Asking Alexandria stand tall as one of the most dangerous, dynamic, and diverse bands in hard rock.
This year's From Death to Destiny solidified the quintet as leaders. It's one of our favorites all year, and we'll be listening to it for a long time to come. So, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino decided to compile a list of the Top Ten Asking Alexandria Songs for this exclusive feature.
Without further pomp and circumstance, here it is...
The Top Ten Asking Alexandria Songs
10. "When Everyday's the Weekend"
The Stand Up and Scream closer rages with a thrashed-out riff, gang vocal, danceable break, and devilish growl from Danny Worsnop. It's one of the band's heaviest, yet hypnotic tracks—emblematic of their patent combo of passion and power.
9. "Youth Gone Wild"
Indulging their eighties soul, but rapturously rough 21st century style, this Skid Row cover stands out as a decidedly boisterous and bombastic re-interpretation of a classic.
8. "Morte Et Dabo"
So catchy it's sacrilegious, "Morte Et Dabo" remains one of the finest moments on Reckless & Relentless and ultimately one of the band's most punchy statements. You might just want to disrobe and worship Satan after one listen.
7. "White Line Fever"
Cocaine dust practically oozes out of this downward spiral tale of "White Line Fever". Worsnop's swagger conjures the spirit of Appetite for Destruction, while Ben Bruce and Cameron Liddell emerge as one of the decade's tightest six-string duos.
6. "The Death of Me"
Another From Death to Destiny stand out, you'll be screaming along to this one for hours on end. The sexy video captures the side of the band that's made panties drop and bras land on stage for years now.
5. "The Final Episode (Let's Change the Channel)"
This gem captures the framework of what makes Asking Alexandria one of heavy music's most important acts. Early on, it defined their unique sound that was only to be perfected on later records.
4. "A Lesson Never Learned"
One of Worsnop's most potent vocal performances yet, this Reckless & Relentless classic is as pensive as it is poignant examining just not quitting with true intensity.
3. "The Road"
This might be their "November Rain" or "Home Sweet Home". It's a massive ballad that's meant for arenas and stadiums worldwide.
2. "Dear Insanity"
Practically derailing on the hook, "Dear Insanity" might be the band's heaviest cut. It certainly cuts the deepest, especially once that hook takes hold.
1. "Don't Pray For Me"
From the crazed sample of a meltdown to the unshakable chorus, this one represents why Asking Alexandria deserve the crown and have rightfully become this generation's rock bad boys.
