Best Mayday Parade Songs

The Top Ten

1 Terrible Things Terrible Things

Every time I listen to this song, I cry. I've never heard a more tear-jerking song in my life. This should be number one in my opinion, definitely. It's absolutely adorable.

Possibly the saddest and most emotional song they've sung or anyone has. So much raw emotion. Should be at least top 10.

First song that I've ever heard that made me cry the first time I heard it. This song is so sad and so amazingly beautiful at the same time.. Should be top 5

This is truly number one! Their best song yet, it has the saddest story and the most beautiful melody. Never really heard of a sadder or more beautiful song. HANDS DOWN. SO. MUCH. FEELS.

2 Miserable at Best Miserable at Best

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!

This song mad me more independent in myself, to look back at my mistakes and move forward. Thank you mayday parade. The lyrics are amazing and tell a beautiful/sad story.

One of the most powerful songs I've ever heard. Pure Magic. Deserves to be number one or two.

My most listened to song. I love this one more than anything else

3 Oh Well, Oh Well Oh Well, Oh Well

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.

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.

This song is so great because its relateable and solw and upbeat all rolled into one Love Mayday Parade! To be honest I Think 12 throgh 15 is the best

4 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

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.

I think this song is one of the best, and should get higher, like, this song has strong emotion and you should hear this, I really recommend yo

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!

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

5 Jamie All Over Jamie All Over

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.

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 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.

Acoustic is slightly better but the rock version is good and unlike the your song rock version it doesn't change the song ( because your song acoustic is by far better than the rock version)

6 Stay Stay

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.

This is my favorite song of this band.. This should really be number 1..

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.

The best song form is STAY by Mayday Parade

7 When I Get Home, You're So Dead When I Get Home, You're So Dead

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.

My favorite Mayday Parade song in the whole entire world. Never fails to put me in an fantastic mood! I love them so much! Never less the song!

Amazing. Period.

8 Three Cheers for Five Years Three Cheers for Five Years

Lord, where do I start. From beginning to end, this song is amazing. But the acoustic version instead of the album one. Simply amazing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is the song that started my obsession. I now have all the albums and I probably know every lyric to every song... This song is still my favourite though

10 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

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.

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.

No no no no no. this song should be number 1! The lyrics and the tune are so simple, but that's what makes it beautiful.

This song hits me so hard. definitely needs to be higher on this list!

11 I Swear This Time I Mean It I Swear This Time I Mean It

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.

I love how this song starts off it really pulls u in and makes you want to never stop listening I love music and this song really helps me remember what music is really about

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 is the BEST and I mean literally the BEST Mayday Parade song I've ever heard

13 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!

This song is perfect, that's all I have to say.

Best song ever.

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.

18 Bruised and Scarred Bruised and Scarred

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 should be in the top 3, it's catchy and punky!

19 Angels Angels

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!

20 Kids in Love Kids in Love

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 ...more

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.

This is DEFINITELY the best song! REally relatable, great beat and faster paced than most of their songs. Mayday Parade rocks.. I met them when they were doing a signing they're great guys

I love this song but the top 4 seem to be in order this needs top 5
