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

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

Great Song. But Three Days Grace Have Sung Better Songs. Like On My Own.

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.

6 Opiate - Tool
7 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

I love this song

8 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.
