The Top Ten
1 I Don't Care

Not any thought needed to agree that this is their best song, it has the lead singer of Three Days Grace! That should be enough to tell that it is the best one. What a wonderfully well put together song with catchy lyrics.

The best song I've ever heard. The best of Three Days Grace and Apocalyptica they should do more songs together. I am sure if they do more songs together they would be a hit just like "I don't care"

Do I even need to comment?

The rhythm of the song alone is just so damn good... especially the violin and piano!
Lyrics, well just listen to it.

2 Not Strong Enough

First song I ever heard of Apocalyptica... The way I fell in love with this song has only been followed by the instant love with City from HU.
It blew my mind the second I heard it... And I proceeded to get even further blown away by the rest of Apocalyptica.

Brent Smith's vocals are incredible this deserves to be at #1 plus I Don't Care sounds too pop compared to this.

One of the best songs I've ever heard! I think it should be number 1. Awesome music, awesome lyrics and the vocalist has a truely awesome voice!

3 I'm Not Jesus

This is without a doubt THE best song by them. Corey pours his heart and soul into this song

Corey Taylor is singing for them. It's so awesome how Corey Sings with all his heart

This is the first song that got me listening to this band.

4 Path

Ok I admit : it's not my favourite Apocalyptica's song but I have to react about the 3 first songs of this list and everyone must see it. Why are they so popular? Because It's a band who makes music without guitar or any common instrument but above all because it's WITHOUT LYRICS! It's not the same band with lyrics : it loses power, it's less emotionnal and less perfect. Their only great songs are the only instrumental one. That's all...

The first time I heard this song, my brain went into overdrive thinking it was on LSD. It still does so every I push on this record. This is so so divine as hell! I wasn't even sure at first whether they could play something like this on a cello!

5 Inquisition Symphony

Everything off of this album was killer. Inquisition Symphony has some really amazing instrumental parts to it which make it easily batter than anything else off of this list.

Yes! This is the best song by Apocalyptica! It's a lot better than the other list with only one instrumental. Still I think you have too many vocal songs.

This. Is. One. Big. Eargasm. I absolutely love how they turned a relatively poor Sepultura song into this extreme and awesome song.

6 Broken Pieces

This song is absolutely amazing! Lacey Sturm's voice is breath taking, and combined with Apocalyptica's incredible music, you've got yourself heaven for the ears! I'm glad this song is in the Top 5, but it needs to get higher up there!

7 Hall of the Mountain King

Wow. Better than the original. I want to defeat mordor after listening to this

8 Repressed
9 Bittersweet

I can't stop listening to it. I liked apocalyptica before but after hearing this song it made me love them. It deserves way higher than 7th place. WAY higher.

This is brilliant. Apocalyptica, The Rasmus and HIM...what could you possibly ask for anymore?

Only the 7th spot? Weird considering the quality of this song. I was sure this is the first.

10 Last Hope

Geez. These songs aren't even close to being the best apocalyptica songs. I mean all of these have vocals and the instrumentals are a lot better. I'm very disappointed in your choices.

The Contenders
11 One

This is by far my favourite Apocalyptica song. I love the melody of the guitar and violin sounds. A very creative and unexpected mix.

12 The Unforgiven
13 End of Me

The lyrics in this song are simply amazing and they picked the right singer for this song!

This one was constantly played on the radio, how is it not so much higher?!

14 Harmageddon
15 Hope

How is this not number two next to "I don't care" Seriously, it's a little sad. Listen to this song, I promise you'll love it. No- just listen to the first ten seconds and I promise you'll like it!

Obviously one of their best... Try 2 listen and I will guarantee You will like it

16 Farewell

It's not a cover, and it's so overwhelming but at the same it's very beautiful.
It brings me a lot of emotions, it's just awesome.

Should be in the top 10 at least... Amazing song which gave me goose bumps. True Apocalyptica.

One of their best instrumental songs ever, why isn't it in the top 10?!

17 Life Burns!

This songs is straight up badass! One of the heavier and faster apocalyptica songs, life burns is a testament to the amazing sounds these guys can create with cellos. I never even cared about the cello till these guys. I also really like Lauri Ylöne of The Rasmus contribution. I've been through The Rasmus music and while they are not quite my thing they are still leaps and bounds better than anything that passes for music on radio these days. Here though Lauri shines through with a darker and slightly rougher tone. I love when he screams Life Burns! I know there are those apocalyptica purists out there who say that only the instrumental stuff is truly great and I guess to some extent I agree. I mean whenever they get a guest vocalist they don't tend to shine as much since the vocalist is stealing a lot of the spotlight. Even then though if you compare the amount of songs featuring vocalists to the instrumentals there are really only a handful so I don't think they detract from apocalyptica at all, in fact if anything I think the few songs with vocalists help to spice up something that already works really well. Still, from a purely musical stand point I think this is perhaps not their best song but by far their coolest and my personal favorite.

18 Sea Song (You Waded Out)

This is not only their best song but perhaps one of the most beautiful songs ever composed. Nothing in the rest of their library confess even close.

19 South of Heaven
20 S.O.S.

Amazing vocal as well as amzaing background. Cristina Scabbia is one of the leading women in metal

21 Nothing Else Matters

Just awesome, it has to be their best instrumental piece.

Just love It... Gives the chills indeed

22 Ruska

That is is the business. I wanted to learn how to play after I heard this song.

23 Master of Puppets

THIS is why I started listening to Apocalyptica. Great Covers of songs by a great band.

What? How could this be 23rd? 0.0 it's amazing... it should definitely be 4th after bittersweet, I don't care, and path

24 Rage of Poseidon

One of my favorite songs by them, It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

25 Helden

Gives me tingles down my spine! Definitely one of their best, Till Lendemann gives amazing vocals, and while I like their instrumentals better, this is one of those ones where they chose perfect vocals
