Best Industrial Songs of All TimeTreCoolness 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
That's gothic metal
Such an amazing song. Should definitely be in at least the top 5 - ComaWhite21
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..
This is the only song on the list that qualifies. Marilyn manson is NOT industrial. NEVER has been, NEVER will be. 'it' is nothing more than a cheap sellout, similar to what the cure became.V 4 Comments
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
While I am a massive Manson/NIN fan, Rammstein have the perfect industrial sound in my opinion. Perfect balance of metal and electronica.V 11 Comments
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.
Very underrated. They had a lot of just straight up new industrial songs. They had more than just one good hit. Great band, great singer, and they can actually perform live!V 17 Comments
When you say "rock is dead" but you're a rockstar.-DarkBoi-X
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.V 4 Comments
Perfect song for an AMV.
This song beats the cober. It is so emotional and dramatic, the guitar is killer.
The song that led to Johnny Cash's amazing cover of it.
This needs to be number 3.
Great song with srtong meaning
I especially like the ghost sound effects in the background.
Not in top ten... weird
Easily one of Reznor's best.
This should be their signature song.
Much better than Manson. EPIC song of one of the gratest Industrial Metal band
A lot of people think that this is a song about partying, drugs, and sex. But it's really a song that's against partying, drugs, and sex.
It's everything industrial should be. it has groove, percussion perfection and great lyrical content. Tim Skold... enough said. -
KMFDM are INCREDIBLE. everything they do is just insanity... this song is so groovy. - TreCoolness
Not even close to the best KMFDM song... But close enough
Love this song
This song deserves better the 2%, COME ON PEOPLE this is one of the best industrial songs ever! How can you not vote for this? You people make me sick
That's why I say hey man nice shot. What a good shot man. Vote this song up now!
My Toplist of Blue stahli:
4. Not over til we say so
7. The fall
8. Never dance again
9. Down in flames
10. Ready aim fire
I love the guitar riff! Amazing song by Rammstein. - Userguy44
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. -
What's funny what's funny a aa a a aa
This song is a really fun song. MSI are a very upbeat industrial punk band, if you haven't heard them before just do it! -
One of my favorite songs ever!
This band and song is very amazing, just feel the song will break the language barrier so much excitement and emotions and feeling into this song I really love this band and the album and the band themselves I cannot wait for their next album! LONG LIVE AKADO!
I can't give any comments on the lyrics for this explosive song since Akado is a Russian band but anywho. This song is simply unbelievable, please ignore the Russian bit and just listen to it. Words can't explain how incredible it is. -
This song should be much higher
Greatest song ever by one of the greatest bands in this world.
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.
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.
I love this song so much. I have a soft spot for industrial electronica and this song is every reason as to why that is. The singing is very low and I can't work out any of it, I don't know why it's so low but regardless this is a really cool song. -
I don'w know how KMFDM do it. this song has a very different feel to any song you've ever heard. the music is slightly more simple than normal. so where's the brilliance? the lyrics are just... WOW. such a strong message. -
One of their best songs ever, and definitely the best known.
This is their best song-it belongs on the list.
Everybody likes this song
MOLG always wins when compared to a variety of industrial rock bands. Just listen.
