Top Ten Best Mastodon Songs


The Top Ten

1 Blood and Thunder Blood and Thunder

One of the songs which got me into Metal in the first place! First heard on Need for Speed, this is my all time favorite of theirs!

My favourite. Heard it first in Need For Speed

Hard selecting the order of all other songs except this one, which is without doubt number one.

Awesome song, it is one of my favorite.

2 Oblivion Oblivion

Metal sounds so great with vocals that harmonize, like they were trying to prove they could sound good but won't get off their metal high horse and stop singing like they had a tracheotomy.

How can you not like this song? Everything you want in a metal song... Heavy riffs a melodic touch and a kick ass guitar solo! Off one of the best metal albums of all time in my opinion!

Only one? Wow, that was a biggest mistake in your life! This song can tell you how awesome Mastodon is, how epic songs they write. Listen and go for more.

Pretty much just play this song on loop. - Buneroid

3 The Czar The Czar

This is the song that really got me into the band. It's legitimate heavy metal, but it's not obnoxiously loud or fast, and it sets their music apart from mainstream metal.

This song is the reason I love metal.

Mastodon's guitar work at its best! Doesn't get much better then this! Probably Brent Hinds' best solo.

Almost 11 minutes of straight epicness! The guitar solo is ridiculous! One of the best!

4 The Last Baron The Last Baron

The first time I heard this I knew I'd heard the greatest track I'll hear in my whole life.

Please, please take my hand
Please take my soul to rest
So we can always be around

Crack The Skye may not be my favorite Mastodon album, but The Last Baron is by far their best track!

One of the best epic pieces of metal ever.

It sounds beautiful and threatening at the same time.

This forest is growing faster than I can tell. As much as I love Leviathan, Blood Mountain is still my favorite Mastodon album. 'tis excellent. - djh101

One of the best songs I've heard them produce. The way the smokey vocals match the hypnotic riffs is a wonder.

In your face and eloquent at the same time.

6 Sleeping Giant Sleeping Giant

It's just beautiful and awe inspiring. The general feeling the song possesses just captivates anyone who listens.

The song has the most incredible atmosphere I have ever heard. It embraces me with such madness

The riff with the delay is hypnotic.
Can't get it out of my head.

That riff man enough said

7 March of the Fire Ants March of the Fire Ants

Remission is an underrated album. But that's not to say Leviathan and onward doesn't deserve the respect it has. Remission has some kick ass tracks, and this has to be one of the best. Love Mastodon.

Great riff and solo. This is one of very few songs in the WORLD that I just can't get enough of. This is an absolutely skull-crushing song.

Lol Last Baron above this master piece, sure, where are the real Mastodon fans?

Way to low at least number 2

This song is AWESOME why is it rated so low? What

The surf guitar parts, banjo picking, a guitar solo, just mastodon doing what they do best. Just an awesome song!

Ripping track! Monster riff near the end makes me smile

The banjo makes it awesome

9 Crack the Skye Crack the Skye

The song defines prog metal to me and it may fall second to Blood and Thunder but it deserves to be in the top 5 - PsychoSandman33

God damn, 10th? This is EASILY the most emotional song out of Mastodon's discography, Scott Kelly's vocals are simply amazing, and it is just plain beautiful.

Most intensely emotional song I've heard by them yet. Scott Kelly's vox are so good!

10 Curl of the Burl Curl of the Burl

Great song from the Hunter! Their new album is awesome, os is this song!

This song is about the mixing a from cuting a especial part of a tree which worth a lot of money with the consuming oh meth with the money from the curl of the burl. It's a dificult song to understand but it is awesome

I believe most people overlook this songs because it' s far too different from Mastodon' s riff madness. However, I think that is why it stands out, it is an extremelly moody song, and my personnal favorite.

11 The Wolf is Loose The Wolf is Loose

The drumming, the guitars, the lyrics, EVERYTHING on this track is just perfect in the most godly ways, possibly the most intense album opening song in the history of music? I think so. Possibly the best song from their hands down best album

I think that this is just a great wrap up of all their styles. Really great work and VERY inspirational riff.

All I can say is wow to this tune. Immense. Best album opener ever? Awesome drums and guitar work.

"As the soldier walks through the crimson tide..." Best song, off easily their best album

Awesome song! Great drums!

This song perfectly displays Mastodon's abilities. Beautiful, thick guitar riff, amazing drums, and some of the most intense yet wonderful vocals Mastodon ever produced.

What a stand out killer track from mastodon superb display of drums with terrific vocals.

Sludgy and intense. Song that got me into the band thanks to Tony Hawk's American Wasteland on the original Xbox.

This and Siberian Divide are the 2 songs from Blood Mountain that are swept aside from the others. Their actually one of the most unique and beautiful mastodon songs ever written - bigmike137

How is this song so low on the list!? The intro to this song is beautiful and it's hands-down my favorite song from Blood Mountain!

This song is so orgasmic it causes me to implode with euphoria
