Best Sabaton Songs

The Top Ten
1 To Hell and Back

As a listener with a taste for melodic songs, To Hell And Back is one of my "prototypes for a hit". A catchy (headbanging in other genres) rhythm, a strong melody and a contrasting song structure: that's all I wanted. This particular song has it all for me, so, though I reckon Sabaton has produced many good songs such as Shiroyama, Sparta, Metal Crüe or Back In Control, there's no debate for me. To Hell And Back is my favorite song of my favorite power metal band (excuse me, DragonForce).

Very catchy and a good melody. I love this song. I love the beginning it reminds me of one those stupid car commercial songs though, but it's still really good. I loveee this song though so I'm not complaining.

I cannot get over the epic (As per all Sabaton songs) instrumentals, chills always go down my spine. Amazing!

2 Carolus Rex

Second best Sabaton song after Bismarck. The Swedish version is the better one by far.

The lyrics are simply just powerful.
It's amazing how they get so much into character!

Swedish version of Carolus Rex is the best song sabaton have ever done.

3 The Last Stand

Heavy metal brutes singing "for the grace, for the might of our lord"? What could beat that?

The one that made me discover Sabaton, and since then, I simply fall in love with the band !

It reminds me of Joan of Arc in a way (the refrain). It's still an excellent song.

4 Ghost Division

This song, Ghost division, puts pure emphasis on how swift, effective, and efficient Erwin Rommel was, the Desert fox of Africa, and the winner of the first Tour de France is the General Robert E. Lee of his time, an amazing general, and soldier. but he fought for the wrong side of history, and is seen purely as the bad guy.

One of the more "metal" songs that I like. I has some great riffs and an awesome theme.

Enough metal to supply the Eiffel Tower for a whole year!

5 Primo Victoria

I don't know, it just feels better than all the like, 30 sabaton songs that I've heard.

Easily the best of the many EPIC songs by my favorite band Sabaton!

Primo Victoria must be 1st! It's the most Sabaton'ish song they made and has the best solo.

6 The Lost Battalion

This song like Into the Fire is told from the perspective of an american soldier, only instead of the jungles of Vietnam, he is trapped in the Argonne forest as he and the rest of Liberty Division stand strong against the German attackers. Refusing to surrender, choosing Victory or Death. This battle is why the USA chooses Spartans as symbols of freedom. Because Spartans are the only other warrior that can hold that line in such horrid conditions.

The story is told along to a beat-bed of guns bayonets and pure Sabaton metal!

I love this song with my heart.

7 Night Witches

It's great to show the world things and topics that are often overlooked due to ignorence and no respect. I love the lyrics and music. Absolutly deserves a higher rank.

Absolutely amazing song, powerful lyrics that really moved me, very driving tone that really seems to put it away.

Should definitely be much higher than that. Truly an amazing song!

8 The Price of a Mile

With this song you really feel how crappy the battle of passchendaele ridge was, how brutal it was with the lines "6 miles of ground has been won, half a million men are gone"

Truly describes the horrors of WW1.

Gives me chills every time.

9 Uprising

A great song that tells an amazing story. What more could you ask for from Sabaton?

A beautiful song for the men, women and children who fought for polish freedom.

Poland's suffering in the 20th century is ismeasurable and I love the music and lyrics.

10 Shiroyama

Simply put, the amount of balls a man has to have to put himself in a situation without salvation is abysmal.

I would never forget the first time I heard this song, definitely my favourite of all time.

Anything starting with "it is the nature of time," gains a few points from me.

The Contenders
11 Bismarck

This song is beautiful and perfect. I know the lyrics by heart (please don't ask me to sing) and it is made even better with scenes from World Of Warships Wargaming. An absolute masterpiece.

My favorite. Every time I hear it it's just amazing. I love the story of the Bismark and this song has such a good rhythm to it.

This song simply has a good feeling hanging over it, and the lyrics are great too.

12 40:1

The good song. "Baptised in fire, forty to one"- I know more, but I don't want to write it all

A wonderful song.

13 Screaming Eagles

The story of the Screaming Eagles (the 101st Airborne division) was so fantastic, so action packed, and so brutal, that they not only made this song so metal you could supply Erwin Rommel for a year. But they made a show about the Battered Bastards of Bastogne! These guys held off the fury of the Wehrmacht at full throttle, something France, Poland, the UK, and even the USSR failed to do! The Battle of the Bulge is the battle in WWII where Germany started taking america seriously, because you don't hear anything like "the battered bastards of bastogne" for any other battle.

Bloody best! Coat of Arms was Sabaton's best album in my opinion, and Screaming Eagles is the best song from that album.

