Best Slipknot Songs


The Top Ten

1 Psychosocial Psychosocial

I don't know anybody who likes slipknot but this song sure rocks for me. EPIC RIFF.

The Best song among the more heavier metal(including Death) songs... It's just EPIC. The Best heaviest Intro ever and the best growl to be ever made with which the song takes off gets even more heavier more Perky... I used to cut the Riffing part of great metal songs put them as my ringtone. But when I heard this, I decided nothing can beat this! Because, NO NEED TO CUT... The Intro does it for you! Love it...

Simply the best, first Slipknot song I've listened to and in my opinion the best one. EPIC

Simply a Masterpiece, great composition, maybe the best metal song ever!

2 Before I Forget Before I Forget

Thanks slipknot, for this amazing song. This is obviously your best work, and that is saying a lot. I know someone who hated Slipknot, but loved this song.

This is one of the best metal songs ever! I absolutely love it!
Stay sic fellow maggots!

Slipknot have made many awesome songs

3 Duality Duality


THe best slipknot song ever mad good lyrics drumming bass (RIP Paul)

This list is stupid... Who votes here? Little kids? This is easily number 1. 2nd is Before I Forget, Eyeless or Psychosocial 3rd and 4th and Wait And Bleed 5th.

Best song from them... Musically, lyrically, and in every other way possible.

4 Wait and Bleed Wait and Bleed

What?! song number 4?! this song and spit it out should be tied for number one! I think the song is about coreys suicide attempt and how he stopped before he actually killed himself.

The lyrics are fine, the song isn't. In fact, surprises me to see it this higher.

Just because a song wins a Grammy doesn't mean its good. Wait and Bleed is way better than before I forget. When I 1st heard this song, I loved it instinctively. Corey Taylor's vocals are simply amazing. Duality is their second best and after that Snuff. Before I forget should be somewhere at the bottom of this list. Its chorus is a bit lame. - hanaan143

THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! Its amazing! When I first heard it, I feel inlove with it like instantly! Before I forget is an okay song too! But I just love this one! This and Spit it out, completely awesome. I think before I forget should be like... Three.

My favourite song, just I'm starting to shake and tremble when I listen to it

5 Snuff Snuff

Its the best song :) Very deep and lots of meaning in it. They couldn't have done better with this song:)
Snuff.. Enough said. :)

it takes a lot of talent for a band to make such a good song in a different genre

This song is very deep and heavy but you can also tell that it was made by a metal band

This song got me into Slipknot. Pretty much proves that Corey Taylor is undoubtedly one of the most versatile and talented musicians of all time. - CrimsonShark

6 People = S*** People = S***

I know you're all thinking about how songs make you feel emotionally, but I couldn't care less. I'm a musician and in this song Slipknot displays some of their best musicianship, which is really what makes the band. Not masks, awards being won, an image, etc.

Great song and screams. The drums in this song are my favorite

This song catches Slipknot at their most honest period. They all hated each other during and it shows in songs like this one. Putting all of that anger into songwriting for a band like Slipknot leads to only one thing... Pure awesomeness, not just in this song but the whole album. This should at least be in the top 5, if not #1.

Real anger leads to the best writing. Iowa overall is the best slipknot record but this is the best song from that album.

7 Spit It Out Spit It Out

Can't quite understand why this isn't in the top 10.
You can feel the adrenaline raging through your body when you listen to this! - goeminne.angelo

This is Slipknot! Great Song!
Maybe the songs above are more melodic and maybe this is not the Slipknot song I would listen to all the time, but when you choose the number one song for a band, you have to choose a song that defines the band. Spit it out would be the one, I think..

Definitely the best should be #1 great vocals, great guitar and sid has a big part in it. And on one of their best albums

I agree my 5th favorite slipknot Song

8 Dead Memories Dead Memories

Awesome lyrics..
Great music and vocals also!
Song is simply great..
But I think it should be ranked higher :(
In top five at least!

One of the best metal songs ever! Can't stop listening to it! It's mindblowing!

Great song, really accessible, killer guitar and a serious performance from Joey. SLIPKNOT RULE!

Not a big fan of their's. But I've tried quite a lot of their songs. But I liked this song the most. - zxm

9 Eyeless Eyeless

this is not only the best songs by slipknot, but also the best metal songs ever composed by any of the bands in the entire universe. just listen to the song and feel why it is the best. the screaming, sick lyric, awesome energy, everything makes the song simply THE BEST! Go sLiPkNot!

Sexy track, I masturbate with my ear drums mentally with the music that tickles my insides

Slipknot is the best.
I love you slipknot, with my all heart.
You're the best. You are the king...
Hello from turkey to MAGGOTZ

10 Left Behind Left Behind

This song is actually LEFT BEHIND, it should be in the top 3! What is HAPPENING?! This is trademark Slipknot! Amazing!

