3Walk - Vulgar Display Of Power
the distortion of the riff is just unbelievable... so heavy and so sick
one of the best solos in the history of metal and the whole song is absolutely amaizing
Can't believe how simple this song is to play. I love how the solo fades out then goes back into the intro riff. that's sick.

5Domination - Cowboys From Hell
The best riff ever... And the solo is also amazing too bad Dimebag is dead and won't compose more epic riffs like that... R.I.P Dimbag
the outro is one of the sickest things I've ever heard
This song puts an evil wry smile on my face like ALL Pantera songs... I could put 25 of their other songs in its place and not feel upset about it... I think of this live video when I hear it. killer song. I miss these guys...

65 Minutes Alone - Far Beyond Driven
One of the heaviest and greatest songs you will ever listen to. I literally want to mosh every time I hear it.

YaleMetal

One of the heaviest songs of all time. Gets me pumped up to do whatever it is whether its running or tying my shoes!
5 minutes alone is the grooviest pantera song ever. come on guys vote for it! It deserves the number 1 spot. Just 4% is not good enough for such a great song!

7I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven
This song gets me pumped... damn now I'm broken!
R.I. P Dimebag Darrell
The music is simply awesome truely the gratest song of pantera rest in peace dimebagg I think the best song of pantera must be I m broken truely the best pantera song ever been recorded
ohh!! dimE awsome in this song
More comments about I'm Broken - Far Beyond DrivenListen to sample

8Hollow - Vulgar Display of Power
You posers want to look tough by voting for all the heavy stuff. If you even paid attention to the lyrics and how Phil screams this song out, this song would be number one. It's got the heart, and the balls to say, "Hey, I'm allowed to cry too. My best friend is dying here and there's nothing I can do about it. " It's not about the heavy riffs, even though Pantera was the heaviest out there. It's about how the music grabs you, and if Hollow doesn't grab you, you're just another poser.
Defenetly goes before 5 minutes alone but both great songs

GodsNameIsDime

I can't believe this is so low if you havnt heard it go listen to it now so awesome should be in top 3

9F****** Hostile - Vulgar Display of Power
Pure rage and power.
Stimulates your heavy metal senses!
Will and still is kicking every other band's asses!
How is this 13? This song has everything Pantera is good at. Killer grooves, thrashy tone, insane vocals, and an awesome instrumental. To me, this is a defining Pantera song and should be placed way higher then 13. It should be in the top 5 in my opinion.
Less than 3 minutes of pure singalong power and aggression! The Machine Head cover is quite kickass too

10This Love - Vulgar Display Of Power
Yess. My favorite other than cemetary gates. These people have amazing taste in bands. I love the whole song from start to finish, The Frontman phil is something to be respected.

11Mouth for War - Vulgar Display of Power
Brutal metal, with a positive message in the lyrics. Love rocking' out to this one!
This song pumps me up every time I listen to it. Brutal song, easily one of Pantera's best works. Dimebag's solo is amazing.
Not only Pantera's best song, one of metals best riffs. Awesome song.

13A New Level - Vulgar Display Of Power
This is a tough list to do I love em all. But I remember when this album came out laugh out loud wish they were still tearing it up. I seen far beyond driven at the panel room in Chicago when I was younger, them and slayer have the greatest moshes. Pantera is the greatest ever. RIP dime we miss you
Probably Pantera's most complex song which is probably why it was rarely played live. Bass line is beyond sick.
Definitely one of the heaviest Pantera songs.
Listen to sample

14Revolution Is My Name - Reinventing The Steel
This song has to be higher, this song is dimebag the lyrics are completely true for any metal head, and its just amazing. Yeah pantera has a lot of other good songs, but this one is the best.
Brutal album... the only band who has gone harder, and harder... and this song is culmination...
One of their top 5 songs, no doubt about it! Come on people give this song a chance and you won't regret it! M/

15The Sleep - Cowboys from Hell
Underrated song off the album, it has a chilling acoustic riff in the intro, as well as one of Dimebag's best guitar solos ever!

petrucci75hammet

People keep voting hit-songs that were accepted on MTV that doesn't mean these songs are their best songs. Listen to the structure of this song, the melodic intro, the amazing solo, the deep lyrics about responsibility...
This song really shows off Phil's powerful and dynamic vocals. The rest of the guys obviously the best at what they did and still do to true metal heads today. Amazing song

16Primal Concrete Sledge - Cowboys From Hell
Easily one of the top five songs. Super fast shredding, ripping vocals, and just awesome overall rhythm. Why is this as low rated as it is?
Best drumming from Vinnie Paul ever that double bass just kicks ass
Short but one of the best Pantera songs ever written

17Psycho Holiday - Cowboys From Hell
Awesome opening and continuing riff. The vocals work really well with the groove and flow. An easily overlooked song
First song I heard from Pantera
Listen to sample

18Slaughtered - Far Beyond Driven
I listened through all of Pantera's albums in 1 very long sitting. There was one song that stood above the rest. It was "Slaughtered." The opening riff/verse is like a jackhammer, the chorus riff is like a chainsaw, and the interlude is like being surrounded and shot at by a firing squad armed with a vast assortment of different guns. There is no solo and for this song, and this song alone that's a good thing. This is basically Texas Chainsaw Massacre the song.
Song is epic! That riff is A class please help it get in the top 20
Way under rated song. Top 3 for me, if not my al
Ltime favorite

19Suicide Note Pt. I - The Great Southern Trendkill

The guitar and lyrics are so delicious to the ear

WHAT IS THIS SONG DOING HERE AT 56TH?!. One of the best intros, catchiest riffs and godliest choruses! It's a pity people vote before to listening to all the songs!

41Medicine Man
Come on guys, this song is really incredible! Phil's vocals are very good, these high pitched sreams.

'Understand, just take his hand. He's the medicine man! '

It's the medicine MAN!
Listen to sample

42Where You Come From - Official Live: 101 Proof
The intro is the single most amazing intro to ever grace groove metal! Dimebag's riffs rock you to the core in this track and it is somewhat overlooked seeing as it is not on any of Pantera's studio albums
Listen to sample

43Goddamn Electric - Reinventing The Steel Listen to sample

44The Badge - Far Beyond Driven

45I'll Cast a Shadow - Reinventing the Steel
Easily one of Pantera's heaviest songs. The chorus is divine and the riff is beyond brilliant. Deserves a much much higher place, in my opinion. Best breakdown, best bridge... Perhaps their best song. Give it a listen and I bet you won't disagree
Great fusion of raw metal, sludge & doom
Listen to sample

46Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills - Far Beyond Driven
Without a doubt one the Greatest Metal Songs of All Time! I love it to death. This song tells you what its all about, SEX, DRUGS AND HEAVY F***ING METAL!

47Regular People (Conceit) - Vulgar Display of Power
Of all the Pantera songs, and there's a lot of them. This one has the lyrics, the message and the heavy riffs that go in perfect together. If you are a Pantera fan, then you know, the VERY first note of this song invokes what this band is all about.
Listen to sample

48We'll Meet Again - Power Metal
One of the best lead solo ever.. You don't wanna miss this one by Pantera..
