Top Ten Best Twenty One Pilots SongsChristianDavid I only made this list because I hadn't seen it yet on this site. Hopefully people will come to it eventually.
The Top Ten
This song is so good it sends chills down my spine whenever I listen to it. Not to mention the abrupt beats and instrumentals at 2:57 and 3:56. It's the kind of song that makes you want to drop everything and just concentrate only on it until it gets over.
Car Radio perfectly blends piano, vocals, drums, and electronic music into a great ballad about losing a car radio, which makes the song even better. - ChristianDavid
This song is a true story, and tells you about what we do. We hide behind music and deny the true reality that we are in. You should probably take your earphones out for a second and look up and just think.
The fact that it is depressing to think isn't really the problem, but that people are so afraid of being depressed, and that fear actually fuels itself and the feeling of depression. To me this song urgently tells me that although it is scary, it is what being alive is and we should not run away from it knowing that eventually peace will overcome the fear in the end. - Zepman
I agree with ChristianDavid.The song really does have a really great blend of piano,drums,singing and some electronic music.I would also like to add that they manage to put lots of emotion into a song that is just about someone stealing their car radio.-LitSavageV 124 Comments
This is the first song I heard by them, and now I can sing the whole song. "tie a noose around your mind loose enough to breath fine" is one of the best lyrics. And the transition from "entertain my faith" to "lean with it rock with it" is bomb.
Honestly this song is just so beautiful and has a wonderful meaning. I often find myself getting lost in it! "You are surrounding, all my surroundings, sounding down the mountain range of my left side brain"
I love every single song twenty one pilots has released (and I'll probably love the ones that are unreleased too) but this song managed to draw tears from me almost every time I listen to it. It's like some sort of therapy for me - all my insecurities and anger seem to seep out when I listen to it, and not a lot of songs are like this.
It's one of the best song TØP has ever made.V 100 Comments
Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat
Shadows will scream that I'm alone
I-I-I I've got a migraine
And my pain will range from up, down, and sideways
Thank God it's Friday cause Fridays will always be better than Sundays
'Cause Sundays are my suicide days
I don't know why they always seem so dismal
Thunderstorms, clouds, snow and a slight drizzle
Whether it's the weather or the ledges by my bed
Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head
Let it be said what the headache represents
It's me defending in suspense
It's me suspended in a defenseless test
Being tested by a ruthless examiner
That's represented best by my depressing thoughts
I do not have writer's block my writer just hates the clock
It will not let me sleep I guess I'll sleep when I'm dead
And sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my ...more - alpacacupid
The beat is amazing, the lyrics go deeper the more you listen to them, and his voice is honest and raw; this is what TOP sounds like and this is why their music saves people too. Open, honest, and comparable to what we go through!
So many meaningful quotes to this song. "Sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind","Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head" "I am not as fine as I seem", "behind my eyelids are islands of violence", "I know we made it this far, kid" For someone going through depression, these are what get me through a lot.
It is the best song ever.V 68 Comments
I'm a pretty big fan of twenty one pilots, and their music is so amazingly strange that you can't really pick any song out as bad. In fact, almost all of their songs are absolutely fantastic. But I don't think any song represents the band as well as this song. The deep lyrics of Migraine and Car Radio, the intense rapping of Holding on to You, and the synth pop of Tear in My Heart make this an interesting, tempo changing journey of a song. But there is also something at the core of this song that just resonates with me. It's a sense of hope and an urge to fight back that you don't hear in too many of their songs. Pair this with one of the most awesome beats and bass in any of their songs and you get the best TOP song yet.
Not a diehard TOP fan, but I am a big one, and their lyrics never cease to amaze me. The thought that goes into their songs is incredible, and are constantly examined to define their meaning. Though Stressed Out and Ride may be the ones everyone knows, but those who listen a little deeper know that those are by no means their best songs. Personally, I think The Pantaloon, Trapdoor, this song, Run and Go, Migraine, Polarize, and Message Man are their true and best songs. Keep it up Twenty One Pilots... I think you're starting your own genre here. - cartaris101
Ode to Sleep is a perfect representation of, well, pretty much everything twenty one pilots is. The way they use their lyrics to describe these intense emotions and go into such excruciating detail so that the song seems to spread through you and moves from your ears down to your heart. The way they so fluently mix tempos and even genres of music is astonishing. Just the pure skill Tyler has with his voice and Josh on the drums and how everything blends harmoniously (despite seemingly rough transitions) is just phenomenal. Hearing this song really gets you going and always makes me think "Wow, I wish all music made me feel like this." Ode to Sleep is overall, an incredible song, and it could be argued whether it's number 1 out of TØP's great number of songs, but I truly believe this song deserves appreciation for just how truly amazing it is.
