    I'm putting together a rock compilation CD that I make several copies and distibute amongst my friends. I'm asking *you* for some rock or hard rock suggestions that stands out as your favorite song(s) you'd most likey "groove to" to at a party or such. BTW, It doesn't have to be radio friendly. My friends are willing to experience unknown & masterful material.

    Thanks

    I'll start it off with "Orion" from Metallica's Master of Puppets.

    Thanks everyone

    Depends on what you consider "Metal"

    Some of my favorite hard rock/metal songs would include...

    "Modern Day Cowboy" off Tesla's debut "Mechanical Resonance"
    "Metropolis, Part I" off Dream Theater's "Images and Words"
    "Rocket Queen" off GNR's "Appetite for Destruction"
    "Estranged" off GNR's "Use Your Illusion Part II"
    "Mercyful Fate" off Metallica's "Garage, Inc."
    "Blackened" off Metallica's "And Justice for All"
    "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath
    "Home" off Staind's "Dysfunction"
    "Toxicity" off the new System of a Down record
    "Black" off Sevendust's debut album

    Also, just about every song from Tool.

    There are so many others as well, but like I said...what do you consider Metal? Is Van Halen metal? Queensryche? There is stuff out there that is so much heavier than what I've listed too, but whether you feel it's cool for a party is debatable...stuff by bands like Agnostic Front and Kyuss.

    It's a start at least.

    There are so damn many! I don't have time to consider them all right now (and you wouldn't have enough discs anyway [​IMG]). Here is one.
    You can't go wrong with this guitar-heavy-grooving-hookline: Van Halen: Mean Street

    Evan,
    Excellent choices and right on track. I guess I should clarify...I guess anything that's not considered Pop. ex. rush to Van Halen to Deftones to Megadeth & Slayer to Queenryche to Sammy Hagar etc. i.e. the whole rock gammet.

    One of my all-time favorite songs, that always make me want to jump around and break stuff [​IMG] is "Locomotive" by Sick Of It All. Make sure you get it on your compilation CD. [​IMG]

    In order for your CD to be considered a party disc, it MUST include songs from AC/DC's Back in Black. Maybe the title, track, "You Shook Me", or any of the others. Also, I really like Queensryche's "Jet City Woman", Ozzy's "No More Tears", and more recently, anything off of Tool's "Lateralus" album. Also, the first Van Halen album is vital to any rockin' party [​IMG] JH

    These would be on the metal side of the spectrum, but they're all great "grooving" songs. [​IMG]

    I just listened to the Riot album "Fire down under", and I think the track "Swords and Tequila" would be great for your CD. [​IMG]

    How about the Motor City Madman blazing away on "Just what the Doctor Ordered" off his first album. I had'nt listened to old Ted for years but the other night I put on his 1st album(self titled) and rocked out to it, in fact my neighbours were probably ready to call the folks with the white coats.

    I agree with Jeff, MickeS.

    But that Riot album is killer all the way through. Swords & Tequilas was their "hit" single. Great one MickeS.

    Everyone...., Incredible picks so far...
