Top Ten Songs That Sound Better As an Acoustic

Alpha101
There are some songs that are fast and heavy, but also sound great, or would sound great, if they were sung as an acoustic, with very little help from instruments.

The Top Ten

1 Come as You Are - Nirvana Come as You Are - Nirvana

One of my all time favorite Nirvana songs. While I like the original version, the unplugged version is much better, and packs a punch. - Alpha101

2 World So Cold - Three Days Grace World So Cold - Three Days Grace

Again, while the original was good, the acoustic version is much better. It brings a tear to my eye when I listen to it. - Alpha101

3 One - Metallica One - Metallica

The original version of this song contains very powerful lyrics, but when played as an acoustic song, it is something magical. - Alpha101

4 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

My favorite Green Day. It holds very sad and emotional lyrics. Slowed down, this song is even more sad and depressing. - Alpha101

I never heard the acoustic version but whatever...I just love this song and his voice! - Britgirl

5 Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin

While I'm not sure if it would be as good as the original, one thing's certain: it would be amazing. - Alpha101

6 Don't Cry - Guns N Roses Don't Cry - Guns N Roses

While the first half of the song is slow, it starts getting heavier as the song goes on. It sounds fantastic, but I think it would sound even better if it kept it this way for the entire song. - Alpha101

7 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

While the original song always gives me goose bumps while listening to it, I'm curious what it would sound like as an acoustic. - Alpha101

8 Snowblind - Black Sabbath Snowblind - Black Sabbath

A fantastic Sabbath song, definitely one of their best. - Alpha101

9 Comatose - Skillet Comatose - Skillet

This song, while being fantastic already, would sound even better with just a guitar, and John Cooper's voice. - Alpha101

10 I'll Be Gone - Linkin Park I'll Be Gone - Linkin Park

This song would be even more legendary. - Alpha101

The Contenders

11 Coma White - Marilyn Manson Coma White - Marilyn Manson

This would sound great as an acoustic. - Alpha101

12 Machine Head - Bush Machine Head - Bush

This would be amazing as well! - Alpha101

13 The Nobodies - Marilyn Manson The Nobodies - Marilyn Manson

There already is an acoustic version of this song, sung by none other than Marilyn Manson himself. He can be found as an extra track on the Japanese release of Hollywood.

14 The Last Day On Earth - Marilyn Manson The Last Day On Earth - Marilyn Manson
15 All I Want - a Day to Remember All I Want - a Day to Remember
