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!
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.
The breakdown in this song is so awesome and heavy I threw my neck out when I was driving the other day. #spin
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...
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.
A good change of pace. A little slower, but still has an awesome breakdown
Very good build-up, nice riffing. The middle part has a very nice flow to it. The breakdown is one of Parkway's best, just beaten by Boneyars in my opinion. The last part is just one big celebration. First place for me.V 7 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
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.
Good tune man!V 6 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
The screaming and the blast beats in this song are amazing. Best metal song ever!V 7 Comments
I have been listening to these guys for years now and their latest album blew me away. This and Slow Surrender are incredible.
Awesome song, the last 1:30 has the slickest solo to a huge breakdown I've ever heard
Passionate, meaningful, excellent vocal work from winston McCall, nice riffing, insane breakdown! Carrion close second though.
BEHOLD THE PALE HORSE!V 4 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.
Intro bangsV 7 Comments
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... - OpenedFist
The tapping part is awesome!
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!
This song is so aggresive and deserved the top ten like dying to believeV 5 Comments
Hard hitting song, late chorus is epic
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.
This should be in the top 3!
Wow! One of my favorites. Not sure how it's ranked so low. Definitely in my top 5. And yes, the chorus is amazing!
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
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...
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.
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?!
The heaviest Parkway song, the whole song is a breakdown, by far my favorite song by them, so brutal and in your face
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
Their best song yet
Should be the national anthem of australia
Title itself deserves top 10 spot
Every Song should be in the Top 10
Just an awesome song!
Vocals are superb
Come on lads how the f""k can you miss this off?
Can't believe this song is below Dark Days. Sure, that is a good song too, but Atlas is one of the best songs ever made (at least only opinion). And that is regarding all genres... !
This song is the best off the album. Just a really bangin tune. If you haven't heard the album yet, listen to this song first
This song is EPIC! The screams, riffs and drums are on point. Makes me headbang every darn time.
An amazing song. Sadly underrated though
The intro and main riff is one of the best things I've ever heard and the guitar solo is absolutely amazing!
This song is so underrated.
This Isn't Best Song By PWD
But It's Totally Underrated...Geez! That Guitar Melody Drives Me Crazy
I Can Listen To This For Rest Of My Life
In My Opinion This Is The Best Song In ((Ire))
Masterpiece Guitar Melody, Awesome Drums Playing, Killer Vocal
This Is An Epic Song
At Least Should Be In Top 5
Definitely the best off deep blue
This should be top 3, this and horizons are my favorite but there are so many good songs from parkway all albums are good.
This song is executed to perfection. It is easily one of the top 3 songs on Horizons. Gets you so pumped! - eyah
Such a Brilliant Masterpiece on the Last position?!
Clearly it should be at the top. This song is overall so good,. I mean the guitar solos and riffs are just so good.
I believe this is the only song currently released by the band which you can hear winstons clean vocals, not a bad song
Should be way higher on the list, hands down the best song of the album. It may not have as catchy of an intro as wild eyes, but it kills it for awesomeness.
The lyrics to this song are so powerful and the outro leaves you thinking. Honestly there are too many amazing parkway drive songs to make a list laugh out loud
This song should be top 10. Just amazing from start to finish. Atlas is their best album in my opinion and this and the river should be top 10.
One of their best. This and A Deathless Song sure deserve a spot in the Top 10 list.V 4 Comments
Seriously don't get how this song is so low, it's #1 for me. One badass riff after another, and doesn't get repetitive! Powerful vocals and lyrics that send a great message.
This song is amazing, the breakdown is one of their most brutal to date!
Can't be on 44 lol this must be a mistake one of their best songs
This song has probably the most incredible mix of screams of PwD!
For me, it's a tie between this and "Romance Is Dead". This song is one of the best endings to an album I've ever heard. - ThatStrangeKid42
Underrated song! Deserves to be ranked higher!
Easily the best track on Ire
"I've see enough to know,
Who talks the talk,
Who walks the walk,
And who's for show!
Should be way higher than 30
This hell we call home!
Just a super awesome song. - Mixer
In my opinion definitely top 5 insane pwd song deserves to be higher
That is so sad that this song ranks so low on this list. Who the hell compiled this list anyway? Best Parkway song yet.
Best riff and breakdown
How on earth is this rated so lowly? This is an insane song, so heavy
This is ironically their best and most pure sound yet not that popular apparently! - SummonSkeletons
EASILY one of the top 5 songs that they have! I mean just listen to that opening guitar! The screams are just on point as well, especially when it starts to get about half way through the song. How is this song so low on this list?
This song just destroys! I can't say how underappreciated this song really is compared to more of the classic Horizon's songs. The solo that is the intro along with the breakdown at the end of the song are just flat out amazing.
I hate to give a favorite overall song for parkway drive because so many are good. This song is probably the best underrated song they have. It is just crushing from start to finish and ends with a brutal breakdown that will make you want to crush someone.
41! No way! Should be top 20. My personal top 10.
How is this not in the top 5 or even listed on here for that matter?
my absolute favourite parkway drive song
Def should be higher upV 1 Comment
A lot of people like pandora better. Not me though
Carpe Diem, Straight for the throat. Do I need to mention the breakdown in the middle? Dark and heavy song with a cool bass intro.
My favorite by my favorite band.
Love the almost uneasy vibe this song gives off
Kickass song! It just has so much to tell!
