This list, like my last, is very situational and could fluctuate at any moment. Also, I really wanted to put Avenged Sevenfold's new single "Nightmare" on this list because I've been listening to it practically nonstop for 2 days but it probably just isn't right to add a song on here that early. So, just know that I LOVE that song, and you can listen to it on the official youtube page, or, hell I'll embed it here:
That said, let's get going on the official top ten of mine, with songs that are time tested and in my opinion, excellently excellent.
10. Audioslave - Like A Stone
This is one of the few songs that I love that I actually have the strong urge to sing along to while listening. Something about this song just hits all the right chords with me.
9. Mudvayne - A World So Cold
Much like my pick for number 10, this is one of those songs I love to sing along to. I'm not the world's biggest Mudvayne fan, but many of their songs are good, and this one is obviously my favorite.
8. Avenged Sevenfold - Beast and the Harlot
This song has all the parts to a classic metal song. Killer intro, killer solo(s), great vocals and meaningful lyrics. Epic.
7. Stone Temple Pilots - Interstate Love Song
Whenever this song comes on, I immediately crank the volume. One of the songs I remember the most from the 90s, and the first song that I bought as DLC in Rock Band.
6. Metallica - The Unforgiven II
Many people largely prefer the original Unforgiven song from the black album (which is an excellent song, too), but I think the second one sounds far more badass.
5. Stone Temple Pilots - Plush
My favorite song from STP. Not much else to say, just listen to it!
4. Pantera - Five Minutes Alone
This song always gets me pumped up. It's brutal, and the music video is also pretty cool.
3. Alice In Chains - Would?
I was glad to see more game soundtracks getting this game, as it is awesome. I'm a decent fan of Alice In Chains, but this song takes the cake by far. Most people's favorite Alice in Chains song I'm guessing. I LOVE the unplugged version, probably better than the studio one. Here it is:
2. Mushroomhead - Solitaire Unraveling
I may not be the largest Mushroomhead fan nowadays, but I still have immense amount of love for this song. It was their first big single when Universal Records backed them. Funny part about it is when I first saw this video on TV, I thought it was terrible. But, tastes change as you know, and when I later discovered and started loving this band, I found that the song I previously hated was now one of my favorite songs of all time.
1. Metallica - One
Without a doubt, in my opinion (of course), the best Metal song ever created. I doubt any song will ever be able to touch its excellence. Linking to the non music video version because the music video, ironically, is one of the stupidest ones I've ever seen and annoying.
There you have it. There are a lot of songs that I couldn't believe I cut from this list, but it had to be done.
As a bonus, I'll just say my current favorite band is Avenged Sevenfold.
With that said, come back tomorrow when we start talkin' 'bout vidja games. Peace!
