Best Queensryche Songs

The Top Ten
1 Eyes of a Stranger

One of the most addicting and evergreen Metal Song of 80s. Operation Mindcrime, Empire & Rage for Order are Queensryche Finest. Chris Degarmo's Departure sadly reversed the fortunes of this band.

Caps of the album and story perfectly. Hearing all the sounds from the album in the last few seconds is magical and it feels complete.

Very surprised that my top track off of Mindcrime is topping the list. A masterpiece indeed. Thank you Mom for opening my ears.

2 Silent Lucidity

Without a doubt the best song ever written in Queensryche history, it brings out so much sense that it can be compared to Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb'.

DeGarmo was and will always be the genius behind the band's success.

Silent Lucidity is a very clear example of the pure art of writing great music.

I remember listening to this for the very first time that it certainly got me into Queensryche.
This is not just a song, it's a melancholy that would match with your sadness(if you are) any time. The concept upon which its written is also fabulous and proves to be one of those greatest songs ever written.

3 Queen of the Reich

Probably the best metal song of all time, not only the best Queensryche song. It never loses its uncanny power and air of suspense. Far better than Silent Lucidity or Eyes of a Stranger, this is the ultimate driving tune.

This song deserves more than any other to be number one. It was the first song I heard by them and by far better than Eyes of a Stranger

Queen of the reich got me into queensryche. To be only 4 minutes long and melt your face away! Classic METAL!

4 Suite Sister Mary

It is not just a queensryche song it is a metal masterpiece and it's one of my favourite songs by the band.

5 Empire

My favorite song from queensryche. The song is followed closely by operation mindcrime eyes of a stranger and suite sister mary

6 Take Hold of the Flame

Although the whole mindcrime disc is mindblowing, the vocals and sheer passion in this song is mindblowing. Very emotional like much of their music. Awesome band both live and studio.

Unquestionably Queensryche's best in my estimation. Just a goosebump inducing song all the way through!

This is the stairway to heaven, the child in time of Queensryche just a mind blowing masterpiece

7 Roads to Madness

This is the ultimate Queensryche epic, better than "Suite Sister Mary" in my opinion, should definitely be much higher!

8 Jet City Woman

It's their best song of Empire after silent lucidity and one of my favourite Queensryche songs.

Jet city woman it should be way higher on the list the solos make this the best on empire.

It features one of the best vocals by Geoff Tate and a very good chorus, it deserves
it's place on the list.

9 The Mission

A very powerful and underrated OM... Could easily be on the top of this list... Brilliantly done from start to finish.

As I was typing that Breaking The Silence should be #1, I thought "what about The Mission"... 'enough said...

One of my favourite songs as haunting deserves to be higher right next to eye's of a stranger

10 Revolution Calling

The lyrics are more relevant today than they were in 1988!

The Contenders
11 Operation: Mindcrime

The whole album Op Mindcrime is genius and my favorite. Hard to to pick one.

12 I Don't Believe in Love

This song is so powerful and unique, from its emotionally charged opening riff to its hard-driving beat and cynical lyrics, the perfect companion when driving around and feeling sad about some past romance gone bad.

This is probably my second favorite song. Geoff Tate is brilliant. His amazing 4 octave range is so impressive. It sends chill's down my spine and the hairs on my arms stand up. Please check out some of these songs.

This song earned them a Grammy nomination and they deserve it because they made good music.

13 Spreading the Disease

Absolutely LOVE this song... Any Operation Mindcrime song could be #1 but this one should be way up on the list!

Awesome heavy metal. Should be in top 5.

14 The Lady Wore Black

This is the song that put them on the Metal Map... Too bad they don't remember it! They need to get back to the early days of mind blowing lyrics and performance.

15 Speak

As relevant now as it ever was, and oh so blistering and heavy! LOVE this one more than all the others.

16 Breaking the Silence

I think this should be higher on the list. This song rocks!

Insanely good song for driving fast at night. Epic.

One of their best songs. It should be in the top ten.

17 Best I Can

Makes a man want to be the best man that he can!

18 Another Rainy Night

Not their normal type of song, but this song is AMAZING! Come on, I can't listen to Queensryche without listening to this song. It relates back to their home town of Seattle, and the feeling in this song is great! Queensryche at it's best if you ask me.

19 Walk in the Shadows

Rage for Order is my favorite Queensryche album. I'd have I Only See in Infrared and London on this list too.

Mine too. Every Song is a best of song! Best album ever. We Are Rebellion or Neue Regel and and and!

This Is literally one of the best Songs ever. Way to Low, I Love it

20 The Killing Words

The most underrated song from them. Such a classic.

21 The Whisper

I believe this song is about an Occult ritual. Really evil guitar riff and lyrics. Huge, epic. My fave after Eyes.

22 NM 156

Really powerful guitar riffs and drumming. Love the lyrics, seems very politically motivated. Excellent song.

Is logic just a sentiment got this savagery?

23 Screaming In Digital
24 Anybody Listening?

This honestly needs to be higher on the list-this is really a beautiful song.

Think for yourself and feel the walls become sand beneath your feet.

Most passionate song by them, most meaning, plus the guitar can't be beat

25 The Chase

Simply perfect song, a masterpiece! Geoff Tate singing with Ronnie James Dio... a perfect duet!
