Great quote, Great Song
Trust me, you'll LOVE it!

I love Imagine Dragons! Their music flows so wonderful and it is about true things inside of you ( such as demons) It's so amazing the way they sing!

I love Imagine Dragons! The flow of the music makes you want to get up and dance! If you don't like this band what do you like? This band is one of the best I know!

Will always be my favorite - Camaro6

2 Radioactive

This song gives me goosebumps! I love how it has mild dubstep and an amazing beat! Favorite song of the summer.

Love this song! It just makes me want to dance. The beat is amazing!

THE BEST song of 2012. And part of, far and away, the best EP of 2012. Only song I could listen to repeatedly and still want to listen to more!

INCREDIBLE - Camaro6

3 It's Time

Best fun song ever, ever since I heard it, I've listened to it many times every day, and I really think it should be number one.

Good beat and melody

First song I ever heard from them! Let me tell you now, they are now my favorite band ever! I have to see them in concert! ( and I don't even go to concerts laugh out loud so that says something! ) Love this song and all of their music, you can relate to.

It’s the first hit and the best

4 Bleeding Out

So perfect... A lot like Radioactive but better!
This band has everything that I have been looking for in bands lately. They have a little bit of Coldplay, a little bit of One Republic, some Mumford & Sons and more. And this song shows it all off.

Not better than radioactive, the word is so meaning full in radioactive

So perfect! Oh gosh! I can't believe I discovered this band only now! THIS MUSIC IS SO "don't waste your life and enjoy it until you can"!

This is definitely their most underrated songs. Not as good as Radioactive, It's Time, and Demons, but definitely better than On Top of the World and Tiptoe.

The darkest Imagine Dragons song. Unique, yet perfect.

5 Monster

"If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me? " One of the best lyrics Imagine Dragons has ever written. This song is amazing. I don't understand why it isn't higher on the lists; people don't know it as well. Seriously...guys this song is amazing...you haven't lived til you've heard it.

The fact that this song is making it way to the top 3 is undeniable! It's full of emotions. The music and the lead singer's voice is just astonishing. GREAT JOB!

This song is hands down worthy of number 10 or better, listen to this before you vote for anything else. Seriously.

€�If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me? ” So good! - Camaro6

6 On Top of the World

This song gets the award for catchy tune

The Ultimate feel good song

This song is probably one of the best songs I have ever heard... LISTEN!

Super catchy! - Camaro6

7 Amsterdam

Got a great rhythm, some seriously good vocals that are full of emotion. The lyrics are absolutely brilliant. The word play between the singer and his mother, brother, and his (now ex) lover implies a despairing story without actually stating anything. On top of this abject disappointment is a strong message of hope that is only better because of the negativity that comes around it.

This song literally makes me feel like I'm in an alternate universe. It takes me somewhere that I could never go to before I found this song. The instrumentals are just amazing and the voice is so unique and just amazing. All in all, this is definitely my all-time favorite imagine dragons song.

I LOVE this song! I actually got it for free on itunes, which is how I started listening to Imagine Dragons, and it's still my favorite. You NEED to listen to this song!

This song just changed me. I didn't know what people liked it. I then looked it up on YouTube because a lot of YouTubers loved it. I then fell in love.

8 Warriors

This should be SO much higher on the list, at LEAST top 5. I can't stop listening to it! Probably their catchiest and most epic anthem. Best song I've heard in a long time.

Before I listened to Warriors, I didn't know what to do with my life. I heard about this song from my brother once. I decided to listen to it. From then on I never heard a better song. The only thing that might come close to this is Monster. I honestly think it should at least be #5 or higher. I do understand why there are songs that people think are better. Warriors just makes me feel optimistic even though there are a lot of happier and brighter songs. I mainly don't know why this amazing song makes me so happy.

Just for the first time I heard it, it was just the best song I have heard in a while and I keep listening to it never getting old! - The_AZNGM3R

This should be higher. Really good. - Camaro6

This song means so much to me! I love it so much!

