Best Jimmy Eat World Songs

The Top Ten

The Middle The Middle Cover Art

This song has helped out so many people with their own problems, and it's catchy, the vocals are amazing, the guitar and solo are epic, and it's upbeat and will sure leave you listening for the entire song. One of the greatest pop punk songs of all time.

I used to be really unpopular at my school, but then I showed everyone this song and now I only get beaten up three times a week! Thank you Mr Jimmy Eat World (if that is your real name)!

First song I heard by them and had it memorized before I even knew the name of the band. Awesome

There was a time in the early part of the 2000s (2001) where so many good rock songs came out. And this song is one of them.

23 23 Cover Art

Seriously one of the greatest songs ever made. The only reason The Middle is number 1 is because it saw mainstream radio time back in 01. This song is a bit too long for the radio but it saved me.

The first time I heard this song, I made peace with guaranteed eventual death. It's not just the best Jimmy Eat World song, it's the most beautiful song of all time. There are others that are more fun, more catchy, more dancy, more experimental, but there are none this perfect in an indescribable way. This song can teach anyone to reflect on their life -- not many others can do that!

The Middle gets far too much credit as it is the bands most popular work. 23 is the finest song that Jimmy Eat World has created in all aspects. The songwriting is utter perfection and it is executed beautifully. There are every few songs in this world that are this caliber of song. VOTE FOR IT

I am amazed with this song. I consider it the best song in my entire music library of all songs. This is a timeless masterpiece. The entire futures album is the best Jimmy Eat World album in their catalog and '23' holds water for many years, in my opinion.

Bleed American Bleed American Cover Art

This is what the top five on the list should look like:

1. The Middle
2. Pain
3. A Praise Chorus
4. Bleed American
5. Sweetness

Get it sorted please, this list is really messed up at the moment!

Brilliant song and even better album one of the only albums I can listen to all the way through without skipping a track.

This song is what got me into Jimmy Eat World. If only all of their songs were like this.

Jimmy Eat World should do a theme for a Sonic or Pokemon game. Because they are so badass.

Pain Pain Cover Art

This beats The middle! Pain always gets me in a good mood, just because it is so upbeat. Not to mention the cool 2nd verse. It takes my pain away!

This song hooks just anyone up aka this song rocks! It does take my pain away!

They best hard rock ever man! Also, this song in Smallville boils my nerves!

I'm baffled this is not at least top three this song flows so well

A Praise Chorus A Praise Chorus Cover Art

A seemingly simple song packing a fitting sentiment about the power of music. An all time favourite. Seeing Jew play it at a festival, squeezed right up the front, sun setting peach & purple, looking up at the sky shouting 'I wanna always feel like part of this was mine' was one of the most perfect moments of my life. Still gives me chills. Praise chorus indeed!

The first song I ever listened to by them. Absolutely amazing, and the best song I've heard by them. Sweetness comes in a close second, but this song really is just absolutely fantastic. 10 out of 10 recommend.

It's sad to see how little recognition this song gets, this is an excellent song. Give it a try. Top 3 for me.

Sweetness Sweetness Cover Art

I don't listen to Jimmy Eat World much anymore but this song still plays in my head every now and then. One of the most memorable songs of my childhood too

Awesome song, very different from their usual songs and just great drums guitar and lush vocals!

Not the first Jimmy Eat World song I heard but it is definitely the best!

This is the song that got me listening to Jimmy Eat World!

Kill Kill Cover Art

Great melody and awesome lyrics. For me "You kill me, you build me up but just to watch me break" is one of the best song lines I've ever heard. In my opinion their best song!

One of their first songs I ever heard and I have to admit: I fell in love with their music...

"I loved you and I should've said it, but tell me just what has it ever meant? " and I was sold.

If you've lived 20 years on this planet and aren't moved by this song, you may not be human.

Hear You Me Hear You Me Cover Art

A beautiful beautiful song. Really touches my heart every time I hear it. Jimmy Eat World has sung such a emotional and breathtaking song. I am very young but I am very fortunate I got to hear it.

Amazing song... I first heard it in the movie "The Butterfly Effect" and was instantly addicted to it... If you haven't heard of it yet then go and listen!

This song is so emotional! I know it's not for everybody but if you ever feel sad type it into YouTube!

I think it's a beautiful song, not only my top 10 Jimmy Eat World song but one of my top 10 songs period.

Get It Faster Get It Faster Cover Art

Get it faster is my favorite song by the band, however I'm a little sad that nothing from clarity made top ten.

Should definitely be higher!

Nothing Wrong Nothing Wrong Cover Art

This is such an underrated song. It's got so much energy and emotion.

The Contenders

Just Tonight Just Tonight Cover Art

Easily their best song along with bleed American, the lyrics of this song are about sex

Work Work Cover Art

This is a very, very nice song..
I really love it!
This guys really rock... They are one of the best emo band in the world...
And for me, this song proves it..

This and "Kill" are two of most well-formed pop songs I've ever heard, and they're back to back on the album. Talk about a double-header.

For Me This is Heaven For Me This is Heaven Cover Art

"For Me This is Heaven" sets Jimmy Eat World's most common tone through their entire existence since 99's Clarity album. Lyrically, the band is immaculate, with this song serving as a prime and pioneering example with lines like "The first star I see may not be a star" (see Konstantine by Something Corporate), and "Do you still feel the butterflies? Can you still hear the last goodbyes? ".

Closer Closer Cover Art
My Best Theory My Best Theory Cover Art

Great song.. Their first song that I heard and fell in love as soon as I heard it.. And its one of their best to.. I think it deserves to be in top 3..

All the rock songs type should be:
1-Pain
2-My Best Theory
3-Just Tonight

Polaris Polaris Cover Art

This song should definitely be at least under the top 10! It's such a amazing song. "I feel that when I'm old, I'll look at you and know: The world was beautiful." Please listen to this song, you won't regret it, I swear!

One of their beautiful ones. It deserves to be at least in the Top10. It has that magic sound that envolves other Futures's themes like Kill or 23. Trust me, Polaris deserves from your time those almost 5 minutes that it lasts

Amazing song but even more amazing in how the hell it isn't in the countdown

Love this song

If You Don't, Don't If You Don't, Don't Cover Art

Always makes me happy

Big Casino Big Casino Cover Art

The raw energy of this song makes it the third in a row for perfect energetic openers of a Jew album (after Bleed American and Futures).

Amazing song, good sound by band and amazing vocals. Jimmy eat world never fail to impress.

Lucky Denver Mint Lucky Denver Mint Cover Art

The only option from clarity on this list! That's truly shameful, Jimmy Eat Worlds best album and easily one of the most inspirational albums of all time!

How is this so low? This is top 5 song for sure!

This should be top 2 between it and 23.

Disintegration Disintegration Cover Art

The layers of sound in the song are so amazing, and depressing tone of the song make it reminiscent of static prevails, almost even sounding like something Trent Reznor produced.

Unfortunately, this song never got the attention or recognition it deserved. Dark, deeply melodic, haunting and epic, this song should easily be in the top ten.

How is this not in the top 5, the music is great the chorus is great and of course the lyrics is the best part

Last Christmas Last Christmas Cover Art
Appreciation Appreciation Cover Art
Always Be Always Be Cover Art

I for sure thought this would be first on the list. This song was the second song I heard by Jimmy Eat World, the first being The Middle. This is the one that got me into the band! Its absolutely incredible.

Futures Futures Cover Art

A song with a serious case of underrated

Should be #1. Heavy, melodic, and a great riff... what more can you ask for...
