“Davidian” is a single and the opening song on US metal band Machine Head’s debut album Burn My Eyes released in 1994. It is the 13th track featured on the band’s live album Hellalive.
Band frontman Robb Flynn claims that the title of the song was influenced by the 1993 Waco raid involving the deaths of over 80 Branch Davidians, including leader David Koresh, but claims the content of the song was not related to the incident, but was “violent poetry.”
The song was covered by Welsh band Lostprophets for Kerrang! magazine’s Higher Voltage!: Another Brief History of Rock CD. Also Japanese band Edge of Spirit has featured breakdown from the song as intro of their set at shows.
