2 Liar (It Takes One to Know One)

Liar is really a Taking Back Sunday classic. Why has no one vote for it but me? Deserves to be higher. This song is my favorite of Taking Back Sunday.

My favorite line is "I'm an addict for dramatics, I confuse the 2 for love" so deep!

3 Cute Without the 'e' (Cut from the Team)

This is like picking your favorite kid, but when I'm at a TBS show I am most excited to scream out the words to this song. "HOW ABOUT I'M OUTSIDE OF YOUR WINDOW! "

The original, the first #1. Cute Without the E is everything Taking Back Sunday was/is/will be.

Such a relatable song with a catchy beat and memorable lyrics

Should be number one!

4 My Blue Heaven

This needs to be at least in the top 5 somewhere. This song is so intense and amazingly well done and can't be this wasn't already on here yet.

My favorite song, closely followed by This is All Now

This song must be on the top 3!

5 A Decade Under the Influence

This is the best song made by Taking Back Sunday. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

I got a bad feeling about this

Truly the best. True to who TBS is, and always gets me going. - Nolbear37

This is everything that is great about TBS

6 Spin

Great composition overall and back and forth dueling vocals. Strong riffs, solid drumming, powerful bass. I love most of taking back sunday songs but this is probably the only song or the one that gets me pumped up the most, has some softy interlude as well so it explodes again, it's just so good.

What 24th? This has to be a joke

LOL, Makedamnsure at 1st and Spin on 37? You have got to be insane. Spin has more energy, more vocals, more riffs, more drums, more screams, the best chorus of all time, and a bloody bridge to an explosive ending. - Undresser

Undresser is right. Seriously one of the best songs of the Louder Now Album.

7 Number Five with a Bullet

The duo's harmony was incredible in this song!

Guys lets get this song to number 5!

8 Flicker, Fade

Absolute best song I've ever heard in my life. Tune enhances the lyrics and it's just awesome

Perfect song. From the intro to the end it builds so well

9 It Doesn't Feel a Thing Like Falling

Awesome driving riff pairs well with the drum beat

10 What's It Feel Like to Be a Ghost?

The Contenders

11 You're So Last Summer

This song is the utter epitome of what "emo" music is defined as: poignant lyrics and heart-on-sleeve vocals; this song delivers both in spades. For me, this song should be #2. From the chorus ("And all I needed to know is that I'm something you'll be missing.. Maybe I should hate you for this; never really did ever quite get that far") to the verses before and after it ("You could slit my throat, and with my one last gasping breath, I'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt," and "If I'm just bad news, you're a liar"), this song is essentially emo, and Taking Back Sunday at it's finest. Definitely should be #2. - BDavis

Should be in the top three, amazing song.

So catchy and emotional song. It's my favourite TBS song and one of my favourite songs in general. Also "This Is All Now" is a good one but I love "You're So Last Summer" more.

Personally I don't like 'Tell All Your Friends' as much as their other albums, but this is an epic song! With 'Sad Saviour' coming a close second

12 Faith (When I Let You Down)

The lyrics are absolutely on point and if you don't literally feel"taken back" when this song starts playing then you truly don't have an emotional bone in your body and you really don't know or like Taking Back Sunday. Real talk

13 Divine Intervention
14 Miami
15 Timberwolves at New Jersey

The screams really make the song. First time I heard it I was taken by surprise but grew to love it!

You can't make them want you; they're all just laughing

I felt that this is great about the whole TBS vs Brand New, plus I was having a falling out with a friend and this brought us back together

16 Better Homes and Gardens
17 You Know How I Do

By far their best song.


18 One-Eighty By Summer

"She says live up to your first impression, well my best side was your worst invention" Surely one of the best songs, such power in the voice, makes you feel as him.

19 Your Own Disaster

Needs to be in top 10

Best song of tbs for me. Its Adams best vocals so far, and I lurv the last part where John & adam sing altogether its pure awesomeness

20 El Paso
21 Set Phasers to Stun

Listen to this before or during any workout. Great song to get pumped up to.

22 Sad Saviour
23 Great Romances of the 20th Century
24 You Got Me

Should be in top 5

25 Ghost Man on Third

This very emo song...
I like this because touch my heart when listening it...
So good for TBS!

Best song on tayf

26 Everything Must Go

You could say that their 2009 record were so not-TBS sounding or whatever but the closing track is one of their best!

27 Error: Operator
28 This is All Now

My 2nd favorite song, 2nd only to My Blue Heaven

This is amazing. It grows on you and what it does, it's your jam for life

29 New American Classic

This song got me hooked on Taking Back Sunday, it should at least be in the top ten.

30 Sink Into Me

I had this song on repeat for like two weeks. I still do actually...

This is my all time favorite song

How could this NOT be on here! It's like my second favoite song after make damn sure,

31 Swing

Seriously? This song is a masterpiece. It's not MakeDamnSure, but it's impressive! "Lover lover, on your fence. Bat your eyes, ball a fist and swing before you leave."

32 They Don't Have Any Friends

The first one I've heard from them. Still the best.

33 Summer, Man
34 Bonus Mosh Pt. II
35 Call Me In the Morning

I think this is a great song. I wonder why it's so low on this list...

Such a great song. Sometimes their new(er) stuff is just as timeless as their classics. Exhibit A

36 Best Places to Be a Mom
37 Cut Me Up Jenny

This song is very catchy and has one of the best transitions from baritone to alto I've ever heard. - Undresser

Yoo this song gives me so much nastalgia, so upbeat, how's it not up higher on the list man

38 Capital M-E

Simple and one of the best...

39 Twenty-Twenty Surgery
40 In the Middle of It All
41 There's No 'I' in Team

It’s a sin that this is the last song on the list... - Ronuh

42 Where My Mouth Is
43 The Blue Channel
44 Suburban Home
45 Sleep
46 Nothing at All

By far the best TBS song, in my opinion.

47 Stood a Chance

One of their catchier tunes

48 We Were Younger Then
49 Up Against (Blackout)
50 I'll Let You Live
