Top Ten Best Mastodon Songs

The Top Ten

Oblivion Oblivion Cover Art

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.

This is a song that you give to anyone who asks you for an introduction to good music! Mastodon have not released a single bad album and picking this over songs like Crack the Skye and Capillarian Crest or Ancient Kingdom or Megalodon is a choice I made purely cause the opening riff is one of the most striking and powerful arpeggios you would ever hear! A 11/10 for the bands discography as a whole

Where are the Emperor Of Sand songs?

Blood and Thunder Blood and Thunder Cover Art

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 favorite guitar riff of all time!
My personal top 10:
8-The Czar
7-Capillarian Crest
6-Aqua Dementia
5-The Last Baron
3-March of the Fire Ants
2-Sleeping Giant
1-Blood and Thunder

My favourite. Heard it first in Need For Speed

Best Mastodon song there is.

The Czar The Czar Cover Art

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.

Oblivion is terribly overrated...this is the song that needs to be at the top of the list not the bland Blood and Thunder which shouldn't be anywhere near the top ten region...My Top 3 would be: 1) The Czar 2) March of the Fire Ants 3) Crack the Skye.

This song is the reason I love metal.

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

The Last Baron The Last Baron Cover Art

You’d think it was Rush on acid with Steve Howe if you have a blindfold on while listening this.

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!

Crack the Skye Crack the Skye Cover Art

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

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!

March of the Fire Ants March of the Fire Ants Cover Art

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.

I feel I belong in the minority section who loved their earlier sludge metal style and raw production much more than their later polished progressive metal output..And this song exceeds the limit of badassery...loved Brian's drum fills towards the end as well as Brent's ntensifying vocals throughout the course of the song was the highlight for me...

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

Divinations Divinations Cover Art

The surf guitar parts, banjo picking, a guitar solo, just mastodon doing what they do best. Just an awesome song!

This song is AWESOME why is it rated so low? What

Ripping track! Monster riff near the end makes me smile

This is an absolute cracker!

Colony of Birchmen Colony of Birchmen Cover Art

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.

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

In your face and eloquent at the same time.

The Motherload The Motherload Cover Art

One of the best songs and lyrics of this band

Has one of the best bridges to a song ever.

When you eat ass and want to be Metal.

It's already here.

Hearts Alive Hearts Alive Cover Art

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

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

Mastodon's finest in the form of an epic crushing song. Simply amazing music which mirrors the ocean in its power and beauty.

Really great song why is it very underrated

The Contenders

Sleeping Giant Sleeping Giant Cover Art

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.

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

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

The riff with the delay is hypnotic.
Can't get it out of my head.

Megalodon Megalodon Cover Art

This song is awesome

The best "headbanging" song of them.

A true mastodon fan would put this song in their top ten. "Five or higher"

Can't believe it's this low on this list.

Dry Bone Valley Dry Bone Valley Cover Art

It was the first Mastodon song I had seen and my brother introduced it to me. At the first place, the video scared me a bit, but now, I love it! Mastodon is one of the most important heavy metal bands!

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

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.

The Wolf is Loose The Wolf is Loose Cover Art

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

Curl of the Burl Curl of the Burl Cover Art

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!

Black Tongue Black Tongue Cover Art

Awesome song, should be in the top 5!

I burned out my eyes, I cut out my tongue should be in the top ten better than curl of the burl

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

Sick song! I love it!


That opening riff is just amazing. Sets the tone for a trudging behemoth of a track. So good.

Cool drumming

Blasteroid Blasteroid Cover Art

Voting for this because it's pretty underrated. The Hunter gets overlooked all the time because it's too catchy and fun for Mastodon. What's wrong with fun in metal?

This song gets very intense, very quickly. And that's why I love it

Cut You Up With a Linoleum Knife Cut You Up With a Linoleum Knife Cover Art
The Sparrow The Sparrow Cover Art

This song makes me feel like I'm in a cloud... I absolutely love it

Absolutely beautiful song. These guys are geniuses

Worlds best music is this...

Stargasm Stargasm Cover Art

This song's so good, especially near the end.

We Built This Come Death We Built This Come Death Cover Art
Iron Tusk Iron Tusk Cover Art

Iron tusk was definitely better then then this the first time through, but the reduced repetition of the same main riff helped make this one more enjoyable the 50th time through. But it definitely has weird parts so it makes sense why it's not top ten.

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.

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

Really love the moody chorus by Brann here! And those riffs are killer!

My favourite track of OMRTS, has a really distinct opening riff and great soloing section at the end!
