Top 10 Best 30 Seconds to Mars Songs

The Top Ten
1 The Kill

"I tried to be someone else
But nothing seemed to change
I know now, this is who I really am inside.
Finally found myself
Fighting for a chance.
I know now, this is who I really am. "

Like the end of these lines this is what 'The Kill' really is number 1

This song also broke a record on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart by remaining on the chart for 52 weeks...!

This song has been my favourite song since it came out you will never get sick of it, it is absolutely amazing... I have never gone one day without listening to it, I never have and never will... I'm a crazy thirt seconds to mars fan, it is the best song I have ever heard in my life if you haven't heard the kill you are insane to not want to listen to it

Fantastic song... I'm crying when I listen to it because of how good it is...

As Jared said during a VyRT "it's incredible how songs change your life" and yes it is. This song is so important to me, I think this is the best song 30 Seconds to Mars ever did. This song represents my life and I'm so close to it. I DO LOVE IT.

2 Closer to the Edge

I don't know what to say about this song and 30 Seconds to Mars! Words can't describe it! I feel like Closer To The Edge is the greatest song ever made and that 30 Seconds to Mars is the greatest band ever! Proud being an Echelon! Love you Jared, Shannon and Tomo! You guys changed my life.

I LOVE THIS SONG! It reminds me of when I watched tributes on YouTube, and half of them were of 'Closer to the Edge' This song is truly beautiful, and I believe that this song should be at the top of the list.

I could listen to this song all day long and whenever I listen to it, I'm filled with mixed emotions! I could be crying, smiling, shouting, laughiBG simply because of the fact that it's one of the greatest songs ever!

This is just simply the best song that 30 Seconds to Mars have ever made. The song as a whole is just amazing and the lyrics are so inspiring! It never gets old! Thank you 30 Seconds to Mars

3 Kings and Queens

Such a riveting song that should be never be spoken of in vain. The lyrics start off soft to capture you in the songs atmosphere and when the hook comes in it's a hard rock sound that at the same time is still not harsh to listen to... As for the drumming... At times you could hear it picking up speed but not volume which really accents the involving parts of this song... And the words of this song make you feel as if its you they are talking about... Like it is there to show the power you and you're actions have... The power of kings and queens
I'm not sure what happened but for some reason there is 7% rating that came automatically though I would rate this song much much higher... Sorry gus

One of the greatest songs in the history of music. It is timeless, ardent, and inspirational. The electrifying beat is worthy, and matched only by its charismatic cry for revolution. That is, the revolution to not become slaves to the thorns of doubt and deterrent, but to rise up and break free of the shackles, and transcend the confines of our own imagination.

This album made me love the year of 2009. Its message is rooted deeply, and its vocals supply an ephemeral message. That is, a message about dreaming and possibility, like children looking up to the sky, seeing the shooting star dart across the heavens. An authentic calling to everyone, to become the "Kings and Queens" of our own stories.

Really their best song. It's on such an epic scale and has such a good meaning and lyrics it gives me the chills when I listen to it. When I think of the song that best represents 30 Seconds to Mars, this is the song that comes to mind.

4 This Is War

While I am posting this comment, I see this song at number 3 while 'The Kill' is at number one. Unacceptable. Hurricane at number 4. Again, unacceptable. This Is War is the second best 30 seconds to Mars song. The first one in my opinion should be, of course, Hurricane. The Kill doesn't even come close.

Now when you listen to This Is War, you will be forced to reflect upon the moral dilemma that one faces on the battlefield. More than the war on the battlefield, it is about war that takes place within yourself. While the lyrics hit their spot, music does the real magic. No more words. Just listen.

My all time favourite 30 Seconds to Mars song! This song is so inspiring, it's about fighting for what you believe and the changes people are willing to fight for! The vocals by Jared in this song are incredible, and the emotion he puts in for every lyric is so touching. This is, without doubt, their best song both lyrically and musically. Once you listen to it, you won't be able to stop until you know the song off by heart!

I just love the deep emotion and delivery done by Jared's vocals and the whole band's performance in this song. It instigates a strong motivation for people to stand firm and ignites the urge to fight forward for what we believe in no matter the consequence it will ensue.

For me, it's one of the most hard hitting 30 Seconds to Mars and ground breaking modern rock single to date!

