I only made this list because I hadn't seen it yet on this site. Hopefully people will come to it eventually.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Hometown

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. - ZeroBlaster

22 Taxi Cab

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

My favorite part of the song is, "Sometimes we will die and sometimes we will fly away." And also the fast part.🚕 - Catlover2004

23 Goner

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 song

24 Forest

"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.

I love this song. it has so much meaning and is by far the best twenty one pilots song to date. this song resonates with me a lot, probably the most of any of their songs

25 Fake You Out

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

I loaf it

26 Truce

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 song

27 Isle of Flightless Birds

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

Honestly so great and resonates with me, the beat is great and the lyrics are powerful!

28 Not Today

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

I love this song so much & it's just so catchy and the lyrics are creative. I mean, do you really know anyone besides TOP who sings about how they feel about the song & the beat, in the actual song? - lovefrombadlands

29 A Car, a Torch, a Death

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!

30 Fall Away

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 recommend

31 Ruby

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! -Matteyatoe

32 Before You Start Your Day

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.

33 Implicit Demand for Proof

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. - lovefrombadlands

34 The Pantaloon

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.

35 March to the Sea

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

How could this be no.36? how could you?
how in the world?!

36 Can't Help Falling In Love

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.

37 Glowing Eyes

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 - dbzkidrs

38 Polarize

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.

DA Best!

39 Johnny Boy

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.

40 Oh Ms. Believer

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.