10 Tiptoe

My favorite great if you just listen to each of the instruments. Especially the guitar. Unique lyrics to

Awesome song by Awesome band!

This song has been among my favorites for a long time. Although at first it was somewhat forgetable, now it's an amazing song, that I can't seem to stop listening to it. It has a nice, relaxing feel to it and I would have to recomend it to listen to. It's in the top 10 for a good reason :D

An amazing song, I mean every song from imagine dragons is pure 'Gold' but this song was just glued inside my head. Still think this song should be much higher up there.

Amazingly addictive, especially when the viola kicks in. The apocalypticness of it is so amazing, it makes me shiver. I LOVE the chorus! Can't believe it only got 2% - quatchi2

Just discovered this song, should definitely be higher, such a unique and catchy sound!

Can't believe this isn't in the top 10

Love this song but the only thing that would make it better is repeating the chorus just one more time. Other than that it’s just a great song with an operatic tone.

12 Ready Aim Fire

I never, ever thought the day would come when Imagine Dragons would write a song that could surpass the awesomeness of some of their classics; Such as Radioactive, It's Time, and Demons. Well, they did it! And that's what makes them the best band of all time!

When I first heard this song, it became the only song I listened for over a week and I'm not even exaggerating...it was so amazing I couldn't bear to listen to anything else until I knew every word by heart

Awesome song... Track of ironman 3... Imagine dragons rock... Love this song

For me this should be number one. Has anyone seen the one piece amv on youtube? It's so awesome! I love this song!

13 Believer

Absolutely sensational single just catapulted from the greatest of all the bands and my utmost favorite Imagine Dragons...that intensity, emotion, & sheer power gives me goosebumps every time I listen to and devour myself into this song...

Amazing and unique song! Destined to become a hit!

The most powerful song I have heard... this song gives me goosebumps... one of the best work of imagine dragons!

Incredible, especially the LNVS Remix. - Camaro6

14 I Bet My Life

Are you CRAZY?! This song deserves 1st place or at least 3rd place. The lyrics are well-thought and very touching when listening to the song. Plus, the background instrumental and the chorus especially just takes this song to even greater heights.

I really love the sound and also the lyrics of the song! Can never get tired of it so I don't really understand why its on 43.

I've been looking for this song everywhere! The only thing I could type into Google was so I I bet my life on you which had been stuck in my head and now I've found it! I love it so much! immediately smashes download button

Great song, any other word is just meaningless.
that's nearly perfect, addicted to I Bet My Life

15 Gold

This is easily my all time Imagine Dragons song, and believe me when I say that this band is my life. The song challenges the traditional ideas of achieving dreams of stardom by confronting the ugly truth of celebrity life and the loss of connection with normal society, communicating issues such as trust and greed in one hideously addictive and strange rock-heavy offering. The use of Dan Reynold and his band mates screaming and shouting throughout the song gives a certain and chilling tangibility to the real frustration of celebrity life and the issues it brings.

I'll always wonder how this song didn't make the top 5, I agree the top 5 is already taken by 5 amazing songs, but Gold deserves to be one of them, great beat, amazing lyrics, it really reflects the best of Imagine dragons

This song is sinister, strange, truthful, and in its own way very, very beautiful. This song deserves to be heard by the world. Don't ignore this song because it portrays a very real story and has amazing lyrics.

Undoubtedly has the best lyrics of any Imagine Dragons song

16 Battle Cry

Are you kidding me? This is an amazing song, it deserves more votes! Just listen to it, you won't regret it!

36? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE LIST? It deserve ti be the top. The beat is like crazy just listen to it. Also Transformer soundtrack.

This song is so amazing it should be number one, maybe because it's still very new, but still AWESOMENESS!

The beat is amazing!

17 Hear Me

Can't believe this isn't higher, best imagine dragons song!

