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.
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."

Best song ever hands down. Your argument is invalid

2 Ocean Avenue

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!

I first heard this song when I was in first grade, before I barely knew what music was. I fell in love with it, it quickly became my favorite song. To this day, it is still my favorite. It's amazing.

It's a really good song. Very rhythmic, creative with a good ending and the fact that Ryan sung very well in this song, this song should be the best song.

This song makes me feel nostalgic and free.

3 Way Away

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

Definitely top ten. Good violin intro and a really catch chorus.

Best song Yellowcard ever made. Period. I mean all of their songs are just plain AWESOME, but this one right here tops them all.

Perfect blend of clean and hardcore

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!

Love it

Coolest song ever... You can just go all out on this song... It can really set the mood

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

I dunno why I chose this... but it has some sort of coolness inside :P

Easily Yellowcards coolest song!

6 For You, and Your Denial

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.

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

7 Sing for Me

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

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..

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.

Yes, it's the bestie.

9 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!

10 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

Love this song so much! This got me into yellowcard. can't go wrong with this song. Should be number 1

11 Light Up the Sky

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

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

12 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.

What?!?! This song is like heaven! How is it not higher up?!

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.

Powerful, raw, relateable, perfect album opener

14 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

A tale of holly wood, losing yourself and the city's intoxications, truely powerful instrumental with some of my favourite violin dancing around the track, one of yellowcard's best songs purely from the emotion it can evoke

15 One Bedroom

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

16 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, !

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 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.

19 Life of a Salesman

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

20 Gifts and Curses

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.

This should be at the top I guess

21 A Place We Set Afire
22 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

23 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

24 Grey

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

25 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 was really great

26 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

27 Sleep In the Snow

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

Is a really beautiful song

28 Rest in Peace
29 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.

30 Everywhere

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

31 Firewater

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

32 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!

33 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.

34 Fix You

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

35 With You Around
36 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


37 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

38 Powder
39 Rough Draft

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

40 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

41 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.

42 Be the Young

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

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

Absolutely love this song!

This song defines yellowcard! It's easy top 10

43 Rivertown Blues

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

44 See Me Smiling

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

45 Lift a Sail
46 Big Apple Heartbreak
47 Shrink the World

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

48 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!

49 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

50 Afraid

Why is this down here?

So amazing
Much best song ever
Very great
