Best Heavy Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Walk - Pantera

Ultimate getting pumped song before stepping onto the ice to thrash people!

My all time favorite driving fast song!

It is awesome and you feel the music very nice.

What a great song

22 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

This song is the DEFINITION of heavy metal. Yes, I love Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax (true dark heavy metal bands) as well as 80's classics like AC/DC, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and even 70's bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath (with Ozzy) and Led Zeppelin. But this song simply captures THE SPIRIT of heavy metal. A MASTERPIECE!

If you want a real list of Heavy, you must put this song to first place. This is only song you can freely say "it's the best" I think. It's a classic song at all.
Then, you can place War pigs or children of the grave. And then, its time for vote Motorhead Priest Iron maiden Metallica Megadeth n others..

25 Counterfeit God - Black Label Society
26 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

The first ever heavy metal ballad and still one of the best ones

27 The Hellion / Electric Eye - Judas Priest

How is this all the way at 63? That just isn't right! This song is a classic!
And come on, really? Nickelback? Stone Sour? I like those bands but they aren't metal at all.

Everything you're looking for in a heavy metal song is in this one

Best Priest song ever.

This list is so worng...

28 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

Incorporated Arabian elements, yet still powerful. Smooth, delighted, and power!

In addition, various versions available. All very nicely done!

29 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

Best megadeth song. Ever.

30 Push It - Static X V 1 Comment
31 Call of Ktulu - Metallica
32 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth

Over 15 minutes of pure power metal at it's best!

33 Stargazer - Rainbow

This is top five... You all are lame asses not putting this higher.

34 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

I love master of puppets and hallowed be thy name and I was going to vote for them... But then I saw this sad thing... Just listen to the bass in this song guys... One of maiden's classics... Vote for it, out deserves to be in top ten...

One of the best and most important rock songs of all time, should be top 5 any day

Possibly Iron Maidens best song. Classic.

How can this be at 111? This world really deserves to finally die...

35 Voodoo - Black Sabbath

Heavy metal at its core

36 Cemetary Gates - Pantera

I don't know what to say I just like this song, when I hear the opening guitar section it reminds me of the Canals in Venice Beach, Los Angeles. Dimebag's plays the guitar like a virtuoso.

The vocals and riffs are too powerful to be this low on the list. Should be at least ten. M/

This song should be in the top ten, It's one of Pantera's best.

It's amazing song ever. Why it's in 36

38 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

Very technical and hard to match in skill. It's definitely metal, but heavy metal is such a board genre. This should be included, for sure, in the top 10. Classics are great. But you're missing a lot of these list these days. Take "The Ivory Gates of Dreams" -- there is a lot that needs to be here. You cannot deny this up coming band. It's okay for you to not like them. But you should try a listen to this song...seriously.

Mind blowing


39 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

This song is awesome. The first time I heard this song I instantly downloaded it and then used it to go to sleep. I usually use Iron Maiden The Trooper to go to sleep but this one is even better.

Hey iron maiden fans you gotta kill yourself. This song made me love iron maiden so much. This song's guitar solos r awesome and they take me higher. Please vote this up. Such an inspirational song

I seriously want an explanation why this song is so low on the chart!

Perhaps the most melodious song ever made
