Best Alternative Metal Songs

The Top Ten

1 Freak on a Leash - Korn

So pshycodelych

2 Epic - Faith No More

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

3 Sober - Tool

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

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

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

4 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!

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

This is a good song with catchy lyrics
"When you come home, I'm, ALREADY STONED! " This bit is true for society nowadays

5 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.

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