No. 46: Five Finger Death Punch ‘The Bleeding’ – Top 21st Century Hard Rock Songs
It was 2007 and metal had grown somewhat stagnant when Five Finger Death Punch came along to give it a jolt. Influenced by the metal greats of their youth, the five-piece band came out of nowhere to deliver the breakout album ‘The Way of the Fist.’
Led by former Motograter singer Ivan Moody, the band served up possibly their most commercial song, ‘The Bleeding,’ as the lead single. The track itself had a more haunting and moody feel, though the metal guitar licks gave it a sound reminiscent of some of the great ’80s power ballads.
