Best Slipknot Songs

The Top Ten Best Slipknot Songs

1 Psychosocial

I don't know anybody who likes slipknot but this song sure rocks for me. EPIC RIFF.

The Best song among the more heavier metal(including Death) songs... It's just EPIC. The Best heaviest Intro ever and the best growl to be ever made with which the song takes off gets even more heavier more Perky... I used to cut the Riffing part of great metal songs put them as my ringtone. But when I heard this, I decided nothing can beat this! Because, NO NEED TO CUT... The Intro does it for you! Love it...

Simply the best, first Slipknot song I've listened to and in my opinion the best one. EPIC

Riff is great, chorus is one of Slipknot's best. Undisputedly one of my favourite songs of all time.

2 Duality


THe best slipknot song ever mad good lyrics drumming bass (RIP Paul)

This list is stupid... Who votes here? Little kids? This is easily number 1. 2nd is Before I Forget, Eyeless or Psychosocial 3rd and 4th and Wait And Bleed 5th.

The drumming bass and lyrics for this song is awesome. It's just plain epic really.

3 Before I Forget

Thanks slipknot, for this amazing song. This is obviously your best work, and that is saying a lot. I know someone who hated Slipknot, but loved this song.

This is one of the best metal songs ever! I absolutely love it!
Stay sic fellow maggots!

Slipknot have made many awesome songs
before I forget was the first to listen so I like it and believe that's the best
theirs best song

Easily the best hard track on Vol 3. Duality is amazing but the chorus to this one is what gets me every time.

4 Wait and Bleed

THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! Its amazing! When I first heard it, I feel inlove with it like instantly! Before I forget is an okay song too! But I just love this one! This and Spit it out, completely awesome. I think before I forget should be like... Three.

What?! song number 4?! this song and spit it out should be tied for number one! I think the song is about coreys suicide attempt and how he stopped before he actually killed himself.

The lyrics are fine, the song isn't. In fact, surprises me to see it this higher.

Amazing to sing along to. One of Corey's most iconic vocals in my opinion.

Legend has it Corey's still waiting and bleeding inside Michelle

5 People = S***

I know you're all thinking about how songs make you feel emotionally, but I couldn't care less. I'm a musician and in this song Slipknot displays some of their best musicianship, which is really what makes the band. Not masks, awards being won, an image, etc.

Great song and screams. The drums in this song are my favorite

This song catches Slipknot at their most honest period. They all hated each other during and it shows in songs like this one. Putting all of that anger into songwriting for a band like Slipknot leads to only one thing... Pure awesomeness, not just in this song but the whole album. This should at least be in the top 5, if not #1.

This song sometimes speaks to me. When I'm at my bad mood I sometimes listen to this

6 Snuff

Its the best song :) Very deep and lots of meaning in it. They couldn't have done better with this song:)
Snuff.. Enough said. :)

it takes a lot of talent for a band to make such a good song in a different genre

This song is very deep and heavy but you can also tell that it was made by a metal band

I cried when I heard this. I went through a very harsh breakup and this helped piece me back together. Not my absolute favorite but
definitely in my top 10.Thank you Slipknot

7 Dead Memories

This is a perfectly well-constructed song, It's slower than the other bangers on the album, kind of like a power ballad actually but it's still awesome nonetheless. This might not be as popular as other songs like Before I Forget, Disasterpiece, Spit It Out or even Psychosocial, but I'm glad it at least made it to the top ten.

I like how here they sound like more mature musicians, you know, from a lyrical and instrumental point of view they really grew as a band. And as much as this album has been hated and bashed through the years, I think it really showcases what these nine guys were capable of doing; They were not your generic nu metal band and they proved themselves here. This is a combination of heavy and experimental tracks, and it is successful in its own way because of that (So much it even topped the charts back in the day, being the first Slipknot album to do so) and probably the most important thing: This is the last album which features all the original members. I'm ...more

Awesome lyrics..
Great music and vocals also!
Song is simply great..
But I think it should be ranked higher :(
In top five at least!

One of the best metal songs ever! Can't stop listening to it! It's mindblowing!