The first time I listened to this song, it totally sucked me in. I think this song should be first, because I honestly think this is the best 30 Seconds to Mars song ever! Even though this song is about fighting and war, this song seems to give me happiness. When I first saw it, I thought it would be a sad, serious, and depressing song, but it's not!

5 From Yesterday

Jared Leto's voice is amazing in this song! Better than This is war, Kings and Queens, Closer to the Edge, Hurricane, and Edge Of the Earth! Listen and you will feel this way too! It was 2nd a few weeks ago and should be again!

This song is so beastly! The guitar starts off nice and slow then evolves into some angry beast and Jared Leto's epic screams start to kick in. This song is so versatile, the best song from this band along with The Kill.

Suprised this is no7! Such a great song with some pretty awesome lyrics, I'm pretty sure a lot of votes are from the newer crowd of 30 Seconds to Mars, hence why most of there old but better songs are down the bottom...

But you guys are joking right? From Yesterday is definitely one of their strongest songs. It's also another track that shows how incredibly expansive the team's lyrical writing is.

6 A Beautiful Lie

I'll vote for a beautiful lie although I have definitely no favorite song because I like them all! All 30 seconds to mars's songs are so beautiful and meaningful and I never get tired of hearing them over and over again. NO matter how many songs from different bands I listen to, when a 30 Seconds to Mars song begging, I think there is not such a band who have CREATED music that are so moving in a special and unique way. It brings to you the feeling of patriotic love mostly like mass (Echelon) love... But I voted for this song because I relate to it in a very emotional way.

I definitely agree with the guy below me, A Beautiful Lie is the best album! And this is pretty much the theme of the album! I love the intro!

This is awesome... I think this song is really personal... I mean for anyone it has a meaning (different with others) and jared showed us one the aspects of this song in video clip

A Beautiful Lie was the first song I listened to, when I got to know the band. It's like the music is hypnotising. The good type of hypnosis. I woke up with an ambition to stand up for what I believe in.

7 Hurricane

This song is totally my favorite song by 30 seconds to mars. I listen to this song every time I feel down, I listen to it over and over again. The sound is amazing, the lyrics are just so freaking good & Jared's voice is so damn beautiful.. Thirty seconds to mars is just the best band for me, no doubt. They changed my life, they mean everything to me!

This is such an awesome song... Deserves to be higher simply because the music is epic and there is such unparalleled passion in it. Its wonderful to let emotions out listening to this number. The chorus has got such depth in it... Love the line that says tell me if you'd kill to save a life!

I have been listening to this song for the last three days. Listened it for more than 70-80 times and still counting. Such a raw vocal and beautiful lyrics. Who needs dope when you have stuff like this. I am totally immersed into it.

Hurricane is amazing. I have listened to it over 200 times (According to Itunes) and I am still not bored of it! The lyrics are amazing and it always feels so fresh and pure each time I listen to it. Hopefully I won;t dry it out, but will it ever be possible?

8 Attack

This was a hard one because I'm split between "Hurricane" and "This is War" if it wasn't for "Attack. " However, I've known "Attack" since I was a child, and I will always remember how much I'd listen to it when I was frustrated with life.

It really surprised me that this isn't up higher. I understand why it didn't best the kill because all 30 Seconds to Mars fans love that song, but this song is 100% incredible.

Personally my favourite 30 seconds to mars song it is so catchy and should definitely be in the top 3 maybe even the top if you listen before you vote...

All listen to this song just try it and you will then vote for it I don't know why it's so low, it's a lot better then all the ones above, this should actually be number 1... Just try it

9 City of Angels

I think it's Number 1, purely because it speaks of something more than practically any Mars song I've heard. It's about finding your dreams and hope and that one place where you feel surrounded by magic and the people around you will never be your enemies, they'll only be your closest friends and it's about re-discovery and re-discovering yourself or even just discovering yourself, and I think that's incredibly powerful. Oh, and it's about Los Angeles and I love L. A!

This song a token me by storm because ever since I first discovered this song I've been unable to stop listening to this Beautiful song!

I mena it you've really got to take a moment and listen to this song because the whole song is amazing and Jared can hit those notes and his Voice is a beauty!

I Am HOME... Home

This song is beautiful! I probably listen to it every day I love it! Great beat and lyrics, started my love for 30 seconds to mars, it's the best in my opinion!

This song gives you an onrush of good feelings and literally takes you to another world. One of their best songs without question!

