Top 6 best metal songs to pump you before a first date

It might not be the obvious connection to make – metal music and romance – but a shot of fast, adrenaline-fuelled rock n' roll music is a fantastic way to get yourself pumped before your first date.

Perhaps it isn't the first time you've prepared to meet someone you've just connected with, and in so many instances that will mean after an online introduction.

 

After all, more and more singles are meeting via dating site– getting together in a virtual environment where they can exchange messages, describe their hobbies and interests, and begin sharing details such as musical tastes (including, perhaps, a mutual appreciation of all things metal!)

 

Somehow getting ready for that all-important first get-together by listening to relaxing pop doesn't get the pulse racing. What your first date preparation requires is sheer excitement – screaming vocals, a pounding bassline, tribal drums, and most of all, ear-shredding guitar riffs! Dating experts from this website compiled top six best metal songs to pump you up before a date.

 

Happy Song (Bring Me The Horizon)

Sheffield's BMTH is well-known for their energetic live performances, power chords booming from the stacked speakers at thunderous volume, creating a moshpit that isn't for the faint-hearted. Vocalist Ollie Sykes possesses one of the most powerful growls in metal, but there's also a tender side to his songs, particularly in his poignant lyrics. Loud guitars and poetry - perfect for setting the tone for your date.

 

Symptom of the Universe (Black Sabbath)

Black Sabbath was the band that first coined the term metal. They originated in Birmingham, in England's industrial heartland, where guitarist Tony Iommi lost part of his fingers in a sheet-metal factory accident, replacing them with prosthetics to enable him to keep pounding out those characteristic riffs, abetted by charismatic singer Ozzy Osborne. This track, from their ‘Sabotage' album, alternates between a relentless riff and mellow instrumental breaks. Ideal for date preparation.

 

Ace of Spades (Motorhead)

Although singer/bassist/founder Lemmy passed away in 2015, aged 70, he was playing rock n' roll, chainsmoking, taking amphetamines, and drinking hard spirits with all the gusto of someone one-third his age. One of their most instantly recognizable tracks, ‘Ace of Spades' hurtles along like an express train with faulty brakes. If you can tap into the electric energy of this track, your sure to be uplifted for your impending liaison.

 

Sweet Child O' Mine (Guns N' Roses)

Metal is a very broad church, and LA hard rockers Guns N' Roses crossed over to mainstream musical appreciation, selling some 30 million albums worldwide. This track is ideal if you prefer your metal with melody, but when the guitar solos kick in, courtesy of six-string maestro Slash, this one will blast from your speakers, tempting you to get up and dance along to Alx Rose's forceful voice.

 

Celebration Day (Led Zeppelin)

Like Black Sabbath, Lez Zeppelin was right at the forefront of the heavy metal outburst in the early 1970s, although their guitarist Jimmy Page could conjure a rich variety of styles, including folk and funk! This track, from their ‘Led Zeppelin III’ album, as another a rollercoaster of crunching riffs, dizzying solos, and funky licks, which will definitely get you pumped.

 

Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)

Was Nirvana a metal band or simply grunge with a nod towards punk? The finer points of pigeon-holing don't matter as much as the intensity of this classic. Kurt Cobain's band produced some of the most memorable rock anthems of the past few decades, and this is their most easily-recognized. Quiet verses, crashing choruses, Cobain's searing vocal delivery – these are the perfect ingredients to pump you for your date night.
