    but of course There were tons of traditional Irish drinking songs that i wanted to put on the list like Red Rose Cafe or Tim Finnegans Wake.. I fealt that Salty Dog personified the spirit of those songs and was a fitting replacement for the list

    Go there and click "Audio" and then listen to all of Heartbreaker on the How the West Was Won recording. Knocks the Stairway one down to second, in my opinion.

    Sabbath bloody sabbath- Black Sabbath: Thanks for metal guys, also one of the most redundant titles ever
    Actually, I think their song called Black Sabbath, from their album called Black Sabbath, is more redundant. Truly badass song, though. My dad and I rock out to it often as we drive out to go surfing.

    Anyway, the most badass, but not necessarily the best or my favorite, songs.
    Metallica- Master of Puppets (Agreeing with you again, Renegade89!) (Youtube)
    Metallica- For Whom the Bell Tolls (Youtube)
    Metallica- One (Youtube- Symphonic version)
    Pink Floyd- Comfortably Numb (The closing solo is what makes it badass) (Youtube)
    Avenged Sevenfold- Strength of the World (Youtube) The band members themselves seem pretty cheesy and poser-like, but I like some of their music.
    Ozzy Osbourne- Revelation (Mother Earth) (Youtube)
    Ozzy Osbourne- Diary of a Madman (Randy Rhoads FTW!!) (Youtube) (Don't know what the deal is with the "Creepy" magazine covers in the video.)
    Judas Priest- Ram it Down (Youtube)
    Judas Priest- The Hellion/Electric Eye (Youtube)
    Jimi Hendrix- All Along the Watchtower (Youtube)
