|More Excellent Guitar-Driven Songs|
Here are some more excellent guitar-driven tracks from me. Hope you renjoy.
...And Justice for All
"Blackened" - Metallica's best song.
"Drawing Flies" - Badmotorfinger is my favourite album by these guys, and laregly
because of the amazing guitar-work throughout too, but this song takes the cake
all the way home and devours it. It's fast, at just under 2 and a half minutes, and
it's effective. I like it a lot.
|3||Rage Against The Machine|
The Battle of Los Angeles
"Sleep Now In The Fire" - That intro alone is enough for this song to make an
appearance on this list.
"Love Buzz" - One of the best covers ever recorded, Nirvana hits it out of the park
with this funky, groovy, and extremely catchy track off of their great debut,
"Peace Of Mind" - Need to get happy? Here's a song for you.
"The Lies That I Believe" - The longest track I know of by Thornley. Not one of my
all-time favourites by the band, but the guitar-work presented is hard to deny. To
put it bluntly: it's superb.
"Hellborn" - Raising this track's excitement factor to the tenth degree, here's a song
that I could hear again-and-again easily because of it's off-the-wall lyrics and it's
aggressive guitar-work too.
"Cold Hard Bitch" - Hearing this song again makes me wish that these guys would
have broken out a bit more than they did. This song is a classic for catchy lyrics
and awesome guitar solos.
|9||Alice In Chains|
Jar Of Flies
"Rotten Apple" - Very cool opener, setting up the eerieness this album wants you to
"She Sells Sanctuary" - Not much to say about this one. I can barely ever
understand what the hell the singer is talking about, yet I still love it for it's smooth
progress and oceanic guitar-work.
|11||The Smashing Pumpkins|
"Quasar" - Quite possibly my favourite song of 2012. The whole album was great,
but nothing else could surpass this outstanding opener (or at least for me). Exciting
guitar-work keeps this song fresh throughout, making the limited lyrics sung have
more impact all the way till the end.
"Warhead" - The name of the song itself basically helps describe how explosively
awesome this track truly is. Probably my favourite track off of this pitch-perfect,
hard-rocking joy ride which relies solely on amazing guitar breaks to get by (and it
does ever so wonderfully).
|13||Seven Mary Three|
"What Angry Blue?" - I've never been too big of a fan of these guys, because
they've never (IMO) released a truly great album, but I know a great track when I
hear one and these guys are no exception. This song comes at a time in this mixed-
bag of an album where a little bit of diversity was needed badly, and it delivered
with outstanding results. Easily the best song on the album, and by far the best
song these guys have ever made.
Slave To The Grind
"The Threat" - A classic.
"La Grange" - Anyone who's unaware of this song's magnificence has got to get on
the bandwagon, this is one of the best songs of all-time with hair-raising guitar-
