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 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
6 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

Badass song...first song I learned to play

7 Enter Sandman - Metallica

This song is the definition of badass.

This is such an amazing song.

Best song ever!

8 Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood & The Destroyers

Old school, new school, no school it is all the same, Bad to the Bone...enough said...

Do you people know what "badass" means? Try listening to this song.

Definitely this is the definition of the term "badass".

Most badass song ever. Terminator 2 movie proofed it.

9 Walk - Pantera

How is this not number 1?

10 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

The Contenders
11 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

12 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

13 Dragon Attack - Queen
14 We Will Rock You - Queen

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

15 Cowboys from Hell - Pantera
16 Raining Blood - Slayer
17 Thunderstruck - AC/DC

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

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

It's not the best song of all time, maybe not even the best Ac/Dc song, but it sure as hell is the most badass

18 Seek & Destroy - Metallica
19 Balls to the Wall - Accept
20 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.

21 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.

22 Aces High - Iron Maiden
23 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?

24 Sharp Dressed Man - ZZ Top

This is better than some at the top, because it's actually talking about a guy's style. A lot of the others are just cool, that doesn't necessarily make them badass or savage.

Some of these people don't know the meaning of badass, I mean imagine dragons, seriously?

They have always had that badass biker dudes way about them!

25 I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford
