The Top Ten

1 Train in Vain - The Clash

A hidden bonus track that was added to the album "London Calling" at the very last minute and the initial pressings didn't even list the track on the sleeve. - Metal_Treasure

One of my favorite Clash songs. It has a sick guitar solo too. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

2 Distant Memories - Blind Guardian

A great bonus track to a great album (2015). I guess Blind Guardian released this song as a bonus track because it's a mellow song and they didn't want to be accused of not being heavy enough. Metal bands are criticized for the soft songs and Blind Guardian did the right thing. This song is one of the best songs on the album though - it's mellow but not poppy and cheesy. Metal bands should learn from Blind Guardian.
I like the whole song and especially the wonderful melancholy chorus:
"But still they don't know they're just caught in distant memories". - Metal_Treasure

3 Lunar Lament - Demons and Wizards

Groovy rhythm, beautiful chorus and lyrics, and perfect vocals (bonus track 2005).

"I'm existing hopelessly 'cause I can't reach the sun
Darkness covers me, my soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity 'cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for - the heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun". - Metal_Treasure

4 Wages of Sin - Theocracy

Bonus track for the Japanese edition only (2008). The album was very good, too. - Metal_Treasure

5 The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters

This song is amazing!

6 Endless, Nameless - Nirvana

It's actually one of the most destructive and it's one of my favorites - FettiMC

One of my favorites by the band, actually. - Alpha101

Plays 10 minutes after the end of Something In the Way on the CD. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

8 Aggressive Perfector - Slayer
9 Shook - Thousand Foot Krutch

Behind the song 'These Dreams'
