Great thread, I love this kind of songs. In I fact I love them so much, it's going to be very tough to pick just ten.
Not in any particular order except that Kajiura Yuki in general rules them all when it comes to composing battle themes:
Nowhere (Madlax) - when I heard this song and watched the fight in episode 1, I just knew I was going to love this series.
Canta per Me and Salva Nos (Noir) - sad, beautiful, yet somehow uplifiting...
El Cazador (El Cazador) - more and more Kajiura brilliance.
Knights of the Round Table (Ayakashi Ayashi) - absolutely inspiring and magical piece, especially when combined with Saizou's dancing.
Tatakau Sora no Hate (Simoun) - the whole Simoun OST is out of this world and there are arguably better pieces that sound during battles (like Kanashimi no Simoun Shivuyura) but this one has the most "combat" feeling.
Tsunagari no Houkai (Red Garden) - this piece is a big reason for me rewatching a certain battle in episode 16 of this series like 24 times.
Souma no Tatakai (Kannazuki no Miko)
Tema I (Gunslinger Girl) - yet another jaw-dropping battle scene in episode one.
P.S. There are great battle pieces in Gundam SEED but I don't really know the names of the particular songs apart from Honoo no Tobira and there are quite enough Kajiura songs in my top 10 as it is.

Personally my fav Simoun battle theme is Tokubetsu na Mirai to Tameni from the first OST, just epic. I'll do a top ten list later and that will be in it for sure

I guess probably should have mentioned that I consider Toshihiko Sahashi to be the only composer who comes close Kajiura as far as battle themes go.

One Piece: Karakuri Castle Transform
An awesome OST which highlights tense moments of awesomeness like Impel Down, Ace vs Blackbeard
Gomu gomu no bazooka: Classic
To Aru Majutsu: Gensou Koroshi is probably Touma's ultimate battle theme. Definitely feels like a mix of science and magic . Best example is him punching out Accelerator.

To me, the best & most memorable anime battle themes are from Rurouni Kenshin, SDF Macross and Naruto (before Shippuden). The scores for the battle scenes (and any other scenes for that matter) are beyond amazing.

A Confession of Hate
Can't come up with a top 10 since I am not too good at remembering single BGM tracks. So in no particular order...
Before I got into anime I always found the Shining Finger theme from G Gundam to be all kinds of lol and awesome. I still use it as my general "I'm gonna pwn you with awesomeness" theme song.
Tatakai no Hate - Yu Yu Hakusho; although this is more of a theme that happens during interludes in battles. Still it signifies something cool is gonna happen.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Pugna cum Maga
One of my favorite songs from the series; though not a direct battle theme. It does happen during battles, so does that count?
"And now we must fight!!!!!!"
Gundam Unicorn: Unicorn (?)
I don't care what it it's titled. It has all the soundtrack of an epic blockbuster movie
Rebuild of Evangelion: Angel of Doom
It just fits the scene it comes in very well.
Akagi- Shingi. Mostly used near the end of games; incoming pwnage
Also as honorable mention, that combat song that comes up in Haruhi even though it was so hilariously out of place like a matrix ripoff ....

Hmmm, I can't remember all the ones I should list here, but here's some that I liked enough to remember and post here:
"Restart Shootout" - Hidan no Aria
"Blue Tiger" - Code Geass R2
"Elephant's Scream" - Needless
"B13a" - Bleach: Fade to Black - Kimi no Na wo Yobu(not sure if this song ever got a proper title ):
"What's Justice" - Code Geass R2
"Lieu de la bataille décisive" - Shakugan no Shana II
"Hoshi no Kagayaki" - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st:
Battle against Walpurgis Night, "Surgam Identidem" - Puella Magi Madoka Magica
"Last Battle" - Katanagatari, a piece truly fit for the finale of the series, probably my second favorite battle theme period.
My top one was easy choice, Grimmjow's battle Theme from Bleach "Power To Strive"

I don't really have a top ten, since I have watched too much memorable anime to really justify cherry picking what I think is the best, so... just some random ones I can think of off-hand.
