This article is inspired by recent regional events in the Middle East (Tunisia, Egypt, etc) which gives truth to the ‘Power to the People’ saying and shows that the Arab World is crying out for revolution, opposing tyranny and standing up to oppression.


I put together this Metal playlist with 20 revolution songs with various lyrical topics such as oppression, war, freedom, brotherhood, determination and resistance amongst others. I am counting on you readers to add your suggestions in the comments.

  • Anyway, some of these songs are my friends’ picks (just to get some variety in there) but I know there are plenty to be added!

1- Sepultura – Refuse/Resist
2- Damageplan – New Found Power
3- Death – Zero Tolerance
4- Kataklysm – Tear Down The Kingdom
5- Megadeth – This Day We Fight

6- Rage Against The Machine – Killing In The Name
7- Metallica – Seek And Destroy
8- Iced Earth – Ten Thousand Strong
9- Slayer – War Ensemble
10- Kreator – Radical Resistance

11- Sepultura – Manifest
12- Arch Enemy – We Will Rise
13- Turisas – Stand up and Fight
14- Ensiferum – Into Battle
15- Anthrax – Soldiers Of Metal


16- Stone Sour – Silly World
17- Iced Earth – Path I Choose
18- Kreator – Warcurse
19- Mors Principium Est – Terminal Liberation
20- Benevolent – The Tyrant

Waiting for your suggestions!
