Top Ten Classic Rock Songs that Would Sound Good as a Metal Song


The Top Ten

1 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
3 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
4 Revolution - The Beatles

Would be a great speed metal song - somekindofaguy

5 Barracuda - Heart

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

6 Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd

The Korn Cover Is A Metal Version - Du

7 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

8 Strychnine - Sonics

Sounds good as a thrash metal song - somekindofaguy

9 Easy Livin' - Uriah Heep
10 Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin

A little bit heavier, and close enough to doom metal - somekindofaguy

The Contenders

11 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen V 1 Comment
12 Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen

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

13 Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones
14 Tales of Brave Ulysses - Cream

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

Trouble already did this. - Rambles

15 Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd

Voivod already did this. - Rambles

16 I Want It All - Queen
17 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

18 Papa Oom Mow Mow - The Rivingtons
19 Let It Be - The Beatles
20 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

I don't really think that it could become a metal song. A really old pop song maybe but not a metal song. - Anonymousxcxc
