Top 10 Bring Me The Horizon Songs

From metalcore to arena anthems, this British rock band lives to melt your face off. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Bring Me the Horizon Songs.

For this list, we’ve chosen our entries based on a combination of the artist’s fan favorites and their most commercially successful songs. Bring on the clenched fists!


#10: “Throne”

That’s the Spirit (2015)

 Serving as a departure from their earlier metalcore style, Throne offers fans everywhere an electronically influenced sound. Eliciting comparisons to songs featured on Linkin Park’s “Meteora” album, the single remained atop the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart for 12 consecutive weeks. In the US, the single was the boys’ first release to reach the top spot on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart. Accompanied by a music video that borrowed thematic influences from pop culture Titan Game of Thrones, the track currently sits at over 60 million views on YouTube. If that’s not a knockout in itself, the song was also used as the official theme song for the professional wrestling show, NXT TakeOver: Respect.


#9: “The House of Wolves”

Sempiternal (2013)

 The definition of a clear-cut pit-starting song, this hard-hitting jam tackles the issues of God and religion. While the song clearly highlights Sykes’ lack of religious beliefs, at its core it offers a plea to believe in something. When asked about the meaning behind the song, Sykes says that there is no true salvation, and people should strive to get better for themselves. Though the song was featured on 2013’s Sempiternal, which defined a change in sound for the band, the song borrows influences from their previous record Suicide Season for its sound along with emotionally loaded lyrics.


 #8: “Hospital for Souls”

Sempiternal (2013)

One of the band’s most self-reflective songs from the band, this track sends listeners on an emotional journey through a personal struggle with what appears to be substance abuse. Acting as a closing statement from Sempiternal, the song lyrically mirrors themes of inner demons and analyzing the consequences of your actions. In an interview with ARTISTdirect, Oli Sykes describes the lyrics as being about ascending from a dark place and rising from the ashes as a changed individual. Featuring a haunting verse in which Sykes takes asks the questions of a psychologist, the track is lent a harsh sense of realism, which new and old fans have come to love about the band.


 #7: “Can You Feel My Heart”

Sempiternal (2013)

One of the first songs written with keyboardist Jordan Fish, this anthem marked a turning point for the band, shifting to a more electronica-based sound. Through its lyrics, the track is linked to the realization of and admitting your problems, making it an appropriate opening for Sempiternal. In the US, the single reached number 26 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart, and its music video has over 28 million hits on YouTube. Finally, if this song didn’t want to make you get up and fight enough, with its head-rocking riffs and roaring drums, the song was featured on EA Sports UFC video game soundtrack in 2014 – talk about a hit!


#6: “Sleepwalking”

Sempiternal (2013)

Mixing a melodic tone with emotionally charged lyrics, this single is recognized by frontman Oliver Sykes as one of the band’s best-written songs. The lyrics appear to lend themselves to Sykes’ struggles with depression and drug abuse. In fact, in an acceptance speech for Album of the Year at the Alternative Press Music Awards in 2014, Sykes opened up about his addiction to ketamine and his stint in rehab, which inspired the album. The song achieved great commercial success, peaking at number 14 on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart, proving that the mirrors don’t have to whisper about how much they love this track.


#5: “Diamonds Aren't Forever”

Suicide Season (2008)

One of the most aggressive songs on our list, “Diamonds” offers everything fans have come to know and love about the band. Featured as the second single for the band’s 2008 Suicide Season, this track is chock-full of heavy screaming and high-speed metal. Not buried in the track’s heavy elements are lyrics about living life to the fullest, not caring about material things, and refusing to give into society. This song is all but guaranteed to spark a “wall of death” at any live show, and we refuse not to love every minute of it.


#4: “Drown”

That’s the Spirit (2015)

One of the catchiest songs by the band, “Drown” is a plea for someone to help lift the weight off life off your shoulders. Given the song’s big arena feel, the single offers a glimpse into the growth of the band and their music from their earlier metalcore and deathcore days. In 2016, Oliver Sykes dedicated a performance of the track at The Royal Albert Hall to a friend in the audience who battled and beat cancer. The song also features a vibrant music video and demonstrated that they definitely didn’t sink with this track.


#3: “Shadow Moses”

Sempiternal (2013)

As a signature “call-and-response song”, Shadow Moses does nothing but get fans amped up. On the lead single to the album Sempiternal, which means “everlasting time”, the band presents the notion head-on with chants such as “we’re going nowhere” and “over and over again”. Including a video that could cause motion sickness in the faint of heart, the band makes sure we’re not going anywhere with its excessive camera panning and stop-and-go motion. The song also features references to the main setting of hit 1998 computer game, Metal Gear Solid, and was included in Guitar Hero Live, allowing anyone to shred like the boys.


#2: “Chelsea Smile”

Suicide Season (2008)

Credited as their most frequently performed song at live shows, this is the track in which the band succeeded in achieving their goal to make both the heaviest and catchiest music possible. Lyrically, the song deals with the pressure of keeping a secret and faking a sense of happiness. Here we get the meaning behind the title, referencing the infamous “Chelsea Smile,” a facial wound worn arguably most famously by Heath Ledger’s Joker in “The Dark Knight”. The son’gs music video is packed with heavy partying, making it easy for anyone to get off their feet jumping along with a clenched fist.

 Before we unveil our top pick, here are some honourable mentions:


“Pray for Plagues”

Count Your Blessings (2006)


 “Go to Hell, for Heaven's Sake”

Sempiternal (2013)


“Crucify Me”

There Is a Hell, Believe Me, I’ve Seen it. There Is a Heaven, Let’s Keep It a Secret (2010)



#1: “It Never Ends”

There Is a Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen it. There Is a Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret (2010)

The band’s lead single from “There is a Hell…,” and first ever to chart, utilizes choral vocals and electronic elements that have become a signature sound for the band when they blend softness and heavy aggression. As one of their biggest tracks, the lyrics highlight the struggles of the music industry where artists can easily get caught with certain temptations, with the music video featuring an injured Sykes being chased by demonic beings that represent said vices. Acclaimed for its expanded sound, chilling chorus, and full-throttle pace, this song holds a special place in the hearts of fans everywhere, and makes us hope it never ends.
