The Top Ten

1 Freak on a Leash - Korn Freak on a Leash - Korn Cover Art

System of a Down fan, but Freak on a Leash is one of the best and most badass songs ever written.

Great song! I love Korn... I highly recommend Limp Bizkits "Break Stuff" as well.

Best best and best

2 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down Cover Art

What is wrong here. There should be like 3-4 songs of System of a Down in the top 10

This song surely deserves to top the list.
No competition to Chop Suey.

3 Prison Song - System of a Down Prison Song - System of a Down Cover Art

5 Home - Three Days Grace Home - Three Days Grace Cover Art

Strange that this is number 4 on this list while it's number 8 or 9 on TheTopTens list of top 10 Three Days Grace songs. Go visit that page and vote for Home. This song is awesome. And also, vote for Chevelle on other lists for goodness sakes

Beats every song here! Just listen to the sample you will be shocked of its power. This house is not a home, I think I'm better of alone!

Love this song...I'm a bit shocked no breaking benjamin songs are here though...personally I think they're the best alt. Metal band ever

Yes I totally agree with this choice. Its hands down #1 song of all the songs here! Three Days Grace for ever!

6 Sober - Tool Sober - Tool Cover Art

One of the best songs ever including metal, rock, alternative metal whatever, out-weights all the other bands. Maynard is such a good singer/songwriter.

Dudes this song had revolutionised the altername metal genre. Maynard's voice is just amazing in this song.

One of the best songs of all time and best bands of all time at 20? Laugh out loud! Whatta bunch of nincompoops!

This is the song which had revolutionized the alternate metal gernre.

I'm not a fan of metal and I don't like rap, but after 4 or 5 times listening this song (rap metal with funk influences) you will understand that is is a masterpiece.
No matter if you you like Vivaldi or Banco or Stevie Wonder or Cesaria Evora or Coltrane... take your time to discover this complex gem.

One of the only songs on this list that brings meaningful contemporary social commentary to the table.

Oh, my god, that makes me rock!
