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


The Top TenXW

1Satisfaction - 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

2We Will Rock You - Queen
3Barracuda - Heart

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

4Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
5Revolution - The Beatles

Would be a great speed metal song - somekindofaguy

6Johnny 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

8Easy Livin' - Uriah Heep

Changing a little bit with the lyrics and the vocals, and this would be a fine death metal song - somekindofaguy
