2 Fury of the Storm Fury of the Storm

2nd song ever! 1st is Through the Fire and Flames.
This is the song that inspired me to listen to DragonForce, great solos

Fury of the storm has better soloes than any other Dragonforce song (except operation ground and pound and through the fire and flames

Should be #1, great guitar and lyrics.

The guitar solo is absolutely amazing

3 Valley of the Damned Valley of the Damned

Best dragonforce song if you ask me. the first one I knew, but still the greatest one :) great ending too :D

In my opinion the best song DragonForce has ever made. Yes Through the Fire and Flames is the most popular song DragonForce has and was made the band popular through Guitar Hero 3, (That was how I found this band) but other songs of theirs are even better in my opinion! Awesome ending too!

My point is if you are new to listening to DragonForce, try out some of their other songs before thinking Through the Fire and Flames is their best.

THIS IS JUST MY OPINION (You don't have to hate on me :D)

valley of the damned has the greatest ending to the song!
great job guys xD

This is not only the best DF song but one of the best songs ever written. We are so fortunate to be alive and be able to listen to the music performed by the original composer. This is equivalent to being alive during the time of Mozart and being able to hear him perform.

4 Heroes of Our Time Heroes of Our Time

It was so hard to choose, all their songs sound the same. I went with this one, though (a little better than the rest). - djh101

Awesome! This song reminds me in my childhood days with the super heroes.. haha laugh out loud! You should see their IMBALANCE video!

This song was very impressive. the guitar solo, the drums, specially Herman Li. He was insane. His finger was really insanely fast.

One of the best Dragonforce Songs! I love it, it's a great song!

5 Operation Ground and Pound Operation Ground and Pound

Through the Fire and Flames+ Heroes of our Time= Operation Ground and Pound. One of my favorite songs ever. It just sounds so... Perfect. There really isn't any other word to describe it.

This is best than through the fire and flames (that is a bad song that is famous only for being the hardest song in guitar hero) this is 1.000.000... Times best than through the fire and flames - Pedrok

I love this song because its the toughest song in guitar hero 3. I bet if you could play it in the expert level...

For me, this runs a close second to Valley of the Damned. Great song title.
Amazing dual guitar intro and trademark catchy singalong chorus. Wonderful mix of melody and power balanced nicely with keyboards. "Live tonight! "

6 Cry Thunder Cry Thunder

This song is what truly made DragonForce known, the wicked guitars, vocals and fusion of sounds make it among their best works, I do t know how this got ranked 11th

No one can even call them Dragonforce after listening this... Really the best

A good song with an awesome song with Herman and Sam doing an insane solo

First Dragonforce song I knew. One of the best!

7 Revolution Deathsquad Revolution Deathsquad

This is my number one favorite song of all time. There is just no question why this is up here. The first time I heard this song, the things immediately caught my ear, being the fifth Dragonforce song I'd heard by playing it on guitar hero. The first was SCREAMING. Then I heard the techno sounds and the "time to try and hold on", and finally that epic guitar sequence right after that awesome "heaviest riff ever" as guitar hero called it. This is without question the single best guitar sequence I have ever heard in my life. The entire rest of the song is epic, too. - MottScurry

Comparing to other Dragonforce song, this really pumps me up..
And with the little breaks in the guitar and follow by a rage of power chords, just amazing, I always listen this song before a match, and then my win in nearly guaranteed.. Thanks Dragonforce

This song is so fast. It should be at the top of this list by far! - DopeWithABass

Best dragonforce song of all time constantly going through my head

8 The Last Journey Home The Last Journey Home

One of the best solos of all time by far. This solo has immortalized dragonforce and they will be remembered 50 years hence to be the creator of what can be called, one of the best songs of metal. For now, this song is sadly underrated from being different from the usual super-fast beats. But that is what makes this stand out and it will become a legendary track no doubt.

I really enjoy Dragonforce, but this song feels different from all of their other songs. That's not a bad thing of course, in fact that's why I like it so much. Definitely top 10 material.

This is a beast of a song. It doesn't follow the traditional stylization of their songs, with the first verse long with a second short verse then a bridge with a beastly solo. It has one long verse, then what feels like a REALLY long bridge leading into what is an amazing solo in my opinion. The vocal performance is very strong as well. Me gusta~.

So much power! This song is a journey of a lifetime; an epic sonic adventure

9 Where Dragons Rule Where Dragons Rule

This is my sixth favorite Dragonforce song. This song is probably Dragonforce's most easily and dangerously catchy song. The lyrics are a piece of cake to remember, the transition from the slow and steady part to the fast and furious part is epic, and the guitar solo is awesome. All you need is Chuck Norris. - MottScurry

When it comes to dragonforce you either like their slow songs or their fast songs but this is the perfect mix and that s why it deserves a high spot. Where Dragons Rule is the ultimate show of the Creative power of DragonForce

Awesome song, the vocals really take it up and beyond, too bad Zippy's gone :(

Wow! I cannot get the chorus out of my head and the intro and ending show the softer side of Dragonforce if there is such a thing... but somehow it works. When I heard this song for the first time and I heard the guitar drop with JP singing "Where dragons ruuule! " I knew this was going to be a new favorite of mine.

10 Once In a Lifetime Once In a Lifetime

Best song ever, the solo, lyrics are all outstanding to me along with 1 other within this album ZP done great with his work, to bad he quit :(

If you're not familiar with this song, don't listen to the sample; find it elsewhere. It's probably my least favorite part of this song. The rest is so much better. And it has one of my absolute favorite guitar solos!

The Newcomers

? Summer's End
? Soldiers of the Wasteland Soldiers of the Wasteland

This song is their very best song if you ask me.
I used to really dislike metal, but this song has really changed my mind. The first time I heard it I was convinced immediately.

