Best Metallica Songs
The Contenders: Page 4XW
What in heaven's name is this?! One of Metallica's most legendary songs with an insane intro, epic chorus, god-like riffs and a most memorable latter half, to make this one of best Metallica's songs. But because it is made by 'new' Metallica, it doesn't get the votes. True, if this was part of Master Of Puppets, everyone would rave about it. But no, stupid Metallica fans feel that 'new Metallica' is not great. That is downright idiocy and anyone who says such a thing should be burned alive. Yes, there's no such thing as 'new' or 'old' Metallica, Metallica IS Metallica IS THE BEST METAL BAND EVEN TODAY! And if you truly appreciate music, you would know that Death Magnetic is a really energizing album and this song, along with My Apocalypse, Judas Kiss, Cyanide and All Nightmare Long should be placed higher. So vote quickly and get them up if you have any respect for these Metal Gods.
Why in heaven's name is this languishing here?! This is madness. The divine riffs, brilliant beats, the conviction with which hetfield sings and of course the godly chorus definitely make this one of Metallica's best. I hate Metallica fans who compare 'old Metallica' with the 'new' one. There is no such thing as 'old' and 'new' Metallica. Had this song been in Master of Puppets or And Justice For All, everyone would be raving about it. But because it is in death magnetic no one likes. That's just idiotic so say the least and such fans honestly have no taste and are not true fans of metal, let alone of Metallica. Better be placed up soon, and if you haven't heard this song, you better, if you consider yourself to be a true Metallica fan.
This song should definitely be at least on top 10! It's awesome!
This is my favorite Metallica song!
This isn't 60 this is betterV11 Comments
Beautiful song especially the echoes, should be in the top 10!
This song is very different, it has a happy sounding guitar even if the lyrics might say something different. I like it
Really? This song deserves WAY more credit. I mean, Kirk himself said it had one of his favorite solos. This, under Vulturous? Seriously?
Most underrated song of all timeV10 Comments
A very awesome and a very underrated cover song. This song is one of my favorite cover songs from the Garage Inc. Album. Should be at least in the top 30's. Despite it being 11 minutes long, this song is still pretty awesome! Please vote!
Metallica has an uncanny knack for making great covers. This medley is very impressive, most notable the "Evil" part.
This song is just so awesome, powerful guitar riffs and amazing drums clearly top 10
It's not a Metallica song it's a cover shouldn't be on this list.V1 Comment
I love it becouse its one of the best live songs from metallica. Other good live songs in my opinion are fight fire with fire, trapped under ice, seek and destroy, four horsemen and battery. When I was at a metallica consert in helsinki no remorse was easily the best moment of the gig :PV6 Comments
Kill Em' All is there greatest album and you cannot beat it. This is probably the best from that album. They should of made this longer, but it's 3 minutes of awesomeness. And if we are talking about thrash. Listen to this Song AND this Album! Kill Em All All the way! - Drummerlevi12
Umm... Why is this song AT NUMBER 70? Has no one listened to Metallica's classic debut, Kill 'Em All? People need to get their ears cleaned and their ears sharpened! This is THE best Metallica song and there is no doubt about it!
This really should be in the top 10. PEOPLE LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND BE AMAZED! No really
Why is this masterpiece not in the Top 10? I don't get it! No other Metallica song has such a power like this one!V10 Comments
It's not a Metallica it's a queen cover. But queen did this song like a bunch pansies! Metallica made this song good! This is the best cover on this album!
Crazy cover, probably my favourite of Garage Inc. It has some INSANE drumming - BeeBlueV1 Comment
It calls back so well to Master of Puppets and...And Justice For All while still retaining its own unique sound. Definitely not comparable to Master of Puppets or One, but very good. Lars' fast-paced drumming, both Kirk and James' chugging were very strong, and even Robert's matching bass line was very good. And SUCH a catchy hook. Best song easily on the album, and at least since...And Justice For All. Anything off of Metallica has nothing on this song.
