Most Underrated Metallica Songs


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41My Friend of Misery

Such a good song, it's a shame it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Top 3 off of The Black Album.
Other underrated songs are '...And Justice For All' and 'King Nothing'

42King Nothing

This should be much higher than 17. Great song, great lyrics, great chorus. One my favourite Metallica songs.

This is my favorite Metallica song! And it's very underrated! Makes me sick!

Every song from Load is underrated, just because it's not Thrash

43Shoot Me Again

45I Disappear

Such a great song but because it wasn't released on an album its not heard enough


This is a great song but very underrated! I like this song, apparently no one seems to enjoy this song. Pretty much everyone I know that likes Metallica don't know about this song.


This is one of Metallicas biggest hits! So how is it underrated?

48The Shortest Straw

This song is overrated! I can't stand this song! It makes me want to destroy my copy of...and justice for all! Terrible song!

Amazing guitar playing my favorite song on... And justice for all (besides one) obviously

This song is so awesome! Especially the riff!

49(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth

YES UNDERRATED! Best instrumental ever!

50Devil's Dance
51The Four Horsemen

I actually think this song is a little overrated. It's just not as good as some of the other songs! It just doesn't impress me that much.

This is the best song from kill em all. Please vote up! - ashikkumar

52Poor Twisted Me

Awesome song I think! Underrated though... Some of the songs shouldn't even be on here. Fade To Black, Enter Sandman, etc.

Great song but very underrated. In my opinion, it is one of my favorite songs off of the Load/ReLoad era.

54Low Man's Lyric

I really love this. Very deep lyrics, love the acoustic sounds, and most of all, it shows of James's vocal capabilities

58All Nightmare Long

This song is quite famous but doesn't get the credit it deserves. by far the best chorus Metallica have made.
St. anger is also underrated. but the most underrated song I feel is Judas Kiss. It's a brilliant song and its actually a Metallica great.

This must be one of Metallica's best ever. Don't get why it gets so little attention.

I agree famous but gets no credit!

59The House Jack Built

Dark, and unlike anything else Metallica has ever done.

This is fantastic, until Hetfield butchers it around 4:17

The whole song is great! Love it and it is underrated!

60Wherever I May Roam

My second favorite Metallica song!

Wherever I May Roam is one of the greatest songs of the Black Album and Metallica as Band, yeah I know it have comercial and critical succes, but among fans it�'s most common hear about Fade to Black, Blackened or Hit the lights than Wherever I May Roam

How Orion is Underrated? Many people say it�'s the "best intrumental song in Metal"
