Top 10 Good Songs from Bad Albums


The Top Ten

1 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback

Best Nickelback Song They Really Did Well On This Song - christangrant

2 It's My Life - Bon Jovi

I can't say it's a bad album since I haven't heard it but I do agree that this is a good song. The chorus really fires me up. - Britgirl

3 Trilogy Suite Op:5 - Yngwie

The other songs on this album aren’t good only from metal viewpoint - they are too poppy. Other than that, songs aren't bad and Mark Boals is really an amazing singer (Liar, You Don't Remember I'll Never Forget).

But the metal instrumental “Trilogy Suite Op:5” is great. - Metal_Treasure

4 Until It Sleeps - Metallica

From Load, 1996.
A song about Hetfield's mother who died of cancer with no medical help when he was 16. His parents were Christian Scientists and did not believe in medicine. Hetfield felt that had she not followed her Christian Science beliefs, she could have survived. She was too young. - Metal_Treasure

5 Fuel - Metallica
6 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

Afraid to Shoot Strangers, Childhood's End and Fear Is The Key could also be on the list. - Alkadikce

7 Cathedral Spires - Judas Priest

From Jugulator, with Tim 'Ripper' Owens - Metal_Treasure

8 Under Pressure - Queen

From Hot Space

9 Trust - Megadeth
10 Bleeding Me - Metallica

From Load, 1996 - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Headless Cross - Black Sabbath

This is a listenable album, but I absolutely love this song - ryanrimmel

With Tony Martin. - Metal_Treasure

12 Inside Out - Anthrax
13 Say You Will - Foreigner
14 Screaming from the Sky - Slayer
15 A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay

Worst song on the album though

16 St. Anger - Metallica
17 Va Va Voom - Nicki Minaj

This album is worse than the Pinkprint because the latter had Grand Piano, Pills N Potions, etc. AAAHH YOU WIN PUBLICK L! - AlphaQ

18 Crush - Anthrax
19 Seven - Gamma Ray
20 Beautiful - Eminem

Great song. Relapse is Eminem's worst album. Mediocre album but it goes on the bottom when it comes to albums by Shady. - AlphaQ

Really pleasant song

21 Fueled - Anthrax
22 Mockingbird - Encore
23 Kill the DJ - Green Day
24 No Type - Rae Sremmurd

This has got to be the best song from SremmLife. Wait...I think Safe Sex Pay Checks could be better...meh.

This beat is actually kinda sick though Safe Sex Pay Checks has the best beat. No Type also has alright lyrics.

I'll come back if I can decide with No Type or Safe Sex Pay Checks. - AlphaQ

25 When the Tigers Broke Free - Pink Floyd

I don't think Pink Floyd ever made a bad album but this is definitely their worst. - BrianScott01

26 Castle of Glass - Linkin Park

Living Things was probably Linkin Parks Weakest album but this song is amazing - christangrant

27 Love on the Brain - Rihanna
28 Castle on the Hill - Ed Sheeran

Good song - 445956

29 Twinkle Song - Miley Cyrus


30 Romeos - Alphaville
31 Always - Erasure
32 Cold Sweat - Megadeth

At #10 because it's a Thin Lizzy cover - the best song on Super Collider (2013). - Metal_Treasure

33 Drive - Miley Cyrus
34 Safe Sex, Pay Checks - Rae Sremmurd

This isn't good. It's mediocre and somewhere around there but it's strong compared to Rae's other stuff. - AlphaQ

I think this might be the best song of SremmLife. Tied with No Type. It's got the best beat too. I can't decide between this and No Type. I'll come back when I can decide. - AlphaQ

35 She Wolf - Megadeth
36 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

To be honest. Purpose is actually a pretty decent album. - AlphaQ

I think you meant crap song from alright album. - AlphaQ

37 Eez-Eh - Kasabian
38 Frantic - Metallica
39 What Do You Mean - Justin Bieber

Purpose is pretty decent to be honest. - AlphaQ

40 Hold Me - Weezer
41 Supremacy - Muse
42 Never Ending - Rihanna

Has a meaning unlike the hits on this album - Hotheart123

43 Duke Nukem Theme - Megadeth

On Japanese Version Of Risk - christangrant

44 Kingmaker - Megadeth
45 Iced Honey - Lulu
46 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd

Great song! Rae Sremmurd is awful and crap and I've never imagine something like this from Rae Sremmurd. - AlphaQ

Artist and song is trash. Does not deserve to be here


47 It's Not Your Fault - New Found Glory

Coming Home was the first pop punk album that I seen more a pop influence than a punk influence, I didn't liked, but this song is not bad

48 Talking to Myself - Linkin Park

This was a good song of their worst album - christangrant

49 I Am Morbid - Morbid Angel
50 10 More Dead - Morbid Angel

This and I Am Morbid are the only descent songs on Illud Divinium Insanus - christangrant
