So I heard a song today that made me think of this thread. I thought I had covered everything but after reading the recent prong setlist I found an old cd I made and rediscovered one of my favorite headbanging songs from a very unexpected source.

As much as I loved Prong's masterpiece Beg To Differ I was more than shocked to find out their 1st album was a total thrashfest. I love Force Fed almost as much as Beg To Differ but for totally different reasons. I wish Prong still played songs from Force Fed because I saw some of these songs live and they were incredible. My favorite by far and one of my favorite Headbanging "driving" songs that I long since forgot is:

Prong - Senseless Abuse

This tour was Pantera at their highest peak and while you didn't know which Phil you were going to get any given night you still knew they were going to bring it and destroy shit.

When Suicide Note Part 1 came over the PA I immediately turned to my friend and said move your beers because if they break right into Part 2 I'm going to go totally ballistic. There are only a handful of songs they set up other songs on that level and when the lights came on showing the pot leaves on the screen the tension elevated to a solid 9. When the curtain dropped and they blew into Part 2 it was total chaos. I was going nuts moshing out and singing along. The people on the lawn started heaving huge chunks of sod like they were shotputs and frisbees and I didn't care at all. I was in another state of mind screaming my lungs outlike a lunatic. What a way to start a show and get the crowd out of their seats going crazy.

I'll never forget that moment and wish other music could whip me into a frenzy like that on a regular basis. If Pantera proved one thing to me as a human it's that we all have a monster inside of us you just need to know how to trigger it. I knew if 2 guys were trying to rob me in a bathroom or whatever that I had that lunatic inside of me and could unleash him if I had to.

Dude would be like we had this guy cornered and his eyes turned crazy and he started screaming OUT OF MY MIND! GUN TO MY MOUTH! NO PRETENSION! EXECUTION! LIVE AND LEARN! RAPE AND TURN! while kicking and throwing haymakers at us. We just bailed. Crazy MoFo! hahahaha

This clip gives you an idea but still can't truly match the power of being there. it was an experience like none other...


#13 Pantera - Suicide Note Part 2
So I'm driving home from work today after another grave shift at the casino and decided to throw a Pantera bootleg in to keep me awake on the ride home...

I can't think of many songs that make me go ballistic playing the air drums like a lunatic but this one will always have that effect on me. I literally felt like I transcended back in time jamming out to this song. Great music never gets old.

Some of my favorite Pantera songs these days are 10's, Floods and Sandblasted Skin, groovier songs that I never really got into back in the day but when they went fast, God Damn they did it well...

Floods is one of the best Pantera songs ever. That outro, .

Agreed. I listen to Trendkill more than any other Pantera cd these days. Nothing cooler than re-discovering great music that you overlooked perviously. 10's was never in my Top 50 Pantera songs and is probably top 15 for me now...

Several years ago I would have thought that was crazy-speak but couldn't agree more these days.

I do really enjoy This Love live though. There are several Pantera tribute bands including Penntera who are incredible who play both songs and they're both 2 of my favorites.

I used to swear by This Love my first two years or so as a Pantera fan but nowadays, I just feel like 10s has more emotion.

I was feeling retrospective today and posted this thread in my buddy's facebook group The Metal Yard. Let me just say 2 things:

1) If you've been thinking about doing something like this and keep putting it off, just do it. You'll regret it if you don't.

2) Cherish your concert experiences, especially the rare ones. I saw Ozzy play Hammerjacks with Zakk Wylde as a warm up show for a tour and my only real memories were being 1st row and begging Ozzy to blast me with water because I was dying of cotton mouth and dehydration. Don't let this happen to you! hahaha
