List Rules Vote up your favorite metal and hard rock songs about vengeance and getting even.

Metal songs about revenge are plentiful, but which is the best one? That’s what this list is about: Pure feelings of anger, hate, and the need to get revenge on the person who slighted you in some way. How far that revenge goes…well, depending on the specific revenge metal songs, it can go very far. “Homicidal rage” is a phrase that comes to mind with some of these tracks.

What is the first metal vengeance song you think of? For many, it’s “Payback” by Slayer. Others might cite “Seek & Destroy” by Metallica or “The Sentinel” by Judas Priest. All of these hard rock songs about revenge qualify. Some of the songs on this list of metal songs about getting even involve getting revenge on specific people – a personal enemy, or an ex who ripped out your heart and set it on fire. Other song themes here involve revenge on a larger entity – including a corrupt government, or a specific group of wrongdoers.

Pick your poison: These metal revenge songs all carry the overall theme in the title or in the lyrics (or both), but they present vengeance in vastly different ways. Whether you’re a perpetually vengeful person looking to expand a playlist or someone dealing with a recent betrayal, chances are, you’ll find something on this list that suits your need for vengeance – at least in song.
