2 Radioactive 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!

Yup, still good after five years! - KRX

3 It's Time 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.

I've mostly gave up on new music however I remembered of this song and some other imagine dragons songs and I remembered that not all new music is bad. However the fact that believer is in the top 10 is a disgrace. It sounds same to natural so much, and they were overplayed on the radio. However, this song I personally think is the best. Maybe not the most iconic, unlike radioactive and demons, however definitely worthy of third position

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.

This song is perfect. This song speaks to me. - Johnny15

"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.

Best Imagine Dragons song

6 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.

When me and the boys are drunk so we battle each other with blankets and brooms.

Currently my favorite Imagine Dragons song! This song deserves at least 5th place. Also, am I the only one who thinks that imagine dragons has an association with wings of fire?

Its good stuff

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!

Don't turn away now
greatest inspirational lyrics

8 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!

It's a inspiring song and their the best song writers.

9 Nothing Left to Say / Rocks

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

Nothing Left to Say is a blatant ripoff of pre-existing melodic riff from the song by "Cake - Frank Sinatra". Just listen to the riff easily heard from 2:54 to end and you will hear the exact same guitar instrumental. It's heard throughout the song but it's the predominant part of both songs and the reason why "nothing left to say" is so well written. Again, I don't care about the lyrics and I am only pointing out that the song is pretty much the same melody as the predecessor in almost every melodic stage, both by build, climax, and major riff. I still give the song a high mark because it's better than a lot of the majority of imagine dragons songs. - PrinceZarbon

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

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

10 On Top of the World

This song gets the award for catchy tune

The Ultimate feel good song

Love the lyrics, especially at the end!

The Contenders

11 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.

The beat is amazing!

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

12 Round and Round

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

The very first line man, its just so true.

It's so awesome :D

It's like a dream. It full of emotion and feeling, how someone is trying to find their purpose in life and not just go on the same old boring routine like most people do. Overall it screams "life is short. Live it to the fullest! "

13 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!

Definitely one of their better songs. It's not as good as Radioactictive, Demons, or It's Time, but it definitely deserves top 10.

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

I love this song! The beat is so powerful and it really moved me.

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 bet my life... Reminds me every time the second I met the love of my life.
Its deifnetely our song..
should be at least top 5. Amazing song, amazing performance.

This is so underrated! This song is so peppy and sad at the same time!

Definitely should be higher up on the list. One of my favorite songs.

15 Tiptoe

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

I loooveee this song! It's perfect!

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

16 Whatever It Takes

Another good radio pop jam 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

My personal favorite, though I understand why it is so low.

17 Gold

This is the best song by imagine dragons to me and I very carefully examined them thoroughly. I primarily judge the actual melody and musical verses as opposed to lyrics and this song has an amazing western feel with a touch of casino gambling action along with a sinister base verse that maintains true at a human level. It has the most engrossing riff and the most prominent crash of a climax. Every time the word "gold" is highlighted, it strikes true with perfect synchronized beat along with the background tune which never fails to climax and deliver the showdown impact that I always search for in a melody. Other songs I rank second to this are battle cry, roots, lost cause, nothing left to say, uptight, warriors, and believer. The large majority of the remainder of imagine dragons is dominated by a non-powerful soothing sounds that are radio friendly but don't leave a lasting impact nor have a memorable melody. Gold is a masterpiece achievement and rare to see such a hard-hitting ...more - PrinceZarbon

When everything you touch turns to gold - unknown-soldier

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.

catchy

I remember being addicted to this song I loved it so much it represented me.

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.

This should be at least number 10... I mean like come on guys

This was stuck in my head literally all day-- great song

19 Smoke and Mirrors

Great guitar. Great adrenaline. Great drums, bass and music. Especially the guitar. This song is alternative rock. The perfect genre

A beautiful song

I'm in dat kinda smoke and mirrors mood if ya know what I meen

This song explains my life... Really depressing, but I never thought someone will understand it

20 Roots

Not normally their best song but AMAZING live.

