Top Ten Songs To Headbang To

Just a list for all the most brutal songs to get whiplash to.

The Top Ten

1 Raining Blood - Slayer Raining Blood - Slayer

The first time I heard this song, I was just listening to the creepy rain effects, and then the awesome riff, and then I all of a sudden just started to violently headbang!

Seriously my FAVOURITE song to headbang to.
Adrenaline rush

Never listen to this song in class or people will give you weird looks for unknowing throwing your books around the room during the tremolo riff

This song gave me whiplash, that is all

2 Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica

I love three days grace but this is a total headbang song - seether62

Has To Be Number 1 - rocker1796

James hetfield, the master of "Riffs".

Not in the top 100 songs for headbangs. Try out Filth in the Beauty by The Gazette -RU (again)

4 It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon

I loved Bring Me The Horizon and never another Band, Amazing!

I totally agree. While I do think other songs from this album are better "headbanged" to, this one's great too, and one of my favorites from this album. The lyrics are also amazing.

5 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down

"Wake up,
Grab a brush and put a little (makeup),
Grab a brush and put a little,
Hide the scars to fade away the (shakeup)
Hide the scars to fade away the,
Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?
Here you go create another fable"

One of the best modern metal bands and one of the best metal songs ever. Lets be serious whether or not you heard of this song or band before ull definitely feel a whiplash on your neck after listening to this. Plus the guitar riff in the beginning is one of the best ever -- a work of art. What the song is about, probably something political like all their other songs but who cares about that. Song hardcore stuff any rocker will and probably does love.

this song is always a club favourite!, back down Hip Hop.. its mosh time!

This song is amazing, but honestly, for me, Deer Dance is more headbanging than this song.

When angels deserve to die...
Post that phrase it's impossible not to headbang, that part really is the best headbanging material I have come across.

6 In Waves - Trivium In Waves - Trivium

Proper screaming. Makes you want to jump

The Contenders

11 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth

This is what I call a headbangers dream song. It has god the
ability to draw you into the music and make you feel like a viking yourself. It should be #1 for sure

12 Prison Song - System of a Down Prison Song - System of a Down

This song caused me to have a sore neck the next day after a System of a Down gig Needles by System of a Down is another good song to headbang to.

This song is not the best but it is one of the best and it is the sickest song I've ever heard. - moose4life19

15 Black Label - Lamb of God Black Label - Lamb of God

I don't know what this song is doing on 10. It should be 1. Not only does it make you headbang but it starts pits and walls of death and that's like the highest peak in a metal concert.

If you like heavy metal and goin to concerts. I highly urge you to go see Lamb of God. - M3ta1G3ar501id

Probably the most brutal one from lamb of God... It should be in at least top three

The Groove in this track makes this a joy to headbang to

Has a steady yet somewhat heavy riff - walkingstone

20 Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue


You cannot EVER even begin to reach the ultimate levels of totally AWESOME that this song reaches. Get wasted with a bunch of strippers, start this song, then dial in max volume plus 5... and prepare to ROCK.

The first hair metal band that was badass and they sure as hell kicked ass - M3ta1G3ar501id

Killer song! Long live the Crue!
