25 closers that rock or are just amazing
La Villa Strangiato - need I say more?
In The Nightside Eclipse
INNO A SATANNNNAAAA - the way Ihsahn wails out that line from the depths of his being sends shivers down my spine
Blood Fire Death
PRYING OPEN MY THIRD EYE. this track is simply monstrous, and the climactic and explosive ending gets me every time.

Geography - as beautiful and haunting as it is catchy, this song always staples itself to my brain and remains there for many hours after listening.
|6||Modest Mouse |
The Lonesome Crowded West
Styrofoam Boots - those lyrics, that rough but youthful voice, that groove and amazing drum work - this is a perfect closer to a perfect album.
|7||My Bloody Valentine|
Soon - Groovy.
Everything Goes Numb
The Big Sleep -
the big feels
Album: Generic Flipper
a cacophonous climax of chaotic calamity. also, the saxophone is pretty groove
B.I.B.L.E. - While I have heard from a few reputable sources that this track is actually a mere bonus track, I couldn't imagine listening to this album without it: it's like an ending credits, something for you to sit and absorb while reminiscing upon the journey you've just taken. Perfect.

To Leave or Die in Long Island
And if I wasn't a fat kid in high school, I would have never listened to punk rock.
And if I knew how to throw a football, I would have never played any music.
And if never got my heart broken, I would sing, "Blah blah fucking nothing."
And if you didn't fuck my ex-girlfriend, I would still owe you three thousand dollars.
And if I never lived in that van there I wouldn't have met Chris or Steve, Alex, James, or Middagh.
And if I never worked in a basement I would have never quit my job.
And if I had a big emo band or dropped out of college, I would have never met you, man.

Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Sir Psycho Sexy, that is me. One of the best jams of a life time, Froosh really shines during the outro to this one. just call him the white Hendrix.
|13||The Olivia Tremor Control|
Black Foliage: Animation Music Volume 1
Hilltop Procession, Momentum Gaining - ever since the passing of Bill Doss, this song has been kind of bittersweet for me. It feels like his last goodbye, despite being written over a decade before his death. The way the vocal harmonies slowly fade off into the distance, it's almost like a wave goodbye, like you know he's leaving but will always be there with you in spirit. Bye, Bill. RIP.
yadda yadda yadda, best album ever
|15||Nine Inch Nails|
The Downward Spiral
Hurt - the aural recording of a broken man, Hurt is what we all feel when we're at our lowest. The ending of this track is simply heart-wrenching.
|16||Boards of Canada|
Music has the Right to Children
One Very Important Thought- A short, simple and sweet little track, but still very powerful. That audio sample gives me goosebumps every time. "Defend your constitutionally protected rights. No one else will do it for you". How inspiring.
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
yea good mornin' to all you mothafuckin naughty headed niggaz
Individual Thought Patterns
The Philosopher - a strong contender for Death's best song (one of many), this song is as epic and prideful as it is thought-provoking and brutal. The perfect convergence of the later and early era Death sounds, I reckon.
1234 1234 - an inspiring anthem to late teens and twenty-something's everywhere, this track has the perfect lyrics for every existential crisis you're gonna face.
Videotape - If Jigsaw is the soundtrack to death, than surely Videotape will play at the pearly gates.
The Heat Death of the Universe
Off Minor - after the chaos, angst and depression of everything before, this track comes in just as you're holding the noose to put a smile on your face and make you remember life's okay.
Under a Funeral Moon
Crossing the Triangle of Flame - Here's a track that really lives up to its name- The chord progression in this song alone is nihilistic and evil, and when things start to slow down and the bell is tolled, you can feel Lucifer in your ice cold veins.
Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
Free Speech for the Dumb: This one gives hope to dumb people everywhere, myself included.
Lady Fantasy - I don't really know what to say other than that this is a perfect song that everyone can relate to.
