Best Heavy Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
42 Symptom of the Universe - Black Sabbath
43 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

Great song. This is one of the songs that you should put on and listen to before a football, baseball, hockey, or basketball game to get you pumped up. The intro is spectacular. Deserves higher on this list

Take a look to the sky just before you die - it's the last time you will!

44 Hangar 18 - Megadeth

Kids should not be aloud to vote on this list period. Mustang is breathtaking

I love this Megadeth song

This is a great metal song to be in top 5

This song should at least be in the top ten. So many catchy riffs, a song where Dave Mustaine's vocals actually work, and so many mind blowing guitar solos to count. what people?

45 Fight Fire with Fire - Metallica V 1 Comment
46 Hell Bent for Leather - Judas Priest V 1 Comment
47 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
48 Warzone - Armored Saint
49 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Why does everybody like crap like Avenged Sevenfold when they could listen to the last good thrash metal album ever produced?

The anthem of confusion ridden angst! Definitely top ten for the solo.


50 Hells Bells - AC/DC

The Young brothers doing' serious, musically excellent stuff! My favorite AC/DC track.

Best ac/dc song even satan himself likes this song


This isn't heavy metal this is hard rock. Shouldn't be on here therefore!

57 Hell Patrol - Judas Priest
58 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth
59 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple
60 Communication Breakdown - Led Zeppelin

This song isn't a heavy metal song. Not even hard rock. Its more likely a punk rock song. But the guitar riff style was quite a metal style. If you check the guitar cover then you'll see how Page used the E (low) string for the riff. Most metal guitarists use that style. But they play it faster and with more power (by holding the pick more firmly). - zxm

Whoever put this on here should've realised that this isn't a heavy metal song
