Top Ten Rise Against Songs

The Top Ten

Savior Savior Cover Art

The lyrics and melody are fantastic. The greatest most super awesome song ever written by Rise Against.. It's like listening to god and all his angels sing.

It's an Incredible song. Definitely my favorite because of the awesome fast and slow parts throughout. Plus the beat is like contagious.

Amazing this song is the best one that they have, personally I find it much better than prayer of a refugee... though hat is definitely second.

I'm not saying it isn't a good song because I love all of their songs, but... I can't understand how this song is the most rated one. No way.

I can understand that people who barely know rise against, knowing just this song and 2-3 more, might pick this one. But for someone who really listens to rise against, there are sooo many better songs than this one (audience of one, paper wings, blood to bleed, broken English, black masks and gasoline, this is letting go, from heads unworthy... Just to mention some of them, for me are so much better than savior)

Don't wanna convince anyone though. Just couldn't help it inside

Prayer of the Refugee Prayer of the Refugee Cover Art

Yep, seems almost like someone was actually telling a true story

The lyrics, the beat... wonderful.

Great lyrics to pump me up before a rugby match

The verse starts soft before the chorus smacks you right in the face. It's the first song I ever heard from Rise Against and I still listen on repeat

Hero of War Hero of War Cover Art

this song truly describes what war is all about, not just what the world wants to tell you, their best song and the most deep and meaningful lyrics of any song I've listened to, Rise Against all the way!

This is the best war song I have ever heard.

When I played it for him, it pissed my dad off without him understanding why. He asked, annoyed, "what was it about? " I said, "war is hell. " He agreed with that much, at least.

This is just a great song and it shares with us why we should be thankful for our United States, and it's been around my childhood for as long s I remember this is my favorite song out of this album. It just truly states what war is about and what would happen if we didn't win World War 1 or 2? Would we even be here? Freedom of speech? Freedom of religion? Would that even exist if it wasn't for our Veterans? That is why I love this song. You have to know the meaning of the songs to actually enjoy them. If you don't why even HAVE songs? That is why I LOVE this song. " It's a flag that I trust "

The Good Left Undone The Good Left Undone Cover Art

I like all of Rise Against's song. I first found Rise
Against through a risky buy of their album Appeal to Reason(having only heard Reeducation). Since that moment I was a die-hard fan.

Though I like all their songs, I will share with you some of my favorites and why I like them, by album in no particular order.

Audience of One: An instant favorite from my first listen of Appeal to Reason. Its still as great now as when I first heard it.

From Heads Unworthy: I passed over this and many others with my first listen of the album. But after another listen, I took a particular liking to it, especially the pre chorus.

The Strength to Go On: One of the ones I passed over, after an intensive listen I fell in love. "What we are is the sum of a thousand lies. What we know is almost nothing at all. We are, we are, til the day we die. Or until we don't have the strength to go on, til we don't have the strength to go o-o-on. "

Others songs ...more

This song is unlike any other. The beats go from slow to fast and leave you utterly entertained. When I hear this song, I feel it and I can't say that about very many songs. They are my Nirvana.

This is my favorite song ever, I absolutely love it. When I first heard it, I listened to it over and over, I live and breathe The Good Left Undone. It's the rhythm of my life. Rise Against is unlike anything you'll ever hear. So say what you want, but I'm in it for life.

The change in tempo is great and sounds even better when they do it live. The meaning behind the song is deep also as with most rise against songs

Re-Education (Through Labor) Re-Education (Through Labor) Cover Art

Great song. Rise against always writes songs that have meaning and address the issues in our world today.

The way this song starts is just amazing. I could listen to it all day. This and prayer of refugee are my favorites!

They have many awesome songs, but none of them can top this amazing song!

I am in love with this song. The guitar riff in the beginning is amazing, and the moment when the music stops and all you can hear is the lead singer's voice makes this song surprising and spectacular. This song is definitely my favorite.

Satellite Satellite Cover Art

The best song on the new album "Endgame". This should be in the top at least for sure. Vote Satellite!

One of the best albums I have heard in a while is endgame and this is the best song on it!

By far the best song from the new album, this song has shot into my Top 5 of all time!

