#1 Twenty One Pilots: Stressed Out

The song that truly put Twenty One Pilots on the global music scene, this song alone was nominated for two Grammy awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group performance, the latter of which the group won.

With over a billion views on Youtube and even lead singer Tyler Joseph starting to complain about the overwhelming popularity of the song, it's not an overstatement to call 'Stressed Out' a worldwide sensation. It's reggae-rap like music coupled with vivid and powerful lyrics surrounding the challenges of growing up make for a perfect combination in what is close to a pretty perfect song.

#2 Twenty One Pilots: Holding On To You

Initially a feature on their second studio album "Regional at Best", 'Holding Onto You' was released as one of the lead singles for the band's highly praised "Vessel" album. With striking vocals coming from Joseph, it is a story about holding onto the good things about yourself whilst trying to navigate a way through the darker sides.

Featuring progressions and drops that keep a listener hooked and enthralled, the atmospheric nature of the song only heightens the depth of emotion 'Holding Onto You' carries with it.

#3 Twenty One Pilots: Ride

Another hugely successful single from the 2016 album "Blurryface", 'Ride' is one of the most listened to and instantly recognizable songs released by Twenty One Pilots. With a reggae-infused electro-pop sound behind it, 'Ride' is a song that's all about slowing down and trying to enjoy the 'ride' of life.

Joseph challenges himself throughout the song that he's 'been thinking too much' and that he should just learn to try and relax more. With over 650 million hits on Youtube, 'Ride' has experienced substantial success in the media with gaming platforms such as 'Pro Evolution Soccer' securing the rights to use the song in their game.

#4 Twenty One Pilots: Lane Boy

Sounding more like a lash out a those trying to drive the band's musical and creative direction, 'Lane Boy' is a song that really packs a punch. With a long and slightly suspenseful build up, there is an anticipation that the song is threatening to explode with life any second.

With one of the biggest drops in their entire collection, 'Lane Boy' goes big when it does get going. With some of the best drumming by Josh Dun accompanying the roar of pulsating synths, it's enough to take anyone's breath away.

#5 Twenty One Pilots: The Judge

With its distinct and somewhat unpredicted upbeat and cheery guitar strumming welcoming you to the track, 'The Judge' revels in standing out from what might make a typical Twenty One Pilots. The song progression, Tyler's on point rapping and the consistent happy-seeming nature of the piece make for a refreshing and original sound to the Blurryface album.

Although it still betrays deep hints about the nature of faith and salvation, there's plenty in this song that might remind you of something someone like Jason Mraz might have composed.

#6 Twenty One Pilots: Fake You Out

A hugely underrated track from "Vessel", Fake You Out is a song about putting up fake and false exteriors when you know that inside you're really struggling. A synth-pop musical masterclass, it's fast drops and exhilarating interludes carry the listener through a practical whirlwind of depth and genius.

Joseph's lyrical brilliance aside for the moment, the demonstration of going from something like a falsetto to rapid rapping is truly something to admire and marvel at, and very few tracks do him as much justice as 'Fake You Out'.

#7 Twenty One Pilots: Trees

One of the most stellar, pulsating and exciting songs to be performed on stage, 'Trees' is a synth-heavy electronic pop hit that never fails to work the adrenaline up a few notches more. Almost exclusively played at the end of the set, Joseph explained how 'Trees' is a song that is open to interpretation for listeners to decide upon.

It's a song that never fails to inject a new lease of life in someone, infusing them with such a huge amount of energy that when the impressive drop kicks in you won't be the only one jumping.

#8 Twenty One Pilots: Semi-Automatic

Filled to the brim with a level depth unseen in the vast majority of pop artists in today's market, Semi-Automatic is an introverted look on the world around you, with almost a retro-sounding video game style of backing music coupling it.

With extensive references to the night, Semi-Automatic is a story about experiencing doubt, insecurities, and troubles that come up regularly. It's a very personal song but comes with almost a contradictory level of happy sounding music behind it. The complexity and cleverness in the musical writing makes this song something to marvel at.

#9 Twenty One Pilots: Guns For Hands

As touching and truly emotional as it is happy and jovial in its sound, 'Guns for Hands' is another complex and largely ambiguous song that leaves so much up in the air for the listener to break down.

With an upbeat and energetic musical backdrop that sounds somewhere between a barndarn rodeo and a retro video game, the true nature of the song eludes to something some might consider quite a fair bit darker.

#10 Twenty One Pilots: Screen

With a peaceful, chiming piano piece running rife throughout the song, 'Screen' is a sound on the 'Vessel' album that perfectly blends the exposed and emotional nature of Joseph's lyrical style with a chilled, Mraz-like musical background.

The upbeat and collective nature of the song does a lot to warm your heart up listening to it, the catchy tune and easily listened to backing vocals making it seem more like a rallying cry more than anything else. A triumph over the darker things in life, 'Screen' is a song that carries itself to the top without the massive drops or pulsating reveling that makeup so many other songs on this list.