Best... song... EVER!V 88 Comments
This is such a good song, I can't even begin to understand why it is so low! I listen to this ALL the time and in my top two favorites (holding on to you & heavydirtysoul). I LOVE this song, especially "gangsters don't cry" and "death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit" lol.
I'm listening to this song right now. It's so catchy, sticks in your head, and makes me want to dance and sing along. It has a relatable message and the amount of different melodies and layers in this are so interesting. Tyler's voice changes pitch so much, but still sounds great, and Josh's playing is so intense. Great song. This should be in the top ten.
Why is this so low, this is one of my favorites! personally I think this song (or maybe migraine) has the best rapping. Its lyrics have deeper meaning, this really should at least be in the top 15
This an amazing song. It should be 2, after Car RadioV 56 Comments
As a 16 year old guy and many responsibilities of being the oldest child and having to grow up the quickest and then seeing life speed on by these 16 years have gone too fast and this song makes me sad because like he says he wishes he could turn back time to the good dope days when his momma used to sing him to sleep when he was stressed out. I feel the same way wanting to be a kid again no worries having fun with friend playing childish games that you had the most fun in the world and now I have to wake up and grow up and start making money. This song is genuine and very heartfelt for me.
There is no description in the English language that can adequately describe this song, it's just such a work of art that I don't think I can do it justice. If you haven't listened to it yet, stop reading this and go listen to it! If you have listened to it, then you too should stop reading this and go listen to it!
I can relate to so many Twenty One Pilots songs, but this one is probably the most relatable for me. Plus is it just a pure work of art in general.
I just love itV 165 Comments
This song is very beautiful. While so are most of the other songs on this list, it deserves to be higher up. I mean, #10?! Really? And of course Heathens, Stressed Out and Ride are higher up for some reason! So enraged...but enough complaining. The song is so meaningful and is all about purpose. The message is purpose. Meaning, things can't just be, they have to have purpose. Why is that? What does it mean? Are the questions that described this song. While I haven't had full on depression like some Twenty One Pilots listeners have, I could sure relate to feeling so useless. And how this song helps so much with that. Going back to the whole purpose thing, the song is trying to say that if something is meaningful to you, and only you, you have a purpose to live! Who else could think of that AND write such a beautiful song about it? None other than Tyler Joseph everyone!
I have never in my life ever heard a song more fitting of the word "beautiful." Not only are the lyrics an absolute masterpiece, but the music is fantastic at the same time. Seriously about the lyrics though, those alone should rocket this song to the top spot. Less people have heard it because it is from their earlier album Regional at Best, but this is deserving of number one. Holding Onto You will probably always be my favorite Twenty One Pilots song for more personal reasons, but Kitchen Sink is definitely their best.
Kitchen sink is just so meaningful and an amazing, beautiful work of art. Tyler has so much talent at music and writing and it really shows in this song. The song is all about finding a purpose in life, and how we all sometimes feel meaningless. This song discusses a really deep topic, and Tyler's amazing talent just polishes it off. This song should definitely be number one.
Okay. Heathens is good but this song is amazing?V 128 Comments
It is a happy sounding song, and at the same time has very deep and meaningful lyrics to go along with it. Generally, it is a big favourite of the Skeleton Clique.
The lyrics are insanely deep yet the song is so brilliant and upbeat. A work of art
This song sends chills down my spine... In a good way! I listen to it when I am feeling down! This song along with heathens, are my go-to songs
It talks about suicidal thoughts but it aounds happy and positive, and it gives me energyV 36 Comments
Just simply great, the change of heavy and soft vocals is amazing
Roll down your car windows and blare it.
To be honest this song is a very good because I'm think that your talking about taking your time on what ever you got going and if its not then what ever your song is keep it up and don't let anybody make you take this song down.
