Best Pierce the Veil Songs


The Top Ten

1 King for a Day

This song is the epitome of perfection.
Not many artists these days that write with meaning behind their lyrics; this song is just pure gold!
I wasn't even a huge fan of PTV, but this song has changed my view on them

Kellin and Vic. Match made in Heaven!

This song got me into Pierce The Veil, got me into punk, got me into post-hardcore, got me into screamo - got me into good music basically! It is a great song, amazing lyrics, breakdown is mind-blowing. Kellin and Vic's voices merge perfectly together and both of their screaming is great too. Will always love this song. <3 PTV

Definitely the best hands down

I love this song, Vic Fuentes's high singing voice mixes well with A Day To Remember's lead singer, Jeremy Mickinon screams. I love both and I hope more songs like this comes out.

This is by far the best pierce the veil song and the only one I can stand without turning it off. Up vote it guys! Jeremy mckinnon is the bomb

jeremy mckinnon is what made this song decent. - jman16

The acoustic version is so good

This song is outstanding it is absolutely amazing, I get butterflies when I listen to it. I know every single lyric, I love it so much, Pierce The Veil are one of the best bands in the whole entire world. The day I saw them in concert was the day my life was complete

When I first heard it, 4 hours awake and 8 hours asleep the song was on repeat. I had fallen asleep listening to it. When I woke up, my phone battery was almost over.
Just an experience but I still listen to it everyday.
Will never get tired of it.

What an amazing song. A sonic roller-coaster ride from start to finish. Powerful and stinging lyrics. It's seemingly effortless transitions leave you breathless once the top of the crescendo of sound. If you don't listen to this song you can rest assured you have missed everything.

This song is so AMAZING! Everything is perfect! I love everything about his song.. And the acoustic version... OH MY GOD.. This was the first song I've ever heard by them.. This is what made me fall in love! My second was carapherneila I love that one too..

Why is this not Number 3? It's so beautiful and I can't get enough of it! The music and melody go great and how they sing it is just absolutely beautiful. It deserves better!

This song is fantastic! First song I have heard by this band and I'm completely loving them now. They're a great band. The musicians are wonderful and the vocalist is incredible. Not to mention the songs are good. Lovely lyrics

The best.

This is definitely my favorite song by them. I literally have to listen to it once a day or I'll crazy. Pierce the Veil is amazing.

This song is so meaningful and beautiful! The guitar playing at the beginning is so catchy and the lyrics are very pretty. My favorite lyrics are "What a waste of a perfectly good, clean wrist... " Those lyrics are so helpful. I love Pierce the Veil so much

This is my favorite song, not just by Pierce The Veil, but by of all songs. I've been on the verge of crying, and almost cut myself one night, but I listened to that song, and everything bad stopped. I couldn't understand why I loved the song until the night after. It made me strong again. - speedie056

I absolutely love this song, its not one of the first songs I heard by them unfortunately but it helped me through a lot.
Pierce the Veil is one of the best bands to listen to if you like lyrics with actual meaning behind them.

6 Hold on Till May

This song is overall amazing! T's definitely my favourite song by them! It makes me think, and about every other time I listen to this song tears come to my eyes. I mean just the lyrics alone are amazing and the beat is lovely as well.
"if I were you, I'd put that away. See you're just wasted and thinking about the past again. Darling you'll be okay" those lyrics alone just mean so so much to me, especially hearing it come from Vic.

I'm learning this on guitar and singing it as well for a class project. This song means so much to me it's helped me through so much needless to say pierce the veil has helped me too. In my opinion this song should be at the top of the list. I think every girl (and boy) deserves to hear the words "darling you'll be okay" That's all we ever wanna know in life, is if we'll be okay, I wouldn't change a thing about this song. The acoustic is my favorite version, I think just vic and a guitar really makes all the difference, I recommend listening to it.

