Top 10 Best Metalcore Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Hey Mister - Miss May I

This song is one of my faves, it's a really heart-breaking and frikking amazing song that I can relate to as an abandoned child. This is a total X-splosion of awesome drumming, growling and lyrics that tell a story

102 White Washed - August Burns Red

This song is plain sick. Jake's brilliant screaming, Matt's hectic drumming, fast paced head bang inducing breakdowns, top notch entertaining all throughout!

Has the perfect blend of melody, complexity, and just downright heaviness. It has emotion and is really what metalcore should be all about.

Wait, what? - Mixer

103 Our Courage, Our Cancer - While She Sleeps
104 Born to Lose - The Devil Wears Prada
105 Dark Days - Parkway Drive V 2 Comments
106 5 Words of My Last Breath - Mashburn Riffs
107 Beauty In Tragedy - August Burns Red

Why isn't this song on this list? The lyrics, riffs, drums, power, just everything is great in this song!

108 Sometimes You're the Hammer, Sometimes You're the Nail - A Day to Remember
109 Big Wiggly Style - The Devil Wears Prada

Being that The Devil Wears Prada is a Christian metal core band, sets the bar up high for their type of genre. The breakdowns in this song is nothing less than amazing. I'm not much of a Christian myself, but this band kills every song they seem to write and they preform it even better.

110 Darkness Surrounding - Avenged Sevenfold

Great metalcore song. Even has a little hint of punk rock in it too

All these other bands, sure are metalcore, but they mix in other genres. Old A7X is pure metalcore. So are KSE and Bullet For My Valentine. Should be at least top 20.

111 Cauterize - As I Lay Dying
112 1984 - Adestria
113 My Only Home - As I Lay Dying
114 Indonesia - August Burns Red
115 In Friends We Trust - Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!

Guys, C! NCC are a great band. In fact, one of the greatest. But people, they're categorized as EASYCORE. Easycore is a mix of pop punk and hardcore. Metalcore is a mix of heavy metal and hardcore.

116 (&) Delinquents - Woe, Is Me
117 I Won't See You Tonight Part 2 - Avenged Sevenfold

Most hardcore song, lyrics have so much meaning, definitely one of the best.

One of the most hardcore Avenged Sevenfold songs

The whole song is like one big breakdown lol.

118 Dream Beings - My City, My Secret
119 Suck Out the Poison - Destruction of a Rose
120 Resume Ignore - Exit Ten
