Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 16

301 Different World - Iron Maiden
302 The End of the Line - Metallica

More of this please Metallica. And from what I understand they are working with Rick Rubin again and the new album shall be in the same vein.

It certainly is the end of the line for Metallica. They just don't know it.

303 Tentative - System of a Down

It's a bit too tentative for my liking.

304 Cars - Fear Factory
305 Watching Over Me - Iced Earth
306 Breaking the Silence - Queensr├┐che
307 Crush - Anthrax
308 Darkside of Aquarius - Bruce Dickinson
309 Kirisute Gomen - Trivium
310 Symptom of the Universe - Black Sabbath
311 Energize Me - After Forever
312 Sarcastic Existence - Sepultura
313 Slaves and Bulldozers - Soundgarden

Crushing metal song and album.

314 Trust - Megadeth

Mustaine and Metallica feuds undermined both bands. All bands pay tribute to other bands. Mustaine was criticised for peace sells for lacking structure, so he felt obliged to make it structured. It's music fans that screw up music, as you have noticed.

I actually like this song and album. It's not Megadeth at what most would consider their best, but I like experimentation, so long as it's metal. Mustaine, like Metallica, could easily write thrash after thrash, but they didn't. Both are gamblers. So What? and Risk a few.

Not their best but the drum intro is pretty darn awesome

315 When the Smoke Is Going Down - Scorpions
316 Night Witches - Sabaton
317 Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne V 1 Comment
318 Nymphetamine Fix - Cradle of Filth

AMAZING song guys!... cradle's best work till date... and rightfully grammy nominated... though hOw it lost out to slayer's eyes of the insane I don't understand.. listen to it!... this deserves to be much much higher up in the list..

beautiful. but I also love megadeth, I think megadeth songs should occupy the top ten, and this beautiful song at number 11.

Its amazing one by C.O.F I even listen to it when I'm typing this
simply awesome

My best friend has been trying to get me to do it for years, without success. Lol

319 Warriors of the World United - Manowar

They're Australian. They are officially the greatest hard rock band. I don't know why people they're otherwise. I guess to outsiders it may sound otherwise. But I love Bon Scott and Back in Black. But stopped after that.

The power of true Heavy Metal! Yeah, that's what it is, I can't understand people saying AC/DC is Metal... according to me that is Rock or Hard rock. Stick to the topic.

Great vocal with great lyrics saying about the fight for the metal wars... Really a heavy metal songs must listen..

They are actually regarded as cheesy here. No offense. Each to their own.

320 Rooster - Alice in Chains

Woah. I just voted for Alice in Top 10 metal. And this and Again are the only two Alice songs on here? Once again I'll scream "Them Boones"! However, Rooster really is a deep and very well-respected track; it's just divine. Murky, slow-building atmosphere brilliance. Love the way Layne delivers the chorus, so much feeling and defiance.

This song is great, it just rocks, please replace the final with this!

Great track from a great album. Them Bones was metal, then they would switch to heavy rock like this one, then go back to metal. Well ahead of their time.

Yes. I have all of their albums and ep's. All are quality.
