Every band has that one song that’s a part of their identity, no matter how good or bad it is. Radiohead has Creep, Blur has Song 2 and Oasis has Wonderwall. Sometimes, the song becomes so integral to the band’s reputation that it’s hard for them to shake ​it off, no matter how many other stellar releases they might have. For Poets of the Fall, that song is Carnival of Rust. Though there’s no denying that it is a magnificent song, Carnival of Rust is far from the band’s best. If you too can’t wait to see the band live in Bangalore, it’s time for you to go beyond the big hit. Here are 10 Poets of the Fall songs better than Carnival of Rust:
