Essential Tooth & Nail / Solid State

This one is a little different. Instead of doing a list of essential songs by one particular band, this one is a list of essential songs that were released on a particular label.

Tooth & Nail Records is a somewhat independent label based out of Seattle that was founded in 1983. Its founder, Brandon Ebel, started it as a record label that would allow artists who were Christians that do not want to market themselves as Christian acts an outlet with which to distribute their music.

Solid State Records is a "division" of Tooth & Nail that focuses on distributing metal and hardcore artists.
