Top 10 Mosh Pit Songs

The Top Ten

1 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

Amazing speed and loudness just makes it something that you want to flail around and start thrashing. PLUS IT IS AN EPIC SONG.

Amazing lyrics that you can understand while thrashing to the amazing guitar riffs, hell it won a grammy.

Best moshing song EVER!

2 Caught in a Mosh - Anthrax

This has to be on the list. This is a classic song meant for the pit. Saw it for myself about a year ago.

Um. Isn't this essentially a mosher's handbook? And by the way, 50% of the top 10 are quite abysmal.

3 Tourette's - Nirvana
4 Raining Blood - Slayer

Thank god someone else knows what I'm talking about!
I have been to tons of heavy metal shows most being general admission venues jam packed with people. And I love Gen/Admission shows cause I can get right up front and let myself go... If you have ever been in a pit you know exactly what I'm talking about!... Laugh out loud.. So with that being said I can honestly say that hands down Slayer gets the win on this one... Laugh out loud... I seen them when the went on tour with "Children of Bodom... Someone must have been watching out for me that night, cause WOW... I'm not even lying! "I can't believe I made it out of there alive... People were getting taken to the hospital on stretchers by paramedics!

If Slayer ever comes to town and your in to loud, raging, metal and sweaty bone crushing mosh pits... Spend the bucks to see them!... You will be blown away

No one has moshed until they have been to a Slayer concert.

This song has the greatest thrash riff ever! awesome mosher!

Don't just want to destroy every thing right after the main riff kicks off?

5 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine
6 What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse - The Black Dahlia Murder

I saw these guys back in 2014, and their pits were INSANE. I didn't expect so much moshing from a melo-death band, but they really worked up a crowd. They played this near the end of their set. Such a brutal pit.

The Black Dahlia Murder is the best band to mosh to period. Almost voted for raining blood because I've been to a few slayer concerts and they are INTENSE but TBDM has better pits.

For those that have never seen them play this live...
I play this song on Guitar and it never fails to make me jump around my room jaming out to the first few seconds of the song!

You don't get bruises... YOU GET WAR SCARS!

7 Indians - Anthrax

If you've ever been involved in the "War Dance" you will know what I am talking about.

9 A Shrine to Madness - The Black Dahlia Murder
10 The Time to Kill is Now - Cannibal Corpse

The Newcomers

? Master of Puppets - Metallica

It has a tuned down part yes, but the rest of this song is absolutely wild

The Contenders

11 Chelsea Smile - Bring Me the Horizon

Really intense and the tempo changes a lot during the song. Also, every time I've hear them play it the crowd goes nuts. Everyone in the pit knows all the words so there's a lot of screaming the lyrics and getting insane. This is honestly pretty damn amazing. Nothing can compare

An Incredibly heavy riff that when blsted through a good stereo with a good bass is just enjoyable to headbang to

THE RIFF with the drums is just the best beat ever, and when they extend it, especially live, its just the BESHT! been there personally!

12 Enter Sandman - Metallica

HOW is this not near the top! WHY is it at the bottom? I don't care if it may be "overplayed," because when it boils down to it, it's meant to mosh over from start to finish! Needs more votes for sure!

13 Black Label - Lamb of God

This song is the best mosh song ever. No other can even come close. Just watch this song played live

I've been to at least a thousand concerts and lamb of god was my most brutal pit experience.

This is the song that pretty much made the wall of death popular, and it's this low?

Wall of Death.

14 Moonlight Equilibrium - The Black Dahlia Murder
15 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

this song live is the dogs bollocks of moshing songs - muckie

I've personally been in a mosh during this song and it was INSANE!

In this song, there's a time after chorus that let mosh crew open a circle pit.
Or in case, just for a safety head bang

This song is good melody and faster guitar's melody.
I've personally been in a mosh during this song and it was INSANE!. This song live is the dogs bollocks of moshing songs.

16 Seven Deadly Sins - Flogging Molly

Best bloody song on the list!

17 Wait and Bleed - Slipknot

Best is best

18 Bulls on Parade - Rage Against the Machine

Yes. The best is the end.

19 For Stevie Wonder's Eyes Only - Bring Me the Horizon
