The Top Ten

1 Only One

I let go. Scream my Lungs out to try to let it GO. This is the ONLY ONE. TOP 1.

only one place. only one place... i.e. no:1

In an interview with MTV News in May 2004, Yellowcard vocalist Ryan Key revealed that a riff for "Only One" was discovered by accident.
IT DOES ACCIDENTALLY AMAZING!
He said, "We were testing something else out and just tracked it right away. We then added a drum loop to it and just kept adding tracks. We built it track by track in the studio, and we've never really done that before." Key also noted that the song was based on one of his previous relationships; "It was a weird breakup. It was one of those where I felt like I had to do it, even though she didn't do anything wrong. I just needed some space to figure life out for a while on my own. And I think that's what the song says."

The first time I've heard this song is the acoustic version and I love it! I've heard the original version which is also great! Well, I have to vote for this one because it's my favorite song by yellowcard!

2 Ocean Avenue

That's a very good song. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

This song makes me feel nostalgic and free.

YEAH! This song should be number one by a long shot. The instrumentals to this song are awesome and the lyrics. This may be the best break up and make up song ever!

This is the best song EVER! Should totally be #1.

3 Way Away

Number 14?! Are you serious, this song is their best! Incredible intro., bass, vocals... Everything about this is amazing!

Love it

How am I supposed to feel about the things I've done?
I don't know if I should stay or turn around and run
I know that I hurt you, things will never be the same
The only love I ever knew, I threw it all away

When I'm about to cry, I just listen to this awesome song...

Its just the best song I've ever heard..
Listen it when you down, and the song will raise you up..

The Intro Was Great! And Throughout The Whole Song, Its Just AWESOME!

5 For You, and Your Denial

The beginning gets me every time, perfectly showcases the violin mixed with punk rock sound that Yellowcard is known for

This is one of the best songs I have ever heard and its one of my favourite all time. I think it deserves to be number 1 or 2. Because everything about this song is simply amazing!

A 20-hour flight halfway across the world. Bored. Go to music selections. Best song I've ever heard on an airplane. Hell, this song is just purely incredible and magnificent.

The amazing violin solo, the catchy lyrics and incredible beat make this an awesome and all-time great song in Yellowcard history.

Haven't stopped loving this song since I heard it on Burnout Revenge. You can't get this out of your head! Love it.

7 Empty Apartment

Seriously? This song is so awesome.. It's the song that actually made me fall in love with yellowcard in the first place.. People should start appreciating good music instead of the just the most popular singles..

Yes, it's the bestie.

This song should at least be on top5. Their work on rhythm, bass and violin sections is just too perfect... Every time you listen to this song, it makes you cry. But at the end, you say with a smile, "this is what I call music. " :-)

This song is so deep, it just speaks volumes even though it's so quiet. One of my favourite Yellowcard songs for sure.

8 Sing for Me

A very uplifting and inspiring song which does a good job of reminding you not to give up on life, no matter how hard you have things! Great song!

Such an inspirational song! Especially if you watch the official music video for it. It's all about staying positive even though you may be going through difficult times. Just persevere, work hard, and you'll make it through. I love listening to this song whenever I need motivation.

Was searching high and low for the perfect song for the Father Daughter dance at my wedding. I was obsessed with Yellowcard as a kid, and decided to see if anything would work. I listened to this song and tears started rolling down my face. It describes my relationship with my dad perfectly!

One word sums it up: Beautiful. There's no other way to describe it, and every die hard Yellowcard fan knows this. Them, and this song, are perfection

9 Here I Am Alive

I know this may sound lame but this is the first song I've heard of Yellowcard and so far this is the most memorable song so far. I love the tune. I love the beat. I love everything about this song. Should definitely belong in the Top 10

Oh my god! This song is so good It really picks you up when you feel down. For me it's an inspirational song and it has absolutely great lyrics and great tune! Just listen to it and see what you think because this song should definitely be in the top ten! Please vote an get this to numbe one!

By far my favourite, should be higher but that's my opinion.

10 Light Up the Sky

What a Song! I love it, I can get new motivation from this song

Ah! This is like my #1 favorite song by them I think this one should be in the top 5!

How come this song is not even in the top 10? should be at least top 3 after ocean avenue and only one dude..

How come this song isn't number 1?! It's amazing hands down

The Contenders

11 Fighting

How is this not number 1? The only song that could possibly be considered higher than this song is Ocean Avenue because this song is highly addictive. This song is at least top three material!

