1 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

It's just great and sadly one of maidens last songs with bruce Dickinson for 7 year but it was iron maidens 90s anthem with a epic heavy riff it will go down in history as one of metals best songs

2 Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth

So glad Megadeth is above Metallica. This is their masterpiece song off of their masterpiece album. Dave Mustaine is one of the most technically perfect guitarists ever, and his writing for this song proves it.

The Best Thrash Metal Of All Time
This Record Is God of Thrash metal.
"brother Will Kill Brother'

How come a7x slipknot and System of a Down songs are higher than megadeth and Metallica? At least maiden is 4th... Just voted for holy wars Thrash metal classic

Finally at the place it deserves to be. MOP kiss my A$$

At least this is real metal! - metaldude8

4 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

A very dark and emotional song, comparable to 'Beyond the Realms of Death' by Judas Priest. Get ready to get chills. Mindblowing vocals (Hansi K├╝rsch). - Metal_Treasure

5 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

When I listen afterlife first time I'm just shocked! What a vocal! The meaning of the song is awesome.. And the guitar solo! This is just amazing... Everyone should listen up the song now... The best metal song ever...

Best song ever by by the est band ever written an amazing drummer and song writer who is no longer with us rip the rev he was the greatest

This song has a great rhythm and beat to it! And the solo is just blistering! Synyster Gates truly perfected his skills in this song.

15 Sad but True - Metallica

The riff! That is all

Metallica is the best. Love this song always...

16 Walk With Me In Hell - Lamb of God

If Metallica was 90's this song would be 2nd after master of puppets. Otherwise it's 1st or 2nd after laid to rest.

A7x 'rocks' only because they have a huge number of fangirls and fanboys! Anyways they're more pop-like hard rock than metal. This song and band is 666x better than them.

By the way where's slayer? Seasons in the Abyss and Eyes of the Insane should replace the disgraceful nu-metal Linkin Park! - Progressiveness

17 Cowboys From Hell - Pantera
18 Ashes in Your Mouth - Megadeth
19 Wings of a Butterfly - H.I.M
20 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold
