The Top Ten

1
Change (In the House of Flies)
At the first lines of the song I was almost bored, but when I've heard the chorus I stop for a moment until it ends. I always remember to hear it on youtube anytime I go to the interne shop.
Such an amazing song from a great band. Reminds me about Queen of the Damned every time I hear it
Absolutely brilliant song. It is so complex, and yet so simple. It can be interpreted in so many different ways. One of my favorite songs of all time.
[Newest]Damn near perfect song with a sound like no other

2My Own Summer (Shove It)
Wow... just wow. This song is bloody brilliant! How can you possibly get better than this? How can this possibly not be number 1? It's amazing!
Just awesome.. Great lyrics, guitar and this you should be at number one for sure. It's just amazing

Shove it shove it shove it!
YES! This is definitely the best song on this album and the band's best song as well. Just gonna write more.
[Newest]Best deft ones song hands down. The screaming is excellent and theta contagious guitar riff will be stuck in your head for months

3Digital Bath
this song is absolutely incredible! every time I hear it I feel every emotion hit me at once like a wave. it gives the sensation of free falling and drifting away. very powerful, very moving, an absolute perfect representation of music with feeling.
The emotion on this song is just amazing... I always like the heavy Deftones songs but there is something about this song that is mysterious and haunting and yet relaxing...
It haunts and soothes
[Newest]Every fiber of me is touched every time I hear this song. There is no song better. Anywhere.


4Diamond Eyes
"Time will see us realign. Diamonds rain across the sky. And shower me into the same realm... " What a great song! Definitely one of their best!
Love The guitar hear, and the lyrics... Amazing, my favorite, White Pony is a great album, but this is better, and where is You've Seen The Butcher? , Other Incredible...
One of the BEST RIFFS EVER!, Excellent song
[Newest]Simple yet very effective, near perfect song.

5Passenger
Possibly the darkest and the best song they've ever made. When second chorus kicks in it's impossible not to get chills.
Maynard and Chino voices are just amazing together
Great song Love Maynard and Chino! Amazing song, but ever single song of theirs is amazing
[Newest]This song is so beautiful. so soothing

6Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)
In my opinion, the best Deftones song. There is so much raw energy and emotion on this song, and the heavy guitar and screaming vocals will keep this song in your head for a long time.

NorwegianWood

This must be first... This song and "Diamond Eyes" are my favorite! My favorite part: "I don't care where just FAR" great part!
The best song off of Around The Fur and perhaps Deftones' best song of their early years, even though it's my personal favorite Deftones' song of all time. One of my favorite riffs ever.
[Newest]By far one of their best... Top 3

7Sextape
For me, this is the best song, because it's really emotive, so beautifull, every time I hear this song I must pick up my guitar and start playing the song, and when Chino start singing I just start singing, almost crying because of the beauty of this song. It should be in N# 1
A truly amazing song, its hard to believe its number 10, definetily my favourite deftones song, I love their early stuff like 7 words (can't believe it's not on the list) but this song is a simple MASTERPIECE, all about it it's beautiful, my body chills every time I listen to it with my headphones, should be at least n3
No 10 now but I'm sure this song will move up the ranks over time, it's one of their newest but definitely the most beautiful song they've ever written and Chino's voice is incredible on it. This and Digital Bath are up there with my favourite songs of all time

8Poltergeist
It has a beautiful ambient flow that makes the song seem like you falling
Hands down the best song on koi no yokan!
The chorus give me chills and chino's voice is epic
[Newest]All time favourite Deftones song. Always makes me think of my car!

9Bored
Great tune... Well put together... Awesome!
The raw youth and anxiety tone to this song helps me relieve the days I first listened to this song! BEST SONG!
Not a big fan of deftones but will say that this songs is truly amazing!

10Minerva
What in the name of Minerva this is doing at number 8? This piece of art screams the kind of sensuality that won't attract unwanted public staring!
It is a very explosive, in your face song. You think it's going to be calm, then bam. Surprise.
Every time I listen this song it makes me smile. I absolutely love this song. One of my personal all time favorites and should be #1!

The Contenders

11Korea
Chino's best screaming. One of their heaviest tracks to date.
Should be a lot higher, one of my favorites!

12Elite
RAWR! Awesome song! Get it now and you will believe me
Slipknot is my favourite band their songs 'wait and bleed' nominated at the grammy but the grammy went to 'elite' and I was so pissed and I said to myself I am gonna check this song but after checking it out I wasn't pissed not one bit. TRUST ME ON THIS ONE GUYS THIS SONGS IS THE TRUE BEAUTY OF METAL GENRE
Outright angry, extremely rough, pure Chino-Scream. This was a great triumph of nu metal. The instrumentation's put into an industrial level. Why this one of all songs made it to the GRAMMYs without any promotion is a mystery that will never be figured out, but oh boy, did this one deserve it.

Don't you dare tell me they weren't nu metal. Nu metal is not derogatory by default. It's only derogatory because Korn and Limp Bizkit exist.

13Hole In the Earth
Sat night wrist is so underrated! My favorite album of theirs and I've been a fan since ATF days!
Maybe not 1 but definitely should be higher

14Tempest
No words are needed to describe how great this song is. If you just listen to it you will know why it deserves to be in the top 10
Watch out the guitar riff b4 the chorus
This song should be number 1

15Rocket Skates
Damn epic with a lot of power riffs. Steph did excellent work

167 Words
Should be much higher
I love this guitar sound
This. this times a million. adrenaline is one of the greatest and heaviest nu-metal records ever.

17Beware
Easily the most epic deftones song, definitely in the top 5 for me.
So chilling, Saturday Night Wrist is way too underrated.

18Around the Fur
This song was stuck in my head for ages. I feel like I can relate to the song somehow, should I be different and maybe make a fool of myself to impress you? Or should I be like everyone else and be safe? Either way I want you to notice me somehow. That's how I interpreted it and I think it relates to a lot of people.

entersandman35

Seems as though th easier listening songs got the top votes. I prefer their heavier sound. I can name a few favourites but the chorus to this is explosive. So much energy in this!
The song that made me fall in love with this band.

19Knife Party
Deserves to be way higher on the list. Simply a masterpiece, with chilling vocals.
"this song should be higher" doesn't do this song justice. I get goosebumps every time I hear the two opening chords. After that, it truly can't be described with words.
Best song, or at least the most underrated. Just listen to it, and come back singing "In this room, we're all anemic; in this room, anemic and sweet.."

20Engine No. 9
Belongs in top 10
one of their heaviest songs amazing
This list is all wrong, we need Engine no,9, Root, Headup and 976- EVIL in the top ten.