Ist a great song ohohohoV 87 Comments
The beat is awesome, it sounds like a modern day song, the message is easy to follow, and it will be great for Suicide Squad. Is this gonna be in a new album?
It sounds like a modern day song because IT IS a modern day song - mmarce445
Beautiful and sinister, with a well developed background melody and intriguing lyrics. I've never played/seen Suicide Squad, and this is still my all time favourite 21 pilots song.
This song is so perfect that it describes the movie so well...can't wait to watch this movie, especially the song plays out in the movie
All my friends are eating steak and snow. I watched a video of misheard lyrics, and now I'm actually gonna comment that every time I see this song. - lovefrombadlandsV 123 Comments
My friends had been talking about Twenty One Pilots for months and months on end. Finally, I decided to check their music out, so I wouldn't feel left out. The first song I got on iTunes was Stressed Out (basic, but it was catchy) and the second was Tear In My Heart. It seemed so familiar, yet so new and innovative. The techno was mixed in with the rock and it was an absolutely perfect blend.
Any popular song that calls out the government on anything gains my attention. At first, I found it annoying, but then I actually truly listened to the lyrics. I felt so many emotions and sounds behind the scenes of the song, I simply cannot describe. And I understand now why the Skeleton Clique is so passionate about the talent that is TWENTY ONE PILOTS.
I love this song so much. It's a bit lighter than some of the other songs TOP have (Although they are all amazing) and probably something that would appeal to the wider public. I love the piano/drum/techno combo and I could literally listen to this song for the rest of my life. The music video is amazing and so is this song.
The only TOP song I like honestly - 445956V 47 Comments
This was my twenty one pilots song I ever heard. I'm so glad I listened to it.
First time I listened to it, I thought it was catchy and fun. Second time around, I thought that the mother died. When I watched the music video... I absolutely lost it. It's such a well written song, and I will often be crying by the end of it. It's by far my favorite and I'm actually listening to it right now! This song deserves to be higher on this list!
Awesome song. This was one of the first twenty one pilots songs I had ever heard, and it was really what got me hooked on the band. It really should be higher up on the list.
Only modern pop song that's worth a damn.V 59 Comments
Fairly Local gripped me tight and raised me from perdition. I'm sorry, but that's the best way I could describe my overwhelming emotions for this song.
I can't even explain why I love this so much. I especially liked the parts "Yo, you bulletproof in black like a funeral" it speaks to me haha
My favorite TOP song. It is AWESOME! It was one of the first songs I had heard. That's what got me to love the band so much.
I don't know... just greatV 30 Comments
Most of the songs on Twenty One Pilots by Twenty One Pilots are far superior to their other albums. By no means are their other albums bad. Many of their songs have made me cry and made me think. But this album in particular is very thought provoking and just special. You can here the emotion in Tyler's voice and that emotion can transfer off to you and change in for the better.
This song and this album in general shows the vulnerability of Tyler Joseph during this time period. He recognizes that he was guilty of weak communication with God and that he was neglecting the most important relationship in his life. He shows his struggle to get himself back on the right religious path, and himself begging God for forgiveness. The subtly and metaphors in this song make it ever more heart and gutwrenching. It has a bit of a simplicity but also a sense of complexity to it, and it really makes me think. It's a piece of art, and it's sometimes too relatable.
Addict With a Pen is such an emotionally draining song that gives me the chills every time I listen to it. Along with it's upbeat rhythms and down to earth lyrics, it contains some of the most raw and true emotions that no one can ignore.
This song is simply amazing. It has been my favorite song for as long as I can remember, you can interpret it anyway you want, as you can with mostly any one of their songs. I still burst into tears when I hear it. This song deserves #1 not #15.V 42 Comments
This song is a work of art, and I'm absolutely obsessed. The lyrics and Tyler's voice are so captivating, bringing together the emotion brought out in this song. It's one of my personal favorites of all of their songs. I really hope they always perform this at their shows, not only does it get the crowd pumped, but I think everyone can create their own meaning to it and relate to Trees on different levels.
With a band as amazing as twenty one pilots, picking a favorite is tough! But the sheer beauty, gradually rising tempo, and all out bombastic finish give this one the top spot by a hair (over Guns for Hands) for me! The true meaning of the song (if you are familiar with Tyler's beliefs) is also a winner!
