Top Ten Post-Hardcore Songs

These are the best post hardcore songs of all time.
The Top Ten
1 King for a Day - Pierce the Veil

This is an amazing song. Not a lot of people I know are into it, but anyone with a liking for post-hardcore will adore King for a Day. It was my first ever post-hardcore song, and it sparked my love for the genre.

Love it. I believe that this definitely should be in the top three.

I think this song should be at the top of the list. This is my favorite post-hardcore song by far. Pierce the Veil pairs amazing lyrics with the fantastic vocals of both Kellin and Vic. All of the instruments fit perfectly.

2 The Final Episode (Let's Change the Channel) - Asking Alexandria

Asking Alexandria is truly one of those bands that stand out in the post-hardcore scene. The vocals are just one contributing factor to this particular song.

The instrumentation is brutal and edgy, yet very grounded too. It's a good track to headbang to. Also, mixing electronic elements into the sound is just one of those things that makes Asking Alexandria stand out and makes The Final Episode shine on the album.

Asking Alexandria is one of those post-hardcore bands that stand out from the rest. They mix electronic synths with heavy drumming and hard-hitting guitars to create a seamless, integrated sound.

The Final Episode is just a standout track from an already fantastic album.

3 You Wear a Crown but You're No King - Blessthefall

This is for sure the best band in the world, and they certainly deserve all the prizes. They always surprise and never disappoint. I'm proud to have them as a favorite band.

Pretty technical, not generic!

This song is by far the best on this list. It should be number one.

4 The Artist In the Ambulance - Thrice

It's a shame that Thrice doesn't get as much recognition as they deserve. They are one of the most versatile bands in terms of style, yet they remain consistent in quality.

5 Bulls In the Bronx - Pierce the Veil

This was the first song that got me into this whole genre. I praise Pierce the Veil.

6 Hospital for Souls - Bring Me the Horizon

This song is incredibly powerful and has such a strong message. This piece of music speaks to you and asks how you feel about the situation in your life.

Being realistic, sometimes we all feel like we should be in a hospital for souls. We feel like we are slowly burning. This song will take your breath away.

7 F**k - Bring Me the Horizon
8 The Downfall of Us All - A Day to Remember
9 If You Can't Hang - Sleeping With Sirens

You can't have the top 10 best post-hardcore bands without one of their best songs in the top 10.

The first post-hardcore song I heard. I instantly loved it.

10 The Guillotine - Escape the Fate

To be honest, I think The Guillotine 2 is better, but if this is considering all three, I couldn't agree more. The screams are okay, but the lyrics and guitar are absolutely fantastic.

The Contenders
11 This War is Ours - Escape the Fate

Amazing. All the Guillotine songs by the best band in the world are the top three for me.

Amazing song. The screams, the guitar riffs, and the drumming are absolutely awesome.

12 My Apocalypse - Escape the Fate

Dudes! I'm new to this song, and it's 2016, so I know I'm late to the party, but it is the best ever!

Epic screaming and melodic guitar parts! Just one of my favorite songs ever!

Literally my favorite song ever. So happy to see it in this top ten.

13 Seven Years - Saosin

This song is part of one of the greatest post-hardcore EPs ever. Saosin is amazing.

Absolutely incredible lyrics and drums.

14 Jonathan - Ice Nine Kills
15 Annabel - Alesana

This band is my all-time favorite post-hardcore band because of On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax.

16 Sex Life - Destroy Rebuild Until Shows
17 The Sky Under the Sea - Pierce the Veil

This is an amazing song. Some people may not agree with me, but the lyrics are consuming.

18 Immaculate Misconceptions - Motionless in White

This song explains so much. If you listen to the lyrics, you can probably relate to them. Motionless in White rocks!

Amazing song and message! Definitely their best song! Highly recommended!

19 What's Left of Me - Blessthefall

I just love this song. Also, Blessthefall is amazing. Best band and best song.

20 The Thespian - Alesana

This song gives me chills, but I absolutely adore it!
