List Rules Vote for your favorite songs by the band Genesis. No Phil Collins solo songs allowed, he has his own list.

List of the top Genesis songs, as voted on by fans like you. Genesis began life as a critically-adored art rock act of the '70s. After mastermind Peter Gabriel left Genesis, drummer Phil Collins took over vocal duties, and the band became chart-topping soft-rockers. This poll includes all of Genesis's radio hits like "Land of Confusion" and "I Can't Dance," but true fans know that many of the band's finest tracks never made it to the airwaves. The focus here is on Genesis, but there's an entire list dedicated to the best Phil Collins songs

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 page. Is one of your favorite Genesis 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 stand up and create your own version by re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
