Top 10 Pantera Songs

Self-Explanatory, Best Pantera songs ever!!! R.I.P Dime.
The Top Ten
1 Cemetery Gates - Cowboys from Hell

Amazing riffs, and a one-take improv solo that kills... This is a must-have for any metalhead, along with pretty much everything else Pantera did. Rest in peace, Dimebag... We miss you.

Anselmo's mesmerising vocals define the song, they're just that great. Dimebag's guitar produces possibly one of the most greatest guitar solos ever.

Simply amazing. I always get the chills whenever I listen to it, but those of the good kind.

I love pantera, and dimebag is amazing, but this and cowboys from hell are really the only notable songs by them.

2 Cowboys from Hell - Cowboys from Hell

I love all pantera they are awesome but I think that since this is the song that made them break into the mainstream it should be number 1. Also this song is just kick ass second best guitar solo by Dimebag the first being walk, but everything else such as the riff and the vocals are so much better.

Dimebag... Amazing guitar riffs and solo... Pantera rules... Simply a masterpiece... Simply awesome...

Nothing Better than this song To bad their no longer around, dam selfish fan that took Dimebag away from us.

Fast paced. Sounds like it could be a good fit for Ride The Lightning tone or Master Of Puppets tone.

3 Walk - Vulgar Display of Power

Cemetery Gates and CFH are well justified in their spot in their own right, but there is something about Walk that sets the tone for the band itself. The attitude, the slamming guitar riff and Phil's vocals make it my personal favorite, and it's the song that got me into PanterA in the first place.

The distorted riff is so simple but yet so catchy at the same time. The lyrics are also easy to relate to with an important message to take from it. Pantera's best work for me.

The intro is unbelievably awesome and the solo is incredible... Vocals are great every time I hear this songs it pumps me up... This should be number 1!

It was close between this and Cowboys From Hell, but what did it for me was how grungey his vocals are in Walk, along with an amazing riff, a killer solo, and fitting lyrics.

4 Floods - The Great Southern Trendkill

Floods is the best song by Pantera in my opinion. It has a chilling vibe, but also captures you and takes you for a ride. It hits you with a chilling intro, then tells you a chilling story through and through. Afterwards, you get hit with the first part of a very very powerful breakdown (surprisingly I only saw one comment on it), then a scerenading solo that leads to the second part of the breakdown, and it finally finishes off with the outro, qhich is the best aprt of the song

Make this no. 1! It's perfection at it's best, the clean, twangy, guitars in the intro and the vocals just makes it magic to hear it, it's written in stone that you shall have an eargasm while listening to it.
And the solo is the BEST I've ever heard! Dimebag went full amazing there!


I think it synthetises what pantera was, with this chilling intro, followed by Anselmo's powerful voice in the end of its days... Big solo, powerful breakdown, touching outro.
I think Floods is the best they did.

My favourite Pantera album! So heavy/raw but maintains the southern vibes more than Far Beyond Driven. The stand out song though has to be Floods, so atmospheric and the solos...

5 5 Minutes Alone - Far Beyond Driven

Don't bother searching for a heavier, grimier song than this. Easily the best riff, and one of the best choruses you will ever hear from Pantera. Needs to be higher. Definitely deserves to.

One of the heaviest and greatest songs you will ever listen to. I literally want to mosh every time I hear it.

One of the heaviest songs of all time. Gets me pumped up to do whatever it is whether its running or tying my shoes!

I'm from Texas and I sure know what good pure metal is, and I'm even 13. This is true metal. This had to be in my top 20 songs of all time

6 Mouth for War - Vulgar Display of Power

I love it I crank my stereo up so loud the cops all ways tell me to turn the music down.. I tell them to "f off" and crank up some more.. Thanks Pantera your music makes me turn into a bloody off tap bully bastard rock on? Damage

This song pumps me up every time I listen to it. Brutal song, easily one of Pantera's best works. Dimebag's solo is amazing.

So glad this song is the first song to play on the Vulgar Display of Power album. It gets me so pumped whenever I listen to it

Brutal metal, with a positive message in the lyrics. Love rocking' out to this one!

7 I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven

"Too young for one's conclusion
The lifestyle won
Such values you taught your son
That's how
Look at me now
I'm broken! "

Phil + Dime = perfection!

First song I've ever heard the Scream Vocal Method done!
I don't think it gets much better then this!
Long live Diamond Darrell!

My favourite Pantera riff. The groove mixes well with phil's powerful vocals.

Amazing riff and great vocals, best of a bunch of great songs.

8 Domination - Cowboys from Hell

This is the first song that I heard from Pantera 18 years ago, the Moscow live video. Since that moment it become my favourite song and my favourite band. Good memories.

