You've Seen The Butcher
Hole In The Earth
Needles & Pins
Back To School
House Of Flies
Be Quiet & Drive
My Own Summer
I like newer Deftones better than old Deftones. After I liked Diamond Eyes, I went back through their albums & found alot more stuff I liked.
What I love about Deftones is that their calmer songs are just as great as the heavier songs. White Pony is personally my favorite, maybe just because it's the first one I got into. But I am a huge fan of Around the Fur and Diamond Eyes as well. I really want to see them headline in a club, but if I go to this next year (not likely, but we'll see) I would be pumped if they were on it.
