Best Children Of Bodom Songs

The Top Ten

Everytime I Die

This is by far their best song... Should be much ahead of angels don't kill

This song sounds much better and has a much more melodic sound to it than most of their songs and that is a good definition of melodic death metal.

By far the best song of children of bodom way better than angels don't kill.. Its amazing the perfection from the combination between the guitar solos and the keyboard. Great job alexey

Melodic death metal at its best...a one of a kind masterpiece

Needled 24/7

Awesome song... Loved it more than any other... Couldn't stop listening to the guitar solo and I might have listened to the song more than a thousand times!

Tears me apart from any kind of music and tells me the truth that COB is the band of Gods

And everyday when the knife in my back starts to twinge n turn
My eyes are catching fire my heart starts to burn
Listening to COB is a bit like being in heaven
And nothing defines COB like does NEEDLED 24/7!

Should be number one. Catchy as hell, amazing solos, and carries so much more energy and power than every time I Die. I listen to this song full blast every morning to wake me up on the way to work. Just kidding I don't have a job... I'm just a stupid kid posting opinions on the internet.

Angels Don't Kill

Awesome track! The best solo and lyrics of COB! Really love this track a lot!

This song, though slow, is their best.. COB is one of my favorite bands. their music is really sweet.. Must-hear band for every metal lover.

Awesome song! Where's Northern Comfort though?! That is definitely in the Top 10 AT LEAST.

Everything about this track, from its lyrics, to tactically arranged rhythms and melodies, all absolute perfection. The combination of the solo and the rhythm behind it works so well together. This track is absolutely haunting, in the best possible way : )

Are You Dead Yet

just hear it once, and your life will change

this is the song that got me into children of bodom when I heard it on the radio

to my enemies with love.. when I first listened to it, my opinion about COBHC TOTALLY CHANGED... now I am one big fan of them

I think this is a Children Of Bodom's masterpiece. Awesome drums, guitars and voice, this is the best Death Metal song I ever heard. Absolutely fantastic!


An absolute classic of Melodic Death Metal, the song that got me into COB, which is one of my favourite bands. A truly headbanging song, as all songs of this album, Hatebreeder is their best album, and where they stood at their best, musically speaking. The riff, the solo, etc... The best solo is undeniably Kissing the Shadows, but this song has to get the cake for being the best COB song, simply amazing!

The best Melodic Black Metal song I've ever heard in my whole life. So atmospheric, melodic, haunting and beautiful. Everything is pure genius, courtesy of Alexi, demonic shrieked vocals, total shred duel solo between Alexi and Janne, the guitar lead of Alexander during the choruses, the pitch change at the end, the little bass bridge of Henkka, the eerie keyboard and lyrics... But the best has to be the piano arpeggios, simple beauty mixed with aggressive drumming and singing... Just pure awesomeness.

The song that hooked me onto COB. Definitely one of their best! Before this I only listened to songs with clear vocals!

Totally awesome, only pure gold melodic death/black metal. Alexi voice was at its extreme harsh not to forget to mention the dual solos as well as the hard continuous double drumming bass.

Kissing the Shadows

The guitar and keyboard play at the end is inexplicable and unmatchable.

The guitar and keyboard duel solo at the end simply makes the song. Never heard anything like it and this is my most played song in my iTunes library, nothing beats it in my opinion!

Good lyrics, best solo of all times. Its the best song ever by anybody. So good. No words can describe this master piece of masterpieces.

The riff throughout the song is better than most other guitarists solo's and the trade off keyboard/guitar work at the end is so awesome it makes me want to eat my own face.

In Your Face

Really cool song. Completely addictive and it's unbelievably coordinated!

just epic, every headbanger should hear it

The vigor, the spirit, the speed and the bluntness are too good! Perfect for any headbanger! It is a real "bitchslap in your face effect". My personal favorite.

I'd vote for either Angels Don't Kill or Every time I die but this song deserves to be higher than at least Needled 24/7

Bed of Razors

Complete Kiss Ass Song.. I headbang to this everyday.. Definitely it deserves to be on top of this list... The guitar in this song is complete orgasm..

