Top Ten Songs from the Undertale Soundtrack

Undertale is an indie game that almost immediately exploded in popularity, no doubt in part to its stellar soundtrack. This list is focusing on the absolute best of the bunch.
The Top Ten
1 Hopes and Dreams Hopes and Dreams Cover Art

It fills you with bravery and hope. It sounds like everithing is possible. It sounds like the bad side (rock part) and the good side (calming part) fighting each other.

A unique, and incredible song that strongly and accurately represents a battle that is impossible, but there's no way you're gonna lose.

All of the music in Asriel’s battle is incredible. I love Asriel, but I have to say that Hopes and Dreams is the best in my opinion. You feel that strong jolt of emotion and it reminds you that THIS is the TRUE final battle. It makes you want to jam out and tear up at the same time, and combined with the bittersweet and emotional storyline of the True Pacifist Route, it all fits in perfectly!

I've got 3 good reasons why this is the best for one it fits so well that you actually feel good about yourself and what you have accomplished. Another thing it is called hopes and dreams such a fitting name for a final battle. And it sounds better every time I hear it.

2 Megalovania Megalovania Cover Art

It's a good music but, unlike ,Hopes and Dreams" it gets boring when you listen to it too much. But like ,Hopes and Dreams", it fills you with hope.

Fighting Sans and hearing Megalovania 100 times got boring. I never thought this song would get boring, but whenever I hear it, I get frustrated. I've heard this song a thousand times from trying to beat him. But then I realize who Sans REALLY is. He's not just some laid back skeleton who tells puns and does nothing with his life. He's a caring brother, he can acknowledge timelines, he knows what the player is doing. Undertale NEVER forgets. No matter how many times you reset, you are putting the remembers, Sans, Flowey, and Gaster through hell. "don't tell the other sans-es ok? " "look, I gave up trying to go back a long time ago." Not back to the surface, but back to his timeline! Like that bunny person at the shop in Snowdin: "They just showed up one day and asserted themselves." Sans wants to go back to his timeline, when Gaster didn't fall into the Core and end up in the void.

"papyrus... do you want anything..? "

Even though it might get slightly annoying after your sibling makes you listen to it so much, I can really understand why this is number one on this list. Yes, you might have to kill hundreds of monsters just to hear this one song, but it’s very catchy.

It was really close coming between the two of my favorites, Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams, but the fact just comes closer to hiw much energy is being put into Megalovania. Megalovania is a song that resembles just flat out energy put into a laid back song like this one, honestly. I was close to voting Hopes and Dreams, but just what is put into Megalovania is just... bad to the BONE! (Lol I am the new generation of Sans) It is one of those songs you would put on repeat and listen to, or at least in my preference. It puts the bad time in do you wanna have a bad time, I mean really, who wouldn't like it that way? Anywho, I voted Megalovania in general just for this basic fact- Megalovania is the song that puts an ending to an amazing game (for example, Undertale.) (I wont spoil for those who have yet to play Undertale, like me. I just Googled :P). Hopes and Dreams gives you that it's the end type of feel, and Megalovania, as stated before, puts bad time in do you wanna have a bad ...more

3 Death by Glamour Death by Glamour Cover Art

Epic song. I just vibe to the beat of this. Mettaton is my third favorite character in the game.You could already tell which is my first and second favorites.

This is my absolute favorite... it is just so catchy, with a nice beat and rhythm. It also suits Mettaton perfectly. GO TOBY FOX!

While Hopes and Dreams and Megolovania are very climactic, this song is the best song in the game! (2nd best: Your Best Nightmare)

Very catchy, and has a lot of motifs that fit Mettaton completely. Toby made 10 songs into a hundred, and we love them all.

4 Undertale Undertale Cover Art

Why is this not number one? Megalovania is completely overrated and should be in second place.

This song is one of the only media that I have cried at. This game is about 5-6 hours long and this song shows that journey. This is one of the few songs that use actual instruments, making it a bonus.

