Top 10 Post-hardcore / Metalcore Songs


The Top Ten

1 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

This is the reason I listen to metal. This song defines metal/metalcore. This is the anthem.

Amazing song.Why is Knives and Pens,number 1? It's a terrible song and just some angsty cringefest.Sure this song is angsty but it's actually good.This song or Not The American Average should be number 1.Some other Bullet For My Valentine songs I recommend are Waking the demon and Your Betrayal.-DarkBoi-X

BVB SUCKS! - Mikbiter15

2 Knives and Pens - Black Veil Brides

Yes! This song is great. I do hope they put perfect weapon as one of the top five though...

This song is legendary, but Perfect Weapon is better to be honest.

Helped me through a lot.. I just love the band a lot!

3 Situations - Escape the Fate

Awesome riffs, great vocals. Escape the Fate is an all around great band!

I don't have any idea. JUST THE BEST DUDE

4 I'm Made of Wax, Larry, What are You Made Of? - A Day to Remember

BEST SONG EVER. This has been my favorite song for months and no matter how many times I play it it never era old NEVER

This song is just fantastic, everything about it, deserves to be #1

This song is seriously amazing. Easily deserves the no. 1 spot!

Where's Downfall of us all on this list?

8 Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad - Bless the Fall

I love the riff intro.

This song, is very meaningful. You don't see every band making a song about Bulling. And this song helps when I get bullied

Seriously? I'm about to rattle off like 20 or so songs FAR better than ANYTHING in this current mockery of a list. Starting with Chelsea Smile right above.

16 Let Live - Of Mice & Men
17 This War Is Ours - Escape the Fate

The guillotine songs are the three best post-hardcore songs in the entire world by the best band in the world.

This is the best song by this band and the best song from this style at all as well.

18 In Waves - Trivium

Nice! - EliHbk

19 The Final Episode - Asking Alexandria
20 Captain Blood - Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!
21 Unholy Confessions - Avenged Sevenfold
22 The Common Hours - I See Stars
23 3D - I See Stars
24 Assistant to the Regional Manager - The Devil Wears Prada
25 The Common Good - I, the Breather

Wow the instrumentals in this song are top of the line

26 Destroyer - I, the Breather
27 Love, Lust and Liars - I Prevail

A newer band with an amazing sound.

28 The Cali Buds - A Skylit Drive

This song is amazing best in the album but who ever mad this list needs to be more creative and out of the box more I only saw 4 decent songs here

29 In Friends We Trust - Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!
30 Born for Adversity - Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!

37 Doomsday - I, the Breather
38 High Rise - I, the Breather
39 Allspark - I, the Breather
40 RVG - Capture the Crown
41 Still Searching - Senses Fail

This song just pulls on your heartstrings and makes you reach into the deepest, darkest, most depressing part of your mind and makes you think about all of the things you've been through. This song should be at least in the top 10. The chorus can make you emotional. These lyrics are so meaningful. Buddy really knows how to write songs. The chorus just gets to me every time I hear it.

42 The Fallout - Crown the Empire
43 Casting Such a Thin Shadow - Underoath
44 My Heroine - Silverstein
