The Top Ten

1 Turn the Page - Bob Seger

This song is very good. - Userguy44

Mercyful fate is better than this song. I've heard both versions of this one thousands of times.

2 Mercyful Fate - Mercyful Fate

1. Mercyful Fate
2. Am I Evil?
3. Last Caress/Green Hell
4. Helpless
5. The Wait

22. Stone cold crazy
23. It's electric
24. So what
25. The more I see
26. Free speech for the dumb
27. Whisky in the jar-o

Everything seems to fit together... Lars' drummng, Kirk and James' guitar playing/vocals, and Jason's backing vocals and bass.

WHAT?!? why is this not at number one? the guitar work, the drums, the catchy tunes, the great vocals, the variety of like six different songs in one... sounds like a winner to me!

Wait... is that...lars... doing GOOD drumming?

4 Whiskey in the Jar - Thin Lizzy

Really this song is amazing when Metallica put their twist on it
My favorite cover song of all time

Best Metallica song ever.. Heavy intro till the ending part
Much better than thin izzy.. This should be on the top

5 Astronomy - Blue Oyster Cult

This is the best song from Garage, and in general, BOC was a great band, and astronomy is an antological song

In my opinion, this is the best song on Garage Inc. Mercyful Fate and Am I Evil? Are both a close second though.

My personal favorite song on this album! Should be higher on this list.

Very awesome song! I think it should be number 1. m/

6 Stone Cold Crazy - Queen

I love both versions. I like the way James sings it. - Userguy44

As much as I adore queen, I think James’s voice suited the song better. - DaringXx

Queen sucked and Metallica is the best band of any genre. Pretty much sums it up.

@Visitor. You don't know what you're talking about man. Queen made one of the first trash metal songs and they inspired Metallica to make a cover of that song. And what makes Metallica better? I love both Queen and Metallica! - Userguy44

15 Loverman - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

I added this with the original artist. Metallica did an amazing version of this song. Metallica’s version of Loverman is the closest thing to a sexy-sounding song. I don’t think so, but the vocals and some lyrics make it understandable. - PhoenixAura81

16 Breadfan - Budgie
17 Sabbra Cadabra - Black Sabbath

This has both sabbra cadabra and a national acrobat

Best song on album

20 Crash Course in Brain Surgery - Budgie

Oh my god- I love this song. So much. The bass is almost enough to make up for all of the missing bass on AJFA, and the solo is amazing. Criminally underrated!

22 Helpless - Diamond Head UListen to Sample
23 The Wait - Killing Joke