What can anyone say but a damn good song. Keep it up. Look forward to the next album.

All of their songs have amazing intros, along with the fantastic duo guitar solos, and great sound effects with some nice synth melody's to follow up. I feel this song has all of this mixed in really well.

Every time I try to sing or hum a dragonforce song it just goes back to this one. Easily the best.

The Contenders

11 Disciples of Babylon Disciples of Babylon

In my opinion, should be in the top 5, one of their most well written songs, if not the most well written

12 Cry for Eternity Cry for Eternity

This is my third favorite Dragonforce song. This was actually a close call between this and "The Last Journey Home". In my opinion, the opening sequence wasn't epic enough. Actually, I used to have "Soldiers of the Wasteland" in this spot because of the middle part where it's slow and the guitar riffs are cool, but that rapidly went down the list once I came across this song, which had a much cooler guitar sequence in the middle, plus that wicked keyboard solo afterwards. - MottScurry

I'd say that this is the best song in Dragonforce's arsenal. That solo at 5:21 (or thereabouts) melted my face off. The unsung hero of Inhuman Rampage...

Listen to that intro. Listen to that bridge. Listen to that chorus. Everything in this song seats intensity and screams awesome.

Insane solo fastest dragonforce solo I've heard

13 My Spirit Will Go On My Spirit Will Go On

Best song ever... I didn't hear it till recently. But wow, this is a good song.

Great Song, is my favourite and is unique. - dragon13304

This is my nineth favorite Dragonforce song. One of the first Dragonforce songs I ever heard, and it definitely deserves to be in everyone's favorites. This is like the ideal image of an epic metal song. That beginning sequence is just epic, no other words to describe it. It's only this low because there were just 8 better ones. - MottScurry

I'm shocked that this isn't first. This song actually got me to listen to dragonforce. I hope this song rises in place!

14 Three Hammers Three Hammers

After Maximum Overload was released, this should TRULY be in first place. Great lyrics, strong song; DragonForce has really kicked in, in composing this song.

One of my favorites for sure, if not my favorite. I just love everything about this song.

People who love epic songs and DragonForce should absolutely know this song!

"Three hammers high, in the burning red sky, forged in the fire! Protectors of mankind."

"This song is absoluely phenomenal like through the fire and flames, I felt a spark inside me when I heard that song, but I felt an even bigger spark, when I listened to this for the first time, it's absolutely an amazing song and I can not wait for a new album, like most DF fans. I adore this song, but I expected it to be in that all important top 10."

15 Starfire Starfire

Criminally low. Should be top 10. The remastered version also has some best and cleanest vocals of any of their songs

Greatest DragonForce song ever, simply fantastic.

Kind of different from other songs but in a good way. It sounds beautiful.

Just like Dawn over a New World this song is too low in this list.It is simply beautiful and it's nice to have a calm song from time to time

16 Seasons Seasons

Absolutely amazing song, I have heard every song they have created and it is hard to pick a favourite however I believe this is one of their most creative, catchy, fast, and brilliant songs.

Okay, their latest and best song, it's so epic they made a damn acoustic version for it, and it's rated 30? This is stupid as hell, this song is the best, I've heard all the ones on the top of this list and this one is still better, I'm sure everyone agrees

This song has very emotional lyrics, and they are especially brought out in its acoustic version. In my opinion, it sounds like it is speaking of repairing ones soul after a tragedy. This is now my favorite Dragonforce song! Keep up the good work!

Seasons deserves a higher spot on this list; it's short, to the point, and has these crazy weird solos, and some amazing vocals and epic lyrics.

17 Body Breakdown Body Breakdown

Great Progressive feel at the start, incredible guitar (what else would you expect from DragonForce? ) Just an Epic Song, its so hard to pick a best song from these guys. m/! Rock On DragonForce! m/

Lovely everything. besides I als feel that dragon force is way too much underrated. To me it is form the best bands ever made

Very great melody! Crazy solo bass and guitar

YEAH! This song has great Chorus! I think it should be greater, It should get first rank of best dragonforce songs!
Truely Epic, Great solo and magnificent Chorus,
This song also has good melody too,
Best song ever from dragonforce!

18 Dawn Over a New World Dawn Over a New World

This song is much better than Through the fire and flames. It has to be at least in the first five

This one is perfect! It's the shortest one they've ever written but has everything a great song should have... Dragonforce at their best!

Not their shortest as Strike Of The Ninja is shorter, but still a good point, not every song has to be 7 minutes to be good, they should do more slow material like this.

One of their most beautiful songs.It's more melodic and slower than most of their songs yet it has a killer solo.This should be ranked higher

19 Fallen World

This was a hard choice, but I think Fallen World has a fresh, unique, and powerful story and melody. It's an enchanting song. The lyrics are some of the most meaningful to me. Hudson has an amazing voice!

Their fastest song, and is accompanied with the band's most underrated album and what I consider to be the best.

This one and Seasons are my favourites from the album, really good lyrics!

20 Fields of Despair Fields of Despair

This is my fourth favorite Dragonforce song. Probably Dragonforce's most underrated song. Maybe because the beginning takes off too suddenly, or maybe cause it's too sort. I don't know, but what I do know is that the main reason this song is so high is because of that beautiful, awesome, epic keyboard solo right in the middle that is just unparalleled in the known universe. Plus that Woah! Part at the end is my second favorite of Dragonforce's Woah! S. - MottScurry

WHAT is this song doing here at 36th?! Without a doubt, this song has the best intro, and by far the BEST chorus! Please, please give it a listen and then vote. I'm not asking you to raise it higher because I know it will automatically if you listen to it.

The live version from twilight dementia is a lot better than the original. It is easily on the top 3 of my best DragonForce songs.

Zippy's high notes are pulled off perfectly! I love this song so much!
