You Me At Six's Official Top 20 biggest songs
20 January 2021 | By Rob Copsey

With well over a decade of success under their belt, You Me At Six have become one of the most reliable bands in the pop-punk; their stadium-sized choruses and relatable lyrics have earned the Surrey band a global fanbase.

YMAS have never really been a singles act, with just five Top 40 hits, but their run of form on the Official Albums Chart speaks for itself: five consecutive Top 10s, including a Number 1 with 2014's Cavalier Youth.

With their seventh album SUCKAPUNCH on course to be one of their most successful records yet, we reveal the band's Official Top 20 biggest songs. First, a closer look at the Top 5.

5. Take On The World (2017)

The band's final single from their Night People album, Take On The World is the record's big ballad moment and is a rare co-write for YMAS, penned with James Bay, Jake Bugg and songwriter Iain Archer (Snow Patrol). The band's second most-streamed song (12.8 million plays) but fifth overall, Josh Fraceschi said of the track: "It's kinda like a declaration saying, 'Life isn't easy but whatever happens, I hope I can make it easier for you and take away some of the sting.'"

4. Bite My Tongue (2011)

Featuring guest vocals from Bring Me The Horizon's Oli Sykes, Bite My Tongue - taken from their third album Sinners Never Sleep - is YMAS at their darkest, with Franceschi once admitting the song is the band at their heaviest and angriest. The track is their fourth biggest, with 9.71 million streams.

3. Lived A Lie (2013)

The trailer for the band's chart-topping Cavalier Youth album, Lived A Lie is YMAS at their boldest and most commerical, with a towering chorus that proved they were more than capable of stadium-filling rock.

2. Stay With Me (2010)

A highlight from their second album Hold Me Down, Stay With Me - which has 11.06 million streams in the UK - is a slice of blistering emo-pop-rock that has comes from the same stable as Kings of Leon's Use Somebody.

1. Underdog (2010)

The song that sent the band stratospheric, Underdog's humugous chorus was a noticeable step up from their 2008 debut Take Off Your Colours - and helped the band score their first Top 10 on the Official Albums Chart with Hold Me Down.

Despite not being one of their five UK Top 40 singles (peaking at 49) and pre-dating the streaming era by four years, it's their most-played song in the UK, with 16.4 millions streams, and their biggest track overall.

'Underdog' is their only song to pass 200k, having been certified in May 2019.

I kind of forgot about 'Underdog' (it suffers from the Kasabian song of the same name being the first to come to mind) but that is probably one of their best songs, interesting to see that being their #1 song despite missing the top 40 and predating the streaming era.

In general they're a band I don't think about much but they have quietly built up a pretty good discography.

I always find it a bit meaningless how the OCC publish articles like that for bands/artists with such limited chart success!

The Swarm heart.gif Thought it would have been a bit higher on the list but it did well considering how heavy rock it is.

I actually thought Loverboy was their biggest hit surprised it only made #39 as it was a Radio 1 airplay favourite even after it charted. Its a bit too poppy for me from them so I didn't like it that much at the time. I liked Rescue Me, yes it was another track on the 'Airplanes' trend but I liked most of those style of tracks back then anyway. Unfortunately it only spent 1 week top 40 if I recall correctly which I was disappointed about.

I forgot about Lived A Lie until I listened to it there again, yes great song by them and I can see why it was their biggest hit in terms of chart position. Nostalgic sounding now too.

"The Swarm" wub.gif I remember when it came out and was played in Thorpe Park when I went. Surprised they only have one silver single though. I assume a couple of the others below "Underdog" must be close to 200k?

Obviously not at the moment though!

It is heavier rock than their other singles and so it was quite a moment when it made the charts (like Bring Me The Horizon's Drown in 2015 was too) as such heavy rock tracks were very rare in the charts by then.
