Man this song is incredible and deserves 3rd after Stairway to Heaven, and The Unforgiven. This song is long, 7:27, including beautiful guitaring, about 5 guitar solos including one of the greatest of all time. It has moving lyrics, about the the terrors of war and someone who was injured in battle. The song, has two parts, the first being graceful and beautiful, while the second part is powerful and inspiring. It is also very creative with machine-gun drumming, crazy solos, and and powerful ending.
Satin finish huffing kindergarten dropouts with down syndrome must have come up with this list. From 1 to 30, the only 2songs that even deserve consideration are Bohemian Rhapsody& this "One", so I picked this b/c it was groundbreaking&the 1st music video of any substance. A real top10... 1)Every Grain of Sand-Bob Dylan 2)Halleaujah-Jeff Buckley 3)Yesterday-Beatles 4)Accidentally Like a Martyr-Warren Zevon 5)Misguided Angel-Cowboy Junkies 6)Ro
Beyond epic, this song is the pinnacle of power ballads and songs that take longer than 3:20 in general. One emphasises the meaning taken from a book and the music video contains footage from the film (Johnny Got His Gun). It shows the plight of a man who is injured and the only way he is able to communicate with people is morse code via hitting is head on the pillow (he has no arms/legs/lips) and wishes for death or as a symbol of the damage of war. The meaning of this song is striking. I hope it lives up to its name.
I LOVE THIS SONG! THIS HAS GOT TO MOST DEFINITELY THE BEST METALLICA AND... What?! BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY IS HIGHEST?! Here is my list:
1 One - Metallica
2 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
3 Smells like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
4 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

I RATE IT 10/10! NO, 1000/1000! I WATCHED THE MUSIC VIDEO OF IT AND IT IS A VERY GREAT SONG!
very powerful song. theh guitar and drums are amazing. it has a really nice and cool riff going on. the lyrics are overwhelming, they just get into your soul. the solo is insane. James's voice sounds just great. it really is such an incredible and exciting song. definitely one of the best songs of all time.
This Song is the best song of metallica, and yes, One of the best ever made. There's One of the best Solo's ever made, the instrumental chords are been put perfect together, a beautiful text, etc... It deserves a 3th place... Thank you god for making Metallica!
Even if Metallica's not my favorite band, this is definitely the best song ever. Amazing instruments & vocals. Lyrics are amazing & don't do anything like bash religions or emos or anything, they just get a good topic many can relate to & stick with it.
What a song! Superb music.. It almost screams and cries in you ears.. Riveting drums.. Heart wrenching theme.. Just powerful!
Love this song, all of it, from the second it starts to the end, but one part of the song that just blows my mind, "arkness Imprisoning me, all I see, absolute horror, I cannot live I cannot die, Trapped in myself, body my only cell" Just awesome!
Well I can fill a whole book just appreciating this song. There are only two songs on this list that have guitar solo comparable to this one(STH and HC). Just deserves much more appreciation and proper listening though james didn't give perfect vocals. And one more thing Bohemian is NOT and can NEVER BE the greatest song.
Wow. This song is amazing, from beginning to end. Whoever voted for Stairway needs to get their head out of their ass. That song is far too overrated, alongside Jimmy Page and his guitar playing.

Metallica deserves the gold medal on this one.
One is simply awsome. The way Kirk takes his guitar from slow and barely consious to hardcore ripping and haed bashing solo is simply amazing. The lyrics also speak to me. How he wishes to be able to move and begging for help... perfect.
This is a great song and has great vocals and a good guitar solo. Also I love the job lars did on the drums. Metallica has always been one of my favorite bands. One last thing, why the hell is Earth song number 3 when michael jackson obviously has better songs.
This song is best in this list and it is also better than METALLICA. ONE should be number 1.
full credit goes to KIRK AND JAMES extraordinary vocals.
THANK YOU METALLICA, hope you provide more better songs like ONE.
METALLICA [FOREVER]
EPIC SONG FROM A GREAT METAL BAND
ALL OF THEIR SONGS ARE GREAT FULL OF FEELINGS ABUNDANCE, BUT THIS SONG IS GREAT AND POWERFULL ESPECIALLY WHITH LARS SPEED DRUMMING
This is great song, and it should be at higher place, at least third. Emotions that spreads through the whole song are stunning, and so eye-opening... Wonderful.
Best version is live with the San Fransisco Symphony Orchestra. Beautiful and haunting at first and yet closes with those awesome machine gun riffs and amazing solos. Great song, great subject matter, just all round spectacular
Really? G'n'R is great, but metallica composes there music so much better, especially on One, I can't control everybody, but I think people look over Metallica and metal in general, because its well, metal. And why is my chemical romance on this list, like seriously what.
It's a powerful song that has a heavy meaning and the way that the music transitions from slow to fast with the double bass pedal is one of the greatest parts of any song (same with fade to black which is actually my favorite song)
Truly, The Best song ever composed by the best band in this world. Every time I listen to it, it gives me chills. Possibly one of the best and most creative guitar solo. A song which gave heavy metal a fresh and much needed charge.
Great song. Many guitar solos (including one of the best ones ever), meaningful lyrics, great riffs. Starts smooth, with short heavy parts at the chorus. Then it goes pretty crazy, with a very fast riff and double bass drumming, to finally end in an explosive guitar solo.
Let's move 'Tallica up the list! Not only is this song amazing, but so is everything from their first 5 albums and their comeback album Death Magnetic! Waitin' on their new album, which will blow us all away! ONE for the win!
the 1st metallica song I ever listened to was one. then st anger. then enter sandman. then I bought... and justice for all. then I bought the black album, master of puppets and st anger. one just sent me in 2 a metallica craze!
One is simply amazing and very moving, and the transition to the (simply amazing) solo is just fantastic. I think how they fitted 3 or 4 solos that get progressively harder is cool, and I like the simple and epic theme of it
This is definently entitled to the best song ever. sure eddie van halen could rip at incredible speed and randy was a master guitarist but sometimes it is not always about speed. its about about how you play. rock on kirk