It is very heart-warming, and then you realized you did a genocide before this..

Oh my god! This song is one of the most heart-warming, most beautiful songs I have heard in a video game. This is the first and probably only video game that can make me cry. Why is this not number 1? The title is in the song!

What's the best way to really punch a point across? I'll tell you. An acoustic guitar.

New Home is the final section of UNDERTALE, and it is also the shortest. There are no fights. Just story. During your journey throughout New Home, the monsters tell their side of their story, and express their happiness at finally going to be free. That's why Undertale (the song) is happy, not melancholic. It invokes empathy, which is the main point of a Pacifist run. To share and understand the emotions of others. The segment and the music flip everything completely on its head. The first REAL recording of an instrument, the fact that it's just Toriel's house again, the story. All of this combined with the music just piles up the impact more and more. Fabulous song, both uplifting and melancholic and determined.

Its such a heart warming song, just like the game itself. So of course it deserves the same title as the game. What I don't understand is why on Earth Megalovania is more popular. It might just be the fact that Sans is the most over rated character in Undertale so that would mean the his song would be over rated to. If you disagree with me I'm sorry, but please at least listen to this song. And I mean listen to it, actually focus on the song and reflect on the game. Now I'm not saying I dislike Sans or Megalovania, I just think they are to over rated to be the top.

5 Spider Dance Spider Dance Cover Art

Spider dance is another very catchy song. Not only spider dance is catchy and matches both Muffet’s personality and the fight, but it also makes the fight way better.

Spider Dance is awesome, Sans boss fight is my fave, but you can't deny the awesomeness of spider dance. I’ve never personally played UnderTale, but I watched full pacifist, genocide, a bunch of aus, and listened to all of the soundtracks at least 3 times, so I know UnderTale is awesome and so are the soundtracks.

It's the only song that makes me scream 'yes' when it comes on. Megalovania and Asgore are two other good ones but Muffet was one of my favorite characters.

This doesn't deserve to be this low in my opinion, it's one of my favourites and needs to be at least top 5 in my opinion.

Same goes for Death by Glamour

6 Battle Against a True Hero Battle Against a True Hero Cover Art

I like how they give Undyne the Undying a different theme than her original. I don't blame you if you have to kill 20 monsters just to hear this masterpiece.

People don't give BAATH the credit it deserves. Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams are always on top, with the others being %10 or lower. BAATH is a masterpiece that deserves better. It also has one of the hardest boss fights in the game, and at the same time one of the best. Hate me all you want, it's better than Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams combinded. Mainly because they would sound terrible when put together, but you get the point. So uh, yeah. I like BAATH better than almost every one of the tracks. Only his theme and bring it in, guys! have a chance of rivaling this epic theme. However, in order to hear this epic theme, you'll have to do a genocide run. Too bad we have to be a mass murderer just to hear this song.

No words can describe how much I LOVE this song! (You get it? LOVE?) But seriously, I really do love this song! This is my personal favorite song on the soundtrack! I don’t even care if I have to create an underground massacre (Or maybe even the 2nd war of humans and monsters, but this time, it’s right there in the underground) to hear this theme! I just love listening to it so much! (FYI How can a notebook cut through Undyne’s armor, just to mention it’s MADE OF PURE METAL! Just asking.)

By far the best track, and one of the more underrated themes. It holds a frantic beauty to it, full of emotion and passion. You can literally FEEL the determination in this song to come out on top. The piano does amazing work keeping the notes of pain there while the rest of the song just communicates a fierce battle to the death, this needs higher up! -ChaotiCast

7 Asgore Asgore Cover Art

I personally love this song because it just fills you up with determination as you fight Asgore, who is actually a really hard boss. (I learned that by dying 5 or 6 times while fighting him, when I usually would die 2 or 3 times while fighting other bosses.) Also, the attacks are very hard. It's not just that it actually fills you with determination, but it also is a very catchy theme. But for those folks who are playing Undertale and are stuck on the Asgore battle, I'll tell you some secrets:

