Best Shinedown Songs

The Top Ten

Second Chance Second Chance Cover Art

I loved this song because I beileve in second chances and I want a second chance in my life and I want it so bad I can taste it. So in all of my heart, this song is the best song of shinedown's career so far and I loved it so freaking much it make me cry. So thank you Shinedown for make me believing in second chances and god bless your souls Shinedown. God bless your souls.

Epic song from Shinedown. Very inspiring song and it is so beautiful which describe me completely! I hope Shinedown makes more wonderful songs which will inspire us all.

Obviously the best! It's a song with a great meaning, a good beat, and really deep lyrics. All that played in my house when I was little was shinedown, so this song has always stuck with me.

Funny thing is Brent hated this song when he wrote it and it barely made the cut to be on the album. Imagine if instead of Shinedown's most popular song, this was a bonus track at most.

Diamond Eyes Diamond Eyes Cover Art

Shinedown is my all time favorite band and Diamond Eyes is my all time favorite song. From Brent Smiths unbelievable vocals to some great guitar playing from Zach Myers and the phenomenal pace in the song, it is a song that is sure to blow your mind and is gonna get you pumped up.

I have always been a fan of 80's anthem arena rock songs. This reminds me so much of that! Powerful catchy hook with 'Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom', a build up before the chorus, and a chorus that you just wanna punch your fist into the air and sing it with them. Plus that guitar solo was BADASS

Like I know Second Chance is a great song and all, but just cause it's their most popular song doesn't mean it's the best. Diamond Eyes just packs so much more of a punch, it's been my favorite for years now.

My favorite song from Shinedown. Great rhythm, lyrics, and meaning. It will really get your blood pumping!

Sound of Madness Sound of Madness Cover Art

Another lose cannon gon bi-poler slipped down couldn't get much lower quicksand's got no sense of humor I'm still laughing like hell. You think your crying to me looking so sorry that I'm gonna believe you've been infected by a social diszes, well then TAKE YOUR MEDISEN. love this song.

I saw this song live at xfest 2008. That was the first time I heard shinedown and it was amazing! Definitely deserves first or at least second. The lyrics are inspirational to me every time I hear the song. Basically this song fking rocks!

Love the sound of this song. It makes me feel empowered at times. I absolutely love listening to this song, especially when I'm frustrated at someone. It is simply amazing!

THIS SONG IS THE BEST! I just try it when I saw it in youtube one click the song starts and I really love it! Must be the number one!

What a Shame What a Shame Cover Art

Not a popular song but I think it is Shinedown's best. Very emotional, true, great guitars, the best of the high and low from Brent. This should be #1 and all others tie for #2. Second Chance is a great song, but the only reason it's #1 on this list is because people who have only heard that song are voting on a topic meant for hardcore Shinedown fans. Sorry, but it's true.

Pathetic list I must say. This is what the top three should look like:

1. 45
2. What A Shame
3. Second Chance

Get it right people, this song is extremely underrated. Listen and vote here.

I've always though this was one of Shinedown's more emotional songs and it will always be my favorite of theirs.

Very emotive. Top vocals and instrumentals. Builds beautifully. Just class

45 45 Cover Art

A few reasons why I voted for it and will again:
1. To raise it above What A Shame. What A Shame is a great song, but shouldn't be anywhere near the top 10.
2. Because it's clearly the best Shinedown song, melody wise and lyrics wise.
3. Because Leave a Whisper is the best album, so I don't want the top 4 to all be from Sound of Madness
Of course I want this at #1, but it'll be hard, as many people who only heard Second Chance vote on this list. Second Chance is great, but REALLY overrated.

It pulls so much emotion from the heart. It makes me think and feel. I love this song so much. Such power and Brets voice set the whole thing off. If you haven't listened to this song don't continue to miss out!

Its such a good song with raw emotion. Brent Smiths voice is just insane and makes you really feel the way the person who staring down the barrel felt

First song by Shinedown I heard a few years ago, and still is my favorite. Also kinda decribes me a bit.

Unity Unity Cover Art

Really helps me when I'm feeling down; very uplifting song. So amazing to see this song live, when the line "put your hands in the air if you hear me out there" comes up everybody in the entire venue puts their hands in the air. It is so amazing and I got goosebumps both times I saw them.

This song is ultimate! Awesome music great singing and a rocking guitar solo, everything a rock song needs. Needs to be in the top 10

The energy throughout this song is just unbelievable. Loved the piano and guitar solos. This song should be at least top 5.

One of the best songs out there today, brings it all back and never gets old. An amazing song

Call Me Call Me Cover Art

No other shinedown song hits me in quite the same way this one does. From gut wrenching lyrics to a beautiful showcase of vocal range. It hits home in every way. Easily their best song.

This is an amazing song that has true meaning behind everything! It helps me forget about everything and leave the world behind me... I hope they stay together for more years to come...

