Best Songs From the Band Brand New

My favourite band of all time is Brand New, so I'm compiling a list of their best songs.

The Top Ten

1 The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot

My personal favourite of Brand New's, from the lyrics to the soft guitar. And, baby if you're depressed listen to this, feel bad for whoever this is about.

"You are the smell before rain, you are the blood in my veins". My favorite song.

Purely Beautiful. Gives me shivers every time I listen to it. 10/10

I cry every time I hear this song. Poetry.

2 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ

"And I will die all alone. And when I arrive I won't know anyone."

"Well Jesus Christ I'm not scared to die, I'm a little bit scared of what comes after."

Well, I love every single song of Brand New, but if I have to choose one, I'll pick this one.

This song is my current obsession. The emotions are so raw.

Without a doubt the greatest lyrics that have ever been written

3 You Won't Know You Won't Know

I love the simple yet hauntingly melodic intro and the sudden switch from mellow to heavy that Brand New do so well! Just a class song that is one of my favourites!

So good, displays everything that I've ever loved about Brand New into one song.

This song is perfect. It captures both sadness and anger with lyrics that are so poignant. Makes me cry. Beautiful.

First heard this song on Stargate Universe and now I'm hooked on Brand New.

4 At the Bottom At the Bottom

"I stole bricks from the dam almost every day
Now I'm drowning in the flood I made
Explain myself to me on the other side
I'm gonna want some answers when I die"

A hauntingly beautiful metaphor in those first two quoted lines. This song is one of the best on Daisy.

5 The Quiet Things that No One Ever Knows The Quiet Things that No One Ever Knows

Very underrated song, good band, deserves more attention - Shake_n_Bake13

I like this song but I'm thoroughly disappointed that the song Guernica isn't on here. Too bad. I'

6 Limousine Limousine

Just.. Everything about this song is incredible..The lyrics, the back story.. The horror and emotion in this song compares to no other..

"I saw our sad Messiah.
He was bored and tired of my laments.
Said, "I died for you one time, but never again""
When I heard this, I was instantly hooked.
The raw emotion, the hauntingly beautiful instrumental, the horror. This song is a masterpiece

The story, the emotion, the music. It's all there and it's all heartbreakingly amazing

This song has so much depth to it. It seems like I hear something new every time I listen to it. It also shows how well the band makes all the parts fit together.

Such a powerful song, amazing poetic lyrics. It's been my favourite for over a year and I still enjoy listening to it as much as I did the first time.

Best chorus ever. The energy is unbelivable. Listening for last 6 months and still not bored.

8 Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades

How is this masterpiece not on the list! Come on people

This song needs to be further up, I mean come on - DIE YOUNG AND SAVE YOURSELF

This song is a masterpiece.. And I think we can all relate to it. DIE YOUNG & SAVE YOURSELF!

Amazing lyrics. And the bass line is sex.

9 The Archer's Bows Have Broken

Great song. One of my all time favorites.

Should definitely be higher!

10 Okay I Believe You, but My Tommy Gun Don't Okay I Believe You, but My Tommy Gun Don't

"I am heaven sent, don't you dare forget. " And with those words I instantly fell in love with Brand New.

This is my favorite, the lyrics are genius and it should honestly be higher

Greatest song of all time - by any band!

? Sowing Season (Yeah) Sowing Season (Yeah)

Just the chorus, the "yeeeeeeeeah" may be the best chorus ever written.

"I'm not your Friend! I'm not your lover! I'm not your family! YEAH! "

Very addictive song. Good buildup and very unique chorus. And good finishing too. This will surely be one of the better alternative tracks you will come accross.

I think it's their best song!

The Contenders

11 Guernica Guernica

Oh man, the beginning pulls you in with those drums. But the emotion and intensity in it is overwhelming. Plus, it has Jesse's genius lyrics. Overall, should be way higher

12 Noro Noro

If these lyrics don't give you chills, then you should stop listening to music.

13 Not the Sun Not the Sun

"You've set on me, but you are not the Sun." Beautiful lyrics and sound. A great addition to any Brand New playlist.

14 Millstone Millstone

Yeah that's it awestruck

15 Daisy Daisy

Why is this not in the top ten? One of the saddest songs in the history of sad songs. And the best of brand new in my opinion

16 Sink Sink

Daisy is their best album, and this is one of their best songs period. A lot of people don't like their new stuff because they want to remain in the "Soco Amaretto Lime" days, but those days are gone. This is their best work to date.

It's difficult to even vote on this list. Brand new hasn't released a song that I don't love.

Great song if you're not afraid of a little hard core... Also every song from every album is good except some from daisy the alb.

17 Handcuffs Handcuffs

A song with little to no music, but rather Jesse Lacey singing to a natural melody, still one of my favourites.

First song I ever heard by them a couple years ago, been hooked ever since

How can you not love the background violin?.

18 Mix Tape Mix Tape

Why is this all the way to the bottom, this song sends me shivers up my spine

19 You Stole You Stole
20 Play Crack the Sky Play Crack the Sky

Play crack the sky seems to be a tale of my previous relationship. I relate to nearly every word, and it sends me through a whirlwind of different emotions as each line forces me to recall memories that relate to it. It's one of my favorite songs, and one I will always relate to my first love.

Such a gorgeous song. Best line:
What they call love is a risk, cause you'll always get hit out of nowhere by some wave and end up on your own.

"NEED YOU LIKE WATER IN MY LUNGS" guys this song lyrics are so icredible, this should be at least under the top tens
