Best Songs of 2019

The Top Ten

1 Unsainted - Slipknot Unsainted - Slipknot Cover Art

Love this song. I like to see a metal song at the top of this list. Better than a stereotypical pop song.

This song is simply just awesome. Corey may say that this is their most softest track on their new album, but still this song is absolutely awesome and proves that slipknot can still make good music. Also Corey Taylor was beyond awesome in this song. Easily my favourite song of 2019 at the moment.

People say this song is trash no it's not SlipKnot kicks asses

It's been months since its release, and still my favourite song of 2019

2 Earfquake - Tyler, the Creator Earfquake - Tyler, the Creator Cover Art

It's okay I guess but not something I'd go out of my way to listen to, this isn't what I want from Tyler.

A Boy Is A Gun and Gone Gone/Thank You are better in my opinion but I'll take this over anything else on this list

DON'T LEEAAVE. Perfection, only thing bringing this down is Playboi Carti's incoherent mumbling, which really was unnecessary but this song is groovy and amazing. 5/5

Glad to see this song is now in the top 10's and is finally higher than that trash that is ME!

3 Fear Inoculum - Tool Fear Inoculum - Tool Cover Art

Really needs a place on the list. This might have a lot of elements Tool has used before, but that's not exactly a bad thing. This song proves that perhaps those 13 years were worth the wait. We can only hope we get more greatness when the full album releases later.

Somehow Tool managed to excel our expectations that were built for 13 years. 11/10

Okay get this to number 1. While Tyler The Creator's songs from Igor are very close, the songs from Tool's most recent album destroy it.

It's a great Progressive Metal song. I especially like the drums that sound like Indian folk music(But I am from India so of course)

4 Blinding Lights - The Weeknd Blinding Lights - The Weeknd Cover Art

Easily the best song of 2019 music made with passion that everyone can feel and enjoy this what music should be about and should make you feel.

Who doesn't love a modern pop song with some 80's synth? One of The Weeknd's best songs, and it also reached #1 in 32 countries which is well deserved!

This is a pretty unexpected turn from the mediocre releases The Weeknd has put out after "Pray For Me", but also an amazing one. Like my god, the production is just stellar, and The Weeknd sounds really good. Definitely a lot better than "Heartless". 10/10.

This song is amazing! The groove is so good here and his style on this song is great here. 6/5

5 Solway Firth - Slipknot Solway Firth - Slipknot Cover Art

"Solway Firth" is proof that Slipknot have finally found their beat that they have been trying to find since the passing of Paul Gray back at the start of the decade. After the uncertainty if they even wanted to continue as a band when ".5: The Gray Chapter" came out, the band took some time off after a couple years of touring to recuperate and come back with a stronger mindset. Despite a slight roadblock with the departure of longtime percussionist Chris Fehn over legal issues, the band was able to continue putting their sound forward, and ultimately ended up releasing a whole plethora of some of their best work in over 15 years. "Solway Firth", the final track on "We Are Not Your Kind" (with the exception of the Japanese release, which includes the single "All Out Life" as a bonus track), is one of the album's more experimental tracks, bordering even on "Melodic death metal" territory. An incredibly somber opening leads to an all out assault of heavy guitars, double kick patterned ...more

This is my very least favorite song on WANYK, but I'll vote for it just for the sake of pushing up Slipknot. I'll take any of Orphan, Nero Forte, Birth of the Cruel, Solway Firth (both of which I voted for as well), and pretty much anything else on the album aside from No Pain over this song.

It's almost like pop metal. I really hope they don't go in this direction next album, but I'd rather have any Slipknot song at the top of the list than this other nonsense.

But being real, Supernal Flame by Arkaik was the best song released this year. But I know there's no way a tech death song will make this list, so Slipknot is an acceptable compromise. Pop metal is better than no metal, though I'd take 7empest by Tool over this as well

It depresses me that we gone from Led Zeppelin's whole lotta love to this crap. I mean, I know slipknot are a rock band but they focus to much on their appearance than their actual music.

This one is just damn amazing. The beginning gives me chill, starting slow and talking about killers, but then just jumps right onto the pretty heavy sound. The vocals give me chills too, especially the last lines, for a reason I don't have to explain. This track is just sick.

6 The Greatest - Lana Del Rey The Greatest - Lana Del Rey Cover Art

Beautiful song from a beautiful album. One of the best albums released in recent years.

Such a beautiful song.

