List Rules Vote for your favorite Mars Volta songs - no side projects or solo Omar tracks.

Formed by friends who grew up together in El Paso, Texas, but then created their unique blend of music in Los Angeles, The Mars Volta has been blurring genres since 2001, though they have since broken up or at least gone "on hiatus" (Omar Rodriguez-Lopez changes his mind a lot). The inimitable band made prog rock and concept albums cool again. With a sound like no other, The Mars Volta became underground heroes with tracks like "Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of)" and "The Widow". True fans know that there is much more in the depths of their albums and that's why this list exists. Vote for the best Mars Volta songs below.

Music videos and lyric videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this page.
