The Top Ten

Beautiful song and Metallica's best. Very sad and depressing, but also very true. - Alpha101

2 "Vengeance from the grave. Kills the people he once saved!" - Iron Man

Black Sabbath's best and most well known song. Has an amazing riff and fantastic lyrics. - Alpha101

3 "...that you can't trust freedom when it's not in your hands, when everybody's fighting for their promised land." - Civil War

A very underrated Guns N Roses song, and possibly the best anti-war song ever made. - Alpha101

4 "On they fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?" - For Whom The Bell Tolls

Another Metallica masterpiece. This pretty much sums up war in a few words. - Alpha101

Easily Iron Maiden's best song, and you can see why. The lyrics are very deep and unique. - Alpha101
