Gojira is an french metal band, best described as progressive death metal. They have released four albums through 2001-2008.
The Top Ten
1 Flying Whales

This song just is the definition of a pure masterpiece. The riffs just hit you like bricks, the intro just sets the right vibe. My first time listening to it I didn't expect it to be good, but was I wrong. Especially that breakdown, it makes me want to just mosh like a crazy man. This song is just gold in my opinion.

A song built up of brutal hard-hitting riffs, chugging guitars, flawless transitioning, impressive vocal work, etc. The transition towards the climactic phase was nasty. It encompasses every single quality a metal song should possess. Speaking about the subject matter, it's quite expected from the band as they're heavily into environmentalism.

After listening to hundreds and hundreds of metal tracks, I can safely say that this song has THE greatest guitar riff of all time. When it really kicks in at 2:45, you feel such an intense euphoric wave.

I can't think of a song with so many different sections wow. And the riffs, every time I hear this song I end up with a stiff neck. Too good.

2 The Art of Dying

A track that embodies a journey from start to finish, and through the aggressive nature of the track lies a story of resignation to the hell that we live in. Simply beautiful

Just SICK. Mood set by the metronome in the beginning. Listen loud to hear the layered sounds and screams. Then it hits HARD. Climax in the center with a really thick chorus. The part 2, or outro, allows you come down after the beating you just took. Could easily be in top 3 Gojira songs ever.

The scene this song sets is amazing. Its intensity and brutality perfectly coordinated with the imagery it conjures up of the instant of death.The panic in the beginning to the instant it happens and then the gradual fading away. It's a work of art.

By far, one of the most unique modern metal masterpieces. This is the track that plays as hell-bound souls fall into the inferno below. Insanly difficult drums, pounding riffs, and eerie tribal echoing vocals make this my #1 pick.

3 The Gift of Guilt

My favorite from Gojira.. The melody is pure beauty, and the opening riff is just hypnotic.. This song is like a tornado of beauty, and sadness mixed together.. It really is the perfect song.. It has some similarities to Iron Maiden-Flash Of The Blade, but I think this has more emotion, and feeling..

I'm not a Gojira fan but still I love this song and find it to be their best for sure! The main guitar riff heard right from the start really gets me hooked and I really enjoy the balance between the lighters, ambiant parts led by this great riff and the heavier ones.

Best song from the L'enfant Savage but a long mile. I have no idea how would anyone choose some of the other songs over this one. It's ridiculous man. The riffs and the drums are so well balanced it's beautiful

Honestly their most melodic and most epic song and still has that trademark brutal gojira heaviness. Joe sounds very raw and angry in the verses!

4 The Heaviest Matter of the Universe

Very heavy song. Very technical, and brutal. This song will for sure keep you headbanging along the whole time. This song is in my top 5 Gojira songs, along with Toxic Garbage Island, Embrace the World, Remembrance, the Way of All Flesh, and In the Wilderness.

If I went to a Gojira concert and they didn't play this one I'd feel like I missed out. Where have these guys been all by life! I catch myself thinking about this tune all the time and I'm still only know half the lyrics!

There are few riffs that compare. This song is crushingly heavy. The scientists that argue black holes are the heaviest "matter" in the universe haven't heard this song.

Not only my favorite gojira song but one of my favorite songs in general. This should be higher and heavy as hell.

5 L'enfant Sauvage

If Killswitch Engage's "The End of Heartache" had a more progressive beat, was a little more over the top in guitars and vocals, and focused a little more on the horror of Resident Evil, it'd have to be this song.

You just need to listen it once or maybe even half of it, to vote it as the best of Gojira and one of the best extreme metal song..!

I put this album on when running to hear it for the first time. My run was 40 mins. I listened to Explosia and this song on repeat for the rest of the run.

Perfect metal song. Kick ass all the way through!

6 Silvera

this was the song that got me hooked on gojira. it sounded like random chaos at first (I wasn't into metal with lots of technicality and groove at the time) but now I love this song

My personal favourite off of their new album, so far that is. Gojira really gave it all they had with this track. Bone crushing double guitar riffs, a melodic little solo and atmospheric guitar tapping because why not?

This song deserves to be at the top 5 at least but since it's relativese new it hasn't garnered enough votes yet. The riff though!

Love this song! I actually like Vacuity and TGI a little bit better, but this is the best from the new album.

7 Stranded

Not their best, but I think within the top 5. Not many bands can keep releasing music with such intensity for 15 years, and this song proves that they can, even if they may be focusing on more melodic vocals with L'Enfant Sauvage and this song. I'm highly anticipating Magma's release and a big part of that reason is this song.

Dude! I don't know about others but I am blown away with this song! That riff and his vocals with that main part! I am carying dude literally I am crying...yesterday I discovered gojira and today I love them like anything.

This song is incredibly good. I know it's new, guys, but this is top 3 material at least.

Not as much of a journey as their other songs but a killer banger nevertheless, one of the best songs I've heard in a while

8 Backbone

You sit there in disbelief about what you just heard. That last riff starting at 3:25 mark, that riff could go on forever, it's like I just shot ten litres of adrenaline into my skull.

One of my hardest decisions. This one comes out on top, though, over the rest. Slightly better than Flying Whales, The Art of Dying, Lizard Skin, Heaviest Matter of the Universe, and Blow Me Away You (niverse).

