Top 10 Pantera Songs

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

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 Cowboys from Hell - Cowboys from Hell Cover Art

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...

The most awesome riff I ever heard... Truly an inspirational and top class metal band! Cowboys From Hell is of another class

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

3 Walk - Vulgar Display of Power Walk - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

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 - The Great Southern Trendkill Cover Art

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!


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...

Just Amazing on that Solo great techniques and And R.I. P Dimebag Darrell, you inspired me to the guitar and I thank you, your music will live for ever-FLOODS

5 Mouth for War - Vulgar Display of Power Mouth for War - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

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!

Not only Pantera's best song, one of metals best riffs. Awesome song.

6 5 Minutes Alone - Far Beyond Driven 5 Minutes Alone - Far Beyond Driven Cover Art

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.

Sheer awesomeness and maddeningly heavy riffs. The chorus is so insanely powerful that it makes you wanna totally destroy your house.

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

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

7 I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven I'm Broken - Far Beyond Driven Cover Art

If you are a Pantera fan and you haven't heard this song yet, YOU SHOULD DO SO RIGHT NOW. That being said, I also want to say R.I. P Dimebag. I know almost every metalhead says that, but it really hurts that he's not on this planet anymore.

"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!

This song should be in 3 and this is my favourite song by pantera love it

8 Domination - Cowboys from Hell Domination - Cowboys from Hell Cover Art

This is one of the best songs in metal History.
The solo is EPIC
The riffs are great
This is just a great song
In my opinion this is Pantera's best song.

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

This song puts an evil wry smile on my face like ALL Pantera songs... I could put 25 of their other songs in its place and not feel upset about it... I think of this live video when I hear it. killer song. I miss these guys...

9 F****** Hostile - Vulgar Display of Power F****** Hostile - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

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!

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

The fact that this isn't number one, you know makes me hostile

10 This Love - Vulgar Display of Power This Love - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

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!

The Contenders
11 Hollow - Vulgar Display of Power Hollow - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

One of their heaviest songs and one of their most emotional songs at the same time, the intro solos are so good and the clean riff between the intro and the heavy part is so dark, and the heavy part is absolutely insane, especially at 5:19, the lyrics are sad and you can hear Phil's anger through them, the drumming is on point, the riffs and the solos are out of this world and the bass contemplates everything perfectly. RIP Dime and Vinnie

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!

This song is so cool after the calm stuff it goes into classical rhythm and vocals and heavyish guitar after he says best friend it has this cool lead sound in it and then this riff that pretty much players till the end of the song wish I could headband to it but my earbuds would fall out but I can play it out of my guitar amp and then I can headband to it panthers is my 2nd favorite I honestly think there better than maiden and Ozzy but they can't beat megadeth my number one but it was hard to decide that dimebag still wasn't good as Eddie van Halen anyway the song is just awesome and yes THIS IS A 13 YEAR OLD BOY METALHEAD CAUSE I'm NOT A STUPID PERSON THAT LISTENS TO TRASH MUSIC LIKE HIP-HOP! GET A LIFE HIP-HOP HEADS! OR AT LEAST BE LIKE ALEX HEFNER WATCH HIS videoS AND LISTEN TO PANTERA FOR ONCE!

12 Revolution is My Name - Reinventing the Steel Revolution is My Name - Reinventing the Steel Cover Art

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.

This Huckaby and douglasvillie ga..I don't give a damn what anybody says phil what he does like no other.. and who could ever even think about doing what dime did... there ain't a soul ever that can do it better... and them two together you get REVOLUTION IS MY NAME

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 A New Level - Vulgar Display of Power A New Level - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

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.

Might not be the best Pantera song, but definitely one of there heaviest, and that's why I like it

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

14 Drag the Waters - The Great Southern Trendkill Drag the Waters - The Great Southern Trendkill Cover Art

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

Drag the waters is a underrated song isn't it just listen to the lyrics top 5

This is their best song. #1 please

This is top 10 without a doubt

15 Suicide Note Pt. II - The Great Southern Trendkill Suicide Note Pt. II - The Great Southern Trendkill Cover Art

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

I was wondering how this song is so low

Such a brutal song

Live and learn, rape and turn... The guitar, these pitches, the vocals a anthem to break your neck.

16 Slaughtered - Far Beyond Driven Slaughtered - Far Beyond Driven Cover Art

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!

Song is epic! That riff is A class please help it get in the top 20

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

17 Becoming - Far Beyond Driven Becoming - Far Beyond Driven Cover Art

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

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

Awesome song when they played it live

Die hard pantera fans will know that the band had 5 songs ( revolution is my name and damn electric not counted because they were touring that brilliant record anyway) that never ever left the set list, this is one. The other 4 being cowboys, walk, f***** hostile, this love. Crowds went craziest during becoming.

18 10's - The Great Southern Trendkill 10's - The Great Southern Trendkill Cover Art

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!

The guitar and lyrics are so delicious to the ear

19 Primal Concrete Sledge - Cowboys from Hell Primal Concrete Sledge - Cowboys from Hell Cover Art

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!

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

An amazing song, and even more amazing when performed live

20 The Sleep - Cowboys from Hell The Sleep - Cowboys from Hell Cover Art

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!

Very Underrated song nice acoustic intro into some bad ass riffs then to one of Dimebag's best solos. He makes that guitar cry

21 Psycho Holiday - Cowboys from Hell Psycho Holiday - Cowboys from Hell Cover Art

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

Definitely had to be in the top 10, it was so chilling the first time I heard that chorus

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

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

22 Suicide Note Pt 1 - The Great Southern Trendkill Suicide Note Pt 1 - The Great Southern Trendkill Cover Art

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

This song is harshly deep man, I mean its dark, but still awesome
Nothing else like this from Pantera

23 Use My Third Arm - Far Beyond Driven Use My Third Arm - Far Beyond Driven Cover Art

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

Definitely underrated.

24 The Art of Shredding - Cowboys from Hell The Art of Shredding - Cowboys from Hell Cover Art

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

I could never get tired of this song

Best drumming of Vinnie Paul here.

2:40 one of the best riffs.

25 Rise - Vulgar Display of Power Rise - Vulgar Display of Power Cover Art

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!

"THERE's NO TIME TO LOOSE. YOUR NEWS IS OLD NEWS" "Be A Man NOT A CHILD! ". One of their catchiest songs
