The Top Ten

1 It's Been Awhile

this is a great song that a lot of people can relate to. It fits me perfect I'm doing things I'm proud of and getting my lfe in order. Now I can "hold my head up high"

It's been Awhile since there has been a song like this in the industry. The vocals takes me to a different world. It suits be irrespective of my mood. Great, Awesome. There is a kind weird numbness in this song

It's Been Awhile and For You are my favorite Staind songs by far trying to choose between them is kinda hard for me.

Not a huge fan of staind but I lik this song

2 So Far Away

Best song easy. Mudshovel at 10 is way to low. I can live with It's been awhile being there top song

This song has helped me so many different times in my life. I can relate to this song time and time again. Staind is awesome! Very real lyrics with an amazing sound!

Best song of theirs, hands down. Makes me really just get lost in memories and thoughts! Even though its an older song now, remember being a teen and listening to it. Love, love, love it!

Simply a beautiful, timeless song. Perfect to relive good memories.

3 Outside

Best song for sure, it is the song that gets their fans going at concerts, probably one of the most emotionally attached songs for the band.

This has to be there greatest song. It relates to a lot of relationships and the rhythm is simply amazing but impacting as well.

Love this song... Makes you think! Everyone relates to the feelings being conveyed!

The Best Song I've Ever Heard From Staind, This Song Takes Me To Another World & When I Listen To This Track I Close My Eyes.

4 Mudshovel

I was really surprised that this wasn't in the top 3, maybe it is too heavy of a song for most people (or at least the ones voting on this list). Either way, I love this song and you listened to other Staind songs and liked them, then this should be on the top of your list as well.

This is by far their best song. The first album was astounding and in my opinion the best. I didn't like when they got softer. When I saw them in concert performing this, the lead singer just walked out into the thrashing mosh pit and sang this entire song with his eyes closed.
No one touched him, but the pit still raged hard.

I was gonna vote for Outside, but I cannot stand by and watch Mudshovel sit out of the top ten. Its such a bad ass song.

After hearing songs like so far away and it’s been awhile, I was a little dissatisfied with what staind appeared to be. I figured they were kind of a generic grungy band like (no offense) Pearl Jam. Then I heard the opening baseline of this song and it sucked me in

5 Right Here

Great lyrics and great song! Every time I hear this song my eyes close automatically and I am transformed to a different world. Cheers!

I believe this song should be number 1. Very powerful meaning with life behind it.

This song is absolutely perfect! The lyrics as well as the chorus just sends chills when you hear it!

This deserves a number 2 or 1 spot

6 For You

For you, Was the first song I heard from my dad. And I liked it, and he said the bands name. Ever since then I've loved this band.

I never get enough of it...never.. - Ananya

7 Fade

This is the first song that I heard of Staind.

Not sure why this wasn't on their greatest hits album, it was one of their best charting songs, and the more requested from that album.

This is my favorite song by them! How is this not number one?

This song can relate to many people for people who don't even bother caring for them and you knoe this song can relate to them and its great song with strong lyrics

8 Zoe Jane

This is definitely their most meaningful song. Lots of them are meaningful, but this one... This one gets me every time.

Somehow Aaron put into words the unconditional love I have for my daughters! And it will always be our song! Thanks Aaron!

Love this song. My husband played it for our daughters

I've crayd whit this amazing song...

9 Everything Changes

This song MUST be in the top three. It is just perfect.

It express perfectly the guilt, the loneliness and the feel of the wasted time that you can't recover with the person that you love.

I can really relate to this song. First sang it to my girlfriend on our 5th anniversary, learned it on guitar in 2 days. The relationship didn't last but I'll never forget what it did for me.

To be honest, this is 1 of the only 2 songs In the entire world that make me break down every time I hear it. It should be number 5 instead of "right here" everything changes should be #5

Means the most to me

10 Eyes Wide Open

How is this not higher on the list! This is defiantly the best song by them, it's so brutal I love the screaming and the sounds of the guitar :D. It's also quite catchy too!

Should be in top 5 what. Bacon. This song is just gorgeous and aggressive

Amazing song. My new favourite. - 05yusuf09

Just an awesome song, love the guitar and pickups.

The Contenders

11 Believe

Love this song! Find myself singing it throughout the day!

Fantastic song! This is in my top 3.

12 Price to Play

Awesome music video, this song kicks the 14 Shades of Grey album in the best possible way. It's one of the heavier ones but that's why it's so good. For You should be next

This song is awesome. It should come after Its Been Awhile, So Far Away, Right Here, Mudshovel and Outside

Staind's best song, in my opinion. Just give it a listen and you'll most likely see why.

How is this here? This is better than It's Been Awhile. Awesome choras!