When you've heard this song over 100 times and loved it just the same, maybe even more, you know this is a good song. It's pretty much my favorite Rise Against song and if it isn't their best song, it deserves to be in the top 5. The song is so epic, it's nearly unbearable! Do yourself a favor and listen to this song ASAP. Then show it to your friends. You'll be the most respected person in your group of friends. That's what the Satellite can do for U. So to conclude, best Rise Against song there is. No contest.

Give It All Give It All Cover Art

awesome song! heard it on need for speed underground 2 first and loved it!

Love this song! This was my reason to listen and know more about Rise Against! Its just epic! Always on my ipod!

Flatout 2 is responsible for me getting addicted to this awesome band's mindblowing songs! I was just blown away when I heard it for the first time!

It is the most inspirational song I have ever heard...Just fill me with a ton of energy...It tells me that I have to completely dedicate myself to the job at hand...The lyrics are superb and the music is just phenomenal... Incredible job by rise against! Their finest work in my opinion...

Swing Life Away Swing Life Away Cover Art

I really love this song. It's calm and refreshing after listening to some of their other songs. It perfectly describes how one should live: loving and care-free. Who cares if you have a low paying job? As long as your making it, you'll be fine. There's probably some deeper meaning in this song, but I like the simple ideas presented. THIS SHOULD BE HIGHER!

It's the only song that I can sing along to, definitely one of the best songs I've heard in a while. Rise Against all the way. Please make more songs like this!

Beautiful song, it makes me want to cry. It's use of descriptive words throughout, along with beautiful guitar make it irresistible to listen to over & over again.

You can sing along to good songs, but great songs bring emotion to the listener. This song just has so much emotion in the vocals and the guitar. Rise against is a good band, but this will always be the song I remember them by.

Make It Stop (September's Children) Make It Stop (September's Children) Cover Art

Makes me cry every time I see the videoclip... Probably one of the best songs I've heard, with a wonderful meaning

I've been suicidal and this song is totally my anthem. It is so moving and I honestly cry like hell when I listen to it or watch the video. Think of the september children and what this song stands for. The world needs the change that music can bring. Our generation the teenagers don't listen to lectures and rants, we pay attention to music and what our bands tell us. Truly its like a cult. Basically we need the encouragement of this song and its meanings, the impact suicide has on others is big enough of an issue to try and better the world. No one should have to kill themselves because of bullying.

Powerful song! It's the song that's got me thinking the most and it's sad If you know what it's about: the 9 kids who killed themselves in September for getting bullied because they were gay

Awesome, powerful music. Great meaning behind it. Just.. AMAZING!

Ready to Fall Ready to Fall Cover Art

Wow This should be top 5

In my mind it's #1 Ready To Fall is awesome!

I can't help but sing Along and wanna Scream during the Chorus

Now I am ready to fall...

The message and lyrics is just great. The emotion in the vocals are just awesome. All the instruments in the songs come together perfectly.

I thought this would be number 1 honestly

The Contenders

Injection Injection Cover Art

Epic. Rise against in all their glory. Injection is the reason as to why I have fallen for Rise Against to begin with. Their songs are like ecstasies, and they mean more than people allow them to mean. Unlike so many bands and artists which are faulty, Rise against has proven to ingrain themselves in their music, and I see this most in Injection. I honestly feel that this song is a work of art, and has become one of my favorite songs of all times. It went from only hearing the name to falling for this group and making it one of my top favorites in music.

You just need to listen to Tim saying "don't let me go! " in the chorus to understand that this song means glory... Then read the lyrics and be amazed, understand the lyrics and you will have this song in the top ten of all your known songs. Not to mention the bass, the guitar that throws power through its riff and the drums, which rythms mantains your heart beating with the tempo...

If an encyclopedia of punk rock existed, you would find this song as "melodic hardcore at his best". This song has perfect guitar, amazing bass and wonderful drums and Tim's voice is even more awesome. I love it.

Epicness just got a new definition. This song is what Rise Against is about. It's rough, but also pretty deep. I absolutely love this song, and all the other songs of course. This band has absolutely changed my life.

Paper Wings Paper Wings Cover Art

I have to respect the top 5. There are some amazing songs there. But this song is what made rise against a great band for me. Pure emotion and energy with amazing drums. Deserves a better place than number 16..

Please vote to increase its popularity.

Not many songs can captivate raw emotion, and the few song that do tend not to be very successful. However, this is one of the few songs that does. This song has put into words what so many people live through every day, the struggle in one's mind and heart that nobody seems to understand. Paper Wings is what you get when you pour out all of your emotions and feelings for someone when you just can't take it any longer. And that is why it should be number 1.

The song that could convince me how great rise against is! (together with swing life away)

I can't describe what this does top me. It makes me feel better when I'm sad, it wakes me up when I'm tired! Best song ever!

Survive Survive Cover Art

such a true, deep, and cutting edge song, by far one of their best

Best message of any rise against song. "We've all been sorry we've all been hurt, but how we survive is what makes us who we are. " Amazing!

The first song I've ever listened to by rise against, and many albums later it's still my favourite despite the fact my favourite album has been Appeal to Reason! Such a great song and a shame it's not higher up

Fast and amazing song, talking about how to survive in life, for me, it's one of the bests, it absolutely shouldn't be off top 5. If you have never listened to it, please, do a favor to yourself, do it.

Audience of One Audience of One Cover Art

Probably not #1 but definitely should be in the top 5.

Savior, Audience of One, Prayer of the Refugee, Paper Wings, Injection- top 5 (not in any order)

This is one of my favorite songs by rise against. Along with prayer of the refugee, savior, reeducation, satellite, survive, and injection. In no particular order. It should at least be in the top ten.

The lyrics of this song are so beautiful, artistic and meaningful. The rhythm blows my mind every time I hear it, for me it's by far their best, which is saying a lot.

Are you people crazy, just because all the radio plays is savior and make it stop doesn't mean that these aren't good. Listen to the albums definitely #1 best band ever

Endgame Endgame Cover Art

Simply awesome. It shows just how good Rise against is.

This is the song I found after I looked up Rise Against after I heard Savior. Pretty much has been my favorite song of all time now.

One of their best songs, as good as Satellite, definitely should be higher than 20th.

Much good. Such wow

Behind Closed Doors Behind Closed Doors Cover Art

This song is awesome... transmits me very emotion...
Rise Against Rocks! This song for me should be on first... this is my favourite song from my favourite band! ;p

This song reminds me to never give up but instead, 'rise against' any challenge that may come in my way. Truly amazing and inspiring. Plus, this was the first song that introduced me to Rise Against in the first place. So actually it's amazing, inspiring AND sentimental.

Best song by rise against without comparison. Top 3 songs are just the more mainstream ones and prayer of the refugee is on guitar hero that's why people know them

We stand no chance to win but, were not runnin', were not runnin'.

Although we have no obligation, to stay alive. On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive.

This song is about never giving up, no matter what.

Dancing for Rain Dancing for Rain Cover Art

It makes me sad to see this song being at such a low spot. If it would be more popular, I bet it would be in the top 3, along with Black Masks and Gasoline. It's definitely better than Savior. Whoever didn't listen to this song yet, do it now!

What?!?!?! Number 30?!? This should definitely be in the top ten. It has one of Rise Against best choruses and is the my favorite song on Siren Sound of the Counter Culture. Everyone vote for this song!

This song is one of my favorites on Siren Song of the Counter Culture. The rhythm is good and the lyrics are catchy.

Personal favorite song by them. Excellent chorus and guitar work

Like the Angel Like the Angel Cover Art

How is this song so low? This is simply disgraceful. Anyway everyone vote for this song- severely under-appreciated.

The song that started it all for me, Thank you Tony Hawk for introducing me to such a great band through your video games.

This should be number 1. Still shocked they didn't play it, or anything off revs per minute, on their tour recently. Love the new stuff, but that album is hands down the best and this is the best song on it, to overlook entirely is insulting to old fans.

Probably one of my favorites, starts off nice and slow then goes into full Rise Against mode. Plus it has a really great solo that gives you an awesome feeling when you hear it

Life Less Frightening Life Less Frightening Cover Art

This is definitely my favourite rock song of all time. Can't believe it can be so low on the list...

My other favourite songs from Rise against (not particulary in order) are: Injection, Paper Wings, The Good Left Undone, My Life Inside Your Heart, Dancing For Rain, Worth Dying For, Heaven Knows, Behind Closed Doors, Halfway There, 1000 Good Intentions, Torches etc

Anyone new to this band should listen to some of these songs.

How can this be so low?! This song rocks! Definitely their best track and everyone should listen to it before they vote. Give it all, Injection and help is on the way are good songs too.

