No coments, it's a perfect song...

Best groove metal ever.

2 Cowboys from Hell - Pantera

Much better than everything else here. Pantera are much better than anything else here. Also better than Walk by Pantera. Much more Groove. Don't forget Cemetery Gates and New Level and Domination...the list goes on

Why is walk at #1? This song is way better than walk. - cwoodkiter

Should be in no.2

Darrell's guitar riff is amazing so catchy. Together With Phil's raspy vocals makes me actually proud 2 b a Texan. Amazing song

3 Roots Bloody Roots - Sepultura

This is on the top of my list

This is number #1... It's not? - GREYBOYY

Sepu better than Pantera no doubt...this should be number 1.


4 Halo - Machine Head

Flynn has some of the strongest vocals you'll hear in modern Groove/Thrash metal today, the guitars are just so perfectly orchestrated and the song blends all aspects from the intensity, to the calm slowdown, to everything you would want and crave in a groove metal track. - BloodyThunderX

This is simply epic

How can you put (walk) in first place when Machine Head has this epic song?!

Walk is a really good song, but Halo is a great masterpiece in the metal of the last years

5 Redneck - Lamb of God

This is the best song you will ever not be able to understand half the lyrics on, it has an unbelievable mix of raw power and cutting edge technical playing.

Probably one of my favorite' groove song I've ever heard...

No Chris Adler, no groove

The instumentals in this song cannot be produced by anyother band

6 Laid to Rest - Lamb of God

Redneck is an awesome song but Laid to Rest is LOG's best work so far.

Lamb of god yg terbaik

7 Walk with Me in Hell - Lamb of God

This song is one of my favourite Lamb Of God songs, next to Dead Seeds, Ghost Walking, Black Label and King Me. It has very high potential to be at the number 1 spot... So keep voting for it!

Yaar what the hell it is doing here below... The songs makes me flow.. And move with the guitar.. Randy has awesome vocals.. And this song gives pumping.. Rest of all I don't know but this is my favorite...

This should be next to redneck... Randy's voice flows like electric current.

I respect Pantera, but I like LoG better...

8 Flying Whales - Gojira

I agree with all the Pantera and Lamb of God as they are two of my favourite bands of all time.

Gojira are definitely one of the heaviest and grooviest bands out in the world right now! I think this song definitely deserves to be in the top ten! M/

9 5 Minutes Alone - Pantera

This should be number 1.. This song is groove metal in it's truest sense.

God the main riff is so grovy

10 Prophecy - Soulfly

Max Cavalera is a genius!

The Contenders

11 Cemetary Gates - Pantera

First Groove balland

12 Pray for Villains - Devildriver
13 Super Charger Heaven - White Zombie
14 Bulletproof - Five Finger Death Punch

Love ffdp

15 What I've Become - Lamb of God

I only heard this song for the first time a few days ago and it's now one of my favourites because of the drums and palm muted riff. I love Redneck but this song is groovier!

My friend suggested me to vote this song, may be because it is his favorite. I think It's awesome. What can I say more I don't know.
But the system is not presenting the button to post it.

Its one of the fired up and head banging songs by LOG. It can beat REDNECK from 1st position.

Cowboys from hell is a Thrash Metal song.

16 Imperium - Machine Head

Locust is the best and imperium is second.

Best groove metal song written bar none!

17 Davidian - Machine Head
18 Demanufacture - Fear Factory
19 Clouds Over California - Devildriver

This song has awesome bass, vocals and guitar. It is pure awesomeness. Dez Fafara and DevilDriver are awesome at what they do and forever will be.

20 Never Enough - Five Finger Death Punch
21 Mouth for War - Pantera

You can literally fight the world after hearing this song.

Twenty six is a disgrace guys. I mean those guitar riffs are hard an groovy and they r also addictive. This song's pumps us very well. An it is the real defnition of grooove metal.

22 Half Past Dead - Overkill
23 I'm Broken - Pantera

Easily top a top 5. One of the best songs Pantera ever put out in my opinion

24 Bleed - Soulfly

Soulfly is a groove metal band but this song isn't Groove Metal it's Nu Metal - christangrant

25 Necroshine - Overkill
26 Inside Out - Anthrax
27 Hourglass - Lamb of God

I think Hourglass should at least be in the top 3 man... I mean come on... With those riffs, those drums and of course randy's mind blasting vocals this song surely deserves to be amongst the tops...

28 Set to Fail - Lamb of God

Just the definition of Groove Metal. The other songs are quite ridiculous compared with the porwerfull vocals, riffs and drums in this masterpiece.

29 Fate Stepped In - Devildriver
30 Drag the Waters - Pantera
31 Territory - Sepultura

I agree

32 Bite the Bullet - Machine Head
33 Destroy and Dominate - Chimaira
34 Aesthetics of Hate - Machine Head

This is more thrash than groove...

35 Floods - Pantera
36 A New Level - Pantera

Try not to move any part of your body while listening to this song. (This song is too heavy to take that challenge „/)

37 This Love - Pantera
38 Pride - Damageplan

A great song that is just as good as the stuff Dime and Vinnie did in Pantera - christangrant

Damageplan just shows pantera would have been awful without phil

39 Hate Me - Five Finger Death Punch
40 Old - Machine Head
41 Deathklaat - Six Feet Under
42 Take My Scars - Machine Head
