Top 10 Best Deftones SongsThe best songs from one of the pioneering nu-metal bands.
This may not be the most appreciated Deftones song but I personally think it is definitely a masterpiece with many elements including Alt Metal, Rock, Streamlining and they even mix it together! It would be unfair to pass up the opportunity not to vote for a good quality song like this one.
A land of an escaping depression. Seriously, this song is too awesome and its one of my favorite songs of all time. Or maybe it is
I know it's a lame choice to vote for their most popular song, but I genuinely believe this is the best song by them because it's accessible, whispering, howling, and wonderfully atmospheric. The structure is also not too repetitive. The lyrics are also highly memorable unlike most Deftones tracks. Best track.
I'm listening to this song right now because it's the only one I know, plus it's in the movie coolers revenge, so it is amazing all by itself, plus the fact that this is a song that is a bit tricky on guitar, so it is my favorite, no doubt.
It is incredible that this song appears as an official part of the Matrix 1999 soundtrack but I still don't know in which scene or part of the post credits it comes out, even so I feel that it is the best Deftones song because it handles screamo very well and at the same time mixing Rap Metal or Nu Metal, it is simply a song worth listening to every day!
Sometimes I prefer Deftones songs with screams included, like this one. Sincerely I think Change is good but nothing relevant to be compared to my Own Summer, both are songs with very different tones and this should be the winner!
I think this song it's out of this meaning, sometimes it's hard to comprehend a loud screamo song, but this song it's the exception. The chords are darker than in the Passenger song, probably the most succesful hit that Deftones has ever invented, and also one of the most unique sci-fi songs ever, that's why it was included in Matrix (the movie)
Digital Bath number 2 all above this masterpiece... Are you serious? This is the song that really and better deserves the number 1 or 2 possition, it's great timeless masterpiece!
With some artists, it can be difficult to find a single track that encompasses their entire sound. For Deftones, Digital Bath is that track. Sure, Deftones' catelog is much more dynamically diverse than what you find in Digital Bath, but it all culminates in the best song from their best album to date. It is an emotional roller coaster but lyrically and musically. Not an easy achievement.
I never thought I would enjoy a song that happens to be about electrocuting a girl in a bathtub but here I am wrong.
Despite the theme, the music of this song is beautiful and even sad too. Both the music and the vocals make it sound like it's about some sort of tragedy.
The emotion on this song is just amazing... I always like the heavy Deftones songs but there is something about this song that is mysterious and haunting and yet relaxing...
Easily the best Deftones song ever. The only thing that couldve made it better is if Maynard James Keenan was a part of it like her did with "Passenger" which should be number 2
I know it will sound stupid but sometimes I think that '' Change '' is not that good compared to this song or some others included, but the truth is that both are good songs, although I feel more relaxation and personal satisfaction when I remember that there is one. song about driving and which has very Shoe Gaze elements well arranged defining well the lyrics and the art that it tries to demonstrate, I also want to add those guitars that are so churning but at the same time great and hard to forget, because they stay in your head for a good weather.
I still don't believe that Change really won the gold medal on this list, Be Quiet And Drive is better without a doubt, the distorted Shoe Gazing guitars make the song even more epic, something that Change does not have! Also, the very idea of â€‹â€‹having to read a somewhat basic but very catchy letter relaxes me ...
In my opinion, the best Deftones song. There is so much raw energy and emotion on this song, and the heavy guitar and screaming vocals will keep this song in your head for a long time.
The best song off of Around The Fur and perhaps Deftones' best song of their early years, even though it's my personal favorite Deftones' song of all time. One of my favorite riffs ever.
Who doesn't really likes ''Diamond Eyes'' ...I mean, it may sound as a repetitive song but is in fact a nice catchy song with one of the best chords by Deftones.
This is the first song I ever heard outside of rap in high school, which acted as a gateway, leading to many other great songs of theirs and that of many, many other bands. I've always been extremely grateful for stumbling upon this song years since. This will always be one of their best, whether out of sentiment or not.
Love The guitar hear, and the lyrics... Amazing, my favorite, White Pony is a great album, but this is better, and where is You've Seen The Butcher? , Other Incredible...
"Time will see us realign. Diamonds rain across the sky. And shower me into the same realm... " What a great song! Definitely one of their best!
What a song. The dueling vocals between Chino Moreno and Maynard James Keenan work so good together. The lyrics are very dark, creating this awe striking atmosphere. Stephen Carpenter and Moreno are excellent on guitar and rhythm guitar, respectively. Abe Cunningham's drumming hits very hard. The song just comes together so well. The ending is a bit abrupt but that is merely a nitpick. This is, in my opinion, the best song Deftones have ever made.