Everything about this song amazes me. I think it deserves to get much more attention than it does. From the lyrics "I'll make you feel beautiful once again, " to Jaime's guitar to Lindsey Stamey's vocals. I'm in love with this song.

This song represents a lot. The lyrics are so beautiful and go along so perfectly. I can't go a day without listening to this song, the acoustic version is absolutely beautiful.

7 A Match Into Water

I actually can't believe this is so low down on the list. It's just so heat-clenching and chilling lyrically.
"I kissed the scars on her skin"
"I screamed out, "God, you vulture,
Bring her back or take me with her"

Also, the "we will bring the tidal wave" is incredible live.

Totally awesome! My favorite part is when he shouts she's mine! You stay away from her its not her time!

This is just the best song of all! I love this song. this is what got me into this band. its just so emotional and so sweet " I kissed the scars on her skin. I still think your beautiful" I mean that's just so heart clenching. you just have to love this song so much. I just love this song so much. I played this song to my boyfriend because he cuts and we just cried. its just such a great song

"God you vulture! Give her back or take me with her! "

8 Hell Above

I think this song should be number two, if not one. Out of all the pierce the veil songs, this one has the most powerful lyrics in my opinion. Especially in the beginning of this song, entitled, "May these Noises Startle You in Your Sleep Tonight." The lyrics talk about a boy who I believe is supposed to be Vic, questioning if his house is really a home. The energy he has when he sings this song gets louder and more powerful as he goes on, like he's truthfully angry about what he's singing, er screaming. I've seen them multiple times in concert and when Vic screams the first part of this song, it looks like it's coming from his heart. I'm absolutely in love with this song and I sing it from the bottom of my heart all the time. This has to be my favorite Pierce the Veil song.

This is one of my favourite songs because of the fantastic lyrics it makes me want to constantly listen to this on repeat over and over again

This should be at least no.2...that lyrics are just like carved into our flesh...vic's voice is even more powerful in this song and takes us to another dimension...must be on top 5 songs

YES. THE LYRICS CUT ME DEEP. though I could never survived whatever he'd gone through, but I can feel the pain in the track. LOVE IT.

9 Besitos

My favourite song, on my favourite album, by my favourite band. It rips, start to finish. I love Vic's mixed voice in it: his amazing post-hardcore vocals comprising most of it, combined with his sick screaming (red rose of the dead), beautiful singing (baby, leave the water by the bed for later), and everyone's favourite part, a diamond bullet and a gun made of gold. The emotion and meaning behind it are so powerful. I read a line-by-line analysis of the meaning and it blew my mind. Some of their best songwriting, and that's saying something. Not to overlook the instrumentals; Tony's shredding in the chorus is too hard for my dad who's been playing for 40 years. Everything about it is perfect. I love it just as much every time I listen to it.

This is for sure my favorite pierce the veil song, this should be #1. I mean really, how can this song be #17?! What kind of a list is this?! And I love the "a diamond bullet, a gun made of gold, she was covered in blood last seen in san fran sisco" part, that part is just epic...

I absolutely without a doubt love this song! It's amazing! Especially the awesome and fast lead at the beginning. Makes a person dance, literally! I recommend this song so much!

yes though

10 Yeah Boy and Doll Face

I love this song. Its the best song I have ever heard, unique, pierce the veil have there own style that nobody could copy, it's a story of its own. Just keep on singing you guys, you have plenty of fans, just keep on rocking

I can probably listen to this song for the rest of my life and never get sick of it. I think it's PERFECT.

The fact that this song is so down the list is disappointing. This song describes my life. The meaning of the song is so perfect I don't think anyone can improve it. My heart clenches every time I hear it. Every time.

Hands down* - Bedless

The Contenders

11 I Don't Care If You're Contagious

This song can be so beautiful and meaningful once you know the inspiration behind it. It was written for a fan whose boyfriend had passed away. Apparently, the first time they ever even held hands was at a Pierce the Veil show. The band felt so moved by this, that they wrote this song as a tribute to that couple, meant to be as though the boyfriend were still watching over his girl.

