Top Ten Stabbing Westward SongsStabbing Westward were a very underrated industrial band from the 90's to early 2000's. They sported a similar sound to bands like Filter and Nine Inch Nails. While they released only four albums before their breakup in 2002, Stabbing Westward made many songs that have recently become industrial rock favorites. Here is a list of the top ten Stabbing Westward Songs.
This is number one, anybody that rated "What Do I Have To Do? " higher than "Save Yourself" is obviously deaf. And stupid, definitely stupid. That song isn't even that good. I like quite a few of Stabbing Westwards songs, but the one that's in the number 1 slot isn't one of them, and it's not even one of their best songs. I can't believe anyone would think it is. Obviously quite a few people that rated that song higher, either have not heard "Save Yourself", or they're not fans and just picked a song, or maybe thy're imbeciles. Maybe a little bit of all three.
