3 Walk - Vulgar Display Of Power Walk - 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.

I consider this be the first song you listen to this song as your Pantera song. You won't regret it. - 906389

5 Mouth for War - Vulgar Display of Power Mouth 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.

This should be just behind Cemetery Gates.

6 I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven

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

If you are a Pantera fan and you haven't heard this song yet, YOU SHOULD DO SO RIGHT NOW. That being said, I also want to say R.I. P Dimebag. I know almost every metalhead says that, but it really hurts that he's not on this planet anymore.

This song pretty much has the best riff ever.

7 5 Minutes Alone - Far Beyond Driven 5 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!

Its just badass

8 Domination - Cowboys From Hell Domination - 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...

The solo is crazy, also that breakdown

9 F****** Hostile - Vulgar Display of Power F****** 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.

In only 4 seconds you feel the power and rage!

10 Hollow - Vulgar Display of Power Hollow - 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 - djperth

Best Pantera song by far. A mix of everything, Anselmo really put everything in this one. Really touching lyrics

11 This Love - Vulgar Display Of Power This 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.

Amazing' drumbeat startin' from low to high which makes the head bangers party go crazy like hell...

It contrasts from quiet to full on groove metal. YOU KEEP THIS LOVE! - gemcloben

The live album version of this song is the best live song ever! - heavymetalrocker777

13 Revolution Is My Name - Reinventing The Steel Revolution 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/

The breakdown solo just has the perfect combo of screaming guitar and thunderous bass.

14 The Sleep - Cowboys from Hell The 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

Should be top 10 at least

15 Psycho Holiday - Cowboys From Hell Psycho Holiday - Cowboys From Hell

Awesome opening and continuing riff. The vocals work really well with the groove and flow. An easily overlooked song

Definitely had to be in the top 10, it was so chilling the first time I heard that chorus

Why is Psycho Holiday so low on the list?

A VERY underrated song - gemcloben

16 A New Level - Vulgar Display Of Power A 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.

Might not be the best Pantera song, but definitely one of there heaviest, and that's why I like it

17 Slaughtered - Far Beyond Driven Slaughtered - 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

Because it's their heaviest/hardest song!

19 Suicide Note Pt. II - The Great Southern Trendkill Suicide Note Pt. II - The Great Southern Trendkill

Live and learn, rape and turn... The guitar, these pitches, the vocals a anthem to break your neck.

20 Primal Concrete Sledge - Cowboys From Hell Primal 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

An amazing song, and even more amazing when performed live - walkingstone