First, Use the heart locket and the worn dagger. You'll find these 2 items in the copy of Toriel's house in new home in the first room to the right of the entrance. (Lots of info, I know.) These have the best defense and attack. Next, stock up on food. You'll need it a lot when you're fighting him. Once you are prepared to fight him, go out and do so. Start by talking to him until he loses 10 defense, 10 attack. This will help a lot in both fighting Asgore and counting how many times ...more

people do not appreciate enough of how much detail Toby added into this song, it should be top 5 immediatly, instead of death by glamour, the tunes are able fill someone with determination of finally reaching the barrier and fighting the 'final' boss, the music completely confused me when I first did a pacifist run and I completely thought that asgore will be the final boss.

Personally, I think that Megalovania is indeed the most famous, but nothing stops ASGORE from dominating the field in sense of the best song. The dynamics, the structure, the notes... all of it is heartbreaking and is possibly the best song in the game. Toby Fox even put in a relation to heartache, Toriel's theme... wow. Just... this is probably the most underrated song in the game, ranking 5 when it should be numero uno.

This song is underrated. Many people don't listen to the small leitmotifs that Toby puts in the song, telling the story of Asgore. Did anyone notice how Heartache was in ASGORE, but not the other way round? This shows how Toriel is still a part of Asgore's life, but Toriel has completely moved on from Asgore. This is such an amazing piece of music and should be at least in the top 5.

8 Bonetrousle Bonetrousle Cover Art

My ultimate favorite songs are Spider Dance and Megalovania, but HECK this song always puts a huge smile on my face and want to dans like a idiot. This should be highter.

The best because papyrus is the best. You can be cool but not as cool as papyrus! Or fresh sans

I love this song! One of the best on the OST in my opinion, and it has been remixed so many times...

This isn't my favorite, but I'm surprised this isn't on the list. It's such a great song.

9 Waterfall Waterfall Cover Art

It's the best music to listen when you are stressed. It relaxes you a lot. I recomend it for the ones with stressful problems like me.

Along with the song, "Undertale" there's just something different. It's mysterious. Like the games hiding something. I love it.

Truth is, I do Genocide runs over and over and over again. Because there's no climax, they just die. Except for Sans, and the first time you kill Toriel, depending. And of course Undyne.

I can't bring myself to play Pacifist. I'm scared that I might of ruined it. Sans remembers it. Flowey remembers. What if it messes up? I've received lots of hate for this.

Waterfall is basically making me want to play it. The secrets.

Honestly, I'm getting bored of trying the game to get FUN numbers, and once I've uh... Seen the gray Gaster followers. And, even Gaster... But I feel there's more to learn in the Pacifist run.

Waterfall... The secrets are held there,

Ahh this is one of the best peices of the undertale soundtrack (my opinion) through out the song there is a build up to a fantastic climax. A Very relaxing and calming song.

This song is way too underrated. It's beautiful and mysterious, and really fits the area it plays in.

10 Spear of Justice Spear of Justice Cover Art

To be honest, my favorite thing about Undertale is the absolutely perfect music, and “Spear of Justice” Is one of those pieces of perfect music. You have to admit. It’s a very catchy song and after playing Undertale, I started to wonder how Toby Fox made these amazing pieces of music. (Also, if you listen closely to “Ruins”, you can actually hear part of “Spear of Justice” but in slow motion in one part.”

My very fave UT song! MUCH better than this continuous rumble sound that an elevator makes!

I love this song so much! And it's hidden in several other songs in the soundtrack.

It perfectly captures your emotions when fighting her. Scared out of your mind.

The Contenders
11 His Theme His Theme Cover Art

My favorite song in undertale BY FAR. It's just.. I can't even explain it. It's so magical yet it fills you with sadness. Over the summer, I listened to this song in repeat for hours and hours on end.

