Best Mayday Parade Songs

The Top Ten
Terrible Things Terrible Things Cover Art

This is the first song in my life that made me cry. Seriously there is no song in the world that is this tragic. I cannot not cry a gallon of tears every time I hear this. I'll remember to sing this song to my girlfriend when I turn 20 so she can remember the time we spent together listening to this song together when we were13. But I'm still afraid if I lose her I won't be able to sing it to her.

The first time I heard this song I literally sobbed my heart out. If anyone has ever lost anyone close to them they will understand it. The tears come when Derek sings: "Boy can I tell you a terrible thing? It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks" Quite possibly my favorite song in the world it is beautiful.

One of the most memorable songs of my life and one of the best too this shows me how to move on things I lost and this song should be in the number one spot I mean miserable at best is not bad but this is the real deal you can see the song empowering inside you when your sad so vote for this song and listen to it people!

This song has put me through so many tears, but it's amazing. It's almost like it's happy, joyful, and sad all together. I heard this song due to Clannad, a love anime which has so much to do with this song, almost a perfect fit. If you love animes, I definitely suggest watching Clannad to this song.

Miserable at Best Miserable at Best Cover Art

My boyfriend sent me this song when we broke up. I cried so much. The lyrics are so beautiful and the song really relates to me and him, specially since our relationship is long distance. Now we're back together and he sends me this song and tells me it reminds him of me because he says "I can live without you, but without you I'll be miserable at best." I love this song so much. The lyrics are so good...I seriously cry whenever I listen to this song.

The first time I saw them live I was doing me friend a favor after our other friend canceled. I didn't know any songs, but was instantly emotional after Derek have a speech about self harm and how things get better. They played this song after reducing everyone who wasn't already into piles of tears. Amazing song.

Definitely a top contender. It makes me think about my future and love life for some reason. It just puts this pit in my stomach (in a good way). I just want to bawl but for some reason I never can really bring myself to tears for anything. I definitely think this is rightfully in top 5

This is the first song I heard from them and it made me cry. Its just so beautiful with the piano and the lyrics are very meaningful and heartbreaking I want this type of song to be hear by my ears! Please vote mayday parade, you're the best!

Oh Well, Oh Well Oh Well, Oh Well Cover Art

Honestly this song should be at least on the top ten. It has great meaning and the music just draws you in. A lot of people can relate to it and it certainly helps you getting through break ups haha. This is by far one of Mayday Parade's best work.

AMAZING song, come on. It doesn't seem to be on the list yet! That's just wrong. Definitely my favourite song by them. Brilliant song with an ever more brilliant music video. Definitely should be up the top of the list

Oh Well, Oh Well is by far one of the BEST Mayday Parade songs out there. I love it. The song isn't just a song it's my addiction. Well, the band itself is my addiction! This song should at least be in the top three though.

This a great song, so touchy. I think this is the best from mayday parade. At least top ten
The lyric is meaningful
And the music is great
Keep rocking' mayday parade!

You Be the Anchor that Keeps My Feet on the Ground, I'll Be the Wings that Keep Your Heart in the Clouds You Be the Anchor that Keeps My Feet on the Ground, I'll Be the Wings that Keep Your Heart in the Clouds Cover Art

I think that this song is their best, everything about it is perfect in my eyes. The lyrics are meaningful and relatable, the vocals of Derek and Jason just work so well together and create a masterwork of amazing vocals/ lyrics. Not to mention the instruments compliment the song so well, not showcasing the bands skill necessarily but their ability to make a song simply beautiful.

This is my favorite song by Mayday Parade. Absolutely one of their best songs ever. One thorough listen can drastically change your entire mood.

This song is the greatest anthem I have ever heard, in my life. It is more in tune with emotions and love and intense feelings of worry.

Derek and Jason's voices are just pure beauty in this song. It's amazing and it's the song that made me fall in love with mayday!

Jamie All Over Jamie All Over Cover Art

I feel like I love Mayday Parade's slower songs such as Miserable at Best, but this upbeat song is brilliant and stands out from a lot of the slower ones (which can get a little monotonous after a while, as much as I love them). I love it and it definitely deserves to be higher up.