Hands down on of the best songs in the history of metal. Each part of it is just a masterpiece on it's own. The killer riff, Anselmo's fierce vocal delivery and GREAT lyrics (Binds are like steel and manipulates the will to be... Soon we'll forget as there's nothing else left to destroy), amazing rhythm sectiom by Rex and Vinnie, and that mind blowing, finger breaking solo from Dime, and after all that, witnessing the heaviest and most brutal piece of audio man has ever made: that SICK BREAKDOWN. The live in Moscow version can easily be crowned as one of the best metal performances in history, not if said it's the best.
R.I.P. Dimebag, your genius, creativity and virtousity will be remembered forever.

This is the best song that Pantera has ever made. This song is fast, has great vocals from Phil Anselmo, and best of all has an amazing guitar solo from Dimebag Darrell. The fact is that Cemetery Gates is should not even be close to number one but there it is. I'd have to say that Cowboys From Hell and Walk are in the right place on the list. R.I.P. Dimebag Darrell

For me:
1. Domination - Cowboys from Hell
2. Cemetary Gates - Cowboys from Hell
3. Hollow - Vulgar Display of Power
4. Cowboys from Hell - Cowboys from Hell
5. Mouth For War - Vulgar Display of Power
6. I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven
7. Art of Shredding - Cowboys from Hell
8. Walk - Vulgar Display of Power
9. The Sleep - Cowboys from Hell
10. Psycho Holiday - Cowboys from Hell

9 This Love - Vulgar Display of Power

Yess. My favorite other than cemetary gates. These people have amazing taste in bands. I love the whole song from start to finish, The Frontman phil is something to be respected.

I absolutely love it when a song is taking it slow and with such feeling, and then BAM they hit you with some sick heavy riff!

Amazing' drumbeat startin' from low to high which makes the head bangers party go crazy like hell...

The live album version of this song is the best live song ever!

10 F****** Hostile - Vulgar Display of Power

How is this 13? This song has everything Pantera is good at. Killer grooves, thrashy tone, insane vocals, and an awesome instrumental. To me, this is a defining Pantera song and should be placed way higher then 13. It should be in the top 5 in my opinion.

Pure rage and power.
Stimulates your heavy metal senses!
Will and still is kicking every other band's asses!

In only 4 seconds you feel the power and rage!

One of the angriest songs you'll ever listen to. Absolutely brutal

The Contenders
11 Hollow - Vulgar Display of Power

You posers want to look tough by voting for all the heavy stuff. If you even paid attention to the lyrics and how Phil screams this song out, this song would be number one. It's got the heart, and the balls to say, "Hey, I'm allowed to cry too. My best friend is dying here and there's nothing I can do about it. " It's not about the heavy riffs, even though Pantera was the heaviest out there. It's about how the music grabs you, and if Hollow doesn't grab you, you're just another poser.

Possibly my favorite Pantera song. Such a sad song full of emotion and feeling! I'm a sucker for any song that starts of relatively slow, and then just kicks into high gear!

Most special song by them
The "My Best Friend and "We seemed like brothers" parts of this song, almost feels like Phil kinda wrote a song for Dime's death before it happened...

Needs to be in the Top 5, best lyrics out of any Pantera Song... They really put their souls into this song. Great Song, listen to it and vote for it, it needs to be in the top 5s.

12 Revolution is My Name - Reinventing the Steel

Greatest song on their greatest album. I own all 9 albums plus the live album. Awesome intro tons of killer rifffs 2 great solos and some of Phil s best vocals of his career. Love the switch from yelling to screaming to singing. Brilliant song. Great live too

This song has to be higher, this song is dimebag the lyrics are completely true for any metal head, and its just amazing. Yeah pantera has a lot of other good songs, but this one is the best.

The breakdown solo just has the perfect combo of screaming guitar and thunderous bass.

One of their top 5 songs, no doubt about it! Come on people give this song a chance and you won't regret it! M/

13 Drag the Waters - The Great Southern Trendkill

Killer song through and through! Best off of the southern trendkill album classic pantera!

This is their best song. #1 please

Powerful and awesome!

14 A New Level - Vulgar Display of Power

This is a tough list to do I love em all. But I remember when this album came out laugh out loud wish they were still tearing it up. I seen far beyond driven at the panel room in Chicago when I was younger, them and slayer have the greatest moshes. Pantera is the greatest ever. RIP dime we miss you

Probably Pantera's most complex song which is probably why it was rarely played live. Bass line is beyond sick.

One of Dime's most chaotic solos is in this song. Also the main riff is crushing.

