Best Alternative Metal Songs

The Top Ten Best Alternative Metal Songs

1 Freak on a Leash - Korn

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

Best best and best

This is nu metal!

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

2 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

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.

Good song. - Userguy44

3 Prison Song - System of a Down

I wish this band will have more and more songs like this, all their songs are petfectly good! System of a Down Rocks! Keep Going, wish to see you in Armenia!

System of a Down - the way better!

4 Epic - Faith No More

I think it can't be in the top of the list

This song is awesome! - Userguy44

5 Sober - Tool

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.

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

Number 1 Only thing can I say...

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

6 Home - Three Days Grace

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!

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

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

This song is far better than all the songs on the top of this, there's no way it should be this below

7 In the End - Linkin Park

One of the best songs with awesome lyrics. Why this is not at 1st place

First place

#37 r u kidding me - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

8 Hey Man, Nice Shot - Filter

This is a great Alternative Metal song. - Soulstealer

9 Breath - Breaking Benjamin

You take the breath right out of me man. This song should be the first and three days grace must be at the second.

THis song is so awesome... I love it so much - adriandepayso

The first song I heard by them and definitely one of the best songs I've ever listened to.

One of the best songs ever!

10 Duality - Slipknot

This ain't the best alternative metal song this is the best song ever written. SlipknoT are geniuses. Maggot 4 life.

This is their anthem on their shows, everybody sings along and it gives me shivers every time! Once a Maggot, always a Maggot!

Best alternative metal song ever

The Contenders

11 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

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

Oh, my god, that makes me rock!

12 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

This is in my opinion, the best SOAD song. It's just the best alternative metal song. - rock2metal

13 Them Bones - Alice in Chains
14 Opiate - Tool
15 Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) - Deftones

Should be above those turds called Slipknot and Korn

Pretty cool. I love deftones.

16 Unsung - Helmet
17 Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park
18 Let Go - Red
19 Death Blooms - Mudvayne

21 Amaranthine - Amaranthe
22 Cult of Personality - Living Colour

This song is a little more funky but it's an amazing song that speaks from the mind of a megalomaniac

32 Points of Authority - Linkin Park

This is Nu-Metal, not alternative metal. Still a great song.

33 Ties That Bind - Alter Bridge

It's just a really awesome song.

34 My Name is Mud - Primus
35 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

Best song with fastest guitar solo

Nothing could say about this song

This is A7X’s top song and while I feel that it should be higher it may not get first place. I would have expected it to be in at least the 20s

A7X shouldn't be at 25. Seriously...

36 Bring Me to Life - Evanescene

Best song in the history of life.

This song is addictive like smoking weed! The lyrics can't get out of my head...

Love the memes - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

You need to listen to this!

37 To Return - Chevelle

My favorite song of all time
this song is all harmony of metal and silence
the melody fits perfectly to the words
if anyone would try to compare all best alternative metal songs this is the best of all TIMES!

The best band ever

Not my favorite Chevelle song but gotta vote Chevelle because they are the best band to ever exist. I own over 65 of their songs. If u don’t know this band check them out.
