So, a couple years ago – no, really, a couple YEARS ago – I had the bright idea to make a list of the Top 10 Five Finger Death Punch Songs. One of the most commercially successful Metal acts of the 21st century – and quite a prominent one during my early to mid teens – I know the catalogue well and this thing should be real easy to put together, right?
I quickly gave up. I started making the list and realized that, based on what I was hearing coming out of the speakers, my problem was not gonna be NARROWING DOWN the best songs, but actually finding 10 that I liked! I was stunned at how much my tastes had changed over time. In the coming year, I went on to make a negative video about the band and then another – albeit, facetious – negative video about the band.
Fast forward two-and-a-half years, and I had this burning desire to go back and complete the list. Sure, my tastes have evolved quite a bit over the years, but it was time for a fun little trip down memory lane. And ironically, approaching this topic as a critical “outsider”, so to speak, made for much more compelling content in my book.
So here it is, a fond ode to quite possibly the bro-iest (is that a word?) Metal band of all time. I hope you guys enjoy!
