Best Metallica Songs

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Moth Into Flame Moth Into Flame

This is probably one of the best Metallica songs since...And Justice For All, and almost as good as some of the 80s Metallica songs, but I have a feeling that this will be the best song from the album, meaning that the album will probably be worse than Death Magnetic was. - DarkenedBrutality

Gotta say, this is the best Metallica song in a while. It may not be the best of all, but it still deserves the top 10. This is the Metallica that everyone knows. The lyrics tell a tale of a greed a fame, as if it were a moth addicted to light. The drums and the guitar make the song epic. This song needs more attention because it's a good song

Awesome man! I love this song. A masterpiece of metallica, classical thrash. This must top many metallica songs and will do better in the near future. This album would be better than anyone would think.

Best song since the black album! The way its built makes it soundlike the old Metallica, but in 2017!

62 The God That Failed The God That Failed

This song should be higher! It's great and written about James Hetfield's Mum! She gave us the best band ever! So higher please!

Awesome intro to the song! One of the best Metallica intros in my opinion. The whole song is so amazing! It should be in top 30

All the load reload and st anger and covers IN MY OPINION should be in the end they should rank the songs of the other albums first and then of these 3 albs and the covers and the other discs

My ex-girl ditched me!

63 Broken, Beat & Scarred Broken, Beat & Scarred

What in heaven's name is this?! One of Metallica's most legendary songs with an insane intro, epic chorus, god-like riffs and a most memorable latter half, to make this one of best Metallica's songs. But because it is made by 'new' Metallica, it doesn't get the votes. True, if this was part of Master Of Puppets, everyone would rave about it. But no, stupid Metallica fans feel that 'new Metallica' is not great. That is downright idiocy and anyone who says such a thing should be burned alive. Yes, there's no such thing as 'new' or 'old' Metallica, Metallica IS Metallica IS THE BEST METAL BAND EVEN TODAY! And if you truly appreciate music, you would know that Death Magnetic is a really energizing album and this song, along with My Apocalypse, Judas Kiss, Cyanide and All Nightmare Long should be placed higher. So vote quickly and get them up if you have any respect for these Metal Gods.

Why in heaven's name is this languishing here?! This is madness. The divine riffs, brilliant beats, the conviction with which hetfield sings and of course the godly chorus definitely make this one of Metallica's best. I hate Metallica fans who compare 'old Metallica' with the 'new' one. There is no such thing as 'old' and 'new' Metallica. Had this song been in Master of Puppets or And Justice For All, everyone would be raving about it. But because it is in death magnetic no one likes. That's just idiotic so say the least and such fans honestly have no taste and are not true fans of metal, let alone of Metallica. Better be placed up soon, and if you haven't heard this song, you better, if you consider yourself to be a true Metallica fan.

This song should definitely be at least on top 10! It's awesome!
This is my favorite Metallica song!

61! I'm all about old Metallica, but his is arguably the closest to it from new Metallica and easily New's best piece of art they've made. simply amazing

64 Hero of the Day Hero of the Day

Beautiful song especially the echoes, should be in the top 10!

This song is very different, it has a happy sounding guitar even if the lyrics might say something different. I like it

Really? This song deserves WAY more credit. I mean, Kirk himself said it had one of his favorite solos. This, under Vulturous? Seriously?

This song is underrated in my opinion! This is one of the six good songs on Load! The others being!
1. King nothing
2. Ain't my bitch
3. The house Jack built
4. 2X4
5. Mama said
6. Hero of the day

All the others suck!

65 No Remorse No Remorse

I love it becouse its one of the best live songs from metallica. Other good live songs in my opinion are fight fire with fire, trapped under ice, seek and destroy, four horsemen and battery. When I was at a metallica consert in helsinki no remorse was easily the best moment of the gig :P

Great song off "Kill 'Em All

0:00-0:55 Take me to Paradise City

I like this song!

66 Mercyful Fate Mercyful Fate

A very awesome and a very underrated cover song. This song is one of my favorite cover songs from the Garage Inc. Album. Should be at least in the top 30's. Despite it being 11 minutes long, this song is still pretty awesome! Please vote!

Metallica has an uncanny knack for making great covers. This medley is very impressive, most notable the "Evil" part.

This song is just so awesome, powerful guitar riffs and amazing drums clearly top 10

It's not a Metallica song it's a cover shouldn't be on this list.

Kill Em' All is there greatest album and you cannot beat it. This is probably the best from that album. They should of made this longer, but it's 3 minutes of awesomeness. And if we are talking about thrash. Listen to this Song AND this Album! Kill Em All All the way! - Drummerlevi12

Umm... Why is this song AT NUMBER 70? Has no one listened to Metallica's classic debut, Kill 'Em All? People need to get their ears cleaned and their ears sharpened! This is THE best Metallica song and there is no doubt about it!

This really should be in the top 10. PEOPLE LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND BE AMAZED! No really

Why is this masterpiece not in the Top 10? I don't get it! No other Metallica song has such a power like this one!