The song is amazing in all the way that can be described... It must be rated along with every time I die.. Because the solo and the song are very organized and everything is ultimately perfect at this song.. The song is name is enough to describe how good this song is... The solo and the guitars are very on top.. The lyrics kills... Very great... Words can't describe this song.. The words are dying when I try to describe this song...

Its an every headbanger song... I hear this song everyday. I just can't stop listening to it. I hear it even when I sleep... But I can't believe that its in such a low rank... It deserves to be in the top three...

I dnt understand.. eat kind of choice is dis... bed of razors... is the best.. everyday I hear it... and still it doesn't get old... awesome song

If You Want Peace... Prepare for War

Though this track is not on their best album but it is easily one of their best songs! "If you want peace, prepare for war" is one of the tracks that really me into Bodom! So heavy, so fast, and a very entertaining listen! Right up their with "every time I die"!

Great hard hitting drums at the beginning, amazing guitar solos and such an uplifting spirit!

Goes back and forth between amazing melodic guitar work and crunching chords.

This one is the best and the only death metal song I like

Hate Me

How is this so far done? The Melody alone is exquisite.

The song that got me into CoB! Awesome intro and solos

My favorite COB song by far

19? Needs to be in the top three. Melodic death metal at its very best.

The Contenders

Follow the Reaper

This songs solo says a lot about the band and solidified them as one of my favorites for a long time. In my opinion this song should be at the top for them.

What... I didn't expect this song that low... This was the first song I heard of this band and for me it was totally badass :D For me it should be in the top 10. M/

Dis is One of the Best song by COB... What a solo by The "WILD CHILD" Alexi Laiho... He Is Definitely the best guitarist in the world... I Love This Song

The only song that compares to any in flames song. In flames really has more talent but this song shows that CoB at least has some

Hate Crew Deathroll

This song is at no 17?

Can't believe it!

This song has so much energy, so much melody, pure energy, great combination of keyboards, guitar and drums

The guitar riff bridge is also played what great enthusiasm

My very first song by COB!

You want death metal... Well C.O. B give it to you shoved up your ass six feet under... Some of the best riffs iv heard besting one another and alexi displaying the true sense of a genius! All hail C.O. B!

So much energy on this song one of their best it have to be on the top 5 at least

Lake Bodom

I think
#1 Angels Don't Kill
#2 every time I Die
#3 Lake Bodom
#4 Needled 24/7
#5 Hate Crew Deathroll
#6 Kissing Shadows
#7 Downfall
#8 Trashed, Lost and Strungout
#9 In Your Face
#10 Halo of Blood - Dead Man's Hand On You

I LOVE THIS SONG. Great riff, great vocals, great solo's, great lyrics. One of Bodom's best and will be for years.

Greatest riff in metal. Powerful lyrics. I love how the keyboard plays along with the guitars. A masterpiece.

By far the best from Something Wild, if not their best song ever.

Silent Night, Bodom Night

Its only 3 min.. But fully of intense melody in both leads n rhythm.. Just take 3 min of your life to listen to this.. And you'll see how many hours you'll spend enjoying the music from Bodom! CoB rocks! Sry, metals!

Manages to fit the night very well, especially thanks to the harp solo

One of the best solo I have ever heard. Heads off towards alexi. Come on folks vote it.. It deserves top 3

Extreme melody and rhythm, their best song I my opinion!

Living Dead Beat

Beautiful riffs and keyboard playing along with the amazing lead altogether this song is a magic.

The best intro made ever...

Awesome track with wonderful riffs, great keyboard combination with guitar... awesome solos of both guitar and keyboard...

Simply perfect intro

Bodom Beach Terror

Man! This song should be on the short list of top 10. Good drum intro, good vocals and insane guitar solo in courtesy of the greatest metal guitarist of all time, alexi laiho himself.. This song is brutal!

Wash your hands in the lake of your blood! Just before you die!

the best: the drumming intro and the guitar solo

Spectacular drum intro and good solo, but the best part is by far the chorus. This is certainly my fave COB song, and is the best COB song for partiez.