10 Edge of the Earth

Are you kidding me? Edge of the earth is undoubtedly the best 30 Seconds to Mars song! The pure aggression in the voice of Jared Leto combined with the heavy guitar and powerful drums make this the most awesome 30 Seconds to Mars song ever!

First song I listened to from 30 Sec To Mars when playing NFS Hot Pursuit. Epic song with powerful lyrics, powerful chords and undoubtedly an ecstatic ending. No offense, but this song's much better than The Kill, Closer to the Edge and This is War. This should be on top.

The song should be at the top list! The skill it takes to play this song is incredible. The best song ever from 30 Seconds to Mars! Their official music video isn't even a performance it's a music video edit!

I love this song and glad to see that it's getting the recognition it deserves nearly being number one, but I'm going to continue voting so Edge of the Earth can take the crown away from The Kill.

The Contenders
11 Night of the Hunter

I don't know why this song in #14. It deserve at least top 3. Try to listened the one they sang at MTV unplugged. The violin background, the guitar plus the great vocal. Vote more for this song!

A relative directed the movie The Night Of The Hunter. If you want to catch that whole dark Louisiana vibe in one incredibly sexual piece of music... There you have it.

Night of the Hunter is the best song I heard in This Is War.. It is way better than Kings and Queens.. The lyrics are just amazing.. The way Jared sings it is just orgasmic!

Aside from the awesome uniqueness of the beat, the lyrics in this song are one of the best I've ever heard in one or their songs. They're really vague, but they get you thinking. Listen if you haven't:) also jared's vocals are great in this song too

12 Up In the Air

I think this is the band's most accomplished song and establishes that they are a great rock and roll band. I therefore think its their best song. Hopefully others realise this soon.

Awesome lyrics. "A portrait of a tortured you and I." Splendid vocals, of course. Your lungs synchronize with the thump of the beat. Vote for it, guys.

I don't know how and why what this song gives me that feeling like it means something important or something. I love it.

I really like this song. Is different but amazing should be at least at the top ten. The video is also awesome and please vote for this song

13 Vox Populi

This is such an inspirational and moving song. It's a call for everyone who has ever believed in something to stand together and fight for what they believe in. It really defines the band, and is one of my all time favourite 30 Seconds to Mars song!

It has such an inspirational feel with the upbeat tempo and battle cry chorus. Jared belts it out, Tomo accents on guitar, and Shannon does his thing. This is 30 Seconds to Mars at their best.

Definitely is in my top 5. It's a song that is so inspirational and is less of a song, and more of a fighter's anthem and it's unbelievably amazing.

Their best song! So great to sing along to, such meaningful lyrics!

14 Do or Die

This song is so motivating. It's really about living your life to the fullest and enjoying the memories you've made. It's a really amazing song and the lyrics are genius, it's so fun to sing along to as well.

I just came across this band, listened to this song and thought Wow! I expected it to be #1 turns out it's all the way down to #36. So underrated!

One of the most epic songs in their career. It's no wonder it is in the trailers for The Wind Rises and The Book of Life. Excellent song.

It's songs like this that make me love this band. I love the positive message of this song. This song is all about following your dreams no matter what

15 Echelon

If you re not aware of what is called chills in your spines then give this song a try and I m sure you will not regret it. For me this is, was and ever will be one of the most masterpiece song of all time.

This is absolutely my favorite song by 30 seconds to mars some people might not like but even so whats this epic song doing down around the thirties I'm mean some people might not like it but not this much! It should be at least in the top 10 not way down here holy smokes!

What the hell man... this should be at least in top 5 it's such a greatest song I've ever listened, just give it a try, I just can't get enough of it

One of my favorite songs by anyone.

16 Capricorn (A Brand New Name)

Oh man, this song is EPIC, much more than Hurricane or even Kings and Queens. The Kill deserves the top, but Capricorn deserves, at least, the #6.

Brilliant guitar riffs, amazing vocals, and the video's outta the world... Jeez, I'm surprised Capricorn's not ON THE TOP!

What is wrong...
This song is awesome... Like it should be in the top 5
I love the chorus and the guitar and vocals are just awesome...

This is the best song!
What the hell is wrong with you!
This song should be at the top it is better than the kill and from yesterday!

17 Welcome to the Universe

This song really does kick some major ass, I love how epic the chorus is, it makes you feel so powerful and almighty. It's as if you are god and are really welcoming someone into YOUR Universe. EPIC!

