AND THE BLACK KNIGHT AGAIN.

This song ALWAYS makes me cry I love ythis song a lot

7 Knight of the Wind

I really love violin playing in bits of this song, and the rest of it rules. Johnny's vocals are great, and I really like the lyrics. It's a great song for some big battle of some kind.

Just the best thing ever I mean the lyrics were cool but the guitar is just so cool. Its even great to play

How in the world has nobody suggested this song yet?!?! This song from Sonic & the Black Knight should be recognized as much as Open Your Heart or Live and Learn. The Celtic theme that Jun Senoue was trying to convey with this song is incredibly represented. Throw in some of Johnny Gioeli's strongest vocals and a incredibly catchy "Whoa-oh-oh..." intro that can be sung along to, and you have one kickass song! Even if you don't like Black Knight, at least the game gave us an absolutely incredible song from an amazing band. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

I LOVE THIS SONG ONE OF MY FAVORITES!

8 All Hail Shadow

Wow. I just voted this song and it went up 3 spaces.

All hail shadow the ultimate lord and savior.

Bow your heads low, All Hail Shadow

Simply the best

9 Sonic Heroes

Personally I feel that this song's really underrated.

While some of the lyrics have this narm charm behind it's still one of my personal favourite Sonic songs along with What I'm made of, Live and Learn and Open your heart.

10 His World

This song is a Zebra Head cover, but still, Crush 40 made it their own (who the heck is Zebra head? ). One of the bands most iconic songs.

His world original is better because of the components they put in there orchestra rock and fast "rock rap"

Zebrahead's Matty Lewis does the best version of His World, but no one seems to notice.

This song ultimately proves why Sonic songs are better than Mario songs. Tell me I'm wrong, I dare you.

The Contenders

11 I Belong With You

I don't think I've never heard of this song

This is not a crush 40 song

Yea best song ever

12 Watch Me Fly...

Thrill of the Feel is an underrated album, and watch me fly has some of Johnny's highest vocals in the bands history, and for once it's not about Sonic. Despite being a softer song, Jun created yet another memorable riff that sets the mood for the song.

13 Sonic Boom
14 Song of Hope

Finally, Jun and Johnny break away from the games with an EP, and this song is just brilliant. Perfect for those hurting, especially after the Japan tsunami. Amazing solo.

15 Seven Rings In Hand

Such a high energy tune! My favorite sonic game theme. Ironic, considering the original source.

This songs was amazing and cool.
And good luck.

16 Revvin' Up

This is one of the other songs that really defines the band, being one if their oldest songs. It's probably better than Open Your Heart in terms of showing what the band is really about. Amazing. The lyrics also go so well with the typecast songs (the Crush 40 songs that are in Sonic's shadow).

I LOVE THIS SONG WITH ALL MY HEART It's THE THRILL OF THE FEEL

17 Is It You

It's one of the crush 40 songs that got me a bit teary from listening to it the first time

Reminds me of my lost son every time

18 Escape from the City

Fantastic way to start off Sonic Adventure 2 and extremely upbeat my favourite Crush 40 song by far

Umm... this isn't Crush 40. I can see why you put this on the list though, as Jun Senoue composed it.

19 Sonic Youth

Too bad this band is in the shadow of a video game character. But this song is still amazing.

20 Free

DUDE THIS SONG IS THE BEST I don't KNOW WHY NO ONE HAS VOTED FOR THIS I LOVE THIS SONG I NEVER GET SICK OF THIS SONG I ALWAYS LISTEN TI THIS I'm FALLING FREE IN THE WIND FREE TO BE ME IN THE WIND WHAT WOULD IT FEEL LIKE... SORRY I WAS SINGING THIS awesome SONG I'm FALLING FREE FREE TO BE ME IN THE WIND

You should do your best to write the songs take your time.
I will do something to make a new songs for your self it in your dream come true it up to you.
Good luck.
I hope someone will like your songs it cool
Try your best to sings the songs longer tto them.

21 Fuel Me

Lyrics piss me off at first, but "on and on your time is a runnin out" is great, some of crush40s best.

22 2 Nights 2 Remember

This songs was cool.

NOT A CRUSH 40 SONG

23 Face to Faith

Really this song is underrated go and listen it. It s awesome

24 Into the Wind

Very uplifting song, even for one inspired by racing.

25 With Me
26 Fight the Knight

One of the best things about Sonic and the Black Knight! Good vocals, good sound, good lyrics, great execution. Awesome song in an okay game!

One of those songs that you can listen to over and over again and not get sick of it! It suits Sonic and the Black Knight really well!

I love this song and I NEVER get sick of this song Johnny Gioeli stiles again

27 Shadic Theme

This is a mix between live and learn and I am all of me so I suggest looking it up on YouTube