At school, no one knows this song except me. It is so sad. This song is so in-depth, I can't help but listen to it over and over again all day. I love the lyrics and the music... especially the music. It's catchy and I think Hear Me deserves a chance to be number one someday. Please listen to it and you'll see what I mean. Vote for this song. You will make me eternally happy. Hear Me doesn't deserve 13th place, it deserves at least 5th.

Love the contrast between verse and chorus!

so god

I love you dan reynolds and I love the rest I have watched you ever cense I was 4 thank you for making very cool music keep it up guys please talk back to me and if you are seeing this right now I want to have tickets I want to watch you guys so bad you guys are one of the best bands I have ever known when I first heard you guys I told my mom who are these guys and she seed imagine dragons and I loved you guys I told her I want to be in that band one day and she seed some day.

I think this song is so low because people haven't heard of it. It is on Smoke and Mirrors. This is a catchy song, one of my favorites if not my favorite vote for this song.

In my opinion the best song from Smoke + Mirrors. The song is really catchy and the lyrics is good too. Deserves to be in the Top 10, at least.

Best Song in Smoke and Mirrors by far.

19 Roots

Acting as the perfect lead-in between Smoke + Mirrors and the future of the band, this song deals with how lead singer Dan Raynolds moved on from his depression (as represented within Smoke + Mirrors). Coupling that with a beat that would almost feel more in place with a hip-hop song, and yet feels more at home here, Roots is one of Imagine Dragons' all-time best!

Roots could possibly signal a new ID album in 2016, which we need desperately. From the Rap God-like piano in the beginning to Dan's excellent vocals to the bombastic drum. - WonkeyDude98

I broke the replay button while listening this song - One of the best... Sounds very good

Roots made it on this list.yay - 25SAL361

20 Who We Are

Great song shouldn't be so low, fits hunger games amazingly Y'ALL SHOULD VOTE FOR MORE THAN JUST DEMONS AND RADIOACTIVE!

Is it just me or is imagine dragons making a song for hunger games the best thing that has ever happened to my life...

My Favorite out of them, and I like most of there songs! Well.. Still this is my favorite. Shocking it's not in the top ten, or five...

To be honest this song is one of the greatest songs that they have made. Sure, it is not going to beat the multi-platinum hits; Demons and Radioactive, but should at least get to the Top Ten. Song is so powerful and really builds.

21 Fallen

I think this song should definitely be in one of the top 10, really this song is just so up beat, with a really good rhythm

Has great verses and a great chorus. This song definitely deserves to be top 5. It is one of my favorite songs of imagine dragons. Can't beat this song.

Undercover just like a candle in the wind - cameronhowardcousino

The beat and lyrics are so great...can never get sick of hearing it!

22 Whatever It Takes

Another brilliant song from Evolve not better than Believer but a country mile better than Thunder... - Arhaan95

Agreed. I like Thunder, but after a while the chorus gets annoying. - Camaro6

This song has an amazing tune and it is just beautiful.

Probably their best song EVER! This song deserved to be 1st Place! 1

LOVE this song, my all time favorite. Of course I really don't like any of their songs. I have a hard time picking just one favorite.

23 Dream

I don't understand why is this song so low and so underrated. I mean, this is the Demons of Smoke+Mirrors with a grandiose feeling in addition.

I follow them since their early beginning (I'm not like those who only know Radioactive) and Dream is simply the best song they made so far. So disappointed they didn't play it live.

Most of voting people only know their songs that went on radio but this one is the best ever, with such emotional voice, chorus, piano, violin and even drums. This was the only song to really catch me me when I listened to smoke+mirrors for the first time

Come on guys! This song should be number 1! The way he sings his heart out makes you wanna cry. "We all are living in a dream, but life ain't what it seems. oh, everything's a mess..."

I have a lot of favorites, but this one takes the cake. Dan sings with so much emotion in this song, and the lyrics really speak to me, because sometimes, everything is a mess.

24 Selene

Its actually called selene, with an e! But this has been my favorite song by them for months now, never gets old:) the beat is amazing!

