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. "

The end of these lines this is why '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 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 Thirty 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 not to want to listen to it.

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

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 to be 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 it should be at the top of the list.

I could listen to this song all day long. Whenever I listen to it, I'm filled with mixed emotions! I could be crying, smiling, shouting, laughing simply because it's one of the greatest songs ever!

3 Kings and Queens

Such a riveting song that should never be spoken of in vain. The lyrics start off soft to capture you in the song's 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 can 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 it's you they are talking about, like it is there to show the power you and your actions have – the power of kings and queens.

I'm not sure what happened, but for some reason, there is a 7% rating that came automatically, though I would rate this song much higher. Sorry, guys.

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.

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 the war that takes place within yourself. While the lyrics hit their spot, the music does the real magic. No more words. Just listen.

My all-time favorite 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 into every lyric is so touching. This is, without a 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!

5 From Yesterday

Jared Leto's voice is amazing in this song! It's 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.

Surprised this is No. 7! 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 their older but better songs are down the bottom...

6 A Beautiful Lie

I'll vote for 'A Beautiful Lie', although I definitely have no favorite song because I like them all! All 30 Seconds to Mars 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 begins, I think there is no such band that has created music 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 from others), and Jared showed us one of the aspects of this song in the video clip.

7 Hurricane

This song is totally my favorite by Thirty Seconds to Mars. I listen to this song every time I feel down, over and over again. The sound is amazing, the lyrics are just so freaking good, and 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. It deserves to be higher simply because the music is epic and there is such unparalleled passion in it. It's wonderful to let emotions out listening to this number. The chorus has 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 to it more than 70-80 times and still counting. Such raw vocal and beautiful lyrics. Who needs dope when you have stuff like this? I am totally immersed in it.

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 beat The Kill because all 30 Seconds to Mars fans love that song, but this song is 100% incredible.

Personally, my favorite 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.

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. The people around you will never be your enemies. They'll only be your closest friends. It's about re-discovery and rediscovering 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 took me by storm because ever since I first discovered it, I've been unable to stop listening to this beautiful song! I mean 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. 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. It started my love for 30 Seconds to Mars. It's the best, in my opinion!

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!

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

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

The Contenders
11 Night of the Hunter

I don't know why this song is at #14. It deserves at least a top 3 spot. Try listening to the one they sang at MTV Unplugged. The violin background, the guitar, plus the great vocals. 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 sensual 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!

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. Therefore, I think it's their best song. Hopefully, others will realize 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, but this song gives me that feeling like it means something important or something. I love it.

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 favorite 30 Seconds to Mars songs!

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. It's unbelievably amazing.

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 an 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, but it turns out it's all the way down at #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.

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 masterful songs of all time.

This is absolutely my favorite song by 30 Seconds to Mars. Some people might not like it, but even so, what's this epic song doing down around the thirties? I 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 the top 5. It's the greatest song I've ever listened to. Just give it a try, I just can't get enough of it.

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 out of this 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.

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 a god, welcoming someone into YOUR universe. EPIC!

The feeling of this song can't compare with other 30 Seconds to Mars songs, in my opinion. 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 have never heard of this unbelievable song, but I really want everyone to vote for Welcome to the Universe!

18 End of All Days

This is the most truthful song about life. Great piano and use of synths. The lyrics and timbre are amazing. Jared really gets his point across. It's the best singing I've heard him do live or in the 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!

I can't believe this song isn't in the top ten. It's amazing and deserves more. Really good, relatable lyrics + the voice and piano sound majestic on this one.

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 of decent songs, but it just wasn't the best. The third and fourth albums were iffy, like I just couldn't get into them. The new one is actually pretty good but still really poppy. A 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 relate to and tell a story about.

This number must be number 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 text that you can follow without much screaming or something. I love this song!

20 Alibi

It's not about one song being superior to others. We each have our songs for those perfect moments. You choose what you want. We are in a democracy. I remember listening to this song during a special moment, and it connected with me forever. That's why I love this song and "Oblivion."

If you listen 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, giving you those sweet words your soul really needs to hear.

It's a song about living and the risks you take, about making choices and mistakes, about quests, etc. No matter what happens, you keep going always until you wake up in some other reality... and then you keep going.

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

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!

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 FAR, 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. It's awesome!

23 The Mission

The Mission is my favorite song ever, thus being, in my opinion, the best song ever! I wish 30 Seconds to Mars had made a video for this so more fans could hear it!

24 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 be way higher on this list, at least top ten. This song is incredible.

25 100 Suns

What the hell! I can't believe this is their best song and it should at least be in the top three. You can see true singing ability in this song and his voice takes you somewhere when you listen to it. Sad that it's only two minutes.

This is such a short and sweet song! How is it 50th? I'm not saying that this song is their best, but it most certainly deserves to be in a higher position than it is now.

This song gets to you. Come on! Guys, it deserves to be in the top 10.
