The Top Ten

1
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
[Newest]Your kidding right? , some of you people should listen to a song called BEFORE I FORGET, I love psychosocial and all but this doesn't deserve number 1 maybe 4 or 5 but not 1, also am I the only one here who loves Vermillion or Iowa?

2Before 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
before I forget was the first to listen so I like it and believe that's the best
theirs best song
[Newest]Simply one of the best Slipknot songs ever I love this vermillion and people=sh#t

3Duality
MICK THOMPSON SPECIAL... MIND BLOWING.. PHENOMENAL... ITS A PIECE OF ART...
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.
THe best slipknot song ever mad good lyrics drumming bass (RIP Paul)
[Newest]Agreed this one is a masterpiece and their best.

4Wait 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.
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.
[Newest]Why this men? Wait and Bleed is the #1 for sure.

5Snuff
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
[Newest]It deserve to be number 1
More comments about Snuff

6Dead 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!
[Newest]I love this song!

7People = 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.
[Newest]This song embodies everything Slipknot stands for!

8Eyeless
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
[Newest]You Can't See California Without Marlon Brando's Eyes!

9Left 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
[Newest]Just... Epic. Some reason I love it. Heavy and unique. Plus one of my favorite things in a song, get heavier on the chorus at the end.

10Spit 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
[Newest]Who all voted for this? Plastic Fans!
Vocals are so brilliant! I don't understand how a true slipknot fan cannot vote for this piece of brilliance to be number 1!


The Contenders

11Sulfur
Awesome intro, chorus, solo, and ending. Just listen to it you will see what I mean.
THE BEST, I REPEAT, THE BEST SONG OF SLIPKNOT. NO MORE WORDS.
guys actually listen to this song its incredible, you can't beat the drumming at the beginning of this song
[Newest]Powerhouse of a song, should be higher on list

12Vermillion
Vermilion isn't even in the top ten?

Are you guys kidding me?

This song is down so low
?
Agreed vermillion is brilliant and should be in the top ten :(
Why not in TOp Ten?!
We want it get in top ten!
Resident Evil apocalypse want it too...
[Newest]The devil in I is better

13(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.
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

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
[Newest]Everyone is right this should be first

14The Heretic Anthem
I found this song probably their heaviest

someguy12345

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
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!
[Newest]Honestly this is my new favorite song at least put it to 8

15Surfacing
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
[Newest]It should be number 1 because in live shows they get help from the fans though

16Pulse 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
This song should be much, MUCH higher than 15. This might as well be Slipknot's anthem. It's like Undead for Hollywood Undead or Sick Of You for GWAR. This is my favourite song off of Vol.3 and deservingly so. This has one of Slipknot's best guitar solos. Beaten on by a handful of songs...by handful, I unfortunately mean like 7 or 8.
[Newest]Listen to this song all the time

17The Nameless
Really good guitar and lyrics probably my favorite song from slipknot!

jeff_is_g

This song makes me go crazy in the best ways possible
I love it and should be in the top 5
Too epic for number 10
C'mom! The Nameless should be in the top 10! This is the wrong spot to put this song in. The chorus part is very amazing and so is the guitar part. This has to to be possibly one of my favorite Slipknot songs. Maggot for life!
[Newest]This song should way be top ten. Its an amazing song. When the mellow chorus comes in it kicks my ass every time!

18The Blister Exists
This song can make a 80yr old headbang... Its that alive!

Amazing drumming by Joey. Under-rated!
Come on guys! How can this not be in the top 10? Their live concerts of this song are AMAZING! Their headbanging just sends a jolt of energy through u! The playing is awesome too! Defineteli a top 10! Coreys vocals are great hear too!
The best song ever its (THE BLISTER EXISTS)
[newest]
This song would turn anyone into a metalhead - even your Nana!

19Disasterpiece
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)!
come on people! better than every song to top 5... Eve oh yeah
This is BULL! This song is the best by slipknot, before I forget sucks compared this, joey just takes this song away on drumming
[Newest]Why is this so low down this is worthy of at least the top 10 at minimum, this song is a masterpiece and one slipknots finest songs

20My Plague
'I'm Just a Bastard, But At Least I Admit it' Lyrical Genius beats all the rest easily.

fismeleep

Actually, I'm trying to find the other best slipknot song, not only Psychosocial, Before I forget, etc. , and I think this song is the best one for me...

09ShamsulBahriel

Excellent opening verse which really does make you want to take a bite out of a freshly ripped heart.
[Newest]This list is all messed up. This song easily in top 10..

21All Hope Is Gone
People go on YouTube and wotch the videos he's flippin people off that's totally sick
This is masterpiece. Simply very best song from slipknot. Such an underrated song

22Vermilion Pt. 2
Incredible! The vocals in this song as amazing! I love they can change from heavy and do tat amazing
This is such a touching song. One of the most touching songs of this band, and one of the most meaningful, not the best, but it is better than some songs in the top 10.
I really love it thit
This is the best band ever, in my opion at least. However, of all the perfection that makes up this band, Vermilion pt. 2 has to be my favorite, tied only to Pulse of the Maggots.
[Newest]Just the best song, they should make more songs like this one.

