Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Old World - Leah
242 Empty Words - Death
243 Getting Smaller - Nine Inch Nails

Hey, getting 'smaller' happens to blokes in their forties. Consult your surgeon general.

244 Indestructible - Disturbed V 1 Comment
245 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

Words can't describe how good this song is. Though I'm surprised Afterlife isn't on here

Great effin song deserves top ten status. Lets all vote them in guys

I kept searching for an Avenged Sevenfold song and I'm very surprised to see it so low on the list! Should be much higher than 11!

This not only propelled them into mainstream status. It tells a very muscicly lyrically complex. Epic.

Great song and great band, they are really cool metal band!
I really love them! Inis mona is one of my favorite songs by them, and I think Slania is their best album!

249 Du Hast - Rammstein

One of the best new German hardness songs ever and one of the best 90's metal songs

Such a heavy song with awesome vocals

250 The Day That Never Comes - Metallica

WHAT?! One of Metallica's best songs is nowhere to be seen?! This is utter madness, to see a song with the best tune - one of the best choruses and and ending that makes it a metal masterpiece - to be languishing down. Need to bring it up, and bring it up fast, or the metal gods will not be pleased.

Die-hard Metallica fan here admitting that it's far from their best. Metallica taught me honesty is my only excuse.

It's not their best. It's a solid album.

251 Radio/Video - System of a Down
252 Bleed - Meshuggah

That this is 250 is a joke. it needs to be in the top 20 at least

253 Sugar - System of a Down

I agree. Their debut and Toxicity were gold, but became a bit hit and miss after that. Each to their own.

Possibly there best song, recorded in 1998 and still popular now.

I like the ballad Spiders is it? I like them.

254 Am I Evil? - Diamond Head

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.

Possibly the one of the most iconic metal songs.
