Best Heavy Metal Songs Since 1990
The Top Ten
I had to add this.
Why is it not in here? You people have no taste. - RusekuCozan
the entire song is sweet. - schwanie
How is this so high? The sing is SO repetitive. You listen to it once and then it gets boring. The 6 songs below this are all better.
Come on could it really be anything else for number 1V 2 Comments
Nothing like Enter Sandman (btw I like enter sandman to! ).
Fear of the Dark has a riff that doesn't sick as Enter Sandman.
Love Metallica & Iron Maiden! - joaocarvalho
I don, t like old heavy metal like Metallica, Judas, others... But this song is so strong as old heavy metal one but Enter Sandman is great one too! - nooreldeen
How can Metallica be number 1 this song is legendary and completely owns enter sandman UP THE IRONS FROM SCOTLAND
Can't believe it's in second place, that is truly a masterpiece and should be heard at least once by anybody.V 7 Comments
This is an all time classic and it should be on the top 3 cause it is still one of the best songs in all of heavy metal history and I think it deserves #1 position. And if you still have an objection then go and listen to it - amitcornelius1
This song is insane! Especially the intro! - fireinside96
The drum in the start is awesome, Overall a great song
Its not about since 1990, it's the all time best heavy metal song...V 4 Comments
WALK! Why is Chop Suey higher? That song is the biggest piece of trash in the last 20 years - 1029384756
This song should be 1 but enter sandman is a good song - GodsNameIsDime
Amazing band. I had trouble picking which song of their I liked the best.
I don't get how a song this good is doing third, I mean seriously.V 3 Comments
1. Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth (second best metal song ever, only behind "One")
2. Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold (best metal song of 21st century for me)
3. Guerrilla Radio - Rage Against The Machine (I'm not sure if it's a metal enough to count in for this list, but if it is, it's my 3rd)
4. Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold (second best from the best metal band of 21st century)
5. Domination - Pantera (my favourite Pantera song, one of the most energetic and heaviest metal song I liked)
6. Sudden Death - Megadeth (that guitarwork...)
7. Haunted - Disturbed (in my opinion second best metal band of 21st century and that is their best song for me)
8. Cemetary Gates - Pantera (one of my favorite metal ballads... really beautiful)
9. Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold (third best from a7x)
10. Enter Sandman - Metallica (the best song on self titled Metallica's record... badass riffs and vocals)
That intro. That riff. That Spanish acoustic solo. That Mustaine Solo. That Outro.
It is criminal that Enter Sandman is above THE Megadeth song: Holy Wars.
How isn't this number 1?
It should be number1
Whoever made this list has good taste.
1. Chop Suey!
2. B. Y. O. B.
3. Toxicity - moose4life19
the most variety you could enjoy out of a single song... AMAZING - metaniac
This song was sent down to earth by satan after he heard some goat called justin beiber singing... Bebebebe... And he himself drummed!
Laynes voice is amazing and the bassline is one of the best I've heard!
It is not possible... It should be at no 2 after enter sandman. Metallica all songs should be in this list and black album is best album its all songs are perfect... Sad but TRUE, the unforgiven and many more...
Best metal balad ever!
I know this is 1990 but so is painkiller so this should count. just listen to the precison and awesome playing in this song - lezakattack
Chop Suey! is really amazing, but the lyrics are all screwed up, so I'll have to go with Toxicity. BEST DRUM BEAT EVER! - moose4life19
best song ever. EVER. best album aswell!
This is a masterpiece - Lem
Amazing opening riff and solos.
wtf why was this not on here I don't care if you like the song or not, its not my favorate song by them anyway but admit its got one of the most classic drum beats in history - Sabres18
Song is epic. simple as that.
Awesome song!. It should be at least in the top 5. Vocals are just Sick! And the Riffs are just incredible.
One of the best Metallica songs 2 date! - imagesk8r6969
The Last Fight is my favorite song ever =)
Great riff, awesome solo and powerful vocals.
This is a masterpiece and should be higher.
I LOVE ITTT
Since 1990, not before. Can you not read - sextysex
A great comment is written here. This song is very good, and Maynard's lyrics are amazing as always. Though this is not by far the best Tool song, it certainly has a very special thing about it, which makes you want to listen to it over and over. From a drummers view, this song isn't the best. I was very disappointed when I heard this as the opening song to Lateralus, as this song doesn't have very many original fills or beats. Though it grew on me over a period of time, and it's now one of my favorite songs to play. Plus the ending just sells this song. Amazing ending. One of my favorite endings to a Tool song ever.