Heavier, Deeper, Better, I don't know.
The Chromatic Riff is just amazing, I loved it on the instant I heard it.
I picked up my guitar, and I started to learn the song
Damn D Tuning and 428hz lol
Rip Dimebag!
Thanks for all those riffs and solos!

15 Suicide Note Pt. II - The Great Southern Trendkill

Maybe one of the greatest songs in history it s deserve at least top 3

Such a brutal song

16 Slaughtered - Far Beyond Driven

I listened through all of Pantera's albums in 1 very long sitting. There was one song that stood above the rest. It was "Slaughtered." The opening riff/verse is like a jackhammer, the chorus riff is like a chainsaw, and the interlude is like being surrounded and shot at by a firing squad armed with a vast assortment of different guns. There is no solo and for this song, and this song alone that's a good thing. This is basically Texas Chainsaw Massacre the song.

This was always my 2nd favorite Pantera song behind Hostile... can't figure out why it's so unrecognized by fans, best chorus by far!

I think Phil's voice doesn't get more raw than this! Also, the riff is crushing!

Absolutely brutal. The epitome of what heavy metal should be.

17 Becoming - Far Beyond Driven

That drumming has got to get anyone headbanging in their living room!

31, are you serious?! This needs to be in the Top 10!

The pain spreads and flows...

18 The Sleep - Cowboys from Hell

People keep voting hit-songs that were accepted on MTV that doesn't mean these songs are their best songs. Listen to the structure of this song, the melodic intro, the amazing solo, the deep lyrics about responsibility...

This song really shows off Phil's powerful and dynamic vocals. The rest of the guys obviously the best at what they did and still do to true metal heads today. Amazing song

Underrated song off the album, it has a chilling acoustic riff in the intro, as well as one of Dimebag's best guitar solos ever!

I don't understand why! The solo is just awesome! Harmonics just amazing this has got to go higher on the chart! Awesome stuff!

19 Primal Concrete Sledge - Cowboys from Hell

Easily one of the top five songs. Super fast shredding, ripping vocals, and just awesome overall rhythm. Why is this as low rated as it is?

This song singlehandedly turned me from Pantera hater to Pantera fanboy. That drumming groove is ingenius, and Dime's riffing (especially in the breakdown) is brilliant!

Pantera's must underrated song. Deserves a top 5 spot.

Best drumming from Vinnie Paul ever that double bass just kicks ass

20 Psycho Holiday - Cowboys from Hell

Awesome opening and continuing riff. The vocals work really well with the groove and flow. An easily overlooked song

This song is so amazing and crazy! Only maniacs can write things like this.

Amazing song! The riff and vocals are epic.
My top 3:
1) Cowboys From Hell
2) Walk
3) Psycho Holiday

Such a great metal groove, so catchy! Should be ranked higher!

21 Suicide Note Pt 1 - The Great Southern Trendkill

Not their best but deserves some bone-chilling love.

The most saddest and darkest song you'll be ever hear.

This song is awesome... nothing more to say

22 Use My Third Arm - Far Beyond Driven

What a truly epic metal song. So heavy and hard-hitting yet so underrated. If you haven't heard it yet I suggest you check it out immediately. Plus the ending is part of the unreleased song Piss. What a great damn song.

Very underrated song. True metal in this song and never fails to get my head banging.

This should be in top ten, people will always call this an "honorable mention", but really it beats out most of the current top ten

23 The Art of Shredding - Cowboys from Hell

Are you kidding me? I just don't get it why people don't like this song, I know it's not walk or cowboys from hell but this is at least top ten

Best drumming of Vinnie Paul here.

24 10's - The Great Southern Trendkill

Most underrated song vulgar display of power was there best album but who ever said it was there only good album is on crack the list should look like this 1)10's 2)shedding skin 3)cowboys from hell 4)cemetery gates 5)this love 6)domination 7)walk 8)a new level 9)death rattle 10)I'm broken. But its just my opinion all there songs are badass.

I'm surprised this song was actually used in Dragon Ball Z at one point. Probably a song to introduce anime fans to Metal if you ask.

Onto the song itself; its pretty good, and it's a showcase for Anselmo's vocal range. I also like Dime's cranky guitars in the solos.

Personally, the sickest Pantera song of all time! The emotion pours from this song! Love it! There's nothing in the WORLD like a Dimebag solo! R.I.P. dime!

I don't why anyone not listed this great song. I can listen this in loop. Awesome riff. R.I.P Dimebag id a genius.

25 Rise - Vulgar Display of Power

Definitely one of the more underrated tracks they've ever played. Especially once you hear that solo, tell me that it isn't one of the most kickass things ever.

Great rhythms and groovy riffing!