The lyrics of this song may not mean much to others, but they bring me to tears. Tyler may have written it for something else, but since the first time I've heard it, I've thought of it as a truly beautiful way to explain the disconnection that I feel from my religion, even though Inreally do believe. It may not seem like such a big problem, but it's a big struggle for me. The drum solo at the end sends shivers down my spine, if you've never seen them play this song live, go on YouTube and look it up right now.
Dang why so low thoughV 45 Comments
This song has amazing lyrics and is always just a great song. It's upbeat to the point where you can be cheered up just by listening to it. This song brings a smile to my face.
Will argue that this is their best song until I die. It's everything good about top in one 5 minute period. The genre switches, the music itself, Tyler's rapping, Tyler's vocal range, and I think Josh's drumming is just fantastic in this one
I love this song so much I literally smile when I hear the beginning of it despite the fact that it is an odd sound.
coolV 44 Comments
Twenty One Pilots have great song lyrics and great beats and I'm pretty sure that's what listeners expect from them; an upbeat and fun song with deep meaning. Doubt specifically is one of my favorites along with The Judge which are both upbeat and meaningful songs and I too do not know why it is not on of the top 5.
This is personally one of my favorite songs by twenty one pilots, and is also my favorite song at the moment. It gives me just this sense of realism and helps me put everything into perspective. "Shaking hands with the dark parts of my thoughts" is a great lyric from this song.
This is my favorite song, not only from twenty one pilots, but in general. I love the pure beat, the lyrics make me so emotional, and the song makes me want to jump up and dance. Honestly, this song should be in the top 5! I love it SO much! I recommend it!
Not a Twenty One Pilots fan at all, but in love with this song. That's me!V 30 Comments
This is easily the best song ever. No one should ever say those words unless they actually know what they are listening to. The song is amazing and different. Its not just another crap song about love. Their songs actually have meaning
To me, this song truly represents what TOP stands for. They are not your typical band. They want to tell people to wake up and be alive. And when people tell them to do something else, this is where "Lane Boy" comes in. It saying that no matter what people tell them (/They say stay in your lane, boy/), they keep on doing what they want (/But we go where we want to/).
This is their best song, way better than Stressed Out and also way more radio-worthy. It appeals to everyone, being upbeat but having rebellious and dark lyrics.
I like the bit at the endV 36 Comments
This song makes me feel something that I can't explain.
Semi-Automatic was the first TOP song I ever heard, and it will forever be my favorite. This song is so well written, and is just a true masterpiece. It really needs to be higher on the list!
"My shadow grows taller along with my fears." This song is a masterpiece and is so well written. The lyrics are very true for some people.
"I kinda like it when I make you cry" is one of my favorite song lyrics everV 15 Comments
After seeing them on tour, this song will always stick with me the most. The visuals were stunning, and there was a magic trick they somehow pulled off that I'll never forget as long as I live
It sounds like something my parents would listen to and I still love it because the lyrics are so amazing and meaningful. - AnonymousChick
Amazing, smooth dance track. Proves they can create any genre of alternative music.
This song is amazing. - ZeroBlasterV 11 Comments
This is beautiful and the line, "Take me out and finish this waste of a life," is truly so, so tragic and yet so horribly relatable, it makes me cry almost every time. The pain in Tyler's voice at times and the sigh at the end are all just chillingly sad and it's a really amazing song. Their best by far (although almost all of their songs are amazing, with 'Friend, Please', 'Guns For Hands', 'Holding On To You', 'Ode To Sleep', 'Migraine', and 'March To The Sea' being notably chilling at some moments.)
This song is so amazing... the melody itself is kinda eerie but beautiful, and the lyrics are SO POWERFUL (this can be said for p much all of their songs but trapdoor stands out to me)
Trapdoor is hand down the most underrated song of twenty one pilots. I mean most of their first album is. I think it is because how little they actually endorse it, like singing it live. Still the melody is touching and the lyrics are POWERFUL.
Very movingV 14 Comments
"This situation's becoming dire; my treehouse is on fire and for some reason I smell gas on my hands.. this is not what I had planned, this is not what I had planned! " SO. GOOD.
