The Top Ten

1 Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

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

2 We Will Rock You - Queen We Will Rock You - Queen
3 Barracuda - Heart Barracuda - Heart

This song is almost metal and it will be easy to modify it a little bit. - Metal_Treasure

4 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
5 Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd

The Korn Cover Is A Metal Version - Du

6 Revolution - The Beatles Revolution - The Beatles

Would be a great speed metal song - somekindofaguy

7 Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry

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

12 Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones
13 Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen

Changing a little bit with the lyrics and the vocals, and this would be a fine death metal song - somekindofaguy

14 I Want It All - Queen I Want It All - Queen
15 Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd
16 Tales of Brave Ulysses - Cream Tales of Brave Ulysses - Cream

The lyrics and a speedy riff would easily change into a power metal song - somekindofaguy

17 Let It Be - The Beatles Let It Be - The Beatles
18 Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival

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

19 Papa Oom Mow Mow - The Rivingtons Papa Oom Mow Mow - The Rivingtons
20 Baba O'Riley - The Who Baba O'Riley - The Who

This is song is fine how it is... but okay - Lucretia
