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 King for a Day - Pierce the Veil Cover Art

This is an amazing song. Not a lot of people I know are into it, but anyone with a liking to post hardcore will adore King for a Day. It was my first ever post hardcore song, and it made me grasp my liking to it. Love it. I believe that this definitely should be in the top three though.

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

The most musical and talented Post Hardcore band I have every heard. They knocked it out of the park on this song. I have been looking for a long time, and I cannot find a band that I like more at all. Pierce the Veil all the way.

Vic and kellin's voices together is genius. this was one of the first post-hardcore songs I ever heard, ptv was actually the first band I listened to, and this and Bulls In The Bronx will always be the best to be honest.

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

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, very grounded too. A good track to headbang to.
Also mixing electronic into the mix 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 stands out from the rest.
Mixing electronic synths with heavy drumming and hard hitting guitars to a seamless intergrated sound. The Final Episode is just a stand out track from an already Fantastic album.

Are you kidding me?! This song is amazing! Asking Alexandria is fantastic band! This song, along with may other songs from them, should be at the top!

I'm a huge AA fan and this is one of my favorite songs from then but I dint think it's a number one it should at least be in top 5 though.

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

For sure this is the best band in the world and it certainly deserves all the prizes in the world. They always surprise and never disappoint, I'm proud to have you as a favorite band

Love this song and bless the fall but I don't think this is post hardcore like most of their songs I thought it was metalcore..

This is metalcore, not post-hardcore.

Pretty technical, not generic!

4 The Artist In the Ambulance - Thrice The Artist In the Ambulance - Thrice Cover Art

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 and yet they remain consistent in quality.

Absolutely amazing. Thrice may not be popular, but they influenced most of the bands on this idiotic list.

Come on, this should be number 1!

5 Bulls In the Bronx - Pierce the Veil Bulls In the Bronx - Pierce the Veil Cover Art

First song that got me into this whole genre. I praise Pierce The Veil.

6 Hospital for Souls - Bring Me the Horizon Hospital for Souls - Bring Me the Horizon Cover Art

This song is incredibly powerful and has such a strong message. This piece of music speaks to you and asks you how you feel about the situation in your life. Bein 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 F**k - Bring Me the Horizon Cover Art

Best song on this list

8 The Downfall of Us All - A Day to Remember The Downfall of Us All - A Day to Remember Cover Art

Best song ever

Can't have them in the top 10 best post hardcore bands without one of their best songs in the top 10.

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

10 The Guillotine - Escape the Fate The Guillotine - Escape the Fate Cover Art

To be honest I think the guillotine 2 is better but if this is considering all 3 I couldn't agree more. Screams are ok but lyrics and guitar and absolutely orgasmic.

Like a running in circle, but this song is very different.. forza mabbit yeah

The Contenders
11 This War is Ours - Escape the Fate This War is Ours - Escape the Fate Cover Art

Amazing. All the Guillotine songs by the best band in the world are the top 3 for me.

Amazing song. The screams, the guitar riffs, the drumming. Absolutely awesome.
