66 Fade to Black - Metallica

This is an absolute classic.. It shows that not only is Metallica the greatest band in heavy metal...but also one of the greatest bands of all time

The best song made by Metallica. Must be on top - SAMARTH7

World's number 1 guitar song

67 Child In Time - Deep Purple

Ritchie Blackmore the Living Legend

Epic! Also one of the best vocal performances in metal (Ian Gillan). - Metal_Treasure

68 Sonne - Rammstein

ANY song of this band is pure awesomeness!

69 Metal Church - Metal Church

I had never heard them before, but when I did, I thought it sounded super heavy! (and I like that)

70 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

Obviously can't be in the top 10 because it's not nearly as deserving as the kings of heavy metal such as Metallica, maiden, priest, etc.

But I'm just going to vote it up because people have to realize songs like this ARE heavy metal! Most elitists my trash on it because it's the new wave of "metalcore" with a lot more emotion put into it, as well as the fan base being mostly teenage girls.

This song bleeds pure emotion from start to finish, just like any song by maiden or priest. it's just the new generation. don't shun it.

Put it in the top three at leased guys, it's the best song ever practically. Its as masterpiece. Screamo and new heavy metal is a where its at, so you Metallica lovers can just suck it up!

Not the best but deserves to be in the best

its great

71 (We Are) the Roadcrew - Motörhead
72 Helter Skelter - The Beatles

I'm amazed that these crappy misfits are considered metal when three days grace isn't.! Beatles, what a disgrace!

They got blisters on there fingers

73 Enter Sandman - Metallica

It's the first metal song I had listened and still one of the best...

Enter sandman is the Metallica anthem and it so cool because it is on one of my favorite albums

This should definitely be higher on the list. You clearly don't know what heavy metal is until you listen to this song. Everybody knows it. You're cousin's, best friend's, uncle's former college roomate knows this song.

Why the heck is this at 69? It should be at least in the top ten
