The Top Ten

The Day That Never Comes
Slow and melodic at the start, fast and headbanging from the middle. Perfect metallica!
it should be in the first place. the final solo is amazing and no comments for James vocal.
Love the chorus drums, verse's bass, james' voice and solo's guitar... Metallica ROCKS
[Newest]These guys are in their 50's and still kick ass.

2All Nightmare Long
Amazing song from an amazing album. Really, really rough, and the lyrics just add to the feeling.
Go's hard for the whole 8 minutes! The corus kind on of reminds me of Enter Sandman. It's heavy plus catchy at the same time!
this song brings you back to Metallica's good old days
[Newest]It is gorgeous, James gave all of his energy for this song.

3That Was Just Your Life
Another masterpiece from Metallica. The Riff and the vocal from James is awesome. Should be at the first place. Like A Siren In My Head That Always Threatens To Repeat.
Some of Metallica's greatest riffs ever are on this song, particularly in the intro. This song proves that Metallica can make good thrash metal.
Even though it's from their newest album, it's main riff is one the best Metallica have ever done!

4The Unforgiven III
All time favorite unforgiven is there life from there starting album to there last album in different parts


Are you kidding me? It's the best song in this album... It won Metallica a Grammy too... Okay it may not have such a good riff like All Nightmare Long but still it's the best one in the album...
James' vocals are amazing on this song. The best 'Unforgiven' in my opinion!
[Newest]The best of The Unforgiven trilogy, and the best on Death Magnetic.

This song is so epic! A pure live-grenade. A modern Metal hymn! Vote!
The Drums in this song are amazing
this is a real good song to bang your head to
my favorite off the album


My first one from this album was The Day, but when I heard Cyanide, I knew one of the greatest songs of 2000s! It is absolutely fantastic, more than other songs from this album!

6Suicide & Redemption
Metallica's instrumental songs are always fantastic this should be # 3 at least. One of their best songs out there
No WAY My Apocalypse should be last.
How is this at number 10? This is their best instrumental. (though I like Orion better)

7The Judas Kiss
Only loses to All Nightmare Long.
Great song, with a kickass riff and everything.
I don't really like The Day That Never Comes, its a good ballad, but nothing compared to stuff like Fade to Black and One.
The riff during the chorus is one of Hetfield's best and one of the best Metallica riffs of all time.


Unforgiven 3 is the best Metallica song from any album. The feels, the solo, the touching vocals. Should be number 1 on any Metallica related top ten.

8Broken, Beat & Scarred
This song gets me pumped up like nothing else. It literally makes me want to break my body when I'm in the gym doing a high intensity workout. Amazing filling.
Its the story of Metallica this past Decade.
SHOW YOUR SCARS! best line ever.


It's different of anything you've seem and that's a kind of thing I appreciate

9The End of the Line
This is really one of the best songs from this album. It has a really nice riff, catchy lyrics and a sweet solo.


It should be at top 3 iam shocked how this master-piece is at 10th place. Electrifying work of guitar and hard lyrics
Not bad, lags a little bit, but the solo sounds pretty cool

10My Apocalypse
its simply the best song made by metallica
Not my favorite but its definitely not the worst on this album


It's NOT the best but it's good.