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

21 Natural

Natural is my favourite Imagine Dragons Songs of all times!
1. Natural
2.Believer
3.Demons
4.Radioactive

Natural is 1000 times better that polaroid

the best

Natural is 100o times better than polaroid, because everyone likes natural because it has such good beat and the song is awesome. Polaroid is boring.

22 Dream

This is one of my favorites song, the music and the lyrics are so powerful I'm surprised why this is not on the first place!

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

Why is that song so underrated? I mean maybe this is the most honest masterpiece of all time

23 Who We Are

I can't stoop listening to this awsemone song

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...

Yay

24 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!

Aaah just powerful and relates to everyone

25 I'm So Sorry

Oh my, just an amazing song, reminds me of Tord from Eddsworld. Always gives me good rock vibes, should be #2, and #1 should be machine!

As someone who doesn't like Imagine Dragons. This song is pretty good - Spiderman209942

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?!?!?!

26 I'll Make It Up to You

This is the only good Imagine Dragons song in my opinion. - PhoenixAura81

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

27 Friction

Why do so many people bash these guys they're amazing. Jesus Christ stop hating

Ya know this song has been in my head for a while, it got nice rhythm yeah that's for sure!
i can listen to this forever.. gets me pumped always
"CAN'T STOP DA FRICTION! SO>> EASE IT OFF CAN'T STOP DA FRICTION! SO>> EASE IT OFF"
yea
good stuff

Mission Impossible Fallout, Ghost Recon Wildlands, NBA 2K17, all used this song. - Not_A_Weeaboo

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

28 Underdog

I love this song! So catchy and it's really the "Underdog'! Heheheh... get it? Underdog? (I'm so corny) This should be in the top ten.

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.

29 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!

Why is this and I Don't Mind so low? I do not agree.

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

I couldn't decide between this, snoke and mirrors, round and round, my fault, well basically every song they are all amazing. I do have to say though, their newer songs are the best. evolve and origins were kinda disappointing to me. Smoke and mirrors and previous were, well GOLD. trying to imagine a better band is like trying to "Imagine Dragons"

31 Hopeless Opus

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.

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.

Hope ID put more guitar solos like this in their songs

How exactly is this song so low? The song, the lyrics, everything about this song is amazing

Should be in the top 10, but historically underrated. Great piece.

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

This song deserves to be so much higher on the charts! REe

34 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!

That's such an amazing song! Sounds really good and it's a songs you can listen to in whichever situation.

Well singed! My favorite song of Imagine dragons..!

36 Bad Liar

Sure they have much great songs but I still think this one deserves the top 3 after radioactive and believer. Best song of 2019

Perfect paradise tearing at the seams. That line hits me so hard its unreal. It is describing how things can be great on the outside, while things are dying on the inside.
The song also has a similar meaning to Demons. He wants to be better, but he believes he's a monster.

One of the Best.

Pure poetry

2nd best song by imagine dragons, only below It Comes Back to You

"Heaven talks but not to me,
'Cause heaven knows nothing good comes free..." Seriously... People always say ', I LOVE IMAGINE DRAGONS, LIKE, THEY MADE DEMONS, ON TOP OF THE WORLD AND RADIOACTIVE... Right? ' Yeah, but did you LISTEN TO THEIR ALBUM!?

Caught my attention as I started playing. AMAZING SONG!

Listen to the first 5 seconds. Enough said

38 Digital
39 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.

Best song in the world

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

This is my favorite song! It's so catchy and every time I hear it I can't help but dance like a retard I just love it and more people need to hear it

41 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.

Such a shame to have such an amazing song down at 18... another masterpiece from the album Night Visions that deserves a whole lot of hearings and lauding of course...

44 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

45 Thief

I have such a good memories related with this song. It sounds so good!

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 :(

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

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.
