Top 10 Best Children of Bodom Songs

The Top Ten
1 Everytime I Die

This song sounds much better and has a much more melodic sound to it than most of their songs and that is a good definition of melodic death metal.

By far the best song of children of bodom way better than angels don't kill.. Its amazing the perfection from the combination between the guitar solos and the keyboard. Great job alexey

Absolutely never get bored of this song. The quality of this song and album is amazing considering they were only 21 years old when they released the album!

My favorite album, all songs here are excellent: Kissing the shadows, Follow the reaper, Bodom after midnight, Hate me, and this, every time I die...

2 Needled 24/7

Should be number one. Catchy as hell, amazing solos, and carries so much more energy and power than every time I Die. I listen to this song full blast every morning to wake me up on the way to work. Just kidding I don't have a job... I'm just a stupid kid posting opinions on the internet.

There is no COB fan that hasn't heard this song...

It contains the best lyrics, riffs, etc.
I don't care if it's the third best song in this list...
It should be the 1st...
And the list should start from 2!

Awesome song... Loved it more than any other... Couldn't stop listening to the guitar solo and I might have listened to the song more than a thousand times!

Sounds like an evil carnival or a video game. First song I ever heard from them many years ago and still a masterpiece.

3 Angels Don't Kill

Everything about this track, from its lyrics, to tactically arranged rhythms and melodies, all absolute perfection. The combination of the solo and the rhythm behind it works so well together. This track is absolutely haunting, in the best possible way : )

With respect for the job that alexi did with every time I die (that is an amazing song)... That song is just NOTHING compared with this great one... Angels don't kill is absolutely the best melodic death metal song ever

I had never heard something more emotional in my life before I discovered this song, it's perfect from start to finish, it's one of those songs that HAS to exist somehow, and COB did it!

There is no way every time I Die is better than this song, because this song owns. Everything about it is absolutely perfect and the solo is their best and one of the best songs of this genre

4 Are You Dead Yet

I think this is a Children Of Bodom's masterpiece. Awesome drums, guitars and voice, this is the best Death Metal song I ever heard. Absolutely fantastic!

I just heard it once, and I'm listening to it all the time. Marvellous song, their best one. There are no words that could describe it, just perfect.

The main riff of this song is the best piece of guitar work I've ever heard. The solo part, rhythm and lead, is simply destructive.

I would choose to listen to this anyday over the melodic "tame" metal of every time I die. I mean metal is supposed to sound like this, right?

5 Downfall

The best Melodic Black Metal song I've ever heard in my whole life. So atmospheric, melodic, haunting and beautiful. Everything is pure genius, courtesy of Alexi, demonic shrieked vocals, total shred duel solo between Alexi and Janne, the guitar lead of Alexander during the choruses, the pitch change at the end, the little bass bridge of Henkka, the eerie keyboard and lyrics... But the best has to be the piano arpeggios, simple beauty mixed with aggressive drumming and singing... Just pure awesomeness.

An absolute classic of Melodic Death Metal, the song that got me into COB, which is one of my favourite bands. A truly headbanging song, as all songs of this album, Hatebreeder is their best album, and where they stood at their best, musically speaking. The riff, the solo, etc... The best solo is undeniably Kissing the Shadows, but this song has to get the cake for being the best COB song, simply amazing!

Totally awesome, only pure gold melodic death/black metal. Alexi voice was at its extreme harsh not to forget to mention the dual solos as well as the hard continuous double drumming bass.

The song that hooked me onto COB. Definitely one of their best! Before this I only listened to songs with clear vocals!

6 Kissing the Shadows

The guitar and keyboard duel solo at the end simply makes the song. Never heard anything like it and this is my most played song in my iTunes library, nothing beats it in my opinion!

This song should be first. Well, every time I Die may be good but doesn't deserve the firs place. This song has better solos and riffs. The guitar duel with keyboard in the outro is absoulutely amazing.

The riff throughout the song is better than most other guitarists solo's and the trade off keyboard/guitar work at the end is so awesome it makes me want to eat my own face.

Good lyrics, best solo of all times. It's the best song ever by anybody. So good. No words can describe this master piece of masterpieces.

7 In Your Face

Despite the terrible lyrics, this is one of the best songs I have heard, and certainly the best from COB.

This song is pure energy, character and strenght. Listening this song makes me feel like If I was able to do everything.

Really cool song. Completely addictive and it's unbelievably coordinated!

This song made me interested in Children of Bodom...
Whenever I hear COB this songs hits my mind

8 Bed of Razors

The song is amazing in all the way that can be described... It must be rated along with every time I die.. Because the solo and the song are very organized and everything is ultimately perfect at this song.. The song is name is enough to describe how good this song is... The solo and the guitars are very on top.. The lyrics kills... Very great... Words can't describe this song.. The words are dying when I try to describe this song...

In my opinion it's the best song, it deals with a contradicting theory, Love which is good, and Cutting which is generally seen as bad. But together it's brilliant. But hands down the music in the song is fantastic

Its an every headbanger song... I hear this song everyday. I just can't stop listening to it. I hear it even when I sleep... But I can't believe that its in such a low rank... It deserves to be in the top three...

Complete Kiss Ass Song.. I headbang to this everyday.. Definitely it deserves to be on top of this list... The guitar in this song is complete orgasm..

9 Hate Me

Beautiful breakdown. Beautiful solo.!
This song deserves Top 10 spot.

