List Rules Vote for your favorite Boston songs, not just singles and hits.

List of Boston songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. Boston was a major hit-making force of the '70s and '80s. Their top-selling albums combined hard rock guitar riffs with catchy pop hooks. All of Boston's major singles are included here, from "More Than a Feeling" to "Amanda," but real fans know there are other awesome songs to vote on besides those radio staples. Music videos and lyric videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list.

Is one of your favorite Boston songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then start a revolution and fight back by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