It is so sweet and it should be the best song! It has amazing lyrics. Honestly it is so sweet that my boyfriend and I just had to make it our song. Its timeless. I could listen to it all day. If just makes me cry because this song has meaning. It comes from the heart and so many songs now are just annoying radio crap. They need good music like THIS! On the radio. I am in love with this song.

This song is my favorite song by far off of all three albums. This song has much sentimental value to me because this was me and my friend's song. He past away a couple of days ago and I can't stop listening to it. The line that really gets me is "I don't care if you're sick, I don't care if you're contagious, I'd kiss you even if you were dead", it takes my breath away, because well he id dead and k would kiss him still. I loved him, and I still do.

Love this song so much

12 Chemical Kids and Mechanical Brides

This song deserves to be number 1, no matter how old it is. It has helped me through so much, accompanied me through a road of darkness and kept me hopeful. From Vic's beautiful voice to the haunting guitar riffs, this song is complete utter perfection. The line that gets me every time is "I held a diamond to the sun to count the moments on account of the way you smile, smile for me." I'm not sure as to why, I think it's just the way Vic says it that makes me tear up. He is beautiful, Pierce The Veil are beautiful, the song is beautiful, thank you Vic. You have saved so many lives, mine included.

This song does everything a song should; Keep the listener screaming for more. The beautiful riffs, the amazing vocals, topped off with deep, tear-inducing lyrics

This was their first song. Vic's voice is full of emotion and its natural sweet frail sound make this song so much more meaningful.

This song is my favourite by them vics voice is beautiful and the lyrics are amazing

13 The Boy Who Could Fly

I am absolutely in love with this song. Fast paced, and very catchy. Of course I love the songs higher on the list, but The Boy Who Could Fly along with Southern Constellations just makes my heart melt every time. Especially the line, "Without you there is no me," because of how heartfelt that line can come off as. Personal reason to loving this song are tied in, but I wouldn't want to bother listing those reasons off as this song isn't about me and how it relates to me as one person. I highly recommend listening to this song, but I also recommend hearing this in harmony with Southern Constellations. Together, it's a very haunting yet beautiful story of love and heartbreak told by a man who gets much less credit than he deserves for his music.

Needs to be number one! This song is utterly amazing. It helped me through much and every single time I listen to it I still love it as much as I did the first time I heard it. My all time favourite song in the world.

How is this song not number 1?!?! This song is better than amazing-its fantabulous! Especially with "southern constellations. " Just go listen to "southern constellations, " and "the boy who could fly, " so you can hear a piece of heaven.

This is my favorite song by them

14 The New National Anthem

This song is sooo beautiful. Not just Vic's singing. It's the lyrics and especially the instrumentals that pull everything over the top. Combined, they make my favorite ptv song. I love the transition between a verse and the chorus "somebody's suppose to... TEAR THIS PLACE APART UNTIL YOU FIND ME HIDING" it all paints a picture in my mind I can relate to. And I love how it sounds like he's trying to tell someone everything's going to be okay in the end, when in this situation he may not gets what he wants. Desperation. He almost convinces himself "everything's okay." LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH.

This song is absolutely brilliant. This was the third song I had listened to pierce the veil and this song made me fall in love with them. The beginning of the song is magic and as it picks up it just gets better and better. This song should be so much higher on the list. Vic fuentes voice is stupifying. Truly one of their best songs.

I just love it. Because' as I remember my days when in highschool with my boyfriend and yeah IT'S JUST AWESOME TO LISTEN TO, seriously most of my week I would listen to this about 4 times a day, by the way keep voting!

