Top Ten Most Badass Songs

A list of the most hardcore, headbanging, and slow walking songs in history.
The Top Ten
1 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

While this is good, bullet in the head is even more kick-ass. I'm listening to it as I type this.

Rage is the best band

Album cover as well

2 Ace of Spades - Motörhead

Ace of Spades is a really bad ass song... unlike a lot of songs put on here especially the one by lindsey lohan. when was the last time you heard lindsey lohan sing a song and really shakira and beyonce are pop music not rock. This is the top ten most Bad ass rock songs if I'm not mistaken.

Not my favorite song from motorhead but still a kick ass one, almost all of their songs have a much better chance getting here than most of the songs actually in this list like born to raise hell or orgasmatron.

Okay, most of the songs here are NOT what you would call BADASS... Ahead of this motorhead song of true rage as a true badass song would perhaps only be "bad to the bone" in this list..

This and Gimme Shelter are the two most badass songs on this entire list. I wonder what the two of them would sound like mixed together.

3 Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine

I was instantly able to bench press 700 pounds after listening to this.

I make my bed to this song.

This song is amazing because of the vocals and the powerful guitar

That chorus guitar line (rally round the family) is one of the heaviest choruses of all time

4 Beat It - Michael Jackson

How is it badass? I mean, it SOUNDS cool but it's a song about knowing when to run from a fight. Bad is BADass. I mean, it has half of the word in it's title.

I especially love the bit where it echoes beat it, and he pants, followed by the guitar and gongs, it is badass.

5 Enter Sandman - Metallica

This song is the definition of badass.

This is such an amazing song.

Best song ever!

6 We Will Rock You - Queen

Badass song by a badass musician! I would love to date Freddie Mercury! He's so badass!

7 Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

This song just puts you on "Fire AND Flames". While I listen to it I always imagine the badass hero flying like a rocket around the landscape while fighting his rival. It is motivational and hardcore!

I remember this song from the runescape clan war montages. That time was pure bliss.

One of the most badass songs in the world. Instant hype!

I love this song

8 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
9 Joker and the Thief - Wolfmother

Badass... picture entering a prison yard with hardened criminals alone without a weapon... this the song to play.. Note to people voting on this list... learn the definition of badass please

10 Dragon Attack - Queen
The Contenders
11 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest
12 Back in Black Very Rare Version - AC/DC

Come on think of a time when something badass happened and back in black wouldn't work.

One of the best

13 Thunderstruck - AC/DC

Classic. Overused at some sporting events but still a classic.

Every AC/DC song could be collectively put at #1.

14 Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones

Somehow, this song manages to sound like both the 1970s and today's world at the same time.

The official song of the apocalypse.

15 Aces High - Iron Maiden
16 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen

And an other one gone, and an other one gone, an other one bites the dust!

One of the most badass bass lines in history.

How is this not on the list?

17 Man in Box - Alice in Chains

Love listening to this song in my car really loud. Layne and Jerry's vocals on this song are great. Never get tired of hearing this song.

Works best when you're slowly getting out of a car.

18 Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
19 Bodies - Drowning Pool
20 Search and Destroy - Iggy & the Stooges
21 Mama Said Knock You Out - LL Cool J
22 I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford
23 Get Ur Freak On - Missy Elliott
24 Painkiller - Judas Priest
25 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses

From the riffs, drum fills, cowbell, drum solos to the vocals. Everything is badass in this song.
