Top Ten Classic Rock Songs that Would Sound Good as a Metal Song
The Top Ten
This is the only song on the original remix I would agree with.
For this list we need songs with less Rock N Roll, blues and pop. And we need songs with more classical influences. I would try some songs by bands like Queen, Uriah Heep, Heart and Pink Floyd. - Metal_Treasure
It would sound terrific with deeper vocals.
This song is almost metal and it will be easy to modify it a little bit. - Metal_Treasure
This song could never ever become a metal song as there's too much RNR. It's a big mistake to think that you can take any song and by playing it faster and louder you get metal. Songs with too much blues (Led Zeppelin), pop (The Beatles), RNR (Chuck Berry) can't be turned into metal easy because you have to remove many things and add many other things. The result would be a completely different song so you may not recognise the original. - Metal_Treasure
Judas priest did a good job on covering this! 🤘 - ShahryRKnoT
It would be a badass speed metal song :D
Would be a great speed metal song
Sounds good as a thrash metal song
A little bit heavier, and close enough to doom metal
Changing a little bit with the lyrics and the vocals, and this would be a fine death metal song
Sodom released a cover of it.
The lyrics and a speedy riff would easily change into a power metal song
Yes, there is a similar song (riffs) to this song. That has same picking/strumming style. But that song was played on low E. That was the benefit for it. It's "You've Got Another Thing Comin' " by Judas Priest. - zxm
I would easily imagine certain metal bands playing this song - versions with some more metal elements by bands like Avantasia, Savatage, Blind Guardian, Dream Theater. - Metal_Treasure
I don't really think that it could become a metal song. A really old pop song maybe but not a metal song. - Anonymousxcxc
Green Day fans like to annoy me or what? -.- This song is one of what I could considered to worst!
Since when this song became classic? - zxm
I don't know. I like the song but it's too young to be considered a classic. - Anonymousxcxc
Zxm sorry, I'm really not into modern rock music... may you noticed rest of my lists about older rock/metal songs, somewhy I don't really like the stuff that were released after the '80s
This was hard Rock and it would sound good if it was turned into metal
