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 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Cover Art

Beautiful, captures the strength beauty and weakness of man all at once.

"I know you think that I'm someone you can trust."
"But I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up."
Best 3:am song ever.

"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.

2 Degausser Degausser Cover Art

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.

Makes me want to take apart my head.

dang it, it was at number 2 and now its 4

3 At the Bottom At the Bottom Cover Art

"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.

Truly a classic song

wow, this went up

The sound...the lyrics... this is truly not only brand new's best song, but one of the greatest pieces of art of all time!

4 The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot Cover Art

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.

I don't know why this is #1...

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

5 Noro Noro Cover Art

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

Wow... I'm almost speechless

6 Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades Cover Art

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!

Not sure if I've heard a bad Brand New song. But this is undoubtedly their best.

7 The Quiet Things that No One Ever Knows The Quiet Things that No One Ever Knows Cover Art

Very underrated song, good band, deserves more attention

Classic. Hooked me when I was young. Made me feel young.

"Very underrated. Song is Good"

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

8 Luca Luca Cover Art

I feel like I' being dragged down a trench listening to this (in a good way)

Brand New is my favorite band so it is really hard to choose a favorite song. Luca has to be my favorite because it has about 250 plays on my iTunes. Something very brilliant about this song.

The riff at the end though THAT RIFF AT THE END though

Good God this is my favourite song by Brand New.

9 You Won't Know You Won't Know Cover Art

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!

Incredible instrumental and very haunting lyrics Most importantly, this is their best live performance...the last minute of Jesse Lacey screaming "You Won't Know" in complete and utter despair will leave you in tears.

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.

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

"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

This one is must be much higher.

Greatest song of all time - by any band!

The Contenders

11 Limousine Limousine Cover Art

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

By far their best song, everything about it deserves to be #1.

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

12 Archers Archers Cover Art
13 Millstone Millstone Cover Art

Yeah that's it awestruck

14 Out of Mana Out of Mana Cover Art

Wow, this is brand new? it sounds like a different band (still amazing though)

15 Sowing Season (Yeah) Sowing Season (Yeah) Cover Art

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.

The way he screams "Yeah! " sets me free.

16 Good to Know that If I Ever Need Attention Good to Know that If I Ever Need Attention Cover Art

So underrated

best one

17 Lit Me Up Lit Me Up Cover Art

That song that makes you realize your not afraid of death.

18 Play Crack the Sky Play Crack the Sky Cover Art

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.

The last few lines of the song are absolute genius and give me shivers every time...The entire song itself is using sinking ship to describe past failed relationships.

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

19 Mix Tape Mix Tape Cover Art

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

Come on now 1%?

20 Handcuffs Handcuffs Cover Art

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?.

21 Same Logic / Teeth Same Logic / Teeth Cover Art
22 Seventy Times 7 Seventy Times 7 Cover Art

Very good song off their best album in my opinion

Your favorite wheapon was the greatest album they ever had and the greatest album of all time. Lyrics, harmonies, and just plain good music.


23 Guernica Guernica Cover Art

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

I love brand new thanks



24 Brother's Song Brother's Song Cover Art

By far their most underrated song.

25 Soco Amaretto Lime Soco Amaretto Lime Cover Art

A song that anyone who ever had a good time with their buddies in high school. This song is probably what I always fall back to as my favourite brand new song. It is perfect and I wish this album and especially this song was more appreciated in the eyes of the Brand New fan base and I'm still trying to figure out why it isn't.

Back to the slow, but meaningful songs we go. The lyrics in this ballad blow me away, cause is it good driving music.

This song has many amazing memories for me and my friends. Every time I hear this, memories rush back to me of the greatest summer of my life.
