It’s been 10 years since Mumford & Sons made their debut, with Sigh No More arriving in October of 2009. The first strums of “Little Lion Man” still feel frozen in time, as the band has continuously broken new ground over the past decade.
The latest chapter is Delta, the band’s fourth album which has carried them through 2019 and around the world. Another step forward personally and sonically for a band that’s already accomplished so much, including a GRAMMY for Album of the Year.
Before the group closes out another successful year, they will headline RADIO.COM and ALT 92.3’s Not So Silent Night at Barclays Center on Thursday December 5. As they get ready to take the stage along with Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant, and more, let’s take a look back at the songs Mumford & Sons have played live the most.
10. GHOSTS THAT WE KNEW - 309 TIMES
A plucky and emotional ballad from Babel that builds as only a Mumford song can.
9. WHITE BLANK PAGE - 353 TIMES
One of the oldest songs from the band, and still one of the most gripping. Arriving in 2009 on the band's debut.
8. TIMSHEL - 353 TIMES
I literary nod to John Steinbeck and the power of choice.
7. DUST BOWL DANCE - 387 TIMES
A perfect slice of storytelling from the band's 2009 LP.
6. I WILL WAIT - 393 TIMES
Arguably Mumford & Sons most popular song, and still a chest-beating anthem all these years later.
5. ROLL AWAY YOUR STONE - 401 TIMES
A bluegrass banger with a wink and a skip in its step.
4. AWAKE MY SOUL - 468 TIMES
"Where you invest your love, you invest your life." A perfect and sincere song from a group that does it better than almost everyone.
3. LOVER OF THE LIGHT - 511 TIMES
One of the most epic climbs in the whole catalog, "Lover of the Light" remains a standout moment of any Mumford show.
2. LITTLE LION MAN - 558 TIMES
The tune that launched it all and a melody that's been unshakable ever since.
1. THE CAVE - 576 TIMES
There's some songs that are more popular, some we have more emotions tied into, but this is quintessential Mumford & Sons bursting out of every note.