Good song not my favorite but in the top 10 really good lyrics
Chorus is good

Best song by slipknot! Psychosocial is good but doesn't deserve number one or even two for that matter same with before I forget that songs too overrated

Another classic. This is one of the best choruses Slipknot ever made. I like the man riff, the lyrics, the chorus, the screams, everything! this song is awesome, one of the best ones in Iowa in my opinion. - Wolf92xd

The Contenders

11 Sulfur Sulfur

Awesome intro, chorus, solo, and ending. Just listen to it you will see what I mean.

guys actually listen to this song its incredible, you can't beat the drumming at the beginning of this song

This is probably in my top five favorite Slipknot songs. I don't know why, but it gives me a different vibe than other Slipknot songs. I can't describe, I just love it. If I was forced to hear this everyday, I'd do it with no problem, haha. And the video is awesome too. One of my favorite songs on one of my favorite albums by the band. - Wolf92xd

Best ending ever, or almost so. The rest in the typical Slipknot song, with screams, a catchy chorus, scratching and an involving drum line. 11 is definitely not enough

12 (Sic) (Sic)

This is one of the most intense songs I have ever listened to. Why this is not One is beyond me. Amazing lyrics, aggressive vocals, and in the end, the vocals just blow you away. Better than psychosocial, maybe tied with duality.

Are you kidding me slipknot top ten without (sic) being in it? I can't rate which song is their number one but this song should be on the top ten, Pshychosocial, dead memories, and songs like that are good enough but don't deserve a top ten status, come on fellow maggots vote sensibly

I just don't understand why this isn't even on the top 10. What were the people thinking when they chose Psychosocial over this? All Hope Is Gone isn't all bad, but the change in style was a major downfall. - Brace5

One of the best songs in this list. It should be over a lot of songs that are in the top 10, not because they're bad, but because they aren't as good as this. This is a masterpiece, Slipknot defining, One of nu metal's best, what more do you want? This is unbeatable, it should be in the top five, but people always blindly vote for Duality and Before I forget. They're good songs, but a little bit overrated in my opinion. This isn't overrated and it's musically and lyrically better than those too. Vote for this! - Wolf92xd

13 The Devil In I The Devil In I

Melodic, heavy and atmospheric. A perfect single for the upcoming album.5: The Gray Chapter

This by far the best slipknot song amazing riff mick is a genius awesome lyrics love the whole regular singing then start screaming when Corey says come step inside see the devil in I

The Lyrics, combined with the great energy of the music makes me excited for their new album. This is in MY top 10.

It was hard to choose between this and Psychosocial. But I had to vote here because The Devil In I brought me into Slipknot.

Awesome composition! Good Guitar work nice drumming! Nice choice upal! I've loved the song too!

This was the last song they played at Sonisphere this year! IT WAS AWESOME! R.I. P Paul Gray

Brilliant song to scream into the ears of society! This is when they made some good music! Before Dead Memories that horrible song

This should be in the top 5.. What's going on in the world?

15 Vermillion Vermillion

Agreed vermillion is brilliant and should be in the top ten :(

Vermilion isn't even in the top ten?

Are you guys kidding me?

This song is down so low

This song is so in-depth. Even the vocals add to the story. The way Corey Taylor changes his voice from a calm state to a desperate cry absolutely captures the descent into madness that the song's protagonist goes through. Every line in the song can be interpreted differently depending on who is interpreting it, and that's what makes it so beautiful. The fact that the song's message can be different for every listener- depending on what THEY have gone through in the past- insures that this song is relatable to everyone, from the most hardcore maggot to a Justin Bieber fan. Why is this song not in the top ten? There is no answer.

Definitely should be in top 10, Paul Gray's bass in this is honestly so clever

16 The Heretic Anthem The Heretic Anthem

I found this song probably their heaviest - someguy12345

How can you say you are a true maggot and not have this song in your top 10? ITs simply amazing and gets your adrenaline pumping! If you're 555 than I'm 666!

As a pure metal fan Iowa is definitely my favorite album and this is a great song, makes me proud of being a metal head

This should be in the top 3, best iowa song

17 Disasterpiece Disasterpiece

If there are ANY maggots on this site, please vote for it, it the BEST! Before I forget and snuff SUCK, they AREN'T slipknot, slipknot is the grindcore/hardcore metal from the first 2 albums, the other 2 are them trying to be progressive rock, VOTE FOR THIS! (all caps VERY NECESSARY)!

This is BULL! This song is the best by slipknot, before I forget sucks compared this, joey just takes this song away on drumming

come on people! better than every song to top 5... Eve oh yeah

I love the part when Corey sings ''Noises noises people make noises when they're sick'' (I think that's what he says lol), but the entire song is awesome, pure rage. It defines the whole album and it's a classic from the band even so much years after it's release. - Wolf92xd

19 My Plague My Plague

'I'm Just a Bastard, But At Least I Admit it' Lyrical Genius beats all the rest easily. - fismeleep

Excellent opening verse which really does make you want to take a bite out of a freshly ripped heart.

This song might not be slipknot's best, but it is so good. It has amazing lyrics, like the top comment says. It is the best on the Iowa album, and the Iowa album is their best album, so that is saying a lot.

By far their best song in my opinion. How is this not top ten?

20 Pulse of the Maggots Pulse of the Maggots

6?? this should be 1! Maggot for life - Trivium

This song should be number 2 with Psychosocial 1 and before I forgot 3

You're kidding me right? 2% of votes for this song? This is definitely my favorite, especially the verse that starts after that guitar solo. It's just so energetic! Love this song and Slipknot!

20? Bump it up, this is even better than I thought it would be. I had really high expectations, too, - GREATEST