This song is one of their best and should be either in first place or at least in the top three with "Miserable at Best" and "Kids in Love! " Also check out the band Forever the Sickest Kids because you won't be disappointed.

This is the first song of theirs I ever heard, and it's without a doubt their best. Super catchy, super meaningful, it really deserves better than number ten.

This song is really good! Their new album comes out October Eighth 2013 and hopefully it will be as good as their previous albums.

I'd Hate to Be You When People Find Out What This Song is About I'd Hate to Be You When People Find Out What This Song is About Cover Art

Why 13? This is literally one of the best songs. Interpreted it like he loves her, but he can't stand his emotions. Which is not easy for him to just let go. Totally deserves to be no. 3 or something.

They've got plenty of great songs, but this one is definitely their best. I like many, many different kinds of music and artists, and this song is easily in my top 50, which I have in no order.

Absolutely amazing. The melody is very moving and powerful, should be at the top. This song was at the top of the top on my ipod for most of it's life.

Heard this song last night being played by my college band and it hit me right in the feels. It reminds me of my ex that have hurt me so much.

Stay Stay Cover Art

This is one of the best songs I have ever listened to. Being one of the earlier songs written by Mayday Parade, I believe that this one should definitely be in the top two. I love every song written by Mayday Parade, but this one has a powerful meaning, and its melody never ceases to catch my attention. Everything about this song is beautiful and inspirational.

My first mayday parade song I ever listened to (stay) is about someone attempting to leave another person who does not want them to... like begging not to. This is a song with a highly felt and often mesmerizing melody causing it to be one of my top 3 favorites all time by Mayday Parade because of the meaning of it emotionally.

I love this song. There are so much heartfelt lyrics in this that you could just tear up. I was crying uncontrollably when she told him not to even say hello to her. The buildup to the ending is the most intense part.

I relate to this song so much. The part where it goes "I'm not strong enough for the both of us. What was I supposed to do? You know I love you." gives me chills every time. The vocals are absolutely incredible!

Hold Onto Me Hold Onto Me Cover Art

This quickly became my favourite mayday parade song. Lyrically, it is absolutely beautiful, every word that is sung portrays so much emotion. It just has me in floods of tears every time I hear it, definitely desrves to be higher in this list.

This is one of the saddest songs of all time, and one of their best. The vocals are prime, and the lyrics are beautiful. Hold on to me, hold on to me, should have you sobbing.

This is an amazing song. I just love the lyrics and the beat. This song should be in the number 1 spot.

Lyrically speaking, I think is by far one of the best songs on their new cd.

Three Cheers for Five Years Three Cheers for Five Years Cover Art

The first time I heard this song I was in love. I could tell right away by the tune and lyrics that I had to hear more from this band. This is the song that made me fall in love with the band and it really makes me think about life. The lyrics make me mentally emotional (I don't usually cry or anything) and I gotta say it's low key but reallyyy good.

This is probably the best song of mayday parade in their best album/ep. I listened to most of their songs but this one is really amazing. With Jason's powerful voice combined with Derek's was just absolutely perfect.

This song has been my favorite song undoubtedly for the past 5 years, and probably many to come. I don't even understand why or what it does but it is simply amazing after so long.

I love this song so much; it's so beautiful a amazing! The first time I heard it-the acoustic version, that is, I was floored by how great it way. Personally, this is my number one.

Jersey Jersey Cover Art

Jersey was the song that got me into Mayday Parade. This song is so wonderful, the words, the notes, the style. Especially "you put the hook where it hurts the most" and "that lit the candle that set us all on fire, and sent a flame down the east coast". When this song gets in my head it stays there for weeks. I keep trying to find songs like it.

I absolutely love this song! Like how the lead singer says 'I am just gone beyond repair' like it is not a big deal that he is like that way. A very touching song indeed. My mom even yells at me because I play to loud! I believe this should be #1.

