Have a Heavy Thanksgiving – 5 Essential Metal Songs for a Headbanger’s Thanksgiving

Because every metalhead must celebrate the holidays in neck-wrecking fashion, here’s a list of five essential metal songs for a headbanger’s Thanksgiving.


‘Heirs to Thievery’

Misery Index



Not the most pleasant of images after scarfing down your weight in turkey and dressing but, hey – what is metal if not brutally honest. Besides, I prefer to come out swingin’, and this tune could kickoff any playlist of mine.







When on a roll, you might as well go with it, so I’ll continue with the traditional Thanksgiving theme of our forefathers hanging out and eating with the Indians just before taking their land. I jam this classic thrasher like it’s the first time, every time.



‘After Forever’

Black Sabbath



Ozzy has a lot of reasons to be thankful. Right off the top of my head I’d say he should at the very least offer a little praise considering the fact that his liver still functions properly. Funny how everyone back in the day denounced Black Sabbath as Satan worshippers when they wrote a song that openly praises Christ.



‘Roots Bloody Roots’




Thanksgiving’s all about reflecting on our roots and let’s face it, ours are pretty damn bloody.



‘The Fatal Feast’

Municipal Waste



You haven’t truly feasted unless you’re lying around, wondering if someone could actually eat themselves to death. Hence the inclusion of this song on the playlist.
