The Top Ten

Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine
This song boosts my testosterone
Ha ha ha ha this is such an awesome song, especially 'because it beat the x factor (uk) into xmas numbuer one for 2009 (i think! )

2Beat 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.


No one wants to vote for others

3Ace 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..
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.


Motorhead is definitely the greatest badass band

4Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine
Baby above has small dick

5Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
Best song ever for the win

6We Will Rock You - Queen

7Back in Black Very Rare Version - AC/DC
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

8F*** Tha Police - NWA
This song was seen as the start of gangsta rap, and can you get anymore badass than gangsta rap. It's such as badass song. This song expressed the feelings of millions of black people living in the ghetto and what they thought about corrupt police.

9Man 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.

10Enter Sandman - Metallica

The Contenders

11Thunderstruck - AC/DC
Classic. Overused at some sporting events but still a classic.

12Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

13I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford

14Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones
Somehow, this song manages to sound like both the 1970s and today's world at the same time.


15Dragon Attack - Queen

16Joker and the Thief - Wolfmother

17Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

18Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
How is this not on the list?

19Aces High - Iron Maiden

20Objection - Shakira
