Top Ten Lines In Rock Music

Alpha101

The Top TenXW

1"Hold my breath as I wish for death. Please God help me!" - One

Beautiful song and Metallica's best. Very sad and depressing, but also very true. - Alpha101

2"Vengeance from the grave. Kills the people he once saved!" - Iron Man

Black Sabbath's best and most well known song. Has an amazing riff and fantastic lyrics. - Alpha101

3"...that you can't trust freedom when it's not in your hands, when everybody's fighting for their promised land." - Civil War

A very underrated Guns N Roses song, and possibly the best anti-war song ever made. - Alpha101

4"On they fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?" - For Whom The Bell Tolls

Another Metallica masterpiece. This pretty much sums up war in a few words. - Alpha101

5"Life down there is just a strange illusion." - Hallowed Be Thy Name

Easily Iron Maiden's best song, and you can see why. The lyrics are very deep and unique. - Alpha101

6"Blood is like wine. Unconscious all the time." - Machinehead

I've always liked this song, but it is the only song by Bush that I have heard. Might have to check them out sometime... - Alpha101

7"For every moment of truth, there's confusion in life" - Heaven and Hell, Black Sabbath

So true. Dio wasn't only a great singer, he was also a great poet. This is my favorite Black Sabbath song - music, vox and lyrics are awesome. - Metal_Treasure

8“Don't write in starlight 'cause the words may come out real … Don't smell the flowers - they're an evil drug to make you lose your mind” - Don't Talk to Strangers, Dio
9"I found it hard, it's hard to find. Oh well, whatever, never mind." - Smells Like Teen Spirit

Absolutely love Nirvana, and this song is their most popular. - Alpha101

The Contenders

11"The Holy Ghost can't save you anymore, Your soul's condemned to burn in Hell, damned for all time" - Poor Man's Crusade, Demons & Wizards

It's about the Crusades in a bit of a mocking tone. Love this song - cool riffing, great vox, chorus, everything. Many cool lines in this song.
"So we will slaughter in the name of Christ. Holy Father, Holy Father" - Metal_Treasure

12"Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?" - Bohemian Rhapsody

I absolutely adore Queen, and this song is possibly the best of all time. - Alpha101

13"We have the power make our lives what they ought to be, reconnect with our humanity” - Anthem, Iced Earth

The whole song is very inspirational. Cool melody, great vox. - Metal_Treasure

14"Generals gathered in their masses. Just like witches at black masses." - War Pigs

Very popular song, and also very true. - Alpha101

Second best song of all time in my book. - Alpha101