I didn't vote for this song but it is so good! To the opening verses to the catchy chorus and then to Tyler's powerful rap. Truly one of their top songs and am surprised that this song isn't more well-known.
Extremely catchy chorus and tune, and the rap is very powerful. My favorite lyric of all time is featured in this song, being: "I scream, you scream, we all scream 'because we're terrified of what's around the corner". Quite underrated if you ask me.
Relatable and greatV 23 Comments
I love the music of Twenty One Pilots because each song is full of emotion. Goner is the prime example of this. It is so raw, honest, and beautiful that it quickly became my favorite song of all time. I have listened to Goner countless times but I still find myself holding my breath and shaking with emotion at the finale.
The song has been anticipated since 2012 was originally a accompanied by different instruments but was never release properly as a single. Then it realeased and is as if he was confessing he wants forgiveness from Blurryface. It's so deep and sad and then the explosions of his emotions about how he feels about not being forgiven and the screaming and the pain he's going through at the end of the track. The tracks ending gives me chills down my spine. The best track they ever made. Powerful and incredible
Goner is an amazing song because it tells how he's breaking away from the blurry side of him while making it fun and interesting to listen to. I can kind of relate, but even if you don't he explains it within the song.
I love this songV 32 Comments
Truce is so powerful and has very beautiful slow and calming setting, it is also so beautiful because many people (including myself) can connect to the lyrics that are emotional yet amazing. This song is also so empowering, whenever Tyler sings "Stay alive for me", it truly allows me to feel happy inside and allows me to keep a steady head and to be strong when I know that I'm at hard points in my life. All in all, the song Truce is a gift from the Gods and it is helping me and many other fans to stay strong and it allows us to believe that things truly to get better and that anything is possible.
Truce is so powerful and I think the reason people love it so much is because most Twenty One Pilots fans could easily relate to the lyrics. Overall the song is very beautiful and the piano and vocals are very calming and it's definitely one of my favorites even though it makes me cry every time I hear it.
Very gentle and soft. The piano soothes me and calms me when everything else cannot. It's my favorite song despite the fact my favorite album is self titled. It makes me both happy and sad but most of all, it helps me get through each day. "Stay alive, stay alive for me."
This is my favorite TOP songV 33 Comments
I'm very disappointed this song is so low on the list. This song is beautiful, it's art. I shiver every time the chorus hits, the song is so relatable, showing Christianity struggle and other generalised difficulty.. Line that hits me? "Plummet as I sing"
This is easily my favourite song ever. I am so sad it is so low on the list. When I first listened to it, I was almost in tears. I am so glad this song is here
This song has a simple bass line, as well as effective use of baroque style instruments and a detailed rap verse that shows the struggles of humanity
This is so far the most beautiful songs Tyler has ever created in his lifeV 13 Comments
My all time favorite song. Relatable and deep, with raps, and great music. It helps me through anything, and gives me hope, which may be odd considering the lyrics are talking about falling apart, but it really does.
I wish I could have sex with this song it's so diddly darn good
I hear Tyler Joseph's Drown before this so I knew the second rap part and easily learned the first. It's pretty darn cool. - AnonymousChick
Great song would recommendV 8 Comments
Beautiful. In my opinion, all there best stuff was on their self-titled album, and this song was the best. As is usual with TOP, it has a deep meaning, without being boring or confusing. And it just sounds so beautiful!
Twenty one pilots has been going downhill since their self titled lp (car radio being the exception) and I think this was the standout track on their standout album. It is literally the most beautiful song I have ever heard. Tyler sings as if someone is tearing his heart out and the rap verse, while cryptic, embodies the song perfectly and tells a beautiful story. Best song by a landslide. - Thicc_Neeson
For me, the line "and I want everyone to know that I am half a soul divided" catches me every time. I literally have to resist crying, this song is so deep, and what's more, it's relatable
This song is stunning and helped me find some of the answers I’ve been searching for. The rap verse is killer and will stick with me forever.V 24 Comments
This song is so catchy and sounds so happy but in the song one of the lyrics are "Listen I know, this one's a contradiction because of how happy it sounds, when the lyrics are so down." They know how to get someone to tap their foot, and this song does just that and more.
