Just listening to this song and singing along to daughtry makes me feel so much better... THIS IS THE BEST BREAKUP SONG EVER. You should try it...

This song should be in number 1

7 Life After You

I don't care what the votes say; this needs to be at least in the top 3.

How come this song is at no.7. This is one of the best song from their album leave this town. VERY TALENTED LYRICS. Can't UNDERSTAND WHY NO ONE GAVE MUCH ATTENTION TOWARDS THIS SONG.

I adore this song! The most beautiful lyrics ever... And so relatable... And his voice is so good... It really deserves to be in the top 3!

We chose this song for our first dance at our wedding! My favorite among many!

8 Feels Like Tonight

Phenomenal cover of The Asphalt's "Tonight." Also some work made by musical geniuses Max Martin and Dr Luke; unmatched by any rockstar, dead or alive.

This is such a good song! IT deserves top 5, though!

Beautiful song

9 Call Your Name

I can't believe that this is on 11. This needs a lot of, lot of votes. Its one of my favourites by Daughtry.
I wonder if people go by the online ratings, or the popularity in their friend circles, probably this might become their favourite after listening to this.
For those who haven't heard of this song, I highly recommend you to do so.

It has an awesome start on the acoustic, has a piano which you'd love and a great ending on the guitar with Chris raising his voice and giving that force which he has in his voice.

I thought it should be in the podiums. I really love this song. This song has got soothing rhythm and perfect lyrics. I really get lost listening to the song and in-song transition is awesome! How can this be at 11!

I literally don't care about this song that much. It reminds of the Three Stooges movie. You know, Larry, Moe and Curly were fighting in that place, and Moe tells Larry and Curly he doesn't want to be bothered with them, anymore, and then they run off, and it looks as if Moe was singing the song, in Chris Daughtry's voice!
But. don't worry. It was just something I dreamed about.

I can't BELIEVE THIS IS'NT ON 1

10 Waiting for Superman

Amazing Song By Daughtry the Legends! Must get in in the top 3!

This song should so be in the top five pick. This song is sweet and sensual, like a light whisper of someone's thoughts. Plus the video is the best. That guy is some kind of angel. Love this song.

This is such a great song. I really like the chorus to song and the instrument in the chorus. I always sing this song when it come s on the radio. This is one of my favorite songs from current day and possibly by Daughtry.

Outside the box song

The Contenders

11 Crawling Back to You

Awesome song from their new album Break The Spell
Have you liked no surprise the 1st time
You'll Love it
Its released after long time
But it'll make to top 5, deserves it. - shouryat2b

Are you serious?! This should be in top 5! The best song the Daughtry's newest album; Break The Spell. The song is very addicting and the music just makes everything so perfect I can't stop repeating it again and again, I guess I'm obsessed

No. Just no. The first time I listened to this song, I cried because it was so wonderfully amazing. THIS IS NUMBER ONE. OR NUMBER TWO. OR NUMBER THREE. NOT ELEVEN. We'll never do this song justice by leaving it here.

This is the first song I hear from daughtry and make me fall in love with the voice and the band for same time

12 Start of Something Good

Damn! Start of something good is on the 17th?! This sing can uplift the pessimists and make them optimistic. Make it a start of something good. It is ought to be in the top 10 at least. It makes me jolly too. And am sure It will for the others too.

Daughtry is just Great. All his songs are like fantastic. He is my God ( in music. One of them, though). And I respect him a lot.

Guys, this must be no1. It says nothing wrong and it made me realise that I have to fight for love... 'Cause I've really been on top of the world and a clown... DAUGHTRY is the best band ever... I'm from Croatia, love ya

One meaningful song.. Lets start of something good

After 27 years, 2 friends reunited.
We realized that it is,
"The Start of Something Good"

13 Losing My Mind

The Best song by DAUGHTRY till date, although their album was not up to the level but this song nailed it...

In love with this song since I've heard it, just listen to it and you'll realize how top class song it is.

Amazing Lyrics, Beautiful Chorus, and of course world class music by daughtry, and the voice modulation by chris, just love it...

One day it will reach the top spot or at least top 3...

Unbeatable till date... - shouryat2b

Great song I would put this one in my top ten list, but I love all Daughtry songs so it would have to be a top 20 list, also Start of Something Good is a great song and Never Gonna fall Down in time these will be a top ten song in terms of Daughtry songs

"One part angel and one part danger but it's the kinda crazy I like, you got me losing my mind! "

So catchy- nice work, Daughtry!

This has to be No. 1. I don't know why it isn't. Just love this song from the moment I heard it.

14 Open Your Eyes

I love All Daughtry's song But I want to Help this Amazing song Out and get higher on this list!

Such Meaning to this song Sometimes We Do Need to Open Up Our Eyes and take a look around instead of being oblivious to whats really going on! - Curti2594

This song is beautiful... So beautiful.
If you listen closely, there's a story behind it. He tells the story of a woman who loses a man that she kept very close to her heart. And what happens at the end? Well... Go listen to it for yourself!

