Most Underrated Metallica Songs

21To Live Is to Die

It's the first instrumental song of Metallica I've really loved. Most of people think that the best one is Orion, and so it is, but there are also others very important, like To Live Is To Die (and The Call of Ktulu).
To Live Is To Die is the unique song of... And Justice for All that has been written by Cliff Burton (if I am not wrong). This is very underrated, because people prefer Orion and The Call of Ktulu, and its playing in concerts is very rare. That's a pity, because it is the song dedicated to the death of Cliff, despite most of people think it is Orion (they're wrong, 'cause Orion was written completely by Cliff Burton).

Honestly I love all these songs on this list but I had to give some love to this song cause it has mean riffs that Metallica show in this amazing song

My personal favorite song by Metallica, the riff is haunting and it is the perfect memoir for cliff Burton rip.

No terrible song! The worst instrumental Metallica ever made. It makes this album not good.

I don't think people think this is underrated. But it's a great jam! Number 2 on this album! Second to one!

23Don't Tread on Me

I listen to this song almost every day. It's so good yet nobody likes it. I've been riding in the car with friends and we'll be listening to the black album and they'll skip this song! It's such a good song and nobody likes it! Drives me nuts!

24The Thing That Should Not Be

Such a great song, I never knew why it was always said to be a poor song. Not to mention it's based on literature it's also a masterpiece and highly underrated.

Such a good song, it may be repetitive but who cares?

The only reason this song is underrated is because it would probably summon Cthulhu if it was played too often

... Brilliantly evil

This is 2nd Best from Master Of Puppets album!

25No Leaf Clover

Reminds me of a "Whiskey In The Jar" type of song by them... in my opinion this is a top 20 Metallica song at least

Should be WAY HIGHER like 12 because this song...A song to show they can change sound and still be epic!

26Phantom Lord

Apparently, people don't understand the concept of "underrated. " Fade to Black is NOT underrated. Phantom Lord is beyond underrated, no one seems to like it! The into is mind-blowing, I get chills every time!

This is easily my favorite track on Kill em All. The main riff is just amazing. And the lyrics are just awesome

The reason nobody likes this song is cause IT SUCKS!

27Suicide & Redemption

This an awesome intrumental from death magnetic. - dragon13304

The last minute and a half is why it gets my vote

The 4th best instrumental by Metallica.

28The Day That Never Comes

Yes, this song is very underrated. Death Magnetic is the most underrated album of Metallica, this song is so good, that album is so good!
This song has a awesome Guitar Solo. - TheGodOfNewWorld

Solo and power cord drop! One of the best exhibitions of musicianship of any album

29Eye of the Beholder

Really good song from probably my favourite Metallica album, give it a listen.

Has one of the best riffs of Metallica and is highly underrated, last time played 14 of july 1989...

Good song not underrated but a good song.

30That Was Just Your Life

I think it's rating is just right.

31The Judas Kiss
32Ronnie

It's not their best one, not even in my top 20, but it's actually a great song. But why doesn't anyone understand "underrated"? I mean, Orion is better than this but never underrated.

Kill 'Em All is Metallicas greatest album. I just wish more people could understand that

It's a underrated song but ride the lightning is the best Metallica album!

35Frantic

I just listened to the whole album today! This song at first I hated it! But after listening to it again I realized that it's a good song!

Although it's from the st Anger album, which is not supposed to be a very good Metallica album, frantic is a good song. Not awesome. Just good and unique

36Of Wolf and Man

This song is unnoticed just like every other song on this album that wasn't considered one of the Big Five. This is a great song, and one of my favorites in the album.

A great song! But not underrated.

37No Remorse

Great song. The riff starting around 50 seconds and the chorus riff are so awesome! Pure thrash song that never gets enough credit as it deserves

Not a bad song but not a good song. It's not underrated but it's not overrated.

The last two minutes of this song are just wild

38Fixxxer

Who is voting on this list? None of the top songs are 'underrated' by any means. They are some of Metallica's most popular songs. Welcome Home is #9. Really? I've always thought Fixxxer was an undiscovered gem, especially lyrically. Give this song a careful listen. Definitely Metallica's most underrated song.

This song just says a lot to me and I really love it

Terrible song. Why start an album with a song like fuel and end it with fixxxer!? It's not a good song!

39My World

I'm glad this song is underrated because I don't like this song. One reason is because the drums in this song gave me a headache. The other reason is that it doesn't sound too good! Please vote.

40Seek & Destroy

This song is not underrated! It's tradition for Metallica to end a show with this song! So how is it underrated?!

What? This song isn't underrated. It's been played 1419 times live, and it's one of Metallica's most well-known songs.