Screaming Eagles is an amazing song! Other great ones are
Ghost Division, Art of War, Price of a Mile, Coat of Arms, Uprising, Aces in Exile, Poltava and Far From the Fame

14 Resist and Bite

This song is about the stand of a dutch battalion of soldiers, I'm still researching the battle but the soldiers held their ground against the German War-machine while it was at its best! and they even held back Rommel's Ghost Division. They made the Germans think they were a unit about 40 strong, but they were only a company! they laughed at the faces of their Nazi interrogators said they were turly the Boar vs. the Eagle, and they honnored their last orders, Resiste Et Mords, in English, Resist and Bite.

Resist and Bite! Why is it so low? Top 10 quality song if you ask me. Maybe even Top 6! I love when they say Resist and bite in this song.

Fight all eighteen days of battles, no odds are on our side. Few will fight for hours until the bullets are gone.

15 The Art of War

Sun Tzu was famous for his tactics. Very good song

Why the hell is this on place 34?!

Just totally badass.

16 Coat of Arms

One of the best sabaton songs out there! I really like the beat and the transition from the old hellenic times of greece, to protecting their lands in ww2.

This is a song about a moment in history unfortunately most historians choose to skip over! The Greco-Italian war is my absolute favorite part of WWII to learn about! This song is the song that brought me to the YouTube channel Sabaton History, that brought me to Indy Neidell, he gave me a massive interest in History, and a knack to learn more about it.

Greece holding off an entire axis power by themselves.

17 Panzerkampf

The end of the third Reich draws near
It's time has come to an end
The end of an era is here
It's time to attack!

It was the first Sabaton song I've ever heard and it's just EPIC!

More patriotic than all of russian war songs combined.

18 Sparta

The Spartans never surrendered, but this song makes me surrender my vote!

It's more accurate than most documentaries and they know it.

19 Winged Hussars

Just such a great song and music. As with many of Sabaton's songs, I just had to know more about the history and battle it represented! Thank you Sabaton's history channel!.

Among my friends and I this song inspired the most epic if totally dumb Age of Empires strategy. It basically became a meme for us. Also, the energy of the Chorus is just nuts.

A song and a story that reminds me to be proud of being Polish!

20 The Final Solution

So sad yet they make an epic song. Obvioulsy whilst enjoying it you feel they heavy weight of the mass genocide and discrimmination. Very well done. I wouldn't be surprised if they were nervous about doing this song, I would.

Where war brings out both the good and bad in men, The Final Solution tells about the very worst event to have taken place within history. Also, lyrics and especially the chorus are amazing.

This is at 19, that should not be, not only is it one of the best songs from a musical perspective, but the subject matter sends shivers through your spine, propelling it up to top 5 at least.

21 Attero Dominatus

This song puts EMPHASIS on how brutal the Soviets were to the Germans, in 1945 and how brutal the Germans were to the Soviets in 1942 onward.

It is a good song. Why so underrated?

Really underrated song.

22 Cliffs of Gallipoli

As someone who is Australian I kinda can't resist loving this song. I still love it nonetheless and I don't believe in the propaganda "the fought for our freedom" but I just love on how they focus on the sadness and horridness of the situation. Many of them were VERY YOUNG, TOO YOUNG and the British wouldn't send help! What Churchill.

This and Price of a Mile both excellently capture the tragedy of the War to End All Wars. It captures the lives lost, and truly how dreadful war is.

Who said Sabaton are belicists? Nothing speaks better of the horrors of war than this emotional song

23 Rorke's Drift

Every time I read the name of this song the guitar at the beginning. And when I hear the song I immediately want to watch ZULU, a movie also about the battle of Rouke's Drift.

I just love the guitar work in the song its unlike most of the other ones

One of my favorites I love the rhythm and the lyrics one of the more underrated Sabaton songs

24 Into the Fire

This song, if for some reason you haven't heard it, is told from the perspective of an American soldier during the Vietnam War. While Sabaton has Hundreds of songs about the World Wars, and hundreds more about periods after that. Sabaton only has one song about Vietnam, this being it. And holy crapola does it not disappoint! Just read the Lyrics and you know it's about 'Nam.
"I feel! My fire starts to burn! the heat! controlling my mind! Napalm! is burning us alive! within me the beasts final roar! Now I'm ready to strike!"

First Sabaton song that caught my attention. Great opening guitar riff. Catchy song. I like the way the lyrics tell the story from the point of view of a soldier as he lands in an unfamiliar land (Vietnam) and the horrors as his platoon is being ambushed and burned by napalm from their own planes. You get the feeling of what it would be like to be there. Great song.

25 White Death

I think this song should be up on the list. It is a great song and it is based off of a real person

I am voting this over Coat of Arms. I am Greek.
