Top Ten Worst Metallica Songs

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41The Memory RemainsV3 Comments

This is a great song. It reminds me of the Ramones or the Misfits. Very punk form of. Metal.

43The Unforgiven II

This list contains more good songs than bad songs. After listening to albums like Master Of Puppets and Ride The Lightning, listening to the songs of load and reload was like really upsetting. This was the first song I heard off these albums and I still remember how heartbreaking it was to see Metallica do a mediocre work that can only be compared to Green Day or Linkin Park. Thank God all this is history and they and their latest album had some decent songs( Not refering to Lulu).

Absolute disgrace to the original Unforgiven

This song is the only bad song off the album, the other 8 are classics. It is my favorite metallica album! Even better as an overall album than master of puppets. but my two favorite metallica songs are off master of puppets ironically. Master of puppets and welcome home sanitarium are my favorite Metallica songs. But they are the only ones I like off the album. Orion is just in the middle for me.

Can I ask who put this on the list? I'm coming for you.

46Bad Seed

Easily the worst song from the first 4 albums (the ones I like) and the only bad song from those albums. I find it boring. The band hates it as it was a song made because their label forced them to make a more mainstream song.

I love everything about this song. The only complaint I have is that the ending is so repetitive.

Even Metallica hates this song - levtomas1998

I like this song.. - Pony

NOTHING from Metallica's first 4 albums or Death Magnetic is bad.
They all are GOOD or rather GREAT. You people are idiots for voting these songs as worst.

Simply put: this is ridiculous. I love that scream at the end. My 3rd favorite Metallica song, definitely, definitely should not have even THOUGHT of being put here.

Where are u? Are you out of your ' mind... This is the best one. It can be heard in all situations!

It was annoying when Bob Seeger did it but Mullettallica takes it to a whole new low.

54The Unforgiven

Did Helen Keller write this list?

They are all Bad but, Bake This One a Cake!. Horrible,

Extremely repetitive vocals, mediocre solo and just plain awful. How this song got TWO sequel songs I'll never understand. If you want a good Metallica song about emotions, listen to Fade to Black.

This song is so cheesy. The lyrics in this song are really bad and this is sort of a rip-off of Better Than You from the same album. This is the worst Metallica song if we don't include St. Anger, or Garage Inc. , or Lulu...

56Where the Wild Things Are

Every Metallica's song is great but I really hate that. In half of song they sound like drunk. PS. WHY THERE IS MY FRIEND OF MISERY, MASTER OF PUPPETS, SHORTEST STRAW AND THE UNFORGIVEN 2? Are you joking?

I don't understand! There's more good songs than bad on this list. Most of the songs shouldn't be on here! This should be in the top 3! In my opinion, this is one of THE WORST Metallica songs. - johnpaularguelles

57Better Than You

Shouldn't be on here.

58Sad But True

Well, I have something to tell you. It is Sad but True.

I don't even like this song, and it is very overrated. There are many other good songs, but this one sounds like crap.
