R.I.P. Dimebag Darrell


lyrics from hell... as the pantera fan you will never regret

Simply amazing. I always get the chills whenever I listen to it, but those of the good kind.
[Newest]Your day best painters!

2Cowboys From Hell - Cowboys From Hell
Dimebag... Amazing guitar riffs and solo... Pantera rules... Simply a masterpiece... Simply awesome...
first song I heard by pantera and the best!
Simply amazing. Unique, hard, and badass.
[Newest]Always been my favorite pantera song and pretty much favorite overall song. Truly great.

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.
[Newest]Awesome track and the best of pantera

4Floods - The Great Southern Trendkill
Single most amazing solo that has ever graced my ears

R.I.P. dime

R.I.P... long live the king
Just Amazing on that Solo great techniques and And R.I. P Dimebag Darrell, you inspired me to the guitar and I thank you, your music will live for ever-FLOODS
[Newest]I think this might be my favorite song of all time.

5I'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
[Newest]Dime is great and so are the screams


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.


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!
[Newest]I need 5 minutes alone to listen to this one.

7Mouth 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.
[Newest]So glad this song is the first song to play on the Vulgar Display of Power album. It gets me so pumped whenever I listen to it

8Domination - 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...
[Newest]Live in Moscow, love it!

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.
In only 4 seconds you feel the power and rage!

10Hollow - 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


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


[Newest]Should be number 1 amazing song

The Contenders

11This 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!


12Drag the Waters - The Great Southern Trendkill
Killer song through and through! Best off of the southern trendkill album classic pantera!
Drag the waters is a underrated song isn't it just listen to the lyrics top 5

13Revolution 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/
[Newest]Badass song its heavy grunge filled and scream filled but its gotta be 5

14A 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.
Might not be the best Pantera song, but definitely one of there heaviest, and that's why I like it

15Psycho 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
A VERY underrated song


16The 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!


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
[Newest]Very Underrated song nice acoustic intro into some bad ass riffs then to one of Dimebag's best solos. He makes that guitar cry

17Slaughtered - 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

18Primal 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

19The Art of Shredding - Cowboys From Hell
Are you kidding me? I just don't get it why people don't like this song, I know it's not walk or cowboys from hell but this is at least top ten
2:40 one of the best riffs.

20Rise - Vulgar Display of Power
Great rhythms and groovy riffing!
Definitely one of the more underrated tracks they've ever played. Especially once you hear that solo, tell me that it isn't one of the most kickass things ever.