This song is just amazing and, the vocals, the lyrics everything! Deserves to be in the top 5! It's so relevant to me and many others! I can't even it's so good! If your reading this stop what your doing and listen to it!

It's just an overall great song, with the best vocals ever heard (or at least by me) in a Mayday Parade song. Plus the feelings behind the song make it so much better.

The Contenders
Angels Angels Cover Art

One of my absolute favorites. When my boyfriend and I broke up, I had this song on repeat for three days straight because they lyrics are just so powerful.

This song is just, wow. It gives me chills and feels every time I listen to it. Wow. Do yourselves a favor, and give it a try. One of Mayday's bests!

"Cause talking is cheap and your lies were expensive" need I say more?! This song is amazing. One of the best from monsters in the closet

Why isn't Angels on the top ten? This song is so emotional and catchy, absolutely my favorite one!

When I Get Home, You're So Dead When I Get Home, You're So Dead Cover Art

I love the overall attitude of this song, and it's so catchy, everything Mayday Parade is about. Terrible things isn't bad but Miserable at Best to me is just so whiny and a stereotypical overly emotional ballad. This song much better represents Mayday Parade and I personally think it's the best song they've made to date. Come on guys let's get this one to the top!

This song is absolutely AMAZING! It's my favorite song by Mayday. Every single part of it is just like pure poetry. The lyrics of this song hit me every single time I listen to it because they're so relatable. Basically, in my opinion, it's the best song to listen to when you're mad at a guy because you feel like you've been played.

Did she cancel on you at the last minute? Did she say things she didn't mean? Did you have to call a restaurant and cancel dinner reservations? Put this bad boy on and you're over her in a week.

Mayday Parade's music is usually all pianos and tears. This one is all guitars and cheers. They made a more upbeat song and they made it amazingly. They should really do things like this more often, though I do still love there normal songs just as much

Get Up Get Up Cover Art

I love this song; it is so upbeat and really great. I love how it is so fast and actually sounds happy, if you get my meaning. I absolutely love this song! !

Would be an amazing song to play at a concert! Great to get people on their feet and jump around and dance to.

Somebody that I Used to Know Somebody that I Used to Know Cover Art

This is such an amazing cover! 1,000,000,000x better than the original!

It's a beautiful cover!

Anywhere But Here

The first song I've heard of Mayday Parade, and now um researching on their songs. I absolutely LOVE this song so much, the chorus makes me feel so emotional though I don't know what kind of, it reminds me of my love and how much I miss him.

Not only the first that I heard from mayday, but its just catchy and has that real smooth feeling but at the same time that punk rock feel that makes you get up at the same time and sing along to it!

I had to put this song just because this was the first song that I listen to by mayday parade and it easily became one of my favorite bands.

This isn't the first Mayday Parade song I heard, but it's the one that got me hooked. I love the lyrics and the catchy guitar melody!

The Last Something that Meant Anything

Jason Lancaster's bridge makes this song slap so hard. He put so much into that vocal performance, and this one just doesn't get enough attention.

Best song of them. So underrated

Kids in Love Kids in Love Cover Art

This song is great! It really deserves at top 1! Why? Because higher voice, fast pop punk rock and I remember my awesome childhood. As fans of mayday parade, lee me share you a story of my childhood. I meet this girl Alexandra she's hot, very attractive women and great personality.

I meet this girl when I was 3rd grade. She was pretty hardcore always flirting by bullying. As a sensitive child I resented and get pissed at her. I asked her "why are you doing this to me? " and she kiss me and she said to me "I love because I hurt I keep hiding my true feelings for you". I was shocked that she like as the popular girl in school a soft spot for me... To make the short... We had great time play the swing, biking I drive and she goes to the back at the bike, sitting in a shaded tree and most of all exchanging food recipe. To be honest gents and girls I like her very much! When her parents decided to go other school. I was mad at her that she didn't have any courage to fight for me... ...more

I prefer the acoustic version. I just don't feel like Derek actually cares about the lyrics in the original. The acoustic version from the Valdosta EP is so, so much better.

