Best Metal Songs
The Contenders: Page 10
So underrated! How can't this song be in the top ten? Without Diamond Head there ain't no Megadeth or Metallica, there simply ain't no Thrash!
Don't worry. James and Lars openly tip their lid to Diamond Head. They couldn't have payed more homage to them if they tried - which they did.
Yay! Pass this on to James and co. As a reminder.
THIS IS THE MOST METAL SONG OF ALL TIME! HOW DID IT GET ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 332?!?
THIS IS MADNESS!
From an album named The Blackening, with a black cover, and a bonus track named Battery. Machine Head's Black album.
When Holy Diver is ranked so high, it's strange to see the song that typically gets mentioned in the same discussion as the best Dio song so low on this list.
I actually skip this song. The chorus is forced melody. The album represents Iron Maiden's fine form beginning to wane in my opinion.V 1 Comment
Ian Gillan conquering the galaxy with his voice. Listen to the record from their album Live in Japan.
I prefer the album version. It is a song of such majesty that only Stargazer comes even remotely close.
Epic! Beast! Emotive! Adjectives?
It's metal, I can believe - zxm
"Revolution the only solution" - arpanhmr
Very good screaming. Good lyrics. It's a pretty old song(1998). Just listen once. Proper heavy metal! - arpanhmr
I love their debut.
GOOD SONG BUT START OF SONG NEEDS TO BE FASTER TO SLOW ON CD
Yeah, I have one of theirs but vinyl sucks. Too lazy to play it.
The best song by one of the most iconic death metal bands.
To be honest, I haven't even heard them. I was going with the flow, but you heard me out. The names? Needs to change if they want to make it.
This is the best Avenged Sevenfold song so far. It should definitely be higher.
I have one of theirs, and the lead guitarist is very talented.
Very Good song, should be ranked a but higher...
Lol! You only needed to go to one of their early 80's shows and experience what a lesson in violence meant when 'A Lesson in Violence' was played.
Most awesome Solos ever! Great Riff and solid vocals by One of the Best Metal Bands with unbelievable Technical skill
THIS IS THE BEST SONG EVER BEATS ALL OF THE Other stuff except for run to the hills and the number of the beast but it still beats that - Deeds48
Megadeth should have more songs on this list, they're awesome. This song is really good, with 12 solos, all of them killer, a lot of techinque, strong vocals, good lyrics, awesome song.
If 11 solos doesn't get people voting for this I don't know what doesV 8 Comments
