The Top Ten

1 Holy Diver

1. Holy Diver
2. Rainbow In The Dark
3. Don't Talk To Strangers
4. Stand Up And Shout
5. We Rock

Yeah! This Dio classic is on its right position. This song is an epic heavy metal song and it features a 'Dioan' style of singing and the guitar riffs and solo are very excellent. Don't forget the drum beats heard around the song. Dio is at his best in this song. Rock On.

this song is my favorite and it will remain my favorite through out my life...

Out of this world!

3 The Last in Line

One of the best metal songs of all time. Awesome vocals, great story telling, tempo changes, its got it all.

"If we're evil or divine" 3 st. Is the due position

I think that's one of the best metal songs. Remember: "If we're evil or devine we're the last in line! "

Very good especially the intro

4 Don't Talk to Strangers

One of the greatest heavy metal songs EVER! - blinkr735

Definitely the darkest Ronnie Dio song with an incredible solo.

5 Lock Up the Wolves

Best song! Classic Dio (RIP) Also I'm sorry to point out that the Gates of Babylon song should be in Rainbow 's top ten...

Epic song that is very underrated.

One of my top 5 Dio songs

1. Holy Diver
2. Rainbow In The Dark
3. The Last in Line
4. Lock Up The Wolves
5. Stand Up And Shout
6. Egypt (The Chains are on)
7. Dream Evil

6 We Rock

Great song by Dio should definitely be third or fourth up there with Holy Diver and Rainbow in the Dark. Why? Because it rocks!

Awesome tempo, nice and thrashy and proves Dio makes some of the best ever metal

Norther - We Rock is even better

This song has everything, great drums, guitar, vocals, speed.
Love this song.

7 Stand Up and Shout

Truly an amazing song, should be way higher than this. One of my favorites and will remain throughout life

My favorite Dio song. My favorite Dio album. And my favorite album artwork. RIP Dio, metal god.

Truly #1.
This song is the best Dio song (not counting his work at Rainbow)
The best Ronnie James Dio song is kill the king from Rainbow.
But from the band Dio this is #1 without a doubt followed by We rock, Last in line and Holy diver.

All I see is Holy Diver and The Last in Line albums. this song is the best over all of it. vocals are awesome and Vivian Campbell did outstanding. needs to be #1

8 Sacred Heart

Dio has many killer tunes, but this is my favorite. It needs more credit. Good lyrics and good tunes. What more do I really need to say? This song is epic!

Powerful... Just a great heavy metal song. Awesome vocals, great guitar, Dio rules!

9 Rock 'n' Roll Children

Undoubtedly the best dio song

If there was a "top underrated dio songs" rock n roll children was number 1.

10 All the Fools Sailed Away

A seven minute masterpiece that has yet to be outdone by any artist. The mood changed, the weird keys in the middle.. All amazing

One of my favorite songs ever. A true masterpiece.

The Newcomers

? Catch the Rainbow

Why is this song so underrated? It's pure beauty

It's the best song ever he made.

? Night People

The Contenders

11 Mystery

This song is so special and mysterious, but it pretends to shed light to the mysteries, opening the minds and advising that "It's always a mystery, not what it seems to be" recommending us not to be confident in this strange live where we live. And it does it perfectly with excellent lyrics and excellent keyboard parts such as they do in Rainbow In The Dark.

12 Egypt (The Chains are On)

Best song DIO has ever produced, it has that magical flow about it that's just unquestionable. Ronnies vocals are amazing as always.

Epic track blending power and mysticism that epitomises RJ Dio

My Top 10:
10. Mystery
9. The Last In Line
8. We Rock
7. Lock Up The Wolves
6. All The Fools Sailed Away
5. Sacred Heart
4. Don't Talk To Strangers
3. Holy Diver
2. Egypt (The Chains Are On)
1. Rainbow In The Dark
RIP Ronnie James Dio. One of the best metal vocalists of all time.
Am I the only one who thinks the Ozzy era of Black Sabbath is better than the Dio one, but prefers Dio's solo career to Ozzy's and also really loves Rainbow?

13 King of Rock and Roll
14 Wild One
15 Between Two Hearts
16 This Is Your Life

This one of most favorite dio song, this song is so beautiful! Ronnie did a amazing job with this song, it has also made a point, like this is your life you are not going to be here forever, do what you desire and be happy:).

17 Hungry for Heaven

I can't believe hungry for Heaven is not on the top ten, this song this the reason I listen to Dio, if you like rainbow in the dark you will like this one

Just give this one a listen... In my opinion it should replace Sacred Heart. It should be your opinion too.

This song really needs to be higher. It's really good. - Element119

Saved my life

18 Gates of Babylon
19 One Night in the City

It is totally one of the top ten

20 Vooodoo

This is from the Black Sabbath album The Dio Years. This is a great song. It's somewhat dark like Black Sabbath and it's got the killer voice of Ronnie James Dio. But overall, it's just a great song.R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio. We will miss you.