This song seems to have more meaning than the other songs. I like all the songs but this song has meaning.

A song with a beautiful and deep message. One of the most underrated songs by them

15 One Last Chance

Common guys... This song off the limits... I am not saying that it should on the top but this song have the capacity to be in the top ten list...
When I downloaded daughtry albums this song not included... Must be a deluxe edition piece...

One of my most played daughtry songs should definitely be in the top ten

Awesome lyrics! So give the song a chance to be heard by you (y)

Gives me chills every time. Relates to everything I'm going through..

16 Used To

The guitar riff in this song reminds me of Hoobastank's "The Reason". And for that this song is one of my favorites by them, especially the chorus!

Needed to be played on the radio it was so good

Are you kidding me!?... This is the best song by 'em!
Deserves to be way up there!

17 Learn My Lesson

Dude, this is like THE song of for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. I mean how can it be here? It should be number one, I mean its so meaning full! I listen to this song when I don't feel good and it just gives me sudden boost of energy!

Someone just stabbed me, twenty-three? Doesn't belong here. It's one of the best songs I have heard, it can give ' what about now a run for its money. Deserves to be, in the top three or five if one must.

It is better than the number one song on this list. Well that's what I think... But it doesn't really matter to me because I love this song.

One of the best ones

18 Maybe We're Already Gone

This song is so AWESOME! I can't believe it's a bonus track! It has a similar chilling vibe as "All These Lives."

One of their best extra tracks on any of their albums! Such a fiery rocker!

Not a bad song at all - Curti2594

19 Crashed

This is an amazing song. All his songs are amazing, I especially like this one! His voice is truly amazing. Daughtry forever! Great singer and great songs :o

This would be in my Top 10 songs. Love how the chorus just shouts in your face and brings you on a journey in just three short minutes!

Ugh! This song reminds me of that stupid Dark Shadows movie with Johnny Depp. I like the deeper version of this thing, better.

Let's breathe some breath into this song! Great hit!

21 Everything but Me

I think it's a really nice song, been bumping this for 4 years now

Deserve to be top 10

Emotional song (Y) Deserves to be even in top 5!

22 Broken Arrows

Totally under rated song from the new album Baptized. This song is epic. Must give it a try. Deserves to be on top 10. Come on guys vote up!

I gave it a try after looking at the list. Definitely one of the best works by Chris.

So different from so many songs of their's just so sweet and simple

Should be at least in top 20. This song got me the feels

23 Battleships

I don't care if I am the only one who votes for this song but it really deserves to be at least the top ten it is my favorite daughtry song and you will immediately fall in love with it. It reminds you of true love and learning to forgive and love again. You should really take about 5 minutes and listen to the whole song and I guarentee that you will fall in love with it. I know from personal experience

I've been listening to their music since about 2007 but they're a rare band in the sense that their music has gotten better over time from their initial albums. So why isn't as popular? I don't know, people are weird nowadays - they'd rather listen to trash like Minaj, Etc. And watch them shake their butts. This is real music. Waiting for Superman and Battleships are my favourites from them.

This is my favorite song ever because:

- A beautiful tune
- A good meaning
- A good song about love (not crap like others nowadays)
- Perfectly describes the years I had my first crush (a very long story)

This song is very underrated, and I demand it to be on the top ten!

The ones who haven't rated this song enough to be in the top tens at least, have simply not listened to this one apparently. Daughtry's music is real music. This kind of music is for grown ups. Incredibly under-rated.

Battleships is my ANTHEMM!

24 Break the Spell

I have the whole daughtry discography from self titled album to baptized, and listened to every song, but believe me, this one has best vocals, it gives me goose bumps, god bless chris daughtry.

Over time, this may have become my favorite track on that album! Love the whole build-up into the chorus. The part where it goes "the way you chew me in, the way you spit me out" is one of the catchiest lyrics they've ever written!

Its from a new album. It will definitely make it to at least top 5.

"what about now" definitely deserves to be on top..but this song on 26th? that's ridiculous.

25 Torches
26 Ghost of Me

This is another one of my favorite songs by Daughtry! Love the rocking tunes like this!

Dis is 1 of their best songs... Wats wrong with all you people

Such a great track by them, so underrated

The song which got me into this band...
Definitely.. 1 of their best songs. Vote for it m/

27 Tennessee Line

"I open my lungs to breathe in forgiveness and love
Haunting me now reminders of how I used to be
And on down the road my troubles are sure to follow
Looking out the window, the hell if know where I will go
So I'll just keep on driving"

When I lost all my music, this was the second Daughtry song I looked for. It deserves to be in top 10. Simply beautiful

This song is so good it really should have been released to the radio! Would've been a big hit for sure!

28 Long Live Rock & Roll

A touching tribute to rock music. Without guitars!

I enjoy the reminiscing of rock in this tune. My favorite one from Baptized!

