Best Metal Songs of 2020

Since some debates on what is and isn't metal are expected here alike most metal lists, ultimately the debates have mostly been inconclusive, opinionated and hence subjective. Due to its subjective nature, songs from questionable genres like Alternative Metal, Nu-Metal, Metalcore, Deathcore etc are allowed here for now. If you don't consider them metal, don't vote for it. Vote for something that you consider metal, instead of voting on a non-metal item just to complain about it's "non-metalness". Keep in mind, this is not at all a validation for someone to submit a Pop song here for example. Vote for the best metal songs of this year.
