Top 10 Metal Songs of the 70s with the Best Choruses


The Top Ten

1 Stargazer - Rainbow

Such a wonderful and Amazing song - christangrant

2 Highway Star - Deep Purple

There are a lot of things to love in this song. the screaming vocals of Ian Gillan was another thing to notice in this song. - zxm

I scream the chorus every time I listen to this song.
"I love it and I need it, I bleed it. Yeah it's a wild hurricane, alright hold tight. I'm a highway star" - Metal_Treasure

3 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

You can hear the chorus on the song sample:
"Yeah! I've left the world behind, I'm safe here in my mind. I'm free to speak with my own kind. This is my life, this is my life, I'll decide not you". - Metal_Treasure

4 Dissident Aggressor - Judas Priest

You can hear it on the smaple: "Stab! Bawl! Punch! Crawl! Hooks to my brain are well in. Stab! Bawl! Punch! Crawl! I know what I am, I'm Berlin" - Metal_Treasure

5 Kill the King - Rainbow
6 Look at Yourself - Uriah Heep
7 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow
8 Symptom of the Universe - Black Sabbath

The chorus is only "yeah yeah yeah" but sounds good.
I actually wanted to add Children of the Grave, my favorite metal song by Black Sabbath with Ozzy but guess what: it has no chorus! Just realized that and instead to this list I added Children of the Grave to another list - Top 10 Metal Songs Without a Chorus. - Metal_Treasure

9 Burn - Deep Purple

The chorus is a sustain on the word "burn" which is pretty difficult, mostly because it's 8 seconds long. The average length of the sustains in that era was much shorter. You can hear it on the song sample. - Metal_Treasure

10 Easy Livin' - Uriah Heep

The Contenders

11 Stained Class - Judas Priest
12 A Light in the Black - Rainbow
