Best Metallica Songs After the Black Album

The Top Ten

1 Fuel Fuel

I expected this one to be higher than 16th.

Killer intro

The main riff is righteous. Like you’re caught in the middle of an explosion.
“Quench my thirst with gasoline” is such a dope lyric

2 All Nightmare Long All Nightmare Long

Creeping Death 2.0. (? )

A serious contender for best Metallica song of all time

It's tough to decide between this and The Day That Never Comes.

This is amazing.

3 The Day that Never Comes The Day that Never Comes
4 St. Anger

Like, the only good song on St. Pepper

One Of the worst from 2003-present - wriddhak

Awesome song best from after black album except hardwired

5 Until It Sleeps

Best song my Metallica anyway

6 Bleeding Me

I think this is the best song after the Black Album in my opinion! Should be number 1.

7 The Unforgiven II
8 I Disappear
9 Spit Out the Bone

I love this album, this song is one of the reasons. Fuel is just super overrated. - SoloPotato

Best song on HWTSD. Riffs, Lyrics and solo are amazing

Why tf is this only 22? - Idiot244

10 Cyanide

The Contenders

11 The Memory Remains
12 Moth Into Flame

Amazing song, as good as the earlier stuff in my opinion,

13 My Apocalypse
14 Mercyful Fate
15 Whiskey In the Jar
16 Hell and Back
17 Suicide & Redemption

It's the best

18 Turn the Page
19 The Judas Kiss
20 King Nothing
21 Hardwired

Favorite Metallica song post-black album. Only the lyrics are kinda messed up.

Best song return of the original 5 albums

22 Thorn Within

This should be in the top 10 or even in the top 5 easily. How are songs like St. Anger ahead of this? This song rocks!

23 The Outlaw Torn

Why is this not higher - lilrocketman

24 Low Man's Lyric
25 Halo On Fire
26 Carpe Diem Baby
27 No Leaf Clover

Perfect song for an amazing concert.

28 Poor Twisted Me
29 Hero of the Day

Death Magnetic shouldn't be in here. DM is pretty much old Metallica - Sabbath

The list isn't called best old-sounding Metallica songs, it's only talking about their date of release, and DM was released after the black album. - Songsta41

30 The Unforgiven III

This is actually one of their best songs ever.

31 Atlas, Rise!

The best on Hardwired in my opinion, next to Spit out the Bone - SoldierOfFortune

32 Frantic
33 That Was Just Your Life

This is my favorite, and I don't understand why people don't see how well established song this is.

34 Some Kind of Monster
35 Ain't My Bitch

Seriously underrated! - Brobusky

36 Devil's Dance
37 Better Than You
38 2 X 4
39 Mama Said
40 Wasting My Hate
41 Fixxxer
42 Attitude
43 Rebel of Babylon
44 Hate Train
45 The House Jack Built
46 The Unnamed Feeling
47 Just a Bullet Away
48 Sweet Amber

Raw brutal and most importantly heavy as hell. I can't get enough of this song so good all the way through and the lyrics have a fantastic meaning. Not my favourite but god it's good

49 Shoot Me Again
50 Bad Seed
