The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets
2 The Four Horsemen
3 Peace Sells

My favorite Megadeth song. - Alpha101

Best megadeth song ever. - Disturbedpotato

4 One

My favorite Metallica song. - Alpha101

Most iconic 80s Metallica song!

Has no competition. Simply the best metal song ever made.
If I were to choose the top for this list, it would be something like:
1. One
2. Fade to Black
3. Master of Puppets (really good, but overrated)
4. Phantom Lord (personally, my favorite from Kill 'em All, I really like the Mustaine+Metallica combo)
5. Creeping Death
6. Rattlehead (The best from early megadeth, listen to it. You won't be disappointed. Speed, energy and awesome guitarwork will astonish you.)
7. In My Darkest Hour (second best from early Megadeth, beautiful and moving song)
8. For Whom the Bell Tolls
9. Wake Up Dead (awesome guitarwork)
10. My Last Words (another early Megadeth's gem I'd like to recommend to you)

5 In My Darkest Hour
6 Fade to Black
7 Wake Up Dead
8 Mechanix

Should not of been on here. Do not listen to this song. It is basically "The Four Horsemen". Only faster and with different lyrics.

This is better than The Four Horsemen because this was the way it should've been and was before Metallica had ruined the song.

9 For Whom the Bell Tolls
10 Seek & Destroy


The Contenders

11 Motorbreath
12 These Boots
13 Ride the Lightning
14 The Call of Ktulu
15 Good Mourning / Black Friday
16 I Ain't Superstitious
17 ...And Justice for All

Another song way too low - Disturbedpotato

18 Nothing Else Matters

This is 90s - shouldn't be on the list - Metal_Treasure

Yet, I don't see any songs from Rust in Peace, and this came out later.

19 Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
20 Fight Fire with Fire

Top 5 definitely - Disturbedpotato