One of the best metallica songs ever made! If it was on an album from the 80's it would be hailed as one of the greatest
This song is amazing. One of the best metallica songs ever made! Will definitely be in the top ten greatest metallica songs soon!
This is great! 30th placeV17 Comments
Great song about James Hetfield's alcoholism. Definitely needs to be much higher. It is very underrated and should at least be in the top 50
Slither is better than this?! Never! This is the best song from the Beyond Magnetic EP. Should be at top 30 at least
Beyond magnetic is a terrible album! All these songs suck! But I do like the meaning of this song.V1 Comment
Just an epically-amazing song, and is by far their most underrated song. The build-up, the amazing main riff, the bass carrying the verses, the Bridge that you can't help but sing with, and two great solos. What else could you ask for?
The best song on load and by far one of Metallica's most underrated songs. Amazing lyrics.
Awesome guitar solo by Kirk, great slow building riff, atmospheric background sounds
Amazing song, one of the best song from the second half of 90'sV6 Comments
Amazing bass intro should be top 10! Cliff Burton days Were the best But there other stuff is still amazing!
69th, really. This is a good bass solo. Pretty much the "Eruption" of Metallica. A good song, and pretty much one of the reasons why Cliff Burton was Metallica's best member. Also because he did a good job writing the songs on Ride The Lightning, except for Trapped Under Ice and Escape. I'm just glad this is above the horrible My Apocalypse.
Why kill em all songs so damn low... This is cliff burton were talking about anaesthesia!V3 Comments
This song is awesome!
Maybe not a top 10 but it really should be far more up on the list.
Awesome song, not so freaked, no amazing solos but, I don't know why, I love it!
Hell. I never went beyond "Turn The Page" in Garage Inc. But, when I just recently heard this one, I could not help playing it over and over again. Especially, when they grunt out that "Hey! ", O my god, you feel like screaming out loud with it!
Hate this songV7 Comments
Amazing Iron Maiden cover... But why not in top 50's?V1 Comment
Great song from death magnetic...
And my favourite also... It was also my first Metallica song now I have all song...
Most original on Death Magnetic
Have you heard the riff on this song. Its amazingly difficult to play and sounds almost as good as creeping deaths second riff
Another good song from the album. May not be the greatest but still good. - LightningBladeV5 Comments
Iced Honey is the only good song from Lulu. Not including this song, the whole album is horrible! - johnp
Extremely underrated most people don't know what it is, so it probably won't get higher than 50 but still listen its awesome - the-rate-it-guy
Sweet Amber does not have a solo
None of songs on st. Anger have solos! This song is not all that good! Near the bottom of my list!
I would go as far and say that this is the best Metallica song ever.
The guitars and the bass is so perfect in this track, by far the best on the black album.
Higher! It's just a cool song and definitely better than others above.
I just love the part when the three guitars come in after the bass
Come on! This song should be higher than 75! Probably the "thrashiest" song on the black album. Pretty much everything about this song is awesome! Especially the solo and the bass part! Vote.
Its not the best Metallica song. It's around the number 40-45 spot on my list.V6 Comments
Why isn't this song n the top 20's? Still Wondering! M 14 But Metal For Life! METALLICA METALLiCa MetallICA! Then Make me miss you! Total Competition to Master Of Puppets! Amazing Music!
Carpe Diem Baby should be in the top 30's in my opinion. Amazing music! One of the best songs on ReLoad, if not THE best song on ReLoad! I like the groove in this song!
This song is awesome. Should be higher than 95! At least in the top 30's. I love pretty much everything about this song. The solo sounds very awesome in this song. I also love the groove to this one! Please vote.
I really enjoy this song. Sick tune. Really underrated.V5 Comments
The song has a fantastic melody of chorus! THIS BLOODY DAY I LOST MY WAY! GREAT RIFF!
This track is good. It is one of the better tracks on Load. Too bad it is so underrated.
The riff is so good and the meaning of the song is just scary. should be way higher on the list
This song is so awesome! Why ain't it in the top 10?V2 Comments
I can't believe this song is this far down the list! GREAT SONG!
It's this far down on the list because it's a cover.
