Best Hoobastank Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Reason

Great song with awesome lyrics! Touches the core of my heart every time I listen.. Moreover the song is Hoobastank's most commercially successful single.

"I've found a reason to show the side of me you didn't know." Not a typical love song, and proved it's excellence with it's amazing melody and shockingly beautiful lyrics.

It's a beautiful song with great lyrics... And very close 2 my heart.

Perfect song! - Userguy44

5 Same Direction

This song ROCKS, HARD. Watch the video it's quite good and follows from The Reason.

This song is crazy awesome, one of the songs from Test drive: Eve of destruction. Used to play that with my dad on ps2 so I have a lot of memories attached to that game and its track list. Out of control was on there too

Should be 2nd in the list

21 Right Before Your Eyes

Come on 24 now way

22 Inside of You

This one is so rock, that you can't stand while listening to it. It's just like Hoobastank own version of "You shook me all night long"

23 Don't Tell Me

The power in this song is immense, I mean not just the lyrics but the music too, the guitar solo, the guitar riffs, the screaming everything, should be in the top 3.

This song has a really great message. I think this song is totally about opposing bulls some politicians keep promising us, but actually the message is a reminder for everyone not just them. They deliver this in epic way, just listen! What I love from Hoobastank is they often write songs that remind us, not just about love stuffs

Such true message! Music and lyrics are both great.. One of the most addicting song from them.. I'm just speechless

24 Unaffected

I really like this song. If you're going through "stuff" in High School, you should really listen to this song. So relatable.

I didn't like the starting, but if Xcluding that, I love this song!

26 Born to Lead

This song is just thrilling and amazing... Deserves to be in top 10... Come on guys...!

27 Without a Fight

Should be in the top 10... this song kicks some pretty major ass. Should be in the top 5, personally think it's one of their best.

This is literally the best song by hoobastank
Should be in the top right next to out of control and the reason

Elite beat agents + this song = perfection

28 Sick of Hanging On

32 what? Good song should be top 10, and PES bring this song!

29 Is This the Day?
30 Look Where We Are
31 Remember Me

I love this song on the album because I was bullied my entire life and everything talked about is true now. Now, everyone claims to KNOW me when they NEVER knew me at all. Ironic how that works

This is on self titled, not the reason.

This is the best song they've ever done

32 Escape
33 Tears of Yesterday

This song is really relaxing even though its not a quiet song. I was really expecting this song to be in the top ten... Surprisingly not. Everyone should give this song a try, since its good from the start until the end.

34 This is Gonna Hurt

A very different song, but definitely one that deserves not be STRANDED AT 33rd! The chorus is to die for, give it a shot, you'll end up loving this song much more than the ones undeservedly listed above!

35 Good Enough
36 Incomplete

I love this song and it is one of my favorites all. And sometimes I have it stuck in my head. And I just really loved it. It is so amazing. Best song ever. Love you Hoobastank. You are the best

37 No Win Situation

This song is amazing! The instruments, the lyrics, the melody. Just amazing!

38 Can I Buy You a Drink?
39 End of Our Rope
40 Moving Forward
41 You're the One

Deserves to be higher than spot 36...

One of the catchiest songs I've ever heard, a lot of their higher songs are defenantly not as good as this one!

42 Say the Same

Lyrics... Reminds me of my good old days... Really heart song..