7 Cellophane - FKA Twigs Cellophane - FKA Twigs Cover Art

pretty neatt

8 The Raven Child - Avantasia The Raven Child - Avantasia Cover Art

Should be higher, such a great song and great album

Possibly their best song to date, I'm serious

This was very good.

I heard it after wondering why it was so high. This was very well done. 7.5/10

9 Cold - Korn Cold - Korn Cover Art

Best song on The Nothing. Especially the chorus is really good.

The amazing intensity of that song perfectly fitting to the style of Korn

It's the best song from the nothing

Very nice

10 7empest - Tool 7empest - Tool Cover Art

How the hell is this song so low, it's the best from Tool's new album and belongs at number 1.

Better than the title track.

Get this to number 7

This song will live for decades not just 2019

The Newcomers

? Shine a Little Light - The Black Keys Shine a Little Light - The Black Keys Cover Art
? I'm Not Sorry - Hardwell and Mike Williams I'm Not Sorry - Hardwell and Mike Williams Cover Art

The Contenders

11 Bags - Clairo Bags - Clairo Cover Art
12 You'll Never Find Me - Korn You'll Never Find Me - Korn Cover Art

Pretty good song. I never really liked Korn, but their new album is starting to change my mind a little.

Of course this song is awesome this should be no. 1 over slipknot hellyeah

Honestly MUCH better than that Slipknot crap at the top of the list

Oh yes, great song! It's so damn angsty and edgy though

13 A BOY IS A GUN - Tyler, The Creator A BOY IS A GUN - Tyler, The Creator Cover Art

Best song on IGOR, hands down.

Cool song from Tyler's new album.


14 Two of Us - Louis Tomlinson Two of Us - Louis Tomlinson Cover Art

I promise that I did not put this on the list, but I love this song! Louis adds EDM and guitar together which works out well. Plus his vocals are spot on as he sings about his deceased mother that, he wished he was the one taken and that he will be living "One life for the two of us."Definitely a top 10, you should listen to this. Beautiful People and Sanctuary are also must listens.

The song is so raw and full of emotion. The former 1D singer bravely sings about the passing of his mother with heartbreaking lyrics such as "the day that they took you, I wished it was me instead". The song is sad, but a message of hope, and it is a strong reflection of Louis' growth as both an artist and a song writer. Absolutely would recommend it to anyone!

Dayum, why do I only recognise 2 songs in the top 20!? Anyways this song is good

This was a very sweet song. Louis' best song yet, listen to it right now!

15 Gone - Charli XCX & Christine and the Queens Gone - Charli XCX & Christine and the Queens Cover Art

The day Charli XCX turned me bisexual.

16 Sanctuary - Joji Sanctuary - Joji Cover Art

One of my new favorites from Joji. I love the lyrics. Joji's performance is great. The production feels nostalgic and vintage, but in a modern way (if that makes any sense). And it's all wrapped together in a super clean mix. Such a good song.

Found this song when I was first exploring Joji and since then it has yet to leave my playlist

I just recently got into Joji, and this song is everything I need in a song like this year. I also reccomend to check out his other work.

Slow Dancing by Joji was alright but not memorable. This, on the other hand, was very good. The vocals, the production and not to mention the fantastic music video makes this better. I rank a 7.5 out of 10.

17 Bad Guy - Billie Eilish Bad Guy - Billie Eilish Cover Art

Billie definitely deserves to be at he top 5. She's achieved so much as a 17 year old artist. Really proud of what she's able to accomplish.

Another good pop song from an amazing alternative pop album. Not my favorite song on the album but I don't hate it and it's better than most of the songs on this list.

Catchy beat, and fun to listen to. This is one of the best songs of 2019

A wonderful intro song to one of 2019's best albums that for some reason sounds like We Are Number One.

18 Hexed - Children of Bodom Hexed - Children of Bodom Cover Art

This was a flaming pile of s***. What are they saying? What is that noise? Did it define 2019? Ask anyone who this band is and here their response.