One of the few songs that touched my heart and made me cry..

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, nevermind
God knows I've tried...

Wow

The best song, cannot beat it really. If I was to recommend any song of Shinedown, it would definitely be this one.

The Crow & the Butterfly The Crow & the Butterfly Cover Art

Such a beautiful and moving song, makes me emotional every time I hear it. This isn't, in my opinion, the best song from Shinedown; I love Second Chance and other less well known songs of theirs like Beyond The Sun. But something about this song, a mix of the lyrics, beautiful lead vocals, and raw emotion put into this song make it my favorite. Should be much higher than #11!

An amazing song! It's like Nicole back and Alter Bridge fused to make this song! Definitely love the start of the song which reminds of Nicklebacks early days when Chad Kruger sang Hero but this band also has originality in their sound. Totally love this song!

This song breaks my heart every time I hear it. It got me through a very rough time in my life and I owe so damn much to this song.

This song is actually number 4 for me.. Has a neat little message to it. Nice melody along with that always awesome Shindown hard rock twist... Love it.

If You Only Knew If You Only Knew Cover Art

I love this song x10 for the past 3 years this has been my favorite song. It has been epic in every way and I believe it should conquer this list.

If you only knew.. I'd sacrifice my beating heart before I lose you... Very great and emotional lyric!

Truth! Best shinedown song and didn't make the top ten...

Great song, not too soft, but still has good hook

I Dare You I Dare You Cover Art

I heard the chorus of this song playing--not too loudly--at The Habit restaurant during lunch the other day. I didn't know who the band was (forgive me) so I asked Google on my smartphone, "What song is this? " Google tacitly responded with the animated letters: Listening... In a few seconds, I Dare You, from Shinedown, with the album cover, appeared on the screen. I became an instant fan. Great sound and production, great hooks--and the vocals had me sold with a single chorus.

This Songs is one of their Masterpieces But it gets thrown under the Rug for Some unknown Reason!

The Chorus is this song is amazing With Headphones on Try it I DARE YOU!

Brent Smith's Voice is Amazing and this song Proves that.!

When I used to hear this song on the radio I fell in love with it and had no idea who Shinedown was. I became a fan from this song. This song was the song my hubby and I walked into our reception with! LOVE THIS!

I have been a fan of Shinedown for ever now, the have been there for me when no one else has been there they have, this song is just a masterpiece and like is just absolutely beautiful.

The Contenders

Bully Bully Cover Art

This is one of my favorite songs by shinedown by far! The message is very powerful.. this helped me through my 1st year of middle school. Now I'm homeschooled! Anyway not the point this song is amazing when they scream bully at the Beginning it still gives me chills.. this could help anyone that is getting bullied

This song helps me, and a lot of others as well, to confront their past. This is music at it's best. The lyrics are brilliant, the video is amazing and the guitar riffs are solid. If you don't feel anything after listening to this song, you don't have a heart.

To this day I can't listen to this song without getting emotional, brings back a lot oder demons through powerful riffs and beats and thought provoking lyrics. It's shinedown at its finest and is what shinedown IS, a very deep and provocative band that constantly evolves.

This song is inspirational. It helps me and others to know that we are able to stand against this. We are strong, that is all that matters. It helps us know that we will get through this and that we will be the victorious ones. Not our bullies.

Simple Man Simple Man Cover Art

It's is honestly, to me, one of the best covers of an already well established track in rock I've ever heard. Very easy going, but also sports one of Brent Smith's absolute best vocal performances.

A must listen to for anybody who enjoys great music.

I had to vote for this just to clarify, because some people don't know any music older than themselves, that this is actually a cover of a Lynyrd Skynyrd song... A far inferior cover I might add.

BEST SONG EVER! Its very addicting one of shinedowns best songs the lyrics are amazing so definitely vote this it should be

If this wasn't a cover but an original, then there's no way this shouldn't be number 1

Devour Devour Cover Art

Amazingly amazing... This song really sets the blood pumping!
If you like this, I recommend you listen to "Cyanide Sweet tooth Suicide" and "Sound of Madness"

This has got to be one of the most blood pumping songs by them. I'm in love with it. And its rather sad indeed that its barely number ten

Oh my gosh. I wish I could remember the lyrics because I can't help but sing every word even though I don't know a single one :P

The fastest and most intense song by them. The guitar, drums and bass are all awesome

Cut the Cord Cut the Cord Cover Art

I'm honestly surprised this song is so far down on the list, I thought for sure it would be in the top 5. This song was like 35 for best alternative rock songs ever, so it's funny to see its even lower on a Shinedown only list.

Really? 24, This should be higher...if you haven't heard it, just go listen to it.