23Everything Ends
NUMBER 33? This song is AMAZING. I thought this would be one of their most notable and top songs.. So hard not to scream along to this.
Top songs are all mainstream. This song is slipknot at their best. How could this song be at 33?

Too hard for the little kiddies probably.

Iowa is one of the most underrated albums ever in my opinion.
Why this is not on number one? Nothing can beat this lyric.
[newest]
The first song I listened to. I listened to it when I was 10

24Purity
Hands down, one of my favorite slipknot songs, you wont regret taking the time to listen to this one. Definitely in my top 5 songs. Seriously.
I think that it's easy to see with this only being at number 40 is that Slipknot have too many awesome songs! Brilliant band!
This song deserves more... It has to be on top 10! This one kills every body's ears, the lyrics is beyond the eternity cause this song is purity!
[Newest]My favorite slipknot song! Should be #1!

25Gematria (The Killing Name)
fantastic lyrics. cool drumming. gets you pumped!

abhishek_mj2005

Come on people... Come on ): WE WILL BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN!
F-ing Awesome song. Their next best after purity in my opinion

26Vendetta
Vendetta is one of their best songs. The instrumental is enough to be a good song, but at the same time, the lyrics are good. This song isn't the number one best song by slipknot, but it deserves more credit than it has. Check this song out, you will probably like it.
Brilliand drumming, singing, bass... such an underrated song
The fastest double bass drums I've ever heard

27Liberate
awesome song, and great to rock out to.

xrrrockstar

Amazing song, amazing riff #1 for me

28Scissors
Amazing song. So emotional. I can't belive this is so low, and Eeyore isn't even on the list!

29Gently
WHAT? Gently not even in the list, this song should be in in top 20 AT LEAST, what my fellow maggots forgot about how great the song is. There are two versions and both are good enough, IOWA version is real kick ass, but MFKR version, man its an epic

30No Life
Please vote sensibly. This is surely one of their best. This song defines their style and its lyrics is deep. If you haven't heard it, hear it and then see.
AMAZING... Any slipknot fan has to love this song, it is true nu-metal and my favorite just after eyeless and wait and bleed... As you can probably tell their first album is my favorite.
in my opinion their most unique sounding song.
[Newest]Without a shadow of a doubt this is SlipKnot at their rawest, absolute best.

31Prosthetics
Dammit man, this song being so low is a mistake
Are you kidding me, this is the best song ever. It's starts off really creepy, then really gets going'. It's a masterpiece. How is it 28th. #1

32The Virus of Life
Feels like you're inside the mind of a serial killer/rapist... But in a good way. Great riff in the prechorus and really catchy. BRING ME TO MY KNEES!
I feel like most thought this song was an instrumental piece or something. It is one of their creepiest songs.

33Three Nil
I love this song! Its simply amazing! But my overall favourite is by far 'Danger - Keep Away'. One of the most amazing songs in history!

34Opium of the People
Amazing, it is so energetic and fist pumpingly brilliant
Quite underrated/unknown song but pure awesomeness. Vocals are amazing!

BeeBlue

It say the thuth

35Wherein Lies Continue
THIS IS AMAZING, it's not one of the main and should be, the chorus is insane!
I won’t control or restrain things I do not understand!
Way way better than before I forget, just listen to it, you'll see why I voted this awesome song!
By the way psychosocial still their best song
One of the most underrated songs in existence.

36I Am Hated
Underrated song, one of the best on Iowa
What the hell this song is amazing come on at least in the top ten

37Diluted
Great song, not very well known and I don't think it was played live very much. give it a listen you'll enjoy every second
One of the best songs of Slipknot! M/

38Gehenna
This is a totally dark, brooding song that seemingly could only be dreamed up by a bunch of complete psychopaths. "You were designed for my punishment"
I love that heavy doom/gothic sound
UNDERRATED SLIPKNOT SONG EVER
[Newest]Damn this song is underrated!

39This Cold Black
What has this world come to? If you're a true Slipknot fan you would know that this is one of their best songs. It is said to be the heaviest song on All Hope is Gone. The lyrics, vocals and guitar work are amazing! This Cold Black and The Blister Exists are my favorite Slipknot songs! If you haven't heard this song yet listen to it! It will make you headbang for sure.
This Cold Black = This top ten
Great Song, very Heavy!

40Eeyore
heaviest song by the heaviest band in the earth

zobaer

For those who said Slipknot doesn't have impressive guitar work.
It's so deep. , the story behind it is amazing

41Scream
One of best songs, top 5 in my opinion..
Come on people, lets get it higher
Why is this song down here... As soon as I hear the opening drumbeat start up, my blood pressure escalates. I have grip makes permanently forged into my steering wheel because of this song. This needs more votes pronto!
This song is really good, even though this Slipknot song is not too popular...