Trashed, Lost, and Strungout

Fantastic song! I don't see why its not in the top 10. I don't like any songs in the top 10 other than Are You Dead Yet?. One of the best metal songs I've ever heard. And where is Was It Worth It? That's also one of my favorites.
1. Trashed, Lost and Strungout
2. Blooddrunk
3. Was It Worth It?
4. If You Want Peace... Prepare for War
5. Are You Dead Yet?

Such a good song should be in top 5

The song that got me into Children Of Bodom!

Greatest song of all time

The Nail

This song... As well as the whole album "Something Wild" completely rocks.

Black Widow

How is this not in the top ten? This song is very playful and has a touch of Mozart/Bach in it, too. Relatively short, though unbelievably rich in harmony and structure. Easily one of my all time favorite COB songs!

Rage, pain, suffering... Only in one song! Such amazing

Agreed. This amazing song needs more love.

Totally agree
Sincerely, I would say the best song


Far too low down this list!

This and Angels Don't Kill are perfection. The solo gets me every time

Mother of lead guitar!
COB at its very best. All hail Alexi

Some songs are born to be played loudly-real loudly!

Children of Decadence

So much complaining about the song being this low, your talking about a classic band there is going to be at least 25 songs that can be in the number 1 spot

Hey how come this song be at 16..? It should be ranked 1st! This is the greatest metal song I have ever heard in my entire life

Awesome playing and screaming. It should be at least in top five. Because it deserves Alexis efforts to be on top.

How is this masterpiece #22?


Should be higher

Awesome Song. Great Riffs

The best new cob song.

Single from 'I worship chaos' to be released on Oct 2nd. Brilliant song


Awesome solos...i love this song

Old CoB is back!

Children of Bodom

The best one till date! I am surprised people don't find it the best! and yeah COB Rocks! m/

Great song... Nothing more to say about it the guitar riffs are awesome plus alexis vocal are outstanding

This is their anthem!

Single version was better


I love this song, their early years are the best!
Better than angels don't kill.
This song must be in first position

Wow this song is way underrated!

How is this not in top 10, is beyond me... really strange

It's very simple people this is their best song.


Their 2019 album, Hexed, is awesome!

Mask of Sanity

Okay how in the hell is this 24th
Amazing instrumentals and vocals, the chorus blows me off my feet every time I hear it, this should be at least 5th!

Their self-titled album was the best, and this has got to be my favourite song by them. Those keyboards are great.


Now 29th? This easily in the top dozen

Aces High


Again another cover! This time it is Iron Maiden's Aces High! I like this version more than the original!

I equally like the original and this cover.

I Worship Chaos

The new album deserves to be listened to. This song is way better than anything off blooddrunk or are you dead yet.

This is my new favorite cob song

All for Nothing

For me this is one of the best songs of Children of Bodom. The rhythm guitar gives an amazing atmosphere. The solo playing with the keyboards in harmony at the end of the song is just spectacular. This song tells us that COB had evolved to create this real amazing masterpiece. I don't understand how this song is at the first places of the list...

The outro to this is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard! Pure perfection

It should be greater position

Bodom After Midnight

Dear god, you people are confused. "Children of Decadence" and "Bodom After Midnight" not even in the top 20...

This ain't in top 5?! What! This rocks! Guys listen to this!
Great solo & great intro as well, they've used sync too.. & you'll love it...

The intro is orgasmic...

Tie My Rope

The best melodic death metal track ever... Try this out. It has powerful beats.



28! Twenty eight! Is this a joke?! It's way better than angels don't kill. Can even beat every time I die. Just listen to it, I promise you'll agree.

71? Did you sit in your house and smoke marijuana. This song should be in the top 10

Has one of the greatest riffs in the history of metal..

Love that keyboard intro, such a catchy song!


I love Children of Bodom and Hatebreeder, and this song should be far up there, along with Angels Don't Kill and every time I Die.

About Metallica, Beatles, and Led Zeppelin they're gods of music and don't try to mock and insult them solely because of personal preferences. I hate Justin Beiber or Lady Gaga but I shut my mouth up and you should too.

