The Top Ten

1 Holy Diver - Dio

There's a truth that's hard as steel

2 Stargazer - Rainbow
3 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

No metal song more classic. - MetalPope

4 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
5 Rainbow in the Dark - Dio

So sad... 41 songs on this list and I had to add this masterpiece at #42. I expected to see this song in the top 5, at least. - Metal_Treasure

Rainbow? Dark?

6 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Better is subjective. More people thought this album was worth buying than last in line or holy diver, or even heaven in hell, which was very groundbreaking at the time...

BS second release that went 4x Platinum, unlike any in the dio catalog.

Better Sales doesn't mean It's better (Which Dio's albums are better) - christangrant

Greatest rock,metal"whatever" song ever written
period. All the songs Black Sabbath has put out all have a different beat,as to some bands their songs all sound the same.Tony Iommi is number one hands down.

7 Turn Up the Night - Black Sabbath
8 A Light in the Black - Rainbow

Another masterpiece... so sad it's too low. - Metal_Treasure

9 Push - Dio
10 Give Her the Gun - Dio

Great track off of strange highways.