This song is absolute perfection, as is all of White Pony. It's one of my favorite songs of all time. Maynard and Chino's vocals flow perfectly together. Musically this song is genius. Chino is an absolute genius with his lyrics and that's as evident as ever in this song. From the atmospheric intro to the abrasive choruses, this song is Deftones through and through.
This songs has you hooked since the start. The lyrics may sound a little weird at first, but they become dark once you get into the song. Maynard and Chino are a perfect combination and they both give the song a sound of perfection, just as the entire White Pony album. For me, this song must be listen by anyone who adores atmospheric, strong, and shocking music.
Tool and Deftones are both some of the best bands in the genre of Alternative Metal(My favourite music genre of all time) so when Deftones get Maynard James Keenan from Tool on here, you know the song is gonna be great.
Sweet song, the details of the song tell a fantastic lie of wish, passion, love and everything else that put in function a dedicated song to a girl. This song is fantastic
What in the name of Minerva this is doing at number 8? This piece of art screams the kind of sensuality that won't attract unwanted public staring!
Every time I listen this song it makes me smile. I absolutely love this song. One of my personal all time favorites and should be #1!
It is a very explosive, in your face song. You think it's going to be calm, then bam. Surprise.
The raw youth and anxiety tone to this song helps me relieve the days I first listened to this song! BEST SONG!
Not a big fan of deftones but will say that this songs is truly amazing!
Definitely my favourite by Deftones, should certainly be higher.
Great tune... Well put together... Awesome!
This song doesn't needs decency, this is just another epic song with raw vocals and extreme guitars.
Awesome song all around starts off with a buzzing guitar riff then that sick bass line R.I.P. chi cheng
Should be much higher
I love this guitar sound
I can't decide between this and Change. Both are fantastic songs and also the best of Deftones.
Not an agressive song, and least sensual. This song it's just great and awesome!
This song is Almost a Top contender to me is absolute greatess!
Best song from Diamond Eyes easily.
"Ooh, I can float here forever
In this room
we can't touch the floor " - yea pretty much how I feel when I listen to this song. No other song I know makes me feel as weightless and free as knife party. And when Rodleen starts to sing...the song is hauntingly beautiful like something out of this world yet its also like the epitome of human expression all the same.
I think the only reason this song is so low is due to people not knowing about it. Best song ever by deftones. I get chills every time.
Best song, or at least the most underrated. Just listen to it, and come back singing "In this room, we're all anemic; in this room, anemic and sweet.."
Deserves to be way higher on the list. Simply a masterpiece, with chilling vocals.
The most underrated and perfectly heaviest song of all Deftones songs. The guitar tone alone which resambles the tone from Meshuggah's album Koloss is the heaviest of all of their works. The rhythm and the riff from start to end is what a complete song of this genre would be apart from its heaviness and its beauty.
All time favourite Deftones song. Always makes me think of my car!
Hands down the best song on koi no yokan!
It has a beautiful ambient flow that makes the song seem like you falling
Best song on the koi no yoken album and that is saying a lot. Koi no yoken is an amazing album and there is not a single bag song on it. No song on it you say "eh I kinda like this song"... What you really say is "ok that song is the best on the album next song... No this song is the best on the album". Most deftones fans will probally hate me for this but imma say it... Koi no yoken is the best deftones album period.
This song is quite fresh but it has the potential to be a 'tones classic. I can listen to this track all day and never get bored, it fuses so much melody, emotion and and anger together. Just give it a listen
WHY IS THIS AT 100?! Yeah it isn't as catchy and dynamic and heavy but it just hits me so hard and makes me feel deep emotion that no other song, apart from be quiet and drive, can do *-*
This song gets all the feels without breaking a sweat. The fact that it's number 100 makes me question the depth of deftones fans.
This song is actually really good.
This list is all wrong, we need Engine no,9, Root, Headup and 976- EVIL in the top ten.
Agree, this their best song dudes!
A travesty that this is number 20...
Belongs in top 10
Ordinary Deftones fans may not know about this songs because my own summer (shove it) and be quiet and drive (far away) outshine it. The lyrics are angry and an alternative to Chino's normal singing voice. And the guitar riffs are just art. ðŸ‘Œ A perfect choice for anyone who votes this song and if you have not heard this song I suggest you listen to the sample. You will not be disappointed.
Easily my favorite 'Tones Song. Sick riff, and so heavy it makes you want to jump up and get angry. My all time favorite song from this band. Max Cavalera being featured is awesome as well. Great song about D-Low. This id one song in my top ten songs ever. The vocals are just great and heavy, you can barely understand what he is saying, which makes it just as bad ass.y favorite from the greats, and also is a damn shame it is such an underground song from them, a real fan knows of this gem though.
And this is coming from a fan of all their work, Adrenaline to now.
Easily the best Deftones track. I love their work with Max of Sepultura and Soulfly on this one too. Easily their most funky as well as their most heavy song. Also includes the best bassline from any song I've ever heard. That outr bassline is almost too perfect. Also that riffðŸ¤¤. Perfect track. Easily in my top 5 songs.
I share the same opinion as the other commenter, it is my all time favourite Deftones song and It deserves to be much higher tnat 46! Massively underrated.
This is a good sounding song, but Chino even said he didn't want it on the album. It's just a shorter, much worse, way less deep version of Pink Maggit that buys into all that teenage angst and the "school sucks" kind of attitude. It was meant to be a big hit, and that's why it's not good. Chino just wanted to prove the record company wrong and he even says he regrets doing so. This is the only song on white pony that isn't perfect. Again, it's not necessarily BAD, it's just not good and has no real meaning other than school sucks and we're all edgy teenagers.
First song I heard from them. The experience was reminiscent of melting into with the music and subsequently falling into depression from not being able to touch the music in any physical or emotional way. Shortly thereafer, I bought the album and came to appreciate the gloriousness of the unconditional love the music provided me.
Along with My Own Summer, Change, Bored, Diamond Eyes, etc. Back to School is truly one of the most awesome pieces from Deftones.
Such a good deftones tune. I'm shocked to see its only number 22...
Outright angry, extremely rough, pure Chino-Scream. This was a great triumph of nu metal. The instrumentation's put into an industrial level. Why this one of all songs made it to the GRAMMYs without any promotion is a mystery that will never be figured out, but oh boy, did this one deserve it.
Don't you dare tell me they weren't nu metal. Nu metal is not derogatory by default. It's only derogatory because Korn and Limp Bizkit exist.
How is this not number one! This won a Grammy in 2001 for best Metal performance. I bet most of you kids weren't even alive at the time.
Slow tempo, but totally reFuses to bore.
Moreno's as mesmerising as usual.
I'd rate it among the top 3, at least.
No words are needed to describe how great this song is. If you just listen to it you will know why it deserves to be in the top 10
The best song ever by deftones.
Most underrated song and the best one
Definitely at least in the top 10!
No 10 now but I'm sure this song will move up the ranks over time, it's one of their newest but definitely the most beautiful song they've ever written and Chino's voice is incredible on it. This and Digital Bath are up there with my favourite songs of all time
For me, this is the best song, because it's really emotive, so beautifull, every time I hear this song I must pick up my guitar and start playing the song, and when Chino start singing I just start singing, almost crying because of the beauty of this song. It should be in N# 1
This is one of the best Deftones song hands down it's the best to listen when you're high on weed you can get into deep euphoria, it's wonderful.
Great song, this was the first song I ever heard of them, and since I've been digging more and more into this band, thank you I love you Jenn.
One of the most beautiful songs I ever listened to. Not only from Deftones, but also from any rock band. Definitely a favourite. It's a shame that not many people know about it besides fans - everyone should.
This is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard! Every time I hear it I have to completely stop what I'm doing and just listen 100%. Such an incredibly beautiful song, and deserves to be so much higher.
Oh god, this song...what should I say? I just can't catch my breath when I listen to this...one of the greatest songs of all time!
One of the best songs from the Diamond Eyes Album! I Can't believe it's not voted higher on this list! Truly a work of art!
This song was stuck in my head for ages. I feel like I can relate to the song somehow, should I be different and maybe make a fool of myself to impress you? Or should I be like everyone else and be safe? Either way I want you to notice me somehow. That's how I interpreted it and I think it relates to a lot of people.
Seems as though th easier listening songs got the top votes. I prefer their heavier sound. I can name a few favourites but the chorus to this is explosive. So much energy in this!
W. T. F. How is this song no. 17? This song should be in the top 5 at least.
The song that made me fall in love with this band.
A dreamy song with awesome lyrics. Definitely one of my favorite songs, cause I'm always getting the chills while hearing it.
Very underrated song - another one of their more melodic songs, which I really like. This song especially.
Wet myself every time I listen it. Beautiful live!
Sat night wrist is so underrated! My favorite album of theirs and I've been a fan since ATF days!
Easily the best song from the Deftones album and wasn't even rated?
Sigh.. Korea above this? Seriously?
Gets me every time