I honestly think #35 is too low for this song, deserves to be much higher

Good song think the best of they

Whaat hatebreeder is at no 30?
Epic song... I love it

Sleeping in My Car
Taste of My Scythe

I really like this songs. I am a bit surprised that it is number 45.

Seriously how is this one not higher up. The melodies in this are amazing.

...his friends, and again, and on and on.

Done with Everything, Die for Nothing

UGH! the song that got me into the world of death metal & loving COB, the guitar works are unbelievably insane!

My parents buyed me Guitar Hero 5 and there I heard this Dong for the first time, so it's the reason why I have such a good taste of Music.

This song helped my to escape of a Pop-Hell named Gangnam Style

Banned from Heaven

What, this is by far Number 1 for me. Angels don't kill number 1? Come on!

This is very much similar to every time I die... Deserves to be the 2nd

1-angles don't kill
2-banned from heaven
3-every time I die
4-not my funeral
5-are you dead yet?

Banned from heaven that far on list what is going on if this song not existed probly I wont be listening to children of bodom>

Halo of Blood

The drums in this song are just absolutely stunning, it keeps the pace of the song fast and jumpy, while also retaining that creepy feeling. The lyrics and general tune are very catchy, and the solo is epic! Definitely--and always will be--one of my favorite Bodom songs. I was honestly very surprised not to see this in the top ten.

Great Drums, best vocals performance

The best song from the best album of COB!

Must be in #10 at least

Not My Funeral

Awesome chorus and solo... awesome vocals... overall the best song off Relentless Reckless Forever!

Relentless, Reckless Forever
Deadnight Warrior

I'm surprised nobody mentioned this song, this is by far a top 5 song, with the best melody riff ever. Insane voices drums and guitar with such a powerful rithm.

Best Song Ever!
"It reflects hatred in my eyes" how can this song not be in the top 5 at least

#33? Are you kidding me? Guys please listen to this song. It should definitely be top 10

<3 Love It

Towards Dead End

Awesome song, I love those neoclassical riffs and solos

Amazing and kickass song!

In the Shadows

I know for sure now that most people who have made comments on this site are just kids or people who are very new to Melodic Metal or Metal in general for that matter because they have put a Britney Spears cover song ahead of this fantastic song!

The entire album "Something Wild" I think is very underrated. I am not saying that this song should be in the top 5 but at least in the top 20 and not this far down!

The entire album is so underrated honestly... This is one of cob's best albums (with Hatebreeder and Follow the Reaper). I love the neoclassic feel of this album and believe that the C# tuning fits the band very well. This is one of their best songs! by the way my favourite tracks of this album are Deadnight Warrior, In the Shadows and Red Light In My Eyes Pt 1. The atmosphere on this album is really special. Cob never ever managed to give me the same feeling again (on Hatebreeder it is again a different experience and on ftr as well). I am really annoyed about the fact that people consider bodom's new stuff epic etc. The new stuff just doesn't match the first 3 albums. It seems as if the entire band has changed... (for the worse). I also don't like the fact that this album stands in the shadows (no pun intended) of hatebreeder and follow the reaper. It is equally (or almost equally) good.

4:20 -> orgasm

Triple Corpse Hammerblow

Can't belive this song isn't in the top 3 at least it is epic probably my fave (but I do only have 1 album) I also love angels don't kill it deserves 1st

This song deserves to be in the top 5!
Awesome drums and guitar playing...
After in your face and bed of razors this song comes in next as the third best!

Great song. I'm happy that COB have many great songs!

That triple corpse Hammerblow

Roundtrip to Hell and Back

Amazing intro, blows my mind every time I listen to it. Should definitely be in top 10 at least.

26? Are you kidding me? This should be first.

Was It Worth It?

34? This song is incredible

Scream for Silence

This is my favourite song from CoB! How is this 83 at the time I am writing this?!

Beatiful Riff and lyrics

Bodom Blue Moon (The Second Coming)

Awesome song. Should be higher.

Badass performance in this song! I love the riff at 1:48 of the song it's so f@ucking badass!
