3 Out in the Fields - Gary Moore & Phil Lynott Out in the Fields - Gary Moore & Phil Lynott

This song is great power metal and more than 10 metal bands did covers. - Metal_Treasure

4 Bird of Prey - Uriah Heep Bird of Prey - Uriah Heep
5 The Nile Song - Pink Floyd The Nile Song - Pink Floyd

This is closer to grunge than to metal - don't you hear an early Kurt Cobain/Nirvana in this song? - Metal_Treasure

Watch man, I know how most of these songs are only hard rock, I just putted some songs before someone else dumbass put it... - somekindofaguy

6 Set Me Free - The Sweet Set Me Free - The Sweet

Obviously influenced by Deep Purple, this song even has a ripped off element from "Flight of the Rat" by Deep Purple but this is a metal song. "Set Me Free" was covered by Saxon. - Metal_Treasure

8 Thunder and Lightning - Thin Lizzy Thunder and Lightning - Thin Lizzy
9 Crying in the Rain - Whitesnake Crying in the Rain - Whitesnake

This is hard rock, just because they mention "Demons" doesn't mean it's metal. - Metal_Treasure
