Top 10 Deftones Tracks

Had to make some brutal cuts, especially on the Koi/Gore front, but I can honestly say these are my top 10 songs from my favourite band.
10Deftones
Saturday Night Wrist


Riviere

I love the hushed melancholy of this song about a witch haunting a road for victims. Dark, minimalist perfection.
9Deftones
Diamond Eyes


Risk

This song still chokes me up. It’s a heartfelt plea for bandmate Chi to wake up from his coma and Chino’s lyrics and delivery really get under my skin. The song is so sad yet full of love and that breakdown hits the spot.

The only instrumental track the band has attempted, and my god is it magnificent. It’s maybe the most lush and sophisticated piece they’ve ever done.

Deftones


Deathblow

One of the greatest power-ballads of all time, I ended up cutting Digital Bath for this.
6Deftones
White Pony


Passenger

Such a dense, dynamic, intense song considering it’s merely about car sex. The riffs, the piano, MJK… This is a classic.
5Deftones
Adrenaline


Fireal

The starkest juxtaposition of the two halves of Deftones. The first half is ugly and violent while the second half builds to a gorgeous post-rock crescendo.
4Deftones
Around the Fur


MX

One of the most disturbing Deftones songs ever and one of the most unique. It’s about being sexually infatuated with someone you loathe, and no one can explore a fucked up headspace such as that the way Chino can.
3Deftones
Adrenaline


Birthmark

Extremely disturbing song, and the fact that’s it’s so cryptic somehow makes it more unsettling. This is Chino’s most pained and scathing vocal performance on Adrenaline, and it gives me goosebumps every time.

Around the Fur


Mascara

A romantic ballad that takes a dark turn. I’ve talked about this song at length before on one of the Deftones threads, needless to say this pick is a no-brainer.

White Pony


Kinfe Prty

My ultimate Deftones song. As if this song wasn’t mindblowing enough already, the experimental guest vocals towards the end of the song elevate it to another level, evoking utter anguish by manipulating vocal chords in a way I never thought possible.

The first 2 lines sum up the band perfectly. 'My knife, it's sharp and chrome / Come see inside my bones' The first line is ominous and almost threatening, followed immediately by an invitation of intimacy.
