Top Ten Songs To Headbang To

Just a list for all the most brutal songs to get whiplash to.

The Top TenXW

1Raining Blood - Slayer

The first time I heard this song, I was just listening to the creepy rain effects, and then the awesome riff, and then I all of a sudden just started to violently headbang!

Seriously my FAVOURITE song to headbang to.
Adrenaline rush

Never listen to this song in class or people will give you weird looks for unknowing throwing your books around the room during the tremolo riff

This song gave me whiplash, that is all

4People = S*** - Slipknot

This and The Blister Exists are the best out there to headbang, but instead of In Waves from Trivium, Put Throes Of Perdition (of Trivium too)

Just want to bang my head... And I'm not even a big fan of these guys

Makes want to jump around and beat someone up. Warning

Nothing can beat this

5It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon

I loved Bring Me The Horizon and never another Band, Amazing!

6Chop Suey! - System of a Down

"Wake up,
Grab a brush and put a little (makeup),
Grab a brush and put a little,
Hide the scars to fade away the (shakeup)
Hide the scars to fade away the,
Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?
Here you go create another fable"

One of the best modern metal bands and one of the best metal songs ever. Lets be serious whether or not you heard of this song or band before ull definitely feel a whiplash on your neck after listening to this. Plus the guitar riff in the beginning is one of the best ever -- a work of art. What the song is about, probably something political like all their other songs but who cares about that. Song hardcore stuff any rocker will and probably does love.

this song is always a club favourite!, back down Hip Hop.. its mosh time!

System of a Down 3 ♥♥♥♥♥♥

The Newcomers

?Sick Like Me - In This Moment

The Contenders

11Prison Song - System of a Down

This song caused me to have a sore neck the next day after a System of a Down gig Needles by System of a Down is another good song to headbang to.

This song is not the best but it is one of the best and it is the sickest song I've ever heard. - moose4life19

Great intro, Great Lyrics, Great Band, Great rhythm to break your neck to. - M3ta1G3ar501id

12Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine
13Seek and Destroy - Metallica
14Energize Me - After Forever

Floor Jansen. 'enough said.

15The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth
16Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold

An epic song, mosh or safety-headbang allowed


17Black Label - Lamb of God

I don't know what this song is doing on 10. It should be 1. Not only does it make you headbang but it starts pits and walls of death and that's like the highest peak in a metal concert.

If you like heavy metal and goin to concerts. I highly urge you to go see Lamb of God. - M3ta1G3ar501id

Probably the most brutal one from lamb of God... It should be in at least top three

18Rein raus - Rammstein

Rammstein is german and one of the best metal bands out there. I highly suggest getting into them. - M3ta1G3ar501id

19Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace

this is the best song eva! I headbang to this ALL the time... I wish I had it on CD but it is on my brother's video game so I just steal that and listen to that song! love ya Three Days Grace - eminems_718

Woah #7? What's up with this? Usually there's just the chorus to headbang to, but just the very first notes is head-bang worthy! 3DG!

20Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue


You cannot EVER even begin to reach the ultimate levels of totally AWESOME that this song reaches. Get wasted with a bunch of strippers, start this song, then dial in max volume plus 5... and prepare to ROCK.

The first hair metal band that was badass and they sure as hell kicked ass - M3ta1G3ar501id

Killer song! Long live the Crue!
