2 Beat It - Michael Jackson Beat It - Michael Jackson

How is it badass? I mean, it SOUNDS cool but it's a song about knowing when to run from a fight. Bad is BADass. I mean, it has half of the word in it's title. - Lasvegasxavier

3 Ace of Spades - Motörhead Ace of Spades - Motörhead

Okay, most of the songs here are NOT what you would call BADASS... Ahead of this motorhead song of true rage as a true badass song would perhaps only be "bad to the bone" in this list..

Not my favorite song from motorhead but still a kick ass one, almost all of their songs have a much better chance getting here than most of the songs actually in this list like born to raise hell or orgasmatron.

This and Gimme Shelter are the two most badass songs on this entire list. I wonder what the two of them would sound like mixed together. - xandermartin98

Motorhead is definitely the greatest badass band

4 Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine

This song is amazing because of the vocals and the powerful guitar - Ajkloth

Come on think of a time when something badass happened and back in black wouldn't work.

Not the best song ever but cool for walking in slow motion

Better listen to Pat Benatar or

I remember this song from the runescape clan war montages. That time was pure bliss.

10 Dragon Attack - Queen Dragon Attack - Queen

The Contenders

11 Joker and the Thief - Wolfmother Joker and the Thief - Wolfmother
12 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

Badass song...first song I learned to play

13 Man In Box - Alice in Chains Man In Box - Alice in Chains

Love listening to this song in my car really loud. Layne and Jerry's vocals on this song are great. Never get tired of hearing this song.

Works best when you're slowly getting out of a car.

14 Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones

Somehow, this song manages to sound like both the 1970s and today's world at the same time. - xandermartin98

15 I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford
16 Thunderstruck - AC/DC Thunderstruck - AC/DC

Classic. Overused at some sporting events but still a classic.

My dad showed me this when I was little, I've always loved it
