The Contenders: Page 2

21 Wasted Years - Iron Maiden Wasted Years - Iron Maiden

Yeah, love this one. It's not fantasy-themed, just a great, catchy track about no regrets and appreciating the moment.

22 Primal Concrete Sledge - Pantera Primal Concrete Sledge - Pantera

Because never has the title of a song been so fitting. Dimebag killing it.

23 Metal Gods - Judas Priest Metal Gods - Judas Priest
24 Hell Patrol - Judas Priest Hell Patrol - Judas Priest
25 Iron Man - Black Sabbath Iron Man - Black Sabbath
26 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath
27 Am I Evil? - Diamond Head Am I Evil? - Diamond Head
28 Silent Jealousy - X-Japan
29 Back In Black - AC/DC Back In Black - AC/DC

It's hard rock. Great hard rock, but hard rock nonetheless.

30 Cemetary Gates - Pantera Cemetary Gates - Pantera
31 A Touch of Evil - Judas Priest A Touch of Evil - Judas Priest
32 Gates of Babylon Gates of Babylon
33 July - Katatonia July - Katatonia

This track is so heavy, so moving, and I never tire of it. Spine-tingling stuff from the excellent album The Great Cold Distance.

34 Ghost In the Machine - Like Thieves Ghost In the Machine - Like Thieves

Emotive and crushing from some of the best, though least known, going round. YouTube it.

35 Shadow Moses - Bring Me the Horizon Shadow Moses - Bring Me the Horizon

One of the most venomous and emotive metal tracks I've ever heard. Not even Korn could replicate this fury and these breakdowns. Traditional? Probably not.

36 Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath

Let's keep it traditional then, and keep the die-hards happy with some Sweet Leaf.

37 Children of the Damned - Iron Maiden Children of the Damned - Iron Maiden
38 Flight of Icarus - Iron Maiden Flight of Icarus - Iron Maiden

Man, Iron Maiden were the business on their first 5 classics, and this classic is just one of many.

I think it's a cover, but they own it.
