Best Industrial Songs of All Time

These are easily the best industrial songs of all time, whether it be industrial metal rock or electronica it doesn't really matter here they are.

The Top Ten

1 Guilty - Gravity Kills

An incredible band with a fantastic sound! I got to meet these guys when they got started. I've been a fan since. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't have them playing. While they have a loyal fan base, it would be nice to see the size of that base if they had more airplay. I truly hope they bless us with another album. These guys know who made them famous and for that Gravity Kills gives much respect. They love their fans as much as the fans love them. I truly think of them as my brothers!

A very underrated band, debut album sold almost half-a-millions copies, their first single hit brief mainstream populatrity and toured with officially the Sex Pistols. This is a very good band, and at that time they were considered one of the most promising young bands in the industrial music scene.

This song epitomized the blending of industrial and metal, and paved the way for many other industrial bands to creep into the 90s music scene. But it did it not with a whimper, but an atomic blast.

I recommend you people listen to "Blame" such a beatiful song by Gravity Kills!

2 Feuer Frei - Rammstein

Greatest band to ever walk this earth. The definition of EPIC music, till lindemann is GOD!

BEST BAND EVER! Their song lyrics are dark but yet give you a sense that if you think about those things you aren't the only ones! I don't care if their German its perfect metal with techno!

rammstein for me is the best of industrial metal band! but I think that du hast is the best of their songs, but the both of them are very expressive

I love rammstein and this song but I like wei├čes fleisch even better!

3 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

This song has something. Watch the video. The beat is perfect to have sex! And It becomes more more and more powerfull.

This song is a very powerful addition to Industrial Music all around. It, along with the rest of the album, deals with desire, addiction, and is a purely amazing combination of beats and sounds to make an Industrial anthem.

Closer itself wouldn't work with any other band NIN have such good songs that it's stupid to vote against it even if all the song did was revolutionize the entire media single handedly in the 90's and had such a badass video that MTV won't show it anymore oh huh that kind of is a big del of a song hmm..

Timeless song

4 Coma White - Marilyn Manson

Such an amazing song. Should definitely be in at least the top 5 - ComaWhite21

5 Rock is Dead - Marilyn Manson

Great song. Truly. It's even better than Beautiful People. I'm serious. His best song. WOW! Just WOW! Go Marilyn Manson! WOO!

OK so this song will be debated however here's my reasons. The music is absolutely brilliant. The song has a structural charm. The lyrics are amazing. If you've not heard this song please go out of your way to hear it. -

His music is absolutely amazing, but the man himself, is creepy (when onstage) otherwise, he seems to be pretty intelligent.

Rock is dead. Long live paper and scissors (just kidding! ).

6 Wish - Nine Inch Nails

Perfect song for an AMV.

7 Dragula - Rob Zombie

Much better than Manson. EPIC song of one of the gratest Industrial Metal band

8 Save Yourself - Stabbing Westward

Stabbing Westward got weird with that last album. Anyone who ever saw them in the early days can attest to a great band that seems to have either lost its way or went a direction no one else was willing to follow.

Either way, this is a good song, but 'Haunting Me' was probably better.

9 Headhunter - Front 242

I like the pushing drum beat and the lyrics along with the singing. I think that this song really exemplifies industrial rock especially since this is a pretty unknown, not touched by the mainstream band, unlike other groups such as Nine Inch Nails, even though I do think they make great music I think that they should be behind bands like this.

13 War - :Wumpscut:
14 Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) - Marilyn Manson
15 Great Big White World - Marilyn Manson
16 Ich Bin Ein Auslander - Pop Will Eat Itself
17 Burn - Sister Machine Gun
18 Kooler Than Jesus - My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult
19 (s)AINT - Marilyn Manson

For me the lyrics do it for this song. Manson is one of the smartest lyricists of all time, that wasn't an opinion that was just factual stuff. another thing with this song, the guitar in the chorus is one note... how it's so good and fresh is beyond me. I guess that's just where the Manson brilliance kicks in. -
