Top 10 Most Hated Songs by Metal Bands

I didn't say "Most Hated Metal Songs" because some of the songs aren't metal songs but are songs by metal bands, or bands considered metal, although there are debates whether some bands are metal or not.

On this list there are 3 types of songs:
1) songs that deserve the hate
2) songs that partly deserve the hate
3) songs that don't deserve the hate they get.

The Top Ten

1 Talk Dirty to Me - Poison

Poison are a rock band, not metal. At all. Also, the song is good. - truckturner

Its from Poison and people hate it for a reason - christangrant

Poison is the greatest band of all time. - thomwim

2 No Remorse (I Wanna Die) - Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot

Hated for a reason... It's even more painful and disappointing because it comes from Slayer. - Metal_Treasure

3 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse

It's at #1 on the list Worst Metal Songs.
This is a tricky one.
It's hated mostly by people who hate death metal - by the way, I understand people who can't accept death metal and its growls and brutality.
But as a death metal song, it's not bad. However, it isn't the best death metal song of all time. It's not even among my most favorite death metal songs because I think the riff sounds pretty similar to Slayer's Raining Blood.
It's not a bad death metal song but it's overrated. I think it became popular for the controversy.
Verdict: it partly deserves the hate - Metal_Treasure

4 The Angel and the Gambler - Iron Maiden

Did this really come from Iron Maiden... - Metal_Treasure

The title of this list initially confused me. I thought it meant songs that were hated by the metal bands themselves. As in the bands hated them. But then I got my brain in gear.

And this song still blows. First three minutes are alright, but I don't need to be told 50+ times that Blaze Bayley can save my life. - IronSabbathPriest

Don't you think I'm a saviour
Don't you think I could save you
Don't you think I could save Your life

just repeat these lyrics 1000x and you have about 50% of the song - christangrant

5 Radikult - Morbid Angel

I would say it's hated for a reason. On top of it, they kinda ripped off Marilyn Manson's The Beautiful People. Why the great Morbid Angel did this to the metal fans? - Metal_Treasure

6 Losing My Senses - Megadeth

It deserves the hate, yeah. - Metal_Treasure

7 Mama Said - Metallica

Hated because it's a country song by... Metallica.
But as a country song, I think it's very good. My favorite country song, hehe.
I would say it only partly deserves the hate. - Metal_Treasure

8 The View - Lou Reed & Metallica
9 I Cum Blood - Cannibal Corpse

Hated for the lyrics - christangrant

10 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Cradle of Filth

Hated because it's a cover that ruins one of the greatest songs ever - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Breaking Their Hold - Avenged Sevenfold

I hate this mainly for the awful screamo esc vocals from M. Shadows in this track - christangrant

12 Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills - Pantera
13 Colony of Birchmen - Mastodon

It's at #7 on the list Worst Metal Songs.
What do you think about this song? - Metal_Treasure

14 St. Anger - Metallica

Yep. The one Metallica album I refuse to own, because what I've heard of it (including this artless, amateur-sounding song) sucks. Lars sounds like he's banging on paint cans. - truckturner

Can't listen to this song all the way through. Repetitive both musically and lyrically. On top of that the music is boring, I honestly find Invisible Kid to be more fun to listen to. - IronSabbathPriest

It doesn't deserve the hate if you ask me - christangrant

15 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

Aka Pears Don't Fall, LOL - Metal_Treasure

16 Crush Em - Megadeth

I really don't get the hate for this, I rather like it. - truckturner

17 Too Extreme! - Morbid Angel
18 Seven - Megadeth
19 Trashed - Black Sabbath
