Top 10 Songs Mentioning War, Battle or Death

The Top Ten

1 Holy Wars...The Punishment Due - Megadeth

Amazing song, you don't need half a brain to understand that this song is about war though. I mean, EVEN THE SONG'S NAME HAS THE WORD "WAR". Apart from that. This song has a really fast, hyping pace. It's one of those songs where you actually feel destructive. the guitars, bass and drums blend in so well it's almost as if you were standing in the middle of no-man's land. 10/10

This song requires no explantion.