UGHDGSPKIFJLDGJSVGFL :ZDJ OHMYGODILOVETHIS SONG well I like all of these songs and like I had a hard time trying to choose one but the way this song is sang is just so beautiful and I love some of the lyrics, like "I'm holding her just like she's gold" and "If I ever catch the ones who hurt you, I, I'm hoping that God looks away this time. Why would I let you go? " TEAR THIS PLACE APART UNTIL YOU FIND ME HIDING< SILENTLY I WAIT. YOU'LL BE EXCITED JUST TO SEE ME SOMEDAY."
I like this song a lot if you can't tell.
Its just so beautiful, all of it. The vocals, the music, and all of the passion Vic put into singing it. It really touches ones heart.

15 The Sky Under the Sea

I really love this song! So surprised it didn't make the top 10 because its a beautifully written song.

This is the song that made me truly appreciate Pierce The Veil. I'm very surprised this did not make top 10

This was the very first song I heard from them if it wasn't for this song I wouldn't be listening to them. And I still love the song, it should be in a higher rank

It was one of the best songs in selfish machines with lots of passion and meaning surprised its not a top 10 song

16 One Hundred Sleepless Nights

NO THIS DESERVES AT LEAST 5. This song is about Cara. About the night she told Vic about the baby. This song tells about wanting to be with someone but knowing you can't. It is beautiful.

I enjoy dancing to this song. Yes because it is so catchy and just yes.

To me, the only track off their newest album I enjoyed as much as King For a Day. Chorus is super catchy, been listening on repeat for quite some time now. Dunno why its all the way at number 25

This song should be in the top it's so good

17 Stained Glass Eyes and Colorful Tears

This song is the best! I love how Vic says, "Maybe I'll pretend right now, but I swear to god I'm gonna change the world. " They have changed the world. Well, mine of course. I owe it all to them. They're my heroes

I listened to this song at my darkest moments and it helped me more than anyone or anything could this coming from a 13 year old girl from LA it doesn't sound like I would have a bad life or even listen to this amazing music but this song changed my life I would be dead right now without them. I owe everything to them

I am inspired by this song. It gets me through anything! I love many of their songs but this one keeps me strong to carry on. I instantly fell in love with this song when I fist heard it playing. Its by far the best song ever to me!

This song helped me through a really tough time and it deserves to be way higher on this list - calainn

18 I'm Low on Gas and You Need a Jacket

Tried to wash you down with something strong! The lyrics are so deep and meaningful, not to mention the slow tempo that you could listen to when you're just trying to relax! Vic just proved that it didn't matter what type of song he does, it will be perfectly amazing!

YES YES YES. But why is this song so low on the list?!?! Definitely my favorite song by them, probably my favorite song ever by any artist. It means so much to me and I can relate to it in so many ways. First song to ever make me cry. And I'm by no means a crier!

This song will be the death of me I swear! I'm I love with everything about this song and my hear BURNS when I hear it. I have a horrible history with it but it made me love it more. Through that I inspired my creativity and to this day still does.

One of my favorites!

19 Tangled in the Great Escape

This song is easily one of my favorites! Considering it has Vic and Jason Butler, it really does deserve to be in the top 10. Jason's deep, smooth voice paired with Vic's high-pitched voice is like sex on sex. Plus, the song is about being straight-edge. It just makes is so much better. I am in LOVE with this song. Everyone should listen to this.

This song has so much meaning.. Definitely better than King For A Day. It's basically like a suicide story. "I let you down, and I started to run, never meant to be your pain.. What have I become? "

I can't even describe what this song means to me. It reminds me so much of my friends. I don't even know what to say. Amazing that they could put these feelings into words so very accurately. Yes. Just yes.

This is probably my favorite song by them! Why is it so low on the list?

20 Stay Away from My Friends

How is this song so low on the list? It isn't their normal style but this is seriously one of the most beautiful and meaningful songs I've ever heard in my life. This song is just really something special

Awesome song and its, telling a Ex lover to leave them alone and their friends. You'll be singing along in no time.

A reason why I love this song is because up until the end, you don't really truly know exactly what this song is about. Although the lyrics gives you hints and such, it's not till one of the last lines that you know the deep meaning behind the song.

The song that got me into ptv! Absolutely love this song so much
