Because of the killer opening and middle solos. Beast!
Because it's ferocious, technical, and brutalises every song on here - plus I'm sick of propping up Maiden fans.
Because the only reason to own Deftone's album White Pony is to have Maynard James Keenan whispering you into a false sense of security, then bring the house down with the best chorus he's ever written. Venomous!
Because this is Hetfield's baby, thru and thru, and it is a tremendous ballad with a big heart, and his closing solo is a moving one.
Corey Taylor killing it lyrically and vocally in a moving tribute to love and loss.
Anselmo demonstrating that the guy can still sing with equal parts emotion and gusto.
Because it's their most crushing track.
The kings of progressive metal back in the day delivering their epic masterpiece. Timeless.
This track was a worldwide metal classic way back when, and whilst they're essentially a hard rock outfit, Headhunter was a metal album - one of my first.
Yeah, I'm bored of it too. But there's no doubt about it being one of netal's finest tracks.
Yes, it's a punk track, but on the remake they toughen this up to an aggressive metal track. Just one Pepsi, that's all I wanted, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me...
Of course it's traditional. It's 30-years old and thrash is 35-years old, which means thrash is more traditional than most forms of metal. Pfft!
