Top Ten Songs to Fight To

fight4601

From Penguin Classics' edition of Hazlitt's essay, "The Fight."

I’m one of those people who is ready to get into a fist fight at just about any time. But there’s one thing that would pump me up and get me going that I typically need when I get into it with someone – a good fight song. So, looking through my iTunes collection, I found ten good ones that I wouldn’t mind hearing in the midst of a rumble.

10. Break Stuff – Limp Bizkit (1999)

I don’t even like Limp Bizkit (one of the most overrated bands of the 90s) but this song certainly makes me violent.

9. Mama Said Knock You Out – L.L. Cool J (1990)

A bit of a different genre than the rest of this list, but this classic gets it done.

8. Smack My Bitch Up – Prodigy (1997)

From this masterpiece of an album, I could also go with “Breathe.” Someone suggested to me “Get up, get off” as well.

7. Bleed it Out – Linkin Park (2007)

Every time this song even comes on I want to punch someone. Prior to this song coming out, it would’ve been “One Step Closer.”

6. Dragula – Rob Zombie (1998)

Zombie has so many but I’d say this one rises to the top. This song is frequently heard at sporting events, as well.

5. My Plague – Slipknot (2002)

Other suggestions from Slipknot. “Spit it out” (OverCaffeinated Mix) and “People = S#%t.”

4. Love Dump – Static X (1999)

It begins kinda slow but once it hits the meat of the song, I’m throwing round-houses like Tyson.

3. I Stand Alone – Godsmack (2002)

Also could go with “Awake.”

2. The Sickness – Disturbed (2000)

I love this band, and the part where he goes off on a rant is a soundtrack to any good fight ever fought.

1. Eye Of The Tiger – Survivor (1982)

Okay, this one is cheesy, but it’s simply the best! It was written at the request of Sylvester Stallone for the film Rocky III.

Other songs worth a nod:
The Fight Song – Marilyn Manson
Superstar – Saliva
Bodies – Drowning Pool
Payback – Slayer
Got the Life – Korn
B.Y.O.B. – System of a Down
Rot – Mushroomhead
Bwomp – Mushroomhead
T.R.I.C. – Otep
Beat It – Michael Jackson (Great fight song for when we were kids)
