Top Ten Best Twenty One Pilots Songs

21 Trapdoor

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 moving

22 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

23 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

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 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 song honestly makes me cry every time I listen to it. I was never a twenty one pilots fan, but since a dear friend of mine has been struggling with depression and told me his favourite artist was twenty one pilots, this has now become my favourite song. The honesty in his voice of when he says 'the sun will rise and we will try agan' and 'I will fear the night again, I hope I'm not my only friend.' It gets me every time. Truce should definitely be higher up than #25!

26 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 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

I wish I could have sex with this song it's so diddly darn good

The First Album has the best Vocals by Tyler, And the Music was Amazing, that was a Song that will never be repeated

27 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

It's amazing

28 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 gives me danks

29 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

The Beat is so simple yet so likable and the lyrics are fantastic! This is in my personal top 5.

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

30 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

31 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

It's good

32 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.

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.

Their best song I think, after flightless birds. the lyrics to me represent losing your faith in god and the music is incredible. when he screams rain down I get goose bumps

34 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.

35 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.

36 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.

One time I was just a wreck and I locked myself in my bathroom and started playing music. I had never heard this song but I was too depressed to change it. I let it play through and by the end I felt so much better. this song honestly needs to be higher on this list. If you haven't heard it please listen to it. Thank you.

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

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 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

This is a really beautiful song, I seriously don't get why it is this low

40 Friend Please

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?
