Best Queensryche Songs


The Top Ten

1 Eyes of a Stranger Eyes of a Stranger

And I raise my head and stare... Operation mindcrime is the best record ever to be made! I'll never stop listen to it!

This song was the perfect ending to my favourite rock opera. One of the greatest metal songs of all time.

One of the most addicting and evergreen Metal Song of 80s. Operation Mindcrime, Empire & Rage for Order are Queensryche Finest. Chris Degarmo's Departure sadly reversed the fortunes of this band.

Mindcrime is my favorite. Best ever... maybe. Breaking The Silence should be #1.

2 Silent Lucidity Silent Lucidity

It's a complete work of art in the music field, definitely number 1 in my opinion!

Without a doubt the best song ever written in Queensryche history, it brings out so much sense that it can be compared to Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb'.

DeGarmo was and will always be the genius behind the band's success.

Silent Lucidity is a very clear example of the pure art of writing great music.

This is a masterpiece, no way eyes of stranger is the first place. This song is full of emotions. The best that queensryche will ever make.

LOL #2. Good song... but jeez people. Jet City? Empire? Every Mindcrime song? Wow...

3 Suite Sister Mary

It is not just a queensryche song it is a metal masterpiece and it's one of my favourite songs by the band.

One word... EPIC! There voices together are just the most amazing combination ever. MARY MARAY. m/

I think this song is awesome. It's actually my third favorite song by Queensryche. I love the duet and all the layering of effects in this song. If you haven't already heard it, please be sure to check it out ­čśŐ.

4 Queen of the Reich Queen of the Reich

This song deserves more than any other to be number one. It was the first song I heard by them and by far better than Eyes of a Stranger - PsychoSandman33

Queen of the reich got me into queensryche. To be only 4 minutes long and melt your face away! Classic METAL!

Come on. The first place belongs to the Queen of the Reich.

In my opinion, best Queensr├┐che song. Your soul slipped belongs to the Queen of the Reich! - Element119

5 Jet City Woman Jet City Woman

It's their best song of Empire after silent lucidity and one of my favourite Queensryche songs.

Jet city woman it should be way higher on the list the solos make this the best on empire.

It features one of the best vocals by Geoff Tate and a very good chorus, it deserves
it's place on the list.

6 Take Hold of the Flame Take Hold of the Flame

Although the whole mindcrime disc is mindblowing, the vocals and sheer passion in this song is mindblowing. Very emotional like much of their music. Awesome band both live and studio.

This is the stairway to heaven, the child in time of Queensryche just a mind blowing masterpiece

7 Empire Empire

My favorite song from queensryche. The song is followed closely by operation mindcrime eyes of a stranger and suite sister mary

8 The Mission The Mission

A very powerful and underrated OM... Could easily be on the top of this list... Brilliantly done from start to finish.

As I was typing that Breaking The Silence should be #1, I thought "what about The Mission"... 'enough said...

One of my favourite songs as haunting deserves to be higher right next to eye's of a stranger

10 Revolution Calling

The lyrics are more relevant today than they were in 1988!

The Newcomers

? Hand on Heart Hand on Heart
? The Whisper The Whisper

I believe this song is about an Occult ritual. Really evil guitar riff and lyrics. Huge, epic. My fave after Eyes.

The Contenders

11 I Don't Believe In Love I Don't Believe In Love

This is probably my second favorite song. Geoff Tate is brilliant. His amazing 4 octave range is so impressive. It sends chill's down my spine and the hairs on my arms stand up. Please check out some of these songs.

The best song they have in my opinion, Geoff Tate has a wonderful voice. It should be in top five on this list/

This song earned them a Grammy nomination and they deserve it because they made good music.

Do we ever, ever really know

12 The Lady Wore Black The Lady Wore Black

This is the song that put them on the Metal Map... Too bad they don't remember it! They need to get back to the early days of mind blowing lyrics and performance.

14 Another Rainy Night

Not their normal type of song, but this song is AMAZING! Come on, I can't listen to Queensryche without listening to this song. It relates back to their home town of Seattle, and the feeling in this song is great! Queensryche at it's best if you ask me.

15 Roads to Madness Roads to Madness

This is the ultimate Queensryche epic, better than "Suite Sister Mary" in my opinion, should definitely be much higher! - petrucci75hammet

Absolutely LOVE this song... Any Operation Mindcrime song could be #1 but this one should be way up on the list! - SociallyxxDistorted

17 The Killing Words The Killing Words
18 Walk In The Shadows Walk In The Shadows

Rage for Order is my favorite Queensryche album. I'd have I Only See in Infrared and London on this list too.

Mine too. Every Song is a best of song! Best album ever. We Are Rebellion or Neue Regel and and and!

19 Breaking the Silence Breaking the Silence

Top 10 for sure. Come on and get it up there!

I think this should be higher on the list. This song rocks!

Maybe not queensryches most epic but start to finish, minute for minute their best rocker period.