Personally, this is my favorite. It's so hopeful, yet kind of sad at the same time. After a long fight, after saving your friends from their own fears, you finally get to save Asriel. This moment is so heartfelt, and songs in the Undertale soundtrack lead up to this by containing this leitmotif. And it leads up to the moment where (spoilers) in the True Pacifist route you go back and talk to Asriel, and he reveals things about Chara and how he wants to be remembered and it's sad.

I love this song so much, in my opinion it deserves to be first. shame its overshadowed by insanely popular songs like Megalovania. Hopefully someday it might be considered the best song in Undertale.

This song really makes you want to push through any obstacle in your way I just love songs that don't have lyrics and fill you with DETERMINATION

12 Another Medium Another Medium Cover Art

Those first six seconds when it goes from piano to synth are honestly enough on it's own, to make this my favorite, and the whole song gives such an energetic, yet chill feeling. Absolutely beautiful and super underrated.

AaaAHHH I love this song so much. Whenever I’m doing the genocide run, I push myself to get past undyne the undying because I love hearing this ost slowed down

It has great energy paired up with its wistful beauty. It says "don't give up" perfectly without actual words. Definitely one of the best songs in the game.

This is one of my favorite songs in the game this song deserves to be higher on this list

13 Core Core Cover Art

Core is so intense, but the reason I like it is that it is not a boss fight, but the song shows the intensity and how many monsters you need to fight.

So full of energy. Perfect for, well, a power plant.

It's just getting better every time I hear it.

So much energy, I listen to this WAY too much.

14 Your Best Nightmare Your Best Nightmare Cover Art

So chaotic and spooky, both adjectives that describe photoshop flowey perfectly. That's what I love about this game's soundtrack: each and every song fits perfectly.

Your best nightmare is...enh..nah...BUT FINALE. The moment you play it, its ok, but then the build up comes, with memory in the background (an homage to the flowey=asriel element) and then...the beat drop. 6 notes play, and the 6th is repeated three more times. it's very quiet and the only thing playing at that moment, and then It goes insane. ly good.

I did not like this much as a song but the ending is AMAZING! Also the song in the first place suits the fight better than any other songs and their fights because... your fighting a savage crazy photoshop. It works.

Your best Nightmare has a very eerie vibe, which goes well with the shock of Omega flowey. However, I think Finale is the most underrated song, and I personally love it. Not as good as some, but still great

15 Metal Crusher Metal Crusher Cover Art

I absolutely adore this song, really catchy and screams Mettaton "playing the role" of the evil, yet fabulous, villain!

How is this not in the top 10 or even the top 20?!?!? It is just too good to be ranked number 24!

This one is underrated. It's actually a good theme.

Another favorite of mine. Also underrated.

16 Save the World Save the World Cover Art

I'm not 100% sure why this is my favorite song, but I just love it to death.
I originally discovered this from an Undertale medley when I heard the soft piano part, and I went on a search to find it. I think it took about 2 or so days to find the original song, but I was blown away by how amazing it was.

I'd lump this in with hopes and dreams, but if I have to choose, I prefer this one. Also learning it on guitar was fun.

Got no clue why, but I LOVE Save The World. If I could listen to 1 song for the rest of my life, it would be this.

Amazing. So exciting. Better than hopes and dreams.

17 It's Raining Somewhere Else It's Raining Somewhere Else Cover Art

The emotion and at the same time the mystery behind this soundtrack really makes me root for it. One, there's Sans his secret workshop in which this soundtrack plays, and thus the entire soundtrack could even hint towards something really deep within the game! To me one of the most meaningful, deep, mysterious and chilling songs in the game.

Oh god, this one just fills me with emotions. It’s sadness, hopeless, yet beautiful in that way. It embraces that aspect. The rain only goes to accentuate that.

Ah, pain.

For real though. When you really learn who this punny guy is behind the jacket, this song becomes way worse (by that I mean emotional) to listen to. He tries to stay calm but he just... I have to stop ;-;

Listen. This is one of the best songs in the game (except the intro). Believe me - it brings put all the raw pain and suffering sans has endured and it is the perfect track to reveal sans' relationship with toriel.

