Best RWBY Songs

I just finished Volume 4 and decided to make this list. Can't get enough of the soundtrack from the RWBY series.

The Top Ten

1 Armed and Ready Armed and Ready

This is from the credits of Volume 4 and this is a Yang song. It's a bold fierce song about getting over the pain that's happened and be ready to move forward. - RoseRedFlower

Honestly for awhile I said Red Like Roses Part II was the best. But when the Volume 4 credits rolled, this song absolutely blew me away! So far Yand and Weiss have both gotten new, updated character themes and both are incredible and in my opinion superior to the originals. This one just has so much more depth to it than I Burn and I love it!

After a gritty volume, an upbeat song like this was nice to hear in the credits. - Rue

2 Red Like Roses Part 2 Red Like Roses Part 2

The main character and her relationship with her mother song. It's a heartbreaking song yet it's played like a powerful vow. That Ruby won't forget what has happened to her and no matter what happen, nothing will take the place of her dear mother. - RoseRedFlower like roses part two is THE best song of all time stupid! "Red like roses fills my head up with dreams and finds me"... I mean for crying out loud it's my theme song! šŸ˜¤šŸ˜”šŸ˜¤šŸ˜”

3 Time to Say Goodbye Time to Say Goodbye

The opening song to Volume 2. It has great buildup before everything crashes down and plays out. It's a beautiful song that I would recommend anyone listen to. - RoseRedFlower

4 This Will Be the Day

It is great. Three songs I will listen to while cycling and working out are This Will Be The Day, Caffeine, I'm The One.

This song is pure rock. Why isn't it closer?

Best song to work out too.

5 It's My Turn It's My Turn

This song is supposed to be a Weiss song about her relationship with her father. And if you listen to it, it's not a very happy one. It's also have layers of independence and striving for freedom. Casey's singing for this song was excellent. - RoseRedFlower

6 I Burn

I liked it when this song was used in Yang Xiao Long's Death Battle with Tifa Lockhart. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

7 From Shadows From Shadows

A song about one of the character's named Blake. About her revolution against the oppression and subjugation against her kind. This song has some face melting guitar music and an amazing soft chord at the end and beginning. - RoseRedFlower

I love Blake Belladonna. She's strong in her own, unique way. Yes she gets undermined and her past was tragic, but she is never afraid to speak of her mind. You go girl!

8 Cold Cold

Monty Oum's song. Monty Oum was the creator of RWBY and helped bring RWBY to life. Not many artists get to bring their dream to life and yet Monty worked hard to achieve it. Sadly, he passed away before the third volume and this song was made in his honor. Even in Volume 3, they make homages to him because they loved him. This song is a Monty Oum song because of how much we miss him but how we must keep moving on despite that. - RoseRedFlower

9 All Our Days All Our Days

A sister song! Unlike Gold, this is more of the older sibling to the younger sibling. How she will always be there to protect and love Ruby no matter who comes and goes in her life. This is a very sentimental song about their relationship. - RoseRedFlower

10 Mirror Mirror Mirror Mirror

A very mellow song at the beginning but then shifts into a stronger one. The piano and the melodic singing is what brings this song together. Despite the sad message behind it. - RoseRedFlower

The Newcomers

? This Time

The Contenders

11 This Life is Mine

In my opinion, this is not only the best song, but is also the best Weiss song. It starts out as her asking this mirror that she has confided in (Mirror Mirror, Mirror Mirror Pt. 2), asking if it is listening or if it's even there. Towards the middle of the song, though, the tone shifts to her father, and how he held her back. Then finally, at the end, she states "mirror mirror now we're done," suggesting that her father wasn't the only one that was holding her back, and that it was her own self-image/troubles/ worries, too. This song basically shows how far Weiss has matured throughout the volumes. Also, Casey and Jeff RULE on this song!

How is this song not higher? It's a really beautiful blend of classical and hard rock. Really gives me that Trans-Siberian Orchestra vibe. Plus, it really shows Weiss' character development throughout the series. This song is pretty much the reason why she's my favorite character. - OnyxDash

I just adore this one, not much to say that hasn't already been.

12 Divide Divide

Villains have the best songs. This is for the main villain in RWBY. This makes Disney villain songs quiver with fear. How children will bleed, faith won't bring victory and how to destroy humanity. Plus the song kind of did come true at the end of the third volume. Do you have the nerve to listen to it? - RoseRedFlower

13 I May Fall I May Fall

Best song in the series for me!

14 Bad Luck Charm Bad Luck Charm

What a badass song.

15 Die

My favorite

16 Caffeine

Team CFVY's song which I absolutely love. It really gets the blood pumping. I listened to it on repeat for a week after the first time I heard it. But I think Roosterteeth did an awesome job on all the RWBY songs. One of the best things about the show (besides the amazing weapons) is their unique soundtrack. - NerdBunny

17 When It Falls When It Falls

This song perfectly describes everything that happened in Volume 3. The song is catchy and yet very somber. How everything was torn apart. There's a dark message behind it. If you listen to this song, before watching the third volume, then be prepared to see everything fall. - RoseRedFlower

18 Boop
19 Like Morning Follows Night Like Morning Follows Night

This is why I ship Black Sun!
Also, it explains their relationship better than the show does lol

20 Iā€™m the One

I'm sorry. But this is the absolute sickest song they have produced, for two of the most badass characters in a badass fight

Get this higher

21 Shine Shine

Jaune dancing in a dress.

Just let that sink in for a couple minutes.

That's why this song is awesome. - OnyxDash

22 Mirror Mirror Pt. 2 Mirror Mirror Pt. 2

I love this song because it tells us about how hard Weiss's past was, even though she had everthing. There is much more to her character than the snobby rich girl and I can't wait to see her character grow.

23 Let's Just Live
24 Red Like Roses Part 1 Red Like Roses Part 1

That opening gives me chills every time. This, along with Red Like Roses Part II are definitely the best songs of Volume 1. And probably the best from the entire series. - OnyxDash

25 R.W.B.Y. vs F.N.K.I.

This song uses the trumpet really well.

26 Triumph
27 Not Fall in Love with You

This song was weird at first but I found myself getting into it after awhile.