68 Stone Cold Crazy Stone Cold Crazy

It's not a Metallica it's a queen cover. But queen did this song like a bunch pansies! Metallica made this song good! This is the best cover on this album!

Crazy cover, probably my favourite of Garage Inc. It has some INSANE drumming - BeeBlue

Extra from RTL

69 Hell and Back Hell and Back

Great song about James Hetfield's alcoholism. Definitely needs to be much higher. It is very underrated and should at least be in the top 50

Slither is better than this?! Never! This is the best song from the Beyond Magnetic EP. Should be at top 30 at least

Beyond magnetic is a terrible album! All these songs suck! But I do like the meaning of this song.

70 (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth

Amazing bass intro should be top 10! Cliff Burton days Were the best But there other stuff is still amazing!

69th, really. This is a good bass solo. Pretty much the "Eruption" of Metallica. A good song, and pretty much one of the reasons why Cliff Burton was Metallica's best member. Also because he did a good job writing the songs on Ride The Lightning, except for Trapped Under Ice and Escape. I'm just glad this is above the horrible My Apocalypse.

Why kill em all songs so damn low... This is cliff burton were talking about anaesthesia!

This is pure genius, and should be heralded as the eruption of bass

This song is awesome!
Maybe not a top 10 but it really should be far more up on the list.

Awesome song, not so freaked, no amazing solos but, I don't know why, I love it!

Hell. I never went beyond "Turn The Page" in Garage Inc. But, when I just recently heard this one, I could not help playing it over and over again. Especially, when they grunt out that "Hey! ", O my god, you feel like screaming out loud with it!

This songs means a lot to me. it helped me on my bed days. whenever I listen it, I still roll over it

73 The Judas Kiss The Judas Kiss

Great song from death magnetic...
And my favourite also... It was also my first Metallica song now I have all song...

Most original on Death Magnetic

Have you heard the riff on this song. Its amazingly difficult to play and sounds almost as good as creeping deaths second riff

Another good song from the album. May not be the greatest but still good. - LightningBlade

74 The Unnamed Feeling The Unnamed Feeling

Great song. Awesome destorted guitar, and the lyrics are so deep. I love st. Anger don't care what anyone says

This song just explains how I feel almost all the time. I love it.

Such an underrated song. The Unnamed Feeling is honestly some of Metallica's best work! Love this song and it should be much further down!

Higher no doubt

75 Atlas, Rise Atlas, Rise

While better than Moth into Flame and Hardwired, the song "Atlas, Rise" is still predictable for Metallica. Great opening riff and breakdown, followed by a mediocre Kirk Hammet solo. However, sometimes predictable is still good. This song should wind up being in the top 50.

Better than Moth into Flame, and better than Hardwired, but there are still some Death Magnetic songs that are better than this.

Atlas Rise! Great song from Great album. Love video when lars using wah wah and guitar solo is amazing at the same time. Watch it guys. So good vibrations.

This is the future and the past of heavy metal classics!

76 Holier Than Thou Holier Than Thou

I would go as far and say that this is the best Metallica song ever.
The guitars and the bass is so perfect in this track, by far the best on the black album.

Higher! It's just a cool song and definitely better than others above.
I just love the part when the three guitars come in after the bass

Come on! This song should be higher than 75! Probably the "thrashiest" song on the black album. Pretty much everything about this song is awesome! Especially the solo and the bass part! Vote.

How is this in #129...?

The song has a fantastic melody of chorus! THIS BLOODY DAY I LOST MY WAY! GREAT RIFF!

This track is good. It is one of the better tracks on Load. Too bad it is so underrated.

The riff is so good and the meaning of the song is just scary. should be way higher on the list

This song is so awesome! Why ain't it in the top 10?

78 Devil's Dance Devil's Dance

This song should be in the top ten obviously! great guitars drums, rhythm and energy! what else could you ask? its awesome!

My favourite Metallica song... Just love the starting music... It turns me on! Surely... Should've been in the top 10...

This is my favorite song ever but there are songs with better guitar solos, rhythm, and have deeper lyrical sense; I do however think it should be top 25-30

This song should be in top ten! I LOVE IT!

79 Carpe Diem Baby Carpe Diem Baby

Why isn't this song n the top 20's? Still Wondering! M 14 But Metal For Life! METALLICA METALLiCa MetallICA! Then Make me miss you! Total Competition to Master Of Puppets! Amazing Music!

Carpe Diem Baby should be in the top 30's in my opinion. Amazing music! One of the best songs on ReLoad, if not THE best song on ReLoad! I like the groove in this song!

This song is awesome. Should be higher than 95! At least in the top 30's. I love pretty much everything about this song. The solo sounds very awesome in this song. I also love the groove to this one! Please vote.

I really enjoy this song. Sick tune. Really underrated.

I can't believe this song is this far down the list! GREAT SONG!

It's this far down on the list because it's a cover.
