Blind Guardian - The Bard's Song (In The Forest) [Imaginations Through the Looking Glass]. - Metal_Treasure

3 Anthem - Iced Earth
4 Seek and Destroy - Metallica

This one is definitely my favorite played live off this list, but dang... there's a lot of good songs on here! Especially when they're played live! Like Creeping Death, Welcome to the Jungle (that one's a close second to Seek and Destroy), Enter Sandman, Highway to Hell, and Holy Wars... They Punishment Due are all AWESOME live! But this one just has to be the best... It's just a really good, fast, and classic Metallica song, and it is great to hear 'em play it live!

Scanning the scene in Wembley tonight!

All since 1982!

5 King of the Kill - Annihilator
6 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth

Best song Metallica ever made. Badass when live too.

Remember the DIE DIE DIE part!

Seattle 1989 is not just their best live performance, it's best live performance of humanity! - Disturbedpotato

20 Spit It Out - Slipknot

This song is amazing, in a live setting it starts off slow and quiet and builds and builds setting up a great atmosphere until the main riff kicks in.

don't underestimate this song, its very hard - ronluna

22 One Step Closer - Linkin Park

Been there, watched them do it, the stadium was full, there was signs and everything saying so, and they had everyone involved and pumped and it's brilliant.
