Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach Reveals His Favorite Hardcore Song Ever Written


Jesse Leach, vocalist for multi-platinum platinum-certified metalcore outfit Killswitch Engage, has revealed his choice for the best hardcore song ever written. Having been posed that question recently by a fan Q&A fielded by Metal Hammer, Leach replied:

Sick Of It All‘s ‘We Stand Alone‘. That song encapsulates why I love hardcore and punk. It’s a total protest song. When I was younger, looking for my identity, I didn’t fit in with the mainstream, I didn’t fit in with the cool kids, I didn’t fit in with all these people. Sick Of It All were one of those bands that made me proud.”

We Stand Alone” appeared on the aforementioned NYHC institution’s 1992 album “Just Look Around“.