19? Needs to be in the top three. Melodic death metal at its very best.

How is this so far done? The Melody alone is exquisite.

It should be in top 3
Awesome as hell!

10 If You Want Peace... Prepare for War

Though this track is not on their best album but it is easily one of their best songs! "If you want peace, prepare for war" is one of the tracks that really me into Bodom! So heavy, so fast, and a very entertaining listen! Right up their with "every time I die"!

Great hard hitting drums at the beginning, amazing guitar solos and such an uplifting spirit!

Goes back and forth between amazing melodic guitar work and crunching chords.

A great song. Not too crazy or deep just fun

The Contenders
11 Hate Crew Deathroll

This song is at no 17?

Can't believe it!

This song has so much energy, so much melody, pure energy, great combination of keyboards, guitar and drums

The guitar riff bridge is also played what great enthusiasm

My very first song by COB!

You want death metal... Well C.O. B give it to you shoved up your ass six feet under... Some of the best riffs iv heard besting one another and alexi displaying the true sense of a genius! All hail C.O. B!

So much energy on this song one of their best it have to be on the top 5 at least

12 Follow the Reaper

This songs solo says a lot about the band and solidified them as one of my favorites for a long time. In my opinion this song should be at the top for them.

This song really should be farther up, it showcases their thrashy, and melodic side wonderfully. That solo is amazing and every time I hear it, its just as awesome as it was one thousand listens ago

The only song that compares to any in flames song. In flames really has more talent but this song shows that CoB at least has some

SO sexxy! Those who haven't listen to coB! Or they want to listen coB! This song would be best!

13 Lake Bodom

I LOVE THIS SONG. Great riff, great vocals, great solo's, great lyrics. One of Bodom's best and will be for years.

Greatest riff in metal. Powerful lyrics. I love how the keyboard plays along with the guitars. A masterpiece.

By far the best from Something Wild, if not their best song ever.

Lake Bodom is the best!

14 Silent Night, Bodom Night

One of the best solo I have ever heard. Heads off towards alexi. Come on folks vote it.. It deserves top 3

Extreme melody and rhythm, their best song I my opinion!

Its only 3 min.. But fully of intense melody in both leads n rhythm.. Just take 3 min of your life to listen to this.. And you'll see how many hours you'll spend enjoying the music from Bodom! CoB rocks! Sry, metals!

Manages to fit the night very well, especially thanks to the harp solo

15 Living Dead Beat

Beautiful riffs and keyboard playing along with the amazing lead altogether this song is a magic.

Best intro ever, especially with a thunderstorm hitting the concert right after it. since I experienced that, this is by far the best cob track for me

This song has de most beautiful intro in the enire world of melodic metal!

The best intro made ever...

16 Bodom Beach Terror

Man! This song should be on the short list of top 10. Good drum intro, good vocals and insane guitar solo in courtesy of the greatest metal guitarist of all time, alexi laiho himself.. This song is brutal!

The guitar and the part where he says "Bodom beach Terroor! " gives me a high every time I hear it. And the chorus which follows, wow. Should be way above in the list, if not first!

Spectacular drum intro and good solo, but the best part is by far the chorus. This is certainly my fave COB song, and is the best COB song for partiez.

Wash your hands in the lake of your blood! Just before you die!

17 Trashed, Lost, and Strungout

Fantastic song! I don't see why its not in the top 10. I don't like any songs in the top 10 other than Are You Dead Yet?. One of the best metal songs I've ever heard. And where is Was It Worth It? That's also one of my favorites.
1. Trashed, Lost and Strungout
2. Blooddrunk
3. Was It Worth It?
4. If You Want Peace... Prepare for War
5. Are You Dead Yet?

The song that got me into Children Of Bodom!

18 The Nail

This song... As well as the whole album "Something Wild" completely rocks.

19 Black Widow

How is this not in the top ten? This song is very playful and has a touch of Mozart/Bach in it, too. Relatively short, though unbelievably rich in harmony and structure. Easily one of my all time favorite COB songs!

Agreed. This amazing song needs more love.

20 Sixpounder

The power, the riffs, the solos. Should be AT LEAST in the top 10 without a doubt. It just comes and crushes you and leaves you without anything left in you, except awe.

Some songs are born to be played loudly-real loudly!

This and Angels Don't Kill are perfection. The solo gets me every time

By far their best song. Never gets old!

21 Morrigan

The best new cob song.

Single from 'I worship chaos' to be released on Oct 2nd. Brilliant song

Should be higher

22 Children of Decadence

Awesome playing and screaming. It should be at least in top five. Because it deserves Alexis efforts to be on top.

Found a totally oversampled midi techno remix of this track. Horrendously addictive melody lines here. How is this not top 10? Incredible.

Hey how come this song be at 16..? It should be ranked 1st! This is the greatest metal song I have ever heard in my entire life

So much complaining about the song being this low, your talking about a classic band there is going to be at least 25 songs that can be in the number 1 spot

23 Transference

Awesome solos...I love this song

24 Children of Bodom

The flow on this song is probably one of their best ever. The melodies and riffs are great and the keyboard really stands out.
The energy this song radiates is so powerful you just want to murder your neighbour.

Great song... Nothing more to say about it the guitar riffs are awesome plus alexis vocal are outstanding

This is their anthem!

25 Hexed

Their 2019 album, Hexed, is awesome!
