Top Ten Songs That Sound Better As an Acoustic

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 TenXW

1Come 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

2World 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

3One - Metallica

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

4Wake 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

5Dazed 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

6Don'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

7Hallowed 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

8Snowblind - Black Sabbath

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

9Comatose - Skillet

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

10I'll Be Gone - Linkin Park

This song would be even more legendary. - Alpha101

The Contenders

11Coma White - Marilyn Manson

This would sound great as an acoustic. - Alpha101

12Machine Head - Bush

This would be amazing as well! - Alpha101

13The 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.

14The Last Day On Earth - Marilyn Manson
15All I Want - a Day to Remember
16Love Song - Korn
