Best Slipknot Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

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" - DeadlyKiwi

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

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

this song is awesome. Hands down the best song from.5 and one of Slipknot's best songs. It's catchy and brutal and has mindblowing instument riffs.

22 The Nameless

This song makes me go crazy in the best ways possible
I love it and should be in the top 5
Too epic for number 10

Really good guitar and lyrics probably my favorite song from slipknot! - jeff_is_g

C'mom! The Nameless should be in the top 10! This is the wrong spot to put this song in. The chorus part is very amazing and so is the guitar part. This has to to be possibly one of my favorite Slipknot songs. Maggot for life!

My favorite song off the album, if I could choose just one, it'd be this one with no doubt. That intro is awesome! The only bad thing that I see (or hear, lol) in it would be the way Corey screams (and he does so in the entire album). If this song would have been in A.H.I.G. instead, then the screams would be way better. and I'd like it even more, but despite that is still one of my favorite Slipknot songs. I'd put it in the top ten if I could. - Wolf92xd

23 Gematria (The Killing Name)

fantastic lyrics. cool drumming. gets you pumped! - abhishek_mj2005

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. - Wolf92xd

F-ing Awesome song. Their next best after purity in my opinion

One of their best riffs, Mick and Jim outdid themselves on this track.

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.

This song fools you into thinking your listening to some one scream, but he is not screaming, he is some how rapping lake Rage against the machine, but is so much better, he has an anger that no one else has ever captured, and I love this song

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. - Wolf92xd

25 Killpop

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

Not so fond of the new album, the style just doesn't mesh with me (i blame on this joey's departure) but this is not only one of the albums best songs, but definitely one of slipknot's best songs period! This song really reminds of their debut album due to it's dark and creepy feel, and slipknot once again show how great they are at balads without having to maje them be all sappy. Amazing song, very unique as well

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

This is my favourite

26 All Hope is Gone

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

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. - gemcloben

This is one of my favorite songs in A.H.I.G., behind Sulfur and Gematria. It's not as overrated as Psychosocial and it's just as awesome. It deserves to be on the first page not on the second lol. I wonder why this isn's as popular as Duality or Before I Forget. Maybe a lot of people haven't heard it. - Wolf92xd

27 Purity

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.

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!

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!

Listen to this song and look what arises in you. their 2nd best song

28 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.

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

Disregarding the lyrics, I like to imagine this what a cannibal feels when he's eating his girlfriend out of sad necessity.

29 'Til We Die

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!

This song is very very sad. The lyrics are true and it really touches you if you pay attention to it. - Wolf92xd

30 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. - Wolf92xd

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.

This song should be higher on the list.

31 Scissors

Amazing song. So emotional. I can't belive this is so low, and Eeyore isn't even on the list!

Corey's only song where you hear true psychotic, darkened vocals. Probably one of the only Slipknot songs I like and can't find any other music I like except this song.

This song is so creepy, the intro with the sound of scissors cutting, and then it just gets even more weird! Corey is a psycho and this song proves it, I once read that he said that if it wasn't for Slipknot, he would probably be outside murdering people. - Wolf92xd

32 Liberate

awesome song, and great to rock out to. - xrrrockstar

Amazing song, amazing riff #1 for me

Sure it is on the top ten of the album, and I think it should be in the top 25 of this list. - Wolf92xd

33 Vendetta

Vendetta is one of their best songs. The instrumental is enough to be a good song, but at the same time, the lyrics are good. This song isn't the number one best song by slipknot, but it deserves more credit than it has. Check this song out, you will probably like it.

Brilliand drumming, singing, bass... such an underrated song

The fastest double bass drums I've ever heard

My favourite Slipknot song. I really enoy it more than before I forget or psychosocial.

34 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!

35 Iowa

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

"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. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The most underrated song and my favorite one (love)

When I first heard this I was like 'What did I just heard? '... haha. This song is really creepy, one of the creepiest if you ask me. I'm sure that if you show this song to a bunch of kids they would be traumatized for the rest of their lifes lol. - Wolf92xd

36 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

38 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

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. - Wolf92xd

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

39 Override

The song flows so beautifully, the chorus is just amazing... in my opinion the most underrated ong of Slipknot.

40 Skin Ticket

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

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.

"Keeping myself alive, through your EMPATHY! " I love that part. - NikBrusk