This is truly one of the best songs from the early 2000s, not just by Yellowcard, by any band. It pumps me up and gets me excited!

I just had to vote this one up, although I was very tempted to go for Gifts and Curses, that probably their one, complex layered song. But I honestly like this song better than Ocean Avenue. Anyone who hasnt heard this, obviously check it out

Personally, best yellow card song! "I said I'm alright, but I know how to lie"you should go look it up. Amazing song

12 Rough Landing, Holly

Just the perfect song...!
Love the lyrics too. Should be up on the list man...

We came down to watch the world walk by
And all she found was trouble in my eyes
From the sky, she pulled me down tonight
Let her go!

Insane intro sets the tone for the whole song. Definitely top 3 material.

Guys seriously this one should be on the top of the list because it's an awesome song & it contains an awesome lyrics

MY FAVORITE SONG

Rough landing holly is a mix of a crazy stuff song with a hint of a bit of love in it too.

13 Awakening

This Song... It was great. Awakening is a song that gives me energy, power. It is a song that makes me believe I can go on, even when everything around me tells me it is impossible. This song may not be the one with most meaning, or even the best lyrics. But it is the one that speaks to the raw stream of energy inside you, that makes you get out of your bed and face another day. And that is what music SHOULD do to you.

This song is so underrated this should be much higher, it has great lyrics and the beat is so powerful and catchy!

COME ON PEOPLE! This song is perfect!
How can this not be in the top 10? This song speaks to my soul. From the moment I heard the first note, I loved it. It's catchy, exploding with talent and power, Yellowcard's ultimate best song.

I have loved this song since the first time I heard it in a video. Sooo good! You can never get over it!

14 Believe

Needs to be way higher on the list, I'm sorry guys. The other songs are wonderful, but this song tops all. It's deep with the great violin and vocals, you can't go wrong with this one

It's beautiful, you know? This song got me into Yellowcard. Just listen to it. The lyrics are so meaningful and the song is so catchy. And the guitar playing is just epic.

This song was the reason I started listening Yellowcard.

Just awesome and should be on top 5 at least.. Lyrics just wow!

15 One Bedroom

The electric solo at the end is incredible. Lyrics are catchy. Great Stuff

16 Shadows and Regrets

... This song at under 30? Man Just listen to it once! For me, it's top 5 material. Alt Rock at its best!

What a chorus. The tune of the song is just awesome. You can't stop singing this one

This song is awesome and I just love it

Amazing lyrics. Nice acoustic guitaring. Amazing Song. Deserves top 10.

17 Ten

If this song doesn't end up getting top ten, I will be thoroughly surprised. This song made me cry. It was the highlight of Southern Air for me. Not only is it beautiful, but it is moving.

This song is so emotional but original. Not a cliche song about a relationship, but a unique beautiful one about a miscarriage

Such a beautiful and really sad though. - OasisFeelsLove

18 A Place We Set Afire
19 Life of a Salesman

I relate so much to this song. My dad showed me a photo of myself when I was little standing on the beach and how precios that moment was to him. I miss him a lot.

This song is flat out great, instrumentals are crazy and make me wanna jam laugh out loud

20 Sleep In the Snow

I can't believe this is so low.. Such a great song.

Is a really beautiful song

21 Always Summer

This is the best song ever! It has the best violin solo I've ever heard. This is a really fast and fun, upbeat song. This is my #1!

Great Violin Solo.. Something that you don't hear in pop rock genres... Great and unique style.

IT'S ALWAYS SUMMER IN MY HEART AND IN MY SOUL, GET INTO IT!
It was really great

22 Rest in Peace
23 Gifts and Curses

The only reason this is down here is because people don't realize it was by yellowcard these days

Gifts and curses.. Down here?... Yellowcard's BEST song ever.. I guess you people did not listen to this song

This song deserved better position because it added in the spiderman 2 film soundtrack album by the way..

Love EVERY BIT of the song... Deserve to be in top 2... Not down here please.

24 Fix You

I know coldplay's fix you is better. But yellowcard have a better singer.

25 Holly Wood Died

Fantastic track with a brilliant outro for the whole album.

This song is the best song by them, because it has an epic guitar part, an epicly incredible chorus, a guitar solo, which is rare for them, and an incredible outro that left me waiting for the next album.

Accidents out on the highway... What a voice. I am totally spoiled by this song

26 Grey

Very good song. Hear this and you will get to know why it is above ocean avenue

27 Hang You Up

Too bad this song is not popular, it's actually a really good song, I recommend people to listen this.

