Greta Van Fleet Underrated Songs

Updated: Feb 27




#1 Talk On The Street


Why is it underrated?


Not many ever mention this song as being one of their favorites, it’s not played live anymore, and most people only know the song if they listen to the entire From The Fires EP. It’s got a great guitar riff, great solo, great chorus and great beat. Many fans would agree this song is underrated and should be appreciated more.


Favorite Live Performance:




Favorite Lyrics:


“Everyone knows that there’s talkin’ on the streets, remember the days when there’s no one to defeat, follow me down to the mountain of the sun, forgetting the end as your new life has begun”






#2 The New Day


Why is it underrated?


This song is NEVER talked about. To my knowledge, this song has never been mentioned, asked about in an interview, and has never been played live. This song is very uplifting, positive, is about starting a brand-new day and speaking of how love doesn’t fade away.



Favorite Live Performance:





Favorite Lyrics:


“Let the new day shine it’s light on me, let the old way nights too dark to see”


“You’re a child in the garden you’re growing up I’ll watch you bloom, and your

dreams are not forgotten you’ll be a woman soon”


“Love doesn’t leave when you fade away”


“Love doesn’t fade away”






#3 Get You Down

Why is it underrated?



Okay this song is unreleased; many fans ADORE this song. It was played several times at musical festivals and small shows the band did on their first tour in 2017, possibly playing it even earlier than that in their hometown of Frankenmuth, MI. The chorus is catchy, the guitar’s great and Jake even sings in it. Is there anything else to make it more perfect?



Favorite Live Performance:




Favorite Lyrics:


“See you sitting by yourself nothing’s gonna get you down, I’ve seen it so many times before nothing’s gonna get you down”


“Up on top babe everything seems like a dream, but in turn look it’s only a feeling”


“Oh, look what you done to me nothing’s gonna get you down, Oh you look at the people we’ll be I’ll pick you up when you’re on the ground”





#4 Brave New World



Why is it underrated?


Even though this song has been played fairly often at shows, I still somewhat believe this song doesn’t get as much attention as it should. Speaking of nature, climate change and not being hypnotized. There’s a certain eeriness about this song that I just love. It’s probably the guitar sound mainly. But when this song is played live, which I have been so blessed to experience, you can experience the entire feeling of this song.



Favorite Live Performance:





Favorite Lyrics:


“Take one look at your skies and in the darkness realize, kill fear the power of lies, for we will not be hypnotized”


“Turn back the clock within your glass of sand to a time of love in this blackened land, a silent child climbs a mound of char where he plants a seed that grows beyond the stars”





#5 Mountain Of The Sun


Why is it underrated?


A pretty popular underrated one, but isn’t getting the attention it deserves. It’s a very fun, light-hearted love song.




Favorite Live Performance:




Favorite Lyrics:


“The sun shines brighter from above, and you’re the woman that I love”


“I’ll make you mine, you’re my sunshine”


“Take me with you when you go, to be with you is all I know”
