Top 35 Songs I've Heard

Recs always appreciated
35Molchat Doma
Etazhi


CyAHo


Russian electronic post punk hoopaloo
34Mudvayne
Lost and Found


Forget to Remember


Has stood up perfectly in spite of all of its genericisms
33The Smashing Pumpkins
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness


Zero


In my mind, the precursor to all of the metal that I listen to
32Mr. Bungle
California


Retrovertigo


The fact that this flawless ballad sits among the wackiness of Mr. Bungle’s discography makes it all the better
31Rammstein
Sehnsucht


Buck Dich


If nothing else, you can sit back and marvel at the insane production
30Nails
Unsilent Death


Unsilent Death


When I think of a ‘big’ sound, I think of Nails. And this is without a doubt their most powerful effort
29Godspeed You! Black Emperor
F♯ A♯ ∞


East Hastings


Such a beautiful and bleak song that really makes you feel like you are on the streets of East Hastings
28Melvins
Bullhead


If I Had an Exorcism


I don’t think there’s anything better that describes me and I don’t even understand the lyrics
27Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


A combination of my least favorite genres and it’s still making this list. That’s saying something
26System of a Down
System of a Down


Suggestions


The way SOAD creates such enormous atmospheres with such simple guitar work never ceases to amaze me
25ISIS
Panopticon


So Did We


Obvious Sputnik choice
24Glassjaw
Worship and Tribute


Tip Your Bartender


Breaks all the rules and the guitarist puts on an absolute clinic
23Nine Inch Nails
The Fragile


Just Like You Imagined


I think if you showed this to Bach in the early 1700s he’d be blown away
22Norma Jean
The Anti Mother


Discipline Your Daughters


The screeching rock and roll guitar coupled with the minimalist verses complement the theme so well
21Rosetta
A Determinism of Morality


Blue Day for Croatoa


The crescendo calms me like nothing else. That hypnotic beat and perfectly orchestrated wall of sound
20Breach
Venom


Penetration


Maybe the most dissonant song I’ve ever heard. But man is the message powerful
19Pig Destroyer
Prowler in the Yard


Pornographic Memory


An absolute fever dream of a song. This has a symmetrical song structure which I believe is unheard of
18Ministry
Psalm 69


N.W.O.


The ultimate industrial track
17Wu-Tang Clan
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)


Shame on a Nigga


Old Dirty Bastard’s cadence doesn’t make any sense but it’s the best I’ve ever heard
16Motley Crue
Dr. Feelgood


Kickstart My Heart


Hard to believe this was written in the late 80s and is not the least bit dated
15Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral


Closer


People forget about this song because of its seemingly gimmicky lyrics and it was played to death when it first came out. But this truly is Trent Reznor’s magnum opus. It fits perfectly into the heart of The Downward Spiral, and the 3 minute instrumental outro is pure brilliance.
14Have a Nice Life
Deathconsciousness


The Big Gloom


Distortion at its finest
13System of a Down
Toxicity


Science


The message of this song is incredibly powerful whether you agree with it or not
12The Smiths
Strangeways, Here We Come


Girlfriend in a Coma


Simply a compositional masterpiece
11Tool
Undertow


Sober


It's unbelievable to me the level of musical perfection that Tool can achieve when at their best
10Tool
10,000 Days


Vicarious


^
9Slint
Spiderland


Washer


A song that stands out from any music that anyone has produced ever
8Radiohead
Kid A


Idioteque


Dream state music
7Joy Division
Closer


The Eternal


The saddest song of all time. Bar none
6Pig Destroyer
Prowler in the Yard


Hyperviolet


A drumming masterpiece doesn't even begin to describe this song. It’s completely otherworldly with the guitar setting the rhythm and the drums acting as lead
5System of a Down
Steal This Album!


Highway Song


This has been my favorite song since I was a kid but I never knew why until I understood the lyrics
4Tool
Ænima


H.


Incorporates all of the elements that I love about metal into one perfectly cohesive track
3Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures


New Dawn Fades


This would be ahead of its time if it was released today and it was released in 1979
2Knut
Challenger


Ice Will


Pure viscera

1The Bled
Found in the Flood


Hidden Track


Feels like a connection with the cosmos