Great song, really accessible, killer guitar and a serious performance from Joey. SLIPKNOT RULE!

8 Spit It Out

Can't quite understand why this isn't in the top 10.
You can feel the adrenaline raging through your body when you listen to this!

Definitely the best should be #1 great vocals, great guitar and sid has a big part in it. And on one of their best albums

This is Slipknot! Great Song!
Maybe the songs above are more melodic and maybe this is not the Slipknot song I would listen to all the time, but when you choose the number one song for a band, you have to choose a song that defines the band. Spit it out would be the one, I think..

Such an intense song with a great chorus and Vocals. Not the best slipknot song, but still great in my opinion

9 Eyeless

this is not only the best songs by slipknot, but also the best metal songs ever composed by any of the bands in the entire universe. just listen to the song and feel why it is the best. the screaming, sick lyric, awesome energy, everything makes the song simply THE BEST! Go sLiPkNot!

One of the best lyrics they have made: 'I am my father's son, cause he's a phantom, a mystery and that leaves me NOTHING!

Sexy track, I masturbate with my ear drums mentally with the music that tickles my insides

The screaming and instruments for this song is absolutely sick.

10 The Devil In I

Melodic, heavy and atmospheric. A perfect single for the upcoming album.5: The Gray Chapter

This by far the best slipknot song amazing riff mick is a genius awesome lyrics love the whole regular singing then start screaming when Corey says come step inside see the devil in I

Voting on this song because I think it deserves a higher spot on this list, this song is awesome.! So Powerful!

I always can't help but headbang every time I listen to this song. It's a great song.

The Contenders

11 Left Behind

This song is actually LEFT BEHIND, it should be in the top 3! What is HAPPENING?! This is trademark Slipknot! Amazing!

Good song not my favorite but in the top 10 really good lyrics
Chorus is good

Best song by slipknot! Psychosocial is good but doesn't deserve number one or even two for that matter same with before I forget that songs too overrated

So much meaning. You can hear Corey's passion through his vocals on this one. He was so angry about being homeless, thus being left behind in society. No other song beats this one.

12 Sulfur

Awesome intro, chorus, solo, and ending. Just listen to it you will see what I mean.

guys actually listen to this song its incredible, you can't beat the drumming at the beginning of this song


The chemistry between the band members is amazing in this song

13 Vermillion

Vermilion isn't even in the top ten?

Are you guys kidding me?

This song is down so low

Agreed vermillion is brilliant and should be in the top ten :(

This song is so in-depth. Even the vocals add to the story. The way Corey Taylor changes his voice from a calm state to a desperate cry absolutely captures the descent into madness that the song's protagonist goes through. Every line in the song can be interpreted differently depending on who is interpreting it, and that's what makes it so beautiful. The fact that the song's message can be different for every listener- depending on what THEY have gone through in the past- insures that this song is relatable to everyone, from the most hardcore maggot to a Justin Bieber fan. Why is this song not in the top ten? There is no answer.

So unique, so great, so intense, just straight up their best song. An extremely special, why is it not in the top 10?

14 (Sic)

Best. Slipknot. Song. "You can't kill me cause I'm already inside you." every time that part comes on followed by the maniacal laughing I go absolutely nuts.

This is one of the most intense songs I have ever listened to. Why this is not One is beyond me. Amazing lyrics, aggressive vocals, and in the end, the vocals just blow you away. Better than psychosocial, maybe tied with duality.

This song was originally called slipknot, this is their signature song!

Are you kidding me slipknot top ten without (sic) being in it? I can't rate which song is their number one but this song should be on the top ten, Pshychosocial, dead memories, and songs like that are good enough but don't deserve a top ten status, come on fellow maggots vote sensibly

15 Disasterpiece

Corey himself said that he is often looking forward to perform this song live, as it amps him up. Between the perfect mix of delicious percussions, bad ass riffs and the violent lyrics, any set of metal crowd hearing this would go nuts!

Most people have experienced bullying before which is why this song might be so relatable. The lyrics describe how you feel towards them and it is such a pissed of song that it gets you hyped every time you listen to it.