Absolutely LOVE this song. First song I heard of them and I fell in love. I fell in love with a guy when I was 4th grade, at the age of 9. Here I am 7 years later at age 16 and I still love him. Hopefully I'll be wit him soon and for the rest of my life. Mayday Parade WORKS!

Truly the best song, it explains the mind of a teenager when they're in love. Even though that love usually never lasts it still is something you'll always remember.

I Swear This Time I Mean It I Swear This Time I Mean It Cover Art

Everything about the song is simple, they are not trying to prove a point about how talented they are like you see other artists do. This song is elegant and comes straight from the heart.

The voice is so raw and amazing, the song is just plain emotionaljabinkleliskey
Although it's a bit slower than some of their other songs, there's no denying that this is one of their best songs.
Seriously

This song has to be in the top 5 at least! The lyrics really get to you and the music is simply and totally in sync with the mood of the song.

This song is so simplistic, but it's so beautiful at the same time. This song deserves to be in the top ten.

Last Night for a Table for Two Last Night for a Table for Two Cover Art

I love how angry the song sounds at the start then it goes fast paced. Amazing song

This is by far the most underrated Mayday Parade song of all time.

This song is very under-rated.

Ocean and Atlantic

The lyrics are amazing and the beat is so catchy. Although it's one of Mayday Parade's less popular songs, it still deserves a ranking for its originality, chords, and lyrics! Definitely showcases what Mayday is capable of!

It's not the best, but it's super catchy and it should be a lot higher, good song So everyone should download it because it's great!

This is one of there best songs! 1) Kids In Love 2) Black Cat 3) Miserable at Best... What is wrong with this list?

I can honestly say that I'm in love with this song. Like, screw people, I'm 'gon go marry some music.

Sorry, Not Sorry Sorry, Not Sorry Cover Art

This song was just as good as any of the ones above. The desperation in the first verse until it came to the chorus where he felt self pity. Such a wonderful song. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

"And I'd lay down my coat, so you could walk all over it, just like you do me". Best part of the song by far. This song has a great unique sound to it that I just love

This song is so catchy, definitely deserves to be in top ten!

One of my favorites off of Monsters In The Closet

Bruised and Scarred Bruised and Scarred Cover Art

No way this can be so down... Such an ear worthy song... Pure epic kind of music... One of the most well composed song by mayday... Absolutely in love with its melody... Better listen it first and then vote... You will come to know what I m talking about...

This is the first song I heard from Mayday Parade, and instantly I fell in love. This is one of the best songs to listen to if you have just been through a breakup, and the music is just amazing.

The whole song is a masterpiece. The vocals are great (as usual), the music is incredible, and the intro is kind of epic.

I think this deserves to be higher.

This one deserves to be on the top ten list. It's one of the greatest songs ever written. Bruised and Scarred will forever be my favorite song.

If You Wanted a Song Written About You, All You Had to Do Was Ask If You Wanted a Song Written About You, All You Had to Do Was Ask Cover Art

One of my all time favorites! From the powerful "And I'm taking all your memories off the shelves, cause I don't need you or anybody else", to the calm, slow "Take me home, I'd rather die than be with you". Just makes me feel so independent and free.

This song is just simply amazing. If you're going through a break and now you're finally free, this should be the song you listen too. Its motivating, Not sad like most. I live because of this song

This is one of my favorite songs! When you listen to the lyrics and acually under stand there meaning it is a very strong and emotional song. One of the best with my opinion.

My friend died and this song got me through it. I cried to this song, I laughed to this song, I lived to this song. Best song by them easily.

If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet? If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet? Cover Art

This should be number 1 for sure, sick guitar, sick drums and sick vocals, this song really has a rock sound to it and should be number 1, it deserves to be on the hot 100 charts this song is their best song, better than miserable at best!

This song is unbelievably catchy you can't just not scream your heart out while listening to this song! Exquisite rhythm and their voice so powerful which adds much more meaning to the song

First song I've ever heard from Mayday Parade, easily one of the best songs I know. This should have been number one it just makes you want to scream your heart out!
