Best Dio Songs

The Top Ten
1 Holy Diver Holy Diver Cover Art

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.

I completely agree that this is his best song. This song is truly a joy to listen to every time I hear it.

I think it's better than Rainbow in the Dark because this one has a better riff and a better solo.

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

2 Rainbow in the Dark Rainbow in the Dark Cover Art

Rainbow in the Dark should have been on top. Excellent Guitar and sound effects. It will always be my favorite Dio song of all time. Thanks Ronnie James and the entire Dio band.

Definitely the most amazing song by Ronnie James Dio. A great song anyone would enjoy hearing again and again.


Deserves to be here but if this list was ranked "top ten dio solos", top from all ears. GO DIO!

Kick ass songs, in my opinion of the greatest songs of hard rock and heavy metal

3 The Last in Line The Last in Line Cover Art

Holy divers got the better riff. But this is the better song. Probably the greatest heavy metal song of all time.

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

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

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

4 Don't Talk to Strangers Don't Talk to Strangers Cover Art

Always gives me an orgasm when I hear this song don't even have to touch

Definitely the darkest Ronnie Dio song with an incredible solo.

I love this song, the lyrics are some of the best ever

One of the greatest heavy metal songs EVER!

5 Lock Up the Wolves Lock Up the Wolves Cover Art

6 Stand Up and Shout Stand Up and Shout Cover Art

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.

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.

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

7 We Rock We Rock Cover Art

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

Amazing Riff, hard and fast drums and an unbelievable voice. Do u need more?

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

I love this song, this is the first dio song I ever heard.

8 Egypt (The Chains are On) Egypt (The Chains are On) Cover Art

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?

9 All the Fools Sailed Away All the Fools Sailed Away Cover Art

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.

10 Wild One Wild One Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Rock 'n' Roll Children Rock 'n' Roll Children Cover Art

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

Undoubtedly the best dio song

12 Strange Highways

Come on, this has such a doomed-to-death feel to it, such a powerful song, the tempo, vocals, everything. Astounding song.

Not a fan of the whole album however the doom of this song is so good! It has a dirty slow pace which just works so well for it

13 Twisted Twisted Cover Art
14 Sacred Heart Sacred Heart Cover Art

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!

One of the best songs from Dio. Deserve to be higher.

Should be number 2!

15 My Eyes My Eyes Cover Art

Best of the best this is amazing

Oh Lord this song is amazing!

16 Mystery Mystery Cover Art

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.

17 Between Two Hearts Between Two Hearts Cover Art
18 One Night in the City One Night in the City Cover Art

Dio cam Aldo write non-fantasy lyrics Chile still Samsung epic with great storytelling

It is totally one of the top ten

19 Walk on Water Walk on Water Cover Art
20 Long Live Rock 'N' Roll Long Live Rock 'N' Roll Cover Art
21 Gates of Babylon Gates of Babylon Cover Art
22 Dream Evil Dream Evil Cover Art

This song's lyrics include rainbows and dreams and it has a keyboards and a robotic/distorted voice effect -- that's pure 80's DIO. I lost a bet that this song was on one of the A Nightmare on Elm Street soundtracks.

Lol 25. Wow no true Dio here.

Holy Diver and Dream Evil are the probably best songs of RJ. DIO... RIP.

1- diver
2- strangers
4- rainbow
5- line

23 Hungry for Heaven Hungry for Heaven Cover Art

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.

Saved my life

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
