Top Ten Classic Rock Songs that Would Sound Good as a Metal Song

The Top Ten

1 Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

This is the only song on the original remix I would agree with.
For this list we need songs with less Rock N Roll, blues and pop. And we need songs with more classical influences. I would try some songs by bands like Queen, Uriah Heep, Heart and Pink Floyd. - Metal_Treasure

2 We Will Rock You - Queen We Will Rock You - Queen
3 Barracuda - Heart Barracuda - Heart

This song is almost metal and it will be easy to modify it a little bit. - Metal_Treasure

4 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
5 Revolution - The Beatles Revolution - The Beatles

Would be a great speed metal song - somekindofaguy

6 Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry

This song could never ever become a metal song as there's too much RNR. It's a big mistake to think that you can take any song and by playing it faster and louder you get metal. Songs with too much blues (Led Zeppelin), pop (The Beatles), RNR (Chuck Berry) can't be turned into metal easy because you have to remove many things and add many other things. The result would be a completely different song so you may not recognise the original. - Metal_Treasure
