|Top 10 Sevendust Songs|
Sevendust. My favourite band of all-time. A band rwhich is willing to revolve at any given moment, and through each stage rof their career, rthey've always found a new reason to stick around. rThe guys still have rloads to offer this flawed world of music, and I ronly believe that they'll rget better and better as they progress. Here's the rbest (10) songs I've rheard from these guys; which was a bit hard to put rtogether because I ralready have a laundry list of songs by them on my riPod already that I rcould easily listen to on a daily basis.
It opens in spectacular fashion as the bass and guitar kick-in, along with
superb drumming, and make way for Lajon's delivery of the words: "You look for
love through eyes of strangers". Right away this song made a connection with me
because it displays the envy that every human being often feels towards another:
"I wish I had your life for dreaming". Everyone was at their peak with this
sophomore effort, entitled Home, and it shows immediately with other tracks, as
well (like Waffle and Denial).
What a way to open up a record. With Inside, it feels like the boys wanted to
back into their metal roots with this album (and it worked). However, no other
featured on this album had as much power as this one. It starts off with the
of machines at work in the background before coming in with the rocking guitar
work. Lajon comes into the song with attitude, blurting out the lines: "Pleased
meet the mother3583er with the first laugh". Fantastic intro (and the only song
that ever even comes close to it is Hope with it's spectacular guitar solo by
Bridge member Mark Tremonti).
Sevendust's longest song to-date. It starts off in a very atmospheric fashion,
building up the chilling sound of guitars over what sounds like running water.
the guitar eventually leads us into the intense first verse that beautifully
the magnificent chorus: "Wash away the colours of the shame that you gave to me
/ So I can see again / So I can live again". This song is the band's most
heartbreaking song, it's a masterpiece.
Proof that these guys can sound even better when you bring them outside the
studio. With this live version of their popular opening track to their self-
they bring it to new, refreshing heights in this outstanding acoustic
from their amazing live album Southside Double-Wide.
Another song off of my favourite album by these guys, Dead Set continues to blow
me away every time I hear it. It was the most well-written track off the album
it holds immediate relevance in today's world with the lyrics: "One single life
not to die / For such a cheap price / For one last flight / God, save the child
lives like a whore/ (I made it through yesterday)". Great work.
This song always reminds me of that awesome Jet Li movie Unleashed. Ever since I
watched the music video somebody put together on YouTube, I couldn't seperate
The best song off their first record.
A great choice to use as a single for their latest effort; which is probably my
favourite record by them, only being behind Animosity and their self-titled.
This is off of Animosity, my favourite album by these guys. On this track, Clint
Lowery takes centre-stage as the lead vocalist this time around and he proves
himself to be just as strong as Lajon when it comes to having a strong presence
and all-around incredible ability to hold your attention. The flaws in his voice
work in this song's favour because he's singing about a subject that obviously
whole lot of meaning to him.
My favourite song off of my least favourite album from these guys. Where the
album itself sometimes tries to hard to appeal to the "radio-friendly" crowd, a
like this can easily wash that idea all away with it's striking lyrics and what
quite possibly be Lajon's best vocal performance to-date.
|lol what? Not emo enough for ya? If so, my apologies.|
|Superb List 4.5/5|
|Thanks, man. I've been following these guys forever now and it feels nice to finally have a list of (what I feel are) their best songs. The only thing that sucks about making a Top 10 list for a band this good is that there will always be great songs left behind ("Ugly" is another one of my favourites and it is also the best music video the band has made). What would be your favourite Sevendust song?|
|One of the more consistent bands in the genre, good list|
|Absolutely agree, skoopy. That's why they're my favourite band. They've never disappointed me. Although Seasons is my least favourite album from them, it still has some of their best songs.|
|I love "Waffle", but it's a song I've heard one too many times to list as one of my absolute favourites. It's still a great song, don't get me wrong though. I absolutely love it.|
|Grasp is an interesting pick as your first favorite. All of these songs are great, but my top ten would be a lot different. Live Again, Follow, Denial, My Ruin, and Fear would be in my top 5.|
|Have you ever heard "Leech"? It's from the Freddy vs. Jason soundtrack and it's beautiful (surprisingly because it's attached to a film like Freddy vs. Jason). I probably should have edged it in on here somewhere because it's one of my favs by them.|
|"Leech" is a great song, along with "Corrected" and "Fall". They have made some great songs for movies.|
|They sure have. I'd love it if they released a B-sides album (but a new one would be even better).|
|they're alright. lyrics can be kinda cheesy, though.|
|They are currently recording a new album. They keep giving updates on facebook and I can't wait for it to come out. I'm actually surprised that they are recording one now because John Connolly and Vince Hornsby just released an album under the band name "Projected" and Morgan and Clint released one for "Call Me No One". They have been quite busy as of late. Both bands are really good by the way.|
|I'm gonna have to check out Projected, I've only heard of the Call Me No One side-project, and that was great, so it makes me feel confident that I'd also enjoy this other one they have.|
