The Top Ten

1 Blood and Thunder

One of the songs which got me into Metal in the first place! First heard on Need for Speed, this is my all time favorite of theirs!

My favourite. Heard it first in Need For Speed

Best Mastodon song there is.

Need for speed. Mastodon�'s best song

This song really takes me to this other place... Amazing vibe to it. Just great! And the lyrics! I'm at a certain point in my life where I can relate to them every bit, and this song helps me cope with my reality. Mastodon you make my life worth living!

Metal sounds so great with vocals that harmonize, like they were trying to prove they could sound good but won't get off their metal high horse and stop singing like they had a tracheotomy.

How can you not like this song? Everything you want in a metal song... Heavy riffs a melodic touch and a kick ass guitar solo! Off one of the best metal albums of all time in my opinion!

In my first album listening, I've felt that it's the best.

3 The Czar

This is the song that really got me into the band. It's legitimate heavy metal, but it's not obnoxiously loud or fast, and it sets their music apart from mainstream metal.

Mastodon's guitar work at its best! Doesn't get much better then this! Probably Brent Hinds' best solo.

This song is the reason I love metal.

4 The Last Baron

The thing that makes Crack The Skye so beautiful is how each song is a more and more intense experience as it goes, concluding with this masterpiece.

The first time I heard this I knew I'd heard the greatest track I'll hear in my whole life.

Took me a while to get my head around this son, but now I know, I'll probably never hear a better song in my life!

If you're looking for Mastodon's 'epic', this is the one.

5 Crack the Skye

The song defines prog metal to me and it may fall second to Blood and Thunder but it deserves to be in the top 5 - PsychoSandman33

God damn, 10th? This is EASILY the most emotional song out of Mastodon's discography, Scott Kelly's vocals are simply amazing, and it is just plain beautiful.

Most intensely emotional song I've heard by them yet. Scott Kelly's vox are so good!

6 Colony of Birchmen

It sounds beautiful and threatening at the same time.

This forest is growing faster than I can tell. As much as I love Leviathan, Blood Mountain is still my favorite Mastodon album. 'tis excellent. - djh101

One of the best songs I've heard them produce. The way the smokey vocals match the hypnotic riffs is a wonder.

I LOVE the way the song opens - Metalfan2112

7 Sleeping Giant

It's just beautiful and awe inspiring. The general feeling the song possesses just captivates anyone who listens.

This. Song. If someone asks me, "What is Prog-Metal? " I play them this song. Everything from acoustic beauty, to metal chords and gong strokes in the intro, this song is brutal and perfect.

The song has the most incredible atmosphere I have ever heard. It embraces me with such madness

That riff man enough said

8 March of the Fire Ants

Remission is an underrated album. But that's not to say Leviathan and onward doesn't deserve the respect it has. Remission has some kick ass tracks, and this has to be one of the best. Love Mastodon.

Great riff and solo. This is one of very few songs in the WORLD that I just can't get enough of. This is an absolutely skull-crushing song.

Lol Last Baron above this master piece, sure, where are the real Mastodon fans?

It's tough choosing the best Mastodon song, but my vote goes to this song. - 906389

Sick song! I love it!

12 Curl of the Burl

Send this song to someone who hasn't heard the band before to give them what really sums up Mastodon. Heavy, jeering and crazy song.

Great song from the Hunter! Their new album is awesome, os is this song!

This song is about the mixing a from cuting a especial part of a tree which worth a lot of money with the consuming oh meth with the money from the curl of the burl. It's a dificult song to understand but it is awesome

Its The Cuirl Of the Burl Its the way of the World!

13 The Motherload

One of the best songs and lyrics of this band

Has one of the best bridges to a song ever.

14 The Wolf is Loose

The drumming, the guitars, the lyrics, EVERYTHING on this track is just perfect in the most godly ways, possibly the most intense album opening song in the history of music? I think so. Possibly the best song from their hands down best album

I think that this is just a great wrap up of all their styles. Really great work and VERY inspirational riff.

All I can say is wow to this tune. Immense. Best album opener ever? Awesome drums and guitar work.

"As the soldier walks through the crimson tide..." Best song, off easily their best album

The Hunter may not be the most exciting Mastodon album but this is one hell of a track. - bigmike137

This song got me into Mastodon, it's the first one I ever heard and it is absolutely amazing

This song is a masterpiece and I believe it should be in the top 5.

If you grew up in the Mojave Desert you would vote for this. Fits the reality of the deep desert perfectly.

So hard to choose when there isn't a single Mastodon song I straight up don't like. Today I'm feeling hearts alive - BronzeWolf96

A modern medal epic that epitomizes Mastodon's awesome power and storytelling.

great hard intense

Awesome song! Great drums!

This song perfectly displays Mastodon's abilities. Beautiful, thick guitar riff, amazing drums, and some of the most intense yet wonderful vocals Mastodon ever produced.

What a stand out killer track from mastodon superb display of drums with terrific vocals.

Sludgy and intense. Song that got me into the band thanks to Tony Hawk's American Wasteland on the original Xbox.
