Top Ten Greatest War Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 War Ensemble - Slayer War Ensemble - Slayer

Definitely should be a little higher. This song talks about how politicians se war as a kind of game, sort of like "Masters of War" by Bob Dylan, but the lyrics "Sport the war! War support! The sport is war, total war, where victory's really massacre/survival..." really do protest the brutality of warfare in general and how we don't seem to care about soldiers dying in battle.

22 Paschendale - Iron Maiden Paschendale - Iron Maiden
23 In The Army Now - Status Quo In The Army Now - Status Quo

One of the most underrated songs of all time!

24 Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth V 1 Comment
25 Child In Time - Deep Purple Child In Time - Deep Purple
26 Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

This is a great song, and formidable in my family as the Crowner of the Most Epic Guitar Hero Player! So great, yet so impossible to play... ;-(

27 Aces High - Iron Maiden Aces High - Iron Maiden
28 Glory to the Brave - Hammerfall Glory to the Brave - Hammerfall
29 Gears of War - Megadeth Gears of War - Megadeth
30 21 Guns - Green Day 21 Guns - Green Day

No is the Best, but is a great song

31 Indestructible - Disturbed Indestructible - Disturbed

This song deserves to at least be in the top 10 Evan the top 5. Such a shame people don't recognize great music!

This song should be at the top of the list, and it wasn't even on it period! What a shame. "i'm an indestructable master of WAR! " come on it doesn't get any better than this...

32 Eyes of the Insane - Slayer Eyes of the Insane - Slayer
33 Paint It Black - Rolling Stones Paint It Black - Rolling Stones
34 The Mercenary - Iron Maiden

JUST LISTEN THE LYRICS!

35 Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival V 2 Comments
36 The Day That Never Comes - Metallica The Day That Never Comes - Metallica

Awesome, I think it's actually better than One. This song took me by shock when I first heard it. If this was on... And Justice and One was on Death Magnetic I reckon they would swap places on the list.

One my my favourite metallica songs from the awesome album Death Magnetic, The video for this is just pure epic!, if you havnt heard it YOU SHOULD! - dragon13304

37 Soldier Side - System of a Down Soldier Side - System of a Down

This is one of the only songs that clearly depicts the sadness of war. This song puts me on the verge of tears. - Potato1029