Absolute perfection. Ideal balance between early and late Slipknot in this one song. The outro is the key thing that makes this great song a true masterpiece.

If there are ANY maggots on this site, please vote for it, it the BEST! Before I forget and snuff SUCK, they AREN'T slipknot, slipknot is the grindcore/hardcore metal from the first 2 albums, the other 2 are them trying to be progressive rock, VOTE FOR THIS! (all caps VERY NECESSARY)!

16 The Heretic Anthem

How can you say you are a true maggot and not have this song in your top 10? ITs simply amazing and gets your adrenaline pumping! If you're 555 than I'm 666!

I found this song probably their heaviest

As a pure metal fan Iowa is definitely my favorite album and this is a great song, makes me proud of being a metal head

The heaviest Slipknot song this should be one

17 Surfacing

They call it the National Anthem for a reason.

It is one of their best encore tracks, also for a reason.

This was the last song they played at Sonisphere this year! IT WAS AWESOME! R.I. P Paul Gray

Awesome composition! Good Guitar work nice drumming! Nice choice upal! I've loved the song too!

Brilliant song to scream into the ears of society! This is when they made some good music! Before Dead Memories that horrible song

18 All Hope is Gone

This is masterpiece. Simply very best song from slipknot. Such an underrated song

Slipknot isn't popular anymore and one direction is, this is proof that all hope is gone.

People go on YouTube and wotch the videos he's flippin people off that's totally sick

One of my favorites

19 The Negative One

I absolutely love this song when I first got it I listened to it everywhere all the time. One of the heaviest songs they have put out so far. I love the Guitar parts but my favorite is Sid Wilson putting out sounds that sound like they belong in a horror movie. It is chaos at its finest and also the first slipknot song I had. I listen to it before every single footnalll game and it makes me just want to straight up murder someone on the other team.

What, 27... this is from the new album the gray chapter and the devil I is higher on the list. well that's bull I think it's up there in the top ten or at least like fifteen or something. First album Joey jordison isn't in but I'll admit Jay Weinberg can slam some drums in this song. Corey Taylor's voice is amazing and badass lyrics and the fact the he can sing complex words in this song makes it just even more awesome and the intro from Mick Thompson and Jim Root is bad ass and throughout the song the guitar riff is amazing. I'm not gonna lie though none of their songs are better than psychosocial the intro to that was the best guitar riff, drums, everything.

This song should be way higher. Such an awesome song with a great and creepy intro. The Negative One deserves number one.

This just beats psychosocial as the best slipknot song. Amazing tune/beat (whatever you wanna call it) easily their best ever song... So far!

20 'Til We Die

Being the last song I heard from them live just changed my view of slipknot as a whole, this song after an intense moment is just bliss

I love the song because it helps me remember Paul... plus very sad :C

No matter how much I listen to it it never gets old!

Way down on the list, undoubtedly one of the best songs of slipknot. Way better than psychosocial!

21 My Plague

Lyrically dense, personal, emotional, those last 45 seconds are slipknot at it's highest intensity

I can't believe how only 1%, literally ONE PERCENT of the votes have been for this MASTERPIECE of a song, like come on people VOTE THIS UP

'I'm Just a Bastard, But At Least I Admit it' Lyrical Genius beats all the rest easily.

Excellent opening verse which really does make you want to take a bite out of a freshly ripped heart.

22 The Blister Exists

Whenever I get new earphones or headphones or any listening gear, I paly this song to judge them and when it says "can you feel this? " If I like it then I am keeping it,if not I am returning it. Simple.

This song can make a 80yr old headbang... Its that alive!

Amazing drumming by Joey. Under-rated!

Nothing beats this drumline and how it plays off against Mick and Root’s riffs.

The best song ever its (THE BLISTER EXISTS)

23 Pulse of the Maggots

6?? this should be 1! Maggot for life

This song should be number 2 with Psychosocial 1 and before I forgot 3


You're kidding me right? 2% of votes for this song? This is definitely my favorite, especially the verse that starts after that guitar solo. It's just so energetic! Love this song and Slipknot!