The feeling of this song can't compare with others 30 Seconds to Mars songs, in my point. The chords, harmony, the melodic guitar and the lyrics of Jared at the end.. Just like a masterpiece.

I won't hold it against anyone if they're deaf or never heard of this unbelievable song, but I really want everyone to vote for Welcome to the Universe!

The lyrics alone are enough to place this in the top 10! This should have been a single, if only it was a bit longer.

"You wait in the palid slivered sky, come into the pantheoon. Welcome to the universe. Welcome to the universe! "

18 End of All Days

This is the most truthful song about life. Great piano and use of synths. Lyrics and timbre are amazing. Jared really gets his God damn point across. Best singing I've heard him do live or studio!

This song is amazing! People need to give it the attention it deserves, truly a beautiful song, definitely in my top 5 favorite Mars songs! Please check it out guys!

O can't believe this song isn't on the top ten, it's amazing and deserves more. really good relatable lyrics + the voice and piano sounds majestic on this one

Just amazing and beautiful. Best song ever!

19 The Fantasy

This truly is my favourite song by them, but then again this entire album was amazing. The first album had a couple decent songs but it was just not the best. The third and fourth albums were iffy, like just couldn't get into them. The new one is actually pretty good but still really poppy. Beautiful Lie is The one album I can listen to on repeat for long periods of time

Really cool song. It's very relatable. Doing anything to accomplish your wildest dreams and your greatest hopes is something that everyone can tell a story about.

This number must be on nr. 1! This is an awesome song!
I think that this song is cooler than The Kill, because you can sing with the song and it has a tekst that you can follow without many screaming or something... I THIS SONG!

This a Beautiful music!

20 Alibi

It's not about a song over others, we have our own songs for each perfect moment, you choose what you want, we are in democracy. I remember listening to this song in an special moment, and it linked to me forever, that's why I love this song and "Oblivion".
If you listening to this song when you feel like you can't make a choice or move on, it will link to you for eternity, it will be there for you when you need it, and it will give you those sweet words your soul really needs to hear.

It's a song about living and the risk you take when you live, about taking choices, making mistakes, quest, etc, it doesn't matter what happens you keep going always till you wake up in some other reality... and then you keep going.

This is my absolute favorite song ever! It is so amazing and sad and beautiful and makes me cry every time I listen to it. Its sad but its also inspiring and just really moving. Best song for sure

Oh Wow! So low in the list yet such a beautiful sad song it is in my top three favourite 30 Seconds to Mars ever with The Kill and Hurricane.

Alibi is easily my favorite song by 30 Seconds to Mars, and certainly one of my all time favorite musical pieces. A very powerful song.

21 R-Evolve

BEST SONG EVER! Unique lyrics, Unique melody, Unique performance...
I'm so depressed about the fact that they don't play it regularly in their shows... (let's say never... )

This is one of the best songs mars have EVER made! Along with savior. 24? Yeah, no.

Can't believe that this is so low, easily one of their best!

On of the rather song that guitar is the best than drums and voice from band

22 Oblivion

Brilliant song, great energy. With End of the Beginning, Fallen and Echelon my favorite songs of this pretty damn good album! Everybody run now...

This song is BY FAR, and I mean BY DAN their best song. Most people just haven't heard it. holy crap this is a good song. It should be at least in the top 5.

Amazing most people don't vote for it because they never heard it just try it's awesome!

I'm sad that I voted from yesterday now. This doesn't have enough votes! This song is epic!

23 The Mission

The Mission is my favorite song ever thus being that in my opinion it's the best song ever! I wish 30 seconds to mars made a video to this so more fans could hear it!

24 Fallen

Night Of The Hunter ahead of this? Facepalm. Ah well, there's nothing we can do anymore. All these new Mars fans have taken over, sadly.

Look at all the weak fallen men voting for This Is War songs over this classic!

Way better than anything on their next 3 albums apart from Was it a Dream?

I'm addicted to this song!

25 End of the Beginning

Say it isn't so this song has got to be the greatest 30 seconds to mars song I have ever listened to it needs to be way higher on the list I would say at least in the top five respectively.

NO WAY should this song be below the top 10 Jared's amazing vocals and guitar mixed with Shannon's drums and tomo's bass is PERFECTION!

End of the Beginning needs to way higher on this list at least top ten this song is incredible.

Among others, End of the Beginning has its own special inspiration for people. First place for me.