Absolutely Amazing. One of my best friends, also a hardcore clique member, like me, we were singing this, and my other friends came up to us, trying to interrupt. One of them just gave up and started singing along with us. We sounded horrible, but still...it's the thought that counts.
I heard it for the first time and I just love the chorus. It makes me so happy and I don't know why. The song says that it's a contradiction because of how happy it sounds but the lyrics are so down. - AnonymousChick
It's amazing. The lyrics are so ingenious and the melody is so unique. - angle12684V 14 Comments
One of the best songs they have ever written. This whole first album deals with his faith so powerfully, and it's such a shame it's ignored in favor of the more "pop" material.
FINALLY! IT'S ON THIS LIST! This is such an awesome song. I just recently started listening to this album and this is one of my favorites
This Song is by far one of the most meaningful and most amazing songs that I have ever had the pleasure of Hearing.
This song is just a masterpiece full stop!V 16 Comments
This song describes how I feel on a day to day basis. I "break" multiple times a day, and I can't complain to anyone because they will just get annoyed with me (this is what has happened every time I've tried to vent to anyone, whether it's my best friend or someone I just met.) So, I'm forced to fake a smile and continue on with my life. And trust me when I say this: I will fake you out.
This is the first song I got addicted to. Tyler and Josh are two of my favourite celebrities, and I have quite a lot of celebrities I like (Brendon Urie is too perfect okay). This song brings back so many memories for me and it means so much; it's a brilliant song and I hope it gets higher.
Fake you out is my personal favourite, I just love the beat, lyrics like "i'll never be what you see inside" I love the message when I first started listening to their music this song was one of my least favourite but over time I listened to it instead of skipping it it finally grew on me and became one of my all time best
So underrated. It's so catchy, and the lyrics really get me. - angle12684V 18 Comments
Is it bad that I want this one to be this low on the list? I love this song so much and it's my all time favorite song. I never EVER want this song to become known to people who won't appreciate this song for the lyrics but rather only the beat like Stressed Out, Ride, and Heathens. This song means so much to me and I'm perfectly content with it staying unpopular and unknown.
This song made me cry because Ruby isn't just the down syndrome girl Tyler writes about. It is all the people I killed with my words. When he gets to the "tell our dad I'm sorry" I start crying because it's like how the heck can I dehumanize someone so beautiful... someone who is an angel
I don't know why this song is so unpopular, it's tune is amazing it's lyrics amaze me and it's the first top song I ever heard. So it's gonna be my favorite forever
THIS SONG IS REALLY GOOD! -MatteyatoeV 7 Comments
Knowing that this song touched me lyrically in everyday possible, it holds an extremely special and sacred place in my heart. Such a great cover.
Tyler Joseph is a cutie pie in general, but know he's even more admiring. Love, love, love this cover. Makes me cry ever time.
I cried like a baby the first time I heard it, still do sometimes. It's such a beautiful cover and reminds me off my boyfriend.
Tyler’s voice is so pure, so raw in this. It makes me cry every time.V 12 Comments
Oh my lord! How is 'Before you start your day' so low I'm honestly shocked. It's one of TOP's best song. It's full of passion, honesty, pain. At pain, you can feel Tyler tell us how he feels with every beautiful lyric. We can feel like Tyler is in the room pouring his soul into every note and lyric. It brings me to tears when I hear this elegant and silk song.
This is the deepest song of all of twenty one pilot's songs, you can feel tyler's pain through every lyric and every lyric gives you something to think about. Honestly this should be #1
Every time I listen to it cry. It has such a pure meaning and the lyrics combined with Tyler's voice are just amazing.
I listen to it every morning, and when I'm upset listen to it on loop sometimes. It's so calming, and so meaningful. This deserves to be in the top ten. My opinion, it's the most underrated TØP song.V 4 Comments
The message behind this song, as well as the way that it progresses from piano into a sort of electronic feeling growing in complication with each verse is what makes this song the best. I really connect with the Atheistic ideas, because I was forced into a religion as a child. I just connect with the lyrics on a very deep level
This song has more meaning in it's 1:40 minute long instrumental introduction then any of the songs on the radio today. Even the instruments in this song speak to me.
One of my favorite songs of all time. My heart literally stops when I hear it. It's just so perfect in every way possible.
