No. 25: Machine Head, ‘Aesthetics of Hate’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs

Roadrunner Records

With blistering riffs and pummeling drum patterns, it’s no surprise that Machine Head’s ‘Aesthetics of Hate’ makes our list. The faced paced, uncontrollable tune unleashes Machine Head’s fury at it’s very best as Robb Flynn delivers the chorus with venom. ‘For the love of brother / I will sing this f—ing song / Aesthetics of hate / I hope you burn in hell.’

‘Aesthetics of Hate’ is off of the band’s sixth studio album ‘The Blackening,’ released in 2007. Flynn wrote the song in retaliation to an article by William Grim. In the article, Grim inconsiderately praises Dimebag Darrell’s murder by Nathan Gale. The song was also nominated at the 50th Grammy Awards for ‘Best Metal Performance.’
