Greatest Silverchair Songs

The Top Ten

1 Tomorrow

Undoubtedly the no1 track of silver chair's Discography Collection!

classic aussie tune. best silverchair song by a mile.

I don't know what to say... I just couldn't agree more... This is probably the best chair song ever...

PLEASE LET ME VOTE FOR THEM ALL! Tomorrow shows such promise, with poignant lyrics, impeccable vocals and full-on hardcore instruments. LONG LIVE THE CHAIR!

2 Emotion Sickness

Neon Ballroom makes me cry. Since I consider it silverchair's last good album, it showcases the band's lyrics and vocals at their strongest.

Very technical song that combines many musical aspects. By far the most beautiful of Silverchair songs.

Gorgeous song... The first time I really understood that Daniel Johns wanted to take his song writing skills to a new level.

Probably the most complicated song-writing in a silverchair song and for me by far the best.

3 Ana's Song (Open Fire)

Beautifully written song with a lot of meaning.

Love everything about this song! It makes me happy every time I hear it. Definitely my favourite silverchair song!

This song gets me every time I listen to it, by far the best silverchair song!

This might be my favorite song PERIOD. So much passion and pain in it. Amazing.

4 Straight Lines

Absolute banger

This is an inspirational song about walking confidently and clearly thorugh life, it describes Daniel Johns, their lead singer to a tee.

This is by far their best song no doubt! Its different from other mainstream rock songs and yet it's so melodic

I remember singing this song when I was 4 years old. The best

5 Miss You Love

This one, together to Ana's song and emotion sickness, sure are the best

Amazing song, it made me relaxed.. I loved silverchair, I liked alternative musics! ' - michaelafan

It's an amazing perspective on love
I love the way you love, but I hate the way I'm supposed to love you back.

Puta, this song should be in number 1. tomorrow, at 2

6 Freak

Love This song

One word, amazing

This song is an awesome grunge track! The vocals sound close to kurt cobains the heavy use of the crash during the verses gives this song a heavy grunge feel! Surely one of the best 90's songs. - dragon13304

Awww, this is brilliant! So catchy, and the video, if you haven't watched it, is AMAZING!

7 After All These Years

This song is so personal and magical to me, it is my therapy. I suffered from Anorexia Nervosa and Depression for most of my adolescence and this song just helped me so much to let go of "all the troubled times" just as Daniel did. So emotional and honest. Makes me love Daniel Johns all the more

Legendary song

8 The Greatest View

What a great mixture of different genres within the one song. Silverchair's best ever chorus in my opinion

Just a wonderful song, with a wonderful tune

9 Anthem for the Year 2000

Such an uplifting and inspiring track. Really shows their talent.

Driven, simple, effective, emotional
Grunge at it's best

Great song!

As 'the youth' I would like to say they capture that angsty, rebellious feel perfectly. Hands up those who want silverchair to lead the revolution? *RAISES HAND*

10 Israel's Son

Better than half the damn list lmao

I'm under 20 years old (13) and think this is the best song. It's just so meaningful, it shows a really mature view on the atrocities of war.

I can't believe this song isn't #1 or #2? What the heck are you guys listening to? The only thing I can gather from this is everyone on here is 20 years old or less

Street Fighter Animated Movie.

17 Suicidal Dream

This song gets such bad press because of the lyrics. They don't understand it's about teen depression, not Daniel feeling like that. It saved my life.

18 Roses

The best song for me I love its lyrics I alway cry when I listen this nice song

This song is really amazing I don't understand why people don't konw it for me is the best song of Silverchair and Grunge. Its lyric is really amazing and its beat is like a song from the heaven

19 Learn to Hate

The loud/soft dynamic just makes this song

Someone has to vote for it

20 Tuna In the Brine

Brillant song. A piece of art.

27 One Way Mule

How is this song not in the top 3? How is tomorrow and Freak in there? Because they were on the radio? One of the top 3 best bands in the 1990's should get more love than this.
