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 UListen to Sample
6 For Whom the Bell Tolls UListen to Sample
7 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.