18 Ruins Ruins Cover Art

What can I say? This is one of the first pieces you’ll hear in the game, and it sure gives a good impression. It’s so catchy, and just... superb.

A nice and calming song. I've listened this song a lot, because I like it so much.

It is as good as megalovania and should have the respect as well! You people who don't love it should!

So mysterious. I like it.

19 Heartache Heartache Cover Art

This is my personal favorite song in the entire game. There are no words to describe just how perfectly this song was executed in Toriel's fight scene. Beautiful song, 100 out of 10 ^w^

Because toriel was the first boss doesn't mean you should forget about this song, it's theme is happy yet it gives of a kind of sadness knowing you will leave toriel soon

Honestly, I love this song not because its very cool but because of the emotion that is in the battle and I makes me feel so sad, and it should be a lot higher than this.

OK TOBY FOX HAS MADE NOTHING BUT CATCHY MUSIC ON THIS GAME HOW DOES HE DO IT!? Oh right! My review on this song! Not much to say tough... It’s a very catchy song and it suits the theme of this fight perfectly!

20 Dummy! Dummy! Cover Art

I have NO idea why, but this song is one of my favs. It feels right, and the fact that it's against a wait-out boss means that I can listen to it and hear the whole thing by the time I finish the fight.

Best song in the game by far. Wacky, spunky, fits the character perfectly. Even repeats some notes 3 times, like Mad Dummy repeats words. I could listen to it all day.

It's slightly faster than ghost fight and a tiny bit slower than spider dance still making it good

Better than Ghost Fight and Spider Dance. It gets me dancing every time.

21 Finale Finale Cover Art

This is pretty much the best “OH HELL YEAH” moment in the whole game. This fight is really chaotic, especially right after the pretty between-the-lines asgore fight. Your Best Nightmare makes it feel even more crazy, and also, this fight feels like it goes on FOREVER. It’s a good 10 minutes along with the asgore fight.

So after a long, chaotic battle which feels like it’s going to go on forever, this happens. Suddenly, you have a chance. It makes the Determination everyone’s been talking about feel like it’s really there, like some invisible force.

It goes without saying that this is my favorite song in the whole soundtrack. Except maybe ASGORE.

I believe this is the single most underrated song on this OST. #24, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Maybe it's not as emotional as Hopes and Dreams, or as evil as Megalovania, but it sure is more epic than those combined. Must be higher! My favourite easily.

The first time I played Undertale, fighting Omega Flowey was one of the hardest boss battles I ever did. But as I neared the end, about to give up, I heard this theme, and it was like someone telling me to not give up! Thanks to this theme (And my sister encouraging me), I stayed determined and continued on to spare Flowey in the end, making my way to fight the absolute god of hyper death. (If you don’t know the reference “God of hyper death”, It’s asriel Dreemurr.)

THIS IS AWESOME! That moment when you’re fighting omega Flowey, he’s always been wanting to kill you and insulting you, and now you get the chance to get revenge! This is the perfect song for any revenge song.-Luke_dapip

22 Bergentrückung Bergentrückung Cover Art

Asgore the king of monsters stands before you

My personal favourite, not sure why

An epic entrance to an epic fight.

The opening to my favorite song.

23 Temmie Village Temmie Village Cover Art

A lot of people think this song is stupid and bad but if you think about it the song is supposed to represent the personality of the tummies.

Oh come on. Though it can be considered stupid and annoying by some people, it's a big favorite for me!

All you need to know is that whenever I encounter a Temmie I always scream TeMmIe!

This song is so funny. When I hear it. It's like a rainbow came.

24 Sans. Sans. Cover Art

In my opinion, Sans. should be higher on this list. It perfectly fits the character of someone HUMERUS like Sans.

A funny and lazy song. Just like sans. I like that the song is also used when you enter grillby's.

Great! Why is it so far down?!?!?!

Sans the comedian.

25 Battle of a True Hero

Dude it's "Battle AGAINST a true hero," and this song is already on this list.
