Top 10 Most Epic Metallica Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

James at his best both on vocals n guitar, epic harmonic start followed by great guitar riffs... Legendary song..

Metallica's finest hour put into form, a true Magnum Opus that for me was a more iconic track than the much-loved Matser Of Puppets. Rhythm guitar work is simply incredible.

22 Wherever I May Roam Wherever I May Roam

The sitar is a cool opening. The way the song starts off slow and then builds and builds to the chorus is just epic, and the vocals are epic too. - Clancy

This should be up there in top 5 at least... Epic intro and great lyrics. One of the best creations of Metallica.

23 No Leaf Clover No Leaf Clover

So simple, so beautiful, so epic. No Leaf Clover is a true masterpiece by Metallica. Even for those "old Metallica" fans, this track is legendary. No Leaf Clover is not performed often enough, possibly to preserve it's awesomeness.

24 Thorn Within Thorn Within

Thorn Within is in my top 5 Metallica songs of all-time! I think it should be at least in the top 10. What is La Bamba doing here? It's not even a Metallica song. That being said, this song (i think) should be in the top 10. This is also one of Jason Newsted's favorite Metallica songs.

25 The God That Failed The God That Failed
26 Rebel of Babylon Rebel of Babylon

One of Metallica's newest hits, Rebel of Babylon combines both "old" and "new" Metallica providing satisfaction to anyone who listens to it. An awesome song with a great story and metaphorical meaning. Rebel of Babylon is almost a successor to 'One', with that Death Magnetic feel.

27 Carpe Diem Baby Carpe Diem Baby
28 Sad But True Sad But True
29 Leper Messiah Leper Messiah
30 My Friend of Misery My Friend of Misery
31 Disposable Heroes Disposable Heroes

Wow. How isn't this on the list? Some of their best riffs! And the chorus?

32 Fight Fire With Fire Fight Fire With Fire
33 The Struggle Within The Struggle Within
34 Until It Sleeps Until It Sleeps
35 Metal Militia Metal Militia

The militia should be right up top by now!

36 The Day That Never Comes The Day That Never Comes
37 St. Anger St. Anger
