Schism-Tool
The Pot-Tool (Simple but so fun with the volume cranked)
Master of Puppets-If you dont know who this is by, you dont deserve to know
Fade to Black-Same as above
Powerslave- Iron Maiden

anything coheed.

its really not helpful when someone says this because no matter what band it is, there will be some songs that are better than others. for example, Welcome Home and A Favor House Atlantic are more memorable than say, The Willing Well. Know that this is just opinion and that you may recognize each song, but for this post to have been helpful, the most recognizable songs should have been listed instead of saying "anything".

also, the title track's intro from In keeping secrets is good. but so would the songs they played on the radio from that album, Favor House atlantic and Blood red summer.