This song is an older one, but definitely my favorite. I can listen to this song over and over, and it especially sounds great while driving. pretty sure I've been seen by like twenty drivers through the window getting really into this song

Selene is definitely my favorite song of theirs without a doubt, and trust me I have aLL of them! If you've never heard it you're missing out!

My joint favourite Imagine Dragons song (shared with Cover Up), extremely memorable and just great to listen to!

25 Underdog

This should be in the top ten. It's kind of like "On Top of the World" because of it's catchy beat. And I love whenever Imagine Dragons put catchy beats in their songs! But I love most of their songs honestly.

This song has such a great beat and catchy lyrics

The Underdog after all. You need to get used to it, but the lyrics are catchy and fun.

THIS MUST BE IN THE TOP 10. I AM SO SURPRISED; THIS SONG IS JUST AMAZING

26 My Fault

Amazing beat and great vocals. Definitely as good as Radioactive in my book.

This song is the best! The opening's a lot like 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' of Green Day, but as you listen to it, you find this one is better. Really awesome!

How is this not in the top ten? It's one of my favorites off the album- the idea that he wrote it for his wife when he was away one tour, not sure if it was his fault that they were both suffering under the distance- it's so original and romantic. Deserves so much more publicity!

This should be in the top #10 - psycho-

27 Every Night

Oh my... Why isn't this song in the top ten? It has like the catchiest beat and yet is so sad. It has a very different quality than their other songs. It makes me happy to listen to it. This is definitely of Imagine Dragons' best songs... Ever!

How is this song not higher?! This definitely one of Id's better songs. It has great lyrics, a great sound, and is just all together amazing. This is for sure on of my Favorite Imagine Dragons songs, and DESERVES to be higher.

Definitely should be higher on this list. It has a slight Coldplay sound and extraordinary meaning behind it.

Beautiful beautiful song, with such a catchy beat! Also the lyrics are very thoughtful and touching ❤️

28 Thunder

Good! This song...sorry Dragons but this song is just atrocious... repetitive, annoying and ear hurting.. devoid of Lyrics...just one word repeated 80 times throughout the song... I don't really get why there is some much of hype for this song and the hilarious part is that people call it the best song of 2017. - Arhaan95

I personally really like this song. It is not just rhythm but the meaning behind it. Listen to it and take it in. If you have any dream or goal YOU want to achieve, it is basically telling you to keep persisting. Just like Imagine Dragons wanted to create music and how they were the "lighting before the thunder". Very inspiring.

Such an awesome song! My body just starts dancing automatically whenever I listen to it. It gets a little embarrassing when in public but this song is hands down AWESOME

good song

30 I'm So Sorry

I can't quite comprehend how with such a brilliant debut album no one could even be bothered to check out there new album, it barely has 1000 listens per song (excluding the four singles) on the deluxe edition, this song is easily this albums bleeding out, a hidden gem!

This song is on a new level of music. It has everything you'd possibly want. EASY TOP 5 in the imagine dragons list. What an absolute amazing band, I don't think there is a song I don't like from them. Don't know how this is 34, someone wanna explain?!?!?!

Gotta be honest... This and Warriors are my favorite of their songs, I listen to them both after a crap day, and they really feel epic

This is one of the only decent songs that they've put out. Everything else has been below average or downright awful. - Pagepage21

31 Lost Cause

Relatable for going through depression etc. With lyrics like "Oh! Dig my shallow grave. But it's not me you'll save cause I'm a lost cause I'm a lost cause! ". It gives you chills and definitely needs more votes.

This is the saddest song I've heard in a while yet it's amazing

It's amazing. I could listen to it forever and it'd never get old.

Loved this song, and as soon as I listened, I loved it.

32 Tokyo

A catchy song that should really be on itunes. My friends and I are always singing it! Needs to be more well known, I am sure it would take the nation by storm!

It is as good as radioactive

The instrumentals really make you feel like you're in a downtown Asian metropolis

More like a futuristic Asian metropolis. Imagine Dragons truly is the best alternative rock band ever.