Reminds me of my little friend. It totally describes my relationship with him

This song is very relaxing to hear. I love it

This song deserves to be in top 5

28 Five Becomes Four

In this song is something special, try to listen to it more times, look at the lyrics and you'll find it great...

This song goes to me ex. The lyrics describe exactly how I feel. It's a must-listen for all Yellowcard fans.

My favourite Yellowcard song for sure. It is just so catchy! This is the song that first got me into Yellowcard.

29 The Takedown

Holy Moly! I started air drumming so hard when I first heard this song that I almost crashed my car! The first track on one of their most underrated albums, this is easily one of their best! The drums and the grittyness of the guitar just proves Yellowcard is still the greatest!

This is very cool songs, !

30 With You Around
31 Dear Bobbie

How is this song not even on the list?! Dear Bobbie is a powerful elderly love song, it's definitely my favorite song ever, let alone by Yellowcard. Give it a listen!

Wow this song should not be this low on this list.

My favorite song, I want love like this song

32 Powder
33 One Year, Six Months

I can't believe this hasn't made the list yet. This could be in the top ten easily

This should definitely be in the top ten. This song is just incredible.

Just beautiful, anyone who's maintained good thoughts about an ex can feel this song

Beautiful

34 City of Devils

In a city of devils we live...
Flying alone and I feel like I don't belong...

Gahhh this song is perfect!

35 Rough Draft

Only true yellowcard fans understand this masterpiece. This song probabaly isn't number 1 since gifts and curses and ocean avenue are so good but it deserves the credit. It's powerful

How is this song not on here? Come on Yellocard fans.

36 Transmission Home

With souring guitars, and a soothing piano bridge. This song showcases a more mature sound for yellowcard. It is the best song of Lift a sail, and arguably is their best post hiatus track.

that riff

37 Firewater

Amazing song, unbeliavable that its not in top ten, way better than lights and sounds!

38 Keeper

Appropriately quiet/loud intro and great buildup.
The first 70 seconds will have you loving this song.

I really think that this song should be at least be in the top 20's

What a start!. This is my alarm. What a nice way to wake up.

39 View from Heaven

How is this not even listed yet? It's catchy and uplifting, and still conveys the message about wishing to have a loved one back. The lyrics are amazingly powerful: "I really wish I got to say goodbye... I hope that all is well in heaven, because it's so shot to hell down here. " It also features a beautiful female harmony, several awesome guitar fills, an extremely fun (to play) drum beat, and of course plenty of impressive violin. This song is seriously being overlooked!

This is an amazing song. Really good song to relate to if you've lost a loved one.

Powerful, and the second half gives you chills

40 Be the Young

43? Dear lord!... This song is just and epic travel with insanely good guitar and violin riffs and that nostalgia feeling...top 5 without a problem!

My God... 41? Seriously? Is top ten material without doubt maybe not Top 3 but definitely need to be higher! Since starts you know it's a different song, powerful lyrics and brilliant melody

Absolutely love this song!

This should be 39 spots or so up from here. Why isn't it getting votes?!

41 Lift a Sail
42 See Me Smiling

Makes me think a lot, great song.

Such an inspirational song, keeps me moving when this song comes on

43 Rivertown Blues

Lp absolutely owning the drums here, he gets so soft in the verse and controls the entire song

44 How I Go

My favourite song... Really emotional and the instrumental combination is sublime

Reminds me of Big Fish

How could this NOT be in someone's top 10?! Natalie Maines is amazing in this!

45 Everywhere

By far one of my favourite songs, million times better than the original.

46 Miles Apart

Underrated. This should be number 10 or so

One of my favourites on Ocean Avenue! - strawberryfields

This song allways touches my heart, I dedicate them to my parents when I had to leave, and I used it for a slideshow with all our lives togethe. Best yellowcard song ever.

47 Back Home

The most amazing Yellowcard song. From the soft sounds to the louder more intense parts, it conveys such an amazing tone of loneliness and emptiness that it really aids in those times.

When you are away from your hone for a long time and after comimg home you get a relaxed feeling. This song exactly gives you that

48 Shrink the World

The lyrics are loud and clear. A very solid song. Much better than their 90's garbage

49 Telescope

Just a beautiful melody, certainly in my top 5. This song grew on me so well and it is the flagship of Southern Air

Listening to it right now

50 Afraid

Why is this down here?

So amazing
Much best song ever
Very great
