6Before I Forget - Slipknot
7One - Metallica

One is actually underrated compared to Master of Puppets. - DarkenedBrutality

Master of Puppets is WAAYY more overrated than this masterpiece.

The Contenders

11Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
12Ten Thousand Fists - Disturbed
13Jekyll and Hyde - Five Finger Death Punch
14Master of Puppets - Metallica

People act like this is the greatest song of all time, making Stairway to Heaven look like crap, and I'm just sitting here knowing that this isn't even the best Metallica song, or even the best from the album. I even made a blog post about 5 out of many songs better than this. - DarkenedBrutality

This should be higher on the list, and One shouldn't be on this list.

I agree, this isn't there best song. Though this song is great, but still its overrated - zxm

15Raining Blood - Slayer

Good song, but there are much more heavier songs than this.

16You've Got Another Thing Comin' - Judas Priest
17The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin
18Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
19Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold
20Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
