Songs That Are Much More Famous Than Any Other Song by That Band

Some bands have 1 song that are much more famous than any of their other songs, or have a song that pushed them into fame for the first time. This list is for songs that fit into either of those categories. (Isn't necessarily their best song, just their most famous or the song that pushed them into fame). Songs at the top of this list are more famous than any other song by that band.

The Top Ten

1 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

EASILY their most well known song. That's not opinion, that's fact. - EvilAngel

2 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

My Immortal is very famous too, but Bring Me To Life is definitely their most famous song, even though I don't think it's necessarily their best. For people who aren't big Evanescence fans, those people may have only heard a few songs by Evanescence, but this is bound to be the one that most people heard first. This song is both their most famous and also the song that pushed them into fame. - EvilAngel

3 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

Tears Don't Fall is the big fans favourite for this amazing band. Always will be their best and most famous - EvilAngel

4 Bodies - Drowning Pool
5 Teenage Dirtbag - Wheatus
6 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

This song was easily the most well known song for Nirvana, Come As You Are would probably be the second most famous I'd say. - EvilAngel

7 Knives and Pens - Black Veil Brides

Definitely their most well known - EvilAngel

8 Sweet Child O Mine - Guns N Roses

Guns N' Roses obviously had more than one massive song, but despite the fact that some others were massive, this song is on this list because it is massively famous, and is the song that a lot of people will think of when they hear Guns N Roses - EvilAngel

9 Last Resort - Papa Roach
10 Freak On a Leash - Korn

This song became huge, and despite Korn having loads of songs, this is definitely their most well known overall - EvilAngel

The Contenders

11 Rollin - Limp Bizkit

Overrated I think, but easily their most well known song, with My Way probably coming second. - EvilAngel

12 In the End - Linkin Park

This is tricky because for a while In The End was definitely their most well known song, but songs like Numb, What I've Done and New Divide have also become massive and just as popular, and also Crawling has became massive too, Linkin Park have loads of hits but In The End is still the overall most famous, it is the song that pushed them into a lot of fame, and is the big fan favourite for a lot of fans. Their best song. - EvilAngel

13 Hotel California - The Eagles
14 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Like Linkin Park (only even more so ) Queen have had several hits, but this was overall their biggest - EvilAngel

15 Another Brick In the Wall Pt 2 - Pink Floyd

I beg to differ. It was a popular song, but Echoes, Comfortably Numb and Shine On You Crazy Diamond were also very popular, and better. Echoes, by the way, is my favourite rock song. 23 minutes of brilliance. - PositronWildhawk

16 Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice
17 Ready to Start - Arcade Fire
18 The Safety Dance - Men Without Hats
19 Rock You Like a Hurricane - The Scorpions
20 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed
