The Contenders: Page 2

21 Tempest

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 riff after intro will explain everything about the song

Watch out the guitar riff b4 the chorus

Definitely the number 1 song of deftones.the start of song is amazing

22 Engine No. 9

one of their heaviest songs amazing

This list is all wrong, we need Engine no,9, Root, Headup and 976- EVIL in the top ten.

This is the definition of nu-metal

23 Back to School (Mini Maggit)

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.

Ok, what. Back to school is definitely one Deftones' top 10 best songs. In fact, its most likely one of their top 5 greatest songs. WHY IS IT SO DAMN LOW ON THIS LIST?

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 cool song. It's one of Deftones' best to be honest. Top 10, No, TOP 5. At least

24 You've Seen the Butcher

What a song man, the most subtle sexually explicit song ever. The video is destined to make you orgasm. Hear it all the time. Lyrics make so much sense and its bound to make you feel good.

First HD music video I ever bought. Otherworldly sensuality is all I can think of when I hear it.

This song should be number one

The best

25 Root

One of the sickest riffs created by the greats.

26 Mein

Honestly incredible and I love that Serj is featured. Completely underrated song should be in the top 10

My two favourite vocalists in a song together, couldn't get any better. It's so soothing

27 Cmnd/Ctrl

I was so surprised to see this hadn't already been added to the list. Easily one of the coolest jams off Diamond Eyes, love the way Chino screams. It is like a chilled out version of Headup to me, which is my all time favorite.

28 Rosemary

This song is just so amazing. It's like a journey through Chino's mind, the way the song flows through emotions. Kind of like a ballad, but so much better. Just, the ending lines "Just stay with me" so beautiful and then the heavy guitar crunch followed by notes of tranquility. It's like a nuclear bomb and then the resulting fallout. My favorite song is Passenger, but Rosemary deserves Top Ten.

Amazing song! Really puts you into a feeling you can't really explain just a purely awesome song! One of there best!

This is a true, complete, everything that deftones are all about encapsulated all in one song. There very best song.

I think Rosemary is one the greatest songs ever written.

Chino's best screaming. One of their heaviest tracks to date.

Should be a lot higher, one of my favorites!

The tension arc in the heavy bridge/second part of the song is the most exciting and melodic moment in Deftones discography!

The essential heavy deftones song

30 Beauty School

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.

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!

Can't stop listening

Easily the best song from the Deftones album and wasn't even rated?

Sigh.. Korea above this? Seriously?

32 Minus Blindfold

Some of these songs on Adrenaline as so underrated!

33 Lhabia

Not sure if should be nr. 1 but that creepy mumbling rap does something to me... Real great song, should be WAY higher

Easily should be in the top 15. Change in the house of flies only climed up because it's their most popular song. This song has everything, good lyrics and heavy and almost satanic black metal shrieks like in fireal.

This was the skng that got me into Deftones. So catchy yet so original and deep and just so good

34 976-Evil

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!

35 Doomed User
36 Lucky You
37 Rx Queen

This song is dark and melodic at the same time and produces a sound like no other that just can't be fully explained, it really tells a story and can be interpreted in quite a few different ways. This song is definitely underrated and should totally be more well known.

Come on how is this so low? At least in the top 20.

One of the best on their best album

Dun dun dun dun dun... I won't stop following youu

38 Mascara

Really does put you into some sort of dark trance, does something that no other song can and sounds like nothing else you've ever heard

Don't know how this song can be so low on this list, it has a dark atmosphere and the riffs are amazing, underrated for sure

The beginning of this song is pure genius and this song is definitely underrated check it out

Fantastic song. Has an atmosphere unlike any other deftones song
