If you're like us, you're probably feeling completely baffled that it's already almost 2022. It feels like just yesterday we started the new '20s decade, and then... well, you know.

Now we're nearly two years in, and the world looks pretty different now than it did at the end of 2019. But, we're still here, and there's still a ton of great rock and metal to keep us sane until the pandemic officially comes to an end... whenever that may be.

Listen, 2021 didn't completely suck. Live music finally made a comeback, although some changes were implemented in order to attend certain shows. Some bands we haven't heard new music from in decades finally put out fresh material. We practically experienced a nu-metal revival in the fall when Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and Korn all dropped new music in the span of a few weeks.

We're hoping that 2022 brings about some more change and even some more normalcy. So with that, we wanted to close out 2021 the right way — with some of the best rock and metal party songs ever made. Loudwire Nights will host a New Year's Eve special during the last hour of Dec. 31, featuring all the best party and drinking songs as chosen by you.

Whether you're going to a party or celebrating at home by yourself, music is the best way to ring in the new year. Head below to vote for your favorites, and tune into Loudwire Nights on Dec. 31 to hear which ones prevail.

Have a safe and happy holiday!

Loudwire Nights with Toni Gonzalez airs nightly starting at 7PM ET. You can tune in anytime, from anywhere right here or by downloading the Loudwire app.
