15. Under My Skin (L.D. 50, 2000)

“This song is so underrated, I mean this song is just full of rage and anger I mean just listen to it and you will know this song is one of Mudvaynes best.”

14. Severed (L.D. 50, 2000)

“This song says so much about how messed up our world is and how much pain and broken trust we go through every day truly it is sad. Chad Gray is sick of this life and I am too, and I’m positive everyone else is also.”

13. Scream with Me (Mudvayne, 2009)

“Song is about letting all your anger out by screaming im thinking or singing. He is saying that if your feeling like you have a body full of empty (nothing) and you have rage on your mind or your angry just sing and it will help.”

12. Fall Into Sleep (Lost and Found, 2005)

“Fall Into Sleep from Mudvayne pretty much summed up how humanity has fallen when immorality becomes morality. Humans became lost and they think their own systems of thought may work. Sadly, they misguided themselves. The world is full of violence. Bad morals became useless, plus it gets more and more worse everyday. It’s a world dominated by sin. We’re imperfect humans and we can’t stop making mistakes.”

11. Mercy, Severity (The End of All Things to Come, 2002)

“This song is extremely deep. It may just be my favorite song, and it personifies so much of what I love about Mudvayne. The End of All Things to Come is a concept album. Each of the songs is based on a sign of the Zodiac. “Mercy, Severity” is based on the sign of Aquarius, so I’d say the lyrics have something to do with that..”

10. Skrying (The End of All Things to Come, 2002)

“Good song, excellent instruments playing (all instruments). It seems like it’s about looking back at some good/safe times, because they say “that place you would go to take the pain away” and “that place you would go to make it all okay”. It’s kind of about finding you’re “happy place”, the meaning is kind of hard to describe but I basically know it.”

9. Internal Primates Forever (L.D. 50, 2000)

“I don’t think it is limited to drug addiction, drug addiction may be part of the theme of the song but I think it has to deal with desire more in general. At least that’s what I thought when I first looked at the lyrics. I don’t see why the name of the song would fit if it were just about drugs… internal primates forever meaning we act and are controlled by our desires and not by rational thought.”

8. Nothing to Gein (L.D. 50, 2000)

“This song for those of you who don’t know is about the serial killer Ed Gein who killed women n wore their faces. Lyrics have quite a diff meaning once you know that.”

7. Determined (Lost and Found, 2005)

“I honestly don’t think this song has any “deeper” meaning to it. To me, this song is just about being motivated and DETERMINED, and not conforming to society.”


6. World So Cold (The End of All Things to Come, 2002)

“I’ve always had this song in my library, but didn’t really start listening to it until recently and now I can’t stop. For me when I listen to it, it speaks to me about being helpless against something or someone that has so much power, but isn’t using it to help the world and is completely careless of those less fortunate. Thus the world being cold is the lack of help it’s getting. I think to this song of kind of a “screw the government, all the power hungry politicians, and the bureaucracy.”

5. Forget to Remember (Lost and Found, 2005)

“Literally one of the catchiest metal songs ever conceived and decently heavy as well as balanced. Chad Gray is an excellently exceptional vocalist and deserves more credit.”

4. Not Falling (The End of All Things to Come, 2002)

“”Not Falling” is a Unique song. The lyrics are outstanding. This song is considered to be a true “Mudvayne signature at it’s Best” song, being played on every gig since the release of the song.”

3. Death Blooms (L.D. 50, 2000)

“This song is just perfect in every way. Beasty guitar riffs, nice drumming, and Chad’s voice in this song is the best. He does his normal growls mixed in with a perfect melodic voice in the chorus. And the lyrics are pretty great also.”

2. Dig (Kill, I Oughtta, 1997)

“Happy is a great song but seriously this is Mudvayne’s anthem! Amazing drums, guitar/bass and vocals especially. This is when Chad Gray’s vocals were spot on perfect and I still listen to this on the go because it just pumps me up for anything. Another way of describing this is the Wait and Bleed of Mudvayne.. it’s that good”

1. Happy? (By the People, for the People, 2007)

“Before you listen to this song, turn out all the lights, lie down on your bed, close your eyes and let yourself get lost in the music. This song is absolutely mesmerizing from start to finish. First Mudvayne song I heard and I fell in love with it straight away.”
