Top 10 Rock Songs of 2013

We’ve seen Rolling Stone’s list of the top songs of 2013 and sadly, not one song on it was from the rock genre. So now I have made a list of what I vote as the top ten rock songs of 2013. Check it out and see if you agree!




Warner Brothers

Avenged Sevenfold- Hail To The King


One of the biggest rock bands out there, Avenged Sevenfold released "Hail To The King" this past August to show they're not going anywhere. Not to mention their live show, which is one of the best out there.

Virgin/ EMI

Alice In Chains - Hollow


One of the kindest bands I have ever met, I was humbled to be in their presence, especially after hearing their new masterpiece, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here." "Hollow" includes some wonderful harmonizing from WIlliam DuVall and Jerry Cantrell that brings back the classing sound of Alice In Chains.

Prospect Park

Korn - Love And Meth


Bring back the classic Korn I have known and loved since elementary school! With the return of Brian "Head Welch" to the band, I had so many hopes for the album. The first single didn't give me the feeling that the old greatness of Korn was back, but with "Love and Meth," I knew they had something really special. Written mostly by Head, they needed his genius to create this song.

Roadrunner Records

Dream Theater - The Enemy Inside


Dream Theater has just been nominated for a Grammy for their song,"Th Enemy Inside" and rightly so. The video is extremely powerful as well, featuring a soldier suffering from PTSD, trying to reintegrate himself back into civilian life. The song was actually written after the Boston bombings, when the topic of PTSD was brought up in the news. The band believed this is something that should be brought to people's attention.

Prospect Park

Five Finger Death Punch ft. Rob Halford - Lift Me Up


This song I blast every time I hear it on the radio. Five Finger Death Punch are huge in the rock world right now and they must have thought " Guys, we made it!" when they were able to work with the metal god himself Rob Halford.

Universal Records

Volbeat - Lola Montez


This song was voted by Buzz to be one of his favorite songs of the year. His exact words: "The song sounds like nothing else I have heard out there right now." Not to mention the band is even being recognized by the Grammys, being nominated for Best Metal Performance.

RCA Records

Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, Krist Novoselic & Pat Smear - Cut Me Some Slack


Genius meets genius with this dream mash-up of the former members of Nirvana and former Beatles member Paul McCartney. Not only did they perform this song together, they also co wrote it.

Napalm Records

Huntress - Zenith


The metal goddess herself Jill Janus brought metal to the galaxies with her song "Zenith." A classically trained opera singer, former ballerina, blonde, professional DJ and more, Jill Janus shows us that she is eager and ready to stay in the rock industry.

Reprise Records

Deftones - Tempest


When the Deftones first released the single "Tempest," fans were happy to see they were back with some great material. The chorus of this song begs to be cranked up to the highest volume when you play it. The song comes from the idea that the world was supposed to end on December 21st, 2012, according to the Mayan Calendar.

Universal Records

Pop Evil - Trenches


As we saw a few years ago at Ballonfest, Pop Evil has one of the most energetic stage shows out there. Always working in the rock trenches, fighting to get to the top, Pop Evil really showed their rock chops with "trenches." This is a band I see really big things coming from them in the next few years. Keep watching them I think they are on their way to the top.
