Best Jimmy Eat World Songs

The Top Ten
1 The Middle

This song has helped out so many people with their own problems, and it's catchy, the vocals are amazing, the guitar and solo are epic, and it's upbeat and will sure leave you listening for the entire song. One of the greatest pop punk songs of all time.

I used to be really unpopular at my school, but then I showed everyone this song and now I only get beaten up three times a week! Thank you Mr Jimmy Eat World (if that is your real name)!

There was a time in the early part of the 2000s (2001) where so many good rock songs came out. And this song is one of them.

2 23

The first time I heard this song, I made peace with guaranteed eventual death. It's not just the best Jimmy Eat World song, it's the most beautiful song of all time. There are others that are more fun, more catchy, more dancy, more experimental, but there are none this perfect in an indescribable way. This song can teach anyone to reflect on their life -- not many others can do that!

The Middle gets far too much credit as it is the bands most popular work. 23 is the finest song that Jimmy Eat World has created in all aspects. The songwriting is utter perfection and it is executed beautifully. There are every few songs in this world that are this caliber of song. VOTE FOR IT

3 Bleed American

This is what the top five on the list should look like:

1. The Middle
2. Pain
3. A Praise Chorus
4. Bleed American
5. Sweetness

Get it sorted please, this list is really messed up at the moment!

Brilliant song and even better album one of the only albums I can listen to all the way through without skipping a track.

This song is what got me into Jimmy Eat World. If only all of their songs were like this.

4 Pain

This beats The middle! Pain always gets me in a good mood, just because it is so upbeat. Not to mention the cool 2nd verse. It takes my pain away!

This song hooks just anyone up aka this song rocks! It does take my pain away!

They best hard rock ever man! Also, this song in Smallville boils my nerves!

5 Sweetness

I don't listen to Jimmy Eat World much anymore but this song still plays in my head every now and then. One of the most memorable songs of my childhood too

Awesome song, very different from their usual songs and just great drums guitar and lush vocals!

Not the first Jimmy Eat World song I heard but it is definitely the best!

6 Kill

Great melody and awesome lyrics. For me "You kill me, you build me up but just to watch me break" is one of the best song lines I've ever heard. In my opinion their best song!

Easily my favourite song of all time, let alone Jew song.
Lyrically and melodically phenomenal.

One of their first songs I ever heard and I have to admit: I fell in love with their music...

7 A Praise Chorus

A seemingly simple song packing a fitting sentiment about the power of music. An all time favourite. Seeing Jew play it at a festival, squeezed right up the front, sun setting peach & purple, looking up at the sky shouting 'I wanna always feel like part of this was mine' was one of the most perfect moments of my life. Still gives me chills. Praise chorus indeed!

The first song I ever listened to by them. Absolutely amazing, and the best song I've heard by them. Sweetness comes in a close second, but this song really is just absolutely fantastic. 10 out of 10 recommend.

8 Hear You Me

Hear You Me is far better than any other song by Jimmy Eat World. No other song they made can hold a candle to this one.

Perhaps one of the most beautiful songs ever created.

A beautiful beautiful song. Really touches my heart every time I hear it. Jimmy Eat World has sung such a emotional and breathtaking song. I am very young but I am very fortunate I got to hear it.

Amazing song... I first heard it in the movie "The Butterfly Effect" and was instantly addicted to it... If you haven't heard of it yet then go and listen!

9 Work

This is a very, very nice song..
I really love it!
This guys really rock... They are one of the best emo band in the world...
And for me, this song proves it..

This and "Kill" are two of most well-formed pop songs I've ever heard, and they're back to back on the album. Talk about a double-header.

I think it's like on a work place.

10 Get It Faster

Get it faster is my favorite song by the band, however I'm a little sad that nothing from clarity made top ten.

The Contenders
11 Nothing Wrong

This is such an underrated song. It's got so much energy and emotion.

12 For Me This is Heaven

"For Me This is Heaven" sets Jimmy Eat World's most common tone through their entire existence since 99's Clarity album. Lyrically, the band is immaculate, with this song serving as a prime and pioneering example with lines like "The first star I see may not be a star" (see Konstantine by Something Corporate), and "Do you still feel the butterflies? Can you still hear the last goodbyes? ".

13 Polaris

This song should definitely be at least under the top 10! It's such a amazing song. "I feel that when I'm old, I'll look at you and know: The world was beautiful." Please listen to this song, you won't regret it, I swear!

One of their beautiful ones. It deserves to be at least in the Top10. It has that magic sound that envolves other Futures's themes like Kill or 23. Trust me, Polaris deserves from your time those almost 5 minutes that it lasts

Amazing song but even more amazing in how the hell it isn't in the countdown

14 Just Tonight

Easily their best song along with bleed American, the lyrics of this song are about sex

15 Closer
16 If You Don't, Don't
17 Big Casino

The raw energy of this song makes it the third in a row for perfect energetic openers of a Jew album (after Bleed American and Futures).

Amazing song, good sound by band and amazing vocals. Jimmy eat world never fail to impress.

18 My Best Theory

Great song.. Their first song that I heard and fell in love as soon as I heard it.. And its one of their best to.. I think it deserves to be in top 3..

19 Disintegration

The layers of sound in the song are so amazing, and depressing tone of the song make it reminiscent of static prevails, almost even sounding like something Trent Reznor produced.

Unfortunately, this song never got the attention or recognition it deserved. Dark, deeply melodic, haunting and epic, this song should easily be in the top ten.

How is this not in the top 5, the music is great the chorus is great and of course the lyrics is the best part

20 Appreciation
21 Always Be

I for sure thought this would be first on the list. This song was the second song I heard by Jimmy Eat World, the first being The Middle. This is the one that got me into the band! Its absolutely incredible.

22 Futures
23 Let It Happen

This may be my favorite song of all time. It may be lesser known, but it is incredible and deserves a listen from everyone!

This should be in the top ten. Very catchy and one of the best songs by them. I listen to it 24/7

24 Here It Goes
25 Last Christmas