Awesome song its newer so not as known as some older hits

This should be way up in top 5

Enemies Enemies Cover Art

This song for me has a great tune, also the Music video was just exemplary, such imagination and originality that the Shinedown band have put into this song, it should be No. 1 by far!

Awesome song off the newest album. It's pure rock and is very addictive. In my opinion, it's shinedown's best

Have you not heard this song yet? No? Well you should, or watch the video

One of the most amazing songs by them in my opinion

For My Sake For My Sake Cover Art

Stop slowing me down, stop holding me up, quit making a scene, enough's enough. Let's be honest, your promise, was never meant to last!
So I'm talking you on, I'm calling you out, there's nothing left for us here now. Let's be honest, I promise, I'm never looking back for my sake!
Amazing lyrics.

Dude This song rocks. The chorus just flows perfectly with the guitar, it is just amazing no doubt about it. This quality of song isn't very much like their others. It feels like the other songs are just fillers for hits like this.

As much as I love all of Shinedown's other songs, this tops all of them by a landslide. This song is perfect... We can all relate to it in some point in our lives. This song deserves number 1!

A perfect song to workout. When I say perfect I mean it. Give this song a listen and add it to your workout playlist

Save Me Save Me Cover Art

This song is just awesome, I can't believe no one commented on it yet. It's so expressive and I can really relate to the lyrics. Not only that, but its one of those songs that will always get stuck in your head.

I can't believe that this song isn't higher. It is amazing beyond words! Lyrics, sound, everything. It's great.

How is this not top ten? Good lyrics and overall great meaning. Read the lyrics and then listen to it.

A deep song for sure. It proofs that Brent's voice is pretty and beautiful ( because it's true)

I'll Follow You I'll Follow You Cover Art

Shinedown's best song. A gut punch right to the feelings. Great melody & lyrics, and the breakdown in the bridge of the song gives me chills every time.

I really like song, because it talks about how we as human beings need each other to hold on, and have someone to count on.

One of the best songs that I've ever heard! Should be in the top ten!

Not just Shinedown's best song, but one of the best songs period!

Amaryllis Amaryllis Cover Art

This song stands the test of time as my favorite song because it applies to many different aspects of my life. And it's about opening up to both other people and myself. I'm debating getting this song's lyrics tattooed. That's how much I love it.

Says so much that is hard to explain

I can't for the life of me understand why this isn't in the top 3. Brent proves once more how awesome his voice is, accompanied with a really catchy chorus. you can't not love this song. the first I heard it, I was blown away! PLEASEEE, LISTEN TO THISSS AMAZINGGG SONGG ANDDD VOTEEE FOR ITT!

Through the Ghost Through the Ghost Cover Art

It deserves top three status. Just awesome song. It's relatively new song but soon it will get it's status.

Beautiful lyrics, haunting instruments, and powerful themes result in a magnum opus for Shinedown

AMAZING SONG, amazing lyrics, great tunes and as usual an amazing voice. this should really appear in the top 10.

This is a relatively new song. But seriously it deserves a top 3 status.Just listen to this song once and decide for yourself.

Her Name is Alice Her Name is Alice Cover Art

So mysterious and empowering. Not a typical shinedown song, my favorite of All time!

Masterpiece, epic, amazing!
Her name is Alice!

Her name is Alice!

Great Rock songs ever!

Should be way higher! Great song

My Name (Wearing Me Out) My Name (Wearing Me Out) Cover Art

This song is amazing. It really has a lot of feeling behind it. Really makes you think. This has to be on the list

My name is worthless like you told me I once was...
My name is empty cause you drained away the love...

30th? Really? This is what got me to listen to the other songs, and I don't think they are as good.

Should definitely be in the top 3 or 5, with Bully. How can this song be so low in the ranking?

Devil Devil Cover Art

Pure hard rock! Not a very lengthy song but it goes HARD!

Fly from the Inside Fly from the Inside Cover Art

First song of their first album. I was transfixed the moment I heard it. The killer opening, Brent's screams, the main riff (which is really fun to play on guitar), the moody verses, the soaring choruses, the heart-stopping bridge, the abrupt ending; simply sensational.

This should be the best song. It has the best mix of vocals, guitars and drums. And really, second chance is at the top, that song is overrated and overplayed. Everyone who voted for the top 10 are casual fans of music

This is insane this is so low. Amazing intro, electrifying chorus and a head banging bridge. My number one anyway.

I love this song so much. It was in my top 10 songs of all time for a very long time.

How Did You Love How Did You Love Cover Art

I think this was the first Shinedown song I ever heard, but I'm not sure. It's incredible; it's very meaningful. I'm quite surprised it isn't higher up. I just love Shinedown.

This song should be higher on the list. I know it's one of the newer ones but it just pulls on your heart strings and makes you want to sing along with it!

I enjoy listening to this song with my wife and friends. All music types will enjoy this song

Brilliant song, One listen and you're hooked.
