Best Ghost B.C. Songs

The Top Ten
1 Cirice

This song introduced me to Ghost, and as a result, I had this song on loop for three straight days. The music video also got my attention, and this song was really well done. Such a simple and catchy song, yet deep and complicated at the same time. Definitely their best!

Even James Hetfield thinks the riff in this song is great. Emotional lyrics with great melody even though there is no rhyming.

This song is perfect. They manage to capture the creepy yet subtle 70's horror, thriller, and occult film vibe really well. The hooks in the song are big enough to land a whale too!

2 Ritual

The first truly good Ghost song. Still holds up. Perfect balance of Doom Metal and pop sensibilities.

I played this song four times the day I got the album.

The only song I can listen to 100 times and not get bored of.

3 Square Hammer

I grew up and started to love music in the late 80's and from then on. I love metal, and this was the first song I had heard done in a great many years that really reached out and got me. I am slowly enjoying this band's work and I have not heard anything like this since Ozzy or Kiss. It is nice to know that this kind of music is still going strong. I absolutely love it and will follow this band, hopefully for a long time to come.

Usually a fan of heavier music, but this was the Ghost song that really caught my attention. The riffs and chorus were stuck in my head from the first play, and now I'm going back and giving Ghost another chance. They didn't hook me with Opus Eponymous the first time around, but this time they definitely have.

4 Year Zero

Uplifting anthem about the end of the world. The bridge section about how Lucifer will ascend "Above the Stars of God" is the highlight.

Just incredible and unique from the very first moment I had the pleasure to experience it.

Ghost's most toe-tapping track. Great beat, sinister lyrics, awesome live performance.

5 Monstrance Clock

Staple of the live set for good reason. If Ghost doesn't finish with Monstrance Clock, we riot! One of the most interactive experiences you will ever have live. The chorus is thunderous, with the entire room singing the same words. An underrated jam I almost picked is Jigolo Har Megiddo, especially acoustic. I absolutely adore that song.

My first song I heard, and even after listening to all the albums, this is one of my all-time favorite Ghost songs. So headbanging.

How can a song be scary and amazing at the same time? Monstrance Clock is the answer! Perfect.

6 Ghuleh / Zombie Queen

One of my new favorite Ghost songs. It's a really beautiful, chill song! The song literally sounds like you are sitting at a weird satanic ritual. The first time I heard it, I thought God was going to smite me when the song was over.

This is my current favorite song - it starts off with a beautiful haunting piano melody, followed by a sudden and awesome transition into a groovy hard rock song - definitely the band's best song to date!

Gorgeous and creepy, possibly the most unique song in Ghost's repertoire. Brilliant use of crescendos.

7 He Is

Not the best but deserving of more praise. I showed this song to friends who hate metal, and they loved it. Just goes to show how this band can really be the next step in bringing back a style of metal that can resonate with a broader audience.

Hauntingly beautiful in a black mass kind of way, I can't just listen to it one time. It has to be a double play at least. This is my first Ghost album, and I'm totally hooked!

My 2nd favorite song by Ghost. You can love or hate the satanic theme of the band all you like, but the brilliance of this piece is undeniable.

8 Stand by Him

I started listening to this song in April, in which obviously the last thing on your mind is Fall, let alone Halloween. But this song immediately made me feel like I was in a really cool, spooky Halloween setting! Definitely one of the coolest songs I've ever listened to.

I used to hate the chorus, but then I realized that it has its place. It actually adds to the eerie feel of the song.

My favorite song from Ghost, weirdly enough this song put me in the mood for the Halloween season.

9 Elizabeth

I found Ghost because my name is Elizabeth, and I was looking up songs with my name. I'm so hooked I listen to them every single day. I might have an addiction.

This hook has been following me for months. Love the bassline at the hook.

10 From the Pinnacle to the Pit

The story of Lucifer's fall in one compact four-minute romp. Excellent riffs propel this song from the underworld into outer space.

Amazing song, my absolute favorite. Gotta love these perfect finger tapping parts and awesome bass!

This, in my opinion, is Ghost's best song. I can never listen to it just once. It stays with me all day!

The Contenders
11 Genesis

Everything from the melodic riffing to the emotional acoustic outro to end the album - one of the best modern rock instrumentals!

12 Con Clavi Con Dio

The bass riff is killer, and the whole song as well!

13 Rats

I've been on the edge of getting into Ghost for quite some time. However, after hearing Rats for the first time, it finally pushed me over the edge. I've since purchased the entire back catalog and am enjoying this revolutionary band and their amazing sound! Looking forward to the rest of the new album this June!

I'm calling it right now, Prequelle is going to be their best yet. This song ticks all the boxes: it's more metal-sounding than much of their work, while at the same time retaining the beautiful melodies characteristic of them.

14 Deus In Absentia

The hook is so powerful. Heavy music, eerie keyboards, pop hooks, and deep, but dark content.

I haven't heard something close to Ghost from an impact on metal/heavy music since Ozzy went solo with Randy Rhoads or early Pantera. It's a real shift in heavy music. Plus, other influences fused into the music make it complex and really enjoyable. This band (Tobias) is something special.

The song I listened to the most in 2017. It's hard to pick a favorite Ghost track, but this might be it for me.

Great closer to Meliora. It summarizes the album nicely while still adding its own little touch, building up until the end.

15 Dance Macabre

Dance Macabre has infested the world! One of Ghost's greatest songs to date.

A dance song about the end of the world that would make even Prince jealous.

I covered this song with School of Rock Eden Prairie. Love this song.

16 Secular Haze

I love the riff of this song and the keyboard playing in the background! I always get chills when I listen to this song, and it makes me feel like I'm a part of a religious cult.

17 Life Eternal

A song about the loss of Tobias' brother, coincidentally he passed away after the band was launched on MySpace.

Up there as Ghost's finest moment so far - musically and lyrically majestic.

Just amazing. It almost makes me cry every time I listen to it.

18 Kiss the Go-Goat

It took some listenings for me to warm up to this one, but after getting used to it, I actually quite like the 60's feel of this song.

19 Bible

Absolutely outstanding. Should definitely be higher on this list.

The chorus is what I imagine you'd hear if a white light came down on you from the sky.

20 Absolution

It is my favorite Ghost song! There is no need for any other explanation other than it is amazing and the best!

Just catchy. And his final cry in the Ceremony and Devotion live album is wonderful.

21 Pro Memoria

Very emotional, much like Life Eternal.

22 Mary on a Cross

This song introduced me to Ghost last week. I'm now the proud owner of 4 albums and 3 EPs. Mary on a Cross is still my number 1 song for Ghost.

This song is wonderful! So catchy.

This should be way higher! Everyone loves this song! I see the song all the time on YouTube where people edit it.

23 Witch Image

I mindlessly listen to songs sometimes, but when I actually focused on this song, I searched for the lyrics, learned them by heart, and now sing along every time this song pops up in my playlists. Personally, I think it should be top ten.

Really catchy and melodic song, quite the contrast to the lyrics, which are pretty dark. Should be up there with Cirice, in my opinion.

One of the best choruses I've heard in a long time. Not the best, but definitely should be higher than this.

24 Prime Mover

Obsessive Oyster... Not the actual lyrics, but it makes my 9-year-old sing out loud every time. It's a cool song and one of my favorites for that reason.

25 Faith

Love a good diss-track. Heavy riffs that wobble your ass.