This sounds just like most stereotypical metal song. Yelling like a nut, check. Instrumentals clashing but not getting anywhere, check. Questionable lyrics, check. Overall 3/10. (Metal fans shall now hate me)

There are not stereotypical metal songs , because metal has a lot of sub- genres and every one is diverse and original.
This is only what metal haters say without even listening the songs they are talking about - Deathshield18

If I'm being completely honest, as someone who's listened to a lot of metal over the years, this is a good metal song. That said, I'm not sure if I enjoy the vocals on this song as much as I enjoy the melody. And this has nothing to do with the vocals being death metal. For me, personally, the vocals don't stand out nearly as much as the melody compared to other songs with death metal vocals. That said, it's not a situation like a certain other song on this list where I'm not going to remember this song 24 hours from now. It's just that the melody is so good that the vocals don't really stand up to it and just sort of end up lost in the song in my opinion. I don't hate the song, I just feel that, for me, Children of Bodom's vocals don't stand out compared to bands like Killswitch Engage or In Flames. And this is coming from someone who prefers European metal, if my love for bands like Within Temptation and Powerwolf is any indication.

@Metal_Treasure I respect your opinion as well, but I definitely disagree with you about Within Temptation being "barely metal". While some of their songs like "The Reckoning" "Whole World Is Watching" can be considered that, other songs of theirs like "Ice Queen", "What Have You Done", "Dangerous", and "Raise Your Banner" are very metal. But again, everyone's different. For me, symphonic metal is my personal favorite genre not just when it comes to metal, but music in general. - tonyb500

Not the biggest fan of growling vocals, but they impressed me in this song. The instruments sound really good as well.

19 Fall Into the Light - Dream Theater

Incredible riffs and singing, impressive and powerful song.

Listen to it and you'll see why it deserves #1. Or at least #2. I prefer Pale Blue Dot, over this, but it wasn't on the list. Its still great though!

The riff is all the evidence needed, and it is a ton better than the popular talentless crap that is on the charts right now. Dream theater are one of the most talented bands in the world and, as this song proves, their songwriting is only getting better because they aren’t focused as much on showing off.

This song sounds like Metallica

20 Ricky - Denzel Curry Ricky - Denzel Curry Cover Art

This is honestly just okay, it's a good song to get you hype but there are honestly many better songs out there lyrically and flow-wise.

Well both of those projects were kind of underwhelming (in my opinion) - DaWyteNight

THis is amazing. His flow is so evil here haha. 6/5

Favourite song off the album

It's a good motivating song.

21 Leave Me Lonely - Hilltop Hoods Leave Me Lonely - Hilltop Hoods Cover Art

That weird moment when Kat searches up your song, hates it, and pushes it down to #17 and you put it at #1 on your remix

The fact the Hilltop Hoods are number 5 on this list kind of blows my mind even with the song being unfiltered amounts of awesome.

My friend introduced me to the band, and while its not the best song of 2019 its Hilltop Hoods’ best song. And they deserve more recognition

It sucks just like the picture that's on my screen

22 Everything I Wanted - Billie Eilish Everything I Wanted - Billie Eilish Cover Art

It is a really good song that describes the relationship Billie has with her brother Finneas. Their relationship is everything all siblings should strive for. It is also a really calming song and the lyrics really speak to me. Plus, Billie is super young and she deserves the recognition.

Same with this one Billie is one of my favorite singers next to Melanie Martinez.

I’ll be honest the song didn’t interest me when I first heard it, but now I love it and the music video really compliments the song.

A great new song!

23 Dream Dream Dream - Madeon Dream Dream Dream - Madeon Cover Art

One of my new favorite songs by Madeon. It’s so good, the wait was well worth it! Please give Madeon the love that he deserves for this masterpiece!

Oh Yes!



24 Ira Dei - Mago de Oz Ira Dei - Mago de Oz Cover Art

This song is the title track from the newest album of Spanish folk metal band Mägo de Oz. This song is not popular but it has EVERYTHING, amazing vocals, amazing guitar work, awesome drumming, amazing addition of other instruments like violin, and SYNTHS! I seriously recommend everyone to check it out. It is definitely my favorite song so far this year.

25 Cross Off - Mark Morton Cross Off - Mark Morton Cover Art

It should be way higher. The combination between Chester 's vocals and Mark Morton 's guitar it's amazing. This is a song that proves that Chester is capable of doing even the hardest metal genres, like heavy metal. If that legend had still been alive, I 'm sure he would have experimented a lot more heavy metal sounds

Chester 's vocals are amazing in this song and are similar to the ones in linkin park 's first albums but heavier. This is definitely one of the best songs of this year and ( and this is one of the reasons for voting this song ) cannot be under Billie eilish!

Personally, my favorite song of the year so far.

Chester is the greatest metal vocalist of all time
