83 Am I Evil? - Diamond Head

Diamond Head may have lost their chance to succeed, but they did give us an amazing song in the form of the epic "Am I Evil? ". While Metallica's cover is good, the original is Diamond Head's and it is the classic that influenced a whole wave of Thrash bands (Need proof? Then which song did the Big Four played live together? ). It is such a shame that many NWOBHM bands that aren't named Iron Maiden, definitely Leppard and maybe Saxon have remained cult bands at best.

No seriously, why is this at 119? This song influenced the entire thrash Genre!

Essention of heavy metal.

84 Lucretia - Megadeth
85 In Your Face - Children of Bodom V 1 Comment
86 Highway Star - Deep Purple
87 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish
88 Peace Sells - Megadeth
89 Heavy Metal - Sammy Hagar
90 The Four Horsemen - Metallica

This is the best song in the world. where is fuel

91 Eve of the Apocalypse - Malevolent Creation
92 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden

One of the best metal tracks from one of the premier metal bands of all time. I would rank this masterpiece in the top 10 of maiden's best. Tempo changes and Classic Steve Harris laying it down makes this one of my all time favorites.

Such a fab song... You don't get the hang of it at once... But when you complete the song n listen to it once more.. You r blown by its sheer beauty n solos... Iron Maiden really kicks ass.. Up the Irons

Way too low on this list.

Personally I believe this to be the best metal song ever, it's so unlike anything else and sweeps you along. Plus you get over 9 mins of thise awesomeness! Win-win

93 Battle Hymn - Manowar

It's kinda funny (not really) how Manowar's 1st mentioning on the list is #94... They performed at a consistently high level through the Heavy Metal times and while not as commercially successful, musically they definitely in the top 10 bands and their should be at least half a dozen of their songs in top 10

This song is very good and coming from my heavy metal experience this is such a great song.

Really good song, but really underrated