24 Killpop

If you read Snuff reviews then you know it helped the sadness I felt from a harsh breakup. This helped with my harsh feelings I felt. It was a real release.

There isn't much I like on the new album, mainly because I think slipknot lost identity, it sounds good, but not like them, however, this song really stuck out to me, and I have to say oddly enough, is my favorite song on the album. The lyrics are very dark and have a the feel of and atmosphere of their debut album or Iowa, I literally can't stop playing this over and over. One of slipknots best songs for sure

Seriously it deserves much higher rating!

Awesome song with amazing lyrics. Truly one of the better songs of their new album.

25 Purity

I think that it's easy to see with this only being at number 40 is that Slipknot have too many awesome songs! Brilliant band!

Hands down, one of my favorite slipknot songs, you wont regret taking the time to listen to this one. Definitely in my top 5 songs. Seriously.

This song deserves more... It has to be on top 10! This one kills every body's ears, the lyrics is beyond the eternity cause this song is purity!

The first Slipknot song I ever heard, and it's still my favorite, 13 years later.

26 Vermilion Pt. 2

Incredible! The vocals in this song as amazing! I love they can change from heavy and do tat amazing

This is the best band ever, in my opion at least. However, of all the perfection that makes up this band, Vermilion pt. 2 has to be my favorite, tied only to Pulse of the Maggots.

Emotional. Its relaxing. The way the upper vocals overlap the lower vocals is simply amazing

This is such a touching song. One of the most touching songs of this band, and one of the most meaningful, not the best, but it is better than some songs in the top 10.
I really love it thit

27 All Out Life

I challenge you to all out life! Epic guitar riffs. I bang my head every time. Best new song yet.

Yo the build up to everything in this song is fantastic. Easily one of the best recent projects Slipknot has put out.

Overall great song with relatable lyrics that make you feel something special

I write my homework or just type something on the computer and when this song comes, my head just goes crazy automatically.

28 Everything Ends

It's crazy how much I love this song when I'm mad. It makes me feel better because Taylor is angrier than me... Pure violence and deeps lyrics!

One of the first Slipknot songs I heard. I've heard it a lot of times and I still don't get tired of it. It's also one of my favorite songs in Iowa (which is not my favorite Slipknot album, but I still really like this song over a lot) I wonder why haven't people voted for this? I mean it's better than Duality and Before I Forget! haha. It's amazing from the first second to the last.

NUMBER 33? This song is AMAZING. I thought this would be one of their most notable and top songs.. So hard not to scream along to this.

Top songs are all mainstream. This song is slipknot at their best. How could this song be at 33?

Too hard for the little kiddies probably.

Iowa is one of the most underrated albums ever in my opinion.

29 Custer

I like the heavy lyrics and the catchy sound to it it makes me feel better and makes me get things done.

I LOVE.5 and I think that the lyrics and intensity behind this song are just incredible. I know a lot of people like the original, raw Slipknot, but you have to evolve with a band as well, and this song captures a little bit of both worlds. "You form a line, to formalize, the former lies"

This song, especially the chorus with the chanting just gets my blood pumping so much! When I'm in the gym, I always listen to this, it gets me pumped, ready to face anything. In my top 8

Every time I hear this song it feels like I'm at a slipknot show. This song really captures their live sound in it!

30 Sarcastrophe

Sarcastrophe is an amazing song. Kind of reminds me of the Iowa period. The pure anger.. This needs to be higher.

This is my perfect Slipknot song, and a formula they hadn't really used before. It starts off with a barely audible (gasp) CLEAN guitar riff, and some tribal (?!? ) drums. However, at around the minute mark, there's that epic drum roll, the main riff comes in, and

Another new and amazing one.

What should be a lot higher than this

31 Unsainted

Incredible piece, makes this album the best album so far along with Nero Forte and solway firth

Hell Yeah! This song and All Out Life are both proof that Slipknot can still rock even with the losses of Jordison and Gray. RIP Paul Gray

People keep saying that this is a song that the band has made to get more play on the radio. I wholeheartedly disagree! This is a slipknot song in its own right, goddamnit! The heaviness, the melodical chorus, everything is just right!