This is my favourite song by this band by far, this is if I m not mistaken what started their assent to fame, I have no idea how this song isn't higher, just crazy. I love it.

God I love this song. I wont sit here and tell you this song should be top 10 or anything like that but as my favorite song by Rise Against I wished that it was up there higher.

Drones Drones Cover Art

Deep inside these burning buildings
Voices die to be heard
Years we spent teaching a lesson
We ourselves had never learned!

Best verse:
The drones all slave away, they're marching overtime.
They serve a faceless creed, they never question why.
Disciples of a god, that neither lives nor breathes.
But we have bills to pay, yeah we have mouths to feed.
When they played this part live, the entire arena went nuts,
It was amazing.

One of the first rise against songs I've ever heard, amazing lyrics and guitar we are doing a cover of this son in our band

This song has such a great message, and my favorite line by far is- "If strength is born from heartbreak, then mountains I could move." Such a strongly worded song and extremely underrated and should be higher up there

Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated Cover Art

The emotion in time voice is amazing, it gives the brilliantly crafted lyrics that much more meaning. I think the reason this and other songs from siren song of the counter culture aren't higher on the list is because most rise against fans haven't heard them. If they all did, these would be higher up. This, swing life away, paper wings, tip the scales, and dancing for rain are stand outs for me, the rest from the album are also great. Of coarse, I love all rise against albums, the sufferer and the witness being my favorite, I just thought siren song deserved far more then it's getting.

The Most UNDERRATED Song of rise against... How could this be at no.19... There's no chance of such a beautiful song lying so low in the list... This Song Deserves the 2nd Spot... Unbelievable Song... Especially the tune turn at the mid-time...

Beautiful Lyrics...
Top Class Music...
The Perfect Piece of Music...
Killing Chorus...
Absolutely 1st class Material...

P.S. : Listen to this song once and if you don't like rate my comment down to the depths of hell if you don't like

Tim packs a powerful lesson in the resounding lines of this song. The verses ask a impassioned question; "When I die will they remember not what I did but what I haven't done? " This briskly paced chorus reminds us how fragile our hopes and dreams really are; "When we build these dreams on sand/how they all slip through our hands. " But at the same time, Tim instills us with a sense of urgency because "this may be our only chance. " From every vantage, there is a powerful meaning behind these thoughtful lyrics; "the time we kill keeps us alive. "

This song is not only the best Rise Against song but also the most underrated. It's emotion, sound, and meaning are only closely matched by other Rise Against songs. Everyone who has not listened to this song must immediately. "When we built these dreams on sand and how they all slipped through our hands and this might be our only chance. We'll take this one day at a time, I'll hold you hand if you hold mine. The time that we kill keeps us alive"
-Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Heaven Knows Heaven Knows Cover Art

Should be higher than all these "sell out" songs. Step up your game people.

I can listen to this song multiple times and never get tired of it. It ha s an amazing rock melody and always pumps me up! The story-telling are marvelous! You could actually imagine what he sees and feels!

A fusion of epic 80s hardcore a la Black Flag and Bad Brains with modern punk straight out of Offspring, this song should definitely reach the top 5 at least.

Should be number 1! This song combines the melodic nature of modern punk with 80's hardcore to make a master piece.

I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore Cover Art

Can only be so low because it's new... AWESOME

Great song, it's new so it's going to be hard to move up list though.

The best from their new album, should be higher up

It's a pretty Good Song it's got a good Chorus!

From Heads Unworthy From Heads Unworthy Cover Art

It's the latest song I've discovered from Rise Against. First I didn't like it, but with every time listening to it, it became better and better. Now it's my favourite

I honestly thought this song would be higher on the list. This was one of the first few songs I heard by them that made me want to hear more. If you haven't listened to it I suggest you do, I like it, maybe you will too.

Should be top 10, the whole appeal to reason album speaks to me

Simply great. One of Rise Against's best.

Architects Architects Cover Art

This song is amazing! In my opinion the best song of the new album... So it really should be in the top 10! Just listen to it a few times and you will love it

I can't believe this is not up there in the top tens... Come on guys! Listen to the lyrics and you will understand!

"Make no mistake, we are not afraid
To bear the burden of repeating what they're thinking anyway
Let's raise the stakes on the bet we made
Let's decide to be the architects, the masters of our fate"

My number 4 behind Savior, Prayer of the Refugee, and Hero of War. Give it a couple listens!