09ShamsulBahriel


42Iowa
The most underrated song and my favorite one (love)

43Prelude 3.0

44Skin Ticket
72nd? Where are the REAL MAGGOTS!? This, purity, eyeless, gently, and left behind are my personal faves, but 72nd? Wow... SKIN TICKET for TOP 10! Come on maggots! Show skin ticket some love
This is one of the angriest songs I've ever heard, DEFINITELY deserves a lot more credit

45The Negative One
This just beats psychosocial as the best slipknot song. Amazing tune/beat (whatever you wanna call it) easily their best ever song... So far!
First single from their upcoming 5th studio album!
Sounds great, I can't wait for the rest of the album

UltimateHybridX

The craziest song ever, it's so perfect♥

46Butcher's Hook
Rank this in top 5
This song is so underrated it shouldn't be 44

47The Shape
Most underrated song I love this song, although I never see them play it live =/

48Circle
Come on guys! This song makes me cry! This would be in the top, I don't say first but nearly. Think about that please
AWESOME song. Even better than Vermilion pt. 2 but this should really be ranked higher (Danger - Keep Away too)
This songs rocks and give me a different feeling wic rocks

49Danger - Keep Away
This is one of my favorite songs... It has a nice rhythm... It should have been in the top 20 at least

50Snap
One of their best songs ever. I don't see why it's so low. Seriously, maggots! CHECK THIS ONE OUT!

51Stamina
Stamina is 25?! Stamina is N.3! Paul Gray goods riffs and good drumming Joey and corey is total super! This song is real name a Slipknot RIP paul gray

52'Til We Die
I love the song because it helps me remember Paul... plus very sad :C
No matter how much I listen to it it never gets old!
Way down on the list, undoubtedly one of the best songs of slipknot. Way better than psychosocial!

53Tattered and Torn

54New Abortion
New Abortion is here? Come on people, this is one of the heaviest slipknot's songs ever, is top 10 at least!
So underrated but definitely one of my favorites

55Metabolic
Word for word, this song has more concentrated emotion than any other, Corey Taylor even said it was his favorite. It tells Corey's story better than most, if not all songs by Slipknot. That, coupled with stupendous musicality and vocal prowess makes Metabolic the greates and most underrated of Slipknot songs.
This is what I call heavy. Corey has in my opinion his best studio screams on this song. It also has one of the most heaviest riff what I have ever heard. Too bad this song is not noticed even by fans ;_;
This is one of their best songs. Iowa is clearly the best and most heaviest album. Especially this song.. Absolutly incredible. You can tell who's a real fan of Slipknot by their album knowledge...

56555 to the 666
I'm guessing you mean the heretic anthem? Awesome live. I love it.
Gets me whating to jump around every single time I hear it!

57The Devil In I
Melodic, heavy and atmospheric. A perfect single for the upcoming album.5: The Gray Chapter
The Lyrics, combined with the great energy of the music makes me excited for their new album. This is in MY top 10.
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

58Welcome

59Only One
How the hell is this not in the top 10? It's so amazing! Lot's of good hardcore energy! A (sic) song to mosh to!

60Get This
Who ever didn't put this in the top ten

Suck these nuts
What the guy below this said.

61Vermillion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)

62Me Inside
This song is just outstanding... If you don't like this song you are not a true slipknot fan, it has such an amazing build up into that part when he says "I WASN'T PROMISED A THIING" just so good.

63Execute
I love the lyrics...

dieghe98


64Interloper
Is a roadrunner record demo. and you can't thumbs down because it's a fact

65Killers are Quiet

66Blackheart

67742617000027
Shouldn't be in the top ten but it's totally sic man...

68Child of Burning Time

This is not slipknots best 10 songs it is more stone sour than slipknot but man likeu voted snuff and dead memories you must vote this...the vocals are excellent most of you haven't heard it thts why its last...HEAR IT AND REMEMEBER...for me its in top 20 for sure

69Dogfish Rising

70Despise
If you love Purity, you will love this song because it's the original "Purity". I actually like both versions of the song so yeah. You wont regret taking the time to listen to it.
If you love Purity, you will love this song because its the original.

71(515)
I'm not even sure this is a song (considering it doesn't have any instruments in it), but it still represents how dark the Iowa period was.
Slipknot rule but this, this is just a horrible song

72Do Nothing / Bitch Slap
Th this is one the bbestslipknot songs that I personally like other than some songs. This song deserves to be in at least top 20. The top ten chosen songs are too mainstream.

73Custer

74Sucks

75Don't Get Close

76Confessions
One of my favourites from the MFKR era, the bass in this song is simply sic!

77Killpop
