Best Fear Factory Songs


The Top Ten

1 Shock

One thing any good album needs to do is to hook you right away with the very first song you hear off the album. "Shock" absolutely nails this to a tee. Powerful, straight-forward, and one of the go-to songs for leading a battle, "Shock" not only comes off as one of the tracks that would DEFINE Fear Factory during their unstoppable force in the late 90's, but it stands the test of time well enough to the point I'd argue its one of the best songs in the industrial metal genre. - BloodyThunderX

This must be the best creation of the band... Love it

No doubt...1st song I ever heard from them, been hooked every since.

2 Replica

Shock is good don't get me wrong but it isn't greater than Replica or Demanufacture. - ThePierrasse

I first heard this song in 1995 and it's an awesome song

Awesome drums at the beginning and the ultimate Roadrunner anthem truly kickass

First song I heard from a band and remind me so good real nu/ alternative metal times I Think This is the FF totality song. They've got so many great songs should be top one (Archetype, Powershifter, Demanufacture, Self Bias Resistor, Linchpin, or Edgecrusher) and no one got powerful guitars like them but replica is must hear from a band.

3 Demanufacture

In my opinion, the definitive fear factory song, a very raw, thick sound, mixed with some electronic parts.

Fear Factory is definitely the 2nd heaviest band ever next to Pantera. This rules.

Break down sections make me feel like I'm flying.

Best song EVER made period.

4 Pisschrist

A powerful song that hasn't been able to be matched even to this day. Still remains as one of my all time favourite Fear Factory songs. The fact that it isn't any higher is a disappointment, but still, it's Fear Factory, so I can't argue against that.

Absolutely amazing album and this song is no different. It blends melody and aggression so well which is what I love Fear Factory for! Another great track is Demanufacture - PsychoSandman33

The entire album is their best, but this song is really powerful. This song by far is the best Fear Factory has ever done.

The best FF song of all time... just. Epic.

5 Fear Campaign

Favourite song on my favourite FF album, MECHANIZE!

6 Linchpin

We see no end to the dream!

How the hell did it get 11 should be 1! Killer song

7 Self Bias Resistor

This song is incredible. All of 'Demanufacture' is, but Dino palm-mutes like no other, and on this one he opens up the power chords and rains hellfire upon the listener mid-track with the biggest industrial breakdowns I've ever heard. Yeah, this track and album are Fear Factory's gold standard.

Pure genius. The growl and melody are complimented perfectly. One of the best bands of all time.

That intro gets me every time. And the ending melodies is mesmerizing.

They have tried to break you!

8 Powershifter

Best pump up song by FF

9 Edgecrusher

The main riff is honestly one of my all-time favorite riffs to mosh too. - cjWriter1997

Killer guitar solo, that is all

10 Zero Signal

This is their most dynamic song and an epic journey from start to finish.

Zero Signal is one of my favorite songs. Period.

Should be Pisschrist at number 1, self bias resistor 2nd and zero signal 3rd. Then resurrection 4th and a struggle between hi-tech hate, timelessness, big god, replica, descent, demanufacture, shock and their version of school for 5th.

This is by far the best Song from FF.
When you hear the intro you now there is something epic about to come.
Than suddenly its just an explosion of hard riffs, the double bass,
And peaks with the unmatched melodic hook.
Simply a Masterpiece.

The Contenders

11 Resurrection

A brilliant progressive song that always has melody and a damn good rocking momentum!.

What a Great Song, so Beautiful, so Immersive!

12 Securitron (Police State 2000)


13 Descent

Lyrics, melody, emotions, energy - it has it all. Just listen the damn intro, gets me hooked every time.

It's got a bit of a grungy sort of sound I think. Probably my favourite by these people, a great song

Something about burtons vocals and riff that is just fear factory

14 Freedom or Fire
15 Archetype

I think this song is not typical for them, I personally don't like this band mostly, but this song really hooked my soul

Of all the top ten lists, this one is the most ridiculous, seriously, this isn't number one? This song is a masterpiece on every front

Best FF song by far

That bass intro cannot be matched for heaviness, it sounds like a jackhammer on steroids!

42 H-K (Hunter-Killer)

The perfect mix of slow riffs followed by fast riffs. I love this song.

Love this song! Aggressively brutal and overwhelmingly melodic! Makes you want to windmill, sing along and cry all at the same time!
