Top 10 Best Metalcore Songs

The Top Ten

Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine Cover Art

The Most Awesome Song from the Most Awesome band. I really doubt the people who created this list listened to this song carefully. This is a ear candy for metalcore lovers. Sure it should be at the 1st spot.

It's useless to discuss about the best song ever. Anyone has its own favourites. But the bullet are the best at riffs and solos. Don't forget august burns red-meddler. A very melodic song

This songs got awesome vocals, awesome chorus, awesome guitar solo, awesome drums, awesome everything. The world needs song like this to make it a better place. This songs differentiates between true music lovers and the fake. Besides such creation is only possible by the best.

THE BEST SONG EVER, just started listening to metalcore but I'm in love for the rest of my life. The first song I heard was "Cries in Vain" also from bullet, kinda liked it so started listing more. Then I found this and now its on. Hope it will be #1 soon

Unholy Confessions - Avenged Sevenfold Unholy Confessions - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

Greatest Band of our time... When I heard this song the fist time, I knew they would be huge. Just look where they are know! This is not even the best song they've made!

Unholy confessions is one of the most best metalcore musics ever made, but, Avenged Sevenfold have done already better musics, like Second Hertbeat, the single Not Ready to Die or even God Hates Us, but, Crossroads is the best metalcore music ever made by Avenged Sevenfold!

This is totally better than tears don't fall, period. This is like the ultimate metalcore song ever!

What can I say... ? Well, I hate metalcore. It's kinda' strange. I can't listen to Bring me the Horizon or Asking Alexandria or Trivium, but Avenged Sevenfold is simply the best. I like Bullet for my Valentine too, but I think A7X is way better. And where is Killswitch Engage? This Fire should be on the list too. That's what I think

Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine Cover Art

Killer opener from 'Fever'. Fantastic intro, and the following two tracks are just as good.

Parallels - As I Lay Dying Parallels - As I Lay Dying Cover Art

Good guitar riffs... nice vocals... just plain AWESOME man. I actually hated all metal stuff but I changed after I heard this song

This should be in the number 1! As I Lay Dying owns all of these bands. Their lyrics, guitar riffs, drum riffs, and vocal are the best! Rock On As I Lay Dying

Good guitar, good screaming, good song.

I think The sound of truth by As I Lay dying should be on this list too

Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium Cover Art

WHAT? Tears Don't Fall is 1st.? Come on guys, this song is 10000 miles better than that, and Trvium is by far the best metalcore band in the world with As I Lay Dying and All That Remains... Bullet For My Valentine is good, but even Waking The Demon is better than tears don't fall... VOTE FOR THIS!

Simply the best. The riffs, solo and chorus just mix into the greatest metalcore song ever written. There is no contest. Pull harder reigns supreme.

Lots of good songs on this list. Nevertheless, screw them all compared to this masterpiece.

This song and Parallels by As I lay dying are only songs I prefer on this list, No offense

It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon Cover Art

A blasting intro, Oli Skyles screaming like anything and the female chorus makes it one of the most awesome metalcore/screamo songs ever. This song is highly experimental and the chorus by Oli Skyles adds and epic feel. Certainly the best by BMTH. It deserves to be number 1, The Final Episode does not match up to this masterpeice.

The song is very catchy and melodic. Meaningful lyrics as well

Deep and meaningful lyrics, harsh yet melodic, and influence from classical music that you don't often hear.

This is a great song but doesn't compare to the entire Suicide Season album.

For the Night - Arcite For the Night - Arcite Cover Art

Absolutely love these guys! First time I saw them was the most mind blowing set I've ever witnessed. Relatable & meaningful lyrics, expertly delivered, clever catchy riffs, epic drumming & a stomping bass line! ALL members of the band most definitely get laid! Uh may zing!

If you have not listened to this album "the escape key" trust me when I tell you that you are missing out big time, it's a master piece of metal core

The guitar riffs though...epic.


Neverland - Demotional Neverland - Demotional Cover Art

Just fell in love with this song! Amazing lyrics! 1

Its awesome..
Demotional is a new band
But what they ve put in this song, it shows that how talented they are

In Waves - Trivium In Waves - Trivium Cover Art

Well, actually best metalcore song ever is Pull Harder, but I cannot see it here, so I vote for this.

Something different with this song than other Trivium songs. because this one different, it not means this song is bad. I dunno what the word I must say, but I think this song like a "song of death" with the piano music in it. and don't forget with heafy and corey guitar solo. so BEST!

Nice scream! Love it.

It is way better than tear don't fall

While She Sleeps - Four Walls

This song means so much to me and always gives me chills. While She Sleeps in general I believe fills up my whole top ten.

Best Metalcore band now...

the intro gave me chill

This one is just epic!

