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 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.

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.

Kellin quinn and vic robbing a bank in the music video. Brilliant.

Post-hardcore is NOT metalcore! That’s what people need to realize. So PtV is the only logical way to vote here... - Mixer

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

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!

Great song, but I never got into the band, apart from A prophecy and Not the American average

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.

Not too good for me though. Just my opinion

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

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..

Lol is the best sound forever, blessthefall is amazing!

This song by far is the best song out of this list it should be number 1

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 and yet they remain consistent in quality. - irongalaxy14

5 Bulls In the Bronx - Pierce the Veil

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 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

This song is awesome but sleepwalking is best

Best song on this list

This soing is deathcore it have nothing to do here

It is a perf song!

8 The Guillotine - Escape the Fate

Amazing song, amazing band

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

This is a good song by ronnie radke and Etf