13 Come Again

you're crazy! this is one of top3 and it's not in the list?! - Teo2390

This song is great & is the only song from tormented to appear on their singles 1996-2006 album.

These guys totally sold out. But they didn't with this masterpeice. Tormented was such a great album.

14 Spleen

This is the epitome of what Staind was supposed to be. A heavy metal band with some melodic elements. Spectacular closing track for Staind's best album.

Heaviest song Staind ever produced. Deserves to be way higher honestly. The raw emotion of it is something special to hear.

This song is on of my favorites from dysfunction along with mudshovel,

Top 10 easy.

15 Not Again

Not Again should be much higher, it's so far the most aggressive Staind song I have heard and shows how great of a comeback they can make, and thank god because music is starting to suck.

Really this song is truly amazing it should at least be in the top 5 it has a great heavy metal sound to it LONG LIVE STAIND

It's the best song from this great rock band for me, I hear this song several times everyday, big song

16 Epiphany

This song and Outside are in the same league, this needs to be top 5 at least!

Emotionally exhausting song, to be truthful it beats zoe jane, come on this should be at least in the top 5, plus this song showcases aaron lewis's vocal range

Every true Staind fans love this song. It deserves to be in top three.

Couldn't resist not voting for this one.

17 Something to Remind You

This must be number one! Great lyrics, this made me listen to staind at first place, no way its down here, at least deserves a top 3 spot!

Depending on where you're at in your life, will determine how this song speaks to you, but no matter the case, it will move you. Aaron Lewis' voice touches me when I listen to this, and for me this would clearly be my number 1. I feel it might be this far down the list, as it is lesser known.

An amazing song... Really touching... It makes me remember a lot of old memories... It deserves to be in top ten

This is my favorite song by them! I love it so much!

26 Suffer

Great riffs and vocal structure in the chorus

Definitely one of my favorite songs by them of all time.

27 Schizophrenic Conversations

Why isn't this song higher up, I mean the lyrics is just so damn clever and beautiful.

Best song Aaron ever wrote.

Brilliant song! just brilliant musically with superb lyrics. I am a big Staind fan and this song is probably my favorite.

28 Failing

This is one of my favorites from their self-titled album. Deserves better ranking.

29 Nothing Left to Say

I agree honestly this song should have been one of their hits it's very different and unique. It's got a slow and sad intro in the beginning and The guitar riffs are sad and they just flow with the song and the overall sad mood that it delivers. It's the most underrated staind song that I have that deserves way more attention and credit that currently has. - Solthor

I love the early staind songs. I prefer the vibe of the older ones. However, THIS SONG IS A BEAST. Very well written and amazingly executed. Gets my vote.

Love it sooo much

37 Falling
38 How About You

Why isn't this way higher!

This should be higer

39 Suffocate
40 Can't Believe

True Staind fans should know... Great song with a deep meaning!

Ohh Hell Naww! This Should Be In the Top Tens
This Is Waht I Call Rock.

41 This is It

Just feel like playing air guitars and sing when I hear this each time. Seriously deserves a spot on the top 10 at least.

What? This song deserves to be in the top 20's at least, this song was one of the first songs that introduced me to staind.

My favorite Staind song

Opening Track on the Album TIOP,Really Rocks Hard,PERFECT CHORUS,EXCELLENT GUITAR BRIDGE! Must Listen!

42 Fill Me Up

How is this song 42nd?

43 Reply

An ode from Staind to his fans. Definitely deserves better ranking.

How is this 42nd? Should be way higher

44 Please

This song is amazing and isn't getting the recognition it deserves on this list. Powerful rhythmically and lyrically. One of their best.

I love this song listen to it at least twice a day!

Best Song Ever!... so powerful letters and the melancholy of the notes make this song in a piece of art, I recommend this song if you have that person that doesn�'t accept you, even if you do everything for him. TOP 5 definitely

45 Yesterday

One of my favorites. How is this not in the top ten?

A great song with a cool drum intro. Followed by a mild hip-hop esque verse with an awesome chorus. Aaron Lewis (vocalist) does an excellent job.

46 Pressure
47 Sober
48 Blow Away

This is absurd this song just about made me tear up it's so deep and emotional talking about the experiences he's faced that have changed him into something he despises and how he doesn't want to be here in this world, and that he's lost so much already

49 Pardon Me

Amazing. Staind is Absolutly Amazing. This song Transcends.
Pardon me while I
Just turn my back
And walk away.
Pardon me if I Can't listen To the things You say. Pardon me if I Can't fake it. While you still believe. Pardon me

50 Cross to Bear

Some one probably made a mistake. This should have been definitely on the list. The riffs, the vocals, the anger, its got it all.

Awesome song!
