Best Parkway Drive Songs
The Top Ten
The brutal breakdowns that fluctuate from beginning to end, contrasting amazingly with the ambient strings in the final moments. This is what makes this song so powerful. So diverse. Love it!
The breakdown in this song is so awesome and heavy I threw my neck out when I was driving the other day. #spin
That bit at the end gives me chill, it's so awesome and the instruments blend so well.
Throughout the whole song the quality of blending and harmonizing of the instruments is done almost perfectly.
Not Only The Best Song By PWD, this Is Going To Have A Fight For "Which Song Is The Best In Genre"
Brilliant Rhythm Guitar
No contest; nothing compares to this song well constructed, excellent vocals, and I never get tired of it. "carrion! In a moment I'm lost! Drowning from the inside! Her eyes take me away. Tare me apart from the inside out! " just look at the lyrics and fall in love. This song mad me notice them. Now I can't go back! Keep up the good work!
While I get why this song is now atop the leader board and love the song, it's really hard for me to pick a number one song from these guys. I mean you got Idols and Anchors, Sleepwalker, Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em (which is down at 18 for some reason), and more. I really do enjoy it and listen to it a lot (as I do with all Parkway Drive songs), but I just can't pick a number one. A top 5 for sure, but not a number one. Too many smexy songs by these guys to single out just one.
Awesome song, just love the way he screams CARRION at the intro - hellboy15
First time hearing the opening - I was sold, still my favorite songV 14 Comments
This has the best riff of any Parkway song. I can just listen to this all day and not get over how awesome it is
Best parkway song ever! Song slays romance is dead and carrion. Sleepwalker is parkway at their absolute best. This song is all Jeff ling. The best riff he's ever come up with for sure
Easily the greatest Parkway song. The opening riff! The opening riff!
How did this not make it in the top 5?V 7 Comments
Amazing song. Kicks off with an awesome drum solo and just has addictive riffs throughout the whole song. Absolutely cannot get enough.
First Parkway Drive Song for me, the song's just one big breakdown and it's awesome for that
This song is amazing and addictive
This is perhaps one of the best tracks in the entire metalcore genre! The lyrics, the music, the passion...
A good change of pace. A little slower, but still has an awesome breakdown
Probably their best instrumentals in a track. It's both slow and fast at the same time! I have so many favorites, but this is the first that comes to mind.
This is perhaps one of the greatest tracks of the genre, in my honest unbiased opinion it truly holds a place in the history books, the pure passion and story it tells, people need to be hearing and reading up on the lyrics and taking time to understand its meaning. Its absolutely unbelieveable.V 6 Comments
This song is nuts! Really catchy guitar riff at 0.51 and really good screams from Winston throughout the whole song. Definitely gives songs like Carrion and Idols and Anchors so much support off their best album!
Probably my all time favorite breakdown
While I believe this to be their best song, this list is very accurate in terms of songs. These ten are most definitely the best ten Parkway Drive songs in my opinion.
Should be in at least top 5V 3 Comments
Awesome song, the last 1:30 has the slickest solo to a huge breakdown I've ever heard
I have been listening to these guys for years now and their latest album blew me away. This and Slow Surrender are incredible.
Passionate, meaningful, excellent vocal work from winston McCall, nice riffing, insane breakdown! Carrion close second though.
Best song I've ever heardV 3 Comments
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Fantastic highs and lows! Don't even get me started on the instrumentals! Not only that, but the lyrics are downright phenomenal. Just look it up if you can and fall in love with this!
Feel like I should be running into stadium about to play football with this song
Best parkway drive song ever
Can I get a great breakdown like this song?V 5 Comments
One of the best Intros I've ever heard. Love every riff. Drums are amazing. Vocals are equally incredible. I can't believe this isn't in the top ten let alone the top 3. Just listen to this song and I promise you too can understand the true meaning to live.
This song is the definition of a metalcore song. Fast tempo, catchy riffs, tapping interlude and a nice solo to finish off.
I love this song! Definitely the best! If I could play the guitar like this... And I'm a girl (would be hot, hm? ;) ) This guitar part at the end... It's just orgiastic and pure perfection! Period.
The only thing that made me to love the song is the tap guitar riff/lick. Just listen the middle part. You'll love. - zxmV 5 Comments
This should be in the top 3. The Hardcore intro and all those killer riffs-those breakdowns. This is an epic.
Dope Ass riffs throughout the whole songs. LOVE IT
One of my personal favorites, should be in the top 5 at least. Everything is good about this song, the vocals, the screaming, the guitar, the breakdown. One of the best songs on atlas.
This was one of the first Parkway songs I heard when I was getting back into metal, this song is the reason I got back into listening to metal again, should be in top 10 at least
Best song on atlas. So much power and emotion behind this song. And it's heavy and the riffs are badass.

Maybe a bit different from the usual Parkway song structure, but such an amazing guitar riff and intense vocals! The song is a masterpiece in structure, melody and intensity. A shame they never play it live... - OpenedFistV 1 Comment
The guitar in this song is just unbelievable
"An icon cast in the light of freer times, now writhes in a bed of lies! "
Very emotional, great riffs and deep and personal lyrics, what's not to love
This Song brought me to PWD. I love the riff of it and it's definitely one of the best songs live EVER!V 1 Comment
This is the kind of thing that will bring metal in to the new era. This is the musical violence that the masses can relate to.
So heavy, unique, polished and diverse! Love the lyrics! Definitely stands out from the rest!
Listen to it and you will agree.
This song is so aggresive and deserved the top ten like dying to believeV 5 Comments
Wow! One of my favorites. Not sure how it's ranked so low. Definitely in my top 5. And yes, the chorus is amazing!
This shouldn't be so low! It's an incredible song, and the chorus is haunting. All of the instruments complement eachother, resulting in a really fantastic song! Not my absolute favourite, but a very viable contender for second or third place.
Hard hitting song, late chorus is epic
This should be in the top 3!
No contest, hands down some of the most beautifully brutal music ever produced. Listen to it now and crank it.
Last 40 Seconds of this song = Best breakdown I've heard so far.
Heavy breakdowns, cool melodic part
Very good lyrics about an atomic bomb.
The part after 2:55 is just amazing, and energizing
My favorite from their first album...
Great guitar. A fast paced song with a great breakdown
One of my favourite songs by them, I don't understand why they never play this live though?!
Can't beat that , awesome breakdown, great vocal ranges growls screams and clean vocals. Insane riffs and overall energy. Top that .
Can't get it out of my head
Should be the national anthem of australia
Their best song yet