This utter beast of a song hits you like a truck in the face and takes you on a ride, while gradually building up one of the best breakdowns I have ever heard.

I mean seriously that breakdown at the end The whole song builds up to it and it kicks so much ass. My favorite Gojira song for sure

9 Vacuity

This Song made me realise why I love Gojira so much. It's a song I could listen to all day, every day.

Dark, Hard, and booming. This song captures the essence of Gojira.

Slow and heavy - real metal monster, very brutal monster.

Great Progressive music I ever heard..!

10 Oroborus

This is Gojira's masterpiece. This is what they really are, and can play. This song is the very reason I started to listen to Gojira. Truly awesome song.

The intro is beast! Great guitar and vocals, the best off The Way Of All Flesh in my opinion

The tapping in the intro is amazing, as well as the tremolo and slides.

The intro is just beautiful and the part in the middle in which Joe sings clean is just insane

The Contenders
11 Toxic Garbage Island

Man some of the riffs on this track are absolutely disgusting. Filthly fantastic work by these modern metal heroes.

I thought this could be their best song, but damn, it not even top 10. More songs to listen to for me!

Very heavy and complex.

Gets me so pumped

12 Explosia

There's better songs but this is too far down the list. Has incredible groove and seamless transitions through the various sections.

Such an insanely badass song. Not to mention the outro riff / breakdown is one of the heaviest things I've ever heard

That western feeling in the end!

In the top 5 at least, come on!

13 Born In Winter

Love this song! It's my 2nd favorite Gojira song so I'm voting for it, since it's at 12 and my favorite Gojira song is at number 2, so I decided I'd vote for this song.

Maybe my favorite Gojira Song. Definitely my favorite from the new album. The guitar work is just SO amazing, and when the song builds up. Brilliant stuff

Fantastic progression of sound; gets you pumped up and does not disappoint when the power pushes through to the front of the mix.

The lyrics and the instrumentation are epic, shows what is possible to communicate with metal.

14 Global Warming

Every now and then I think Vacuity or L'enfant Sauvage is the best Gojira song... Then I hear Global Warming again and it just hits me with this realisation of how the world is, and I have the same feeling every time I listen to it, even from the first time I did. Best Gojira song, and there should be no questioning.

This song is absolutely amazing. How Backbone is rated higher is absolutely beyond me. Fantastic guitar lines, incredible percussion... gotta love the Duplantiers and company.

How many times have I listened to this already... it is really hard to pick the best one but, I'd pick this one!

The last minutes are incredible it makes me even cry. It's a very deep and a touching song for me.

15 Ocean Planet

How is this song not in the Top 10?! The drumming, the guitar work, the riff, and the vocal perfomance. It's such an amazing song, it was the one that made me love this band!

As an album opener this is amazing! The end of this song gives me chills every time... So passionate and so epic!

Wow, I sort of expected this song to be in the top 10 as its melodic and catchy. Weird...

The first song I listened to and it left me with a great first impression.

16 Embrace the World
17 Clone

This has the best song I've ever had the pleasure of listing to!

It's so raw and fresh. this is really one of gojiras best songs because even back then they kicked masive ass

18 Liquid Fire

This was my introduction to Gojira. Everything from the heavy intro, the lyrics and the great riff in the mid-section...perfection!

This should be in the top ten HONESTLY how is it NOT.
The lead singers voice goes perfect with the chorus.
Has anyone heard this song should be # 6 or higher!

It has just this epic groovy main riff.

First Gojira song I heard
My best gym song and I think it will be forever, increases my output 10 times in the gym

19 The Shooting Star

The kind of song that makes you feel small, makes you think and makes you want to groove. Personal favouritre from Gojira, those vocals just and that atmosphere just enthralls you.

This song shows what gojira is capable of! Underrated song in my of my favourite tracks! Lyrics are so deep and everything sounds just simply amazing in this one.

For me, this is quite an epic-sounding song.

20 Deliverance

This song is just straight great technical death I don't know why this one isn't higher up, great stuff from these guys.

Best gojira song ever.

21 From the Sky

My personal favorite. While not as epic as Flying Whales or The Art of Dying, this song is a metal masterpiece. every time I hear the second guitar play that minor harmony over the opening riff, I get chills down my arms and legs.

First song of theirs I heard, brutal and catchy song with heaviest outro you'll ever hear.

I can never get over how good that intro riff is, and the outro is to die for.

22 Where Dragons Dwell

The best song they've ever written, and they've written plenty. I was impressed the very first time I heard it. Final part after the pause is just unbelievable.

This should be on top. The riffs from the very beginning and the breakdowns until the end are so damn heavy that your neck would rip apart

The most epic song from From Mars to Sirius. Love those drums. Easily the best song from the album.

This song needs to be much higher on this list. blasphemy that it's this low. Easily one of the top 5 best Gojira songs.

23 Esoteric Surgery

FANTASTIC song, from start to finish. The chugging riffs in the first half of the song, and the epic beauty of the latter half. A metal masterpiece

Seriously one of the best, the bridge is just stunning, and the lyrics are so deep...! Outstanding band.

This song got stuck in my head for days... The melody!

24 Mouth of Kala

There is just something about this song that gives me the chills every time I hear it, especially for the intro. Might not be their most technical song, but damn is it groovy..!

Why is this so low?

I love the intro

25 Amazonia

Very cool song
