Top Ten Metal Love Songs

Lem

The Top Ten

1 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Some thing tells me the only reason this song is much higher is because people aren't aware that James hefted wrote this song to his girlfriend. - Messej

Art! - Johnalove

2 Warmness On the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold
3 Snuff - Slipknot

This song is actually one of the best love songs ever... So meaningful & shows a true strong love!

An amazing song. 'If you love me then let me go, and run away before I know' - Lem

4 Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold

This list is horrible, why is there so much Avenged Sevenfold and Slipknot. So I must think these bands writes the best love songs? There are so many, so many classics and you could get something from the gothic metal and so on. Almost the whole list is full of that same crap. MY GOD

This ain't a love song by the way

5 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine
6 Threadbare - Stone Sour

I'm glad to see this here, needs recognition. - Ananya

7 I Died for You - Iced Earth

Good song in its very sense.. - Ananya

8 Love's Tragedy Asunder - Demons & Wizards

A breathtaking vocal performance by the incredible Hansi K├╝rsch - emotive, expressive and divine tone. It's difficult to write and perform a metal ballad without sounding cheesy. Yet, this song proves it's possible. Nothing's fake here and I believe every single word/note (credits to Jon Schaffer and Hansi).

This love song is really very dark but metal songs are supposed to be dark: it's about a man whose wife is terminally ill, and he assists her suicide, and ends up killing himself. - Metal_Treasure

9 Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold
10 Rainbow Eyes - Rainbow

It's outta this world. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Dreaming (Tell Me) - Yngwie Malmsteen

Classy and exquisite. Great guitars and vox (Joe Lynn Turner). - Metal_Treasure

12 Still Loving You - Scorpions
13 Imperfect - Stone Sour
14 Love Conquers All - Deep Purple
15 Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold
16 Iowa - Slipknot

This is an actual love song but in a twisted way. This song is about some serial killer kidnapping various women and making them the way way he wants them to be, like a living doll. But still it's about love to a corpse too. But relax, it's over.. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

It's still a love song, even if it isn't like the others on this list. It's really creepy:
'You are my first,
I can barely breathe
I find you fascinating
You are my favorite, '

'YOU ARE MINE, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MINE,
I CAN TEAR YOU APART
I CAN RECOMBINE YOU
ALL I WANT IS TO COVET YOU ALL
YOU BELONG TO ME
I WILL KILL YOU TO LOVE YOU (LOVE). ' - Lem

17 Love You to Death - Type O Negative
18 Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold
19 Mistreated - Deep Purple
20 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish
21 Gotten - Slash