This song is very catchy! It keeps sounding in my mind after months of being released. Let's make it top 10!

32 Prosthetics

Dammit man, this song being so low is a mistake

Are you kidding me, this is the best song ever. It's starts off really creepy, then really gets going'. It's a masterpiece. How is it 28th. #1

Why the hell is this so low -.-?

The only song that's keeps me up at night, still creeps me out to this day. Incredible song writing

33 Gematria (The Killing Name)

Wolf92xd summed it up perfectly. I'd say this is their best song that isn't a single, and there's plenty of singles that this is better than.

fantastic lyrics. cool drumming. gets you pumped!

Probably my second favorite song on the album behind Sulfur. This is so good, and that solo is just as awesome as the other parts in the song. The first time I heard this song I didn't like it, but it was just sort of time for me to realise that I really liked it. It deserves to be in the top ten.

Awesome, just pure heavy metal. Great song two part intro song to kick off a kick ass album!

34 Solway Firth

It feels so villain. Its like the idea was to make them feel like this dark brotherhood. Each with their own unique style and sinister presence.

The chorus is so good. It gives me an almost primal sense of adrenaline with the pumping drums and driving guitar, and the slow buildup makes the song even better. Corey does an amazing job with different accents and mixing his signature growly screams and his clean tones.

This is a top 3 Slipknot song of all time for me. Everything is just amazing. Great chorus, heavy lyrics and heavier riffs.
If this song was in the self-titled or Iowa, it would be widely considered as one of their greatest.

This song is an example of the best of slipknot, the second of WANYK that shows us the dark essence of the first album, incredible vocals that seem taken from the mix of.5 with Iowa. Destructive and somewhat melodic riffs reminiscent of Psychosocial, calm and mysterious parts that contrast with the heavy parts, and good lyrics. Guess this in the top 10.

35 I Am Hated

Underrated song, one of the best on Iowa

What the hell this song is amazing come on at least in the top ten

My favorite slipknot song I hate the fact that this is number 38?

Another song of the many gems in Iowa. The way Corey screams here it's awesome. I hear this song while playing need for speed and I always end in first place, it gives me that hatred vibe towards the other competitors lol.

36 AOV

This song is underrated, you can see that since this is not even in the top 25. I don't know why, it's one of the best songs in The Gray Chapter and it's also one of the most powerful Slipknot songs. The lyrics are also true and if you understand them you will like this song even more, It's way way better than all the songs in the subliminal verses in my humble opinion, and it has a fast heavy tempo. This song has a lot of elements which makes it so damn good. Jay really showed off his ability in the drums in this album, I will miss Joey but what can I do?. And returning to the song. It's just awesome. It should be way higher, maybe someday people will really appreciate this song and stop voting always for the same overplayed and overrated songs.

AOV has to be top five. The song has everything, and it is so representative of Slipknot. It's a thunderous ride. One of the best songs they've ever recorded.

Needs a video so more people are exposed to it.

I know it's new. I know typically, bands tend to release their best stuff early on, but this song is incredible. Super heavy and a great combination of Corey screaming and singing. Hands down my favorite.

Definitely the best song on Chapter 5. This deserves a place in the top ten. Pure adrenaline, aggression, tight rhythm with a good build up to a open melodic chorus, excellant!

37 Get This

Who ever didn't put this in the top ten

Suck these nuts

I can't help singing along to this song, it's fast paced and badass. Should be in at least the top 20.

What the guy below this said.

38 Slipknot

Slipknot's song "Slipknot" (homonymous to the band's name, "aka. Pentex Sucks"), is the 1st track from "MFKR" (their 1st demo album), although is widely unknown, is an amazing Ode to hatred (on the enemy, it's minions, the weak and the apathic).
NOTE: their song "(sic)" (from their studio album "Slipknot") is just a speeded up version of this song, with new lyrics: "You can't see me, for I hide within the Umbra" = "You can't kill me, cause' I'm already inside you".

