Best Songs on Metallica's Hardwired... to Self Destruct


The Top TenXW

1Spit Out The Bone

This is a killer! I love the riffs, solo and of course vocals.

Loved the song as soon as I heard the riffs at the beginning of the song.

One of the best songs on one of Metallica's best albums since Load. - Mumbizz01

"Hardwired" used to be number 1 until this song came out - Metalthomas

2Moth into Flame

This song is a lot better than Hardwired in my opinion, but both are amazing. Yet I don't know why this list was created so soon, only 2 songs have been released. - Kytotoxic

Why are you making this list and another for Korn's The Serenity Of Suffering, even they neither of them came out yet? - NikBrusk

This song reminds me of My Apocalypse from Death Magnetic. - IronSabbathPriest

Best song about self-destruction ever! - Metalthomas

It's their best song should be number 1

4Halo on Fire

This is the closest thing the album has to a ballad, and it's awesome.

5Atlas, Rise

Best Metallica song in years in my opinion

Outstanding... The chorus is killer and the harmony iron maidenish part is amazing

6Dream No More

Reminds me of Sad But True and The Thing That Should not be

7Now That We're Dead

This is the best song on the album, followed by Spit Out The Bone

8Am I Savage?
9Here Comes Revenge

This album has some amazing songs like moth, spit, hardwired, atlas and halo, however this is a real grower and should be higher than its current position.

Sounds like a song from Megadeth's Countdown to Extinction, except James Hetfield collaborated with the band and he ends up singing.

10Lords of Summer

I hope this goes higher up on the list because it really is one of the best in my opinion, I think they improved massively upon the original back in 2014 and James' vocals are the best on the album here - Derrick_Fox

The Contenders

12Murder One

Somewhat like Megadeth's Captive Honour but without the court of the king (not crimson king).

A great song. Should be higher. Best of the album!


Amazing album...Confusion could be one of those underrated songs,

This should be a lot higher. Well done Metallica

This should be top 5 at the very least

14Remember Tomorrow
15When a Blind Man Cries

Not a actual song on the album, but this cover is starts slow but gets heavier near the end. That's why I like this song cover. - Mumbizz01

16Ronnie Rising Medley
