The Top Ten

1 Peace Sells - Megadeth

This is probably my favorite Megadeth song but I added Holy Wars, too. - Metal_Treasure

I listen to it a lot,you can never have enough of this, never - Ananya

2 One - Metallica

This single defines every thing about Metallica, echo -y guitar!, reverb y drums, it's mesmerising. - Ananya

3 The Trooper - Iron Maiden

It's actually historical, so I'm not too sure what it's doing on this list. - Metalhead1997

4 Holy Wars...The Punishment Due - Megadeth
5 War Pigs - Black Sabbath
6 Some Heads Are Gonna Roll - Judas Priest
7 Chemical Warfare - Slayer
8 Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine

10 Child In Time - Deep Purple

Timeless classic, great vox and solo - Metal_Treasure

The Newcomers

? Civil War - Guns N' Roses

The Contenders

11 Doesn't Matter Anyway - Savatage

A great song about the immorality of weapon industry and how those people deliver weapons to the both sides of a conflict.

"So you'll need some weapons? That's what I'm here for!
Seems you got us a war
AK-47, Tomcat, F-11 hardly ever used, tell me what am I bid? "

"It's all for sale, what's your side? You couldn't say...
No... Doesn't matter anyway" - Metal_Treasure

12 Disposable Heroes - Metallica

"Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
Left to death with inly friend, alone I clench my gun." - Metalhead1997

I WAS BORN FOR DYING! m/

13 Blood On Your Hands - Primal Fear

Musically, this is one of my favorite songs from this band - the riff, drumming, etc.
I think this song is anti-Hitler (because the band is German) but it could be about any world leader of this type:

"I will always condemn this
Even with my final breath

God save us from the stupid leaders
Who lead a million souls to death". - Metal_Treasure

14 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down
15 Dogs of War - Motorhead
16 War Ensemble - Slayer
17 Poor Man's Crusade - Demons & Wizards

A very cool song about the Crusades in a bit of a mocking tone.

"Jerusalem is waiting for you
To rise once again

So we will slaughter in the name of Christ
Holy Father, Holy Father" - Metal_Treasure

18 Rooster - Alice In Chains
19 Warbird - Annihilator
20 Mandatory Suicide - Slayer

Beautiful song with strong lyrics - Ananya