I love this song! That's all I can say. It's too good to be described in lovefrombadlands's bad quality reviews. - lovefrombadlandsV 6 Comments
The pantaloon is an upbeat fun song that has some good meaning in there. Very very catchy and cute
Best song from their first album. Great album to ponder and a very good lesson can be learned from this song. - cartaris101
Great song, catchy, interesting lyrics. What's a pantaloon?
The live version was stuck in my head for a whole week.V 4 Comments
This song needs to be up there! Please listen to it and give it a chance, I clicked on this song on accident and it will forever be my favorite song of theirs now! "my eyes are focused on the end of land, but then again the voice inside my head says: follow me instead"
This song is one of those that I can most relate to. I feel like I am on a "march to the sea" every day. "Follow me instead" is exactly what that voice in my head tells me when I get too close to the end of land. I love this song so much.
This song is by far my favorite song of all time (save for house of gold) I'm pleasantly surprised to see that Stressed Out isn't #1, but I still think this song should be higher up
Honestly this song is one of my favorites of TOP. every time I listen to it, I feel calm and it's a perfect song.V 9 Comments
The song is a journey and it speaks the unspeakable. To me it's about that place that's dark and obsessions and torturous darkness, yet it's so hard to leave. Somehow you don't want to leave it- you got caught in its cycle. But you need to fight through for the people who need you. This song is beautiful and dark, but ultimately it fights the battle we all need to fight. It's incredible
Oi, guys, guys, guys... This song is OBVIOUSLY the best, why has it fallen off the grid to 39? Dudes, I am holding on to what I know, and this is my 4th favorite song of all time. I mean, Holding on to You is pretty high up, which means there're a bunch of Christians voting on this site, so come on guys, does "Redemption's not that far, and darkness is going down" really not just sell it? What more do you want? An arrow floating above Tyler's head saying: "This dude's best song is Glowing Eyes and I miss Chris Salih and Nick Thomas and Josh Dun can eat himself and Glowing Eyes is super epic and I want Chris and Nick back and P.S. Josh Dun is weird." (How to Steal a Dragon's Sword, anybody?... No? Cause the um... the arrow, and uh you know what whatever. You know what's the worst? When you say "You cannot pass! " and some dude is like: "Dude, it's you shall not pass." I mean seriously. Read.)
This song just has an amazingly happy sound to it, and its one of those songs you can listen to on repeat on not get sick of.
By far- the best song on this list. Just Listen and you will learn - dbzkidrsV 11 Comments
WAIT, WHY ISN'T THIS HIGHER! IT'S AWESOME, one of my really good friends is moving so then I will just listen to this song and be like, "we have problems but we don't care!
Such a great song! I'm really surprised it is so low down. At first, I didn't like it, but over time, just like many other TOP songs, I grew to like it, then LOVE it. This is one of if not my favorite of all TOP songs.
Amazing song. I really wish this was higher in this list. I normally go to work and put this on repeat one for a decent amount of time.

This song is so good and relatable in so many ways. Best thing is that it's not blatant, it can mean what you want it to mean. I think it's about someone who's always there, and is used as a punching bag, people make he/she feel bad to make themselves feel better because they know that they'll always come back no matter how much you hurt them. And then they have enough and everyone looks down at them because they're always supposed to be there for you. That's just my interpretation of it, there are so many.
This masterpiece is about how a good friend you can rely on to do the right thing is falling away, and tyler will do anything to help him back to his old glory "and I will carry all your names and I will carry all your names " best part
Extremely underrated. To me it can be about someone who always helps other people and he contemplates suicide and God tries to talk him out of it. Johnny boy represents any John Doe - nickay
More people gotta listen to this. Masterpiece.V 10 Comments
Who doesn't love this song? Honestly when I first heard it, it stabbed me in the chest with feels. It's beautiful, and it should be higher on this list. - GhostlyDawn
This is one of my favorite songs, I personally think it should be higher on this list. It's a really beautiful song.