39 Eeyore

heaviest song by the heaviest band in the earth

It's so deep. , the story behind it is amazing

For those who said Slipknot doesn't have impressive guitar work.

40 Liberate

awesome song, and great to rock out to.

Amazing song, amazing riff #1 for me


38! this masterpiece must be much higher people! at least in top 10.this is slipknot not dead memorize that in 7 place!

41 No Life

Please vote sensibly. This is surely one of their best. This song defines their style and its lyrics is deep. If you haven't heard it, hear it and then see.

Without a shadow of a doubt this is SlipKnot at their rawest, absolute best.

AMAZING... Any slipknot fan has to love this song, it is true nu-metal and my favorite just after eyeless and wait and bleed... As you can probably tell their first album is my favorite.

I love this song, it was the second slipknot song I listened to, and I was like he can sing and scream so well. This song made me get into slipknot, it made me want to listen to more, because it had a great blend of scream and singing, with the same insane and hardcore hateful music

42 Skin Ticket

This is one of the angriest songs I've ever heard, DEFINITELY deserves a lot more credit

72nd? Where are the REAL MAGGOTS!? This, purity, eyeless, gently, and left behind are my personal faves, but 72nd? Wow... SKIN TICKET for TOP 10! Come on maggots! Show skin ticket some love

This one song describes the Iowa album perfectly. It strikes true fear while listening to it, and makes me just feel angry. I can't scream along with it, because it makes me feel like I am ruining this song's beauty.

Scissors and this are something, something dark and awesome!

43 Only One

How the hell is this not in the top 10? It's so amazing! Lot's of good hardcore energy! A (sic) song to mosh to!

44 Nomadic

The album is a real masterpiece so it's very hard to choose a best song. But I guess Nomadic takes the cake. Insane intro, brilliant bridge to what may be Slipknot's most haunting chorus, and finally the memorable. All in all, a great track that is seriously under-heard, because if it were heard by so many people, it would be in the top 10-15 at least and not be rotting here at 83rd.

Deserves to be MUCH higher

54?!? Really? Show this song the love it deserves!

45 Iowa

It's definitely the creepiest song I have ever heard.

"Relax, it's over, you belong to me, I fill your mouth with dirt." Definite creepy material. It's the best love song you know.

This sounds like a killer talking. It’s so eerie and creepy. To know the story with Corey in the studio it makes it even more chilling. It is brilliant, but it is very chilling in the first listen.

Makes black metal look like christian rock

46 Wherein Lies Continue

One of the most underrated songs in existence.

Way way better than before I forget, just listen to it, you'll see why I voted this awesome song!
By the way psychosocial still their best song

Perfect chorus One of the best vocals ever... I wont control or restrain things I do not understand... Pefect for me it can beat also psychosocial I'm nto sure but I think it can burt sure songs like eyless people=shit are nothing to this song

47 Gently

The brooding build up, the sinister bassline, the intimidating growls and the beastly lyrics.

What is not to love?

WHAT? Gently not even in the list, this song should be in in top 20 AT LEAST, what my fellow maggots forgot about how great the song is. There are two versions and both are good enough, IOWA version is real kick ass, but MFKR version, man its an epic

This song is one of the first that Slipknot made. It deserves more credit.

U can't call this song Nu-metal, Should be in the to 10,

48 Three Nil

I love this song! Its simply amazing! But my overall favourite is by far 'Danger - Keep Away'. One of the most amazing songs in history!

49 New Abortion

New Abortion is here? Come on people, this is one of the heaviest slipknot's songs ever, is top 10 at least!

How is this not in the top ten? Are you people to busy with the new album to remember their BEST era?

So underrated but definitely one of my favorites

I got a new abortion the other day

50 Danger - Keep Away

Simple yet enchanting.

The long version can put one in a trance, too.

One of those songs that really shows how versatile Slipknot can be.

This is one of my favorite songs... It has a nice rhythm... It should have been in the top 20 at least

Perhaps my favorite song of all time

The only Slipknot song I listen to.