I just love what Daughtry did in this song - Curti2594

29 What I Want

How could this song be on 14? This is their best song... Great solo, great beat... it is everithing great on this song... Daughtry ROCKS...
"What I Want is what I need" great chorus.

This song really pumps me up and is a great rock tune. This song features slash, the guitarist from Guns N' Roses. His guitar makes this song. It should have easily gotten well into the top ten.

Dude Slash just slays the guitar on this. Gotta be in my Top 10 songs by them!

30 You Don't Belong

Yeah, this makes me think about the old Three Stooges from the 1930s turning into werewolves. So scary.

Another great rocking song that deserves to be much higher up then this for sure!

So awesome in Concert! - Curti2594

Such a great rocker!

31 Renegade

One of the best songs the band's ever made
Should definitely be in the top 5
It's from their new album, so its low in the ratings
Listen to it and you would definitely vote for it
- shouryat2b

Hands down- this is my favorite. It has a good tune and it made me want to listen to it over and over.

Reminiscent of classic rock and roll, I think we all need a reminder right about now...

Another great one that should have been rated much higher than this!

32 Wild Heart

Wild Heart is a summer vibe song as is the rest of the albums. The lyrics pack a punch every time and leave you happy. Underrated album, underrated song, probably my favorite Daughtry song!

First comment... One of his best to date and its 51 :-O

33 The World We Knew

Take a listen because it's a good song! - Curti2594

34 Witness

This is my favorite song of all! Very inspirational and the acoustic version is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard! I don't understand why it wasn't released to radio stations!

Such a great song by Daughtry but still much behind...

35 All These Lives

this song should have made the list. it talked about kidnapping, "Posters hung on building walls
Of missing faces" "Months go by without the cause,
The clues, or traces" "They're gonna find you, just believe"

- alicia23

This reminds me of so many zombie movies or sometimes I find it just symbolic! Underrated track here!

Love this song it's my favorite from that album

This is my favorite. Just saying'.

36 There and Back Again

This is an amazing song! Needs to be in the top 10 at the very least in my opinion!

Wow! I can't believe this song is higher than this! Utterly Preposterous!

Agreed, this song is one of the more underrated tunes by them!

Backlash 2007 - s646451

37 Gone Too Soon

Amazing song, one of their best actually. Should be in a better rank for sure.

Love this song so much! It definitely should be much higher rating than this!

Great song.. Should definitely be in the top 10

Most amazing song. I wish it was in more of their sets!

38 Traffic Light

Many people call me the biggest fan of Chris Daughtry. I have heard every song he has ever sung since American Idol. But out of all songs, I want to vote this because it is a really good song and it deserves to be higher... Don't believe try listening yourself!

One of my favorite songs by him, it definitely deserves to be higher on the list. Daughtry makes great music and he's an amazing singer. Keep up the amazing work.

Love this song =]
Even more amazing in concert!
Saw them in columbus twice over the years =]

40 I'll Fight

This song is amazing! The lyrics has a beautiful meaning and this song truly inspires me:) It deserves a higher rank than 43! Its one of their best songs from their album Baptized!

Definitely deserves a higher rank than 42 in my opinion! One of their best songs from their new album "Baptized"!

EPIC song from Baptized

Listen to the lyrics they'll inspire you! - Curti2594

41 Gone

Love this song because it captures that feeling right at the beginning of a relationship ending, where you are taking inventory and not sure what the impact is going be yet.

42 Every Time You Turn Around

Amazing vocals, beat ad lyrics equate to a song that is able to blow my mind. Simple yet perfect.

Who rates these songs? I don't think they've listened to this one at all.

Awesome song! Whoever made this list HATES TRUE ROCK!
My Top 5:
5 Losing My Mind
4 It's Not Over
3 Gone Too Soon
2 Outta My Head
1 Every Time You Turn Around

43 Breakdown

This deserves to be much higher! One of the best build-up tracks they've ever done and that instrumental part kicks butt!

Fantastic song, can't belive it's rated that low, for me the best Daughtry song.

How could this song be missed? Love it endlessly.

Epic song! The instrumental part goes great with Twilight's battle with Tirek in mlp!

44 Baptized

45 Cinderella

One of their best song! Such sweet lyrics. Definitely deserves a higher rank

46 Rescue Me

This song has to be one of the best songs I have listened to. I am a big Daughtry fan, and I have followed him ever since he was on American Idol. This song just shows a lot of different ranges that he can hit, and the lyrics are perfect for anyone going through a tough time.

One of the best songs by Daughtry, can't believe it's not rated as first on the list. Amazing song, in love with it, I have it on repeat!

Another great and inspiring song that should have been a single in my opinion.

Love this song!

47 Outta My Mind

This is Daughtry's current most playing song. Don't you agree guys?

Chris has a hypnotizing voice!

50 Undefeated

Come on people this is one of my most fave songs off his latest album! - Curti2594
