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 Cover Art

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!

Played this song while I was buzzed.
Ended up with a major headache and whiplash after 5 minutes.
Definitely seeing slayer play this year.

Why, in God's holy name, is this below Madonna?! I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

If you don't headbang to this song then their must be something wrong with you.

2 Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica Cover Art

End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction.
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkness clear
Leading on your death's construction...

A MASTERpiece.

James hetfield, the master of "Riffs".

I love when he angers the voice!

Not only the best headbanging song of all time, but the best METAL song of all time! m/

3 Scourge of Iron - Cannibal Corpse Scourge of Iron - Cannibal Corpse Cover Art

An awesome song to headbang to and absolutely brutal live. This song In my personal opinion should be at least number 2.When I first heard this song I just couldn't help but headbang to this. If there is one song you gotta hear live. It should be "Scourge of Iron".My favorite band has always been Cannibal Corpse and they have many songs great songs to headbang to, But this one is surely number 1!

4 Black Label - Lamb of God Black Label - Lamb of God Cover Art

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.

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

This should be number 1.

5 Whiplash - Metallica Whiplash - Metallica Cover Art

WARNING! If this is your first time hearing this song, you could break your neck due to head banging too much. That's how the song got its title.

DOCTOR: "How did you break your neck? "
PATIENT: "I listened to Metallica's 'Whiplash.'"

"Adrenaline starts to flow
You're thrashing all around
Acting like a maniac
Whiplash! "

That's what headbanging feels like

This needs to be above Master of Puppets.

6 Domination - Pantera Domination - Pantera Cover Art

I am downright DISAPOINTED to see master of puppets on second. that was never even a headbanger to me. get pantera up there! I was originally gonna vote for scourge of iron by cannibal corpse, or killchain by bolt thrower, but didn't find those. so we went for the second best. RIP Dimebag!

Better than all metallica discography this list is drink drank drunk

7 Drifts - After the Burial Drifts - After the Burial Cover Art
8 Blind - Korn Blind - Korn Cover Art
9 Walk - Pantera Walk - Pantera Cover Art

Pantera.. the band that I will always head bang too no matter what.

The grooves man!

10 Halo - Machine Head Halo - Machine Head Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down Cover Art

"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 youll 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.

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.

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

12 Eyeless - Slipknot Eyeless - Slipknot Cover Art
13 It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon Cover Art

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.

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

14 Backbone - Gojira Backbone - Gojira Cover Art

Headbang like hell to this.

16 In Waves - Trivium In Waves - Trivium Cover Art

17 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth Cover Art

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

21 Lack of Comprehension - Death Lack of Comprehension - Death Cover Art
22 Prison Song - System of a Down Prison Song - System of a Down Cover Art

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.

Great intro, Great Lyrics, Great Band, Great rhythm to break your neck to.