This is the song that made me fall in love with twenty one pilots, so beautiful and amazing lyrics as usual
Love this song! It sounds like a Bobby Vinton song in a very good way.V 17 Comments
This song is my favorite right now. I've talked friends out of suicide a few times, and I've felt really low in my life as well. This song helps me hold on and even brings me to tears at times. This song should be at least on the top ten
Honestly, I have no idea why this song isn't at least in the top 20/30. This song has helped me through SO much in my life. It's one of the reasons why I'm still here, it reminds me of the people who do actually love me. It reminds me how selfish I would be if I were to go. This song is so raw and filled with emotion and makes me cry every time. Please vote this up
Honestly the song just makes you feel. You feel the pain and the sorrow. I've talked a friend out of suicide with this song that's how powerful it is. This song deserves to be in the top ten at least.
It's the best song on here! Why isn't this #1?V 17 Comments
This is my favorite song ever! It is by far their best song yet. I think this should definitely be #1. This song and Regional At Best are way too underrated. Most people haven't even heard of it. It is also such a hard album to find. If you find it, LISTEN TO IT!
Why is this fascinating song all the way at the bottom of this list?
The only reason this song is low ranked is because it is rare to find. But if you do find it, it is at least a top 10 for 21 pilots
It's the better version of Stressed Out I love itV 13 Comments
I was at a twenty one pilots concert and I heard the drums start and I whispered 'oh no' because my sister loves it so much. I love it too. It's so sweet. - AnonymousChick
I don't know, I guess I just relate to the chorus of this song a lot, with all of my friends, and my significant other, it makes want to live to grow old.
"This song is so fun to dance and groove to and is great when hiking or even just sitting in the car. You have to listen closely to truly understand the lyrics."
This song makes me live forever. - lovefrombadlandsV 13 Comments
Why isn't this higher? Like way higher. This is one of their most emotional and spectacular songs. But it's on RAB, and not many people even know that it exists. "Haven't you done enough to me, can't you torture someone else's sleep" always gets me. One of their best but quickly overlooked songs.
Tell me you're lying? This is basically one of their best songs, but ofc people vote stressed out. Not that have anything against stressed out its just that some people listen to stressed out and immediately love it, but refuse to listen to their older stuff. If anathema were listened by more people than I'm sure it would be higher up in this list.
How is this not top 10? The lyrics are so meaningful, and extremely relatable to a lot of people, and then the build up to the rap, it's amazing. The synths in this song are pretty amazing too - StevieJW01
The emotional overload of sound towards the last minute of the song played with the message sang in rap towards the end of the song gives me chills every time I listen to it. My favorite song of allV 16 Comments
I love it so much
Best song ever
Wait what? Panic! at the Disco doesn't have a song called Drown, BMTH does though. And this isn't even twenty one pilots, it's only by Tyler Joseph. #simplefactsV 2 Comments
To me, this song is a civil war in Tyler's mind. He tries to reason with himself that he's not the monster he views himself as in order to live. He tries to convince himself that it's society's fault, that he could accomplish no better, so he does not collapse into a pit of self-loathing and become more depressed than he already is.
Tonight I was in my room listening to music, and this song came on, and even though I listened to it over a hundred times, tonight I just fell in love. I kept on listening and am still listening now trying to understand how something so beautiful, so perfect, so amazing could be so under appreciated and I just love this so much
Amazing song, not just the music of it, but the fact that is a song like none I've ever heard before. To me it's about being torn between feeling so guilty and underserving so that you rebel against God and yet needing Him so much and longing for Him. These are words to a feeling I could never express and it makes the song so important and so astounding
I know most of the words because I love the song so much. It shows that people can relate to what's happening to you, and that it's okay not to be okay.V 3 Comments
An amazing representation of all the mess in Tyler's mind. The people in this site should be ashamed.
Yes oh yes such a happy song
Top 10 song for sure
This song perfectly mends together the dramatic elements of opera with Tyler's emotional and deep lyrics that touch your heart and make you think.
It conjures up so many emotions and puts it into a song.
So good, I wish it was in a real album.
SO RELATABLE IT IT JUST HOW I FEEL NOW BECAUSE ALL THE STRESS AND STUFF LOVE THIS
Yes, this is a cover up, but it was a beautifully done cover and everyone should listen to it!
I love this song so much, I actually first heard the cover by Adam Lambert (even though I know he wasn't the original artist) and loved it! To hear it by them, it was so amazing and it made me so happy
