    sorry but this is a terrible list. the author obviously knows very little about heavy metal, considering the only metal represented here are the absolute most mainstream and cliche songs. how can it be a list of "fight" songs without pantera? i suggest you go listen to "walk" by pantera. then check out "seven words" by the deftones, "wait and bleed" by slipknot, "a new world order" by ministry.

    D12 – FIGHT MUSIC?????

    I agree. "War Nerve" or "Suicide Note Pt.2" by Pantera deserve to be on there. "Painkiller" by Judas Priest, "Hell Awaits" by Slayer, "The Fight Song" by Marilyn Manson, "Fighting the World" by Manowar, and those are just a few that I can name off the top of my head.

    This list is a joke without even a single Tool song. I defy anyone to listen to Hush and not want to immediately kick someone's ass.
