Best Metallica Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 The Outlaw Torn

Just an epically-amazing song, and is by far their most underrated song. The build-up, the amazing main riff, the bass carrying the verses, the Bridge that you can't help but sing with, and two great solos. What else could you ask for?

The best song on load and by far one of Metallica's most underrated songs. Amazing lyrics.

Awesome guitar solo by Kirk, great slow building riff, atmospheric background sounds

Underrated :"(

82 Sweet Amber

Extremely underrated most people don't know what it is, so it probably won't get higher than 50 but still listen its awesome - the-rate-it-guy

Sweet Amber does not have a solo

None of songs on st. Anger have solos! This song is not all that good! Near the bottom of my list!

83 Now that We're Dead

Very very very metallica' song. Love it

84 Better Than You

Not one of their best

Not a good song.

85 Am I Savage?

I love this song. I love this album! This whole album should be at least top 25 - heavymetalrocker777

86 Blitzkrieg

Let us survive the blitzkrieg! Just a little extra song on the debut album but is still great.

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

87 Last Caress

I feel a bit rotten, having voted for this, a cover version, considering the amount of brilliant songs actually written by themselves, but 'Last Caress' (especially the way it's combined with 'Green Hell') is one of the rare examples of cover versions far superior than the original. The Misfits version is still great, too.

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

What this is a great cover top 60 at least

musat good

88 Overkill

Nice cover song of motorhead the part when song stops and shut starts the song is most amazing with light vocals by hetfield makes this song better than motorhead... Both versions are good but Metallica made a diamond from gold...

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

89 The Small Hours
90 Crash Course in Brain Surgery

Sounds like on Ride The Lightning album

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

91 Halo on Fire

The Last Part of this song (which includes the epic Solo) is the best thing Metallica has made in a very very long time... - Kaustab

James voted center is magical in this one. The vocals, harmonies, riff changes... Everything is just amazing and fits perfectly.

Amazing! The second part of the song is one of the best things Metallica has ever made!

To be completely honest, when I first heard this song, it was kind of meh for me. But when I heard it live at Foxborough, god damn this may be right up there with some of their other songs. This song is just amazing. If you don't believe it at first, watch it live (at least online) and then go from there because wow it's amazing

92 Loverman

This song has a beautiful relation between light and romantic feeling and screaming of pain feeling

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

One of James' best vocals. Nice tribute to Nick Cave!

93 Stone Dead Forever
94 Green Hell

Apparently no one's ever listened to this but me. Epic awesome.

95 Die, Die My Darling

This song is awesome... It easily deserves to be on the top ten.

This song is full of energy..

If I had undergone radiation like Bruce Banner, I will turn to Hulk, every time I listen this song! - vahaghakobyan

Not very good.

96 Thorn Within

This should definitely be higher than 96! This is one of my favorite songs from the Load album. I think this song should be at least in the top 30's. Thorn Within is an awesome song.

Even though it's a very short solo, it still kicks ass. I pretty much like everything about this song! Vote. - jennifersanchez

Jason Newsted said that this track is his favorite on Load. I don't blame him, this track really is awesome! I think it should be a little higher on this list.

Okay, I never heard of this track before. I asked one of my friends about this song and he said it was alright. So, I decided to give it a listen, and I gotta say... It's a really good song. It should be a little higher on the list!

Newsted again. Really cool song.

97 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

Not all that good!

98 Dream No More

Just THE best. This song has a unique sound which hasn't been heard from Metallica since their debut. Give it a try. You might just call a legendary beast to listen to it with you.

99 Rebel of Babylon

Rebel Of Babylon is a great song to listen to. I think this is my favorite song off of the Beyond Magnetic EP.

Not all that good.

100 Wasting My Hate

great song, pity there's no solo - CrFoSy

One of the best Metallica riffs

Beautiful song, great chorus, lyrics, guitar! One of the best Metallica's from Load

This song wasn't very good around number 70 on my list.
