Best Metallica Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Mistress Dread

This is a great song.

142 Dragon
143 2 x 4

What? Why 89th place? In my opinion, 2 X 4 is one of the best Load songs! The solo is the best part of the song! Everything else in this song is pretty good as well. 2 X 4 should be higher. At least in the top 40's! - johnpaularguelles

I really love the groove to this song. Especially the solo! Everything about this song is awesome. Too bad this song is underrated! Should be at least in the top 50's or higher. Please vote for this song!

An underrated song, but still awesome! This song has an excellent groove to it. Why isn't this song in the top 20's? Please vote for this song!

My second favorite song on Load. My favorite is King Nothing.

144 Frustration
145 Hardwired

I was surprised about how good this song is. I was expecting it to be more like Enter Sandman, but nope, It was more of a Death Magnetic-like song with some Motorbreath.

I expected a lot more but it is growing on me a bit. I hope their new album is great cause I'm EXCITED for their new album! - Metalmaniakkk

This song is awesome but it's the worst of the songs on this album that I've heard so far. But still an amazing song!

Metallica at their best for a long time.

146 The Struggle Within

What the hell! This song should be in the top 20's or the top 10's. Everything about this song in my opinion is badass! The intro is pretty kickass and the solo as well!

Are you guys kidding?! This song is one of the best from the Black Album! I can't believe it's number 80 on this list. This should be way higher.

STRUGGLE! And then that epic solo comes in and after that solo ends, a certain riff makes you want to start a mosh pit! This is seriously one of Metallica's best songs!

This song is underrated! Great jam!

147 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

148 Pumping Blood
149 Purify

Such an amazing song by Metallica, although it's got a lot to compete with it should still come out near the top

PURIFY YOU AND I! Great song! The number two song on st. anger second to shoot me again!

BADASS SONG! One of the Metallica's best :D

150 All Within My Hands

This song needs to be way higher than 122! It has good riffs and all that. I also like the acoustic version of this song. In fact, I like the acoustic version a little bit more than the studio version. Please vote!

All Within My Hands should at least be in the top 60's. I say 60's because a lot of people aren't gonna vote for this anyway. But I think it's one of the best songs on St. Anger. I also love the acoustic version as well.

Not easy to listen especially the last 2 minutes. Well, James just came back from clinic. Still top 100.

It's decent

152 Free Speech for the Dumb

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

153 Dirty Window

Upvoted this song because in my opinion it's the saving grace from St. Anger.

This song and St. Anger is WAY BETTER than All Within My Hands, and its way better than that poopstorm album Load.

154 We Did It Again

156 Cheat on Me

I want a song from lulu to be in the top ten just so the more narrow minded Metallica fans get annoyed

Just voted to tell peop;e lulu is okay not great but okay definitely not the best

157 Brandenburg Gate


158 Frantic

The second best song on the album St.Anger. Frantic-tic-tic-toc.


Frantic is so good. I remember when I was listening St Anger album for the first time. I smoked weed and I put the headphones. First sound and I thought "It's sounds like the band in a garage, very raw sound but cool at the same time, wow I want to hear it again" I was listening Frantic twice that time!

This song is really touching.. Great sentiment, rhythm, melody and lyrics... Great to listen and play... You will hardly find any other songs like this from any other artists...

Ummm... this song should be in the top 10. One of Metallica's most beautiful songs. Expertly written and very touching.

This song should be on the top great vocals great lyrics I always remember my mother while I listen to this really heart touching great guitar music too.

TOP 10 must be, should be, has to be, абе заеби!

160 St. Anger

Too underrated, the drums sound so cool and are the vocals are great. I don't see why Metallica fans don't like this song.

So underrated. I love this song, probably my favourite. Don't know why no one else likes it.

Such a great song deserves a much higher position

Ok guys go to hell this is actually good should be 60 probably
