Best Industrial Songs of All Time

These are easily the best industrial songs of all time, whether it be industrial metal rock or electronica it doesn't really matter here they are.

The Top TenXW

1Guilty - Gravity Kills

An incredible band with a fantastic sound! I got to meet these guys when they got started. I've been a fan since. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't have them playing. While they have a loyal fan base, it would be nice to see the size of that base if they had more airplay. I truly hope they bless us with another album. These guys know who made them famous and for that Gravity Kills gives much respect. They love their fans as much as the fans love them. I truly think of them as my brothers!

A very underrated band, debut album sold almost half-a-millions copies, their first single hit brief mainstream populatrity and toured with officially the Sex Pistols. This is a very good band, and at that time they were considered one of the most promising young bands in the industrial music scene.

This song epitomized the blending of industrial and metal, and paved the way for many other industrial bands to creep into the 90s music scene. But it did it not with a whimper, but an atomic blast.

Highly underrated - their music sounds as fresh and relevant today as it did when they came on the scene in 1996. So excited they are back together and cannot wait to see what they have in store for their fans next!

2Feuer Frei - Rammstein

Greatest band to ever walk this earth. The definition of EPIC music, till lindemann is GOD!

BEST BAND EVER! Their song lyrics are dark but yet give you a sense that if you think about those things you aren't the only ones! I don't care if their German its perfect metal with techno!

rammstein for me is the best of industrial metal band! but I think that du hast is the best of their songs, but the both of them are very expressive

One of the best songs. I Love Rammstein. - Monomachos

3Closer - Nine Inch Nails

This song has something. Watch the video. The beat is perfect to have sex! And It becomes more more and more powerfull.

This song is a very powerful addition to Industrial Music all around. It, along with the rest of the album, deals with desire, addiction, and is a purely amazing combination of beats and sounds to make an Industrial anthem.

Closer itself wouldn't work with any other band NIN have such good songs that it's stupid to vote against it even if all the song did was revolutionize the entire media single handedly in the 90's and had such a badass video that MTV won't show it anymore oh huh that kind of is a big del of a song hmm..

The first industrial song I heard, I still listen to it today. The remix "closer to god" is better, but the original is still awesome.

4Save Yourself - Stabbing Westward

Stabbing Westward got weird with that last album. Anyone who ever saw them in the early days can attest to a great band that seems to have either lost its way or went a direction no one else was willing to follow.

Either way, this is a good song, but 'Haunting Me' was probably better.

5Headhunter - Front 242
6Butterfly Wings - Machines of Loving Grace

MOLG always wins when compared to a variety of industrial rock bands. Just listen.

8Rock Is Dead - Marilyn Manson

Great song. Truly. It's even better than Beautiful People. I'm serious. His best song. WOW! Just WOW! Go Marilyn Manson! WOO!

OK so this song will be debated however here's my reasons. The music is absolutely brilliant. The song has a structural charm. The lyrics are amazing. If you've not heard this song please go out of your way to hear it. -

His music is absolutely amazing, but the man himself, is creepy (when onstage) otherwise, he seems to be pretty intelligent.

Rock is dead. Long live paper and scissors (just kidding! ).