33 Working Man

I love imagine dragons

THis song ROCKS I love it. It is wonderful

A so, so, SO close second to Who We Are. Almost as good. Singing about the common "working man" trying to make a living. Not only did they make a good point, they also made an amazing song!

"Shake it, shake it
Moving again
Been a long time coming for the working man"

This song is a song that is so underrated and sounds a lot different to other imagine dragon songs but it's just so good

34 Mouth of the River Mouth of the River

One of my favorites. It's upbeat, and it's the kind of song that makes me sing along and dance.

35 Leave Me

This song is so awesome! I realize it doesn't compare to Radioactive and the other songs, but it's really good! Give it a listen, you won't be disappointed. I found this hidden gem on Pandora.

This really is a good song. Really catchy too..

36 Cover Up

How is this so low? I can't believe it! This is my favorite out of their older albums! It's so good! Take a listen you won't be disappointed.

"it was a long night, we ran along info the spotlight, you sang a song and made the children cry"

Ugh reminds me of me and my girlfriend

One of my favourite songs! In my opinion much better than radioactive!

This song is amazing, how is this not in top ten? Its super catchy

Unbelievably catchy, really upbeat, great rhythm... best Imagine Dragons song by far, whether it's the studio version or the acoustic.

It's too bad not many people know about this song. It's a great one. Very catchy and fun to listen to.

Too bad this song isn't very popular. It's very catchy and brilliant? - IsyTheElf101

Should be in the top ten. I don't know why songs from their first album are not so popular

Such a good song and their origin songs are almost/better than their new songs.

Great melody and lyrics.

Amazing song. Upbeat and fast, needs to be at least in the top ten.

I seriously can't believe this is not top 5. This is such a great piece. Just shows you how brilliant these guys are.

Music that sounds like going back to their very roots, and a meaning that makes me emotional each time

This song should be in top 3 for sure, great music, great lyrics and over-the-top emotions

Love this song so much, it’s a masterpiece ❣️

My current favorite song. I'm so sorry is very close but this song has such a chill cool vibe! It should be much higher on this list.

Love love love this song, way too underrated and the lyrics are so relatable

Why does nobody know about this song?! It has by far the best gitaur solo out of any ID song, and possibly the catchiest chorus ever! This song is amazing and criminally underrated.

Hope ID put more guitar solos like this in their songs

43 Look How Far We've Come

By far my absolute favorite song from them! Only downside... You can't find this song anywhere to buy. I highly recommend this song! I fell in love with it the first time I heard it!

Why is this so low? One of my favorites, like a mix between Amsterdam and On Top Of The World

44 Friction

Has an arabic touch and the tune makes you pumped up! Listen to it and trust me You'll love it!

How Imagine dragons turns noises into music? They are really awesome... Smks and mirrors album rocks... I wish this song might have a good video release also

This is the equivalent of radioactive on S+M. High energy pumping awesome song

Probably the 'edgiest' song from these guys; I love the bassline and the electric guitar near the end.

46 I'll Make It Up to You

My favorite song from EVOLVE this should be in the top 5. And wayne sermon kills the guitar every time!

47 Thief

This is only as low as it is because it's on the deluxe versions of smoke and mirrors and no one has ever heard of it. This song might not be the absolute best that they've made, but it is an amazing song and it's sad it didn't make it to the regular album.

This song is by far my favourite imagine dragons song from the beautiful vocals to the guitar riff this song deserves to a lot higher on the list in my opinion

My absolute favourite song! It is so great. What a pity that nearly nobody knows it :(

Best of imagine dragons rock Song

Oh, my goodnes! This should be up there with radioactive! Possibly best song in all of existence! Please listen to it! It's extremely passionate song!

This song is incredible! This would go to straight to number 1 if only people knew about it!

Easily their best song, but I can see why this is so low. This is from their second EP, before they were signed to a record label. This is hard to fing, and the only way I was able to listen to it was on YouTube. I just wish they would rerelease their first three EPs in one album.