The Contenders

My Last Serenade - Killswitch Engage My Last Serenade - Killswitch Engage Cover Art

This is certainly the best metal-core band closely followed by As I Lay Dying, Shadows Fall and Devil Driver.
I have to say that picking a best song to represent their incredible talent is difficult because you are simply spoiled for choice.
This song shines with quality.. The composition is perfect and the contrast of acoustic melody and bad *ss metal riffs is astounding. It's an impressive piece along with Rose Of Sharyn, Reject Yourself, My Curse and Element Of One.

Duh, lyrics, vocals and let's not forget the beautiful guitar.

Beautiful song, sweet riffs...this is a gem

Clearly number 1 no doubt with that

Illusions - Demotional Illusions - Demotional Cover Art

Best song of them

This track is simply one of the best melodic metalcore songs I have ever heard and I have heard a lot. The band is ok, but this track is insanley good. Gets me going in the gym! Eargasm!

The Final Episode - Asking Alexandria The Final Episode - Asking Alexandria Cover Art

Why is this so low? I'm not saying it deserves #1 out of every song or even all those on this list, but it definitely deserves top 5. I mean this was Danny at his peak, before the whole Death to Destiny bull. And Danny's peak is just glorious.

Every Metalcore Dethcore Fan Should Listen to this song...! 100 sure you guys love it... I love Every song in this list.. But this one should be in the list...
Cheak out Asking Alexandria band too...

This is an EPIC song, but I'm not sure it out ranks a few others on this list. IT IS PRETTY DESTRUCTIVE though.

This band is the end result if One Direction tried to be hardcore.

This Calling - All that Remains This Calling - All that Remains Cover Art

great screams, clean vocals, guitars, and best drummer ever.
whta's not to like with this song?

Just wondering this band and killswitch engage are not on the top list... Don't know what's happening here..

Why is this song not in the top 5? Come on people All That Remains is One Of The Best and possibly is The Best band in the world. Competing against Tears Don't Fall? This song would and should be the top 1. No if and or buts about it.

Saw these guys in concert and they are amazing! Love this song #repeat

Chapter Four - Avenged Sevenfold Chapter Four - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

Great intro, amazing backing vocal, epic guitar, kick ass drum! Give my comments some thumb

A perfect song from a perfect band. Just because A7X stopped making metalcore doesn't mean their first songs aren't part of the genre. Unholy Confessions, Chapter 4, Second Heartbeat, Eternal Rest and Remenissions are perfect melodic metalcore examples.

This song is amazing! Take bmth off of this list please!


Built to Fall - Trivium Built to Fall - Trivium Cover Art
Not Ready to Die - Demon Hunter Not Ready to Die - Demon Hunter Cover Art
Two Weeks - All that Remains Two Weeks - All that Remains Cover Art

Its not very heavy or brutal, but its really beautiful and catchy and it can still make you headbang! Wonderful song.

Sick song, Sick band should be at least top 15, and at least one other ATR song should be top 10

Sleepwalker - Parkway Drive Sleepwalker - Parkway Drive Cover Art

As an Australian, I am really proud of how famous Parkway Drive have become. The drumming is nothing short of brilliant, the rhythms combined with distortion and the melodic metalcore style of busting them out raises your blood pressure, gets adrenaline rushing and gives you the compelling urge to break down and mosh. I love this song, 10/10 in my opinion! -Justin

Great song. I love how much meaning they put into their songs its not just about how brutal their songs can be. I also liked the guitars and drums in this song. The vocals pretty great too.

Yep, this is the pinnacle of metalcore right here.

How this isn't in the top 5 I have no idea right now.

My Curse - Killswitch Engage My Curse - Killswitch Engage Cover Art

This list is sad because this awesome song isn't in the top 10 and yet its below songs from awful bands like Asking Alexandra and Bring Me the Horizon

Best metalcore song from the best metalcore band. Either that or This Fire Burns!

How can this not be number 1? Killswitch are the only metal core band that are any good..

The song is so well written, it's insane for it not to at least be in the top ten.

Duty - Dawn of Justice Duty - Dawn of Justice Cover Art
Carrion - Parkway Drive Carrion - Parkway Drive Cover Art

Parkway Drive is easily one of the best metalcore bands of this generation!

this should be in the top 5 at least, this song is easily the greatest song on this list

I personally prefer Horizons to this, but it is still easily better than all the songs listed above it. Unholy Confessions isn't even metalcore.

This should be number one for sure. I've been to to 3 of their concerts and every time they ask the crowd which song before we leave everyone screamed CARRION! Proof

Black - Trivium Black - Trivium Cover Art
Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

This isn't metalcore

This song is a jam

The Last Time - All that Remains The Last Time - All that Remains Cover Art

Probably one of my favorite songs by them!
